❤️❤️❤️❤️ Always a joy. The food is amazing. Pork Belly Eggs Benedict, OMG! Fantastic. Try the French Toast with raspberries and blue berries. Just like ordering dessert.
Perfect night, great food, great service, great spot
Lovely time. Totally perfect night.
We we’re celebrating a family birthday over lunch. The food and service were both exceptional. Well worth the 90min drive from Orange County. Our time at Poseidon exceeded expectations!
The waiter Eric was very efficient and knowledgeable regarding the food preparation. The salmon was cooked to perfection.
We have been herebefore and really enjoyed it. It was our GO TO place for friends visiting from Oregon....Again it was a very special afternoon dining with you. Will be back for again for sure.
Sitting on the patio has the greatest view. Food was great and service was on par.
This was the most expensive mediocre meal I have had in a long time. Our Waitress, Teresa, was great, but it was downhill from there. The crispy calamari looked and tasted like it came from Von's frozen food section. My ahi tuna was probably frozen and the texture was mushy, and the taste was bland in addition to being lukewarm when delivered. My son ordered the surf and turf, which he also did not care for and arrived lukewarm. The best thing was the creme carmel which they did give us complimentary as this was a birthday.
I had not been here in 2 years. The view from the terrace is wonderful, but the food and the price did not make up for the view. The cuisine has definitely gone downhill.
The ceviche and the sea bass are wonderful. I would pass on the Calamari as it was the fish stick type. Ocean front seating is the reason we go, the sea bass and the ceviche is a bonus. The service is great.
Jennifer was our server and she did a wonderful job. Not only was she waiting on several tables, but we observed she also had to clear the tables and wipe them down after the guests left. She was very pleasant, and equally important she got our orders correct.
Everyone was polite, love being right on the beach, food was great. Dishes were a little costy, but i suppose so is beach front rent. ;-)
Wonderful food and service.
Great table outside.
Wonderful service, excellent food, a little pricey, wonderful atmosphere
After a horrific meal the night before in Newport Beach we had a fabulous meal at Poseidon with cousins whom had been there several times . Patio is oceanfront. Food was excellent ! Service by Sam was excellent!
If you like fish I highly recommend the seafood salad!
We definitely will be back!
Poseidon is a superb choice for any occasion. The ambience is unmatched, the food is excellent, and the service is extremely attentive.
Great venue with excellent food and service. Always a favorite stop!
As always, great experience. Wonderful view, excellent service
Service was a bit harried and the prices have increased significantly post-quarantine. Still the atmosphere can't be beat!
Pistachio crusted Brie appetizer was AMAZING! Calamari good (I like mine Crispy so..theirs was breaded and not crispy but my son Loved it ..matter of preference). Clam chowder very good and Pojo burger per my son was AMAZING..not often he can get a burger cooked as requested (RARE)..Highly recommended. Can Not beat the ambiance and service was perfection. 👍👍
Everything was terrific except for one thing . After telling our server that I wasn't interested in a Draft beer , but wanted a bottle ....... she gave me my choices and I ordered . Next she brings out a CAN of my selection and proceeds to POUR it into a Glass !!! ( kind of like a " Draft " beer ... don't ya' Think ? ) . I was incredulous seeing just
how " over-matched " she was by my order , so I just stayed silent and drank on .
Perhaps a little training on " some people like their beer in the ' Glass that it came in "
might help , but the BOTTLE / CAN concept seems pretty basic .
We loved every moment we were at Poseidon. The food, service, and venue are excellent. The only sounds we heard were the waves crashing on the beach.
Excellent service, although the menu seemed somewhat limited to compared to other visits in years past.
Perfect view, perfect service, perfect food! We would def go back!!!
Great food. Amazing location. You really can't get much better.
Very nice outdoor seating. Excellent food and service
Beautiful outdoor dining. Food was delish, service was good.
Great place to meet and eat.
Fish and Chips were excellent! Best I’ve ever had there.
Wonderful food and amazing service. The absolute perfect place to spend an afternoon dining with people you love.
I rated food a 4 much as we love your food. We were very disappointed that you no longer carry Tobin James wines which are some of our favorites. We didn’t think your new reds compare. Bring TJ back and you are our favorite 5 star restaurant.
just about the perfect restaurant
location and ambience outstanding..outdoors, right on the beach
service incredible, as always
food as good as ever
drinks great as well
our go to place in del mar, no doubt about it
Fabulous Sunday brunch on the beach in Del Mar. Best French toast I have ever had. Will definitely return.
Location and ambience are very good, but high prices for so-so food is not a good value. Quality of food fluctuated on every visit and it's NOT getting better..... We do not plan to come back anytime soon.
A favorite beach front restaurant with inside & outside seating. The food is very good with varied choices.
Wonderful meal, excellent service. The Chilean sea bass was perfect, the ceviche was really good and service was great. Didn’t hurt at all that we had a gorgeous view of the Pacific.
Very nice restaurant by the beach. Try to dine around sunset time and the view is awesome!!
My wife and I came here for a nice dinner during Restaurant Week. Our experience was outstanding from the minute that we walked in the door. As we walked to our table, the waitress recommended some dishes on the menu. We took her recommendations and were not disappointed.
We sat alongside the beach and enjoyed the view with our dinner and drinks. Our server, Lupe, was very friendly and the service she provided was impeccable.
All the food and drinks that we had were delicious. Now I remember why we like this place.
We wrapped up our dinner by watching the sunset. This night made us remember why we like this place so much. We will coming back here more often.
Somethings to note: They have valet parking available, they have a separate lunch and bar menu. If you dine here in the evening before sunset, I recommend sitting outside along the beach to get the best sunset view, you will not regret it.
Overall great place for any occasion, drinks with friends, family dinners, and date nights. I highly recommend this place.
This was truly the best menu out of all the SD Restaurant Week participants.
Lovely location, lovely day. My only criticism is that (due to larger necessary distance between table) the umbrellas don't shade you very well. (The umbrellas are anchored and can't be moved.)
Food and service was excellent, I'll be going again!
