Steak
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 40 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.

Mac and Molly created a very nice evening for my family as we celebrated and thanked our Veterans for their service. Our two Veterans were treated to the Chef’s faves at no charge. We enjoyed our other favorites of French onion soup, crab and avocado salad, Eddie’s potatoes and for dessert the cognac brownie. The wine selection of Chimney Rock Elevage was a perfect pairing to our meals.
Thank You Eddies Merlot!

The manager who was on duty that evening never had the chance to visit our table so we could thank him. He stopped by the table near us and had what seemed to be a long conversation about why they offer the chef faves for customers who don’t want to pay for an expensive cut of steak. In my opinion, I would like to dine with my family at a nice restaurant with a smaller plate option that fits into my diet restrictions without sounding picky. Thanks for all the options on your menu. Even with our party of four and two Comp Vet’s meals we still dropped $400. Well worth a hello.

Steaks and Chilean Bass were all great tasting. Waldorf salad and Caesar Saadi we’re very fresh and tasty. Truffle fries, were great. Brussels sprouts were under cooked. Desserts were all great tasting. Cake serving size is huge. Very disappointed in service once the restaurant started to fill.

The staff were receptive and very easy to make a reservation with. It was an anniversary dinner and it was a little off in that the waiter knew it but did not throw a candle on the cake as asked and the table was less than desirable and I had asked specifically for a good table and when arrived we were guided straight to a table by the kitchen door. Not acceptable at all.

For this place to be steakhouse, something is wrong if you can't get the temperature right.
Both steaks were cooked wrong. The steak were taken back and fixed, but everything else on the table was cold once they brought them back. No manager, no apologizes and paid the full bill.

When your paying these prices, you expect the service and food quality to be at the same level and its not.

Nice looking place with great service, but the food leaves much to be desired. Lettuce had brown edges, shrimp were tasteless. The steaks were cooked properly but not as flavorful or tender as you would expect at a steak restaurant of this level. And it is expensive. Best part of the meal was their coffee, it was great.

We went to Eddie's for our anniversary and had a great time. Our visit occurred on a weeknight so almost no crowds which contributed to a very comfortable noise level. Food was great although my filet was slightly undercooked. We use Eddie's as special occasion celebration restaurant and have always been pleased. Look forward to celebrating other occasions

The kitchen has major issues. The New chef needs to get up to speed quickly as this isn’t the sort of place where mistakes are acceptable. Lots of kitchen mistakes.

Service is excellent!

My wife and I ate at this restaurant last Friday night. The wine and appetizer (spicy shrimp) were excellent and for our man courses, we order 2 filet mignon (med rare and med), lobster tail, and mashed potatoes. They brought 2 medium rare filets and we had to send one back. By the time we got my wife’s filet back, my filet and the potatoes were cold. A manager came over joking that my wife must have finished her food quickly because she had no plate in front of her. I explained that they cooked my wife’s filet wrong and he just said sorry and walked away.

Nobody offered to provide us with hot mashed potatoes or did they offer to bring my wife a new filet. When they did bring it back, it was a charred. I spend over $210 for a terrible meal. The worst part is that I emailed the Eddie Merlot customer service and the store manager and they did not feel it was important enough to respond to my email. We will not go back because at those prices, one would expect some type of equitable service.

My son ordered the fillet Del Mar chef’s choice & it looked like an appetizer. That was a poor choice for a man. He had to order a baked potato to feel full.The salad included was on a saucer size plate.
I had the cedar plank salmon which was a true entree & was delicious

We recently moved to Northern Virginia and tried out Eddie Merlot’s on Sunday night. While the food was very good, the noise level was so loud we had to practically shout to each other to have a conversation. Moreover, our waiter continuously tried to “up charge” every aspect of taking our order that it was very noticeable and annoying. It was a disappointing experience. We won’t be back.

Timm (with 2 “m”s) made our evening so memorable. We decided Sunday on Labor Day weekend that we wanted a “steak-house” steak dinner. We did just that at Eddie Merlot’s. Starting with great cocktails and oysters - we were off to a great start. Next we tried the tuna on the salt block, which was very good. Got a very nice wine recommendation from Timm and we ordered a strip steak and my husband got his favorite - the bone-in rib eye. Both can out perfectly prepared. We tried their cauliflower and Brussels. Cauliflower was the star. Had a greatl time discussing dining with Timm. Our first times at this One Loudoun location and we will definitely return.

Food was excellent. Service was sub par - especially for a restaurant of this caliber. All we had were salads and steaks and it took us 1.5 hours. Gave I with dessert and coffee as it seemed to take the waiter 15-20 minutes between check ins. Very disappointed - especially with the deliciousness of the food!
