I chose this place for a very special birthday dinner for my husband. It did not disappoint! The food was outstanding, the view was excellent and Kevin, our waiter was one of the best I have had in a very long time. We sat outside but were not cold, the heaters were perfect. It is pricey but worth every penny.
It was lovely and great food and service
We had the best time! Our server, Aaron, was exceptional and wanted to make sure our evening was everything we wanted it to be!
Eddie V’s was our first choice to celebrate our 40th anniversary and the experience was beyond our expectations. We were taken to the rooftop dining area and to the best sunset view table with fresh red rose petals on the white linen.
Laura was our excellent server, gracious, knowledgeable, intuitive, and friendly. My wife has diet restrictions (no gluten) and Eddie V’s had a special menu for her with many wonderful selections. Every dish was perfect. The presentation, flavors, portions, course timing; all just right.
Wonderful memories were made last night and we will definitely return to Eddie V’s on our next trip to La Jolla. Thanks for such a special evening.
This was a fabulous experience, on every level! Ambience, food, service was all amazing. We normally don’t enjoy such fancy dining, but this changed our minds. We were SO impressed and had a most wonderful time!!!
Positive: Best Location in La Jolla ... that has not changed!
Opportunity: Experience falling short of pre Covid Dining Experience ... hoping restaurant is able to resume the high standards that use to make it the best restaurant in town
Food is amazing, service is superb and the view is out of this world. Hands down my favorite place to eat in La Jolla.
Exquisite! From the view to the food to the servers. It is a must if you are ever in San Diego!
Great experience overall. Food, service, location & view!
Excellently prepared fish. Our server was Rebecca and she could not have been better. She did everything possible to make our dining experience very pleasant.
Splendid views of the Pacific Ocean, La Jolla Cove, La Shores Beach and Torrey Pines cliffs. Beautiful setting in a small porch area with just a few tables.
Couldn’t be happier with the set up, ambiance, and incredible service. Very attentive to make sure we were happy. Love.
Will be back very soon.
Fantastic from start to finish! Best view, and everyone was delightful. So nice to see people out laughing and dining again. The seafood tower was delicious, and so too were the lobster tails. Couldn’t have been a better experience.
Amazing first experience at Oceanview restaurant!!! Outstanding service….. #1 General manager! Can’t wait to return!!!
Thank you so much for everything! We had a great time!
Perfect evening for our 25th anniversary. The staff at Eddie V’s in La Jolla were so friendly and our waitress, Ashlynn, was exceptional! Food was amazing, as expected, as was the view. We let them know in advance that it was our anniversary and were treated to a special welcome and some nice extras too!
Eddie V’s doesn’t disappoint. All aspects of the evening were extraordinary. We ordered the truffle Mac, augratin potatoes, filet, asparagus and Brussel sprouts. Absolutely delicious.
Birthday dinner for my mom.
Came here for the first time to celebrate my mom's birthday after learning about the hype with their seafood dishes. Everything was an incredible experience, starting from our server to the complimentary cake dessert we received for the birthday.
First off: cleanliness is a big thing during this time and Eddie V's made sure to make everything was clean and sanitized. Thank you for that.
Party of 3 and we ordered for ourselves the half dozen oysters to share. Although the picture is not provided here, I've gotta tell you: fresh, flavorful, and delicious.
Last but definitely not least, our meals: Chilean Sea Bass, Georges Banks Scallops, Norwegian Salmon, and the Parmesan Sole.
Each dish was cooked with the utmost care and seasoned with proper spices. No fishy/old smell coming from the seafood we ordered. We had a wonderful time enjoying the various flavors and texture each meal provided.
The end dessert hit the spot well with some mint dark chocolate chip cookies and Bananas Foster Cake.
10/10 would come again.
Did not have a great experience. Was cold the entire time despite asking for the heat lamps to be turned on. They were not working. The floor heater was also not working. Neither the server nor his assistant informed us that they could not get them working and did not offer me anything else. I had to ask for the manager.
We were originally seated outside but the guano bad smell was too intense. Margo was great and she got us a great window seat! Kitchen was slow!
