    Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be anything special or spectacular about Eddie Merlot's now. Food was half cold and the filet I had was on the tough side. So many other restaurants out there struggling to stay open and serving better food that I'd rather give my patronage to. Sorry Eddie Merlot's but probably my last trip there, at least for a while.

    My husband and I went for our 15th anniversary. Not our first time at this restaurant, and definitely not our last either. When booking I stated it was an anniversary event and they gave us a card and a complimentary dessert. We will definitely be dining there again.

    What a letdown. Food was very good, as usual, but service was excruciatingly slow. Dinner took over three hours - and the restaurant was all-but empty. Definitely an off night.

    Easter Brunch is always amazing at Eddie Merlot’s! They have a little bit of everything for everyone no matter what you’re in the mood for! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert options were served at their Easter Buffet. We were a little sad to see the price go up and bottomless mimosas go away, but overall a wonderful meal where everyone left happy and full. The buffet is filled with so many incredibly tempting options you’ll never try them all before you’d get full! Don’t let the word buffet scare you, it’s just as well executed as their a la carte dining.

    We celebrated my birthday tonight and it was outstanding! Everything— the ambiance, the food, and Jake our server, was top notch. We eat out often and Eddie Merlots stands above most other restaurants in Columbus. It’s classy without being stuffy. The staff is attentive and friendly. And the food is excellent! How do they make those steaks taste so good?!

    Jake was our server. He was excellent. We usually go on Tuesdays in the bar but had to move it to Wednesday. The bar was packed. The bar bites are excellent but we went with our traditional filet del mar. Always a great meal and proportions are just right so we don’t feel over stuffed.

    Continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in Columbus. The Seafood Tower is amazing: pricey because of generous portions of tuna, oysters, crab legs, shrimp, plus accompaniment assorted sauces, but worth every bite of it

    Asked for a booth and we ended up getting the same booth as before on the end. They are so very accommodating. Our server Stacy was absolutely amazing, very attentive as in getting the little things we asked for as in lemons for our water and salmon. Our food was delicious and the service by all was great. Thank you so very much.

    Server team was wonderful. Bison steak was great, sides were all right. Cocktails were fabulous. Damaged and aged carpet in the dining area really detracts from the decor. Carrot cake was stodgy and unpleasant. I unfortunately left dinner feeling like I overpaid.

We really appreciated our server because we were running short on time unexpectedly and had to get to another location for an event. She quickly got our checks ready and got us out the door with our to go leftovers.

    Disaster. Fasted all day to enjoy evening out and waited a really long time for our Caesar salad . No bread ever came. We are almost finished with our wine when they bring dinner. We cancel the salad and my burger is rare inside not med-well. Send that back and say will take it to go. I sat there while my husband ate his steak. Finished my wine. Eventually they brought me a salad I scarfed down as he finished. There was no charge for the salad or my burger and an apology . There was no effort to overcome the cluster - imo they should have brought me another wine on the house and offered complimentary dessert to go . All we got was a “whoops, sorry we won’t charge you.” It will be a year before we go back . They have a new manager in that place every 6 mos. This one didn’t take charge at all. Nobody wants empathy and an apology - people expect you to overcome a ruined evening at a high end restaurant with extraordinary.

    Went to celebrate my birthday and we usually do our favorite entree after enjoying a Happy Hour drink. This time we decided to just do the bar bites. They were excellent and very filling. We have decided from now on we are just going to enjoy the bar bites and a drink. It is the best kept secret, however, the bar was packed.

    I ordered oysters for my appetizer but that was never brought to the table. Once my entrée was brought out to the table it was cold. I ordered chicken breast and got thighs instead. As I was cutting it to eat it there was still blood on the bone of the chicken. I was VERY disappointed.

    Fantastic experience! Mathew was so knowledgeable and had great energy. He clearly shares our passion for good wine. First time visiting Eddie Merlot's. In a little under a year since relocating to Columbus we have tried somewhere between 35-40 of the top reviewed restaurants in the city...This is easily in our top handful of experiences. Definitely beat out any of the comparable National Steakhouse chains (Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Flemming's etc.), and at a slightly lower price point. Sweet and Spicy Shrimp, Crab Bisque, Burrata were some of our highlights. Ambiance was great....classy, but still colorful and lively. Can't wait to return. -Orion and Cindi

    Celebrated our 29th anniversary. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" as we checked in. When our waiter approached the table, he left a handwritten card saying "Happy Anniversary." Attention to detail was superb. Chad was our waiter, and he was excellent. We will definitely be back. This restaurant is fine dining at its best.
