    Eddie V's hits the mark not only challenging Tampa's top steak houses but an extensive and excellent seafood menu. Service is excellent as you would expect. If you have a chance take a booth with a window view of the immaculate kitchen. It is now our #1 choice for fine dining in Tampa. No wonder the aging Palm (once a favorite) got out of town! Eddie V's is doing some little things with a little more polish than the competition. You sense there is a "try harder" that I hope continues.

    My husband and I dined at Eddie V's for his birthday. We got the crab cake appetizer to share, it was the best we've ever had. It was huge and had to be 99% crab meat. For dinner my husband had the grouper it was cooked perfectly although he would have liked the sauce to be a little thicker. The taste was amazing! I had the ahi tuna it was fabulous cooked perfectly and the salad that accompanies it was quite tasty and a nice complement to the tuna.

    This is how a restaurant should be run. They take a different approach than most restaurants take, they actually want you to be there and treat you like they appreciate your business! As stated in other reviews, it starts with the valet, through the waitstaff and even having your car waiting for you when you leave. Great job all around, obviously great management!

    I have been going to Berns in tampa for special occasion meals for almost 20 years. We went to Eddie V's last Saturday on a recommendation from a Co worker. The service was over the top Excellent. Our server ray was on top of everything including taking out valet ticket when he brought the check to get the car pulled up. Food was fresh with good portions. Enjoyed the wine recommendation as well. I had swordfish and wife had scallops. We will be going again. Hopefully soon

    We went for a birthday celebration. Nice ambiance and great service. My filet with shrimp was perfectly cooked. A little pricey at $48 with no sides. My husband's halibut was salty and overcooked- a real disappointment since it was his birthday. The dessert was totally unedible,since it was solidly frozen. The waitress took dessert off the bill, but don't know if we'll return.

    If you want to impress someone with a great meal, Eddie V's would be a good choice. If you are trying to take a client out to dinner and want some place a bit quieter to have a serious conversation, this may not be the place. It was a loud room with a lot of people. Had a great meal with my wife and enjoyed the conversation, but we both thought it was pretty noisy.

    We dined for the first time here. They made an effort to place us in a quieter area which was wonderful for our special occasion because the main area was quite noisy. We enjoyed our appetizer and salad. My fish was very good. My husband really enjoyed his filet. David, our server, made the experience memorable by arranging for a special anniversary wish on our dessert which was on the house. The best thing about Eddie V's was the wonderful service! I would definitely come back.

    This is a little too pricey for our typical Saturday night, but it was a special birthday dinner and we all enjoyed the night. The food was not a good as before, since the rice and vegetables were too al dente for our tastes. But, the salad, fish, seafood were delicious. And, the bananas foster dessert is not to be missed. The service was excellent and compensated for the problems with the side dishes. The provided free dessert for the birthday girl which was a nice surprise.

    I travel extensively and eat out daily, while I only visit Tampa, I've found Eddie V's by far the best dining place in Tampa, the service was excellent and the food was great. The noise level was high on the night I was there because of some obnoxiously drunk, loud 'classy' customers seeking attention, otherwise, it was a pleasant experience.

    This was our first experience with Eddie V's and it was excellent. The food was good but most importantly, the service. Our server was Stephen and we never had a better waiter. He was extremely polite, genuinely helpful and overall a pleasure to be around. He's an asset to a restaurant as Eddie V's and we hope the managers acknowledge this about him and reward him accordingly.

    There are a number of premium restaurants to choose from in the area but my wife and I decided to try Eddie Vs for our Anniversary dinner. As we'd expected, the restaurant is new and well appointed. The atmosphere is definitely upscale and comfortable. What we hadn't expected was how personable, attentive and friendly the staff was. The food was great, we'd received expert advice from our waiter David. The next day, we received a follow up call inquiring as to our experience. Top notch food made better by a staff who understands the value (and nearly lost art) of personal service.

    e had to postpone our Anniversary from Saturday night to Sunday and they adjusted without any issues. Although our original table was next to the noisy kitchen, when we asked to be moved to a quiet booth they did so quickly. Food was great, service with Carrie outstanding and we enjoyed the dinning experience. We'll be back, and won't wait for our next Anniversary to do so.

    I chose this restaurant for my friends birthday celebration based on it's reviews. We were promptly greeted and taken to our table which gave us a great view of the restaurant and felt private at the same time. There was live music which provided great ambiance. There was a birthday card on the table signed by the entire staff...that was a nice and unexpected touch! Our server, Erica, was very knowlegeable about the menu items and provided us with the specials. We started with wine, cocktails, and crab cake appetizers. We finished with the halibut, red fish, spinach, crab fried rice, and for dessert the bananas foster buttercake with butter pecan ice cream. Eddie V's provided us with a great dining experience and we plan to return!

    It is obvious when you walk in the door that Eddie V's is a hot spot. The food definitely holds up & is always outstanding. Our only complaint is the noise level, but that complaint should be disregarded because when you are a "hot spot," the noise level is obviously going to be high. It is a great place for groups & the menu is varied, there's something for everyone.

    This place is unassuming from the outside but once inside it is dark and romantic. Server obviously knew quite a bit about the menu but I wished she had known more about wine. We got the crabcake appetizer which was one of the best I've had – mostly just Crab lightly fried. My mom had the Seabass done Asian style and I had the scallops. The sides are to share.

    We were celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary. They had rose petals on the table top, a "reserved--happy anniversary" placard on the table, which was replaced with a card, signed by all the staff when we sat down. The servers were very attentive and friendly besides, always a nice touch. Scottish salmon was delicious, as well as the au gratin potatoes and spinach. They gave us dessert of our choice on the house for our celebration. The music was nice.
