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.

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.

The meal was wonderful but I was a little disappointed, my crab legs were served cold and the butter arrived at the table unmelted. Once the butter melted I put the crab in the hot butter and it did warm it up. We were having dinner with another couple and when the check came it was all on one bill, that was rather awkward, we did request that the bill be split.

With this being said, it was Valentine's Day and you guys were swamped, everyone has an off night. We are a regular at Eddie's and in 7 years only had 2 times where we were not over the top with the experience. The food has always been exquisite.

We will be returning in the near future.

Absolutely loved the steak and the sea bass. Cooked to perfection. We also had the candied bacon appetizer - fantastic. Every course was superb. Wait staff is amazing. Knowledgeable, personable, and very attentive. We felt very pampered. We were celebrating 31 years of marriage and Valentine's Day. We're so happy we chose Eddie Merlot's. We're already planning our next visit.

Our 2nd visit - Shrimp Cocktail appetizer never disappoints, tried a Premium steak - MS9+ Filet 5oz and it was worth every penny! Hands down the best steak I have ever eaten. Creme Brulee and Eddie's Coffee to finish the experience. Signed up for the Platinum Card - we will definitely return.

Outstanding as usual. Mike's service was prompt, courteous and delivered exactly what we ordered. Ribeye was perfect, medium rare with a push. Wife's filet was medium rare and Oscar style. Appetizers were wonderful; mammoth shrimp cocktail with horseradish flavor to match the size of the shrimp.
I have eaten at many steak houses, Lugar's in NYC, Gallagher's in Vegas, Ruby's in Columbus, Mitchell's Columbus and Eddie's is a winner. Consistently, the steaks shine through. No extra seasonings. Just a steak as you ordered it. It's why we keep coming back.
