Our waiter seemed in a hurry and for that exact reason he got one of our entree orders wrong. The incorrect order was swordfish and he heard sole. So, that ruined the later part of our dining experience. One of us got their entree and the other didn't, so by the time the correct order came out of the kitchen my spouse was finished eating and had to wait while I ate my entree.

We had been going to Wildfish for years and loved restaurant. Since it became Eddie V’s, it has gone downhill each time and we won’t be back. There were problems with every course. Orders were wrong. Drinks took a long time. Salmon was uncooked and took 20 minutes to have cooked more. Meanwhile everyone else had finished their meals. Manager brought over same piece of salmon in tiny pieces in a pile in the center of a plate with nothing else. No apology. We had to ask for the sauce which was to accompany the salmon.. Overall, a very disappointing experience. Prices are too much for what you get. No prime meat for filet. For the price and size filet should be prime. Best part of meal was shrimp cocktail but they only brought one order instead of the two we ordered. Again had to wait for second order. First time I have written something this negative but it is deserved.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed every minute at Eddie V’s. Chose to go there on a sterling recommendation from my brother. The staff was very knowledgeable, courteous and professional. Sean, our server was phenomenal. The food was cooked perfectly. Do yourselves a favor and treat yourselves to an evening at Eddie V’s.

Truly memorable. Returned following a fantastic experience the previous week to celebrate my 60th birthday and was so happy to dine where I knew it would be outstanding. From the moment we arrived, the team was so gracious, genuine and hospitable. The food and service were amazing.

The food was excellent, crab cakes and pan seared halibut. The noise level was extremely high. There are TV sets throughout with sporting events in progress, very tacky for a fine dining restaurant.

We had an excellent dinner at Eddie V's - Wildfish - Newport Beach. The crab and corn chowder was excellent, perhaps the best I have tasted. The parmesan sole was very good but the norwegian salmon was exceptionally good. The price was somewhat high meaning the value of the meal was only "very good".

The wait staff and hostess were excellent. Food was well prepared and delicious. I love the fact that they DO NOT CHARGE FOR SPLITTING A DINNER. We are "of a certain age" and we just cannot eat big portions but we do like to order an appetizer or salad and main course. We also had dessert to share.

(Oops) but upon entering the Ladies room the floors were dirty and sticky and waste paper baskets were overflowing. Of course we spoke to the manager and he said he would correct it. But still and all.....the dinner hours began at 5:00 and we came at 5:30 so I can't understand how this works.

Been many a time. Generally really like it. This time the food was bland (swordfish) the potatoes runny and service not up to par. It took 15 mins to get wine glasses, the back waiter cleared plates but did not replace settings, etc. overall a C this time.

I bought our dinner at a nonprofit fundraiser and we went Friday night. It was our first time there. Our server, Marissa, was amazing. Also, I had one of the "honeymoon" oysters which was so yummy so, when the manager, Brian stopped by, I told him so and told him I would like another. He brought it out himself and said it was on the house. Then, at the end, we told Marissa we were too stuffed to order dessert but, she came by with a plate which had 2 chocolate cookies, a small scoop of mango sorbet and the most amazing bananas foster butter cake. Definitely will go again and bring friends. Also, the wine we had was really good, too!

Another wonderful meal and date night at Eddie Vs. The fish here is wonderful as I am a huge filet of sole fan and theirs is my favorite. We also love the Chilean seabass and calamari. The warm bread is incredible. We come here once a month at least and always consistent in wonderful food, service and experience.

Delicious dinner with wonderful service (Thanks, Sasha!). Hubby had the special: Brilliantly cooked Filet Mignon (red in center, medium rare) topped with 3 Shrimp Scampi -- delectable garlicy seasoning over asparagus. Hot, tasty and filling. I had Swordfish with pink grapefruit sections, avocado very fresh! Thanks for another great meal; we'll be back soon!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the restaurant. Our waiter, Sean Rowe was the most pleasant person the wait on us. He was very attentive to our needs and always had a smile on his face. He showered us with champagne and a wonderful dessert. Our dinner was very good, but not great and the portions were on the small side. The restaurant was very loud, mainly because of the bar area being so close to where we were seated. Overall, I I would recommend the restaurant to my friends for a special occasion.
