    Food was absolutely fantastic! Had a little issue with timing. Waited a long time for bread and our salads, then our meals came minutes after the salads. Other than that, our server was lovely and just the right amount of attentiveness.

    Was simply disappointing. My colleague and I had already finished our salads before they delivered a drink. Dinner was overpriced and over hyped. Service was so slow. Server was very nice but overall quality of the experience was poor.

    The service was top notch. My wife’s food and most of my food was amazing, but my salmon was a little over cook. I liked the crust on the salmon, but it was a little dry.

    this was by far the worst visit to Eddie Merlot I have ever experienced. Sat me by the kitchen door and a baby shower in the big room next to me with little kids running in and out the whole time. When I spend this kind of money I expect the experience to be top notch. I think it will be a while before I consider coming back. There are other places to go that have a much better control of the going on's in the dinning areas.

    Waitress didn’t offer us any bread or butter that is complementary, Wedge salad was good, waygu steak was poorly cooked, tough & a poor cut for $100 (there was no way it was 16 ounces 12 ounces at best and very thin) , asparagus was boiled to death no seasoning and mushy, Eddie‘s potatoes were fair at best. The GM never came and check on us so we had to ask for her to come to our table as we explained what was happening. She took off 2 wines & gave us some ice cream at the end of the night to make up for our disappointment. The ice cream was freezer burned. She gave us the ice cream and never checked on us again. Oh and I forgot to mention that our pepper shaker on our table was completely empty. No one was checking on us so I had to take some from another table at this fine dining establishment. Pretty ridiculous for a high-end steakhouse. We will not be back.

    Went out for our 32 anniversary. Very nice experience. Great Filets. Overall quality of food was really good. I would recommend for any special occasion. Just bring the wallet filled with cash. We split everything except the entree and price was $180. That’s a lot but we felt it was worth the experience in the end. Hope to be back someday.

    One of the best restaurants in CBUS. If you like oysters rockefeller, Eddies offers some of the best! Needless to say their beef is outstanding. The chef prepared our filet mignon to our request, one rare and the other medium rare. Eddie Merlot's uses a team of folks to make certain their table service is focused on the customer. They were respectful of our desires and certainly met them.

    It was our first time in and everything was absolutely wonderful! Our server Nick was outstanding! We always have questions about wine and he was very knowledgeable about the wine menu. We explained what we like and he picked the perfect one for us to enjoy! Our meal did not disappoint either. The crab soup was to die for! Will definitely be back again for another date night.

    We were weekly diners at Eddie’s for years but stopped due to poor quality and lackluster service. Our daughter came into town and wanted to go so we gave them another shot. So glad we did! We sat out on the patio and Claudia was our server. She was excellent; friendly and professional. The food was also excellent. We had oysters, tuna poke, charcuterie and grilled romaine salads. Perfect! Their steaks are always a winner but we chose to dine lightly that evening. Definitely recommend and we will be returning for our weekly dinners and cocktails.

    Absolutely delicious. Cocktails were not happy hour priced unless at the bar 😔 We ordered oysters Rockefeller, bread and salad, pre fix menu with salmon for him, steak for me. chocolate cake to finish.. This was for our anniversary and it felt very special, however we were not treated to any complimentary treat at all, not even a toast! Blaim the economy I guess, but we blew over 200 bucks so this is not gonna be repeated.

    Frequently eat at Eddie's but stopped for a period of time due to poor service and food not being warm when coming to the table. Game them another chance and things seem to have improved. Had an enjoyable birthday dinner recently and things went well.

    Very nice restaurant. Service was great, cocktails were very good. Nice wine selection. We had steak which is very expensive right now. My wife’s steak was chewy. You pay a lot for the ambiance and service. Having said that we would go again.
