I have never been disappointed at either of the Eddie V's in Austin. Each has their own personality, but the food is superb and in my opinion, their Happy Hour is one of the best in Austin. The bartenders very personable and the food is delicious! And there may be live music...what more could you ask for? Excellent table service... More

Eddy V's was good but the restaurant is getting a little tired and could use a face lift! My wife and I had the Miso Marinated Tofu and loved it!

It takes alot to impress me when it comes to steak, but the Tomahawk Ribeye is phenomenal! Dry aged prime bone in and perfectly cooked. Paired it up with a nice red zinfandel and boom! Happiness. Its big though, so expect that Im stuffed feeling. Service was fantastic as always. Best steak in Austin

Theses people definitely know how to treat Seafood. This is fresh Seafood at its best. Delicately prepared Shrimp and Dover Sole if they have it. You cannot go wrong here. Expensive but quite worth it. Also do not miss Eddie V out in Arboretum area. The Steaks at that location are beyond all expectations.

Happy hour at Eddie V's can't be beat. Drinks and appetizers are exceptional, at a great price. People are very friendly, even when it gets crowded. The dining room feels cozy and intimate, like a supper club. But it's also modern and spacious. It offers THE best dining experience for any special night out. In the bar and in the... More

My wife and my favorite restaurant in Austin, with a preference for the downtown location. Great atmosphere, even better food and a top wine list. I always took my top clients here and have never been disappointed. If you go to no other restaurant in Austin, go to Eddie V's.

We went here because we were looking for some good fish, and it was better than we expected. The server was awesome, so nice and attentive. The food was insane, way too good! I had lobster tails, they were huge and very fresh. Highly recommend!

Seriously fabulous food...expensive but worth it. We save Eddie V's for special occasions. If you're a tourist and willing to spend some money on one of your dinners, Eddie V's will not disappoint. Check out their menu for seafood as well as steaks. Their cocktails are ridiculously delicious, too. Valet parking is also offered, a boon since downtown parking can... More
