We set on the... More

Touristy and expensive, but you get what you pay for. On a gorgeous SoCal evening, were seated at one of the outdoor beachfront tables, perfect for people watching and of course a Pacific sunset. Super friendly and professional staff, from front desk to servers to food runners. Shared a beet salad which included citrus, very light and flavorful. My circumstances... More

While visiting Del Mar from NY for a dog show we went to dinner at Poseidon Restaurant on the beach. Yes it really is on the beach! There were 6 of us & we were able to reserve a table outside. The weather was cool & overcast but the restaurant has patio heaters that kept us so toasty. It was... More

To summarize, the location can't be beat, the restaurant is right on the beach. The service was perfect. Our waitress was attentive and friendly.

We enjoyed outdoor seating. Indoor is also available. The restaurant is right along the beach. Outdoor heating lamps if needed. Excellent service I enjoyed my broiled seafood platter and my colleague ordered the turkey club. They easily accommodated my dietary requirements.

We tried the Poseidon Restaurant while in Del Mar. (I should have asked for the menu to review upfront before being seated). This one was more upscale and expensive. We ended up just getting the entree "Coconut Shrimp" off the appetizers.. nothing else and still paid more here than we would have a full meal elsewhere. The shrimp was ok.... More

Order anything on this menu and your will not be sorry. Great view from your tables. We sat outside, it started to get chilly, the staff put on the heaters and gave us blankets. The beach was gorgeous. Our food was delicious and the service was spot on. If you love seafood, this place is the restaurant for you. If... More

This is one of our favorite places in the world. The location is even more impressive, in person. Their menu is fantastic and offer some amazing seafood dishes, creatively modified for California appeal. Did I mention how great the location is?

Order the Calamari!! Can't beat that sunset! You can sit on the couch at work or at the bar. TV, happy hour, fine dining, and panoramic view of the Pacific ocean. Fabulous! Right next-door to Delmar Motel and L'Auberge it was just right up the hill.
