    I would be happy to give this restaurant an overall 5, but my husband and I find it extremely annoying when we arrive 1/2 hour before our dining reservation in order to enjoy a drink at the bar, only to be told there is no room there because people are dining there. Nobody needs to explain why restaurants and bars do this. I get it, but I guess the days of enjoying a cocktail and then being seated at your table for dinner are over. On a more positive note, the food was delicious and the service excellent.

    A menu that offers a bit of everything to please everybody. And be certain to order a side of the tempura green beans or asparagus. They alone are worth a visit. In the mood for something flamboyant? Order the flaming Bananas Foster; it is quite the show!

    Everything was perfect till the end when the server offended us by thinking we were not tipping him enough. The tip was left based off the final bill. However, we was confused on the price of the final bill. Once we got the correct total we would of adjusted his tip amount. He made us not want to give him anything by the way he treated us.

    Save your money.... steak and seafood.... yeah right. They need to send the entire staff to Harry and Izzy .... located in downtown Indy. They could learn a few things about cooking steak and shrimp. Not that hard folks.

    My wife and I ordered Fillet Mignon, she a 6 oz and me an 8 oz. The steaks each had several bites of gristle which was unusual for any filet we have had at other retuarants. We both had the filet, a salad, one other side and one glass of moscato. Total bill was over $220. We have had better for much less. However, the service was top notch. We have, at other times, had a better food quality experience at Eddie Merlot and on that basis along with the excellent service, I would stil recommend them if you are willing to spend a substantial amount.

    I had my Chilean Sea Bass as always and it was spectacular, a good portion and cooked to the right texture. My wife enjoyed also her cedar plank Salmon. We will come back in a couple of week for a seminar there.

    I am a chef, so I know the business, waiter had too many tables. Very chatty and many personal stories. So he was always in the weeds. Don’t get me wrong, not bad service just not what I expect when I am spending 500 dollars on a 3 top. Not your best

    We had a delightful Christmas dinner at Eddie Merlot's. We were welcomed warmly, got seated promptly in a booth, as I had requested, and were attended to immediately. Our server, Jake, was very professional, friendly, and knowledgable about the menu and wine list. When my steak came out it was a little underdone. Jake took care of it and in three or four minutes I was enjoying my dinner. If you are looking for an upscale steakhouse with good atmosphere, delicious food, and excellent service, don't hesitate to make a reservation at Eddie Merlot's.

    This is the first time I have had a sub-par experience at EM. I have always loved this place! I ordered the medallion trio and asked for medium. Waiter clarified “pink in middle”. Arrived well done and not juicy and tender. I know medallions are thin, but this is what steakhouses know how to do! Especially for $65! Hollandaise sauce was SO salty, I could only tolerate a few bites with water in-between. Other sauces salty as well. People at my table who ordered Medium Rare got Rare…very rare! The service was very good, but the food was a bust!☹️

    When you go, ask for Matt! He was amazing along with everyone who was helping him. Matt was very personable and helpful with the menu. We were there on Christmas with a party of 6. Our meal was well paced and he even put in the kids orders early.
