We always go here for my husband’s Birthday. The steaks are phenomenal, the seafood is great but our favorite is the bananas Foster‘s cake. Fabulous dining experience.

Delicious food and good atmosphere but noisier than I’d prefer.

Our server Angelica was terrific! Food, great.
My only complaint was that it seemed that too many tables were shoehorned into the available space.

I loved this restaurant and have always had settler experiences but this time was totally different. My husband ordered TEXAS REDFISH, Sautéed with Jumbo Lump Crab, Meunière Style (copied from there menu). When he got it it was some kind of tomato type sauce which Meuniere is always a butter sauce. When we tried to tell the waiter another wait person came up (not sure why but then our waiter ignored us), we told her that this was not Meuniere sauce, she proceeded to argue with us, then brought over the manager and both of them argued with us and then the manager said he would comp it but treated us like we were trying to get a free meal. Very insulting and demeaning. I then asked for the rest of my steak and potatos to take home and apparently they threw it out so after waiting about 10 minute they told us the chef wanted to cook us a 4 oz steak and some potatoes to make up for it. We said that wasn't necessary but they insisted and then we waited another 20 min for that to come out. I would have given them a 1 but I do normally like this restaurant so giving them the benefit of the doubt they had a bad wait staff this night but that said no one should be treated like this for their not knowing what Meuniere sauce should be.

Absolutely outstanding - the Sea Bass and Rib Eye steak melt in your mouth. Our waiter Jeff suggested some great wine choices and for dessert get the bananas foster.

Steaks requested medium rare, came out blue rare. They took them back and brought to correct temperature. Mixed up the flow of the meal but in the end everything was delicious.

Great food. I had filet medallions. My wife had sea bass. Both cooked perfectly. Only issues were that it was very cold when we got there. Changed tables twice and the gave my wife a shawl...nice touch. Pretty pricey too. Overall food experience.

We went to Eddie V’s for our anniversary. Our table had rose petals and an anniversary card on it when we sat down. The service was excellent. We were not rushed at ant time but everyone was very attentive. The cocktails were just right, our appetizers were excellent...we especially enjoyed the steak tartare fixed at our table. They brought us a special dessert at the end...bananas foster bread pudding....it was so wonderfully decadent. Everything from beginning to end was thoughtfully executed. Simply perfect!

Eddie V's has become our new "high end" restaurant. The evening lounge specials are creative, well priced and delicious! The main menu has good steak choices for me and great seafood choices for my wife.

Eddie V's Arboretum is a wonderful place to bring special friends or clients to enjoy top quality steaks and seafood. The fish dishes are the freshest in Austin and delicious beyond compare. The service is impeccable, too. The servers know exactly how to watch a table for refills and extras and provide the perfect amount of attention.

I’ve been going to his Eddie V’s for years. Always great. Except..............this time.

Waiter was forgetful and often lost for long periods. Worse, I had requested a table that would allow for a conversation on my reservation. We were sat at a table too small for two plates and a cup. The only part that was too big was the distance from each other in the noisiest part of the restaurant.

Very disappointed.

As always, the food was amazing. The service? Spectacular. So why did I give up four stars instead of five?

I made the reservations in my name, as this is my OpenTable account. When the waiter came to our table, he kept addressing my husband and looking him in the eye. When he spoke with us, he referred to us as Mr. and Mrs. LastName. How did he know we were married? What if I were dating the man I was with and his last name was something else? What if I were married to Mr. LastName but I brought Mr. Smith with me? When he brought the bill he, again, addressed my husband, thanking him. I paid with my credit card. It still made no difference. It's as if I were "the little woman" and did not count. This little woman left Marcus a 25% tip anyway. But I would like for him to know that that tip did come from a woman, the woman whose name was on the reservation and the woman whose name was on that credit card. Yes, I found his behavior offensive. He did a very nice job, except for that one, little issue.

Best seafood in town and love that I can carry on a conversation. So many restaurants in town are sooo loud.
