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.

Eddie Merlot's is one of our area's best eateries, and always good, excellent food and service. Easter Brunch was a little busy for us, a little crowed, and a little slow, but still way above the average.

Went for Easter Brunch. I travel a bunch for business and get to try very nice establishments. This has to be in the top 5. Everything was excellent, fresh, spot on. The meat simply melted in your mouth. The brunch was a cost but when you actually get excellent quality, service, etc then it's worth the money. Excellent experience in every aspect. ( The staff was maybe the top 3 of an establishment I've been too of this high caliber ).

This was my first visit. The place was pretty empty for a Saturday night. The food was just ok, but definitely not worth the $50 per steak price tag considering the service was just ok as well. If I’m going to pay that kind of money for a meal, the service should be top notch. Also, I found a hair that was definitely not mine or my spouse’s on my packed potato. We had some issues trying to use a gift card to pay for part of the meal. The revised ticket actually came back as a higher bill instead of less. Our waitress seemed to be more annoyed with us than apologetic for the situation. I don’t care if I don’t ever go back. Overrated in my opinion.

We have eaten here many times and this time it was a little off. Wait staff was fairly new so we can give them a break here but the food not as usual. Creamed spinach was too garlicky, steak overly salted and the Oysters Rockefeller undercooked and rather gross.

I was disappointed with my bone-in filet. I had requested it be cooked medium, but it was raw in the center. I understand that it would difficult to cook as the bone covered much of the exterior. The management did compensate for the cost of my steak. We have had better experiences on other visits.

The Sunday brunch was awesome. When the word gets out about the Sunday brunch, they will be very busy. Price was great for brunch. Can’t wait to go back next Sunday. Best food around, and they take reservations, so no waiting in line. Great for after church.

Have not been to Eddie Merlot's in over a year and I doubt we will be back any time soon due to their prices. Compared to other quality restaurants in our area, Eddie Merlot's is way overpriced for the same quality, quantity, service and ambiance.

I have been coming to the Fort Wayne location for the last 10 years and have always had a great experience with the bartenders,servers and other staff.
It started with our bartender having drinks before being seated .
On Saturday February 24 ,Rachel was our server and she was most attentive during our dinner and made suggestions that we appreciated .
After dinner we enjoyed the music in the bar area and Hillary was our server .
Thanks and Regards

We had a booth in the corner which was very romantic and quite. The food was excellent having it prepared at the table. The service was excellent and not overbearing. The waitress came by to ensure we were doing fine and if we need anything. She did not come by too often to bother our conversation. The environment was great. Could not ask for more.

Did valentines day dinner. My wife got hers served with a long black hair on the plate. That was the end of that. They offered to make another but we declined. The scalloped potatoes were very good. The steak was fatty. The crab legs were freezer burned. Waitress was nice. Probably just a bad night.

Everything about our visit was great except for the location of our table. It's hard to describe, but it was in a long hall with tables on one side only. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but our table was opposite the bump-out for HVAC and the fire extinguisher. Wait staff had to be careful passing between those of us seated on the outside of the table and the bump-out. It didn't ruin our night in spite of the constant monitoring of traffic, but it would be my dead last choice for a table.
