    Our server, Ed, was fantastic and I highly recommend him! We will always be requesting him when he is available. The food was amazing as always! The Charbroiled Oysters were fantastic if you are a fan! And been a very long time since I had some awesome Banana Fosters for dessert! Must have!

    In the past 6 mths I’ve been here 3 times and each time is getting worse. For years we’ve eaten here and every time is perfect. The service stinks! The food is wrong every time and our sides came out 10 mins after our meals. Drinks were not great. This place needs to train staff and terminate average and poor staff. I’m sure the prices didn’t go down in relation to the food and service. Hey Eddie Merlots you’re acting like Applebees !

    Eddie Merlot’s was always our go to but since the manager, David left service has gone completely down hill! It’s very unfortunate.. the manager now has no idea how to run this awesome establishment… bring back David… you are losing the regulars!!!!

    A bit disappointed. The salmon was under cooked since my preference is well-done. Additionally, the salmon needed accompaniment so the horseradish sauce was best with it. The chopped salad was superb. The shrimp that was served with the filet combo was blistering hot…too many jalapeños? Would not order those dishes again.

    Everything exceeded my expectations. Buffet had an amazing array of choices. Buffet was fully stocked at all times. I was concerned with the no valet parking but the garage takes you straight into the building and no need to walk on the streets.

    We love Eddie Merlot’s for a regular meal, but the buffet doesn’t do it for us. Majority of the hot items we had were cold or barely warm, and they charge too much to be having cold food. We’ll go back, but we’ll stick to the regular menu from now on.

    Spending $270 on dinner for two is not over the top but I do expect the food to be served at the appropriate time. Our entrees came when we were not even half way through our salads. So by the time we got to the dishes they were lukewarm. However, the food was flavorful. Other than that all else was fine.

    Service and food consistently gone down for the last five visits I’ve been there It’s almost like work to get your food right and get your bill and be able to pay it There’s definitely a problem with this restaurant, and it is such a shame because it used to be a top-notch restaurant

    My wife & I went there for her birthday dinner. We had a very good meal with my wife getting the Ahi Tuna (rather than having it seared, she had it cooked medium) which was done properly. I had the blackened salmon which I had cooked medium rare. That was alco cooked just right. Our server, Ed, was attentive and prompt but not annoying in any way. They provided a complimentary dessert which was creme brulee. We didn't ask for that dessert, but it was what my wife would have picked. Done well!

    We are regulars at Eddie Merlot's and usually have a nice experience. Unfortunately, that was not true last night. We were seated at a table in the bar adjacent to the windows. It was so cold my wife and other women near us were wearing coats. Our service started out good, but quickly went AWOL. Three times in the last 45 minutes we were in the restaurant our waiter said he was going to bring me more iced tea. He never did. Our food was below average and some of it was cold. My wife and I ordered one dessert to share that took over 35 minutes to get to our table even though our waiter and the Manager knew we had tickets to the Symphony. Other patrons around us also expressed dissatisfaction with the food and service. The explanation we were given is that there were a couple of large parties in the restaurant last night. Apparently, taking care of those large parties was more important than taking care of the patrons in the bar area. It was a very disappointing experience.

    Our waiter was outstanding! We ordered ahi tuna wontons, husband ordered the king crab bisque, wagyu ribeye and baked potato. His only complaint was that his bisque had one small hunk of Crab meat. I ordered the trio filet mignon and was blown away at the portions and they were all fantastic, and the lobster mashed potatoes were amazing. They brought us out champagne and crème brûlée with a signed card for our anniversary, very thoughtful. Overall wonderful experience!
