Steakhouse
Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef and Seafood starts with U.S.D.A. Prime Beef. Only 2% of all U.S. beef is awarded this superior certification. Eddie Merlot’s ages the beef naturally to an unparalleled standard of tenderness and flavor. The chef then personally selects each piece for the optimum proportion of marbling, and texture, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender, and juicy steaks to your specifications. To seal in the flavor, the steak is flash-sear on high-heat grills. Eddie Merlot’s has created one of the hottest concepts today; the wine bar provides more than 70 wines by the glass and a very extensive reserve wine collection by the bottle. The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot’s boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

Food quality seems to be less than our usual experience. The presentation of the food in general was lacking from past years. We are regular Eddie’s customers and there is a distinct difference in the quality. Times now are tough and we understand that so forgivable but I am fearful for their ongoing success. I hope they can recover.

Fantastic food and service. The prime filet was amazing, it was cooked to perfection and you could cut it with a fork. Very good service, and the appetizers and sides were also fantastic.

My wedge salad came out with old, bitter lettuce but it was quickly replaced when we brought it to the waitress’ attention. Everything else was great.

Clam chowder was good but I prefer it without bacon. The sashimi wontons were good but so little tuna and drizzle on my plate. The tuna was minuscule!The filet with crab was Absolutely delicious but incredibly smallwith 2 asparagus. I wish the waitress could have suggested a side. The carrot cake and chocolate cake were also good but I felt they were sheet cakes that I could have made. When I go to an upscale restaurant I want to see fancier desserts and reasonable sized portions.

We had a server problem due to changing servers in the middle of our ordering. The server we began with obviously was serving several tables in the room we were dining. He started serving us and we were happy. But for some reason he was replaced with Josh who was not in our room much and when we had an issue and asked the other server we began with, he said, "I am not your server." We knew it would be a while that Josh would come back into our room so we went all the way to the desk. That made our experience for our anniversary a bit less desirable. We are not complainers but this was definitely a bad issue that the restaurant should address.

Server was more than pleasant, but her service was slow. Could have been the kitchen, but we don’t know. There were three dessert options, and two were sold out. Dessert chef was overwhelmed which slowed the overall service to our table.
Food was really good.

Overall it was a good value. We had the Chef's grill and King Crab Legs, the crab legs were a little strong flavor and not sweet like I have had before also small in size. It was a lot of work to get my dinner from the smaller legs. I would not get them again.
