This place does an outstanding job of being trendy while still retaining some of the old standard menu items, all prepared well. We had fish taco plates, grilled swordfish and Caesar Salad with chicken, plus a variety of local craft beers. Everyone enjoyed their meal and then we devoured a Mud Pie wedge that was shamefully good. Plus, the Brigantine... More

6 of us arrived after a late booking and were warmly welcomed on a cold Saturday evening. Excellent service with full explanation of the various dishes. No starters but straight into mains. All had fish, Lobster, Tuna, Halibut were generous and all served with vegetables and potatoes and all full of flavour and not a morsel left on any plate!... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Brigantine in Del Mar. We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. The fish is fresh and perfectly cooked. The restaurant and busy bar are always busy but the service is excellent and you never feel rushed. Glad they now take reservations so you don't have to stand in line. Highly... More

Every time I've been to the Brigantine, the food has been wonderful and the staff great. The views are just perfect, especially at sunset.

This is an awesome restaurant. Sit outside and have a view of the fairgrounds, enjoy well prepared seafood, drinks.... Don't forget to ask for their cheesy garlic bread - it's not on the menu but they will prepare it for you... YUM!

The Brig Bar is the best remodeled restaurant in San Diego County in the past 5 years. The looked in the mirror and decided when they grew up they were going to be a bar with fine dining not a dining room with a bar. The Bar Kitchen is all you need for a great night out with friends, family... More

Extraordinarily noisy. Food and service average. Would not go out of my way visit. Bar was empty, but we were crammed in dining room.

The restaurant sits atop of a hill overlooking the ocean on one side and Del Mar Race Track on the other. The food was great On the recommendation of our waitress, I had the seafood plate, which ample and tasty. My wife had a small seafood salad which could have fed two. Prices were reasonable considering the location. Taco Tuesday... More
