    The first thing that struck me was the anniversary card and the rose petals. Beautiful. Will was a great waiter and very knowledgeable about the food and very attentive to our needs. The Filet Mignon and the Lobster was the best I have had. The sides we chose were also very good. Excellent dining experience. This was our first dining experience at this restaurant and we are looking forward to going back.

    ...actually visited concerning my allergy! However very nice waitress wrong about three dishes, and special appetizer came out with sauce (remoulade/aioli) that I cannot have and had to be removed untouched. Room too cold for my wife, AC tuned down after awhile but by dessert cold again. Filet mignon and sides were fine, scallops more interesting with citrus fruit presentation, nicely seared and tender. We went at an early time during winter, so dark we couldn't appreciate view. All in all nice but not special.

    From the moment we arrived we had a 5 star experience. The valet staff and hostess were friendly and courtesy. We had a reservation for 8, the table was out on the patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean with lights from La Jolla Shores flickering in the background. The music from the 2nd story patio was a great addition to the ambience. Max Diamond is an extraordinary waiter. His energy was infectious and he took excellent care of our table. Wine, cocktails and lobster tacos to start, followed by Chilean Sea Bass, Steak and Scallops perfectly timed and still warm. The wait staff worked quietly, we didn't even notice that they were there. We ended the night with the Bananas Foster, a dessert experience you should not miss. Simply Perfection!

    Went for dinner with my wife after flight from Atlanta. Good drinks, great crab/corn chowder and the ahi tuna and swordfish with crab were excellent. First rate unobtrusive service. This restaurant continues to improve and is now one of the best in San Diego in the class of George's and Nine-Ten

    Food was great as always and service was good. An only negative point at this time was: Although we didn't quite finish the dishes, your staff came to try to take away them. It was a bit "pushy".

    One thing we did not like is that we could not order happy hr drinks from our table we had to pay the full price. It had to be done at the bar area. After the hundreds of dollars we spent there. That was not nice at all.

    We went there on the night of the full moon...beautiful view as it rose over La Jolla's hills. The food was excellent...I had swordfish and my boyfriend had lobster. I'd go back for a special dinner or try their lounge for happy hour. One note: reservations don't get you a good table. The party before us didn't have reservations but they were seated at a window table and we were seated next to a wall by the kitchen despite my request for a window seat on my reservation.

    The ambiance and scenic view make this a great place to have a nice dinner/date night. The food ranged from amazing to blah. We loved the steak, sides and salads. The tuna tartare app was pretty bland, so I would not recommend that. The vegetable plate was HUGE! The waiter was new and thought this was more of a side dish, so we had also ordered a side of a different veggie. The server was kind enough to comp the side dish for not advising us about the huge portion of the vegetable dish. We left with tons of leftovers, but all in a all a very enjoyable dinner.

    This was the first time I have had a marginal meal at Eddie V's. The ribeye was tough and over-cooked and the veggies were also over-cooked. The service was very good as was the wine but I wish the food experience was better. I also had planned to meet my friend at the upstairs bar for a drink and listen to some music prior to dinning. Unfortunately, the upstairs was closed for a private party for the entire night-a Saturday.... would have been nice to know this.... I have been here probably 15 times in the last 3 years so I guess I will give them a pass......

    Made reservation 13 days in advance, but told when we arrived, none available. Saw other parties of 2 seated at windows after we arrived. Reservation requested quiet table. However noise level so energetic that it became horrendous at times. Could barely hear server at times. Do not understand how excellent food can be physically enjoyed under such noise conditions. Will not return.

    We've been here many times. The service is excellent. The food is delicious. They know their seafood. And steak. One of my friends is a vegetarian, and ordered the 7-vegetables dish. Wow- who knew a plate of veggies would look (and taste) so delicious. Very impressed. The wine was excellently paired with our meal. The dessets. Yes, that is pleural. We tried the newer smores dessert. very good. But not as good as the Bananas Foster- which they are known for. Don't miss out on this one! And, we were there celebrating a friend's birthday. As the classy establishment Eddie V's is, no songs were sung, but a very nice card was signed by all and presented at the table.

    Two words - crab cake! I have never ever had a crab cake like the one at Eddie V's. It was huge and all crab. There were three of us at dinner and all of us agreed that the crab cake was amazing - the best we have ever had. The rest of the food was very good and the waiter was excellent. The overall atmosphere is very nice and a wonderful dining experience.

Everyone from the hostess to the waiter to the support staff all said "happy anniversary". The tables had rose petals laid out and there was even a card signed by all the staff!!! It was awesome!!!

    We had a reservation for dinner, to celebrate our 25 years of marriage , the staff had asked so I had told the host it was our special day. The service from the second we waled into the restaurant was perfect- beyond expectations! Table had been decorated with rose pedals! Our table was on the windows overlooking the cove at night! The food was incredible, the seafood tower, filet and all the sides were so well prepared The wine selection was fantastic and did I mention the fantastic service! All aspects of our visit were beyond our expectations, the staff , the food and the space. If you have not been, hurry and enjoy this great restaurant! After dinner we had a glass of wine upstairs and enjoyed the live jazz. Perfect ending. Thank you

    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.

    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 !!!
