Eddie Merlot's - Warrenville
Service was poorTook an hour to get our food and there was probably only 4 other couples in the resteraunt. Service is everything in fine dining.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely lovely!We had a marvelous Mothers Day Brunch ! All of the food was scrumptious and exceeded our expectations. We had been here for dinner before and will certainly return for both dinner and brunch again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWe love Eddie Merlot's the food is always great and the service spectacular!

I highly recommend this restaurant for the quality of all aspects5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSlow service very good foodAlmost half hour to get wine, salad, and bread. Restaurant only about 25% full.
Steak was outstanding. Cooked just right. Asparagus also fantastic. Creamed spinach a bit heavy on the gruyere for our taste. Dessert (flaming berries with ice cream) was excellent.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I enjoyed aMy husband and I enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Eddie Merlot's. Our server, Kelly, was very friendly and accommodating. She make the right suggestions when we needed one and appeared at our table when we needed her. This was a weekday night so I'm not sure if the service would be the same on a busy weekend. The food was delicious. We ordered the Steak Diane for two and Kelly prepared it tableside to perfection. The beef was so tender and delicious that we could cut it with a fork! The prices seemed reasonable compared to other upscale steak restaurants. We'll definitely be back!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak I ever hadEverything was ala carte. The steak was perfectly cut, seasoned, and prepared. While I enjoyed the experience, the cost was a bit high. With a half-priced bottle of wine, the two steaks, a basket of fries and a single dessert, the bill came to over $175.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeI cannot say enough about how great this place is. The food is always amazingly good. The service impeccable. We chose to eat in the lounge for dinner and we were very comfortable. The Martinis were amazing.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated our anniversary!This is a beautiful restaurant! We'd only had wine and appetizers here - both highly recommended!
We each had steaks that were perfectly done as promised: medium with some pink in the center. The sides were wonderful! We had the best creamed spinach ever - very tasty and hot! The chopped salad is a little different, with slightly different ingredients than most chopped salads, but it was SO GOOD! It was represented as being a 'large' salad, but it was average size.
The potato leek soup was very good, but I think some green herbs or chopped green onions on top would have made it a little more visually interesting.
Their 'wines by the glass' bottles are 50% off on Sundays!
I really recommend Eddie Merlot's in Warrenville/Naperville!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak DianeI love Steak Diane & haven't had it because when not prepared table side it misses the great wine & garlic taste. This wasn't close 75% cooked meat not raw as I remember & she made up sauce flamed it, added mushroom's. then it was over done & dry.. It was my 58th birthday we had it for two big disappointment. My wife was just there couple of weeks ago & told me it was good. Also told me about the Steak Diane.. I won't be back there's plenty of good steak places. If I knew the Steak Diane was going to be done that way I would've ordered Filet Minon or Prime Rib. Everything else was great decor service. Too bad they false advertised my choice of food my first time will be my last.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a first-time guest, I trulyAs a first-time guest, I truly enjoyed the experience. The decor was outstanding, the server was outstanding, and most importantly, the food was outstanding. I was very impressed and will visit again.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMJake, our server was great,Jake, our server was great, along with our dinners. EM's is one of new favorite special occasion locations!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPure Excellence!Everything was excellent. Eddie Melot's is a very class restaurant! It gives you that "High" class feel with very reasonable prices for the quality of service and food! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who's looking for a special night. As my wife stated, in her 50 plus years, "I think it's the best steak I have ever tasted!"4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Wait staffExcellent food. Wait staff attentive but not intrusive. The only down side and Rahe reason for the mediocre rating for wait staff was due to the extended wait for the entrees to be served. They should do a better job of managing expectations in that regard.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for our anniversaryWe went for our anniversary and requested ahead of time a quite table. We recieved a very nice table in front of the fireplace with a nice outdoor view. We loved everything we ordered except I did not care for the fish I ordered (sea bass)I am very healthy eater and felt the fish was prepared in to much butter or something that made it look very greasy. Eddies potatoes were delicious however a little to rich for my taste, every spoonful I took I worried about all the fat that was in it. My husand had the chef special of lobster ravoli w/shrimp and it was awsome. I also had a salad and was delicious. Our waiter Chris was excellent. We would recommond this resturant to our freinds.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time hereThis was our second time here and I have to say that it's by far your best choice for your fine dinning option. Both times the stakes were cooked perfectly and if you like to have a good cup of soup before your meal you can't go wrong with any of your options. Can't wait to go back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent; TruffleFood was excellent; Truffle fries were fabulous. Filets had great flavor. Wine list well organized. Carrot cake was bit dry but made up for it in quantity. One piece provides enough for 4.
The side room (with fireplace) we were in was about 70% full and allowed for easy conversation. When leaving we noticed that main room was definitely louder.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding. FoodService was outstanding. Food was also very good - only negative was that it was served luke warm. Ordering coffee is a must - love the French Press and multiple options of what to put in your coffee (no need for desert) but can't miss the Red Velvet cupcakes.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIntimate, classy barNoshed off the bar menu. Meatloaf sliders were delicious - nice flavor and texture, though a bit of afterburn from the peppers, a little too much. Cheese sampling: excellent. Wine selection by the glass best I've seen in a long time. Mojito needs work. Corner table by the window in the bar is probably the best spot in the house for an intimate, classy, relaxed evening. Unexpected gem in a land of restaurants that think blaring music and noise level are desirable. I recommend this place for a long, leisurely evening (or lunch) with special friends. Looking forward to trying a steak next time, although menu is way overpriced. Bring your wallet.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. TheThe food was excellent. The only hing was that it took a little to long.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMbetter than I thought an overpricedbetter than I thought an overpriced steak and potato place would be-the bar menu drew us away from the dining room- even with a free entree coupon in hand! food was very good- several small plates-drinks, coffee service is exquisite! Great burger choice and oooh bleu cheese chips???4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNice lunch spotNice place to do lunch with a friend or for business. It was quiet and that made our time together productive. Enjoyed the food and the service was excellent.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the splurgeBeautiful restaurant. As soon as you walk in the door, you know this is going to be a great experience. A great addition to the restaurant scene in the Naperville area. Finally you don't need to go all the way to Chicago for a great steak! Everything is a la carte do you are going to pay more for this dinner but it is worth it.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall great food! PricesOverall great food! Prices aren't cheap, but they food is really tastey.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice for corporate chainVery nice for corporate chain restaurant - It has the feel of a privately owned restaurant.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrating an anniversaryCelebrating an anniversary and noted it upon my Open Table reservation. They took time to look at the reservation and remembered it without having to remind them. Mark was an excellent server never felt rushed and he allowed us to really enjoy our company we were with and enjoy the food. I was not pleased with the first glass of wine poured, so the sommalia came over, asked what I was looking to enjoy, brought back a couple of samples for me to try until he was satisfied that I found what I was looking for. Excellent Service - They know how to treat their guests. Thank you for an enjoyable and memorable experience!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and a niceDelicious food and a nice atmosphere close to movies.

