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.

I have been to this restaurant many times pre-covid, and have always loved the food. I considered it to be the best steakhouse in Northern Virginia. This time, something was just missing. The appetizers were fantastic, but the steak was average, and my dining companions agreed. A $50 steak should not be average. On a very positive note, our server was outstanding. She was not only very nice and knowledgeable, she knew when to be attentive, and really understood how to keep her distance as much as possible.

Unfortunately, I think this is just a sign of the times now. There were very few tables occupied, and I just don't see how good restaurants can provide the same quality without the revenue they are use to. I had the same experience at lunch today, at another upscale Tysons restaurant.

The manager was our server this time and when he noticed our steak came out med well as opposed to med rare, as we had ordered it, he swiftly had the food removed and replaced. It’s great to have service well done! ;)

We enjoyed our visit very much. The beet salad was lovely and I highly recommend it. The NY Sirloin was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We ordered the peppercorn ribeye and felt that it needed a little salt. Our least favorite dish of the evening was the peaches and cream. We thought that the thyme overwhelmed the peaches, reducing the potential for a fresher dish. It’s not our favorite desert. Our server was wonderful!

Painfully slow service.
Took almost 30 minutes for entrees to arrive after appetizers were cleared with no drink refills or communication about the wait.

Overall, Eddie Merlot's was good. The service was awesome but the food to me was sub par. The salads were very good but the main entree was just ok. I ordered filet mignon with alaska king crab meat on top and the crab didn't seem like alaskian king crab at all but just regular crab meat so that was disappointing. Other than that we had a nice time.

Had a wonderful dinner at Eddie's! Service and Food were both excellent and everyone on staff seemed genuinely happy to have dinners back inside. We sat in room adjacent to bar area and enjoyed the ambiance there. Like being outside but with benefits of being inside. Great job!

No need to go to DC for a great steak! Filet was fantastic, cooked to perfection. the broccoli was delicious and not overcooked and the staff was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend Eddie Merlot's.

Good food but very overpriced. I order a $50 steak and it wasn’t even cooked properly. Disappointed in my $180 meal.

While menu is a bit limited during these times, quality was excellent as usual! Management is doing the best they can do given staffing and COVID issues and we will continue to support them and be understanding. It’s so nice to go sit in a restaurant again and I’m thankful of the great service and food!

Nice to be eating out again and what a wonderful reentry into restaurant dining. Our first time at Eddie Merlot but we will be back. We felt very distanced and safe on the patio with plenty of room between tables and a thick, logo'd mask on all service staff. Food was excellent and the price was reasonable for an upscale dining experience. A new favorite! Thank you, Eddie Merlot!

Our first nice dinner since everything was shutdown due to COVID and it was wonderful. Eddie's was very welcoming and made us feel safe and comfortable in new environment. Our server was excellent as well as all the staff there. Even surprised us with a nice creme brûlée as a thank you for returning. Very nice gesture and we appreciated it.
