Night out with my wife
I thought the experience as a whole was incredible, From the food to the service. With the price point being what it is and the expectation being higher it's sometimes hard for the establishment to live upto the expectaions, but you guys did it.
There were four of us and we ordered the Scallops, the 7oz filet, the salmon and the snapper and the chef definitely hit a homerun with all four entree's not to mention the asparagus and the brocolli as family stuyle proportions.
we finished our meal off with table side banana's foster and Leslie hit it out of the park with that experience as she did with the entire meal.
Thanks to your entire team and especially Leslie as we will be sure to request her in the future.

If your looking for a very romatic spot this is the place. The music really topped it off. A very nice place.

Steakhouse Amongst Steakhouses
There are a "handful" of good steakhouses in this area, and after our first trip it appears Eddie Merlot's is one of them! Great food, service, and environment. Staff and management very attentive and concerned with your personal experience. For a great steak and good service go to any of the "handful," and for a great steak + exceptional service Eddie Merlot's should get a shot!
We had the big rib eye and filet/seafood combo special with parmesan fries and mushrooms. Crab cake appetizer and brownie desert, all very very good. They even brought out a complimentary cupcake to help us celebrate our anniversary!

Loved our Experience!
We went here for our 30th Wedding anniversary and loved it. Pricey, so it was saved for a special occasion, but we had great service and food was so delicious!

Perfect Anniversary spot and more
Downtown Louisville restaurant all it's suppose to be! GREAT for couples on that special night (us) or the business crowd with
lots of expense account money...
The only problem , order what you are comfortable with. The 'kobe' rib-eye was really fatty...and therefore.......but the other steaks
looked amazing..We never order this and should not have experimented when so pricey. But on the advise of waiter Sean ordered it medium ...( to rare) Not a good idea for us as it was fatty and stringy, not easy to cut, but other than that
the dinner was truly a delight...love those hashbrowns and tempura style green beans..Excellent wine by the glass, and good prices on those..I sure hope they don't raise the wine prices=fair for the choice!

perfect for a romantic, fun dinner
I surprised my wife by taking her here for our 21st wedding anniversary,...neither of us had been but it came highly recommended. We had a wonderful time,..not a thing could be improved upon. Wonderful service and wonderful meals. The portions were surprisingly large so the next night I warmed the remainder of my steak and my daughter commented that if it tasted this good a day later she couldn't imagine how it must have tasted that night. Thanks!

Very Nice Birthday Celebration
Our second visit to Eddie Merlot's and we will continue to visit as special occasions occur. The service was outstanding, the waiter was very knowledgeable on the menu selections, as well as the wine list. Service was prompt and courteous. Food was very good, flavorful, hot and seasoned just right. The chef's selections on the menu were not overwhelmingly expensive and were just the right amount on the plate to fulfill a decent appetite. Kudos to Eddie Merlot's for a birthday dinner celebration done right.

A great addition to downtown
We first discovered Eddie Merlot's in Indianapolis, and we were delighted when they opened in Louisville. Since then, they've done us proud with their fine food and service. Excellent!

The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was outstanding and the flaming dessert was very entertaining. It was a birthday dinner for our daughter and she loved that they did not embarrass her but made her feel like it was a special night just for her. It was expensive but worth it.

Fun new restaurant
We had wanted to try this place as we visit Louisville frequently! What a great place. Loved the atmosphere as well. Happening place on 4 th street live! Loved the shrimp cocktail. Neat presentation. Steaks and salmon were delicious!

Great place to take a client!
I work for a Fortune 500 company, and we entertain clients often. We took a client to Eddie Merlot's and I have to say that I'm confident the excellent customer service, fantastic ambiance, and overall wonderful experience helped play a part in our securing a long term extension with the client. I can't say enough about the overall experience. I will return, and not just when I have clients to entertain.
A special thank you to the staff and management of the Louisville location. Kudos and Bravo!!

one of the nicest restaraunts in Lousiville I've been to
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
For a special occasion it was great. Some cons:: the restaurant was incredibly cold!!! The mashed potatoes turned rock hard very quickly due to the cold. The lobster on top of the mashed potatoes were tough and dried out
Pros::: our waiter Michael was fantastic My husband and I split a salad and he brought it in 2 dishes
The red velvet cupcake for my birthday was awesome
Over all good dinner
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service started off great but mid way I felt we were forgotten.

Great dining experience!
We went here to celebrate hubby's bday. He loves going to fancy places for great steaks and this did not disappoint. We arrived a bit early and were seated right away; he was given bday greetings by all staff. Food was excellent; presentation was awesome. His steak was perfect and my grouper was awesome. The only negative about the entire evening is it was cold in the restaurant. Not cool; cold. Ladies, take a wrap; gents, wear a coat. Be sure to order coffee with your dessert; best coffee presentation I've ever seen. We've been to Jeff Ruby's, Ruth's Chris, Morton's.........this was better by far.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A perfect "special place"!
We were looking for a special place to just get away and enjoy each other's company. We found it. Not only was the atmosphere perfect for our get away, the food was second to none.

