Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef & Seafood - Louisville
The ambiance is a little stiff. Our waitress was as well...prefer someone a little more pleasant and who can carry on a little banter to lighten the mood. The food overall was just ok. My filet was good, the sides were not at all impressive which was disappointing to both of us. I felt like the value of the food was not on par with what we got. We both agreed we would not be back.
There are not enough stars on here to give this experience what it’s due!
BDR aka Robbie was outstanding from his manners to his magnetic personality! He even scraped up the crumbs!!! We loved the filet and crab legs and the scallops were off the chart...... but ROBBIE was the cherry on top to make this evening so wonderful! We will be back someday!!!! Hope you realize what an asset BDR is to your restaurant! Love him!! Thanks again! Kevin and Janie from Santa Claus, IN
We ordered 2 steaks, one of them you didn't have had to be substituted. They were both ordered rare with a warm center but were both cooked noticeably different.
Maybe only if in a group setting ?
It was our anniversary and we were sat at a 4 top instead of booth. And the table behind us was super loud. We were there early enough to sit somewhere else.
Food was ok - potato was cold ? Shredded lettuce for salad was odd.
Lastly, my husband ordered a bourbon not really sure what he was getting and the waitress knew we didn’t want to spend a lot on a bottle of wine but brought him a $54 shot of bourbon ?? Just feel like she should have asked before serving something so expensive. We were shocked when the bill came. Don’t get me wrong we knew we would have large check but that put the icing on the cake with everything else.
Our server, Carla, was great!
The restaurant is beautifully decorated too.
My husband and I only wished that some of the other patrons would dress appropriately for such an upscale establishment.
We are Platinum members and usually the food and services provided are excellent. However, our last experience had issues. We sat for at least 20 minutes with just ice water as we watched others who arrived after we were seated, served beverages and bread. That was basically the theme for the night. Everything took much longer than it should have. The Parmesan fries were cold and dried out. My sister’s chicken was so tough that she had trouble cutting it. I wanted to send it back, but she didn’t want to wait on another item to be prepared. The sautéed mushrooms were also disappointing. On a bright note, the Sea Bass was excellent. The dirty dishes were cleared promptly.
We will return, but unfortunately it was my sister and brother-in-law’s first visit to Eddie Merlot’s. I don’t think they will be open to dining there again.
Food and service were outstanding. Great meal. Had the best Maker's Mark Bourbon I've ever had there and it's only available there.
Always have a great experience as far as ambiance, and service. We really love Eddie Merlots.
This time everything was great accept the food. The 10oz Waygu New York Strip was half gristle. And not for to eat. Sad for the price.
But the dessert was amazing, and my wife’s Fillet and salmon was great!
Both ordered chef’s special, which were outstanding and even accommodated my special request for a smaller filet. The waiter suggested a wine for me that was perfect for the surf and turf. Cannot day enough wonderful things about this restaurant, as this is always our go to when we are in town. 5 stars💗
Had an 8PM reservation, arrived 15 mins early to the hostess stand. Hostess failed to look up at us when we checked in. She told us we would be seated closer to our reservation time, even though we could see there were multiple open tables. We went to bar and at 8:05PM, I saw the hostess that spoke to us walking down the street. I walked back to hostess stand and informed new hostess that we were not called for our table at 8PM. She looked over her shoulder at a group of tables that we noted were open when we arrived and said our table was available. So, I went to collect my wife and pay our bar tab, both bar tenders were turned away from guests looking at their phones. After waiting a few mins before they noticed we were waiting, we payed our bill (no offer was made to transfer tab). We walk back to hostess stand and now there is another (3rd) hostess (2nd hostess now nowhere to be found after only 3-5 mins), I again share that we had an 8PM reservation, she again looks over her should and says our table is ready and walks us to a table. We waited for 7-10 mins before our wait staff came to table (again, many tables were open), but we seemed to be an after thought. I had to ask three times for bread for our table and our steaks were less then good. They were...OK. And the Brussel Sprouts were ok...Wife said the wedge salad was good. I’ve been to the restaurant in Columbus, OH on several occasions and had wonderful experiences. This location provided a very poor experience.
It was ok. Very friendly staff. Food was ok nothing special. We were sat in the corner with a view of the inside of the rundown building.
The portions for the entrees were relatively modest, but the portions for the sides were in fact dauntingly large. We had both steak (bone-in filet) and seafood (Alaskan king crab) and both were perfectly cooked. Believe it or not, I recommend reducing the size of the side dishes...
Beautiful bar area with friendly ,knowledgeable staff. Food was outstanding as well as the service. A little noisy as your in tight quarters. I would definitely recommend.
