Eddie V's - La Jolla
Great place!Eddie V's made us feel like we were on vacation even though we only live 15 minutes away. Our server Max was amazing. We ordered the seafood tower, wine and the rib eye with some sides. Everything was great. The bar scene is happening and the view is just amazing. Can't wait to go back!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Eatery with a ViewWe frequent Eddie V's as it offers a prime location with a view of LaJolla cove and beautiful sunsets, has great food and service, an outstanding wine list and a lounge upstairs with another exquisite view, outdoor opportunities and great entertainment. I proposed to my girlfriend there - it was that special - and we love it.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday/date night with wifeTook my wife out for her birthday on a Sunday night. He had reservations and showed up on time. The host seated us promptly and also wished my wife a Happy Birthday. We were well taken care of by Roxanne. Wife had the crab chowder which was excellent and the filet mignon. I had the scallops and the recoomended crab fried rice. We finished off with the banana foster. Everything was excellent and so was the service by Roxanne. A nice little touch was the birthday card signed by the restaurant staff. Forgot the nice ocean view.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy with friendlyI love Eddie V's. It's an elegant venue with a fabulous view and it has great food (the best crab cake). In addition to the wonderful menu and food, the staff are friendly and provide excellent service. I've been there several times an have never been disappointed.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service!We went to Eddie V.'s for my fiance's birthday. The overall service from everyone on the staff was amazing, among the best I've ever experienced.
For dinner, we had the seared ahi and filet. Both were very good. For dessert, we went with the Bananas Foster and the Godiva chocolate cake. Both were great! The decor of the place is perfect for the location, elegant, but with a beachy vibe. As for the noise level, folks were having a good time, but the set up of the place made it easy to talk and enjoy ourselves without having to raise our voices.
In short, GREAT service, really good food, great desserts, nice people, and a view that's hard to beat. We'll be back.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice surpriseWe really enjoyed our first dining experience. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The menu offered a variety of items to suit every taste. The setting was a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. There was spacious room between tables to allow for intimate dining. Delicous food, beautiful view and great service!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful lunch experienceVery nice and relaxing restaurant. View was spectacular. Food was very good and the presentation was beautiful. The Calamari was an excellent recommendation by our server. I did have to ask for a refill of my water glass a couple of times but other than that the service was very good. Would definitely go back and take my family when they come to visit.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was exceptionalThe service was exceptional and the view was outstanding. My wife had the filet mignon and I had the scallops. The filet was delicious, however my scallops were a bit undercooked for my taste. The calamari appetizer was uniquely prepared and delicious. This is a definite must try dining location.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bestAlways a home run. Every time the service is beyond amazing!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!Eddie V's never disappoints. Fabulous food and great service.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great drinks,Great food, great drinks, great service, and a nice big ocean view. There was nothing negative about it for me. It is more expensive than your typical restaurant but you get what you pay for.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing birthday dinnerMy brought my boyfriend here in celebration of his birthday. The staff was amazing. Upon checkin, they immediately wished him a happy birthday. When they sat us at our window-side with an amazing view table, they presented him with a birthday card.
Our waiter was super attentive and helpful when it came to choosing wine and our apetizer and meal. It was both of our first time here, definitely coming back. I think next time I would like to dine closer to the lounge where I can hear the jazz playing. The food was very good, portions were nice, not big and heavy. My boyfriend is a foodie and he loved the food. It was all a very good experience :)5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Dinner with FriendsThis was our second trip to Eddie V's. We met up with 4 of our friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were seated quickly and ordered our appetizer (calamari). We enjoyed the spicy taste and moved on to our soups (Lobster Bisque) which tasted great! Our main dishes consisted of Alaskan Halibut, Chilean Sea Bass, Swordfish, Jumbo Shrimps, and Bay Scallops. The food was excellent all around. We also had sides of mushroom rice, steamed asparagus, and sweet corn. Finally, we all chose Bananas Foster for dessert. Now that really topped it off for all of us! We truly enjoyed our evening, but it was not as good as our first visit. The waiter did ok, but Marc (our first visit waiter) definitely was much better in every way!!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA beauty!Amazing views--one of the best in southern California--and excellent food!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerOur anniversary dinner was wonderful. Bananas foster desert was the highlight of the evening. The greeting card,rose petals
and complimentary desert was fabulous. Service was prompt and exceptional.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic DinnerMy family was in town over Memorial Day weekend and they wanted to have dinner someplace with a great view. I picked Eddie V's and was a bit nervous because I hadn't eaten there before. My very picky older brother said it was the best halibut he had ever tasted and everyone else raved about their dishes as well.
At the end of our dinner, the manager Kristoff (sp?) came over to introduce himself and ask about our experience at their establishment. We all gave him fantastic reviews about the service, view & food. He then sent out six desserts for the table to share, WHAT A TREAT!
Thank you Eddie V's, we will be back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat AnniversaryMy husband and I went there for our anniversary. I had told the restaurant it was our anniversary and they decorated our table and left a card from the staff. It was a really nice touch. My husband said the lobster was outstanding. My steak was good. The Bananas Foster was a bit different so I was glad we ordered it. You can get chocolate cake anywhere. The real winner here was the view. We live ten minutes from the restaurant and still were mesmerized with the view. It was a vert romantic dinner! It was pricey. We spent around $300 but worth every penny on this special occasion.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining at Eddie V'sGreat food. Great service. Great ambiance. Scenic views of La Jolla cove and bay, especially from upper level patio/balcony and bar. Live jazz in bar. Perfect place for first date, special occasion, or any great dining experience.

