The minute you walk into Poseidon, you’ll be swept by the fabulous view. You couldn’t be closer to the sand and the beach than sitting at Poseidon on their beautiful outdoor patio. With such a spectacular ocean view, you’ll experience breathtaking sunsets and during the right season even catch a glimpse of the whales migrating up or down the coast. The bar offers a large circular firepit, which is nice on those chilly fall or winter nights. Off to the side of the bar is a split level dining room offering every table a panoramic view of the beach and the ocean. For decades, Poseidon has delighted both local San Diegans and the tourists that love the beach.

    We had a wonderful experience! Oscar was our server, and he was great. We were celebrating my girlfriends birthday, and he made it extra special for her. My only regret is that I didn’t make an earlier reservation because the sun was setting just as we we arrived.

    Restaurant was recommended to us as one of best in San Diego area. It truly was. We sat outside on cooler night but the heater kept it so comfortable. Food selection was wonderful, we split the seafood platter with sides and it was substantial. Everything was so tasty and unique. John was our waiter and is one of the best ever. Friendly, good suggestions, made us feel so welcome. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    The view of the ocean on the patio was outstanding. The fish tacos were enjoyable. The server could be more friendly. When I asked for coffee after the meal, I seemed to get a perturbed gesture and look on the face and we weren’t there even the 1 1/2 max for 2 people.

    Obviously, you cannot fault the view of the sun descending into the ocean. But the food and service are equally exquisite: Lobster claws as a first course followed by Mahi Mahi and scallops with a lobster cream sauce. Just beautiful.

    Went there for my Fiancee's birthday. The staff was very friendly and everyone wished us happy birthday. We were sat outside near the beach - we arrived about 30 minutes before the sunset, and we were able to enjoy wine and appetizers as the sun went down. Very good place with friendly staff, good food, great ambiance.

    FOOD WAS HORRIBLE and way overpriced. You can do better. The bread and spread plate was NOT what I had remembered and there was barely anything to eat on it. SO BAD! Only the free dessert from kind staff was good at your fireplace.

    We had a wonderful dinner here. Started with the calamari appetizer, which isn't like most calamari starters -- it's finger-sized pieces of calamari instead of rings. It was given a light fry and served with a piquant cole slaw and tangy dipping sauce. The Greek salad was excellent and big enough that we split it and both had plenty. I had a special, Chilian sea bass with a side of scallops. Fresh and well-prepared, not overdone. My husband had a steak, which came cooked as he'd ordered it and was quite good. Service was excellent -- attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We're looking forward to dining here again. And if you want to have a beachside table, this is really the place for that!
