    Ladies night out! Me and my bestie enjoyed ourselves! First time for both of us. The only problem I didn't like was the blue cheese and bacon on my steak wasn't creamy it was so dry!

    Food was spot on delicious! I eat steak well done and an eight ounce filet was perfect with no burning of the meat whatsoever. Sides and apps were amazing as well. Gave a four star overall because we had to wait for our ICE wine to get cold.

    We had a fantastic experience at Eddie Merlot's. The waiters/waitresses were friendly, considerate, and very helpful with questions regarding the menu. Our dinners were made exactly as we requested. The seating was ideal to allow private conversations and a nice view of the city. Extremely impressed.

    Everyone from the greeter, hostess, waitresses well wonderful. The food was great but the mashed potatoes and potatoes were not the best I had (mashed potatoes needed more seasoning and the cut potatoes were hard, dry and no seasoning) but everything else made up for it

    We were very excited to go to this restaurant, but found the overall experience quite disappointing. Our night started off strong with great appetizers in the form of bread, salad, and crab bisque. All of these were fresh, well-seasoned and quite delicious. Our main dish was a 6oz filet mignon and salmon. The filet mignon was cooked well, but tasted rather bland. The salmon was similarly well-prepared, but unremarkable in taste. The sides were also rather lackluster. The dessert, carrot cake and chocolate cake, was unfortunately something we could not finish. It felt like we were eating blocks of sugar, and the texture was too thick and moist. Lastly, our server did not provide us the minimum respect and attention that we would expect from a normal restaurant, much less a high-end place such as this. Based on this experience, we would not visit again and would not recommend to our friends and family.

    Just got back from a dinner during restaurant week. Overall, I was not very impressed with the meal. It started off on a bad note when three of the wine glasses had to be replaced because they were dirty. Even though the table was set for four I was told that no one was supposed to be seated at my chair???? Before the meal we were shown the meat plater which displayed all of the various cuts that were available. It was a great overview of the steak and lobster choices. We started with the corn and crab bisque which was very tasty but served at a little above room temperature. All four in our party had the filet mignon, mashed potatoes and broccoli. Once again, the steak was warm at best, (ordered medium) and the potatoes were on the cold side. In addition, my wife's steak and my daughters steak looked more like an end cut of the fillet rather than an actual filet that we were shown on the meat platter. The steaks were flat and not well formed and were more of the shape of a flattened burger rater then a prime cut filet. I have seen the same cuts at the Giant Eagle meat counter and have been told that even though they do not look as appealing they taste the same. But Giant Eagle sells these cuts at a discount due to the appearance. However, they both thought the steak was not as tender as another local steak house we ate at last week. Glad I did not pay the going rate for the meal but maybe that is what to expect when you get a discounted meal. They also seemed to be in a hurry to get us out since were not offered coffee at the end of the dinner. The staff was also very quick to clean the table when any one person finished their plate even when others were still eating. If you are looking for a good steak dinner this would be closer to the bottom of my choices,

    We both ordered Ribeye’s. My steak was wonderful. My husband’s was tough and chewy. They took it back and cooked him another one. It was from the same cut. It was exactly the same way. For $69 it should have been perfect. Was too embarrassed to send it back a second time. By the time he got his food I was done eating!! It kinda put a damper on our expensive Anniversary dinner!!! Taking a few dollars off wasn’t the fix!!

    I eat a lot of steak. And, being from New York, I am a bit of snob when it comes to steak and steakhouses. Without exaggeration, the bone in rib eye I had at Eddie Merlot's was the best steak I have ever eaten. Everything else was fantastic, as well. Our server was a delight. The prices are lofty, but for a special occasion I cannot imagine a better choice. Thank you.
