    This is an experience in dining not to miss! Everything about this resturant is exceptional. Wonderfully decorated and appointed with a warm, not stuffy, feeling. The staff are outstanding! They are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. The food is excellent with many choices to consider. There was nothing here that needed improvement.

    Ashley, our server, was one of the best EVER! Her extensive knowledge of the wine list and menu was impressive. She has to be under 25. Ashley, along with support staff, were exemplary at serving our table. Making sure that our every need was accommodated, and we never had to say a word. I am in my fifties and have frequented five star restaurants all over the world. I am ecstatic that this gem of a eatery is right in my own back yard. Brava Ashley, you and Eddie V's are AWESOME!

    I cannot say enough about my Eddie V's experience, from the ease that I was able to make reservations online to being greeted by a gracious hostess, the gregarious waiter, rich, luxurious atmosphere. And then the food! I took a client upon a recommendation by a girl I met at the beach and she was right! We started with the corn chowder and Lobster/crab bisque, then the calamari and dumpling apps-heaven! For dinner we had steak and roast chicken with a side of the crab rice and sugar snap peas. I cannot recommend this place enough!

    Wanting to do something special to celebrate my wife's birthday, came up with this as the place. This was our second visit to The Headquarters location, and we were not disappointed at all! Enjoyed Happy Hour in the bar with wine and bread, then scrumptious appetizers of crab cakes and yellowtail sashimi. Main course was the Tomahawk rib-eye which was superb. Chose the Brussels sprouts and au gratin potatoes for sides, both very good. My wife was treated with a Bananas Foster for desert, complete with flames and pecan ice cream with butter crumb cake. Normally not a bananas fan, but can only say OMG it was delicious.

    I had a Father/Daughter date night with three of my daughters, and let the restaurant know ahead of time through Open Table that we had to leave by 6:50 am to meet our show time for a Musical at the San Diego Civic Center. Our server had the check to us on time and we made the Musical with time to spare. Service at Eddy Vs was excellent, Food was terrific. Nice ambiance to the dining area. I've been to Eddy Vs in Austin, Texas but this is the first I've been to on the West Coast. They are both very nice. I also noted later that evening that there was a live band and music playing in the Bar area. We definitley will come back again. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    We went there for fish, ended up getting a excellent halibut dish. My 9ther half decided to go for the chicken as recommended by our server and it was dry. The crab cake was amazing and would definitely recommend the restaurant.

  • Birthday dinner at Eddie V's

    My wife and I had dinner here about two months ago and loved the dining experience so much that we decide to bring our three girls back to the restaurant to celebrate my birthday. The ambiance is sophisticated and stylishly modern. The dining area is a bit on the loud side because they were playing live jazz in the bar, but my girls loved the music. The food was excellent and we enjoy eating the superb choices of fish that they serve along with the excellent side dishes. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed the ceasar salad, truffled mac and cheese, garlic spinach, filet mignon with peppercorn sauce, the salmon, the sole and bananas foster for dessert. Even my nine year old daughter was amazed at how awesome the service was from our waiter and the support staff. Our waiter was V and he was super nice and attentive to us throughout our meal. Hands down this was one of the best dining experiences that our family has had the pleasure of attending. I would highly recommend Eddie V's as a must try restaurant when you are in downtown San Diego

    Had dinner with hubby here on Sat. night. We don't live in San Doeigo, so used Yelp to find this spot. I am on a restrictive diet- everything they made had so much flavor I did not feel deprived. It was chilly inside and my husband asked if they had a wrap I could wear- the waitress brought me a beautiful pashmina to wear. When we finished dinner we left our credit card. Before we got back to our hotel we had avoice mail letting us know so we could retrieve it. I iwhs there were an Eddie V's in Orange County- we have many great restaurants, but this topped them.

    This was my first visit to San Diego so I wasnt sure where to go or what places to pick. I choose Eddie V's from all the online reviews and I have to say it was the best choice I could have made. It was a wooonderful place to dine. I will surely be coming back. I wasnt happy with something I picked as my side dish and they took it off of my bill and apologized as if it was there fault I choice that item it was not any fault of there's but they took it off anyway I appreciated that I really did. I was really impressed. I love Eddie V's if you are ever in San Diego please give them a try you wont be disappointed I promise.

    This is a terrific seafood restaurant for entertaining clients. And it is within walking distance from the San Diego convention center and major convention center hotels. The sauces, the vegetables, the seafood, the wine-all excellent. And the waiter "told the truth" about the menu--as a result, the entree I ultimately chose was exceptional--he guided me with perfection.

    I had a special night prepared for my top clients, and it was important that each of them felt welcome and comfortable. Eddie V's put us in a private dining room and attended each of us like royalty. The food was scrumptious (I opted for a fixed menu to match my budget). Especially notable were the crab cake appetizers and chocolate godiva cake.

    From the moment we walked in at Eddie V's, we were treated like royalty. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and had indicated that at the time of our reservation. Petal roses were beautifully strewn over our table top with a greeting card with their staff signatures. We ordered calamari and oysters for appetizers, filet mignon and Chilean sea bass for our main entree. The sea bass melted like butter and the filet mignon was the best steak my husband has ever had. We topped it off with Banana foster. They had live music playing nicely in the background. What an amazing dining experience! Everything was so delicious! This is now our new favorite San Diego restaurant!

    The manager and staff were attentive to our every need for our friend's 60th birthday. They had our table ready when we arrived, flowers and champagne waiting. We started with the shellfish tower which was a wonderful beginning to our meal. There was a special birthday dessert at the end. The menu items were thoroughly explained to us and we were told how and where the fish were caught and transported to the restaurant. We had their full attention every step of the way which made it a truly special occasion.

    Eddie V's is so professionally operated. The general manager is a partner in the restaurant and the effectiveness of that formula shows in the incredible attention to detail throughout the entire operation. The service is beyond exceptional, you will never want for a thing. The wine list is extraordinarily diverse with a multitude of excellent selections, the menu choices are widely varied and every dish we have tried has been perfect. This definitely is a top winner in the very competitive San Diego restaurant scene.

    We thought we reserved our time at Eddie V's La Jolla. When we arrived the hostess checked and said Open Table had placed our reservation at down town San Diego instead of La Jolla. She said it's a common mistake that she's seen with Open Table reservations. She said she'll try to fit us in as soon as she could. Our reservation was for 1845. We were not seated until 2030 in the bar section - it's the best she could do. The food was a bit disappointing given the high ratings. The red fish was a bit dry and the 16 oz prime rib was not as flavorful as I was expecting. We've eaten at many high and low end places including, Bel Air Hotel in BV, Chop House, Maestro's, Spago's, Polo Lounge at BV, Royce at Langham Hotel etc. . .
