“Drinks and Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Love sitting in the bar area and watch the ocean waves and the people on the beach! Need to have your sunglasses though!
Good drinks specials and wonderful appetizers!

“Beautiful location with excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had reservations for dinner after spending the afternoon at the Del Mar Racetrack. We arrived early, but were promptly led to our table. Beautiful weather so we were seated outside at the ocean's edge! We were pleased to find Schramsberg Sparkling (California) on the menu which went well with each dish ordered. Aunt and Uncle Ordered the Seafood platter - all grilled/blackened to perfection - and presented with thought and even a little whimsy. Ceviche was perfect as was the truffle mac n cheese. A diner with allergies was able to make a lovely meal of a salad and added salmon. Creme brulee was creamy and perfectly cooked; and gelato was a sweet ending. With the beautiful sunset it was a perfect evening. Sometimes food at beach front areas is very disappointing. Not so at the Poseidon! We cannot wait to return!

“Fabulous setting, great lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Making our way from SanDeigo to LA we stopped by the Poseidonn for lunch. Nice choice, easy valet parking, great setting on the patio with a gorgeous beach view. Wife had crab cakes and I had fish sandwich with sweet potato fries, both were very good.

“Good food with a beach view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The Poseidon sits right on the beach in Del Mar. It's easy to get to, has valet parking, and also has metered parking in the adjacent lot (and more across the street).

The food was very good and the service was just slightly above average. I had dinner with a couple. We didn't take advantage of their 1/2 price wine special that night (I think it's a regular Wednesday night feature) but I thought that was a great offer. I was especially impressed that they had two very large parties on the patio (one of 19 and another of 60) and yet the service in the restaurant didn't falter. It was a bit disappointing that no one else could get a table on the patio however, because the weather was wonderful that night.

Anyway, I had scallops and they were cooked to perfection and served with a mashed potato accompaniment. The presentation was beautiful, as was the sea bass ordered by one of my companions. Our third party member ordered a number of cold hors d'oeuvres for his dinner and they served everything together as they should have.

The restaurant was very full that night so it was a bit noisy, but I would definitely go back.
