Very nice looking place for business or formal dinners. Personally I cannot stand a la carte places but had a gift card so we tried it out. Food was very pricey but we expected that. Without any drinks - just water - bill was $110 without dessert. Waitress was nice and helpful. The food was good but not worth the cost in my opinion. Other patrons seemed very arrogant and rude to the staff so it didn't help the atmosphere. We did not have to wait long for our food which was a positive.

Had a wonderful dinner experience for a friend's birthday. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list, making great recommendations.

We had dinner here on Saturday night. Don't know if things have changed since our previous visits, but the service was unbelievably slow. After 20 minutes of sitting at our table with just a glass of water, my husband asked the bus boy for the bread that is typically brought out. It took 30 minutes after we were seated for our waiter to bring the bottle of wine we had ordered. Dinner didn't arrive until an hour (yes, an hour) after we had first sat down at our table. Other tables seemed to be getting slightly better service.

The food was very good, but the extremely long wait will make us think twice before returning, especially on a Saturday night.

Was here for a 6;30PM seating on New Years Eve ! We were not rushed and it was the usual great menu plus a few specialties. I have dined here with family on several occasions. It is a go to place for us to celebrate when we all get together. The food and service are consistantly great! Dont miss the smoking shrimp cocktail or the bananas foster !! I have nothing bad to say about Eddie Merlot's!! It is on the pricey side - but serves wonderful food and the staff is always top notch.

My family and I (6 in all) ate here a few days before Christmas as a Christmas Birthday celebration for my wife and had a wonderful experience. We had oysters, shrimp, and calamari as appetizers for the group and all were great - just the right amount for our sized group. Our waiter, Jay, was extremely friendly and helpful, especially in explaining the oyster selection. Our dinners were all cooked as ordered and tasted great. There was nothing more we could have asked for as we had just a wonderful time.
