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.

All the beautiful people, but probably a little older now ;-) DIrectly on the beach, amazing food, fancy cocktails, valet parking. It's Del Mar in a single destination. My favorite :-)

This is the type of place that, while it is popular with tourists, is a favorite with locals too. We went with friends when visiting San Diego who love the restaurant for its food and atmosphere. Its location on the beach provides vistas up and down the beach from the outdoor dining area. Inside it has a nice bar and... More

Food was served cold, waitress was grumpy, and to top it off, one of the people in our party noticed what looked like metal shavings in their dessert. When he confronted the waitress about it she said it was because the chef had heated it in the foil container in the microwave, and some of the foil had stuck to... More

Ate here, wanted a great view of the ocean, but was worried about the cool weather. This place has heater lamps & lights on the beach so you can see the beach at night. The food was great. Try the coconut shrimp appetizer & the coffee rubbed ribeye- yum! Service was pretty good too.

The view is phenomenal and the lamb burger was unique and perfectly prepared. I would visit again whenever we make it back to Del Mar.
