This is a restaurant over looking the ocean and providing nice sunset view and indoor as well as outdoor sitting. Getting reservation at this place was hard and as we ran late because of little baby, they accommodated us. Service was slow but turning the gas heater on helped us adjust to cold outdoors. They had a variety of food... More

One of the best manhattans I have ever had outside of NYC. Food was tasty and prices were fair. Wish it faced the west so we could have watched sunset.

We celebrated a family birthday here. The birthday boy age 18 picked it out. Much fun, and the food was amazing. Presented well, and good waiters. Up on a hill, views are good from the bar.

The Chart House Restaurants have been a So Cal staple for many decades. Had dinner here in March and would not go back. Food was only fair and a bit pricey.

The people were just awesome and we have been coming for years for our anniversary but this year was very disapointing ...they had no noodles for the shrimp dishes and the chicken panini was very bland just not like they used to be

Regular Menu, happy hour & view are all great. Patio is unbeatable. Get there early for happy hour. Many have already figured it out. Regular menu was a little pricey, but very good & worth the view. Been in Dana Point last 2 years & been there both times.

We hadn't been here in years because of some bad reviews we had read about bad service and cold food. As it turned out we received a gift certificate of $50.00 for this restaurant from a friend. We decided to give it another try so we went Easter Sunday for lunch. Boy were we in for a surprise. It was... More

Excellent food & service with Valet parking. Panoramic view of the Dana Point Harbor and boats made our dinner even more exciting. The view of the shoreline lit at night was phenomenal!

Dinner "good" not excellent. The best, and I mean the very best is the view. Reasonable price on the three course special. Service was above average.
