The food at Eddie's was excellent, as always. From the sweet and spicy shrimp appetizer, to the creme brulee dessert, it was all delicious with a pleasing presentation. Our server, Jonathan, did a fabulous job taking care of us and making us feel welcome, even in the midst of taking care of a big party in the other room. We keep coming back, for special events as well as a casual burger, because the personal service nicely compliments the great food.

Waited an hour to be seated after making reservation in advance.

My steak was room temp warm, dry and NOT cooked properly.

This was suppose to be a special event for my party, and it was ruined!

Bad on management ethics.

They struggle with keeping reservation times, and the hostesses had attitude. Hadn’t been there in quite some time. Took grown children and spouses. They were slammed but no excuse. They brought my son a dirty martini without the olive juice and brought back a shot glass with some olive juice instead of remaking the drink. We politely asked them to remake it. Shouldn’t have to do something like that. Won’t go back. Too many other options.

We had a wonderful server, Michael, who bared a strong resemblance to the actor who played Magic Mike! What a thrill! He was efficient as well as very pleasant...it was my boyfriend’s bday and he gave us a complimentary desert! Needless to say it was delicious! What a lovely memory this experience has caused! Thanks Eddie Merlot!!

Eddie Merlot's is ALWAYS good. Great food, good drinking, outstanding wine list. Yes, it is pricey, but well worth the extra $$$. If you don't like something speak to the manager, he is always outstanding. AND DON'T FORGET THE CARROT CAKE! Best carrot cake ever! and it lasts us three days.

Very good food and decor. However, service was excruciatingly slow. Sunday dinner at 6 PM took over three hours, in spite of our attempts to move things along (example: it took over twenty minutes to get the check after we specifically requested it, after a 2.5+ hour dinner with extensive gaps between the courses).

Enjoyed everything from the apps, side dishes, wine selection, main course and desserts. It was nice to find out that they had notes from our prior dinner there about what wine we chose the last time. Was helpful in reminding us what we previously enjoyed there.

We came to try the new menu and celebrate my husband's birthday. Steak Diane prepared table side was very good! Would order again. Was disappointed that Eddie Merlot's markets themselves as "upscale" but could not afford to stick a candle in a dessert and acknowledge a birthday, really?? Waiter mumbled something about next time order a creme brulee ahead of time -- ?? How much does a scope of ice cream cost??

My steak was burned. I did ask for it to ne well done with no pink and blood. I have previously had a steak there before that was not done, but I sent it out and it was perfect. I asked the server to place the points on my tab, he took it upon himself to use my birthday gift card. I did not want that because I was coming again with family and was goin to utilize it then. He was not helpful, nor did he bring out the bread until we where almost finished with the soup. He seemed very despondent sad to say.

Waitress was annoying constantly around when you didn't need her and when you did need her to take back the food which was cooked incorrectly, she was never around! My salmon had to be sent back twice, and then couldn't eat it! It was drenched in oil! It is already an oily fish!

Underwhelming and overpriced. We had the top of the line Wylarah filet mignon ($100 for 7oz), which I would have expected to be very tender, juicy, and tasty. It was not bad but I have had much better Wagyu or even ribeye steaks elsewhere for less.

Chateaubriand was outstanding - perfect pink center! Scallops were also delicious and great pick. Finished off with triple chocolate cake. Overall very Nice ambiance, however, definitely on the loud side. High ceiling so everything echoes. Would definitely visit again.

Starting off the service was horrible and pretty much messed up our evening plan. We had a event after dinner. Our reservation was for 9:30p we were seated the only person that came to our table was the guy who asked if we wanted water. After that we waited for at least 30 minutes before we asked a gentleman if he could find our server. Turns out he was our server. Then he took our drink order we waited a while for the drinks, then he did our appetizers and meat at the same time. We waited a while for the appetizers then he didn’t put the meal order in until the appetizers were empty. We did receive a free appetizer and dessert. He was friendly but just the fact that service took SO long that we missed the second part of our event and had to reschedule was very frustrating.

First time here and probably the last.... food was bland and in my opinion not worth the money the appetizer which we had the eddie signature sides were cold.. server scott was attentive but that couldnt make up for poor food that your paying through the teeth for and in my opinion i could of received a better meal at a much better price at outback....

Went for anniversary dinner and was a great choice. Short wait for a table and place was elegant with nice jazz playing. Bar area was inviting and lively. The Tuna poke was a great refreshing starter and the crab corn bisque although rich was amazing. We had steak Dianne tableside service which was nice...its a lost art. They had a bit of a flare up issue but the server handled it well without burning anyone! Food was great. Extensive wine list and great dessert menu. We were stuffed but our server gave us a dessert anyway and they had a card signed by the staff for our anniversary. Our server had a troublesome table of eight which slowed him down a bit but I can say it was a great experience.

They didn't seat us, they just.pointed to the table. The blue cheese dressing tasted like ranch. The lamb chops were fat, the steak Diane had very little sauce.
The scallop.potatoes were dry. The valet didn't hold the door for my wife.

This use to be one of our favorites until they changed the menu. You use to be able to get items with a salad and/ or dessert. Not anymore. They have removed the least expensive items, that still were not inexpensive, and the entrees come with nothing. Very expensive to the point where it is over priced and not worth it compared to other restaurants.
