"I ate here with my family on Saturday and we made the perfect reservation time at 6:45pm and was able to catch an amazing sunset! We requested to sit outside on their patio and right there in front of you is the ocean! You can dress casual or dress up-either is fine. I ordered a Mango margarita, Pistachio Crusted Loch-Duart Scottish Salmon, and for dessert, a Kona Coffee gelato. All very tasty! The service was average-our server kept telling us to hold on since she always happened to be in the middle of something. Other than that, the food and the view was perfect! Will definitely come back to try more dishes!"

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

"A vacation find! Loved our table right next to the beach. The service was friendly and prompt and the food was a excellent! Most of all the view of the surf and the antics on the beach were very entertaining! Can't wait to return!"

"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!"

"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!"

"You are closer to the beach/surf than any place in San Diego but, and it's a big but, you will pay for it. If you get a full meal (drinks, appetizer or salad, entree) you will pay top dollar. The food is OK but at $35-$47 for most entrees, it should be better. We will just go for drinks and appetizers next time because like I said, you can't beat the view!"
