Elegant, warm surroundings; helpful, knowledgeable staff; menu with variety for all. Courteous and accommodating to palates who love to tweak ingredients. Staff does not make you feel rushed but cared for, food is expertly prepared and served with the least interference in table conversation. Music is soothing, restaurant is well lit, environment has golden colors as a base with artwork that compliments the textured decor yet has the feel of a natural setting and blends into an overall soothing atmosphere. All in all, the visit makes for a memorable experience.

Had a nice time and the service was EXCEPTIONAL. I would request a more involved Red Wine list with more library Cabs as there was not much to choose from. Also with the library request would to not over inflate the pricing.

Second time trying EM, first time was not great this time it was great primarily because of our server Eddie, he was outstanding. Personable, capable and sincere. Salmon was the best I’ve ever had. Expensive but heads above similar competitors in Pittsburgh’s

My husband and I had the pleasure of having dinner at Eddie Merlot’s tonight. The food, service, and atmosphere is beyond reproach. Our waiter, Eddie, was professional, knowledgeable, and personable. We were very impressed with his attentiveness. My husband had filet Oscar and I had the veal Franciscan. Both were excellent. Highly recommend the cinnamon bun dessert as well. Anyone looking for a high quality dining experience should pay Eddie Merlot’s a visit....And ask for Eddie to serve you.

Pittsburgh has no shortage of high-end steak houses but Eddie Merlot's is our favorite. Excellent food, glitzy decor, and friendly attentive service (ask for Pat to serve you & say hello to Michael behind the bar) make Eddie Merlot's a cut above the others.

Terrific Service!! Delicious Food!! Abundant Ambiance!!
Went for dinner before Steelers/Packers football game and enjoyed everything about it!! Server was attentive to detail with just the right amount of attention. Food was very well prepared, fresh and quite flavorful (though over-priced). Ambience was lovely - good lighting, good acoustics, finely appointed. If you have the money, you can't go wrong at Eddie Merlot's!!

We were in town for the Steelers vs. Titans and Eddie Merlot's was a couple of blocks from our hotel and we took a chance as this was also the Light up Night in the city. We were promptly seated and the service was awesome. The food was fantastic and perfectly prepared. Worth the money and a great wine selection. If ever in town we will make reservations to enjoy this wonderful experience again. They made a wonderful vacation a lifetime memory.

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.
