Brigantine La Mesa
Excellent !!!We were so impressed by the service and for the food recommendation by our server, he suggested the Alaskan Halibut since it has such a short season, 2 months. We all ordered it and we all agreed it was fabulous. The portion was very generous! We noted that we were celebrating 2 anniversaries and the server wished us a happy anniversary. That itself impressed us and then we both were offered a free dessert! All in all this restaurant is all about the patrons, service and great food!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the food, the serviceI love the food, the service I received. This is my third visit for a special birthday occasion.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWedding AnniversaryThe Brigantine in La Mesa has been around for years, yet of all the many times I've been there, I was only disappointed once. You can almost always count on the "Brig' for outstanding fish dinners, as well as other delicious entrees and deserts. They have a fairly nice wine list, but a limited "by the glass' selection. Service is usually very good, but can be a bit slow when busy. We usually only go to the Brig on special occasions, since they can be somewhat pricy, over $100 dollars for two. Since this is one of my wife's favorite restaurants I took her there for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We like to be seated in the outdoor patio area because it is usually much quieter.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE The Brig!I would recommend The Brigantine to anyone and everyone! The food is always delicious and reasonably priced. The $3 bottomless mimosas at brunch cannot be beat. The best part about the restaurant is not the food or prices, though-- it's the service! Everyone is super friendly and professional. Our server, Denay, was very accommodating and sweet! The manager at the time, Alex, also came over to make sure that everything was to our liking! He was great!
If you're looking for the perfect East County hideaway, go to The Brig in La Mesa!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentWe have been going to the Brigantine for many years and have never been disappointed. The food and service

Loved the expanded menu, but also the old favorites that could be ordered. With fish and chips, fish tacos, a brig burger, and two orders of carnitas our group was really happy. Makes me wonder why the carnitas are not a regular menu offering. Also like the mini pastry plate that was served in lieu of the bread basket, and the $3 unlimited glass of champagne. New to us was the raspberry tea which was wonderful--not sweetened and with no lingering after-taste. It was so delicious, that I changed from regular iced tea to the raspberry tea.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBrigantine La MesaDan was our waiter and he was excellent. Have been going to this restaurant for several years. And I dined at the restaurant that was there before it known as the Top Shelf, also outstanding.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper Server Monica /Super ServiceI first chose the La Mesa location for my 12th Wedding Anniversary because of its nice Romantic ambience and now I will include a great service experience; dining services provided on our server "Monica"enhanced our experience on this special night.

All of them have been overall good experiences. The food has always been excellent and service has always been great. It is sometimes a little loud and hard to have a serious conversation with guests but since it is family friendly (and bar friendly), that is understandable.
We look forward to future visits.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMwe were there for our anniversary,we were there for our anniversary, going early in the evening was just right for us. the food was great and so was the service. would come again3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and son had a wonderfulMy wife and son had a wonderful time at the Brigantine.
