An old business friend invited me to dinner & they chose this place. I was excited since the inflight mag had it listed in the top 10 steakhouses in America..lol! Being fr metro NY, I know Luger's, Sparks & the Palm so I was interested. I knew something was up when they were out of bleu cheese olives for the martinis. The wagyu ribeye was so over salted it reminded me if being @ an Outback. Someone else had an oversalted steak as well & for $51 dollars as we say in my neck of the woods"forgeddaboutit" the bloody Mary they highly praise was also horrible..new bartender they told me. To be fair the bleu cheese chips were good & so was the lobster mac&cheese @ $19. The Oregon Pinot we ordered was very good & should have been for $124/bottle. In summary, never believe an inflight mag.

We went to Eddie Merlot's for our anniversary and it was great! We have been to Morton's and Ruths Chris before, and in my opinion, Eddie Merlot's far exceeds them with both service and food.

We went on the way to the theater for a romantic dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was a busy Art Deco and quite a change from the old Rhodes clothing store. Food highlights were the Salmon entree and the farm to table heirloom gazpacho. Actually, the best bargain and taste were the Ahi Tina wontons.

We had to try it and compare to Morton's, Jeff Ruby's and Ruth's Chris. Sorry, but Morton's is still our favorite. The meal was good, no doubt about it. Steak was done perfectly. Ordered the shrimp scampi for two, flamed at the table. Server dropped one on the floor. Said he would get one of their stuffed shrimps delivered with our entre but it never came. Offered us a dessert but they didn't have anything we wanted. Took $4.00 off the bill....excuse me, but 6 shrimp for $26 = $4.33 each. Not a big deal, but not very good customer service in my opinion. The wife felt the ceasar dressing was to "vinegary" but I liked it. Lyonaise potatos appeared fried rather than sauted and had little onion and no bacon...just a taste thing since we're used to Morton's. The house merlot tasted good but you get less than 1/4 of a glass for $9. At Morton's we get the Steak & Seafood for Two at $119 and we always have enough left over for a full meal the next day, including one of the two legendary chocolate cakes. We won't be back.

The soft shelled crabs, ahi tuna, and sea bass were all wonderful. As for the steak, it amazes me that a steakhouse charging $50 per order can not prepare a filet as requested.
The meat was visibly overcooked when served. The service was friendly and attentive if not a little intrusive. The decor was stylish but the room itself felt like a big box with little architectural interest. There are definitely better restaurants in Louisville with much more reasonable rates.
