    The oysters were just OK a little small. The scallops were ok but the peas were too mature and tough. We decided to eat outside because it look like they were having trouble with A/C. The restaurant needs a face lift and looks a little tired. Would I go back ? No.

    The Ale Porkchop is delish!! And, the Brussel sprouts appetizer. They were out of the Prime Rib special at 6:30pm... that was a bummer. Their Mud Pie is always a great birthday treat!

    The service was outstanding and very attentive, but not overly. I had a margarita, Caesar salad, and crab stuffed shrimp. There was so little tequila and orange liqueur in the margarita, I couldn't taste either, but this was sold as a top-shelf cocktail. The lettuce in the caesar salad had brown spots and was slightly wilted. The lettuce was soaked with a bland Caesar dressing and had a few bland croutons. The 4 shrimp were plump and juicy, but I couldn't find or taste any crab and it was a bit light for a dinner. At this price, I was hoping for better.

    Masked waitress seemed "unfriendly" but not hostile. This was addressed and followed by an adjusted attitude from waitress. Salutes to her for her ability to respond appropriately and we appreciated it. I tipped her over 20 percent. When the mask is worn some effort must be made to convey your welcoming persona. I don't think the brusque treatment was intentional but she will earn more if she is able to adopt a light hearted, friendly approach to customers. Good great, had wonderful time with hard working friends. We will be back.

    We went for the lobster special which was good. Great portion for the price. we ordered shrimp cocktail and the coconut shrimp as appetizers and both were rubbery and over cooked. Definitely not fresh shrimp. Would go for the special again next time to avoid the lines at the other locations but I’m not sure if the terrible shrimp is an indication of other challenges.

    We booked a reservation with Brigantine in Poway for 6pm. On Tuesday they have Taco Tuesday. We were seated in the main dining room ordered drinks, and then started to place our orders - my wife and I were going to have items off their dinner menu and our son wanted to have tacos. The waiter said we couldn't order the tacos in the main dining room and would have to close out our drink and dinner order and move into the bar area for him to be able to have tacos. We had to go on a wait list to be seated in the bar area and when we were finally seated we were given both the main dining menu and the taco menu. Please tell me why we couldn't simply have ordered from the main dining area...this makes no sense at all. Brigantine - you need to review your process for handling this type of situation.

    We decided to try Brigantine as we are relatively new to San Diego. It was a delightful evening with friends. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Jules Julie) was a terrific server. The hostess staff (Elisa) was very accommodating as we decided to eat inside since the weather had changed, and she found us a lovely quiet table near the fireplace. We are slowly beginning to go out more and needed to find some more local restaurants, and we were not disappointed.

    Jacob was an awesome waiter. He was attentive and followed through with whatever we requested/needed. He made our experience better. My shrimps and grits were ok. Many love cheesy grits and unfortunately, I do not. So it’s good if you like cheesy. The shrimps were huge and perfectly cooked. The Brussels sprouts appetizer are always a favorite. The flavors of sweet and savory are so good and easily shared for a party of 5. The calamari appetizer was thick and nicely coated but not enough to be shareable for a party of 5.

    The food is NOT good at all. Shrimp, fish, and octopus were way overcooked. Their signature dish oysters were bad. Comparing to Brigantine in Del Mar is like night and day. It's ruin their reputation. Sad.. I hope they could improve significant.

    The food was outstanding, I ordered the Filet and it was perfectly cooked, so tender I almost could cut it with a fork! Everyone else also enjoyed their entrees and our desert was decadent and hit the spot! Our server, Jacky, was one of the BEST I have ever had wait on me... friendly, attentive, quick and got everything perfect! The busser in our area, Cody, was extremely polite and helpful as well. They clearly hire the best of the best at the Poway Brigantine! We will be back soon!!

    We had a great time. Waiter was absolutely fabulous and dining room was not too noisy that we couldn’t have a conversation at our table. Only thing my daughter noticed was the kids fettuccine was bland. No seasoning at all for the sauce and no offer of Parm cheese. Other dishes were flavorful and delicious.
