I'll try to be brief. We had reservations for 4 at 7pm on a Saturday nite. We arrived about 5 minutes early after valet parking. We were seated at 7:22pm. I expect to pay twice what I would retail for a bottle of wine...here you can expect to pay about 3 times. We got the Chateau Montelana and it was... More

Went there to celebrate Valentine's Day and all of our food was very burnt besides the steaks that we asked for medium. Those were well on the rare end with blood still coming out of them. Will not be going back.

Was excited to try something new in the area - was kind of underwhelmed with the food in comparison to the way the restaurant presents itself. Felt kind of outdated

Was able to get away from kids for a very nice dinner. Servers were knowledgeable and professional, always asking what else they could do to make dinner better. My wife had the filet and I had the sea bass. Both were cooked to perfection and the bass was huge. Had family style sides (mac and cheese and potatoes). Both were... More

Dinner with 8 family members ranging in age from 18 to 80. Menu offers many choices for everyone with some raving about their steak and others enjoying planked salmon or crab stuffed shrimp. Side dishes are ample for three people and we were particularly impressed with the cauliflower au gratin. There are many table options for groups and we had... More

My husband took my son and I out to dinner to Eddie Merlot's. He had been there a few years before and said that they had the BEST steak he's ever eaten! We got there, and our server was great, no complaints there! We ordered an appetizer which was really good! So far so good, then they bring out our... More

Went there recently for a group dinner. Their steak is nice but really pricey. I can easily find a few better steakhouse in Boston that is cheaper. They also claimed their carrot cake "the world's best" but really nothing special. Wine on the other hand is the highlight of the night. They do have a good wine list that you... More

Ate here again but this time in the lounge. Every time I come to this place, I always see customers that the waiters/bartenders appear to intimately know. That goes for the dining room too. Those customers get showered with attention, and if you're not in the clique your service suffers. It's almost like it's some sort of neighborhood hangout. Having... More
