This Chart House is on a hilltop, looking down on Dana Point Harbor, and Pacific Ocean. Nice, quiet area, but, what a view!

I took my parents and sister here for dinner on 13th May 2016. The last time I had been to a Chart House was around 25 years ago so I was a bit worried that they might have let standards slip. This branch is still special with stunning, somewhat isolated location in quiet residential area, on a bluff overlooking Dana... More

Great appetizers, cocktails, food and service. We had the calamari to start and it was delicious! I had the mahi and my husband had prime rib and lobster tail. The view is awesome! No complaints here!!

I love everything about this restaurant. My wife and I were staying at the Blue Lantern Inn in Dana Point for our anniversary and they recommended the Chart House for dinner. What a great experience! The way you descend into the place is amazing, and then the interior is so interesting. We were seated at a window with a terrific... More

We have gone to the Chart House on a number of occasions and decided to go up for Happy Hour. There were a couple of girls waiting/cued up on the wall in the bar area, us and a couple behind us.

As spectacular as the location is, it can't make up for the disgusting way we were treated here. The staff totally failed to control an obnoxious customer who attacked the waiter with a despicable verbal assault, while he was serving our table. When I asked him to leave my table and take his complaint elsewhere he subjected me to a... More
