    Services was lousy. Food arrived 1 hr. after ordered. 2 dishes were good. 4 dishes had to be returned because they were cold. 1 dish was prepared again and was hot but not edible. This is the first time this has happened to us; they claimed is was a back up in the kitchen.

    We chose Eddie V's for an important client dinner, and it couldn't have been better. Seated on the rooftop patio, the views were incredible for our midwest guests. Our server was appropriately attentive; his suggestions were spot-on and we appreciated the custom mixed appetizer plates. All 5 of us raved about the entrees. This is an expensive restaurant, but remains one of my favorites in San Diego. Highly recommended.

    Amazing views straight from the table. Excellent service throughout the restaurant. Unfortunately the food didn't quite live up to the high standards. The food was either too bland or too strongly flavoured (i.e. the jumbo shrimps were over seasoned with garlic hiding all other flavours). Still worth a visit for the view and excellent service.

    This used to be one of my favorites, but the last few times I have been there, the food was just okay. The steaks are still good but expensive without any sides included in the price. The fish dishes I have had were very bland. They are plated well but lack distinctive tastes. If you are looking for views, this is the place. If you are looking for a great meal, go to Pamplemouse

    We had mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary when we booked our reservation at Eddie V's, and every staff member was aware of it and made our evening celebratory and special. The hostess brought us complementary champagne, they had rose petals on our table with a signed card, and our dessert came out with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate. Service was top notch - attentive, upscale, and personable. Views are stunning, and the food was excellent. Perfect spot for a special occasion.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Eddie V's…. it could not have been lovelier. We had a drink at the bar while waiting for the window table to open (great martinis!!) and were then seated at a lovely window table; the staff had decorated the table with red rose petals and left an anniversary card on the table for us. Our server then came over with 2 glasses of champagne for us…. what an unexpected start to a lovely evening. Dinner was delicious with a beautiful presentation and then the waitress brought us a 'gift' dessert from the chef. Eddie V's outdid themselves to make our celebration really terrific.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
