Very good food, average service, very expensive

We dined at Eddie Merlot's for my husband's birthday. The ambience is great, although our table near the kitchen door was not ideal. My party of 4 (3 adults, 1 child) had 3 bar drinks, 2 regular drinks, 3 salads, 3 small filet's, sea bass, 2 side items, and shared a tableside-prep dessert... read more

I was taking my 85 year old mother to dinner and the theater. We were able to valet our car, have our coats placed in coat check and have a very relaxing and delicious dinner AND make it to our seats on time. Our waiter Dane was very patient with mom and took such kind and polite care of us... More

My husband and I had a date night on the evening January 30th here . We live 3 hours away and particularly came in town to get away as an early Valentine night out , but most importantly, getting to eat here was going to be a highlight of the trip because this is my favorite restaurant. My best friend... More

Plan to spend some money here for the best steak you will ever eat. The New York sirloin was highest quality meat cooked to perfection. They must have a very hot oven for quick cooking. Excellent, attentive service to your every need.

This was a very comfortable, very nice place to either grab a drink or get a full meal. I visited several times during my visit to the area and wasn't disappointed at all.

Great restaurant for a group dinner. They put together a couple of giant seafood platters for the table and everyone was very happy with their steaks. Service was on point. With the apps, mains and several bottles of wine the total bill was quite reasonable.

I was recommended this place so I was eager to try it but was completely underwhelmed. The decor is spacious & clean--big modern in the tone of Grande Luxe, not cozy. The name suggests a great wine selection which was good, but not great. The server was earnest but not knowledgable about the wines. As for food, I ordered a... More

Best steak in Louisville and if you know this city that is saying a lot !! The restaurants around here are excellent but I like to splurge with my Wife pretty often - no kids. Place is very pricy but soooo worth every penny.

The service and cleanliness is what might be expected at an exit ramp restaurant. Not terrible, but you won't be dazzled. For the price, and much less, one can do much better in downtown Louisville.
