The server named Ray provided poor service. First no food came for quite a while. Then bread and salad came. Before I could finish my salad they brought the main course and took our unfinished salad away.
My main course came cool and not warm/hot as a steak should come.
We use to get a very good meal experience at Eddie Merlots. Not so much anymore.

My husband & I had a wonderful experience sharing an intimate dinner at the Burr Ridge location. Our server, Jesus, went above and beyond. I had a question about the bill and he came back quickly and answered all our questions regarding the menu. And the food was out of the world. We will definitely be back! Thanks for a great date night!!

Jesus was our server and he was excellent. For appetizers we had the king crab and corn bisque and the Caesar salad. Our entrees were the short rib stroganoff and the seafood bouillabaisse. Both were delicious!

Wednesday has some great specials! Half price specialty drinks and half price burgers. Wagyu cheeseburger perfection. King crab flatbread just ok ... have had better. Very skimpy with crab and cheese. Perfect side to share. Rolando was very pleasant and helpful on explaining menu options.

Pleasantly surprised to find a suburban steakhouse that was comparable to our favorite city restaurants. The grilled oysters with Parmesan and lemon was a great starter. Hubby chose the waygu steak which melted in your mouth, we preferred it naked but they offer many options of sauces & toppings. I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly on a cedar plank. We ordered the wild mushrooms to share and it was very flavorful.
The creme brûlée was a perfect ending. We ordered the carrot cake to go which did not live up to the hype, overly sweet icing that overpowered the cake.

Always an excellent meal. We like to go for their happy hour bar food, but usually end up getting a couple of steaks. Great service. The water glass never gets past 3/4 full. Thanks!!!!!

Great steak and generous side portions that are meant to be shared. It’s pricey, even for a Chicago area restaurant, but it was very good.

For the last 5 years, my family has dined at Eddie Merlot's for Christmas Eve. The food is always fabulous and the ambiance of the restaurant creates a magical feeling for the evening. Service was excellent. All in all, a great experience for the holiday.

The restaurant is beautiful, our reservation was on time. The food is good, but not really great and it is pricy. With that being said I would definetly go back and recommend it to others, but warn them about the prices.

This was my first time dining at Eddie Merlot's.
I had a nice glass of sauvignon blanc in the bar before dinner, while I was waiting for my cousin to join me. We had a 5:30 reservation but were told we would have to wait momentarily for our table. It didn't take long- maybe a few minutes. We were seated near the front of the restaurant with a lovely view of the Christmas tree.
Our food took a long time to come out, but it was Christmas Eve. I thought they were probably under staffed in the kitchen. The service was pretty good. It was very busy! I ordered my steak medium rare. It came out closer to medium well. The server agreed and brought another one out very quickly. This steak was cooked acceptably. It was a 4 oz filet and it was delicious! I ordered the New Orleans Mixed Grill, which came with the filet, 4 shrimp, andouille sausage and garlic mashed potatoes. I think the sausage could have been better quality because there were some hard, inedible bits. The potatoes were delicious and the shrimp tasted good. There was also a cajun flavored sauce or gravy that was also tasty. I did not order dessert but if there is a next time, I would like to try to the crème brûlée. I was told it is always on the menu.

We mistakenly booked a high top table in the lounge and they would not change it. It was a very crowded night and therefore very noisy in the bar area. Caesar salad had way too much dressing, and my husband’s steak was not evenly cooked-overdone on one side. Waiter tried, but I think he had too many people to serve. Lots of money spent on a dinner that had some issues!

I have been here numerous times and I have never had such slow, bad service! There were plenty of servers but only one seemed to be working? The manager even came to pour my wine when it finally arrived and maybe he should have waited our table too?? Someone else should have taken over and granted there were only 2 of us, but it was pretty empty!
This was my favorite place for elegant service but I’m going to look for a new one for sure!

We had a wonderful dinner experience before Christmas! The hostesses are so sweet and friendly and greet us warmly!
We had our favorite, the 10 ounce filet with the bacon gorgonzola as a topping....it was Fantastic! Always is!!! We paired it with the baked potato with assorted toppings. This time we added a side of king crab legs...and let me say....they were amazing ! The food is always delicious. We have never had anything we didn’t like! Our server Ray is always so attentive and gracious....always putting up with my husband’s sense of humor! Lol. The manager Kevin always makes sure to come and welcome us! This place is the best! Merry Christmas EM family!
