We always stop here when we are in the area. Excellent customer service and everything tastes fresh. They don't rush you when you are ordering and they explain the menu very well.

The ono fish is good. We tried several things and enjoyed them all. They charge a fair price for a decent meal.

It is easy to overlook Wahoo's - it is all over, it is a chain, it is unpretentious - but the food is very solid, good, consistent; great citrus slaw, good beans, nice fish - a very good value; nice cooked vegetables. Service is consistently good, more than expected even the format and pricing.

I love a nice fish taco but this place was a major disappointment. The tacos are very unsubstantial and lacks any sort of taste.

This is in the Costa Mesa mall and a typical Wahoos taco. I like the tacos and will come back. Nothing crazy but your typical Wahoo's fish taco.

Really enjoy this location and the fish tacos from Wahoo's. Service and options from the menu has something for everyone. My wife and I try to get here once a month for a good meal.

We had a group of 11 and everyone found something to enjoy. Several of us had the bowls with rice and chicken, some had the tacos and one had the chicken soup. Not a lot of flavor in the bowls - definitely need to add hot sauce or other sauce, but it was fresh and a generous portion. Chips and... More

I have eaten at this restaurant weekly for the last four years and find the service extremely efficient and friendly. All the food is exceptional but I have the same meal every time I go. The strips of beef with crunchy noodles and the most amazing cilantro dressing. The atmosphere is always good and the decor is fabulous. They have... More
