Valentines day. We share many special occasions at Eddie Merlot’s which is one of our favorite places. We visit several times per year.
Celebrated 20th Anniversary.
If you want to go to a restaurant where you are paying for the name and service only, this is the place to go. The food is nothing to rave about.
I took my wife here for a Valentine’s day dinner date and reserved for 8:30pm. We were seated after about a 30-minute wait. There were still other people ahead of us but we found out only after approaching the hostess that they erroneously gave our seat to another couple. We were hoping they’d give something complimentary because of the mix up but they didn’t offer. We just enjoyed the evening and did not want this to spoil the dinner. The chips and dip was really good. The arctic char and shrimp was a tad salty while the vegetarian pasta was on point and very delicious.
Went there for Valentines Day. Reservation for 8:15, sat at 8:45. First greet from server was 8:55. Appetizer was delicious, salad was excellent, ordered steak- strip was undercooked and ribeye was gristly
We were there for valentines.Our server Kirk was terrible. There was a table next to us and they ordered lots of drinks and promised him a good tip & that is were he put all of his focus. We waited a long time before he even acknowledged us. When he finally came over to us, we ordered a beverage and a soup and salad. He took our menu before we placed our order. We had to ask for more water, he never refilled my tea. He was holding hands with those people. He never took his eyes off them and ignored his other tables, he was the worse server I ever had. Customers should not be treated according to their liquor consumption, we got better service from the young guy clearing tables. I reported Kirk to a manger when leaving. We dine here often, I have booked numerous business dinners and several Christmas company private events here. He cost your restaurant a lot of future dollars.
We had a reservation at 7:45 for Valentines Day. We didn't get in until 8:15. there was a very loud table near us and the waiter was playing up to the people so it was noisier. We had the New Orleans Grill. The fillet was minute, BUT med. rare as we requested. the shrimp were overcooked and tough. My salad and my husband's steak tartar were good. We asks to split a bowl of ice cream for dessert as we just wanted a little something sweet. I don't know if the waiter thought it was not enough or whatever but he just kind of slung it on the table . He was very nice earlier in the evening but seemed grumpy at the end. All in all it wasn't a pleasant experience. We have eaten at Eddie Merlot's many times before and have never had this experience.
Nice place with good food very very enjoyable time
We shared the Tomahawk and it was phenomenal. Everything was perfect, fun staff with great service!
Good as usual.
Celebrated Valentine Day at Eddie's Cincy. The Arctic Char was great; in fact suggest replacing the Sea Bass with this. Still miss the meatloaf, green beans, and cheesecake AND our favorite server, Dave.
What a great staff and superb food
Absolutely will be back
My wife and I dined here on Valentines Day. This was our 4th visit in the last 6 months, so we really like Eddie Merlots. Even though it was Valentines Day and they were very busy,everything went smooth. They had plenty of staff to cover a busy evening. The kitchen was ready for the rush and served excellent food in a timely manner. The service was pleasant,professional and not at all rushed. We very much enjoyed our visit.
It was Valentines Day and my girlfriends 60th birthday. She is Russian and the 60th birthday is a big thing for her. I decided to take her to a really nice restaurant that she would enjoy. She was very, very happy with the entire experience.
Excellent food and service as usual

Great atmosphere and food. Our waiter Mark was excellent
Early valentines dinner !!
Mark always takes good care of us !!
Eddie Merlot’s has been one of our go to restaurants to have a nice evening out. Good steak, impressive wine list, exceptional wait staff. I’m not sure how a restaurant of this caliber can’t cook a proper steak? My husband ordered medium plus, just pink in the center. The steak was bleeding onto the plate. The waitress was clueless (most can see just upon observation that it wasn’t done properly). We opted not to complain and just took it home where I “cooked” it the next day for my son. On a positive note, the toppings were great! We also noted many changes to the menu. One, the Lobster bisque has been replaced with crab and corn chowder! No thanks. Overall, a rather disappointing night out .
