GREAT Ocean Front LocationFood was very good as was the service. If you can get a table on the outside patio (oceanside) it is great.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a highlightWe had lunch outside overlooking the ocean. It was a beautiful day if a little cool in the wind but the outdoor heaters felt like sunshine. Our waiter had tons of personality and really helped us relax and enjoy the entire experience! The food was out of this world. Best ceviche ive ever had! I highly recommend!!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurants.One of my favorite restaurants. Love that it's right on the beach and always request the patio. I have a long drive to get there, but still eat there as often as possible.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMfavorite lunch placeGreat view and great lunch food. My favorite place.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLocation, location, location...Fantastic location on the sand. We dined on a busy Friday night & were concerned about reviews complaining of slow/poor service. Our experience was quite the opposite. We were seated almost immediately at an ocean front table. Our servers were fast, helpful and attentive. The food was very good. We only had seafood dishes (ceviche, scallops and sea bass) which were fresh and well prepared. The atmosphere was somewhat loud as this is a very popular spot. Maybe not the best choice for a quiet romantic evening but a great experience overall.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service, great food,great service, great food, fantastic ocean side seating interior views6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBeauty & The BeachBeautiful presentation!

Our waiter was extremely gracious and attentive. At the end of the meal, he remembered we were celebrating a birthday, brought a delightful creme brulee with candle and joined the birthday singing!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view was beautiful andThe view was beautiful and the weather perfect. The wait staff was a little slow, but in general everything was of great quality and certainly worth it. There are few restaurants boasting a better location than this beach side gem.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceThis is a great place to go for a special occasion dinner. The patio area is directly on the beach and very pleasant. The server was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was magnificent!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and View!We enjoyed dinner with visiting friends and the food and view were just wonderful. Our visitors were very impressed. We have also had lunch a number of times and it is just so peaceful and relaxing to sit and watch the waves on the ocean as well as the surfers.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful View!Every time we are in Del Mar, we make a point to eat at Poseidon. The food is consistently good, service, valet parking and it's right on the beach! How can you beat that? I do recommend making a reservation as it fills up quickly.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the fourth time weThis is the fourth time we have eaten at this restaurant. The food, service and view were excellent. The wine list is acceptable, although pricey. We went on a Friday evening and had to use the valet parking, as there was no street parking left.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat sunset dining by the oceangreat location on the beach, good food, attentive service. have been going here for over 20 years and its only gotten better with age.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerThis place was beautiful and the food was really good. Pretty pricey compared to the beach house but overall it was very nice.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food at a great location.Great food at a great location. I have been going to this resturant for years and watched it change from a beach burger spot to fine dining.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experienceA north San Diego must. Oceanfront views in a semi-casual environment. Excellent food.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's the atmosphereThis is definitely a great place to make a first impression on a first date. It's got all the romantic ingredients except one - NOISE!! I may be a little sensitive to this because my business is sound, but I felt that I had to raise my voice constantly for my date to hear what I was saying. Mind you, we took one of the ocean view tables outside, but it wasn't the ocean that's to blame.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSolana Beach local likes it lotsWe are lucky to have such a fine restaurant right on the beach. Never sacrifices quality and great service for attractive location!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome restaurant!This is our second time to be there. We enjoyed excellent foods and a wonderful ocean view. Poseidon is one of the best restaurant to us.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful place witha knockout viewUse their valet parking - otherwise good luck finding a place to park5/21/2013 12:00:00 AM38 and countingWe celebrated our 38th anniversary here and it was simply outstanding!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant on the beachFood and service were great. Wonderful view of the surf, and open windows allowed ocean breeze. Looking forward to next visit. Only negative was there was no beef or lobster available on night visited (!!).5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a busy place - soThis is a busy place - so make reservations and use the valet parking. The view (beautiful beach, surfers) is lovely! Everyone enjoyed their meals (salmon, seafood pasta, rosemary chicken, duck confit mini tacos, asparagus w/ bernaise)! This is a really fun place if you don't minds crowds and noise - lots of energy! Will definitely go back!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!!Made reservations a week ahead and still waited 40min. and hostess almost gave our table to someone who had just walked up from the bar!!!! not cool! But we were with good friends and enjoyed cocktails from the bar and good conversation.
