My husband and I went here to celebrate our birthdays. We called to place a reservation and it was a good thing we did because when we got there at 8pm there was a 45min wait. We ordered sushi and it was all delicious. It was fresh and some of the rolls were very different, but in keeping with traditional... More

Although the experience was nice and most of the fish was fresh, this is not the place to go for a true sushi experience. When I was sat next to a patron eating a cheeseburger I figured I had picked the wrong spot for my first sushi dinner in california with my family on vacation. I am staying at the... More

We had dinner at Mahe and although we we cann't that is wasn't good it also wasn' t wow! The service was one of a kind. We had the impression that they had other tables to serve which they found more important to serve.

Mahe is not right on the water, but the food and ambiance makes up for it. There is a nice outdoor seating area which faces the ocean, so you can get a nice view, even though it's across the street from the water. Everything is top-notch -- the seafood is fresh and prepared impeccably; the meats are quality and the... More

Nice place with a wide menu selection - something for everyone. They have a sushi bar and teppan grills (reservations recommended). Great outdoor seating, too.

Probabely the worst sushi restaurant I have been to. The fish were tasteless like they has either been frozen or washed before serving. Restaurant with no interest and of course pricy

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
