    Hosting a business dinner can sometimes be tricky; will the server be professional, will there be minimal interruptions, will the food be good? Eddie Merlot's checked the boxes! The server was amazing, the food incredible and the overall ambiance was perfect for our event.

    The $45.99 meal for Pgh. Resturant week is a good deal. The filet minion 6 oz. was excellent. The salad, mashed potatoes and green beans were good. I think $14 for a glass of "house wine is outrageous. The chocolate cake for dessert was fair at best. It was very bland and tasteless.

    Steak was excellent. The sides were nothing special they could use an upgrade. The bartenders definitely need to step up their game, cocktails were underwhelming.

She was wonderful at recommending things and explaining things to make what we ordered amazing. The steak was cooked perfectly. Everything tasted so fresh and we left with happy bellies and a smile.

    Food was sub par at best for the price. Service was poor. Male server in bar area never checked back once dinners were served to ask how everything was. Out of Eddie Merlot Cabernet. Experience fell well below expectations. Much better options in town.

    We went for Restaurant week- the menu was well put together. Everyone from the hostess to the server was very welcoming to us & maintained a high level of professionalism throughout dinner. The cedar plank roasted salmon was prepared perfectly. The crème brûlée is probably the best in town! Would highly recommend!

    Absolutely amazing food, excellent value for restaurant week, and this staff has HUSTLE! They were busy for a Monday, but my waiter was very apologetic when we had to wait, and despite the slight delay ordering, the food came quickly. The selection and preparation were fabulous.

    We waited 40 minutes for our main course meals once we ordered & then they came out. Our server told us our meals are next as he saw them in the window but it was another 10 minutes before we got the food & everything was lukewarm. We didn’t want to send it back because we had no idea how long it would take. Also considering the restaurant probably at 70% capacity it was disappointing for the wait. While waiting I counted 13 tables/booths empty while we waited. We’ve dined here several times & this was the longest we ever waited for food. Pre-pandemic when this restaurant was thriving we never waited that long for food & then to come out lukewarm, there is no excuse. The food was good & prepared correctly just wanted it hotter. We also know our server was at the mercy of the kitchen & had no issues with him. He’d come by to check on us while we were waiting to give us refills & remove the salad plate & soup bowl & take care of the bread crumbs ;-)

    Went on New Years Eve as a last minute decision. Pleasantly surprised they were able to take our reservation on such short notice, especially on a big night. It was very peaceful and not loud at all (as I was kind of expecting due to it being NYE). Service was great as well! Manager (David) stopped by as always. I work in a restaurant myself, and I was impressed with every bit of the night! Food was better than the last time we were there!! It was a good night

    We were there for New Years Eve. It was full but never felt crowded. We had a nice table near the windows with a view of the city. Our waiter was excellent and was able to make recommendations. The steaks were delicious as was the wine we chose. Highly recommend for a special occasion. It’s pricey but worth it.

    Nothing to write home about. The flavor was okay, steak was over cooked, and the salad was over-dressed. Just expect more out of a high-end steakhouse. Waitress was good, but she spilled the wine every time she poured it.

    We have been for dinner 4 or 5 times and loved it. Lunch was good but dinner was better. Soup was excellent. Don’t get a 4 oz filet it’s really small so there is no juice. I have had their larger filet and it was excellent. Also I had to leave off the garlic butter they use for the steak so that also changed it. But steak was still very tender. I love the ambiance of this restaurant more then any other downtown. Always our go to place.

    Wait staff was extremely neglectful and very slow. Food was sub-par. Steaks were tasteless and dry. Only tasty food was the macaroni and cheese. Moving of the dirty dishes on carts was extremely loud and constant.
