We entertained a client and his wife on Tuesday night. The food and service was excellent. The noise level was louder than I like when you are trying to hear your guests.

We've not done Easter Brunch at E.M. however, it was great! Food was plentiful and well worth the price.
Great service as always and the set-up worked pretty well. (both sides access was good and the server taking a suggestion on a condiment was welcomed also.
We like everything about Eddie Merlot's at the restaurant, we think you will also.

Our reservation was at 2:15 on Easter Sunday however, we were not seated until 2:35. The buffet was good however the mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese were very dry. The banana fosters line was very long. Our waiters were efficient. The main complaint we have is that halfway through our meal we were told the buffet would be closing down starting at 3:15. We were not aware of the buffet time when we made the reservation. After being seated 20 minutes past our reservation time, we feel we did not get enough time to enjoy our time there.

Dinner for my family of 6 including 4 sons aged 14-21. Staff service was excellent, not pretentious, all of the food choices were superb not a single incidence of food envy. Portion sizes are very healthy- we only had a few leftovers which is surprising with my family of boys. The waiter was interactive and attentive. Our first time here, we will definitely put it on our short list of go to restaurants.

Great wait staff! This was our first visit to Eddie Merlot's and we were there for a late dinner so I ordered the small sirloin, med-well. To be honest, I've had better quality, more juicy sirloin steaks at a national steak chain. Side dishes were good. Beautiful restaurant, but it was packed and noisy.

Eddie Merlot's was one of the only steakhouses I had yet to try in Columbus - I can't believe I waited so long. Everyone in our part of 8 agreed that it was the best steak we have had in a long time. The side dishes were also excellent. Other non-steak menu items looked intriguing as well so we plan on going back soon to try more things this restaurant has to offer. The service and ambiance were also great. I have only been there once so far, but would say that this could be my favorite steakhouse in Columbus.

I must compliment the chefs on the amazing meal we had. We were both impressed beyond compare. I would also like to compliment our server. He was amazing and he told us it was his first day on the floor. If he hadn't said anything we would have never known. He was professional, efficient and extremely pleasant. Thank you for a phenomenal first experience. We will be back!

We have been going to Eddie Merlot's faithfully for the last 3 years at least 3 times a month. As of late, we find ourselves more and more disappointed. Kudos to the bartender Greg, who is always outstanding! When we sit at the bar and have a glass of wine and order off of the bar menu, we are very satisfied. When we are seated in the bar at a table, we find the service lacking. If we sit in the main dining area, we usually get good service. For the price of the food, we expect better service and outstanding food. Lately it's been a "hit or miss" situation.

service was outstanding as always. Steaks were excellent. Pork Chops were not terribly special although the bbq sauce it's served with (and also served on the BBQ shrimp appetizer) was unique and very tasty. BBQ Shrimp appetizer was OK but seemed a bit overcooked. All sides were very good with one exception: Beef Carpaccio had an overly mushy texture. It was odd to say the least. We've enjoyed this dish at many other establishments but something was off with this version. Nothing was a deal breaker but with such high pricing my expectations go up substantially. And it's worth noting that I've had several excellent dinner experiences prior with this Eddie Merlot.

We have visited Eddie's many times and, as always, this visit did not disappoint. As we entered the reception area both Scott and Frank welcomed us. We had the King Crab dinner Easter special. Christopher, our server, highly recommended a bottle of Mirabeau Rose to accompany the crab. It was the perfect paring and we appreciated his expertise. The calamari was tender and the creamed corn with jalapeno had just the correct amount of heat. The moist tasty carrot cake is large enough to share with numerous folks at the table.

As a recommendation, I suggest the butter for the crab be brought to the table earlier to allow it time to fully melt or the warmers be filled with melted butter then served. It took awhile for the butter to melt in the warmers as the crab cooled. Same minor issue on some previous occasions.

A wonderful evening was had by all. See you soon!

Service and atmosphere are great. I ordered swordfish which was over cooked and had a hair on the plate. My husband had the all you can eat king crab legs and those were over cooked as well. I have eaten here in the past and always ordered steak which I have been very pleased with.
