First time at Eddie Merlots for me. The server was exceptional assisting our group with drinks, appetizers, and dinner selections. The atmosphere was perfect for a social / business gathering. Appetizers were very good and the dinners exceeded the groups expectations as evidenced by many comments during and after dinner. Unfortunately, we did not have dessert, which I am sure would have been wonderful. As far as value, I left feeling that I had paid a fair price for an exceptional dining experience. I definitely plan to return.

Our server, James, was very attentive and friendly, our drinks never saw the bottom of the glass, and the food was AMAZING. Two of us had the filet mingon and one had grilled shrimp. The Caesar salads were great, as well.

For appetizers I recommend the crab martini cocktail and ahi tuna poke, both items were delicious.

Recommend the spinach salad but easy on the bacon vinaigrette dressing. The crab and corn bisque is very good but rich.

Wife ordered the bison filet medium well (against server’s suggestion but they accommodated). The cut of meat was tender and not over cooked. I ordered the bone-in bison ribeye medium. Unfortunately, the cut was over cooked. The outside of the ribeye was chewy and charred but was tender near the bone.

The cauliflower gratin and brussels sprouts sides are shareable and worth it. Recommend those items.

Finished with cinnamon roll a la mode with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top. Strongly consider this dessert.

Finally, plenty of very good to excellent wines on the wine list. Be prepared to spend some shekels on the wine. Recommend the Duckhorn Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Napa Valley. A very good wine under $100 that won’t disappoint.

It was a lovely meal... it is extremely loud in this restaurant. The food was good not great. The service was also good. The chopped salad was my favorite part of the meal it was delicious.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day just a few days after. Always a great place to eat and the service, food , and atmosphere was outstanding. Not an inexpensive meal but always a memorable experience. Will be back again!

The staff was wonderful and the service was good.
We had Bananas Foster wrapping up the dinner. Table side service is rare and creates a wonderful experience.
We have not had a bad experience yet here and have dined at least 4 times this year.
The only comment I have is on the 20oz lobster. It seemed small. The tail was sweet and tender. Was not disappointed with the flavor. Just small-my fiancé ordered the 10oz with his filet and we did not see much of a difference in size. Just a little bit smaller.
