Went for anther birthday celebration and enjoyed the seafood tower appetizer which was a meal for two in itself, but we didn't stop there. Would say that appetizer was second to none if you enjoy lobster, crab meat, oysters, and shrimp. And then the sea bass entree was moist and delicious as expected.

Eddie V's is consistently very good with everything. Their service is impeccable and food always best quality. They have one of the best Happy Hours and the crowd that packs the bar area is a testament to it's popularity. We recently had their calamari, fish tacos, and lamb chops for happy hour which turned out to be more than enough... More

Everything was top notch. It was expensive, but perfect. We had reservations, and were seated immediately upon arrival. The food was excellent, and we took some of it home. The wait staff did everything right.

I first went here for Mothers Day this year. The menu for that day was very enjoyable. We found out that they have a great happy hour, and have been coming back for it frequently. The happy hour menu at the bar is great, but I always get the Calimari which is huge and delicious.

Consistency is key when it comes to dining and Eddie V's does not disappoint. The selection is great too -- steak or seafood, you're going to have a great meal. Service is always on point and the ambiance is seems to fit any occasion. If I were hosting an important dinner, Eddie V's would be my pick.

One of my favorite places for seafood in Austin Texas. Always fun to have a cocktail and appetizers in the bar area, then move to a table. My favorite place for a special location.

Eddie V's never disappoints! We had an amazing anniversary celebration that began with drinks in the bar and ended with a special dessert. Our meal was delicious and the service superb. Looking forward to our next visit!

Thank Lucy B
