The food is AMAZING! The staff is incredible and for an upscale steakhouse the prices are great. I would definitely recommend Eddie Merlot.
We love EM - platinum members! The reason for the lower rating on this visit was because we went on Friday for the Seafood menu- specials. My partner got pan seared perch & I got fish/ chips (perch) - BAD move. Both meals were almost inedible. Stick with the steaks or burgers - always fantastic!!
Our waiter was newer and a little slow to check on us. When he did, he was quick to get he Manager who was so apologetic & super kind. He removed both meals from our ticket and offered us anything we wanted - great service from the Mgr.
We will be back - just not for the perch 🤢
Server, Alex, was wonderful! Food quality not up to previous experiences. Calamari over cooked and Veal Francisco tough with this visit.
A GF and I wanted steak, great wine, and great atmosphere. Eddie Merlot’s does not disappoint.
Enjoyed the Best steak I have had in a very long time; properly prepared and delicious! Joe, our waiter, was professional in every manner; attentive without being intrusive and extremely knowledgeable on every menu item. Highly recommend Eddie Merlot's for any occasion.
Our server, Robert, did an excellent job and made us feel welcome. Periodic follow up to see if we needed anything and if we were happy with the meal preparation was appreciated. We were welcomed and seated promptly by the hostess.
The food is always excellent, and the service is always so as well. We recommend tables with either Kim, Jason, or Don, but we always have really good to excellent service. The char, sea bass, steaks, mixed grill, and pork chops are superb.
We had a wonderful dinner! We had the tuna sashimi appetizer which was awesome. Then we had the Chateaubriand. It was excellent and a great value with two sides! We had the cinnamon roll dessert. Our server Don was so friendly, knowledgeable and made it a great experience! The only downside was the noise level from the bar since we were right outside of it.
Bryce is a thoroughly knowledgeable server - as, if not more, important, he was affable and funny.
We truly enjoyed our 35th wedding anniversary meal because of the treatment we received, the fabulous food and the AWESOME coffee!
My wife ordered a filet medium and it came out almost raw in center, sent back and came out charred! Sides were cold. Manager did give us 2 free deserts. A little disappointed, Eddie's is supposed to be best in town.
Our waiter was a little pushy and obnoxious but everyone else was fantastic.
Excellent steak and shrimp!
I have been here many times and it is consistently amazing!
I highly recommend Eddie Merlot’s
for the food and service. The bananas foster is incredible!
The best way to describe Eddie's is casual elegance. It is an upscale restaurant, but with a sort of casual, comfortable vibe. I feel perfectly at home wearing just a nice shirt and jeans there. The food is excellent, especially beef and seafood dishes of all kinds, and they have an excellent wine selection (hence the name). It is our go-to location for special occasions. It is a bit expensive but I have never been disappointed with any of their dishes, and the service is consistently as good as any of the finest restaurants. The staff truly does everything they can to make your dining experience enjoyable.
Excellent food and ambience for a special occasion.
Great steak! We chose a menu item meant for sharing where you get two types of cuts, in our case Filet and New York cuts. Spectacular presentation cut at our table. Steaks were perfectly prepared. Great meal!
Sommelier experience was great.
I took my wife and daughter out for a celebration of my daughters new book release and my wife for her new job. Our server Charles could not have treated us better, and that goes for the entire staff. I had the ribeye and eddies potatoes as well as the Mac and cheese, everything was perfect! One of the best steaks I’ve ever had, and that’s saying a lot. My family and I were very pleased with our experience, thank you.
The chateau briand is divine. Cut it with a fork. Service was very attentive.
Trio medallions. Scallops. Eddies potatoes. Custom tailored craft cocktail. All amazing
Great steakhouse with outstanding service
Dinner was fantastic. Our servers Joe and Rodney were awesome (particularly Rodney). Great cuts of meat, and the sides are top shelf. My only complaint would be the price of their wine. Is what it is, but $40 bucks for 5 buck chuck seems a bit excessive. Everything else was on point.
We all had small bites and they were very good.
It was a busy Saturday and the service was slow but otherwise would recommend
As usual, the service was outstanding and the food was delicious. This is our favorite place for special occasions.
Nice dinner start to finish, no complaints, Special occasion type place, worth it.
We were celebrating a romantic evening together, however the noise was so loud I couldn't even hear the waiter. We still had a wonderful evening, but it could have been better ambiance.
The overall evening was outstanding. Good food, service and atmosphere. We really enjoyed the evening celebrating our Anniversary. We will be back.
EXCELLANT, Best service and dining in Indianapolis!
We always have a wonderful experience at Eddie Merlot’s. The service is second to none and of course the food is outstanding!
Service, food, and atmosphere are all top notch. Worth every penny.
Overall, we were disappointed with our dining experience. We sat after each course with dirty dishes on our table for quite a while. Also, we had ordered a New York strip and received a fillet instead. I will say that we didn’t realize the difference until we received our check. We thought the meat looked a little strange to be a Strip steak, but thought that was just how this restaurant cut the meat. . All in all, we would give this experience a C- and do not plan on returning
Love the menu changes and the live music. Not too loud and adds ambiance
We had, what we believe, the absolute best dining experience. Alicia is amazing and went out of her way to see that everything was taken care of. The food, the service, the experience was above and beyond all expectations. We will definitely be back and will most certainly request Alicia. She's the best!
Great! Loved the way our food was prepared for us. The dessert was delicious!
We were celebrating my son's birthday with his annual steak dinner with mom. The entire experience was great. Harry our waiter was amazing; he was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. We're looking forward to a return visit.
I have dined at Eddie Merlot many times, and like it overall.
But, this last time the filet had no flavor. Though cooked to perfect temperature, and meat tender, it did not taste like a good steak or a good piece of meat. My husband had same experience
Let me start out by saying the food was amazing but could be better if it was a little warmer.. the service however was terrible. Almost everything we asked for either took FOREVER, or we didn’t receive it at all unless we again had to ask for it . On top of that he would be in the middle of answering a question we asked or waiting for an answer from is on our order and up to three times he just walked away in the midst of conversation... I would definetely return to give merlots a second chance but would not recommend to anyone until I have a better experience.
Our first experience was awesome! We had a great waiter and the food was amazingly delicious! The rum brownie and ice cream was very good. Hit every taste buds! Took wife there for valentines!
It took over an hour and 45min to receive our entrees and the table next to us had arrived 30minutes after us and received their food before ours came to the table. I'm pretty sure they took advantage of my table because we were younger and thought we wouldn't complain. There was also no accommodation for the long wait or apology. Over-priced and overrated.
Had the valentine special bone in filet king crab Del Mar. Was really a great piece of meat and very flavorful. I have been here in the past and the only thing I would not recommend is their Sea Bass.
Oh and make sure to order the truffle tots as an app!
Nice atmosphere, French onion soup was delicious. But Bison Ribeye was average at best. More gristle than meat. Very disappointing for a $60 cut.
