Always a great choice. The filets are fork tender and done perfectly. Menu is more limited than usual due to Covid but still very good.

Drinks took way too long, asked for salt and pepper, received it after our meal was finished, chipped martini glass, steaks over cooked ...I’ll go to Ruth Chris next time

Surprisingly poor service, food was mediocre and very expensive for what we were served. Restaurant used to be fairly decent but seems to have slipped a great deal since COVID.

Firstly, our food was okay except for the calamari, it was hard, had an old taste. Overall, we were disappointed nothing really measured up to a 5 star restaurant. The food presentation was really terrible, including the cold piece of birthday cake with no ice cream. I did not leave feeling like it was well worth the money. Side items looked and tasted like they were whipped up in 10 minutes. The steak was good. Disappointed overall.

Service was phenomenal! Food was ok. Got the NY Strip and it was cooked to my liking but the seasonings and butter were over-powering the flavor of the steak. The sides were great (brussel sprouts, mashed tators)!

The service is slow and inattentive. Food was poor and undercooked and preparation was sloppy. We left after the appetizer and do not plan on ever going back.
I would not recommend this place. Find somewhere else where they care about their customers.

The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Unfortunately because of COVID the menu is limited so many of the items I wanted to try were not being served like the grilled pork chops and the bread pudding. I will definitely return in the future and hopefully they will be serving the full menu. Great place to dine!

As always, the service was stellar. I tried the France offering of Steaks around the world and it was probably one of the best dishes I've ever had. The combination of flavors was beyond my expectations. I'm hoping you make it available again, perhaps add it to the regular menu? Just a thought.

1. I mentioned in the reservation notes I wanted a booth and that I was celebrating an anniversary. Upon entering I was told all booths were reserved and that it had not been noted that I wanted a booth.
2. No one mentioned my 40yr Anniversary all night.
3. I am disappointed that the dress code has been extremely relaxed.
4. A customer was walking around with a “fish net mask” on. Her nose and mouth fully in view and uncovered ! She should have been asked to wear a mask. There were masks at the front desk.
5. I asked a floor manager (white shoes and blue suit) if I could have or buy the “Jefferson” wooden wine box sitting above one of the booths (with a lamp on top.) He First said know, but then said “let me see if I can work some magic.” He never came back.

Jefferson is a family name. It was my anniversary. My mother died two years ago same day as my anniversary. Her name was Mrs C. Jefferson. It would have been nice to own the box. 🙁

Hands down the best filet I've ever had! Very generous 7oz . Ordered it "rare" ..it was perfectly cooked, tender beyond belief and seasoned to perfection. Our server was delightful and management respectfully attentive! Worth ever penny!!!

We had higher expectations with the food. The pot stickers were sub par. The French onion soup was too sweet and our king crab legs were poor quality and bent when we went to crack them. The manager did ask a couple of times how we were doing but we didn’t see a point in refiring the legs. The salad was delicious, we loved the ranch, our filet was perfectly cooked and the wine selection is amazing. We appreciated the decanter and the quick wine tip. The customer service was great but the kitchen was slow. Overall we won’t be back.

My wife and I have been keen customers of Eddie Merlot for a number of years and I'm happy to find that this Carmel location continues to provide an exceptional experience even in this COVID-19 year.
Daniel was our server at dinner on Tuesday 10/13 and he made sure that we were well looked after. He gave us info in the current Steaks from Around The World promotion and he knew the traditional menu well.
Social distancing and masks were in place.
Highly recommended restaurant.

Our waiter, whose name escapes me unfortunately, was excellent. Prompt service and knowledgeable. My food was breathtaking. I was skeptical of coming here with it being a chain—you need to go. Get the filet Rossini. And you MUST get the French onion soup. The wine I ordered, a Chianti, was also fabulous. This was my first time dining at Eddie Merlot’s. And it certainly won’t be my last.
