"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!"

"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."

"We had forgotten house delightful Poseidon is. Our table was inside, but right where the doors had opened, so we were protected yet still right at the beautiful ocean. Particularly important is their early evening hour, since dinner and the theater can be a puzzlement on time. Both our meals were excellent. Outstanding!"

"Food preparation and presentation is as usual, excellent. Table service is normally outstanding except this time we got a server who was nothing more than an order taker. Nothing destroys a dining experience more than when get an order taker whom you see only when you arrive, takes your order and then you don't see again until they present you with a bill. That kind of service you can obtain from a food truck. Food quality and previous experience says that I would still give this restaurant at least 3 stars."

"We enjoyed a combination birthday/Mother's Day dinner there recently and it was superb! Obviously the view is to die for as we were on the beach for a great sun-set. Service was excellent, wine well priced (for a restaurant) and the service was wonderful. Great spot to bring "out-of-towners" to show off one of San Diego's many charms."
