    Eddie V's came highly recommended from a neighbor of mine.....she was raving about it so I had to try it....needless to say, we weren't disappointed! We've really missed having that view from the old Chart House and the food and service at Eddie V's made up for the long awaited return of a great restaurant! The crab cake was amazing! Lots of crab, light, flavorful and came with a great sauce on the side...the scallops were moist and tender....the filet with asparagus, crab and hollandaise was cooked to perfection and the twice baked potatoes were so tasty and creamy....sorry I didn't have room for dessert! Next time I want to try the Bananas Foster!! Thank you Eddie V's for a wonderful meal!!

    Everything about the evening was perfect until I went to the bar to watch a college football game. I was there for 20 minutes, cheered one time at the end of the game, and then was reprimanded by the bartender for being too loud in a restaurant....ridiculous.....my wife and friends who were at a table just on the other side of the bar could not even hear me. My exact words were "touchdown, Irish". Bartender needs to lighten up.

    This is a "no brainer".... Eddie V's has a spectacular view and can be on the casual "yet dressy" side, and is a fine dining experience. Wine list is top notch and the servers really are educated to help the diner make the right selection. Highly recommend.

    My wife and I celebrated our weeding anniversary at Eddie V's on Saturday night. It was a perfect dining experience from start to finish! The view is breathtaking and the service was exceptional. I had the scallops and my wife had the lobster. Both were cooked perfectly... You must try the Bananas Foster for desert. It is the best I have ever had... We will be back!!

    Eddie V's is a breath of fresh ocean air, don't get me wrong there's a lot of nice places to eat in La Jolla but this place is great for the face lift La Jolla needs. The atmospher is lively and the staff is great, very accommodating. My wife and I have been to Eddie V's 5 times thus far and we've had different things of the menu every time and each one of those meals have been spot on. If your looking for palace to hang out with friends or a romantic dinner for two Eddie V's will not disappoint. O yeah one more thing, for desert you have to try their bananas foster on butter cake...AMAZING !!!

    Even though they were very busy on a Wednesday night, the food and service were excellent. The steamed Chilean Sea Bass was particularly superb. Eddie V's definitely beats the competition in the overall dining experience, including ambiance, well-prepared food, as well as excellent service.

    This restaurant would get more than 5 stars if there was such a rating! I took my wife there for her birthday. I called ahead to arrange for flower delivery. They handled it perfectly, had the table all ready, were attentive however not pushy, and the service throughout was fantastic. The food was absolutely perfect, fresh, and served exactly as ordered. Oh, and the desert....oh my sinfully delicious!! You owe it to yourself to put this restaurant on you bucket list...and then on your regular list of places to go in the San Diego/La Jolla area!!

    We went there to celebrate my mom's birthday, a party of 6. Angela was our server. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. The food recommendations were on point. I had the chilean sea bass and man it was delicious! The bananas foster dessert was mouthwateringly good, too. There was also a jazz pianist/vocalist. We danced for a bit (even though there was no one else on the dance floor) as it complemented the relaxed, elegant, and friendly atmosphere.

    Eddie V's delivered yet another fabulous evening. I took a client to dinner, had a drink at the bar while the restaurant decanted a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon that I brought. Stewart (bartender) was his usual gracious and engaging self, Christophe Cavasco welcomed us and checked on us later to be sure everything was perfect. The food was fantastic, the view was ideal, the service was perfectly paced. This is by far the best restaurant in La Jolla.

    Going out to dinner, especially if it's a special occasion, should be a dinning experience not just going to eat. The experience or going to Eddie V's started and ended perfectly. From confirming our reservation all the way through our dinning, to the follow-up to make sure we enjoyed ourselves, it was perfect. As a person who consults in the service industry it was refreshing to see an organization that's doing it right.

I had a friend visiting from out of state, and this was one of the restaurants I wanted to take her to visit. We went for lunch on a Saturday. It was not busy. We had a lovely table with an excellent view of the cove. The food and service were wonderful as usual. It added to a wonderful La Jolla day.

    I admit I've never heard of, let alone tried, Halibut cheek. One of the best things I've ever tasted. And when combined with their crab fried rice, it is truly phenomenal. Loved it, and had a wonderful meal with five people. My only complaint is when I called to let them know that we were fighting traffic and although our reservation was at 6:30 we wouldn't be able to get there until 6:50, I was told they would "try" to hold my reservation. Meaning?

The service was good, the waitress is very nice However, till the end, when we finished our dinner, and were ready for dessert and coffee The waitress cleaned our table. Then she turned her attention to the new customer on an adjacent table We had been waiting on our empty table for over 15 minutes before she turned her head to our table and brought us the dessert menu At that time, we lost mood for anything else; except to leave

    Four of us just happened to have an outside upstairs reservation overlooking the ocean just in time for a sudden storm to come in. The wind blew, the thunder and rain came and quickly we became the only guests up there. The staff came out and rolled down the clear plastic cover to protect us and we all enjoyed a delicious dinner. Our server, Max made the night. We laughed and joked and had a great time and Max surprised us with an amazing Bananas Foster dessert. This night was truly awesome and a highlight of the trip!
