Beautiful, upscale restaurant! The food was wonderful, the carrot cake was as big as my head!! The guitar player was wonderful and played to the kids so well. Our service was the highlight! Absolutely top notch.
Wonderful food, service, and ambience. Definitely a go to place. Govert goes that extra step to make your dining experience special.
Been a number of times. It is not cheap, but worth the splurge
As always, Eddie Merlot's n ever disappoints. Our steaks were done perfectly, one of us ordered the arctic char and it was excellent, and the cream corn is unique enough to bring us back.
The bone in filet was on the salty side, It was definitely not worth the price. It tasted like a regular filet. The banana fosters was missing the rich taste and the brussel sprouts were undercooked. They have a guitarist play through the night that I really liked. I wish I could say better things.
wonderful food- first class meat done just right- maybe a little pricy but worth it! I love this restaurant!
Always a wonderful experience. Food is exceptional and with a delicious twist to traditional dishes. Thasanos our server was extremely responsive to our needs with privacy. Experience always exceeds expectations.
The steak trio is worth trying!
This was a phenomenal experience!! Don, our waiter, was the finishing touch. The steaks were cooked perfectly and not too heavily seasoned. The Lobster mashed potatoes were delicious. We will definitely be back!!
We try to make it here at least once a year for a special treat. this time it was our anniversary and it was worth every penny. This is a high end steak house so plan on spending accordingly but the food is delicious, the service is outstanding and we love the atmosphere. ?The wine list is phenomenal, the waiter said they have anywhere from 600 top 800 bottles on hand at anytime.
They also went above and beyond for us bringing a complimentary dairy free dessert for our anniversary, she is dairy intolerant which was a nice treat. They also honored a special price that was on an email I received that was for their Scottsdale location but gave us the special anyway. Now that's customer service. We will be back again!
Disappointed by the slow service - over 20 minutes between appetizers & entrees and we waited another 15 minutes after dinner plates were cleared for the check. The decor in the dining room felt dated. Also, the room is quite loud. The strolling guitarist felt awkward and only added to the volume. Then again, we might not have noticed the decor & the musician if we hadn’t been waiting so long...
Nice wine list.
Appetizers of crab cocktail & onion soup were good. Steaks were delicious and the side dishes of creamed corn and truffle fries were quite good. Portions are generous and perfect to share. The food plus 4 glasses of wine & tip was $250 for the two of us.
We retired to the bar for a cocktail after dinner. EXCELLENT selection of whiskey and very nice service. The atmosphere in the bar was much quieter & fat more appealing.
For my money, I would rather dine in the bar or choose another steakhouse for the full service dining room experience.
With so many restaurants in the area to choose from, it’s hard for one to truly stand out, but Eddie Merlot’s absolutely did! We were extremely impressed with our meal from appetizer to the dessert and coffee. We both ordered fish and it was the freshest I have eaten in this area at even some of the priciest, high end restaurants. The service was also excellent. Our server was personable and very attentive. This is a DEFINITE repeat!!
Date night for me and my Wife. It was great a little nosy next to the kitchen but it was a great time and great food and wine.
Thank you for having us.
The Wine and food never disappoint. The Staff are smart, extremely helpful, but not hovering. The live music makes the entire ambiance impeccably comfortable and elegant.
If you go here get the appetizers and salads but skip the main courses they are generally poor to fair.
Went here for Valentine’s Day, service was great. The food on the other hand was decent at best. The steak was not worth the money and the salmon was dry.
Excellent food as always. Although even fir valentines , the food took a long time. About 30 minutes between appetizer being gone and dinner arrived.
We love this resturant!! Great food, great staff!!!
The steak and all of the food was excellent and only surpassed by the service from our waitress. She was attentive when we needed attention and let us alone to enjoy the evening.
We had to wait 20 minutes for our reservation. Hostess was rude. The manager finally helped.
Food and service great but prices too high
Exceptional. The only slow down was the bus crew was overwhelmed and didn't keep ice water filled, and dessert took a bit to get delivered. Everything else was very well executed.
Great steak and very good service
all of our meals were not prepared as ordered-- the three meat dishes were under cooked and one was then returned and returned too well done. Our server disappeared after the order was placed. we had to ask another server to help deal with the meals that were sent back. while the issues of the orders were the kitchens fault our original server never apologized or took responsibility for his lack of service and followup. The manager was very helpful and apologetic. I was very pleased with his quick response and how he handled a very unfortunate kitchen situation and very poor service which shouldn't happen at any restaurant especially one charging the prices this one does .
Fantastic steaks. Great waiter.. Govert.
Beautiful environment. First time we have been there...won't be our last!
Service started out excellent and as the restaurant busy it got worse and we felt neglected. The point of two servers is to ensure this doesn’t happen however we never even met the second server.
Food was excellent
Ambiance was great
Overall, great experience.
Service was outstanding! Not cheap, but a great dining experience!
The service and the food was outstanding. Our family celebrated a special occasion and it was all of that! The menu is large and diverse. We did not go wrong with any of our selections.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Chateaubriand for 2 by the fireplace.
We made reservations to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary on 2/2/18. We had requested (and it occurred) a table by the Fireplace near the Bar area and the ambiance for the evening was perfect for us. I had lamb chops and my wife had the filet - drinks were great as usual and the food and service were terrific. With all of the restaurants available in the Naperville area this one is our favorite and this visit confirmed our preference.
enjoyable evening out guitar musician is very good, sat next to fireplace on a very cold nite a nice touch.
I'm all for blowing a couple hundred bucks on fine dining, but the restaurant needs to deliver on the value. Eddie Merlot's didn't deliver a meal commensurate with the price.
Started with the jumbo shrimp cocktail appetizer because of its handmade, fresh horseradish sauce. The sauce was closer to ketchup than spicy cocktail sauce. Try St Elmo's in Indianapolis if you want great cocktail sauce.
Next came the french onion soup which was a bit too rich (ie, cooked too long) for my taste. Should have been a bit more broth-like.
Spilt the enormous iceberg salad into two for two people and it was just the right proportion.
The filet was quite good.
The lemon drop martini was terrible. No booze and too much syrup.
Overall, ok dining, but for the price, won't be back again. Too many other options available to visit there anytime soon.
The food wasn't that great. Especially for the price. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
Perfect service, great wine and steaks. The staff is friendly and efficient and make the whole experience enjoyable. We didn't want to leave. The guitar player (I think just Fri & Sat) does a wide range of fun songs and came to our table for requests. Great fun for a couple of couples.
Service was slow and our steaks were all under cooked but the food was still good and the manager was great.
This was the best first experience I have had at a restaurant ever! The staff was amazing! Very friendly and welcoming! I will definitely come back!
If you want an excellent meal with exceptionally great service then go to Eddies you will not be disappointed!
Great place for our anniversary. I have also been for meetings and other fun times when getting together with buddies. An amazing experience only a few minutes from Naperville.
Ted was absolutely wonderful! He had great recommendations and my husband throughly enjoyed Elk. Also recommended a wine I would not normally pick and it was fabulous. Thank you for making our night out so wonderful Ted!
We were celebrating a friend’s birthday. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The preparation of the cognac brownie was very fun. We will be back!
