"I've reserved a table next to the seawall on the patio about 10 times now over the past 7 or 8 months.
The view up and down the beach and right out into the waves is really exciting and beautiful!
Such an ideal location to take any out-of-town guests!
Talk about ambiance!!

"I booked this restaurant not knowing the restaurant, or the area of Del Mar, but simply going with the recommendations on Trip Advisor. My mom and I took my aunt to celebrate her 70th, and it was a perfect celebration! Great seafood linguine, and amazing steaks, and the sunset was perfect, too! Also, our server was excellent! Reserving on OpenTable was so cool- really appreciated that service!"

"We specified a beachfront table, and one was waiting for us when we arrived. Our waitress was spot on, but the bus service left something to be desired. Not enough set ups, even when the food arrived. Nice varied menu and everyone enjoyed their food. Lobster/crab cake appetizer ore than enough for a full lunch. The view is spectacular and perfect for out of town guests. We would return."

"We saw an ad on a local map and so decided to book a table. We were beyond pleased with our experience! Delicious food, great service and unparalleled view/ambience outdoors for sunset. You've got to make Poseidon a stop if you're visiting the North San Diego area. Very romantic and the sea bass was outstanding."

"I ate here with my family on Saturday and we made the perfect reservation time at 6:45pm and was able to catch an amazing sunset! We requested to sit outside on their patio and right there in front of you is the ocean! You can dress casual or dress up-either is fine. I ordered a Mango margarita, Pistachio Crusted Loch-Duart Scottish Salmon, and for dessert, a Kona Coffee gelato. All very tasty! The service was average-our server kept telling us to hold on since she always happened to be in the middle of something. Other than that, the food and the view was perfect! Will definitely come back to try more dishes!"

"We have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. Parking was a bit of a hassle on the weekend. View is fantastic and were just in time for the sunset."

"Sitting right on the beach the view is fantastic. Best time to go is for lunch, or happy hour. The expensive dinner items are not that well prepared.
We had lukewarm, runny mash potatoes, and soggy asparagus with our filets. The bread rolls are some kind of awful pretzel rolls?? We prefer the standard crusty sourdough rolls served at most nice seafood restaurants. The restaurant needs a remodel, pics on line make it look better than what it is. It's dirty and run down looking inside. Screams toursist trap.

"Eating lunch on the patio of the Poseidon is right on the sand. Food is delicious, well prepared, nicely presented. The wait staff are attentive, but the parking can be a nightmare."
