Brigantine La Mesa
Service was fantastic, our waitress was wonderful and extremely attentive. Food was great always enjoy the Brig.
Terrific service, great food, and would recommend to anyone. We went Sunday around 1 p.m., and it was a bit noisy but it did settle down after a while.
Fantastic as always! You can always rely on getting a great meal and great customer service at the Brigantine. Our waiter Miles was very friendly and always has a great attitude. Have eaten here for many years, and will continue to do so! You won't be disappointed if you have a meal here....For either a quick stop in or a special occasion. It is our favorite place to eat in East County.
Another fabulous night
It was lovely for my mom’s birthday.
Coco our waitress was awesome!
Anniversary dinner special provided dinner for 2 with soup or salad, 2 entree for$50. NY steak and swordfish were both excellent. Service by Coco was superb. Happy Anniversary to the Brig.
We were celebrating our 30 wedding Anniversary and had a wonderful time!
Thanks to the Brig. and their team mates for helping us celebrate.
Our server Rhonda was excellent and explained the menu options and specials.
We were celebrating 2 birthdays and each lady received a desert choice.
We will be back.
This was a fantastic spot for a quick work lunch. Plenty of food options to please many and the food is always delicious
Steak was gristly, only ate 50%
Even though I live in East County I don’t eat here because I like to eat by the water. But the restaurants by the water have gotten ridiculous! They are way too expensive! This was a great value, great food, great service and I can’t believe I have not gone here very much.
We have been to this location several times before and this time was a little more personably and the service was great. Thanks for a happy birthday
The Brig is always good, we go there a lot and are never disappointed. Too bad there are not more restaurants like this in the La Mesa/El Cajon area.
They actually had the best dish they have ever made as a special! The calamari relleno used to be on the regular menu and is the reason I got hooked on the Brigantine. I still ask for it every time I dine here, which is often, at least once a week. The oysters Rockefeller are also delicious.
Great lunch. Amazing specials. Stuffed Mahi Mahi was to die for :) Good Service as well.
Great night thanks to great food and even greater service. Thanks Sheila!
enjoyed, as usual. However, one thing that bothers me almost every time I visit the men's room. Towel waste basket always overflowing. Toilet floor wet and toilet messy. Sink counter wet and messy.
This is a turn off after an otherwise nice evening.
someone should have the duty of policing the restrooms on a regular schedule.
Our experience at the Brig was incredible! From the service to the food, we had a wonderful dinner last week. Our server recommended the Wok Charred Ahi and I couldn't have been happier! Was great! My son got the crab and artichoke stuffed seabass and he said it was one of the best seabass dishes he has ever had. Would definitely recommend this Brig!
The Brigantine is always a great place to dine. My favorite dish there is the swordfish. It’s always fresh and delicious! The service has always been excellent and my family and I have been dining there for many years.
I have never had fish and chips where the fish was tough!! Who ever heard of tough fish?
Overdone fish , and fries they should be ashamed of. Overdone yet soggy.
Clam chowder was very thick and gluey, but flavor was good.
I made my reservation a few weeks ago. It’s my 12 year old son’s favorite restaurant and I thought we would go to celebrate my 47th birthday.
We arrived early and had to wait for our table. When the were finally ready to take us back, they took us through the main dining area, to another room and place us at a tiny two-top table right next to the serving area. WTF? This is where you place me to celebrate my birthday (they knew about this beforehand as I had mentioned it in my reservation notes).
The clam chowder was the worst I’ve ever had and the entrees were mediocre at best.
This was our last time at Brigantine.
We’ll take our business to Anthony’s.
Great experience. Candy was an excellent waiter. The menu has great variety and the food is delicious. The Brigantine in La Mesa provides a great dining experience with local convenience.
Excellent service and quality of food. The server was professional and attentive.
Great place for brunch. I would be happy to pay more for a better grade of sparkling wine, however.
We always enjoy dinner at the Brigantine. The staff is great and always willing to please. Favorite entre is the Alaskan halibut. Love it when they bring in the fresh Maine lobster.
One of my favorite places to eat. I remember first eating at the Coronado location in early 2000s when me and other Sailors would go for lunch. Been going to the La Mesa location since 2012 when I moved back to San Diego and am never disappointed.
Tonight I had one of the specials, the artichoke and crab stuffed sea bass. Fantastic! I had sea bass at one of Gordon Ramsay's restaurants in Tokyo in 2010. The Brigantine does it even better.
Tonight was a farewell dinner for my dad after he spent the summer with us. This is his favorite restaurant in San Diego too.
We celebrated the Brig’s 50th with good friends. The swordfish and steak were excellent and Olivia did a great job taking care of us.
They are a La Mesa staple restaurant celebrating 50 years. They are a go-to bar and restaurant for a lot of people - especially people that live in the neighborhood. Love it!
The Brigantine never lets us down. After the delicious meal and superior service, we always leave happy and looking forward to our next visit!
Date night was fun nice environment and cuisine. Love the remodel they did.
Great dinner, great service! John was a fantastic server and made our dining experience a fun one! Thanks!!!
Lovely evening with our dear friends and Forrest, our server, made it such a pleasant experience.
Always a favorite place for us to dine. Great food, great friends, great restaurant.
Very impressed with the food and service. When we arrived, our table was ready, and we were seated immediately. It was a wonderful dining experience, and we'll definitely return...
Food and service was awesome as always!
This is our go-to place for celebrations! Love everything about it...and food is always cooked to perfection!
Thank you for making me feel special on my 66th birthday :)
The Brigantine in La Mesa works with me on my very low salt diet. It is a place I can go with salt ruining the next few days.
A very nice restaurant to celebrate a wedding anniversary.
I have been going to this restaurant for years and have always liked it. I still do BUT THE PARKING IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE! In the last year or so, when I've come for lunch, I've had to add at least twenty minutes to my arrival time in order to be on time for my reservation because the parking is nonexistent. To drive around for 15 minutes just to find parking is crazy! And there aren't that many people inside the Brig. So who do these cars belong to? I'm seriously considering other options. My Cobb salad was exceptionally good this time with a bit more lobster in the bowl! Really tasty. But our server was simply subpar. Very sloppy and careless. And now the restaurant is adding a 4% surcharge. While I understand the need to up the minimum wage, I feel like you snuck it in there on us unsuspecting customers. Just raise the price of the menu items and cut out the surcharge. Straight forward and honest. We can handle it. :-)
Our server, Rodrigo was excellent. He timed the serving of the meal perfectly, and that is a lost art!
