Another great dinner! Both the service and the food were outstanding. I had a great NY Strip that was as tender as any filet! The Tempura asparagus was the best I have ever had!

We have dined at this location many times in the past, having excellent shrimp cocktails every time. Not so fortunate this time. The shrimp cocktails were a major disappointment. First of all, the presentation has changed from awesome to lackluster. The cocktail sauce was watery and almost tasteless. Except for large hard pieces of horseradish. In the past, the cocktail sauce was excellent, probably the best I have ever had. The shrimp used to be nice-sized and always fresh. The shrimp this time were small and tasted strange and the consistency was rubbery.
Not only was the food a disappointment but the service was sub-par. Our drinks were never refilled.
I won’t be back and I can no longer recommend this restaurant to friends. There are others in Columbus that are much more consistent.

This restaurant has been in our go-to list for several years - always first class food and service. Excellent wine list; further, taking advantage of their Winey Wednesday's, you can get bottles at reduced price - great value!

For the price it really should be exceptional. It was fine. Not good enough to compete with the other excellent options in Columbus in this price range (Ocean Club, Jeff Ruby’s, and others).

Anniversary dinner with friends who share the same anniversary date. Flavorful bisque and starters, excellent filet, and a thoughtful creme brulet for dessert. Oh, and did I mention that the service from Justin and team was outstanding? First time experience and we'll be back!

Our server was ok, polite but he kept putting his hand on one of the people in our party. The attention paid to the one guest made it awkward for us all. Our medallions (4) were prepared incorrectly. The steaks were taken back back to correct to rare. This took almost 15 minutes. By that time our sides were cold and the 2 other guests had completed their meal. One guest whose full plate had to be corrected was offered a soup, salad or cocktail. He accepted the cocktail and we were not charged. The meal and service were disappointing since both come so highly recommended. We had a nice time together but I am not sure we will be back for awhile.

This was our first time to Eddie Merlot’s and it’s now our new favorite! The drinks were so good (spiced cherry mule and lemon drop) steaks were melt in your mouth amazing, the sides were delicious (Mac n cheese, loaded baked potato, Brussels sprouts) and even the bread to start. It was our anniversary and I’m pretty sure half the restaurant came over to say Happy Anniversary. So unexpected and sweet. Our server Valarie was incredible - so kind and her timing was always perfect. We made Christmas Eve reservations while we were there because we can’t wait to make this our new special occasion restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful evening out - we hadn’t been out on a date in like 6 months and it was worth the wait.
