    My girlfriend and I went here because of all of the positive reviews on Yelp. Eddie V's did not disappoint at all! The food was all excellent, the wine was excellent, and the staff is very attentive. I would highly recommend asking for Todd if you go there' he's one of the best servers I've ever had (and I eat out a lot all over the world). Todd made suggestions to us on wine, appetizers, and entrees. As it turns out, we ended up getting 5 out of the 6 things he suggested and boy was he right. If you want a stellar meal that's worth every dollar you'll pay for it, go here. Definitely try the crab cake appetizer and the crab fried rice side dish with your meal. You won't be disappointed!

    I had an absolutely incredible experience at Eddie V's. The food was amazing. The butter for the bread was very good. The wine was very good and the drinks were made strong which is perfect after a long and stressful work week. The cesar salad was very good with the perfect amount of cheese and croutons. I had the salmon and it was the biggest piece of salmon I have ever had. It was very good. The vanilla ice cream with sorbet and cookies were amazing. The cookies were so warm and soft they were like eating warm brownies. The service was excellent and we got our food so quickly. We were done eating a three course meal within an hour. It was very big inside and they have an upstairs and a downstairs with nice music downstairs.

    I had a gift certificate to go here, and though I have no complaints, it just feels a bit canned, like most chains. It feels like a place you go for a business meeting or on an expense account. The food and service were good, but not spectacular. There are so many other places I'd go again before going back here.

    We had delicious seafood for appetizer and entrees at Eddie V's Prime Seafood in the new Headquarters development. It's a great addition to the complex and rivals the best seafood restaurants in San Diego. Service was not only attentive, but the server addressed us by name, which was such a nice surprise! Too full to try dessert, but we'll save room for that next time! Beautiful interior and not too noisy - live music from the bar could be heard in main dining area downstairs, and it was really enjoyable!

    Best meal and service we have had in quite a while. The menu choices were varied and the dishes were delicious and hearty when they arrived. The grouper is a standout. Don't forget to have the Bananas Foster Butter Cake - so good we had to take some home. When you go ask for Chris - great waiter.

    My wife and I went to Eddie vs downtown for the first time. It was such a pleasant surprise! The ambience is striking, really unlike any other restaurant in San Diego. Spacious tables in cozy little rooms with glimpses of other spaces. The lighting, finishes, along with the great acoustics really sets the mood. The live music subtly playing in the background was also appreciated. The food and service were of course, what we have experienced at the the la jolla Eddie vs....delicious and attentive. Thank you, we'll be back.

    Our server, Patricia, was outstanding. Besides that, only the extensive (and very expensive) wine list stands out about the place. It's nice, but there's nothing creative or interesting about the food here. I'm not sure how one would differentiate it from any other high end steakhouse. The earliest reservation we could get was 8:30, which was fine, but they didn't seat us until almost 9, which had us out pretty late for a week night. My companion requested a blue cheese/butter sauce for his steak. Cold blue cheese dressing was delivered, but Patricia returned it right away and got what he wanted. Our steaks were definitely overcooked and we declined returning them because it was so late. At a place like this, that should never happen.

    The decor was great. Staff were very welcoming and attentive. The upstairs dining rooms were great overlooking the bar, so we heard the evening entertainment at a sound level that was very nice, allowing for conversation as well. The staff were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu, their restaurant and our dining experience. The banana butter cake was fantastic. All the food was great. We are looking forward to a return visit.

    I brought visiting family to Eddie V's for dinner and the place was so busy that they could only acomodate our reservation on the patio. This was great given how pleasant the weather was and allowed us to be seated 50 minutes before our original time. Unfortunately, a missed handoff of information to our server led us to wait for 20 minutes without having even drink orders taken. By the time we were midway through appetizers a manager personally came by to appologize for the delay and offered us our drinks and appetizers on the house. From this point forward the service was excellent and at all times the food was expertly prepared and delectable. All in all a great night out and would happily return despite the early misteps.

    Everything at Eddie V's was great, except the first table we were seated at. Try to avoid the tables in the center of the first room in front of the wine room, it is drafty and you can't hear a thing - something about the acoustics sucks your voice out of the air. All the food was just fabulous, and we tried a lot of dishes - and intend to go back to try more!

