This was my first time dining at this restaurant. My job requires me to host a lot of business dinners in fine dining restaurants so I tend to have set expectations of what I think should be a standard of quality. This evening was a fun night out with couples and we all had cocktails, appetizers and entrees. The restaurant... More

My girlfriend and I dine out fairly often. For special events such as birthday or anniversary we go to more upscale places. Since it was our anniversary and we had a couple recommendations we thought we would give EM's a try. I made reservations for 7:00 on 1/28/17. We arrived just before 7:00 and despite a reservation issue with the... More

Dined at Eddie Merlot's last night for my birthday. This was our first -- and probably our last -- visit to this restaurant. We were seated in a dining area off of the bar, which was very busy. Noise level loud and hard to talk with friends we were with. Not sure if the main dining room would have been... More

We had been to the restaurant a while ago and ate in the large dining room that had very few diners. This time we requested the lounge area and loved the cozy feel. We had just seen a movie and didn't want a full meal and the menu was perfect. The martinis were delicious and very generous portions. The blue... More

Austin was our server and he could not have been nicer. We had Filet Mignon pot stickers, which were good, but the calamari was AMAZING!!!! Its served in a rice sesame bowl, a beautifully presented. I had NO idea that this was a steak and seafood place, but I would highly recommend it!

Food was exquisite, had the Waldorf salad and sea bass. The pineapple infused vodka was very tasty. Service and atmosphere were top notch. Also met a stakeholder in the business and was impressed with his attention and efforts.

It's a beautiful restaurant with exceptional food and service. The steaks and pork chops were high quality, as was everything else that came with the meal. The onion soup, iceberg salad and lobster bisque was a good start to the meal. The sides were a generous size and good to share. We especially enjoyed the mac and cheese. Creme Brulee... More

Outstanding selection of steaks with even higher end options too; prime meat is just the beginning. Our waiter Ted was very nice and helpful with menu choices. They have a Mariachi who played very well with a wide selection, we never heard the same song repeated. Wasn't crowded for a Friday night which we wondered why but guessed due to... More

My wife and I ate here the other night. Nothing special, just a "date night". It can be a bit hard to find because it is in a shopping mall that looks sort of unpromising but it is worth the trip. There is a small dining room, a nice bar with table service, and some private dining rooms. The first... More

We went for a birthday celebration. Table ordered a mix of fish and steak dishes. My fish was a little dry and bland, but the steak I tried was amazing. The kids menu even has a steak and veggie option for those, like mine, who never goes for chicken fingers and fries. The portions are good, just this side of... More
