Eddie Merlot's - Pittsburgh Ratings and Reviews
Food was delicious, service was great! We were there to celebrate a special occasion. Our server asked if there was a special occasion that evening, we told her yes. They went above and beyond to recognize the event. Every course they stopped at our table to make sure we were pleased with our food. Nice atmosphere, nicely decorated. Definitely on the repeat list!
Eddie Merlot's is one of Pittsburgh's best steakhouses. We love the glitzy decor & the food is consistently good. We always ask for Pat to be our server. He will take excellent care of you. Michael the bartender will do the same for you if you sit at the bar.
It was out first time trying this place.
Food was delicious and creative at the same time, specially, appetizers. ...
Fresh , high quality ingredients...
And well constructed and just the right portion size.
All of the staffs have shown courtesy and the service was just superb.
We moved from NYC to Pittsburgh 13 yrs ago and couldn't really find good restaurant as i ur go to place. I think we finally found one.
Though they reimbursed the parking fee after the meal, it was not specified on their web page. But they do. So use the parking garage and have it redeemed before you leave the restaurant.
I would definitely be back many more time.
My fiancée and I decided to give this restaurant a try after hearing good things from a trusted friend. I can fully say for the price, I will not be dining here again. It took forever to get our drinks (Manhattan and a glass of wine), and even longer to get our soups. We waited for at least 50 minutes before our meals came out. I watched three tables (all larger parties) get their meals before we did. When my steak finally came out, it was burnt to a crisp. Mind you I ordered it rare. Not sure how you get well done out of rare. The entire night was a disaster. After paying almost $200 for dinner, I would rather lick the bottom of my hunting boots than eat at this travesty of a restaurant again.
We went there for my son's graduation celebration. The food was amazing and our server did a good job. My complaint is that we were seated very close to the kitchen and there was a lot of traffic by our table. My chair got bumped by serving staff at least 5 or 6 times during the evening. When our food came out, one of the staff brought it to the table and instead of placing it on the table at our place, asked us to take it from her. Our side of potatoes came out at least 5 minutes after the other food. For the price, great service is expected. Also, the noise level was not conducive to conversation. I prefer the ambiance of Ruth's Chris. I don't know if there is one in Pittsburgh, but we have eaten at one in the Philadelphia area several times and it was enjoyable.
It was my birthday and my wife wanted to take me to a nice dinner. My buddy and his wife met us at the lounge and we decided to eat there to watch the Penguins game. We ordered salads and appetizers as well as dinner. The salads and apps were very good. The steaks came out and the server couldn't figure out who ordered what. It happens, but the steaks were overcooked. So, now we're trying to figure out steaks and if my buddy ordered medium rare and they are all overlooked, should he get the medium?!? We had fun, the food was good, but, for the money, I'll be taking my business elsewhere like Cap Grille or Eddie Vs.
Meh...delivered on some spots, fell short on others. Our server was pretty good overall. He was attentive with the drinks and paced the meal well. The main entrees were good. My strip steak was prepared as I ordered, and my wife's lobster tail was done well. The bread served before hand was nothing special compared to other steakhouses I've been to, but that's not a big deal. Worse thing of the evening was dessert, which you might say, left a bad taste in my mouth. We ordered the bourbon butter cake with a full serving of ice cream, indicating to waiter that we wanted to eat them together. Cake arrived, but no ice cream. We waited ten minutes for the ice cream to arrive, only to have it arrive melting. Should have sent it back, but didn't want to wait any longer. Then felt even angrier when the bill arrived and I saw we paid $7 for one scoop of half melted ice cream! Waiter really shouldn't have even served it. We go to steakhouses all around the country, and the Eddie Merlot chain isn't the best bang for your buck anymore; second time in a row we've been disappointed.
When we arrived, on time, I dropped my wife off so she could go in & I went to park my vehicle. When I walked in nobody asked me if they could help me or even if I was looking for someone. I then walked into the restaurant & found my wife. She told me when she walked in & gave her name, the gentleman at the host stand said OK, then left her & went & got 2 other couples from the bar & sat them. He returned to the host stand & didn't say a word to my wife. She finally asked if she was going to be seated? He looked at her & said, Oh Yes. Then took her in.
I didn't get what I ordered which was the 10oz Filet with just Caramelized Onions, no Mushrooms, Bearnaise & Peppercorn. My wife ordered the Bison Filet with Mushrooms & Caramelized Onions. When our waiter delivered the food, she had no Mushrooms, just Onions & mine was all Mushrooms, no Onions & was the Bone In Filet. When my wife mentioned about the Mushroom & Onions being wrong on both orders the waiter took both meals back before I could tell him it was the wrong Filet. When he returned I informed him that I ordered the 10oz Filet. He offered to take it back & cut it off the bone or to cook a new one. Since we had waited about 20 minutes for the main courses after our salads, I opted to just eat the Bone-In Filet & it didn't have the Peppercorn. The waiter offered to adjust the price & I told him that wasn't my concern. In the end he adjusted the prices & also gave us a complimentary Creme Brûlée.
On the positive side, all of the food from the bread to salads & the main dishes were excellent! The Bone-In Filet was actually very tender. My wife's Bison Filet was outstanding. Everything was cooked properly. Also the Asparagus were great!
I also want to say our waiter was very attentive, always checked on us, had a great personality & I would like to have him again as our waiter. This was our 1st time here but we'll definitely be back.
By far the best culinary establishment I have had the pleasure of dining. My wife, son, daughter, and myself enjoyed the even flow of the evening. The constant attention by our server, Kate, made the experience delightful. The lobster, which I had, was a sweet culinary delight, and the bison steak my son had was done to perfection. My wife and daughter had steak with mushrooms, which both enjoyed very much. From the time we entered Eddie Merlot's until we left, the service could not have been any better. I want to thank all your staff for their efforts to make Saturday night a true adventure in hospitality and culinary night to remember... Again, thank you, and we hope to return soon....
