Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef and Seafood starts with U.S.D.A. Prime Beef. Only 2% of all U.S. beef is awarded this superior certification. Eddie Merlot’s ages the beef naturally to an unparalleled standard of tenderness and flavor. The chef then personally selects each piece for the optimum proportion of marbling, and texture, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender, and juicy steaks to your specifications. To seal in the flavor, the steak is flash-sear on high-heat grills. Eddie Merlot’s has created one of the hottest concepts today; the wine bar provides more than 40 wines by the glass and a very extensive reserve wine collection by the bottle. The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot’s boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

We were two couples and we really enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent and the food was too! It was Sunday, so there were selected wines 1/2 off list price, we took advantage of that and had a nice bottle of wine with our dinners. We will definitely return again soon.

The decor looks like an upscale Cheesecake Factory. The music was early 80s, which felt a bit weird to be honest. As we were seated, Debbie Gibson was loudly playing. My husband’s steak was supposed to be medium and although it came out pre-sliced it was rare at best. I had fish so I kept eating so it wouldn’t get cold as he waited for a replacement dish. This is known as a steak place. Not getting it right — after you slice the entire piece of filet — shouldn’t happen. It meant that we each awkwardly sat while the other ate on their own. It put a damper on the experience. Our waiter also removed all of our glasses by mistake so when he went to bring our wine and water he pulled them off of another table in front of us. He also came back to check our menu after he forgot which wine we ordered. It just seems like a lot of missteps for a meal that was that expensive. We will stick to eating in the bar at happy hour if we come back.

Great food, very good service. It is a nice establishment, and the prices certainly deserve a nice atmosphere, so it can be a bit disconcerting to see some patrons come in wearing inappropriate clothing (short-shots, flip flops, etc.).

We are never disappointed with the Eddie Merlot's at One Loudoun, particularly when we sit in Mark or Tim's sections. These two guys understand the formal dining environment and really add to the experience. When I get treated this well, I enjoy every bite of my meal and tend to make room for the great coffee and desserts.

While it was father's day, the restaurant did not look overly crowded. After ordering, we waited at least 30 minutes before our waitress stopped by to tell us our food was still coming. A good 15 minutes later, our food arrived. My friend's steak looked good but mine was overcooked. I didn't send it back as I had waited long enough. I had also ordered the shrimp wrapped in bacon. The shrimp were overcooked and the bacon was undercooked in places. It was my birthday dinner and I was so excited for a good meal. Perhaps my expectations were too high but I was incredibly disappointed with both the food and the service?

Very disappointed. Two of our three meals had to be sent back multiple times and the kitchen could not cook our Filet's more than rare. I know everyone has a different concept of 'doneness' for their steaks but when you ask for medium well and it's served rare- 3 times- that's just not right. Having the meal comped was okay but it ruined our 'special' Father's Day dinner.

We went to Eddie Merlots for the first time Saturday to celebrate our 33 Anniversary. Our appetizers and desserts were very good. Out entrees not so good. For a restaurant that advertises themselves as a Prime Aged Beef & Seafood restaurant, the beef was not very good. I ordered A filet, medium rare. There was nothing medium rare about the meat I was given. it was definitely well done. My husband order short ribs and they too were way over cooked. Not sure we will give them another chance. The prices are high and the food just not to good.

We were celebrating the birthday of one of our group, and in every way, this was a special meal! Our friends, who had not been to Eddie's, were very pleased and plan to return. Grilled romaine was outstanding, the filets are truly memorable, and the yellow fin tuna entree drew great raves. The service matches the quality of the food, and the decor is elegant , yet inviting. Can't wait for next time!

Simply Awesome! We were celebrating my son's graduation and my 14 year old daughter's promotion to high school. I thought they would like to experience a fancy restaurant since there isn't much room in the budget after paying for hockey, dance, crew, our home and all those other crazy expences we Loudoun parents endure--and I do it on my own!

My daughter loved it but my son is a simple young man...he just wanted a burger. Our waiter Dan overheard our discussion and presented him with a "special" menu that had a burger on it! Without prompting! THAT'S SPECIAL!

It was a wonderful way to mark the end of my son's childhood. Thank you, Dan! Thank you Eddie Merlot's! The food and service was top notch and well worth the experience! Pam, Jordan, Madi and Granny 😍❤

Biggest disappoint was the mediocre service. Waiter was unenthusiastic in serving us, slow response: We had to ask for bread and even dessert menues. We expect better service for such high prices . A;lthough the reservation allowed us to indicate this was a special ocassion, it was not acknowledged by the staff. We have no desire to celebrate special events again at this restaurant.