Fantastic food, service, and view. One of my favorite all-time restaurants.
Eddie V's wasn't bad, it just wasn't great! In the past few months, I have had the pleasure of eating at Cafe Monarch and Dominicks in AZ. These restaurants have amazing service and the food was incredible. Eddie V's is priced very similar to these restaurants but not near the same level of service or food quality.
If you’re looking for a great meal in San Diego this is the place! Perfect for a romantic dinner or any celebrations. The food and service well deserved a 10/10!
Outstanding service with one of the best views and ambiance in the area.
The ocean view is spectacular, and our server, Angela was outstanding. Food was very good, but not remarkable. We shared a wedge salad, and that was great. The calamari was an enormous serving, and good, but drowned in a hot and sweet sauce. Would have rather had the sauce of the side so we could use the amount we wanted and still have the calamari batter crispy. I had the branzino, and while tasty, it was not memorable, and the portion size was so large I had to leave more than half - an unfortunate waste! Hubby had the shrimp with crab and enjoyed that very much, but there were several pieces of shell, so that was off=putting. All in all a good, not great experience. However we were treated to a lovely dessert, since we mentioned to our server that we had originally planned on being there for our wedding anniversary in Dec, but did not travel because of covid. That touch was much appreciated.
View was amazing. Service was impeccable. Every thing was delicious. If your interested the menu even has calories listed.
The food was delicious and our server, Aaron, was outstanding.
Beautiful view, our server Julie was wonderful. We ordered two entrees to share- scallops and 1/2 lb. crab legs. We were disappointed to find that 1/2 lb equated to 2 crab legs for $32. We expected more and it didn’t look like the 2 crab legs were 1/2 lb. Other than that, it was a nice dining experience.
Service was great! Can’t wait to go back. Food was delicious and the cocktails are perfect for brunch.
Very nice. Food good. Service wonderful.
Exquisite food and service every time I eat at Eddie V’s . I love it !
Great menu- wonderful views from upper deck, good service, food prepared perfectly. Always a favorite.
Lobster fried rice and yellowtail are must try! Our waitress Laura was incredible!
Great crab cakes!
During Covid we got engaged but didn’t really get a chance to celebrate with a night on the town. Now that we’re all vaxed we felt safer going out and booked a date night at Eddie V’s La Jolla. When we reserved, the only option available was outdoor seating. And it couldn’t have been a more perfect evening for it. Weather was beautiful, we got the table at the furthest end of the lower patio, so we got a great view. We indulged and it was phenomenal! The truffle Mac & cheese was tasty. The scalloped potatoes were delicious. Our steak and sole entrees were amazing. Our server, Eric, was outstanding! He was Johnny on the spot with cocktails (get the 24kt, yum), status of our order, suggestions, and just a downright pleasant attitude. He was a pleasure to be around and just awesome (give that guy a raise, he raises the bar on service). He asked if it was a special occasion and we explained that we were celebrating love and our engagement. As a total surprise, he brought out a sweet treat with congratulations for us (caramelized butter cake with pecan ice cream and bananas foster). Incredible and just the sweetest gesture! Eric was the bow that tied off our exceptional date night. Thank you for making a night out even more special! We can’t wait to come back!
This was a special occasion dinner (wife's birthday) at Eddie V's. It was, quite simply, fantastic. From the moment we walked in until the car was waiting for us at the curb, we enjoyed every bit of the evening. Our table was perfect, we were able to see the sunset as we finished our complimentary dessert. Every appetizer (oysters, crab cake) and the entree's (seabass, roasted shrimp with crab) and the side (crab fried rice) were all fabulous. If you want to have a special occasion meal, Eddie V's should be at the top of your list.
We went for our anniversary. They did a great job making the evening special for us. Our server was patient, attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was perfect. We love coming here for our special occasions.
Loved it! Will be going back soon! 😄
Never a bad experience! My favorite restaurant for any occasion. Food, atmosphere, and customer service always outstanding! My waiter today named Eric made my dining experience once again Excellent!! Thank you a loyal customer.
