Went with friends for a night out without the kids while on vacation. We had reservations and were seated at the prime spot...at the end of the patio next to the beach. Friends had eaten there many times over the past 15 years and have only received this spot on 2 other occasions. As the sun was setting nicely over... More

We love the Poseidon, especially for lunch. We can sit on the beach with all our gear, throw on some clothes and sit on their patio for a great meal. The interior is also gorgeous and you can have an ocean view almost every seat. Fish tacos are good as are most salads. Very beautiful and love the atmosphere. Nice... More

Great spot if you can get a table on the patio facing the beach. You might have to wait. Valet parking and parking across the street make this spot accessible even when town is busy. Fish and chips and fish tacos are the ticket at lunch, though not the widest of choices on the menu. More of a venue restaurant... More

Food is amazing, but you just can't beat the views. You're right on the beach watching the waves roll in and enjoying a wonderful meal, with a fabulous wait staff. It's all heavenly.

My rating for this restaurant is based more on its location than for the food. We found it magical to sit on its outside patio at sunset, looking at the beach, pounding surf and ever-changing colors in the sky. Nightfall emphasized the soothing sound of waves lapping on the shore. Though we dined here on a comfortably cool California night,... More

This contemporary oceanside restaurant in beautiful Del Mar is very reasonably priced especially since everyone has a view of the ocean and beach. Dining here is like having a meal right on the beach. The food is good but not exceptional. The chicken fajitas and mahi stand out. The view is the attraction and considering their expensive neighbors, well worth... More

The view is unbelievably Ahhmazing! The food was average & waiter was average. I had to ask for more water twice and the check was delivered BEFORE we finished eating our late snack.

This was our third or fourth time at Poseidon. We started coming here a couple of years ago and have never been disappointed. Great food, service, and casual environment. Get a table outside overlooking the beach. Fantastic views. Get here earlier as it always seems to get crowded as the night goes on.

I went there in the afternoon for a drink. We were not received friendly. We were not allowed to sit on the patio although almost nobody was sitting there. We were guided to the bar. They had good Belgium beers. The bar tender was not friendly either.

Incredible sunset view! Seared Ahi Tuna was delicious and Chilean Bass was exceptional. Locals were welcoming and entertaining.
