"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 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."

"Poseidon never disappoints. Amazing view, good food and a fun atmosphere. We were lucky last time there to witness a wedding on the beach."

"It's on the beach in Del Mar. The food is actually pretty good and the service is OK too...not that either of those is the attraction here. It's on the beach, it's a good time, you should go."

"Our party greatly enjoyed the food and views at Poseidon! For starters, we had the clam chowder. For lunch, we had fish tacos and salmon with mashed potatoes and spinach. Service was friendly and prompt. Water views were incredible! All in our party enjoyed it immensely! Although the atmosphere was energetic, we could still carry on a conversation."

"Make sure to make reservation because this place is very busy during sunset and little after, especially on the patio. But it is right on the beach and they do have a spot light beaming right into the ocean at night so you can still see the ocean even when it gets dark. Staff is friendly and quick. they do explain menu and answer all the questions but do not bother you much so it is great! Food. If I could I would eat there daily! Their fish menu is amazing. Swordfish was excellent, moist and very nicely cooked. Chilean Seabass even better. I am really running out of words here but the food great! This is a place to go, don't think twice!"

"We were seated in time (and earlier than our reservations) to see the beautiful sunset! The wait staff was great, and the food fantastic. The only issue was other diners rushing out to see the sunset were in the way of those of us sitting outside. But you can not hold that against the place, people believe the world revolves around them."

"One of the very few restaurants right on the beach - you feel as though you are with the folks on the beach - you can hear the happy summer laughter and the waves rolling in and out. A bottle of wine, great food and good friends at Poseidon, what more could one ask for???? The service was very good. Clams in wine sauce - yum! Mussels in coconut yum again! This is a happy feel restaurant - sun on your back and the sea just feet away from you!"
