Went for a nice meal and was very disappointed - everything was drowned in seasoning in a fashion that can only be described as masking lower quality base ingredient and subpar cooking. Service and atmosphere were good and the service were good is the only reason I give it a 3.

This is our favorite place for a romantic evening, Mother's Day or graduation! Every time we visit Austin, we reserve an evening at Eddie V's! The service is impeccable and friendly - tending to all of our needs. The food competes with the best whether it is their special seafood catch of delicious steak. Don't forget to make a reservation!

The food is delicious and dependable. The service is very good but not rushed. This restaurant has a nice atmosphere but it can be very busy and so sometimes a bit noisy.

Read the great reviews about this place, so I decided to try it out for myself, and I was not disappointed! The restaurant itself is very nice and the staff is very attentive and nice. It is a bit too dim for my taste, but it does make for a nice romantic dinner. As an appetizer I had the oysters,... More
