    We arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation and checked in with the hostess. We went to the bar and ordered wine. They were out of wine glasses so it took about 10 minutes for the drinks to come. Fourteen minutes past our reservation time we checked back in and the hostess said she marked us late to our reservation and she would put us up next for a table. We were sat shortly after at a table outside. The view is pretty amazing. Our server was friendly and we ordered water, more wine and our first appetizer. The appetizer came out before we ever received water or our wine- same issue with no wine glasses even though they took ours of the table when we ordered more. The grilled octopus was delicious. We then ordered the mussels, also delicious. The entrees were a total let down. We ordered the pork chops and the macadamia crusted mahi mahi. The pork was over cooked and dry and every component of the fish dish was bland. There wasn’t any music playing at the outside tables so the table next to us chose to play rap on their phones. I agree that music is needed but I don’t want to listen to rap music when I’m trying to have a pleasant date night. I’d come again but only for a quick appetizer and drink to enjoy the view at sunset.

    Everyone one enjoyed their food but me. I ordered the macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi it was awful risotto was gummy , the fish looked like a soggy frozen fish stick. I know I should of ordered anything else looking at my friends lobster tacos and coconut shrimp. Not sure why you would keep this awful dish on the menu. Have you seen it lately compared to your other menu items. The restaurant is lovely and service was great. But this menu item needs to go away!!!

    I celebrated my birthday there and was delighted!! Our server was attentive, knowledgeable about wines and food, and upbeat. Our oysters, surf and turf main course, and dessert (birthday treat by restaurant) were excellent in quality and preparation.

    The view was spectacular. It was a lot fun watching the boats pass by. The fish and chips were delicious. Some of the best I’ve ever had. We weren’t a fan of the crab and shrimp dip (hardly any in it) or the mussels. We went upstairs to the bar/lounge after lunch. There was open seating at the bar , but we had to wait to be sat by the hostess. I think this is ridiculous.

    The host service was clumsy and disorganized, borderline rude when reminding them we were waiting prior to others being seated outdoors. The experience then became more standard. The inside bar is wonderful. Must try.

    I made a reservation two weeks ago and requested an outside table. We were seated at an inside table at first and then had to wait for an outside table. It seemed "understaffed." Our waiter did his best, however. Food was lukewarm when it arrived to the table. Not what I expected.

    We had a great dinner when my Dad came into town for Father's Day. Him and his lady got the lobster/filet special. They loved it! I got the crusted mahi, which is always good. Risotto was a little sticky and kind of bland. My husband got the halibut and his filet was TINY. Over all pretty tasty, however the halibut and mahi dish could have definitely come out way warmer. They were not hot at all.

    We had a wonderful early Father’s Day dinner. When I made the reservation, outside seating was requested and accommodated. James, our waiter, we was professional, personable and attentive. The additional servers who brought our food and helped clear the table of empty plates were great! (I wish I had their names to put in this review). The food was good and the portion size was sufficient. We capped off the evening with desserts that were equally as good. Great experience!! Thank you Brigantine!!

    There should be an option to request an outside seating area ESPECIALLY when your window coverings (shade) doesn't even work... It's like inviting someone to your house to check out an amazing view from your window, but telling then that you can pull the curtains because they don't work. So disappointing! The service by our waitress was amazing as was the food, the lack of views during esrly dinner was what left a bad taste in my mouth.

    My wife and I had a nice outside table right on the water! We enjoyed seeing the boats go by. She has chicken cordon bleu which she enjoyed and it was a generous serving. I had the oysters which was a combo of oysters from two different parts of the world. Very good!

    Was a little disappointed with the way they set up their tables. Anthony’s, the restaurant that used to be there, had their tables perpendicular to the water so everyone had a view. Service was slower than in La Mesa but very friendly. Fries were super brown, never seen them like that, looked over cooked. The oysters, lobster tacos and burger were delicious. LOVE their mud pie!

    Brigantine is great for ambiance, view, drinks and appetizers. For main plates, we had to return the steak, because it was very hard. We couldn’t even cut it with the knife.
