I feel like it’s a new place, the server had no help, everything was taking way too long, however it was not a busy night.
The server was very professional and nice.
I didn’t like the music, the place is too bright.

I am highly disappointed. I was only served the appetizer in a timely manner. My entree ended up never coming out after an hour wait. I had to leave with an empty stomach. Absolutely horrible service tonight.

The appetizers made it to the table before our cocktails did. Appetizers tasted great. Maine little necks were fresh and calamari crispy with delicious dipping sauces. The steaks came out cold. This is unfortunate as we bought $384 of the Miyazaki A5 steak. It was ice cold and the fat inedible. The Australian wagyu ribeye was the only steak that came out medium rare and warm. Medallions ice cold. Filets ice cold. Sea bass cold. I'm not sure what happened during this visit. We were so looking forward to this meal.

We have another steak house entry in the market... and it's a serious player. We had a fantastic dinner here and look forward to returning.

Parking is tight in the Seaport area... no problem, park in the huge parking structure next door, validate ticket at the restaurant with a sticker... $15.

They did a fine job with the decor and tabletop. Service is attentive and management is present on the floor. Very comfortable space.... and the bar area is really nice too.

The Chow: Sweet & Spicy Shrimp... very good. Oysters Rockefeller... wife wasn't thrilled. French Onion Soup... excellent, broth a lttle on the sweet side. The star of the night... The Chateaubriand for 2... a 20 oz. center cut beef tenderloin that was perfectly cooked and sliced at the table. Ordered MED and came out more of a Med Rare... the quality was so good it didn't matter... was great! Mac & Cheese... good. Mashed Potatoes... great. Brussel Sprouts... great. The mac and the mashed were on the small side by steakhouse standards. Creme Brulee for dessert was a nice rendition.

Wine list is good.

We usually go to Morton’s but wanted to try something different. We had my family of five. We had prompt service, restaurant was clean and decorated beautifully. Our server was excellent.

We started with drinks and apps. Hubby got scotch which has the large ice cube, excellent touch. I had the Persian Lemon Drop which was unique and delicious.

We ordered app of sweet and spicy shrimp and filet mignon dumpling, very good but nothing special.

My son had the French onion soup which was outstanding.

My daughter has Caesar salad also outstanding.

Over all good but not outstanding

First time to Eddie Merlot's on a Friday night. Usual restaurant choices were booked for the day and time we needed, but based on Opentable's reviews and becuase Eddie Merlot's had plenty of availability I booked there. It was very good overall. I think they only opened a few months ago, so for now at least it seems to be a bit undiscovered, very quiet for a busy summer Friday night. But, vs the other well know Boston steakhouses I thought it matched up pretty well in terms of ambiance, food quality and service. The bread, by they way was particularly good !! I do wish they had valet parking!! Though there is a large public parking lot literally next door, but that parking lot is huge and literally may have been the most confusing parking lot I have ever tried to get out of after parking the car, and back into find our car when we came back. But, other than that, overall it was good experience and I will put it on my list of restaurants options for next time.

I love the ambiance of this place! The dining room is comfortable, yet beautiful, elegant, and spacious. I will definitely return to try more dishes. The blacken salmon was made to perfection and the caesar salad was amazing. Service was friendly and well-timed. I definitely recommend Eddie Merlot’s as the go to restaurant.

Clam chowder and French onion soup were outstanding. Wife also really enjoyed her crab cakes. The star of the meal however was the prime ribeye, perfectly cooked medium rare, and as good, if not better, than any ribeye I have ever had anywhere.

Service was non intrusive but attentive.

We were meeting family in Boston when we decided to dine at Eddie Merlot’s, it was truly amazing! This has to be the newest gem in Boston.
What an experience, from having drinks prepared by Ms Sarah to excellent 5 Star service from Ms Molly.

Everything from appetizers, dinner to desserts were truly amazing. They have an unbelievable wine selection and the carrot cake is the best that you will ever have.

My grandkids loved the chicken and fries ☺️ and our family of 10 selected various dishes, lot’s of steak dishes, and delicious sides.

Thanks to Art and Paul, the manager and GM to making our family dinner one to remember.

Cheers to the Eddie Merlot’s Team
