This was our first time at Eddie Merlot's and we were very pleased! The food was great, and the options and pricing of their Savor Ft. Wayne menu was amazing! They have lots of options on their regular menu that are also reasonably priced as well. We ordered the house salad, ribeye with broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes; then I got the chocolate cake and my fiancé got the carrot cake. Our server also gave us the crème brûlée for free, cause it was her favorite dessert on the menu. We also ordered the calamari appetizer, which comes with 3 dipping sauce that were all very good! Finally, my fiancé ordered a Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned and I got the Betty White martini. The drinks were strong and delicious! The whole restaurant is beautiful and was very clean! We had a wonderful time and would love to go back again sometime.

Our waitress was the best!! I believer her name was Candice. She gave us our privacy but was very attentive to our every need before we had to even ask. You could tell that she is a very seasoned server. I would go back just for her!

We went for the Savor Fort Wayne menu. The atmosphere at Eddie Merlot's is great and the service was good. The disappointing part was the Prime Ribeye steak. It lacked taste and was full of fat. Since they're most well-known for their steaks, this was very surprising and we probably won't go back.

I was disappointed with our food. The mashed potatoes didn’t have any garlic flavor. My steak was very fatty and was not as tender as I expected. We had ordered our steak Oscar style and they forgot. They brought it out on the side about 5-10 minutes after we got our food.

This Eddie Merlot's offered a special for the local Savor Fort Wayne. They offered a special that was not normally on their menu and the steak was not a good as their own signature steaks. It was nice to be in a high end restaurant, but the steak was not that good.

Let me start with two qualifiers…1) we had a toddler and an infant in our party, and 2) it was restaurant week in Fort Wayne. The table service was wonderful and our service was incredibly nice. She interacted so well with the kids. The delivery of food and drinks to the table was slow and the place was really busy. However, the food was very good. Often times when you select a “special” in any other restaurant, the quality is different than the other menu items. Not this time. The 12 oz prime ribeye was cooked to perfection. It was great to see the manager working the tables to ensure customer satisfaction. All in all, it was a pretty good experience.

This was the first time my wife and I were in this restaurant. All the food was great except for the Ribeye steak I was served. It was probably the toughest piece of meat I have ever eaten in a restaurant. After all the pr about how great your steaks were, I did not expect how tough this steak was!

Service was okay- but we had a big party so I understand. Some things were excellent- others were a miss. The spicy shrimp was our favorite app- the calamari and Artichoke dip weren’t favorites. Neither of the soups were amazing. Steaks were all cooked perfectly. The lobster mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, and Brussel sprouts were solid. The truffle fries were inedible. The desserts were generously sized and certainly shareable! Most of the drinks were mixed well but a few came out pretty terrible. Overall a great experience and will be back but will avoid a few dishes.

Super place with elegance. The food was great. I do not drink alcoholic beverages, but they made some great alternatives to enjoy. The appetizers - shrimp cocktail and charbroiled oysters were perfect. The Wagyu filet, though expensive, was prepared perfectly. The service was fantastic with Megan. Thanks Eddie Merlot.

Ambiance and food was great, the server however was very awkward, after I ordered calamari she proceeded to ask if I order calamari everywhere I go? I told her no and she started to suggest her recommended appetizer before the other couple we we’re with could order theirs in which they were ordering her “recommended” appetizer, for an almost $300 meal it shouldn’t matter what I order, also the manager Delivered our apps and proceeded to tell us how much he hated the plates…The food was good but some professionalism is expected when you are paying that high of prices for a meal.

I've been a customer for many years and overall it's always been fun, food good . We try and come over from Warsaw once every 6-8 weeks. I've been a Filet fan and order it every time . But in the last year I can't seem to get a Medium Well slightly pink and a hot steak. When the meal comes out the plate should be at least warm and meat hot, last night like the last several times earlier the fries and steak were not even hot close to warm but not hot. I never have like to send a steak back and go through all the server feeling bad drama.

The service and food are not bad, but far from extraordinary. I would say it was a neutral experience, which is inline with every time I have been to Eddie Merlot. Value wise, I would say Eddie Merlot is about 50% more than it should be. It is not a good value based on the food and service. I've been to many similarly priced restaurants around the world, all have been a better experience with much better food. But my children enjoyed it and it is close to home. So we will probably return yet again.
