    I knew nothing of this place, but I liked the name. I wanted good seafood, so I thought I'd try it. What a find. I enjoyed it, so much I went back the following evening. Don't miss this place, it's a little hidden, but seek it out you won't be disappointed. Best seafood I have ever eaten.

    In town for business dinner for 2. Picked based on review and location to the hotel, across the street. The Tuna and Mahi Mahi cuts were like beef filets and exceptional, the balance of the salads and sides- very good. Service by Domenica was outstanding. I would not hesitate to return the next time in San Diego.

    The appetizers are quite filling, we ordered the batterfried oysters -- 5 large plump oysters with a dollop of yellow curry sauce on top, each sitting on pickled cucumber and crispy lotus root --amazing!! We also had the Maine lobster taco appetizer -- 2 taco's filled with sweet lobster claw meat -- also delicious but messy (as expected). Our entrees were: swordfish which was cooked perfectly-- so tender and moist with a pile of crab and avocado and a hint of red chili & citrus--the flavor was bright and fresh; and the halibut which was also cooked perfectly and served in a more rustic preparation over a bed of tender edamame, sweet corn and smoky nuggets of pork shank in a rich smoky sauce. Unfortunately we were too full for dessert!!

    I was visiting San Diego for a long romantic getaway weekend with my girlfriend and wanted to do what we call a "sexy dinner". Being from NYC, we LOVE amazing food and an environment where we can dress up and have a romantic night out for dinner and drinks. Eddie Vs was the PERFECT place. We got there a few minutes early and went to the V Lounge for a cocktail and to enjoy the live jazz music while our table was prepared. Cocktails were strong, and reasonably priced. We ordered the Lump Crab Cake and Fried Oyster appetizers which were INCREDIBLE. We ordered the Surf and Turf special and the Scallops. Both were amazing and cooked to perfection. Service was fast and frequent. Highly recommend this place for any special occasion for a couple.

    This is the sort of dining establishment I associate with Las Vegas. Huge, polished, food faultless & generally making an oversize impression of effortless abundance. They made every effort to accommodate & made it seem as though doing so was a pleasant diversion. The food was outstanding. We had the lobster tacos which we loved, but it was all sublime.

    Over the top waiter. Need to listen to our answers. Give us 15 to 20 minutes to enjoy our cocktail does not mean check back every 3 to 5 minutes. To much sunlight through the front door. No way to shade the direct sunlight in our faces.

    We made last-minute reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday. Not only did they fit us in, they made the evening so special, complete with a birthday card signed by the entire staff and a delicious personalized, complimentary dessert. Our waitress was warm, friendly, and helpful without being over-bearing, and the food was outstanding. Best shrimp cocktail and lobster bisque we have ever tasted. I wish we lived in San Diego so we could celebrate every special occasion at Eddie V's!

    This was the perfect place to bring our out of town family. We had a big group and there was plenty of room. Food was EXCELLENT. Tuna tartar and calamari were some of our favorites. Everyone loved their dish and hubby said his steak was better than a lot of the steakhouses in San Diego. Kuddos to Chef Brian and his staff.

    2nd time to V's. Best seats are in booth 133. Good jazz sounds (though they need a female torch singer VS guys singing 50's stuff). Ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and my wife had the steak. This was absolutely the best seafood dish I have ever tasted. Perfectly prepared, medium rare, moist, tender & offset with mild soy and spinach. Nothing to detract from the delicate flavor of the fish. My wife's filet was top grade, cooked perfectly and oh so tender. Ashley was our server & she was the ultimate professional, knowledgeable, articulate and great on repeated call backs. We wanted for nothing. One of the best all time experiences, obviously operated by consummate restaurant professionals.

    We had the most wonderful dinner and anniversary celebration at Eddie V's. It was for my sisters 47 th and the food was phenomenal. But Swordfish and crab. Amazing. Sher and Dons anniversary. Service was exceptional. They make you feel like Royalty. I had the scallops. Melt in your mouth luxury. more importantly the ambience was unbelievable. They had rose petals on the table with a lovely anniversary card waiting for us when we arrived. And the service was top-notch. Our server, Ky was beyond belief. I highly recommend this as a wonderful five-star dining experience.

    We celebrated our birthdays and was very impressed with the quality, taste and presentation of our meal. The birthday cards, signed by the staff was a nice personal touch and the complementary dessert was much appreciated. Our server was pleasant, gracious, professional and very accommodating. Only negative, and a very small one, was that Ginger was craving a glass of Riesling but there was none to be had. Overall the evening was a great success with excellent food and service. We have added Eddie-V's to our list of very special places to dine.

    First time at the downtown location because I was hesitant and wanted the view like at La Jolla but this locations dining experience definitely makes up for it with elegance and vibe from the management/staff. We celebrated a special occasion and got treated with rose petals, free wine and deserts at no cost. The live music was outstanding as well. I'd recommend this location to anyone and will visit again soon.

    We shared the crab cake for starter, gluten free, very tasty. The mains was a winner - scallops, which were dreamy. The swordfish steak was delicious. The sides of spinach and baked potatoe equally good. Desert was hot chocolate cake was mouth watering. Gluten free desert of berries and cream wasn't tempting.

    I was excited to take clients to this restaurant just because it is one that I had not been to/tried before. The décor and surroundings were pleasant. The level of service was somewhat unpolished for this type of establishment...although the server was nice she was substandard in her poise and knowledge of entrees. As for the food....not impressed for the price point! The best part of the visit were the desserts by far!!! (We shared the Lemon Meringue and Bananas Flambé w/ice cream). The drinks were great, we had The Moscow Mule, Lemon Drop Martini. My Chilean Seabass was bland, the petit filet was overcooked...and I'm only speaking for half of the table as I was afraid to ask what my guests thought of the meal since I was "treating"!

    First of all, the air conditioning was WAAAY TOO COLD!!!! We were told that it would be turned down...it wasn't!!I was offered a pashmina....ironic, isn't it? If they have to offer that, doesn't it mean that it's WAAAAY TOO COLD??? Our waiter was excellent; my food was good, but when the air came on, it blew directly on my fries & they were TOO COLD TO EAT!!! Besides being WAAAY TOO SALTY!!! And....shouldn't a restaurant of this caliber supply diners with a butter knife instead of us having to use a dinner knife? This was not our best dining experience.
