Excellent restaurant! Friendly staff, great views and very good food. I've been dining here for nearly 30 years, and have never had a bad experience. The management and staff of this restaurant always do a wonderful job, and provide pleasant service with a spirit of aloha. The cuisine is a mix of steak and seafood, with a bit of tropical... More

When I am meeting friends and want to see the water and have good food, I pick Wind and Sea. I love the sour dough bread always served at the table. Best Mai Tais! I enjoy the fish and chips, salads and poke.

We dined at this restaurant one night while staying at the Dana Point Marina Inn. It was an easy walk from the inn as are several other restaurants at the Marina. It is located right on the marina with excellent views. The food was good but a little on the pricey side for the type of establishment. I guess that... More

One of the better restaurants at the Dana Point Harbor. Enjoyed the teriyaki shrimp. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the ocean. Service was very good.

Only really paying for the view here. Food quality and presentation is average. Server was OK, but greeter was a novice. I expected much more considering how expensive this place was.

We arrived at the restaurant around 8 pm after returning from Catalina Island. We did not have a reservation on a very busy July 4. They quickly accommodated our party of 5 with one of the best tables in the restaurant overlooking the water. We had a front row seat for the various firework displays. The food was delicious and...

First class food in a beautiful coastal setting. There was a fantastic buzz both inside the restaurant and on the pier surrounding it. I had a green salad with Mahi-Mahi .. absolutely superb! Highly recommend this restaurant.

We have a Dana Point condo and come here every year. For 25 years, we have dined at Wind & Sea. Not this year. We walked out. Cannot beat this spot for view, though. Sit on the patio, have a drink or two, enjoy snacks from the bar menu, watch the aquatic activities. Absolutely avoid the dining room. Food prices... More
