Let's just start with AWESOME! From the moment I walked through the door I felt like I belonged at Eddie V's #EddieV's . The feeling I got was warm and inviting. The hostesses greeted me with a smile, and believe me, that's not always the case in sometimes pretentious Scottsdale. By the way, Eddie V's is anything but pretentious, that's why I felt right at home in the beautifully appointed dining room or bellied up to the high-class bar right from the start.
Alright, let me be serious, because Eddie V's is seriously a top-notch dining experience. The wait staff and management could not have been more impressive, attentive, and knowledgeable. Ask for Petros (my new best Greek friend) and he'll be your best friend with a smile and a handshake. Next, if your lucky enough to get Eric as your waiter, put the menu down and let him make the recommendations - all you'll have to do is sit back and enjoy!
If your asking, my recommendations are as follows: start with the crab-cakes (if you don't like crab and lots of it, don't order these babies), they're packed with crab and will not disappoint. If you're still a little curious, have the lobster tacos and prepare to be amazed with a flavor explosion! Next, try the warm goat cheese salad, sip a little wine, and prepare yourself for pure dining ecstasy - and yes, I mean it!
Time for the main course - I ordered two entrees (because that's what I do) at the suggestion of Eric. First, I enjoyed a filet cooked to perfection and with more flavor than your mouth can handle #wonderfulfood. This baby was topped with two colossal grilled shrimp, also cooked to mouth-watering perfection! Still hungry, and I definitely was, I had the Chilean Sea Bass. OMG! this cut of fish was truly melt-in-your-mouth great! It literally melted in my mouth, no kidding. It was served steamed Hong Kong style in a light soy broth and I simply could not get enough of the thing (by the way, Chilean Sea Bass is also know as Patgagonian Toothfish, just in case you find yourself on Jeopardy under the "Fish Of The World" category). You're a winner with the Chilean Sea Bass. . .
Finally, if that weren't enough, it was time for dessert - yes, more flavorful greatness. While there were many selections from which to chose, and believe me I thought long and hard about the Bananas Foster Butter Cake (flambeed table-side with butter pecan ice cream), but in the end I opted for the Fresh Seasonal Berries. And, as you may have expected, it was fabulous! Such a simple dessert but oh so wonderful (I'm certain it was the fresh whipped cream that put this little dish over the top)!
In conclusion: I frequent the restaurants throughout the Scottsdale area, of which there are many to choose from, and I can say without a shred of doubt, Eddie V's is tops in Scottsdale! It is a total dining experience, from the professional staff, to the warm and comfortable dining room, to the absolutely exquisite food. Yes, it worth saying again, Eddie V's is a fantastic dining experience in Scottsdale and is highly recommended by Scottsdale Road #ScottsdaleRoad. Tell them Jake at Scottsdale Road sent you! I promise they'll take great care of you and your party from start to finish!
