Diner Reviews
  • "Food & location were exceptional. Recommend arriving before dark to enjoy the beautiful scenery of La Jolla cove, sea life, and sunset. Each food item was wonderful, flavorful, and well presented. Service was a bit disappointing. Very helpful & friendly, but slower experience than we would have liked. Delays before initial appetizer and between each course. Hopefully, just a tough night."

  • "My husband and I had appetizers and drinks on the second floor in the bar area before going inside for dinner. The view was spectacular and we were sorry to have to go in for dinner although we still had a nice view. The food was very good and the service was very attentive."

  • "We went for a family dinner with six very different palates. We were seated at a round table that was perfect in size. Jennifer M was our server and was absolutely on top of everything. She checked in with us very regularly and took special care to not interrupt the fun conversations the rest of the table was having. Her recommendations all came out good. We have been to other Eddie V's but the service at this one is among my favorites of all restaurants. Highly recommend."

  • "One of the best experiences we have had. First time and was not disappointed. I made reservations and requested a nice table with a view for our Wedding Anniversary. We arrived and was escorted to the upper level outdoors and our table as amazing with a panoramic view of the cove overlooking the ocean. The table was set with rose pedals and a dozen red roses waiting for my wife. Roxanne our waitress was amazing and the service was outstanding. The food and wine was excellent and our waitress even assisted in paring the wine with our food. Service was prompt and friendly. When it was time for desert our waitress asked if she could move us to a private view table that was available just 3 tables down to have even a better private view."

  • "I booked our anniversary dinner at Eddie V's because it was listed under romantic restaurants. It is and the service was excellent. The entire waitstaff knew of our special occasion. Just wish the June Gloom hadn't interfered with the sunset."

  • "We had an 8:15 reservation. We were there a little early and was told to wait a lie closer to our reservation time. We proceeded to the patio where was sat down, and my chair collapsed. I was mortified, embarassed, Not to mention bruised. Which I didn't feel til the next day. My wife is handicapped and I'm soon grateful if wasn't her, because it wouldn't have went over as easily. As we were waiting we were given an glass of champagne. We were then escorted to a beautiful table. It almost made up for the fall. We're not really sure if we'll go back since this was our third experiences twice in San Diego (both venues) once in Houston and here has not been good. I felt they could have been more attentive they examined the chair before me."

  • "Over rated and a place that expects to see you once on vacation. Locals do not eat here as there are many other long time reliable places to eat nearby. The old bartender with the grey hair and fat gut does you a favor to get you a drink. Do not order FISH at this place. Other reviews state that the fish is overdone and dry, they are consistent at this as my halibut was horrible. My girlfriend's steak was good though. The manager offered to buy us an appetizer because of the long wait but he soon disappeared and we never saw him for the rest of the night. There are too many other places to eat than Eddie V's. In the end, this is just another chain restaurant."

  • "Of course the view is amazing, but so is the service! It was our 42nd anniversary and everyone knew it and became part of our celebration. From the greeting by the hostess, to the rose petals (seriously) on the table, the staff made our evening a very special event."

  • "Perfect for groups no larger than six. Great views of the La Jolla Coastline. Interesting special cocktails, my wife enjoyed the Orange Mojito. Checkout the pot stickers and crabcake appetizers. Although it sounds simple the Caesar salad is wonderful. Can't really miss on any of the entrees, I enjoyed the scallops. Sides to definitely consider are the brussel sprouts, fried rice and au gratin potatoes."

  • "This newly refurbished site took an old restaurant haunt and made it into a breathtakingly spectacular location that takes full advantage of sweeping views of the Pacific - impeccable service and a mouthwatering menu top it off - lovely!"

  • "While the food and ambiance is fantastic, and our waiter, Paul could not be more attentive and nice, the timing of the food was awful. Too long between appetizers and the main course, and even longer for dessert. We had already finished our coffee, and still no dessert. We were not in a rush at all, and like leisurely meals, but also wanted to go upstairs to the lounge for an after dinner drink, which didn't happen because by then it was too late . Overall it took almost 3 hours start to finish. We understand that sometimes restaurants have unexpected issues, and will gladly come back. Hopefully next time the experience will be better."

  • "Previous visit for dinner was amazing, service was impeccable. Went again for lunch, they had our reservation (that we made through OpenTable) but told us we didn't have a table and to seat ourselves in the lounge. Waited 10-15 minutes for a waitress, then waited 10-15 minutes for her to take our order. Granted it did become very busy very quickly, they needed to add waitstaff but no one came to help the poor girl. Had the lobster tacos, which are amazing, but the order seemed rushed and not well put together. A let down after the previous dinner visit. Not sure if it was an off day (but it was Father's Day, they should have expected a crowd) or if dinner is where they put their better servers/cooks. I'd come back, but not for lunch."

  • "We ordered mushroom salad, lobster/beef appetizer, crab cake, filet/lobster entree and ahi entree, brussel sprouts,crab fried rice. I had two Moscow Mules, the first was great, the second didn't quite taste the same. Maybe not as much ginger beer, but it wasn't consistent. The crab cake was great, lots of crab,light, flavorful. The beef/lobster appetizer was ok. Clean flavor profile.Steak/lobster were both cooked very well and tasted great. Ahi was bland and a little tough.Brussel sprouts were over salted. The server was great and immediately brought a second order which was much better. Pretty simple dish as far as bacon/brussel sprouts,good,not overwhelming. The crab fried rice was really tasty though. I liked it, but didn't love it."

  • "Please make note that when I made my reservation I requested a table outside, I asked if they could not accommodate me to please call my cell so I could make other arrangements for dining in LaJolla with a outside table. I even called the day of reservation to confirm that they knew I only wanted a table outside and the girl that answered said they where aware of my request. So my husband, son and I arrive for dinner and they seated us inside with my back to the view. When I complained they apologized and offered a free appetizer, NO THANKS! I could go on but ...."

Our food and service matched the extraordinary view from the upper terrace. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect night."
