Outstanding meal. I had the Rossini Steak which was beyond my greatest expectations.
A filet served on a bed of creamed spinach. cooked to perfection topped with Foie gras.
The steak was so tender and flavorful you could almost cut it with my fork. Also order Wild Mushroom side that was delicious as well.
Will return to try one of their other steaks

My boyfriend and so were very underwhelmed with our experience, which is very sad to say because this is not the type of restaurant you go to just because for us. Although the service was exemplary the man courses were not up to par. His crab legs were terribly over cooked, my steak was ordered medium and For filets they were very dry. His baked potato was cold, overall the meal was certainly priced like fine dining but was not up to par at all. Honestly the experience was fine, but wish we could refund the meal.

My complaint with our Anniversary Dinner at Eddie Merlot's has nothing to do with our server, or the food. That part was amazing. The problem is the table that we were seated next to. We were the unlucky couple that had to deal with a very loud and rude 8 top that let their toddler watch cartoons on a tablet at full volume. We could barely talk to each other it was so loud. They then proceeded to let him scream at the top of his lungs, and also run around the restaurant. I made mention about it twice, but unfortunately there was not much that could be done about it. Just disappointing.

Eddie Merlots has by far, some of best food and wine in Columbus. Add to that a great wait staff and a great set up so you can feel safe during the pandemic, I highly recommend a dinner at this restaurant.

Went on a Tuesday and sat at the bar. Greg and Tony are always on point. I am by no means a regular, but I was still greeted by name. Impressive. Steak was cooked to perfection and half-priced bottles of wine make it even more worth your while. Best steak joint in town.

The meal and service was excellent. However, I observed and highly concerned that ALL the African American guests were seated entirely in a separate room from the main dining area. It was so intentional that an interracial couple were also seated in this same area. I would recommend this restaurant but not to feel so segregated. It was bothersome.

ALWAYS a fabulous time at Eddie Merlot’s!!! We sat at the bar and had a wonderful evening, perfect cocktails made by Greg, and shrimp cocktail (!), delish salad, roasted Brussels sprouts, and filet cooked to perfection! It was immaculately clean (ladies room included) and felt like a normal wonderful evening at Eddie’s (pre-Covid). Bravo, Eddie Merlot! We will return soon!!!

Our 10 year anniversary fell during all you can eat crab legs. The best! Service was fantastic, the crab was HUGE, and the drinks were great. My steak was cooked perfectly and they brought back the sweet potato casserole. Highly recommend.

We dine at Eddie Merlot several times a year. It is our go to place for our special occasions. The waitstaff is always friendly and helpful. The food has always been excellent. My wife says the carrot cake is the best she has ever had. Looking forward to our next trip there.

We drove from Cleveland to celebrate 2 anniversaries and a birthday. We wanted to take advantage of the crab Friday. we couldn't have asked for a better meal. The restaurant is beautiful, the service was wonderful, and the food was great. We were also given dessert by the restaurant for our celebration. So very thoughtful and unexpected. Would definitely go back.
