Make sure if you make your reservation online that you specify that you want "inside" if you do not want to sit on the patio. We went for the first time with a 6:45 online reservation and were told we had to sit on the patio (even though I questioned it and was not happy about it). It was a... More

We ate with a family group of six. Wait staff was knowledgeable, the diverse group of dishes were all good and the prices were reasonable.

The food was fabulous and delicious. The atmosphere was also good. We sat outside, and the heaters kept us plenty warm..

We were to meet friends from out of state who were on a tight schedule so we had to drive up from San Diego. I researched some restaurants and chose Mahe because of its menu and local ratings. WOW, were we pleasantly surprised and extremely delighted with this wonderful restaurant. Food was reasonably priced, service was outstanding and we will... More

We only had sushi, which in especially California that just means rolls. I've lived in Japan almost half my life so I won't hold that against them for presentation or being perfect. That being said it was just ok. I had better sushi out of Ralph's grocery store, and much cheaper. The restaurant had a nice feel to it, unfortunately... More

I was surprised it wasn't better, seeing that there were quite a few people that recommended Mahe to our group. We had a pretty big group, 12-15, so maybe that was the issue. I would try it again, but not with that many people.

Stopped in for happy hour and while the $4 California roll was average, the bartender made us a drink that was surprisingly good, as in it's the first drink we've NOT needed to order an additional shot to taste the main ingredient. All too often drinks taste like the mixer only, causing us to order the fixer shot, or just... More

Good and very diverse sushi. Always fresh and delish. My favorite thing on the menu is the tropical sashimi dish on the appetizer menu - I think it's mango or papaya with the fish, fresh and delicious! They also have a great happy hour menu - a good selection of sushi, rolls, tempura, along with good prices on beer and... More

While in Dana Point, CA for a work event, I needed a nice restaurant to bring my team to (30 people). Since I'm not from the area, I ate there the night before with just a few people to make sure it was decent. I was very pleased. Mahe has great food, a nice menu selection and very friendly staff....

This is a popular restaurant. We were here on a Monday night and the bar & music were really loud. We sat outside to avoid the noise and it was better. We had Super Crunchy Roll (quite good) and the Fried Rice Shrimp. It was good but not outstanding. Our waiter was a bit indifferent, although he took care of... More
