Eddie Merlot's - Louisville Ratings and Reviews
Left a lot to be desired. Bread never came, wedge salad was not a wedge salad at all, jumbo shrimp was dry, and it took almost an hour to get raw oysters and two sides. Cancelled the sides because we had to make a play. Server "forgot" to take the sides off the final bill. Finally, server forget to include a pin with the cc receipt, so I had to track down another server to get a pen. Not at all like it use to be!
The atmosphere was nice, servers were nice, the French onion soup was wonderful, but believe it or not the filet Mignon steak was dry with not much flavor. I know it is the holidays so a lot is going on, but on our way out we got to see a little more of another guest than I would have liked! She intentionally flashed us. I was shocked, but that was not the restaurants fault; she had obviously reached an obnoxious point. I would try again, but would get a different meat selection next time.
We were in town for a concert on 12/1/17 and made dinner reservations through Open Table. It was quick, easy and very accommodating. We arrived a bit early, so decided to have a cocktail at the bar. Quickly found a seat and bartender was very nice and accommodating, as well as knowledgeable, easily answering our questions. Drinks were fantastic. At the time of our reservation, hostess promptly showed us to our table--a quiet corner booth. Our server promptly arrived and was very accommodating and knowledgeable about all aspects of menu and made appropriate suggestions and reccomendations. From appetizers to check, it was an amazing experience. We had the wagyu ribeye and cedar planked salmon and both were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. Never felt rushed, but he kept things moving, knowing we were headed to a concert, so we were out the door in plenty of time to arrive at the venue without rushing. Experience couldn't have been more perfect!
Food was good, but steak came out under cooked and had to be returned. Service was VERY slow. They tried to make it up by offering free desert. Overpriced for what you receive. Everything individually priced. They over recommended sides, so there was quite a bit left on the table because we ordered at least one more than we needed.
This was our first time at this restaurant and we went to celebrate my birthday. The staff was friendly and sat us right down. The waiter was also friendly and he even gave us a creme brûlée to go. The food, oh my, I loved that steak! My husband and I ordered the Chateaubriand which was dinner for two with broccoli and sweet potato casserole and everything was delicious! Better than Ruth’s Chris for sure. We will be going back again!
Second time we've dined here - in a way it is a "typical" upscale steak restaurant - but they execute very well, as is usually the case with other restaurants in this class (i.e. Ruth's Chris, Morton's, etc.). It was very good - great food, great service - pricey but worth it. Nice location and ambience. Nice bar area. All-around very solid/enjoyable experience - we would definitely return.
Hands down best steak we’ve ever had! We’ve had steak at several high end restaurants, but none compare to Eddie Merlots. The service was phenomenal, the food was perfect, it was a perfect birthday surprise for my husband! We would recommend it to anyone wanting to go somewhere special for a special occasion!
We visited Eddie Merlot’s on the last night of our recent trip to Louisville. It was the perfect way to end our little vacation. The atmosphere is very elegant, the service was outstanding, and the food was simply perfect! I had the filet mignon and hubby had the bourbon ribeye. Both were divine! They had a great selection of wines, bourbon, and cocktails. The highlight of the evening was Bananas Foster prepared table side! A really special evening!
Best filet mignon I've ever eaten. Great mashed potatoes and macaroni with 5 cheese. Very casual inviting atmosphere. Great location. We walked by another (Cincinnati)steakhouse that was actually on the same property as the Galt House where we stayed to get here. I'm very glad we did. MUCH better food.
We sat in the bar because that was the only place in the restaurant with windows. For a better overall experience stay with the dining room. I tried a Burnt Orange Manhattan. It was the best Manhattan I've ever had. They have quite a few specialty drinks. Next time we go I'll try a different one. We had the Chateaubriand - Excellent: Tender, juicy, flavorful. Superb service by Aixa, attentive throughout the dinner without being pushy. Will ask for her next time. Overall experience 9. A Must Try.
