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.

We had a very nice dinner and dinner experience on Father's Day. The restaurant was busy and overall service was a little slow, though for us the pace was fine given the occasion (everyone was content to relax, drink wine, and talk). I suspect some groups might have gotten restless given the pace. The food was very good, well prepared and well presented. Our table seemed to test a lot of areas in the kitchen, different steaks as well as seafood dishes. Everyone was quite satisfied with their respective dinners. We had a great time and would recommend Eddie Merlot's to anyone looking for a "fine dining" experience. They are definitely a cut above the norm in the Ashburn area.

Menu was limited than several previous visits, which was disappointing. They removed beef carpaccio and the bone-in filet.

We were there to celebrate Father’s Day. It was our first time dining at the restaurant. We ordered calamari and it was pretty greasy. The foot overall was okay not something surprisingly.

Food was terrible ordered the calamari appetizers it was rubber like, ordered oysters were terrible and the filet was tough and shrimps were tasteless. Even the truffle fries had absolutely no truffle. Very bad dining experience

Have a wonderful dinner. The service seemed slow, but i'm not certain if that was due to the kitchen being slow or there not being sufficient wait staff. The food always arrived hot and was wonderful, the staff was very polite and professional, and it is a beautiful place. The noise was at times incredibly loud...we were seated in a more private area, and when walking through the main room it was very very loud. 4 stars only based on slowness and noise. Great food and very pleasant staff!

Great location. The food selection is very good. The atmosphere is friendly without being rushed. We took advantage of the bourbon tour. We started with the bourbon candied bacon, which was absolutely delicious. My husband had the flank steak and I enjoyed the lamb lollipops. The portion size is very good for the price. We'll be back.

Very disappointing! The Oysters Rockefeller were undersized, the server’s attentiveness was less than desired. For a “premier” steakhouse - why did it take three times to get a medium rare steak correct? So sad, so over priced, so less than desired.

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.

Son wanted to visit, one last time, prior to moving to Texas. Overall experience was great, as usual. Appeared to be limited staff, causing longer than usual wait times for service.

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.
