Not as fancy as the Eddie V’s in Fort Lauderdale. The decor is kind of dated.

Celebrated my son’s College Graduation and our server Brian made it extra special. Food was delicious & service was exceptional. This location is better than the two in San Diego regarding the food.

We visited Eddie V's restaurant in Newport Beach and we had a nice dining experience. Our waitress 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 crab cakes which was cooked to perfection and the flavor truly amazing. Next, we had the steak tartare for our second course. For our main course, we had the South African lobster, Chilean sea bass, crab fried rice, truffle Mac and cheese, ribeye steak, and asparagus. For dessert, we had the banana foster butter cake and the Classic Crème Brûlée. The ambiance is different from the La Jolla restaurant, nevertheless, I would highly recommend dining at Eddie V's in Newport Beach and plan to visit there again soon.

My husband and I came here after the pandemic, our waiter is attentive, service was great, everything we ordered was good except for my husband main course the sea bass was very salty, soy sauce needs to be diluted and chefs should work on this.

Eddie V's nails it every time. Super friendly knowledgeable service, excellent food. We took two friends for their birthdays (both first-timers to Eddie V's) and they were both super impressed. We ordered: oysters, yellowtail sashimi, crab cake, sea bass, scallops, filet mignon, and crab fried rice. All our faves! The MUST-orders are the sea bass, crab fried rice, scallops, and crab cake for us. We love to sit on their outdoor side patio and get a later evening reservation - the vibe is a little more energetic out there and we love it.

Eddie V's has opened up a majority of their booths and the service and food are just as good as before. My Halibut was cooked just right as was the Salmon and Shrimp which were ordered at our table. The only thing missing was my wife's favorite, Tuna Tartar although the Steak Tartar was a good substitute. The shaken at the table martinis made the evening and with us celebrating a birthday we shared one desert on the house! We will be back.

This was our first visit, and we were highly impressed. Excellent seafood and steak, yummy beet salads, giant shrimp with "atomic horseradish" and fabulous desserts and cocktails. And we received outstanding service from Laura, who was witty and friendly and guided us through the menu and wine list with ease. She was attentive and never made us feel rushed.

This is an excellent steak abs seafood restaurant. Our server Laura was amazing. She had everything time amazingly and knew exactly when to check on us and always had the beverages fill up and provided excellent recommendations. All of us had the ribeye steak and two of us added a crust to it, one is a blue cheese crust and another with Parmesan and horseradish.

We measure all sea bass on Eddie V’s Wildfish’s version. It’s absolutely the perfect dish. Only 290 calories too!!

Our waiter was fantastic and even gave us a free “taste” of a bananas foster butter cake. Crazy good! We would have ordered but are trying to stick to a low calorie intake. (For now) lol

We will be back and highly recommend for a great overall experience.

Constantly a great place to go for a solid meal. You can't go wrong picking this for a special occasion, or any evening. When my wife thinks of Eddie Vs she thinks of the Chilean Sea Bass as it is very wonderful and special, but really we haven't had anything that wasn't outstanding.

Birthday, meal was great. The old fashion is legit, steak awesome, the seafood platter was too big for two people but the oysters were amazing. Service was great, it took awhile between meals though so would recommend preparing ahead of time, we’d come back for sure.

My husband and I were in Newport Beach for our wedding anniversary and chose Eddie V's as there is a new one we have been waiting to open near us in Manhattan Beach.
This experience was amazing. We arrived at our table to rose pedals and a card saying Happy Anniversary at our table. The waiter was amazing. Extremely respectful and energetic and helped us every step of the way. The food --- DELICIOUS and beautiful ---.
We can't wait to visit again.
Thank you to everyone at Eddie V's.
Cheers!
