This restaurant is right on the water so you can see the ocean waves crash which is spectacular. Parking is a challenge to say the least. You pay for those of you with the prices but if you go doing happy hour not too bad.

I only recommend the breakfast. The evening sittings are crowded and the food just above average. OK for out of town visitors because of the beach location.

Not my first time... Poseidon is well known to the locals of Del Mar, but this is a definite WOW for your 'bucket list', if you are coming to San Diego. Inside , the wall of glass windows faces the ocean... This wall opens up...More

The most expensive item on the menu is a $50 steak with a coffee rub. Well, the vegetarian in me went for the Thai veggie dish instead. Everyone else at the table ordered seafood. No one raved about the dinners. They were OK, nothing out...More

There are probably only a few restaurants in the world with a location as good as this for dining out of doors on a summer night. On the Poseidon terrace, you are sitting out on the sand (fortunately not in the sand) with waves breaking...More

The Poseidon is serving Easter brunch from the regular menu, which is individually priced (no a buffet) so the price will vary depending on what is ordered.

Del MAR, California, not Del Ray. Big difference. Del Mar is just north of San Diego.
