    Came here for my sisters birthday with just a few of her friends. The experience was amazing! Our waiter Oscar was very attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu and made sure to note the food allergy that one of the guest had. He made sure that our food was to our liking before walking away and was always available if we had a question or needed something. The food was absolutely incredible. Appetizers were delicious and not overpowering before dinner. Everyone that ordered a steak had theirs cooked to perfection and the flavor was just so mouth watering. Then dessert was very exciting! We ordered the banana foster and there was a whole presentation and was cooked right in front of it! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for a birthday dinner or date night or even just for a nice night out!!

    Our server Keven made my fiancés birthday more than amazing. Along with his attention to detail and knowledge made our first experience dining at Eddie Merlot’s perfect. The food quality and portions were some of the best we have had at any high end restaurants, especially in the seaport. We cannot wait to dine here again and tell everyone about it!

    We had a cocktail at the bar before dinner. They have a great selection of craft cocktails, with a bartender who will customize to your liking. I had the perfect Lemon drop. The oysters are best, charbroiled was my favorite. At our table, service was attentive, making us feel that we were his most important customer and his wine selection was great. And of course, the steaks were fantastic!

    Eddie Merlots Boston, you just earned a new regular. Friendly and professional staff, espectacular restaurant, amazing food. We tried the salmon and my friend had the New York with a side of Eddie’s potatoes and it was delicious to say the least. Can’t wait until my next excuse to try another blueberry mojito. Despite other reviews regarding “heat” most other comments agree with me! Thank you Eddie’s team to make us feel VIP at all times during our visit.

    We had Christmas dinner reservations at the bar for 8pm. We were greeted at the door and sat at the bar, which was filthy. Our counter in front of us was not even clean. Food was a bit cool, most likely sat somewhere before being brought to us, and when we were finished, our plates and empty glasses were never cleared, even though we still had drinks. The counter was still a complete mess and our plates had still not been cleared when we received our check. Very disappointing.

    DO NOT VISIT ON A HOLIDAY!!! This is my second time visiting Eddie Merlot and unfortunantly I wouldn't return. We tried to be understanding because it was Christmas but the service was just awful. My family was seated at 6:15pm in the back left side of the restaurant because we had friends seated in the same area. We waited over 20 minutes without being addressed. Then it took 40 minutes just to get water. Every table in the back room waited extremely long for our dinner. One table got their protein and no sides. My friends meals came out cold after ours when they had been seated since 6pm. For the most part we liked our food. Steaks were cooked at the right temperature and the sides were enjoyable. All except the dry flavorless mac n cheese. The cocktails lacked garnish. Also their heating system was broken so most of the patrons in the restaurant dined with their winter coats on. It would have been nice to be told this in advance so people could decided if they would like to reschedule. Really sad because I convinced my dad to try somewhere different. This was nothing like my first experience.

    Worst service I have ever experienced. Restaurants heating was not working . Literally everyone in restaurant was eating dinner with coats on. The restaurant has been aware of the heating issue for 3 days according to the restaurant manager . I would expect this information should be disclosed to there customers prior to arrival . I had a-reservation for 8 that I scheduled weeks in advanced. The manager did try and provide guest space heaters but the circuit breakers kept tripping not allowing for space heaters to work. Horrible service from the hostess , waiter . Manager and establishment. Eddie Merlots should be embarrassed and held accountable.

    Being locals, we went here for the first time Christmas Eve and it was by far the worst dining experience ever. The heating system failed early in the day, and management failed to call guests with reservations. It was so cold, we, and most all guests ate dinner with our coats on. Management was very laid back, and had a somewhat “cold” attititude towards guests who questioned things. They did not offer complimentary anything, or offer to discount our dinner. One reason we selected Eddie’s for dinner was for the carrot cake dessert, but it was too cold and uncomfortable to even have dessert.

    My wife’s filet with a Gorgonzola bacon topping was very good. I ordered a trio of filet medallions at medium temp. They were served two well done and one rare. They turned around a new plate in ten minutes with the temp perfect. The medallions were too salty (and I like salt) but good overall. French onion soup was very good. Had to ask for bread. Ran out of water and it took ten minutes to find someone to ask for more. Ran out of water a second time. It took about an hour for the entrees to be served from the time of order. Lemon drop and New Fashioned cocktails were excellent. The waitress was pleasant but service was far too slow. We were offered a dessert menu but at that point we were 1 hr 50 mins in and needed to leave. They did comp two soups because of the entree snafu. They may be short staffed or maybe it was an off night but it was a bit disappointing for us.

    Food was absolutely wonderful! The spinach and artichoke dip is definitely one of the best me and my boyfriend have had. The steak had great flavor and I love how the sides are big enough to share for two people. Also Cj was an excellent host, always checking in and making sure everything was up to par. Lastly the crème brûlée was lovely and given as a gift for our special occasion which I found very thoughtful. Overall 10/10 experience.

    There were two us. We ate at the bar. (I liked being able to make reservations at the bar.). The bartenders were knowledgeable and very friendly. We had dinner before the Boston Pops. Everything we had was very good. I especially enjoyed the chopped salad. Just enough so I didn’t ruin my appetite for the yellowfin tuna which was very very good. Sushi grade. And plenty of food. My husband had the NY sirloin. Bigger potion. (16oz?). It was HUGE. very very good. One of the bartenders made me 2 espresso martinis. Phenomenal - but filling! No dessert needed. Fantastic dinner.

    We went for Thanksgiving dinner making the reservation indicating the same as you needed to select the option and when we arrived, after ordering, they told us they were running out of stuffing and also some typical dudes like mashed potatoes which isn’t acceptable as they should know better who will be eating the Thanksgiving menu. In addition, service was extremely slow (we were like 45 min dotted until just the drinks arrived…) and a bit rude. Don’t think we will repeat this place ever again.

    I will start by saying this was the worst dining experience our family has ever had in Boston. My family and I eat out in restaurants a lot and we are very patient when it comes to service and quality as we come from years in the restaurant industry, both front & back of the house. We made a reservation for 5:30pm on Thanksgiving. Half our party was there at 5pm and checked in with the host who asked if they wanted to sit. They said they would wait for the rest of us and we arrived at 5:35pm. We checked in with the host and was told they would come get us at the bar when our table was ready. What? We made a reservation and the table seemed ready at 5...but whatever, we just waited. We checked in again about 15 minutes later and overheard one host say to the other "I can't go there, people are already at that table." So they must have made a mistake in seating. Again, not a huge deal. They finally sat us just after 6pm. The server came over and was rushing us to start ordering food, even before he got our drinks. We waited a while for drinks and it just got worse from there. We were waiting at every step for long periods of time. The server had a bad attitude and started blaming the bar and food runners for the service issues. Then our food came out. Mine was cold. We order mashed potatoes and got sweet potatoes and were told they ran out of the regular ones so he subbed the sweet without telling us. The restaurant was not full at any point of the night and the service kept getting worse. We also noticed another table complaining about the same issues. Getting dessert was a disaster. Then the bill came. They added a 20% gratuity for a party of 6 with no warning. We called the manager over and was told the server could request that for parties of 6 or more. We are always big tippers with 20% being our minimum, but this server was awful as was the managers response. They did take the gratuity off so we could decide on it ourselves. Needless to say we'll NEVER go back!
