    Ordered wagyu filet and ribeye. They were both burnt on outside. Filet cooked medium well, ordered medium rare. Ribeye was the correct temp or medium rare but burnt on outside. We actually question if it was actually wagyu. We also ordered an appetizer and salad those were fine. It was 50 minutes after our last plate was collected that the steak was served. Maybe they forgot it and fired too fast. Waste of great meat if it really was wagyu.

    Everything thing was pretty good. My filet, part of the New Orleans Mixed Grill, was not the best. Little bit of sinew in there, made part of a four ounce serving inedible. We love the Berry White martini and the Burnt Orange Manhattan. Had a bottle of Malbec, #2504, it was excellent. Howie, our server was very good. Ambiance is a bit lacking. Uncarpeted floors means noise bounces all around. Still we do like this restaurant very much and we will return.

    I was a little disappointed in the food. All my prior experiences, the food equalled the service; this time you missed the mark. My wife and I had the MOJO scallops and shrimp; the shrimp was overcooked and I didn't care for the flavor. Maybe it was an off night. The service was outstanding.

    My wife and I decided to celebrate our 30th anniversary and had a fantastic dining experience. Erick, our waiter, took great care of us by answering any questions and going above and beyond with his service! He also makes a mean banana’s foster and flambés like a #badass!! 10/10 experience!!

    This is the second time my wife and I have had the pleasure of dining here. We both had filet minion and shared a Mac and cheese. Both were to die for. The steaks were out of this world. Can’t wait to go back!!!

    The value for the food was not even close. My husband got a choice filet not prime but it was marked up to prime pricing. The dessert was overly huge and unnecessary. Our waitress was a little too loud and obnoxious, taking it upon herself to remove our childrens silverware from them because she didn’t want them playing with it. It was a bit noisy and hard to hear at times.

    Even though the place was 60% full, the server told us twice we need to hurry up and order because they needed the space. I have eaten in many fine places, but never had that experience. Food was very good.

    The food was excellent. Prepared just as we wanted. There was no rush as we enjoyed a preorder glass of wine. Bread was presented and order was taken when we were ready. Joe, our waiter, was very good. Described the specials, even asked if we wanted to see what they looked like. Suggested to my wife the steak preparation she desired and it came out as she liked. All in all, an excellent evening.

    My wife and I have gone to Eddie Merlot for special occasions for over 10 years. We've never been disappointed in quality of the food or the service. This is the first time I had their sea bass entree and it was excellent. It was prepared Maxwell style which made it even better and more visually appealing. My wife had the filet which was excellent as always.

    Only problem was we filled up on excellent appetizers and salads so we had little room for our entrees. The food was exceptional but we ended up taking home leftovers which hard be hard to prepare. We'll be back for soup and salad and hope to have room for dessert.
