    My wife and I had dinner here for our anniversary. Our server was MIA, only checked-in with us a few times- a neighboring server checked on us more than he did. Appetizers of barbeque shrimp and filet mignon pot stickers were great. We ordered prime ribeyes medium and medium well, and both were over-cooked. At this price-point, no sure I would return. Heard good things and expected more.

    Our food was all excellent! We had filets and apps and a couple of sides to share. Everything was delicious. Our waiter George was fantastic!! We loved our signature cocktails too. For dessert we shared the chocolate cake and carrot cake. The chocolate cake was very good but the carrot cake was fabulous!! Highly recommend! As always, a great experience at Eddie Merlot’s.

    We've been here many times enjoying our dinners with friends previously and this is the first time we've ever had to send two steaks back multiple times due to the cook temp being way off. While we appreciate them being corrected, we had to wait extremely long for the check to be sorted as a result. Hoping this is a one off experience, but we're all disappointed this evening.

    Overtake a good experience. The food was good, specially the filet mignon potstickers. The chefs favorite mixed grill was a good value and a good dish, so also the peanut butter cup dessert. The service initially was slow, but ended up well.

    Of course this is a high end place so be prepared for the sticker shock. Once you're over that, you'll have some fantastic food and we had fantastic services as well. Had a mixed grill platter with several sides (tempura green beans - awesome; creamed spinach - awesome; sweet potatoes - amazing; brussel sprouts - a little disappointing (probably wouldn't have ordered them if I has asked how they were cooked). Filet, sausage and shrimp on my platter were just perfect! Not sure how you cook a small 4 oz filet perfectly, but they did! Highly recommend, just be prepared for the prices....

    Eddie Merlot was excellent. The ambiance in this restaurant is outstanding, drinks were great and service was very good. I did not mention it was my birthday when I booked the reservation but they must have gotten notification on Open Table. The table was decorated and free dessert was given. Very nice touch. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area. Btw we went to the Eddie Merlot in downtown Pittsburgh and it was outstanding too.

    We arrived a half hour before our reservation to enjoy a cocktail at the bar. Lorenzo the bartender was phenomenal! Attentive and made two of the best martinis we have had in a long time. We sat at a high top bar table for dinner where Meg took excellent care of us for our meal. The food was great, wine selection offered plenty of options and the jazz musicians playing during dinner were a nice change and were awesome! Really enjoyed our date night here and look forward to returning soon.

    Went to celebrate a birthday. We ordered the lobster (special), a filet mignon, and 3 sides (Brussels sprouts, potatoes, and mushrooms). The lobster was slightly over cooked (tough) and the filet and sides had no flavor. I asked for a side of bacon Gorgonzola cheese but it never came. As a result, my steak got cold waiting for it. The best part of the meal was the dessert (the cognac brownie). After it was delivered, our waitress overheard that it was my girlfriend’s bday, which she then brought out a free crème brûlée. A nice gesture that wasn’t asked for or expected but I thought it was odd that we received a free 2nd dessert, which went uneaten. I would’ve rather they just took a few dollars off the dessert we ordered. All in all, we spent $300 for a subpar meal and experience. I realize I could’ve complained to the manager but when he finally got around to checking on us, it was getting late and I just wanted to leave. It’s not likely I’ll go back.

    not our best experience dining here. it's a great restaurant but there were a few problems this time around. love the bacon wrapped shrimp that we choose to get as an appetizer but this time there was way too much bbq sauce. it smothered the delicious flavor of bacon wrapped shrimp. in the past it was more of a glaze of sauce and we'll be sure to ask for it that way next time. hubby had the lobster tail and creamed spinach - both excellent! once again i had the tuna dinner as my entree. the tuna and rice were great. i was told the vegetable was mostly carrots and i asked for little or no ginger. what was served to me was red peppers, mushrooms and a few cut up pieces of asparagus. very disappointing misinformation - i don't eat peppers or mushrooms so that remained on my plate. good thing we had ordered the asparagus tempura as an extra side to share because that is sensational! waiter was too pushy with trying to upsell the wine selection. despite repeating my wine order back to me correctly, he brought me the wrong wine. i could taste the difference immediately and had him replace it. naturally it was the expensive one he had suggested. really dislike that type of upsell and 'mistake'. the complimentary birthday dessert was never served. we ordered it to go and waited over 10 minutes but the waiter never came back. we had a nice time but the main memory that remains is this was very disappointing compared to our previous visits.

    We recently visited Eddie Merlot's for dinner and drinks as part of a friends birthday celebration at One Loudoun. It is within easy walking distance from the hotel we booked for the night (Tru by Hilton) but, even if we had driven, there was plenty of parking. We had reservations and were quickly seated when we arrived 15 minutes early. I have to admit, the table setting was kind of insane. Maybe a little overkill. But I get it, they want to present as upscale. Our waitress was a attentive and knowledgeable. Although we didn't get steak this time it was nice to learn they have their Wagyu selection back. I had the Mojo Shrimp and Scallops and my husband had the Sea Bass. Both were divine! Aww didn't get any appetizers as we chose to just enjoy the Old Bay dusted crusty warm bread. But seriously the best part for me was the White Berry Martini (or three) that I ordered. Fresh fruit, appropriately strong, and with a sweet (but not overpoweringly so) taste. Seriously, I highly recommend this cocktail next time you visit! It was a great evening in an inviting atmosphere with cozy chairs, and great company. We will definitely be back.

    Had a nice dinner in the bar area of Eddie Merlots. It has a nice ambiance and with live music from a combo, created a great energy. We usually elect to sit in the main dining room and it allows for quiet conversation but this was a nice change. Enjoyed some grilled oysters and selections from bar menu along with yummy cocktails. Perfect to relax on a Friday evening!
