Seafood
A San Diego tradition since 1969, the Brigantine has received many accolades in our 40+ year history. "BEST SEAFOOD", "BEST CASUAL SEAFOOD", "BEST HAPPY HOUR", and even "BEST SWORDFISH IN THE WORLD", according to USA Today.

Well-known for our signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish, and Crème Brûlée, the Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks and grilled meats.

Perched between the spectacular Pacific Ocean and the hills of Rancho Santa Fe, the Del Mar Brigantine sits high above the action of the Del Mar racetrack.

A lushly landscaped garden offers an unparalleled setting for weddings and outdoor-themed events. Indoors, a formal dining room looks out to the garden through floor-to-ceiling french doors. For more casual dining, the glass-enclosed deck is a year-round favorite.

The Del Mar Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, lunch Monday-Saturday, and brunch each Sunday.

    The food came out too fast. I believe it was just being kept warm & not freshly made. Server talked too much & had to be asked to bring bread 2/3 times Too noisy

    The location is excellent and we sat outside on a beautiful day. Staff and service are excellent but the food was subpar. The cauliflower steak was blanched (?) and had little flavor. My mom had the ahi and it was "fishy" tasting. Good raw fish does not taste fishy.

    Food was good - Ahi - and the server did a nice job. VERY loud and hard to hear - expect better for a place this nice - and higher priced than I expected.

    A large party of 18+ (with several small kids) were seated in the middle of the interior dining room. Noisy and wait staff was only paying attention to this large party. This was an anniversary dinner for us and this was not even recognized by the staff. We sat at our table for 20+ minutes for the waiting to take our order. Very poor decision on part of Brigantine management to accommodate such a large and noisy party at the expense of other patrons. Unfortunately, our last time visiting.
