Had a great Happy Hour at Sbicca. Lovely patio and the bar and restaurant has a great ambiance. The view of the ocean is wonderful,as well. Service was excellent, the wine was perfect, and the warm brownie with espresso ice cream was to die for! It's a place I'll keep returning to.

Was in Southern Call recently on business and my business colleague visited Sbicca for dinner. The pork prime rib looked interesting, so I tried it. It was good, very good, but wish i had tried a fish dish since we were so close to the water. Awesome views, nice cool spot, and Del Mar is a little slower pace than... More

We went here for lunch today and it was great! We were sat on the upper level which has a great view of the ocean. I had the turkey burger with truffle fries. The portions were good and the quality of the food was excellent. My co workers tried the philly cheese steak, the grilled mahi mahi sandwich, the genoa... More

This is our go to brunch place in Del Mar. A mimosa and a nice Sunday brunch is always a win win. The popovers are one of our favorite things!!! Enjoy the view on the patio!

My son and his girlfriend and I had brunch here on a Sunday and it was good. Our server was a little in the weeds, but his personality covered for it well. The meal was good and who can beat brunch in Del Mar.

I would have given 3.5 out of 5 if I could give a half star. We were sat at a beautiful corner table on the second floor with a great view. The setting and service were both excellent. The food was the low point, which was average at best, however I wouldn't recommend not going because the food is only... More

I came only for a dink, but couldn't resist to order the crème brulee. Delicious with the strawberries! The service is friendly and the outdoor seating is very inviting. Will be back for lunch or dinner!

We had a great lunch here. We sat outside looking out at the ocean and felt so relaxed and peaceful. The service was good. I would absolutely go back.

The happy hour is the only way to go, and from the crowd, I think everyone local knows it. The wine prices and selections are expensive, expansive, and extreme. Someone here has a very big ego and expects everyone else to agree. I don't. There is a pork prime rib on the menu that is very good and worth the... More

Super friendly staff and a fantastic selection of happy hour apps and drink specials. Randomly stopped by our first afternoon while staying at L’Auberge Del Mar and went back the next day!
