Eddie V's - Chicago Ratings and Reviews

We were looking for good seafood, Eddie V's certainly delivered. We decided to start with Salads, these were very generous portions, fresh tasting and beautifully presented. The Entree, I had Snapper and prawn, it was cooked to perfection and the sauce enhanced it perfectly. My sister ordered Swordfish and stated it was the best she had tasted. We did not try dessert, were totally satisfied and wanted to continue to savor the flavorful memories.
Our server was attentive and honored our request to move through the meal slowly as my sister had just arrived from a long international flight and needed to decompress.
The atmosphere was relaxed and intimate, perfect for our reunion.

Eddie V's is a top notch seafood restaurant which seldom disappoints. The crab cake appetizer,wild mushroom salad and the scallop and shrimp entrees were terrific. We were a bit disappointed by the slow service. There appeared to be a slight problem with the management of the service team. Nevertheless, the dinner was quite enjoyable.

Great service, with a jazzy atmosphere made this a very enjoyable meal experience.
Oysters were fresh and tasty, halibut was very good and I went with a filet which was good not great. Loved the has trio playing in the lounge. All servers were exceptional
Would go again
Where do I start to describe our dinner ...
Where do I start to describe our dinner at Eddie V's? Our first round of drinks took over 20 minutes to be served. Salads, after ordering were not at the table within 30 minutes and the kitchen took it upon itself to substitute bibb lettuce for romaine (which they ran out of) without notifying the customer. We asked to see a manager, they arrived 28 minutes after we asked to see them. The bar tried to substitute a wine to my dinner guest because they ran out of the wine he asked for. Instead of asking the customer what they wanted instead, the bar sent something they thought he would like. The entrees were just average. The entire dining room had the same look on their faces as we did all night, "Where is our food? What is going on with this restaurant?"
There are too many significantly better options in Chicago than to ever go to Eddie V's.
When I posted this review to my restaurant review website, over a dozen subscribers sent me feedback saying they'd had similar experiences at this restaurant recently. Very telling.

Eddie V's provided an attractive and warm setting for a business dinner. Our server was exceptional; she was bright, attentive and pleasant. Our dinners were excellent, except for the one steak (filet) was cold when it got to the table. The server offered to have it warmed, and she also gave us a complimentary dessert. The jazz trio in the lounge was smooth and not intrusive. I'll definitely be back.

You will not be disappointed. We surely have never been. Whenever we are in Chicago, Eddie's is must top. Service from top to bottom is great. Food is even better. Want a nice, elegant meal... Dining room. Looking for some great food and great music.... Grab a barstool. Cheers!

Steaks are good. Up to what you would expect for price, location and Midwestern steak house. Service is top notch. Seafood cold and fresh. But the two fish dishes ordered were not worth the effort. Sole is tasteless, sticky coating. Shrimp is a matter of taste. If sauce and loaded like a bake potato is your thing than maybe... Back to the wait staff. Truly A+. Food arrived at a nice pace. No rushing. No wondering what happened to our order. We would recommend but with several caveats.

First time in Chicago, read reviews and tried Eddie V. Enjoyed everything, waiter was attentive, and knowledgable. Food was cooked and served to perfection. My wifes Chealen Sea Bass was white, fluffy, and perfect!
A little expensive but worth it.

Amazing steaks and sides and great service. Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and have been telling everyone. We came here as it was close to the conference we were attending and it surpassed all expectations. Hoping to return next time I'm in Chicago.

Everything was outstanding! Definitely made my husband's birthday very special and they even had a signed birthday card waiting for him at our table. Such a sweet gesture. I have already referred Eddie Vs to my friends. We will definitely return:)

The shellfish tower was incredible. And all I said on the reservation was that it was my girlfriend's birthday and they had a table with a rose and birthday card right by the small jazz band stage for us. The drinks and the service were also amazing.

Outstanding from beginning to end. Lobster tacos appetizer, oysters, swordfish were delicious. Thomas Linsk trio in bar added nice musical backdrop to a romantic evening with my wife. Great service from our waiter, Frank. Memorable.

We had an excellent meal here having a delicious Beet Salad, Scallops, and Salmon. All of our food was exquisitely done and extremely fresh, and delicious. Our waitress, Andrea, was helpful and very friendly. I had shown her a picture we had just taken of him, his daughter and his 7 week old grandson whom we had gone to Chicago to visit. Andrea surprised us with a flaming Bananas Foster which had Congratulations written in chocolate on the dish.
This was decidedly a grand experience.

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.

Our experience on Sunday June 6, 2016 at Eddie V's was amazing. The atmosphere, food, service and ambiance were all TOP NOTCH. I can't say enough positive things about the entire experience. The Australian Lobster was the best I have ever had. The Sea Bass was excellent. The Banana's Foster was sinful. It was a pleasure to dine there. The waiter as well as the wait staff were very attentive. Just an amazing experience.

5 star date night! Amazing date night! We sat in the lounge and had a fantastic waiter named ELroy- attentive, made great suggestions, and he was great at his job! Amazing food (crab tacos for appetizers, steak and lobster-done to perfection-champagne and wonderful red wine!) . We purposely chose the lounge to hear the live jazz music. It was so worth it and we can't wait to go back! We have plans to come back with friends for two different occasions! Thanks again EddieV's!!!! 5 Stars all the way!

Ordered special of the day, steak, med rare, but made the mistake of not asking for the price. The steak was cooked med well and the plate was $40 more than any of the entrees on the regular menu. Felt cheated, and definitely disappointed in the food. My guest also ordered the special, but asked to have hers re-cooked when it came out overdone. Her meal arrived as the rest of us were finishing, and no compensation was made on her bill. I'd overlook that at a casual dining place, but not when you're paying $76 for a steak. Not going back.
