Poseidon is our go-to at the beach...lunch or dinner....consistently excellent service and quality. Dinner pricing is a tad high, but the quality remains high too.
Great location for a nice lunch meeting with outdoor seating right on the beach!
The service was fantastic. The food was very good. Highly suggest the Sea Bass. Great location right on the water. If you can get a reservation around sunset I'd highly suggest doing it.
Wonderful experience -- from the valet, to the hostess to the wait staff, everyone was very welcoming, attentive and treated us like VIPS, on a very busy night. Food was delicious, gracious about the need for gluten free. Poseidon has been a family favorite for years and never disappoints. Thank you.
I made a time where the preferred time was blanked ie 7:00 pm. on internet.
Later I was told I could call and get the time I preferred.
Great service. We had a beautiful sunset. It was great to be outside. Everyone enjoyed their meal ( soup, scallops and salmon with Caesar Salad.
I have been going to the Poseidon for about 40 years, even though I live in LA now. It hasn’t changed a lot over the years and is a great place to enjoy the outdoors, right on the beach and enjoy looking at the ocean. The menus have changed quite a bit and the prices have risen a lot - maybe because of COVID and restricted business? Overall, it’s a great place to meet friends and hang out and I would definitely recommend it, despite the rising prices!
The lunch menu has changed quite a bit since it reopened (and prices are up too),, but you can't beat the outdoor fresh ocean breeze and view. Each of us were very happy with the taste of our meals, but had to ask for items off menu (they were available if asked!), such as grilled fish tacos vs. deep fried.
Even though you may have a reservation, be prepared to wait for your table 15-30 minutes. We almost missed the sunset. Also be aware you now have to pay for the bread. They no longer offer the delicious sour dough bread. It is now a rye bread. Not even half as good. We had to wait so long for our food, we had two orders and were charged $6.00. The server never shared we would be charged. Poseidon already charges you $6.00 for parking, what is next?Charging for water and straws? It just seems silly that such a beautiful restaurant would nickel and dime you to excess. This used to be my favorite place to bring visitor to San Diego. Such a shame!!
We were celebrating our first dinner after getting married. We also went here on our very first date and when my husband proposed to me. It’s such a magical place for us!!
Was patiently waiting for the long reopening here. Didn't see much of a change but the salmon entrée and filet entrée were amazing! I noticed the prices are higher but the food was excellent.
I was not impressed by the sea bass entree. It was a lump of fish with some bland white sauce for $45. There were 2 halved cherry tomatoes.
The bread was excellent but they now charge extra if you want kit. Overall, overpriced and not to pre-covid standards.
Be careful ordering the fish and chips. It was like something you could get at Costco and just make yourself. The ambiance and ocean view, as well as the service, made up for it though.
Always excellent. So glad they've reopened after their remodeling.
Great service awesome food beautiful day.
The Chilean Sea Bass is so delicious. The best we have ever had. The Prawn Martini is amazing. Drinks were great and Oscar our server was great. So kind, fun and attentive. There service was perfect.
Loved our meal by the beach! Great service and menudo
safety first. and great experience. will be back.
Long wait despite reservations, lots of people seated too close together indoors. Many tables were not 6 feet apart. The view is outstanding.
A little pricey, but worth it. Great ocean views, and great service.
Late lunch on the patio overlooking Del Mar Beach.
I had the steak salad and my wife had the Seafood salad.
Both looked beautiful.
We lingered after eating and enjoyed a great experience.
Bloody Mary was not very good. The pesto chicken salad was very good and the service was slow but our server, Auggie, was excellent!
The new is a great upgrade and the food is even better
Great outdoor beachside dining. Perfect sunset views
Great to have this gem back! Nothing like dining on the beach😎. Food was nicely prepared and delicious. Waiter Oscar was A+ as was everything else. Wade at the bar was very welcoming and professional. Will be back many times
Great patio experience with ocean view! Food was amazing, but I was disappointed they didn't have the chocolate cake given we were celebrating a birthday. Everything else was exception.
Always love going to this restaurant. You can’t beat the views. Service was great. The place has been closed for many months due to COVID and a kitchen renovation. Now the prices are SHOCKING. People overall aren’t spending money to go out and paying steakhouse prices was a surprise. Especially for only average food. May just return for Happy Hour.
Absolutely was my families favorite place. Unfortunately menu items have changed significantly and portion sizes are much smaller than before.
Great food and the service was great! The view though is amazing!!!
We are glad it is reopened but miss some of our favorite items that are no longer on the menu. No Turkey BLT specifically. Maybe once things settle it will return.
As always, Poseidon never disappoints...absolutely the best Shrimp Martinis anywhere.
So glad to be back at our favorite restaurant! Amazing food, service and ambience!
Things seem a little disorganized at Poseidon. This may have something to do with the constantly changing dining regulations in the county. The staff does seem eager to help the diners have a good experience.
The staff may need a little more training. The busboy asked if he could remove my fellow diner's plate when she was still holding her fork and had food on her plate. Our server was good overall but brought out the wrong version of one dish. She corrected this error speedily.
This restaurant has one of the best views in San Diego right on the beach in Del Mar. I had a seafood salad that had large scallops and shrimp with a nice vinaigrette. I had a spicy margarita that was quite spicy but tasty. Staff with friendly and efficient and they did well following all the safety guidelines related to Covid.
Great atmosphere, great service, delicious food. Just a little pricy.
So glad to be back dining at Poseidon! Excellent food, great drinks, and the best beach front location!
There’s no better place in San Diego County for lunch on a beautiful day. We sat on the patio for my friend’s birthday and had a delicious, relaxing lunch overlooking the ocean. Our server Darren was so nice & fun that we’ll definitely ask for his section next time! Can’t wait to go back!
Great experience overall! I noted instructions for two glasses of champagne at the start of the meal. Apparently no one read it though.
Our favorite N. county restaurant. Their Chilean sea bass is consistently the best fish dish in the county.
