My wife and I loved our dinner there. We loved being seated in a nice booth but just for the two of us. We enjoyed every single thing we ate. Our service was superb. I believe our server’s name was Paul, and he was just great. What a wonderful evening. We cannot wait to come back.

I’ve had steak from a few award winning restaurants throughout the years. However, Eddie Merlot’s beats them all. The steak literally melted in my mouth. The flavor was incredible. I started dinner with a lobster bisque and it was amazing. My husband and I finished our dinner with the carrot cake...one word: PHENOMENAL. We enjoyed everything about our experience, from the ambiance, our wonderful server, the wine, and the food. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to enjoy fine dining. We will certainly be back!

Eddie Merlot's... showed up on a Sunday evening and the place was not busy (after a holiday, so suspect this played into the light crowd).

Service started off great with drinks and appetizers, but quickly went down hill from there. 45 minutes went by after our appetizers were cleared and our main courses were no where to be found - neither was out waiter.

After one of our party got up and summoned a worker we were told they were busy with a private party - horrible interaction with a customer (I don't want excuses, just fix the issue and move on).

Meals came out (sans the sides) and an offer for free deserts. Frankly, I was interested in deserts, just my sides and a refresh on my water.

Won't be back anytime soon.

This is our go to datenight restaurant but our visit the other night was the worst experience we have had there. 2 people in our party ordered the special which included steaks. One was ordered medium, the other medium rare. Both steaks came our rare, near raw and had to be taken back and cooked longer. They took care of it quickly but that's very disappointing at this type of restaurant.l especially since it wasnt busy at all. Also, we have always had servers that were better than the most recent. For the high prices, we expect better.

I’ve always enjoyed dining at this place, but my visit in July was great. The food was amazing, but what made it spectacular was our waiter, Jake. Jake is truly the definition of customer service. As a manager in a hospital, I know a good experience when I experience one. He’s entertaining, professional; he brought us happy anniversary card once he learned we were celebrating our anniversary and provided us with a desert, and it was my favorite too; creme brule. Eddie Melot should be proud of Jake’s work ethics. We gave more than 20% tip because deserved it. Hands down! Thanks Jake.

I had a family birthday dinner for my wife and granddaughter. We had a total of 10. I had requested to not be in the main dining room since I had 2 children. We were accommodated and Josh our server was excellent . I could not had been more pleased. Hats off to Eddie Merlots and our server Josh. Everyone had a great time.

Always great. Special occasion birthday, you can’t go wrong. Excellent ribeye, done perfectly. Wife’s filet Oscar was perfect as well. Jeff, our waiter was present but we could have done with out the constant “ you got it “ and the singing. Otherwise he was knowledgeable and friendly. Scalloped potatoes were really well prepared.
Thanks for a great meal.

I was shocked that we have been going since the place opened and also put a note about my birthday, but no one wished me happy birthday. We got a bar table as requested. The salad was good, our waitress was really good.....but the steak was torched. Our friends joined us and her first 4 oz filet was way over cooked and our ribeye was black and torched. I could only eat one piece and we had to cut around to eat some of the meat. Figured with both steaks being way over cooked.....we had no luck. For a $200 dinner and the place specializes in steaks....how does this happen. Came for my birthday and was not happy at all. Hope u find a better steak specialist as it has been bad the last few time we have been there. What is up? Should we find another restaurant????

It was actually the first time ever at EM the experience was not outstanding We came for my sons birthday. The pork chop was actually cool on the inside and not anywhere close to medium well. They took it back and my family went ahead with their dinner. The pork chop came back as it should have been the first time around minus the peaches. They apologized but if I am going to spend $150 on dinner for 3 I actually want to have dinner together.... not separately. The apology seemed genuine but the cool pork chop was just too bad to ignore. Expected more from them.

Our server, Jeff, went beyond the call of duty to ensure our birthday celebration was memorable! Plus, he did such a great job describing the steaks that this mostly vegetarian changed her order after hearing his pitch. (And the steak did not disappoint).

I come here 10-15 times a year. About 10 for work and 5 with the wife. Started off like all my great experiences in the lounge. All down hill from there. I realize it was late on Father’s Day but the 2 servers assigned to us had zero communication. Not sure if it was slow because we were the only 2 top and didn’t feel we needed anything or they just didn’t talk to each other. We waited for EVERYTHING. One of them was always checking on it. They knew it as slow because they kept apologizing for each other for the 2-1/2 hours it took to get 2 thru dinner. Food was awesome as usual.

Water from the air conditioning was dripping on my husband and we were there for fathers day. No compensation for this such as a free dessert or something. Food is extremely expensive and not . Dining takes extremely long.
