The view at Eddie V's was absolutely breathe-taking , a panoramic view of the La Jolla Shores...we were seated at a great table. My husband an I both enjoyed the Filet, which we both tried a different type of preparation..one encrusted in Horseradish and other in a blu cheese ---so so delicious! Our server was a pure pleasure and we hope to back soon!

Made reservation well in advance but seated at subpar inside table. Food was so-so, except for sea bass which was delicious. Bisque had only one piece of lobster and it contained a large chunk of shell. Drinks were weak and quite expensive. In no hurry to return.

The food here is always delicious - can't go wrong. I LOVE the Parmesan Crusted Sole and the Bananas Foster Butter Cake. You wont be disappointed. Very consistent. Superb view from the outdoor deck and since we ate outside, it's pretty quiet and relaxing. Roxanne did a great job of taking care of us!! Thanks!

Visiting from Cincinnati.
Bartender Stu was so professional and nice as I ate at the bar with a dear old friend.
He made delicious suggestions for Happy Hour…just take his advice…he’s worked there for 9 years!
He even shares my love of Pez, which taste (the orange ones) like St Joseph’s baby aspirin from childhood.
Looking forward to returning over and over.

Eddie V's location and views from the dining room are fantastic. The menu selections and the food
itself are great. Our waiter, Kevin was very attentive and provided a wonderful desert to celebrate our anniversary. My two only very minor complaints are:
Some of the chair backs are very worn. They did not have a common whiskey I requested for my cocktail.
Eddie V's is a great place to celebrate a family event.

Eddie V's made our anniversary celebration all the more special. The staff was lovely, the dishes and cocktails were delicious, and the view was beautiful. Can't really ask for anything more than that. Would definitely recommend, and we'll be back on our next visit to La Jolla!

As they say, “Sometimes it be like that.” Even the best restaurants aren’t perfect 100% of the time. It was a rough night for our table, but the Eddie V’s management and wait staff did their very best to turn it around. We will definitely be back and appreciate them doing such a great job of making sure we left happy, valued, and taken care of.

Sad that with an early seating an item on the menu was not available. We are fans of this restaurant but to be out at a 4:45 seating is poor planning. Interior refresh needed especially with most chairs faded and/or torn.

Family visiting from out of town, too bad the marine layer came in, it is usually beautiful which makes 7p for the high prices and ala cart portioning. Food quality is good the waiter neglected us for the most part, pandering to my brother in law thinking he was paying. Don’t need to go back any time soon.

Question is would I recommend Eddie V's in La Jolla, but it should be, have you already recommended Eddie V's - Yes I have. Hard to beat the ambiance sitting right on the coast looking over La Jolla Cove and Torrey Pines in the distance! Meal was fantastic, service matched and the live music entertainment was very good. Filet Mignon Oscar Style, Lobster Mashed Potatoes and Sautéed Spinach topped off with Banana’s Foster for desert. Perfect!

We sat in booth located downstairs in the bar area. Great view above the main dining room and near the cozy and romantic fireplace. Xianna took care of us and went above and beyond. We have sat at the downstairs bar before and Stu spoiled. Reserve your table during sunset. Gorgeous La Jolla!

What a disappointment! We made the reservation a month in advance. It was both our anniversary and Valentine’s Day and we noted this in our reservation requesting a window table. With 4:45pm reservation this should have been easy, apparently not.
When we arrived, they tried to seat us upstairs on the enclosed patio. I was wearing a cocktail dress and it was way too cold and with a loud group next to the table so we politely requested to sit inside instead.
We were told their were no window tables inside, so we requested the best view possible. As we were seated we noted there was indeed a window table open plus 3 tables on the second row and 5 open tables on the third row none of which were seated within the next 15-20 minutes. Instead they sat us on the back section, right next to the cash register and the bar stand where waiters came to get drinks and chat loudly basically worst table in the entire restaurant. Additionally, they were setting up 2 large tables right next to us blocking our ocean view and workers chatting loudly during the process...wow. They completely forgot to bring our salads, our fish arrived first, it was ordered medium well and was undercooked, actually partially raw. When I ordered a cup of decaf I was told there was none brewed so the would just bring me an Americano instead, really?? What a nightmare. No mention of our anniversary either. Bottom line, our anniversary dinner was a miserable experience and very disappointing. We have always had a nice experience at EVs before but this is very hard to excuse much less forget. Thanks for ruining our anniversary evening.

Service was just ok. Usually at such nice restaurants the staff is friendlier. For example I said thank you when my water was refilled and the guy just flatly said “ ...yup. “The waiter rushed when talking to us and was hamming it up at the table just behind us. So I felt like maybe we did something wrong. I’m sure we didn’t though. We’re always super polite. We go out to eat frequently so these are things I noticed that other places do better. I do understand it was a crazy day and will return regardless. Also they gave roses to everyone as it was Valentine’s Day except for us. I know that might sound silly but I noticed and it made me a bit sad. The food was excellent though so that’s what will get us back in the door soon.

We’ve been here several times and have always enjoyed having a drink in their second floor lounge before dinner. Apparently, they’ve either done away with the lounge or decided to use all available seating for Valentine’s Day. The food was lovely but our service was not very good. For the prices you pay here, you expect top notch everything. I doubt we’ll be coming back.
