My husband and I went to Eddie’s for a date night. We hadn’t been before and took a chance based on it being said to be similar to St. Elmo’s. Let me start by saying that the restaurant could not be any more different. We started off by ordering the sweet and spicy shrimp and the charbroiled oysters. Both appetizers were basic and were served luke warm at best, and took an hour to be served. I am not exaggerating. We ordered cocktails and drinks, he had the Old Fashioned, the ice could not be any cloudier, and I had their Eddie cocktail, it was a run down lemon drop, in my opinion and only managed to get two sips in before I couldn’t any longer. At this point my husband was very anxious on waiting for our bison ribeye and the bourbon ribeye, I honestly would have loved to have left at this point, but really didn’t want to ruin the night. They did a good job of that on their own. We were served the steaks and was missing an a la carte side item, the waitress hadn’t even put it in. We could not get out of this restaurant fast enough, I do not think that I would ever return here, they really need to invest in a better service team. We went straight to St. Elmo’s upon leaving the establishment, we should’ve stuck to what we knew!

We had some issues initially with service (sat for 15 minutes before a server greeted us), but the manager addressed the issue and made sure we were well taken care of following. The food was phenomenal

Great food with great service. Have tried multiple dishes and I have never been disappointed. Portions just right. Once dinner is over you feel satisfied but not “stuffed”. Large selection of wines.

We had tickets to the theater at 7pm. We arrived at 5pm. We were done, without being rushed, by 6:30pm. Great place to go for dinner and a show date night.

We have been to Eddie Merlots twice in the past 3 months. First time was because we got a gift card. Second time our friends chose the restaurant. Both times we ordered a filet cooked medium and it came out raw. For being a steakhouse i was hoping the steaks would be cooked correctly. Our service last night also forgot that we ordered a bottle of wine, forgot our salads and was rarely at our table. We had to track down other waiters for service. For what we paid for a table of 4, i felt the steaks and service was poor.

I feel this restaurant is very overpriced for the overall experience. The was wasn’t bad per se but to spend that kind of money would expect a special meal. Other restaurants in the area much better with comparable prices. Also, they sat us right by the front door and it was so cold with other patrons smoking outside so we were hit with waves of cold air and smoke.

Food was great and staff was friendly, but our waitress was extremely uninformed about the wine selection, and when we asked about specific wines could only provide the description that they were “dry.” Still a great place for date night, but was disappointed that for a place with a two page wine list the staff isn’t required to know a little bit more information for people dropping money on an entire bottle.

Eddie was the most inconsiderate manager I have ever encountered. My daughter left her headphones and the restaurant refused to look for them or to acknowledge there was an issue considering they were $250 earphones. I spent $300 on 2 adults and a child and for him to not escalate this issue is insulting. This restaurant is overrated bottomline...

Our server was incredibly slow. Asked if we wanted still or sparking water. We ordered sparkling and she brought the still and never corrected the problem. Steaks were just okay and the side dishes were blah. Our wine was good, though! There was a group of 4 next to us who started filming a rap video, before being thrown out and loudly refusing to pay the bill. I will not be back any time soon.

We got the Valentine's Day Surf & Turf special for $119 and it was fantastic—the filet was cooked to perfection and the lobster was sweet and tender. We also got some cocktails that were delicious and some brussel sprouts as a side which were also great.

This was Valentine’s Day and our first time at E.M. For me, the experience was pretty good. I really liked the French Onion soup and the Del Mar Chef’s choice entree was very good, too. My wife wasn’t as impressed with the Mix Grill option. Calamari wasn’t our favorite, either. Too crunchy and where’s the calamari?😕 They DID pass the test with the famed carrot cake. The caramel on top is bangin!! We got extra caramel to go!😆 We will try it again, one day. We will give Eddie Merlot a 7 out of 10. Ruth Chris is still on top with a 9.5.😉

We had the absolute best waiter with Jason. They were extremely busy and he didn't miss a beat. Appetizer was the filet mignon pot stickers. Not the best to be honest but we would order one of the other amazing apps we had on previous visits. My wife had the crab and corn chowder, it was delicious as usual. I had the ribeye and it was the best that I have had their over many visits. It is always good but this was exceptional. The lobster mashed potatoes and the tempura green beans are a must. Triple chocolate cake for dessert was decent. They definitely need to have bourbon bread pudding or seasonal bread pudding on the dessert menu regularly. Looking forward to going back and will be requesting Jason as our server.

My wife and I love celebrating our anniversary every year at Eddie Merlot’s. This year we both ordered the Filet Del Mar special. It came with a 4 oz. filet smothered in a delicious crab meat sauce, 4 shrimp, potatoes and a Caesar salad. My wife said it was the best steak she had ever eaten. (Top 3 for me.) We also ordered the sweet potato casserole. So good! About halfway through our meal the manager came to check on us. Upon hearing it was our anniversary, he brought us each a complimentary glass of champagne. Our server, Alex, was so sweet and pleasant. She and the rest of the staff took great care of us all evening. For dessert we enjoyed a piece of their chocolate cake and decaf coffee. Both were amazing! Because it was our anniversary they sent us home with a serving of creme brûlée. So smooth and delicious.

Eddie Merlot’s is not a place we go to very often, simply because of the price. However, when we do visit for that special occasion, we have NEVER been disappointed.
