In San Diego for college move-in w/e. Youngest daughter - sad mom. Having dinner right before sunset at Poseidon helped to ease my pain. We sat outside (they were busy but the accommodating hostess, knowing our daughter had a mandatory floor meeting) gave us a seat on a busy Friday night beachfront and it was paradise. The view - can't... More

We were driving up the highway. We stopped here because it was highly rated. It seems like a place where a lot of regulars hang out and drink. I suppose if I was single it would be a great spot. We had no reservation and there was a special place to sit at the bar. We sat there for 15... More

Not my first time... Poseidon is well known to the locals of Del Mar, but this is a definite WOW for your 'bucket list', if you are coming to San Diego. Inside , the wall of glass windows faces the ocean... This wall opens up so that inside, you do get the breezes and marvelous views as well, from any... More

The most expensive item on the menu is a $50 steak with a coffee rub. Well, the vegetarian in me went for the Thai veggie dish instead. Everyone else at the table ordered seafood. No one raved about the dinners. They were OK, nothing out of the ordinary. The high prices reflect the neighborhood and the beach view. There are... More

9 of us went for dinner. We had to change our reservation and it was no problem. We sat outside and had an amazing view. The best calamari I have ever had. The tuna salad was awesome. Everyone enjoyed their meal and with 9 people that is impressive.

There are probably only a few restaurants in the world with a location as good as this for dining out of doors on a summer night. On the Poseidon terrace, you are sitting out on the sand (fortunately not in the sand) with waves breaking just beyond you, and you view the ocean and the beach scene with volleyball players,...

This is a great restaurant because they offer a great menu, great service and a great view of the Pacific Ocean. It's not cheap but then find me something in Del Mar that is! The food menu is diverse, portions are not small and presentation suits. Cocktail menu is worth exploring as is the wine list. Definitely worth a visit.

We've been to the Poseidon Restaurant, Del Mar many times. The food is very good, but make no mistake this is an upscale place with a view to match. The have a very good selection of seafood and about any other item you might want. But the view...

Went with friends who booked the table the night before, very busy so this was wise... Got a table outside and watched the sun go down a very picturesque view. Seafood was good but a little expensive, valet parking was good at only 5$ (excluding tip).

There aren't too many places where you can eat al fresco, right on the beach, breathing fresh salt air. I've returned many times over the past 30 years (cousins live in Del Mar). It's my idea of heaven. Have enjoyed many light meals, and refreshing adult beverage. It's always been overpriced. Quesadillas and burgers were $8 or $10 the last... More
