Eddie Merlot's - Fort Wayne
Excellent service and food!Erica provided us with excellent service and the food was delicious!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingFor starters, the service was excellent. Out glasses never went empty. Waitress was great, kind, and hospitable. Food exquisite. Kitchen prepared for us a desert for our anniversary without us asking and was a delightful way to end the meal.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNice TimeAttentive, first class service. Employees really seemed to like their job. Food portions big. Food was very tasty.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceMark was a great waiter, full of helpful information when choosing drink and food and very nice. The red velvet cupcake was definitely a nice touch.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful SteaksEveryone enjoyed their meal. Steaks were cooked perfect and the peppercorn sauce was outstanding. My only issue was the sides. We ordered 5 sides. And 3 of the 5 were barely warm. I wish they came out hot. The service was very good. The table side Bannas Foster was very well prepared. Rather Pricey, but awesome meal. I would certainly go back.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA tasty tailI wanted to order the Grouper, but unfortunately, they were out, so the server suggested the Sea Bass. This was an excellent replacement and extremely tasty. My husband ordered the two lobster tails and so as not to disappoint, the server went to check on the availablility. She reserved the last two for him and she said since they were small, the kitchen would add another to the order. Much to his surprise, when the order came out, there were four tails, which made for quit a feast. The entire meal was excellent!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was exceptional and serviceFood was exceptional and service was fantastic. First time diner. We will be back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time as alwaysThe food was great as was the service. Wish I could go there more often, but can't afford it!! The bar area does have a different menu then the restaurant area. Smaller options. We happened to get a menu and out server let us get a couple things from there! If you can might want to check it out!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been here several timesWe've been here several times and it's always a great experience. This time we went for my wife's birthday. I made reservations through Open Table and requested an intimate booth at 7:00 pm on a Saturday evening. We arrived at 6:30 pm and they had everything prepared already and greeted my wife with a Happy Birthday. The service was excellent and friendly and the food is the best around. Of course my recommendation would be the filet mignon but you have to try the lyonnaise potatoes.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie's ReviewAs expected the food was outstanding with the exception of the lobster bisc. Taste was on but the bisc was served luke warm, soup should be served hot. Total experience was excellent from the time we walked in the door until we walked out. Promptly seated (had reservation), beverage service was fast as well as the the food ordering and turn around time. The 10 oz. fillet (med rare) was out of this world good. Very tender and cooked to perfection. I tried the truffle butter topping this time and I would suggest to any steak lover...very good. My wife and I finished the excellent meal with creme brulee and the signature red velvet cream cheese cupcake and coffee.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSplendid upscale dining experienceWhen I searched for upscale dining in the Fort Wayne area, Eddie Merlot's topped the list, and our experience was top-notch. I read other reviews where service was listed as "slow," but this is exactly what I want: if I'm spending $150 for a meal for two, I don't want our waiter rushing us out the door. Once our cocktail orders were delivered, we had a solid 15-20 minutes to enjoy them with conversation. Appetizers came next, then dinner…all with enough time between to fully enjoy each course. The seafood was done to perfection: trout and scallops, each delectable. The wine list ranged from enjoyable house wine to high-end bottles, all in a lovely environment. Once you get over the shopping-mall location, you're in for a treat!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday MealWe had a wonderful experience at Eddie Merlot. The food was excellent and the server was very knowledgeable and attentive. It was the perfect spot to celebrate my birthday.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!Felicia was our waitress and she really took good care of us! The food was excellent as always!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding. OurService was outstanding. Our waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service!The Mother's Day buffet had a wide variety of choices for eating. The food was presented well and there were plenty of servers to attend to our needs.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA little over pricedEddie Merlot's doesn't normally do buffet type dining, but when they do, it's pretty good. The star of the show was the beef tenderloin which was medium rare and carved to order. Other highlights were the peel & eat shrimp, smoked salmon, and bananas foster. The remainder fair was typical buffet type dishes, done very well, but nothing to write home about. For a similar price Texas de Brazil offers much much more.