Don't miss the opportunity ...
Make certain that you put EM on your to-do list when in Louisville. It is a notch above most of the other establishments on 4th St when it comes to service. The food is outstanding. Personally, I gravitate toward the beef (USDA Prime) when I visit. The fact that they can offer a proper "Pittsburgh" on their steaks should say enough.
The wine list is exceptional and the prices are what you'd expect at a nice restaurant.
We left there "fat & happy" and can't wait to go back again.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Warm and comfortable atmosphere
We very much enjoyed our evening at Eddie Merlots. the staff was very friendly and accommodating to our requests. I was very pleased with the additional staff that kept our water glass filled, however i would have liked the main server to inquire with us for additional drinks.
Overall a very pleasant experience.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner was fabulous. The service was excellent. Best steak I have ever
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating an anniversary and this restaurant always pleases. The grilled Grouper special was wonderful. Would have given the review 5 stars, but we were put into the side room rather than the main dining room, which was disappointing. The main room is beautiful! The side room is ordinary and we were staring into the empty hall of the adjacent office building. If I owned the place I would decorate the side room just like the main dining room to avoid that issue. We looked very forward to the dinner and it did not reach expectations because of the seating.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
perfect for entertaining
dined with a large out-of-town client group and everything was delicious. Filet, lobster mac n cheese plus dessert were all cooked to perfection. service was fast and efficient and very knowledgeable. great downtown location.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great wine list! Enjoyed sitting
Great wine list! Enjoyed sitting up at the bar prior to our reservation. Tried the hot seafood platter for the appetizer. Phenomenal calamari (light crunch with sesame) and rock shrimp. Loved all of the sides that we picked for the group. My filet was like butter. Great place!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great option for client dinner
Our team had a great night along with two visiting clients. Good menu choices, steaks cooked perfectly and quality service--what more can you ask for? The room was busy as expected when a big trade show is in town, but the noice level was still quite acceptable--much appreciated when you need to have some business conversation over dinner. Very happy with the choice of Eddie Merlot's.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
very good, w / op for improvement
this was our second visit, we were here a year ago. I would absolutely go back and likely will next year when we again return for the annual event we attend. The service was very attentive through most of the dinner and actually on some occasions exceptional. although there were a few times where we felt forgotten by waiter. I guess comparative to the mostly exceptional service, these brief lapses stood out. we had a bone in wygo rib eye and bone in (first time every had this) filet. both in the high 60.00 range. the ribeye was perfectly cooked at med rare and the filet was a bit undercooked on inside but came back in moments . both steaks were better on the outer eating and got less than expected toward center. apps great. great bourbon
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service
The best steak and service I have ever had in Louisville bar none!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My steak was almost fork tender. The bananas foster prepared table side sealed the deal. I will return!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I were celebrating our ten year anniversary and I could not have planned for dinner to go better. The whole evening was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and at the end of our dinner they made us a special dessert for our anniversary. They really went out of their way to make the night unforgettable. I will spend nights wondering when I'll be able to get that lobster macoroni and cheese. Highly recommend Eddie Merlot's if you're looking for a great night.

Celebrating my wife's birthday. All the servers knew and wished her a Happy Birthday and supplied a red velvet cupcake for dessert. Enjoyed the food and service very much.
We retired to the bar to enjoy another glass of Eddies Merlot.

Best filet ever. Competent
Best filet ever. Competent and attentive waiter (Charlie) and wait staff. Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Never felt rushed. Bananas Foster prepared at the table were excellent. Made reservations for our next "special occasion" before we left.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
good food, good experience
This is my 3rd Eddie Merlot's visited, and it has been consistently strong. Very good food. Very good wine list. Friendly, albeit slow service at this location. Coffee (via press) is delicious.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff was very attentive to us. Always making sure that we were alright and comfortable. The food was excellent. This is the place to come to enjoy yourself and also entertain that special someone.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
There was nothing to complain about. I will be a repeat diner.

First Time, I will Be Back
Our experience was great. I really like the menu. Unlike most "New York" type steak house, Eddie's has a diversified menu with prime steaks but also less expensive offerings that come with a salad and side dish. I had the bone in filet and it was as good a steak as I have had anywhere. My wife had the New Orleans mixed grill which was a great value and was delicious. Our server was very helpful and provided great service without being overbearing. There are several items I want to go back and try.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I use the term "Value Meal" with the array of food available around every different origin imaginative, when selecting a choice for dinner and a little business. The value of the food becomes a less determining factor as for the quality of food is the decisive notion for the final selection. Choosing Eddie Merlot’s was a group decision but that this was our first visit as a group. The result was a fantastic dinner for four with a bottle of wine and desert that was cleaned form the plate. A shared desert as the size of servings provided are more the adequate to fill the hunger of any foodie that enjoys steak and or seafood. Eddie Merlot’s has entered our short list of choices and was a great value for four as we paid the same for two!

Atmosphere, Food & Service TERRIFIC
Our service and food was wonderful!!
My friends birthday and he had never been there.
He loved everything and said he will return.
Ian waited on us with a lady who shadowed him.
He was a great waiter very attentive.
Happy Holidays !'

A Great Evening
My husband and I went for a special occasion. This was my third visit. On all three visits with 3 different wait persons the service was excellent. The food was consistent which is ALWAYS a criteria for me in returning to a high end Resturant. The pace of the meal was spot on. Even a request to turn the volume down on the background music was attended to immediately. I would give this a 5 but my only slight complaint is that the sides are a little uninspired. Not bad just would like to see more skills from the chef. Otherwise main courses are great. Love the shrimp cocktail with the spicy horseradish!
