I had dinner at the bar. Their wine list is very standard with NYC prices for both bottles and glasses. Their lounge menu doesn't have anything impressive on it. Regarding the service, horrible. The bar wasn't all that packed and two people couldn't handled the volume. I waited to place my drink order and after I placed my entered order... More

I take my wife here when we are in Columbus. The ambiance and food are amazing. The wine selection is also great. Perfect for any romantic dinner of special occasions

We meet our daughter for dinner this Friday evening before attending an OSU football game. There was relatively no waiting, approximately 10-15 minutes and the front desk staff was very accommodating. Once seated our server, Ted was very professional and not overly attentive as he could see we were enjoying talking with our daughter. Very nice drink and wine list... More

Was served a big, under cooked piece of stinking fish. And, basically did not do anything about it. Brought us an extra side, but could not eat the fish.

We got reservations for dinner and it's probably a good thing because they were very busy. We eat here on our yearly girls shopping trip! The Eddies potatoes are to die for. The mashed potatoes weren't so good this time. Our filet was delicious! A little pricey but worth it!

We had a terrific waiter but the food was definitely not cutting it for the price we had to pay. Good portions just not tasty.

Had a business meeting there the other night and we just sat in the longs area and had drinks and appetizers. Very nice setting, and the food was very well presented and delicious. Service was great and would highly recommend. Will be back again soon.

The food was TO DIE FOR from the bread, filet mignon, lobster tail, bbq bacon wrapper shrimp, baked potato, creme brulee, and bannas foster. The menu had so many good options I could've tried it all! the setting was beautiful, and... More

We had reserved in person a table in one of the few quieter areas of this barn of a restaurant more than a week ahead. The message was forgotten and we were seated in the middle of the main dining room which is about as noisey as a football game in Ohio Stadium. Our complaints fell on deaf ears. Only... More

This is one of my favorite Steak Houses in Columbus. It has a great bar if you are dinning alone. This visit I brought some out of town guests who have never eaten at Eddie Merlot's. We had a reservation for 7 people on a Friday night. One person cancelled at the last minute. I called them 2 hours ahead... More
