Seasalt - Del Mar Ratings and Reviews
The only downside was I made a reservation for 3 @ 7:15 pm and when we got there he said Open Table had overbooked. We waited about a half hour which wasn’t bad but I was slightly annoyed. I believe it was their system. I’ve never had a problem with OpenTable.
We saw this on the Resturaunt week website. But they did not honor it. I was disappointed. Since I had 3 small kids and expecting another family, I decided to stay. The menu items on line such as Mac n cheese were not on the menu. another disappointment as my kids expected it. it was my moms bday and she did get a special dessert.
Its unfortunate that I have to write this review. We enjoy the food, but there is one server that seems to just dislike us, and she makes it very apparent. We were there a few months ago and she was extremely rude to us. When I mentioned it to her, I guess she realized it and apologized and comped our meal due to the horrible customer experience. I won't even go into some of the nasty and sarcastic comments she made. I chalked it up to everyone has a bad day. We still left a $20 tip, thinking it was an isolated incident.
Last night we went back, and she wasn't as rude to our face with comments, but still not welcoming. We instantly knew it was not going to be an enjoyable experience, but we always try to take the high road and give people second chances. We get through our meal - 2 bowls of soup, a burrata appetizer, fish and chips entree, and a sushi roll. Several beers and a couple glasses of wine. Now we ask for the bill and let her know we have a Passport card. (this a buy one get one type card). SHE DENIES US and will not let us use the card! We have been here so many times and never have this issue. I asked to speak to a manager because this isn't right, and she says she is the manager. WOW. So we actually looked it up on the Passport website and this is the rule: An appetizer may be an entree only if an entree is ordered as well. So with that, we definitely should have gotten an appetizer taken of our bill, but she was on a power trip.
The takeaway is she was just trying to be nasty to us. I will be following up with the owner, and its doubtful we will be back which is unfortunate because we live down the street and walk there. We frequent Seasalt a lot, but that will be changing. If we do ever go back, we will never have her as a server again. That is guaranteed. She is ruining this restaurant's brand and is definitely the bad seed - everyone else seems to be quite nice. It true what they say - one bad apple can ruin the whole bunch - brand is everything.
An unexpectedly delightful evening from beginning to end. Across the road from the Pacific Ocean with on-site parking.
Enrique made us feel welcomed as valued guests. Salad and chowder were great starters. Both seafood entrees were delicious. Desserts were worth the extra calories.
Service was very poor for a business meal while in town. We had a private room setup, but the wait staff appeared to be short staffed and took a long time for the food to arrive. One of our guests waited over an hour for his food to arrive which was ridiculous. The manager did her best to help accommodate and ended up giving free desserts to our group which was nice.
How often do you go into a restaurant and look at the menu, then say I would eat everything on this menu? It doesn't happen very often but it did to me here.
Fanatastic cooked seafood we ordered was complemented by the great sushi. Highly recommended.
We will be back.
Great food - great service - lovely view - convenient parking -
Great location - love coming here
It can become a bit noisy during prime eating time on the patio - but that's very difficult to control
One of my favorite regular eating establishments
The service was horrible starting with the snarky hostess to the server. Food was expensive and bland. Service was slow. We didn't get acknowledged when seated for a long time. Overall bad experience. Would never go back.
We had a great time at Seasalt. We meet there for a business dinner. I work for a church and we brought in a special speaker and we wanted to treat him and his wife to a great place to eat. We had great service and an easy atmosphere to talk about the church and get to know him a little better.
Even though we had a reservation and went to the restaurant for the view and sunset, we were seated in a dark corner of the bar and waited on by the bar tender. When we asked the hostess about the seating she responded with a curt..this is your seat and there is no where else even though there was other seating that was vacant the entire time we were there. The food was very good and almost made up for the staff.
This restaurant is consistent in it's service and it's food. At times the customers get too loud and affect other's dining experience but it isn't something that the management can control. Would be wonderful if this restaurant can offer gluten free bread. So many restaurants are doing that especially since it's CA.
