“Very Disorganized”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

We had a disappointing experience. We made a reservation for a specific table (which they gave away). The gave us a nice one near the window, but then the food order came at different times and incorrectly. The Manager came to our table twice to apologize and "fix" the problems. They gave us a free dessert and complimentary entree, but the overall experience was not positive.
Hope others have better luck

Very nice restaurant. The view is gorgeous, the food very good, but the place is very noisy.

“Great food, service and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

Had New Years eve dinner at Eddie V's and it couldnt have been better. The restaurant has multiple levels and enclosed outside seating with views of La Jolla cove.We sat outside. Even in winter we were very comfortable. Kyle was our server and make sure you ask for him. We wanted seafood (though I'd heard their steaks were great) cause everything is fresh. They dont even have a freezer. Oysters were flown in from Massachusetts. Sweet, plump. Crab cake was as big and moist as any Ive had. Was thinking about getting pricy lobster special but Kyle said while very good, portion wasnt that big so I opted for sole. Good choice. Also had beef carpacio- Ive eaten this dish a lot and hands down the best Ive ever had. Barely seared and perfectly seasoned. . Prices were less that what I expected- generally $25-32 entree though some steaks more I think.will go back next time in La Jolla

“Perfect Service, Fab Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

My husband and I happened onto Eddie V's the night we arrived in La Jolla. It was a solid-gold find--we throughly enjoyed the marvelous food and the impeccable service. Though we didn't have a reservation, we were shown to a table without having to wait. While our booth in the bar area was a bit noisy, the service was so wonderful that we didn't mind in the least having to talk a bit louder to hear one another. While trying to decide what to order, one of the staff walked by and commented on the wonderful wine we'd ordered--the gentlemen then made suggestions about his favorite items on the menu--we took his advice and ordered the encrusted sole and the grouper entree. Both were stellar--as were the pot stickers and the side dishes of a casserole of fresh corn and another side dish of rice with crab meat. Everything from start to finish was top notch at Eddie V's--though the meal was expensive we didn't mind paying for food that was memorable and service to match.

“Average by NYC standards”

The food was OK, and service quite good. It's too darn dark for an 81 year old to read the menu! Get some accent lighting! We used our iPhone for a light source.
