"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!"

"As long time residents, we remember burgers on the wood patio, dressed in whatever was comfy from the beach. Today's Poseidon is just superb. Can't ask for a better view or better service. The menu offers many choices and the Chilean Seabass was amazing! Excellent presentation, delicious from every different flavor. One of the finest, by all means!"

"Everything was fabulous, from the food to the view to the ambiance. The service was a little slow but it was still well worth the wait. Will definitely go again!!"

"It's been a while since we've been to Poseidon and the restaurant has changed for the better. The menu is more sophisticated and the food was excellent. The fish was fresh and the portions were large. We sat on the patio and had an incredible view of the ocean as sunset approached. The service was impeccable and the food came out quickly. I wouldn't call it relaxing but the noise level was much lower than I expectedf given how crowded the restaurant was."

"Our dining experience was outstanding. We were recommended by a friend and couldn't of been more pleased. Was greeted at the door by friendly smiling faces. Wait staff was great! Our waitress Nilmin (don't know if that is the proper spelling) was outstanding. Very attentive! Ambiance was perfect. Food came out in a timely matter! We will definelty come back the next time we come to visit California."
