    The food was mediocre, the ambiance rather tacky and the service very strange. In addition, they sat a table with a "Service Dog" near us.....it was clearly not a service dog....it was a small terrier with a vest on...it barked all during dinner and at one point ran to another table. The management did nothing. Then, one of the people at that table walked the dog around their section of the restaurant. FYI...Service Dogs are trained not to bark. These people were frauds.

    This was our first experience at Eddie V's, but it won't be our last. We thoroughly enjoyed the service, the seafood, and ambience. The setting is elegant but relaxed and the servers couldn't do enough to please us. My halibut special was perfectly seasoned and broiled. A great dining experience!

    This was a happenstance find through Open Table. I wanted Seafood and I wanted a bit upscale. This was both and done very very handsomely. I cannot overstate how excellent the service was (Waitstaff: Clark). I asked to time the courses so that there was time in between and he did with aplomb. I think the kitchen was forcing the orders out as the bisque bowl was over hot, but everything else was very very nicely done. A must go for excellent food and outstanding service.

    I had my birthday dinner in the semi-private dining area and it was amazing. Some favorites were: Fuji Apple Salad, Chilean Sea Bass, Pacific Ahi Tuna, Twice Baked Potato with Bacon and Chives, and the Crab Fried Rice with Mushrooms and Scallions. My guests and I enjoyed everything we ordered. The drinks were just right and the service was impeccable. My guests and I will definitely return.

    Stumbled upon this great place and so glad we did! The Maryland crab cake was out of this world.... The tuna was one of the best I have ever had. The Truffle Mac and Cheese... YUM! We also ordered the Calamari... It was good but a bit greasy and felt like there should be some kind of dipping sauce. I don't know if I would order that again, but everything else was amazing! We had reservations and sat at the bar waiting... saw a few open tables in the bar area and questioned the hostess if we could be seated in the bar area as there is live jazz music in there. They seated us right away. We so enjoyed that instead of being in the main dining room where you can't hear the music. Beautiful restaurant and Great food... Will definately be back!

    Phenomenal time at this chic/pricey place on a busy corner near the Mag. Mile. Food scrumptious, especially the appetizers. Service attentive and precise, but not too bothersome. Jazz in background unique/cool. Portions generous but not outrageous. Wine list impressive. One of our favorites !

    What a pleasant surprise to find out that Eddie V's opened in Chicago! Went there for dinner before Stevie Wonder and the whole experience was terrific. Our server, Elroy, was very attentive and open about the menu. We ordered the ahi tuna and halibut and both were fantastic with generous portions. Brussel sprouts were great and the bananas foster cake was amazing. This is now our favorite restaurant at this famous dining intersection!

    A group of 6 came to Eddie V's for dinner and we were delighted with the experience. The service was to notch with a wait staff that made you feel like someone of a high stature. The food was also fantastic. I would recommend the lobster tacos (cut into halves) and calamari for share plates. The tacos had a nice depth of flavor and were absolutely delicious. Calamari was grilled and paired with vegetables that brought out the complexity of the dish. I had a bone in ribeye and if you're even had this cut of steak its all you need to say... Delicious. My favorite side fish were the brussel sprouts as they were crispy and mixed with bacon. Great spot and great food.

    My wife and I really like Shaw's... and didn't think any other restaurant would come close. We decided to visit Eddie Vs since we didn't want to visit Shaw's 2 nights in a row. We were wonderfully surprised. The ambiance was very upscale but not stuffy, the wait staff was efficient and friendly, and the foot was just amazing. This restaurant has been added to our list of "must visit" locations.

    Outstanding restaurant. Our reservation time was spot on. We came per recommendations from friends who shared that it was their favorite. We agree. We like live music, and it was great. Food was more than expected. The crab cake appetizer was the best I can recall! The tuna was the best I have experienced in Chicago. The wine selection is a little on the light side, but we found what we like. We would highly recommend this. Make sure to reserve on open table ahead of time. It gets busy.

    My wife and I traveled to Chicago to celebrate our Anniversary and my birthday. We had originally tried to get in to another highly rated sea food restaurant, but were unable to get a reservation. No worries, as we went to Eddie V's. The meal, service, and experience exceeded our expectations. It is expensive, but well worth it. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any celebration, or a quiet dinner with your spouse.

    Spotty service and uneven preparation make for a work in progress with potential . The sleek decor upon entry and the bar/lounge with live music get high marks . However, the dining room needs to catch up. There are multiple levels in the dining room and waiters congregated a level above our table with personal conversations clearly audible ; our entrees ( Chilean sea bass and grouper ) were superb but our appetizer of fried oysters was not quite hot enough ; the same was true of the asparagus and au gratin potatoes that we ordered as sides. The wine list was quite good . We decided to order dessert to go and our bill was brought a good 15min before the dessert arrived . There was also extra time between courses . But We will return .

    Our server, Don, made the evening wonderful. His suggestions from the wine list an the food menu were spot on. He truly made the evening special. The 22-oz ribeye was fantastic, and the Maryland-style crab cake was one of the best I've had outside of Maryland. While we usually go for chocolate desserts, the butterscotch panna cotta was to die for.

    This restaurant was second to none. It was my husband's birthday so we decided to celebrate there. We had an awesome waiter named Elroy. He was very knowledgeable about every selection on the menu. He recommended awesome meals to choose. He was very personable too. He was open and honest about the menu. It was our first time there so it was important that we were directed to choose something that we would enjoy. The seafood was awesome! The shrimp, halibut, steak with lobster was exceptional. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to enjoy a scrumptious meal. It was a little pricey but it was worth it. This was one of the best restaurants we dined at in years!!!

    This was my first time at this Chicago Seafood eatery. Although the service was slow the quality of the entrees was worth it. The sides were somewhat common. Those that had dessert were very pleased. Bring your pocket lights and reading glasses as this is one of the more dimly lit places I have eaten in a while. I would definitely go back the next time I visit the area.

    For starters the restaurant was very warm. Our server was more interested in giving us his spiel, than paying attention to what was going on at our table. I guess by definition, my ribeye did have a bone in it, if you count the sliver of one the size of a string bean. Everyone else's meal was good, I just think they may have had an off night.

    I took my wife to Eddie V's on Sunday night and we had a fantastic experience. We expected a few hiccups since the restaurant recently opened, but we didn't experience any of the normal miscues. The waiter we had was tremendous; timely, knowledgeable, and courteous. My wife had the Chilean sea bass and I had the halibut. Both dishes were prepared perfectly, but if I had to pick I would say the sea bass is the best entrée on the menu. We finished our meals off with blackberry cobbler and the bananas foster...wow! wow! wow! Great experience, great service, great food.

    Had a reservation for 9pm, got to restaurant and table wasn't ready so waited at bar for 20 minutes. We decided to have dinner at the bar. Got the lobster tacos for our appetizer, which were delicious! Not so much for our drinks:( Waited one hour for our food and finally said something to the bartender. Manager came over to apologize and let us know they were working on it. I believe it was about 1 1/2 total time until we got out food which I got the Grouper and was a bit dry, my husband got the steak which was good. Manager ended up taking care of our entire bill which I wouldn't have expected any less. We will go back for appetizers one more time. Recommend you try and hopefully don't have same experience as us!!