The spinach salad was excellent . The steaks were cooked as ordered. The meal was excellent and what you would expect for the price. The service was superb. My wife and I enjoyed our dinner and will return.
The staff was amazing. The man that took care of us was super helpful with drinks and food selection. We did not feel rushed. We were able to enjoy our last night in Louisville with an amazing dinner.
Excellent food as always! Rebecca and Heidi were tremendous taking care of our party, friendly and efficient!
Good food and drink. We sat in the bar area which wasn’t as nice as the dining room but other than that everything was excellent.
Excellent quality food, especially the steaks. Our server was outstanding and made sure we were running on time for our theatre seats that night too.
Our party of 3 dined at Eddie Merlot's after attending the Saturday matinee performance of Hamilton on Sat. June 15. We planned to take advantage of the prix fixe menu of 3 courses for $39, it was the last day it was offered. We arrived earlier than our reservation, and enjoyed a cocktail in the bar while waiting on our table. The bar area was very nice and the drinks were great, a bit pricey though. Our meals were delicious, I was the only one who chose the special, I had Caesar Salad, a combo small filet and salmon, both prepared perfectly and served with some delicious sauces underneath, my dessert was a HUGE piece of strawberry shortcake, which was absolutely delicious! My daughter had the New Orleans Mixed Grill and her husband ordered the Prime Bourbon Ribeye, they were both raving fans! Our appetizer was the Ahi Tuna Poke, not my thing, but my daughter and SIL devoured it quickly!
The waiter and all the staff were wonderful and the ambience was perfect. Will definitely return for a special occasion!!
Friend in from out of town and took kids 15 & 10 yr olds for 1st time, waitress was wonderful with kiddos and adults and was outstanding!
Very disappointed. Ruth’s Chris much much better. This was expensive and I will never go back. Nice atmosphere but steak less than expected and not good
The food service is on par with the value. Our goto place.
Jacob & Yoni were our servers. They were both extremely engaging! Food was excellent & service was superb!
Penny & Lea
Steaks were great
Great place for a business dinner with clients. Great food and great service from Grace. Easy please to have quiet conversation.
Restaurant is a nice restaurant and we had eaten there before, but this time the service was lacking. I ordered a mixed grill with crab meat, shrimp and filet medium well. The steak was rare to medium rare, the four shrimp were very small and the small amount of crab meat was mixed with some type of sauce. The server never came back to check on the food / steak until she came to pick up the plates when everyone was finished. I showed her my rare steak and she was going to take it back to have it cooked more but everyone else was finished and ready to leave. She never told the manager or chef and just brought us the check. I was very disappointed in the amount, quality, size and preparation of food and the lack of service for what was a very expensive meal. I doubt if we ever return.
Our server, Alexander, was excellent!!!
Eddie Merlots is one of our favorite places. We had some problems with the service in the past but thought we’d give it one more try. Happy to report that this visit was great. Service was good and at a nice pace (not too rushed and only a little lagging.) My steak was delicious!
We had a wonderful time. The staff were amazing. The food was excellent. The beverages were delicious. Everything about the restaurant was lovely. Couldn’t ask for a better evening. Try the bone in Buffalo ribeye it will change your life!
Excellent dining experience but unfortunately not a good valet parking experience.
Service was excellent and so was the food. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about what we wanted.
Great service and food. My daughter enjoyed her birthday party and we all had a great time.
Our first visit to Eddie Merlot’s, and our server, Bonifacio took very good care of us. Both of us had 4oz filet cooked perfectly- Bob’s was topped with crab and I had a side of salmon. Our Caesar Salad was the real deal, served with extra anchovies on the side. Was thrilled that the chef was not shy with garlic or lemon in the homemade dressing. We worked from their three course Pre Fix menu - and shared the strawberry champagne sorbet for dessert and brought the coconut cream pie home for later. A nice finish with French press coffee. Will definitely be back!!
Love the ahi tuna wontons! Service was great, nice wine list, good steaks.
We had a great time. Food and drink was spot on. Thomas our waiter was very professional with a personal touch.
Great food and service. Our waiter was very helpful and answered our questions . Would recommend to anyone .
There was a bug in the food, the waiter told me it was the time of the year. I don’t care if it is or isn’t the time of the year that’s unacceptable. I feel the matter should been taken more serious. The waiter had a nonchalant attitude about it. The quality of the food should’ve been better for the price. I feel I would gotten better food and a better atmosphere from a red lobster, Logan’s etc. I will let ever know you guys are overrated and over priced.
Excellent service and good food.
