I loved to be surprised!! I was delighted with the dinner I had a t Eddie V's. The experience was great. Food was amazing, service great, attention to detail spot on. I was so pleasantly surprised. For an "old Austin standard", it is lot the least bit tired, outdated or worn!!!! I can't wait to go back!!!

We celebrated our anniversary dinner there, and the entire staff made us feel special. Rose petals were on the table as well as a nice card signed by all the staff! The food was all amazing, and our waiter Jason was attentive and knowledgeable - it all was great! We were seated quickly per our reservation and we were not rushed, and actually encouraged to linger and enjoy the experience. The only downsides were the ambient noise level (a bit loud), and for whatever reason - extra dining chairs were stacked awkwardly in the hallways surrounding the bathrooms, making access difficult. It was an oversight that we can excuse, but it looked messy and haphazard - unbecoming of such a restaurant with a high reputation. We will still make Eddie V’s a top choice for special occasion destination, as well as highly recommend to our friends and family. Fantastic food and service!

This was our first visit to the original Eddie V's. We really enjoyed the experience. Our server Luigi was fantastic! So helpful, friendly, and very attentive. Our meal was delicious and cooked perfectly. I suggest trying the bacon wrapped filet with lump crab.

Overall a nice birthday experience.
Excellent: birthday fuss (decorated table, free desert, fuss from waiter)
Excellent: service, bread, wine selection, crab cake (very rich)
Good: Tuna tartare, trio of deserts
Fair: Branzino (over cooked so dry, accompaniments not very flavorful), gnocchi entre (flavors muddled, gnocchis a bit tough)

A busy Friday night, but we were seated efficiently. Drinks were a bit slow in arriving due to a well attended bar scene. Food was fabulous and our server was most attentive. Can’t wait to return!

We love Eddie Vs and decided to celebrate our 55th Anniversary here. We were greeted by a table decked in rose petals- nice touch - followed up with a delicious dinner, followed by a wonderful dessert of Bananas Foster and Champaign on the the house. Our waiter Jason was fantastic which made for a delightful and memorable evening. We will be back!

We haven’t been to this restaurant in years and I don’t know why. The food and service were perfect. We decided to get a room downtown to celebrate my husband’s birthday and catch a show at Antone’s which is basically next door. So since we were super casual we asked to sit in the lounge. There are a lot of great restaurants to choose from but Eddie V’s is guaranteed to deliver a great dining experience. We will be back! Oh and much to my husband’s displeasure I had put in the reservation it was his birthday celebration so they decorated our table and brought out a delicious dessert too. Very thoughtful.

We took our college aged kids out for a special family dinner on NYD. Eli was our server, and he was awesome. He helped all of us pick out wines with accurate descriptions and even let my wife do a blind taste test of two of her choices. He guided us through the selections and paced the meal just right through multiple courses. We had an excellent evening. The crab cakes are the gold standard of all the crab cakes we have tried anywhere.

Our experience at this Eddie V's was so much better than our experience at the one on Arboretum the week before. Our server, Krystal, made the difference, as did the wonderful cocktails. The bartender is on her game!

Thank you for a memorable dining experience and making our holidays away from home wonderful.

Great place to go for birthdays/holidays/special events.
I was there on Christmas eve, and the place was packed.
I did not hear any live jazz, probably because it was Christmas Eve.
Servers were very attentive and professional.
Food was outstanding, prices were very high.
