This isn't everyone's cup of tea. But if you're looking for a classic, white tablecloth steak house in Louisville, this should be on your list. But be prepared to pay for the privilege. I was there for a business / social meal, mid-week, and from start to finish the service and the food was superb. Our waiter was friendly and... More

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

My son and I took my husband for his birthday and it was AMAZING! The food was incredible, all the steaks were perfect, brussel sprouts awesome, wine excellent and that doesn't cover dessert; our server IAN, whom was on point and incredible, and the ambience was perfect. We will be back!

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
