Was a wonderful time with my family. They reached out prior to inquire about any allergies. Very fun to watch how a Michelin star restaurant operates. Food was phenomenal and cooked to the perfect temp to eat right away and enjoy. Cocktails were fantastic.

Just an incredible restaurant in Carlsbad. Everything we have eaten has been so good. But always start with the deviled eggs and shrimp taquitos. Amazing!

About the restaurant
The minute you walk into Poseidon, you’ll be swept by the fabulous view. You couldn’t be closer to the sand and the beach than sitting at Poseidon on their beautiful outdoor patio. With such a spectacular ocean view, you’ll experience breathtaking sunsets and during the right season even catch a glimpse of the whales migrating up or down the coast. The bar offers a large circular firepit, which is nice on those chilly fall or winter nights. Off to the side of the bar is a split level dining room offering every table a panoramic view of the beach and the ocean. For decades, Poseidon has delighted both local San Diegans and the tourists that love the beach.

About the restaurant
Established in 2003, King’s Fish House is Carlsbad’s choice for seafood. Located just across from the Carlsbad Premium outlets and LEGOLAND, King’s Fish House features a large selection of fresh oysters, seasonal catches, sushi and live shellfish, including lobster and crab, on a menu that changes daily.

We’ve been in restaurants a little while – three generations, to be precise. A long time ago, we embarked on a road trip in search of the ultimate seafood experience. We traveled down highways and byways, pulled up a seat, put on bibs and soaked up the seafood experience: the no-name dishes with unforgettable flavor, the fresh-caught oysters and clams piled high, the hand-lettered specials on ancient chalkboards and the savory simmer of every combination of spices imaginable.

Welcome to the House that Seafood Built.

Come gather with us, celebrate, relax and enjoy a seafood dining experience of high quality, comfort, service and value.

North Italia at One Paseo and our wonderful server Desey made our special anniversary dinner extraordinary with delicious food, excellent service, and fine wine. The White Truffle Garlic Bread is a must! We also enjoyed the Braised Short Rib Lamache and the Crushed Meatball Ragu. The pastas are fresh and served promptly which only happens when service is on point!
