    Great service from Jo our waitress. The guest relations who manned the front desk was not great. We arrived 30 minutes early in purpose so my team and I can huddle before our client comes in. We were escorted to the bar despite our table being ready.

    We came for the last day of Restaurant Week. We all had the 6oz. Filet Mignon which was perfect, cooked to perfection. The filet was served with mashed potatoes, green beans and a salad. All were small portions but very good. Actually, all the portions were preferred size by us. We finished dinner with carrot cake, again an appropriate small serving. Jessica was our server, she had a great personality and was very attentive. My daughter liked when she asked “are you still enjoying that?” before taking her plate away with a few bites left. All of the staff were great and very professional. Over all great dinner and value. We will definitely be back again.

    Four couples, restaurant week in Cincinnati with fixed menu at a special price. Service was good, but very slow. Food was good, but not great. My husbands filet was pretty pathetic looking- like an end piece and it seemed like the quality wasn’t a big priority given the special pricing for restaurant week.

    I made reservations for 5 for my husbands 30th birthday, and put that as the reason for our visit. We were seated right away, which was nice. The service was friendly but not very attentive. We ran out of water and soda a couple of times, and my husband and his friend ordered old fashioned’s which the first round came out moderately fast, and the second round took a while. My husband ordered a medium rare steak and he said it was overdone, which was a bit of a let down. The staff was very friendly, but I don’t think we’ll be back for the price versus quality of service/food. I’d say it’s worth going once to try. None of the staff asked about the birthday reservation though which was also kind of a let down.

    This was my first visit, and it was during Restaurant Week. My soup was cold, my food was cold, the salmon was salty, the green beans werent seasoned, and the potatoes were dried out and overcooked. I have only heard good things about this restaurant, so it may have been an off night. In addition to being Restaurant Week, it must have been prom night. It was super busy.

    In my opinion, Eddie Merlot's is overpriced. The service was great. The Berry White Martini was yummy. But the food tasted a step above a hospital cafeteria. The dessert tasted like a frozen cake from a food service company. For the price they charge, I expected more.

    We usually love the perfect dining experience of eating at Eddie Merlot’s but this time it was a very watered down experience, from the food to our not great waitress. The filet was not great, the mashed potatoes seemed watered down, and the chocolate cake, which used to be fabulous, hardly had any frosting and it was a scant amount only between the layers.

    Service was very Slow. Dinner for 5 took almost 4 hours and we had to push the waiter. The meat was extremely salty and every steak ordered was overcooked. The meat was a good cut and tender and if it was not overcooked and salty it would have been excellent. We will not be returning or recommending this restaurant. It was pricy and we are willing to pay for good food and good service this just did not meet anyones expectations.

    Very expensive for the quality of food. The steak was very bland and could have used more seasoning. The truffle fries were somewhat bland too. The service was good. The Old Fashion was good as wel.

    The restaurant was freezing. My wife was miserable even after I got her sweater out of the car. We both ordered off the chefs special menu- choice of entree plus a salad. The check came and yet we were charged for a Caesar salad. I asked the waiter( Adam) to remove the charge from the bill and he wouldn’t. Sorry way to end the evening.

    Jessica, our server, started & ended our night on a high note. My girl friend (not girlfriend) & I wanted to share a meal while our significant others were camping. We made the right choice! Split the grilled romaine. Great explanation of the differences between steaks. Had salmon & small strip with bearnaise, sweet potato casserole, carrot cake & French press coffee. A totally enjoyable evening.
