    Always have a good experience at Eddie Merlot. However this time it was a little busy and they have a couple new chefs so the food was as amazing as always. Still very good though and the steaks are top of the line, the mushrooms are excellent, and like the fire shrimp. Excellent for a romantic date or special occasion. Service is always excellent and the manager always comes and makes sure everything was good.

    We eat here often, but our last dinner was a bit off. The burger was fine, but the lobster roll was bland and overpriced. However, we tried the lyonnaise potatoes & they were excellent....crispy on the outside, tender on the inside & not greasy.

    From the moment we walked in I was impressed. The decor is beautiful. The service was excellent. The food came out hot and extremely well presented but most importantly the flavor was out of this world. Overall this was the most complete and amazing dining experience I have had in Metro Detroit in a long time.

    The decor was beautiful and very comfortable atmosphere. The noise level was low and we could enjoy our conversation. We loved the Bison Rib-eye steak with the zip sauce. The sea bass was excellent. Definitely try the shrimp cocktail. The service was excellent.

    I had dinner with a friend on a Saturday night. The service was great. The staff was exceptionally trained. It is a busy restaurant with a variety of customers (no particular age group). I had the steak (so did my friend), both were OK. Nothing too special about them. We also had the sweet potatoe side, as well as asparagus. they were recommended by the staff. Neither were mouth-watering. The wine list was good, but I would not return for dinner again.

    Eddie Merlot's was a wonderful dining experience. We ate there after seeing Motown at the Fisher. Although a bit pricey, the food was well prepared both for the palate and the presentation. Wine was just appropriate and the carrot cake was such a larger portion, we're still munching on it. I'd highly recommend the restaurant, especially for a special occasion.

    Nice looking place. Slow paced service (which is fine if your intent is to have a 2 hour dinner). Food was very average at best and EXTREMELY over priced. I pad $35 for 5 scallops and another $9 for asparagus. It was ok, but not worth $44.

    Onion soup cold. Caesar salad excellent- forgot to bring one them. Chicken bland and tasteless-told my husband not to order chicken at a steak house! Steaks were tough, one was under-cooked. I guess they have forgotten the secret to a successful steak house is SHARP knives! We ordered a cheeseburger, specifically asked for french fries for my 4 year old off the kid's menu. They brought it with mashed potatoes, "because it comes with it" was their excuse. We had to ask again for french fries. The cheeseburger and fries were DELICIOUS by the way. Mashed potatoes not so much. The atmosphere beautiful, presentation flawless, nice live guitar music, comfortable chairs, food & service poor, expensive. A place to impress not eat.

    It is a place to be "seen" in the area. Some of the Tiger's management team was there. The food was good but everything was way over priced. If the food was excellent, ala Tribute, I can see paying the price. They may loose clients now that 220 Merrill is back open. That said, the service was outstanding. Her name was Merry.

    An outstanding restaurant in the Birmingham-Bloomfield area. Not inexpensive but food portions are generous and the food is always perfectly prepared. Consistently best steaks in the area. Extensive wine list but rather limited in offerings below the $50-75 per bottle range. An expensive but excellent place to dine for special occasions or entertaining.

    Service was not up to par. Slower service than usual This is at least my 10th visit and I only remember 1 or 2 other times like this. Drink had to be ordered again because it was never brought to me. Salad was not served as ordered so I had to wait until they brought another. Steak was a little bland and needed to becomes more and we needed to wait for that. Service was not acceptable.

    We went on a Sunday evening to celebrate our anniversary. There was no wait, which was nice since the kids were at their aunt & uncle's house and it was a school night. We got there at about 6 and were done at about 8, they don't rush you and let you enjoy each course. It was certainly not somewhere we would be able to visit often, dinner for 2 was quite expensive, but it was a nice way to celebrate 14 years together.

    If you like paying over $400 for 6 people with no liquor or appetizers then enjoy yourself. The waitstaff kept asking for our orders when we weren't ready, food was heavy with butter and or oil, hair in the hash browns not so good and not dealt with properly by the management. The setting is beautiful inside and valet excellent. Since I had changed the reservation to this place, I had read the reviews and thought it would be fabulous. In less than an hour, the waitstaff had broken wine glasses at 2 tables. Hmmm. Needless to say none of the 6 of us will be returning anytime soon. One note: if you like desserts I would give them 5 stars, our carrot cake was absolutely amazing.
