Solid food.The shrimp cocktail was excellent. Shrimp was fresh and much more flavorful than others we have had. The swordfish was good but I like swordfish cut thicker. Not bad though. My wife had a very good filet mignon which was very tender. I thought the smoked bacon tended to distract from the flavor of the meat but never-the-less it was very good. We usually eat at the Brigantine for special occasions and that is because it is very pricey...$100 for two, including a drink apiece. I will go back for special occasions, but I can get a comparable dinner at around 1/3 less elsewhere.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Service and Great FoodA graduation dinner at Brigantine could not have been a better experience. Jennifer, our server, was awesome and very attentive. The food was great and even though it was prom night, we were never ignored and the noise level never got out of hand. My group of 10 enjoyed the evening and enjoyed the service.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great meal hereI've made this spot a favorite for meeting clients and friends for a lunch/dinner appointment and have not been disappointed. The food is always very well prepared, the greeting is always friendly and service has been superb. Salads (especially the half portions) are a favorite because they are tasty and enough to fill a light to moderate eater. The parmesan crusted sand dabs are a special favorite of mine because they are so tasty and light on the tongue. The grilled veggies are always tough to get done properly (not too hard/not too soft) and they come out perfect every time. Bravo!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe were seated timely and our server was very nice and tried very hard. There could have been more staff as service was slow but we could not fault our server for it. Brunch was delicious!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWe had a great dining experience.

Thank you!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable AnniversaryCelebrated our anniversary at the Brigantine. Requested to be seated by fireplace when I made the reservation thru Open Table and that is where they seated us. Of course, at 5 pm on a Monday, we had the entire dining area to ourselves! We both had a fish dish, both prepared very well and was delicious. That's saying a lot since my spouse is not a big fan of fish (we are trying to eat healthier). The service was excellent, again, it helps when you have the entire dining room to yourselves. The only mistake was the two glaasses of red wine were mixed, but one taste and we could tell. We had a very enjoyable evening. They even gave us an anniversary card. Good job Brigantine.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent choice for lunchGreat selection of lunch items; seafood, sandwiches, salads, soups, plus a large selection of larger entrees for those hungry folks out there. Always a friendly greeting and good food at a decent price.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was outstanding.The staff was outstanding.

I don't know why we don't go to this establishment more often. It's really good.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful and expectedlyHad a wonderful and expectedly tasty lunch with excellent service from a young man named, Tino. He was attentive, friendly, and on the ball for all I needed. The chef did an excellent job with the veggies (fresh and crisp) and the sand dabs (tender, slight taste of lemon and capers with butter) and the coffee was FRESH (a must for my dining). What a mid-week unexpected treat for someone who eats out frequently to meet clients and doesn't always get this five star treatment! Well done!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place. Had eaten at theNice place. Had eaten at the one in Del Mar and this was very good also, but not as crowded.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTried this Brigantine againTried this Brigantine again as last time the kitchen was closing for lunch service and food was just so-so. This time the food was excellent, the entire restaurant and bar are already decorated for the holidays and our server, Ken, was quite personable and competent. Try the burgers! Or get the crab and shrimp salad and you won't be disappointed!11/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
