Came here for my 15 year wedding anniversary and was so far beyond worth it. Food was to die for. Service was impeccable. The servers new menu inside and out and gave wonderful recommendations. An actual signed card by entire staff saying happy anniversary was a wonderful and thoughtful touch

It was just an ok experience overall. The waiter didn't really go above the minimum required and the food was just ok for the price.

Service and food were excellent. Portion sizes were bad. Had a $200 bill plus $40 tip and would’ve left still hungry if not for the massive piece of chocolate cake for dessert. The only portion that outdid its price. But I’d still recommend and I’ll be back.

The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. The garage was full and we saw no valet parking so we had to drive around to find someplace else to park.

Our wonderful waiter, Armindo, helped to make our evening just perfect. We visit once a year to have the amazing wagyu steaks and we were not disappointed. The coffee and carrot cake for dessert is something we look forward to, as well. Thank you for a great meal and even better customer service!

Food was phenomenal, our server Tracy was fantastic. As a female, I am surprised that after our meal in the rain I was handed my keys and expected to maneuver my car out of a pile of parked cars bumper to bumper.

Our waiter Aramindo (I hope that’s correct, he was Portuguese) and he was beyond excellent. My family doesn’t do fine dining often but I took them out for a belated Mother’s Day dinner and he was very patient and so great at reading the table, just impeccable service all around. Sadly I was unimpressed by the meal. Both my grandmother and I had a filet with peppercorn sauce (she had the trio) and it was very strong and spicy, overpoweringly so. Eddies potatoes were bland and appeared to have little to no seasoning, and the Brussels sprouts were still very hard in the middle, not at all like charred ones I have had elsewhere, even the bacon in that dish was undercooked. For what the meal cost; the food should have been better but that is what you get with chains. My family enjoyed themselves and the incredible service made the experience worth it!

All around our experience was terrific. We were there for Mother's Day and everything was great. From our Server, Matthew, to all of the staff, the experience was the best. Great food, great quality, and again our server was spectacular, he was so attentive and had a fantastic personality. I would highly recommend Eddie Merlot's without a doubt.

The service and food was second to none. Staff was very friendly and management stopped at our table a few times to interact with our children and even was nice enough to give them a free dessert which they loved. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Although we have enjoyed this venue in the past, this visit was sub-par. Service was terrible, we even had to ask for bread 3 times and could count the number of times we spoke with our waitstaff on our hand. The steaks were cooked well but our seafood plate had a hair in the food.

It's very over-priced for what you get. I frequent many other fine dining restaurants downtown and can get the same experience (apps, entree, wine, dessert) for less. Also, the website needs to be updated as the one entree we wanted and returned to this restaurant for was no longer available though it was on the website menu. The food is very good, but there are so many other fine dining restaurants in the city that we can go and spend far less for the same level of quality and service.

Eddie Merlot ‘s is the best steakhouse we have ever visited and we have eaten there at least 3 or 4 times a year for the last several years. It is our celebration restaurant. The filets are divine, always prepared just as requested. The shareable sides are scrumptious, especially the truffle fries and creamed spinach. The wine list is great with many choices in all price ranges. The servers and all staff are gracious and there to make your dining experience perfect. I was there in March with a party of 14 including 5 children and felt the service was the same caliber as when we dine with another couple. We love this restaurant.
