Management made a great change
Management made a great change with the crab/shrimp louie - not so much lettuce and filler now - lots of avocado/crab/shrimp. My fried Mexican shrimp lunch was fantastic - their tartar sauce is very tasty. All in all, a delicious Friday lunch for 4 of us.

Brigantine is a very nice
Brigantine is a very nice place with very good food. The service was great, the menu choices were perfect. The specialty drinks are exceptional, and some are one of a kind.

We celebrated a couple of things that evening and one was cancer freedom :) We had an extraordinary night and we love your prime-rib. Our server was great, the hostess, as well as the entire staff; thanks for making our night special and for that wonderful flourless chocolate cake.

an unexpected treat!
Had a lovely time and a great lunch time meal - our waitress recommended some starters that were spot on - finished up with some house salads and enjoyed every bite. The staff worked well together, the food was pleasant, atmosphere energetic and friendly. Great service and the hostesses actually read my request for a quiet booth away from the service areas due to the handicapped lady I was entertaining on a walker. We didn't feel we were 'in the way' and were able to conduct our business quietly without interruption. Well done!

Because I had a gift card, we decided to celebrate my friend's birthday by having dinner at the Brigantine. From the moment we arrived, the hostess, waitress, bus boys and everyone we came in contact with were accommodating and provided that "service with a smile" that seems to be in short supply at most restaurants. The outdoor setting was quiet, festive, warm and inviting. Our food was cooked to perfection, delicious, attractively presented and I might add, more than a generous portion. Because of the birthday celebration, we were presented a complimentary dessert which was more than enough for the two of us and also perfectly delicious. From beginning to end, this dining experience had not one flaw and it really was a PERFECT EVENING.

The hostess/servers in this location are always the nicest and most pleasant. It is always special to come here. The food is consistently a 4+ out of 5 but mostly you are always treated consistently well. Drinks are always consistent and dependable as well.

We're "Lifers" at Brigantine
We're "Lifers" at Brigantine Escondido and always, always, enjoy the place and the consistently wonderful meals. Our server this time, Cecelia, was simply charming and her cheery and attentive manner added a special ingredient to the experience. Please pass on my compliments to her. We were there on Mother's Day, and the place was crammed (good for you!!) but she never broke stride and rendered just terrific service.

Lunch was great!
Not crowded at all. Was perfect for our business lunch. The French Dip was excellent and at $10 was a great price. Fries were hard as a rock so I'll get fresh fruit next time....better for the waistline anyway. - john

Everything from the friendly cordial hostess, great server, calamari was awesome. It was my wife's Birthday and they treated her like the special person she is. Brigantine will always remain on our list for special occasions.

Frequent Brig Diners
We dine at this Brigantine, regularly. It provides a quality meal with many fresh selections available. The service has always been excellent. I am gluten-free and I am pleased to report that every waiter that we have had at this Brigantine has been alert to ensuring that i do not select items that have "hidden" gluten.
Friendly staff, quiet (usually) dining environment.

THE best Prime rib around!!!
We went on a Friday before Fathers Day and it was busy but not overly packed. You can dress up or go casual! Great selection of food! Kid-friendly. THE best Prime rib around!!!

This was our third time here.
This was our third time here. We enjoyed the ambience and food before, so we came for Father's Day lunch. It was wonderful! We sat in an outdoor patio area and were treated to beautiful weather, a fountain and pond, and birds coming and going. We had seared ahi and artichoke fritters for appetizers, seafood dishes and a chicken dish as entrees, and the creme brulee and mud pie for dessert. Everything was delicious. Our server was personable and funny, and checked in on us a good number of times without overdoing it. I ordered a mojito and was brought a sangria instead. When I pointed it out, the server immediately apologized, told me to keep the sangria, and brought the mojito right away. Overall, a great dining experience!

Restaurant we just what we
Restaurant we just what we were expecting having also been to the Del Mar location. Have been to the Escondido location before and would definitely return.
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We each had different entrees and both were good. Your calamari steak exceeds Fish House Vera Cruz's. Service was excellent too. Because we are retirees, we can not patronize this restaurant very often (price). The restaurant is probably the best Escondido has to offer.
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
A group of us who hadn't seen each other in four years met and the Brigantine in Escondido provided the perfect atmosphere to rekindle our friendship!

