Eddie Merlot's - Columbus
Great place to impress clients,Great place to impress clients, our server was under the gun of having too many tables at once.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedAs always we had an excellent experience at Eddie's this past weekend for my birthday. Our regular server wasn't available, but Jaime took great care of us. The new manager Matt remembered that I was expecting and inquired as to how the baby and I were doing. I was a little surprised he remembered since we hadn't been in since the announcement in April. A minor mistake with my steak was corrected immediately by the General Manager Vittorio. I had ordered it Oscar style and they'd forgotten. I said "I'm sorry, but I believe I ordered this Oscar style" He responded "Do not apologize! You are family here. I'll Oscar this right up for you and be right back." My steak was wonderful The lobster bisque was excellent as was the calamari.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's good for a special occasion...My girlfriend and I ordered the calimari appetizer, which was very good and served with 3 sauces. We also split a lobster bisque, which also was very good. I ordered a filet with scallops on the side, my girffriend ordered just the filet. To accompany, we ordered lobster mac and cheese and asparagus. The sides were perfect - the mac and cheese was probably the best I've ever had! However, the filets were a bit dissapointing - both were charred too much, whereas the flavor of the meat was masked by the char. Our steaks were both ordered medium rare, and hers was even more charred than mine, and actually less done then mine.. We probably should have sent them back. We will probably go back, but I will request a non-charred steak!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPay for what you get...We had an incredible meal at Eddie's. We shared the calamari and escargot appetizers. The calamari had a tempura batter that was very crunchy it was drained well and served with a trio of sauces (wasabi mayo, spicy mustard and a soy based sauce). The escargot was bourguignon style with a small piece of puff pastry on top- the best I've had outside of France. My husband had two glasses of pinot noir and the prime ribeye bourbon marinated with a baked potato. I had the filet medium topped with truffle butter and truffle fries. My steak was absolute perfection and hands down the best I've had. The outside was seared to perfection with a slight wood-fired taste on the outside but the inside was the consistency of butter. Coffees were great!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Anniversary DinnerWe had dinner at Eddie Merlot's for our tenth wedding anniversary. Everyone -- from the hostess to the waiter to the manager -- wished us a happy anniversary. We were seated immediately (even thought we were 15 minutes early), and our waiter was wonderful. He was very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. As always, the food was outstanding. We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother outstanding meal atAnother outstanding meal at Eddie Merlot's at Polaris. The service was top notch and food was outstanding. I would highly recommend the Wagyu Tomahawk Ribeye. The 28 oz. steak is full of flavor. The steak was cut tableside for my husband and I to share. The warm bacon dressing was a favorite on the wedge salad and I really enjoyed the Romaine "Waldorf " . You also can not go wrong with the Sweet and Spicy Rock Shrimp appetizer. The Creamed Corn was yummy and the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing was a nice birthday surprise. The menu has something for everyone. We have always had excellent service and a wonderful dining experience at Eddie Merlot's.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA truly great seafood/steakhouse!We have enjoyed dinner at this location many times and have never had a bad meal or poor service.

Not stuffy like other top of the line steak houses.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm your favorite guestNo one is better at hospitality than General Manager Vittorio. I'm convinced that every diner in the room felt like a special guest. I know we did. Thanks for the great service, great meal, and warm welcome.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints . . .We love our dining experience at Eddie Merlot's. Their food is great, the service isincredibleand the atmosphere is perfect.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and ServiceThis restaurant combines excellent food like their aged steaks along with great service. The wait staff prepare dishes like steak diane or bananas foster at the table but all the food is excellent. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive. He was helpful with selection of food and was knowledgeable about the menu options. This restaurant is higher priced than many but worth it. I did notice that they also have a couple rooms with for private parties so it would be great for a special occasion. They had some new menu items and the New Orleans Mixed Grill was very good.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMother'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 AMThumbs up!They were off to a great start with the Valet parking.

We always enjoy the food. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for. We already been three times this year.5/10/2013 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 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 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 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 AMGreat Food, Mediocre ServiceWhile the food was once again wonderful, our server, Ana, was not. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, the sides were delicious and plentiful. Even the after dinner coffee was great. My husband's espresso was lukewarm, so he had to ask for another one. Ana, our server, was no where to be found once we were seated and seemed distracted and forgetful throughout the meal. She did help my faux pas when I knocked over a glass of ice water all over the table, my husband, and the floor, so I will give her credit for that. We will definitely dine there again, but I think I'll ask for Eric the next time.4/19/2013 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. Everyone, including the manager, was first rate.
