Slow to be attended to as we waited without water or a hello- when a waiter noticed menus laying on the white linen he was concerned found our server who was coming on and we were 30 minutes early. Our first and second round of cocktails were on the house - the salad and chowder arrived with freshly baked sourdough really high end quality. Lobster and filet were generous portions- manager was at our table checking in us three times we were extremely well attended to. Meal was a “ please give my compliments to the chef” and it was a lovely evening! I seldom give five stars but tonight they earned it

This is our second time in two weeks! We absolutely love this restaurant — great atmosphere, amazing food and service. The cosmos and martinis are well poured. We are making our way down the menu and so far we love it all — shrimp cocktail is amazing, oysters from east coast, scallops, Bronzino and butter fish. Also yellow tail sashimi was amazing. Save room for dessert and have the apple cobbler — enormous but best flavor ever.

The food was fantastic!! We were unfortunate to have a server who was having a bad day. Very rude. It was actually shocking to have an experience like that. Luckily, after discussing the situation with the restaurant manager Kyle, he was extremely helpful and professional. A bad experience turned into a good experience after all. Thanks Kyle. We will definitely come back.

All was good but we asked for the dessert to go and when we got home it was NOT included. We were upset.

It’s too bad for the service because we love wild fish. The service was terrible we were seated without menus and took about 20 minutes to order a drink or food and we had to ask for a waitress.

Simply try e best!! We return here often. And we are never disappointed. Yes it’s in the higher end of price- but the quality and service are worth it. The black cod is probably my favourite. Accompanied by the crab fried rice. Followed by the best s’mores dessert I have ever had ( enough for 2)
Cant wait to return!

My date and I celebrated Valentines dinner at Eddie Vs. it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Our server was great. We both felt like we were important. I had the Parmesan crusted sole. It was amazing! We shared the arugula goat cheese salad. It was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for normal dinners as well as special dates. Very happy with this restaurant and we will be going there again.

My wife and I come here every few months or so. The last 2 times have been okay. We were used to Eddie V's being a lot better. The hostess was rude when I asked for a table away from the restroom entrance. It was 5pm and there were many tables open, but as I said ...rude. The manager, Brian, used to come by the table. But we haven't seen the manager the last 2 times. Food was good though, and so was the service. Just used to Wildfish being a higher level experience.

Our waiter, Cody, was beyond amazing! He truly made up the good portion of our experience, outside of the food. Cody was funny, charismatic, energetic and just made the Valentine’s Dinner Date that much better. Plus, the food was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and if you do go, ask for Cody. He will not disappoint!

Haven’t been here in awhile, not sure why. But we introduced some friends to this magnificent place. Absolutely every dish was excellent, but stars of our show were the Crab fried rice and the Chilean Sea-bass Special. Finally the pineapple upside down cake is an absolute must! Service was impeccable too. Definitely won’t wait so long until our next visit.

The lobster mashed potatoes are decadently divine
The service was excellent.
Loved the crab legs and my friend really enjoyed her scallops.
A little too noisy is the only downside

The waiter that served us was a professional. Excellent manner and knowledge of the menu. Operating management was aware of some issues and made positive accommodations before I raised them. Food was exceptional. I'm fortunate to travel extensively and the food quality and variety at this restaurant was notable. All in an excellent experience for a romantic evening. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Always a great place to eat, but they had an off night. Bartenders were in the weeds - walked away from the bar after 15 minutes of waiting. I enjoy a long meal, but the dinner pace was slow. Food was good. We’ll revisit in the future.

My wife and I have visited Eddie V’s on special occasions over the past 10 years, and while the name has changed, it remains one of our favorite restaurants in OC. This year we celebrated our anniversary and were welcomed with a card and roses. Our waiter, Chris, was amazing. Although not on the dessert menu, he accommodated our request of a pineapple upside down cake (our usual), which was mouthwatering delicious. We highly recommend Eddie V’s. The food is outstanding, the atmosphere pleasant, the wine selection varied, and the price matched the value of the service.

Excellent appetizers, great filet, unique flavorful desserts. Only head scratcher was a non special Manhattan cocktail at $22 - I can only imagine what it would be if I specified a particular bourbon or rye

Dinner was great! I didn’t tell our server I recently used to work for Darden (shh), she did everything by the book. Everything was delivered in a timely manner, she was polite and made good conversation and made it look effortless. I could tell the restaurant was packed but our service didn’t suffer at all. Thank you to our server!

Steak was way over cooked took a extra hour to be seated as well. Asked for dressing on the side of my salad and it came out fully dressed. Was over all a very bad experience I will never come to this location again. I’ve been in Orlando , and Houston and absolutely incredible meals. This location is not up to standard for the name of Eddie vs. There is plenty of high end steak houses in Newport Beach that are incredible and worth every penny! Don’t waist your time. Also contacted customer service no response.
