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

We were hosting a luncheon in Austin the other day, first choice was to keep it at the Westin Downtown opposite the street but they were less flexible than an icebox and menus very average so we ended up at Eddie V's and what a treat!!! Eddie V's is one of THE restaurants in Austin and it's easy to understand... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a ride share driver. It went above and beyond my expectations. The food was amazing! The staff is so polite and friendly. My favorite meal while in Austin! The restaurant was super crowded and lively, I was happy we were off in one of the smaller side rooms. Wonderful experience!

I reluctantly attended a a group business dinner with last night with 30 folks in the the back. The main restaurant was full of multiple large groups of which it seems they thrive on. As expected from a Darden resturant (Olive Garden, Capital Grill, Yard House, Longhorn steakhouse) the food was over seasoned for the Amercan pallette. The BLT salad... More
