The food was decent, but our server was terrible (Eddie). When we spend that kind of money to go out to dinner, we expect our server to act like he enjoys his job and not talk down about his co workers. And $18 for valet? Hyde Park is a better choice for us, unfortunately.

It was our anniversary. No complimentary anything. Cheap!
The food was so average; the temperature was warm and not hot.
Steak was thin and over cooked. Never eat there again. I’ve cooked a better filet at home with steak from Costco.

Our second time there. Beautiful decor. Attentive service. Delicious entrees and appetizers. The only comment would address the desserts. They need to find something other than creme brûlée, carrot cake, and chocolate cake. The only dessert missing was cheesecake. Does every restaurant have to have the same heavy repetitive desserts?
I’d definitely go back any time.

It may seem a little pricy but the food was fantastic. The service was some how even better!

The king crab and corn bisque was perfect. The thick cut pork chops were cooked very well and the peaches were ripe and sweet.

The service was impeccable as always. One of us ordered the 3 filet medallions which were delicious and the tater tots - which were not what was expected, but tasted really good.
I had the shrimp and would not order again. They were almost like steak in their consistency rather than like lobster which is more what I am used to. They tasted fine.

Yes, the food is fantastic, and the service is impeccable....but for most of the world this is going to be a special occasion restaurant. We arrived a little before 5, and took the bartenders recommendation on martinis...spot on. Since they were slow, the maitre d' was kind enough to tell us to enjoy our cocktails and we could be seated whenever we were ready. Our waiter was very personable and knowledgeable, and directed us to a wine on special that was perfect for our dinner selections. Our steaks were done to perfection, as ordered, and the lobster tail was very tender and flavorful. The lobster and corn chowder bisque was a winner. The crab cocktail was good, but I prefer it without a dressing to truly savor the flavor of the crab. Side dishes were OK and in massive portions so we were able to share. We were a little surprised the mushrooms and the brussel sprouts were not more flavorful, but, we were there for the steak and, it was phenomenal. We saved room for desert which was massive....the chocolate cake was a wall of chocolate and delicious although very rich. Even with two of us partaking, we took some home. It was a special occasion, so we did splurge, but the tariff added up quickly.

Took our daughter here for fine dining over parents weekend at PITT and Eddie Merlots did not disappoint. We ordered the Steak Diane for two and the Cedar Plank Salmon. Both were cooked as ordered and both were delicious. We'll be back for sure on another trip.

Service overall was exceptional. Though, courses came rather quickly, not a lot of time for each.
Bread showed up at the same time as our appetizer. We had the crab cake, which was delicious. I had the bone in filet and my wife had a bourbon T-bone steak. Tough to judge because we both felt our steaks were undercooked from what we had ordered (medium and medium-rare). My bone in filet was not particularly well seasoned, leaving the uncooked middle unpalatable to me. Overall, a little disappointed given that this is a steak restaurant and the worst part for us was the steak.

The food was delicious. Everything that we ordered was cooked to perfection. We were there for over 2 hours and never felt rushed. My only negative comment would be when the check was presented. Our main waiter (we had 2) did not speak a word to us after he presented us with the check. Did not thank us for patronizing the establishment nor did he bid us a good evening. I found that to be strange as he was quite pleasant for the entire time we were dining.

I've been to just about every restaurant in Pittsburgh and I got to tell you this is by far the best one. The food quality is ridiculous but, you will pay for that. I travel and eat at high end restaurants often and this is the closest thing our city of Pittsburgh has. Took my skeptical parents they're for this visit and they walked away and loving it.

The staff did an excellent job going over the top to make us feel welcome and special. We will absolutely be back. Great dining experience. Eddie Merlot’s knows class and customer service!

Great food and friendly staff. We enjoyed the flavors, from the fresh bread to the main course. Everything is pretty pricey because they give you big portions, which satisfies most people. But in my opinion, fine dining means rich, buttery food and there is no need for Cheesecake Factory portions. Also, if you are not a greedy eater, you feel wasteful. It would be nice if they offered smaller better priced items. I ate 1/4 of my $50 main course and the three of us ate 1/2 of the huge dessert dish.
