Felt the food was extremely over priced for the quality. More expensive than restaurants in the city and not near as good of quality. Bad experience over all.

This is the best steak we have ever had. The staff is extremely friendly. This is a great place for a date night or to celebrate something special.

Love the food and atmosphere, particularly in the bar area which is which is less formal while being stylish and more sophisticated. Two of their servers, Bruce and Geoff, make dinning in their Birr Ridge location, particularly satisfying. Always a great time when eating there.

Geoff was our server and he was excellent. We started with the romaine Waldorf salad. Our entree was the new scallop dish. Once again we had an enjoyable meal.

Great dinner. We ordered duck two ways and ahi Tuna with crab bisque. The pressed french coffee and banana beignet was a good desert. I also enjoyed golden margaritas

Same excellent service, food was delicious, got for the first time the bison fillet mignon, perfectly cooked, tuna steak was also perfect. I will highly recommend the Berry White cocktail. Nice touch with a dessert on the house for our weeding anniversary. We will go back.

Very slow to be seated in an empty restaurant and then we asked for a quiet table and the hostess seated a table nearby with children.
The entrees were very slow to come to the table.
First time I can say I was disappointed with an Eddie Merlot restaurant

Eddie Merlot has been a long time favorite but this visit was very disappointing. Server was scarce. And when he was available assured me a particular menu item which I ordered to go in addition to our meal was not spicy hot when it was. He implied there was no heat whatsoever which was not true. Threw the food out. Very disappointing.

Eddie Merlot really dropped the ball this time. The food was good but the service was lackluster. Our server worked very hard, but his support staff seemed to be doing this for the first time. Drink orders were mixed up, incorrect or forgotten. Baked potatoes were served cold. We had to ask for things like bread that are brought automatically. It took forever to get our bill at the end of the day with a great deal of confusion. Granted, we were a large party; But at those kinds of prices, you expect everything to be first rate. I dine here fairly regularly and this is the first time I’ve given Eddie Merlot’s a bad rating .

The food was delicious, service was great, ambiance was excellent. My only complaint due to the way the ceiling was vaulted, when crowded like it was on the Saturday I went, it was very noisy and the people at my table had problems hearing each other.

Great dinner tonight with our favorite EM friends! Next time you dine there make sure you ask Ray to make bananas foster dessert for you. His secret ingredient is “the love”! ❤️

It is not a good idea to assign wait staff in two separate dining rooms. This can cause them to be out of sight for extended periods of time.

As always we enjoyed our wonderful dinner at EM’s. Our dinner, the filet with gorgonzola, was fabulous as always! We received great service from Alex, who was working her last shift. We will miss seeing her. She is a great lady and will be an asset in her new job!

Fantastic service from Bruce and the meal wes delicious! We were celebrating my husband's birthday. We had a great bottle of Argentian Malbec for half-price( they have certain bottles marked on Sunday and Monday). For our meals we chose two of the Chef's Fave's, they come with a salad and an entrée for a fixed price. We were very happy with our choices, each came with a filet and shrimp with potatoes then some additional choices - great deals!
We also had a chance to chat with Kevin, an asst. general manage, who gave us some great information about the restaurant's history.

Celebrated a friends 50th anniversary. Our waiter Ray was excellent. He allowed us time to visit and have a leisurely dinner. The food was outstanding. The table in the bar area was private and we chatted the night away. The anniversary card and dessert were above our expectations.

My cheese burger was dry, not juicy as usual and the bun seemed a little old, not fresh. Chips were great as usual
