This place has stunning views while you enjoy your meal. Service was good, valet parking offered and the atmostphere is not stuffy despite it being a very high end view. I would recommend and will visit again. The food was very good and priced as expected by the views really make this place a must.

We had a wonderful dinner here during our stay at the Blue Lantern Inn. We walked over from our hotel, were seated immediately in a great view table (honestly, ALL the tables in this restaurant are great 'view' tables). I had the Filet Mignon, while my wife enjoyed the Mixed Seafood Skewers. We BOTH agree that it was among the... More

Love Cannons. With a commanding view of Dana Point Harbor it doesn't get much better. The food and service are consistently very good. It's a little pricey but the view is worth it. Highly recommend it.

Great food, service, and WOW! the view is outstanding. On the pricey side so we don't go a lot. But when company come from out of town, it's our favorite place to dine.

Sunset over the harbour at Dana Point. The Pacific glistening as a backdrop....what's not to love? Coconut prawns and grilled Ahi served by a fun waitress who still laughed giving us the bill. I laughed too coz even as a Brit and a strong dollar this is value for money! Well worth a visit but likely better in the summer... More

Had a group of 7 for New Year's eve dinner. We had a short wait, but got a very nice table with a view of the harbor. The harbor still had all the lights from their luminary festival. Beautiful sight! All the dinners were great! The lobster bisque was the best. Order any of the fish, all were very good.

Went there for a business dinner. Beautiful view of Dana Point Harbor and they had a holiday boat parade going on which had boats decorated in lights cruising through the harbor. Service was very good, friendly and made sure we were enjoying the experience. Had the Salmon which was good but nothing special. Desserts like the cheesecake and German Chocolate... More

before going to the harbor for Illuminocean, my girlfriend a I stopped here for appetizers. From this restaurant, you can look down and see the Harbor in its entirety. Next time, we will make reservations and have dinner. Patio dining is also available.
