    My husband and I were having a wonderful date night at this lovely restaurant . We enjoyed the raw and grilled oysters appetizer. I tried the 6oz wagyu and my husband had the Filet Del Mar. Both fantastic! I insisted on having my Wagyu rare (inspite of waiters recommendation which was for medium-rare) and was very happy with my choice! Meal accompanied by 2016 St Emilion. Totally worth it!

    Father’s Day dinner with my family. Food was basic, the steak and salmon was not seasoned at all and average. Nothing has flavor. My son’s filet was supposed to be cooked medium but it was well done. He ordered bacon wrapped shrimp with his steak which only included ONE medium sized shrimp. Our server was professional and attentive. However we were overall disappointed with our meal. We will stick with Eddie V’s and Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab.

    I had been previously and it was very good. Last night our server seemed to forget about us and we were there for two hours while we watched tables come and go around us. We didn’t even order appetizers (we did have salads, though). We all wanted dessert but we waited so long after dinner for him to come back we didn’t order it. We couldn’t be there any longer. I worked in the industry for 17 years including fine dining and I get it gets busy but not to the point I’ve ever neglected a table like that. If they were short staffed they shouldn’t have taken in so many tables. Just disappointing for how expensive it was!

    The waitress and Chef were very friendly and accommodating. My husband and I were checked on during every phase of the meal/evening…(drinks, appetizers, main course). …. No pressure just pleasure and quiet ambiance to enjoy the moments.

    As always, food was wonderful! We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary and there was a Happy Anniversary card on the table and we were served a complimentary creme brulee for dessert (even though dessert came with our fixed price dinner!) Ambiance was lovely.

    Eddie's has been my husband's favorite restaurant for several years & where we have spent thousands of $$$. After this experience, I doubt we will be back, ever. I brought a family who had fled Ukraine-stayed in Poland helping to translate, found their way to US to bury a parent in Arlington cemetery, & find some peace. To say they were looking forward to dressing up for a fine meal at a beautiful restaurant was a huge understatement!! I was so sad & embarrassed by the entire meal. I made a reservation; we were seated outside, which would have been okay under different circumstances. As we come outside we immediately see and have to make our way around tarps thrown over chairs and other haphazardly stacked furniture. When I attempted to quietly ask the hostess for other options, she ignored me. There was a very large, loud and very rowdy party who were physically jostling each other around at their table. The waitress was a rude and sassy woman who acted like she was doing us favor waiting on us. Alcoholic drinks were forgotten for over 40 minutes. The guys' steaks were to be medium rare, but were over medium. My girlfriend ordered hers blue. We didn't even have set-ups when the food arrived!! Need I go on????

    What a gem of a restaurant bar, seemingly hidden in plain site in One Loudoun. The many pluses are: - Great bar, cocktail selection steeped in hard to find bottles of anything (gins, bourbons) - prime sliders are a meal in themselves. - Tuna Poke is amazing - Beef Carpaccio is to die for - Amazing service coordinated across multiple staff Highly recommend.

    Eddie Merlot's ambience is like the cheesecake factory but with less good ambience as the kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant and the bar is completely removed from the main hall. There are very few booths, and for the very expensive price one pays it is totally not worth the expenditure. The service was good, but the drinks were weak and the meat was over charred. There were only about five other tables seated in the restaurant, which I think was due to the extremely outrageous price for a less than average experience.

    Eddie's isn't what it used to be. Food quality and preparation are below par compared to Flemming's and Ruth's Chris. The Calimari appetizer was greasy and rubbery. The tuna appetizer was good but not as good as the same thing from Flemming's. The filet mignon was thin and tasteless. The filet trio was just plain not good. We cut our losses and skipped dessert. Service was attentive and friendly but spotty at times. When you are obviously finished, clear the plates! Just try Flemming's. A cut or two above.

    Anniversary. With appetizers of spinach artichoke dip and crab cakes. The artichokes it was OK the crabcakes were not Maryland style and they were horrible. Then for dinner I had a 8 ounce fillet medium and my wife had the fish of the day. My fillet had no char but OK taste my wife's fish taste like it was from a frozen patty. They have Eddie's potatoes which taste like they were lumpy master taters with cottage cheese. They were horrible overall the dinner was a one out of a 10. But the server she was great. I will never go there again. Especially since DC prime is around the corner and a half times better.

    I usually do not write reviews but for my wife and I this was the worst experience we have had in this caliper of restaurant honestly in our whole lives. I will also preface this by saying I am always polite to wait staff, I never send back food, I never ask for things removed from the check and am very easy going. 1) first table we sat at had multiple long thick black hairs on the table, no one bussed it at all, it was disgusting and I asked that we change tables 2) with only a few clients in the bar area, our waiter while very nice, was very disorganized, could not answer very simple questions, and took a long time to check on us multiple times 3) my wife and I tried 3 drinks all of which were watered down, wayyy too sweet or just otherwise crap 4) the calimari was soggy and mixed over and undercooked 5) her tuna was tasteless and the dish poorly put together 6) I got a 70 dollar ribeye and wehn i spend that on a steak at a steak HOUSE i would assume they know how to cook mid rare... it came out VERY rare and the fat was not rendered at all. it was chewy undercooked mess so i sent it back, threy did not render the fat the 2nd time, and then barely cooked it more, and it was a bourbon brown sugar glaze and it was so over sweet I couldnt eat it. the general manager came over asked, " are you the ones who couldnt eat the tuna " i looked at him and said yes...we stared at eachother for about 10 sec before he tried to ask what was wrong with it making my wife very uncomfortable, ultimatley without my asking they removed it from the bill. end of the day if you wanta fantastic steak in the same area, go over to DC PRIME in Ashburn.. FANTASTIC on all fronts, from the staff to the food to the decor etc. My wife and I have a theory that this place was once good and then got popular but now I would say definitely seems to have let itself go. other great local spots include Lightfoot and Tuskies in Leesburg, both fantastic :) avoid!

    We requested the dining room but were seated at the bar. The table next to us was exceptionally loud…but it was the bar, so there is less expectation for quiet. The buffet was not up to Eddie Merlot’s standards by a long stretch. Many of the dishes were empty. The carving station served tasty but lukewarm steak and lamb. If you wanted a green vegetable, your options were a bland vegetable medley, or a salad. The whole restaurant was packed to bursting. And the price was $74 a person! And we only drank water. I love Eddie Merlot’s, and have never had an experience like this here. We were really disappointed.
