nice place very expensive - paying for... the view?

The view is very nice - parking is difficult so prepare for mandatory 5 dollar parking valet fee + tip. The food is PF Chang level - the best part was deserts were outstanding - better than the main course. The servers are very nice. The view is great if they dont have the translucent plastic... read more

We arrived and the bar was crowded. That was fine for happy hour. However there was only two servers. The worst part was that management allows small children in the bar. Six kids under age ten were running around. Screaming and yelling as ther parents enjoyed happy hour our party of eight were shocked. The food here is no,longer the... More

Right on beach in Del Mar. Open and airy. Menu balanced between surf and turf. Great wine list. Chelsea a perfect server. Thick clam chowder. Colleague had tasty short ribs. I enjoyed Jamaican rubbed swordfish. Could have been a bit more forceful but still savory. And the piece de resistance? A mother and baby whale playing close to shore as... More

We've visited Del Mar a few times over the past years for business conferences and we always make a point to get to Poseidon for lunch, drinks - AND a walk on the beautiful beach. When I think of going to Del Mar, I think of taking a walk along this beach. We love the atmosphere and the outdoor seating.... More

We had a delicious dinner tonight. We arrived at 6 pm, with a reservation, and were promptly taken to our table overlooking the Pacific. Our server Kevin was pleasant and extremely helpful. The Coconut shrimp appetizer was great, the cioppino and salmon salad main courses were well prepared and delicious and the chocolate gelato was a nice way to end... More

Many say 'Jake's', we say Poseidon. Basically next door to each other, in our opinion, Poseidon is a friendlier place with excellent food and a great view. The porch is right on the beach and you can enjoy your dinner and watch the sun set. Such a great time.

Poseidon has decent food but its best quality is its location. The views are absolutely amazing! We were a little disappointed in that they were out of the Poseidon Benedict during our visit and they don’t allow substitutions of any kind. While this place was decent, we ate at Jake’s (located next door) the following morning and found Jake’s to... More

We went with friends and family for breakfast. Lovely restaurant with a strong following. We were among the first there gathered and chatting with other patrons before it opened for the day. Our server was pleasant and the food was super yummy! We will be going back in the future!

We had a very special family dinner on April 18th with a party of 12. We had a great meal overlooking the Pacific. The ocean had bright lights from the restaurant and it made for a beautiful setting. The food was very good and everybody was very happy with their meal. The service was excellent and we had a great... More

Visited Poseidon twice during my stay in Del Mar and both experiences were different. Both times were large parties.... The first time was great - great service, drinks and food. Second time - we sat outside, hoping to enjoy the view and beach. The service was awful. One of our drinks never came out, server was extremely slow (seemed like... More
