Have been here twice. We have always been sat right at our reservation time. Our white wine has been nice and cold, which is important to me. The sushi is good quality and fairly priced. The service can be a bit spotty but they do try. The last time we were there we had a party of 7 and kids... More

We were not overly impressed, 3 girls at check in, chatting, felt like interrupting them though did seat us right away. Our waiter was attentive until we ordered then did not see him until cleared table, never checked back on the food. Ordered a mahi dinner which was very good and variety of sushi rolls which were average. Ordered crab... More

Went for happy hour. Wife likes sushi and I can do without. Happy hour had choices for us both. Sushi is very reasonably priced. She would prefer it come out colder than it did - only barely cool when received it. The kobe beef sliders were very good and worth it. The mahi sliders were less protein but that's to... More

The California Roll had no dipping sauce. The Beef and Chicken skewers were underwhelming. The Rain Roll will be ordered again. Very good. The Service was fine. Water glasses filled before they were empty. This restaurant is a hit or miss. We had had great food experiences and so-so food experiences. Great service and rude service. It is not a... More

We found ourselves in Dana Point for a late dinner and checked out Mahe after a nearby restaurant had 1) a 15-20 minute wait and 2) was quite loud. My cell phone data was weak, so we went in "blind" (no peek at Trip Advisor first). We were seated quickly after reviewing the menu. Our server was very attentive &... More

Happy hour all day Sunday. Drinks, sushi and service all top quality. The rolls were large and the fish fresh. We highly recommend the spicy tuna roll.

Until 6:00, dinner at the Hibachi Grill is almost 40% off the prime time prices. Amount of food was plentiful, even if pretty standard for "Benihana's" type dining. Full Bar. Many people took advantage of the Happy Hour Specials offered at this restaurant. Would definitely recommend.

The French onion soup was an amazing appetizer along with edaame. They also had an amazing wild salmon with really amazing mashed potatoes. They also had a great grilled pineapple desert that was great too.

Great location on the marina and a solid (if limited) selection of sushi specialty rolls, which is what we came for. The menu is about half classic seafood and half sushi, which seems like a good choice for the location. My self-styled sushi-ninja kids, who have sampled sushi coast to coast, tried the Sunrise, Devil and Rainbow rolls and had... More
