    From reservation to phone follow up, clarification of seating preferences, to server personality, food and wine knowledge--and recommendations, and finally to the phone call of appreciation and e-mail invitation to take this opportunity to express my pleasure at the awareness and positive steps to make a change in the lack of 'SERVICE' in this industry (and most others) has my highest recommendation! Ahi suggestion: when I order Ahi, I do not expect gristle that I would encounter eating carne asada. Give me less but ask the chef to trim.

    In addition to being a beautiful venue, with impecible service, there is live entertainment in the bar nightly! This singer sounded just like Tony Bennett. It is not a hot spot, but we had a wonderful birthday experience with our 96 year "young" Aunt.

    Overall it was excellent - ambience, food, live music,location.Price is equivalet to a fine dining experience. Receptionist was good to follow up reservation and seated us to another table per request (there was a loud group beside us).Except, for our table server. Everybody was not happy in her service. She didnt help us with the menu so it took awhile for us to decide. Because a person has shellfish allergies so she asked about a fish dish and the server described the dish but no suggestions given. She seemed to be in a hurry. Not smiling a lot. The space will not be enough to add some more notes. Unfortunately we were expecting much bec this was planned a yr ahead for the birthday celebrants. First and last for eddie v's for our group.

    This restaurant was recommended to us by a very high end client who said it's the best food she'd ever had! The Maryland crab cake app was terrific indeed, and I'm from Maryland! The wine, although very good, was not worth $80 a bottle, I felt $65 was more appropriate, but I continued to have a good time. Then the entrees came. The lobster was salt and overcooked; the scallops were burned and also overdone. Side dishes at additional cost, were swimming in butter. We split an appetizer and had no dessert. For $315 dinner for two, I will not go back.

    Awesome dining experience with very attentive and thoughtful, pleasant service from staff. Food was high quality, tasted great and presented well. My wife couldn't stop talking about what a great time she had at this restaurant and how she can't wait to come back. The bar was very elegant with well informed and pleasant bartenders. Great location, right by Seaport Village and close to Gaslamp hotels

    I am a steak snob! I don't mind paying extra for a great steak. I've been disappointed at Steakhouses around the country that have pretty solid reputations. So when the waiter was commenting on the high quality of the steaks, you can bet I was thinking...."I'm sure you think so". Glad I didn't say it out loud...I would have been eating my words! As good a Ribeye steak as I have had anywhere...bar none! Wife had seafood and loved it. Service and Attention to Detail...impeccable!

    We chose this restaurant because it was near where we were staying and didn't want to have to go far. I had the scallops - which were perfectly done and seasoned well. The only thing I didn't care for was the "au gratin" potatoes...very bland...but the restaurant is lovely - the wine choices were great - we both enjoyed it!

    I came to this restaurant because of the good reviews from Yelp. First off, there is a terrible smell when you walk in to this restaurant. It was not pleasing. The food was mediocre. I had much better fish in Chicago, where I am from. It was a bit salty for my taste. I would not recommend this restaurant. It did not win my taste buds over.

    The food here was absolutely marvelous! It was for sure a five star food experience sans dinner jacket. The atmosphere was casual so there was no pressure to dress fancy, and just in case you're outside dining at night and feel that cool harbor breeze, Eddie V's has cashmere shawls to keep you warm as well as an impressive wine list! If I were stranded on a desert island and I only had one thing to eat for the rest of my life, it would absolutely have to be their truffle baked macaroni and cheese! Every bite was bliss.

    when I booked my reservation I stated it as for a birthday and they actually remembered. A card signed by the staff was waiting for me with a sign on the table. Our waiter adam was very attentive and very helpful in picking our entrees for the evening. The choices were outstanding. The lemon sole and the Char were delicious along with the crab fried rice. Our appetizer were oysters - very good !. Dinner was topped off with Bananans Foster. we never felt rushed and the wine selection was very good. The La Jolla site probably has a better view but they were booked for the time I wanted. I will try that site soon.

    We had a very nice evening at Eddie V's. The bar scene for happy hour was energetic and fun. The bartender made everyone feel like they were family. The food was over and above "bar" food and when we were seated in the dining room things got even better. The steaks are surely prime and the swordfish was perfect.

    I must say I was pretty impressed with my overall experience with included making a reservation on Open Table to my dining experience. I've made reservations prior on Open Table and Eddie V's was the only one to call me the day of to confirm my reservation. Nice! When my party arrived before me, they were given the option to sit at the table or get a table in the lounge/bar area for happy hour. When I arrived (which was just minutes before our 6pm reservation) were were escorted to our table and everything was laid out. Upon receiving our bread & butter, which were totally delicious, we ordered our meal for restaurant week. From appetizer to dessert, everything was perfection. Thank you!

  • Decent, but not the best
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    We were excited about trying Eddie V's as I had heard good things about the overall dining experience. While the food was okay, it was not as good as expected. My filet mignon was fatty, something I rarely find at a fine dining spot. The service was mediocre at best. Even though the restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived, water glasses were not filled up regularly, desserts took a very long time and no one came to ask how our food was until a while after it was delivered. Still not a bad place, just not quite up to expectations given their prices.

    Fun location (Headquarters), wait staff was truly excellent from cocktail lounge to dining area. Lobster bisque had good flavor but was "thin." The parmesan coated sole was terrible, dry and flavorless from being overcooked. Creme brulee was excellent even though it was substituted for the ordered Butterscotch panna cotta. With all the wonderful steak and seafood restaurants in San Diego (we do miss the Palm), we wouldn't go back.
