Had birthday celebration, party of three. Great window table and evening started out very nicely. Good server who went on break. Fish entrees were good but prime rib first came out undercooked, sent it back, within two minutes same piece came back well done, sent it back and finally had a close to medium piece delivered by manager. Second waiter... More

Based on the feedback I took my family here as a last night of our holiday meal. Sadly it just didn't live up to the reviews for us. Very attentive service, great views but the expensive menu proved a let down with fatty steak, cold food and tasteless scallops and prawns. Perhaps our expectations were too high, but I have...

This is one of my favorite places to have a really nice meal. I've eaten here for dinner and also attended a wedding here. The food is very good and the view of Dana Point Harbor is fantastic. You can't beat it.

This restaurant offers gorgeous ocean views. The happy hour is great and the service was excellent. Parking can get tight along the street but the Chart House offers $6 valet, which is definitely worth it during busy dinning times.

My boyfriend and I have dined often at this chart house location for birthdays or special occasions. We live in Diamond Bar and we drive an hour to get there. We invited our family to join us on July 16 to celebrate our marriage. We have never been disappointed. Fabulous food and service! The views are incredible and were wonderful... More

I made an appointment and when I arrived with wife, was told we didn't have one. I spoke with them and even gave the name and time of the person I made a reservation with. After a few minutes and some talking, they found a table for us with a view. We have eaten here before, but this time it... More

Traveled with a group of six for a corporate meeting. The menu had so many choices and the smells in the restaurant were wonderful. The view of the harbor from our table was beautiful

What an awesome restaurant was an awesome view. The drive up the side of the cliff was scary but well worth it. The restaurant is situated in a cliff and has spectacular views of the harbor. There was an outdoor area to take pictures – you must do. The food was phenomenal. Even our teenagers love the food. The staff... More

We have been coming to this outstanding Dana Point restaurant for years, and every time we visit Southern California. This place never disappoints! Excellent section of fresh seafood prepared to your perfection. The usual line up of popular cuts of juicy steaks, and as always, their famous prime rib offerings. Fabulous salad bar with caviar! Very nice cocktail lounge to... More

Chart House Dana Point has consistently good food and a wonderful view of the harbor. I esoecially enjoy their Happy Hour. The calamari and the shrimp tacos are my favorites, although the shrimp and vegetable fritters and the firecracker shrimp are also delicious. Their house wine is pretty good too!
