We went here because we were looking for some good fish, and it was better than we expected. The server was awesome, so nice and attentive. The food was insane, way too good! I had lobster tails, they were huge and very fresh. Highly recommend!

Seriously fabulous food...expensive but worth it. We save Eddie V's for special occasions. If you're a tourist and willing to spend some money on one of your dinners, Eddie V's will not disappoint. Check out their menu for seafood as well as steaks. Their cocktails are ridiculously delicious, too. Valet parking is also offered, a boon since downtown parking can... More

An absolutely amazing place and a wonderful place to go. The ambience is great. The wait staff impeccable and efficient. The food is presented well and really delicious. There was 11 of us and our meals ranged from steaks to shrimp, oysters, lobster bisque. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Pricey but worth every cent. Definitely on our return list.

We were in Austin on vacation and went to Eddie V's on New Years Eve. The food was delicious as was the service. My only complaint is the lighting. It's simply past a "mood" setting. It's dark.

Service & Food 👍🏼 When traveling we always like to find our favourite 'special' dining restaurant that matches what we love at home. We found it here. The service was outstanding. We learned that they have very little staff turnover here and you can see why. We've never had a crab cake like this, wow! The Caesar salad is authentic... More

This place got big wows from everyone in our party. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about everything they offer including their extensive wine list. The food was expertly prepared to everyone's preferences and was absolutely delicious. This is a restaurant of a price point not for everyone but if it's is for you, you can't go wrong.
