Eddie Merlot's - Indianapolis
Mother's Day BrunchThis the second year we have taken my Mom to Eddie Merlot's for Mother's Day brunch. The food is always excellent and the staff is great. The complimentary valet guys were great and very helpful with taking the wheelchair out of the trunk and helping us into the restaurant. We had a wonderful time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwill come back....but.....Been there twice food was excellant except this past time they ocer cooked my steak..the waiter was informative and the manager was friendly...5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was an excellent diningIt was an excellent dining experience.

We were seated promptly and didn't have to wait for anything especially service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We highly recommend it.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic DinnerWe always find Eddie Merlot's an excellent place for dinner. The food and service are always reliable. Our only complaint for this visit was the time it took to complete our service. There were several meetings underway and our server explained this delayed our service. Total rely was nearly an hour.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceAwesome food. Greet waiter. Food was a bit slow to come out but when it did, wow was it good!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitressOur waitress was great, not too friendly (like sitting down and talking) just right, and she was very attentive to everything.
The only issue, was when we ordered a second drink, it was a little tardy arriving, she blamed it on the bartender, that he/she was stacked up ? Maybe you need a 2nd/3rd bartender ?5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive service, great menu!We had a memorable experience at Eddie Merlot's. Considering that we eat out often, that's pretty rare. Our requests communicated through Open Table were completely and discreetly handled. Our waiter was very attentive and professional. He made excellent recommendations when it became difficult to make choices from a menu that had many attractive options. The food was excellent. One reason I chose Eddie Merlot's was because of their children's menu; in fact I cancelled another reservation after comparing on-line. I don't really like the decor -- it's a little too garish for me, but the layout is good and tables are appropriately distanced. It looks like they have a nice small plates menu, too.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNight outGreat food! Good service! Don't like seeing people in jeans in a restaurant like that. Perhaps dress casual, call me old fashioned.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat eat and atmosphereAlthough the food is pricey and most everything is alacarte, the taste of the food was excellent! This is definitely an awesome place to eat...5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for steaks!Eddies is a great place for delicious filets and creamy garlic mashed potatoes! The servers are very friendly and professional without being in your face. Best steak in town....and the bread is delicious! For desert my wife and I enjoy the Red Velvet cupcakes they are the best in town!!! You will not be disappointed.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMKim is a great wait person....wineKim is a great wait person....wine list is great, just a bit overpriced....great restaurant4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks, but the specialGreat steaks, but the special entrees really shine. Sides are large enough to share 1 between two people. Great chopped salad. It's a little pricy, but not terrible. About 120 for a bottle of wine, salad, two entrees, and two sides. It is much more modern than other steak houses in the area, and a cool feel. Request a side booth, they are cozy!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAdmin Professional DAyThe service was slow for it to be lunch time.

Friendly staff, great service and fabulous steaks.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated a 60th birthdayWe celebrated a 60th birthday and had two children with us. Normally I would not suggest small children at a nicer restaurant, but Eddie Merlot's was wonderful. Very willing to have fun with the children by setting the smoke filled shrimp cocktail in front of the 4th grader who was amazed. They also brought a children's crab cake out early for our 14 month old grandchild, who LOVED it and wanted more. Dinner was excellent as always.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there on Easter SundayI was there on Easter Sunday for dinner; Sundays are usually slow, but it was very slow. I ate in the bar, which was empty. The service was excellent and the food as usual was also excellent. The pork chop I had was cooked perfectly and it was very meaty and flavorful. The wine choices were outstanding and since they will cork the wine for take home, it pays to get a bottle. Once again a great eating experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMJanet, our server, was excellent.Janet, our server, was excellent. She made the dining experience an excellent one. The Manager Kevin took care of concern we had about the food.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good as always. DiFood was very good as always.
Disappointed in service being a little slow on drinks, bread, etc.
However the server picked it up midway through so I beleive they may have just been overly busy.
I always enjoy this place and always highly recommend it.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMJorge was great. It was busyJorge was great. It was busy and could have used more clean up help.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Anniversaries.Very nice anniversary dinner at Eddie Merlot's. Our steaks were cooked perfectly.

I did however mention we were celebrating a birthday when making our reservations on line. That note did not make it to the restaurant . I had to tell them once we were seated and at the end of dinner. I was a little disappointed, but for the most part it was a nice time.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for Special OccasionsTried Eddie Merlot's for first time and ordered herb-roasted chicken....it was good but not what I would call outstanding. Had lobster bisque soap which was excellent, though. Topped off with signature red velvet cupcake which was worth every calorie! Pricey but would definitely go back for a special occasion.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster special was awesome!Lobster special was awesome! Sat in back room which was much quieter than main dining room. Beginning of meal the service was great but as the meal progressed and it got busy the service was extremely slow. The staff wasn't working well as a team.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took advantage of the LobsterWe took advantage of the Lobster Fest all you can eat deal, and it was superb! Service was stellar and the ambiance and seating was impressive. We got right in when we arrived and there was not much that could have improved the evening! Well done!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThumbs up.Best service ever. Pricey, but worth it. Loved the coffee with my gigantic red velvet cupcake. My husband's carrot cake piece was
insanely hugh. I'll be back.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy dining here.Always enjoy dining here. Service can be a little slow at times. Martini's are much better when ordered at the bar vs in the dining room. We dine here 3-4 times a month & love it.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat First VisitFirst time at EM's. Food was great! Waiter was super! Everyone was very nice and accommodating to our 2 year old which does not always happen at a nicer restaurant. We will return.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy date and I very much enjoyedMy date and I very much enjoyed Eddie Merlot's. Great food; romantic ambience. Only downsides...looking out at a parking lot...and the rack of lamb. Three chops for $45? It was very good - although not exactly as rare as I would've liked. The upsides - my date loved his filet mignon and his drink - disaronno with cranberry juice (made just right, he said), the fireplace, the low-slung comfortable chairs, the wine list. Oh, and the spinach salad was to die for - I'd go back just for that.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurant withExcellent restaurant with many options. The trout almondine was fabulous. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. A great place to go for a nice night out.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fine evening of upscaleAnother fine evening of upscale dining. Friendly staff and tasty food. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly, but I found the seasoning a bit heavy handed for such a delicate dish. The waldorf romaines salad was very good.1/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWow Meal!Excellent surf and turf special for New Year's Eve.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AMBest prepared steak in town.Best prepared steak in town.
