Eddie Merlot's - Burr Ridge Ratings and Reviews
Every time we come to Eddie Merlot’s, we love it. It is a beautifully decorated restaurant - Elegant but very comfortable and the service is exceptional. The menu has a good variety of items to choose from and everything we have ever ordered is delicious. The bacon wrapped shrimp and the Burrata with tomatoes appetizers are RIDICULOUSLY good. The steaks are tender and always cooked perfectly. The sides really are big enough to share, but you may not want to. I love the cauliflower gratin and the roated brussel sprouts. My children’s favorite part of the evening is always the desserts made tableside. They ordered the Baked Alaska and it was presented beautifully and was delicious. This is definitely our go-to restaurant for family special occasions.
Our group enjoyed the crab cake appetizer, one of the best we've had! Steaks and seafood were cooked to perfection. Service was good initially but our waiter seemed to disappear, a few of our guests wanted wine with their meal and he did not check on us until our meal was almost over. Overall we had a lovely evening. Our other two experiences prior to this were great! I would recommend you try this restaurant.
We tried the Steak Diane for Two for the first time. It was delicious and fun to have it partially prepared tableside. We shared a salad before it. The steak was very tender and the mushrooms were delicious covered in the wine sauce. We also had a bottle of Trivento Malbec wine that we have had before and enjoyed again. Our server, Ashley, was attentive and helpful. She also brought us a complementary crème brulee for my birthday. It was a lovely evening out for my birthday!
Excellent dinner service was amazing . Yulia was so sweet. Suggest better vermouth for manhattans. Upscale dining and they served martini and Rossi, no Vya, noilly prat or cupano. Excellent Rye whiskeys. The bartender should have chilled the Manhattan first. The large cube melted because the liquor was warm. Not happy with a $20 drink bring Just ok.
I had made Nye reservations about 2 months in advance, we arrived 20 minutes early and were asked to wait by the bar. We ordered drinks and were commenting on how it would be horrible to sit at the small 2 seat tables around the bar as there were tons of people packed in waiting for their own dinner table. About 20 minutes later the host came into the bar calling my name stating that they had texted me which I never received, and the table was ready. She preceded to walk us over to the exact table that we were commenting about. Needless to say my fiance refused to sit there! The host seemed a bit flustered and took us to a nice 2 person table in the main dinning room. Our server Anna was great!
Thank you, Geoff and the rest of the staff. Our family always looks forward to our special holiday dinner at EM. There are no bad dishes at EM. All is exquisite. Even the cocktails are delightful and refined. Whether for s special occasion or after work happy hour, you cannot get better than EM.
We have been before and always bought steaks. Even a member of their frequent diner club. They do a good job with steaks. We had a couple non steak people with us. Not good. Adfitonally the waiter was hard to find, food was warm not hot. Service was slow without any spunk. We were there over 2 hours and only served 2 drinks. The lower level bus and water people impectable.....almost irritating.
While we enjoy the food at Eddie Merlot's, every time we make a reservation at the Burr Ridge location, we are seated in the bar area. This particular visit was so loud in the bar area, my husband and I couldn't hear each other talking. It would probably be a better experience if we could sit in the dining room.
We dine @ EM's several times a year and enjoy the restaurant, the service , and the food. This time it was for a special occasion and we had to wait a few minutes beyond our reservation time to be seated. The staff and management recognized this and went above and beyond to make up for it. We appreciate the personalized outstanding service and of course the appetizer and 1st round on the house. Well done and thank you.
Decor of establishment was very nice and welcoming, almost a homelike feel to it. Service was great all questions answered, always there for help. Food was some of the best I have ever had, the Wagyu New York Strip was tender and juicy, a melt in your mouth feel. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
