We have been customers at the downtown Eddie V's for some years and returned last week. The restaurant has reached a new high, in quality of food and service. There is also a real buzz of people, enjoying the food and drink and each others' company. We commend this steak house, a leader among fine Austin steak houses.

Recommended by hotel concierge. Got there after long day's travel. Drinks were good and starter was great. The entree (fish) was very good and dessert was great. Service was polite and prompt, but not pushy.

Good ambience. Restaurant was buzzing. Fantastic choice. Well presented. Quite pricey. Service was very good. Crab called were full of crab and delicious. Not padded out with potato like a lot of others. We shared one as a starter - more than enough. The lobster tail with shrimp and scoloops was amazing. Sadly my husband's steak was tough. Our friends... More

Top class service and nice atmosphere. We used private room so not sure of main restaurant atmosphere but seemed busy and lively. Dinner of corn chowder and bone in rib eye along with Alaskan king crab was excellent. Bone in rib eye was massive and excellent flavour. Expensive but very good quality. Will try for couples dinner before I leave... More

My son, 9 year old grand daughter and I wanted a great seafood dinner to celebrate my birthday and we found the perfect spot while I was visiting in Austin. Eddie V's at the Arboretum "hit it out of the park" as my son said while finishing our meal. We all shared the appetizer of Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and... More

The service at Eddie V's is amazing. They really spoil you. The two time's I've been there, all the dishes were great. The calamari appetizer is incredible. Of course, they are known for their seafood and steaks, and those were great, too, And the portions are huge.

Eddy V's is very good but sometimes not great. Seafood always fresh but have had steaks that weren't choice. Great sides and good service. Excellent cocktails and vibrant bar scene. I have been here several times and always enjoy Eddy V's.
