Vigilucci's Seafood & Steakhouse
Fantastic grass fed filet!!!!! Great waitress too!
I had been here for a happy hour in the bar but never sat for a full meal. All of the party’s meals were exceptional and perfectly prepared from fish and steak to pasta.
Our waiter Chris (sp?) was amazingly attentive. We were there to celebrate our 35th anniversary with our 3 boys. So glad we chose this restaurant, as we’re from Arizona and had no idea!
Great food and service
The food was delicious. There were three of us and we all had the Chilean Seabass. It was so good and did not disappoint. The service was very good too. We sat on the patio for lunch and although it was overcast, we still had a great time and enjoyed the beach view. We will be back!
Wonderful. A little pricey but worth it. The food, service and ambiance were all 5 Star.
Really special restaurant right on the beach and Great tasting food!
Love the setting and the food. We travel from Phoenix, AZ on my wife's birthday to have dinner here.
the food was delicious although the crab cakes were room temp. Great seat location. They were very accommodating in adding extras to our entree.
Great food, great location. A bit spendy, but we had a nice evening.
Friendly, professional service with a diverse and well prepared menu. We came for lunch and had a very enjoyable meal and experience. Nice view of the Pacific. Would definitely return and recommend this fine establishment.
The hostess went out of her way to get us a nice table outside at sunset. I think her name was Yanez? She was off work before we finished dinner so we were unable to thank her again. It was our first time there and we really enjoyed it especially because of the hostess efforts in getting us a nice table outside.
Always love this place. Can't beat the view! Food is terrific. We typically go for dinner but decided to try lunch this time. While the food/vibe is still great the prices are a bit steep for a casual work time lunch.
Was pretty surprised I nailed this find. We needed a nice place to eat dinner after Legoland. This restaurant was only 5 minutes away from the Legoland and right across from the Pacific Ocean. Perfect vibe - dinner was amazing.
Always outstanding service from valet through dining. The view and ambiance are second to none.
Amazing service. Lovely location and dinner settings. Efficient valet present which is key given beach front location.
The oysters were best I’ve had in long time - huge too! Highly recommended
Great food, great views, great service. One of my favorite restaurants in Carlsbad
Everything and everybody was awesome! One of our favorite places.
Get the scallop appetizer to die for!!! Absolutely wonderful service and perfect for a sunset dinner!
Fantastic attentive service. Valet parking, The view was amazing. The food was meh!
I ordered the King Crab legs which tasted like they were frozen. Two glasses of wine, 6 fresh oysters and the king crab legs- $137.00 not including tip.
We used to have nothing but great 5 star experiences there. The last two times the service was just ok, the food is still good but the attention to detail has gone down.
Loved the view! The entrees that we had were wonderful. Our server, Daniela, was outstanding and made our evening so enjoyable.
Martini's in the bar were great. Seated promptly at our reservation time, 8 o'clock. Osso Bucco was the BEST EVER. Vigilucci's lived up to its reputation. EXCELLENT.
We had 6:30 reservations to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We could not have picked a better restaurant or location. Yes, the meal was expensive, but we were prepared going in. We started with the jumbo shrimp cocktail, and we each enjoyed the specials. Alaskan halibut on crispy polenta and risotto with filet tips. Both were exceptional, the service was exquisite, the wine delicious and the view was perfect!
Our go to for special date nights!
Excellent food great service !
I’ve been going to Vigilucci’s for almost 20 years - they have crossed the value line. I couldn’t get a steak for under $65, and the wine selection under $100 is thin. I love the place, the view/location are fantastic, and the food is always good (not the best available in Carlsbad, but good). I’ll drive to Solana Beach for beachside dining next time.
My wife and I had a great experience. The food and drinks were next level. The waitress was on point with a good attitude. I wish there was more stars to give.
Thanks for a great night!
We have been to Vigilucci's many times now and think it is a great place to have a nice dinner and relax while in the Carlsbad area. The wait staff is always attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine offerings. Usually the food is outstanding as was my Mac encrusted Salmon. But, on our most recent visit, my husband decided to try one of the house specials which was a risotto with scallops and unfortunately it was very bland and not up to the usual quality we have enjoyed so many times before.
We would definitely go back for dinner again when we are in the area but stick to the standard menu items which have been wonderful in the past.
Parking is a challenge so come earlier than your reservation time. The parking staff should be awarded a David Copperfield award for fitting 4 cars in a 2 car space without scratches or dings! And, despite what they say, they don't use Vaseline!!
Very welcoming and accommodating staff. Angela the server/sommelier was excellent, she is 5 STARS herself alone !!!
I had the Vitello di Valdostana (Veal) which was delicious and prepared as I asked perfectly.
We started with the Tonno Tartare (Ahi tuna) and Calamari fritti which were beautiful and tasty, again perfect presentation and preparation.
All my guests enjoyed their respective dishes and we all give our compliments to the Chef!
Excellent 1st dining experience all around.
They should have posted that they only had a prefixed menu Disappointed!!!
When we arrived the greeting was not there. No Hi! or Welcome
Only how many is in your party and the name? Is your whole party here with you? When will they arrive?
Ambiance was nice, food was tasty, portions were good. Menu could have more options since it’s advertised as a “steak and seafood” few steak options. As far as appetizers go, the calamari was amazing, light she tasty and the portion was huge.
We visited the restaurant prior to a concert on a Sunday night and it seemed busy for a 4 o’clock dinner. The patio seating was nice and they had heaters due to it be a bit chilly. The only downfall to sitting outside was the street noise from the busy Carlsbad Blvd but the ocean view was nice. The wine list was pretty extensive, however it was a bit high. The same bottle of cakebread that I had in Beverly Hills the night before was 35% higher. The menu options were fantastic and offered a great variety. I had the lobster tail with vegetables and spaghetti aglio and my guest had the seafood ravioli, both of which were excellent.
I could not have asked for anything better from the hostess, service, to the kitchen. We were not rushed, we had a fantastic view, our service was one of the best and food amazing. This was as perfect an evening as possible. Very rarely do you have service the way we did anymore. She was incredible - did not rush us allowing us to enjoy our evening and was attentive. She did not skip a beat and we were appreciative!
Service is ALWAYS fantastic here. The location is beautiful, with an ocean view. Food is always amazing also. Great cappuccino. We normally dine here from brunch... I highly recommend the king crab egg benedict. The fettucini alfredo is pretty killer also.
Great service, tasty food and lovely view
Consistently good seafood & Italian dishes with an ocean view. The warm and friendly staff always go out of their way to make it a great experience. A must visit restaurant in Carlsbad.
Great staff from valet to wait staff. Great menu and wine list. Can't to return
Great food-- way pricey but a nice location. Wine more than way pricey. Still for a special occasion that was a great meal/experience.
