    We had a girls dinner - two adults with 2 nine year old girls. Our server was so impressed with the girls manners that he gave us a free dessert. Beyond that, he was just so kind and engaging with them - treating them like little adults. The food was amazing - We all left so full but we definitely wanted to eat everything on our plate. The steak was perfectly seasoned and the sea bass melted like butter in your mouth! I would totally go back!!!

    The best service in town. From hello greetings to good byes, the experience couldn’t be more delightful. Looking for a nice evening away from the noise of the seaport (without actually leaving), this your spot. The music is calm and relaxing, the service is excellent, the food is always delicious and try the desert if you have room. If you love seafood and or steak, this is your place, both are fine well and every side dish is delicious. 💕 My suggestion, get a table on the bar side.

Our Server had a great rapport and sharp wit! We greatly enjoyed our time at Eddie Merlot's. Dinner was as ordered, hot and delicious. Cannot wait to go back. Thank you to all the staff who work so hard to make this a great dining experience.

    CJ was very attentive as our waiter. We had inquired whether we could share our salad order and it was served on two separate platters. The tempura calamari was good but we would have preferred the regular fried calamari. The choice of three different dipping sauces was an unexpected surprise.

    My birthday lunch am here yesterday, 6/19, was nothing short of fabulous! My family enjoyed filet mignon, ribeye, shrimp and scallops, and lobster tail. Each prepared to perfection. The cheese and charcuterie tray was really done nicely - and the honey was the perfect pairing. Filet mignon potstickers were scrumptious - consistently unbelievable. Camilo provided superb service. We will be back again.

    We should have been tipped off by all the open reservation slots on a Friday evening - never a good sign. While the restaurant was lovely, the food was absolutely awful. My husband and I decided to go with the prix fixe summertime grill menu, and while the Caesar salads were large and fresh, my lemon Dijon chicken was inedibly bad. It was horribly over salted, and the consistency of the chicken was repulsive - rubbery yet slimy all at once - truly terrible. My husband’s 10oz filet was decent, but also absurdly overly salted. The chocolate cake, while enormous, was the worst cake I’ve ever tasted. Artificial, artificial, artificial - you’d truly be better off eating a pre-packaged slice of cake from a deli. Our server was pleasant, but not particularly competent or on top of things. I literally just ordered dinner on DoorDash to make up for this inedibly horrid meal.

    We were deciding which steakhouse to visit in the Seaport District and decided on Eddie Merlot’s based on our interest in their chopped salad offering. It is an easy walk over from the Seaport Hotel and we were greeted by the hostess just after the end of the bar area. Server was friendly, helpful and efficient. Pace was steady with drinks, apps, salads, wine, entrees, dessert all flowing over the course of 2 hours. Beyond the chopped salad which was delicious and not too huge, we chose the barbecued shrimp, porterhouse for 2, asparagus, chocolate cake and crème brûlée. The large shrimp were wrapped with bacon, and a thicker bbq sauce. No surprises here, sweet, tangy and salty goodness. Steak was cooked medium-rare plus, which the kitchen nailed on the filet side but was just a bit much for the ribeye. That bone-in flavor melded nicely with the butter/shallot/herb and garlic sauce that it was cooked in. Tender and rich. The low note of the night was the Chocolate cake. Dry, dry, dry. they quickly replaced it with a creamy and large crème brûlée. Yum! We enjoyed this more than our visit to Morton’s last time we were in town. Need to try Ocean Prime next. Though Grill 23 is still our favorite steakhouse in town, we’ll be back here when we’re staying in Seaport District

    Well, I’m in the service industry..and when I sit at a table, the first thing is to ask what kind of water and which he did but never followed through. We had appetizers on the table with no water nor bread .. I feel like when your spending 300.00 a couple. The service should be outstanding. I believe it’s not the waiter fault I believe it’s the management fault for not training properly The food was excellent though

    Superb evening in an intimate setting that allowed us to celebrate our special occasion! I started with a classic martini to cleanse my palate, which was executed to near perfection. The Maryland crab cakes transported my senses to the shores of the Chesapeake in a memory that could only be invoked with such sumptuous cuisine. I opted for the generous ribeye paired with a 2020 Daou Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon...!absolutely sublime!

    This placed might as well be called Eddie Murphys because it’s a complete joke. The service terrible. Took 15 mins for the server to get to the table, another 20 to get our first drinks, and other 20 to get our app order in and then an hour wait for our dinner. The food was not at all the quality you would expect at this price point. Apps were frozen dinner quality and the steaks were fatty and flavorless. There’s other steakhouses in seaport that blow this one out of the water. Don’t go.

    The evening started perfectly except I wasn’t really excited about the table location. It’s probably just me but we were stuck in the back near the private room by ourselves. My wife prefers a little private corner but I like to feel the vibe of the restaurant. Our server was great initially. Water, appetizers. Very helpful and courteous. I had the crab and corn chowder, spicy shrimp and poke tuna. All three, no exaggeration, amazing. I actually enjoyed the appetizers so much I only ordered a lobster Mac and cheese for dinner. My wife had a filet and a loaded baked potato and thought both were amazing. This is where it went a bit sideways. It was obvious that our server was working the private party next to us in a private room. He did his best to stay on top of things but after he dropped dessert he literally just couldn’t handle the large group and stay attentive to the completion of our meal. I ended up having to grab another server to have him get our bill so we could pay and finish up. They were very nice and the manager credited us for a cocktail, bottled water and desserts. Nice touch for the inconvenience. Overall good experience but I could clearly see several servers with very few tables. Im just not sure why our server would take our table when he knew he had a large party to accommodate. Lastly, someone from Eddie Merlots should walk down to Ocean Prime and order the carrot cake. Im sorry but the dessert menu said “best carrot cake in the world”. Ocean Prime literally has the best I’ve ever had. This could have been an off night but I had two bites and yours was stale as a roof shingle. We will return and request a table in the main dining area. I look forward to jumping around that menu.

    There was 4 of us and we had a great meal. The shrimp wrapped in bacon was excellent. I had fish sea bass it was good. It could have been cooked a little more but that’s just my preference. My husband had the rib eye steak and he said the flavor was awesome. The brownie dessert was excellent. The parking was horrible you park in a garage and it’s very hard to find your way out. I wish they would do valet.

    we went for the Mothers day Buffet. total disappointment. the Lamb and Beef was very good and the service was excellent but everything else was not good. sides were cold and flavorless , the Chicken was a soggy mess. both Shrimp dishes were not good at all and they put out obviously frozen Restaurant Depot French Toast Sticks and Maple FLAVOR syrup!! also the Bananas in the Bananas Foster were not ripe!! tasted like rubber disks. they did not have proper Bar staff and we had to send back two terrible Cocktails! this is a PRIME STEAKHOUSE!! you should never serve the low quality products that you did. at the Price point you would figure you could make French Toast in house and have REAL MAPLE SYRUP!! if you are going to put out a Buffet spread you need to put a lot more effort than what we ate yesterday. my wife and i both agreed that if we paid $24.99 a Head at a Casino Buffet for what we got yesterday we would not go back. I paid $369.00 for three
