Came in with three other gentlemen, we have been to quite a few steakhouses. All four of our steaks were undercooked, 3 ordered medium rare would’ve been considered near raw (black and blue) at any reputable steakhouse, the fourth steak was ordered medium well and would’ve been considered medium rear anywhere else. We’re not ones to complain so we did not raise the issue and therefore cannot say how they would’ve rectified it. However, when you’re in the seaport in Boston and your dinner tab runs you $800 for four folks you’d expect a level of quality not below those found at discount chain restaurants.

If you’re like me and question why what appears to be a higher end steakhouse has a reservation open last minute on a Saturday, don’t, it’s because this restaurant isn’t worth it.

Great food and menu selection! My only complaint were a few of the side dishes, Eddie’s potatoes were extremely oily and the broccoli was very plain. We love brussel sprouts but they were not crispy and read other reviews they weren’t very good. Beautiful restaurant and great service. Very impressed with dessert menu and table side preparation!

My buddy’s BD but EM was not our first choice, but Bottom Line it was exceptional. First Class service led by Robin our server,excellent food, we had porterhouse,filet and rib-eye all expertly prepared. Sides of various potatoes and veggies equally delicious. Good wine list at price points. Can’t say enough how good it was.

This was our first time here. The place was beautiful and the food was good. The only thing was the service we ordered appetizers first salad and calamari. The waiter asked if we wanted bread we said yes. He came back saying breads not done yet. I find this a bit shocking as they opened at 5pm this was 5:15pm. They should have had the bread done earlier for dinner. We asked for extra dressing came after we finished our salad. I feel that a restaurant that is upscale the staff should be as well as ours seemed new possibly. We also had to wait for our bill. Food was great but needs a bit of help in service.

Sat at bar for meal and pretty much ignored by bartender which was surprisingly since only three others sitting at the bar.

Steak was good, sides and appetizers were bland

Food was good, but the service was subpar. The waiter took a bit to get us our food and was also sweating profusely, which was not elite. Overall 3 out of 5.

They price themselves to be a seafood place but they can’t cook calamari. The worst ever! Over cooked beyond comprehension and excessive batter.
Then we ordered bananas foster for dessert and they put out a nice show cooking them at the table. The result was a tasteless dessert.
The portions are stingy.
We will not go back again.

Decided to try this place out for Dine-out Boston and it didn’t disappoint. Compared to other steak and seafood restaurants, Eddie Merlot’s dine-out Boston menu offered a lot of choices including surf and turf without additional charges. The grilled mahi-mahi and blackened salmon were delicious and service was great! My friends and I enjoyed our dinner and we’ll definitely be back soon!

We’ve been to Eddie Merlots a few times and each time it’s been really great. We went last night for restaurant week. Menu was very good. My only negative was that our main turned up whilst we were still on our apps and at first it felt like we were being rushed. But otherwise all very good!

We did not enjoy this outing at all. Huge salad was all lettuce and cabbage.
The sorbet was a snow cone. I could go on to include the poor service, but you get the idea. Morton's and Palm far superior.

We wanted to try Eddie Merlot's and booked during Dine Out Boston. We typically don't spend $40+ on steaks! We started with a large very tasty Caesar salad, Steak Diane and Peaches and Cream for dessert. The loaf of bread they served with dinner was also wonderful. Service was impeccable and everything was so tasty and well presented. In all of my years trying out new restaurants for Dine Out/Restaurant Week, this was by far my favorite experience. Such a deal for $38 for three courses. I will return again for my next special occasion. Keep up the outstanding work!

We had problems that night. Noise level was high. It took a long time to get our main course. When my rare steak finally came it was nearly cold. I was so hungry i didn't complain. but my partner's well done was not really medium and when she asked that it be cooked more it was not much better. she didn't eat her steak. maybe an off night since i haven't been there before but no kudos for service. not really up to par. and parking is wild. you have to park in the parking lot. try finding a sign for congress street. if you are not familiar with the area bring a compass or hope someone will help you.

Went for Restaurant Week. Otherwise it could be considered pricey. The food was good, though a little to much butter. I ordered filet and the steak was cooked perfectly, but I think might have been sitting a bit as it was not hot. Otherwise everyone enjoyed.
