We have been going to the Brigantine for many years and always enjoy it. We sometimes go in early to the bar and order from the bar menu which is great too. It is very close to our home so that is a plus too.
Service is always great too!

First time visit (although
First time visit (although we've driven by this place many times). Parking in the lot is free after 6:00 P.M. Love I could show up for dinner in jeans and an aloha shirt on a Saturday night. The online reservation system worked perfectly and the hostesses are super friendly. We were craving seafood and the menu didn't disappoint. Looking forward to a repeat visit to try other menu items.

This was my 1st time here & I LOVED it! The Ahi Poke Wanton Tacos & the Ciappino (I think that's the name of it) was DELISH!!! Ambiance was nice, service really good. I will definitely be back!

The chef was willing to adjust
The chef was willing to adjust the seafood in the fettuccine dish to my preference; with salmon! Very nice results. Didn't know what to do with the Open Table check I had for $20, but they figured it out eventually.

Hadn't had this excellent service in quite a while...not once did we have to call or wave down the waiter for anything...he was right on top of it all, water refills, drinks, plates removed, to go box etc.....not overdoing it like most places. They we're very prompt with our food, hot, all at once and very well.prepared. Excellent dining experience , thnx...

We showed up for our 7:45 reservation on a Sat nite and were seated @7:45 nice start. Place was busy some people were dressed a little too casual for my taste, oh well. Once seated the service was prompt and couteous. A nice house martini and and ordred shortly afterward not rushed though. Ordered the Brig salad which was excellent then had sea bass was also very good slightly over cooked though. Creme brule very good. The evening was a pleasurable experience and looking forward to returning.

Very good but...
Food was generally excellent but I may be out of synch with current food trends in that the Halibut I had was very good but just a touch undercooked. Thoroughly done and flaking apart is my preference but chefs seem to be taking a page from sushi grade tuna and sliding toward not fully cooked. Other than that it was excellent.

Everytime My Wife and i come here to dine it has been a pleasure. No matter what I choose on the menu, I'm never disappointed.

Service Above and Beyond
Our group initially chose a table that was a bit chilly. When we mentioned this, the staff readily moved us to another table next to the fireplace and lit the fireplace to make our dining experience more comfortable. Waitress was great about making suggestions. Overall a most enjoyable dining experience.

A Father's day event.

We were quickly seated!
The scallops, tenderloin tips and salmon were cooked to perfection!!!

Fantastic food! Try the Kettle
Fantastic food! Try the Kettle chips for appetizer and the Swordfish for entrée. My wife loved the sand dabs!

Seafood Fit For Foodies
Had a very nice meal here with colleagues. The seafood menu was varied. Everything was fresh and profesionally prepared. Take the short trip from downtown and enjoy.

I recommend this wonderful
I recommend this wonderful Restaurant to anyone who loves seafood at it's best & the service was fantastic. This was the 4th time we've been there & it seems to be getting better & better. Try the fried clams as an appetizer, ( superb) and the scollops or shrimp you cannot beat. Enjoy!

Better than I remembered
It's definitely been awhile since I've been to the Brigantine. I ordered the Wok-charred Ahi and it was unbelievably wonderful. It was so good, I went back the following night for the same thing.

Excellent food, service view
Great restaurant, the food was amazing, the service was excellent and the view was wonderful. What more can you ask for in a dining experience.

We took out-of-town guests here before dropping them off at the airport and all four of us couldn't have been happier. The ambiance at the Brigantine on Shelter Island was relaxing and pleasing to the eye. Our waiter was extremely efficient without being intrusive. The salads were generous and very tasty. The cioppino was the hit of our table but the Fettuccini Del Mar (with fresh fish, shell fish and goat cheese) as well as the Chopped Chicken Salad were delicious. The bar was vibrant, but not overly so -- and would have been a nice place to eat, too. Although our table in the dining room didn't have a view of the marina, it was a pleasant one! I would recommend the Brigantine in Point Loma to all!

seafood stand out
I really enjoyed my sand dabs which you usually don't see in restaurants. The menu reflected a good selection of seafood.
The location also added to the enjoyment by being close to the harbor.

Great early dinner menu
My husband had a porkchop and I had the red snapper. We both loved our meal

This is one of our favorite restaurants, great service, delicious seafood and warm ambiance. We go here to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions.

Repeat Repeat Customer
I live in the Midwest but visit San Diego at least 1-2 times each year, and always come here and always order the grilled marinated swordfish and always say it's the best I've ever had. Not an easy place to find without GPS or map study unless you know the area. Nothing fancy in atmosphere but nice, and very, very popular - with good reason.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chose off the First Catch menu, enjoyed it all. Service was great, attentive.
7/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
delicious and enjoyable. Perfect!
The waiter, Felix, was wonderful and I will go back to see him and order the crab and sea bass again. It was wonderful in every way.

our annual special occasion dinner
We go to the Brigantine every year on our anniversary and have never been disappointed. We love all of the fresh fish options and the friendly staff. We always sit on the balcony at sunset and enjoy a partial view of the water. We come at other times of the year too but never miss our anniversary. See you next year (if not before!). Note: the inside noise level is always higher than the balcony. In recent years our anniversary was on the weekend (Friday-Sunday) so the inside noise levels were much higher due to more people but this year our anniversary was on a Monday so it was not too loud inside...but we chose our usual balcony table.

My wife and I had dinner here before a concert at Humphre's. Her food was good, mine was not the best (guess you're not supposed to order a burger at a seafood place) :). A bit to walk to the concert if the women in your group are wearing heals.

Finer type dining
Lovely experience. Not to uptight but still presented as a fine dining experience. The staff were excellent hosts and the meals were definitely superb.
Didnt experience the oyster bar, but it looked very comfortable and warm.
We are at 5 pm due to other engagements, but at least 10 other tables walked in within 30 minutes. A good sign it is popular.

Our party of 4 had a great time, and both food and service were excellent. Recommend highly, and we will now frequent the other Brigantine's as well!!

Brig in Pt. Loma has been a great spot for many years. It's refurbished interior gives better views and good ambience. The seafood is always good, especially the swordfish. Hand-shaken margaritas are worth the trip, conveniently located for Humphries concerts. The early dining menu makes this affordable.
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
We travel to San Diego frequently and always dine at Brigantine Point Loma. I've NEVER been disappointed in any seafood starter, salad or entree. My problem is I can't stop ordering the sea bass or swordfish so I haven't worked my way through the menu. However, I have "borrowed" bites from dining companions and everything is a winner. From the host station to the servers and bus staff, the service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Thank you for a great evening - consistently, Brigantine!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
elegant and delicious!
thank you for making my date night so wonderful I give this restaurant 5 stars all across the board! I definitely plan to return it exceeded my expectations by far!

Not fancy, but good
The food and service was really good. The clam chowder was tasty and the Mahi Mahi was perfectly cook. Service was great, although it was a slow night. Dress is casual (jeans ok).

A classy choice in Point Loma
Among all the fresh seafood spots in Point Loma there are few with a nice dining room, a comfortable bar and a great menu. Most are very casual, walk off the beach places. Brigantine is a step above and a very nice one at that. The food is imaginative, fresh and well-prepared. The wine list is well-balanced with good choices at all price points. The decor is nautical but sophisticated. Only our waiter was a bit of a disappointment but his zealous performance might delight others. We were there on a foggy night and ate indoors but I suspect the outdoor tables have a nice view. Reasonably priced and well worth a return visit.
