The minute you walk into Poseidon, you’ll be swept by the fabulous view. You couldn’t be closer to the sand and the beach than sitting at Poseidon on their beautiful outdoor patio. With such a spectacular ocean view, you’ll experience breathtaking sunsets and during the right season even catch a glimpse of the whales migrating up or down the coast. The bar offers a large circular firepit, which is nice on those chilly fall or winter nights. Off to the side of the bar is a split level dining room offering every table a panoramic view of the beach and the ocean. For decades, Poseidon has delighted both local San Diegans and the tourists that love the beach.

    Visited Poseidon for the first time this past Sunday to celebrate a birthday. Valet was full (normally $8+tip per vehicle) at 1215pm, and even the metered spots. Paid $22 to be able to join my friends for lunch (2hrs max for $22). Not a wide variety of choices for lunch and per dish is $40+. Chose breakfast as it gave us more selection (priced between $22-35), plus added a couple of appetizers. The crab cake and calamari were just OK, and the sangria was very light, especially filled with so much ice. I was not impressed with the lemon drop raspberry martini and should have switched to another drink, but it was hard to catch our server who we had to chase for napkins, ketchup, water refill, and our bill. It felt everything was a long wait, especially when you only have two hours and must run back to make sure that you do not receive a ticket, or that your car isn't towed. The ambiance was wonderful, but I doubt I'd go back. I had a better experience next door, at Jake's Del Mar.

    I had the best Mother’s Day brunch !! The food was so delicious we are still talking about it ! Service was perfect’ We paid for parking across the street. Regret not using the valet service the restaurant provides for way less cost ! If I could have given more than 5 stars I would ! Can’t wait to go back !

    Portions of the dishes are surprisingly small so I felt most of the plates are overpriced. Ambience and service were great, food was good. I would say the pricing and taste don’t really match but I guess you are paying for the view/location. Seeing the sunset right in front of you was also great.

    Our reservation was for 645. The view was beautiful, unfortunately it was overcast that day so no sunset to be seen. The scallops were delicious along with the special of the day, which was panko crusted halibut. Guadalupe, our server, was friendly and attentive. She brought us out a delicious, complimentary, crème brûlée to end our meal in celebration of our anniversary. Will definitely visit there again.

    Hello, Poseidon is a beautiful spot on the beach in Del Mar. They have valet parking available which was very convenient. The food looked beautiful but our eggs benedict were awful. No Canadian bacon, just a huge pile of ham, hollandaise sauce was spicy and not traditional. Jut not good. Very disappointing. Nice place to get drinks.
