    This was my first time at Eddie V's - I was celebrating my birthday. Our hostess was accommodating when I requested to change our table. The manager on duty was extremely friendly and very kind. Our waiter was pleasant, knowledgeable and checked in on us frequently and the food was plain and simple outstanding -- so delicious. Can't wait to go back!!!

    We took a business group to dinner at Eddie V's in Austin and it was a great experience. Someone from our group had been to another Eddie V's and knew the food would be fantastic and that was the case at this location. Our two servers (Jamie and Tisha) were excellent.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
