First of all, we had the best server EVER!! Her name was Valerie, and she had the best sense of humor! She had us in stitches!
Everyone enjoyed their choices!
Bloody Mary was not very good and the fish in the tacos was over cooked.
Always consistently great food and service and an incredible view. We’ll be back.
BEST NIGHT EVER. We arrived early to take advantage of happy hour-- had a couple of margs and some calamari-- my favorite....The Best!! Then enjoyed a wonderful dinner, with waiter, David, who was super nice and friendly and made an awesome recommendation for dinner. Food, service, view, and ambiance could not have been better!!
Service very mediocre. Waited a long time to get our meal. Calamari sandwich recommended by server was flavorless. Sent it back for fish tacos. Waited a long time again for nothing special. Wine choices poor and overpriced. Seems like they are banking on the beach front location and not paying attention to much else. Won’t be returning any time soon. Too bad. Used to be much better.
Great place to take out-of-towners. We always try for the sunset on the patio. Cioppino is amazing!
we were kind of rushed by staff. Not that friendly
Bday celebration. Waiters were very helpful. Food was excellent. Will come back. Thank you for the great time.
Service was terrible. And this is not the first time we experienced poor service there.
We waiting nearly an hour for main course.
Food was mediocre and expensive- Cioppino was Luke warm
Seafood linguini was in a tasteless broth.
So disappointing as we love the location on the beach but clearly Poseidon considers their location as a draw and not their food or service.
Loved our server Amanda! Best of class for sure.
Birthday celebration we do every year at Poseidon. Best mojitos and view in town!
The ambiance was incredible. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset from our table on the patio. It was cold and windy when we arrived and our waitress provided us all with blankets to keep warm. That was a nice touch. Our server was attentive. The food was pretty good, but not great. Given the price of each dish, the food should have been spectacular. I was disappointed with the overall value. With so many other options nearby, I would think twice before returning. Very good overall experience if food quality and value are not that important.
Top notch experience. The food was outstanding. The setting could not be more beautiful. The patio is right on the beach. Service was extremely attentive. The tomato soup was delicious. The tuna superbly prepared and beautifully presented.
Had a lovely time. Great food. Great Value and Great Service
we have eaten at poisidon preveiously and have always been pleased with the experience. i am a fish person and find their menu items excellent. my wife had the lobster plate and was very pleased. all of their associated services are excellent, parking can be pain but that is true almost anywhere. the view, beautifull,. we'll be back.
Beautiful view. We were a party of 8 elderly women (a nightmare for many experienced servers) and which is difficult at best in a busy restaurant. We were well looked after, our food served quickly and our server checked back regularly which made the 8 elderly women with cocktails very happy! We will go back!!
We dined on the patio during a nice warm day this week. Everything was delicious & sitting on the patio watching the waves & surfers while enjoying lunch was a treat!
Perfect evening out
Enjoyed dining on the patio next to the beach. The food was great and seeing the sunset was a bonus.
This was our first visit and we were introduced by a coupon received in a mailer. There is a $6 valet charge. The lunch prices are comparable to other ocean view restaurants and the menu has a variety of choices. The outdoor area is right at the beachside and inside there is a view from every location. We definitely will return to this charming, well appointed restaurant with dishes as tasty as they are appealing. It’s the epitome of oceanside dining.
The view is amazing. We were seated promptly but our waiter did not greet (we waited for nearly 10 minutes) while others guests seated after us were helped. We actually had to flag another waiter for help. Otherwise we would still have been waiting. Not sure if it had anything to do with us being the only same sex couple outside in the terrace. The food was not bad, not great, have been to other restaurants serving similar dishes for far less.
Very Nice! Thank you for accommodating your table size and time!
slow service, mediocre food, good location on the beach in Del Mar but lacking in ambiance, not outstanding.
One of the very few times the service was not excellent. Waitress was definitely having a bad day.
This is our go to restaurant every time we are visiting family in Del Sur. And unless it’s a late dinner after dark we dine outside with great reviews of the ocean.
The best steak and lobster I’ve ever had! A fabulous meal
Food was amazing and sitting by the ocean in Feb. was a treat.
We had dinner on the outside by the concrete overseeing the ocean as the sunset was ongoing; great ambiance. The swordfish dinner was perfect and the dessert was very good. Amanda, our server, was outstanding. The selected wine as perfection.
Overall a great unique experience to be repeated.
Very nice evening - hosting family from out of town - they had a great experience - sat outside but plenty warm - in fact had to ask them to turn the heat down since we were actually hot. Sea bass was very good
We add to add 2 more people in our party and they so graciously accommodated us! Impressive!
Great time! The food was good and quite affordable. Portions were filling. Waiter very Knowledgeable, and honest. Didn’t over sell but showed interest in our preferences and matching that up with the menu. Attentive but not overbearing. Bus staff a little eager to pick up but manageable. Ambiance to die for! Parking was convenient and Valet affordable.
This is a must on your date list or if your showing off San Diego...
Everything about this restaurant was great. One of my favorite dining experiences in the past few years. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the area.
Went there for a Valentine’s Day dinner. We had to wait even though we had reservations. The food was extremely over priced for what you get. If you have special dietary restrictions like Keto diet forget about this place. We will not be back nor recommending it to anyone!
food took awhile to come out and some of it was cold
Our server was outstanding. Great personality a lot of fun. The manager always comes and greets up every time we go there. He is very kind. It’s a beautiful location right on the beach in Del Mar. Isn’t a bad table in the building.
Waterfront location was outstanding. Plenty of heaters for nite time outdoor seating. Service was outstanding and all food was prepared to perfection. Strongly recommended for fine dining!!!!
Beautiful location right on the beach overlooking the water. Would be a great place to come to for a sunset. While the location was great, the food was average. Nothing special. It’s not a destination restaurant for the food, but I would go just for the location.
Daughters birthday, as a family we go to the Poseidon for special occasions throughout the year and are never disappointed.
Love the patio no matter time of year
We’ve lived in Del Mar 23 years now and have seen the changes the Poseidon has gone through. Always great atmosphere and nice escape from the loud poor service restaurants encountered with large groups.
Poseidon is always welcomed our large family and provided excellent service and food/drink.
A very special place, brought our 80+ parents, they loved it.
