Eddie V's - 5th Street
Simply OutstandingI booked Eddie V's for our first engagement anniversary as I heard it recieved steller reviews, if you loved seafoodand are looking for a fine dinning experience this is the place for you. This not a cheap place however you will be bowled by the standard of the cuisine the presentation and waiter service which led to an unforgettable dinning experience.
My fiance and I both started with oysters and the calamari which was superb, this was followed by scallops and swordfish, every dish was delectable and a pleasure to the palette. As I live in Scotland I made the booking on-line the process was straightforward and simple.
If you want to share a special meal in Austin I would not hesitate to recommend this place you will not be disappointed!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent asThe food was excellent as I would expect from a high-end steakhouse. The service was exemplary and our server, Jaime, made the night even more pleasant with her upbeat personality. The wine lprices are on the higher end. The dessert of bananas foster cake is one of a kind. I order bananas foster often at restaurants and I have never seen it prepared this way where a butter cake sits in the fosters sauce with bananas atop the cake and then rum is lit with fire and poured over the dessert. you eat it avfter the flames extinguish in a few seconds leaving a rum soaked warm cake to eat with your bananas foster.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSurpriseI surprised my daughter by flying her dearest friend out from California to eat at Eddie V's. The reservation was made months in advance. She was so happy with her surprise and with the opportunity to introduce her friend to Eddie V's. The evening and meal were fabulous.......6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks for the special anniversaryGreat work on the rose pedals and our server was great.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasedWe had a large group there for dinner the other night. We were all quite impressed and our waitress, Katie, was superb. I like Eddy V's'; the tablecloths, the bread service, the ambiance, the food, the friendly folk...it just all works for me.
I tried a new dish for me, Chilean Sea Bass in wine and lemon broth. It was good, but not as spectacular as some of the other dishes I have devoured. Still, there were enough "oooh and ahhh" dishes rolling out to our table to still give this restaurant a very high mark for overall quality and a smiley face for the enjoyment factor.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNice night outEddie V's is a nice place to go for a special occasion or to enjoy a nice evening out. Delicious food. Exceptional service.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIts Hoppin'I had fun, lots of energy, great piano jazz music, good food, a staff that accommodated my luggage in the wine cellar - hey now that is service !6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find :)We we’re racing at Cota F1 Track for the weekend and dined 2 nights in a row with group. Restaurant was very accommodating. From the Steaks to Seafood, everything was enjoyable. It was nice to see all of our Calif. Wine on lists too!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat a great place to eat.what a great place to eat. we are from Michigan and went there because of a recommendation by the avis car lady. right from the waiter shaking hands to introduce himself as Jason to the flashlight over the bowl of soup to watch him season it , it truly was a GREAT time. Our bill was 52 dollars on half price starters and soup and we were stuffed. We will be looking for this place in san Antonio and if you are in Austin, with all the restaurants, you need to go here!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!We had our Anniversary dinner there and everything was amazing! From the service to the food absolutely too notch. Everyone really made sure that this dinner was special to the both of us! It was our first time there and it definitely will not be the last!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular Anniversary DinnerWe celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. Every member of the staff went to great lengths to ensure our visit was not just special, but memorable.....and it was. The crab cakes were fantastic and some of the freshest we have ever had. The Bananas Foster dessert was absolutely phenomenal. Even Days later we are craving a return trip to Austin from Houston just to dine at Eddy V's.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistentEvery time my husband and I go to EV's we are pleased. Excellent service, friendly staff, and the food is always in recredible. The atmosphere is very romantic also and we love the music. I will always recommend EV's. M Crowe.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMmusicAs usual, we loved our evening at Eddie V's. We had a wonderful waiter, Jason, and he took great care of all 6 of us making sure that everything we ordered was done exactly as we asked. The food was delicious, as always. Eddie V's is one of our favorite for special occasions and for those romantic evenings out. The only thing that disappointed us was the combo playing that evening. We always sit in the lounge because we enjoy the music and had even requested it for that evening. However, the group that played on Saturday night was large and very loud. When they played, you could not even talk to your table mates! All in all though, we had a wonderful evening.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible Lobster & FiletI don't know how they can have incredible meals every single time you go there. The waiter Jason was fantastic and the General Manager James Powers even stopped by to make sure everything was perfect. The Lobster was so moist and succulent that I asked the Gm how they make that happen, unfortunately I don't have the 1800 degree broiler to replicate the meal. Their Banana's Foster is the best in the world. WC6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMimpectable serviceLuigi and the other waiters/waitresses was fantastic. knowledge of the menu was excellent5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie V'sAs always, the food was exceptional.

