    Went there last night for our Wedding anniversary. Arrived at 7 and got our at 9pm. When server brought the soup, she saidwill bring bread, she even mentioned it again when she came back but bread never happened. It is hard to find the server so its a struggle to get water refills. The food arrived my wife ordered 3 medalion steak (hers came fine) mine is medium well Prime aged Ribeye $69, medium well. The steak was burnt, If it was just well done I would have just accepted it, but it is burnt and chewy. Mentioned it to the server she checked it with a light and she took it back, so my wife has a meal to eat alone so we just shared the one meal and the sides brussel sprouts overcooked we just kept anyway. When the 2nd Ribeye arrived it is burnt again and the man who brought it in already knew so he said they won't charge me for it. That is fine but it just ruined the night for us, we were supposed to have a nice meal together for our anniversary. It is getting late to wait for another steak so I said I will just eat what i can. My meal arrived twice burnt, i could tolerate it if well done but it is burnt. Not sure how this can happen for an upscale restaurant like Eddie Merlot. We know what char is and what is burnt, server made excuses that their oven accumulates char which causes that and its just the char on the outer. Then if they are aware of that why make the same mistake twice? Server atleast offered carrot cake for us to take home no cost for the trouble. Which is ok but doesn't justify the experience. Spoke to a manager to offer feedback, he was nice and mentioned they have new kitchen staff and are adjusting.

    Very disappointed. It took 35 minutes to get our initial drink order. We ordered another round of drinks. After 15 min we canceled them. We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner and it showed up when we were finished with our meal. Food was great! Jasper was friendly. The bar was not cutting it. To top it off it was my husbands birthday and his drink- the easiest of them all- was no brought with the other three. The lights in the bar were too bright too.

    The food was really good but our stay was a lot longer than what we were expecting. According to our server, people quit on the spot and they were really behind. They did comp us a dessert at the end of our meal but being there for over three hours isn’t what we expected. Hoping it will be different if we choose to come back. The bread was amazing. My boyfriend had the cheeseburger. He said it was a little salty but overall not bad. Fries were a little over cooked. I had the strip and baked potato. Both amazing. The bananas foster was also delicious.

    We had fun evening celebrating my husband’s birthday. Our server, David was very attentive. The kitchen was very busy due to a very large party in private dining room. Our only complaint was that the private party had a lot of in/ out of the room and there was constant traffic next to our table.

    The first loaf of bread was bad, the second loaf was good. The Wagyu steak 6oz for $80.00 was not good. I have purchased steaks for Meijer's that was better then that steak. My wife's chicken dinner was dry.

    We went for the 1st time for New Years eve dinner. Waited a half hour past our reservation to be sat. Ok not overall bad wait time. We got sat in what looked like a side room but was being used due to the packed house. Didn't really get the ambience from where we were sitting. Waited an hour for our appetizers (potstickers and soup). When dinner came, the steak was cooked right but no seasoning (salt and pepper) what so ever and was cold. The lobster was done correctly. Staff was great and they were doing the best they could for an obviously overbooked understaffed night. Pretty upset to pay top dollar for a mediocre time. Its a shame because so many people recommended it. Hoping it was an off night and don't ever go on a big holiday.

    The service was fine and the drinks were good but we waited for an hour for our food and it was cold. We ordered the chargrilled oysters and those were okay but nothing special. I probably wouldn’t get those again. My husband ordered the steak medallions medium rare. Those were good but 2 out of 3 of them were well done. I ordered the shrimp and scallops meal. The flavor was meh but it was all cold. Also, there were gnats around the table!

    It's been a while since I have been to Eddie's always good. But the cooks were definitely off that night. My husbands food was a little cool and 2 of are steaks had to go back overcook. So by the time 2 of us are. The other 2 waited. Till there streaks came out. Then they ate.

    I like Eddy Merlot, I always had good meals there but this time the whole experience was off. 1) we found a piece of glass in the soup... they said it was a shell... it's ok, it happens (shouldn't, but)... they said they were not going to charge us for the soup (which is the bare minimum) and they charged us instead - I didn't complain 2) the truffle fries were soggy... for a side that was even recommended I was disappointed 3) steaks were ok but I had better (and this was surprising). Usually when you put the first piece of filet in your mouth you go wow... this time I did not... Overall... he...

    We waited over 20 mins for our table that we had reserved. Service was friendly, but very slow. Two of us tried the holiday special, bone in filet and it was so undercooked that it was inedible. Others at our table said their NY strips were good, and cooked correctly. Salads were good, dessert was ok at best. Overall, we were disappointed and won’t go back.

    I decided to take my parents out for dinner for Christmas and the experience was great once we were seated. The hostess was not friendly whatsoever, but we were pleasantly surprised by our really nice server, Kyle. He was so attentive and even took a family photo for us and accompanied me in finding the restroom so politely! The food was amazing and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to have dinner as a family. Thank you for such a wonderful evening! We will be back!
