First, let me start by saying the food that my sister-in-law and I ordered during our visit to Eddie V's was outstanding...filet, tuna tartare, vegetables cooked to perfection. What really put it over the top for me was the outstanding service provided by Jason Morris and his team. I had arrived after a 15 hour drive in from St. Louis, via tour bus (work) and wasn't feeling well at all. Jason noticed that I was picking at my food and asked if something was wrong. I responded that I was feeling a bit queasy and light headed, thinking maybe I was suffering from a touch of motion sickness. In about 8-10 minutes, Jason reappeared, having gone 3 blocks to the drug store to pick up Dramamine for me. I mean really, who does that?? So the excellent food and staff service would be enough for me to highly recommend this restaurant, but through exceptional effort of Jason Morris to try and make my visit as pleasant as possible, I can't say enough about the experience. Thank you Jason!

Food and series’s amazing!
Lighting was just a bit low for my taste - walked outside at 830pm and it was still brighter outside
But I’d highly recommend it.

We had an awesome waiter, Jeff, who informed us he's been working at Eddie V's for almost 18 years. He was attentive but not overbearing. The food was FABULOUS! We tried the crab cake (full of lump meat and the only breadcrumbs were panko on the top), scallops and grilled shrimp. The red fish with crabmeat was enjoyed also. Definitely will go back if we're ever back in Austin. It was the best meal of our entire trip!

The place is amazing. I had been here 5 years ago and thought about how good the crab fried rice was. I came here for my birthday and it was amazing again. This is a must have in Austin.

I took business clients to eat at Eddie V's. I called ahead because one person is vegan and does not eat oil. I left a message to see if they could accommodate the dietary issues. Not only did I receive a call back, but they were more than willing to prepare a nice meal. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The food and wine were excellent and so was the service.

Truly one of Austin's finest! The 12 oz. filet was perfectly cooked and delicious; my wife had the sea bass at our waiter's recommendation and was equally scrumptious.
Likewise the drinks and service were superb.
I would give Eddie Vs my highest recommendation; we'll certainly be back.

We have always liked Eddie V's but it seemed a bit off on this visit. They were extremely busy and that may have been a part of the issue but given their prices it should be great every time.

I still give five stars as I love the place but the crab fried rice, my favorite dish there , the rice was undercooked this time. Got them to redo it and the same.

However I will
Return every time I go to Austin , their service is unsurpassed and outstanding every single
Time.

Get the banana fosters for dessert!
