Without even requesting, we had a small private room for our dinner for our group of 8. Service was excellent, food was great. I would recommend to work associates for business dinners or for a special occasion if I was going on my own.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM3rd Visit - Continued High PraiseMy wife and I entertained some out of town business associates this past week. Prior to the meal we enjoyed drinks in the bar. Service there was warm and friendly and though the bar was busy we were able to carry on comfortable conversations. Service in the dining area was professional and personable. Food was excellent. Our steaks were prepared just as we requested. Coffee and their signature carrot cake finished the meal. Our guests were most impressed with all aspects of this dining experience. We'll continue to keep this restaurant at the top of our favorites list.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and service.
BitVery good food and service.
Bit pricy, with everything being ala carte. Sides are large and need to be shared w/ table.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFell in, will returnHaving just left the local theater, and not having reservations anywhere, we did a quick OpenTable search and found an opening at Eddie Merlots. Having never been, I thought what a great opportunity to try something new, a little nicer, with just my wife.
Overall, fantastic! Although our server could only be rated as "good", the food and live music overcame this little hiccup.
The shrimp appetizer was outstanding! Great wine list, and a well rounded selection of entrees... I know we will go back again!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to celebrate good news.Went to celebrate good news. And experience completed the news receive on a very high note.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful dining room, deliciousBeautiful dining room, delicious food for a special occasion. Being that it is so expensive it would prohibit dining here on a regular basis.excellent choice for a special occasion .6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and foodI took my wife to Eddie Merlot's for her birthday. The service was great, and the food was excellent. This was our second visit where we tried different dishes, and all of them turned out great. We prefer eating in the bar area where they have very comfy chairs, a fireplace, and more of a cozy feel. However, they do have a lot of tables in there, so it can feel a bit cramped getting to your table. Other than that, our two experiences have been great.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening out.There was only three of us but it was quiet enough to talk and yet busy enough to people watch. The food , as always, was great.
I would recommend this place to almost anyone except those with little ones. Great restaurant....5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Friday OutMy wife and I enjoyed a pre movie dinner. Nice waitstaff And great dinner!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was outstanding.Everything was outstanding. We love the new menu items.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPros:
--Beautiful presentation (shrimp on dry ice, flaming bananas foster))
--Menu items that you don't see in other restaurants
--PRICE -- while the quality was excellent, prices for many items were over the top, even for a restaurant in this category.
--waited almost an hour for our appetizers (at an early seating)
The restaurant was not very busy during the early seating time we requested, yet we had to wait almost an hour for our appetizers,5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first time here and itMy first time here and it was enjoyable, especially due to the very friendly waitstaff. The steaks were delicious as were the lobster Mac and cheese and the sautéed spinach sides. The coconut cake was SO good. Am disappointed that it won't be on the menu anymore.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionsWe have chosen to come to Eddie's for our family special occasions, college graduations and birthdays. The dining experience is memorable and deliciously fabulous. One member is a vegan and the chef always prepares a beautiful vegetable and or fruit meal. We can all celebrate and enjoy our time together at Eddie Merlott's.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor diningFirst time there. Nice to sit outside and if you do you participate in the bar menu as well as the restaurant menu. Great small plates and burgers, sandwiches. Food very good. Will definitely be back.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLincolnshire's BestThis is a wonderful restaurant. Everything was great with a special thanks to our great waiter Joe. Service was right on and all the food was cooked to perfection.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Dining ExperienceVery early Saturday night dinner and wanted a quieter place for conversation and great food for out-of-towners. WOW the décor was unexpected and AWESOME! Really enjoyed the evening!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time diningGreat place, beautiful decor and atmosphere. Outstanding food! Service was exceptional5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie'sWe had a group of 7 and all the food was delicious. Food was served in a timely manner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAl was a wonderful server,Al was a wonderful server, food good, as always and we enjoyed the flaming brownie dessert.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter Than ExpectedFrom it's location, in an obscure strip-mall, I'd assumed there would be a limit to what we could really expect, but I was wrong. My expectations were exceeded in decore, service and the quality of the food served. My date and I had gone out to Morton's for a celebration dinner, and were left dissatisfied with the overall experience. Our recent dinner at Eddie Merlot's was better in every category.
