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.

I was dining alone as I am in town for a conference. I was greeted quickly by Leo, who has exceptional "people skills." He asked if this was my first visit, what brought me to town, where I was from, etc, and he really seemed interested in the answers! He promised to check in throughout dinner, and he did. He... More
