    Mediocre food for the money. Our waiter was awful. Not friendly, never introduced himself, we waited 20 minutes for drinks after order taken. My salmon was very dry, my friends steak was not cooked as ordered. Won’t be back. Underwhelmed.

    Ana is an amazing server. She did a great job. The food was very good. The noise level was so loud that it was painful. It greatly diminished the experience of eating there to have the noise so loud that I cannot hear the table mates.

    Our waitress, Ana, was wonderful. She reminded us of our $25 wedding anniversary reward. Thanks, Ana. My grilled romaine was terrific. Husband's crab cakes were okay, but he really doesn't like the remoulade sauce so next time will either ask for a tarter sauce or half lemon to use. His filet mignon pot stickers were great. My filet mignon absolutely fabulous and we had it this morning for steak and eggs.

    No complaints on anything except one.. The bacon spinach is a tad too salty because of the bacon. I’ve had spinach & bacon before but this was too salty for my taste, overall it’s still a good dish otherwise. The food and service is definitely top notch. I loved it.

    We've visited Burr Ridge location many, many times & hosted our son/d-i-l baby shower in the Chardonnay Room. Food for our meal on Saturday, 9/17/22 was very disappointing. Four oz filet looked miniscule and odd shaped, especially served on a large oval platter. Filet De Mar cooked perfectly, but crabmeat sauce very bland and weak (we've had this many times), 4 shrimp felt "tossed on top/side". Salmon for two guests just ok. Not looking for heavy seasoning for a quick fix, but what happened? Carrot cake dessert was enough for 3-4 people, approximately 4"x4"x4" in size and wonderful! Three of seven in our party were senior citizens - why the hostess sat our group at such a poorly lit table was lacking common sense. Kevin, our server, for mom's 84th birthday dinner for 7, was perfect and saved the day. He was in tune with our group, timing our meal and follow-up. We're taking a pass on Eddie Merlots for a while, perhaps revisit when their fall/winter menu is released.

    Our 2nd time dining w George & he does a great job. Everything was yummy but not quite as good as last time. Just a touch too salty on my bison filet and a slightly over cooked strip. Don’t get me wrong, no complaints!

    But all experience was very disappointing. Seafood was overcooked and extremely salty, salad was overdressed. Price was excessive for the quality of the food. $6 for club soda That I had to ask to be refilled and $45 for overcooked salty seafood Was very Disappointing. I don't mind paying for a good meal but for those prices the food and service should have been excellent

    Have been to Eddie Merlot many times. This is the first time that the soup I ordered came with the main course rather than before the main course is served. We have been to many restaurants and the soup or salad is always served first before the main course. If soup is served with main course, the main course and side dishes gets cold!

    We had higher expectations and we were dissapointed. Calamari were too oily and food overall was mediocre. However, the most dissapointing issue was that my husband ordered a wagyu steak and received a regular filet mignon. Even though the chef gave a discount, it is unlikely that we'll return.
