Food is always great...however second year in a row celebrating my birthday where we experienced a large amount of coffee grounds in our coffee. Last year it was handled graciously and we were not charged for our coffee or dessert. This year no offer to comp the coffee and found out the dessert was free anyway due to birthday celebration. Other steak houses have great food so not sure we will hurry back in light of the way things were handled.

I want to like this restaurant but after our experience yesterday I doubt we will go back. It was strange... the manager seemed to constantly be looking at his phone, there we groups of servers chatting (some complaining about guests), all the while there only seemed to be two servers and busboys working the large room. While our server worked hard different things were forgotten, probably because he was one of the few running around. I just feel like for these prices you might as well go to Gibson’s and have a more polished and better food/selection experience

Brooke was our server and as always, she is an excellent server! She knows how to balance timing and getting the the food to the table! We really enjoy her! We started with a Caesar Salad and for entrees we both enjoyed the Cedar Plank Salmon. (always an excellent choice!) We also enjoyed the Creme Brûlée! We will, of course, be back!

Another exceptional dinner at our favorite restaurant!!!
Always a treat to see our EM Family and be taken care of so wonderfully! Ray does his best to spoil us despite the teasing he gets from my husband. Thanks for putting up with him Ray! Nick is always wonderful and makes sure our table is cleaned off quickly and always has some funny things to say. The other waiters, Alex and Geoff, Bobby and Bruce are always so friendly and make sure to come by to say hello. The hostesses are fabulous and always so sweet and welcoming as soon as we walk in. And, of course, Kevin and Mike are the greatest Managers around!!! You guys deserve a raise!!!! You are all special people and we love coming to EM’s, not only to eat at this fine establishment but also to visit with all the wonderful friends we have come to know!!! ❤️

A special occasion place - anniversary (our case), special birthday, perhaps engagement. Outstanding food, and very attentive service. Because we called and told them it was our anniversary, the provided a complimentary creme brule for desert.

We will definitely return, just not on a weekly basis.

This was my second time this week at Eddie Merlot's. This meal was not at all enjoyable.
It took over 1 hour to get my meal served to me. The restaurant had very few customers tonight.
The food came and was not hot. It must have been sitting on a counter waiting to be pickeds up for a while.
The bill for the meal got a mixed up.
Mike Rufo was not there and that might make a difference. When he is there things seem to be run correctly.
My server was Kris and I do not recommend his skills at providing the food on time.

I would give 3.5 stars if I could, rather than just 3. This was our second time there. The first time was a better experience in general. This time there was no energy in the restaurant. I think they forgot to put music on. And the food quality was off. Opening crab cake had shells in it. My crab and corn bisque arrived lukewarm. That said, the wedge salad was good, our creme brulee was delicious, and our steaks were cooked perfectly. Good drinks. The best part of the night was the service. Honestly, fantastic service, from the manager to our server, Mark.

It was wonderful having our dinner here on Friday night and getting to see some really fantastic people who we consider like family. The filet and lobster tail we had was delicious and melted in our mouths. A favorite of ours, is the side baked potato with all the toppings or the creamed corn. An absolute must is the crab and corn bisque....to die for! Thrilled to see Kevin and learn that he is feeling much better and back to work cause the restaurant is not the same without seeing his happy face. Our outstanding waiter Ray, once again, never disappoints us and always treats us like royalty by making our dining experience wonderful! I’m going to have to figure out a way to sneak him home so we can be spoiled everyday! Love this restaurant and the wonderful people here!

We selected the lounge area, as the chairs are very comfortable and the atmosphere is relaxed. It was a busy night, so the noise level was very high. You can order from both the Dinner and Lounge menu, so we selected the Tempura Green Beans with Wasabi Sauce and the Barbeque Shrimp, which are always delicious. The guys were impressed with the Yellowfin Tuna Steak, which was perfectly seared and rare. My friend's favorite comfort food is the Triple Prime Meatloaf, which was once again stellar. I selected the New Orleans Mixed Grill, which was also perfectly cooked. Even though it was busy, our service was fabulous. I would highly recommend.

Our table service was impeccable. We had a little bit of problem with getting seated even though I had reserved through Open Table. We waited about 10 minutes past our reservation time even though there were plenty of tables available. It was somewhat baffling.

The food was delicious...especially the coffee after the meal! Our server was very attentive and professional.

Reception was friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent ... the Dover Sole was tender and fresh with a great flavor. Wife had King Crab special which she enjoyed. Salad (wedge) was outstanding. Side of potatoes au gratin was done very well.
Service was a little spotty ... waitress was kind of aloof, entrees came before we could finish our salads.
Overall. we enjoyed our dinners and will come back again ... I want to try the steaks.
