"Food either over done or cold & very poor service. For the price there is no excuse. I'm trying to be fair because it is the Holiday Season but still management should have been prepared for the crowd. Waiters were overwhelmed, the kitchen did not get it right, and the bar was understaffed. I've been to Poseidon several times but this time would have turned off customers completely.
Step up Poseidon, get a clue.

"The view here is outstanding and would be fantastic to check out the sunset for happy hour or have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset. The food on the other hand, is what you might expect at a hotel convention. We began with the crab & lobster cakes - which were VERY cakey. The Spanish Garlic Shrimp had a decent tomato sauce was lackluster. The ceviche was pretty good with the typical fish, shrimp and tortilla chips. For our main courses, we had: the sea bass which was on the right track, with a simple dusting of Japanese Nori Furikake seasoning on a bed of mashed potatoes, edamame & tomatoes and a lemon grass beurre blanc. Unfortunately, the lemongrass didn't seem present. It had great potential but in the end was very salty. We also ordered the special for the evening: flat iron steak topped with crab. The steak lacked seasoning and there was topped with about a teaspoon of crab. The Wasabi Sesame Crusted Yellow Fin Tuna was decent, but not memorable. It really felt like an old-school hotel restaurant - nothing fancy. Service was decent. Even though the food doesn't stand up to the expectations, it might be worth a trip back to try brunch or for a simple appetizer and glass of wine (we had several mixed drinks but returned an Old Fashioned which seemed more like a Shirley temple) Its really a shame, I hope Poseidon updates the atmosphere and the food - its such a terrific location."

"This place was a last minute decision and what a good one it was. We ordered free range chicken, a chipotle chicken pasta dish which was amazing just enough heat and flavor, scallops which was delish and salmon which was cooked perfect. The atmosphere is so nice you can sit outside and watch the waves even at night they put a spot light on the ocean which was so nice seeing that and the fill moon shining on it. The server whose name I didn't get was just fanstatic blonde nice boy. Dessert was so delicious is was an opera cake with chocolate ganache and raspberry. All in all I would recommend this place it was delightful"
