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.

Nice place with good food and wine. Staff including manager friendly and accommodating. It has to be a nightmare trying to run a restaurant during these Covid times but they do it well

My wife, Cherryl, and I have been going to Eddie Merlots for some time now and during our last visit on Tuesday it was - as usual - a great experience. We both enjoyed the Kobe steak and, of course, their great cocktails. As far as the service goes I would, if I could, rate it way above the top rating of five. All of the servicers and food handlers were extremely friendly and helpful. I will end this review by telling everyone to give Eddies a try and I know you will become a repeat customer. It's fantastic.

AWESOME experience for our first visit! Our server Halley(sp?) was incredible!
We had a variety of different meals - and ALL of them were flavorful, perfectly prepared and really yummy. We enjoyed the bison steak, salmon, crab legs, brussel sprouts and potato o' gratin and all were perfectly prepared. The creme brulee was the best any of us have enjoyed - not too sweet, enough crunch, and a nice smooth texture.
Definitely will be back as the food was great and our server was one of the best!

The dining room was elegant and the experience was comparable to other steak houses, but we’d attempted several times to make reservations and they were always booked before. Naturally, we anticipated a higher level of satisfaction. The service overall was excellent except - the bread came out long after the drinks and our side dishes came out as we finished our entrees. Thank

I have always had a great experience and delicious meal at Eddie Merlot's and this time was no exception. The Filet Del Mar was cooked to perfection and came with a scrumptious crab sauce. Our server was delightful and provided great service as did all of the other servers who attended our table. Eddie Merlot's is one of my favorite restaurants.

I made my reservation at least three weeks in advance and informed them that it was a special occasion and they sat me in the bar. The bar isn’t very special and it’s very noisy. Our waiter was very matter of fact and not very interested or caring. The food is good not great and with so much competition in the restaurant business I think there are plenty of other fine dining establishments to go to.

Enjoyable evening. Didn’t expect from a steakhouse but their Spinach Artichoke Pita Chips Appetizer was the best we ever had. A bit hot (pepper) yet delicious. The only negative was my filet was not hot when served - barely warm. They seemed a little short staffed but nothing that would keep us from returning.

We had a fabulous experience at Eddie Merlots. For starters we had the grilled romaine salad. Try it!! It was the best salad I have ever had! Grilled but not wilted with a slight smokey flavor topped with
Bacon strings.We both had the Filet Oscar...med rare was perfect med rare and the crab absolutely amazing.The dessert is a must! The creme brule is traditional but the Chocolate cake was a real winner! A lovely find!

Overall an excellent experience! I had the crab and corn bisque, which was excellent. Then the 7oz Filet Mignon for my main course. Also outstanding. And for dessert, I had the carrot cake. It was unbelievably great!!! Honestly, it was probably the best carrot cake I have ever had in my life! Our server was great and the place has great ambiance inside. I would highly recommend Eddie Merlot's to anybody!

Outstanding service. Very nicely decorated restaurant. Excellent food. Went for AZ Restaurant week. Great selection on the pre-selected menu. Others ordered from the regular menu. All of us were pleased. One small drawback-they don't have a dress code so the crowd varied from well dressed to just out of the gym look.

We had dined there previously with not the greatest experience. We decided to give them another chance as everyone deserves another shot. The food was excellent, the menu choices were plentiful, the value for the chef's menu was great and the service was very good and with a smile (we think so behind the mask at least, LOL). Thanks for changing our minds. We will be back!

My wife liked her filet but mine was dry and lacked flavor. It was overdone.
I don’t like sending food back because the person I am with Eats alone then I eat mine alone!!

We had family visiting us and we are seasonal residents. We had been to Eddie Merlots several times before, once was for a friends birthday in February. Service was exceptional at that time. This time, it took a while to get drinks. Everything after that was acceptable, as food runners brought bread, salads and our entree. Our server as nice but not really on top of things and wasn’t sure of the prices of both the specials offered that evening. (Friday 9/11/20) Maybe she had too many tables as she was serving all the tables on the inside room that owned to the outdoors, off the bar. Food was perfect in every way.

I have been to Eddie Merlot’s in the Chicago area and it is very nice. The one in North Scottsdale was a big disappointment. It is located in a strip mall. The entrance was the same as the neighboring stores. The decor was OK but not what one would expect for a high end steakhouse. Most disappointing was the food. We had a rib eye steak and crab legs. The steak was barely warm and the crab legs were cold. When the manager walked by to ask how the food was, I said it was OK. That seemed to satisfy him and he smiled and thanked us for coming. OK is a pretty low bar with so many great steakhouses in the area such as Capital Grill and Mastros Ocean Club.

I'm a regular at Eddie Merlot's, usually weekly. I have never had a bad meal or been disappointed. The entire staff is excellent and always tries to satisfy mine and my guests wishes, no matter how small. The facility is immaculate and staff always wear masks. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
