Eddie V’s Prime Seafood Restaurant Review: This downtown destination reels in guests seeking polished service, fresh upscale fare and top-notch entertainment. Many prefer to dine in the lounge to catch the live jazz and take in the hopping bar scene while tucked away in a cozy corner table or high-back leather banquette. Serious seafood lovers should cut to the chase and start with the shellfish appetizer, a tower of Maine lobster, shrimp, oysters and jumbo lump crab. It's safe to say Eddie V's is not going for subtle on the seafood extravagance. Another case in point is the crab tray. Think dessert tray, but with beautifully displayed stone crab, king crab, Dungeness crab and whatever else is in season. If shellfish isn't your thing, opt for seared Pacific ahi with a green papaya salad or a savory halibut filet sautéed with sweet corn, morels and smoked pork shank. While there's an extensive wine-by-the-glass selection, you can't miss with Eddie's expertly shaken martini. We like to pop in on Sundays and Mondays when happy hour drink and appetizer specials are offered all night. Note that there's a second location at 9400 B Arboretum Blvd., 512-342-2642.
