Eddie Merlot's - Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews
Excellent waiter, Shane. Really knew the menu and gave us good suggestions. My husband had the New Orleans Grill with steak, sausage and mixed veggies, while I had the filet mignon. Also ordered asparagus and the brussel sprouts with bacon, pancetta, caramelized onions and Parmesan cheese...ended up taking the sides home along with my birthday creme brulee!!!
Our experience was fabulous. Kim H was our waitress (requested) and she provided stellar service throughout the evening. We had another couple with us who had never been to Eddie's before. Well we now have a new supporter of the faire!
Thanks for another great evening and a stupendous time with Kim!
We went there with friends because we are all steak lovers and wanted to give Eddie Merlot's a try. The wine list was very nice and the server was very knowledgeable. The food was very disappointing. Our steaks were unevenly cooked and didn't have a lot of flavor. Most of the side dishes were overpriced for the portion sizes and were served lukewarm. We will not be returning.
Just our favorite restaurant for years....food is always excellent, steaks are out of this world and the berries foster (not on the menu) is always a must for us. Pricing is up there, but its what you would expect from a fine restaurant. I love the staff...never have had a bad server, we have our favorites, but anyone will do a great job. Get out there and give them a shot...you will not be disappointed.
We dined at Eddie Merlot's for New Year's Eve. It was very busy as most New Year's Eve's. We were seated late and our dinner took 3 hours. The food was excellent but the service was very, very slow and unacceptable. Between each course, there was almost an hour wait. The glasses from one bottle of wine to the other were not cleared. Appetizer plates never cleared until we asked. We were at the end or our meal and one of the last people in the restaurant when they started breaking down tables and making us feel like they couldn't wait until we left.
We enjoy dining at Eddie Merlot's for dinner, however I would hesitate to book a special occasion at this restaurant again. We made a reservation for New Year's Eve for 8:15 PM. We arrived at 8:05 and were not seated until 8:45 PM. We were told that "people were not leaving their tables so there were no tables available". The restaurant should take this into consideration when creating timeslots for a special occasion. My party believed that they had "over-booked" the restaurant which made the experience unpleasant for those who had to wait. We could not even get close to the bar to get a drink because so many other people were also waiting on tables. Once we were seated we had to wait quite some time for our drinks because the waiter said there were no martinis glasses available - they were all dirty????? This seemed inexcusable! Fortunately, the food was good which helped save the evening to some extent but I do not think any in our party would book a special occasion again at Eddie Merlot's
Was disappointed in that we where taken to our table that wasn't ready twice. Also it was extremely loud from the group's in there. The food was great. Our waitress was a little over booked with tables. I would return but it would be on a slow day.
This place was recommended by a friend and it definitely lived up to the hype. The service was excellent. Our waiter Nick was knowledgeable, nice, patient, polite and understanding. The food was soooooo good. I wanted fancy, great steak and wine and that’s exactlt what I got. The sides were out of this world too. I organized a going out night with some friends and l’m so happy a I took them there. They all told me it was a great choice!
The steak was delicious but everything else was just so, so. It has been quite awhile since we've dined at Eddie Merlots and was somewhat disappointed. The service (and food for that matter) was not nearly as good as I remember.
So nice to enjoy lunch at Eddie Merlots. Wish they were open for lunch year round! We enjoyed the new crab cake! Love the "cup" of French onion soup. Much better portion than the bowl! And we can't forge the over the top "Carrot Cake"
Nick was right on the whole lunch! Nick treats us perfectly!
Food was excellent with generous portions. We had Chateaubriand made to perfection. A little slow to get meal after the salad but not too terrible of a wait. The biggest shock to me was the 20$/glass of the house wine. I thought that to be a little exorbitant for the house stock. Great place to go though for special occasions.