Always trust the chef''s choice at this location!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service Great FoodAll around great experience.... our waiter was helpful and super attentive....steaks and seafood fantastic5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice!This was a great experience, my wife and I went here for our 1st anniversary this weekend - really wonderful!
Our server was Eric - well done sir.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryCelebrated my Anniversary there and had a great dinner. The staff went above and beyond with the rose pedal table presentation and Happy Anniversary Card. Which was a pleasant surprise to my spouse and I. Everyone from the hostess to the waiters were courtesies, nice and very knowledgeable on the menu, with great recommendations. I definitely recommend to family and friends and will dine their again.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the LoungeI love sitting in the Eddie V's lounge area - great music, great wine, and fantastic food. It's always a treat to hear the live band while enjoying such a high quality meal.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGo to RestaurantBeen going here off and on for 6 years on business travel. Seems remarkable to have consistency this high for this long. Menu all incredible. No weak spots. I look forward to this place when travelling to Austin for work. Staff is great. Sea Bass is better than most seafood in Honolulu.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSo goodWe came here for our anniversary. They put rose petals on our table and had a special note. The manager came by and showed personal attention. The food was amazing and our plate had happy anniversary written on it. Everyone was attentive and I did I mention the food was amazing! I would definitely come back even when not our anniversary. Our waiter offered to take our picture which was sweet. My husband said the steak was one of the best he's ever had.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMService oriented restaurantMy wife and I love seafood, but seldom get to eat any. We had heard good things about Eddie V's and decided to try it for our anniversary. We expected the food would be fabulous (it was) but what really surprised me was the customer service. From the moment we arrived, the staff was extremely friendly and eager to please. Our table was ready within 5 minutes of our reservation and we received a table with covered with rose petal and a signed card from the staff. In addition, Eddie V's provided us with a complimentary dessert.
The wait staff kept our glasses full and were on top of everything. In general the service was great.
The food was also awesoeme. Fresh and flavorful. We had the scallops and halibut. Amazing, Top notch.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!Here for a convention and ended up eating here 2 nights in a row because food was so good and ambiance was better! Recommend sitting in lounge area to enjoy the live music!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWe four enoyed our dinner. The service was mostly very good. Dessert (creem brulee) was slow, and it was served cold with four warm plates. Not sure why! It was very noisy, not the ideal place for a romantic dinner. Overall, it was good, but not really excellent, which is what we'd expect for this expensive restaurant!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie V's is my favorite restaurantEvery time I've come to Eddie V's, I've always had a great experience. The service is so great that I just feel comfortable dining there. There have been two separate dining instances (one in Houston and one in Austin) where I have asked the server to provide a scallop appetizer dish and both chefs has always accommodated by creating a delicious scallop appetizer for me. Eddie V's truly values customer satisfaction and it shows through the food and service. I ordered the filet mignon as my entree and ordered side dishes for my party--the crab fried rice is too die for. Eddie V's has the best filet mignon. I ordered medium rare, and although it came out a little on the rare side this one time, it was still delicious. Highly recommended!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Special Date Night!Totally worth the once or twice a year dinner out --- the bar does have a great happy hour menu and drink specials!! We will make it in to Eddie V's more often. Our evening was an event started with cocktails in the bar with snacks. Once we got to our table, had the "special appetizer" and ordered our dinners --- bother were seafood and it was prepared percetly. Not over cooked and seasoned perfectly!! The dessert was AMAZING!! It was a salty sweet custard like treat!! Oh, I can't wait to go back for another!! Thank you Eddie V's on Fifth Street for making our special night out --- REALLY SPECIAL!!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat bar, great serviceWe made reservations for my birthday and got to the restaurant early to have a drink at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and introduced himself. He had a great balance for being friendly but not interfering with your conversation. Afterwards we were seated at a tiny little table in the corner. I could have rubbed knees with the woman sitting at the table next to us. I know they were trying to seat as many customers as possible at one time, but it was a little uncomfortable trying to get in and out of the table without bumping the table next to me.
