As waiter handed me a bread plate he noticed there was dried lemon rind on it. He tried to subtly scrape it off with his finger and when it didn’t come off he handed me the plate anyway. The outdoor seat cushions were not clean and the glass partitions had fingerprints all over. We were the first reservation of the night (4:00pm) so I would’ve expected everything to be clean. Kind of disappointed.

We went during restaurant week/sandiego dining, which is actually a month long thing because of COVID and what not. I normally don't like restaurant week because the food can sometimes not be as good. Wow was I pleasantly surprised. Steak was perfect, salad was fresh, the salmon was amazing, and crab fried rice!? Not to mention their bananas fosters dessert that came with the restaurant week menu. Highly recommend going before 10/15 to take advantage of the great deal. Our server Ashley was amazing as well. Very prompy and friendly.

Really beautiful setting, amazing views. Tables are nicely spaced out, lots of umbrellas for shade. The service was awesome and the food delicious. It's very expense, but a great spot for a celebration, treat, or if you're rich....

If you’re looking for an outdoor, sophisticated dining experience then Eddie V’s in La Jolla can deliver. Beautiful views of La Jolla Cove and Shores. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the 3 course Restaurant Week set menu, which was amazing value and provided some excellent choices of appetizers, entrees, and desserts at only $50.

Service was first class...friendly, helpful, efficient.

If you’re concerned about their COVID-19 arrangements, don’t be. Staff were all wearing face masks over their mouths and noses every time we saw them. Tables well spaced.

Definitely will be returning.

We had the most AMAZING anniversary dinner at Eddie V’s last night in La Jolla! Not a detail was missed and the evening was magical from the wonderful customer service (BIG shout out to Troy, our stupendous waiter and mixologist - loved the Manhattan you made!), the ambiance- wonderful table over looking the beautiful Pacific Ocean - and the wonderful food! We always love the lobster tacos to start but Troy convinced us to try the crab cakes, absolutely amazing. What I didn’t mention is how the evening started. When we were shown to our lovely table, there were rose petals on the table with two glasses of champagne waiting for us. Dessert was also a fabulous surprise as well.

And to think if it were not for one man (we would love to know his name) who was part of the Eddie V’s management team, we would have missed out. A number of years ago on New Year’s Eve, we spent the afternoon shopping and walking around La Jolla and decided we wanted a glass of wine and an appetizer. We ventured into Eddie V’s and were told upstairs outside seating only. We discovered no seating but there were some tables inside near the bar. We were told that we couldn’t sit there, out door seating only. She was surly and short with us (bet she doesn’t work there anymore) and we decided to leave. As we walked out the door, someone from the restaurant was standing outside and asked us how everything was. My husband answered “terrible”, we couldn’t even get a table and the person was rude. He apologized profusely and insisted we come back in and he would make it right. It took some convincing but we finally agreed to go back. Instead of taking us back upstairs, he took us to the bar in the main dining room and told the bartender, “give them anything they want, it’s on us”. We started to say that no we will pay but he was insistent. On a recommendation from the knowledge, friendly bartender, we split lobster tacos and had a glass of wine and have been huge Eddie V fans since! Amazing place!

We were seated at a great table with a view. Troy was an outstanding waiter and bartender. He was engaging, attentive, and professional. The oysters were superb, as usual! We also enjoyed the fresh crab cakes, buttery sea bass, tender steaks and fine wine and champagne. A wonderful evening to celebrate summertime in San Diego!
