Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef & Seafood - Ashburn
Lounge: Opens 4:00 PM daily and closes one hour after the dining room
Overpriced for the quality of the food and the service.
We were two couples and we really enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent and the food was too! It was Sunday, so there were selected wines 1/2 off list price, we took advantage of that and had a nice bottle of wine with our dinners. We will definitely return again soon.
Beautiful restaurant, super ambiance, amazing food! All of the staff attended to our needs without ening intrusive.
Terrible steaks - all overlooked.
Food was delicious! The service was outstanding. The coffee crusted steak was juicy and delicious. Save room for desser as the Granny Smith dessert is amazing.
The food was excellent and our Waiter John was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the wine selection and had some great suggestions on the menu.
The decor looks like an upscale Cheesecake Factory. The music was early 80s, which felt a bit weird to be honest. As we were seated, Debbie Gibson was loudly playing. My husband’s steak was supposed to be medium and although it came out pre-sliced it was rare at best. I had fish so I kept eating so it wouldn’t get cold as he waited for a replacement dish. This is known as a steak place. Not getting it right — after you slice the entire piece of filet — shouldn’t happen. It meant that we each awkwardly sat while the other ate on their own. It put a damper on the experience. Our waiter also removed all of our glasses by mistake so when he went to bring our wine and water he pulled them off of another table in front of us. He also came back to check our menu after he forgot which wine we ordered. It just seems like a lot of missteps for a meal that was that expensive. We will stick to eating in the bar at happy hour if we come back.
Great food, very good service. It is a nice establishment, and the prices certainly deserve a nice atmosphere, so it can be a bit disconcerting to see some patrons come in wearing inappropriate clothing (short-shots, flip flops, etc.).
Everything was amazing.
Great Food, Great Staff
My husband and I just enjoy this restaurant. Very friendly staff and always excellent food.
Food was good but pricey. My wife's filet was overcooked and the waiter was very proactive and recommended a new steak which was nice.
Fantastic meal. Beats other higher priced prime steak houses.
Manahttan was good and the steak was cooked perfect. I'll be back next time I'm in town.
We are never disappointed with the Eddie Merlot's at One Loudoun, particularly when we sit in Mark or Tim's sections. These two guys understand the formal dining environment and really add to the experience. When I get treated this well, I enjoy every bite of my meal and tend to make room for the great coffee and desserts.
It was wife’s 50th birthday celebration. The food was superb and the service was oitstanding.
it was my son’s 30th birthday and you made it a special evening! Food, Service, and our waiter made it a great evening!
Eddie Merlot’s has so far not disappointed. We have dined there almost five times. We enjoy the steaks and seafood...and of course the chocolate cake.
While it was father's day, the restaurant did not look overly crowded. After ordering, we waited at least 30 minutes before our waitress stopped by to tell us our food was still coming. A good 15 minutes later, our food arrived. My friend's steak looked good but mine was overcooked. I didn't send it back as I had waited long enough. I had also ordered the shrimp wrapped in bacon. The shrimp were overcooked and the bacon was undercooked in places. It was my birthday dinner and I was so excited for a good meal. Perhaps my expectations were too high but I was incredibly disappointed with both the food and the service?
Late, the waitress, was especially attentive.
This was a wonderful dining experience. We were celebrating Father's Day, and my husband is a steak connoisseur! He was very impressed with the meal and the service. It made his Father;s Day very special.
Very disappointed. Two of our three meals had to be sent back multiple times and the kitchen could not cook our Filet's more than rare. I know everyone has a different concept of 'doneness' for their steaks but when you ask for medium well and it's served rare- 3 times- that's just not right. Having the meal comped was okay but it ruined our 'special' Father's Day dinner.
Celebrated our anniversary with them on June 16th. From the anniversary card upon arrival, to the wonderful service, to the manager’s attentiveness and jumping in to help ensure efficiency to the delicious food and large portions, we were pleased. Will be back!
We went to Eddie Merlots for the first time Saturday to celebrate our 33 Anniversary. Our appetizers and desserts were very good. Out entrees not so good. For a restaurant that advertises themselves as a Prime Aged Beef & Seafood restaurant, the beef was not very good. I ordered A filet, medium rare. There was nothing medium rare about the meat I was given. it was definitely well done. My husband order short ribs and they too were way over cooked. Not sure we will give them another chance. The prices are high and the food just not to good.
Alex was a great server! Steak, lobster mashed potatoes and asparagus very good. Excellent wine menu.
We were celebrating the birthday of one of our group, and in every way, this was a special meal! Our friends, who had not been to Eddie's, were very pleased and plan to return. Grilled romaine was outstanding, the filets are truly memorable, and the yellow fin tuna entree drew great raves. The service matches the quality of the food, and the decor is elegant , yet inviting. Can't wait for next time!
The food was just ok. The bread is the best part of the meal.
The onion soup was outstanding as usual and my bison tenderloin was tender and tasty and perfect. will get it again there.
Simply Awesome! We were celebrating my son's graduation and my 14 year old daughter's promotion to high school. I thought they would like to experience a fancy restaurant since there isn't much room in the budget after paying for hockey, dance, crew, our home and all those other crazy expences we Loudoun parents endure--and I do it on my own!
My daughter loved it but my son is a simple young man...he just wanted a burger. Our waiter Dan overheard our discussion and presented him with a "special" menu that had a burger on it! Without prompting! THAT'S SPECIAL!
It was a wonderful way to mark the end of my son's childhood. Thank you, Dan! Thank you Eddie Merlot's! The food and service was top notch and well worth the experience! Pam, Jordan, Madi and Granny 😍❤
We had the Chateaubriand for Two. It was cooked properly, but I felt it was lacking in seasoning (e.g., need a little salt).
Food and service we’re outstanding. Our server was attentive to all the details. Really nice wine list with close to fifty selections by the glass. We loved it and will be back.
We had a lovely evening at Edie Merlots celebrating our anniversary. The bartender, our waiter and the manager couldn’t have been kinder to make our evening special.
All around excellent dinner. Great, too-notch food and service spot on! Highly recommend. Get dressed up for a dinner out.
Service was excellent, steaks and sides delicious, but disappointed with size of lobsters for the price. Otherwise very enjoyable evening.
The food was outstanding, and I really like the fact that they offer "wine samplers" that give you a chance to try some new wines. In fact, I fell in love with one of the reds!!
Had a wonderful dinner with friends at Eddie's! We all had the Prix Fixe menu which includes first and second course plus dessert. Great selections and we all left satisfied. Steaks and seafood were excellent.
They treated us very well. Good experience. Will return.
Biggest disappoint was the mediocre service. Waiter was unenthusiastic in serving us, slow response: We had to ask for bread and even dessert menues. We expect better service for such high prices . A;lthough the reservation allowed us to indicate this was a special ocassion, it was not acknowledged by the staff. We have no desire to celebrate special events again at this restaurant.
Love the restaurant! Please continue to keep the kids out!
Their cooks really know how to cook a steak to perfection. Service was excellent!
