Menu did not specify twice baked potatoes had cheese nor that salmon would be cooked medium rare. When salmon was sent back and asked to be cooked through it was then barely medium rare. Berries for dessert were plentiful but not sweet.

Problems with seating our party, they were very confused and moved us twice. Also, I'd called ahead to specify they had a certain cocktail ingredient. They assured me they did. When I ordered the cocktail, I was told " oh, we no longer have that". Very amateur service for a very expensive dinner.

My husband and I took our 16 year old and 14 year old to celebrate fabulous report cards and a hard working school year. We requested seating in the lounge so we could hear the music. We were not happy with our first seat. The hostess was very accommodating, and found us a perfect table that better fit our preference. Our waiter (Josh/Joshua) was EXCELLENT. Three of us ordered steaks, and my son had the scallops. We also had appetizers and desserts. The food was excellent.....prepared to perfection!!! Would definitely recommend and go back again!

I've always enjoyed Eddie Vs. The food is great, the drinks are delicious, and the service is amazing. My prime issue was the time it took for us to be seated. We came for my father's birthday, setting an 8:15 reservation. We weren't seated until 915, which we thought was beyond ridiculous. We weren't even compensated for our wait.

In town for the America's Cup Sailing Regatta
We came to Chicago the sailing races and wanted a superior steak and seafood restaurant in walking distance of our hotel. Eddie V's was right next door to the Chicago Marriott downtown where we were staying. It did not disappoint. For appetizers we had oysters on the half shell from Washington- very good, and the steak tartare and chilled lobster - outstanding. For the entrée we both had the 8 oz filet mignon "Oscar style". The filet was one of the best we've ever had - cooked to perfection served with asparagus, Jonah crab and hollandaise. They have a significant wine list with a wide variety and price range. Service was excellent. It is not a cheap restaurant but the overall experience justified the prices. We will put it on our list of favorites in Chicago for a special night out.

Eddie V's used to be my choice for date night. I love the food and atmosphere. I invited my boss, the president of our co, and a colleague to dinner here to show it off. Sadly, the service was awful. Our server disappeared for long periods of time, which stretched out our dinner so much that we had no interest in dessert. We weren't even asked for 2nd drinks. The pres of my co had asked someone -not our absent server-for a glass of wine and didn't get it until he was near completion of his entree. Extremely disappointing and very embarrassing to me.

Calimari was awesome COD and sea bass were also delicious
We met with another couple for dinner. The place is very nice. Good trio playing in the bar, good music not too loud, just nice. Our waiter Martin was very attentive, talkative and helpful, great service. I had a steak (filet) and it was delicious. My wife had the Sea Bass and it was a nice piece of fish, fresh, meaty, flaky, all the things you want but very bland, too bad. Brussels sprouts were great and so were the Au Gratin potatoes. Dessert was good, nothing fancy but good. Overall it's a nice place with great ambiance and good food!

Dinner in Chicago
We had visited Eddie V's once before and enjoyed it so we decided to return for my husband's birthday dinner. The server was excellent and very attentive. The wine list quite extensive and varied. The cod and swordfish were well prepared. We definitely enjoyed our dinner there.
What a great place. Entree's were fantastic, server was super friendly, music and ambiance were perfect, and the banana's foster was one of the best things I've ever eaten.

Great food as usual. Make sure you try the fried rice as a side and the Banana's Foster for desert. We frequent Eddie V's. However, on this occasion we had a problem being seated appropriately. We arrived at the beginning of regular dinner service and the dining room only had 2 other guest at the time. Yet, they sat us by the entrance to the kitchen which was very loud. When we asked to move over one both, we were given a hard time. It took 10 minutes and wait staff intervention to be seated one booth over in an empty dining room. Wait staff was excellent - hostess made me think twice about returning.
Can't recommend because the service was so bad!
Our waiter kept appearing and disappearing randomly, promising to bring us water "I'll be right back with your waters", promising to tell us about the specials "I'll be right back to tell you about the specials", promising to take our drink order "I'll be right back to take your drink orders." Finally 45 minutes later I cornered him, insisted he tell us the specials then-and-there, and then insisted that he take our order then-and-there. After our wine finally appeared and we had eaten our appetizer, I accidentally spilled a glass of wine on the table. The waiter was at the table next to us and there is no way he could have not seen it happen, but he disappeared before I could get his attention. Luckily a wonderful bus girl was walking by, saw what happened, changed the table cloth, wiped everything down, was pleasant and quick about it... I nearly tipped her more than we tipped the waiter. Man who seated us was also similarly nice and attentive. We wish he had been a waiter instead of a host. Food itself was outstanding when it was finally ordered and arrived. Calling the music "jazz" was stretching it, but it was nicely done. It was a lot of money for bad service, so we won't be coming back. And it's a shame because there are not a lot of good food/music venues in the area that play jazz (or at least jazz-like).

My husband and I had a wonderful meal. The staff was friendly and attentive, but not over the top. Our waiter recommended great wines that paired with the food perfectly. Our table was very close to the bar area so we were able to hear live music as we dined, the music and sound from the bar was noticeable but we were still able to converse with out having to raise our voices. The food was exceptional and we couldn't have been happier with our experience.

The first unpleasant thing i experienced was the greeting. They tried to seat us at the bar instead of at a table even though we had a reservation and the restaurant was half empty. The food was good but did not leave me wowed for the price. I however thought the portion sizes we sufficient bucking the trend. The highlight was the Banana Fosters over Butter cake. That made up for the other shortcomings. The waiter was very professional.

Fabulous seafood and atmosphere! Truly memorable.
One of the best seafood/fish houses in Chicago
I consider myself a fresh fish connoisseur and Eddie V's meets and exceeds my standards for outstanding dining on fresh fish meals. Upscale but not too expensive for normal business meals. Waiters very well trained and attentive.
