the soup was excellent along with our wine choice. but the wagyu steak did not impress us with such an expensive price tag on it. When it came out the look was the first thing that disappointed me. It was not as thick as most filets i have had in the past. it looked like a steak from a outback steakhouse commercial. The manager justified the situation by suggesting a different steak for next time and then said that dessert was on him. When we the got the check the dessert was still on the bill, we felt embarrassed but felt compelled to tell the waitress what the manager told us. I probably won’t return to give them the second chance with the other steak suggestion. I’ll stick to who does it right- Sullivan’s downtown Naperville.

My guests and I enjoyed the three course special that was being offered this month. The grilled romaine lettuce was excellent and hope that it is continued offered as an option.

Always excellent service by the staff who are well versed on the variety of offerings.

Eddie Merlot is a treat to enjoy.

Roumel is a great manager. He came by as he always does to ensure everything was perfect. It was as usual.
The food is great and the service impeccable! Best steaks in Naperville and far surpasses Sullivan's and Morton's in town.
The ambiance is great and a great selection of wines. Highly recommended

Eddie Merlots offers Easter and Mothers Day brunch. The food was very tasty and presented attractively. Serving platters were not large meaning they were frequently replenished keeping hot items hot and cold items cold. In past years they had live music, soft guitar music, absent this year. Desert options were a little lacking. Other than the brunches, Eddie Merlots is a steak house opening at 4pm. They are a excellent steak house.

Great evening out with parents for their anniversary. Our server Devin was AMAZING, so friendly and knowledgeable. The staff gave my parents a card and a special dessert for their anniversary - just above and beyond. The food and drinks were fantastic. Try the Berry White martini - yummy. You just cannot go wrong here.

We went for the king crab leg special (and the steak, of course!). We were welcomed as we came in. The waiter was attentive, well informed regarding the menu and wine choices and remembered us from a previous visit.

Our visit was all we wanted it to be - a quiet evening out in a special environment to celebrate each other.

The beef filet and the sea bass were delicious; however the portions were quite small. You had to add sides for an additional cost. The service was very good and attentive. Because the portions were small, we question the overall value of the meals. The decor is garish but interesting.

Ate in the beautifully appointed and very warm with atmosphere lounge area. Bartender who served me was wonderful. Regular and lounge menu were truly wonderful. This time I tried the cheeseburger with gorgonzola and bacon. One of the best casual menu items I have had anywhere. Presentation beautiful, taste was fabulous. Wines by the glass choices were also fantastic. Maitre D came by twice to check on me and make recommendations too. It was a pleasure on this second visit. There will be many more.

We were in the mood for steak and decided to finally give Eddie Merlot's a try. My first thought was that eww, the chairs are too low and I prepared for disappointment. I was wrong! We started out with the truffle fries as an app, then I had Filet del Mar and my partner had the New Orleans Mixed Grill. They were both cooked to perfection and the perfect portion. Honestly we haven't been out to eat in a long time because we've found we can cook a meal better at home than the majority of restaurants. This was the first time in awhile that we have not said "we could have made this at home".

DELICIOUS. Thank you for a wonderful date night, Eddie Merlot's!

Been there more than a few times and we like it very, very much. For this last visit, everything merits an overall outstanding rating from us. Our server , Ben , couldn't have been better. Our filet entrees were done to perfection and were outstanding. The manager came by to check on us with a degree of familiarity that made us feel welcomed and appreciated. On first approach, our server, Ben , did the same thing i.e. mentioning our previous visits, etc. Nice touch by both !

Devin was an excellent server, the food was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Everyone was friendly. The dinning room was a little chilly, so they seated us by the fire place where it was nice and cozy. It was a little noisier than I like, but they were quite busy for a Sunday evening.
All in all a great dinning experience.
Very expressive, but well worth it.
