Eddie V's - Chicago
Book your next event with us
This dining experience fell far short from as advertised
Many aspects of typical fine dining service overlooked.
Tableware not changed to change table seating layout
Water not refilled until glasses empty and had to request refill
Plate removal slow to where we had to move plates out of the way
Yellow Tail sashimi if ordered gluten free was plain and not worth the price.
Red snapper was nicely done
Steak was brought to the table extra rare when medium plus was requested.
Sides were cold by the time resolved (and the steak was still nearly raw in some areas).
Creme brûlée was cold throughout - slightly crispy too but cold.
Waiter and staff were very nice but save yourself 400 and go elsewhere.
It saddens me to leave a review like this as the restaurant has everything it needs to be excellent
Nice bday dessert provided!
I really enjoyed myself and had a wonderful time. Food was amazing.
Wonderful Night celebrating our Anniversary at Eddie V's. The table was decorated for our special occasion with a rose, some small hearts and a card. Our waiter, Brooks, and his under waiters took very good care of us. I wanted to have fish so Brooks recommended the Seabass, wonderful choice. It was light, succulent and infused with flavor. My husband had the Filet of Beef. He said it was cooked perfectly, had that delicious char on it that adds to the flavor and was exactly what he was hungry for.
We were treated to a very nice Anniversary dessert that was fun, delicious and just the right amount to finish our meal and celebrate our special day.
We will be back when we visit Chicago again.
The food was good and innovative. The service was poor. No one checked on quality of the food, appetizers were delivered to the table by the executive chef and literally minutes after they were ordered which made us think they were pre-prepared, rather than prepared to order. Bread was removed from the table without asking. Check was presented before we finished our wine. Had to ask for remainder of wine to be poured, it was a white, so on ice not on the table. Perhaps a great experience if different waitstaff.
This restaurant was fabulous. Brooks our waiter made the experience even better. The lobster is the best i have eaten anywhere in the midwest. The service, ambience and food make it a great place to go for any occasion.
What a wonderful 50th birthday dinner for my bestie! Berlin was an excellent server, our food was mouthwatering. Steak cooked perfectly and the best scallops this foodie has EVER had! We were seated in an oval booth facing out to the live jazz show, which was lovely. They even brought out a delicious complimentary birthday dessert and dark chocolate covered strawberries—my friend’s favorite!! I would recommend this Chicago Eddie V’s to everyone!
Our group of 4 had a wonderful dinner and we enjoyed the entire experience — excellent drinks, starters, seafood, sides, and wine, with terrific service and nice ambience and upscale contemporary decor. There was live music in the lounge, which we could hear and enjoy, but which never interfered with our conversation. Service also was excellent. Would highly recommend.
Service was great - definitely recommend the Banana Foster. Calorie count is scary but well worth it!!!
Great place for a celebratory dinner. The live band was very good! Our server was very attentive and friendly. The only flaw was the lobster pot I had was over cooked but other than that it was delicious.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal with perfectly prepared food. Our server Berlin was attentive and personable.
Great food and outstanding service!
Smooth, efficient service! Delicious drinks skillfully prepared and presented. Attentive Waitstaff. And to top it off the Food was Awesome!
Food was outstanding and service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Overall the best experience we’ve had anywhere in the last 10 years. The food quality and the way the food was prepared was as perfect as perfect gets. If you get lucky enough to be looked after by Jacek who was overseeing our table. He’s a true professional in every way. It’s been days and we’re still talking about how amazing everything turned out for us. Thank you Sarah the manager for checking on us throughout the evening and to the chefs for making every dish absolutely perfect 👌 Way to go guys thank you very much 👍
It was my birthday, they treated me and my party like royalty
Very nice. We were surprised with cute little decoration on the table for our birthday. Our waitress surprised us with deserts for our birthday. As always, it was a really nice dining experience. This is our favorite restaurant.
My go to place for Dover sole and crab stuffed shrimp. A little loud for business entertaining. Excellent
Great food, service and live jazz! The presentation for each dish was amazing and everything tasted perfect.
We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday for a special friend. The food was phenomenal and the ambiance was on point.
Love this place and the food and service is excellent
When in River North area of Chicago...Don’t miss this outstanding restaurant for dinner and cocktails. Live music in the lounge, an exceptional staff, and a menu that will satisfy anyone’s palate.
it’s too expensive for the value, they need to explain the menu better to understand it, portions are very large
Great time, service, and food.
Eddie V’s is the total package for your dinning experience!
Beautiful birthday presentation of B as nana's fister and sorbet. Yes, they flame the bananas foster!
Second time at this location. We ate early (4:45pm) due to a flight out of O'Hare. Frank, our server, provided excellent service, had a sense of humor, and gave great recommendations on appetizers and desserts! The crab cake appetizer had lump crab meat. The Filet entrée was cooked to perfection and had splendid flavor. I asked Frank for some creamy horseradish for the filet and he didn't hesitate to go make it special in the kitchen for me. We had the grilled brussels sprouts, and mac & cheese for sides and both were excellent. Dessert was crème brulee, and mango sorbet -- an awesome finish to a great meal. We had a booth in the bar area, and halfway through our meal, a trio started playing music. I don't know the name of the trio but they were phenomenal!! Played all types of music and the woman singer had one heck of a voice. A fun evening.
Very pleasant and relaxing.
Excellent, as always.
We had a great experience. Brandon the waiter was so patient, knowledgeable, and super kind. Food was very good and restaurant was super clean. We will be back
The food and service was excellent!! The lobster tacos have won me over!
The service was bad. Three different things appetizer was wrong and then late. My food was wrong then late. The waiter was indifferent ... I also heard another guess complaint to management
Always great food and atmosphere. Our server was amazing!
Came here for our 5-year wedding anniversary, and the staff made it a wonderful experience all around, with a complementary toast and dessert. Can’t recommend it enough.
I love Eddie V’s! Nothing more to say.
EXCELLENT....you have to try the Hope Diamond
Overall, the experience tonight was very good. I decided to try something new which is called the lobster pot, but it left me feeling a little under satisfied. But, the sides were wonderful and the lobster was good, but I guess my expectations were just a little higher than what I experienced tonight. Eddie V’s still remains one of my favorites.
Amazing! Our waiter, Brandon, made it a wonderful experience besides the fantastic meal.
