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.

Last evening, we decided to splurge after a tough work week. We ordered the "Tax Week Specials" which were a 26 oz. prime porterhouse (me) & the 8oz. prime NY strip with shrimp scampi (my wife) - and were not disappointed. For sides, we had their garlic mashed potatoes and the tempura green beans with a wasabi dipping sauce. The food was plentiful, delicious, and beautifully presented. The ambience remains attractive & relaxing. Our server, Meg, was attentive, friendly, and courteous. All in all, a terrific dining experience - highly recommended!

Too loud. It seems like you can't decide if you want to be a fine dining restaurant or a sports bar

Service was slow. Appetizers arrived before our drinks. Waiter was constantly speaking to a server in Spanish about another table, multiple times during our dinner. I have had amazing waiters here before. Just not what I would expect from this caliber of restaurant.

We love this place. And will come again and again. But in full disclosure, the fillet steak tonight was a little overcooked instead of medium rare. I look for medium rare to be all the way to the edge. And it was medium center and almost well everywhere else. But it was so tasty, we didn’t turn it back. Everything else was perfect!!! The mashed potatoes, the Brussel sprouts, and the wine. And the staff took care off us as they always do.

Although the ambience is always excellent! I was very disappointed with my appetizer. It was acknowledged and I was given a free desert. Also the steaks were slightly over priced for what you get.

We enjoyed our Easter Brunch. Food was very good and our waitress was sweet.
The bartender was not as skilled with knowledge of pouring an expensive wine. Ordered a $50 glass of wine which was a six ounce pour. The waitress gladly added it was the end of the bottle so he poured out a little more. Not what we wanted to hear. He also poured all the sediment in the small carafe. She then poured the wine into our glass. My husband walked it back to the bar and had him strain the wine. He saw the sediment in the glass, washed the glass, left water at the bottom of the glass, and then tried to add the wine. We also ordered the endless Bloody Mary. I ordered one, asked for more tomato juice and that was the only one I tried to drink. Not your usual.
See you next time for dinner and will order the bottle instead to enjoy the wine.

The overall experience was great. Food was good (one exception was the oyster appetizer it wasn't bad, but it wasn't that good either). Chairs were comfortable. We were given a great seat near a fireplace. Music was on, but it was not overbearing at all -- we were able to have great conversation at our table. It's a little far from our house, but we wanted to try something new. If we end up wanting to head that far out into the country again we will be back.

The food from appetizers/starters to the dessert was phenomenal and worth the money. We had their Ahi Tuna Poke and it was so fresh and light. Then shared the Wagyu beef with Lobster tail and Eddie’s potatoes with wild mushrooms; this was out of this world good. The steak was cooked to perfection with correct temperature internally but a beautiful crusted exterior. The brownie with cognac sauce and ice cream was so amazing and was such a cool thing to see the cognac lit on fire before being put on the plate. The waitress did an awesome job with her exceptional service and on the dessert delicately putting the cognac sauce so that the brownie had a hint of cognac flavor but not overwhelmed.

Received an email for $10 cheeseburgers at Merlot’s and could not pass it up. Normally go for special occasions but this was just a casual hamburger but made with the finest ingredients. Service was still top notch. , good health protocols and the price actually met the ads. Not big bait and switch or up sell. I’ll be baack.

We have been several times, but this was not up to standard. The cosmo was not noteworthy and tasted watered down. The calamari was also fair and not flavorful. The wagyu ribeye and the filet were each very tasty, but way way too salty. And, the faucet water in the ladies room was scaldingly hot. Our waitress was wonderful. But, for the bill nearing $300 for two, it was an unmemorable meal, sadly.

We love dining at Eddie Merlot's. We took two friends to dinner to celebrate a birthday. We were in the back dining area and it was perfect (next to the windows). They've done a good job of spreading tables out for social distancing. The food was fabulous and our waiter was very accommodating. We brought a bottle of Opus One to celebrate the occasion and paid the corkage fee, but we've always been impressed by their wine selection. Highly recommend the oysters Rockefeller, steaks, sweet potato casserole and the carrot cake!

Food was a little off this time around. 2 of the 4 Steaks weren’t cooked properly and no Eddies potatoes due to a poor batch being created earlier.
