"Open busy format with most seating and tables on the casual side. Good varied menu with a bit of everything but would have expected/enjoyed a better offering of fresh local seafood. Staff attentive if a bit casual. Would have preferred having courses less hurried, no real time to just relax between. Overall a nice well above average dinner."

"My wife and I loved the location and the ambience but were very disappointed in the quality of the food especially in relation to the cost. The calamari was not fresh and consisted only of strips not some of the other delicious parts. Kona Certified Angus Beef Aged Ribeye, requested medium rare, got medium well! The Kona coffee & rosemary dry rub exacerbated the overcooked ribeye. Overcooking a $42 dollar steak is a crime! I've gotten a better ribeye at Chili's at half the price! Surf and Turf, 8 oz center cut filet, it was good but not great, Maine lobster tail, again good but not great, slightly overcooked certainly not worth $100. Bottom line, I would not recommend Poseidon for dinner the quality of the food is not in line with the cost!"
"Had a wonderful experience at Poseidon. I was on a first date, and sitting in the patio outside area made it very romantic. Wonderful view of the ocean, and then we watched a beautiful sunset. We both enjoyed our meal and wine, then went inside for a night cap in the bar area. We were having such a good time. You can't find many places that offer all of that. Thank you to the Poseidon staff for everything. My date was incredibility impressed, and I'd have to say that was one of my best first dates ever!"

"Came here for a business meeting and decided to bring my wife for her birthday. Enjoyed the ambiance and the food was excellent. Parking is a bit of a problem but you can either valet park or find a spot on the street. The view is really nice and if you go earlier in the day you can follow your meal with a walk on the beach."

"We had a reservation at 12:45 but were told that it would be 15 to 30 minutes for our table. We went to the bar and checked back in 30 minutes. Someone was hassling the hostess about not getting his table (he had just walked in) and so he was seated before we were. To the credit of the hostesses, I think they handled the situation as peacefully as possible; however, the manager should have been at the front desk helping out and kicking out people like that guy. There just didn't seem to be any management around on February 14....a very busy day at the restaurant. All in all, we had a nice lunch. I just think our reservation should have been taken more seriously."

"I took my wife here for Valentines day for the beachside dining. Unfortunately the fog rolled in and we sat indoors. We're younger foodies which is our first priority when we dine, which was 100% there... very tasty! Service was great too with a very tentative, casual, and helpful server. The only distracting element was the actual crowd itself. We're both under 30 and couldn't find another couple in the ballpark of our age! Definitely an older group, most of which didn't order the v-day menu (actually I saw noone order it, as indicated by the included champagne on the tables). I could tell this was no hot date spot, but more of a North County older folks cool hangout spot. All that aside, great food, service, and clean and cool atmosphere."

"The service was great from door to door. Everyone was nice. Food came in a timely manner. All of the side and appatizers were good but the main dish (steak) was ok. It had no flavor and was undercooked for both the Ribeye and Fillet. Might go back again but not sure. i have heard their Sea food is better."
