Diner Reviews
  • "A remarkable experience of a wide variety of innovative dishes made with fresh seafood that is flown in daily! Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "Went for our anniversary and was blown away by the service and food. Literally made our next reservation after we got our bill which wasnt bad either!"

  • "Great food and even better service. Yolanda was nearly perfect. The room itself can use a bit of a refresh, but everything else was superb. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Went to celebrate our anniversary and at the table they had it covered with rose petals and a personalized greeting. We both had fish and it was cooked to perfection. The waiter was outstanding and we had a wonderful night."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "While Eddie V's appeared to be primarily a seafood restaurant, we had the 8 oz. filets and they were cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend the twice baked potato and the banana upside down cake, if they have it!"

  • "I've been to Eddie V's many times. My husband and I consider it our "go to" place for special occasions. We celebrated my birthday on Saturday, August 16th. Our waiter was extremely knowledge and friendly. Everything was great - food, wait staff, music. We always dine in the V lounge because it offers music and we just (overall) like the lounge better. Thanks for memorable birthday."

  • "To celebrate my daughter and her best friend leaving for college (first time being apart since they were little), our families went to Eddie V's and everything about the evening was perfect. Ease in making reservation, staff friendliness, wine, THE FOOD! Everyone raved about the food. Then our daughters were brought special desserts (enough for the table to share) on the house and that definitely capped off a great experience. I am trying to think of another "excuse" to go again very soon!"

  • "As parents of two young children, we don't get a lot of opportunities to have a nice, quiet dinner any more. When we do, we expect to have a great experience. Unfortunately, there have been a few times recently where we have been let down at restaurants at which we previously had great experiences. Fortunately Eddie V's has never let us down. Our last meal at Eddie V's was outstanding. We didn't like our dessert all that much, but that was probably our misunderstanding of the dish we ordered vs. our expectations (I forget the name...key lime something...we were expecting a key lime pie but just didn't read the description closely enough). Thanks Eddie V's. Please keep up the good work!"

  • "A very special friend was visiting from Dallas and we met at Eddie V's for dinner. We began with the "out of this world" crab cakes. Best ever and not to be missed. The pinot grigio wine we selected was value priced and very nice. My filet was perfectly prepared, tender, and delicious. The wait staff can "make or break" a great dining experience and ours was a 10+"

  • "This restaurant is a classic. The menu is great steaks, a long list of amazing seafood, appealing and modern side dishes and a high quality wine list. It is also very pricey. We did not skimp: a dozen oysters, two huge steaks and two sides with a total of five glasses of wine. We skipped dessert. The bill was well north of $300 with tip. However, it was one of the few times I have paid that much with no regrets. The service was probably the best I have ever had in Austin. Every dish was perfectly seasoned and cooked exactly as ordered. The red wine was the correct temperature. We took home two boxes with enough food for lunch the next day. I would highly recommend Eddie V's for a special occasion or if you want to really impress."

  • "I asked for a quiet corner table as we were celebrating our anniversary. We got that, plus so much more - champagne, and a fab chocolate dessert - on the house!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "the seafood dishes can only be described as exquisite. Crab cake is all crab - seasoned just enough. Crab fried rice is unmatched as is the tuna;"

  • "It was summer and we wore sleeveless tops and it was extremely cold."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Every single time I dine at this restaurant, I am happier than the last! Most places like this are overrated - priced too high for average food. Not this place! The food is just perfect. The service is fantastic! Not pretentious at all! Definitely my favorite restaurant in Austin, hands down!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Everything.....I mean EVERYTHING was perfect! My girlfriend enjoyed it to the highest. The steak was cooked perfectly can't say enough about it."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Eddie V's continues to have exceptional service from valet through desert. Our wine was special & food was rich & fabulous. Our waitress made sure we had plenty of time to make our second function. This is a wonderful place for special occasions or a relaxing dinner."

  • "We have been to Austin location at least 10 times and love it! The only thing missing is the rooftop scenic view of the La Jolla location. Their retaurants are consistant with their food prep though menus vary. Always a delight on the "MUST" have dinner there list - Enjoy!"

  • "Everything about the evening was perfect. The wait staff were patient, friendly, fun and attentive. The food and drink was all perfect. Thank you!!"

