Happy Hour has a great, lower cost menu. While all Del Mar restaurants offer great happy hour menu's, you cant get more for your money than Sbicca's burgers. They match any burger I have ever had, add a salad or their fantastic sweet potato fries and waddle out of the restaurant. You can also look at the Pacific Ocean the... More

Tight space. Not a lot of room. Hard to find parking. Great spot. Watch sundown. Wait staff real slow. Food great good. Pricing ok. Not coming back.

Been going there for years. Owner Dan Sbicca prides himself on having a progressive list. Also a fair corkage policy and had price days the happy hour burger for a ridiculous 6 bucks is big juicy with fries or salad. Sit on the deck for a great experience.

This was our first visit to Del Mar and I am so glad we went. Sbicca has such a cool vibe and the service there is really top notch. All of the food was really fresh and the selection on the menu was excellent. The wine choice was great and my Dad really enjoyed the pickle bloody mary that he... More

We go there almost every weekend for happy hour (late weekend lunch). The selection of drinks and food at very attractive prices, particularly relative to the quality, is great. Then take a walk on Del Mar beach for sunset and head home.

We went to Sbicca last night for the first time during Restaurant week. The food was excellent! I wasn't enthused about our salad, it was chopped up finely so it didn't make eating the salad as easy but overall I really enjoyed everything. The grouper was outstanding!!!

This is a beautiful restaurant with a view of sunsets over the Pacific Ocean We were seated in the dining room, although there were other choices on the patio and upstairs. The dining room was cozy with a fireplace which was appreciated on a cool night. We started with a cocktail we had selected from an extensive cocktail and wine... More

I read the reviews before having dinner here and was expecting more. The food was good but nothing special for sure and not worth the high prices. Had a table upstairs where it was pretty loud even without all the tables being occupied, was hard to have a conversation without shouting. Our server was not very friendly either. Maybe it... More

Everyone's food was delicious actually - waitstaff lovely - not the cheapest place to eat in Del Mar but it is not overpriced. Great people watching and views too. - perfect start to our Christmas break. Loved it - will definitely be back - perhaps... More
