    We waited over 45 minutes for 1 strip steak and 1 filet and our sides. The strip steak tasted as if it was wrapped in plastic and microwaved... we couldn't even eat it was definitely not a prime piece of meat. Neither steaks were hot or even near warm. Two different people came over between 20 minutes and said 'your food is almost here', 'it should be here in two minutes', 'they didn't bring your food yet?!' And on top of all that, it was probably 50 degrees in the room we were in. We will not ever visit this restaurant again.

    Excellent food. Looking forward to going again, soon. If you haven't had their chateaubriand, it's a must! Pair it with fresh broccoli (cooked perfectly) and their sweet potato casserole- delicious!

    This was our first time dinning at Eddie Merlots. However, it will probably be our last. We were seated at a table right by the kitchen which was very noisy and had a high volume of traffic. The wrong wine was brought to be to start of the evening, asked for lemons by 3 people finally 4th time got them. We ordered 2 sides and one main course that after we ordered were told they were not available. For the amount of money we spent for 4 people over $500, could of had a better dinning experience elsewhere.

    We have had many dinners at Eddie Merlot. We even joined their dining club. We have always been seated in the main dining room. This time we walked through the bar to the very back room. The atmosphere in the back could be anywhere. We did not feel that we were eating at Eddie Merlot's. We mentioned this to the manager and he explained they fill this room first and the main dining room after. We should request the main dining room next time.

    What made our dining experience outstanding above all I would have to was our waiter Marcus! He was so friendly and fun we were able to joke back and forth with him! The food was amazing!! I recommend the bacon warped BBQ shrimp for appetizer...they give you 4 HUGE shrimp. And the Seabass was amazing! Can't wait to come back!

    I went to Eddie's 2 nights in a row. First night with my husband and 3 year old daughter. The restaurant was very kid friendly. The pork chop and key lime pie were outstanding as was my daughter's mac and cheese. The second night, I celebrated my girlfriend's birthday in the lounge area with live music. We were 6 ladies, and had burgers and cocktails. Everyone in our party was delighted.

    We went as a group of 10 for my brothers bday party. The ambience is nice but we had a terrible experience with the waiter. Let's just say he made a ethnic remark/stereotype and carried on in complaining that WE paid by CC instead of cash which would delay him getting his tips. Just an awful experience. On top of that, food is way over priced for the quality, especially the steaks. Manager listen to our concern and just apologized...did not really offer any remorse off the bill, not that it would of made up for it. Even if it was free, wouldn't go back

    My wife and I have eaten at many high end steak houses in and around the metropolitan Detroit area and I have to say Eddie Merlot's didn't live up to my expectations and it seemed more of a cruise ship atmosphere. The service we received from Marcus was outstanding. He really made our dinner enjoyable. We started off with the bbq shrimp & filet potstickers which were both delicious. The chopped salad & lobster bisque soup were tasty and for the main course we shared the tomahawk ribeye. It was prepared just right but not as flavorful as I would have expected. The sides of tempura beans were good and the Eddie's potatoes were very bland. We're in no hurry to return but may try it again at some point in the future.

    Our meals were perfection -- from the bisque, to the salad, to the filets (mouthwatering!), to the sweet potato casserole (scrumptious), to the hash brown pie. Eddie Merlot's Merlot was excellent! Cheesecake was yummy. The bread had great texture and flavor. Our server was perfection. It was our first visit and he was an expert in his descriptions and recommendations. He was friendly and professional, and we enjoyed the interaction. Absolutely a wonderful dining experience!

    If you want one of the most expensive evenings out, then go to Eddie Merlot's. We've eaten there in the past and for what we get, the service is ok (not very tentative). Ambience is different/unusual/unique. People are friendly. For the price, we can get so much more at other restaurants in Rochester like Kruse and Muer or Rochester Chop House. Perhaps we're paying for eating in Birmingham.

    We visited Eddie Merlot's with several of my husband's frat brothers from out of town. They were all very impressed. Beautiful restaurant. Though it was very busy, the noise level was perfect for conversation. The food was wonderful. 3 of us had the tenderloins done 3 ways and all were perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was exceptional as well--Eddie (our server)--Great Job! Consensus was that Eddie Merlot's is one of the best restaurants around. We joined the dining club!

    Was expecting it to be just another steak house, but it turned out to be nicer. The food selections were more varied, the prices were pretty good and the decor was a little more modern. Our server was very friendly and helpful, although I felt she was around a little too much (better than not enough tho). Food quality was very good.

    Our family of four adults celebrated my husband's birthday here on a Wednesday evening. We sat out on the patio so we could enjoy the beautiful weather. This was not our first visit and we have always have had excellent service. Though our servers were very pleasant, it seemed to take aong time to bring drinks,deliver good, etc. However, that aside (and we were not in a hurry), the food was wonderful and we had an overall 5 star experience!

    Second time to the restaurant with two others that are "members" not an especially busy night , but we were rushed by our waiter. We sat down and were greeted by our waiter, he again approached and we had yet to open our menus. He stated take your time, throughout the night, if I put down a spoon he asked if he could take my half bowl of soup. The same with the bread, my entree, you get the picture. Food was good but the constant hovering of this waiter dampened the evening.

    Absolutely amazing food - the filet with peppercorn sauce and the bourbon ribeye were melting in our mouths. The chopped salad was flavorful and the cheese plate for an appetizer the perfect starter. Our server was a highlight of the dinner. He handpicked the appetizer cheese and meat based on our tastes. He made our anniversary dinner memorable. First time we have eaten at this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised how much we loved it. The only downside is they knew it was our anniversary, yet they seated us in the back corner not in the main dining area - not very quaint, cozy or romantic. Not sure why, but we did not complain.

    We were seated promptly, at the table we requested. Water glasses filled quickly. Hot bread and olive oil brought to table. My caesar salad was good, and brought with light dressing and anchovies. My filet was slightly overcooked, and not as good as the one I made at home last night (mine was Prime beef, theirs was not. My husbands fish dish was good, and the other woman liked her sea bass.The other man ordered salmon well done. It came medium,he sent it back to be more well cooked. They brought it back to him, still not cooked well.They did finally take it of the bill.The waiter was okay, not anything special. Shared one dessert, ,we ate it so it must have been okay.There are other steakhouses in the area I like better. Won't return.