  • "The staff at Eddie V's are amazing. They were very busy but made us feel like we were the only customers. Adam, our server, was so knowledgable and attentive without being annoying. Our celebration of a special occasion was accented by a wonderful meal and evening."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The food and wine selections were excellent. Service was 5 star. $10 for valet parking...come on, it should be complimentary with the prices being charged."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Everything from the Kacey the bartender to our waitress was seamless. Great service. Food was delicious, brought out in a timely manner. Everyone was on their toes! Valet was fast and courteous. We will come back as we have for years. We actually live closer to the North location but prefer downtown Eddie V's..... except maybe when South by is going on! Thank you all for a wonderful experience"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We had an amazing experience for our first Eddie V's outing. The service, food, and setting were exceptional. We dined in the lounge with live band and a vibrant crowd. The dining room offered a quieter atmosphere. We had a filet, steamed Chilean sea bass, and an 18oz lobster tail (yes....eighteen). We definitely recommend Eddie V's!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We are new to Austin so difficult to accurately rate the food. Things seemed a little over done. Too much on the salads, too much sauce on the fish for my taste. The quality of the seafood was excellent. The service very good. Huge portions. They were very busy on a Tuesday."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Our waiter, Alex, was sharp on the details; impressive in every way. Excellent service over all & delicious food. Celebrated our Anniversary and the staff made note of this with well wishes, from the moment we walked through the door, to the table anniversary card, surrounded by Rose petals, to our waiter congratulating us, to the Complimentary Banana's Foster at the end. A fantastic experience."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Loved the Parmesan crusted Sole, and the steak was really good too. They made a special dessert plate for my sweeties birthday. Our waiter was very attentive and pleasant as well. There's no view and it gets a little loud, but overall a nice place for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I choose Eddie V's to celebrate out anniversary and couldn't be happier. We received a complimentary toast and dessert of our choice. The service and attention to detail was beyond amazing. We also got engaged that same night prior to dinner and it really was a wonderful place to end the evening. I would definitely go back again and thank to our waiter Alec for making it a special evening for us."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Eddie V's is our first choice for fine dinning in the downtown area. Situated in the middle of the night life the downtown area has to offer, Eddie V's is a prime starter for what could be a fabulous evening. The professionalism of the wait staff provides a consistent and friendly service experience from beginning to end. What brings us back every time is the stunning menu selection prepared to perfection. There is no question if we will ever be back only a question of when."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Great evening with my wife. No special occasion, but this was out first time. Drinks and food were outstanding. My wife had Salmon and I had the Ahi Tuna and we both were very pleased with the meal. We shared the chocolate cake dessert and it was outstanding. All in all it was a great evening. It was a little pricey but will probably go back."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Amazing restaurant, great service, food out of this world! I marked "vibrant bar scene" but really it's "Cool bar scene" for adults. The kind of restaruant that can be great for everyday happy hour, or special occasion go-to."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We love Eddie Vs. It's just that simple. The food is always terrific, the service is always outstanding, and the experience is always rewarding. While we typically prefer the Arboretum location (more locals/fewer tourists/fewer polico types), we went downtown the other night around 9PM for dinner. While typically loud, the restaurant wasn't packed and it was a far better experience overall than previous dinners downtown. The menu has a wide variety of excellently prepared seafood. The steaks are supposedly great and I always think I should try one, but it's just too tough to move away from the seafood. Austin does not have many good seafood restaurants, but this one is by far the best."

  • "The bartenders are seasoned pros and it is hopping. Our dinner server was nice but not a pro yet. But definite potential. Nice evening, good food. Sole was over prepared for such a delicate fish."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Although I've eaten at Eddie V's before- for business and social stuff, I made an effort to make this special for my GF's birthday, by calling ahead and letting them know it was her birthday. When we got there I felt the table they sat us in was not the most desirable, and it took a while to get the server over for our drinks. After I brought his MIA status up when he came over he was attentive from there on. Nevertheless, I felt that by advertising that it was her birthday, we were treated as "non regular" customers (IE not as valuable)- I ordered a dessert and they delivered (and they even comp'd it) overall very good, but act like a regular to get a good table."

  • "Always order seafood fare and the twin Lobster tails were perfectly prepared and excellent. I was later told that the 49 day aged filets are the best anywhere and we plan to go back an find out. They have the twice baked potatoes but we miss the basic crispy outside baked potatoes for steak fare. Still wondering why you can't get the once baked potato?"

  • "I came here to celebrate my boyfriend's bday. Food = 3. Service = 5. Ambience = 3. Food was a mixed bag. The crab cake appetizer was delicious! Huge lumps of crab meat and practically no fillers. Meal breakdown: 8 oz. steak = cooked perfectly. Lobster tails = gross. So disappointingly overcooked that they were crispy on the outside and tough on the inside. My boyfriend spit out the piece I gave him to try to make sure I wasn't crazy. So, we sent that back. They sent over another set of lobster tails. That one was still overcooked! I was over the lobster tails at this point and chose the scallops, which were cooked perfectly...except they were drenched in a butter sauce. Service was great but inconsistent with seafood."

  • "Every time I come to Austin for business, I make a stop at Eddie V's. It has become one of my favorite restaurants while traveling. The service is spectacular from entering the front door until the bill arrives. It is truly and enjoyable dining experience with delicious food. Eddie V's is a place that I always recommend to anyone staying in Austin. After dinner there is always a vibrant night life in downtown Austin if you care to experience what Austin has to offer."

  • "The food and service was a complete joy. We were celebrating a birthday of our son and the server was wonderful and brought out a cream brulee decorated birthday plate. The men had bone in ribeyes and they had exceptional taste. I had a redfish dish that was superb. We will definitely return. The Moore's"
