About Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef & Seafood - Fort Wayne
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 Prime Aged Beef & Seafood - Fort Wayne Ratings and Reviews
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.
My wife and I visited for her birthday and had the best meal we have enjoyed in many years. There was nothing that was not 5 star from the wine to the dessert, everything was amazing. Eddie's is one of our favorite restaurants and we will be back I promise!
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.
I asked my Mother to be my Valentine. She was very pleased with the Restaurant. I was too. The food was delicious, the wait staff was excellent and the experience was like eating in a large city. With excellent bread and service. Very happy and would return!
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.
The food was delicious as always! Atmosphere very classy and warm. Our favorite waiter, Mark was awesome as usual. He always makes us feel very special; talks with us; serves us as if we were a king and Queen. He should instruct waiters on how to be a good server. A wonderful evening full of incredible atmosphere, amazing food, and awesome service.
The staff here are awesome! They are very attentive to our special requests for dairy free options. The food is fabulous. I enjoyed the crab martini appetizer during this visit. I also had the salmon special and was not disappointed. The desserts are delicious as well and my usual French Martini! I enjoyed the Peanut Butter cup dessert while me son's favorite was the Chocolate Cake. My daughter had a specially made sponge cake with fresh fruit due to her dairy free restrictions. I love coming here!
A little over crowded ... Pricy for the middle, to upper middle class ... this is not an everyday dining type establishment - "currently" - in my viewpoint Eddie M's is best for a Business Meal or Special Occasion ... Service was very good - Kristen was a real people person ... seemed a bit overstaffed, but it is the holiday season (possible opportunity to back off on pricy issue ) ... Food preparation stated "simplicity" ... the Eddie potatoes were outstanding!! ... I personally am not appreciative (& everyone at the table did mention it) of having the main dish "Sliced" prior to being presented to the table ... I find it best to be kind than to be right so when the manager stopped by in passing and asked "how was everything?" we simply stated "very good" ... I'm glad to have this opportunity to provide a wonderful restaurant like Eddie Merlot's with an objective and honest review, so if in fact this review is read and taken seriously please understand this is not to be looked at as a review from a negative or unhappy customer... the meal was good & everyone at the table enjoyed our time together so this is simply a true & honest review from a true food loving & meal experience searching person - especially while in my ever continuous business travels!!
Blessings to the management, staff & their families for the holidays!!
PS - a review is just another way for stating an opinion & we are all aware that we all have an opinion ... but an honest one, from an honest person is what all service businesses should be listening for ... "God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason" my grandfather always told me!! ... enjoy life, be honest, make the best of the journey plus share a smile and some kindness along the way!!
We enjoyed the food as well as the uplifting Christmas music! The steaks were done perfectly as well as the salad and dessert. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable. He was also easy to converse with about our food (Oliver). We were very happy with our birthday dinner!
Thank you all!
Eddies is always very good but the food was not as hot as usual, but still good.
It is a bit expensive for the drinks and food. My wife didn't like the fact that 4 of the sides had jalepenas including corn and 2 potato dishes. Fell below usual quality. Thank you