I'm sure we'll be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMKind of pricey, but thereKind of pricey, but there are several less expensive items on their menu. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's the bestWe love Eddie Merlot's. The food is excellent as is the service. We prefer the ambiance of light music in the background coupled with a quiet dining room. You pay a little extra but you get extra with anything on the menu being great and first class service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had 7:15 reservation onWe had 7:15 reservation on a Friday night. While the restaurant was very busy, our reservation was on time. The service was good, but our food took a bit long to arrive. Our dining experience lasted just over 1-1/2 hours. A bit long, fortunately we didn't have after dinner plans.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Everything about this restaurant was Excellent - food, service, and ambience!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and serviceFood was excellent and service was wonderful. The two reasons why I go to a restaurant and keep going back. The sea bass was to die for and very generous portions.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprisedThis was our first time dining here & it was lovely. We will definitely go back soon. Very good & friendly service.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our fifth visit andThis was our fifth visit and we really enjoy the food and service.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantMy wife and I really enjoyed over evening at Eddie Merlot's in Lincolnshire. Everything was perfect. We liked it so much that we already have reservations there in July.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a very good restaurant.This is a very good restaurant. Unfortunately, our server was a bit off this time. We had to ask for things multiple times and he forgot that it was my birthday (even though it was in the reservation and I mentioned it once). Nevertheless, I am sure that we will give it another try, since we enjoyed the food.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie Merlot's!!We had an amazing dinner. This was our first visit and really can't express how enjoyable our experience was. We have made this a must-repeat (a lot) restaurant!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDowntown Steakhouse in LincolnshireExcept for a mediocre french onion soup, our experience at Eddie Merlot's was wonderful. Our party of 4 all enjoyed the appetizers, steak you could cut with a fork, perfectly seared ahi tuna, & amazing dessert. The truffle parmesan fries are a must! The only thing preventing me from giving an overall score of "outstanding" are the prices. The atmosphere is elegant, but the prices make it a birthday & anniversary destination, rather than a random Saturday night place. I'm not sure in Lincolnshire they will survive charging these prices, as I can't imaging filling seats on a weekday when it's difficult to get out of there for less than $70-80 per person. I'll go again though on a special occasion.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything a la carteWhile the food is very good, all the beef items are a la carte and a dinner gets pricey very fast.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!It was our first time at Eddie's and it was a very special occasion - my wife's Birthday! The Wine was exceptional, the Food was Incredible and the service was fast, helpful and friendly!
We will be back often :)5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTop NotchThis is the place to go for an excellent dining experience!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFeels Like VEGAS!Best dinner we've had since moving away from L.V.!!! The decor is very different but in a great way, our service was over the top but never intrusive, and the Tomahawk Ribeye could have been cut with a fork! The coffee presentation is probably the coolest I've ever seen.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's not cheap, but the foodIt's not cheap, but the food is excellent. Chateaubriand was flavorful and came with two sides. Carrot cake dessert was literally big enough for four. Very friendly, informal service. Pleasant setting in a large restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! A must try!WONDERFUL! Amazing food, best steak I have ever had! Hostess team was not only easy on the eyes but extremely helpful and friendly. Our server was great and provided a lot of input and help while we made our food selections. I will be returning for another amazing dinner outing!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!Second time there, and it was excellent again!! This time I tried the Ahi Tuna, it was perfect!!! Besides my husband's steak being cooked just right, the Truffle Fries were to die for. We even went into the bar for a drink afterwards to hear the band. Very cozy, and comfortable. The bartenders didn't let you wait to order like some other places. I highly recommend this place!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great place to dine.What a great place to dine. Treated like kings and queens. Great food too. Can't wait to go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husbands food was all veryMy husbands food was all very good. Button salmon left a lot to be desired. Was suppose to have a BBQ glaze. I never tasted it. And the sides that came with it were meager.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, and extremely friendly staff made our experience here top notch. We will tell all of our friends about Eddie Merlot's!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe setting sun was glaringThe setting sun was glaring in my eyes with no way to block the windows. My husband was only a dark shadow sitting next to me as I was blinded. It was very unsettling. With a dining room that faces west, they should have a way to solve this. The food and service was eexcellent.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is exactly what we wereThis is exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance was amazing with bright colors (not the typical dark and dingy steakhouse decor). The Rock Shrimp for an appetizer was phanomenal and you can eat the bowl served with the calamari in it. Chateaubriand was sliced table side and mixed berries for dessert was flambed table side with at least a three foot flame (nice presentation). Our servers recommendations were outstanding. He made our anniversary enjoyable. So much so we took a picture with him. After dinner we had an after dinner drink in the lounge. The music was so much fun. These three guys really reved up the crowd.We had quite the evening and already made reservations to return on Mother's Day.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is amazing!!! ThisThis place is amazing!!!
