A lovely restaurant right on the beach. The staff was cordial and professional. The food was excellent and the portions, especially the steaks, were enormous. We had a lovely meal with the sound of the surf.

We've tried several seafood restaurants in the Del Mar area, but Poseidon was outstanding! Nice drinks at the bar, excellent beach view of the ocean, and they even provided a wonderful sunset when we dined! We were intrigued by the Seafood Platter - the most...expensive item on the menu, but sized for two. It sounded good, and included several items we wanted to try, so we took a chance in spite of the cost - we did not regret it! Every item on the platter was seasoned and cooked exquisitely! Each time I tried a different item, I expected it not to be better than the previous delicious bite, but not true - everything was amazing. Portions were reasonable for the two of us. The staff was friendly and helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening!More

This restaurant is nicely located right on the beach, so the ambience is great. The food was nice, but nothing really special and nothing stood out.

Our first night in Solana and we were fortunate that we found this restaurant. Our waiter Dave was wonderful. We indulged and immersed ourselves to a wonderful seafood dining experience. The calamari was tender and delicious. So was the main dish of sea bass and...yellow fin tuna. The cocktails were superb as was the Creme brûlée dessert. The view of the sunset just put the icing on this wonderful dining experience. We also were visited by management to assure us of a great experience. Talking with Dave our waiter was like talking to an old friend. We highly recommend this restaurant. It also has valley parking for $7. Don’t park in public parking across the street, it was $20 to park. Enjoy!More

We visited family in the San Diego area and this is where they wanted to go for lunch. We made use of the parking valet ($7 per car) and walked into the restaurant. We arrived 9 minutes late for our lunch reservation, but were promptly...seated with no issues. The breakfast / brunch / lunch menus were available for our Saturday visit. We chose a variety of Benedicts, salads, and sandwiches. Everyone was pleased with their food. Drinks also were appreciated. Our server was attentive and efficient. Overall, a nice meal with family with a beautiful beach view. My only complaint was the price. I understand being on the beach with a great atmosphere, but the cost of the meals limit the number of visits.More

One will find that this restaurant and “Jakes” are right by each other. I say that because when choosing between both you can’t go wrong but I was a little disappointed in Poseidon. The service was good but the food, outside of the clam chowder,...was just meh. We each had a Manhattan and pretty sure it wasn’t a Manhattan but made with some other weird combo of booze. I’d give Poseidon another shot, but I’m picking Jake’s first, still, for now.More

This rating is for the spectacular ocean view and the outstanding service. I would have given 5 stars, but the food was just mediocre. The prices are rather high, but you are paying for the view.

We were a party of three having lunch at this restaurant on a cool but sunny day in January. Everything was perfect. The setting couldn't be better; right on the beach with a nice wind barrier next to the tables. There was lots of outdoor...seating. The food was wonderful. each of our seafood salads was delicious, large, and fresh. The service was also excellent. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but for a special meal it is worth it.More

We have been here twice (so far). Both times were excellent. The food, the atmosphere, the servers - all excellent. We had Jessica C for our lunch server and she had perfect timing and was very pleasant. For dinner, we had Claudia. She was friendly...and funny and made us smile a lot. You need to try the oysters.More

A friend and I went for lunch. We were told by the hostess that brunch was being served on this date, and we agreed to that. we were seated promptly. We ordered two different things on the menu the mushroom omelette and the calamari steak...sandwich. Both were delicious. Our server had a wonderful smile and was very pleasant. The only improvement would have been if they had given each of us half of the entrées as we told our server that we would be sharing. Overall a very nice relaxing experience.More

You don't see an restaurant with the view this one has. Right in front of the ocean in Del Mar, San Diego. The food is exellent and the service is too. The portions have a very good size and very good taste. It's a little...pricy though. There is a parking lot but I hate the cost of the Valet Parking ($7.00). Tha bar area is very good and always with a good environment.More

Made last minute reservation for 4:45 in hopes of being at the table for 6:15 sunset. They did not rush us and it was awesome. Great casual beach vibe. Sea bass is very good as was calamari. The tables are right on the beach with...just a short wall separating you from beach goers. Might be my favorite spot in Del Mar.More
