The food is always delicious and we appreciate the Chef. This time we had the Dover Sole and wedge salad and another in our party had the hamburger. The bananas Foster cake, ice cream, and chocolate cookie were all exceptional. Our server, Shane provided outstanding and impeccable service and went out of his way to make our dining experience fantastic. We dined outside and it was a beautiful day with a gorgeous view. Everyone at the restaurant is exceptionally nice from the time you enter at the desk to the server and after. We look forward to dining there again soon.

We were celebrating our anniversary and they made it very special. When we arrived they asked how many years we had been married and said all the right things. When we arrived at our table there were rose petals and a celebratory glass of Prosecco. We dined on the deck and the view was wonderful. Our server, Lauren, was excellent, making great wine suggestions and fully discussing the menu with us. After our dinner she brought us a wonderful dessert to share. It was truly a memorable evening.

Lisa is the most outstanding, professional, personable waitress I have ever had in my 58 years. She is so warm yet gets all your needs done! The food here is always exceptional and I absolutely love the crabcakes, the shrimp, the fillet, their Thai calamari appetizer,Their bread and their butter is out of this world. But none of that stands against the quality of service I get from Lisa. I’m not easy to please and she is the finest.

The venue is a must see and experience. Beautiful views.

Service: usually amazing but I think with all restaurants having a tough time finding good help, it wasn’t the normal amazing. We still tipped 20%.

Food: Always tasty. Really loved the steak strips, hamachi and crab fried rice…be careful of some shell as I gagged for a good 20 seconds trying to clear it out of my throat and the beef tartare was good, though I’ve had better calamari…it was not as tender, too fried and spicy.

Always a treat to go to Eddie V’s. This time we took our teens to introduce them and they loved it. Max our waiter did an outstanding job of making them feel welcome for a great experience all around. If you are looking for a fine dining experience with excellent food and service, and amazing views, Eddie V’s in La Jolla is not to be missed.

The ambience was superb! Absolutely beautiful and elegant inside.
The service left a lot to be desired. We asked for more bread for the delicious lobster bisque; it came later with dinner. We asked for the steak rare; it came medium rare (delicious nonetheless, so we didn't return it.) We needed a refill on drinks; we waited and waited. Asked again. It was getting chilly outside so the waiter said he would turn on the heater; it was turned on with dessert.
All in all it could have been a better dining experience if the waiter was more interested in what his customers wanted rather than be charming. Charming only takes you so far.

First time here in this location. Service was great. My steak came overcooked, the server and manager fired another steak so I can enjoy my dinner. I am in the same industry so I appreciate the effort and service provided to us to make this experience an enjoyable one. We will be back.

Great restaurant with seating upstairs outdoors with great views of the La Jolla Cove. Downstairs seating is indoors with large glass windows with great views. The food is excellent, we really enjoyed the Seabass which practically melts in your mouth and the Filet Mignon which was fantastic. The drink menu was unique with something for most. The waitstaff were very professional without being stuffy. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the full menu and was able to make excellent recommendations that fit what we were looking for. We showed up a bit early and were able to sit at the upstairs bar and watch the sunset.

Book Eddie V’s based on the advertisement that they were a prime seafood restaurant. My wife who was celebrating her birthday is particularly fond of seafood. We arrived on time and was seated outside with a poor view of the ocean. Since there were several tables opened next to the railing, I request a table changed and was denied being told they had been reserved by people who had booked a month in advance. My reservations had been booked 3 weeks in advance but still denied. Our server didn’t arrive to our table for 15 minutes took our order and brought our drinks. We finished our drinks and our appetizers and were still waiting for our main course an hour and 10 minutes later, never once being checked on and updated why our main course was so late. When it finally arrived, no apology as given for the delay. My steak was over cooked as was my wife’s fish. When the serve finally came back to check on us, I explained the problem. Again with no apology she said she’d send the manager. The manager arrived, apologized, and said she’d have the steak redone. She was also gracious enough to comp our meals. While I appreciated the financial gesture, our special evening was ruined. So upset things worked out this way.

Welcomed and seated for our 8:00 reservation and ordered drinks. When the drinks arrived we were informed that the kitchen was unable to prepare hot food, so all we could order were appetizers. We did get a complimentary dessert because it was our anniversary (assumed that would have happened anyway).

Service was chaotic, and we were surprised that there was no compensation for their kitchen problem (e.g. having the drinks made complimentary).

We will not return to this restaurant... not because they had a kitchen problem, but because of the cavalier way they chose to handle the problem.

Love dining at Eddie V's. We always know it's going to be an excellent meal with great service and unparalleled views.

My friend and I had dinner here on Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. We had a lovely ocean view from our table and our server kindly treated us to a champagne toast to mark the special occasion. We enjoyed the yellowtail sashimi and the arugula goat cheese and roasted mushroom salad, followed by seabass and the roasted brussel sprouts side. To top it all off, we were treated to a complimentary birthday dessert. It was really very kind of Eddie V's to go that extra mile with these nice touches.

We'll keep coming back, even for non-special occasions, but then again, in these times, any night out is a special occasion. Thank you, as always, Eddie V's. Can't wait until next time.

Table for two , at the window, 9 pm, great view of the Pacific Ocean and La Jolla Shores. Jeff was a fabulous server. Started with their signature Smoked Old Fashioned , 12 oz Filet / Sea Bass, Lobster Mashed Potatoes and finished with the Banana’s Foster Dessert. Everything was amazing.

I love this place and the waitress/ bartender Lisa is spectacular. She knows when to come and when to leave us alone. She has a greet natural radar. Professional yet so personal. She enhances the while dining experience. Tonight we had lobster bisque, crab cakes (every time!) and chopped sales and their amazing bread and butter. Liz that with a percent glass of Chardonnay Lisa suggested. Perfection.
