    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.

    Came for a family thanksgivings dinner. Upon entering I was immediately greeted by management and checked in on by name throughout the dinner. Our server was very nice and managed well despite a full house. Food took a while to come out but was very tasty. Restaurant was clean, quiet, and elegant.

    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!

    Our first visit, on Thanksgiving day. Our table was ready within a few minutes of our arrival. Our server promptly introduced herself and was attentive and timely throughout our meal. Drinks, appetizers and entrees were all excellent. The pace of service was perfect and everything was hot straight from the kitchen. All said, a great dinner in a very nice space.

    My server Erica was phenomenal. I am from out of town, attending a conference. Eating alone can be stressful, but her cheerful demeanor and helpful attitude added value to the experience. She assisted with a great wine pairing for my perfectly cooked prime ribeye. I'll return Tuesday night to try the sea bass she recommended! Dr. John R. Ash

    I was really amazed with Eddie Merlot’s. There’s this niche of upscale steakhouse (a bunch of them even within a few blocks in this neighborhood) and I was expecting good but like the rest. I was pleasantly surprised that everything was far above the average. The spinach was better than I’ve had in any steakhouse. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, and gave us a fantastic experience.

    I was dining alone and sat at the bar. The bartenders Danny and Kevan were very attentive and service was personable and on time. I had the poke for an appetizer and the shrimp and scallops entree which was amazing but I thought a bit heavy on the spicy sauce. The asparagus was ok. I would’ve much better liked a grilled or much crispy, crunchy asparagus.
