Extraordinary ribeye and service to go with it. Nice recognition for special birthdays. Server was exceptional and hostess did well to accommodate our table request. Pricey but worth it.

Went here on business with vendor. Excellent Texas Red Fish. Waiter was attentive, personable, and knowledgeable. It was very busy and packed tight but food was fantastic! Pricey but worth the experience.

Wait staff was very attentive, kind and helpful in suggesting options from the menu. The environment was perfect for the two of us and quiet enough to allow for conversation but not so quiet that it could be overheard. We will be going back to this place again when time allows.

Wanted a splurge meal for our last night of vacation. Eddie V's was excellent. Had a table in the bar area with live music. Service was top-notch and friendly. Food was expertly prepared: seafood and steak. Lobster mashed potatoes were decadent. Try to save room for dessert and have the bananas foster butter cake.

Had dinner here with a colleague and we weren't disappointed. We both really enjoyed our meals. My steak was cooked to perfection and tasted excellent. The service was friendly and efficient without being over bearing. Will definitely go back.

Love hearing some jazz and Bruce Springsteen. The artist had an album out so his talent shone through with voice range and piano magic. Nice vibe with fast service from Eric who has worked here for years. I always have a super meal and enjoy the crab - this time tasted the spinach side which was done to perfection. Cannot... More