    We've eaten at the La Jolla Eddie V's and it was outstanding. We thought we should give the downtown one a try also and it was outstanding too. All the staff were pleasant and attentive. Giovanni was a great waiter. Each of our fish dishes and our three appetizers had very distinctive flavors. Many restaurants will smother the dishes with sauces, but Eddie V's brings wonderful flavors to your palette. This was a birthday celebration and they treated me like royalty.

    I visit San Diego five times a year and Eddie V's is now my most favorite! I was there for the first time in March and could not wait to return to see if my initial wonderful dining experience could be duplicated. It certainly was, from the moment I walked in the door and throughout the meal, it was a the best of service and dining. I had the NY strip with cognac peppercorn sauce once again, it was prepared perfectly and was delicious! The crab fried rice is also a favorite. Eddie V's offers the entire package for dining, excellent service, ambience and especially the food!

    Service and food ...EXCELLENT!! My husband ordered a salad and I had the Maryland crab cake to start. We both decided that the crab cake is a must when going there. You can get salad at other places but I have never had such a delicious crab cake like this one. We both ordered fish and shared two small side dishes which we enjoyed a lot. Had a glass of wine which we thought was a nice selection. Too full for dessert but I am sure whatever they have must be excellent. Our waiter, Scott, took excellent care of us with his suggestions and being there when needed. Eddie V's is a great addition to the San Diego restaurant scene. It is an expensive place but I don't mind paying the price when the food and service is excellent.

    After dining there a few weeks back and not being particularly impressed we decided to dine again and this time sit in the V Lounge. We ate on a Thursday at were sat at 6pm. Music starts at 6pm and happy hour runs till 7. We each had a salad for dinner course but ordered several appetizers in order to try a variety of things (fried oysters, calamari, tuna tartare, and the lobster tacos)... all of which were outstanding. The Lobster tacos & Calamari are A MUST! The salads were good as well. The lounge is very sophisticated and sexy. We enjoyed the sights and sounds between courses (live jazz with martini shakers being made at the bar adding to the vibe). Great service and amazing bayside location. Beautiful interior. Pricey but worth it!

    A really nice restaurant with great food and bar with terrific bartenders. The problem I have with it was our server, who was condescending, particularly when he found out we were from the UK. He asked if we were local, we obviously said no and the service deteriorated whilst he concentrated on other tables. San Diego is built on tourism, surely we should expect to get the same service as local guests.

    It was a great evening, from the hostess' greeting until the final good-by. Our server was courteous, knowledgeable about the menu and enthusiastic. He checked back often, without being intrusive. The crab cake was the best we've tasted -- East Coast or West. The bisque and corn chowder were excellent. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. The ingredients paired with the seafood were out of the ordinary. We enjoyed the new tastes. The scallops with grapefruit was a real crowd-pleaser. The wine list had many varied choices at affordable prices. We especially enjoyed the live music coming from the bar.

    The 3 legs of a great dining experience are (1) great food; (2) great service; and (3) great ambiance. Eddie V's has numbers 1 and 2 down pat (outstanding), but the 3rd leg is broken. The piano music in the lounge was bad 1950’s style and the decor was like an Aqua Vela velveteen gangster pad.

    We had a great time at Eddie V's. The staff was excellent and so was the food. Many chefs won't plate 2 shared dishes for the customers; Eddie V's did that. We discovered that one fish choice was unavailable; that told us that the fish is very fresh and Eddie V's would rather sell out of a choice than have fish on hand that is less than fresh. Eddie V's has a bit of a superiority complex.

    I made an advance reservation for 7:30 on a Saturday and when we arrived they were absolutely packed. We were about 6-7 minutes late so I'm not sure if that affected our reservation, but we were not seated until a little after 8pm. That was the only minor setback to the evening - otherwise the staff was excellent, the food was the best I've had in recent memory, and the Managing Partner made a point of coming over to visit our table and ask how our dinner was. We were celebrating my husbands 50th birthday so they gave us a complimentary dessert (banana fosters butter cake - unbelievable), which was a great end to an excellent dinner. Eddie V's is an excellent addition to downtown San Diego dining.
