The best veal chop I've had in a restaurant. Tempura asparagus is excellent. Service was good on a busy Friday night.

I wish the food matches better with the place and the price. The sea bass was fine, but the steaks are not quite at the level where the price are.

We love going to Eddie merlots but this was the first time we felt the service level drop and food was just ok. There were a number of times we had to remind server for drinks and food. We came for my husbands birthday-we never did receive his dessert. We had friends that had never been to a Eddie merlots and felt disappointed that the service we received was below average.

While visiting the area for a wedding, we sought a place to have a hearty meal with outdoor seating. Eddie Merlot's offered us that and more. The Philly-raised hostess greeted and seated us with wonderful spirit. And our server Laura (as well as the other members of the wait team) ensured we felt welcome and catered to the entire time. The menu offers an array of wonderful meats and fishes and has an extensive cocktail and wine menu. Dinner was capped off with a peanut butter cup style dessert that helped ensure we were more than satiated. This meal was a real treat!

We came to celebrate our 43rd anniversary, this was our 9th visit and in the past we had always had Abdullah as our server, we really loved him and was sad to hear he had left.

We had Scott this evening and we enjoyed him, he’s very knowledgeable and friendly.

It was a little disappointing that your restaurant doesn’t acknowledge milestones of your patrons, even a menu with Happy Birthday or Happy Anniversary goes a long way to give the personal touch that your restaurant cares.

Delicious meal. Our server Scott was outstanding. Hard to believe it was packed on a rainy Tuesday evening and Scott went above and beyond to make sure all of his guests were well taken care of. Tempura asparagus is amazing. Filet was cooked a perfect medium rare. Carrot cake is a MUST.

The staff is very friendly and the service was impeccable but I wish I could say the same for the flavor of the food. I was expecting out-of-this-world flavors for their prices but it was a let down. The filet mignon was not tough but it was bland and did not melt in your mouth (Red Lobster was much better). The shrimp tasted fishy, the peppercorn sauce was a bit bland, and the blue cheese for the salad did not have that kick. The dessert was good though and the presentation was very cool. Maybe the chef had an off-night but it was too expensive to gamble for a second try.

The rating reflects my disappointment in my food. The crab cakes were not made of jumbo crabmeat as expected and were too mushy. Both the scallops and shrimp were overcooked and the rice was swimming in butter. I am not likely to order seafood here again if I return.

We asked for a quiet table when we made a reservation as it was our anniversary. We were offered the front table neat to the front door and by a kitchen door. I asked for another table and the hostess give us the next table over. There were several better tables that were unoccupied while we were there. The appetizers were good as was the service to that point. Then a party of 10 energetic young people were seated next to us. Our server had to focus on that large party and we became an afterthought. I cannot fault people for having fun but it was impossible for my wife and I to communicate and we were nearly ignored half way through our meal. The main courses were good if not exceptional. My wife ordered dessert and we left without eating it due to the noise level. It was an bad experience.
