First time here. Made a reservation and it was full when we arrived at 7pm. Sat outside. Had the the Grilled Sea Bass, sushi and the Sake Salmon. We enjoyed all. Portions were very nice and the prices great too. Server recommended a delicious Chardonnay. Great service. Would return when in town again.

Nothing to brag about here sushi roll wise at least. We tried the Jackie Chan roll, the Queen roll and the Devil roll. Each one was quite bland and the avocado was a bit too overripe. Attentive service though.

I traveled here from Colorado less than a week ago and during my stay at The Ritz Carlton, the lady at the front desk recommended Mahe once I told her that I was in the mood for good sushi. It was the perfect recommendation. I went friday night and tried the Rain Sushi which was oh so good! The lady... More

We went to this restaurant for happy hour while visiting Dana Point. The happy hour menu was extensive, reasonably priced, and delicious, at least int terms of the items we ordered (sushi, mahi sliders, and veggie tempura). We sat in the outdoor heated patio - wonderful ambience. Service was friendly and prompt. Would definitely return next time we are in... More

If you are suspected to be/look like a tourist, be aware. Based on our recent experience: went there for a Happy Hour during the weekend. Servers could care less about us. They were busy catching up. Our server got annoyed with the new guests at her table, and we paid a dear price for invading her territory. To our disbelief,... More

I'm not an expert on sushi, but I've had sushi from grocery stores all the way up to the most expensive restaurants over the past 20 years, so I do have some idea of what is expected. Unfortunately, the sushi this evening was not expected - or good. I only ordered salmon sushi due to previous gastrointestinal issues - especially... More

What a lovely restaurant - really buzzing - great atmosphere, friendly service and some fabulous food - we had lots of sharing plates and didn't get a bad dish amongst all the ones we tried. We also appreciated the way they looked after our young grandson and made us all feel welcome despite the fact that it is clearly mainly... More

This is a good place in Dana Point but location is hampered by a crowded shopping mall feeling. Across form the beauty salon and underneath the health club there are many waterfront places across the street that are a better value and feel.

We had time to kill before the Christmas Boat Parade started so we had appetizers there.We sat outside on the patio. I had the sliders with shoestring fries and my husband had Clam Chowder soup that was very hot and tasty. We will go back again for sure.
