Good seafood, huge hamburgers, varied menu, these terms all come to mind about dining at The Poseidon Restaurant. If you sit outside on the patio, you have a great beach scene unfolding before you. Any sunny day in Del Mar brings out surfing and sunning crowds. You may eve see dolphins cavorting in the ocean behind the breaking waves. Lunch here was a real treat. Seating without a reservation was easy on a weekday. There is a valet parking charge for parking close in to the front. Prices are moderate and this servings are ample enough to warrant even higher prices. Service was attentive, on target and food came promptly to the table. We'll go back, for sure!

This place has been around for quite a while so there are locals mixed in with the tourist crowd. Very open with every seat having a view of the ocean. If you want to just catch a few cocktails, the bar has a view also. Food is good - standard menu, something for everyone.

Recently enjoyed dinner at the Poseidon.. Food and service very good and we had a great table outside 'on the beach'
This place gets really busy- reservations are a must and the valet parking area gets full early on.
Although- judging by previous reviews - the standard of food and service is not consistent we look forward to eating here again on our next trip as the beachside seating is wonderful.

Try the cocktails and book a table outside

The setting for this restaurant is beautiful. It is right on the beach in Del Mar. We were there for a light meal in the afternoon. The place was packed with many people eating and drinking. The food was slightly above average as was the service. I think this restaurant is depending upon the atmosphere and the location. We had wine, the brie appetizer, Caesar salad, and the sliders. The food was alright but with no extra effort shown in the presentation or in the quality. The server was alright in the beginning but we asked him for several things, he promised he would bring them, but they never showed up. Again, this is one of those places with a gorgeous view and setting that does not have service or food to match.

Luckily our happy hour bar food was good because our main course was horrible and TINY for $31. My husband and I both craving a nice spicy fresh seafood stew but it tasted like tomato sauce out of a can. Go for the view but that's it. Oh, and we had reservations and were told we would be called at 5 (we were in bar at 4) and finally at 5:20 my husband had to go up and ask about table and very nonchalantly the young, inexperienced and obviously uncaring hostess, said "oh ok I can seat you now".
