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

I wanted to love this place, it came highly recommended, but... The service was poor, our waiter was more concerned about posturing himself than serving food. I think he thought every customer might be a potential job interview. Our drinks went dry twice. Husband tried to order something on the menu and the server said they hadn't served that in... More

I had read the reviews about this place which varied from great to horrible and the very low ratings were based primarily on poor service. My wife and I both ordered the 7 oz filet mignon. They were both very tasty and cooked to perfection, hers medium well and mine medium rare. The fries and grilled asparagus were also quite... More

I stopped and had lunch at this restaurant located in the middle of downtown Louisville where a lot of people are walking and lots of activity under the 4th Street plaza. It is a great location and lots of things to see there. I had a salad and breadsticks which were good tasting. The portion was slightly small but was... More
