It just occured to me that whenever we've gone to Eddie Vs, there are no female servers. There are female hostesses, but we've never had a female server. What's up with that Eddie Vs? I imagine a server gig there might be a good paying job. Where are the women?

Excellent service, absolutely fresh fish, nice view. Our server had the right mix of being friendly and highly professional. The GM checked in on us. I’ll be back!

The service was excellent however they sat us in a weird spot kinda by the door. We would have liked to sit in the dining room. Also my husbands steak was over cooked but he didn’t want to wait for it to be corrected so he just ate it.

The food is always consistently good. Very nice service with a complimentary, little treat on or bought to your table. The Chilean Sea Bass is my absolute favorite and the banana’s foster is out of this world!

Have been going to Eddie V's for years. Prior to the takeover by Darden, the staff was much more friendly and likeable.

I made a reservation on OpenTable for a Bar seating for 2. When I got there the hostess (who was pretty snippy) tried to seat us at the table in the bar (where we didn't want to sit nor had I reserved) rather then at the bar. Keep in mind that there was NO ONE seated at the bar at that time. When I told her we wanted to sit at the bar, she told me that there had other reservations but would accommodate us if we promised to leave by 6 PM when they had other reservations. Since it was about 4:15 PM I was surprised by that comment.

I guess that the 6 PM customers were more important the my guest and me.

The experience left a really bad taste in my mouth, not sure if I will go back which is sad since we have been regular customers for many year.

If there were more stars I would have given them, too. The Eddie V's team did an exceptional job and the meal couldn't have been more perfect.

We were in a difficult situation... mom passed away two weeks before her 68th anniversary, and she and dad have been celebrating anniversaries at Eddie V's since this location opened twenty years ago. We knew dad would want to carry on the tradition in her honor, but it would be a bittersweet evening.

I called and explained the situation to the hostess, and she absolutely stepped up to make the best of a tough evening. We wanted a nice dinner while following his cues as to how much to 'celebrate' or have room for reflection, and it was clear that everyone from the manager to the back staff were aware of the story.

Our server Chrissy was the perfect person for our table (there were four of us), and she subtly kept the focus on dad. She was GREAT with an 89 y/o guest, speaking slowly and clearly so he could follow what she was saying.

She and the table team were on top of things, magically appearing from the shadows whenever a glass needed to be filled or a plate removed. I am emphasizing the service, because that's what separates the very good from the great restaurants. I think Eddie V's falls into the latter category.

Food, as always, was exceptional. St. George's Scallops, Redfish, and Filet Mignon were all highest quality and prepared exquisitely. Portions were generous for the price, both entrees and side dishes. Dessert, too, was portioned such that two were more than enough for our party of four.

I am not one to write reviews, but I was REALLY touched by the way this team helped turn a difficult night into a memorable evening. I give two HUGE thumbs up to Eddie V's in The Arboretum.

The seafood was good, but the steak had no seasoning and not much flavor (like hotel food). It’s overrated for what it should be at this price. The service IS excellent though. Probably I won’t ever spend this much at a non-local chain restaurant again though. If you enjoy relatively unseasoned food, or if you want to appear wealthy to a date, you would probably love this place though.

Perfect setting for our anniversary dinner. The food and service were excellent. There is plenty of space between tables, so we felt comfortable eating inside. This will definitely be a new go-to restaurant for us for date night and special occasions.

Easter brunch was phenomenal The lobster quiche had huge portions of lobster and the consistency was excellent. The salmon was fantastic and homemade cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting were to die for! WOW! The fresh berries and fresh cookies was a perfect ending to the meal the bananas foster was outstanding as well. Once again the Eddie Vs team never disappoints. Service was outstanding and everyone is so friendly. Our table of 8 was impressed.

As always, excellent service all around. We go for special occasions only because of the pricing, but are not complaining about the pricing as it has always been 'fine dining.' We will be return customers again, thanks to Danielle for the 5 star service!

Eddie V's was absolutely worth the visit. Food and Service was outstanding and I would recommend it in a heartbeat to those who love a good Seafood Restaurant. The place is nice, a bit quiet for my style, but that's normal for a fine dining restaurant. We ordered the Oysters, Chilean Sea Bass, Scallops and Truffled Mac & Cheese.. I would order all of that again next time I visit! Totally recommend it!

Had an amazing time and can highly recommend this restaurant. It’s pricey, but for a treat or a special occasion is is great value. The restaurant also has great views to the west so a top tip is to ask for a table by the window and enjoy the sunset.
