Went with friends for a mini celebration dinner and we were not disappointed. We decided to stay in but the view from the tables inside is as good as from the deck. Drinks were respectable, salads very good, and the entrees were terrific. Swordfish, Scottish Salmon were great for my friend and my Wasabi encrusted Tuna was perfect. Just the... More

When you think of a restaurant on the beach with patio seating - well this is the place. Enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and happy hour here. The staff was friendly and quick. Love everything about it.

My mom and I took my aunt here to celebrate her birthday, and there was nothing disappointing about it! The server was excellent, the table with a sunset view was perfect, and the clam chowder was the best I had eve recalled having. My mom and my aunt had steaks that melted in your mouth, and I had a seafood... More

Recently stopped for lunch with a friend while visiting the Del Mar area. Upon entering there was no host/hostess in sight and it took a few minutes for one to arrive. The outside deck was full so we opted for a booth in the dining room where we still had a great view of the ocean. We began with the... More

Went there with a large group. Fantastic location but it seems to be more of a bar than a restaurant. We saw our table, the only on for ten, but when we checked in the hostess made us wait while she "got our table ready". It was the only vacant table there. She then spent ten minutes cleaning menus with... More

We went to Poseidon for an event last night. The service was slow,slow, slow. Every time someone wanted wine, they had to ask for it. The initial appetizer sampler plates which included fried calamari were cold. It was depressing actually. It all looked good but every single thing on the plate was cold. We were packed into an area way... More

My husband and I were visiting from Florida and so had read about Poseidon and so decided to book a table. We had a perfect setting on a beautiful night outside on the terrace. Our meal was fabulous and the service warm and attentive. We couldn't have been more pleased! We ordered the lamb meatballs and heirloom tomato and beet... More

Loved the outside table with the beautiful ocean view. Our waitress Yadira was the greatess. She kept the drinks and food coming, even through we were having a fun silly afternoon. The food was good for the price. Fish and Chips was great and so was the 13.50 chicken sandwich. We enjoyed this beautiful lunch with a California view.

My husband and I have enjoyed the food at the Poseidon Restaurant for many years. We love the atmosphere and the "on-the-ocean" view is wonderful. The servers are usually very helpful and the food arrives in a timely manner. However, over the past five years we have found the personnel at the front desk are disorganized, indifferent and flippant toward... More
