The food was wonderful. Enjoyed the steak and seafood. Definitely a place to go for a special occasion. While the prices are high, the quality of the food justifies it. However the service did not. Admittedly we were there during a busy time, but our waiter had a lot of responsibility and frankly he and the manager seemed to pay... More

We asked the Chef if he would prepare for the four of us a steak Diane, as it used to be offered on the menu. He kindly accepted. It was simply fabulous, the best we ever had, with four delicious sides. The flaming finish at our table, thanks to the Manager and a very professional waiter, Bruce, deserves our congratulations.

I've been here several times for business dinners when visiting the area. The restaurant is in a non-descript mall, but the inside is very stylish. The food here is excellent, no one I've ever been with (typically a group of 15-20) has had a complaint about anything. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.

Eddie Merlot Burr Ridge – the non-descript exterior does not match the beautiful, elegant interior with it’s stately columns, decorative glass light fixtures, contemporary art work and glass enclosed wine cellar. We ate in the open lounge area which is great for casual dining and/or cocktails by a fireplace. The service was excellent, food and presentation amazing. A little pricey... More

Scott was a fantastic server and the food was wonderful. We had a great experience. It was so nice to just relax and not be pushed into a quick meal. They were totally at our pace. All of the food was presented beautifully and the flavors were fantastic!!

I had a good overall experience dining here. I thought the staff was very professional and our server was very polite and did not rush us through our meal. I ordered a filet medium rare and thought it was properly cooked. If you want a relaxing place to sit ask for the Chardonnay room. The chairs are really comfortable.

A good overall choice for a luxury dinner. Eddie Merlot's runs the standard steakhouse menu of appetizers, salads, steak and a wide variety of sauces and accompaniments. The appetizers were very good and of a reasonable size to share. The steak was excellent- i had a bone in filet mignon which was massive but perfectly cooked to medium rare and... More

we had 7 people for a birthday dinner and ordered many different meals. Two filets were undercooked and one was overcooked. Additionally, the parmesan truffle fries were nothing special at all. The broccoli was plain and boring. The restaurant is very overpriced. Everything is ala carte and ridiculously expensive. This was my 3rd and last visit to this restaurant.

With an expansive wine list and food to match - Eddie Merlot's is a great place for a girlfriends night out or date night. Make a reservation because the wait can be long! They also have a great little gift shop you can bring wine accessories home! A fun and unique experience!
