This is the first negative review that I've left on Tripadvisor. Four of us ate a late lunch at the Poseidon yesterday. The service was simply awful. We were never offered bread -- we got some after I noticed some on a nearby table and asked for it. One of us ordered a Diet Coke -- we went the whole... More

Good seafood, huge hamburgers, varied menu, these terms all come to mind about dining at The Poseidon Restaurant. If you sit outside on the patio, you have a great beach scene unfolding before you. Any sunny day in Del Mar brings out surfing and sunning crowds. You may eve see dolphins cavorting in the ocean behind the breaking waves. Lunch... More

This place has been around for quite a while so there are locals mixed in with the tourist crowd. Very open with every seat having a view of the ocean. If you want to just catch a few cocktails, the bar has a view also. Food is good - standard menu, something for everyone.

Recently enjoyed dinner at the Poseidon.. Food and service very good and we had a great table outside 'on the beach' This place gets really busy- reservations are a must and the valet parking area gets full early on. Although- judging by previous reviews - the standard of food and service is not consistent we look forward to eating here... More

The setting for this restaurant is beautiful. It is right on the beach in Del Mar. We were there for a light meal in the afternoon. The place was packed with many people eating and drinking. The food was slightly above average as was the service. I think this restaurant is depending upon the atmosphere and the location. We had... More

Luckily our happy hour bar food was good because our main course was horrible and TINY for $31. My husband and I both craving a nice spicy fresh seafood stew but it tasted like tomato sauce out of a can. Go for the view but that's it. Oh, and we had reservations and were told we would be called at... More

First off, there's no parking. We were there on a week night and even their valet was full. We had a reservation for 8pm. We got sat at 8:30. The beach and location is beautiful. It would be hard not to love Del Mar area beach. Our server was slow, and I'm quite confident she didn't care about anything. It... More

Besides the restaurant, they have an area where you can buy food if you are at the beach. It was great to not have to pack food since we were on vacation.

Good food, good service, and great place for people watching as one looks out on the Pacific Ocean. We sat at the terrace wall for dinner as the beach goers were wrapping up their day at the beach. Located in a crowded area of Del Mar but once in the restaurant you feel secluded and in tune w/ the beach... More

We went to the San Diego (Del Mar) Fair last week and since we were in the neighborhood, went to the Poseidon for dinner. Seated right on the rail that separates the deck from the sand, we had the full-on beach experience that is missing in North County restaurants in places such as Carlsbad and Oceanside. The servers at this... More
