When you want to have a happy hour drink and or appitizer or just choose from a varied menu, and enjoy a beautiful view of the Dana Point Harbor, this is it. The only challange is finding a parking spot on the street, because their lot is always full, if you get there at the peak time. The service may... More

Fantastic view of Dana Harbor. The night we were there we watched the super moon rise over the hills of Irvine. The food was delicious and the service was great. I had spinach salad and prime rib and both were amazing! We had a family gathering and we never felt rushed through the meal. Highly recommend this place!

Although we had a later reservation, watching the sun set over the harbor was pretty. Meal was average good. Our young waiter was unbelievably excellent.

We ate in the round dining room upstairs (request a window table). The service was superb I wish I could remember the waiters name. We started with oysters and I had the whole red snapper, which was perfect. My daughter had the sea bass. The view of the marina at night made for a special evening.

Shared a nice meal dining outside overlooking the harbor. Loved the lobster bisque, spinach salad, and the filet was absolutely perfect!

We were sat at a window table overlooking Dana Point Harbor. Our waiter was attentive. Clam chowder, Caesar Salad hot bread were quickly delivered. The main courses of steak & lobster and grilled fish were delivered hot, promptly and were very well prepared and the accompanying wine was excellent. We finished up with Chart House's signature dessert Lava Cake. Everything... More

We enjoyed drinks here on a hot afternoon with another couple. A smaller place with indoor and outdoor seating. We chose outdoors, keep in mind that u need to check in with a host/hostess to have a seat outside also. Drinks were good, we need not have anything else. The view was spectacular, service fine, parking is on the street,... More

It was my best friends wedding. At first we were hesitant to have the ceremony in their garden area, but when we saw the view, it was like love at first sight. Everything was amazing.. From the Location to the view to the service and food! I would def. go back!

I have eaten here (mainly for business lunches and dinners) several times, but my hubby has never been along for the ride. We are vacationing from Dallas to SoCal and I was anxious to share the past good experiences with my sweetie. Everything was as great as I remembered. View = Awesome. Food = Delicious. My husband orders Chilean Sea... More
