I asked for the best and costly steak in the menu, told the waitresses I want it medium well. After quite a while she brought me a COOKED steak?! She told me that it was slowly cooked?! Now maybe I’m not familiar with this local recipe but the dish was disgusting! The salad was also poor (green salad – how one can wrongly cut it?!)
If you want steak, Don’t go there! Choose some other place.

We went to this steak house because the restaurant was dire in the our nearby hotel!
When we arrived we were ushered upstairs, and looking round the downstairs area it seemed that this was the place where the locals met to drink, chat, and to chew over the day with some food.
We ordered simple steaks which were slightly underdone from what we asked for but they were well flavoured and the service from our server was quick, comprehensive and friendly.
I can't say that it was the most salubrious place that we have been to, but that isn't what it sets out to be. It is a simple honest restaurant serving good food reasonably priced.
Take the place for what it is and enjoy the food.

After shopping we wanted to eat. The portions were super-sized for daily specials. We were surprised by the prices of beer when the check came. Blue cheese on salad was not crumbled, but deli sliced. May or may not go back.

We enjoyed great, friendly service and a hearty meal at Merlino's Steak House. The menu has excellent variety and the pre-entree salad that is served to the table is a very welcome addition to a meal.

We were expecting better. At the hotel they had told us it was supposed to be the best place for steak. Food was good, portions were fair. But the whole place would need to be refreshed. It's dark and you don't feel at ease. We should have left... Anyway we won't go back. The waitress was nice, nothing to do with the rest of the place.
