  • "One of the best steaks I ever had! Plenty of menu options for big appetites and small appetites. Their wine list is extensive and they offer many great wines by the glass. More than any restaurant I have dined at. The staff is extremely friendly and made our 1st dining experience at Eddie Merlots quite enjoyable! Will go again in the near future!"

  • "Yes, I lived in Naperville and ate out often. So glad when I return to this town now that this has become my new favorite place to dine....really exceptional food and wine. Service top notch too. I am thrilled I found it"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Food was good however overpriced. Service was excellent, but I would have expected nothing less given that it was at less than 25% occupancy."

  • "Everything wonderful starting with the ambience, the food and last but not least the service makes this place special."

  • "The food was wonderful & just the way I wanted it. Service was good also. My waiter seemed to have a attitude with my 20% tip. It made me feel bad, I feel 20% is a good tip."

  • "Eddie Merlots Warrenville location is a nice place for a special occasion. A bit pricey so bring your big credit card. It's an adult fine dining place with good food, great service and pleasant atmosphere. Dress is classy casual and I'd make a reservation to be sure. Share an appetizer and your side dish as portions are a meal in themselves. Medium cooked meats are closer to med-rare at best. Try a dessert and coffee, you won't be disappointed."

  • "Friendly reception by all you meet on the staff. Staff does a great job of educating you about all their offerings. Our server David was great but he did become scarce later in our seating. We arrived at 630 and finished at 930 and were never rushed. French Onion soup is as good as everyone says. I had the smaller New York strip and it was cooked as ordered but was not all that special tasting even with the peppercorn sauce. Two of our group of four tried the wine flight of 4 reds. Only one of the selection was notable but the experience was interesting. The flaming preparation of the brownie is something to see and eat and was a great finish to our meal."

  • "Asian shrimp app, filet and sea bass excellent. Don't recommend Eddie's Potatoes. Server was phenomenal. Service a little slow."

  • "Had a wonderful meal. The service was great from checking in to wait staff to manager checking our experience at the table . We chose to sit in the bar area which was a little louder than we expected."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Eddie Merlot's is a very special location for fabulous food and impeccable service. Expect to pay significantly, but for a special occasion it is well worth it!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "This is a great looking restaurant and the service is fine, but the quality of the steaks fall short. There are several levels of steak houses and EM has high end prices. The atmosphere is great, but at the end of the day, I go for the quality of the steaks. This quality is probably 20% overpriced and everyone at our table agreed."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Great everything!! It was our first time there and we have absolutely no complaints!! They even brought out a dessert for my birthday with a card signed by all, it was wonderful. We would definitely go back there again:)"

    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "This is my second visit and I was very disappointed with the food when comparing it to my first visit. First time everything was great. This time my steak was dry. For the price I paid, I could have gotten this steak at any restaurant for a lot less. I selected Eddie Merlot's because it was a special occasion and I wanted a special meal. Also, I ordered a baked potato side thinking that it would be large enough to share, but it was just an average size potato, and again for the price, the cost was not justified. My first visit was great; because of this visit, I'm not sure that I would come back and take a chance on another expensive meal."

  • "Ate lunch with a customer and won't go back. Refills were hard to come by and our table was wet from a storm the night before. When we told the waiter he pretty much rolled his eyes. Food was good but portions tiny and overpriced. Had to beg for drink refills."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Sea bass was very tender and well seasoned and was served with flavorful green beans cooked perfectly. Tuna contained veins of gristle and was rather bland in flavor. Truffle fries were crisp, hot, and flavorful. Peanut butter cup dessert was smooth, rich, and more than enough for the two of us. Service was good. Ambience was good. However, for the half the money one can find better food and a more scenic setting in this area."

  • "Fantastic food! Restaurant is a bit hidden but I'm glad I found it. I have guests for frequent business dinners and I'll continue to introduce Eddie Merlot's to anyone who enjoys a good steak dinner. Ranks in good company with Naperville's Sullivans and Mortons. The private room and furniture are very comfortable enabling easy conversation across from the dinner table."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "You will not be disappointed. Excellent and attentive waiters. There is a wide assortment of gourmet food. The Steak Diane was delicious. Also their Waldorf Salad is a light take vs. mom's with the mayonnaise, a nice treat."

  • "Went to celebrate my husband's birthday, From the start the service was slow. Received our menus and waited 15 minutes for our server to come to the table. Ordered wine and waited 20 minutes for it to be brought out. Two ordered the short rib pasta dish & the meat was overcooked/tough. Server never did ask about our meal. My 18 year old son has autism and I explained to the server he has a very limited number of foods that he likes. I asked her to make him a grilled cheese. She responded the kitchen had no bread other than marble rye. The server offered no suggestions we just had to keep asking. We settled on something from the children's menu and my son was happy with the choice. 5 min later white bread was put on our table."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Overall outstanding food and service. I had the bone in filet which was cooked perfectly. The dessert of Reese's Peanut Butter cake was delicious! The only area that lacked was the lack of patrons. Lots of empty tables but it was a Wednesday night. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We visit Eddie's about once a month & I must say this was by far the best food we have had. . . The cold appetizer was awesome. We are not big oyster fans, but these were terrific, plump & tender. For an entrée we had the Short Rib Stroganoff - needed a little more sauce - but super flavorful. We also had the Steak Diane - always great!! For dessert we had the Peanut Butter Mousse - super yummy. This dessert is well worth the price - we had to bring half home. Overall nice dinner, great food, just would have liked a little bit quick service."

  • "Overall,the meal was good; however the Caesars salad was very dry and tasteless. The rest of the meal was good. I would expect better from a rest. Such as yours."

  • "Eddie Merlots is an excellent spot for steak and seafood. They have an attentive staff and top quality food. This has become my favorite restaurant."

  • "From the moment we walked in we knew it was special. My wife and I enjoyed drinks at the bar prior to dinner that were blended to perfection. Dinner was incredible. Our server Ted at the Warrenville location greeted us by name and made dinner recommendations that were out of this world. Ted was also extremely knowledgable on the wine list and made our dinner one to remember. Dessert was a true treat for the eyes as well as the stomach."

  • "Place is very nice, I was with my super awesome girlfriend and we were laughing and kissing all during dinner, so mood was good! YET the service was subpar for the prices they charge. Yet worse I had a bone in filet mignon and thats always been a rare treat and for some reason it was just too well done and dry, I didnt like it and I didnt know that was possible, its a filet mignon! Creme Brulee was good, as was the wine sampler. Yet I expect more from a high priced steak house and just didnt have a good experience. The menu does look good overall and there are other items that looked really good, yet if you dont like the service, then you feel like you might get same subpar service again. Can not recommend."

  • "It's unfortunate that my recent experience at Eddie Merlot's was not favorable. I had a previous visit over a year ago that was very good. This time, it took over an hour to get our entree's and the restaurant was not busy at all. I felt the wait staff avoided our table during this wait time. However, I must say that the on duty manager handled the situation well when brought to his attention. I might try it again for the food. "
