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.

We came here with friends and were given a delightful booth like table with a view. We shared the spinach salad which was generous in size and tasty. My stuffed shrimp was yummy and hubby's savoury shrimp pasta was very good. Service was very good even though our waitress was on the chatty side. After dinner we walked outside to... More

I booked a table for 8pm on New Year’s Eve, arriving at 7:45pm to find that valet parking was full. I was advised to "try and find something up the road".....not the best start! When we checked into the restaurant, we were advised that they were running 15 mins late, however this turned out to be over 45 mins before... More

Parking can be a problem but the view over looking the Dana Pt Harbor is beautiful. It was worth the price of the dinner because the view is so good, especially at sunset.

Fun place to come for happy hour. Good news is the views and prices are good. Limited is the parking and also the seating inside. You can get a seat for two at a table or bar but hard to get other seatings for larger groups.

I was there for NYE and I couldn't be more disappointed with this place. They were running late on reservations, their staff is laughable and apologetic (the worst staff I've ever seen), there was nothing special for nye and their food is just average. I would not recommend to any friends or family. Despite from the view, there's no reason... More

I made a reservation over a month in advance for our family of 4 Christmas Eve dinner and we were seated in the bar directly across from an AC vent that blew out such cold air I kept my jacket on the entire time and it chilled our food immediately. We noticed the air right away and asked to move... More

They have some great views of course from their cliff top panorama, but not all tables have good views. Avoid the tight dark middle section near the check in. Even if you must wait a little longer, do it if you want a good bang for your dollar. Food is average to excellent depending on what you order. Niko our... More
