One of my favorites

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.

Cannons is located overlooking the Cliffs of Dana Point harbour, and the views alone are worth a visit, especially at sundown. The service and menu choices were first rate and the food itself was very good. This is the kind of restaurant that deserves a return visit.

We had a very large business dinner on the patio. There were drinks and appetizers served prior to us sitting down for dinner. I thought the space was very nice. The food was fine. The service was good.

Cannons has a great view of Dana Point Harbor as well as great service and food! We enjoyed this location so much we had our wedding reception here and were not disappointed by the service, food or venue.

We stopped in on Saturday evening to enjoy the view. We have been to the Chart House that sits next door to Cannons. The Chart House has the same view, but we thought the food was less than impressive...so we tried Cannons. What a great meal! The food is WAY better here than the Chart House. We had appetizers (the... More
