Great location at the harbor watching boats coming and going. Nice to eat outside and enjoy southern California weather!

The food is average and overpriced, but it is Dana Point. Menu is outdated. The views of the harbor are what make this place.

The ambiance is lovely, the cocktails are strong, servers are okay, but they serve typical frozen then fried appetizers and mediocre food at best!

We enjoyed dinner (4 adults 2 kids) with a beautiful marina view. We were seated along the window and the kids loved watching the sea lions playing in the water, the paddle boarders and boats coming in, and the adults enjoyed watching the amazing sunset. We went outside for the perfect picture. Server was very nice and happy. Food was... More

We were celebrating our anniversary and a family birthday so we were excited to be here. Our waiter Joe was super nice and very attentive. Fortunately it wasn't a very busy night on the patio. The view and water activities add to this casual dining experience. We ordered four different meals and 3 of 4 were quite good, they said.... More

One doesn't go here specifically for the food, let's just get that out of the way. The food is nothing spectacular or anything you've never tried (...or wanted to!). There are other factors that make this a wonderful place to have lunch, happy hour or dinner. A few of the reasons I recommend visiting W&S are: - Wind & Sea... More

We have been going here for years. My friend used to have a home a couple miles away. Now we stop by every time we are in the neighborhood. This time it was for lunch and the sliders and artichoke did not disappoint. They are famous for their mai tais, so I thought I should try one. Actually I have... More

First night in Dana Point, ate a lovely dinner at sunset. Mellow vibe, quiet, very open to ocean views from all tables. I had the cast iron scallops and my partner had the seared ahi. Both were prepared perfectly and both are tricky dishes. Drinks are reasonable and there are lots of wine-by-the-glass choices of decent vintages. Would have given... More
