Eddie V's - Arboretum Ratings and Reviews
Our past two trips have been lackluster. Our most recent was Friday 8/25 to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. Normally, you have a server and he/she has a helper coordinate drinks, meal and desserts. Everything shows up effortlessly and the customer never has to worry. Our server has been solo the last two times.
On Friday evening, we ordered drinks before appetizer and they showed a few minutes after the main course arrived. Tuna was undercooked (prefer medium). Server was just too busy. He tried to anticipate dessert and ordered for us. We quickly changed the order since we came for the chocolate mousse cake. Thank you for comping the dessert but we're not worried about the bill. We get so few opportunities for an amazing night out and we're willing to pay the $'s for it.
Its just a shame since we've been coming to Eddie V's for years and hold it in high regard. They use to be the benchmark for amazing service and a fantastic night out, but our last two trips make me think that they are slipping. We'll come back in a few months.
Our servers, Jeff & Ken were very accommodating and knowledgeable. Jeff steered us in the right direction in wine selection with a Chauteau du Sancerre. We enjoyed entire meal from pre-dinner cocktails, starters, through to the Bananas Foster dessert flambéd tableside! Eddie V's has and will contunie to be our go to restaurant in Austin for quality food, relaxed but upscale atmosphere and superb service. Our Scottish visitors were much impressed.
WOW is all I can say, it was our 32nd wedding anniversary and I hit a home run this year.
We had Stuart and Marcus were our waiters what a great duo, they really pampered us
I usually get the rib eye, but thought time to try a NY strip WOW!! is all I can say!!
Jane had the crab legs, unfortunately, they were a disappointment, seemed when the crab legs were frozen looked like they had freezer burn
Everything else was outstanding the downtown location also is a great place to eat and see the crowd
Eddie V's continues to be our go to place for fine dining and special occasions. Service and food are always extraordinary. Their recipes and food preparation have always exceeded my expectations. Our waiter, Yves, was exceptional. Just a great place to enjoy friends, family and a great meal. a
We've been here a number of times. If you're going for dinner, just know the prices are high, the portions large and mostly overly rich and butter-saturated. That said, the happy hour menu is fantastic if limited: light fare that's reasonably priced, with $2 East Coast oysters, $7 cocktails, and other items like fish tacos, lobster and crab wontons, lollipop lamb chops, tuna tartare, and calamari, along with their hot bread and yummy butter. Seating is first-come, first-served and the HH ("Eddie's Hour") menu is only served in the bar or the front small dining room, which is where we were seated. Service has always been impeccable, and this visit was no different. Highly recommend Happy Hour, but prices for main dining room remain far too high given the other fine dining options in Austin.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Eddie V's, and as usual everything was outstanding. Our steaks and seafood were expertly prepared, and our server Yaakov was very personable and professional. We really appreciate the extra little touches at Eddie V's as well: rose petals on the table, plus complimentary Prosecco and dessert. A very delightful evening!
We had a fabulous dinner at Eddie V.'s Arboretum. The dining room view was spectacular, just before sunset. The service was just as good. And the food?! Incredibly good! The filets were cooked to perfection, seafood was steamed and grilled just right. It was a great wine selection and it was such an amazing touch to have a birthday card, champagne toast and dessert presented to my Fiance for his birthday. Kudos, indeed!
Enjoyed our dinner there. Celebrating our new daughter in law's birthday. Cocktails and food were very good and our server was outstanding. Portions were huge and enough for lunch the next day. Interesting side options like lobster mashed potatoes. Complimentary desserts for the birthday girl were absolutely scrumptious and we are not big dessert eaters. Didn't leave a single bite.
It was Saturday night and the room was full so the noise level was very loud. Probably my only complaint. Would recommend this restaurant more for special occasions because it is a bit pricey.
We had our 3 year anniversary tonight. We have been to Eddie V's many times and have always had a great experience. This was the best one yet! Roses on the table, awesome server (sorry, can't remember her name), dessert and prosecco. It's why we will always choose y'all for a special occasion. Thanks again!
Food was outstanding ! Chef's preparations outstanding . The wait staff was the best i have ever encountered. We had the same waiter both times upon request. We were only visiting Austin and the Manager let us know they have a location in Scottsdale we will be visiting. Highly recommended
The food was all excellent, albeit expensive ($100/person). I had the halibut with lump crabmeat special ($45) that was recommended by the waiter along with other good suggestions. Service was prompt and very attentive yet never rushed. Quiet enough to converse in a normal speaking voice at a table for 5. No complaints other than I wish it were more affordable.
Everything was top drawer...our table had rose petals and a nice card from the staff. Had a great menu and wine selection. The crab cake was delish...main course was sea bass for my wife and I had the small filet, cooked to perfection. The house comp'd a choc mousse dessert which was as a good as they get! Service was great!
A perennial NW Austin gem, this particular evening did not fail to deliver. The food was excellent, the service professional and attentive, and the overall experience lived up to the restaurant's reputation. The price is high but not compared to the overall value Eddie V's provides.
A pet peeve is how reservations are handled. The same lackadaisical attitude applies here. Yes, they had my reservation. The clincher comes while the hostess reviews the seating chart. That odious scavenging for a table ought to be done prior to a guest's arrival, and a small placard 'reserved' be put on a table.
The server forgot to bring my companion's drink and an extra tab of butter and mentioned that, really, the only good appetizer that day is the crabcakes. Among the best dishes were the sidedish of garlicky broccolini and the crunchy bread, perfect in texture, appearance, and taste. I felt eager to try brussels sprouts, spinach, etc in the future.
I am a pescatarian. The Norwegian Salmon seemed somewhat overcooked, and its bed of young vegetables was lukewarm, rather than hot. My companion felt unenthusiastic about the red snapper. The appetizer calimari with cashews and with strings of crunchy, rice-like noodles was unwieldly to eat and was topped with a too-sweet sauce -- a fusion of Europe and Asia. I would try the server's suggestion about crabcakes.
A rave for the Caesar salad, a wonderfully sharp, savory blend of flavors and a delight to look at. A duo of chocolaty and vanilla-like cookies accompanied the plentiful butter pecan ice cream dessert and tasted good with cappuccino.
An expensive dinner, about $162 including tip and a glass of excellent wine. My companion's seat viewed the lovely, treed ravine. At my seat, the tabletop and seat were mismatched, and the booth cramped. My seat in the windowed main dining room was otherwise pleasant, and I adjusted to the odd height of the table. The pleasant background music added a relaxed ambience. Some things could have gone better, but there certainly were some highlights.
