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.

My husband and I were in the area, so we checked Open Table for a restaurant nearby to get dinner and chose Eddie Merlot’s.

The hostess who showed us to our table was friendly and she even complimented me on the color of my manicure. Our server was Cody and he was fantastic.

Bread and butter were good.

We started with the bourbon chicken flatbread. Amazing. Not too heavy and the flavors blended well.

I ordered the Parisian Lemon Drop. Shaken and poured at the table. Tasty and refreshing.

Entrees:
New Orleans Mixed Grill - very good flavor (mashed potatoes were heaven). Caesar salad was good too.

Bison filet, baked potato and broccoli (I thought the bison filet was a bit chewy and didn’t have enough flavor, I switched steaks with my husband). The baked potato was good, just add salt and pepper. The broccoli was cooked perfectly and seasoned well.

Vanilla cognac brownie - it was a nice lil show with it. He used a torch to heat the cognac and vanilla and then poured it over the ice cream and brownie. It was really really good.

My husband received creme brûlée dessert for his birthday and he loved it.

I would definitely return if I am ever in the area again.

We were there for our anniversary. The Prime Aged NY Strip was cooked perfectly, and the smoke, aged taste was outstanding. My wife ordered salmon, and she loved it. The service was outstanding.

Great everything - a little pricey. I always order the Ceaser, Filet and loaded back potato. The carrot cake is unbelievable, but a single serving is for at least 4 people.

Service was abysmal and when you’re paying $60 for a steak a la carte, I expect decent service. Slow service and staff not knowledgable about food or drinks. They did comp a steak that was ordered medium rare and cooked medium well. But the terrible service was like we were getting punked - it was that bad. Won’t return.

The dinner was great with good service and excellent meat and veggie choices. The tastes and presentations were top notch. Not a real fan of training during our "date night" as it was disruptive and not conducive for a pleasant experience as a customer. Perhaps observation of the trainee at the table and then the verbal aspects of training would be best done away from your guests. The dinner itself with food was a 5- the service was a 4 because of the obvious let me train the new employee on how to pour wine, etc. Overall experience was a 4.5-

Had a very enjoyable dinner at Eddie Merlot's last evening. Everything was incredible from cocktails to entrees. We had Filet Del Mar and Salmon which were both cooked perfectly along with accompaniments. Our server was attentive and took good care of us in spite of being very busy.

While I have had many great experiences at Eddie Merlots, this one left A LOT to be desired. Most of this was a result of the server and the service she provided....but the food left a lot to be desired as well (smoked ham dinner). Usually, I would recommend Eddie Merlot's but not for Mother's Day brunch.

We celebrated here for my husband’s 55th birthday dinner. Cassie was a wonderful server and Rob was great helping set up the BIG “5-5” balloons at the table that I dropped off earlier and he passed along the surprise carrot cake with a candle request too! Cassie and Rob are two of the best servers we’ve ever had!! They are always attentive and when my step son’s steak wasn’t quite cooked to his temperature Cassie immediately replaced it with the right one! All the food was delicious -the guys had steaks and I had the sea bass. We will definitely be back- it was a fabulous dinner!! 5 stars all the way!

I think we hit it on a bad night. We did not get a great table, it was right at the entrance to the restaurant and the entrance to kitchen, fairly loud. they were not very busy, but service was slow, close to 1/2 hour to get a drink. The food was ok, but expected more for the price range.

Ribeye had a lot of fat. Filet Mignon was ok, shrimp weren’t good (possibly not from the US), and the crabmeat didn’t taste fresh. Manager got defensive when we complained. Won’t go back.
