We went specifically for early dining and drinks, good value Happy Hour menu. Fantastic view of the harbour, but very windy-so just be prepared. Food was above average, the sliders and calamari were just a little too heavily sauced/dressed and too sweet for my palate....More

Maybe best view in Dana Point. Happy hour has a broad section of appetizers and wines but service can be slow if crowded so put in your orders as soon as selected. Some street parking otherwise valet

This is a restaurant up above the harbour and has excellent views as a result. Good little bar area, nice relaxed ambiance, with a mix of ages and couples and families. Food was good but fully priced.

The Chart House is a great place to eat dinner. The food is wonderful and the severs treat you like royalty. Love it here. The view of Dana Point Harbor is breathtaking.

The view, the food, the service and the general ambience was excellent. The service was first class and we were treated in such a way that we will come back soon and often.

We really enjoyed our selves. The view over looks the harbor, the food is great and the staff is friendly. If you want to take a drink outside after dinner, there is an area to enjoy the harbor views from also. Lovely.

Great view of Dana Point Harbour. Food is not so good. I was there for Thanksgiving dinner once, didn't feel well after that. Food was better on my friend's 1 year wedding anniversary though.

Dinner was disappointing despite dining with a nice harbor view, as the restaurant ran out of the bottle of wine I ordered, did not offer Caesar salad at the pricey salad bar, and served a well overcooked & dry fillet mignon despite my having ordered...More

Service amazing view amazing. Food is out of this world especially the chocolate dessert that you need to order straight away. I had the crab stuffed shrimp it was so fresh and good. Loved Chart House so much we went back again two days later

I don't even think there is a sidewalk walking up the hill from Harbor Dr. You could walk it more easily going up Golden lantern, Left on Del Prado, Left on Blue Lantern, Right on Santa Clara, Left on Scenic. It might sound... More

Hi Dianne, sorry for the long delay! I'm sorry, but I do not know these things. Maybe you meant to message the restaurant and not a reviewer???
