    We really love Eddie V's on special occassions. It's sophisticated and very friendly, with great seafood choices. We've been lucky enought to dine at both the Austin TX and Chicago locations, and althought they have different vibes they are equally welcoming. Service is also impecable. We'll be back!

    Eddie V's was phenomenal. My boyfriend and I went for a nice dinner to celebrate our anniversary and were quite impressed. Our waiter was very enthusiastic and knew the menu well. We ended up choosing the sea bass and tuna steak which were both incredible. On the side we got corn and brussel sprouts. Good sized portions that we were full without an appetizer. All the good at tables around us also looked great. Would highly recommend.

    We started our meal with a highly recommended crab cake and calamari. The crab cake was one of the best I've ever had and the calamari was crisp and tender. We ordered two seafood meals and a steak meal -- everything was excellent.

    I found Eddie V's to be the best find I have had in years. I have been there three times and all have been outstanding. The latest experience was an entertainment evening for clients and they loved it. They told me that it was the best steak they had ever had, and it is a seafood gem too. Service was excellent and food has unusual preparations that are never average. I recommend it to everyone. Try it, you'll like it!

    The food was wonderful. We were a group of 5 and had the crab cakes and calamari for appetizers, and both were flavorful. The portion sizes were generous. I had the special of the night: sea scallops prepared simplistically with sea salt and lemon over sprigs of asparagus. I enjoyed this dish as the fresh scallops melted in my mouth. The others in the group were pleased with their entrees as well. The waiter was excellent as he handled a table of 5 talkative, energetic women. He was patient, informative, attentive and a pleasure. I wish I would have recalled his name. The other staff were very friendly and accommodating to us all. I will return!

    There was a real good piano player by the bar. We enjoyed listening to him while we waited for our table. They put rose petals on our table before we sat down to celebrate our anniversary. The food was very good. We heard some good reviews for Eddie V's, and we weren't disappointed. We had great food, wine, and dessert.

    Went there with my wife for our anniversary. Our waiter Benjamin was very polite, courteous, and you could see how proud he was of his restaurant. The lobster tail my wife ordered and the peppercorn NY strip steak were delicious. It was a wonderful dining experience, especially with the Jazz music from the bar in the background. I will go again with friends and family....

    We went on a Saturday night and it was packed. Service was ok when there were drinks involved, but a few tables complained next to us that the service was slow. Food delivery not waiting staff. Also, they forgot one of my side dishes and brought it out about 15 min. later (still charged for it). I got the scallops and hubby got the swordfish, both were very good. Food was really rich - didn't sit well with me later.

    Foods and services are outstanding. Life music is enjoyable. Attended to retails very much. Just then is noisy and a bit long waiting (about 40 minutes) for foods are reducing such great foods, services and ambiance. Arrangement of rose petals and greetings was much appreciated. Overall, it is still a very enjoyable dinning.

    For a chain, you go in prepared that it is probably going to fall short, but Eddie V's goes the distance and doesn't disappoint. They go the extra mile to make you feel special and every aspect of the meal was top notch. You will pay to play, but we had a perfectly executed martini, a wonderful bottle of wine, a phenomenal meal, and a truly incredible dessert. I highly recommend trying this gem!

    Went to Eddie V's with a group of nine people on a Friday night. Sometimes larger group dinners disappoint...but not here! The service was outstanding..each course arrived to each person correctly and timed perfectly...the entrees were a nice portion, very fresh and hot, and the quality of the seafood was top notch. We also enjoyed the lounge for a cocktail before dinner - the live music was a bonus. Atmosphere is elegant and chic. Can't say enough about the staff and their service-- beginning with the hostess, to the bartender, to our server, Geoffrey. An excellent experience!

    We had our anniversary dinner there. They have some of the best and freshest seafood in town. They are going to give most of the high end restaurants in town a run for their money. Service by Trent, our server was outstanding. Wife and I agreed this would be our new favorite restaurant in Chicago. Go now while you can. It's popularity is sure to increase quickly.

  • Incredible Service and Food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    While the food was exquisite, the service was unbeatable. Everyone including the hostess, our server David, and the busser were extremely friendly and fun. David in particular was extremely attentive and helpful, not checking too often and giving us time to enjoy our dinner, but seeming to anticipate all our needs. He displayed a mastery of the menu and was very informative. The halibut was served in a spectacular cream sauce with smoked pork shanks, and my wife's Chilean sea bass was delicate, but flavorful. The bananas foster butter cake was very decadent. The opening round of oysters on the half shell was also extremely fresh and delicious. The best decision I could have made for our anniversary dinner.

    I have to say that the extra wait was not at all a problem. Before our date we were sitting at the bar with a band playing smooth jazz. It was amazing just getting to listen to them. The food? Im speach less. It's was so amazing. So freah. Never had swordfish before and yes I would recommend it. Very romantic and by far the best sea food I've ever had.

    We selected this for our 15th Anniversary restaurant based on existing ratings. It did not disappoint! The food and the service was spectacular -- these are real trained waiters, not just schmoes thrown into the job. We could not have had a better experience. Our waiter Geoffrey knew our names, that is was our anniversary, and even had rose petals on our table. So special. He was a great waiter. The ambiance is very intimate -- whether a romantic couple or a group of good friends. We had the crab crake (awesome). Raw oysters which eclipsed the ones we had over at Shaw's oyster bar for lunch. The South African lobster tails, they were so divine. The bananas foster dessert cake -- words don't do it justice. Just order it, trust me. Enjoy!!

    I made a reservation under opentable for 2 with no problems. It was my first time trying this restaurant and I am not a food critic but I love eating. The food was amazing, we ordered the ahi tuna tartare appetizer, I had the sole and my date had the swordfish steak. Timely and warm and we finished every bite. The server Taylor was welcoming and even knew my name due to the reservation, very knowledgeable about menu, wines, and pairings and he gave a great recommendation. The live music was great but I wish we could hear it a little better since we were separated by a wall. I also wished we could have been seated at a two person booth instead of a four person table to be a little more romantic, be sure to specify in the notes!

    So here is the good: The staff acknowledged that it was my husband's bday. Waiter was polite and efficient. They gave my husband a free dessert for his bday. We appreciated that. Good band but too loud to sit close, so we were seated in the main dining room. Place is new, so the decor is chic and aesthetically pleasing. Nice for a romantic night out. Now for the so-so: The food, mehhh. Red fish was bland. Jumbo stuffed shrimp pretty good. Crab fried rice was just ok. Lobster bisque had a few pieces of lobster in it (love that), but the taste was just lacking. Not sure. Maybe we just got the wrong things on the wrong night. While this review was not a great promo, I would still say try it out for yourself.

    Dined on 8/16/14 around 9pm. Bryan S. was our server, he was professional, knowledgeable, personable and did not rush anything. Special thanks for making our experience *that* much better. We had the Caymus Cab, 1/2 dozen oysters, Yellowtail Sashimi, Jumbo Lump Crab Cake. All were fresh, flavorful, delicious, and beautiful. We split the 1lb Lobster (to die for!!) with sides of Broccolini and Truffled Mac and Cheese. Did not order dessert, but were pleasantly surprised to be presented with the Bananas Foster. Do yourself a favor: get it. Delish. As industry professionals (I am a pastry chef/ he is a chef/restaurant owner) we appreciate a truly exceptional experience. We are looking forward to coming back on our next trip to Chicago!
