Great California Cuisine

Setting is directly on the beach in Del Mar. Fresh seafood and a great wine selection. The outside seating is the best. The clam chowder is well worth ordering and is top notch. Valet parking is available, and this is a sure hit if you are in Del Mar.

I went here a few times during my recent visit to CA. the staff were friendly and helpful and the view across the beach was lovely. Unfortunately I didn't get to eat here so can't comment on the food.

We visited this restaurant with some friends, we really enjoyed the drinks especially the margarita, the food was all right, but the location and the bar area is a lot of fun, we didn't get a table outside, maybe next time.

I had the coconut shrimp to start with and the pineapple dipping sauce that came with it was delightful. My entree was the Caesar salad with chicken - very big portion! I could have easily shared it with my friend. My friend had the clam chowder and was very pleased. You cannot beat the sunset view from the bar area.... More

We visited Poseidon in Del Mar because it is one of the few restaurants that are directly on the beach. We did not have a reservation but they found us a table (away from the deck. Get there early for deck seating as the deck is first come fist served and people will linger out there all night). We ordered... More
