As a restaurant holding itself out as a fine dining establishment, Eddie Merlot's makes promises on which it does not deliver. The issue isn't bad food or rude service. It's that both should be much better considering what Eddie Merlot's purports itself to be. Eddie Merlot's has a significant value problem. Food: The food was good enough. I had a... More

First and foremost, I received excellent service here, and I want to emphasize that point. The rest of the experience, however, was average at best. I started with oysters on the half shell- disappointing. Plated in such a way that most of the liquor had run out onto the ice, and served with a lot of condiments, which in hindsight... More

I've been going to Eddie Merlot's for years now. Always had a great experience with quality and service except for the last time. It use to be almost every table had a assigned server all by itself. At least it seem it. My last visit the new server was assigned to us and we were celebrating an anniversary. The server... More

Excellent time to go without the weekend crowd. Started out by great Valet Parking crew, then to the greeting crew, then the many waiters. Food explanation is top notch and the whole wait crew is very well trained and concerned about the customer service. And, oh yes, the FOOD: fantastic selection and variety of choices from the best steaks to... More

Incredible dining room experience. Sampled some top shelf select bourbons made into delicious old fashioneds. I had the filet mignon with bernaise and chilled crab legs with mustard sauce - all very good. Surprised the side dishes were so good-Mac and cheese was not garlicky as most other restaurants do. It was somehow light, not heavy, actually very good. Also... More

High end place with beautiful decor. Service excellent (waiter Michael). Food almost excellent BUT two of us had half dozen (supposed) blue points to start although these were the smallest oysters I have even been served and @ $4 per oyster it felt like a ripoff. A good kitchen staff would send word back to the table that their oysters... More

I really enjoyed my steak. Cooked to perfection! The cream corn is really good as is the macaroni and cheese. Nothing is over seasoned! I have eaten in some of the other restaurants in the area this week and I enjoyed this one the best. Nice atmosphere and extremely good service! Very friendly staff. Hats off to the manager!

This was an excellent dinner! Service was outstanding (thanks John!). He was knowledgeable, sincere and provided great advice on choices. Had a good sense of humor and timing--always there when needed but absent when we were meeting. The steaks (a ribeye and two fillets) were done to perfection. The sides were also fantastic--macaroni & cheese, potato and a vegetable--were also... More
