    Élodie Merlot’s is a very good place. The children place is attractive. The food is very delicious, the waiters and waitresses do their job well, the receptionists are superb. I was very satisfied to discover this restaurant with my date.

    Wonderful place for a quiet, outstanding dinner. We visit on our anniversary every year and have never been disappointed. Ambiance is great, food (both quality and selection) is the best around. Service, service, service - those that work at Eddie's know what excellent service is and provide it to every customer. Highly recommend and it will continue to be our "go to place".

    Bison filet and ribeye are great! High protein and low calorie. Everything else is average for a steak house. Super buttered and salted. Meal was good. Simon our server seemed mentally somewhere else. He first blamed it on being busy, but as his tables cleared and didn’t get re-sat, he remained neglectful of our needs (basic) like water for our table and a drink for our 4 year old that didn’t come until half way through our meal. We actually only come here for the bananas foster and he didn’t quite prepare that right either.

    I would had given the service 5 stars, but unfortunately we had a small hiccup, no one came to take our order until my husband mentioned that we had not had our order taken after 20 min. However, the manager stepped up, took our order and gave us our dessert for free. Even if he hadn’t given us the dessert free, he acknowledge the issue and he himself handled it which was greatly appreciated. I consider this a small hiccup for us, but this could be huge for someone else, so that’s why I’m mentioning it, but overall everything was great! Max became our server and he was awesome!!

    Eddie’s food never disappoints. The only negative this trip was the service was a bit slow. Getting the table cleaned off between courses was lacking. We had to find our waiter when we wanted coffee and dessert.

    This was a really nice experience. We had been to one of your competitors last week and your food in particular was so much better. We liked having Jared as our server. He was very respectful of our desire to have a leisurely evening but was always there if we needed him. Eddie Merlot's is our favorite restaurant when we want to have a special evening. Thanks to all from the hostess, other servers and folks clearing and serving plates. Everyone seemed happy to be there. We had a great time.

    We love the chop salad at Eddies. We hadn’t had it for over two years. It wasn’t very cold and wasn’t as crisp as normal. Prices were extremely high. We do like Eddie’s but feel that 17.00 for a Manhattan is excessive. Also our favorite side the hash browns had been removed from the menu. We will try again but are not as enthusiastic as before.

    First time visiting this restaurant. Food was delicious. Service was great. We had a small issue with a steak that was over cooked but Joe, our server, quickly set things right. He brought out an extra side while our steak was being prepared, and even sent us home with two desserts on the house. We were seated near a large party (bachelorette or birthday party from what we could tell) which made it VERY loud in the back of the restaurant. This unfortunately did not provide for the more intimate dinner we had hoped for, but we will definitely return in the future.

    When we walked in the hostess was on the phone and did not look up to greet us. I thought oh this is not going to be good since it was not busy at all but then another hostess walked up and greeted us and took us to our table. She was very nice and knew we were there to celebrate my husbands birthday. Eric our waiter came right over. He was super friendly and very familiar with the menu. He had great suggestions for us! The food and drinks were amazing! Everything was delicious including the cream brûlée which they treated us to for my husbands birthday! Eric was a top notch waiter. Honestly one of the best we have ever had. We will definitely go back for another special occasion!

    Not the best steak I have ever eaten that would be Tony’s of Indianapolis. However it was good seemed like a casual but trying to be upscale. Seemed over priced for what it actually is. I highly doubt I would come back.

    Wait staff and manager were amazing. Food was mostly good, but we used to come here and have great food. BBQ Shrimp Appetizer was very disappointing. It was overcooked shrimp wrapped in undercooked bacon. Maybe just not for me. I took a bite of it, and the bacon strip unrolled and was hanging out of my mouth. I thought it was gross and felt sorry for anyone who had to see that. I don't drink wine regularly so I just asked for recommendations of a good red wine. Our server came up with one that I enjoyed. My wife had a sangria. She enjoyed it. It was well made even though it was an off menu item. Salads were good, but there used to be a salad with green apples that I just loved and is no longer on the menu. The chopped salad I had was good but not spectacular like I remember that other salad. Also had a lettuce wedge. This was very good typical steak house salad fare. We had 2 filets for dinner. In the past they had a nice flavorful crust on them - but not so much this time. In the past, we probably ordered med-well. This time we ordered medium. Maybe that had something to do with it. We ordered pepper and bearnaise toppings. Both were okay - but nothing spectacular. It was our anniversary so we were surprised to receive free deserts! Very much appreciated. We do not eat this "high on the hog: very often. In fact, we had a gift certificate from 2020. We also had a "bonus" gift certificate that had expired. Manager honored it due to covid during that time. This was very much appreciated. Atmosphere is nice and clean, but it has been the same for many many years. I am tired of seeing the golf tee-looking towers. Could be that I hate golf, but there you go. Water glass never sat empty for very long which I always appreciate. Again staff was amazing all around - and my main reason I can still recommend.

    We arrived to a beautiful restaurant and prompt service. Our waiter was excellent and knowledgeable! We started with drinks and the white berry martini was excellent!! We ordered the nights special of 6oz filet and lobster tail. Sweet potato casserole and Brussels sprouts as sides (sides were the best part of the meal) We ordered the steak to be medium well since higher end restaurants usually cook it more pink. Mistake on our part. The steak was dry and chewy and the lobster tail had no flavor. I expected the meal to be better than this. Will not be going back.

    Steaks were very good. Ordered med and they were med rare. Had to send both back one time. But came back much better. Had crab cakes for a starter but they were more like a crab hush puppy in size. For 22$ they should've been more crab cake size. Over all it was good. I dont know if it was 190$ good but it was a new place for us.

    Simon did a wonderful job helping us celebrate our son's 17th birthday. He was attentive, extremely humorous and knew how to present the menu in la tantalizing way. Simon also was thoughtful to add very wise and sage advice to our teens. As a parent of teens, I am grateful for those words of encouragement from knowledgeable sources. Simon shared he is a father of 4. Thank you Simon for hosting us at our table.
