“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We had a lunch at Poseidon which was very good. The draw for me was the wonderful setting on the beach with both inside and outside seating. It was just delightful.

“Best Beach Front restaurant and bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We have been coming to the Del Mar beach on vacation for decades and eating at the Poseidon.This year it has truly elevated its food, service and wind list. Extremely popular now, so if you want an outdoor table under umbrellas get there early, for either lunch or dinner. If all of those are taken, go outside where the indoor bar serves 4 seats with the same view. Great place. Relaxed vibe. Great view of surfers.

“Panoramic Ocean front dining in a casual venue, the first place I take out-of-town vistors!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Ocean view dining in a more casual atmosphere, literally the patio is "on the beach dining". Believe it or not it can be great to take kids, bring your sand pail and they can make sand castles while you are taking in the beautiful ocean view sipping their signature martinis. It has quite the fun happy hour bar, with live music on certain nights. Great salad selections and fresh seafood, and my husband loves the pogo burger. Great in the off season too when the track and fair crowd is gone.

“Busy but best for sundowners and bar snacks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Such an amazing location, right on the beach and perfect to watch the sun go down. Food is merely OK and the service is friendly but less than professional, too much surfing I think.

Be warned that there is a service area on route to the toilet that is pretty open, DO NOT ENTER, you will get a bollocking!

“Can't get any closer to the water without getting sandy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The Poseidon Restaurant is one of our favorites. There is nothing quite like enjoying a delicious meal out of doors, listening to the waves, and watching the sun set. We had a large family celebration at the Poseidon in July and were treated to the perfect table on the terrace. The meal did not disappoint and we found that we really slowed down and stretched our dining until we'd enjoyed an assortment of fine desserts and a second cup of coffee. We ordered and shared pretty much every item on the menu from the salads to the lamb to the fresh seafood. Everything was delicious. One of the best restaurants for reminding us how lucky we are to live in San Diego.
