Great this is why I always return
We are regular customers, always enjoy - just the two of us or with company.
It was great
This was our first time coming to The Brigantine and we LOVED it! The location was great, the dining was superb and the ambiance was amazing. When you first walk in there are parts of boats to fit the fish restaurant's theme and it's really cute. We got to sit at a booth and we had a view of the la mesa city. Beautiful day, beautiful place.
We started out with the shrimp and crab fondue with garlic bread to dip in and it was more than delicious. A big yes! Definitely recommend!
For our main meal I ordered a stuffed salmon with rice and veggies (um, delicious!) and my husband ordered the seafood gumbo and he was more than impressed (and he's a picky eater).
Our server Matt went beyond the stars to give my husband and I an amazing experience at the brigantine and he was very kind to give us a small dessert on the house. Matt was kind, punctual and always made sure everything was going great.
We are definitely planning on coming back. Thank you Brigantine for an amazing anniversary dinner!
Years ago I went here often, haven't been in about for 10 years or so.
What happened? Food was marginal at best. Service was okay.
Bummer I won't be back. At one time we loved this place
As good as always
we love our server Diana OToole (not sure I have the name correct ). we try to get in her area every time we dine a the Brig which is usually 1x per week.
We had a wonderful business lunch and the striped sea bass was amazing ! ! ! :)
We always enjoy the food and service and tonight was outstanding.
We also learned that the wine is 1/2 price on Wednesday
Great seafood, great atmosphere, great service! My mother-in-law gave us a gift card to this restaurant and we made reservations not thinking much of it. When we arrived at the restaurant we totally discovered this hidden gem! We were a little disappointed that although we made reservations the hostess was going to fit us in the back of the restaurant near the restrooms but she was more than accommodating when we asked for another seat. It was a busy night so we understood she was just trying to seat us. Would definitely recommend!
Ali our waiter was outstanding with so much personality. Great food as always, impeccable environment. Making reservations is a must because this place fills up fast. Several areas to dine inside or dine outside in a garden like environment.
The food, the atmosphere and the service is excellent!
Great food and service. Everyone in our party was very happy and content. Our waiter was wonderful but I didn't get his name. We will be back.
Our anniversary of 22 yrs, we wanted an intimate place to go for dinner. This place was very loud and our food came out cold.
Average food that is slightly over priced. They don't have a "Fresh Fish" menu and fish selection is very limited.
This place has become quite the franchise, there's three in the San Diego area, which I can think of. They're all good, and I always enjoy going.
Great service food is always amazing!!!
Make a reservation and plan to spend some time finding parking. Crazy busy taco tuesday and happy hours... anytime after 7 for dinner and you should be fine.
Abundant seafood choices, everything we had was good. Oysters rockafeller usually have some kind of grittiness to them...BUT not at here, they clean them extremely well. So, go ahead and order them, you will not be disappointed.
The filet Mignon was a bit tendony....this is a fish place so I didn't have high expectations. Soups are very flavorful and delicious.
A great find in our neighborhood! Food is good..good variety. Reasonable prices and always great service.
We keep coming back to this placeI Great food, friendly service, nice atmosphere, and always a good experience!
Great food, Rib eye, it was nice to return and see the remodel, great service!
Very good food, prepared in a great taste and style. Excellent service by hostess and wait staff. Prices a bit high, but always a good experience there.
Anniversary dinner, staff called me to verify reservation. I asked if prime rib would be on the menu. Was informed it would be. Arrived, seated, ordered. No prime rib, no baked potato. Left will not be back
The Brig is a great.place to get together for either bar food, lunch or a special occasion dinner.
Very disappointed that they were not offering the 1st catch dinners
Halibut was not good and service was not great after our server got a large party to handle
I made a reservation for Friday February 16 at 7:00 PM for four people. We were running late so I changed it online for 7:15 PM. When we arrived, we were told there was no reservation. When the hostess checked, she said the reservations was for the following day. I had received a confirmation on my cell phone and I showed it to her. It was indeed for Friday! The hostess, Tristen, was very accommodating. She told the manager what happened and they were able to honor my reservation although they were super busy. They apologized and told me we would have to wait 30 minutes, but in less than 20 minutes we were shown to our table. It is this kind of great service that makes this one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants that we continue to visit regularly.
Valentine’s Day dinner celebration with friends
We had a delightful lunch once we were able to park. There was not ONE parking spot available when we arrived. Very, very frustrating. That experience definitely detracted from the otherwise enjoyable lunch.
Great service, good prices and neighborhood friendly.
I have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, service and food, but on this outing I ordered the Brig's fish tacos which I've done numerous times, but this time the fish was very dried out.
Absolutely wonderful as usual! We have celebrated many occasions here and are never disappointed!
Always great food and pleasant ambience. Service is great, everyone is friendly. The most noticeable downside is that, because the Brigantine is so popular, parking is a serious issue. Highly recommend.
My husband and I took my best girlfriend for her birthday. My online reservation request of a table with a view was fulfilled. My friend had a two-lobster tail special, my husband scallops, and me the fabulous Cobb salad. We all enjoyed our meals, as well as the brussels sprouts appetizer. Service was wonderfully attentive and well-timed. Although we did not order alcohol, we did not feel at all neglected because of it. We like to come here for special occasions.
This place never lets us down. We regularly eat lunch there and, on occasion, dinner. Servers are always helpful, efficient and friendly. Food is always excellent. We will continue to frequent the Brig. It's been our favorite place for years.
Our dinners were both great. Waitress was very friendly helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. Hostess was friendly .
Pleasant dining experience
Prompt seating in a quiet area as requested. Good fresh fish and ordinary salad. The waiter was very attentive.
Outstanding! Our Server Joh was great and the food was outstanding
Excellent food and service. Thanks for a great time on my birthday!!
Our annual post Holiday Brunch is usually at an all-you-can eat buffet brunch. They are getting so expensive and usually a lot of "adequate" food. We decided to try the Brig instead and were not disappointed. $4 unlimited champagne!! Our waitperson Christina was the best!! The food was delish. We will definitely come back to The Brig la Mesa.
