Steakhouse
Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef and Seafood starts with U.S.D.A. Prime Beef. Only 2% of all U.S. beef is awarded this superior certification. Eddie Merlot’s ages the beef naturally to an unparalleled standard of tenderness and flavor. The chef then personally selects each piece for the optimum proportion of marbling, and texture, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender, and juicy steaks to your specifications. To seal in the flavor, the steak is flash-sear on high-heat grills. Eddie Merlot’s has created one of the hottest concepts today; the wine bar provides more than 70 wines by the glass and a very extensive reserve wine collection by the bottle. The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot’s boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

Favorite steak house in the area (better then the usual suspects). Steaks are always cooked to perfection! The location in a strip mall is a little inconspicuous, but it’s a very classy place with great food and service

We had a fabulous dinner for a very reasonable price. Appetizer was delicious, as was the short ribs. I had the meatloaf which was the best I have ever had!! The martini was so good, and the carrot cake was also a winner! We will definitely go back

I can’t say it enough but this place is my favorite place for Wagyu. I’ve been to every steakhouse in Scottsdale. And this is the place. Amazing. Plus the staff has always been great. Never a bad experience.

Steak was delicious and prepared as we had asked. Crab avocado app was delish and sides were good and tasty. Food could be a bit hotter. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Food was good and timely enough. Our server kept making mistakes and having to apologize. For example forgetting to put the order in for our side dishes. When the steaks were served, they got cold while we had to wait for the sides to be cooked and served. They should have been put back under heat lamps....and brought out a quickly appetizer. They were kind enough to comp the sides. After dinner chocolates were incredible!

Incredibly overpriced, this pretentious chain restaurant pretends to be a high-end steakhouse. I’ve purchased more flavorful, more tender cuts of meat at Kroger stores They must cater to corporate idiots on company expense accounts Buyer beware.

Even though I had made a reservation I still had to wait to be seated for several minutes. The food was just fair. The 4 ounce piece of steak that I ordered was about the size of a large cracker and was over cooked. To make things worse I had a waitress that was not helpful nor pleasant and I can understand why she was not in the main dining room.
I have had better experiences here but what you are charged for these meals is not up to par with what you get.

We went for the crab legs special Friday night. My boyfriend had a small filet with crab and shrimp. We split their cobb salad. The food was wonderful as is the case most every time we’ve eaten there. Every table was taken and that’s saying a lot considering this location seats a TON of people. It still seems intimate because they do such a great job of dividing the rooms! Here’s the negative... we had terrible service! Every time we’ve been there the service has been very attentive but Friday night .. not so much. I don’t care that it was busy. The manager should plan accordingly or not seat so many people. We waited 10-15 after we ordered our wine to receive it and she even tried to take our order before the wine had come... very tacky. After finishing our dinner, the dirty plates sat in front of us for 15 min then she didn’t ask if we wanted coffee or dessert. After coffee, we had the credit card laying on the table for another 15. Again, this is not the norm for this restaurant so it certainly was a disappointment.

Service was excellent. My waiter Robert made the dining experience as much as the food did. My steak was cooked perfectly. Creme corn is a nice change of pace from the usual spinach or asparagus. I was not a fan of the augratin potatoes I ordered, but I am not fond of Parmesan cheese which was a topping on this. If you are a wine lover you will not be disappointed. The wine choices are extensive. And a nice choice of other cocktails as well. This is nice place to,enjoy good food and ambience.

We went for my birthday, and I wished a happy birthday when we were seated, and given the all purpose birthday card. But that was it. It wasn’t even mentioned by our server.
