We went for our 19 year anniversary. Friends and family had raved about the service. Usually we go to mastros for special occasions but decided to try Eddie vs. we sat at a booth in the bar because we love live music - it was over the top loud- like couldn’t even hear my husband sitting next to me. The seafood tower was amazing, we shared a filet and a baked pot. Food was very good. Service wasn’t great. Had to ask for water twice, waited 20 minutes for the wine to be brought to the table and when our dinner came they gave us bread plates to “split” our meal. We poured our own wine twice and decided we would give them another try cause the food was good but it didn’t live up to the amazing service we were told about.
Really enjoyed our dinner! Money well spent. We will definitely return.
Best crab cakes! Sea bass was incredible! Will definitely come back next time we are in the Desert. Everything was super fresh. Fast and pleasant service.
Amazing food and service. The house band was REALLY loud but It ended up being a lot of fun. Lobster tacos are a must order.
Great Service and yummy dinner! Thank you Eddie V's for a fabulous evening!
We loved everything about our experience.
Eddie V’s was highly recommended to us by friends who are now living in La Quinta full-time; LQ is our secondary residence (all of us are from Ventura County). Overjoyed that we were able to make reservations this visit. Our dinner experience was a win-win from start to finish. We got to the restaurant early and decided to have drinks in the lounge/bar area; at 5p, tables and bar were about half full. We sat at the bar and service by Cris was great and so were the cocktails—both the Maverick and Mango Ginger Beer were very refreshing and tasty…and the crab cake appetizer, mouthwatering (the Remoulade sauce also made a yummy dip for the warm bread, but the “not just plain” butter is tasty too). We then were seated in the beautiful dining room by one of the lovely hostesses. Our waiter/server David was both personable and professional. His responses to the many questions we had about the menu items were very helpful. The other Eddie V team members were accommodating as well. We also got to meet our friends’ favorite waiter/server, Tony who was as friendly and professional as the other team members who took care of our table. Now for the menu items: everything we ordered was EXCELLENT! We started with Lobster Bisque and Caesar Salad. The entrees we selected were the fresh halibut filet special and the Mediterranean Branzino—both melted in your mouth as we savored each bite. For our side, it was a coin toss between the au gratin cheddar potatoes and famous crab fried rice as a side dish to share—we decided on the rice (figuring there will definitely be more than one “next time” in our future to try many other items). BTW: Loved the fact that David mentioned I had a choice of a cup or bowl of Lobster Bisque and that 1/2 orders of the fried rice was an option. The ambiance of the entire restaurant made the evening an enjoyable experience. Looking forward to many more visits to Eddie V’s!
As always fabulous! Good and service never disappoints.
Everything was wonderful
Everything was very nice, I had the Alaskan Halibut and it was delicious. We were treated to dinner and it’s a good thing as I thought the prices seemed high for the portions
Service was excellent. .
Oysters very fresh
Warn goat cheese salad is a ten
Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious. Excellent service by professional wait staff. Cannot wait to go back!
What a fun and festive place in the desert, along with a great kitchen and incredible staff. Everything about our experience was fantastic!
Had the best dinner and the best service. Our server, Patrick was phenomenal! Will be definitely coming back soon.
The patio they put no effort into- we had people walking by us to exit and there is zero design. The waiter we had came to the table like 12 times- kept interrupting too much. He was training someone but the reality is he needed training too. Big different between this one and the others by the beach. Sashimi appetizer was a joke for the price.
Celebrating 45 years together and the wait staff made it very special!
The food was also excellent, but a bit overpriced though.
Eddie V is consistently delicious and their Servers are Top Shelf. Can’t wait to go back!
20th wedding anniversary
Great as always .
Great restaurant extremely good food and great service always a great opportunity to dine at this restaurant
The food was simply excellent. The service was VERY SLOW. The manager comped us for our entire dinner. So much thanks!
What a wonderful dinner Sunday night we had. We sat on the outside patio and it was just enough social distancing, quiet and peaceful. The service was excellent by Matt our waiter Who gave us attention when needed but was not pushy at all. We took our time through our appetizers through Entrée and he was attentive for our cocktails. The food is always excellent I had the sole. We had side dishes one had steak the other had seafood and everyone was happy with our meal and service.
Lobster tacos are the best!
Great service! Manager Patrick and server Christian we’re outstanding! Went above and beyond. Great happy hour menu and specials! Awesome experience
Bit busier than last time and service a bit slower.
All food came out at once was disappointed by me.
Oyster, soup , shashimi, salad. Then came the cocktail that should have been served before any food !!
We have a very nice time. We requested the bar. We had sat in the bar last time we were there a couple weeks ago. However, we were put so close to the band we were unable to carry on a conversation
What a gem this place is …. I e had the best service ever . We meet Rudy , Gloria the wine manager & our lovely server - Christina . We will definitely be back soon . Can’t wait .
Service was excellent from the reception, bartender, servers and most importantly the waiter (Ali).
This was our first time dining at Eddie V's Restaurant. The service provided by Marco and his staff, was outstanding. Marco made sure our celebration for my Dad's 85th Birthday was extra special. He brought each of us a glass of champagne to make a toast to the Birthday "Boy".
Everyone enjoyed their food; from the appetizers (Lobster Tacos and Yellowtail Sashimi), to the main courses of Jumbo Gulf Shrimp, Branzino and Scallops. Then we finished off the meal with Bananas Foster Butter Cake for desert, which was absolutely amazing!
Thanks again, Marco!!!
Everything was perfect
Consistently good service, great food and a beautiful atmosphere. Can be a touch noisy when the room is full.
Wonderful experience! Food, ambience, and service were all spectacular!
We started to sit inside but it was so loud! We moved outside much better!
We dined there the night before and Sean made it such a fun experience we thought why not 2 nights in a row! Unfortunately Sean was not working again. The meal was just hit as good. Food wasn’t as yummy lacked seasoning! Waiter assumed we would want champagne with our dessert even after I had ordered an non alcoholic beverage with dinner. Waited. Overall if that had been our first time we would t have made a point to return.
Great service, outdoor seating and delicious food. The filet was one of the best I’ve had!
There is free parking behind the restaurant. 5pm reservation and we were seated right away. The waiter may have interrupted a few too many times, but he was very friendly and attentive. The food was quite good, but a bit rich, with not very many lighter options. interesting cocktails…I tried the blue diamond (an homage to the Hope diamond)…on the sweet side but very complex and fun. The decor is glam (sort of “Vegas-y”, but fun). An old-school night out. Oh yeah, the bananas Foster cake was delicious!
Old friends cellbtaing
Anniversary dinner at one of our favorite spots. The table was specially decorated and the entire staff wished us a happy day.
Food and drinks were excellent as usual.
Service was impeccable, especially AJ.
This was our first trip to Eddie V's and they didn't disappoint. The staff was friendly, the drinks were great. My wife had the sea bass which was buttery and enough for two. I had the salmon prepared perfectly. The sides (crab fried rice and brussels sprouts) were great.
