Well-known for our signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish, and Crème Brûlée, the Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks and grilled meats.



Located near the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, the Brigantine features fireside seating in a casual dining room, and in the adjacent lounge. Outdoor dining is available on one of our intimate patios, which include both fireplace and water features.



Private dining is available.



The Escondido Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, and lunch Monday-Saturday. Join us for our signature Happy Hour.

    We ordered a variety of dishes: swordfish, fish and chips as well as my favorite fish dish. All were excellent. It was busy, but quieted down to conduct a brief business meeting. Good service, great food and time to enjoy the company with no rush!

    Miguel T was our waiter and he was very attentive to my requests. I have allergies to gluten, dairy and soy and he coordinated with the chef to make sure my meal was perfect. Thank you.

    One of our favorite restaurants. Always a good dining experience. Only minor negative this visit was that the entrees were served too soon following the salads

    Great place for a relaxing dinner. Innovative chef creating surprising delicious seafood dishes! We sat outside on their patio. I would recommend outside for the ambiance. Service was top-notch!

    Love this location. Food is reliably good, drinks are pricey…but good. Service is friendly and attentive. Problems: 1. Icy cold….take a sweater and wear socks! 2. No longer have any tables that are comfortable for 2/3 persons to dine. 3. Loud! All those large tables (seat 6) get very noisy!
