    My husband took me to Eddie V's for my birthday (it's our tradition), and it was wonderful as always! The hostess was friendly when we arrived, and we enjoyed a few cocktails in the V Lounge before being seated. The bartender was quick & very attentive, we would definitely go back just to sit in the bar and have him serve us. Once seated, we were promptly greeted by our server for the evening, Jesus. He was professional and kind, telling us about the specials that evening and answering any questions we had about the menu in general. We would recommend requesting him if you want a server who is not only knowledgeable about the menu, but helpful in making key recommendations. For an appetizer we had the calamari (our favorite app), and the Hamachi Sashimi. The Hamachi was OUTSTANDING. The jalapeno peppers offered the perfect kick, and the ponzu sauce was a perfect accompaniment. The calamari was delicious as always, although a bit heavy on the nuts this time. For entrees I had a personal shellfish tower/plate (YUM!), and my husband had the filet. We had a twice baked potato and broccolini as sides, both were a nice balance to the rich steak and seafood we ordered as entrees. The star of the meal was the bananas foster. It was AMAZING!!! Every year we get this as a birthday treat, but this year it was exceptional. We finished the whole thing with no problam, despite being stuffed from a full meal. Eddie V's is an excellent choice for a delicious meal whether you are celebrating a special occasion or not. we will definitely be back, and hopefully we will not have to wait until my next birthday to do so! :) Cheers!

    This place is a little pricey and I just wish is wasn't so I could go much more often. I took 4 family members visiting from out of time this week and the food and service really impressed them. Was there for a birthday celebration and the birthday girl felt so celebrated. Our waiter, Rodney, was so attentive and nin- intrusive. Loved the. Loved the relaxed environment

    Went to Eddie V's on Wednesday with a friend of mine and had another great experience. The wine list is robust, the scenery is nice, the waitstaff is always on point and the place is very well managed. My friend and I sat in the lounge area where there was a nice small band playing. We ordered the crab cakes for appetizers and we both shared flounder and filet mignon. Everything was cooked to perfection. I love coming to Eddie V's and will continue to come here.

    We had some out of town people heading to Houston for business and I set up a dinner at eddie V's. I have never been disappointed at this place. Service is always top notch and the food is consistently great. This time did not disappoint, everyone in our group was impressed with the selections and the meal and the business discussion was a great success. Not just a business place, my wife and I go there when we want to celebrate something special or just get a romantic evening of to a great start. This place is not to be missed by anyone in Houston looking for a special place to dine.

    My brother is a CIA trained executive chefs, one of the best actually, so I'm always uncertain as to where to take him when he's in town. Eddie V's is my 'go to' restaurant when I want to impress, and they didn't disappoint. From the Red Dragon Mojito, to the salads, our great entrees, everything was lovingly prepared, presented beautifully, and excellent. They had an off the menu bay scallops entree that was superb. The halibut was great, and my wife ordered the 12 oz filet, and it was perfect. Desserts? The Godiva Melting Chocolate cake is the perfyend to a great meal. My brother loved it!

    Although we had not previously tried it, I chose to celebrate my wife's birthday at Eddie V's because she loves seafood. Thought the whole experience was very nice, from the presentation of the birthday card from staff to the very competent service. Unfortunately, the one disappointment was the fact that salmon my wife chose was underwhelming. Not fishy and good quality, but just really not any special flavor and light on taste. Was suppose to have a mustard vinegarette flavor, but that was not perceivable. So being that it was her birthday celebration, I was not happy with such. I will say that my filet of sole was wonderful though.

    We chose Eddie V's based on reviews on Open Table. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary and wanted something special. Eddie V's lived up to that at every turn. From the time we walked in and spoke with the Hostess, 3 people wished us "Happy Anniversary". When we got to our table, rose petals awaited and there was a card signed by the entire wait staff congratulating us. Rodney was our waiter, and he was the best. His service, suggestions and pairings based on our likes were absolutely spot on. Ask for Rodney, you will not be dissapointed. Dessert was on the house, and we chose the Banana's Foster Butter Cake. All we can say is WOW. Well done Eddie V's, this was our first visit and you made a special night even more special!

    We were a party of 4 and asked to sit in the back room (for lower noise level). This request was honored and we sat in the back room. The only problem with this room is the temperature is FREEZING!. Martinis prepared cold and delicious. My filet was cooked perfectly (med. rare) and my husbands salmon prepared perfectly as well. The other couple also enjoyed their meals. BLT salad is excellent as well. We ordered cappuccinos that were served the way they should be--nice and hot. Had a lovely evening visiting with our friends. Would def return.

    We had the brussel sprouts and lobster fried rice for our sides that were excellent. My friend had the crab cakes that she loved. Two of us had the small filet mignon ordered medium plus. Both had to be sent back because they were rare. The second time around my friend's steak still had a pool of blood around it. She did not want to send it back a 2nd time so just ate around the edges. Because of this, we were compensated for her steak. My steak was tender and perfectly seasoned. For dessert we had the banana foster that was also excellent. Overall a wonderful experience. Will definitely return.
