"Although we have been a regular visitor to Solana. Beach , we had never known about Poseidon. I had seen it on a walk and decided to try it out. Food was great, servers were friendly and efficient, and the surf side location and view was outstanding. This will be a regular spot for us!."

"Even though we parked ourselves in the lot (meters), we were still greeted by the young man at the Valet desk as we approached the restaurant. The hostesses were just as cordial. We were a bit daunted by the crowded bar — we were expecting another couple, who hadn't arrived — but were still impressed by the flow and energy of that area. We were even more impressed, however, that the hostess offered to seat us before our friends arrived. Most places wait for the whole party before you can be seated, but Poseidon seems to understand that sometimes, when arriving at a crowded restaurant, all you want to do is be seated and settled in, whether your whole party is there or not. The food and service were fantastic as well. Thank you so much!!"

"is the best place to eat well prepared food and watch a sunset. The air is always wonderful and so is the staff. I usually share a dinner with my guy and a salad in order to cut down on calories late in the day, but the portions are small here, so we came home hungry. We love being able to walk from our home to the restaurant- they have a great Happy Hour too."

"As the title says, the Poseidon consistently delivers excellence. Don't be fooled by the understated street side appearance, the bar is warm, energetic and inviting; way nicer than next door. The patio dining is my local favorite. Overall service is timely and professional; food is always superb. Our meals last night were 10's in anyone's book. Check it out, cozy up in the bar and order off that menu to get a taste; you'll be back. Recommend reservations for the Patio (which is heated)"

"We love to go to Poseidon when we want to sit by the beach and have some great lobster and drinks. We've also eaten their during restaurant week and the choices are great. My only pet peeve is the vanilla infusion into things like mashed potatoes. I just like my vanilla flavoring in sweet items instead of savory"

"Beautiful location on the beach in Del Mar. Spectacular ocean views, excellent selection of seafood and steaks and fine sevice. Bar scene is very active on warm sunny beach days. Parking is a challenge, valet parking available."

"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."
