On a warm day the patio is the best place to be for happy hour. Great view of the harbor and headlands. Great selections.

The food, exquisite. And dessert... More

My husband and I visited SoCal in late January for our nephew's wedding and my birthday. We'd been to the Chart House in Dana Point a couple of times before and I requested that he make reservations for my birthday dinner there.

This restaurant was very good. It was a little pricy though. The interior of the restaurant was very cool and It felt like you were on a cruise ship. I had the Filet and Salad Bar and they were both tasty.

Let's just put it this way we will never go back there ever again.who wants a waiter engaging in a conversation with you and your guess. There infused drinks are a joke.

Beautiful views and wonderful food. Does not have a chain restaurant vibe. Do not miss it! We viewed the parade of boats from our window table. Also great views if you stand outside restaurant.

The food was good, but it took forever to get wine and get served. At the end, we waited for ages to get a waiter to bring our check and then to process the payment. Don't go if you're in a rush.
