Vigilucci's Seafood & Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Thank you so much! I thought it was a nice touch to add a signed Anniversary card by each of the employees ! That was so thoughtful! From the host to the waitresses, etc., everyone was very professional and attentive. Again, thank you very much for making this a very special evening!
The view of the setting sun was beautiful. The staff was great from the valet parking attendant to the hostess to the wait staff. The only disappointment was that the management did not stop by the table ( mine nor others) to ensure the dining experience was what one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.
When I made the reservation I specifically stated that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. As we were being seated I mentioned it to the hostess and then again to our server in anticipation that the restaurant would acknowledge our special occasion in some way. Unfortunately, my request was ignored. Vigilucci’s did absolutely nothing to make my husband’s special day memorable.
Additionally, we were disappointed to find that there were no dishes appropriate for vegetarians. The entrees either had meat or seafood and the waitstaff advised us that the chef was unwilling to make any substitutions.
All in all, it was an unfortunate, expensive experience that offered no value for us and our guests.
Once we got over the sticker shock of the menu prices, the meal was quite nice. I know this place has great ocean views and wonderful food but $ 250 for a meal for three was a bit more than we had in mind since there was only one $ 60 bottle of wine and no coffee or desserts. Lovely place for a special occasion especially if you can visit at or near sunset.
Terrific Halibut 'special', but when you're lunching with a friend you haven't seen in 4 years you forget little things like asking the waiter what the 'special' halibut cost--$38 !..or interrogate him after he asks you 'and for your salad we have....etc etc" and you assume during conversation and a beautiful sunny day by the ocean that the salad must surely come with it..nope $10.50 more....so for food quality-great; for charging $5 for 'valet' parking when the farthest car is going to be 15 yards from where you're standing? huh? and for never throwing a price out there on dinner priced luncheon food---I'd keep my eyes and ears open if I were you.
The hostess was borderline rude. Took awhile to even acknowledge that we were standing right there in front of her. Requested a view with my reservation weeks before we arrived. She gave us probably the worst view in the restaurant until I requested another table. Our waiter was awesome as was the food he recommended. Overall, great evening except for the interaction with the hostess.
It was quite expensive for what we ate: 4 people, 4 salads, a bottle of Pelligrino and coffee came to a little over $100 after tip + $5 for valet parking. The salads were mediocre. The pear and raspberry salad had 4 very thin small slices of pear and 2 raspberries. The Caesar was not cut, with 5 croutons and a healthy amount of warm calamari (delicious). A pet peeve of mine is when the restaurant staff clears the table when some have finished and some are still eating. 3 in our party of 4 we're finished and the guy clearing the table took everything off, including the bread basket, except for my plate and silverware, since I was still eating. I felt rushed. The restaurant is right on Carlsbad Blvd, and the traffic was very loud. We sat outside. Our friends from Ohio loved the view, but we, as locals, who have enjoyed restaurants such as Jakes in Del Mar, were disturbed by the loud motorcycles and roaring engines of cars and trucks.
We plan to visit again since we got together for lunch during restaurant week on a beautiful sunny day but hab mixed reviews.We sat at a quiet table in a corner inside with views of the ocean. Service was professional. The restaurant was only half full so conversation was easy and enjoyable. We all ordered caesar’s salad since the baked potato soup with cheddar and bacon sounded very heavy. Salad was very good. The entrees varied.The chicken Marsala as well as prime rib sandwich were well prepared. The pasta was quite ordinary. We ordered dessert as well as espresso and cappuccino. The tiramisu was excellent and the coffees well made. We’ll come back and order different entrees. They have a good selection of Italian wines. Not sure if they would be a good value if it were not restaurant week.
This is my favorite restaurant ❣️ The food is incredible. Had the macadamia crusted salmon which was perfect. My friend and I especially LOVE Daniel to serve us. Although we found out he mostly works evenings now and we always go at lunchtime. However all their servers are superb. Very notable selection of fine wine 🍷. I appreciate they will bring you a couple samples instead of ordering something you may not like. The ocean view is beautiful. Will definitely be back again soon.
We dined here to celebrate my dad's birthday. The ambiance is always spectacular here, which is why I always enjoy dining at this VG spot. I ordered the crab cake appetizer, Cioppino for my entree, and apple tart dessert. The Cioppino was EXCELLENT. The portion size was so grand, that I was able to enjoy my dinner for round 2 the next day. The waiter was attentive without being too disruptive during our meal. A few staff members acknowledged that it was my dad's birthday, and even went so far as to give him a birthday card and creme brulee dessert on the house. I look forward to enjoying more meals at Vigilucci's Seafood & Steakhouse in Carlsbad.
We four ladies enjoyed a wonderful SDRW dinner. We brought our own wine along with a bottle for the kitchen staff. Their menu along with our wines were a wonderful match.
Two had the filet and two had the short rib. They were very tasty...cooked to perfection...were plated beautifully and pared well with our wines. Vigilucci's Seafood and Steak consistently provides great food and sunset is superb!
We were very pleasantly surprised at what we found on our first trip to this restaurant. ALL seats have a beautiful view of the ocean. The food was impeccable. The wait staff was fabulous. I cannot say enough. If we lived close, we would be eating there all the time!