The view, even on an overcast evening, was spectacular. The service was attentive, but the waitress, who was otherwise delightful, could use some additional training on wine service. Overall, this was a very good restaurant that I would definitely try again and recommend to others.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMScenic ViewVery good food. Great service. Scenic view over the La Jolla Caves.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Perfect LightingMake sure you have some reservations for this place!! The early fog made the setting almost as enchanting. We pleasantly came to find that not only was their food amazing, but their highly professional and courteous staff was far above average. The place had dim lighting almost as if to know that we were to be there to fall deeper in love with each other and the mood had to be just right. We arrived slightly early, but almost instantly seated. The vibrant sounds of smooth jazz echoed in our ears with a live band while we sat at the bar for a few minutes as they prepared for us. Although a seafood place, the steaks they made were superb and our waiter was intelligent and charming. It was a smart choice, we will be going back again soon!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!This restaurant was simply amazing! The views from the outside dining area were spectacular!

Happy Anniversary card and rose petals on the table. Our waiter greeted us with two glasses of champagne. ! We started with the Calamari that had great presentation and taste! Then on to their Lobster Bisque. My wife opted for their Pan Seared Scallops that were perfectly cooked. I chose their Halibut that was very tasty along with the sauce. Finally, Eddie V's staff surprised us with Banana Foster with rum butter cake/butter pecan ice cream. On the plate they wrote "20 20 20 20 Amazing" in chocolate syrup. The dessert tasted great just as the rest of the meal. I cannot say enough about our extraordinary evening!! Eddie V's definitely earned 5 stars!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome birthday dinnerWent there to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. I asked for a ocean side window and they did good on that request.

Five people ordered five different appetizers and entrees and all were thrilled with the quality and taste of the each dish. Our waiter was superb; he knew 100% of the details of each dish and made our choices extremely tough. Not only was he articulate, but very knowledgeable of the food he was serving. That makes a huge difference to diners when choosing from a menu. He was spot on and our evening was really a ten plus. Eddie V's is a "go to" restaurant in San Diego for us.
Two birthdays were celebrated and the desserts presented for our table were superb. Bananas Foster ignited at the table was "melt in your mouth" delicious and one of the best desserts we have ever had anywhere!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic views and FantasticFantastic views and Fantastic food!

The upstairs terrace can't be beat for daytime dining.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly good for a restaurantSurprisingly good for a restaurant with a great view in a touristy place like LA Jolla. We had a wonderful, very professional waiter that was attentive yet not intrusive. His suggestions were spot on. A few minor slips kept the food rating from being higher. TOO MUCH hot chile oil spoiled a beautiful tuna tartare and the wine list needs more lower priced options. The scallops were first rate and and the sides were well presented.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMfantastic anniversaryamazing experience! thanks to all of the eddies v personal!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding menu and serviceWaiter Paul was outstanding and made our experience even better

It was a first time visit on a friend's recommendation for an anniversary date. Good wine list, the sole was the best I have had, and the bananas foster was a very good end to the meal. Everything was so good I really over ate. The real reason for the review however is the outstanding service we received.

VIP treatment that was so genuine is the thing that most made the night so memorable.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA New Favorite in TownThis was a birthday dinner celebration.
