Diner Reviews
  • "Just like the old days when service was king and the food was great. Congrats. Personlly, we only like to eat in the main dining room but I noticed many moved to the side rooms due to the noise. Wait staff has always been professionally trained. Very few restaurants know how to deliver proper table service, this one does. We were dissappoint at the dress code of 30% of the customers. Saturday night dinner and people showed up in jeans and untucked shirts, and bring your kids in tee shirts. "

  • "Every time we drive by Eddie Merlot's we just want to turn in, because we know a fine meal awaits inside. Every dish is flavorful and done to perfection, service is friendly and timely, and the wine list has a wide variety. The specials have just the right portion sizes and are great values. Dessert and coffee are the crowning glory to a fine dining experience, and at Eddie Merlot's we are never disappointed."

  • "Correct the spelling of Brunch....you have Bunch. We have been in the bar area and the restaurant and both are fabulous. I especially like the specials that you offer as having an 18 oz. steak for $56.00 isn't something that I would order. Everything was very nice."

  • "We were there for a small birthday celebration dinner. We were six adults. Waiter was wait staff were very attentive. The food was DELICIOUS! We recommend this restaurant for those who love quality and want to take time to enjoy their meal."

  • "Great menu variety. I was celebrating a birthday and it was a 1st visit. I ordered the sea bass. It was excellent! Quite pricey, but what I expected to pay. The spinach salad with bacon dressing and strawberries is highly recommended as well. My husband ordered a bone-in ribeye steak. It was just ok. We both agreed our faithful steakhouse down the street is still untouchable- as they cook their steak with butter. I will not run back to EM for a steak (ironically), but for the menu overall and for highly recommended pork chops I have yet to try there."

  • "It was not our first time dining at Eddie Merlot's and our first experience was outstanding. However, while our experience was very good; our service was extremely slow. The restaurant was not overcrowded or filled to capacity. We had reservations at 8:30 pm and we received our dinner at approx.10:15 pm. In fact, we were the onl table in the dining room when we left. It was a terribly long wait between the appetizers and the meal. Other than the delay, the food was really good. We love the ambiance and meal options, so we will return."

  • "Tried out Eddie Merlot's for the first time, the overall service was beyond terrible. The food was decent, almost worth the money. If nothing if forcing you to eat here save yourself a couple hundred dollars and stay away. Waiter took forever to even acknowledge that we were a table in his section. After he introduced himself he talked very unprofessionally "what's the plan here...are we doing an app or a drink or trying to skip right to dinner." This guy told us many excuses trying to make up for the horrendous way he was treating us. Luckily the food was moderately good."

  • "I'm a regular at Eddie Merlots and never had any issues and food/ service has always been spectacular. Evening started off with a Charcuterie Tray and Martini's in the Lounge headed by Maureen, Carolyn and Lance. If you want a great variety of meat and cheeses try out one of their trays. After a few Martini's we went over to Dining Room where Stephanie was our Server Extraordinaire who was filled with knowledge about "Specials" and the menu in general and also added her favorites. I chose the Lobster Duo and my guest had the 3 course meal with Caesar Salad, Cedar Plank Salmon with a dessert. If you're ever looking for an awesome restaurant give Eddie Merlot's a try."

  • "Of all the major steakhouses in our area (7) this is the best for food and value. The staff is energetic , knowledgeable and personable."

  • "The food was steak house solid. Eddie Merlot's may be a little more casual than the neighboring steak houses. Nice amount of room between tables. The service was good and the wine was priced fairly. We would go back."

  • "Bartender Maureen was very nice. Waiter Marcus did an excellent job. We were served on time and the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the room and the decor...great place to enjoy dinner with friends and family. I will be back."

  • "Great burgers and bar food for the Happy Hour menu! The Bar staff (if you end up sitting at the bar) is terrific!! The entire team was very friendly and helpful the evening we were there."

  • "I have been to plenty of high priced restaurants and am normally o.k. with it, if you get what you pay for. I have to say Eddie Merlot's is way overrated. Nothing special here, you should move on and save your car payment for a better experience."

  • "Caesar salad was bland ; no flavor. Steak was good but side dishes were barely warm. Does not compare with other Restaurants in this price range. Better choices would be Ruth's Chris, Morton s or Capitol Grille."

