I've always enjoyed this restaurant but its gotten so expensive. Went there with clients; had happy hour appetizers and a couple of drinks and the bill was greater than >$160, and we left hungry. Used to be a fabulous plus to meet friends, to spendy for me, sorry guys will make another choice next time

We had 9:00 reservations for dinner and they were so busy on a Friday night that we had to wait about ten minutes before we were seated. Luckily one friend and I had already had some yummy appetizers and cocktails while waiting for the rest of the party. Our service was great, and even with a late seating, we never... More

Austin has a reputation as a "foodie" town. However, when it's the one time, you have to have the preparation, the food, the service and the atmosphere just right! When it's that one time you must make the right call, this is the place. No one meets this level of service, the perfect touches, the impeccable service, is not seen... More

So glad we booked this as a treat during our weekend attending COTA. We arrived on a busy Saturday evening. We were seated immediately. Our server arrived promptly and we ordered our cocktails. We had two of the evening's specials -- a seafood trio and a snapper dish. Prepared expertly and deliciously. For sides -- the corn is out of... More

We went to Eddie V's on 5th Street because of the reviews on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed. I normally avoid "chain restaurants" when visiting a new city but I'd never been to an Eddie V's. The service was superb, and the food was delicious. I had the filet medallions with crabmeat and asparagus, and the steak melted in... More

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.
