Poor service. Took over 20 minutes before we were seen by a waiter, and we were seated 15 minutes late after showing up 10 minutes early. Too expensive. Dress code not taken seriously.

We were celebrating a birthday and don’t think we would go to the expense in the future to celebrate another occasion. It was pleasant.

Excellent restaurant, excellent service, excellent food. We visited for my wife's birthday and everything was great. Our waitress (Tracy) was the absolute best, very personable, very knowledgeable of the menu, and offered recommendations for wines. The food was excellent although my steak was ever so slightly overdone, it was still delicious. The menu is al a carte and the prices are expensive but you won't be disappointed in the end.

Unfortunately the 2 of the filet mignons at our table were overcooked. The staff removed the charge which is appreciated but the evening became less special because of that. We will still be back. Because we know this was an exception.

This was the first time dining at Eddie Merlot's and the food was absolutely amazing. The only thing we ran into was two of the appetizer plates were dirty when we were first seated. We were told it never happens but my husband and I both had dirty plates. Other than that, they replaced them and as mentioned the food was amazing and the dining experience overall was a great fine dining experience.

From start to finish our experience was exceptional. Our servers Jonathan and John went above and beyond during the entire time we were there. Both were very helpful guiding us through the menu and answering our questions. We enjoyed the conversation with Jonathan as well,as we found out we both knew some of the same people. Spoke with Tom one of the managers as well and again enjoyed our conversation with him. If all of the staff is like these 2 then congratulations

Disappointing. Service was slow and we were not given the attention of a restaurant at this level. We waited for menus, we had to ask for bread, twice. Calamari had raw batter and was flavorless. Steaks were very good, but it seemed as sides sat in a warmer for 30 minutes waiting for steaks. Will not go back.

The decor and service are over the top. They have a varied menu selection which ranges in price and quantity of food. My dinner was delicious, the filet melted in your mouth.

Ordered three apps all three were poor. Tuna was indelible and how they sent it out with all the strings making it literally inedible made me believe they don’t care at all. Next was crispy sweet and spicy shrimp. It was neither sweet nor spicy and was one big glob of soft shrimp. Last was potstickers. They were ok. Lacking flavor. We decided after the chefs could care less in the food they sent out for the apps that were clearly poor that the meal was over Too bad was looking forward to it and was really poor Service was solid though

Our experience started out wonderful with our server Bobby who made great recommendations and knew the menu from top to bottom. Every course from appetizers to soup and salad to our entrees and sides and to finish dessert were amazing!!! I personally had the Bone in Filet and it was great along with the Wedge Salad. The atmosphere was very exquisite and we had an enjoyable time celebrating my Mother in Laws birthday. I highly recommend this for a special event or a fun night out you cant go wrong as both the food and service were over the top. Thank You

We enjoyed the meal, but two things:
The hostess tried to seat us at a table near the entrance and server station when there were plenty of great tables available otherwise. Ugh! Why?
We were held hostage waiting to pay the check. Again, ugh!

Had the 30 day aged ribeye. Best steak I ever had. Lobster tail was perfect and we also had filet mignon. Armando was an exceptional server.

The restaurant is lovely and it is a great lunch place for a special occasion . Beautiful atmosphere and quiet enough to be able to talk with friends . Our waiter would not check in for at least about 20 to 30 minutes . When my food arrived it was cold and completely over done .
None of the steaks we ordered were prepared correctly. Our client that was with us had recently had an organ transplant and required a well done steak for health reasons . His steak and another guest requested well but both came extremely rare . When we sent the steaks back it appeared they were not cooked again or attended too they came back rare and cold again . We tried to find our waiter but he did not return for at least 15 minutes . At their point we were just trading around steaks that were edible for our client . The steaks were good quality but just not prepared properly
Absolutely terrible customer service
The table side dessert was fun and the staff member was engaging

We have dined several times at this location without ever experiencing a problem. This past visit was disappointing due to the steaks being delivered incorrectly and not to the specifications. The main reason for our visit was a birthday celebration and that person had to wait the longest for their meal to be delivered. Once the new steak was served it tasted like it was char broiled. Definitely different than the other steaks on the table. The manager took the 2 wrong steaks off of the bill to make it right with us. That was appreciated, however it was not how we imagined our food experience to be. In addition, the creamed spinach was inedible due to the amount of salt it was made with. We were also not thrilled with the use of cumin on the candied walnuts for our dessert. I have never written a comment before, but thought it was worth mentioning. This review reads like there is an emotional investment because we do take dining out seriously and save up money to do so, especially for a special occasion. It will be a while if we ever decide to go back to Eddie Merlot's Pittsburgh.

My daughter and I were running late due to a business meeting, and technically got there when the kitchen would ordinarily be closing. It was my daughter’s birthday. Armando who waited on us was simply fantastic. He made us feel like the time was no problem at all, didn’t rush us and made us feel very welcome throughout our dinner. He is a credit to Eddie Merlot’s.

The filet mignon and the bison filet were excellent. We found our new favorite steak restaurant. The creme brûlée was the best in memory. The atmosphere was elegantly tasteful.

We plan to return.
