We went to Eddie V's for Happy Hour to celebrate my partner's birthday. So glad we did! Drinks were good (Mojitos & beer) and food was excellent: potstickers were flavorful, lobster tacos were delicious & calamari was generous & to die for! Our waitperson Zach provided superb service: he was friendly, helpful with suggestions & attentive. We have been to... More

We had a great dinner on a Saturday night, in this busy but efficient restaurant. We had a odd table of 3 for dinner and we had pre drinks in the bar area, which was busy, then moved to our table efficiently. Our Waiter was pretty good not to over the top and had some good opinions on our suggested... More

I think it is a little over rated and expensive. Steaks were fantastic but the seafood was only ok, restaurant was very noisy, I don't want to hear crying babies when I am in a place like this. Especially if I paid for a babysitter myself. Waiter was just doing his job, not over friendly or very attentive. Decor is... More

Outstanding 'white jacket' service. While a few of the dishes selected by my companions (6 diners) were not of the highest quality the overall experience was exceptional. Great location.

We were a party of 6, celebrating our time at SXSW, and we had a amazing time at Eddie V's. We went with Luigi's recommendations, had oysters, the tomahawk steaks for the table, veggie sides, mac and cheese, and bananas foster for dessert. Excellent service, food was impeccable, wine was lovely, and the pacing of the meal was great. We... More

I and three colleagues visited the restaurant twice during SXSW 2015, it was that good. Wonderful service (both times), knowledgable staff, fantastic wines and great food - seafood in particular, these guys do wonderful fusion cooking where beautifully sautéed, grilled, or steamed fish is combined with shellfish, avocado and lime. They also do a mean, perfectly cooked Creole style steak.... More

My wife and I wanted to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary at some place special and we chose Eddie V's in downtown Austin. We were not disappointed. There was a lot of traffic congestion due to SXSW, so it was nice to have valet parking available. The restaurant is very dark, but clean and classy. The service was impeccable and... More

Amazing restaurant. The tomato bisque is top notch. Happy hour is the best. The crab rice bake was delicious. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and designed to make it a sight to see.

We enjoy all the food at Eddie V's. However, since it is very expensive, we often go for their happy hour specials. The oysters are amazing! The bread they serve is fresh and delicious. It is a special occasion restaurant!
