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 over 33 years, Poseidon has delighted both local San Diegans and the tourists that love the beach. An excellent menu, a favorite with all the locals is designed to cater to all appetites and pocketbooks.

The outside seating at Poseidon was amazing! The view and people watching was also incredible. Unfortunately, the wind and outside temperature made it hard to keep the food hot. Server was great and paid just enough attention to us without being intrusive. Will definitely go back.

Outstanding locally-owned restaurant doing a terrific job coping with the COVID challenges. Everyone, from the valet to our server, went out of their way to make us feel welcome and safe. Food was superb, as always. Location virtually on the beach can't be beat. We will be back -- soon!

I had the best lobster I’ve ever had! The sauce that comes with it is phenomenal. And the potatoes and asparagus were perfect. We sat outside and the views were amazing!! Our server was friendly, helpful and efficient. It was a little pricey but for what we got for the great experience, it was worth it!

We went on Valentines day at 4:15 before the rush. We wouldn't have changed a thing! The food was perfectly prepared and served and the service that Oscar provided was top notch, we will always ask for him going forward as we plan on returning regularly. It was worth the drive from Orange County for sure.

We had a reservation on Valentine's weekend, staff called and confirmed our reservation on Friday and informed me there will be two menus, a preset menu for a 3-course dinner, and a regular menu that we could choose from. Once we arrived the next day they said the only menu available was the preset one and no other option. The restaurant did not honor their own staff's words and we left the restaurant.

The view from the outdoor patio is amazing. The service was spot on and the food and cocktails were very good and reasonable. Tables are spaced well and all patrons and staff were following safety COVID guidelines. I especially appreciated the contactless payment system the restaurant offered.

since they had just reopened they had a very limited menu and no brunch menu. Apparently that was coming in the next week after I was there. But overall a good experience as always.
