Such a pleasant setting. Sbicca's is classic Del Mar meeting place. I eat there often. The salmon was exceptional, as always.
Great place to eat! Very good food, served pretty quickly and nice ambiance. Only 1 complaint about service: server stopped offering us water, and then took almost everything off the table, which seemed they wanted us to leave. But this was at nights end, with some empty tables around us, and some still occupied. So why the rush?
Excellent in every way! Great appetizers and entrees. Half price wine was an unexpected bonus. Fun evening!
Can't beat Sbicca in Del Mar for their combination of views of the ocean at sunset, delicious food, attentive service, and fair prices. Besides being delicious the menu is wide ranging and unique with a combination of asian, American modern, and casual dishes. The starters are terrific and tempting to try all of them. The entree menu runs from modern adaptions of classics on the one side and casual. My recent favorite is the grilled salmon tacos from the casual menu.
The staff is lovely, the food fantastic, and ambiance great.
We arrived a bit early (15 minutes), they seated us right away anyway. Service was impeccable, truly above and beyond (thanks, Grady!). The crab cake appetizer was to die, for, we all very much enjoyed our entrees (salmon, steak stir-fry, filet mignon, chicken parm, kid's steak and fries), and the brussels sprouts side was killer. Outstanding food, a view of the ocean, great service...all made for a wonderful evening. First time there, I'll be going back.
The blue fin tuna was outstanding and large enough portion for full meal next night!
IKts was odd that I took my wife , with 2 of our teenagers, on Mother's Day...yet, no one said Happy Mother's Day to her!
Everything else was good!
Great food with very nice view from the upper deck.
Hadn’t been to Sbicca since the beginning of the pandemic except for one take out order.
We went there for mothers’ day and had a great time. Great service, great food. The steak tacos were outstanding...
We loved it! Everything was fabulous. The place was busy so the service got a little slow.. but SUPER friendly.
Everything we had was delicious and our server was great (personable, knowledgable). We had a great table on the rail and could see the ocean.
Food was excellent and our waiter Vinny was fabulous. Overall great experience. We are locals and go often. Will return soon.
Brought out of town coworkers here for dinner. Sat on the 2nd floor and had a great view of the sunset.
Dinner and drinks were fantastic. Everybody was members of the clean plate club!
Everything was great, super accommodating and really handled the kids well. The food was great
We loved the atmosphere! The view from upstairs was great and the dinner was excellent.
One of our very favorite Del Mar Restaurants! Always delicious and great service. Great for dinner, lunch or sunset cocktails and nibbles! Highly recommend.
We come here often and it never disappoints! Vinnie is an outstanding server and we will always request him.
Outstanding food and service.
It was a very good experience for a local restaurant. We will be back soon!
We had such a great dinner, we went back 2 nights later. Excellent beet salad, great crab cakes served w roasted corn and superb ahi poke. My current favorite restaurant in Del Mar.
We love Sbicca! The food is consistently excellent in this Covid world of hard to find, quality ingredients. Sbicca is a treat for first time visitors, and it's a welcome respite from other restaurants that have trimmed their offerings in recent months. There's a changing menu that has something for everyone.
Food delicious! So happy to go eat out safely for the first time in a year.
Good food, good service, good drinks....what else could you ask for?
We were a few minutes late and they told us they had to give our reserved table away. But they seated us anyway shortly after in the way back room with no ambiance and stuffed with people like sardines. Then we sat there with no sever for 10 minutes and decided to leave. So not going back there again. This is why restaurants go out of business and they deserve it.
Tables ARE NOT 6 feet apart at all. Tables have not been moved or rearranged since pre-COVID times at all.
Great location on upstairs deck for sunset. Heaters & even a fleece blanket. Great food and service, one of my long time faves in north county.
Our server was great - as usual but very attentive and we also appreciated being in an open-aired inside room!
Great variety for food and drinks! Second floor has such a pretty view of the coast, and the staff is great!
All was perfect. Server couldn’t have been more delightful( Chelsea ) and food was prompt and excellent.
This place stands the test of time and is a much better option than its new, glitzy neighbor across the street.
Well run place!!
Good food and good service. Can become crowded and a bit noisy at peak hours near the bar or outside in front. Quieter upstairs and along the side.
So great to be fining out again! Just like old time. Food and drinks were top notch! Chef accommodated a vegan guest. Great night!
The food was fabulous but our server was AMAZING! Knowledgeable and fun. It made our experience better.
All of our choices were outstanding. My short ribs were so delicious and my date got the sea bass which was equally scrumptious!
I did indicate that the occasion was for a birthday and I’m surprised the server didn’t mention it but oh well. I only mention that because it was his 50th.
I would go back again in a heartbeat.
We celebrated my mom's 60th and the staff made it wonderful. They helped us surprise her with a cake and let us set up some table decor as well, even though they were super busy on easter.
This is our 2nd visit in the past three weeks. The food was excellent and the service even better. We asked to be seated at an upstairs table and fortunately one was available. Thanks for the pork shoulder special. It was more than one person could eat but I forced myself! We will be back.
Great food - great wine selection - great ambiance in the village of Del Mar. If you have not been, we recommend that you take it in.
Wonderful table, food, service and location!
