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

Great atmosphere and service. We sat at the bar on a Saturday night. There was a jazz trio playing and they were very good. The drinks were excellent. The dessert was just a tad above ordinary.

My wife and I came to Eddie Merlot's for our sixth year anniversary to treat ourselves and our experience was not good. We both ordered our filets medium to medium well. Hers came out well done and mine was very rare to RAW for the middle half of the steak(manager agreed). Wife and I both agreed that the steaks were... More

And it was delicious! The Caesar salad was large and crisp and perfectly chilled. There is a section of the menu where you can get a meal that comes with a salad and side for $29 which is a bargain for a fancy restaurant. They also have the large sides you can order separately along with the other entrees. I... More

First but not last time at this restaurant with business associates. Filet was melt in your mouth delicious. Outstanding selection of appetizers. Very friendly and exceptional service. An absolute must visit when in Louisville.

Both the bar and the restaurant are exceptional in quality food, drinks and service. The steak is "melt in your mouth" good! Bar has an extensive burbon selection.
