We made reservations on open table and when we arrived we were promptly seated at a very nice booth with views of the ocean, The weather was windy (i.e outside seating was closed) and the ocean restless. Our views of the ocean were superb.

Service was stellar.

We opted for a variety of dishes to share. We had ceviche, calamari, coconut shrimp, and my husband also enjoyed a fish taco. Food was all very tasty and good. Nice size portions.

My husband enjoyed a spicy margarita as his drink. I had an ice tea The server did an amazing job of keeping the glass full.

There is a $6 fee for valet parking; it makes a lot of sense to do this and price is reasonable given the stellar ocean location.

We had a superb lunch and loved the food and the views

Cannot find a better location in Del Mar than the outdoor patio. The menu is OK, and the pricing is quite a bit more than even this great location should demand. Wait staff is adequate at best. Parking is valet only.

This is more of a story than a review. A few months ago my wife and I walked the beach in Del Mar and decided to get a drink and appetizers at Poseidon. We had been here for drinks once before. It is right on the beach and the view is great. When we walked in it was busy and there was only one table in the bar area with some seats at it but there was a sign that a couple were taken. We talked to the waitress and she said it was OK to sit at the other ones. After a few minutes an elderly man in a wheelchair was rolled up to the reserved seats by what appeared to be his caretaker. He smiled at us and it was clear that he had lost his ability to speak. A few of the staff stopped by and said hello. We struck up a conversation with his caretaker. She said he stopped in twice a day and went to the store to buy bananas and oranges in between visits. On this day he had purchased bananas. He offered us each one and we accepted. His eyes lit up and he clearly enjoyed giving. His caretaker explained that he owned the Poseidon. The chef came out and gave him a hug. While he wasn't able to speak a word, we had a very nice conversation with him. The drinks and food were great. I think you should go to Poseidon just because they understand how to honor and care for this man.

This was a very nice place for a beautiful view for breakfast. The food was good but it just missed a few things. Such as no butter for the table and part of the food was room temp the potatoes were actually cold. Just not as good as it should be for the money. The food we had was tasty but it just could have been better.
