    Eddie V's is a great spot for a business dinner or celebrating with someone special. They perfectly cooked my bone-in filet to Pittsburg rare and I couldn't have asked for anything more.

    As always service was great, it was a birthday dinner for a dear friend and everyone from the hostess to the service team wished him a happy birthday. There was a signed card on the table when we arrived and he was offered a complimentary dessert. Amazing night!

    Everything was amazing, as usual. Roberto, our waiter was great. The restaurant knew we were bringing out of town guests for their first time, and they made their visit very special, by bringing a complimentary desert with "welcome to Eddie V's" on it.

    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.

    Eddie V's always has outstanding food and exceptional service. The sole, salmon, and redfish were all delicious. The twice baked potato was also delectable and the bananas foster and chocolate cake are the best. The server we had was extremely attentive, so nice and helpful, knew the menu perfectly, and is always outstanding. Thank you Eddie V's for being one of our favorite restaurants and everyone we bring with us feels the same.

    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.

    We recently went to Eddie V's for a special birthday dinner. The entire evening was made special by the staff which greeted us with happy birthday and a card. The food was excellent. The lemon sole was our favorite! The server was awesome, she made wonderful recommendations and treated us like royalty. Eddie V's is definitely one of the best restaurants in Houston!

    Enjoyed the meal and the restaurant ambience and service team was great. However, we had two steaks and shared 2 sides (sides are ala carte) with a glass of wine each and the bill was over $200. For the same ambience and service we could have gone to Fogo de Chao and had more food for less. I suggest going for special occasions or maybe restaurant week.

    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!

  • 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!
