Food was average either over cooked (steak) or under cooked (shrimp app). Only redemption was the carrot cake. Second average meal and only reason returned was having a gift card. Unfortunately I will not be returning.

I was deciding between Ditkas and Eddie Merlot’s. Unfortunately Eddies won. It took 3 tries on 2 steaks (bison and filet)and still failed miserably! The lobsters were Luke warm at best and the butter for them , just melted, not hot. If it weren’t for our server Cindy and Tom the amazing manager it would have been a complete fail! Thanks for saving my birthday,Michele and Fred

We've been to Eddie Merlot's a number of times and always had a good experience. Not so much this time. My wife ordered her steak medium well. It came rare. By the time they cooked like it should have been, I was almost finished with mine. No comp offered. Can't wait until the Carleton opens back up.

Everything we ordered tasted amazing. Everyone’s steaks at the table were slightly under cooked than what was ordered so if we went back I was clarify what medium done is for our liking.

My wife and I were out for a celebration. As part of that celebration, my wife had made a separate request to celebrate my birthday and new job. Unfortunately, the staff ruined the surprise (not once, but twice) by advising us that we were here for a birthday when we checked in and then again when we were seated the hostess stated we were there to celebrate a birthday and new job. My wife informed the hostess it was supposed to be a surprise. She apologized but then even after that, the birthday and new job were not celebrated.
Once we sat down, the service was poor. On numerous occasions, we had to wait long periods of time to order new drinks. My wife ordered a glass of wine with her meal and the server forgot to bring it. He caught his mistake later and brought the drink after dinner. He did apologize and said the glass of wine was on him, which was appreciated. However at that point, we had our share of bad service. My wife and I left disappointed and as a result, we will not be back.

When talking about the full experience, Merlots has to come to mind! Our service was Mike and he was nothing more than Excellent, truly made us feel special. Allowed you know he loved his job, was attentive to the highest degree. I would go back be request him again. This man deserves to be praised because he doing work that we overlook in our society every day! The food was just incredible from our appetizers, the barbecue shrimp wrapped in bacon to the prime rib streak!! Everyone was awesome!! Great drinks, would highly recommend the Kentucky Mule!!

I was surprised to hear the same chefs made our food on 2 different occasions but one was perfect & our most recent experience was horrible! Our Steaks were over cooked although we asked for medium rare they were brought to us well done, our lobster tails were charbroiled overcooked & tasted like rubber. We sent our steaks back & your staff was unapologetic nor accommodating. By the time our steaks came back everyone else at the table was done eating which ruined our meal. My sons cheeseburger sliders came out as one large burger & I wasn’t informed of the Change being that he’s 2 he would not eat the extra large burger! Your servers were not friendly nor personable. We had to ask for salt pepper drinks 2-3 times. We were told buy the service manager we would need to pay $1800 for parties greater than 6 to sit in private dining although I had a party of 9, three of which were children as I explained to her & she had no concern although less than a month ago I dined with 10 people at my table. Out of all the fine dining restaurants in downtown Pittsburgh I have never experienced this. Due to this experience I will never return Nor recommend Eddie Merlot

An absolutely fabulous meal! The best carrot cake in the city! Plenty of social distancing and precautions in place. It was our first meal inside a restaurant in 7 months and it was clear that the staff was working hard to create a safe dining environment! Definitely going back again soon!

Felt very comfortable from the time I checked in w/ hostess, all were wearing masks, our table was distant from others, thank you. Our server was outstanding, friendly, attentive. Food was delicious. Rated ambiance low only due to a private event (wedding) held in a nearby room, realize of course restaurants must make $ now more than ever on such things but our table was right in the path to exit restaurant and/or go to restroom so there was a lot of foot traffic and a member of the wedding party was rude to us and accused us of speaking about them and offending them. They were wrong and we tried to explain that but they stormed off. Not much restaurant can do about that but if I return , I would ask to not be in the path of a private event like that, people tend to think they own the place where my friend and I spent a great deal of $ there that night too (happily, all food & wine worth it). Just because a private event is booked doesn't mean they own the place.