Crab stuffed shrimp - best ever
It was a part of a special, swordfish and crab-stuffed shrimp, but the shrimp were amazing and overshadowed the rest of the meal. It had this BBQ char-grilled flavor that was good and rich.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good old restaurant
Had a good time, lively crowd. Food was above average. Would go again.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best in the Chain!
We love this site. The food is consistently great and so is the service. We enjoy this as the best in the chain in the San Diego area.
We return often for especial great food and service. Thanks, David

Server was Great!
Kudo's to Serena for such an outstanding job! A breath of fresh air and we haven't always seen....but now we'll ask for Serena's section. Helpful, attentive, caring, polite and very professional. Chicken picatta was excellent as was the prime rib. Veggies were excellent! Please bring back Stella on draft! - john & beth

Special Occasion Favorite.
Being a Monday night, it was even more enjoyably quiet. Andrew was a perfect server who knew when to appear/disappear. The selections we chose were perfectly prepared & presented.

Our new favorite in this area
This restaurant is part of a small chain we discovered and will go there every time we come to Escondido. We have dined there at least 5 times without ever having a problem. They gave us the table we ask for when booking on line. We bring our own wine although their list is good and they will decant it at the table for you.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
There has been a change & all for the good. A new level of excellence in food, presentation & service. Thank you for a first rate dinner.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very knowledgable about what they're serving. Ahi poke wonton tacos are incredible. One of my favorite resteraunts in San Diego area
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great time!
Like always, the Brigantine delivers. Great service, great food. Can't ask for more...
10/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
If you are looking for a local restaurant in Escondido, California that serves excellent seafood, Brigantine is the one for you! Wonderful service and the "catch of the day" choices were wonderful. It might be a good idea to get a reservation to be on the safe side. My husband and I were there on a Wednesday, and it was very busy for a week night. This is a restaurant that we are definitely going to return to, when we get back to California.

My friend & I share a birthday. To celebrate our special day we went to the Brigantine, Escondido. The service was excellent, the fish was fresh, well prepared & delicious. The atmosphere was quiet & relaxing, great for catching up with a long time friend.

New chef - hurrah!
We've been coming to this Brig for years. About 6 months ago, we had two pretty horrible lunches in a row. I let management know but have stayed away because it was that bad. Recently had company in from out of town - wanted something close - so crossed our fingers. We went for an early Friday lunch - and had a wonderful meal. I mentioned to the server that the cioppino was exceptional - much better than before. He mentioned that a new chef was on board. Yeah! We will be returning....
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my older sister out for her 71st birthday dinner. She doesn't get to go out much , and lives on a fixed income, She loved the menu , and she really liked it when I told her to have whatever she liked. Crab and lobster cob salad , 16 oz. prime rib, a tall screw-driver , baked potato with works , tall screwdriver. She was in heaven , I scored a ton of little brother points!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to dine
Brigantine continues to be my favorite place to eat. We don't go out much, but when we do, this is my first choice for both beef and seafood. It is nestled into a Vons parking lot and may not be easily found by folks who have not been there before. Once inside, you forget where it is located as the ambience is outstanding.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were seated and attended to right away, The food was delicious, Most notably the fresh Oysters and a steamed mussels appetizer. Prime Rib was perfectly cooked.

My wife and I, as well as friends, have scheduled dinner at the Brigantine Escondido at leat once a month for the past few years.
You can count on the menu selections, great service and up beat environment for a pleasant evening out
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
My Mom and I shared a wonderful lunch recently - cioppino and the fried shrimp entree. We also had the appetizers of blackened ahi and fried claims - with 3 or 4 dipping sauces - all were crazy delicious. Our meals were made even better with the amazing service from Hector - he's the best server...ever. Be sure to ask for him when you go. Another delightful lunch at the Brig.....
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
good food, good price
The Brigantine in Escondido was wonderful as it always has been. There is a 3 course menu for early diners that includes soup or salad, a choice of several entrees, and dessert. The macadamia crusted ono was delicious, and the chocolate desset was very rich and melted in the mouth. The Service is always wonderful and the atmosphere lends itself to a nice meal out. Prices are reasonable especially for the three courses.

Prime Rib Secret
The prime rib was one of the best I have had this year!
Good service made this a pleasant dining experiance.
We will return soon.
