Over the past several years we have been to Eddie V's on multiple occasions. Every experience was great from the time we walked in to the time we left. This past visit however was a little off. It seems everyone at the restaurant was on point except our server. We didn't have terrible service but we have been accustomed to stellar treatment based on previous visits. Our server was just a little off from her monotone greeting to her overall lack of interest in being there. Have zero complaints about wait time or issues with the food but when you go somewhere for a special occasion and they acknowledge that when you first sit down but proceed to treat you as if you should have chosen another restaurant it gets a little awkward. That being said, fantastic lobster tacos and seafood to go along with an incredible wine list.

Normally they are on point with the food but last night they were way off. I ordered my steak medium rare however it came completely rare, skewer was still in the steak that they should have removed when plating and the crab had a large shell that I had to remove from my mouth. The only thing that was good was the dessert and truffle Mac and cheese. For the amount of money you spend there, I expect nothing but a great experience... they truly fell short last night. I won’t be in any hurry to return here.

Service is what one would expect from an upscale steakhouse: wait staff working in unison, attentive, obviously polished through training and well groomed in required uniforms. The food is exceptionally good, especially their crab fried rice and scalloped potatoes! The décor is nice but could use a bit more color against the wood treatments and beige lighting fixtures... that would brighten the place and take some of the dankness away. The dining areas are quite vibrant, meaning LOUD, but not too obnoxious that one cannot hold a private conversation because the table spacing is clearly well thought out. This is a treat, so go! Lobster tacos, wedge salad, 8oz filet mignon with stuffed shrimp. And that bananas foster cake... OMG!!!

My husband and I were visiting the Tampa area celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary. This was our 1st time visiting Eddie V’s and from the moment we walked in we knew it would be a great experience. We were about 10 mins late due to a GPS issue so our table was not ready when we made it but seating at the bar was available and we started off there with delicious cocktails. I had the 24K and I forget the name of my husbands drink. The table was perfect against the wall with a full view of the beautiful room. Our waitress (although I can’t remember her name) was the best! She told us about the Mac n cheese nicknaming it “heaven on a spoon” and boy was she right! The serving was enough for us to share. My husband and I both had steaks. Mine was paired with the crab legs and they were the best crab legs I think I’ve ever had. My husband had the lobster. We also received complimentary appetizer (calamari). The food was the absolute best! We live in Pensacola and plan to make a trip back soon just for the food

We requested a booth which was confirmed from the call the day prior without hesitation. Upon arrival, no booth and hostess asked our name several times. Took our server time to see us but my assumption was that he was not told we were sitting in his section because his service was spot on all night. Not the Eddie V’s experience we’re used to.

The things I ate and would order again if I went back... calamari, lobster tacos, crab fried rice, and butterscotch panna cotta. My NY steak was just okay. The corn side dish was not good, too many peppers. The service was awesome, everything was fantastic on that spectrum. Water was always filled. Proper plateware and silverware were given every course and they also clear it at the right times. It was very very kind of them to give a complimentary dessert for the birthday celebration. Overall, I enjoyed my time. Food wise, wouldn't be the first suggestion I would give to people who ask.

Admittedly, My husband and I are Food Snobs: From our experience of traveling weekly to NYC, CA, ITALY, FRANCE, SPAIN; Eddie V’s remained on our list of elegant, sophisticated, yet, casual and great for everyday dining.
I’ve continued ordering the same dishes from Eddie V’s because it’s always delicious!
I’ll start with the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail and South African Lobster Tail, then the Halibut and Filet Mignon while my husband orders the Tuna Sashimi as appetizer and the Snapper and Salmon as his choice of entrées. The Banana Foster with extra scoop of their Butter Pecan ice cream is a must! We are always happily satisfied with this restaurant.
Eddie V’s has excellent menu choices, Bar menu, prompt valet, attentive service, and sophisticated ambiance.
As long as we are conveniently in the Tampa Bay Area, we will continue to dine at Eddie V’s.

We had a wonderful time for our anniversary dinner. The ambience was very nice – there is an area that’s quiet And intimate and an area that’s moderately noisy and for engaging in group conversation. We had ribeye, stuffed shrimp, truffles Mac and bananas foster. My ribeye was delicious but I do prefer more fat trimmed off and I prefer a burst of flavor. The shrimp was great as well. The Mac was nice but I wouldn’t get it again as I do prefer at least a combination of cheddar and white vs white Sauce. Again, overall we prefer bursts of flavor and kick and this is simple good tasting high quality food. And I can appreciate simple quality taste.
Nathan was very knowledgeable, and quick on his feet. However I never enjoy my experience as much when I have to share our service team with a large group. It’s seems inevitable that we get neglected at points and have to wait a long time for small requests or glass refills. This was our first time at Eddie V’s and I will return for appetizers but I think it may be just a little overpriced, even for Tampa.

We usually have great service at Eddie V’s but August 9th we had a terrible experience there. We received our food one hour and forty minutes after we ordered. Our waiter said they were slow because of summer hours, I don’t know what that means. The manager came over after an hour wait and apologize and never returned to check on us or if the food was on our table. The couple beside us received free wine and we were offered the free dessert that comes with the meal when celebrating an anniversary or birthday. Did I mention we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. So disappointed in the management, they handled our situation poorly.
