The food here was quite good--better than we expected when we arrived, given the high noise level near the bar and the rather casual atmosphere. Our server was very attentive and helpful. Dessert was great also. The only problem was with the valet, who managed to drop and lose one of the two keys to our rental car, which we... More

Brig is consistently good food. Reasonably priced and a great hang out. Sunday has bottomless mimosas during the brunch timeframe with an entree order. Needless to say we typically go on Sunday. If you are looking for a great meal in Del Mar and don't want to spend an arm and leg for it, Brig is a great option and... More

The Del Mar Brigantine has a fantastic Happy Hour with a great selection of appetizers and beverages that are affordably priced. There is a nice indoor bar area, but what my wife and I like best is sitting along their outdoor deck with a nice view of the Del Mar Racetrack and the Pacific Ocean. The only drawback to some...

Great tacos - and Gluten Free as they did a lettuce wrap for me. So tasty that it was still worth it. They did miss one taco and not wrap in lettuce and they sauces were not GF and ended up under the lettuce so I couldn't eat that one. But other than that was great.

We went here for lunch. Great views of Del Mar Race Track and ocean. Food and service were great. Not as crowded as other Del Mar restaurants. Price was right.

This place was great. Can't think of a better place for a business meeting of drinks of lunch. The staff was great, food incredible and the atmosphere perfect. Outdoor and indoor seating available. Can't wait to bring the wife!

Our group of 4 had high expectations after reading the reviews, but we were pretty disappointed with the food we received (vs the price it cost). The ambiance, location and service were great (though nothing extraordinary) but the food was mostly just average (oysters, swordfish, halibut, and grouper all tasted pretty bland...though the scallops were nice). However, for a $160... More

Went here for dinner. Beautiful open views of the Del Mar Raceway and surrounding areas. Fish entrees were enjoyed by all. Selection of drinks was great including a whole list of different Mules.... Great choice. Choose a table closer to the bar rather than in the back area for best views.
