First impressions... Disappointing. Looked very run down. Carpet was stained, torn, worn out, and gave a really bad, tired look to the inside lower level, and upstairs level. Even the outside patio areas need refreshing. We actually almost left...

BUT, the food was delicious! View, beautiful, snd service was good!!

We visited Eddie V's restaurant to celebrate a birthday and we had an amazing dining experience. We were pleasantly greeted as we walked in the door and the outstanding service continued throughout the evening. Our server did an outstanding job welcoming us and had a cheerful and pleasant demeanor which certainly enhanced our evening tremendously. She was attentive, thoughtful and timely with our requests. We began our dining experience with oysters, and crab cakes which was cooked to perfection and the flavor truly amazing. Next, we had Caesar salad and lobster bisque for our second course. For our main course, we had South African lobster, crab legs, sea bass, crab fried rice and asparagus. For desert, we had Godiva chocolate cake and a complimentary dessert for my friend’s birthday. I would highly recommend dining at Eddie V's in La Jolla and plan to visit there again soon.

It was a great experience. The staff is very professional and its definitely not somewhere to go if you want to be obnoxiously loud/party. Its a quiet romantic dinner vibe for sure. The food was amazing best caesar ive honestly ever had and the yellowtail sashimi chefs kiss. However, the steak we told the waiter Medium and it was waaaay over cooked to the point where i could confidently say it was in between medium well and well done. It was still tasty tho! If ur gonna go there i suggest all of their seafood options and a nice chilled white wine. :)

Went for restaurant week and all of the food was great but my filet mignon was over cooked. I ordered it medium rare and it came out more on the medium side. Other than that, great spot!

We always have a great time at Eddie V‘s. Dinner reservations at 8 PM, we stayed until almost 11 because it was so nice to be out, in public, at a restaurant, listening to the ocean, enjoying the beautiful San Diego weather, and each others company. Really appreciated the restaurant not rushing us out of there. Haven’t seen my friends in six months, so it was really great to just relax, catch up, laugh, and eat amazing food. Thank you Eddie V’s for another wonderful evening.

The bus boy threw the plates on the table, and wasn’t friendly. Our waiter was very nice but rushed. It just wasn’t a pampering experience we have gotten used to with this Eddie Vs. it lacked the luster.

After hearing excellent reviews from friends who enjoyed Eddie V, we decided to celebrate our anniversary there. What a pleasant and happy surprise to be led to the corner table above the ocean and see the table decorated with red rose petals. The Korean glaze calamari was one of the best we’ve had. My husband’s steak was perfectly seasoned and excellent. My sole was delicate and delicious. Our anniversary dessert plate was special and was a lovely take on bananas foster. It was a flambé butter cake topped with banana, vanilla bean ice cream and two outstanding chocolate gooey centered cookies; the best dessert I’ve had in a long time. The service was outstanding. We’ll definitely go back. Eddie V will be one of the fine dining restaurants on our rotation.

Eddie V's is known for prime seafood but if I had to recommend one dish, it must be the filet mignon. Perfectly cooked medium with proper seasonings. I have traveled for business over 30 years and visited countless steakhouses for business dinners. Eddie V's La Jolla filet mignon is in the top five percent of how to prepare this dish. My wife had the sea bass, also very good. Also highly recommend the Maine lobster tacos, delicious. Lastly, the smoked Old Fashioned is excellent. We will be back for special occasions for sure.

The food is excellent, but they took a lot of time for serving, not only to start but also in between the courses. And I have to say that is not the first time to happens. They have a problem in the kitchen for sure.

Love the view from Eddie V's and the food is always great. It was my sister and brother-in-law's anniversary and the server brought out a bananas foster with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate, on the house, which they loved. It was a great experience....as usual. :-)

Even with the covid restrictions, sitting outside and enjoying the view of the Pacific ocean, looking up the coast was a treat. The outside seating (covered and open) next to the firepit was wonderful. The food was outstanding but a little limited due to the restrictions, but still a good selection. As always on a Saturday night, La Jolla was busy, but we did manage to find street parking about a block away, which was a very short walk.

I’ve celebrated many occasions at Eddie V‘s over the years. This restaurant is simply amazing from the quality of their staff and the quality of the food. I love this location because of the ocean views and great La Jolla vibe that comes with it. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to have a great meal with great vibes.
