Seasalt - Del Mar Ratings and Reviews

We enjoyed the fish entrees that were ordered and took the leftovers home.
My husband and I enjoy the artichoke appetizer prepared with roasted garlic.
The New England style chowder is fabulous and served very hot (temperature).
Our friends liked their dinner - it was their first time dining there.
The owner, Sal, gave us a complimentary dessert - yum!
We will go back there again - It's one of our favorites!

Our food was OK. The only plate that stood out was he fish and chips.
Service was terrible. Our waiter was.......elsewhere. Never brought the bread and when we asked, he brought it after we finished eating. Maybe bread is good with...ice cram.
We also brought two bottles of our own wine. When we asked him to open the second one
he took forever, so we opened it by ourselves. And we were....charged....!!!!
Even the check came 14 minutes after we asked for it.
The tables next to us were lucky. They had a waiter that was on top of everything.
My wife did not finished her plate and nobody asked why. Let it stay a mystery.....!
Don't think I will go back, at least for sometime. Our friends said the same.
I wish the service (and food) was better because the location is amazing.

I had just delivered 29 Boy Scouts to Fiesta Island for a week of summer camp. I decided to celebrate by having dinner at Seasalt that was just around the corner from where we were staying. It was a great choice. I had the fried calamari as an appetizer and then chioppino as a main course. Both were fresh and flavorful. Couple the food with a great view of the lagoon from the patio made for a great meal. A good place for seafood and sushi with great service and ambience.

SeaSalt is just meh. The service is generally slow, which is the most annoying thing about this restaurant. The food is middle of the road, but some of it is pretty good. The view is really great, across the lagoon to the ocean. There is ample parking, too, which is nice in this neighborhood. We went for lunch and had Sushi. This is not a good place to get sushi. They have a separate sushi menu, but on the regular menu is a sort of incompatible list of mediterranean seafood-centric pasta dishes and the like. That menu is pretty good; maybe not exactly a value, but you are also paying for the view.
I recommend this place mostly for the view, but the non-sushi menu is good, too.

My wife and I went to Seasalt for a Wednesday night date night sunset dinner. We were pleased to be seated at a table right next to the window so would have had a great sunset except for the marine layer. Regardless, the view was exceptional and we enjoyed it greatly. The food was pretty good but not exceptional. I had the crab cakes which were good as well as the ciaopino which I enjoyed but would have preferred a little better seasoning. The service was probably the best part of the experience. Our waiter, I apologize that I forgot his name, was on point throughout the night. Everything I expect from a waiter. Overall the night was a great experience. I will likely return to enjoy Seasalt again.

Great place to go for lunch or dinner. I have been here twice and have been impressed both times. The food is fresh, diverse for all pallets and reasonably priced. I will find more opportunities to visit again. Great job guys!

The food was amazing. My wife is from Italy and this is one of the most authentic restaurants we have been to in awhile. The portions are generous and cooked to perfection. My personal favorite was the Squid Ink pasta.
The service wasn't bad in total, most people seemed busy, except our waiter who was never to be found. When he would show up in the dinning room he had to be waved over to get any help (and would forget to get things that we asked so would have to ask other servers).
We will be back as the food and ambiance was outstanding. The owner is also extremely personable and friendly.

This place is a hidden gem. The fish was fresh. The owner was very nice. The setting was beautiful. My wife and I truly enjoyed our first visit and plan on going again soon. This place reminded me of going in someone's home. The waiter was new and a little slow, but that was to be expected from someone in training. A great guy with manners! This place is now a place to go for Great Food! Thank You Opentable !

We had great time, food was fresh and tasted really good. Service was good also. Only complaint I would have is that we had to ask for bread and when it came there were only 2 rolls in the basket but we were three of us at the table. I guess they expected us to share it, which we did. Waiter never asked if we need more until it came time to order dessert.
So, only suggestion I would have is to be not stingy about the bread and be generous.

This was my first time there and i loved it. My halibut dinner was delicious and I enjoyed the "Asian" version of my Moscow Mule cocktail. Our waiter was courteous and the food was delivered in record time. Unfortunately, my parent's experience was not the same. A table of noisy kids and parents put a squash on the evening for them as they were celebrating their 45th anniversary. Other than that, I give this restaurant high ratings.

