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.

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.

This location in Ashburn has my favorite servers of all the restaurants we go to! They remember us and welcome us back. The manager stops by to say hi too. The best staff ever.

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.

I was looking forward to Eddie Merlot’s for their cocktails and quality service. I didn’t get either one. They were out of their special bordeaux cherries. Maraschino doesn’t work in anything other than a Shirley Temple, so no Manhattan for me. Instead of going to the bar and quietly canceling the order, the wait staff yelled across the restaurant. The service continued in that rather casual vein throughout; not what I associate with a first class steakhouse. I left feeling let down and disappointed.

Last evening, we decided to splurge after a tough work week. We ordered the "Tax Week Specials" which were a 26 oz. prime porterhouse (me) & the 8oz. prime NY strip with shrimp scampi (my wife) - and were not disappointed. For sides, we had their garlic mashed potatoes and the tempura green beans with a wasabi dipping sauce. The food was plentiful, delicious, and beautifully presented. The ambience remains attractive & relaxing. Our server, Meg, was attentive, friendly, and courteous. All in all, a terrific dining experience - highly recommended!

We were called by phone 6 hours prior our reservation - we were told that they had no crescent shaped booth because someone had reserved the booth a week before us. This was unacceptable. I had called a week before to make the appointment. Why did it take almost a week to tell us a booth was not available. We almost cancelled my wife's reservation hearing this news. It was her birthday, Open Table should have caught this. Management should have caught this well ahead of time. Not an acceptable start. Bad start.

Service was slow. Appetizers arrived before our drinks. Waiter was constantly speaking to a server in Spanish about another table, multiple times during our dinner. I have had amazing waiters here before. Just not what I would expect from this caliber of restaurant.

We love this place. And will come again and again. But in full disclosure, the fillet steak tonight was a little overcooked instead of medium rare. I look for medium rare to be all the way to the edge. And it was medium center and almost well everywhere else. But it was so tasty, we didn’t turn it back. Everything else was perfect!!! The mashed potatoes, the Brussel sprouts, and the wine. And the staff took care off us as they always do.

Although the ambience is always excellent! I was very disappointed with my appetizer. It was acknowledged and I was given a free desert. Also the steaks were slightly over priced for what you get.

We enjoyed our Easter Brunch. Food was very good and our waitress was sweet.
The bartender was not as skilled with knowledge of pouring an expensive wine. Ordered a $50 glass of wine which was a six ounce pour. The waitress gladly added it was the end of the bottle so he poured out a little more. Not what we wanted to hear. He also poured all the sediment in the small carafe. She then poured the wine into our glass. My husband walked it back to the bar and had him strain the wine. He saw the sediment in the glass, washed the glass, left water at the bottom of the glass, and then tried to add the wine. We also ordered the endless Bloody Mary. I ordered one, asked for more tomato juice and that was the only one I tried to drink. Not your usual.
See you next time for dinner and will order the bottle instead to enjoy the wine.
