Our waiter, Michael was outstanding!! I always bring clients there and out of town guests.
Great server!! Made it special got steak and lobster tails!! Beach fun vibe- and outside! Loved it
Great views, love this place for out of town visitors.
Always my go to restaurant as it is located on the beach and has a great patio area. I like how the restaurant opens fully to the patio. The food is always amazing and the service is pretty great all round.
Super nice experience, right OnTheSnow beach 🏖
Birthday. It was nice they provided birthday dessert complementary. Location perfect. Service perfect. Food fair. Actually we had better and tastier food in other waterfront restaurants. I would have given 5 stars if the food taste good but we didn’t like the ciopino sauce. We didn’t like the bread used in burger. We didn’t like the tortillas used with fish tacos. Too bad because the location is the best so far by the beach. If you can do C-level food combined with your beautiful beach location, this place is perfect. We’re not coming back because of the food.
We were celebrating our anniversary and had a table right on the beach. Service and food was outstanding.
We were able to sit on their outdoor patio which is right on the beach. Beautiful views and a spectacular sunset.
Great service as always! Our waiter, Dave, was awesome! Not our first time and definitely not our last.
Great fish and chips, nice ocean view from the patio.
Beautiful ocean view and delicious food! Will return and recommend to friends!!
Meet with friends
Beautiful location on the beach. Great service and delicious food!
Took friends from out of town to a weekday lunch. Had a great table right on the beach. The view was amazing. Our server was so friendly, could t have been nicer. 3 out of 4 of us ordered fish tacos, they were just ok. The other person had fish and chips, a better choice. Still love it, but would order something else next time.
Prompt, courteous service. Quality of food is excellent.
Loved being back at the Poseidon - we live locally but had not gotten together there in quite a while. The prices are higher but the place looks good, good was good and service was great!
The restaurant location is fantastic, the service is good, but the food... it was a big disappointment. The appetizer and main course fish lack flavor. We will not go back.
Birthday meal. Mid afternoon. Great seafood, service, outside with a view of the beach.
Location & ambience is amazing! Every time we’ve been there the food has been excellent o
Met our friends for lunch. They were seated immediately, even tho we were a little late for our reservation.
Great table. I don't think there is a bad table in the whole place. Beautiful view.
Our friends had the fish and chips and the shrimp salad and said they were both very good. I had the calimari sandwich, which was very good and fresh but I would have liked a little more mayo on it. Husband had the fish tacos and said they were very good.
Definitely will be back.
The view, food and ambience are unmatched! Love!
Spectacular view, food was excellent and the service superb!!!!
Absolutely sit outdoors. Right on the sand. And for brunch, Poseidon Benedict for the win.
Went back for that delicious calamari sandwich! This time on buttery toasted bread--very good but liked the roll better:) Still sooo good. French fries--too good (ate too many). About 3 feet from the sand but no need to wash it off:) Perfect location.
Except for the parking situation...scary on a Sat. afternoon when the sign says "valet parking full" So what do you do then? Every conceivable space within a mile is taken. Luckily, several left, which gave us a spot, so hopefully that happens for everyone...
We love dining by the Pacific Ocean and people watching on the beach. Great way to celebrate my birthday with friends.
Great food, great view, great experience. I can say it was an all around outstanding experience. Thanks.
The staff was so friendly and welcoming including the valet team. Our waiter Eric was attentive, had a great personality and expressed his gratitude for being back at work at such a great place. Loved seeing the restaurant packed and thriving. Can’t wait to go back.
Poseidon is on the sand at Del Mar main beach. It has a large outdoor patio with umbrellas to protect from the sun. A hat is a good idea if you are sun sensitive. The seafood is fresh and well-presented. The bar is excellent, as is the wine list. Valets park your car for $6. It is a romantic spot for weekend brunch, lunch or a sunset dinner. Reservations are imperative. If Open Table indicates seating is full when you want to go, call the restaurant. They hold back seating not listed on the website.
Enjoyed a great surfside birthday lunch! Very creative menu. Excellent service!
Professional and polished staff. Overall simply outstanding and worth the drive from Palm Springs!
Great sea bass! Beautiful setting! Can't wait to go back...
Everything was perfect as it should be for the price. Great experience.
Food was delicious but the atmosphere was to die for. We felt like we were on vacation
Fabulous on a beautiful day at the beach
We have been coming to the Poisiden for years. Food is good but not outstanding! Staff seemed stressed and unhappy. The blonde hostess was pulling California cool, did not make eye contact and seemed perturbed we were there 10 minutes early and told us to go to the bar until our actual reservation time! First impression was not good. As I said the wait stafff stressed and unfriendly. We went to several other restaurants in the area where staff was friendly and hospitable. I spoke with the manager and she was pleasant but couldn’t make up for bad karma. This place has a great view but our experience was a huge let down. As I said food is good but not outstanding. Probably won’t return. Really can’t recommend except for the view. It was a wedding anniversary and birthday but not a good place for celebration. They did not acknowledge although I included that in our reservation.
terrible calamari after highly recommended by server. Forgetful server couldn’t do even simple things like getting water, lemons.
Great food, service, ambiance and right on the ocean! Can't ask for more except sunshine.
First time eating at here and it was a most enjoyable experience. Our waitress was great, the food so flavorful and the view of the beach is fun and relaxing. Look forward to eating at Poseidon again!