We dine at Seasalt frequently and are never disappointed. Whether you are a vegetarian or omnivore, Seasalt has (or can create) something wonderful for you. The view over the lagoon from the enclosed patio is spectacular. Enjoy!

We were there for my girlfriend's birthday. Food was fine. View is lovely. I think this restaurant could be better with their PR. My friend is allergic to shrimp so she asked if she could get 2 scallops instead of a shrimp and a scallop with her fish entree. Waiter said yes sure. When the bill came he added a $3 up charge to do it. Petty maybe, but either do it gratis or tell the customer that your restaurant does this. Also the manager or owner is not friendly and the whole wait staff vibe is kind of weird and creepy.
We had heard great things about this restaurant so we went for the first time. The patio tables do have a pretty view of Torrey Pines beach. Service was inconsistent and we had to wait a very long time for our wine. By the way, they only have beer and wine, no liquor. The crab cake appetizer was very mediocre. The rest of the meal was average; nothing really stood out.

Our first visit and we will be back and bring our friends! We had the Artichoke Hearts appetizer which was delish, followed by 2 awesome and very different salads. In our typical style we shared the main dish, mushroom sausage ravioli- YUM! My new fav !

Great place but know that there is no full bar! And now I need to keep writing because I need to have at least 50 characters - really?! And the one star on food is because they won't let me submit a review without eating food. How do I rate the food if I only had wine and no food??

The food was very good. My family enjoyed all of their meals. When we arrived, I was greeted by my first name. The host knew who I was based on my reservation. Our table was ready and there was no waiting. There was a nice view of he lagoon and beach. The only negative perhaps was the sound of the traffic on the street. Overall it as a nice dining experience.
Evening out with friends
The four of us had a good dinner. Food was exceptional for the price but the service was slow. Our waiter was good but just not enough staff to cover the tables... Seemed a bit disorganized, a good example would be when we had the spicy tuna rolls for an appetizers. A food server brought out the rolls but did not bring the soy sauce, so we had to wait another 5 minutes for our waiter to bring it out... We had three different main dishes 2 vodka pasta with salmon, the grilled sea food trio (shrimp, scallop, swordfish) , and the special which was pan seared sea bass. In summary, the food was excellent and we will be back despite the service shortcomings
Treehouse View of the Los Penasquitos Lagoon
If you are looking for a cozy but bustling restaurant that has reasonable food prices and a fabulous view of Torrey Pines Beach and the Las Penasquitos Lagoon, Sea Salt is it. With just enough pizzazz on the menu, emphasis on seafood and pasta dishes, the place is run by experienced restaurateurs who know and care about good service and an efficient kitchen. I took my mother and a lady friend here for Mother's Day after a Saturday matinee. We celebrated the holiday on Saturday, a little earlier in the day, to avoid the crowds and typically poor service when eating on out Mother's Day Sunday. We hit the jackpot, walking in at 5:10pm (after having no lunch). We had reservations, but the early timetable allowed us our pick of tables. We selected a cozy corner table on the outside (but covered) deck. Heat lamps were not even needed due to the plastic enclosure which kept us warm and dry without obstructing the view. We shared a delicious, classic wedge salad, dripping with just the right amount of homemade blue cheese dressing but crunchy bacon bits and a few colorful accoutrements. The entrees arrived with just the right timing and our jaws dropped at the pure perfection of each plentiful dish - all different from one another but executed without a flaw. I have never seen so many clams on a spaghetti with clams dish anywhere. The cioppino was chock full of swordfish, salmon, mussels, clams and a large shrimp. So bountiful, I took half of it home and had a full dinner the following evening. Our server was sufficiently friendly without joining our party (I hate that) and the final bill was extremely reasonable considering we order a total of five glasses of wine (but no dessert, we were too satisfied to ruin the comfort feeling). I forgot to use a $15 loyalty card against the bill, so I guess I will be returning very soon. The happy hour menu, available only at the bar, is extensive and so well selected, I would be tempted to order one of everything.
