The difficulty of being a very expensive restaurant is that expectations are rightfully very high. You can't just be good; you have to be great to live up to the price point. Unfortunately, Eddie Merlot wasn't able to hit the mark. I will begin by saying we were a very large group - 12 people. The first issue when we... More

Excellent experience, I brought my 16 year old and he was impressed with the food, and its presentation, as well as the overall service of the personnel and environment of the restaurant. I enjoyed his company and the fact that he was very happy.

Took my son here because it looked nice and was near our hotel. Nice decor. Classy would be an accurate description. We were seated next to a birthday party with a dozen kids. Not the restaurants fault but they were noisy and kept roaming around. I ordered a veal dish that was good. My son ordered a bourbon marinade rib... More

We recently ate at Eddie Merlot's in Louisville, Ky. We were a party of ten. I have to say this was one of the best restaurant experiences ever for all of us. The servers were fantastic and extremely attentive.. The décor was attractive, beautiful and tasteful. The food was delicious and presentation great. Everyone in our party thought the restaurant...

We had drinks and listened to the live music for about an hour or so. The bartender was nice, service was good and the Jazz band was excellent. I wanted a snack but the kitchen was closed.

Can't say enough about Eddie Merlot's. I had to choice a dining venue in Louisville for a group of 8 of us. It was my first trip to Louisville and I was concerned about having to make a dining choice for 7 other people. No one was disappointed with my choice. From the reception at the entrance to our departure... More

Eddie Merlot's just falls short. The food doesn't measure up to the decor or the prices. The steaks are good, but not great. Both times I've been at least one member of my party had to send their steak back to the kitchen. The sides are more cafeteria quality than fine-dining. The only redeeming qualities are the service, which is... More

While looking for an upscale restaurant walking distance from the Palace Theatre, this popped up. Looking at the menu & reviews, it seemed a great choice. It was better than that, dead on perfect from start to finish! Dining as a couple, we shared a shrimp cocktail served over dry ice with homemade cocktail sauce that was amazing. I ordered... More
