    we went there for a friend's birthday, there were 6 of us. we were seated in a small table without sufficient space for all the dishes that we ordered. The food was just ok, not exceptional for a restaurant like this. they dont have in house pastry chef and so I need to buy the cake outside. However, our waitress was funny and attentive. She was the best part of the evening

    Red rose petals on table, anniversary card signed by all restaurant employees, excellent service, excellent food (we had lobster). The atmosphere was really good; there was a singer and piano player we could hear in the next room. They were really good. My wife and I would definitely go back again.

    We had tried the La Jolla location when they first opened. We were so put off by the pretentious waiter that we never went back. We are so glad that we gave the Headquarters location a go. We've been there 4 times and each time was perfect. Can't wait to go again! The scallops are amazing and the Banana Foster is like none other.

    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.

    We chose Eddie Vs as a new dining experience to us on vacation in SD. The food and wine choices were excellent and the waitress did not fuss around or bother us. The portions were big and good value for money and the ambience ok but a little noisy sometimes as we sat upstairs near a large group. My only issue was that the aircon was ferocious and we were chilly at times but that may be just where we sat. We would dine here again but away from the icy blasting aircon next time!

    We ordered d calamari appetizer, a little spicy but overall, tasty. Lobster bisque was a little too watered down for my liking. Hubby had d swordfish which was slightly overcooked, my steamed Chilean seabass was a little fishy with soy sauce as it's base (omg!) Couldn't eat d spinach underneath d fish as it was soaked in soya sauce. Ordered crab fried rice (think it was fried with butter as it tasted too rich), brussel sprouts with bacon was over charred and spinach with cheese was ok. Service I hv to say was above average as I can see d server goes above n beyond in trying to ensure we r well taken care of. Afterwhich, had a call d next day fr d restaurant asking for feedback fr our dining experience n that's a first for me.

    Our reservation was 9:30 and we were seated 10:15 (45 minutes after) and the only thing we they said was sorry, that the table enforce us was taking more time than expected. This delay in our seating caused the rest of our night to be in dishes brought in a hurry and everyone looking eager to go home. If you have seated us at our original time, this wouldn't have happened

    Eddie Vs was outstanding both in service and food. The staff worked as a team and really went out of their way to make us feel special and welcome. Highly recommended for a great meal and top notch service. The prices were reasonable for the high level of service. They had live Jazz music playing in the lounge which could be heard in the dining area, but it was not overbearing so did not hinder our conversation.

    I am not easily impressed. But Eddie V's and our waiter Kai (Sp?) were a wonderful surprise. We were attending ComicCon and needed a nice dinner. It was a short walk form the convention center and they could seat us at the time we needed. The food was exquisite. Every bite! Martinis, Apple Salad and Lobster Bisque starters; seared Ahi and scallops, and chocolate cake for dessert. All excellent. 10 out of 10 for taste and presentation. And the waitstaff was also superb. Kai (I hope I spelled it right) was knowledgeable about every dish. He was on top of everything. When reviewing a top-notch place, it sometimes comes down to the details. Eddie V's nailed them all!

    We celebrated our 1st Anniv here and I really thank the staff for their extra attention and treats. Highlight was the two mains we had-scallops and sole. The lemon sole was one of the best fish dishes I've had in SD let alone in my travels. Kudos to the kitchen crew for putting out such a quality dish and for the spot on service

    My husband and I tried Eddie V's as a recommendation from a friend while we were in town for Comic Con. The restaurant was very nice. They sat us in the center where the wine cellar was located & we were very impressed. Also, there was live jazz playing in the adjacent bar that we were able to hear while we dined. My husband ordered the scallops & brussel sprouts & they were perfect. I ordered the 8 oz filet & truffled mac & cheese. Unfortunately, my steak came out over cooked. They were very quick to cook me a new one. The second one came out very under cooked & the manager made sure to cook me a new one. They were kind to comp my steak and offer a free dessert. They did a great job in accommodating me. Overall, it was a good experience.

    My wife and I stayed at the us grand hotel. We asked a the man at the front desk about a nice place to eat and listen to jazz. He recommended eddy v's. He said that everyone that went had nothing but good things to say about the place. We decided to go and we were not disappointed. The food was great and the live jazz band was incredible. We went on a Sunday night, luckily we made reservations ahead of time online. We sat in the bar at a booth right in front of the band. We really enjoyed ourselves and my wife couldn't wait to get back to LA and brag to her friends about how nice the experience was. If you're ever in San Diego do yourself a favor and stop by Eddie V's. You'll love it. D.Price

    Our first visit---but not our last---was excellent in every way. The reception was professional, the waiter professional but friendly and knew the menu very well, and service from all concerned exceptional. The food was very good--we both had soft shell crab appetizer, and both had different fish for entrée, and shared a dessert. Though I missed the call, Monica called the next day to see if we were pleased with everything. We will return.

    I had read previous reviews that raved about the food and service and was not disappointed. As it was our first time here, my husband and I asked for recommendations from our waiter and the selections were right on. We started with the calamari, which was spicy and tender. Yum! Then I had the scallops and my husband had filet mignon. Both were exceptional. The staff at this restaurant were all friendly and attentive to our needs. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that are looking for great food along with great service.

    The menu and execution strike an exceptional balance of flavors and choices. The portions are large and commensurate with price. Atmosphere is dressy-casual while the decor and music produces a romantic mood. Live jazz is a bonus, sit in the bar if you're in the mood for shakin' your tail a little. Definitely would recommend this restaurant, satisfies my foodie appetite for steak and seafood choices in American fusion and traditional dishes.
