This has been a favorite of mine for years. It is expensive but so worth it. Service has always been top notch and never a disappointing meal. I recommend the Chilean sea bass Hong Kong style! The sides are large enough to share. I want to go for happy hour as they have some specials then.

The food and service were awesome! We had a party of about 25 people. We were all impressed with every aspect of our dinner. The steaks were prepared with care and the seafood was fresh and delicate tasting. I definitely recommend this tasty restaurant.

I have been going to Austin for a business conference for the past four years and I have complained that I have not had really good steak. Which was baffling to me since this is Texas! This year, we tried Eddie V's and finally had a really good steak. I ordered the bone-in 22oz. Yes, I love my steak but... More

Absolutely the most delicious meal. Started with the lobster bisque. For the meal we ordered the filet oscar with asparagus and it was cooked perfect! Texas steaks are amazing. Dessert was the bananas foster and comes highly recommended! Coming to Austin you must come here :)

We are a loud and very well educated "foodie" group, Right from the first course we were hooked. Second course even better! Too full for dessert but ate it anyway because it was THAT good, Don't...

Eddie V's has a great Happy Hour with discounted appetizers and drinks, jazz music. Love the service, food and atmosphere at downtown location. It is also a wonderful place for a special celebration, attention to detail is really great.

Eddie V'S is my favorite restaurant in Austin, TX! From the service, to the food and the ambiance. I have been there twice in the last 3 months and was greeted by every Server I made eye contact. The Managers came to greet us a couple of times and provided a complimentary bottle of red wine for our table since... More
