Lots of improvements here. Better menu, both food and drinks. Can be more interesting than their next door neighbor, Jake's. Good for tourists, looking for the ocean view -- not a lot of locals, and NEVER during the summer!!!

This is about the most perfect place in Del Mar for sunset appetizers and cocktails. Plan ahead with reservations for dinner and it will make a for a San Diego perfect evening.

Or should that be apologies to Bruce Springsteen.... OK, if you've read this far, you're hooked.

My Poseidon Adventure (can you tell my age yet?) consisted of showing up (with reservation) and getting a great table overlooking the ocean - complete with a gorgeous sunset. What else could I see? When I first got there - not much - just sun. Did I say this place is right on the ocean and faces west? Putting that aside; it was a gorgeous view (30 minutes earlier) and as the sun was setting and beyond.

I suppose you want to know about the food...
- Very well prepared. Specialty is seafood. One of our party got steak and it worked fine.
- Service was excellent; waitstaff was knowledgeable
- Presentation is fancy; yet a mix of ingredients and sauces designed to complement each other well
- Had to get a dessert; more sizable than I expected.... had to go work it off the next morning!

All in all - a marvelous taste experience, great atmosphere (will be a bit noisy - not for romance), great view (bring sunglasses) and excellent service.

Went to Poseidon for a business dinner while in Del Mar. Had a party of 6 and sat out on the porch. At 6:00 the sun was blinding - but by 7:00 it was worth enduring because the sunset was awesome (although I guess Poseidon's didn't really have an influence on that). The food was very good. 3 of us had the Mahi Mahi. One of us had the bone-in ribeye and he said he felt like Fred Flintstone because it was so big. The restuarant was very crowded and the volume seemed to go up as the time got later.

We drove up from San Diego for lunch and fell in love with what a clean, upscale, developed town Del Mar is. Having Googled for scenic views for dining near San Diego, we didn't quite know what to expect from The Poseidon, but it was a pleaser. We enjoyed seafood and the sea. Would certainly return often if in the area!
