What an incredible meal. When traveling, we always try to find a Mina restaurant because we know what we're in for. We got more than expected here. The food is so thoughtful as is the staff. We've never seen shellfish like this before. Wish I had a photo of it. The special pasta they made was to die for. We... More

Loved everything! Chef Raj surprised us with every dish. Service is the best ever too! The wines are perfectly matched. Top five of all dinners we've ever enjoyed in Dana Point area.

I've eaten at several Michael Mina's restaurants so I had really high expectations. I was unfortunately disappointed with the dinner service and the food was just okay. My first disappointment was that the online menu featured a shaved white truffle risotto which I was looking forward to. The waiter said the online menu was outdated and they do not have... More

Great meal - we had the lobster puff pastry for two and loved the dish along with the warm bread and cheese for starters. They even gave us some grey sea salt as a parting gift!

Our dining experience last night was amazing! Chef Raj prepared the most incredibly delicious entrees and our server Thomas was beyond delightful. The vibe is classy and cool! We are locals and can't believe we don't come here more often. This is my new favorite south OC restaurant and I can't wait to come back!

A welcome surprise in this otherwise generic St. Regis property. Stunning flavors and presentation. I didn't go for the Mina signature lobster pot pie, and I'm glad I didn't; the daily special fish preparation was superb. The waiter was helpful and friendly. I'd go back if I was in the area!

I've loved this restaurant since they first opened years ago, from Aqua to this restaurant today. My favorite area of the restaurant is NOT in front of their glass wall with gorgeous views, but in the bar at one of their four booths. It's intimate, dark, and chic. Cocktails are always delicious and their food is scrumptious!

We got a ride to the St. Regis from the Ritz, and we were very happy we did. The decor is great. The views were not those of the Ritz, but they were OK. Service was very professional and formal. Service was a little slow, but there were high maintenance tables near us. The food was awesome. Highly recommend the... More
