We came for our second anniversary. Michael, our server, was absolutely incredible. His knowledge of wines and the menu were impeccable. The dessert we had will never be forgotten. Madeline and her vanilla puffed pastry was absolutely heaven. Thank you for making our anniversary so special and one to remember!! We will definitely be back soon!
We love this restaurant! It is always our go to for special occasions. Dave our server was the best he always makes our dining experience fantastic! You can’t beat the ocean view or relaxed atmosphere. The food and cocktails are always good but could use some new additions to the menu.
Wonderful lunch with a dear friend… corner table on the patio is perfection! Wonderful pistachio-crusted salmon and Chardonnay, would do the exact meal again.
Perfect place for lunch or dinner. In July went there for a grad party and excellent dinner out on beach. The sea bass was over the top great. Yesterday had a fun work lunch outside and service, food was excellent! Conversation could be heard and timing of food arrival perfect. Recommend highly!
We made reservations at the Poseidon while at a conference in Carlsbad. From the moment we arrived until we left, the Poseidon exceeded our expectations in every way. Both hostesses were extremely welcoming and nice. I had booked an inside table because I thought it my be cold outside but when we arrived, I asked for an outside table. They didn't hesitate at all and seated the 4 of us at the nicest table outside (end table on the water side). It was quiet, romantic and just absolutely wonderful. Our server was friendly, professional and made very good recommendations. The food was outstanding!
Great place in every way!
We will be back!
Great view. Food was very good. Service staff appeared to be stretched thin
We were celebrating a birthday snd anniversary. The entire evening was amazing .The food was superior, the service excellent, and the setting absolutely perfect. An evening and dinner we will always remember. Thank you
Fantastic from start to finish. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our table outside right on the beach was just perfect and the view was amazing. We really enjoyed the steamed clam appetizer and my Seafood Cobb Salad was so tasty, fresh, and had a generous portion of seafood. Beware of crafty seagulls as one flew off with my box of exceptional leftovers. Pretty memorable finish to a fantastic lunch. Thank you.
I was dissapointed that there was not a selection of entre salads on the menu.
The food was mediocre the ambiance was wonderful
Poseidon is one of our favorite restaurants for a number of reasons:
1-The food is really, really good.
2-Our service (this time from Sam and manager Bobby) is always exceptional.
3- You can't beat being right on the beach.
Food was wonderful ; calamari appetizer and salmon, sea bass, and scallop entrees were all very tasty!
The location is truly one of the best patios in San Diego and maybe all of So Cal. So to have such great, friendly and attentive service and such great food with that waterfront Auckland set view is extraordinary!
Perfect date night! The food was delicious, service outstanding and view breathtaking! Our waiter, Dave, helped us have a night to remember!
A romantic and beautiful spot to have an anniversary. The service was fantastic.
Our waitress and all other staff very accommodating . The view was beautiful and food perfect!
Excellent as always
The restaurant ha such a beautiful view and the waitress was great!!!!!
Removed burger from menu. Not many choices for kids. Also removed break baskets? I guess they are cutting back on the lower priced items which elminates some choices. My kids really wanted the bread basket.
Perfect brunch place. Tasty food. Responsive service. Beach view. Reserve in advance. Only con - Paid valley parking.
I had a brunch with a friend, nice patio by the beach. Service was great!
Reservation was made easy. Fortunately for us we made one since we left an article of clothing there after our meal and we got a call right away to tell us!
So the staff made this fantastic. Oscar, you are the best, as is Dave. Your delightful personalities and excellent service really added to the occasion. The clam chowder was delicious, calamari too. Usually I get the Chilean Sea Bass, which is always excellent, but tonight was over salted and didn't taste as fresh. I'd suggest upgrading the focaccia as your bread of choice, but overall everything was good and the view inspiring.
Poseidon doesn't rely on its fantastic venue to wow its customers. The food is interesting, very good and well presented but the staff made our dining experience special.
Excellent sea bass, ceviche and view!
Good food, Great service and amazing views! 10/10 Will return!
The view is always spectacular. The service was great. Always a good experience.
The view was amazing. Service was also amazing. Food not so much.
I'm not sure which was best ... the food or the view. Both were outstanding!
I ordered fish and chips. I expected a lovely moist piece of cod in batter, but instead received fish sticks which were over baked and over breaded and dry. I could barely see or taste any fish in them. So disappointing as my first time out in a long time. Service was great and ambiance is of course excellent, as always.
Not the experience we we're expecting! My wife's steak was cold when it arrived at our table. After informing the staff and having a bit longer discussion about the steak then what should have been necessary, they offered to cook us another one. The second steak didn't come out for a very long time, all of the rest of our meals were already finished AND the new steak was overcooked. We asked to them bag it and our desserts up that we had ordered already and we left for home. This was a very expensive dinner and not a good experience at all. The view was nice.
The location is amazing. We went for restaurant week and the food was just ok. We go to restaurant week to experience new restaurants at a lower cost to try appetizers, dinner and dessert. The appetizer was just ok, nothing special. I got the corn and poblano soup. Barely any corn in it and not very spicy. My fish was good but the sauce on it was too sweet and the mash underneath was even sweeter and the fish was just covered with a dry lemon and pepper rub, no oil or butter just dry dust. It would have been exceptional with just a beure blanc without all the extra flavoring and none of the rub which was too bitter and dry. The dessert choices were sorbet, panacota (with spices and pepper yuck) and what was suppose to be a butter cake. I’ve had butter cakes many places and they are moist and flavorful of butter and sugar. This was dry and flavorless. We go to restaurant week to find places we want to go to again and pay full price, I wouldn’t go back at these prices for what we received.
Definitely will be coming back! Food (recommend the calamari) and sunset were my favorite. Lots of options for restaurant week menu.
There may not be better pure ocean & beach views in San Diego county than the patio at Poseidon.
Enjoyed a delicious lunch at our favorite beachfront restaurant. Michael provided outstanding service.
Love this place but spend too mich
The food was amazing! The steaks were perfectly cooked. We had a few mishaps with our drinks. But overall great service and experience!
A great beachfront restaurant ! You have to go there!
Last night's dinner was out first visit to Poseidon, and we will be back! The food was excellent, our server (Valerie) was terrific, and the view from the patio can't be beat. We were lucky to have a perfect sunset. The value was acceptable because we ordered from the special Restaurant Week menu. Price would otherwise deter us from going back as often as we might like. Our only issue last night was that it was a cool, breezy evening (my wife wore a jacket) and the heat lamp adjacent to our table blew out and could not be re-ignited, so we took our desserts home because it was too cold to remain outside.
Restaurant week! Food was great! View was perfect!
Great ambiance, the server was terrific and the food excellent.
