This was our first visit to Eddie V's, and I must recommend it very highly. Our appetizer of choice was the STEAK AND LOBSTER TARTARE which was a generous portion of both wonderfully spiced chopped raw steak and succulent chopped spiced lobster; very delicious. Second was a generous cup of lobster bisque; creamy and replete with lobster and shrimp. Our... More

We had Red Fish and Chilean Sea Bass, both were delicious! Really good Caesar Salad. Save room for desert, the Bananas Foster "Butter Cake" is amazing and the Hot Chocolate Godiva Cake hit the spot, if you like chocolate.

There was live jazz the night we were here. I had a filet which was very good and everyone else enjoyed their meals as well. Ambiance is upscale but not stuffy. The service was very good, polite and helpful.

A must visit restaurant in Austin. One of the best. Fish is the best to get at Eddie V's. They valet and reservations are recommended. Staff is always on their game and great at their job. Appetizers, entrees and deserts are all good. Wine menu is great as well.

I'm a bit over high priced steak house, but this was a good exception. Tuna tartare was delicious and everyone enjoyed their beef. Blackberry cobler was awesome. Ask for Luigi for great service. Expect $100+ per person.

Took my husband here for his birthday while we were visiting Austin for a Horns game. The reviews are true, this is a fantastic restaurant and certainly a great place to celebrate. Did not realize this was a chain restaurant as we are from the northeast. Food and presentation was excellent, but the service was truly outstanding! We will definitely... More

Ambience, lovely, and romantic come to mind. Food selection was awesome. I personally loved the scallops. One small issue. Our menu did not have a wine list...in actually both menus. Service was great.

Eddie V's in downtown Austin is a do not miss list on my travel list. The seafood is without doubt a terrific choice, Grouper, Scallops and many more choices. The Bone In Ribeye is fantastic. Great wines to round out the dinning experience. Enjoy
