Surf & Turf has been an American staple and middle class status symbol since the 1960s. Eddie V's Prime Seafood elevates that base concept and couples luxurious seafood with prime cuts of meat, presenting it with class, elegance and pride. We dove into the menu at Eddie V's at its recently opened second San Diego location in The Headquarters at Seaport District, a newly constructed retail and shopping destination that revived San Diego's historic Old Police Headquarters, and we were wowed by a fantastic dining experience.

We enjoyed top quality service as we were guided through the Eddie V's menu, beginning our meal with the steak and lobster tartare ($17). Two mounds of deliciousness sat before us: one - a rich, truffled steak topped with a generous portion of shaved black truffle and parmesan; the other - a refreshing serving of big chunks of lobster topped with avocado, peppers and chives. Each were amazing on their own, but mixed atop a slice of toasted baguette...blissful. This dish will certainly make the cut for SanDiegoVille's Best of 2014 list, and we intend to return during Eddie V's daily happy hour when it's an insane value at $10 for the same serving.
Of course we had to go turf for entree number two. The 16 ounce New York Strip ($48) was seared, seasoned beautifully, and cooked to an ideal medium rare. Chef Brian Moran let the USDA prime cut of meat speak for itself, juicy and delicious.
We were oh-so-full, but that didn't stop us from indulging in desserts. The hot chocolate Godiva cake is the dessert of gods: melted chocolate oozed over a painfully rich cake, served with vanilla bean ice cream. Not to be outdone, Eddie V's version of banana foster is a pyromaniac's dream, as the banana cake sets ablaze to flambé it table side. This exciting dessert comes with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream, my favorite!
daily happy hour, nightly live music and convenient private dining offerings, this restaurant really has it all. Stop by and tell them SanDiegoVille sent you!
