This is about the most perfect place in Del Mar for sunset appetizers and cocktails. Plan ahead with reservations for dinner and it will make a for a San Diego perfect evening.

Or should that be apologies to Bruce Springsteen.... OK, if you've read this far, you're hooked. My Poseidon Adventure (can you tell my age yet?) consisted of showing up (with reservation) and getting a great table overlooking the ocean - complete with a gorgeous sunset. What else could I see? When I first got there - not much - just... More

Went to Poseidon for a business dinner while in Del Mar. Had a party of 6 and sat out on the porch. At 6:00 the sun was blinding - but by 7:00 it was worth enduring because the sunset was awesome (although I guess Poseidon's didn't really have an influence on that). The food was very good. 3 of us... More

We drove up from San Diego for lunch and fell in love with what a clean, upscale, developed town Del Mar is. Having Googled for scenic views for dining near San Diego, we didn't quite know what to expect from The Poseidon, but it was a pleaser. We enjoyed seafood and the sea. Would certainly return often if in the... More

After enjoying this neighborhood gem for over 30 years for breakfast and lunch I decided to dine for dinner. My husband and I took our sons for a birthday celebration who both ordered Surf n Turf. The server quickly pointed out the cost of Surf n Turf which made the boys feel embarrassed so they ordered filet steak only. 45... More

Where the locals go to brunch. This is a way to take in some good food and San Diego at its best. Watch the surfers on a Sunday while you enjoy a bloody mary, sun, and feeling like your on the beach.

This is a true "California " restaurant. Besides offering great food, you can watch people on the beach, surfers in the ocean and if you are lucky see a flight of pelicans perform an air show. Valet parking available.

When in doubt, the Poseidon Restaurant/Bar is a great option. The food and drinks are awesome even if they weren't, the view and sound of the ocean from the patio would make up for it. The brunch menu has something for everyone and the casual atmosphere makes it a great family place, as well as an easy place to go... More
