We took our friends to dinner at Eddie Merlot's to celebrate their anniversary. The staff made it clear (in a subtle but special way) that it was a special occasion. The waitstaff was attentive, informative, and helpful, without being intrusive. The appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts were all perfectly prepared and presented. The whole experience helped to make a special event be more memorable. Highly recommended!!

Food and service consistently good. Nice upscale atmosphere, not too noisy but comfortable. Food and cocktails not inexpensive but not out of line with other area steakhouses of similar quality. Has nice perks like anniversary gift cards for members.

Excellent food and service! Prices are too high even considering the high quality (especially alcohol prices.)

Jon is a grade server - very fun.

The live music needs to go, though. It ruins the vibe/atmosphere, it’s too loud, and it’s not very good. It’s not a coffeehouse.... how about a piano player to add to the lounge feel?

This was Easter brunch. Our server was outstanding! So positive and energetic. The lamb rack, tenderloin and the shrimp scampi - YUM! Sides were outstanding too. It’s kind of pricy but the attention by staff and the food quality makes it worth it.

Easter Brunch was the occasion. The restaurant provided a bruch and dinner buffet. The chicken dishes were cold on the dinner buffet and the early batches of bacon seemed undercooked in the brunch selections.

Eddie M has a very well put together wine list and a very high quality beef available. Combined with the consistency of a family owned restaurant, it’s the best steak place in Bloomfield / Birmingham

We have eaten here several times before. We booked a 7:45 reservation on Open Table and arrived about 20 ahead of time. The place was very busy and they told us they were running about 30 minutes behind. We went to the very crowded bar and ordered drinks and after a half hour we ordered appetizers. After an hour we decided to leave but they said our table was being prepared. We were finally seated over an hour after our reservation time. That alone would normally result in us not coming back.

From then on everything was good. Not stellar but good. It seemed like everything took a little longer than it should. We ordered a platinum cuts platter which included a 32 oz tomahawk ribeye, a 20 oz Wagyu NY strip and a 7 oz wylarah filet for $279. It didn't taste any different to me than any other steaks of the same cut and three of us ate every bite and no one was stuffed. It certainly didn't seem like as much meat as it should have been. If I had to do it over I would have simply ordered a regular ribeye. It was a nice meal but there are better places around so I don't think I'll be going back.

We waited 45 mins for a table when we had reservations. The manger finally got us seated and sent a appetizer on the House. Our waiter Michael was great! He was always there checking on us. Great service. My steak was burned. They were very apologetic. Great night overall.

Service was not good. There was a long wait for everyone in the restaurant at the time. One couple felt enraged because they had to wait like everyone else. Although I had a reservation and ordered my food, the manager and staff felt they were more important than everyone else and gave them free drinks and moved their order up in front of mine. I was shocked and disturbed that their food was brought out 25 minutes before mine. It took almost 3 hours to get my food. I was told to order a certain wine with dinner and then the server came back and notified me that they were out. Probably gave the last of it to the more important couple. Obviously if you know someone here, you will get great service. But for the common folk, you get pushed to the back of the line.

Dan was our server! He was amazing! He recognized it was our anniversary and made us feel very special! We shared the Chateaubriand. It was prepared medium. He did table side service to bring mine up to medium well! He treated us to a creme brulee with Happy Anniversary stenciled on the plate. Such a nice unexpected touch! The food was amazing, but we will definitely return and have Dan take care of us. It’s rare you find such perfect service!

Our server Joe was awesome, his introduction highlighted a few of there specialties and after a brief look at the menu and talking with him he made some recommendations and what to get and we all agreed, couldn't of been happier. The apps and crab and avocado salad were a great starter, and then just as we were all eagerly anticipating our entrees we saw joe turn the corner with our steaks on his carving table. He sliced and plated everything and told us what each cut was and how they differed, the waygu filet was the winner for our group, so tender it almost dissolved in your mouth.

The manager Matthew visited our table and after a brief talk about wine suggested a Malbec to pair with dinner, and at $65 it was easy to justify getting a 2nd bottle. With four courses and coffee the dinner took around 2.5 hours, a fact our 8 yr old noted more then once, next time we'll get a babysitter cause we will be back.

We wanted to try the restaurant for our anniversary. Our waitress greeted us with an entire story about the restaurant and insisted on going over the entire menu even though we had already made up our mind. The prices were higher than most comparable ones in the area. They even had been from Australia that had been massaged! I would rather spend the money on a massage for me and pay less for the beef. We were not overly impressed and probably won't go back. The carrot cake was very good.