In future would get there 15 min early for reservations and watch the tables.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousThis is my new favorite restaurant! I made a reservation on Open Table for my 39th Anniversary. In the comment section I asked for a table with a view since this was our first time there and also a special occasion. We got a table right on the water and what a view it was. Our wait staff person Ginger was an absolute delight. She helped us with our selections and answered all of our questions, took our picture and was really very sweet. My husband had the 18 oz. bone-in Rib Eye steak, perfectly cooked medium. I had the Scallops and again, cooked perfectly. We also shared a Caesar salad and the buttermilk cheesecake. Perfect ending to a lovely day. We will definitely be back and will tell our friends about it too!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great Service and Tasty FoodWe had our daughter's college graduation lunch here - as we do most of our special celebrations! Wonderful as always! Food was tasty and served with a smile.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy restaurantWe sat on the patio right on the beach. Beautiful. Very good seafood and service.
My only complaint is that Poseidon, like more and more restaurants had such a high noise level that conversation was difficult until late when many diners left the restaurant. My prime reason for eating out rather than entertaining a home is to enjoy uninterrupted conversations with friends while enjoying good food without the hassle of cooking myself.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was Mother's Day so itIt was Mother's Day so it was very busy. Had to ask if there was specials and asked for bread for the table several times. My order was wrong so the had to redo my order so I ate later than the rest of my family.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMJust Can't Be Topped!Great seafood selections. Their appetziers are to die for! Nice selections of meat. Fantastic dessert menu! This place has it all!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNot so great this time.Usually, my guests and I have an excellent dining experience at Poseidon. This time, our margaritas were served in small glasses, watered down w/ little flavor and my cup of clam chowder was the smallest cup I've ever had. The salmon and the crab were excellent.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyableI would recommend Poseidon's to anyone wanting
to relax and enjoy a perfect setting with great food.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite locationsWe have been going to Poseidon for a number of years now, and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent and the view and atmosphere are tough to beat. One of the top 5 resturants on our list!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ReliableI Love this place! I always know I'm going to get great food at a reasonable price with great service. It's the only nice restaraunt I'm aware of in north county and sitting on the patio literally right next to the beach is hard to beat. Great sunset viewing. Go there.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVery noisey, but friendlyVery noisey, but friendly chatter. Tables very close to one another. GREAT scenery, both sea and two legged.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable birthday!The view of the waves, the delicious, well prepared food and the excellent service made this a wonderful birthday celebration. Will definitely return.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMore Please!I haven't been to this restaurant in many years and was pleasantly surprise how much it has improved in service and food
quality. We had an amazing table on patio and our waiter was totally fun. We were not rushed either. One of the best lunches
I've had in a long time. This is a great spot to bring your visitors to really enjoy Del Mar. Can't wait to go back for more!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood with the BEST Rib EyeAlways love this place. It makes me feel like I am on vacation while still @ home in San Diego.

The entrees were a little pricey compared to the facility.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Poseidon expectingWe went to Poseidon expecting only nice ambiance and a senic view. It was much more than that. All three of our dinners were fabulous and the service was exceptional. We will be back soon!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, but small portionsAmazing food, but small portions for the price. Awesome ocean views on the patio.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI made a reservation 3-4 daysI made a reservation 3-4 days in advance and asked for a table with a best view. I arrived right on time and was told there would be a wait for a table with a good view. There were 3 unoccupied 4-tops right next to the beach but I was seated inside with a peek of a view. One can only wonder who the prime tables were being saved for.
We had 4 different servers during our meal. While we occasionally had to chase one down they were all cheerful and helpful and did a remarkably good job considering how busy they were. I guess they used the team approach to prevent food getting cold waiting for one particular server. For a casual dining place that is probably a good system.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat outdoor dining. We alwaysGreat outdoor dining. We always get the same items: Fish tacos, Fish & Chips, and Thai Salad. Very flexible with the fish tacos, as they let us have one of each: grilled and battered.One person decided to try the pastrami sandwich and decided to go back to the Fish & Chips next time. The server was very helpful by making suggestions for 5 takeout desserts - recommended best ones for travel.
I think Poseidon has the best valet as the guys are so friendly and professional!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at the PoseidonWe have eaten at the Poseidon many times. Sitting on the back patio is always best for the ocean view. Service is very good no matter how busy they are.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen coming here since aboutBeen coming here since about 1982, and it's still my favorite restaurant.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
