Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Everything about this resturant is great. Great food, service and the view is outstanding. I recommend this place for business dinners or a romantic dinner with your partner. I prefer sitting upstairs outside on the terrace."

  • "We have been there many times before. This was another very good experience. We love the lobster tacos or the ahi tartare to start with. Can't go wrong with their steak. Awesome taste and very friendly service. We are regulars, definitely will go again."

  • "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."

  • "Dinner at seven found the place packed and everybody seemed to be having fun. The menu was creative. The service was punctual. The food was well-prepared and served. The twice baked potato was especially good. Beware the Godiva flourless chocolate cake! It takes chocolate to a whole nother level!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I have been to Eddie V's twice in the last month...once with my daughter and once with my husband. It was a lovely restaurant to experince with both of them - the food was wonderful, scenery breathtaking, staff members are professional and welcoming. I believe that this is one of the best dining experience's in San Diego!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
