We will be going back for sure! Every thing was great. We had a large chartucherrie board and small plates, delicious wine. Only complaint was its a bit pricey.

I booked a reservation for this restaurant for my friend’s birthday. I am not from the area and never visited this establishment before. I found it online, referred to their lovely Instagram account, and later heard from a coworker that this was a nice place. When we arrived, we ordered different wine tasting flights, but also shared a pita spread, charcuterie board, along with two small plates. This was all followed by a delicious dessert of the ice cream chocolate chip cookie sandwich and churros. I was pleasantly surprised that this abundance and variety was reasonably priced for a party of two, which made celebrating my friend’s birthday so much more special and exciting. I look forward to spending future special occasions at this wine bar. All of the wines were fantastic, including the yes way rosé tasting flight!! We occupied our table for close to three hours In the back room and as the other patrons finished and the tables were cleared, the staff did not rush us to leave while they were setting up for a dancing room & DJ. A great experience was had by all. We are very satisfied!

Very good food in a welcoming atmosphere. Our server was very nice, knowledgeable & provided good service. Monday’s are 1/2 price on bottles of wine and also bottomless modules. They were very accommodating to our party of 7.

We had the cauliflower and meat balls to start, a must.
For dinner we had the truffle pasta, braised short rib pasta and the chilean sea bass.
Everything was wonderful and the service was great too.
I can't wait to go back

Everything was good , except my only suggestion would be for the staff to follow lead with the patrons.. If they would like to pace their stay and experience. suggesting that people are waiting for a table to ignore them , but there was nobody waiting for our table. The service was too attentive and we felt very rushed. It wasn’t just our server, it was various staff members who kept coming over and rushing us. We were in and out in one hour and there was nobody waiting for our table.

As expected Meritage Wine Bar steakhouse night popup was amazing!!

We started with the market potatoes and chipotle butter which were full of flavor along with a rosé flight which was so fun! Had no idea they had flights

Entrees of filet mignon (a special cut tonight!) with red wine butter and skirt steak with red wine jus (I literally wanted to dunk everything in it and even straight up drink it). The chef even brought out a surprise treat of beef tataki to sample from their special menu Tuesday night and honestly I wouldve ordered a tray of it, absolutely incredible sweet flavor.

Side of truffle mac (full of truffle flavor and extra creamy) and some of the best onion rings I’ve ever had, that breading was WOW

To end was a perfectly warm pina colada bread budding with toasted coconut topped ice cream, divine!!!

The staff is always so lovely and great ambiance, can’t wait to go back! Thank you☺️

We had a wonderful meal at Meritage! Truffle pasta and a beet salad were among my favorites. Service is inexperienced and forgot two items : ie shrimp for the salad, a drink . Just need a little patience but it’s worth it fir the great quality good!

Had many a wonderful dining experience here before the pandemic. This was the first one after. Delicious charcuterie and fine Paring pinot noir. Excellent, varied menu, ranging from small plates to an extensive selection of full plates. You won't get lost in the small but excellent wine list and we've never had anything on it that wasn't a winner. Highly recommended.

we love this place! the food never disappoint, the service is very good and personal. they have great cocktail menu and large very impressive wine menu for bottles however, the wine by the glass options are very disappointed for a wine bar specially such a good one (we tried all their wine by the glass and found each one of them way bellow food level). with that being said, we will continue going since we love everything else there! highly recommend

Was not at all impressed. Food was mediocre. For a wine bar they did not have much of a selection. Restaurant needed a little work, speakers hanging from the walls by the string, walls could use a coat of fresh paint.

Second time we've eaten there. Ate outside as the weather was finally warm after sunset. Service was slower than we liked but everything we ate and drank was outstanding so that more than made up for it. Plus it made our dinner out more of a nice night out at long last!!!! 👍

Enjoyed a lovely meal here on a Saturday night. Staff runs like a fine tuned machine so none of that Saturday night missteps that can disrupt a nice evening. Have enjoyed several dinners here but tonight we just felt like eating light and split the seafood tower. All the selections were fresh and iced properly. The oysters were especially wonderful as were the lobster tails.
After being so good we decided to be very bad and each ordered a dessert .. the chocolate chip cookies and ice cream yum .. and the flourless chocolate cake with caramel .. perfect
A great transition out of covid restaurant that still follows protocols and leaves room between tables. Eat in or out all seatings have a pleasant ambience
Glen Cove has definitely come a long way with an establishment like this thriving in our down town.

Our food was very yummy. We had a reservation and we were seated immediately where we asked (high top booth). The ambiance has a city life vibe with floor to ceiling open doors to the outdoor seating. They had a fancy bar area and high top booths, 2 dining rooms and it looked like a private party room in the back. The food was delish we ate the Caprese sandwich and truffle fettuccine homemade pasta and split a cheese board as an appetizer!

Excellent experience for the Mothers Day brunch. Greeted with very friendly service, manager welcomed us before the open and made it feel special for brunch. The food is delicious on the brunch menu as are the cocktails - A++(one of the best Bloody Mary). They offer wine pairings/tasting and have a few cool options to switch up the palette. Manager/Owner again was a super cool gentlemen and the ambiance was worthy of a revisit to the G.Cove strip


Will recommend and visit in a few weeks!

Wife and I love the knowledgeable and helpful staff. Their recommendations were on point. We can't get enough of the charcuterie board and wine and cocktail selection. Great spot for a date night. We plan on coming back for one of their weekly tastings.

I’ve been to Meritage before, and the food/service is always on point. Last night after being seated, we waited 30 minutes before our server came to take our drink orders and, when we ordered dessert, the restaurant was clearing out and no dessert arrived until a different server asked if there was anything else we needed (restaurant was closing in about 15 minutes). Usually really enjoy Meritage but I just think it was an off evening for service!

It was awesome! I’m not a big fan of charcuterie board cuisine but my date loved it, the quality of the food was great, good selection of wines, and servers were extremely kind. Great experience would recommend!
