I took my better half to Eddie V's for our 1 year anniversary. The staff are meticulous with details. They wished us a happy anniversary on arrival and even had a "Happy Anniversary" placard on our table. They did all of this from just the reservation. The manager then brought us a quick bite (lamb) from the chef. They were very attentive to our needs and were well versed in the menu. We had the lump crab cake for an appetizer (delicious). It was big enough for the both of us. The lobster bisque was delicious as well. I had the jumbo shrimp and wife had the Norwegian Sole..both were absolutely cooked to perfection. Our waiter was sure to tell us the side orders were large and could feed the both of us and that half orders were available at a lower price. We closed with the banana butter cake..OMG..there entire experience was amazing and I would highly recommend Eddie V's for your next special occasion

My wife and I celebrated a milestone anniversary at Eddie V’s and we could not have been more pleased. Our server Simon was quite attentive and provided excellent service. The manager stopped by our table to ensure that all was well. Everyone went to great length to ensure that our evening was memorable, and it was!

My new favorite restaurant/steakhouse in Austin. The service, food and atmosphere were all 5 stars. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and the lobster stuffed with crab cake was perfection as well. The bread and butter was memorable even. Cesar salad was great. Apple cobbler was delicious! Definitely going back.

Dined on New Year's Eve and even though it was relatively early, the restaurant was packed and was quite noisy as nearby tables were already in the holiday spirit. Promptly greeted by receptionist who told us our table was being cleaned and we would be seated shortly. Were seated after 5-minute wait and wait staff were there when we arrived. Very informative and friendly staff who always brought refills and checked on us throughout the meal without need for us to request them. Wife and I shared a crab and corn chowder and then we both ordered the Texas redfish along with a side of grilled asparagus. Very delicious and well-presented. Ample amount of food prepared well and served hot. An enjoyable evening in spite of the noise factor.

We've been numerous times to Eddie V's. We like it very much for special occasions. This time the review is Very Good vs. Outstanding for a few reasons. First, our waiter brought a different cocktail than ordered. He quickly offered to fix it but I kept it because it was delicious. Second, our other waiter brought me my hot tea order w/o any hot water. Again, it was quickly fixed. All in all these were minor issues and the food was outstanding as always. We were near a large table and they were a bit noisy but usually the ambiance is lovely.

We celebrated our 34th anniversary and had a stellar experience. We were greeted by our waiter and taken to a table with rose petals sprinkled on it holding a hand written welcome card from our waiter and the manager. The manager came over after our drink order and welcomed us with a complementary special oyster dish. What followed was friendly attentive service with great food from salad to the dessert that was also on the house. This is a nice restaurant with fair prices for the quality of food and service. Truly a night we will remember.

My favorite restaurant is clearly Eddy V the food and staff are incredible especially Mark behind the bar, hence my disappointment tonight.
I went to the restaurant for Christmas Eve at 4 pm and I can only assume they were fully booked as we were clearly rushed.
For the record we sat at the same table last Christmas Eve and the same table this past Thanksgiving, just to give you an idea of how many times we go there.
I had my nephew and father-in-law over from the UK for Christmas and I took them to my favorite restaurant.
We all ordered and I ordered the Tomahawk for my nephew and I and when you pay that fee for a steak it should be carved at the table yet the cut the steak in half in the kitchen.
Also plates were cleared when we were not all finished.

Sadly rushed , not the normal standard.
To be fair it’s normally incredible

Just a busy bad and expensive day

My partner and I went for our ten year anniversary. The Manager had sent our table two complimentary appetizers of our choice. The waiter was very sincere and genuine in conversation at the same time gave us superb service. The food was excellent and the price was reasonable. Our experience and meal was outstanding. I was very impressed. I have eaten at Truluck’s, Ruth Chris, Vince Young’s,Perry’s and other fine dining steakhouse restaurants. Eddie V’s at the Arboretum was superior. We will definitely be back for our next special occasion. Our waiter was “Justin “. I would ask for him again.

Jeff is a fantastic waiter. He made our evening very enjoyable. Fully knowledgeable about the menu and specials. The salad was overly salty and he brought it to the attention of Stewart who was very apologetic and wanted very much to make it right. Overall our evening was wonderful and the food was totally exceptional!!! Eddie V’s now is our favorite dining place. Thanks to all the staff and our waiter, Jeff for making us feel so welcomed and treated us like we were the only table that needed waiting on.

We were uncomfortable because our table was next to the door, and it was a cold evening. There wasn’t an alternative since it was a Saturday night; they need a solid separation between that small dining area and the door in the winter. The staff were very apologetic about it, and they loaned my adult daughter and me pashminas.

My husband started with a Red Dragon cocktail and crab cake. The cocktail was weak and not that flavorful, but the crab cake was very good, if not exceptional. The filet mignon with a peppercorn sauce delivered a lovely piece of beef that was perfectly prepared. The butterfish, really black Alaskan cod, in miso broth was probably the best dish as the fish couldn’t have been more luscious and the sauce was so good I requested a spoon to consume it all. While the mushrooms enhanced the overall tone of the dish, I don’t think the bean sprouts provided anything useful. The tuna was cooked well, which means very rare, but I don’t think it was a very good cut as it wasn’t tender as we would have expected. The flavor components weren’t very strong for it, either. Our final entree (actually meant to accompany a steak) were stuffed shrimp, very well prepared and tasty.

We accompanied our entrees with a couple of sides. Be aware that the side dishes are large, intended as table sides, not individual ones. The sugar snap oeas were perfect. The mashed potatoes provided a huge amount of potatoes, tasty but slightly dry, with a small amount of lobster bisque on top. We wouldn’t have the potatoes again.

Our desserts were the bananas foster on cake (complimentary for my husband’s birthday) and their take on a s’more. As expected, the bananas were flamed at the table. The underlying cake was tasty, but soggy, and the accompanying ice cream was great. The whipped cream on the side seemed unnecessary. The s’more was cold and not that great.

We go here from out of town...AND will return. Personal attention by Matt as waiter, he made a family get together special. He remembered our orders (7) without writing it down and everything was perfect, especially with a group of carnivores. Matthew and Mark the bartenders remembered us and our drinks from the time before. All were willing to go above and beyond in their service. Thank you for an early Christmas celebration with family and good friends.
