This was our first trip to La Jolla, and my wife and I tried to have dinner at George's at the Cove, which was recommended by our hotel's concierge. It was a Saturday and George’s was very crowded, so we decided to give Eddie V’s a try. We were very happy that we did. The outside seating is on the roof, so the view of La Jolla Cove is beautiful. We started with a drink at the bar where the very friendly bartender gave us a little history about the area. We finished our drinks just when they started serving dinner, so we were able to get a table outside overlooking the water. The wait staff was wonderful. Our waiter gave us a thorough overview of the menu, made some excellent recommendations, and was extremely attentive throughout the meal. He checked on us several times to make sure we were comfortable as it was a cool (by San Diego standards) afternoon. The menu focuses on seafood, although they do offer limited steak and chicken options. I started with the Maine Lobster Tacos, which were outstanding. My wife enjoyed a mixture of two types of oysters on the half shell. For our main courses we had Pacific Swordfish and Maine Lobster. Both were delicious. For a side, try the Truffled Macaroni and Cheese. We finished with coffee and dessert while watching the sunset. It was an excellent meal with a view to match.
