Superb ......... as always!
Our guest very pleased!
Amazing location with great views of the ocean and the race track. Fabulous food and great service.
noise level was high, the floor gave way everytime somebody walked by our table, value of the food is low, service not good, the server was serving another room and was never around.
Affordable and good quality seafood. Nice view of the beach and the Del Mar Racetrack. Ask for a window seat. Our server was very nice. The valet was full so we had to park across the street. Don’t forget to pay the meter when you park.
Have come here several times and it’s always worth the trip.
The red fish was absolutely delicious!
We had a nice table overlooking the track. It's a pretty nice view. The restaurant was vibrant and crowded. Hostess team was pleasant and nice and sat us promptly. The waiter seemed both bored and stressed at the same time - sort of a type A; he got the job done though we waited quite a while just to get the first drinks order and some water poured. Food was just ok really. The coconut shrimp appetizer was tasty, crunchy with a nice spicy orange jalapeno dip sauce. Pass on the calamari strips but the breaded cauliflower was good. Everything was breaded so caution on the greasy beginnings. We had the hamburger - I'd pass next time and stick to the seafood. I think that's the better choice. Overall, good ambience, pleasant meal and I would go back to try other things on the menu.
The Brigantine is a very lively, fun place to hang-out after the races at Del Mar. Nice view of the track from the patio windows.
Wedge salad was underdressed, sword fish was over cooked. Gumbo was very good, needed a little heat.
Brigantine does a good job and has excellent food and service.
Such a great experience the server was amazing and the view from our table was phenomenal. We will definitely be back for girls brunch!!
Went for our three year anniversary; our server was very nice, pleasant, and wished us a happy anniversary which is always nice when it’s acknowledged. We were brought a complimentary creme brûlée for our occasion, service was attentive, and the food was amazing!
We were so glad to discover the room without large screen TVs. It was peaceful and had the beautiful view. The fish of the day was wonderful as was the Seafood Louis salad. There were four of us and none of us left unhappy. We'll be back!!
It's a great place. We had lunch and the oysters to start were excellent. Only real negative was the noise level generated by the gaggle of geese from two nearby wedding/baby showers.
Service was great as usual. We both ordered the special, which was mahi-mahi over risotto with vegetables. The risotto actually was more like cream of wheat. No discernible rice kernels, just kind of mush. The taste was very good, but it was weird. Perhaps just overcooked? At any rate, the vegetables were supposed to be green beans and carrots. There were multiple beans, though not many, but only one tiny carrot (on both of our dishes). All in all tasty, but I would not call it a $36 dish.
Very good service from valet thru dinner and depart valet. Our server was knowledgeble and polite. We had a very fine time. Our seafood was incredibly good. Highly recommended and we will visit again.
We celebrated two ladies birthdays and we all had a blast and half price on bottle of wines was a great value 👍🏻
We had a great window table, food was really good. Our server took a long time to take my drink order and deliver. Once our food was delivered she was MIA. I had to ask bus boy for more water twice. Customers shouldn't have to ask for water refills.
Great for lunch! Scenic view, great service and good for drinks
Great atmosphere and excellent seafood selection! Will definitely go back
Although our server was great he was clearly rushed off his feet and had way too many diners to look after on his own. He was a very experienced server and conscientious and courteous. Because it was incredibly busy the service was super slow. The noise level was awful and it was difficult to have a conversation across the table. Really annoying but I don't expect Brig. will do anything about this.
Family had a wonderful Sunday brunch. Service was excellent and food was good. The ambiance was perfect
I come in from Chicago every year and always make sure I have dinner here. The variety and quality of the fish is always great. The servers are always knowledgeable of the menu and the ambiance is relaxing with great views of Del Mar race track
Love the Brigantine!
We had the Ahi Tuna and the Mahi Mahi both were excellent!!
I eat at various Brigantine Restaurants on a regular basis. As such, I am very familiar with the menu. I ordered the macadamia crusted mahi mahi which is my absolute favorite and was totally disappointed. There was no nut crust and my fish was floating in oil. The taste was nothing like my memory or the description on the menu. I was so shocked because this dish is always superb. Our waitress was lovely and graciously replaced it with a different order.
For years my family and friends have enjoyed countless meals at the Brig but this was really a let down. I hope it was just a one time slip in quality.
Great food and service. Sat at window with wonderful view
Requested to be by the window with my reservation and they accommodated the request with no issues. The food was great. The only issue were the cocktails, with my friend’s drink it could’ve been that every place can make a common drink slightly different/ also she wasn’t feel that great so maybe her taster was off. I was a great friend and drank it for her. My drink didn’t have enough spice as listed in the ingredients.
Very enjoyable for our 54th wedding anniversary night. Thanks for the very tasty dessert and complimentary wine.
I expected their fish taco, but it's gone and replaced with lobster taco. Acceptable. Otherwise, scenery and interior is good and gorgeous.
Delicious fish tacos!!! Lauren was great. Loved sitting outside in the sheltered patio so it wasn’t too cold but we still got to enjoy the view.
Scallops were sensational
Our waitress was outstanding
Also enjoyed the beautiful view of the racetrack and ocean
I would recommend for any occasion
We will be back
You can never go wrong at the brigantine! On either
The bar side or the dining side, it’s just great. And the fact that they fresh stuffed my blue cheese olives upon request is huge kudos! :)
Always really crowded so be prepared to wait! But the food and views are great!
We had an overall OUTSTANDING dining experience here. We have driven past this (Del Mar) location many times, but had never dined here. We were seated on the patio area, which has window that fold open, giving it a very pleasant ambiance on a beautiful San Diego evening. There are views of the racetrack and the ocean, which was unique. Our service was provided by "Matt", who was attentive, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Our started off with calamari appetizer, bread, and Caesar salad. Entrees were filet "Oscar" , coffee-rubbed braised short ribs, and a lump crab cake. All were beautifully plated, and tasted even better than they looked! Finished off with a (shared) slice of the flourless chocolate cake. What a tasty, tasy dessert!. We will definitely be back!
The food is always good. The only negative experience we had with our reservation was the hostess. When I booked through open table I indicated that this was for a birthday. However, when we arrived the hostess took us to a table that was in the middle of the traffic flow with people constantly walking by on one side, which was obviously not special. When asked if we could move to a different table the hostess rudely noted "this was the table that we reserved" (note I did not reserve a table in the middle of the traffic flow) that "all the other tables were reserved" (I didn't realize that you could call and say I want the second table from the left by the left side of the floor - how are ALL the other tables specifically reserved) and told us our other option was to head to the bar where there was open seating. After that she just simply walked away and didn't even wait to see what we had planned to do.
Delicious food in a relaxing and scenic atmosphere. Do not pass up this spot!
Very good food and service
We had 4 different dishes and they were all delicious. Some of the ingredients were left off one salad but the server quickly took care of the problem. The view was wonderful: Del Mar racetrack and the ocean. Great place for lunch. We were celebrating a birthday and when the server found out he compt the mud pie that we split. What a nice thing to do.
Coming back to Del Mar, after living here in my 20s, I was pleasantly surprised to see The Brigatine. It was walking distance from where we were staying. Decided to grab an afternoon lunch on a Sunday. The views, food and service were all outstanding. Wanted to return again a couple of nights later for a cocktail and it was just minutes past closing time on the off season but they said they would be happy to serve cocktails. WOW, now that’s service.
