My fiancé and I treated Mom on her special day and were very pleased with the food and service. Crab Cake appetizer was meaty and very flavorful. The Norwegian Salmon, Bronzino, and the Filet Mignon were all prepared expertly as expected. Service was very good as always. Will be back soon!

Eddie V's was great. We were seated quickly to the outside patio with an amazing view of the ocean. Our server Lisa was phenomenal. She gave us great input while being funny and friendly. The appetizers were brought out quickly. The main course was extremely delicious and cooked perfectly. The dessert was the best part! The only downside is we wanted the chocolate lava cake but that item was out. Overall wonderful experience!

we enjoyed our dinner experience. however, some of the dishes were too salty or too powerful masking the natural flavors of the nice fish they serve. We also miss the happy hour that is no longer offered. that was a much better value than the current fully priced dinners

We spent a lovely weekend in La Jolla where my boyfriend and I made it a point to go to our favorite restaurant, Eddie V’s. We’ve never had a bad meal or experience there. The service and food are always impeccable.

Love, love, love Eddie V's. We had a beautiful table furthest out on the patio with an unobstructed view of the ocean. There was a nice fire next to us and we enjoyed a nice meal together accompanied by a bottle of wine. Had the yellowtail sashimi to start, scallops and Chilean sea bass as entrees and the decadent bananas fosters to finish. Will definitely come again and certainly, if you have not been, this is a spot not to be missed. Enjoy!

Eddie V's never disappoints. It was my girlfriend's birthday lunch and everything was top-notch: oysters were super fresh, branzino was excellent and jump shrimp was to die for. We even get a birthday desert on the house. Will definitely come back!

Enjoyed everything for the most part with the exception of my filet mignon being way over cooked. I am not one to sit and food back and didn’t but I ordered my filet medium and it was well done with no sign of pink and this caused it to be very dry unfortunately

Although this particular time I was only there for drinks and appetizers with an old friend, I was recognized and greeted by name (as always), service was exceptional and the food was perfect. Best restaurant in La Jolla by far. Not even close.

Visit 2, April 2021:

Returned 2 months later & after chat with nice DM Derek. We got a nice patio table facing water this time, fortunately. They clearly knew we were returning...

Lovely & fun & funny Eric & Marcus were our servers.

We shared 2 Apps that were again stellar (Lobster Tacos & crab-stuffed shrimp) & a very so-so overdressed salad (arugula & “stuff”).

Steaks good quality but my thick Filet Mignon was WAY undercooked, ordered as “Medium Plus” (no raw or heavy pink throughout) but served clearly Medium Rare...heavy pink & RARE/RAW center (yes, too thick, so they need to cook it in halves). Yes, I ate the medium exterior portions only & took the inside 50% home to cook more for dinner the next night. I cooked it as sliced to “Medium Plus” in 1 minute. Yum. The side of “healthy” spinach had WAY too much oil or butter in it, way better once we DRAINED it, nearly a cup of fluid! Not healthy. Yuck.

Shared dessert Choc with vanilla very good, as was their just brewed hot coffee.

Great food and service. It was our anniversary and they gave us complementary champagne toasts and desserts. My steak was perfect. My wife’s Hong Kong Sea Bass was good but too much soy/ginger broth for her liking. Made it a little too salty for her pallet. All in all it was a great dining experience

Went there to celebrate our 5th Anniversary. Sat on the upper level outside. Got an amazing table with an even amazing view. The restaurant was beautiful, the staff were awesome, the food was great! When I booked the reservation, I entered that it was our anniversary. First the host wished us a happy anniversary, then the waiter immediately brought is a complimentary glass of champagne. And after dinner we were presented a beautiful complimentary dessert. So kind and thoughtful. We will definitely be coming back.

Thank you!

Beautiful view from outdoor dining area - only complaint is in spite of making reservations 3 weeks in advance, and the fact it was our anniversary (notated on the reservation), we got a table tucked in the very back with bird droppings on the couch. A couple that came in 5 minutes after us got the very front view to the water. What does it take to get a nice view like that??? Food was excellent except for the Caesar salad. They have their own twist to the Caesar salad that isn't very good at all. I didn't send it back - but I wouldn't recommend it at all.

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.
