Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef and Seafood starts with U.S.D.A. Prime Beef. Only 2% of all U.S. beef is awarded this superior certification. Eddie Merlot’s ages the beef naturally to an unparalleled standard of tenderness and flavor. The chef then personally selects each piece for the optimum proportion of marbling, and texture, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender, and juicy steaks to your specifications. To seal in the flavor, the steak is flash-sear on high-heat grills. Eddie Merlot’s has created one of the hottest concepts today; the wine bar provides more than 40 wines by the glass and a very extensive reserve wine collection by the bottle. The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot’s boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

The kitchen has major issues. The New chef needs to get up to speed quickly as this isn’t the sort of place where mistakes are acceptable. Lots of kitchen mistakes.

Service is excellent!

My wife and I ate at this restaurant last Friday night. The wine and appetizer (spicy shrimp) were excellent and for our man courses, we order 2 filet mignon (med rare and med), lobster tail, and mashed potatoes. They brought 2 medium rare filets and we had to send one back. By the time we got my wife’s filet back, my filet and the potatoes were cold. A manager came over joking that my wife must have finished her food quickly because she had no plate in front of her. I explained that they cooked my wife’s filet wrong and he just said sorry and walked away.

Nobody offered to provide us with hot mashed potatoes or did they offer to bring my wife a new filet. When they did bring it back, it was a charred. I spend over $210 for a terrible meal. The worst part is that I emailed the Eddie Merlot customer service and the store manager and they did not feel it was important enough to respond to my email. We will not go back because at those prices, one would expect some type of equitable service.

My son ordered the fillet Del Mar chef’s choice & it looked like an appetizer. That was a poor choice for a man. He had to order a baked potato to feel full.The salad included was on a saucer size plate.
I had the cedar plank salmon which was a true entree & was delicious

We recently moved to Northern Virginia and tried out Eddie Merlot’s on Sunday night. While the food was very good, the noise level was so loud we had to practically shout to each other to have a conversation. Moreover, our waiter continuously tried to “up charge” every aspect of taking our order that it was very noticeable and annoying. It was a disappointing experience. We won’t be back.

Timm (with 2 “m”s) made our evening so memorable. We decided Sunday on Labor Day weekend that we wanted a “steak-house” steak dinner. We did just that at Eddie Merlot’s. Starting with great cocktails and oysters - we were off to a great start. Next we tried the tuna on the salt block, which was very good. Got a very nice wine recommendation from Timm and we ordered a strip steak and my husband got his favorite - the bone-in rib eye. Both can out perfectly prepared. We tried their cauliflower and Brussels. Cauliflower was the star. Had a greatl time discussing dining with Timm. Our first times at this One Loudoun location and we will definitely return.

Food was excellent. Service was sub par - especially for a restaurant of this caliber. All we had were salads and steaks and it took us 1.5 hours. Gave I with dessert and coffee as it seemed to take the waiter 15-20 minutes between check ins. Very disappointed - especially with the deliciousness of the food!

Eddie's has been my go-to restaurant when I want an excellent cut of beef. However, this time my prime steak was overcooked, and resembled a rib-eye instead of a NY Strip. I had to wait until my steak came, and by then my family had all but finished eating, so they had to wait for me. While the manager did come to my table with the obligatory apologies, it didn't seem genuine. I was also given two free appetizer certificates, but they expire at the end of this month. It would have been nice not to have and expiration date. Yes, I will go back, because the food is excellent and the servers are awesome. Perhaps just a bad day for the chef...and the bartender. My lemon drop martini was just so-so, and generally I can't stop talking about them or have seconds.

We were seated and waited 7 minutes for the server to take our drink order. Fifteen minutes later we received two wines (no beer). One which was wrong. Two beers arrive 10 minutes later when we asked the server to take back the wrong wine and bring the correct one.

The birthday girl ordered the $99 steak which was not evenly grilled. Half was over done.

The server tried hard but was overworked. I blame management for her excessive workload.

Overall, overpriced food and drink without the corresponding attentive service.

I love this restaurant! The food is fabulous with much more than the usual steaks. One of my companions ordered the bison and really enjoyed it. I had the salmon, which was delicious. Their specials are inventive and varied enough to satisfy any palette. The bar is really large, beautiful and lots of fun. I highly recommend having a glass of wine or specialty cocktail there before you have your dinner in the main dining room. Valet parking makes it easy to get in and out, even in the rain!

Meg was AMAZING. She really made our first experience one to remember. I also had my first bison filet mug on, and I’m pretty sure It was better than the $100 Waygu ribeye (which was also incredible). We Will definitely be back.
