    our waiter was Eric. He was superb. Attentive, professional and knew the menu and wine list inside and out. the service was exceptional. And by far the best ever service of meat ever. we were asked when presented with steak, filet, rib eyes etc.. Were they cooked they way we wanted. When a few plates were not dead on, they were immediately taken, fixed and replaced. I have been in every top steak restaurant there is. I have never ever seen this level of service. I was very impressed. Thank you!!

    Went for our anniversary and were treated like royalty from the moment we entered. Angela our waitress was very friendly and guided us through the various menu options without being pushy. I had the filet mignon and my wife had the sea bass. Both were excellent. The side dishes and wine choices were also great. It was our first time since we were just visiting Austin. Would not hesitate to come back.

    This is the place to go in the Convention Center area of Austin. Don't worry about portions. Small means it easily serves two. The food is cooked to perfection and the service is great. Jeff was particularly noteworthy. He didn't lead us wrong, gave great recommendations and made us feel like he has known us forever. Your name is quickly learned and used frequently. You are not crowded and while there is excitement, it is never uncomfortable to hear your dinner partner even across the table. Will definitly go back next time I am in Austin

    This is far from my first time at Eddie V's, but I hadn't been in six months or so--and it was even better. The service this time was nothing short of incredible, and my grouper and my husband's swordfish were absolutely delicious. Not cheap, but worth every penny, and it won't be six months before I go back again.

    We were sat... And waited...and waited, (many white coats walked by and ignored us) finally the host that sat us asked a server to greet us. She (blonde short hair)brought dinner menus... But no cocktail list so we had to wait for that. Came over with a pitcher of ice water (why would you do that? try to upsell!) & asked what type of water we wanted.. We said sparkling.. She gave us option of Panna or Pelligrino.. Pretty sure panna is still water by Pelligrino. Finally Yolanda came by to say she was taking care of us with 2 other servers (never introduced themselves) When asked about ingredients in items (clam chowder) she didn't know. By that time we were ready to order. Our apps came out before our drinks. She was nice but service was bad

    My husband and I celebrated our 42 wedding anniversary with you Saturday night. What a lovely surprise to see rose petals on our table! Angela was knowledgeable and attentive. Her suggestions were perfect. We had a perfect night. Dinner was an explosion of fabulous! My husband loved the rice. His steak and shrimp were perfection. My martini was dry and icy and the crab was abundant. Can't get any better than that.

    This was absolutely the most enjoyable restaurant experience that I have had in years. I definitely needed to say that first!!!!! From the moment I walked in, they had a birthday card ready for my date, since it was his birthday! And I mean an actual card. I had two waiters which were Joe and Jeff. Two very different personalities, but the both made my night !!!! Jeff was definitely energetic and personable, easy going, and dead on point with what we needed at the table. Joe was very professional, made sure he checked on us in a timely manner, made sure the table was clean, just amazing!!! I definitely plan to visit the one in Dallas and see if the service is comparable. The food was amazing too! Especially the dessert!!!

    My wife and I visited Eddie V's on a trip advisor recommendation. We were not disappointed. The menue had many steak and seafood choices. Our waiter, Jeff, couldn't have better. The appetizer was a shrimp special with Texas seasonings which was spectacular. My wife ordered halibut. Jeff suggested a topping not on the menue and it was great. I had grouper which was the best I ever had. Jeff suggested the crab fried rice as a side. It was incredible. So were the red beats, best we ever had. Being my wife's birthday , we were given a complimentary desert. We left Jeff choose and he presented us with a flaming bananas foster. All in all , big portions and one of the top 10 meals I have ever eaten. Don't miss this place.

    We are from Montana and were visiting our daughter in Austin. I wanted a great meal before we left and decided to try Eddie V's. It was the perfect choice! Flawless service, the best food I have ever had and we travel a lot, great atmosphere. They were willing to tailor the food to fit everyone's taste. One of our dining mates asked for a dessert no longer on the menu and they made it for us and brought it out with 6 forks. Does it get better then that?

    My boyfriend and I went for his birthday, and the service was incredible! I think every worker wished him a happy birthday, and they even gave us complimentary champagne and dessert...not to mention a birthday card! It was so special! Although the menu is pricey, the service makes up for it completely! Looking for a special occasion dinner? Eddie V's is definitely it!

    I travel to Austin often. If you want a great steak or grilled fish with a cool jazz bar this is your place. I have gone to this restaurant on dates or with a group of friends and always had a great time. The steaks are always prepared to your liking and the sides are large so you can share. The staff is always on their game. We can make a whole evening just at this restaurant.

    Whenever we have something to celebrate or just want an outstanding meal we head to Eddie V's. We have been dining there for as long as it's been open. Our favorite is the seafood. It is always exquisitely prepared and the flavor is amazing. This last time we had the cold crab appetizer and for our entrees we had the sea bass and the swordfish. We felt very special as we celebrated our anniversary and received a complimentary glass of champagne and desert of our choice. And the live music was terrific. All and all, a fabulous evening.
