Love these guys! Great, great service, nice vibe. We started with martinis and oysters (yum!) My wife had a sea bass entree which was really good. I had the seared ahi tuna which was also excellent. For dessert we shared a banana's foster and a nice 20 year tawny port. Highly recommended!!!

The wait staff were fabulous!! We started outside on the patio. Unfortunately there were load and rambunctious children running around screaming in the patio area of the restaurant next door. We were moved inside. Dinner was delicious!! They made a special desert for my daughter’s birthday celebration.
It was a lovely evening. Highly recommend!!

As in previous visits, the food and drinks were fabulous and the service was excellent. Had a party of 7 on 9/13 for a birthday celebration and everyone had a great time. From the appetizers through dessert everything was delicious and we are already looking forward to our next visit. There is something on the menu for every palate and we highly recommend Eddie V's.

Another great dining experience at Eddie V's Wildfish. Appetizers -- calamari, sashimi, oysters, all great. Best sole and best lobster tacos too. We brought our own Lucia Pinot Noir to go with the food. Not the least expensive dining experience but one of the best.

The service was exceptional! Brian the Manager and Jessica, our server were hands down the best service experience I've ever had at a restaurant. The food was amazing! I had the Sea Bass and my friend had the steak. Both were really super delicious and great quality especially their seabass. We also had the lobster tacos and crab cakes. The lobster tacos are to die for! But my favorite part of the meal was the banana butter cake...a MUST!

I wish open table had a special use six star system so you could use it once or twice a year. If they did, Wildfish would certainly get my six star for the year! We’ve been to this restaurant multiple times and it never disappoints. Cody Our server is phenomenal. The food is outstanding and cody and the staff bent over backwards to make sure my father had a very special birthday. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough and look forward to our next and every future visit.

My husband and I met another couple there for a birthday. We were seated right on time with our reservation. Our server was very knowledgeable and professional. The food was delicious, as always, and at the end of the night he brought a really nice birthday dessert plate of three different types of dessert. It was a very nice evening.

While the scallops one of our party had were good, my branzino was mushy, not flakey and the soup was so salty it actually burned the throat. Staff was great and there was a nice crowd.

Chilean sea bass was awesome and so were the blue points and crab cake. Oh and the lobster tacos and just insane. My dads halibut though was good but the sauce was a bit much. Plus it was served in a bowl which was a bit awkward. Dirty martini wasn’t dirty and I had to ask for the olive juice to add. That’s ok. Our service was great. So attentive and helpful. Will Definately go back

We went to this "new" Eddie V's after going to the La Jolla location and loving it. While very different, this was also great. Bit of a strange location in a strip mall, but the space is great and the ambiance is very good. Service was truly amazing, among the best we have had in a long time! Thank you to Brian the manager and our amazing server also, both made us feel very welcome. The food was also excellent and the wine list is great and they happily provide tastes so you can pick. Highly recommended overall and we will be back!

Live local and have been here serval times and had great experiences all around. On Saturday the 10th had reservations on the outside patio as I was bringing very important out of town customers. Had the absolute worst service I have ever experienced in a high end restaurant and was completely embarrassed! We waited up to twenty minutes between times we saw the waiter. We brought high end wine Champagne and had to ask repeatedly as we sat with empty glasses. My wife ask 3 times for the same mixed dink. We sat for 20 minutes after our appetizers and no drinks and empty wine glasses before we saw him again to order our main course! Table 309, waiter Peter M. food was as good as always although not hot because we think he forgot us again. Arrived at 6:00 early for reservation got check at 9.17.

We have been to the Dallas Eddie V’s many times. This location had great food but, was lacking the quieter, intimate setting I expect from a higher end restaurant. None the less, great service and a great evening.

The child gulf shrimp was excellent , not only was it so fresh tasting I loved having the three choices for sauces. The Jumbo "oreganata style" shrimp will is now my favorite dish.