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA fine dining oasis in Ft. WayneThere's not much good food to be had in the Ft. Wayne area, but Eddie Merlot's is a wonderful exception! The food was wonderful (Chateaubriand for two, delicious steamed broccoli and flavorful garlic mashed potatoes). Everything was cooked to perfection. The beef was incredibly tender, the broccoli was fresh and the mashed potatoes were creamy and full of garlic. The only negative was the chairs, which were quite low, putting my shorter wife farther below the table than she'd like to be and uncomfortable for a taller guy like me.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's not dinner, it's an experienceEverytime we go to Eddie's we are able to have an excellent meal and get away from the normal "restaurant" design.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMnearly perfectMy husband and I enjoyed our meal very much. I would not change a thing except for the fact that our server made an error on our bill and charged the 2 of us for 5 salads instead of 2. We pointed out the error and he corrected it but our bill was very hard to understand which made it difficult to know if it was correct. We paid with gift cards and had a balance left on the card. We had to ask twice to have the card returned to us5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try......I've been here before, but it was a first for my parents. They loved the place. There's lots of options, the food is superb, the Moscato D'asti - I dream about. One of my favorite places to eat and the rooms are wonderful. It's a tiny bit dark overall and when it gets full it can get kind of noisy, but the seating, tables are very comfortable, much beauty to see. And did I mention the food....? You can't go wrong with eating here.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceIt was a Sunday night and the restaurant was not busy. I had never been there before, but was excited to try it out. We were celebrating my brother's engagement. The view was amazing. The service was the best part: never did a glass empty, food was prepared in a timely fashion, waitress came to the table as soon as the hostess sat us down. The wait staff also took a personal interest in what we were celebrating and was excited for my brother and his fiancee. As a surprise at the end, the staff brought out engagement cupcakes, free of charge. The food was amazing also, and I have had some pretty good steaks and cupcakes before. It was expensive, but you know what you're paying when you walk in. Best classy place in Ft. Wayne!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!As usual, Eddie Merlot's is right on. The food was great and the service was excellent. We will be back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMeddie's experienceFood was great. My fiance and I ordered the filet mignon, yes it was pricey but it was amazing. Our waitress was knowledgeable with the wines and helped us find a nice glass of full bodied cab that paired very well with the steak.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen I went into Eddie Merlot's,When I went into Eddie Merlot's, the hostess said it was going to be over an hour wait, I stepped outside and made my reservation on Open Table and I was in in 20 minutes. I didn't like the fact I was lied to.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Great food.Great place. Great food.

The food was superb and the best crab cakes ever.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but very loud and congested!We visited Eddie Merlot's for an Easter Brunch. Although we had a prior reservation, we will waited almost 15 minutes for our table. The restaurant was over-crowded and very loud, which is probably due to the special Easter Brunch for the holiday. While the food was wonderful . . . I won't be returning on a special holiday. I would rather return on a quiet evening when it's not so chaotic.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding without pretension.Eddie's is fabulous. Every item on the menu is the best food I have ever eaten anywhere. The ambience is beautiful. Each room is architecturally perfect creating a perfect place to eat perfectly cooked food in perfectly sized portions. You will love this restaurant!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first visit andIt was our first visit and we were treated very well. The entire staff made us feel special.

Ralph Witt3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOver bookedWhen we arrived with our party of six for our 7:30 reservation, there were quite a few people waiting and it was quite warm. We ended up having to wait for one hour. I went up to the bar at one point to get a drink and couldn't find an open space to give my order and could not get noticed, but finally went down to the waitress station and ordered a drink. After about 40 minutes of waiting my husband complained and the manager came over and offered us drinks and appetizers to compensate for the inconvenience, which was very nice. They ended up giving us all drinks and three appetizers at no charge. Several in our party got the two lobster meal and enjoyed it, but would have preferred to have choices on the sides.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWas a little surprised thatWas a little surprised that a restaurant of Eddie's reputation for excellent service and amazing cuisine would serve such an inferior species of lobster for their promotion. The tail was extremely chewy and somewhat tough. Disappointing! Other than that the visit was outstanding, as usual!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
