We had a great time celebrating my daughter's bday. Food, service and drinks were outstanding. The price was reasonable in comparison to similar restaurants.

I had the oysters and they were delicious and served with a variety of condiments. My shrimp and crab was done perfectly. Even the background music was pleasant.

Stopped by for dinner on a Sunday. The atmosphere of the restaurant is neat with live music and low lighting with candles. We started dinner with the lobster tacos. Delicious! For dinner I had the Chilean Sea bass and my fiancé ordered the steak. Can’t...go wrong either way. They were both cooked beautifully and had great flavor. We shared two sides, the truffle Mac and cheese and the au gratin potatoes. It was a lot of food for two people but they were both delicious! The Mac and cheese was our favorite of the evening. We had a wonderful time and will be back.More

One of the best steak dinners we've ever had, and totally worth the price. The oysters were fresh and delicious. Eddie V's steaks rival the country's best houses. Chef Elizabeth Cericola has created dishes that are beyond the imagination and amazing. The truffle mac and...cheese is truly incredible. Plan on taking your time to enjoy their cocktails or wine, and be wowed by all the selections of delicacies. The obviously well trained servers will make your experience a memorable one!More

Excellent food, menu selection, and service as well. Only downside is despite the price, which is $$$$, sides were not included with most entrees. For the price, they should have been. Knowing this now, I would still return here on special occasions.

I had a crab cake and lobster bisque. The crab was excellent but the bisque only so-so; not much flavor and only one little piece of lobster for $16. Service was excellent!

My co-workers and I had a dinner date that we have at least once during the year. This year, we happened to find a date that fell during restaurant week. The meal was to also celebrate a retirement. The retiree picked Eddie V's. Back story,...I frequented Eddie V's often for years, they had an awesome Happy Hour Menu. I was hesitant to attend this time because I vowed about 2-3 years back to never spend my money there again and I hadn't. I had a few bad experiences and decided to finally mentioning how the service and food was declining to the (then) manager. He was absolutely dismissive and unconcerned and pretty much acknowledged that my few dollars spent there wouldn't be missed. How could any issues be addressed if the manager of the establishment had no concern. THIS Experience was nothing close. The Manager, BLAKEY stopped by the table to greet us and asked if we were celebrating anything special to which we informed him of how we have a dinner together and we had a recent retiree at the table. He also asked if we had dined there before and I brought up the experience. Mr. Blakey made up for the past experience and he had us all feeling like appreciated customers. We all promised that we would be back. I believe that he attempted to acknowledge my feelings of bad service from the past and remind me that Eddie V's was still that place that I once enjoyed. None of my tablemates had been there before that night but he made a huge impression and gained three future customers. I can't leave out Zak Elyaman who was attentive to all of our needs and just an exceptional server overall. Thank you both, not just for the great meal but for the experience.More

As part of my visit to Chicago for my conference, I decided to hit up Eddie V's, I had been at the one in Orlando, FL but decided to check this one out. It was a great experience. The ambience is great, they have live...music every night, so it has a nice jazz/nightclub feel to it without anything too overwhelming. I started out with the Jumbo lump crab cake, which was absolutely delicious, worth every bite. Then I had their lobster bisque, it was good, not the best or top-3 but still quite good. I then moved onto the 12-oz filet, which was absolutely tender and cut like butter and had an amazing taste. I decided to indulge a bit and get the butter poached lobster mashed potatoes, wow! Sinfully awesome! The service was good as you would expect and overall, had a great meal at a great restaurant. My fond memories from Orlando were confirmed in Chicago and they seem to know how to bring consistency from site to site. Well done! I will be back.More
