Experience was good overall. Food was good. Appetizers were ok. Overall I’d go back but it wasn’t the most amazing experience.

We were the first customers to arrive, they waited on us right away. They knew their food when they answered our questions. Everything was as good as they said it was.

The Wygue fillet is the best steak we have ever had at any restaurant in the last 50 years. Service was spot on, not too much but always there right before I needed something. Was a perfect date and a perfect meal.

Had the sea bass. It was cooked nicely but I think the piece of meat was just not great. Server was stretched with number of tables. Not a bad experience overall but not anxious to go back.

Bethany was amazing - best service we have had there in a while.
Husband had the bourbon flank steak and i had the bourbon ribeye - both were delicious!
We were, however, disappointed in the calamari. We miss the shell it used to be served in plus it was very chewy (guessing overcooked).

I feel that basically for$200 per couple, the experience was mediocre. Eddie Merlot’s has always been our go to restaurant. We have gone there for years. We have our favorite waitress, Keri, if everyone was Keri all would be great.
I work in the service industry. I totally get how very difficult this time is. But our last 3 visits have just not been impressive.
This evening we were celebrating a birthday. Our hostess asked who’s birthday. We stated who’s it was. That was the last it was mentioned. We had to ask for our bread. After appetizers and salad. Then when they were bringing leftover boxes we had to ask for dessert. It just was off.
This really is sad because we had several special occasions here. And typically dine here 5-6 times a year.

Maybe our expectations were too high. Ordered salads and the waitress offered bread. Prior to that we ordered drinks. The salads came prior to my beer (my wife did receive her drink). The waitress came back and said, “oh I’ll check on your beer” only to go to the next table and take their order. She came back and said they were out of the beer I ordered...so I ordered a bud light, but again prior to putting my beer order in she stopped at the next table to take their order. 15-20 minutes after ordering a beer, it finally came (wish I was exaggerating, in fact salads were served the gentleman asked he we needed anything else and I replied “my drink”).

Food ordered. Steak ordered medium and when she brought it out she stared at it for a few moments and served it to me. Came back and asked if everything tasted okay to which I said “you looked at this steak for so long because you thought it was overdone, right?” She replied “yes”. Fortunately, I actually am not that picky and medium plus to medium well is okay, but for a $52 steak, it should be done correctly. Wife’s shrimp was inedible as it was too over salted (she likes salt) and her potato’s weren’t salted at all.

Again, expectations were probably just too high. All and all, food was pretty good, not cooked as ordered and for that price it should be fairly perfect. Chocolate cake for dessert was pretty good. Given we don’t dine out places like this frequently and their are so many options, doubtful I’d return.

One word..."SALT". We've been to Eddie Merlot's 3 times with a great experience overall. Last Saturday's entree's were loaded with salt, service was average at best. Not sure if it was a bad night, but need to improve consistency.

Started with a flavorful Oysters Rockefeller. Very good. Next we had the New Orleans Mix Grill. The steak was excellent but the sausage was average and the shrimp had no flavor. I will stick to steak from now on because really, it was fantastic. Mashed potatoes were great. Tempera Asparagus was average. Overall for the price they could do better. However, the steaks were soooo good!
