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!
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.
Great food as always. Enjoyed our waiter Tim. Will definitely return.
Steak was good but not great.
Eddie Merlot’s used to be one of our favorites, but it seems to be sliding. Food was just ok and service has taken a hit. Disappointing.
Took my wife there for Valentine’s Day. We were seated promptly at the time of our reservation. First impressions count and my first impression was that the server was grouchy. My idea of a professional server at an expensive restaurant is that they don’t just take orders and serve, they engage diners in pleasant conversation about the wine and food, adding tremendously to the enjoyment and value of the meal. Our server would have none of that, she wanted to take orders and get out of there. She was snappy and dismissive of my attempt to discuss the wines. She was all business and that was that. Not at all like other fine restaurants I’ve dined at. Now I’ve always wondered about their Wyralah beef that is soo expensive and should be correspondingly soo good. So I ordered the fillet and lobster tail with the three digit price tag. I mentioned to her that last time I had a tail at Eddie’s the butter was only half melted and I hoped it would be hot this time. She got somewhat defensive but I felt I should mention it so my tail wouldn’t be spoiled again by cool butter. When I received the Wyrlah fillet I was very surprised to find it over cooked, chewy and rather tough. It was like they had slipped in a piece of lower grade beef. The server sensed my dissapointment and asked half heartedly if I wanted another steak but at that point in the meal I didn’t want to wait for it and who knows if it would be any better. The server did become a bit chatty after she had delivered the check and I was contemplating the tip. There must be a word for this in the restaurant trade.
Now admittedly it was a busy evening but I don’t think a fine restaurant should lower their standards on busy occasions, they should limit the number of reservations to the number of guests they can comfortably accommodate.
We had a wonderful time and meal for Valentine's Day. The Bananas Foster was great.
Very nice.. the food was excellent.. really liked the menu options given to us as well
