Steak was a little overdone instead of medium rare. Manager offered to have another piece prepared, but, guest was hungry. They comped the steak instead - we didn’t request this, they just did it. Excellent customer service.

Beautiful dining room overlooking La Jolla Cove. Excellent choice for a relaxing luncheon. The Crab and Corn Spicy Chowder was excellent. (although our first soups arrived cold). Timing of our service lagged and attention to details wasn't keen. We often join Eddie V's at several of its many outlets.

I love Eddie V's, we frequent the Headquarters location, but this was my first time in the La Jolla location. It has a completely different vibe, its lively and energetic and awesome. The staff was RIDICULOUSLY fantastic. The food, as always was impeccable.

This is a must go to dining experience and bring a friend, you are going to want to share a lot of the "extras" available on the menu.

The food and service were excellent! We recommend the Sea Bass and a side of Chicken Fried Rice. Since I was with a client it was an issue to complain about being seated outside in very cold weather. We did not make that request and although we enjoy many Eddie V’s, locations, the La Jolla location is off our list and we will go to Seaport Village on our next visit to the San Diego area.

We went to Eddie Vs for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a madhouse, we didn’t expect it to be so crowded. Even though we made our reservation in early October, we ended up in a temporary space which was an enclosed outdoor patio. Even though it was raining hard, it was OK but we would have preferred the main dining room. As always, the food was excellent. Eddie Vs is quite expensive but you definitely get a fine quality meal for the price. Highly recommend if you don’t mind the cost

One of my go-to spots when I want to impress out-of-town guests. I told them I asked for a special ocean-view table and they delivered. We were hooked up us with patio seating that also had a fire going. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. Thank you for a memorable family dinner!

We had a good dinner. The flower petals and card on the table were a nice touch. The bruschetta was delicious!
I ordered the filet Oscar style and the only negative is I bit into a chunk of shell twice. I wasn’t expecting there to be any shell still on the crab!
The bananas foster is always delicious.

My partner and I were dining at Eddie V’s this evening to celebrate us becoming parents. Our server Dominic was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and had great recommendations. He definitely made our night feel even more special! We will be back. Food was great too I’d recommend the crab cake appetizer.

The hostess at this location has an attitude. She is not friendly and less than accommodating. We had requested online a table over looking the dinning area, and when I arrived I asked if that would be possible.
She said you 15 minutes early so find a place to sit in the bar. So we stood in the patio waiting for a seat at bar. After a seat opened in the we ran to it and ordered a drink. We it was time for our reservation I walked over to the hostess and said we are at the bar. She found us, but never made an offer to transfer bar the tab or carry our unfinished drinks. Then she sat is a table near the area where the table setting are staged. The food was good and server was good, but an sorry that hostess was on duty that evening.

We celebrated our 30th anniversary and was very happy with our romantic table and even happier with our server Max Diamond!! He kept our Prosecco glasses full and met our every need. He was so personable and attentive. He made our dining and celebration experience a night to remember!! Our filet mignon was delicious and my husband loved the Lobster tail!! The potatoes au grautin are amazing!!! Thank you Eddie V’s!!!

We have dined there before and have always enjoyed it. The food was excellent as was the service. The ambiance is great as well. Unfortunately it was exceptionally noisy that night. We had to practically shout at each other just across the table.

This restaurant is one of those "Gotta do it" places, one of the best in the world. I have been around the world more times than I can count... at least 10 Million miles via airlines and I can vouch for the ambiance, service, food and views. If you want the best steaks, seafood or service this is a must go to place. We have dined here since they opened many years ago and it just keeps getting better. Consistent, above average, elite for just a few.

Enjoy,

30th birthday celebration for my husband. His mom flew in too. I called ahead to let them know about the celebration, and I was told a complimentary dessert would offered.
There was no dessert given to us.
Other than that, food and view was amazing.