  • "Although the atmosphere and service of the restaurant are excellent, the food is not. The food lacked the 3 "P"s , which are Presentation, Preparation and Portion. For the price we paid for our entrees, the presentation of the entree was no different than any other chain restaurant. With respect to the preparation, two of our entrees were not cooked as requested, and the taste of the entrees was mediocre. As to portion, it was lacking there as well. One does not mind a smaller portion if the entree was at least outstanding in its presentation and preparation, which was definitely not the case here. If you want to dine here because it's currently the "hot spot", then it's the place for you. Otherwise, save your money."

  • "We eat at Eddie Merlot's a couple times a month. We love to sit in the bar area where there is live entertainment. The cheese plate, carpacio, mac and cheese, and banana's foster are a few of our favorites!"

  • "My husband and I had dinner here on a Friday night. They were offering a Prix menu for $34 and the food for that was wonderful! Starts with a salad, then we had the Cedar Plank Salmon that had fingerling potatoes and sauteed spinach. The Salmon was extremely tender and juicy. The amount of potatoes was very very small but that was fine for us as we don't care for too many carbs with dinner. The meal also gave a choice of dessert which was also very good."

  • "The food, atmosphere, service were all fantastic! Made reservations online thru Open Table, we were able to walk right in, and sit down. Definitely the best filet in the area. It can get expensive, with drinks and sides ala carte, but worth the price."

  • "We were in the private room and we really enjoy everything."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I had read about the restaurant when it first opened and my husband and I read up on it before reserving. The dinner started off well. Waiter introduced himself, asked if we'd been there before. Shrimp appetizer was good. Ceasar salad very good. Things went downhill for me at dinner. Husband ordered steak medium well - steak was black and very well done. He doesn't complain so he ate it anyway. I ordered Salmon. A fourth of the way into it, it was raw. When i flagged the waiter he took one look and said raw before i said anything - happened before? Waited about 10 min. for it to return. by then side dish of potatoes were cold. Dessert was good."

  • "Food expensive and awful. Server agreed food was not prepared correctly. Blamed it on several new line cooks being trained.because they quit all the time. Trout was over cooked and dry - not edible and server apologies dad she knew it was bad. Barely was able to eat half my salad before dinner arrived. Another server brought the food. When original server came by she was startled we had our entrees already delivered and apogised that salad and entree was served to quick. Very unorganized all around. Restaurant was almost empty at 7:30 on a Thursday night and never got busier - only 3-4 people at the bar. No atmosphere. Will not return - nothing positive to say really."

  • "As we were a little apprehensive after reading some reviews... I give this place five stars. The food was phenomenal my husband and I both got the trio of medallions which were perfect. Lobster mac was good! The service was above and beyond. We will definitely be back!"

  • "We got there at 7 ordered at 7:15 our food came at 8:45. We were starving even tho we had salads and one appetizer. Our waiter kept telling us our food would be out soon. By the time our food came we already had our allotment of wine and had to drive so we couldn't have any wine with dinner. 3 out of 4 of us had lobster so I don't know what took so long. I thought my salmon app was very good. My husbands pork chop was dry but he ordered it well done. I would probably sit in bar if we went back."

  • "We recently dined here with another couple. It was early and we indicated when we were seated that our time was limited as we were going to another event that evening. It was about 15 min before we were able to flag someone down to take our order . Service continued from our waiter in this manner throughout the meal. The exception was the bus service which was very good, on par with what I would expect at a restaurant of this level. Food was generally average, although the salmon was excellent. We were all very disappointed."

  • "It was a leisurely dinner. Everyone was pleased with their food selections. The entrees were not as hot as we thought sthey should be, so two persons in the party sent their selections back to be heated up. Our server brought the birthday girl a cupcake with cream cheese frosting that was delicious! It was a memorable evening."

  • "Very disappointed. I order my filet well done. It comes medium rare. Once back, it's always charred to the point I cannot cut it or eat it. I am 8 weeks pregnant and the wait for bread was 40 minutes. The steak was an inch big once it came back (20 min later) friends done eating, mine wasn't meat anymore. It had caught on fire and was served to me. We eat at all the steakhouses regularly. I have had to send my filet back maybe twice and both restaurabts went above and beyond to comp the filet. EM's waits to catch the steak on fire, leaning blsck charred dust all over the plate. The carcinogens could kill people. I could not cut my steak nor would I eat it. Unacceptable to serve that."

  • "After a very poor opening about a year ago, they now have much better service, food and organization. We were pleased to see excellent non-red meat choices. Prix fix dinners and special are especially appealing."
