From the moment we were greeted at valet I knew it was going to be a fun dining experience. Service was far better than any other place in Tampa and we've been to Berns, Ulele and Council Oaks. Not to say those restaurants are bad, they're not, Eddie V's just tops them. The food prepared perfectly and the right sized portions. Bananas Foster cake for dessert on them topped off the evening.

Eddie V's targeting market is the same as Oceans Prime and Capital Grille however is in our view the hands-down winner of all three. As part of the same holding company as Capital Grille some say Eddie V's is the place for seafood and Capital Grille is the place for steak although I'm not arguing this point we feel Eddie V's is the premier of the two.

Starting in the bar we enjoyed fantastic cocktails and light appetizers as part of their happy hour. Moving to our table we were greeted by our server who turned out to be one of the more proficient and knowledgeable servers we have had the pleasure of experiencing in a very long time. When questioned about specifics of the fish and shellfish available on the menu he was able to quote species of oysters, and was able to accommodate several special requests made by the four of us. Now we realize this is also part and parcel to the kitchens graciousness but we felt that no reasonable request would be of issue.

Amongst the four of us we ordered Fried Oysters, Tuna Ceviche, Crab Stuffed Prawns, and a myriad of sides including my favorite the crab fried rice. The fact that we had no room for dessert did not stand in the way of us ordering several selections all of which were scrumptious.

Eddie V's atmosphere is styled after the supper clubs of the Northeast including live jazz after seven. We highly recommend this upscale seafood restaurant to any discerning diner when visiting the Tampa area.

Had a business dinner at Eddie V's restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food and service. The only con is that the fish was slightly dry.

Eddie V's is Tampa's best fine dining restaurant. Prime steaks cooked to perfection, fresh and creative seafood along with delectable desserts are presented by attentive servers who will do their best to exceed your expectations. Excellent atmosphere for couples and business dinners.

We went here during a few nights staying in Tampa and we were really impressed! Our waiter was extremely helpful and the food was really great. Although you might find the menu a bit intimidating, it is actually quite versatile and you don't have to order from every section. It is on the pricier side- but definitely worth it.
