Nice place. Had eaten at the one in Del Mar and this was very good also, but not as crowded.

Had a wonderful and expectedly
Had 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!

Our server was fantastic and the food delicious.
I don't know why we don't go to this establishment more often. It's really good.

I celebrated my birthday dinner
I celebrated my birthday dinner with my family at the Brig. We had a wonderful time. We all loved the food, especially the mud pie! Our waitress was very friendly and gave us great service. We had two little ones with us and our waitress was very attentive to them as well. Great evening. We'll definitely dine there again.

excellent choice for lunch
Great 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.

Celebrated 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.

Nice mid level restaurant.
Nice mid level restaurant. Good location & ambiance. I would come here with my spouse too.

a good choice
We enjoyed the food--Cesear salad, popcorn shrimp, sand dabs (YUM!)--and loved the happy hour special prices which made this more affordable. A very good meal and my friend and I were able to catch up without feeling rushed.

Well done, Brigantine!
Had a wonderful waitress; Sharon. It was good service, good food, and pleasant surroundings. Love the half salads and fresh coffee. Happy to spend time here meeting a client and having friendly people to greet you and provide service. I have used this spot a number of times for meetings and have never been disappointed in the service or the food.

We ordered the lobsters, they
We ordered the lobsters, they were a little overdone, but still very tasty. I enjoy seafood and since I was visiting my mother, I thought i would treat her.We had a nice meal, except the noise level was quite high. It is a great place for a lively and chatting group!

Nice seafood option for the surrounding area without having to drive very far.

Mother's Day Brunch
We 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!

We had a great dining experience. We had dinner on Mother's Day. The food was great. Our server (Eileen) was awesome! One of the best we have ever had.

Another great meal here
I'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!

Awesome Service and Great Food
A 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.

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.

Good Experience For a First Timer
My husband and his co-worker and I ate dinner at Brigantine - Poway based on another co-workers recommendation. Very pleased with the service, food and drinks! We will most definitely be back to this restaurant!

Lunch with Grandson
Met my grandson and his girlfriend here for lunch. The food was good and felt comfortable having a nice, private conversation. Thought the pricing was well within reason for the quality of venue and food.

Discounted dinner and free dessert!
Went to the Brigantine because I received my annual $15 off $30 purchase certificate (their standard birthday discount). My companion really enjoyed a salmon special and I went basic with a shrimp & crab louie salad. Both were very good, although I wish the menu said thousand island dressing rather than louie dressing. I don't order this particular salad frequently enough to remember that I don't like the dressing. A free birthday dessert (which we took home, as the entrees were large) topped off our meal. We've had the same waiter before (I believe his name is Rob) and he's always excellent.

Five Stars and then some
Outstanding, the House Salad is a fest for the taste buds, the Chicken Piccada was very good and portion sizes more than the average person can do in one sitting.......lunch tomorrow. Bethany was attentive, friendly, and anticipated everything. We would just think it, and she was there. Great dinner.

Good food with good friends
We enjoyed the relaxed and yet formal atmosphere, our waiter was friendly and attentive. A nice place for a nice enjoyable evening.

Sixth visit and still a favorite
Everything was great, good consistency is hard to find. But Brigantine delivers at every visit.
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
They did it again!
Brigantine Poway has become a spot for me to meet with clients for a casual meal, as long as I can talk when we eat and they have come through every time for me. The food is well prepared and a great variety to fit all taste buds. The service is always excellent and very attentive, and the dining area is spacious enough for people to not be seated too close to one another and able to chat. Try the sand dabs! Great taste. Or the salads, always fresh.

Food in Poway
A very popular place but tends to be noisy especially on Tuesday nights when they have their famous Taco Night. Good place for groups but should get a reservation.

Another Great Meal
Wife and I did an afterwork meet-up and mid-week date-night. Wine was $1.00 off per glass on Wednesday, which was an added bonus. The Wedge BLT Salad was great and all my wife's "extra request" were accommodated. Server packaged up our leftovers back in the kitchen, so we didn't have to scoop up food at the table and put it into boxes ourselves. That may sound like a small thing, but its one we really appreciated and a level of service that stands out.

Our food was mouth watering, the wait staff couldn't have been more friendly or nice. Made for a very enjoyable experience

Another Great Dinner
Table in the glow of the fireplace, superb service and outstanding food. . . what more could you want.
Brigantine has been consistent each and every time we visit. So many restaurants run hot and cold, so it's refreshing to expect and get a positive experience on a repeat basis.
Bravo Zulu. . . again.

Enjoyed a wild salmon with a tasty glaze for lunch. Try the spinach salad to start with, a nice salad for a starter.

Took care of us
Hostess noted our request for a booth, if one was available. Went out of her way to get one clean for us which was much appreciated.
Service was excellent, as usual, with perfect timing and attention to detail.
Shrimp was over cooked tonight and bread wasn't as fresh as normal. But, everything else was great.
