  • "Eddie Merlot's has it all, the ambiance, amazing service, & divine food. They focus on the details and make your overall experience outstanding. Perfectly cooked steak and seafood. The carrot cake is out of this world."

  • "I was very impressed with the decor (extremely comfortable chairs), a very refreshing change from the usual dark steak houses. iPads on the table provide the drink menu...so cool. Cindy, our waitress, could not have been more attentive. Everything from the 'smoking' shrimp cocktail to the gourmet red velvet cupcakes and milk was perfection. Loved, loved, loved the short-rib meatloaf. I have already raved to all my family and friends - will definitely return for another awesome dining experience. Eddie Merlots is the best in the burgh!"

  • "I had the caprese salad with mozzarella cheese, oil and tomatoes. This is the peak season for tomatoes and they were definitely unsavory. Would have expected better from this high-end restaurant. Otherwise the food was very good."

  • "Definitely a "special occasion" kind of place, but we enjoyed special features that were good values for the price. Service was exceptional from the minute we walked in the door. Will return here soon."

  • "My coworker and I took our two interviewees to lunch at Eddie Merlots, and it was a wonderful choice. The service was exceptional, and the food was good. I was disappointed by the lobster bisque, but apparently their french onion soup is great. I highly recommend their desserts! They are amazing and huge! I got the carrot cake while the others in my party got the chocolate peanut butter dessert as well as the crème brulee. From what I tried, they were all delicious."

  • "I love this place. I've had dinner and lunch here and what a great place. Burger for lunch was amazing... my favorite was Ruth's Chris, now not so sure. Dinner the other night was outstanding. Service was spot on and the food was great. Apps were also very very good. We had about one of everything (big group) and it was all just amazing. May be my new favorite dinner location downtown."

  • "The restaurant is very beautiful. I've only been there during the week when the patio is not open. The service is very nice. I have ordered from the Chef's Creations each time I've been there. What a deal! $30 for a choice of about six entrees, plus a huge and delicious Caesar salad. I'm sure there super duper steaks are awesome, but I would not attempt a $50 chunk of meat. It is a nice setting for special occasions, or any occasion at all. I have taken some well-traveled business guests from Dallas to Eddie's, and they ask to go back when they return to the 'burgh."

We had 2 excellent waitresses who were helpful and knowledgeable about the food . Food selection was extensive and my wife had a grouper that was perfectly prepared. The filets were cooked to perfection and very tender. Wine selection is very good. Special occasion restaurant. Doesn't feel stuffy or snobbish. Nice décor. We'll return."

Our waiter David among the best that I've ever had!!! Both Friendly & efficient. We had a to die for chocolate brown vanilla bean ice cream cognac dessert.

  • "My employer is a tenant in Gateway Four in downtown Pittsburgh, so Eddie Merlot's has become a go-to place for lunch, especially if we're celebrating something or welcoming a new employee. Overall, we've had good experiences at this restaurant, which just opened this spring. Food is consistently good. Nice menu selection for lunch including beef, seafood, flatbreads, salads, soups and sandwiches. Generous portions and nice presentation. Service has also been good. Knowledgeable and friendly servers. Service is a little slower at lunch with a big party, which is something we anticipated given that the space fills up during lunch. Pretty noisy in the restaurant, driven by the acoustics. However, the noise level isn't intolerable."

  • "Discovered Eddie Merlot's while wondering around the city on Saturday morning. Peeked in the window and looked at the posted menu since they were closed. Decided to go online and make a reservation for dinner that night prior to seeing Bill Maher at Heinz Hall. My partner & I decided upon the Napa Valley Summer Grill dinner for two with a bottle of wine. To sum it up.....great restaurant, awesome food & service......will be a regular!"

  • "Four of us had the pleasure of dining at Pittsburgh's best new steak house! The food was excellent....best steaks in town. I had the tuna and it was amazing. Wine list was extensive. Complimentary dessert was delivered in honor of the birthday. Love the decor. It is so fresh and bright. Server could have been a little more friendly."

  • "I took my parents to Eddie Merlot's for their 54th Wedding Anniversary. When we walked in, the bar was BUSY and as soon as we checked in, we were seated at our table for five. Our server was good...especially in the beginning. Our reservation was for 5:45pm but there was a Pirate Game and we didn't arrive until 6:05. No problem. The bread was to DIE for. And I split a shrimp cocktail with my daughter as did my mom and other daughter. The cocktail sauce was spicy and yummy. And the shrimp were huge and came out 'smokin'...the presentation unforgettable! I ordered a 7 oz filet. It was excellent! We ordered three sides with dinner. The truffle fries, YUM...the asparagus, perfect...and mashed potatoes, really good. We all loved it."

  • "The Dinner was great. We really liked the food. The waitress was very busy, however, and we did wait for awhile after we finished eating the main course. She was nice and fairly efficient. We asked a couple of times for the air conditioning to be adjusted. It was freezing the whole time."

  • "I know this is a steak house but as my husband loves beef, I'm a vegetarian. I asked server about any vegetarian dishes and was told they could do a veggie dish. What arrived was 3 side dishes. I've had veg dishes made up in quite a few restaurants but the chef always prepared a little something different. We eat a lot downtown but don't think we'll be returning here. Much better spots to choose from."

  • "Very impressive restaurant. Beautifully decorated to provide the ambiance you would expect from a high-end restaurant. Food was wonderful and portions generous. Service was attentive, but not over done. My wife and I had the Châteaubriand for two. Done just right and very tasty. The Caesar salad was the best I have tasted and the portion was very generous. The S'mores dessert was unique and more than satisfied my sweet tooth. I would reserve this place for a special occasion dinner, given the price. Looking forward to visiting for lunch. A wonderful addition to the city's dinning scene"
