  • "We went to dinner around seven to sit outside - reservation on Friday was key. The table they had outside for us didn't open up so they sat us downstairs by a back window instead. The view was amazing and the food and wine were better."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Eddie V's boasts the most beautiful view of La Jolla - even when seated at the downstairs bar you will face the view. The upstairs bar is casual fun. The wine list is very good. We tend to dine here on all our visits to San Diego because we are never disappointed. The view is a highlight, yet the service and food are always excellent. The steaks are prepared perfectly, flavorful quality. While it may sound odd to order rice at a steakhouse, the fried rice with fresh crab and mushrooms is a personal favorite. Our friends tried it and understood why I love it so much!!! The banana foster desert with butter cake is plenty to share and worth the calories. Amy, our server, was wonderful. The restaurant reserved us a round table, perfect"

  • "While visiting La Jolla, we and another couple went to Eddie V's for a Sunday Lunch hoping to take in the scenery and marvelous weather. We got aces up in both! Eddie V's terrace dining levels are right atop beautiful La Jolla Cove, and providing expansive views of the Pacific. The food was well prepared, tasty and served with a very nice presentation. The cold crabmeat salad with avocado was impressive. Others selected the "BLT" salad, and it delivered as one would expect; all the goodies on a lettuce wedge. Service was casual, but professional and unhurried, and a heavy umbrella was adjusted nicely so we could sit outside without direct sun on the table. When we're back in La Jolla, we'll definitely try Eddie V's for dinner!"

  • "This is a great spot for excellent dining. The food was outstanding and the service was wonderful. I never had the feeling that we were being hurried. Our waiter was very attentive, but not bothersome. The views were breathtaking on the patio. Since it was our anniversary a card and rose petals were on the table before we got there. Also they gave us Bananas Foster as a complimentary dessert. We look forward to going to Eddie V's again."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here for the first time. Wow! We were blown away with their service and hospitality. First, our table, right next to the window with the outstanding view, had rose petals and an Anniversary card signed by the managers and staff. Next, we were offered a complimentary glass of champagne with your choice of fruit by the manager, Anna. The champagne was delicious. We would have probably ordered a bottle of that; however, we had already shared a bottle together at breakfast. Stephanie was our server, who made some excellent recommendations for our meals. The service and food was impeccable! Our night will always be remembered here! We will definitely be back soon!"

  • "Loved the patio upstairs, with the fabulous view however, on a warm day, they need to provide fans..............makes for not so a great an experience when it is too warm. I have read other reviews, and think they would agree. I don't think that would be too difficult and it would improve the experience tremendously! They need not be overhead fans. Otherwise, food fantastic, service was marvelous. Wine is a little expensive, but......"

  • "Went for our anniversary dinner. Were seated on the terrace, near the railing, with excellent views of La Jolla Cove. Started with house special margaritas. Shared the calamari appetizer. I got the stuffed shrimp, and she got the sockeye salmon special. A bottle of Paul Hobbs chardonnay. They brought us a special anniversary edition version of the fallen chocolate cake to share for dessert. All the food was excellent and the service was attentive and friendly. A great evening."

  • "My husband & I had eaten last year @ Eddie V's and really enjoyed it...so we decided to go back. Overall the service was great, my husband had salmon he said it was delicious, I had filet mignon it was somwhat over cooked and our side dish of au gratin potatoes was cold. But you can't beat the view!"

  • "Came here for my birthday and was blown away. The waiter was highly professional and friendly, the view was breathtaking, and the food was out of this world. Both the New York and ribeye steaks were delicious and the salmon dish was delightful. Out of the sides we order, the truffle Mac and Cheese was the best. Even the coffee here was on point. Probably my new favorite restaurant in San Diego!"

  • "Made reservation on Open Table, for 7:00pm, seated right away. Busy Friday night, by 8:00pm not a table available. Nice table, great view. Steak and seafood prepared to perfection. If you are not familiar with parking in La Jolla, it is some of the worst, nights included. Eddie V's does have Valet Parking in front of restaurant. Take advantage of it. Live music, does not effect dining. Well worth the price."

