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.

We always love to go to Eddie Merlot whether it is just my wife and I or with friends. On this visit we took three friends along and everyone was as pleased with the food quality, service and ambiance as we always are. We can trust Eddie Merlot for a perfect experience every time.

The service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. The restaurant took good safety precautions. Everyone was wearing masks, and the tables/seating were very spread out. It felt like a somewhat normal night out, which I think everyone is itching for these days. The portions were hearty - plenty of leftovers. We'll be back!

We asked for a medium cook steak and we got a rare stake. My sea food was overcook with burned toast.

Very nice. Good food. Little heartburn during bed time from the sweet and spicy shrimp appetizer.

Not very many people but we still were sat at (imo) a mediocre table. Host's poor seating selection was reflected in the tip.

Want us back? Try harder!

Been a while since we've dined out due to COVID, but we took a chance for our 12th anniversary. What a great decision. The experience was awesome, and our waiter Wayne was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The cocktails were spot on with the Kentucky mule and the Berry White martini, and all the food was solid. I had the bison ribeye... perfect. My wife had the scallops and shrimp...objectively amazing....and we split both the calamari and the tempura asparagus. We will definitely be back for another visit. Have a happy 2021!

I've never had anything but exceptional food and exceptional service for the last 3 years. However, this night was truly an outlier from their norm. Let me start by saying the waitress was phenomenal; she did everything she could to make up for the poor food. I had charred/burned steak filets when i ordered it medium well. The manager went to every table to check on how they were, except ours. It was very strange and especially on holiday night where you are attempting to have an above average night. It was actually my birthday as well. The waitress did everything possible to make up for this. I hope this doesn't happen again. Even my guests had bad salmon that was bland and overcooked. I'll definitely see if this is a new pattern. For now, I'll still refer this placed based on the years of good service and excellent food.

New Years Eve...group of six...Surf and turf was perfect. Cocktails, wine, meal, service all spot on. It isn’t cheap but you do get what you pay for! This is a place for that special evening!

The perfect place for a new year’s dinner. We had the steak and lobster for two along with splitting a wedge salad and the lobster mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious and prepared perfectly. We will definitely eat here again.

No worth the $$$. Steaks poorly prepared and the sides were basic. Cocktail served in a broken glass. Much better quality food and experience when we dined there a few years ago.

They had a great holiday special menu with elk, which is one of my favorites. Plus Oysters Rockefeller! Portions were gigantic. Bread was unique and good (so good I ate too much of it!)

Was specific that I was coming for my wedding anniversary and made reservations a week in advance but was stuffed into a corner next to a fire extinguisher. I most definitely will not return despite the good food and service, people pay good money to this establishment for ambiance.

We dined in the bar area and had hamburgers. They were great, however, the french fries were cold. Our appetizer did not come out but the waitress stated it was her error and gave us a free dessert. We have dined at Eddie Merlot's many times and will come back.
