    I have been to this restaraunt many times and have always liked it. This time however, it was different. I asked to see a cocktail menu and there wasn't one. The "liquor expert" was walking by our table and I enguired about their bourbons and asked if they had Angel's Envy. He didn't know what it was. I then ordered a glass of Crown XO. When the billed arrive, there was a $35/glass charge on it and was "shocked". A bottle only costs $45!! This was ridiculous and I should have been informed of the excessive cost when I ordered it. I did not say anything since I was on a date and did not want to have an "issue" in front of her. On a positive note, our waiter was very impressive and would recommend him to anyone. Kudos to him!

    "I love the ambiance of the dining room – low lights and romantic. The lobster tacos and seared scallops were wonderful. Ordered several sides but that crab fried rice was dee-licious and very generous portions. We finished dinner with the hot chocolate cake and ice cream. The best we've ever had. "Happy Anniversary" had been written in chocolate on the side of the dish (a nice surprise). We definitely will return for other special occasions. Our server and service were exceptional.

    Eddie V's- West Ave was great! My date and I ended up sharing the 20 oz bone in rib eye along with a lobster tail. The steak and lobster were both awesome! The service there is always on point and we were lucky to have the same server who served us last time. I love coming to this place, it is always such a treat!

    This is an outstanding restaurant. From the time you enter the restaurant you will encounter a helpful and wonderful staff. The food is always delicious. Every dish is consistently wonderful. The seafood including specials, dover sole, and salmon were delicious as are the sides especially the twice baked potato. The bananas foster and chocolate are wonderful. As well, the service is perfect.

  • Eddie V's on Our anniversary
    disappointed
    Dined on 9/4/2014
    My wife and I chose to celebrate our 32nd anniversary at Eddie V's. Atmosphere was nice, but the dining area was noisy. Service was very good and the server very attentive. They had a great wine selection and the server willingly provided a few small samples of two wines we were considering. We ordered appetizers, crab cake and calamari, both were good, the calamari portion is very large for one person and can easily be shared. For the main course, we had scallops and striped bass topped with lobster meat one of the evening specials. Although the fish was cooked well, both were bland and lacking any flavor. Disappointed in the fish entree, the manager did offer to replace it, but we declined.

    Each time I return to this city, I return to this restaurant. I also ask for Ashley; she's a great waitress-knowledgeable, friendly, and genuinely happy to be doing her job! The lobster tacos and crab cake are my favorite appetizers, but honestly, they're the only ones I've tried. I'm tempted to venture onto other starters but I'm so afraid they won't compare to the perfect two we selected on our first visit and haven't strayed away from since. The filet is wonderful, and the sole was perfectly prepared. I love the brussel sprouts; they're a lot like the ones I prepare. Eddie V's is perfect for whatever the occasion- both the main dining room and the lounge are nice and appealing in their own way.

    My husband and I sat in the back room (which was much quieter than the main room) and ended up ordering the restaurant month menu. We both had the wedge salad which could have been a bit denser. How expense is iceberg lettuce ? It was tasty though and beautifully presented. I had the 8 oz filet and it was cooked perfect -med rare and as good a steak as any steakhouse. My husband had the Scottish salmon. It too was beautifully presented and delicious. Martinis served cold and well shaken. Bananas foster cake delicious! Will definitely return. Waiter joe did a good job too.

    We celebrated our anniversary with a movie followed by dinner at Eddie V's. The meal could not have been more perfect! Everything we ordered was first rate and beautifully served and presented. We were very pleased with our seating too; in a smaller room just beyond the main Dining room right in front of the window. It was romantic and we could talk easily. Thanks to the waiters who came and put flower petals on the tabletop too - when they learned it was our 39th anniversary.

    My boyfriend and I came to Eddie V's for Houston Restaurant Weeks. We have never participated in Houston Restaurant Weeks nor have we ever been to Eddie V's. We were blow away by the attentiveness of the wait staff. The server made sure to point out which dishes were the most popular and the fact that the side dishes and desserts were big enough for two. This allowed us to order two different side dishes and two different desserts. We both had the 8 oz filet mignon. It was amazing. I had the hot chocolate Godiva cake and he had the hot bananas foster cake. Both desserts were amazing. They brought me the wrong side dish but before I could tell the waiter a manager brought me the correct side dish and apologized. We will definitely be back!

    This was our third time dining at Eddie V's, and our expectations were high as we have had wonderful past experiences here. The food was not as amazing as I remembered. We ordered an assortment of oysters in the half shell from the east coast. They were not as sweet as usual and I had to remove tiny pieces of shell that were left behind in the meat of the oyster. We also had the beef tartar appetizer, which was ground rather fine (I prefer my tartar in very small chunks) and not seasoned very well. The worst part of the experience was the location in which we were seated, in a room in the back, away from the main dining area with large windows that were open. I was anticipating a dark, romantic atmosphere with music and candles.

We were never left wanting or needing anything. The cherry on top of the Sundae was the excellent attention given to the birthday boy. Not only did he receive a card from the entire Eddie V's staff, but the entire table was given a very large, flaming bananas foster cake to share. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

    After excellent reviews I booked our 31st wedding anniversary at Eddie V's and made notes from the reviews. Indeed the table was strewn with rose petals albeit not in a heart shape as stated in all the reviews.However the table was set for 6 people which was VERY awkward considering it was an anniversary celebration with reservations for 2 people. I requested Roberto as the reviews said he was outstanding. I even received a confirmation phone call hours before our reservation stating our requests including Roberto but we got Roger who was very friendly but NOT attentive at all! The worst was the cognac peppercorn tenderloin, it was disgusting. Thankfully the sauce was on the side! Lobster tacos-outstanding as well as banana's foster cake.
