wonderful 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.

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 AMCA beach daysThe food is solid. The ocean is why a person would come here: the views, the smell of fresh sea tinged air, the surfers, the waves, and the sun.4/12/2013 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 AMWe took my dad here for hisWe took my dad here for his 60th birthday!

Very good service also4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale dining with a casual feelDining on the heated patio at sunset is a must! There is nothing like watching the sun slip over the horizon to set a romantic mood. The food is delicious, with something for everyone. I tried a chef special of swordfish that was the best swordfish I have ever had. The inside of Poseidon is lovely; the outside is not as nicely done, but you don't come to look at the furnishings. The Pacific is the star!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for lunchWhen checking on line it was rated $$ for price. I thought it was more like $$$ for lunch. I'll come back on special occasions only because of the prices of lunch and wine. Our server was awesome. The gentleman who served us was wonderful: got what we needed and lit the heater, even having to get a new tank, but was so cheerful.
Thanks much for a great experience and food.
mj4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, a great meal selectedAs always, a great meal selected from a broad menu. Service was top notch.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect romantic meal at sunsetWe were looking for a place where we could dine and watch the sun set. Poseidon was the perfect place. We sat in the outdoor area with one of those heating devices next to us. It was cozy, yet outdoors. The sunset was spectacular. The food was great. The wine nicely complimented the meal. And our attendant was really outstanding. She was genuinely friendly. We had a wonderful and memorable time--just what we wanted.

No mussels and broth is not as good as some others, but the view is great. The bread is good and the service is good.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhenever we are close we tryWhenever we are close we try to come. Been a favorite for past fifteen years.

My father, not much of a seafood eater ordered the pork chop and said it was the best he'd ever had. I tried it and agreed.
Great experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good Experience, Will ReturnThe food was very good, at a level I would expect for this type of restaurant. I could pick apart a few details on the food, but it would be just that: picky.
Service was outstanding - server "Scott" was fun, knowlegdable, and prompt. We were seated immediately at our reservation time with a nice view. The was a dinner out for work associates. The menu is not huge, but quite varied. All palates should be able to find what they want.
Don't choose Poseidon for a quiet romantic dinner. The place is just too hopping. But for a fun chatty night out, it's a solid choice.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was very friendlyThe staff was very friendly and accommodating. The service and food were excellent. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the outside dining made our night very romantic and memorable.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view! Excellent food!Great view! Excellent food! Kid friendly! Fast and helpful service! We had a 5:00 p.m. reservation on a week night and were seated on time in a fairly empty restaurant (bar seemed to be the happening spot at that time). Within 30 minutes the restaurant was full and the staff was quick to take our orders, fill waters, and they provided crayons and paper activity for our 6 and 10 year old. We were seated under the covered deck and enjoyed the ocean view, surfers, and people walking the beach. Kids loved the cheese plate and clam chowder and we highly enjoyed the salmon and the seafood tortellini. We will definitely go back next visit to San Diego!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways EnjoyablePoseidon is one of our family favorites. The waitstaff is always wonderful. The food is always good. We like the expanded menu. The sea bass was wonderful. My husband says the fried calimari is the best around.
Our guests were from out of town and they loved the view. They enjoyed the energy of the place and our waitress was exceptional.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!Fabulous meal out on the patio overlooking the beach at sunset. Very kid friendly. Fantastic food and great service made for a wonderful dining experience.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my husband here for aTook my husband here for a birthday dinner surprise and he was absolutely thrilled with our ocean view seat while watching a spectacular sunset that resulted in the an applause. Incredible food, service, view and ambiance. I would recommend this restaurant for its unique dining experience.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to sit back and enjoy..This restaurant was in a great location. When I asked for a patio table with my reservation, they said they try to accomodate as people get there. We arrived shortly after opening and were able to get a table on the patio. It filled up extremely fast. This was on a Friday afternoon. Their patio is very cozy and you have a great view of the ocean. Service was just ok, because I had to ask for wine refill multiple times, as well as I didn't get salad dressing with my side salad and when I asked for it, it never came out. There's $4 valet parking only, or street parking on the street. Overall everyone was polite and friendly and very accomodating. Definitely would recommend or go back again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe back porch (which is enclosedThe back porch (which is enclosed in the winter, with plenty of gas heaters) sits right on the beach, with an amazing view of the waves. The food was fantastic as well. Highly recommend!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is just a really greatThis is just a really great all around place to relax and eat.
