Nice location, well decorated and modern. I believe they had a recent remodel as everything is fresh and new. The service was very good and the food was good. They were out of the special which was disappointing as we were there on a 7 PM reservation. I do like this restaurant chain but must point out it is not fine dining fit for foodies. It is a very good family restaurant .

Friendly staff, went for my boyfriend's birthday. Ordered prime rib well done, came tho table medium rare. Asked for different dish. Chicken looked and tasted like it was cooked in microwave. Waitress comped our meal but it was totally crazy how horrible the food was. Unfortunately won't be returning.

Great spot for good food in a comfortable setting. Love the fire place room. Service was good, but could have been a little better. Never received the bread. Overall, great experience as usual.

We particularly like the Brigantine in both Poway and Coronado for special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays...this time it was New Years Eve. We have been there many times for NYE...always beautifully decorated and a festive atmosphere. Food is delicious. We like dining in the rooms away from the bar area as they are a little quieter.

Usually love Brigantine (been coming for more than 20 years at different locations) but this time the food quality was not up to standard. Four of us were dining. Three out of four entrees were below par. Roast chicken was a little tough and dry. Beef entrees the same. Sand dabs were excellent. Seafood dip was great. Overall was a bit disappointed in food but service was good.

The food was very good! Our server, Brittney, who is also the manager, was great! I love in Northern California so I am unable to eat there very often, unfortunately! Would it be possible to get your recipe for Coctel Del Mar? It was so good and I would love to recreate it at home. I also had a Shrimp Taco that was wonderful! Will be back next time I am in San Diego!! 😊😊😊

I love the Brig and usually the food is very good. But was disappointed with my brunch food, tepid and without much flavor. Got our favorite booth. But had to ask/scout for salt & pepper. And they were pushing their holiday specialties so we had to ask for mimosas (by the way they charge extra for the OJ). And no bread or muffin offered with our omelettes, the potatoes were terrible and fruit mostly tasteless. We lingered but it wasn't because of the food. Our service was fine...and appreciated her attentiveness.

Food was ok. I know other places with much more flavorful options for a lower cost. They do not have as nice of a facility and the service was great ... but the food is important and thus the lower rating. I had the swordfish and it was very bland, almost no taste. The calamari was very oily (but it did taste good).

This was my first visit to this location for the Brigantine. We went to have Sunday brunch before a show we were going to at 1pm. We would have stayed a lot longer; the Ambiance, the service, the food , ALL was exceptional. Can't wait to go back!

The clam chowder never disappoints. Oysters on the half shell very fresh and succulent. Tried the seafood gumbo for the first time. Just enough spice to get your tongue tingling. Panko crusted mahi mani is always a favorite.

Simply the best fish tacos in San Diego (maybe the best anywhere). You eat these fish tacos just once, and you will never even slow down when you drive past a Rubio's.

We are Brigantine fans, have enjoyed Point Loma, La Mesa, Coronado. Poway was a little bit of a disappointment. Food quality was not on par with the other locations. Portions where smaller and the menu has defiantly changed. Service was good, waiter was tentive.

We were seated immediately and at a corner booth. Waitress was experienced and efficient. My sand dabs were excellent and this is one of the few restaurants that serve this dish. It was our anniversary and the waitress brought a generous flan to share. The early bird dinner was quite a bargain and worth returning for.

Probably the best that Poway CA has to offer in terms of dining. Excellent service provided by Jackie --- ask for her section if you can --- and the fish is to die for! (After all, this is a seafood restaurant.) I had the day's special (pan-fried halibut) that was sensational. My date had the marinated skirt steak which was very flavorful but a needed a bit more marinating (just a bit "chewy"). Try this fine restaurant when you are in the Poway area and you won't be disappointed.

Really enjoyed the 1st catch today. M-Th, dining before 6pm, you can get an appetizer, entree and dessert for the price of a regular entree. I enjoyed the Seafood Fondue as an app, Blackended Salmon with an amazing Lemon Sauce and a Creme Brûlée. Have always received great service at this location.

We always make it out to the Brigantine to celebrate our birthdays. If you sign up for their email list, you get a great birthday discount and they don't flood your inbox throughout the year. In addition to the birthday discount, they give you one of their (gigantic) desserts for free. We've not had a bad meal at the Brigantine and have even taken (picky) out-of-town guests there who were happy with their meals. The Brigantine will definitely continue to be part of our annual birthday celebration! Personal favorite menu items: wok-charred ahi, shrimp & crab louie, crab & lobster cobb, and the clam chowder.

I ordered the lobster crab salad. The lettuce tasted like it had been frozen and
defrosted. The crab was like rubber. The lobster tasted frozen/defrosted. It
was probably the worst I have ever had. Now I did not complain, did not
send it back so I didn't give the restaurant a chance to make it better.
That was my fault. Now my friends dinner, scallops was excellent.