Our waiter was very friendly and hospitable. The food and wine was great. I would definitely go back for a special occasion.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie is a little unsteadyThis was our first time at Eddie V's.The menu was large with lots of interesting choices. We live on the East Coast so we were anxious to check out the seafood. Our waiter was friendly in a professional waiter kind of way . The fried oysters were the best that I have ever tasted and I have eaten many. My friend said that the mushroom salad was just okay. I am sorry to say that the fish dishes that we ordered were more or less "fried fish" entrees and could have been seasoned and sauced more creatively. Our special pre-ordered chocolate cake was fabulous and a surprise gift from the restaurant when we quietly mentioned that we were celebrating an occasion. We wanted to love Eddie and we kind of do. We just think it could be so much better.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie V's Excellent!We were very well taken care of by our waitress and the Valet Service was excellent as well! Thanks!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAWSOME FOODSome of the best food I have ever had. Can't wait to go back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryWe went to this restaurant for our 37th anniversary. Table was decorated with rose pedals and a card sign by the staff. Food was great and waiters outstanding.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. SeatingGreat food and service. Seating a bit confused at the front desk ... not up to a great restaurant of this quality.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Quality FoodI found the food quality at Eddie V's to be outstanding. We as a table had the Maryland Crab Cakes (the best crab cakes I believe I've had outside of Maryland), Potstickers, Calamari, several steaks, and Ahi Tuna. All was excellent, and with the exception of a few items on the menu I found the pricing to be under control. An exceptional choice for business dinners and special occassions.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, as usualWe made reservations in the main dining room in celebration of my wife's 50th birthday month :)
The crab and corn soup was perfect and the Caesar Salad used the leafy ends of the romaine. My wife ordered the sea bass and I had the fillet with shrimp in a cajun butter special. Both meals were fantastic as well as the twice stuffed potatoes and beets.
We have eaten here several times and always have come away with fond memories of our time together along with great service and food.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Must Stop Restaurant in AustinAny time I travel from Philadelphia to Austin one of the most fun evenings I look forward to is Happy Hour and dinner at Eddie V's ....Tomahawk Rib Eye is TO DIE FOR.........I wrap remnants up and keep in my hotel fridge and pack them in my luggage for my Dog back home.

Food was awesome. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion. I appreciate being seated in a quiet booth. Too many times even fancy restaurants are too noisy but we were seated well. I really liked booking on Open Table. So much simpler.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the bucksEddie V's offers some of the best appetizers, seafood, steaks, desserts and beverages in town. The service is impeccable without being intrusive. The ambiance is cozy enough though a bit loud. It's worth what you pay and is a great place to celebrate special occasions.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience overall!Great experience overall! Fabulous service. Our server was super helpful, professional and very personable. Only complaint was that my food came out a bit cold. They immediately fixed this though once I mentioned it.

The only negative criticism was the the shrimp was slightly overlooked. It should also be noted that the portions were very large.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous meal & serviceThe food was incredible. I had the Chilean Sea Bass but with the garlic and chive reduction instead of the Asian style that is on the menu. The corn chowder was wonderful and the truffle Mac & cheese was heavenly! The only thing better than the food was the exceptional service. Our waiter was knowledgable, friendly and very attentive without being overbearing. Now my favorite place in Austin!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie V's is a great placeEddie V's is a great place for doing business over dinner and unwinding in the bar.
