Eddie V’s

 

Seafood is what we’re known for, but our specialty is excellence. Fish arrive daily from pristine waters around the world including Swordfish from Block Island, Scallops from Georges Banks, and Yellow Fin Tuna from the Caribbean. USDA Prime steaks are hand cut and specially aged for over 28 days to ensure peak flavor. Devotion to excellence is the guiding principal in all that we do. From making fresh tortillas by hand daily for our lobster tacos to including a full half pound of Jumbo Lump crab meat in our crab cakes, we strive to go above and beyond in every step of preparation.

 

Fleming’s

 

Founded in 1998 by restaurateurs Paul Fleming and Bill Allen, the first Fleming’s opened in Newport Beach, California. The vision was to create a unique steakhouse experience with an emphasis on generous hospitality, an inviting atmosphere and the very finest aged USDA Prime beef.

In addition to inspired service and expertly prepared Prime Steak, our founders focused on an exceptional selection of wines for Guests to explore. The Fleming’s 100® — our award-winning collection of 100 wines by the glass — was born.

Our restaurant offers a seasonally inspired menu, an award-winning international wine list, knowledgeable and approachable service and a casually sophisticated ambiance that feels comfortable and inviting.
