We made reservations here to celebrate my daughter's end of finals. We ordered a bottle of wine for the table but they refused to give her a glass as she forgot her id. OK until they sent the manager to yell at us for trying to order her wine and explained the alcohol policy to us. We repeatedly said, no... More

This is easily one of the worst restaurants that I have ever been to! Service is lousy and unqualified, seems like the waitresses don't even want to be there. Manager is also useless and firmly unenthusiastic. Food for me was 3/10. Wine was good once the half asleep waitress got the right bottle on the third attempt - location is... More

The restaurant is super beautiful and completely updated to a expensive taste without the price tags of eating here. Food was excellent and tasty for under $20 per person. Make to tell them you want a patio seat closest to the beach and boom you are dining literally next to the beach. Can't beat the view and a must try.... More

Everything about our recent family luncheon at the Poseidon was outstanding. The food, the presentation, and the service were all perfect. The patio dining ambiance also very much added to our enjoyment.

Great experience, service always attentive and professional. Menu has many desirable options and prices are reasonable. Food above above average. A must dining stop when in Del Mar. Evening dining, reservations a must.

Poseidon is a smart casual restaurant offering good food, good ambiance, and right on the beach. The service is wonderful and the restaurant has a good vibe. The Panko Crust fish and chips are really good and so is the calarmari sandwich. Another favorite is the seafood ciioppino.

We were told that this place was "fabulous". Well it was ok. Had the California lamb burger, not much flavor, the bun was bigger than the burger. The coleslaw was decent, slaw is either good or bad this was a broccoli slaw, not to dry or moist. My sister inlaw had the grilled Mahi Mahi tacos, she said that they... More

Food was good. Overpriced for the type of restaurant. Cool but had them turn on heater. Coconut shrimp were burnt but we ate them anyway. Wine was ok. Service was ok. Parked on street.

We arrived and the bar was crowded. That was fine for happy hour. However there was only two servers. The worst part was that management allows small children in the bar. Six kids under age ten were running around. Screaming and yelling as ther parents enjoyed happy hour our party of eight were shocked. The food here is no,longer the... More

Right on beach in Del Mar. Open and airy. Menu balanced between surf and turf. Great wine list. Chelsea a perfect server. Thick clam chowder. Colleague had tasty short ribs. I enjoyed Jamaican rubbed swordfish. Could have been a bit more forceful but still savory. And the piece de resistance? A mother and baby whale playing close to shore as... More
