“Consistently great!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

You can count on red carpet service and perfectly prepared food every time. My wife and I went this week to celebrate a big work related accomplishment. We were seated right away even though we were early for our reservation. Our server was always there when needed and gave us privacy when appropriate. There was a feature on whole lobster (2 for $39) so we decided to split a steak and share the lobster. When the meal arrived our server offered to carve the stark and de-shell the lobsters. We accepted her offer and she did an excellent job! We were able to enjoy our meal without all the work that comes along with lobster. It really added that extra touch that elevated our experience. The food was perfectly prepared and the wine list was outstanding. The wine has a very reasonable price on all bottles so you don't have compromise to stay on budget. We always have a top notch experience at Eddy's!

“Great Fod and Staff”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We just got back from Eddie Merlot's and it was so, fantastic I just had to write this. From the valet parking to the fantastic bar staff, to the experienced waiters/ waitresses. This place was over the top, awesome food and drinks, but be prepared to blow the cob webs out of the wallet, as this place is expensive, but well worth it. I had the bone in Filet and my wife had the trio of medallions (filet), then for desert Bananas foster prepared tableside, delicious!

“Good meal, great staff, loud and boiterious.”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

If you are looking for a quiet dining experience, move on. This place hops - and deservedly so. Energy is high (drinks maybe) and the staff is ultra attentive. The food is good, steak is better than others - but the deserts are excellent.

Don't eat in the bar, you want a table...but the bar is the perfect place to start. If you want good food, great fun and don't mind the tab for the privilege - go here. You won't be sorry.

“Super high end steak house”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have dined at Merlot's numerous times and you can walk from the Hilton. I have entertained here, but have also enjoyed dining by myself at the bar. Very welcoming when you are solo with steaks that match or exceed any of the competition.
