we spun the wheel and came up with this restaurant as the seafood place during a recent holiday. Did we ever make the right choice, my wife and I shared the mixed grill, but had the chef substitute Chilean sea bass for salmon. absolutely amazing dinner and great service. the view of the beach lit up completed the night.

Great food and atmosphere! Sunset creates such a fantastic Kodak moment as shown by people and their cell phones!

Had drinks at the bar here tonight. Plenty of (valet) parking but some street spots as well. Could not be more ON the beach. Staff was decent. Drinks were not very expensive. Great views of the beach.

Finishing our trip to the Delmar area we stopped at this restaurant for lunch before heading to San Diego. We sat outside in the open air enjoying the waves crashing and the sound of people having fun. Place was very packed and service was good but a little slow. We did not mind because the view and warmth of not... More

Second time there, and still NOT disappointed! Took my Mom there to celebrate her 94th Birthday. Chef prepared the Chilean Sea Bass as a favor early since we were there for lunch. My Mom had never had it before and devoured it! We ate on the patio and enjoyed the seagulls and the Ocean for our view. bottom line, their... More

This resto has a great atmosphere especially on a sunny day or during their daily happy hour specials. Food is very good, customer service is great and the location is second to none with a patio on the beach and lots of windows to look out on the water.

If you enjoy sitting on an outside patio, sipping mimosas, with views of the beautiful waves crashing along the shore.... this is an outstanding place to meet old friends, new friends, or escape the everyday. To top is off, their food is great! I have been to Poseidon several times and have never been disappointed with my choices. Parking is... More

My sons/daughter-in-law took me here for my 60th Birthday. LOVE this restaurant, the views are amazing. Lights on the ocean and heaters on the deck make it a perfect place to enjoy your meal. All our meals were delicious. I had the swordfish, which was served on mascarpone mashed potatoes! Unbelievable! The carpaccio appetizer is well worth it, too, very... More

Two menu choices stand out for me. One is the appetizer of Pistachio Crusted Brie which is a flash fried, brioche crostini, chilled grapes and jalapeno jelly. Delicious. I now know why the dessert of Crème Brulee is so popular when prepared well. It was superb. The weather was cool that evening and the heat lamps were appreciated.

Right on the beach with a view (and the sound) of the waves. Had a great dinner with a group of 9. Waitress was really excellent - attentive and a great conversationalist. Everyone loved their meals, and they had a half-price wine bottle special going, which added to the enjoyment.
