Eddie Merlot's - Columbus
Mother's Day BuffetEddie's Mother's Day buffet is always a great value. The food is outstanding and Manager Vittorio Borgia is the ultimate host as he keeps the dishes coming and greets every guest. We've done the Mother's Day buffet for several years and plan to do it again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience, greatAwesome experience, great atmosphere. Food was great. Waitress was a little busy and not able to attend to our table very quickly...but nothing major.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerAlways love coming here for dinner. The great food and service is always top notch. Can't beat the great steaks and seafood either.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulour server, Keri took such pride in her work that it made a delicious meal a fantastic dining experience5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for steaksVery good food but also very expensive. The wine list left a lot to be desired given how fancy the place is - very shallow on the European selections. A steaklace should have a better selection of big French reds.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodWe loved eating at Eddie Merlot's. Food is outstanding and ambience is outstanding. Only issue is waiting for the bill and paying taking longer than it should. Otherwise we love going there.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak!I took my 13 year old son there for some male bonding time and he loved the steak! we dont eat a lot of red meat as a family but when we do we do steak. the only thing was the amount of salt they rub in. a slight bit too much that left us very thirsty. the Truffle fries were excellent. I thought I would like the Eddies Potatoes more then I did. the creme brulee is as good as in Paris.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat timeWe have been to Eddie Merlots multiple times am have always had a great meal/experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur regular placeEddie's has become our regular place for special occasion dining. The service is top notch as is the food. The manager recognizes everyone and remembers their name. Food, what is there to say? The food here is always on the A+ list. I can't think of a place I would rather go for that special meal.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatMy wife and I dine here at least once per month and the food, service and drinks are always GREAT.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy meal was excellent. However,My meal was excellent. However, 2 of my fellow diners ordered the meatloaf. Ugh! Truly bad. The texture was that of dog food. The waitress, Monica, immediately offered to replace them. They ordered the porkchops. Excellent! Cooked absolutely perfect.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMichael was wonderful andMichael was wonderful and did an awesome job of taking care of our group.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceEddie's lived up to its reviews. The food was great, romantic environment, and good background music. I would definately go back.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was really good.Everything was really good. The round table with the low chairs were not as comfortable as they could've been. I know 2 other couples sat down and were reseated while we were there. The chairs are a little low for a lot of people. The bourbon ribeye was very good burifle a Prime cut of meat it had a lot of fat.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMstill love Eddie Merlot's!We love Eddie Merlot's. This visit had it's problems, but their management is ALWAYS classy. This is the first time we have been seated in the side area closer to the bar. The chairs are comfortable for a bar setting but maybe I'm just too short for them to dine from. They lost our order and the waiter was no where to be found for long periods of time. We waited a really long time and finally had to go find a manager. He brought the food out and admitted they just lost the order, no excuses, and gave us dinner on the house. Food as always was exceptional and almost worth the wait. Management is the best - they are outgoing and engaging. Every restaurant has a miss now and then. How it's handled makes all the difference! Thanks!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMvisited on 4/19/13 for dinner.visited on 4/19/13 for dinner. made reservations prior on open table. seated immediately upon arrival in a corner booth that overlooked the entire dining room, great location. server was excellent through out meal, paced meal perfectly. We ordered the seafood sampler appetizer and it was fabulous! Sampling of lobster tail, oysters, tuna and shrimp on a bed of dry ice with multiple sauces. Great presentation! Delicious. Server was very helpful pertaining to salad selection, we split one salad which was brought in individual bowls. Followed that with the Steak Diane, flamed at tableside. Delicious. Only minor complaint: as I ate my filets I discovered they had been cooked more toward rare instead of the ordered medium rare.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were impressed with theWe were impressed with the friendly staff.

The reason(s) we keep going back is the quality of food and the staff. Everything we have ordered has been fabulous and if it wasn't they would make sure it was. We tell everyone we know that if your looking for a great steak/seafood dinner...Eddie's is the place to go3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always & that'sExcellent as always & that's what keeps us coming back! Service, drinks, food, ambiance all outstanding! Quality cocktails, the best oysters on the half shell, & the fresh baked bread that has a crunchy crusty outside & a warm soft texture inside with whipped butter is fabulous!!! We had the all you can eat lobster that was cooked to perfection! The lobster special came with buttery red skinned potatoes & an incredable cascar salad. We ended the dinner with coffee & choclate sea salt cake! The cake was delicous however I must be honest I miss the triple layer chocolate cake with choclate frosting! I would always take a piece home but they no longer serve this irresistable dessert. Look forward to warm weather & dining outside at Eddie's!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMbest birthday meal everhad 11 people for a birthday dinner. room outstanding! Service impeccable!( Michael)
Food- every plate hot, fresh, eye appealing. every person received the entrees at exact same time, no " auctioning off" of what plate went where.
A+ for entire staff.

The lobster special was terrific. The price of the shrimp appetizer is a bit out of line--$16 for 4 smallish shrimp. I expected at least 6, and expected Jumbo size.
