Seasalt - Del Mar Ratings and Reviews
Had a wonderful view of the sun setting as we had our dinner last Good Friday. Excellent array of seafood choices especially since it was Lenten Friday when Catholics can only have seafood meals. Have meals (dinners and the occasional lunch) here about once a month and have never had a slow service.
My fish entree (salmon) was nicely prepared - it was moist and tasty!
My husband enjoyed his fish dinner too.
The server brought the wrong soup but quickly returned it to the kitchen and brought the
I think our friends enjoyed the evening altho it was a bit loud in the area we were seated.
We booked our reservation via Opentable, and i also have a passport dining card which entitles you to a second entree for free of equal or lesser value. The waiter took our bill, and made the charge. Then the owner comes, and then tells us we cannot combine opentable + passport dining since we are getting both coupons? I am like what the heck are you talking about? He's like i am paying open table $15 for a confirmed reservation, and you are using the passport card, and you cannot use that since i am already paying open table and my rent is expensive. You have to pay full price, i cannot honor passport dining card. I am like so what? I am not using coupons, i booked my reservation on a reservation website, and i am using passport dining card which is paid annually for high-end restaurants, and whatever you pay to open table and your rent is none of my business. Can you believe what the owner did? Made a big scene with other customers are eating, he doesn't have good management skills, and then to top it off he even honored the card, since it was his mistake, and then apologized at the end when it was too late. Any good owner/manager would of never argued like this, when i the customer was right in the first place, pathetic experience ruined our entire quiet night we were having. He wanted to call the opentable guy right there at 8pm at Inight, when they were closed; he also wanted to take my number down to follow up after he called opentable, and i said no i am not giving you my number. This owner is lousy, and doesn't even know what's right. I have never ever encountered anything like this before ever.
We were very happy with our entire visit to Seasalt; the food was very good and the portions were very generous. We also felt that prices were a good value for what you get, especially when compared to restaurants of much lower quality that charge as much or more. Service was very attentive - we couldn't have asked for anything more.
SeaSalt was excellent. Great views, the food was excellent! Even the kids menu was great, 3 simple choices but the kids loved them (and asked for their leftovers the next day). We had drinks, appetizers, dinner and dessert and all were perfect! The service was fast and friendly. A great restaurant! Thank you!
I've eaten here 20 times or more. Always reliable. The patio has a nice view of the estuary and is reasonably quiet. The menu does not rotate in the two years I have eaten here except daily fish specials, but everything on the menu is well done. The portion sizes are quite large. Nice staff that are capable and willing to accommodate menu tweaks.
Seasalt- Del Mar is actually very special place me and my fiance. After visiting various restaurants, my fiance, back then boyfriend, planned for Seasalt to be our banquet place with our friends and family after the proposal. The proposal day was my first time vising this place and this was my second time visiting. So when we parked and walked into the restaurant, I couldn't help but to indulge in the special memories we gathered at this place.
We actually brought my mom, who just landed from Korea that day. We couldn't wait to introduce to her a special restaurant to us.
Probably because it was a last night on a Sunday, the restaurant was relatively quiet, which we actually preferred. The lighting and the ambiance is relaxing yet romantic, as I remembered :).
Not only do they have great ambiance, but our food choices were very pleasing to our pallets. We ordered two different pastas and a salmon dish. All of them were memorable and I was able to enjoy till the last bit, though the dishes were relatively big.
I definitely recommend all of you guys to visit this restaurant to make a special memories for your selves :)
Service was fine. Started with fried calamari and wedge lettuce salad which were good; not great. Ordered three entrees, the scallops and risotto from the menu and two specials, the sea bass and ravioli that was supposed to be stuffed with fish. Entrees can only be described as terrible. Chef needs to learn how to cook risotto. Sea bass was very tough; if you dropped it on the floor it would have bounced back up. Mashed potatoes were lumpy. I received 4 pieces of ravioli with two sauces - no sides like the other dishes. If there was fish stuffed in the ravioli the quantity was so small it was undetectable. Cannot remember the price of the ravioli however if it was $20 the profit was $18. I guess we were supposed to have bread on the table but we never received. When we paid the bill we provided a Passport card which allows one meal free. The waitress and manager had an argument and the manager claimed with two specials we could not use the card, although the specials were no cheaper than the meal on the main menu. We paid the bill in full, tipped the waitress 20% and left. Total bill was $150 and the food was probably worth $20 total. The food and the atmosphere was appropriate if you came off the beach during the day and wanted to have some fish and chips although I am sure that would be overpriced. In summary the restaurant was terrible, particularly the food. I was embarrassed to take my wife and son promising a good meal. Better to go to the Fish Market in Del Mar where you cannot miss a good meal and at a much cheaper price point.
View was the primary reason we booked this restaurant and had hoped that the food would be good as well. However, we were disappointed in the appetizers (sushi roll, Mussles(we sent back) and decent but oily calamari) that we decided to forgo ordering an entree.
