    Food was amazing, and the service even better. Our waiter was the best! There was more tables than I would've expected at a restaurant like this, but after experiencing it, it's understandable why so many people want to dine there. We will be going back soon!

    Off night for Eddie Vs. Ran out of an entre item and didn't tell us upon ordering. Would expect some type of comp, but was not offered. Brought wrong side item and took too long to bring the right one. They did comp the side. Food was decent, not spectacular. Service was generally slow.

    I got the salmon. My date had steak (don't remember which one) and it was very good. Mine wasn't great. Appetizer was the Calamari and it was terrible. Waiter was very good and very knowledgeable about the wine selection but kind of lost us when making recommendations on the food.

    We had all the must haves. Lobster tacos, lobster bisque, wild mushroom salad and crab rice. They were all great. The mains were very hard to choose. I settled on fresh stone crabs (first of the season) and the others got the Cod shanghai and a filet. Everything was tasty right down to the bananas foster and the molten chocolate cake.

    Ambience is good though Bern's is still much better. The price of the food is too expensive for the serving size. Ribeye cost me $46 without sides while that amount will include a lot more at Bern's and the quality of steaks at Bern's are really excellent! We made a reservation at 8pm and arrived there at 7:55pm but got seated at 8:15pm. 20 mins wait is not worth at all unless it's Bern's. The server made a mistake on the bill, charged an item that we didn't order so I had to correct it. I'd go back to Bern's and pay the same amount and go home over satisfied and happy.

    High end restaurant that caters to the rich and famous as well as it caters to the everyday man and woman. My girl and I enjoyed our experience Eddie V's. The crab cakes were so pleased the best crab cakes with ever had and we've had many. I waitress was fun and friendly and knew the menu in and out the overall experience was outstanding. A funny note when we pulled up to Eddie V's it look like a Maserati or Ferrari dealership to her so many unbelievable cars it first we were a bit intimidated but once we made it into the front doors new we chose the right place for a great night

    My wife and I ate dinner here with our adult son on Saturday October 4th. We found the service to be very good and the atmosphere was good. We all three had the lobster tacos to start with and they were very good. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was the best piece of fish I have ever eaten. My wife had the swordfish and it was adequate, nothing to write home about. My son had the scallops and he said they were just okay. We finish off dinner with bananas fosters, lime coconut Alaska and the chocolate cake. All three desserts were very good. The problem started right after dessert, when my son had to make a mad dash to the restroom and then again 20 minutes after leaving. I called Eddie V's and the manager gave me a polite brush off.

    This was my first time in Tampa and Eddie V's was a nice welcome. Food and service were excellent. We went with a large group of 10 for a work dinner and the spot was great...only thing I wish was different was I wish we were at a round table as opposed to a rectangular one, although not a big deal. Everyone was extremely nice from our server to the hostess who had to deal with me calling 3 times to tell her we were running late. She was very patient! I would definitely come back here next business trip to Tampa!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
