This is an awesome restaurant, with great tasting food and very attentive staff. Steaks were cooked perfectly! Only downside was my partner's salmon was under cooked in the middle, but she didn't anyone. Their food is high quality and the prices reflect this, which would be fine if all their entrees came with sides.

Our dining experience in Columbus exceeded our expectations. As we celebrated my wife’s birthday, she and I both felt pampered and well attended to in a manner that avoided infringing on our intimacy together. The Service and Food was worth the money.

We had a nice time service was slow but we all thought she was given too much to do. Not all meals were good. We are a group of women that eat out at least 5 nights a week . Your restaurant is too much for what u offer and they don’t like to make any changes to the menu. We don’t plan to return .

Excellent food. Great table-side service. While a bit pricey, they really do make a special evening. I was surprised at the noise level. Pretty energetic for sure. It was a Friday.

The meal was delicious, and the service was great. We went for my fiance’s Birthday and they left us a birthday card on our table signed by a bunch of the employees, and also gave us a free cream brûlée for dessert. We split the filet mignon dumplings and they were delicious. The Brussels sprout side dish was big enough for both of us to split, and the bison filets were delicious and perfectly cooked. It’s definitely on the pricier side, so not something we’d do a lot, but it was worth it for a celebration.

Every meal at Eddie Merlot in CMH is fantastic. Last Friday, we took my husband's parents here for dinner and it was again, SPECTACULAR. My FIL is pretty particular about his food and drink and EM killed both perfectly. He likes his vodkas in certain ways and both were perfect. We loved the ambiance and loved our meals. Thomas our wait staff, again was perfect as always. Never had a bad meal here nor bad service. It's my absolute favorite here in town and I'm totally biased....we were married last July 2, 2018 and admittedly, another establishment cancelled our party dinner reservations six hours before our dinner that day. I was horrified. I called the GM shaking asking if and how they could accommodate a party of 10 for dinner celebrating our wedding. I was told it depended on the day. When I told him what happened to us on the day of our wedding and we were scrambling he simply said, "We'll see you this evening." No other questions asked. I'll never, ever, ever forget this royal treatment. Eddie Merlot Columbus is the best within the Eddie Merlot family and head and shoulders above their competitors in town.

This was our second visit to Eddie Merlot’s. We were there for a few significant celebrations—-a 20th anniversary, a 65th birthday, and a retirement. Our experience was top notch! Our server, Mike, was a game changer on the night. From the wine suggestions and tastings to his perfect timing all night, he and his team were phenomenal.
We had a drinks with our appetizers, French onion soup, charbroiled oysters, and the spinach salad. During appetizers, Mike had a bottle of Clark and Telephone Pinot Noir opened to breathe before our meal. For dinner we had two bone in ribeyes, Filet Del Mar, and and the filet trio. Sides were creamed spinach, Scalloped Potatoes, and Brussels Sprouts. Other than the creamed spinach being a bit short on spinach, everything tasted fantastic. We were given two orders is creme brûlée for the celebrations. We ordered the beignet as well. That was a definite highlight of the meal! French press coffee rounded out the meal. We are so glad we chose Eddie Merlot for the evening. Thanks to Mike and his team for a wonderful meal and experience!

One of us got the “Make a Wish” donation Eddie burger. The taste of that was just OK. The other one of us got the newly redesigned scallops. They were delicious. The French press coffee was fantastic.

Everything was wonderful. Only thing I would suggest is that for groups, the server might ask how to divide up the checks when a large format wine bottle is ordered. It can be a bit pricey to pay for one of those bottles for the whole table.

But everything was absolutely delicious and the server was fantastic. The candied bacon appetizer was so good--we might go pick up a to-go order just for that! ;-)

This was my second visit. Both times the wait staff didn't perform in alignment with pricing or food quality. This time we were sitting at a table in the open area where there are no obstructions for proper service. Staff frequently reach over people and plates to deliver or retrieve items. I'm no stickler for which side service must come from, but when not seated in a booth there's no excuse for reaching over customers and their plates. Our waiter also didn't check in frequently. We had purchased a bottle of wine. We ended up refilling our own glasses. For this price range, there are other options in town with better service.

We both had burgers from the special Make-A-Wish menu so Eddie Merlot's will make a donation to the local Make-A-Wish chapter. The burgers and the heirloom tomato salad and crab bisque were all delicious. Service was great a usual. We have never had a bad experience at this restaurant.

Great food, had the bone-in-filet which was prepared perfectly. Would have preferred to have it without any toppings but went with the server's recommendation. Still tasty, but not needed. Next time will try the bone-in Bison ribeye, which looked like a great option.
