We truly enjoyed our evening out with our dog Rosie! We shared plates, coconut shrimp, meatballs, bacon wrapped shrimp, poke ... all delicious ... and the sun was setting as we dined - so amazing!
Wonderful experience at Sbicca. The outside dining was wonderful. Staff is extremely efficient snd super friendly. The bisque was some of the best I’ve ever had. The Aperol spritz was excellent. Highly recommend. Parking can be a challenge.
Amazing service! Food was perfect and waiter made our night!
Fun atmosphere for my daughters bday dinner! Service was excellent!
My short rib was very fatty but overall excellent night!
Excellent food & service by waiter Greg
Couldn’t have been better. And more so the gorgeous outlook and great service. Top notch date venue. Highly recommended
We sat in the upstairs dining area, with a nice view of the ocean, and enjoyed a beautiful day having lunch. Food and service were great. My only suggestion is to use a different and slightly better cut in the steak tacos. Otherwise, another great meal.
Wonderful place to take your out of town guests with a beautiful sunset ocean view. The food was great! We ordered the Crispy Chicken Buns as an appetizer, they are deliciously crispy and doughy with the perfect amount of spice (I'm not into spicy things and they were just right). Dinner we ordered the special of the night - Lobster, Shrimp and Calm Ravioli, Prime 6oz Filet Mignon, Buttermilk Fried Jidori Chicken, and the Sbicca Burger. Everyone loved their dishes. We found street parking fairly close, but there is also paid (inexpensive) parking caddy-corner from the closest street light. We will definitely be back.
Sadly, I feel Sbicca has lost something in the transition coming out of COVID since the last time I was there. Everyone was friendly enough but I felt like COVID has changed the level of attentiveness and the engagement of their staff.
When our food was finally brought to the table, the bearded server (not our waitstaff, Angela, who was great) just put the plates in front of us, not saying a word. Very cold approach.
Dan Sbicca is still one of my favorite restauranteurs but perhaps next time, our experience will be a bit better!
Great food, great service, beautiful view of sunset.
Sbicca was highly recommended to me by a friend. It was mildly disappointing, this is a mixed review. The highlight was the service and the crabcake appetizer. It was very busy, not surprising for a Friday night, and our server was very good. Attentive, informaative and well prepared. The crabcake was excellent, tasty and intersting in preparation.
The downside. The noise was too much. We were outside next to the sidewalk, so not surrounded by tabes. Nonetheless I coud barely hear becasue the table to the side and behind us was so close. A person at that table next me was maybet two feet away. He was loud, their table was loud , it was just difficult to talk.
I had fish tacos, and they were somewhat tasteless. They looked good, but there was too little cabbage for crunch and there just wasnt much flavor to them. My wife had mushroom ravioli and with one exception, it was very good. Unfortunately the aspargus had too much of the reedy end on it and twice, as I shared her plate, I couldn't eat a piece of the asparagus.
The food was great. Poké bowl was awesome and swordfish was amazing. The server was great. The only suggestion I would make is that the people delivering their food should be a little more refined in their presentation. We felt like they were literally running past us and throwing the food at us. If they could have thrown it to the table like a frisbee, they would have. Other than that, everything else was great.
Great service--really nice food with interesting flavors. The location is wonderful because it's within one block to the beach.
Always a fave spot in Del Mar. Everything on the menu is great and it's such a nice location.
Outstanding food. Great service. Nice people. Everything was perfect.
The location is beautiful, staff is friendly and food was absolutely fantastic! We were a party of five and not one person had a single complaint!
We have been to Sbicca many times and we are never disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was thoughtful.
KC went above and beyond to provide us with the best service. Wry polite and attentive
We booked with Open Table, when we arrived we were taken immediately to our table upstairs where we enjoyed Beach-a-Rita's and a spectacular sunset while we waited for our friends. For dinner we ordered the double pork chop which had been sold out (must have been excellent) so we order the short ribs. Delicious and priced right. Our friends ordered salmon. Well presented. Our waiter gave us the table for the whole night, not rushing us. We will return.
Lovely indoor/outdoor dining with excellent food, service and wine menu. We had a perfect lunch.
Always good.. would enjoy a few new entrees, etc
This used to be a go to restaurant for us. Not anymore after last night. The prices have gone up at least 20% from pre-pandemic, about double from other restaurants we've been to. Had the mussels which were $35 for an average size plate and the frites were an added $5! Du Marche in La Jolla is $26 for the same mussels and frites with better ambiance and free bread. The sauce on the mussels was too salty and again no bread to sop up anyway. The salads had by the other diners were too large, too expensive and my wife's salmon salad was weirdly asian flavored without that in the description. Have eaten here literally 50 times in the last 5 years for personal dinners and business dinners, but won't be back anytime soon.
we dined at Sbicca to celebrate my friend's BD. We enjoyed the brunch selections including the famous pop overs. I enjoy sitting upstairs away from the street. Food was excellent. I only wish they would acknowledge my friend's BD which was noted on the reservation. Other than that, we had a positive experience here.
Good food and service. But pretty noisy.
Our main courses were very good, but we ordered the “Special Berry Cobbler” for dessert and it was the worst I’ve ever had. There weren’t any berries in it. It looked and tasted like it was jelly in the middle. The piece was also extremely small, literally two bites each and they charged $10 for it. If you go there, just don’t order the special whatever it is!
The good: Service and the food.
The bad:The host was fairly rude. The noise level at tables near the bar was so LOUD, we couldn't keep a conversation
Good place, somewhat slow service at lunch on a Friday!
This is as good as it gets!!
Sbicca is one of our "go to" places! They deliver consistent quality service and food, with their wine specials on Thursday nights it makes it even more of a great place
This was my second time at Sbicca. The food, drinks and service were outstanding both times. For us, the service was a little too fast as our courses came out at lightning speed. We would have enjoyed a slower pace of service to have more time to enjoy a dinner out. Next time we go, we will just take longer to order to slow things down.
Annual lunch in SoCal is always at Sbicca!!!
Service as top notch as the meals!!!!!
We loved Harry & Ashlyn two days in a week of vacation 🤗♥️♥️
Great evening and even better food and Ambiance. Thanks, Dan!!
Food and service was nothing short of outstanding!
Beautiful location, food and service was amazing. 5 min walk to the beach.
Service was great. View was great!
Great environment. Our waiter was on top of things and the kitchen. Very pleased.
