I have always enjoyed my visits to Eddie V's however, I was very disappointed with the service we recieved this last visit on Friday, 1.17.20. We were a group of about 15 in the bar area. There weren't enough seats so several of us were standing around the bar. The majority of us had been there since around 4:45pm for happy hour. Around 8pm the bartender, Antonio, yells very rudely to my group..."listen, anyone over here ordering a drink needs to present a credit card and open a tab." Everyone looked in our direction. I was shocked and confused at the same time. I asked if something happened because I could not understand why he said that. He said, "No. I'm just letting everyone know because it's a lot going on over here." I say, "It's alot going on around the entire bar!" He proceeds to tell me, "well I'm just letting you know." He was extremely unapologetically rude.

Meanwhile, several of us have been standing around the bar waiting on seats to become available for about an hour. I notice Antonio placing reserved signs around the bar area. I ask Antonio to reserve me a couple of seats around the bar. He proceeds to tell me that there are 4 people waiting ahead of me. I tell him how is that when I've been standing here for an hour and he has sat several people ahead of me. I inform him that the hostess told me that the bar was open seating so I didn't understand how you can reserve seats at the bar. And when I speak with the manager, Jeremy, he had no valid response as to why the rules about open bar seating changes with the wind.

An excellent date night spot or for smaller business dinners. Eddie V's does have private rooms available for larger events up to 70-80 people - I know - I hosted my wedding there and they did an exceptional job. Went back for our anniversary dinner and was very pleased they are continuing the tradition of excellence - we both had seafood dishes there were fantastic.

I made reservations for 4 in the bar area then called a few days later to change it to 6 as Open Table was experiencing technical issues. We were celebrating 3 birthdays - my 60th! When I spoke to the young woman to adjust reservation from 4 to 6, I asked specifically NOT to seat us close to the band. She assured me that this would be accommodated. When we all arrived, we were shown to a table so close to the band, they had serious issues getting around us (one member in the bad was disabled) when they took a break. Not to mention we were at a pub style table where 5 of us were in chairs and one in our party had to resort to the bench style seat against the wall which clearly made her much shorter than the rest of us. I was extremely upset but the others were good sports.

We had a fantastic dining experience, made even better by our server, Joel. We are frequent fine diners and Eddie V's is one of our favorite restaurants. Crab cakes are the best in Houston-Galveston. Filet steak was perfect temperature and cut. Truffle Mac/Cheese was incredible, as usual. This will continue to be our go-to spot for both celebrations and spur of the moment dinners.

Don’t go there. We have enjoyed dining there and having Walter as our server for years. We were assured he’d be there. He wasn’t. Instead we got rude people and incredibly slow service. I finally went to the back to beg for my food.
The steak was barely warm and the very hot place did little to warm it.
They have a couple of grim faced men wandering around who have no intention of helping.
Even the Banana Foster was hard and dry
I called the manager to warn him about his staff. He said he’d check and call me back. He didn’t

We have eaten at Eddie V's in City Center a number of times and meals are always outstanding.
However, both my wife and I agree that both of our meals were really sub - par. Maybe they just had an off night, but another meal or two like this, we'll be changing our restaurant preference. Too expensive for a not-so-good food experience.

We were treated like celebrities from the moment we walked in. We were celebrating our anniversary, we were greeted with a happy anniversary (both the hostess and the waiter), rose petals on the table, and a champagne toast. Our waiter Anil was awesome. He Assisted with selections from wine through dessert. We were given a dessert and a cappuccino free of charge. The food was unbelievable. I would definitely go back given the experience we had. Probably the best all around night out in years, and we dine out regularly. Can’t say enough about Eddie V’s.

Our waiter spoke way too fast for us to understand what he was saying. I asked him to slow down and he did for a few seconds and then sped up again. I have to wonder whether he felt that he was required to get through his spiel rather than convey critical information to his customer. I suspect this is a training and feedback issue for this waiter and NOT a disciplinary issue.

Visited Eddie V’s twice while in town on holiday. We were so impressed by the food, service and quality, we had to return on our last night with friends. We all had the Hong Kong Sea Bass, to die for! Their Scallops (the small ones, not sure of the exact name) were a special that night so we also ordered that entree for the table as a side. Very flavorful. Our first night there our wonderful waiter, Chris, surprised us with a Bananas Foster on the house. It tasted so homemade. He was excellent with helping us choose our dishes amongst the many desirable dishes on the menu. Our waiter the second night, Tim, was very gracious handling our table through wine bottle selection changes and a friend who got a bit too loud. He remained very professional. We look forward to going back on our annual Houston trip next year!

My waiter was very attentive and the food was superb. I am a crab cake and mojito connoisseur! I loved the crab cakes. Honestly, the best I have thus far in my life! They were so full of crab and a little panko for crunch. The sauce mixed with a splash of lemon and a few drops of Tabasco really set them off! The sea bass was seasoned and blackened to perfection upon my request. The lobster Mac and cheese was so soft and fluffy with large pieces of lobster...so good! The crab fried rice was very new and interesting for me but it did not disappointment with large pieces of soft tasty crab meat throughout. I honestly forgot the name of the strawberry mojito but it too was the best flavored mojito I’ve had. Thank you so much for the fine dining experience. I will be back.

This was the first time that I have been extremely disappointed with the food at Eddie V’s in City Center. I have been visiting this Resturant for years.. I must say I have noticed a change in the food since Ryan the manager has left.. on several occasions the crab fried rice has been overcooked and downright hard.. the last visit the crab cakes had no flavor, when seated for our 1030 reservation we were not served bread until 1230 am after asking several times. Amanda was our server and she did all she could with the exception of baking the bread herself.. I made this reservation 3 weeks in advance looking to enjoy the fresh fish, Either the redfish, trout or sole.. Upon ordering at 11 pm we were told that none of the fish were available.. It made my NYE celebration BLAH!!!!! I was so disappointed... I probably won’t be back.. I celebrated NYE 2018 there but moving forward, I will be looking elsewhere to celebrate... such a let down.. 😔😔😔😔

We always have a great time in the lounge at Eddie V's. The service and food is fantastic and the ambiance is very "cool" . The manager went above and beyond for us this night. They did not have my wife's favorite Chardonnay Rombauer, so the manager went to a local store and picked up a few bottles. Now that's awesome service!

Chris was an outstanding server and was very engaging. He provided a great experience for our anniversary. With regard to the food. The shrimp cocktail (with remoulade),the lobster bisque, Branzino, banana fosters cake were all great. The Ceasar salad was too vinegary and the sauce on the Redfish was too gravy like and not a mueniere sauce.

Christmas Eve family dinner. We were seated in a separate room from the main dining area thus it was very quiet. Calamari as always was spicey and excellent as was the lobster bisque. All had fillets medium rare with one severely undercooked. Huge time lapse between bisque and steak thus we didn’t send the steak back for more cooking. Said kitchen was backed up, however, restaurant was emptying as we were ordering so not sure. Lamar’s service was excellent as he was attentive to all our needs.
Still a very enjoyable evening.

Very discouraged. Went Christmas Eve, while most were dressed i find it offensive in a upscale restaurant that you allow bermuda shorts and flip flops at the dinner hour. The staff at this particular restaurant need more training, knowledge of items offered was very little.
