Wind & Sea was a nice choice for my family and friends. It's casual elegance so dress casual, not in beachwear. We made reservations ahead of time for a table out on the deck. The weather was perfect and the food delicious. Calamari strips were...More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We were seated right by the windows and had a great view of the boats going in and out of the harbor. Our server was very nice and the food was very good. We would go there again.

Food was good and seemingly fresh. All my teens found good things for them to have for dinner. It is market driven regarding prices, so it shouldn’t be a surprise. We were really spoiled by the staff. Had a great time.

We did not have a bad meal in Dana Point. We had salmon, mahi, calamari, ono, and I tried clam chowder at almost every Dana Point restaurant.
