"Food was nearly cold, grilled vegetable sandwich was overdone (too many vegies spoiled the taste) and tasted (and felt) very fatty from the oil used to grill the bread, waited for nearly 40 minutes until food arrived, requested additional bread came after we got the entrees (about 45 min. later!), waitress appeared to be not very enthusiastic
we still believe that latest price increases were outrageous...ahi tuna salad from $ 16 to $ 26 for lunch, really? That's $ 33 with tax and tip. It's just a salad with a little bit of fish! ...and the list goes on. Seems the owner is desparate to squeeze the last money out of his loyal customer base. Glad we have a wide choice of restaurants in North County, Poseidon no longer is among our favorites.

"I was bummed to hear that Poseidon would not be honoring the Passport card soon. So- 333 Pacific in Oceanside will be getting my busy soon. So long Poseidon- it's all about value!"

"Visited Poseidon for lunch the day after New Year's. It was a beautiful day in Del Mar. Perfect day to dine at Poseidon. We were seated on the patio along the wall bordering the beach. Wonderful view!
Our server (Jay) was absolutely wonderful. He was very efficient, attentive without being overbearing and offered excellent recommendations. The food, from appetizers to dessert and coffee, was exceptional. All in all, a beautiful day in Del Mar and great lunch at Poseidon! Highly recommended."

"Incredibly impressed. Ordered the bread and spread appetizer, cheese tortellini with shrimp, and pork chop entree. All cooked perfectly with lots of flavor. Amazing view and impeccable service."
