Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef & Seafood - Ashburn
Waiter spilled glass of wine in new sports coat. Was not attended to properly. Now will not pay for the jacket. Entire celebratory meal ruined!
We keep on coming back for a reason. Excellent food, attentive (but not too attentive) wait staff, and overall excellent dining experience. We'll be back again.
Very disappointed in this restaurant. It's definitely, no Eddie V's! The server didn't seem knowledgeable of the menu, and didn't seem to be able to answer our questions regarding the menu items. The Waldorf Salad left a lot to be desired. Very sparse on the pecans, apples, and blue cheese crumbles the menu promised.
It took 25 minutes for the filet trio. The oscar was the best since it had a few pieces of crab. The Cedar Plank Salmon was okay, but nothing to write home about. The Jalapeno Scalloped potatoes missed the mark. They like the asparagus and much of the other food lacked seasoning.
Overall not a great experience. The sweet and spicy shrimp was the most flavorful thing although it was soggy and all of the tempura batter fell off when we tried to pick it up with a fork.
The ambiance was the best part. I do wish it was dimmer and had candles on the table. The valet walked over to our table and said "I'm about to go home, so here are your keys. Your vehicle is parked out front". The restaurant wasn't closing for another 30 minutes. I usually go to DC Prime, but made the mistake of switching to this restaurant.
Molly our server was amazing. She knew when to come to table and never interrupted any of our conversations. Truly appreciative of her stellar smile and great service
Mark was excellent. Good choice on wine and very attentive
Everything was great but our server was a bit flat.
Very expensive for just OK steak. For $100 per guest I would rather eat at Mastro’s or even Ruth’s Chris. Nothing special about this steak.
Excellent service! Steaks were the best and our wait station made great wine recommendations to fit our palette.
The service was impeccable. Server (think his name was Jeremy) was informative and friendly, never missed a beat.
We had the Chateaubriand for two, it was cooked and served with perfection. The meat was so tender and melted in your mouth.
The ambience is lovely and it was a great experience.
The food wasn't worth the price we paid. However, our server Jeremy was awesome!
Excellent meal, as usual. Could not have asked for anything more.
Great food and even better service. We truly enjoyed our night out with friends and family!
Service was fabulous- did not rush us out of the restaurant
This was a nice restaurant. Definitely higher end, if you consider the prices. We were a party of 10, which can be difficult. However, some basic items which I expect from a restaurant failed miserably. Had to ask several times to have water glasses refilled. One waiter took the orders, then another waiter came a few minutes later to take orders again. Meals came out at all different times. An appetizer that was forgotten was brought out as we were ordering dessert. One person, whose dinner was delivered much later than the others, just barely started her food when the waiters came passing around dessert menus then hounded us to order dessert. One waiter would get a drink order from two people, then leave, bring those drinks, and go to another person. Just not a peaceful and enjoyable evening for how nice the restaurant was ... expected more.
We celebrated our anniversary, as apparently did the two adjoining tables. Everything was great! I had one of the best steaks I’ve ever had and it was perfectly done. My wife had a small filet with crab meat and shrimp and she enjoyed it thoroughly. We were not ordering any dessert, but received a complimentary one and it was perfect. We will definitely go there again!
We dined at Eddie Merlot's for a birthday celebration. While the food was good, the overall experience was not. Our server was nice but the service was extremely slow. I could understand the slow service if the restaurant was busy. However, there were very few people in the restaurant. In fact, the manager was present and was only interested in one table. I would have thought someone could have walked through to at least refill our water rather than having to ask multiple times. I had to ask for our check after waiting a long time for our server to return. Will be awhile before we return to this restaurant. There are so many great restaurants in the area that treat their customers so much better!
Amazing food, amazing staff!
Mark our server was excellent. The only thing that wasn't perfect was where our table was, very close to 2 large groups. So a little less romantic than it could have been. The food was great the company was fantastic. The waitstaff was wonderful. No room for dessert.
Staff was busy with a larger party in another room. We should of just sat in main dining room instead of a table on the bar side. Now we know.
The service & the food was excellent. We look forward to returning!
Jeremy was amazing!!
The service was good just the food took a little bit longer then expected, but nice atmosphere and lovely setting.
We had a wonderful dinner at Eddie's! Our food and service were excellent. We shared the 10 oz ribeye and it was prepared perfectly and served beautifully. Thanks to all for making it a wonderful experience from cocktails to dessert!
Eddie Merlot has a wonderful atmosphere and the food is very flavorful. Do yourself a favor and order any steak. It's very good!
Delicious food with outstanding service. Thanks to Taya who always give us outstanding service
We ordered the meals from the special “Make a Wish Foundation” menu and the food took forever and was cold. Crab legs were awful. They did not taste good (too salty/fishy tasting) and were not split but they are on regular menu. Asked about splitting them and they said this was a special. Filet was tough too. Will never go back to this restaurant!!!
Food, meh. Carla, great server!! She made it worth it.
The service was excellent however the food was not. Rib-eye was cooked to order however it was not tender and had a bit too much fattiness.
I love going to Eddie Merlot’s. From the hostess, to the wait staff, server and management, everyone is always very pleasant. Most importantly the food is excellent. I have a dairy allergy however the chief was not skimpy on flavor, my bone in filet, with steamed broccoli was absolutely delicious.
Excellent steak, delicious appetizers and sides. Yummy carrot cake. We had a lovely evening!
Excellent service and food as always. The wait staff are always courteous.
First time my wife and I have dined here. Total experience from Food, Ambiance to Service was a 5 star experience. We highly recommend dining here for any occasion!
Andy is such a great waiter. He recognizes us when we come in. He’s a great asset for Eddie Merlot’s. Food was great as usual. Liked some of the newer items like the cheese board and steamed spinach. Did not like the new corn casserole. We really loved the creamed corn that was on the menu before the recent changes. Always a great wine selection too. We sat in the dining room since it was a special occasion but we really enjoy the bar area too. We’re very glad Eddie Merlot’s came to northern Virginia!!!
Great time, service and food were fantastic. Very sweet people who work there, made us feel at home.
The server was overwhelmed with serving 5 tables. We had been there before and had wonderful service. We had to flag the server we had from filling water to asking for bread to clearing the table. A little disappointed.
My husband and I chose to go to Eddie Merlots for our wedding anniversary dinner and we were greatly disappointed. The service was slow, food was mediocre, especially for the price that was paid, and there was no effort made by the staff to make our anniversary dinner special. Will likely not return.
Great experience. Only thing was there was a reception there and we were seated next to the open door so noice was a little loud but not distractingly loud.
Had the Wagyu outstanding
The restaurant is lovely. The decor is exquisite. The service is superb. The scallops were seared and served a top a corn and jalapeno relish. Unusual, but yummy.
