Dined at Eddie Vs on the weekend and everything worked out just fine. However, I was a little concerned as I had been golfing with my regular group at Silverleaf earlier in the day and one of them had dinner there recently and said that while the food was quite good, the service left a lot to be desired. He said, to top it off, the waiter had a day job in the investment business and tried to interest them in his services. I've had that happen before but in establishments lower down the food chain...!

Eddie V's Prime Seafood is located in the Scottsdale Quater, an upscale shopping center with many walkable streets in buildings with zero set back architecture from the sidewalks. Valet parking is available and an indoor parking garage and on-street parking is also on site. There is a sister restaurant that operates as Wildfish Seafood Grille, near the Scottsdale Fashion Mall, with the same menu. As Eddie V's was closest to the hotel and thus it was selected.

When dining alone, I prefer to be seated in the dining room rather than "at the bar" as is often suggested by reception personnel as I don't like high top tables, prefer the views, architecture and atmosphere of the main dining room, and like the attention of multiple servers, white tablecloths, etc. A reservation was made to insure just such a table, but in this instance, the lounge area had table seating as well as a live jazz band that night and might have been the exception to my no "in the bar" rule. But in any event, the jazz could be enjoyed in the dining room also, just without the view of the musicians, who performed quite well.

The martini was very good but while the appetizer of crispy oysters were tasty and had an interesting presentation, they were of a cool temperature as opposed to being piping hot from the fryer. The lobster bisque, though topped with a portion of lobster meat, had a bland manufactured soup base taste. Some restaurants cook fish to medium, but I prefer a thoroughly cooked seafood so that there is no hint of translucence in the fish. I asked about the restaurant's standard of doneness and the waiter indicated that everything would be "cooked through". Truffle macaroni and cheese was the selected side dish. Unfortunately neither portions of the main course were exceptional with both being less than mediocre. The large portion size of grouper, had a crisp brown marks overall, a section that was not thoroughly cooked and there was a tough segment of connective tissue. The macaroni was bland and unmemorable with too many crumbs on top. Berries and cream along with coffee ended the dinner and while leaving with a wallet that was $100 lighter, the experience was not in keeping with what one would expect in a high end establishment. As there were many, many wait staff and assistants in the facility that evening and things were not crowded, the serving temperatures of items really should not have been an issue. The whole experience was not horrible, but it did not gain a degree of confidence to warrant it to be on the "absolutely must dine" list for future visits to Phoenix like another seafood restaurant that was passed up this time to dine at Eddie V's.

Some of the friendliest service we experienced in Scottsdale. Also, the food was great. We had shrimp cocktail, the corn/crab bisque, tuna, tilapia and the chopped salad. All were prepared very well and to our requests. Also, even though the restaurant was crowded it is not noisy. Since we were with friends it was great (as contrasted with too many places these days) to be able to converse without shouting. We would definitely go back.

Great shrimp cocktail! Sea bass prepared simply broiled was the best I've ever had! Great wine list too!

Maybe it was just our waiter who put us off a bit, but there is something pretentious when the waiters are dressed out in NYC steakhouse livery and are overly solicitous about every detail of your dining experience. With that, 4 stars for quality of the meal and general ambience. Enjoyed well enough but would not return.
