We had dinner at Poseidon on Friday night. We had a table inside at the windows. Poseidon has a large outside patio I could see being very enjoyable for lunch on a sunny day; it was too cool for us in the evening. We each had a cup of soup, one was chowder and the other the days special soup.... More

We have visited Poseidon several times. The wait staff is excellent and you certainly can't beat the view of the sunset. They even gave us blankets as it was rather chilly outside on our last visit. The food was just so-so. For the prices, I really expected it to be more memorable. We will definitely go back here, but it... More

Overlooking the Ocean, outside tables have overhead heaters, necessary in November! Lots of fish meals so beware if you are not keen on fish!

We had a large business meal here - catering for over 30 people, sitting outside watching a magnificent sunset over the beach. The food was great, the wines extremely good and the service spot on. There was a TV showing baseball (final game of the world series) visible for those that needed to keep in touch. I loved this place,... More

Dined in the bar on a Friday night since the wait line was long. The food was decent and the service great, but be prepared for menu sticker shock!

Poseidon has been a flagship restaurant in Del Mar for quite some time. They have undergone a few chef changes but the food has never been to die for. Consistent and good, absolutely, knock your socks off cuisine, not so much. With that said, what may be lacking in the kitchen is certainly made up for in the location. Right... More

Arrived at restaurant on a busy Sunday at brunch time. Staff was great and had us in and out of the bar area at an outside table in less time than estimated. Lovely location right on beach - good service and wonderful meal!
