The Zagat Review
Some of the city’s "freshest catch" lands at this "vibrant" , "upscale" chain link in River North, serving seafood "that delivers on all levels" and "equally good" steaks in a "beautiful" "plush" space with live jazz in the cocktail lounge; an "outstanding" staff, including bartenders who "are willing to experiment" , rounds out its assets.

Zagat Mentions of Eddie V's Prime Seafood

I know how important google reviews are and that's why I still went 5 stars after a small disappointment to the start of the night. We arrived at 7:20 for a 7:30 reservation and when I went up at 7:40 to see what was going on, I was told I was the 3rd 7:30 in line. My frustration lands on, please inform me at 7:20 that there will be a delay and that I should head to the bar for a drink. Instead we watch more groups of 2 (than 3) get seated before us, who came in well after us. At 7:56 we were seated and the rest of the night was great. Our server was really nice, personable and really navigated us well through the menu. His first recommendation was the lobster tacos. I read a below review that said they have no flavor. That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read that wasn't a Trump tweet. It was by far one of the most flavorful items I've ever had in my life. I proceeded to love my Chilean Sea bas and the bananas foster. My smoked old fashion was incredibly well done and the evening ended completely different than it started.

We were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The restaurant is modern and classy. They had a live band playing some 70’s music and they were good. The service was awesome thanks to Eleroy who was very attentive to our needs and who made us feel special. We all 5 had seafood and we all were very pleased. The food was very good and was served hot. To top off our experience our dessert was a flaming surprise. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening. I highly recommend this place.

I really enjoy Eddie V's in many aspects. First I love just hanging out at the bar. It's beautiful & typically quiet yet vibrant. Live jazz in the evenings makes the space even better. Great drinks, awesome bar staff. Dinner service is also great. I don't want to really spill this tea BUT they have one of the best desserts I have ever had in my life & I literally travel to eat. It's the bananas foster buttercake & it's out of this world. You don't even have to like bananas it's just ridiculous. It's a special treat we will go out of our way for and also take every Chicago visitor we have to experience it. The seafood is excellent quality & sides are really delicious. A great place all around.
