Meritage is in The Boston Harbor Hotel and probably deserves five stars. The Executive Chef, Daniel Bruce, once explained that Meritage started as a by product of the Wine festival.
It is a very attractive restaurant with contemporary lighting and SubZero wine refrigerators at the entrance. It also looks out on the courtyard of the hotel and the Boston Harbor.
The menu is also very interesting with many unusual foods in a menu that reads like a wine menu(hard to describe). All the foods can be served as an appetizer at $16 or a dinner at $30. Our waiter recommended 2 aps and 1 dinner. Doing the math in my barbaric brain, I discovered that it is a bunch of dough to eat here. BUT, parking normally $14 elsewhere was complimentary so think of it as trading parking for salad.
The salad(parking) was excellent. A cucumber wrap seem to hold a deceptively large bunch of greens. The scallop appetizer was also very good, but the Ostrich was absolutely delicious.
On top of the food, I had the best Zinfindel and the service was top notch
