The visit was not a memorable one. It is very crowded, the tables are packed in tightly to each other. The noise is so loud you can't hear yourself think let alone talk to who you're with. The food was over priced. The good parts of the visit were parking which was made easy by the valet service provided. The... More

We had the scallop special appetizer, and it was delicious. Scallops can be bland but this dish was prepared Asian style and very tasty. The red fish with crabmeat had a classic meuniere sauce that was excellent. My son had the swordfish which he enjoyed. The side dishes of broccolini and potatoes au gratin were great. The atmosphere is very... More

The atmosphere of sophistication and class was very present. The staff was attentive and friendly. The meal was absolutely fantastic! The sole in a lemon garlic sauce was soooooo good, and the jumbo shrimp was amazing. The shared sides were also good, however the au gratin potatoes were served a little cold. The drinks and overall meal were all wonderful,... More

One of those things about restaurants is the service. Attentive and happy. That being said, so fresh!!! The salmon was amazing!!! My wife had a dish that she was nearly unwilling to share! A white fish dish with a lemon white wine sauce. Awesome!!! Definitely suggest!!!

Excellent overall dining experience. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and Eddie V's did a lovely job of seating us in the quiet section of the restaurant. The rose petals (in the shape of a heart) complimentary sparkling wine toast, and desert were a really nice touch. For a seafood forward restaurant, the quality of the filet and preparation were outstanding!... More

Eddie V's is the kind of restaurant you go to when you want to impress. The servers wear white coats and the food is just as serious. Whether you're ordering steak, seafood, or other, the food is excellent. This is the second consecutive year that my company has hosted a customer appreciation dinner at Eddie V's and this restaurant certainly... More

The service was great. Our waitress was very friendly and did a great job of suggesting what to order. I think our appetizer was probably the best shrimp I've ever had! Steak and lobster was cooked perfectly and our drinks were great. I will definitely be back here!

Have eaten here many times over the past 7 years. Excellent food in all parts of the restaurant. However, to enjoy the live jazz dine in the bar area. Whether you have steak or seafood you will find the food, presentation, and service to be "top drawer".

Eddie Vs does a nice job of serving seafood dishes. Presentation, quality and service are all aspects of the restaurant. This is a nice place and should be treated as such.
