Me and my wife had an amazing time! We went to Eddie V’s to celebrate my wife’s birthday, and she was amazed by the whole experience. Our waitress Berlin was phenomenal! The music was great! The food was beyond amazing! I believe Eddie V’s is now my wife and I favorite place. Thank you to all the staff that made the evening special for my wife.

Eddie V’s is one of my family’s favorite dining establishments. As always Jessica makes our dining experience memorable by her attentiveness and pleasant demeanor. She’s an extremely skilled server. We have experienced service from her colleagues in her absence but not the same result.
Our entrees are usually top notch but chef this time exceeded our expectations. Not sure what was done differently but our entrees were beyond fresh and prepared to perfection. Once again job well done.

Swordfish was moist. A bit on the thin side. Crab legs were good. Lobster bisque quite good.

Service was not up to par. Even though they tried to make it up to us I was disappointed. I don’t spend that kind of money to have to ask to be served. I have a reservation for 10 people next month and for the first time I’m considering a different restaurant as I’m hosting our keynote speaker and want to impress her.

I've eaten at Eddie V's locations in Houston and have always had great meals. The River North location didn't let me do! Went there for my wife's birthday and they her feel special with the table decoration and dessert sampler. The food was awesome as usual and we do so enjoy the Smoked Old Fashion!

The food and service were good. Our appetizer, the crab cake and Caesar salad were very good. The entrees, the Roast Filet and the chicken were very tasty but just a bit too salty. The sides, sauteed spinach and Au Gratin potatoes were perfect compliments but were also a bit salty. Nevertheless,
the food was very good.

This is the restaurant where my family and I have always selected for ambience, music, food and know that the experience always brings us joy. My now 5 1/2 year old granddaughter has happily celebrated our gatherings here since her 1st birthday. This photo was the last visit before she moved to Dallas!

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

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.
