Right on the Beach

We came on a Sunday night and though it was busy we were seated right away. We got a window view and could still see the sunset. The wait to sit out on the patio was over an hour and it was too cold so we decided to sit inside. It was very romantic and yet not too fancy or... read more

We went for dinner on a Sunday night. I was impressed by the view and looked forward to the the experience! The service was slow despite the fact that we were only 1 of 5 couples in the place! The appetizer came out cold, and the salmon was dry and lukewarm. They are lucky for the location and view. Overpriced... More

I had decided to escape from a horrble Maine winter by visiting friends in SD. Our first stop for lunch hour The Poseidon on beautiful Del Mar beach. We were seated immediately at a great table outside overlooking the ocean. Drinks were ordered and deliver shortly. Food was ordered and took some time. Then it went downhill...we ordered tea and...

I came here on a Monday night and it was quite busy. I ordered the Spanish Garlic Shrimp as an appetizer and was dissapointed. For $15 I got 5 pieces of shrimp.. I think they can do better than that. For my entree I ordered the surf and turf. Nothing Wowed me. Lobster tail was average and the steak was... More

We met some out-of-town friends here for dinner. The highlight of this restaurant is clearly the views, as the patio area extends over the beach right towards the crashing waves. The meal & service was a little hit and miss. Entrees were generally good but dessert was disappointing. Also some of their propane heaters were out of propane, despite being... More

This restaurant was right next door to our accommodations (the Motel on the Beach), so we ambled into it our first morning in Del Mar. A pretty good Sunday breakfast. The Coconut French Toast was delicious. The Bacon and Egg sandwich on croissant was huge and tasty. Two kids pancakes rounded out our order. The restaurant was busy, and as... More

This is a great spot right on the beach. We asked for a table outside only to arrive in the rain....unusual on a California evening. We were disappointed that they had the plastic windows rolled down but understood. The menu was lovely as was the service. We had a terrific meal and enjoyed it all. This place is a sure... More

While visiting from out of town, a friend took my husband and I here for lunch. It had a nice atmosphere but was not to the standard we had expected. The waitress was pleasant but service was slow. The clam chowder was excellent but the rest of our food was average. Maybe we just hit it on an off day.... More

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.
