Service was poor- waited 45 minute me for drinks..food came out 90 minutes later and was cold..raw sewage deeper through cracks of both ladies and gentlemen bathroom..poor experience to say the least. Incredibly disappointed.

Good food -- should be great for the prices. Seems like a bit of a factory -- kind of place where folks who don't go out often go for special occasions. We do dine out frequently and wouldn't have chosen it other than a vendor gave us a gift card. We were there on a Saturday evening, pre-theater. I am sure it is a business dinner choice during the week. Nothing special really.

The experience was by far exceptional. The service was great and the manager Mikal Shakir was personable and a joy to encounter. Every restaurant of this caliber should have a floor manager as Mr. Shakir.

Initially, we were seated in the lounge. The music was so loud, we literally had to yell across the table to be heard. We were re-seated quickly and without issue. The next table was more quiet but certainly not “peaceful”.
The calamari dish was fantastic! It paved the way for what I felt was going to be a stellar meal. Unfortunately, it went down hill, quickly, from there. The dishes were over cooked and underwhelming. Given the cost of the meal and our expectations, the experience was very disappointing.

This is our go-to for special occasions when we travel to Chicago. My husband had the butter fish and I had the scallops - I'd be hard pressed to pick which one I loved more. And the Bananas Foster cake for dessert - wow! Just wow.

Food and service great. Music went on break about 20 minutes after they got there which was disappointing. Seemed. Did not like the mashed lobster but probably my taste versus the actual food. My steak was cooked great and the lobster on top of it was small for surf and tirf combo but tasted good. My friends lobster was served beautifully in a covered pot and indicated it was great. Service was outstanding. For a Thursday night it was rather empty but it is January. Summary. Good service good food but just not sure its worth the 250 bill with tip

Enjoyed my dining experience at Eddie V's attention was given to every aspect.
Arrived for a Birthday Celebration and the table was covered with confetti with Happy Birthday. There was plenty of staff to ensure you had a great dining experience.
The value for the meal was on the high end however overall a great dining experience.
A Jazz Band was playing the evening I was there.
The lighting was very dark.

Could not get regular mashed potato’s, no one in our party liked the lobster mashed (didn’t seem fresh).

Seating arrangements were not optimal for a special occasion.

Awesome experience but not cheap. We came in after winning a gift card which made it worth it, the good is great, the cocktails are strong and tasteful and the staff were very nice.
Highly recommended if you're not conscious about price.

As soon we arrived we expressed interest in purchasing $ 500.00 dollars worth of gift cards due the promotion you were running. We spoke to three different girls at the desk including the hostess, NO One followed up with us! Incredible lazy staff!
