Food was good, service was less than one would expect for a restaurant of this supposed caliber. Entrees are 30-40 dollars. Views are good, 3 star rating based on lack of service. Had to ask for water and wine requests. Asked for green tea for dessert, they drop off a tea box with no green tea. Asked again for green... More

Almost had this place to ourselves and enjoyed a couple of yummy meals. Waiter was learning his trade but affable and gave us some local beach tips. Worth going for a drink alone and enjoying the view.

Food is good, calamari starters for example is special. But the view is special and you need to try for that row of window tables if you can. That said most tables have a view too

Yes the view is great, but the food is too lacking. Will not be going back. The service was ok, a little on the slow side.

Made a reservation two weeks in advance for a birthday dinner. The view of the harbor was spectacular; the food was excellent. Highly recommended. One complaint: The reservation was made two weeks in advance online. The online form asked for special requests, etc. I indicated that it was a special birthday dinner for someone visiting from out of town and... More

A wonderful place to view Dana Point Harbor and a drink to watch the sunset. Happy hour has a variety of snacks for purchase but dinner was ok. The service was fair but the food was disappointing, heavy bacon flavor in chowder and the sauces on the fish was thick and too heavy for delicate fish.

5 stars for the views, 4 stars for the service, but only 2 for the food... avoid the soups and sandwiches... good coconut shrimp. Overpriced.

Overall, it was really good. It was busy because of Prom or something like that. Service was good but I wish they had more options for vegan food. the view was awesome.

This restaurant has incredible views of the harbor. Gorgeous! However, the food is lacking. We had to send 3 out of 4 dinners back due to being over-cooked. Two halibut dinners were dry. One filet mignon was ordered as medium rare, but served as well. The prime rib was only available as medium or higher (I normally order medium rare,... More
