This is our new favorite place to go for good seafood and relaxing atmosphere.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatEvery time we good to Eddie V's for special occasions and they never disappoint us. First off the food is just AMAZING!! There are other places we have gone to in this price range but Eddie V's food beats them hands down. We get there early to sit at the bar for drinks and apps and the bar staff is great they most by name and will treat you great any drink on the menu is great but they will make you anything you want and if you are not sure they will surprise you and I have not had anything I didn't like.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThere is something missing!Since the change in ownership the crab claws have disappeared from the menu. GET THEM BACK!!
Also our table was not ready when we arrived and we waited about 20 minutes for our reservation.
Otherwise, everything was phenomenal as usual.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a dinner for two. TheIt was a dinner for two. The tables seem a bit closer to each other. The service was fantastic. I am not sure that I care for the background music that they had. I enjoyed the filet mignon that I had. I especially like the fried rice. It is very different from any rice dishes that I ever tried and I am regular rice eater.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place has excellent seafoodThis place has excellent seafood and fresh, the Maui Tuna was a killer, a nice surprise, and the drinks are excellent. Superior service although it was rather slow so you ned to be patient. Looking forward to another visit soon.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional Food & ViewOnce again, an exceptional dinner. We prefer the Arboretum's gorgeous view and somewhat calmer setting, compared to the bustling 5th street location where valet parking is just about the only option. Our server was inattentive; our first experience for this in either location and we think, an anomaly. Even so, we enjoyed ourselves immensely and this is still one of our favourite restaurants in Austin. Highly recommended. Start with their wonderful happy hour.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellence is Eddie V's StandardI always enjoy looking at the extended wine list, but usually pick the Stags Leap Artemis. We took out time sipping the Artemis and munching on a perfectly chilled shrimp cocktail made with shrimp the size of chicken legs and sauces with fresh horseradish we mixed to our prefered strength. We also enjoyed the sashimi. My wife described it as "butter" because its so good it seems to melt in your mouth.
The ladies ordered small filets, which they said were delicious and I had the bone-in filet. I think it is the best cut of meat in town.
As usual, the service was impeccable and the manager, Roger Hernandez, always makes everyone feel special.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeds expectations!Always a delightful experience.

Our server was very sweet and brought out a special birthday dessert. The portions were much larger than expected which is always a nice surprise when the food is so delicious! Elements in the dishes complemented each other very nicely and there were no superfluous additions to take away from the flavor experience. Definitely a recommended spot!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent atmosphere and attentiveExcellent atmosphere and attentive service.

We had reservations at 7:30 pm and were waiting for 15 minutes when the hostess apologized. About 5 minutes later the manager came over and offered us drinks on the house and once our table was ready provided 3 appetizers on the house as well. We ordered steaks and they were excellant.

Very knowledgeable about the menu & specials. Bought dessert as an anniversary present. Asked to be seated with a view, request accomplished. Only negative about the experience, dining area was very loud. Not as quaint as hoped for but overall experience was very good.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is great, quantityThe food is great, quantity as well as quality. Service is impeccable. The only downside is that this restaurant is crowded and noisy even mid week. And it is not cheap.
Valet parking is necessary as there are few parking spots available between Eddie Vs and Z'Tejas.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding,The food was outstanding, but what I really want to brag about was our service.

Great restaurant in our neighborhood!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinner of your life!Every time I come here I get nothing but perfection. The food is amazing, to say the least. I always order the same thing and don't regret it!! I start with the lobster bisque (to die for), fried oysters, sea bass hong kong style, and the mac/cheese side to share! When I am able to eat dessert.. I go for the cobbler or the chocolate molten...
The have a great selection of red wine (particularly the pinot noirs) and inovative cocktails. Service is always excellent and view is amazing.
All of this only applies to the arboretum location.. I can't say that many good things about the downtown location (not nearly to par as this one).3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you for making our AnniversarThank you for making our Anniversary celebration special! We were seated on-time, great service and dinner was great. Thank you also, for a wonderful complimentary dessert which topped-off the evening...not expected.

It was fabulous, the best in town.
The waitstaff are attentive, friendly, and professional.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI just need to say here forI just need to say here for my birthday and it was AMAZING, the hosts was great he made sure we were pleased and comfortable. Especially when he realized I was not feeling well.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about this experienceEverything about this experience was phenomenal. This place knows how to balance excellent service with outstanding food. My family of 4 went here for the first time a week ago, and we all really enjoyed the experience. The waiter gave me two suggestions for wine, brought me the one that I chose, as well as a generous tasting of the other variety. We were also torn between two desserts, and the waiter brought us both. One of which was his treat!
I would certainly return to experience this food and service once again, in no way expecting the complimentary upgrades, and I am positive that we would still have an amazing experience once again!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTimely and DeliciousThe service was timely, the staff attentive and the food was delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and they took care of us. If you are looking for somewhere with rich tasting steak and seafood this is the place. We loved it.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
