Thomas was our server, I really appreciated his calm approach. We will ask for him when we come back.

We waited for almost two hours and didn't get our main course. just got appetizers and a salad. We saw another couple come in and they were served withing 30min - 45min. We didn't even get offered drink refills. They paid well attention to the larger parties, none to us. Wife's birthday did not end on a good note.

Too long of a wait between salad and entree. Three hours for the meal is too long

Perfect place for the special occasions in life. We celebrate anniversaries here, and sent out daughter for her prom and 18th birthday. It's always a nice way to make an evening special

Why, Why,Why did you change the shrimp cocktail and the sauce??? You rivaled and in my opinion beat St Elmo's. Even when I ask they cant make it as good. It was a staple and conversation piece. I may be different because i come there enough to be your diamond club. i brought people that we interested in stacking it up St Elmo's. Offer both!!! offer a deluxe spicy one and charge more. just for the love of God bring it back please.

On a street with heavy construction, not many people were having dinner there. It was wonderful. The desserts were huge! Service was prompt and excellent. This is my second time there and I will go back!

Wedge salad dry had to request extra dressing, NY strip over cooked ordered med rare delivered closer toward medium no one check steak after first cut, carrot cake boasted as great and had too much cinnamon and nutmeg. Best carrot cake in Indy this far is Prime 47. Overpriced for food quality compared to Ocean Prime or Sullivans.

First time visit to Eedie Merlot's. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Soups werd outstanding - we could have made a meal out of them! Steaks were done to pefection. Mashed potatoes were not quite hot enough, but the server quickly remedied that issue. We would definitely go back!

Enjoyed everything about our experience. We were in to celebrate my Wife’s birthday and the staff, under the guidance of the GM, Aaron Tann, was amazing. Our server Lindsay and the rest of the staff were incredible attentive and made the experience exceptional. We are not the easiest table either, as we have four children, three four and under. The staff was great with all of the members of our party and didn’t make us feel as if we were burdensome nor did they rush us out. It was a great evening!

We were at Eddie Merlot's to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was awesome, the service was remarkable, and the chef even came to our table and introduced himself and inquired if everything was satisfactory. We will definitely recommend Eddie Merlot to our friends! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

This is one of my favorite restaurants, but I have to say I was let down by the service this trip. I was celebrating my birthday and my boyfriend brought me to dinner to celebrate, however I server was very distracted and spent most of his time talking with the table next to us rather than servicing our needs. The food was still great, but service certainly needed some work. Also Valet was not operating which made it an inconvenience. Overall, I still do enjoy the restaurant and atmosphere, I just hope staffing is better.

most of the food was good our steaks had a lot of fat in them and mine had some tendons in it that made them less than appetizing. they defiantly were not worth the $60.00 price tag.

There were some issues with the temperature of a couple of entrees being overcooked. One person in our party had asked for medium-well for her steak and it was more like well-done. Another had asked for his burger to be cooked medium and it was definitely well-done. The burger was sent back and cooked correctly but our friend who had the steak did not want to complain. The caesar salad was not that great but the fried oysters were amazing! Overall, it was just okay this time but not as good as times past that we've visited. Maybe it was an off night for the kitchen. I won't completely write them off but for the money we spent, the food should have been better. Our server, Annie, was AMAZING!!!

This was our first time dining at Eddie Merlot’s. It was our anniversary. The food was top notch and our server Kim made our experience enjoyable from start to finish. Her knowledge and descriptive suggestions on appetizers, entrees and deserts were spot on. She also timed the meal impeccably! Each course was amazing! We would highly recommend this restaurant!

Went for our anniversary. It was nice. Food was good. I was, as usual, disappointed that they have no non-alcoholic cocktails on there menu. Our waiter, while friendly & knowledgeable was a little cheesey with a bit of a comedy routine which we weren't really into. The Bananas Foster was superb.

My husband and I go to Eddie Merlot's for our date night. I tried one of the new side dishes and found it to be delicious. I also had the wedge salad, which is ten times better than Harry & Izzy's" wedge salad. My husband had the salmon entree and loved it.

We love to celebrate our anniversaries at Eddie Merlots. The food is always fabulous! We were able to take advantage of the “half price bottle of wine” this time. Had a wonderful bottle from their extensive collection.

Many restaurants have great food, but put that together with very friendly and personable servers and management and low noise level (really, we could hear each other) , and reasonable prices, and you have a winner named Eddie Merlot!!! We truly enjoyed the evening!!!

A very nice dinning experience..everytime! Atmosphere was nice with what seemed to be good people; guest and staff. Dan, the GM, was great with introducing himself and following thru with a minor concerned I had. It all worked out. See you again soon.

Eddie’s is a favorite special occasion restaurant. The food and service is always good. This time everything seemed extra special. Our server was training a new server and he did a great job. I’m confident the service would have still been great even If he had been on his own!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is very nice and inviting. Staff was tremendous. There were a couple of groups there that made it a bit load as they had to talk over each other. Food is always spectacular. We certainly recommend it for an anniversary.
