My favorite place for happy hour in Del Mar, service is always good, food selections are awesome, good selection of drink, the only issue I have is the sun in the afternoon it is intense on the patio, not enough umbrellas to keep you out of the damaging suns rays. Hopefully next time I am in Del Mar they correct... More

Had 12 to celebrate a birthday and was able to make a reservation. Food and service were both great. Only two things were not perfect. They could not separate the checks and they had nothing to offer the person for a birthday desert. Otherwise it was all good.

Last night four of us went to Sbicca for happy hour. The food was excellent and the prices low. It is the best happy hour menu I have encountered. My wife and I split a burger with sweet potato fries. We also had a spring roll and a crab cake. My Stella was three dollars.we sat on an outdoor deck... More

SBicca is located on trendy 15th St. in Delmar, CA. The restaurant is in an older, sea town building with a patio, bar, alleyway with small tables, a couple of dining rooms and a rooftop, tent-covered dining area. Every place is a nice place to eat but the rooftop allows you to watch the sunset over the ocean. Food was... More

Charming and cozy, however beware if you are seated outdoors along the left side/pathway. For those seated on that side of the table it is a bit like a freeway with all of the comings and goings and was very distracting to our conversation. A young couple seated across from us needed to get a room with their heavy handed... More

The concierge at The Grand Del Mar recommended this place, and it was spot on. Located about a block from Del Mar Beach, this Bisto/Bsr offered some great food. We had a mix of starters. My wife loves Brussel Sprouts and they offered caramelized brussel sprouts that she said were outstanding. Our adult son had the duck confit spring rolls... More

This place is great for happy hour. Excellent food and price is fantastic. Happy hour before 6pm. They have 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sunday and Tuesday. And the staff is great. Danny bartender super nice guy. I highly recommend this place.

An old-time friend of mine took me there for a Birthday lunch and it was a delightful treat. We ate on the rooftop patio, overlooking the ocean view. Our lunches were delicious, especially the desert - limoncello tiramisu - perfectly light for a warm summer day. Will be returning soon with another friend, who has never been there.

We only had a couple of starters as we were happy hour bar hopping but the fish tacos were amazing. Every place on the coast has them but both my wife and felt these for whatever reason were some of the best we've ever had. Huge portions. Sat at the bar and bartender was engaging and made us feel welcome... More
