    We were a party of 7 (6 adults and 1 child). The artichoke fritter appetizer along with our cocktails was fantastic! The waiter worked with us on creating a dinner for our son when nothing on the kids menu was what he wanted. Our entrees were delicious and plated beautifully. We ordered cheesecake for our dessert and were very disappointed. It was bland, tough, and tasted like we were eating the display. We notified our waiter and he got the manager right away. The manager listened to our feedback and rectified it with replacements quickly (that were also as delicious as our entrees and appetizer). Overall, it was a great meal and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

    Restaurant looks amazing after the remodel! Everything was great. Food came quickly. The halibut dinner is always delicious! I’m glad it is back in season. My brother had the wagyu burger and it went down a treat. The salad with chicken was yummy too. Good wines as well. Staff were friendly and helpful, if not a bit hovering.

    The the quality of the food was terrible….even the French fries. Myself and my wife got upset stomach eating miso glazed salmon and the fries came with tacos and burger were soggy. How can you mess up French fries…seriously! Paid $170 for junk. Pls avoid this place, you can get better quality food from McDonalds.

    We had a lovely time at the newly renovated Brigantine in Poway. The restaurant updates look fantastic. Apps came out quickly and were delicious. My macadamia crusted Mahi was tasty, but the vegetables seemed like they were an afterthought and needed some love. No seasoning, and undercooked. It didn't detract from the overall enjoyment of the meal though. The scallop dish was enjoyed by two of our party and the fish and chips were a hit as well. Overall we had a great time! Thanks Brigantine, for a lovely evening with family.

    Dined at lunch with my son and daughters in-law on Valentine's Day. Service was a bit slow and my meal was slightly undercooked and a bit cool (sat out too long.) My son and his wife enjoyed their meal and I'm glad for that since it was my treat.

    The cheese fondue appetizer was quite good. My New York steak was on the tough side, OK, but not great. My wife's pork chops were also just OK. The Mud Pie dessert was excellent. Good service, good ambience, easy parking. Overall, an OK local restaurant for Poway, but not to die for.

    Our dinner, and service (Heather) was very good. A score of 4 is top notch to me due to the fact that there is always room for improvement, therefore, a score of 5 would mean no improvements need to be made.

    The dinner was served warm, not hot. The lighting was too low so it was very hard to read the menu. Many people were using the flashlight option on their cell phone. The dessert I ordered for my wife's birthday, was a message that never made it to our server. When I asked for it, she seemed confused.

    Christmas Eve is perhaps not a good night to dine out. The place was beautiful, service was good, but food was cool, vegetables under cooked and risotto very bland. Got our cocktails at the same time as our entrees after ordering with our appetizer. A $350 lackluster event.

    Babs Meairs Mon, Dec 25, 2023, 8:15 PM (10 days ago) to OpenTable I would like to report on my recent dining experience at the Brigantine in Poway CA. My reservation was made several days in advance, and we arrived on time to be seated. We were escorted through the busy and festive dining areas, past a large fireplace with crackling flames, and by bright , twinkling lights to an outdoor patio in the back where there were no lights, the few tables were empty, and it was too cold for my 93 year old husband. The setting was dark and dismal, so we went back inside and fortunately found a table in the bar area where there was open seating. The reservation was useless and disappointing. Once seated, the service was prompt and attentive and the food to our liking. It was embarrassing to bring our out of town guest for a dinner treat and find such disdain for where we were to have enjoyed the holiday night out. I will be hesitant to make reservations in the future. Thank you for your attention, --

    Nice restaurant, delicious meals, very noisy in dining room due to a couple of group parties. One problem was the door going out to the patio dining area kept staying open, letting in cold air each time a waiter or customer used the door.

    Our waiter, Eric, was extremely annoying!!!! Loud, ridiculously trying to be funny. Didn’t chewing us throughout our meal. We needed more water, wine and never got asked. We placed our order and he was rather persistent in tryptophan tell us how large the option we chose was…. So far wrong! Didn’t like him and will make sure we always request Heather. We adore her!