  • "The entree scallops came with sands inside?! and lump crab has so many shell in it. Only highlight is the raw oyster. Overall too expensive compare to the quality of food."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Second time here. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for. For design this place should get 6 stars. The tables are oriented so that most (not all) seats have some kind of a view out the windows to the water. It's beautiful inside with a lot of consideration to lighting -- soft warm ambient light with small spots down onto each white table cloth, so it's not too dim but there is no light directly in your face. And the music is not too loud. BRAVO!"

  • "The food was outstanding, large portions, reasonable prices, excellent views and great service! We will definitely visit again!"

  • "There are very few great restaurants in LaJolla that have it all -- ocean view, service and food to match. Eddie V's fits that bill with an excellent menu and quality seafood. Wine list is also of merit."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "From the moment we arrived, the staff provided personalized service. Our request for a window seat was honored, providing the perfect scenery. Cocktails were excellent and made promptly. Our waiter recommended great choices based on our preferences. The steak and lobster tartare were delicious, as were the halibut and scallops. We were even presented with complimentary desert! Overall a great dining experience."

  • "We were seated @7:30 and did not get served our food until 8:30. The waiter did not bring us the salad we ordered and when the dinner came, the two sides (garlic fries and the broccoli ) were cold. The fish we ordered was average...we've had much better at Ocean Club in Scottsdale, AZ. We sent the sides back and they were still no hot enough when they were brought back to us. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience. We will never return to any of the Eddy V restaurants."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Food was outstanding. Lobster tacos, Fuji apple salad and steak and lobster were all wonderful. Dinner took almost 3 hours, way too long. Server was apologetic and brought two deserts on the house. These even took forever. If they tighten the food turn times you will have a fantastic dining experience. Restaurant is also really noisy and bustling, not the perfect spot for a quiet romantic dinner."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Nice restaurant with great views of oceanfront / sunset. We ordered Lobster tails, filet, and shrimp dinner. The food was properly prepared, however, I felt the food was not as hot as it should be. My fiancé thought her Lobster tails were amazing. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed her shrimp dinner. For desert we had a chocolate lava cake that won't disappoint. The flambé banana foster cake was over cooked on the bottom making it chewy. The service was great and we never felt rushed."

  • "My husband and I went here for our anniversary for the first time and had an awesome time. Our meals were outstanding, stuffed shrimp with crab meat were prepared to perfection lots of flavor and we also had the filet with crab asparagus and hollindaise sauce, steak melted in your mouth. Would recommend this place for a special occasion. The view was also amazing!"

  • "We joined friends for dinner Saturday night on the patio, with the amazing view and location, but under the umbrellas was so noisy it required shouting. But the low point was the food; our Kung Pow Calamari and the bread were best; the ahi was ho-hum, the chowder was downright poor (flavorless broth) and at $32 for only a single piece of Walleye on the plate one would hope for a sauce that provided more interest than the boring creamy nothing, described as cauliflower and white truffle sauce. Hubby didn't finish his salmon, filling up on the over the top stuffed potato, and even the Bananas Foster were heavy and too sweet. Steak was good but all else was unremarkable and lacked pzazz...beige at best. Best have a drink and eat elsewhere."

  • "Eddie Vees is a great restaurant overlooking the cove in LaJolla. The lounge has agreat happy hour from 4 to 7 with delicious appetizers and top shelf cocktails they also have live music at seven just in time to catch the sunset. Our dinner was from one of the nights specials a 15 once lobster tail and a side order of grilled asparagus with truffle Mac and cheese for a second side dish. The food was excellent."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The views and atmosphere are tough to beat. We had a drink at the rooftop bar at George's and then came here to eat since George's was full. What a happy coincidence as I wouldn't change it. Food was awesome...but honestly the setting made up for any lack of quality in the food. We had a reservation but chose to forego it and grab a table on the rooftop bar. Will absolutely be back."

I chose wisely with this Eddie V's - amazing view from the patio, the service spot on, the wine list made a choice difficult with so many great options and the food was perfectly prepared. Bravo folks!"
