A jewel over the sparkling Pacific Ocean, Eddie V’s Prime Seafood in La Jolla offers 180-degree views of the most magnificent coastal location available in San Diego. Striking architectural lines and chic modern décor are the backdrop for diners seeking a special experience. The La Jolla location is unique because it is located at the old Green Dragon Colony, La Jolla’s founding colony. This is a historic writer’s association in La Jolla. The bar area, raised above the main dining room, features a small fireplace that has been there for centuries.
Eddie V’s La Jolla has an irresistible vibe and see-and-be-seen atmosphere that sets it apart from other local restaurants. At the stunning La Jolla location, guests can choose from a variety of dining experiences, as the restaurant is comprised of two levels that feature different dining and lounge areas. For instance, the V Lounge, as well the indoor and outdoor jazz lounge, enables guests to enjoy live music every night of the week.
The main dining room offers tiered seating, including a row of elevated booths, so guests can enjoy the view from virtually any table, while the adjacent Edgewater patio overlooks the La Jolla sea caves. The Green Dragon Bar and Lounge raised above the main dining room features a small fireplace—a historical landmark that dates back to the Green Dragon Colony, La Jolla’s founding colony. The boardroom-style Prospect Room surveys the shops at La Jolla Village and is available for private dining.
On the upper level, the Waterfront Terrace features covered outdoor dining, while the V Lounge, an indoor and outdoor jazz lounge with a canopy-covered dining area, allows guests to enjoy live jazz and blues every night of the week. Offering a Happy Hour every night of the week, this location has become quite popular with locals, as well as the vacationing visitor. In addition, the restaurant features an award-winning wine list featuring more than 200 selections from regions around the world.
The freshest prime seafood selections, including special seasonal items, are flown in daily from sources spanning the globe. Being a prime seafood house that buys fish from all over the world, the menu is especially unique as a whole.
Guests can opt for local seafood such as yellow fin tuna and giant spot prawns, swordfish from Block Island Maine, Fresh Jumbo Crab meat from the Gulf of Mexico, and seabass from Chile. Some popular examples include sole and sea scallops from Georges Banks in Maine, cold-water lobster tails from Western Australia, yellow fin tuna from the Caribbean, and live oysters from the North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans. For those who prefer the land, Eddie V’s steaks are hand-cut from the finest beef available—always specialty-aged, USDA prime center-cut.
The menu changes four times per year to ensure the most seasonal seafood and produce offerings.
