    Went for a birthday dinner and decided to be seated in the bar area. This was a bit more intimate than sitting in the main dining room. The noise level was insignificant and the space was very comfortable. The food was incredible and our server, Franco, was able to accommodate special requests. Franco offered the perfect balance between attentiveness and privacy. Overall the experience was exceptional and would return anytime for special events or even a break from the ordinary.

    My wife and I come to Eddie Merlot's every year for our birthdays. We love the steaks around the world. We split a grilled romaine salad. My wife had the Argentina chimichurri steak and shrimp. I was skeptical about the chimichurri but it was awesome. I had the Italy bistecche alla palermitana. It was very good. We both had the wine that was suggested with meals. They were not our regular types but nothing to complain about. We had a great meal.

    We dine at Eddie's monthly and, unfortunately, when we came last night for our son's birthday, we were disappointed in some of our food. The calamari had very thick batter and was tasteless. The Crab bisque is usually amazing but again, bland. The 2 steaks we got were great. The Eddie's potatoes were undercooked. It was nice that our server brought our son a complimentary dessert for his birthday. We will likely be back but really hope the food is as good as it usually is as if it's not we will take our monthly fine dining elsewhere. It's too expensive for these problems.

    Food was all very good, chef does nice job, had sea bass, lobster, chopped salad, filet potstickers, carrot cake. Prices reasonable against other restaurants at this level which was good. Server was very nice but service professionalism not at level expected at top rated steak house, bit rushed. Cocktails just ok, whiskey drinks at top restaurant for example should never have a maraschino cherry, use the standard luxardo premium guests expect. We arrived early and were promptly seated which was nice. Could have been seated in nicer area of restaurant to improve atmosphere as space was available.

    My family and I had a wonderful time at Eddie Merlot's last night. From the moment we walked in, the service was excellent and our food was very tasty. Our waitress, Stacy, was very personable, professional, and did a superb job. We look forward to returning soon.

    Nice atmosphere and service was good. Was not the best steak we ever had, ribeye was chewy- more like a sirloin. My filet was good though. We might consider going back to try something else someday.

    Overall service was horrible! We were hoping to celebrate an exceptional occasion, our 56th wedding anniversary, at an exceptional restaurant. Eddie Merlot’s was not the place. Soup was served before we received our drinks or placed our main order. We did final get our bread… just as we finished our main course. I should also mention this was a Sunday evening with only minimal customers in the restaurant. We spent one hour and 43 minutes for dinner; just dinner, no coffee, no dessert, no after dinner drinks.

    This restaurant was recommended to us by a close family friend. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and my birthday. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and seated promptly. Our server was very warm, energetic and informative and made sure that our experience was great, checking on us throughout our visit. Our meal was outstanding. My husband loved the sea bass and I love the salmon. We will definitely make this an annual outing for our anniversary, and more. We will also bring others with us and tell others our great our experience was.

    Absolutely perfection in every way! Staff was amazing, food was outstanding. We were celebrating our son's last meal before US Navy basic and the staff congratulated him (like they knew him). I know you're wondering what he picked as his last meal...ribeye steak! He said it was better than the one he had at Ocean Club the night prior. Hat off to the chef! The chocolate cake is a MUST!
