Very cool atmosphere, terrific food and fabulous service/ server.
We were from out of town, but will still rave about the experience.
Also worth checking out the live, local music next door!

Four of us dined for two hours enjoying the BLT salad, crab cakes, Red Fish with fresh crab meat and the molten lava chocolate soufflé.

The crab cake was packed with large lumps of fresh crab, accompanied by a delicious sauce. The BLT wedge salad was crispy and perfectly prepared.

The Red Fish was divine and a longtime favorite. Our server was outstanding and arrived at all the right moments. Her recommendation of Meomi wine was excellent. We will be back again very soon!

One of the best dry aged ribeyes I’ve ever had, and I sample them throughout the country. High-energy, convivial scene in bar area, which is where we like to eat, either at the high-tops or a booth. Nice, diverse wine list that you can have fun with if you choose. Engaged service.

Superb food, excellent service. The lemon sole is fantastic & the rib eye was terrific. This restaurant does not disappoint. Although it is known for its seafood, the meat selections on the menu are excellent. I would recommend this restaurant for a variety of occasions.

Service was great, steaks not so much. Asked for steak au poivre, was served a steak without peppercorns. Other filet ordered we requested crab and béarnaise topping.
Steaks were delivered to table and then waitress realized steaks didn't have crab and béarnaise and cognac sauce was missing. Waitress left with food on tray and new waiter returned several minutes later.
Cognac sauce and béarnaise sauce were not good, cognac sauce had no flavor and béarnaise had too much lemon.
Brussel sprout side was room temperature at best, twice baked potato was warm and delicious.

Enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner. But, no butter knife so had to use a large knife to butter the delicious bread. Also when eating the apple cobbler we needed a fork to help the food onto the spoon. Decor was sparse

We went on a Monday night and asked to sit in the Lounge. We made reservations far in advance. They have live jazz on Monday nights and a happy hour menu that is good all night on Monday's. The food is always excellent but the Happy Hour menu does not include many non-seafood options. This was a little bit of a problem for our friend who does not eat fish or seafood. I was hoping for a few more beef options. The crab cake is fabulous and of course, so is the Chilean Sea Bass and you can never go wrong with their steaks. Just know that the happy hour menu is mostly Oysters and a few other seafood options.

Food was marginal at best. Way overpriced for the quality. It's like the cooks are just going through the motions- no passion, no "touch. The arugala salad was mushy and so horrible could not eat. Redfish with crab had Zero flavor. Sad.

I made my reservation about three weeks ago to sit in the big room and again they tried to stick me next to the cabinet in the private room Servers come in that room and get plates and other stuff throughout the whole meal out of that cabinet

Move that friggin cabinet to the back of the restaurant and leave the patrons in peace

Thankfully we asked to move to the big room and did not have to put up with it for the 2nd year in a row

Wife’s xx birthday and her choice. We’ve tried many restaurants in Austin and we keep coming back to Eddie V’smiles away and know we can count on V’s. If we’re returning home early, their happy hour menu in the bar can make a great meal, too. We’ve even gotten to the point of asking for Aaron, an exceptionally professional yet congenial waiter.

The raw oysters were very good--a huge compliment coming from a Louisiana girl. Crab cake was sent back twice because it wasn't hot. Chili shrimp were remarkable and we ordered sides that were healthy.
Service started out good but there was a little too much hovering and attempted jokes.
Restaurant is huge and expensive

We were in Austin for a conference and had dinner at three of the 4-$ restaurants in town. This was our favorite. The food and drinks were great and our waiter, Jeffrey, was wonderful. He made great recommendations and kept apologizing for the length of time it took for our dinner to come out. We were having such a good time enjoying the evening that we weren't even bothered by it buy he gave us a delicious dessert on the house. I would definitely recommend!
