    They were amazing with us. We made a reservation at the last minute for a group of 8 including two children and they sat us without a problem. We didn't realize how nice the restaurant was and we were definitely not dressed for the place but that didn't change how they treated us and they made sure we had everything we needed for the kids. The only reason I gave them a four instead of a five was their sides weren't anything special just average and I've had better bisque. But I LOVED their wild mushroom salad and the grapefruit on the scallops were an unexpected delight. The tuna which was huge came with a salad that really had lots of flavor that I wouldn't have thought would work together but oh boy they did.

    I have dined at various Eddie V's locations and it's consistently excellent. Fabulous seafood (the Chilean Sea Bass is incredible), but the steaks are great, too. Be prepared to pay, but you get your money's worth.

    When I called for a reservation I was told 5PM or 9 PM, open table secured my reservation at 5:15PM. Upon arrival the restaurant was fairly empty, our preference is to sit at one of the many tables in the bar area that aline the walls. I was told by the receptionist that it was open seating in the bar with exception to any table marked reserved, every table was marked reserve except the round tops. We finished up at 6:45 in the main dining room and headed to the door, as I went past the bar, I peered in and many of the tables that align the wall were still empty. Needless to say, It didn't set well with me, lesson learned.The food was very good and the service was fine, I will be back but make my choice of tables ahead of time.

    Seafood dishes were excellent (we had sea bass, grouper, and cod) - all prepared extremely well. The one steak at the table (filet mignon) rivaled ones that I have had at top steakhouses, and surpassed expectations. Service was outstanding!

    Our party of five was truly treated as a party! We had a great time. Seated in the bar area, we enjoyed the excellent live music, and had an excellent evening. The food, ranging from seafood entrees to steaks, was very well prepared and delicious. Order the crab cake. I'm not kidding. I've eaten my weight in crab cakes over the years, and this is the best one I've ever had. Our waiter Eric was outstanding...he was always there when we needed him, but didn't hover. Thanks, Eddie V's. We'll be back.

    For starters, the crab cake appetizer was excellent. My husband had the swordfish which he really enjoyed. I had the halibut which to me seemed a little over cooked for my taste and the sauce was ok. I really wanted the tuna but they were out of tuna. We did save room for dessert and I had the bananas foster which was phenomenal. The butterscotch Pana cotta my husband had was good but not as good as the bananas foster. We would definitely return but possibly only do appetizer and dessert as we were most pleased with that aspect of our dining. The wine list was extensive and ranged from $9/glass and up to very pricey. Our waiter was phenomenal and did an excellent job of recommended dishes and explaining the food.

And they take it all the way to dessert.....it's the best fine dinning establishment Tampa has to offer from beginning to end.

He recommended the right wine and appetizer to fit my taste buds. I will be visiting again for sure! Thanks again!

    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.
