Eddie Merlot's - Warrenville Ratings and Reviews
Eddie Merlot's recently changed their menu. They've all but removed their classic favorites on the menu and focused completely on their steaks, which are good. But some diners have come to enjoy their other offerings besides steak which are now gone minus 4 meager offerings of seafood and about 3 other choices of another protein. (I mean, really, who in the hell would order "airline chicken"? This is not a joke. The literal description was "airline chicken".)
My spouse was really looking forward to enjoying one of either two dishes previously offered. Being disappointed over not having what she was looking for, we left after having enjoyed our appetizer.
If your entire party wants a steak, this is definitely your place. The service here is always acceptable. But the recently introduced reduced option menu is unacceptable for those wanting something other than steak. Kudos to Lido for his friendly demeanor, impeccable service, and our understanding of our decision to leave. We have enjoyed Eddie Merlot's on multiple occasions in the past but, I sincerely doubt we will return with such a limited offering. I suggest the menu planners visit Morton's or Gibson's to see what a variety of choices a quality restaurant can offer.
David our server was excellent with his suggestions and timing of service. We had some dietary needs and he was very helpful. Kevin the manager checked on us --and even did us a great favor by getting our table ready a little early on Sunday -- We were celebrating my father-in-law 79th birthday. Loved the table side dessert -- I can't wait to go back!!!
You have to start with the Smokin Shrimp
cocktail! It's so delicious and the presentation is not to be missed! Had the Tuna and The Steak Trio. All was delicious. Our favorite side is Eddie's potatoes....they are so good that you will scrape the bowl to get every last bite.
We have been dining here for several years and joined their Platinum Club (highly recommend!) right away. All cuisine is always excellent and service excels as well! The manager and/or assistant manager always stop by our table to inquire about satisfaction regarding food, etc. During our most recent visit, our server Hannah was great (highly attentive and personable) and we always enjoy the comfort and tv amenities in the lounge. They also have a great outside dining area! This is our favorite regular and special occasion restaurant! Can't go wrong here!
This was our first visit to Merlot's and we could not be more satisfied. We definitely will return. Our steaks were outstanding and cooked to perfection. All aspects of our dining experience were outstanding. In particular, our server, Timothy , was excellent. He was attentive to us , his full knowledge of the menu and wine list was well noted by us, and he had a great sense of humor which just added to our wonderful dining experience. Thank you, Timothy !
We received a $20 gift card from Eddie Merlot's in the mail and decided to give it a try. The service and food exceeded our expectations. My filet was one of the best cuts of meat I have had in some time - the melt-in-your-mouth kind. My wife had the bison steak and it was cooked to perfection as well. The service was wonderful. The entrees aren't inexpensive, but they are an excellent value. The wine list is extensive and has a very nice selection of reds. Although we visited Eddie Merlot's because of the give card, we will be back. It is a great place for an upscale meal.
We enjoyed the Florentine Halibut "Tableside for Two" entree as well as the red wines featured in their "Let It Flow" flight promotion. I recommend it highly- and it sounds like a popular choice.
Over the past couple of years I have enjoyed many of the menu items with my wife and other guests and never disappointed. Wine selection is nicely curated with a wide variety.
Server Ted was efficient and attentive. He picked up on subtle clues to personalize his attention to us.
Fri and Sat nights are highlighted with guitarist John Ivan, whose musicianship and repertoire is as good as the wine list. He wanders around but is never intrusive. He complements the ambience of the restaurant.
Eddie Merlot's in our go-to place for a nice dinner with great service. When the weather is nice their patio is perfect. This evening the patio was the perfect temperature with a light breeze. Also, they have a couple of new wine flights that are very enjoyable. There is also a table-side flaming peach dessert that we thought we would "taste" and ended up almost licking the bowls. Very good. I think it is limited time, so try it next time you go.
