I loved this place. The steak and Mac and cheese was out of this world. The service was exceptional. We tried the steak combo of the Fillet mignon and the New York strip. Totally worth it!

Went to Eddie Merlot's in Louisville for an early Valentine's dinner with the wife. Went on a Sunday evening, so it was not crowded at all, no wait. Was escorted quickly to our table.

Waitress was nice enough and admitted she was new. Tried a taste of a sweet wine, but wasn't sweet enough for my wife, so we both just drank water. Ordered the NY strip steak dinner for two, table side with two sides. They actually finish the steaks with a peppercorn sauce at your table, so that was entertaining. The flavor was good, but sadly the steak was disappointing. There was a considerable amount of fat and gristle with both of them. Side dishes were OK, but nothing special. Bread ended up arriving to the table after the steaks and the side dishes were delivered, so don't understand why it was delayed. We did split the carrot cake for dessert and it was amazing.

Final check with tip was $120. There was an unexplained up charge for one of the side dishes we ordered, which was a surprise to us. In summary, we didn't feel the experience met our expectations, based on the quality of the NY strip steaks we received at the price we paid. I would not recommend.

Overall, the staff in this place lacks the attention to detail to make it a great steakhouse. During our visit: 1) Fruit flies buzzing table when we were seated and during meal. 2) Server seemed somewhat disinterested overall. 3) They were out of Malbec on the night we were there. Unreal. 4) Steak (ribeye) was okay, but not what I was expecting. Not as good as Ruth's Chris, definitely nowhere near Jeff Ruby's steaks. 5) Bill came with a brochure for joining their "platinum club". Opened the brochure to find it had been drawn all over by some previous customer, which just sends a message of complete lack of attention to detail.

The food was okay. I got the trio of filets and the sauces were overpowering. My boyfriend had the bourbon ribeye which was phenomenal! The spinach and artichoke dip was delicious and so were the sides! Overall a decent experience. Definitely pricy but the quality was great!

Great food. Perfect service. The only complaint I have it that the champagne was too chilled and since this is a top brand champagne, it should be served at a proper temperature.
