Best restaurant in Lake County !
It took the waiter too long to come to our table initially, but after that the service was good.
Food is always great. The addition of steak tartare to the menu was a great surprise.
The service and ambiance was excellent as always. The steak was not the normal great meal we receive. Flavor and tenderness were underwhelming which wasvery different from our past experiences.
Went there to try a new place and my fiancee and I loved it. Best food and service we have had in a very long time. Great place for a romantic dinner. As you can see the food was perfect.
Great experience with Valet
Front desk forgot to come get us in the bar for our reservation but that’s ok
The food was not as fresh as hoped
Chose Eddie Merlot's for our restaurant week selection this year, as we try to visit different restaurants as much as possible. Our experience was very good. The selections on the prix fixe menu were excellent as well as the service. A very large wine room stocks a wide variety of wines that would satisfy everyone. We looked over the regular menu as well, and plan to return in the near future to sample some of the other cuisine from this menu too.
We enjoyed a wonderful birthday meal for a dear friend at Eddie Merlot; the food, the service and the overall value were suberb. The group will return for more of the same and we will all be looking forward to it!
Relaxing, excellent service and food.
Excellent dishes cooked to perfection. Our chateaubriand was medium rare and quite tender. Steak tartare was excellent. Outstanding service from Daniel.
The food was priced high and the service was lackluster at best. We were there early on a Saturday night too.
Very expensive for what you get. The cooking method tasted like the steak was right off a backyard grill, i.e., tasted like something I could do myself. Conversely, the flavor profile at Ruth's Chris or Fleming's (two suburban steak houses) is truly unique, and comes across much more professional.
Service was also sub-par. Our (finished) appetizer plates were left on the table for fifteen minutes. The waiter never filled our wine glasses, nor water. Lastly, our reservations were very early in the evening, yet they gave us a terrible table in an empty dinning. I will not be returning.
Fabulous service and delicious food, as always.
Outstanding food and service at a great value. Enjoyed the half price wine and Filet and lobster special. The food was exceptional and the service was world class.
Sunday specials were great value.
The food was exceptional. The Prime aged ribeye was flavorful and cooked to perfection. The waiter was a bit too enthusiastic to the point of seeming fake, but she was attentive. The ice cream was also delicious.
Eddie's has become one of our favorite Restaurants, and continues to deliver consistent quality, taste, and service.
We arrived 30 minutes early and took advantage of a few of their signature cocktails in the bar.
Keith was an excellent server (as usual), and the Wagyu Steaks are among the best cut of beef that we have ever eaten. They were cooked perfectly. The wine list at Eddie is also excellent, albeit at a very generous markup relative to Binny's or Liquor Barn pricing. The carrot cake was so generously portioned, that our party of three had difficulty finishing it.
Delicious meal. We had different salads, Caesar and burrata (yum!) and steaks (filet trio was superb) and it was all good. Our server was attentive and friendly. The manager was very nice but stopped by our table more times than necessary. We were happy customers so that was perplexing. Will be back again.
This restaurant was Simply Amazing! Best date night ever!
Great food, service wasn’t as good as normal
This was our second time at the Lincolnshire location and the service both times was fantastic! The calamari appetizer was not the best as there was a lot of breading and not the best flavor, next time we will stick up the tuna tartare! Everything else was fabulous. The Yellowfin Tuna and the Sea Bass were great and good size, nice salad, tasty Brussels sprouts and best part was the free birthday(Hubby's b-day) creme brûlée! We were stuffed but wanted to lick the bowl!
We are a frequent diner here. Always a great go-to spot for us.
This is becoming my favorite place to go for a very relaxing and romantic evening. The food is excellent the service is outstanding and the Ambiance is elegant. I would highly recommend this place based on all of the above.
Food was okay and was not served warm enough. It was Valentines Day but the dinner took over two and one half hours. Not enough attention from the server though she was nice when she did check in. An okay experience that might make for a nice dinner out on a non- holiday. Average value for the food. Too many better steakhouse options given the hour drive.
Excellent food and waitress.
We had a very nice Valentines Day dinner at Eddie Merlot’s, the service and food was great!
Made online reservations for Valentines day and had to wait an additional 30 minutes which fine I understand it was a busy night. The waiter was terrible. brought our meal along with bread and drinks all at the same time. then after ordering the pound of king crab legs he brought out a ball of unmelted butter thinking that was ok. the problem was they were way over booked with not enough help. very disappointing. The manager did take my crab off the bill.
I have never complained or written a bad review. Ever! But tonight was a disaster. Waitress was aloof and couldn’t handle the few tables she was caring for. Bus staff never cleared our table and never watered our glasses. We ordered appetizers and main course selection all together to help make the waitresses life easier and they brought all the food out at the same time. Not what we intended. Asked for more bread, never came. Asked for them to clear our table, never happened. Finally we got up n walked to the front in order to just pay and end this madness. Sorry guys but you need some training in food service and multi tasking. Won’t be coming back and that’s a good thing!
Very slow service. Took 50 minutes just to get salads. Food was average at best. Have gone to Merlot’s several times and it has gone down hill each time. Will not go back.
Had a great time. Tim,Miguel, Candance were awesome
My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous meal for Valentine’s Day. Nico, our server was fantastic, we had the ‘Steak Diane’ cooked to perfection with all the important sides. Outstanding.
Dirty Knife at my table setting when I sat down. Higher end restaurants don't make this mistake, but it foreshadowed the bad buss service that was to come.
Sauce for Pork was horrible - just a very strong taste that did not pair well with the porkchops. But the porkchops themselves, along with the garlic mashed potatoes were excellent. The salmon was cooked well but they used the same sauce as the y did for the porkchops and poured it all over the salmon - which made it taste less than desirable - almost ruined the dish. The brussel sprouts had a savory taste with the onions, bacon, etc. - and were very good.
Their desserts looked amazing, but we were stuffed and couldn't even try one.
Overall I give them a C+ at best. The buss boys never filled our glasses with water and they were very slow to remove dirty plates and glasses. Our waitress - Courtney - basically had to do everything by herself and she was simply fantastic. She always made up for the lack in buss service with a smile and warm conversation. They're lucky to have her. We will go back and try dessert as long as Courtney is there to serve us.
Overpriced, steaks not cooked as requested, woody asparagus, Eddie Merlot potatoes were soupy (may be the way they are suppose to be).
Server was great.
We were there to celebrate a birthday and the food was delicious. I loved the presentation of their desserts.
Felt like having a great steak and this is my go to place for that.
We were pleasantly surprised by how good every aspect of our meal and service was. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Love the place - beautiful decor and wonderful atmosphere. Enjoyed sitting by the fire place in comfy chairs. It was my birthday, and while the card was a nice thought, a coupon for a small percentage off or free appetizer on the next visit would have been an inexpensive but nice gesture, especially considering the prices pay there! It’s a good business practice and makes the experience of a special occasion that much more special and memorable.
Great experience I will go back
We’ve been here several times but we were a little disappointed this time the steaks seems smaller than they used too, but the biggest disappointment was the creamed corn. This is always been our favorite but the portion seemed a lot smaller and I just didn’t wow me tonight .
Food was good, great atmosphere. And great service.
