We appreciated the rose petals on our table as this was an anniversary dinner. We were also surprised it was as crowded as it was on a Wed. night, perhaps because of the quality and service. It was a special night for us!

Food was excellent. We ordered an off menu item and it was prepared exactly as we asked. Salad was excellent and main course was very well prepared. Service was attentive without being in any way oppressive. Courses were well timed and silverware changed with each course as you expect in a fine dining restaurant. Perfect restaurant for a romantic meal or a special meal with friends. Music was at the right volume, there, in the background without being intrusive. Wine list was complete with many reasonable selections as well as some more expensive bottles according to your taste. All in all a very enjoyable evening.

We've lived in Austin for 17 years and have been coming to Eddie V's for almost all of those years. It's truly one of the best restaurants in town, despite an ever growing population of new and innovative dining spots. The Hong Kong style Seabass, Scallops and Swordfish are some of my favorite dishes. My husband, ever the steak connoisseur, frequently orders the Filet Medallions with jumbo lump crab. Even my daughter, newly vegetarian, enjoyed a fabulous Miso Tofu entree. We have NEVER been disappointed by a meal at Eddie V's. It's particularly one of our favorite spots for birthdays and holidays. It's not an inexpensive place to dine, but you will feel like you've had a really special experience.

Sadly, Eddie V's has never been the once after Guy Villavaso and Larry Foles sold out to Corporate America's Darden Restaurants, Inc.

This is our third straight time that our dining experience has been subpar. Tuesday night was a special occasion (son's birthday and family Christmas celebration) and when you would have thought, on a weekday night, that Eddie V's would have plenty of qualified wait staff. This was not to be as the qualified wait staff told us they had been "slammed". This was somewhat puzzling because Eddie V's relies on reservations and the restaurant was not that crowded. The food was excellent (much better than our last dining experience). We were overcharged on two items. It is a shame that a fine restaurant like Eddie V's has gone downhill so quickly... so very sad.

This isn't our first visit to Eddie V's at the Arboretum, but it was our first time for Thanksgiving dinner here and it was exceptional! The thanksgiving dinner was delicious and the service was fantastic, as usual. We always enjoy our dinners here, but now we have a reason to stop stressing about cooking big Thanksgiving meals at home and rather have a wonderful meal here and enjoy the view while we eat.

I've always loved Eddie V's for their superb seafood. This time we were there for Thanksgiving dinner and were very happy with the traditional Thanksgiving turkey, dressing, green beans, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. We might make this a new tradition each year! The service was spectacular as always. Highly recommended!
