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.

    The Poseidon remains the most delightful, easy going and affordable better dining along the coast. Everyone working is attentive, nice and accommodating. The food is reliably good and provides plenty of choices for new “favorites.” It has become an agreeable family choice across generations.

    Server was great! Remembering 50th anniversary of client and special dessert was spectacular! Hostess asked if we wanted sun or shade, my clients asked for shade and then the hostess put us in the Sun…. It was odd. I asked to move and we were accommodated immediately.

    Very fortunate to have this wonderful place to enjoy a meal and a fantastic view of our beautiful ocean. Valet parking is a big plus. Greeted by a warm and welcoming staff. Of course, views cost money and the prices are on the higher side, but for a special treat, worth the splurge.

    The restaurant is located on the beach for the "perfect" view. We had looked at the menu prior to getting to the restaurant and had no problem with what seemed to be high end prices. However, if you are going to charge these prices the food quality needs to be better than what they provide. Everyone knows Eggs Benedict should have "runny" eggs, ours were close to hard boiled. The other problem was we ordered the "special" lobster benedict, which was smaller than the regular benedict which we changed to for the "runny" yolks. Also, I asked for one thing on the side of my French Toast and everything came on the side with out any syrup. The view was the BEST part of the Poseiden.

    Everything was great except I had to go to the hostess after waiting for a 1/2 hour and not getting a text for the table. Hostess said it says you are already seated. They seated some else at our table and not us.
