Good food, $$$

Good food, very expensive but worth it. Took a long time to get our food and our appetizers were forgotten about, but I would go back though.

Excellent food at a good location, served by genuinely great staff. The prices are generally 30% too much for Louisville. Either the rent is high or the owner is not in it for the long haul - at the end of the day, be prepared to pay!

We were not impressed at all with our very expensive meals. The steak was tough and did not have good flavor. It's definitely not what we expected for the price. I would not visit this restaurant again. If you want an awesome meal, go across the street to the Brazilian steak house. You will not be disappointed there.

Eddie Merlot's was recommended as the best dining option in downtown Louisville by the front desk staff at the hotel when we checked in. Upon arriving at the restaurant, a young woman with a tattooed neck, finally came to the door where we were standing for a few minutes. The restaurant was not busy, in fact there were people seated... More

Everything was fabulous and the service was wonderful. The food was delicious and they have an extensive wine selection. For a fine dining chain restaurant, it was wonderful and will visit again.

We had eaten at this restaurant on a previous visit to Louisville and choose to return for a special occasion. Once again we were very impressed. From the food, to cocktails, to the service, the whole experience was excellent. The choice of steaks is extensive but they have other options as well. The server couldn't have been nicer and added... More

In every way, this was an outstanding experience. Got there when they opened but an hour before they serve, so we decided to chill with a couple drinks before dinner. Bartender was so friendly and helpful. Dinner: special price for two. 7 oz filets with veggies and choice of salads. Portions were all significant. Salads were great (a chef and... More

This place consistently delivers on high end appetizers and good solid steaks. It would be foolish to try the barbecue shrimps when you can have the shrimp cocktail to really enjoy the essence of the good stuff they bring in to this establishment. The steaks are on par with high end steakhouses like Capital Grill, Morton's, etc. the service as... More