The manager gave us a private room, the board room i think it was called, it was a small room perfect for 8 people and made the entire evening that much more special.

Bottle wine list while not extensive was well rounded and a good variety of wines from around the world. Lobster all you can eat special was over the top.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMStop Using OpenTable!!!I really love Eddie Merlot's. Had a very nice time there. BUT, I will never again use OpenTable to make a reservation. The day after we ate at Eddie's, I got a harassing email from OpenTable chiding me for not keeping the reservation. This was a surprise to me, as I had just spent over $200 there the night before. I know I did not imagine it. So, something has happened and my reservation was not credited…and so OpenTable sent me a nastygram/hatemail as a result. Who needs that?
From now on, I am making the reservation directly over the phone with the restaurant. I had never tried OpenTable before and I will not be using it again. Life it too short to be harassed over email.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an excellent fineThis is an excellent fine dining restaurant proximally locate to the Naperville, Warrenville business corridor. Food was generally very good, as is the service. Price is expensive and unless business picks up will probably have a tough time making it. Relative to my most recent experience I ordered Alaskan King Crab legs for the entre. The legs were small and thin and disappointing compared to other venues of the same price. Previous experience at this restaurant the food was excellent so I am prepared to go back again to see if this wss just a one time problem.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb foot and impeccableSuperb foot and impeccable service. You can't ask for more!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FiletAmazingly tender perfectly cooked filet, fun shrimp appetizer, extensive wines by the glass, pro service.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis experience did not startThis experience did not start out too well when I found a car picked by the front door in a Handicapped Spot. The manager was very nice and told me he would notify the Warrenville police (which took a long time to come to ticket a car for $250). The food I had was ok, I did not think the service was five stars for a restaurant with a five star price bracket. I may or may not return here, but might check out another location of Eddie Merlot's sometime.12/17/2012 12:00:00 AMWe went on a Monday nightWe went on a Monday night at 9:30 pm, after the movie. Had the entire restaurant to ourselves (looks bad, right?).
Her pork chop was great, so she said. My ahi tuna was a surprise. It is served lightly braised, with a cool (meaning raw) center. I don't like sushi, and that is pretty much what they served me. The sesame coating was good, but raw fish is always flavorless (that's why I don't like sushi, besides the health concerns). We both took half of it home. I had the rest of the tuna last night, after I cooked it in the microvave. The chef may have said I ruined his creation, but it now had great flavor and went very well with the ginger or soy served with it. The asparagus side I ordered was great.
I will try it again.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
