Best meal in Del Mar

I had a great dinner there and it was very reasonably priced as well as tasty. We didn't have a reservation on Saturday night and got in quickly. Service was great and the meals were outstanding. Highly recommend it!

Several neat rooms, some with great views during daylight hours. Wonderful outdoor area, weather permitting. Service was terrific, nice wine list. Food was good but not necessarily memorable. A very fun, go-to place.

I live in Del Mar and have eaten at Sbicca dozens of times and never had a bad meal. The Port Prime Rib is to die-for, and you won't find it in many restaurants. They also serve a wonderful breakfast which you can have on the steet-side patio if you arrive early on a weekend. Should you want to have... More

Sbicca is somewhat unassuming from the street, but once inside you see the appeal. We dined here while in town for a girl's trip and everyone of us ordered the Diver Scallops - delicious!

Winter time on a Monday night so quiet but food still top notch. Great chowder and lovely sea food and meet dishes - attentive and friendly service. No corkage charge on a Monday night either - bottle shop nearby. A good choice in the middle of town.

My friend and I dined here on October 31. It was somewhat busy, but our (costumed) waitress was friendly, and the wait time was not too bad. Good food.

It's always tough to serve a large group but the staff a Sbicca seemed to have no issues at all with our group of about 20. The food was great, and came out (mostly) all at once. Great wine selection. I'll be stopping in when i visit again.
