    MY REGULAR SERVER (COLETTE) WAS ON VACATION. I THOUGHT MY SPECIAL NEEDS WERE ON RECORD SOMEWHERE IN THE FILES & YET THE BLUE CHEESE SAUCE ON MY CHIPS WAS NOT WARM FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE I STARTED ORDERING THEM. ALSO SERVICE WAS A BIT SLOW ALTHOUGH THE RESTAURANT DID NOT SEEM THAT BUSY. MY FIRST DISAPPOINTMENT HERE. NEXT TIME I WILL MAKE SURE COLETTE OR STEVE WILL BE MY SERVER OR I WILL WAIT FOR WHEN THEY CAN BE.

Andras' attention to detail and fine recommendations have always made me feel as if only the best service will ever do. Thank you fro having such professional servers.

    Saturday night was 3rd time here at Eddie Merlots . My chopped salad and grouper were both excellent. The sides: asparagus grilled just right, creamed spinach to die for; broccoli was steamed and had no seasoning on it so very bland; the hash browns which server highly recommended were pasty and tasted like frozen from grocery I could make at home.The filets were excellent though one ordered medium well arrived medium rare so had to be sent back. We have never had outstanding service at this restaurant and this night was worse then usual.We were never served any bread. Server came to table infrequently and timing was odd.Very long delays between wine flights. Desserts are nothing special.

    Enjoyed dinner; very good food but the meal was spoiled by poor service. I felt we were ignored by our waiter= never asked for coffee refill could not get his attention because he was busy with other tables. Clean up service was unacceptable, we waited almost 20 minutes for our dirty dishes to be picked up. A real lack of detail by the wait stall.

    Eddie Merlot could be so much more if they would get their act together. After waiting quite a while for an appitizer to arrive, we waited over an hour for bread and salads to be delivered to our table. My pork chop was so tough it could hardly be cut with a steak knife. And, we had to request flatware for the table. On other occasions, they have been out of listed wines we requested, and fallen short on food and service as well. We would like to see them succeed since it is nice to have an up-scale restaurant in the area, but we have always been disappointed with them.
