The food was very good and prepared excellently. 1 tiny detail, some dishes were slightly salty but good none the less. Mr. Matthew, our waiter, w as s very knowledge of the menu and its accompaniments. Mr. Seth, the manager, was very friendly and accommodating to our needs which made us feel at home. Ms. Caitlyn and Ms. Molly were very pleasant and sociable getting us to our table promptly. The overall experience for my wife's birthday was fantastic. We will be back.

Wonderful food and drinks -- I especially loved "The Hope Diamond" cocktail and the Chilean Sea Bass. The Au Gratin potatoes are amazing as well! Cozy atmosphere as well.

It was amazing. The food and service were top notch. Our server was attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu. We started with the oysters, then proceeded to dinner of steak for him and fish for myself. We had the sides of truffle mac and cheese (amazing!) and mashed potatoes. We finished with the Godiva chocolate cake. We were super happy and pleased. We plan to be back for Valentine’s Day or another special occasion.

We love Eddie V’a and eat there quite often. We arrived early for our reservation and were told that our assigned table was still occupied and they were getting ready to leave. The party left and again we were told that the table was being made ready for us. As we were waiting, a “regular” came in without a reservation and was given the table that they had indicated to us. We were made to wait longer (past our reservation time) for a smaller table that was newly vacated. Not cool. I get special treatment for loyal regulars, but then perhaps you shouldn’t indicate specific tables to waiting customers.

I love Eddie V’s so I was so sad when we got our crab cake and it was buried in a mayo texture. Then we ordered the redfish and we didn’t eat it - we referred to it as redfish jerky. It was the worst meal I have had here - not the norm. We assume it must have to do with covid ?? Not sure as this isn’t the norm for Eddie V’s. Sadly the waiter didn’t ask if there was a problem - we told him we would just drink our wine instead of eat and he seemed to take us seriously with no concern.

Birthday dinner for my wife! Table covered with rose petals and a birthday card signed by all t to be staff. Table was ready on time, service was impeccable, and the food was wonderful. I had the Butterfish with crab on top and my wife had a filet. Both were excellent. The lobster bisque to start was delicious. Thanks Eddie V’s making it special.

As always food and service was great Wait staff had good advice, was friendly and helpful. The only think missing, and due to the virus, was the energy one feels from the other diners. We felt totally safe and would go again without being concerned.

As always, the food and service were fabulous! Gabriel was an outstanding server and the restaurant felt very safe and distanced in all the COVID craziness. If you are ready for a fine meal, served in a lovely atmosphere with great service, please visit this Eddie V's location. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for and it was totally worth it. We will be back again soon.

My husband took me to celebrate my Birthday. They had rose petals on the tablecloth with a little Happy Birthday note signed by all their staff. They didn't rush us at all and everyone was so accommodating. The food was wonderful. I had the lobster bisque and my husband had the crab cake for appetizers. Both appetizers were quite large and so great! I had beef medallions with a crab topping and he had a wonderful fish entree. When we finished they removed the plates and replaced it with a dessert sampler that was wonderful. Thanks Eddie V's for such a memorable Birthday dinner!

Left the UT game early to catch some of the second half at the EddieVs bar area. Lobster tacos were amazing as usually, and the halibut specials was outstanding! EddieVs continues to meet and exceed expectations, which is why they remain my favorite restaurant!

We celebrated our anniversary and watch the sunset for the main dining room. Our food was as always terrific. Dan, one of the managers, came over and introduced himself to us and got our names as well. We had a nice conversation not too long not too short, it was just perfect. We really enjoyed Eddie V‘s, And this location has a particularly personal touch.

We visited Eddie V’s for our anniversary this week. I booked the reservation through Open Table. When we arrived at the restaurant, the table was set up with rose petals and a congratulatory card signed by the staff. Our service was top-notch from beginning to end. We had a table by the window with a great view of the hills. And our dinner ended with a Happy Anniversary dessert and champagne. The lobster bisque, crab cake, lobster tails and king crab eggs were all excellent. And oh my, the truffle mac and cheese was the ultimate indulgence to add on. It was creamy and delicious. We had been to Eddie V’s before, but not for a special occasion. This will now be our go-to!
