I can’t think of one thing our server, Gordon, could improve upon. The food and service was so good that we’re returning in two weeks. The only complaint would be the noise level. The people at the table next to us were extremely loud. In Europe the Americans are known for being too loud and I agree with that sentiment. However, the food was excellent as well as the service. We will return many times. Our new favorite restaurant.

Another great meal at Eddie’s. Great selection of wines by the glass - try the Quilt Cabernet, it was excellent. This time I had the bison ribeye, which was phenomenal.

Service and surroundings were excellent. Staff knowledgeable. I am not a beef eater therefore did not appreciate the food as much as someone else may have. Sea bass was tasty and cocktails were spot on.

I ordered the wagyu ribeye and couldn’t tell the difference between that and a 20 dollar Kroger ribeye. I’ve watched tons of tv and was really looking forward to it, but had grizzle in it and wasn’t as tender as I believed a 100 dollar steak to be. Oh well

Lovely dinner in bar area which was a bit loud. Service was excellent but I had a hard time grabbing the waiter so we could pay the bill and make it to our show. I will budget more time next time.

Thank you for wowing our guests with coffee.
Dinner as always was amazing even though we went simple with the filet Del Mar and a bison filet. Mac n cheese and Brussels are always perfect sides. Anything with bacon is amazing. The cinnamon bun alamode is always a good finisher to share.

The food was very good for the most part. Medium steak was a bit overcooked, but it wasn't a big deal. The waiter was very nice, but he paid a lot more attention to a larger table, so since there were only two of us we were put on a back burner. We had to wait for quite a while to place our orders while other table (that had already received their food) was getting all of his attention. I do understand that that table offered a much higher tip potential, but there has to be a middle ground where everyone gets a reasonable amount of attention.

The lobster Mac n cheese was so flavorful and creamy. The service was outstanding and the atmosphere was perfect.

I have to say our server was more then great and the food was very good....however, ambiance is extremely important too. I requested outdoor dining for my party of 6 in my reservation. We were seated, on a beautiful evening, inside, at a table behind the entrance/hostess desk, in a DARK section of the restaurant. When I asked why we were being sat in the dark and not outside I was told there were no tables to accommodate 6 people...humm, I made a reservation a few days ago...you folks cant plan ahead. The restaurant has a huge section with large windows, you would have thought that if that were true, management would have made the effort to reserve our party a table in the " windowed " area at the least...but no, we sat on a beautiful evening in a dark section of the restaurant. Food was not that great that I would choose to stay and dine in the dark again when there are so many great alfresco options in Pittsburgh. I only reserved at Eddie Merlo because it was close to our venue...the Arts Festival...I'll walk the extra block to the Market Square restaurants next time.

We ate at Eddie Merlot' for the first time about two months ago and had a delicious dinner. I was really looking forward to eating there again. I was very disappointed. The food was awful. The salmon was under cooked and the salad was scrubby. I can't believe we had two such different experiences at the same restaurant. I hope Saturday was just an off night for them. We spent $130 for a meal we didn't enjoy. I won't be returning any time soon.

Tha ‘All you can eat King Crab Legs’ was a great meal to celebrate our Anniversary. The Crab Legs were delicious and plentiful. However, our idea of King Crab Legs was not the same as Eddie Merlot’s. They were on the small side, however, you can eat as many as you want. The Scalloped potatoes were outstanding! Fresh bread was delicious. And the Cinnamon Roll with vanilla ice cream was a delicious way to end the meal. We each had a flight of red wines, which was pretty good for the price. Service was spotty! As the evening got busier, we did hardly saw our waiter. A Manager finally took our dessert order and had our table cleared. We were in no hurry, but we did sit around for awhile. The Restaurant is beautiful and despite being crowded, the noise level was low. We enjoyed the evening and would go back and try a Steak!

Came back after an aweful Xmas eve dinner there and we couldn’t have been treated better. Staff was amazing and absolutely made up for the prior experience.
I do think the steaks have a ways to go to compete with Ruth’s Chris tho.

Value is the true grade. Simply wasn’t there. Seated someone in our anniversary reservation after telling us to wait at the bar. Just an accident but should be noted. Food over priced. Good but not anywhere near what’s expected in that price range. We had a decent time but not by the means of the establishment.
