It was all good -- no complaints about the food, drinks, nor service. But we expected it to be much better. Compared to Flemings at the Domain in Austin, this doesn't measure up at all. It is closer to Sullivan's on Colorado Avenue a couple of blocks away.

Most people think of Eddie V's as a seafood restaurant (probably because of the name). At least half the time, I get steak. And their steaks are great. Usually I'll get a filet and sometimes I'll get a sauce to go with it. It's always great. An absolute favorite is the seafood tower, which we've gotten several times and is... More

If you are looking for "The Right Place" in downtown Austin for a special occasion, you cannot beat Eddie V's! If you like high- end yet casual dress/atmosphere with an option for live music (at the bar area) then this is your place. Fabulous, dedicated servers with an eye for "what needs to be taken care of" combined with an... More

Definitely one of my favorite places for seafood. Happy hour is great and dinner excellent whether celebrating an occasion or just having a nice dinner. Chilean sea bass never fails and steaks are surprisingly good for a seafood restaurant.

My wife and I have visited Eddie V's for quite a few years as our Anniversary treat. If we could pay the tab we would go weekly because the food is always amazing and the service experience is something you must experience first hand to understand. We have had the great pleasure in having RC take care of us for... More
