Incredible food with equally-incredible views and atmosphere.
I highly recommend the Poseidon. The reservation system using open table is very user friendly.
Amazing service, view and food!! Only negative was the party next to us was very loud😟 People need to be more aware of others!
BEAUTIFUL view, right on the beach, food was great, service excellent. Will definitely go back and would recommend to others. The valet is $6 but very worth it as street parking is limited and paid parking lot across the street can run high if your meal runs long.
Couldn’t ask for a better morning Brunch. Outside on the beach in Del Mar and all the people enjoying themselves once again.
End of work for the summer.
Enjoyed the view. Good food and lemon drop martini.
Food was good but portions very small for the price.
We had a lovely dinner celebrating our 25th anniversary!!
Had great fish and fish tacos. Nice wine and beer selections. Incredible view!
Both of us ordered Eggs Benedict. Egg slightly undercooked. Hollandaise sauce lacking richness, thickness and acidity. Served on thin slices of bland ham and not Canadian bacon. My prior three times for dinner was excellent. This was my first brunch. Brunch
As usual service was phenomenal, you simply can’t beat the views and food was perfect, thanks again guys for another great meal!!
Awesome lunch - great service delicious food an amazing view.
Delicious food! love this place, every time. Tiffany, our server was especially nice - we will request one of her tables next time. Thank you.
You can’t beat the patio on the ocean! Friendly staff, good service, nice food and easy valet parking.
Always a great experience dining here. And the location can’t be beat!
Make reservations early and if weather is good, ask for outdoor patio dining. Great food and beach scenery. Depending on weather over the ocean at sunset time, you might even see a Green Flash.
Best view in Del Mar! Right on the ocean on the best beach in Southern California. Watch the surfers, sunbathers and birds enjoy the waves, sun and sand. The food was good and service was perfect.
A quintessential Southern California beach dining experience!
Be sure to request an outdoor 2nd story patio table for an unobstructed view of the beach, the surf, and the Pacific Ocean!
The food is delicious and elegantly prepared.
Not inexpensive, so you may want to save it for a special occasion, including the first date with someone very special. In fact, if that is the case, try to get a later reservation so you will still be feeding each other chocolate lava cake and sipping coffee for a quintessential sunset into the ocean and maybe even a green flash.
Gorgeous oceanfront dining along with fantastic menu selections. The Maine Diver Scallops and Pistachio Crusted Salmon were delicious. Great service from Valerie, and entire staff!
Food is fantastic. Service is impeccable. And the view of the ocean is amazing.
Not enough umbrellas to shade the area from the sun
It's always amazing to be able to enjoy a nice meal on the beach while watching the sun set.
We make reservations for Poseidon every time we visit family in San Diego. Over the years we’ve always had a 5 star experience.
I am from NY so this was my first time out in San Diego and wanted to cap it off with a nice date-night dinner. Food was amazing and the outdoor dining right on the beach which we couldn’t ask for much more!
Husband birthday. Great day
Love Poseidon, great for locals
Great as usual.
Excellent service, food, ambiance and a spectacular view of the ocean, surfers, walkers, etc. Loved the outdoor seating. Very romantic.
We drove to Poseidon specifically for the fillet mignon, which we were told had been permanently removed from the menu. We had the special which was a flat iron steak. Terribly spicy and I had heart burn all night. I wish I had sent it back but it took so long to get our food, and we were hungry. I guess they tried to hide the fact that the steak had no taste.
Very disappointed in the special.
And we have been coming the the Poseidon for over 30 years. I guess we will not be going so often.
The food, the ambiance, the service, and all ocean front. Can’t beat that!!
I had reserved a table outside seaside to celebrate my engagement.
1. Didn’t get the seaside table I requested even though the people on the seaside were about to leave(they left within 10 minutes) but by then I didn’t want to make a big deal and ruin the occasion.
2.not sure why you ask on line if the guest is celebrating a special occasion if you don’t do anything about it.
3. We ordered a chaser salad which was small and plain,the calamari which didn’t taste like calamari and were soggy,I requested my meat to be almost raw and it was over cooked.
I hope this review doesn’t go to waste and you also remedy this problem I had
would have liked a couple more varieties of fish to choose from but what we had was awesome. They turned the heaters on for us outside or it would have been a bit chilly.
More cover from sun would help
The waiter didn’t even realize he was supposed to serve our table, so it took quite some time before anyone even greeted us after we sat down. The request to be next to the ocean wall was ignored even though several tables were open next to it at our 5pm reservation time.
Then the waiter didn’t write down our order. Entirely skipped our appetizer and never realized we never received it. Noisy even though it wasn’t the dinner rush. Overall kind of over priced for an ok outdoor dining experience. The tables were very close together still.
Had a birthday dinner with family. Valet was personable and quick. Waitress was helpful, funny and knowledgeable about menu items. We sat outside and watched sunset before meal. Staff turned on heaters for all patrons outdoors no pressure to leave it was a very pleasant experience!
Perfection. Beautiful day on the patio. Food was fabulous. Service was wonderful. Couldn't have had a better meal or service
Enjoyed a great lunch sitting outdoors in full view of the ocean. Wonderful afternoon!
