Good seafood choice in Del Mar--Fantastic views

Food was generally good, with some great sides. Drinks were excellent. Views are fantastic. Service suffered because of overflow from the racetrack.

Went there a few days ago. Maybe I just chose badly but the Thai inspired seafood dish lacked any hiont of spice, and was very disappointing. My friends did a little better though./ Very noisy and very crowded. Parking is a nightmare

Recently, my wife and I had lunch at the Brigantine in Del Mar, Ca. This restaurant provides for a view of the Del Mar Racetrack as well as a view of the ocean and the tidal basin. This was our third or fourth visit to this location. Food and Service remain constantly above average. Valet parking is necessary at a... More

We had a gift certificate for this restaurant and used it on a day without any races at the track. We thought it would be less crowded, but it was packed and very noisy. We had a great table on the outside deck with a great view. Had the fish and chips and it was very average, nothing special. Waiter... More

This place is well known for their classic fish tacos. In the bar, they serve a variety of tacos al a carte. My friend and I ordered the classic, swordfish and Mahi tacos. Nice to have choices. I ordered a Jalapeno Bloody Mary and was very disappointed. No heat and the tomato juice/mix was thin. However, there are lots of... More

Husband and I shared the daily special of grilled halibut with asparagus and mushroom risotto. I thought it was cooked perfectly. The other couple with us shared the fish tacos and the coconut shrimp which they both enjoyed. Be aware that they charge $4 for each item that is shared. Parking was also valet only.

Great bar, great applies and wonderful menu. A good place for hanging out at the bar or patio and taking in all the sights. Or getting a table to enjoy fine dining. I had a great halibut dinner and I shared part of a NY strip steak of my granddaughter's. I would order both again and not feel guilty for... More

I like to go sit on the deck and enjoy happy hour. The place is busy during racing season, so we go off season. It has a great location.
