Steak
Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef and Seafood starts with U.S.D.A. Prime Beef. Only 2% of all U.S. beef is awarded this superior certification. Eddie Merlot’s ages the beef naturally to an unparalleled standard of tenderness and flavor. The chef then personally selects each piece for the optimum proportion of marbling, and texture, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender, and juicy steaks to your specifications. To seal in the flavor, the steak is flash-sear on high-heat grills. Eddie Merlot’s has created one of the hottest concepts today; the wine bar provides more than 40 wines by the glass and a very extensive reserve wine collection by the bottle. The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot’s boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

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.

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!!!

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.

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!!!

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.

Couple of issues this time: 1. The tomahawk rib-eye was cooked correctly (medium-rare), but was cold by the time it arrived at our table. I suspect is rested for too long in the kitchen. 2. The server pouring the wine into our wine glasses was pouring heavily in one glass, but left much much less for the other glass at our table. Without exaggeration, my wife probably ended-up with one-third of the bottle versus my getting two-thirds of the bottle from a per pour perspective.

For the price you shouldn’t have to wait 45 -55 min for appetizers. Food was good, descent wine selection, server was nice. Nothing that blew us away.

we were totally disappointed.

The bread was great, the shrimp cocktail had no sauce which was its signature, the chopped salad had no reason to be so overpriced other than it was mainly lettuce, the creamed spinach was all cheese and no spinach.

The steaks were very good but when I opened by box when i got home my leftover very expensive steak has been placed in the middle of my leftover very creamy, creamed spinach.

Not a great experience for a $ 200.00 dinner !

We have teen to the restaurant for many times. Service is always excellent by Taya. She gave us an excellent service. Excellent wine selection and chilled martini. Our crab and avocado salad was delicious. My husband Bison ribeye was cook to perfection, but my bourbon ribeye was over cooked and 2 shrimp wrapped with bacon were raw. I had to send them back. I was big disappointed because you are steak house you should know to cook steak to perfection

Food was great as always. Service was lacking. Our server. Andy, was quite the talker... with the other tables. We were 20 minutes before he took our wine order. Entree came before we were half way through the appetizer. Love the food and ambience here but service lacked that night.
