This is by far my favorite happy hour spot in town. The food is always spectacular and is perfect for a special ocassion -- last year my mom and I even went to the Thanksgiving dinner, which was excellent. I've made this a regular stop on my happy hour circuit for $1 gulf oysters (with their signature atomic horseradish!), tuna... More

We went with a large group (about 20 people) and they were amazingly accommodating. The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. The shrimp and lobster bisque was really good, my steak was cooked perfectly (12 oz filet), and dessert was decadent.

This is our "go to" restaurant for any occasion. Friends in town? Eddie V's. Family celebration? Eddie V's. Romantic evening? Birthday? Always Eddie V's. The food is consistently exceptional and we've tried several things on the menu. The Parmesan Lemon Sole over the tippy top! Their crab cake is enormous and shares well. The service is always outstanding. We prefer... More

I made reservations for 6, including a small child. We valet parked for $10. The table was ready when we arrived on a busy Saturday night. The atmosphere was very nice and versatile. It was great for large groups or a romantic couples night out. We ordered a variety of seafood and steaks. The veggies were tasty, the steaks and... More

Setting, service, appetizers and dinner all very good. The scallops were my favorite appetizer. My Texas Redfish entree was very good. Nice wine list

We are regulars at Eddie V, in Austin and elsewhere when we travel. The food is always "right". The service is likewise consistently top notch. If you want simply good food you can recognize in Austin, and a great experience, EV is always near the top of the list. If you want food you don't recognize and a large side... More
