The food is always so good! Great service, too. We had a great date night.
There was an extremely loud and obnoxious guest seated near us that was so annoying. He ruined our evening
Beautiful sunset, warm heaters on the patio, good (not fantastic but good), friendly and fast service.
Excellent food and service. thurs 50% off wine special a pleasant bonus. Ambiance and setting are super.
Everything was extremely tasty and the service was great. Would definitely recommend for a date night.
We used to go to Sbicca all the time but the chef had left and the food wasn’t as good so we had stopped going. We decided to try them again for Valentine’s Day and it was wonderful. The whole menu sounded amazing and it was. Everything we had was absolutely delicious, I had the lobster and shrimp bisque and sesame crusted ahi and my husband had the coconut shrimp and scallops. I stole a scallop and it was the most perfectly cooked scallop I have ever had. We also split shishito peppers and they were really good they had a slight taste of lemon juice that Ihave never had on shishito peppers but it worked really well. For dessert we had the flourless chocolate cake and a lemon bar they were amazing sweet but not overly sweet. Our server was also really good he knew the menu and helped my husband settle on what to order when he was debating between a couple dishes and occasionally checked in when we had our food to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. I am super excited to start coming here more often again.
Sbicca was very good! The service was amazing and our party of 6 got a private room at no charge. Our food was amazing, and the desert was also delicious. Great place to go with a small or large group while visiting Del Mar!
We had good service, great food, warm temperatures and sunshine with ocean view. Can't beat that.
Great service and great food!! Will definitely be returning
Fantastic front patio with views of the sea through the trees. Service was outstanding and the cocktails and food well done!
The quality of the food and taste was awesome. The beet salad was way too small for the price. That salad was my main meal and went home starving. My hubby’s burger with the salad was excellent and just right size for a meal.
Suggest providing half and full size salads. The small salad I had is definitely a half with it half the price.
The salad didn’t even include a bread roll or crackers with it. Very disappointing.
The Benedict was incredible, I love the chipotle honey hollandaise! Our server was helpful and prompt, we got to sit outside in the sunshine and everything was delicious.
This was the only reservation I could find the day of in Del Mar, I now know why: Burnt crab cake. $18 Benedict was a joke, menu description highlighted pancetta but there were three bacon bit size sprinkles on top w a few potatoes. Skip the food here. Servers were pleasant. Maybe have a glass of wine if nowhere else open but skip the food.
Awesome as always! Been coming here for 20 years. 💚
The food is fantastic! We were put in between two large loud groups and felt a bit uncomfortable with Covid, 7 on one side and 6 on the other. Our server was very nice but hard to get our drinks with the other two large parties demanding attention for food and drinks. Still a great place, but ask about seating.
Had a really lovely dinner out with a friend for the first time in a really long time. Sbicca did not disappoint, as usual -- great, attentive service and delicious cuisine. My only concern was that there did not seem to be much of an occupancy limit being enforced for the indoor dining. I did not feel uncomfortable about it personally, but just want to make sure all the restaurants are following the guidelines rigorously so that things don't get shut back down :)
As always the service was amazing and the food was awesome! They easily can accommodate gluten free preparations. Will return to Sbicca for sure :)
We are big fans of Sbicca, and normally the experience is excellent. However, our visit on Saturday was very average, perhaps because the restaurant was very busy. The sea bass was overcooked and tough. On the positive side, the service was fast and good (as always). We're still big fans, but this experience wasn't Sbicca's usual performance.
Always my favorite spot in Del Mar! Thank you for having us! We love Sbicca!
Beautiful day & food on the deck overlooking the sea!
we had a BD brunch get together with 4 close friends. We sat upstairs with the beautiful ocean view. The tables were well spaced apart. Server was professional, wore her mask during services. Food and service was excellent, will return.
Great time with friends. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was very fun
Mason did an excellent job as our server. Very attentive.
It’s been a while since I’ve dined here. Food was great - table of 6 - ate tapas style and got to try almost one of everything. Crispy chicken buns were a stand-out - so delicious! Truffle Mac and cheese was another favorite! Service was attentive. We’ll definitely be back!
Service by staff and management was top notch!!! Made it a great birthday celebration!!! The food was fantastic as always!
Great food and service!!!!
The hostess was very rude upon arriving this souring the experience from then on. Luckily the waiter was fantastic so he saved it. Our fries were cold and hard but were replaced immediately.
Food is good, but not what I would expect at their prices.
Great views and great food. A bit pricey
Good experience. For the price point our entree salads should have come with complementary bread. That’s why 4 stars instead of 5.
Best restaurant in Del Mar!
Food was delicious. Diners appropriately separated.
We've had great experiences in the past, but it seems like they didn't have enough servers, as everyone seemed rushed.
We had a lovely evening at Sbicca! Our Pasta Bolognese was plenty to share along with a salad and soup. Make sure you have the chocolate chip bread pudding for dessert! Casey was an excellent server.
Never disappoints. This is a great place for friendly staff and quality food.
One of my favorite places in Del Mar. I love this place very much, and always have a great time with my friends and family.
Excellent all the way around....food, drink, service
The food was great. I can't have Gluten and many dishes are easily prepared gluten free.
Sbicca has been on my restaurants to try for a long time. This list is of the finest restaurants in San Diego. I don't think Sbicca makes the grade, although it is a nice restaurant.
Just a girls’ lunch out. Great service and awesome food. Dog-friendly and great outdoor space.
