The views are spectacular!!! Add in the food and OMG. My only complaint was the wait time (to receive our food) and decline in level of service as we waited. We were seated by around 6:25 pm and didn’t receive our main course until well after 8:30 pm. Luckily we had appetizers, otherwise I may not have been as patient. It would have been nice if our sever would have checked in on us more frequently (to keep us informed or express some interest). There were moments when we wouldn’t see or hear for him for 30 mins or more. Almost as though he was purposely avoiding us.

What our experience lacked in service was definitely outweighed by ambiance and delectable food. Thank goodness!!!

I had a belated birthday dinner here with my boyfriend. The ambiance and views are outstanding. The food and service was very good; however my boyfriend’s steak, ordered medium rare, was very rare and had to be sent back. Otherwise, the food was delicious. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.

Lo único fue el servicio excesivamente lento. Los de la mesa de al lado se quejaron. Nosotros íbamos con tiempo para disfrutar y aun así si molesto finalmente la lentitud en la cocina

The service at Eddie V's is impeccable. From the front-desk hostesses to the waiters and bus persons, everything is fast and well done. Outstanding. The food is excellent and most dishes have a little something extra about them. The wedge salad uses heirloom cherry tomatoes and two full pieces of smoked bacon to create a extra-savory version of this steak-house staple. The steaks are tender and perfectly prepared. The rib-eye is exceptionally flavorful. The scalloped potatoes were a rich, indulgent addition. The wine menu features excellent choices by the glass, and the knowledgeable staff is happy to make recommendations. And finally, the tables out on the deck have truly spectacular views of the ocean off La Jolla and the coast to the north. Even on a busy night, the staff at Eddie V's made us feel welcomed and appreciated, and we certainly appreciate them. Thank you!

Went to dinner for our son’s 25th birthday. It was our first time at this location. The place was busy! We had a nice table for 6 near the window. Our server was very friendly! There were quite a few lapses in the service however. Missing utensils, side dishes, and drink refills to name a few. It’s a lovely restaurant but, I expected more given the price.

Our waiter at Eddie V’s was lovely. The cocktails were delicious. The food was quite good, but the portions were larger than we expected which meant we didn’t get to finish everything. The scallops were gritty so didn’t eat many, unfortunately. The view is nice but does not all face west so sunset views are hit or miss.

The food was fantastic. Definitely would recommend eating here. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was that they gave me and my girlfriend crappy seating, but after I asked to be moved, they were accommodating. The service was kinda slow too, but the food was worth the wait.

It was a beautiful evening made even better being seated on the roof top. The view of LaJolla cove was gorgeous and the sun was starting to set. We started with the Burrata but there was a nice selection of fresh oysters on the half shell also. For entrees we ordered the Petrale Sole and the Miso Sea Bass. Both entrees were prepared perfectly! The Sole was nice and crispy on the outside yet moist and sweet inside. The Miso Sea Bass was served in a bowl with a delicate miso broth. Excellent! We had the crab fried rice and brussel sprouts as accompaniments. The crab fried rice was enough to feed 3-4 adults. It was delicious and they weren’t shy with the crab liberally covering the top of the dish. The brussel sprouts were crispy on the exterior and were stir fried in a sweet kimchi sauce with peanuts. Tasty! We also a ordered a wonderful bottle of Pahlmeyer Jayson Chardonnay which parted nicely with the food. Enjoy and be sure to request the roof top seating!

We typically go to Eddie V’s downtown for all of our anniversaries and birthdays and they’ve always given us a nice card and some thing to help us celebrate. La Jolla location doesn’t seem to give the same attention to detail on special events.

Ambiance and food was perfect though!

It was a lovely evening celebrating our 24th anniversary. The atmosphere and food were fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed the halibut and filet with the lobster mashed potatoes and crab rice. We probably ordered too much food! Our drinks took a bit longer to get and the margarita was served in a martini glass and not on the rocks--different!

We mentioned our anniversary when we booked the reservation but no mention of it during our dinner.
