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.

    As always, almost everything was perfect. The prices were a bit higher. But, in this COVID aftermath, that is understandable. The noise level was a little much. But again, when everyone is having a great time they tend to be a little more noisy. We love this place and will never stop returning.

    We hadn’t been to the Poseidon in awhile and wanted to stop in for dinner before our concert at the San Diego Fair. The food was excellent and so was our service. The staff from the hostess desk were also very friendly and accommodating.

    The service was friendly but very slow and non attentive. The menu is confusing and needs updating, there is no chicken on the menu! They only serve steak and seafood. The food that we ordered was tasty though! Cant beat the view and sunset right on the beach.

    Great ocean-side dining right on the beach with view of sand, waves and surfers. Inflation prices are up, but Chilean sea bass and seafood salad were well worth it for taste and presentation. Excellent service.

    Excellent dinner: the swordfish special was served w/4 large shrimp, perfectly cooked thick asparagus spears layered on a mound of forbidden rice with a smear of Romanesco sauce. I had them add a side of beure blance, perfect. My companion had the cioppino-generous helpings of seafood w/large slices of French bread.

    I ordered the seafood platter and the shrimp, mahi mahi, salmon and scallops were perfectly cooked (it’s not easy to time all these well), and loved that the dish included baby potatoes & roasted asparagus. It was enough for 2! My guest said the fish tacos were pretty tasty, too. Service was good. I would have given it 5 stars if we hadn’t had to wait so long to be addressed or have a server come by after being seated.

    We had a great evening and dinner at Poseidon celebrating two birthdays and overlooking the ocean. Our table was ready, even though we arrived 20 minutes early. Our server was wonderful. She was attentive but did not rush us. She made great recommendations on food and split meals for us when requested. We started with a sampler plate for the table which was great. The fresh seafood was perfect and the surprise birthday desert was special along with the Expresso Martini.
