Wonderful view and service. The Xmas lights at the harbor were an amazing combination with first class food. We recommend the Mahi Mahi.
We were attended immediately by the receptionist when I told her I had. Reservation. Were seated after 3 mins. The waiter assigned to us was bery attentive and provide excellent service.
Nice lunch in a nice spot. Staff should wear their masks correctly.
We have been going to Harpoon Henry's for almost 40 years and have never been disappointed.
Requested a window table to observe the Christmas harbor lights. Wonderful evening.
I cannot remember the name of our server but she wore a purple bow tie and was so attentive. She interacted amazing with our three kids and patiently took care of them when they tried to order. Super sweet lady! My son loves her.
The food was great, the view excellent and our server was exceptional
We had a great time and food was good. Our appetizers came at the same time as our main course, but other than that, the service was very good. We really had a great time
Awesome as usual. Great clam chowder, calamari and Shrimp Louie. Polished service and a great view of the marina.
Great place to eat. We were seated at a nice table with a good view. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The hostesses seated us right away and were very helpful and friendly. A very comfortable place and a pleasant dining experience.
Great spot for brunch on the patio overlooking the Dana Point Harbor! Bottomless Champagne, and the food was really great
Great ambiance, great food. Very disappointed in the service!
Food had no flavor and the oil that the fries were cook in needed to be changed, It was really good in the past but I don't think I'll be back. Sad
Great view and service.
Lots of people - food was delicious and well prepared. Pricey, but not unusual for the area. Lovely location. I would definitely visit again. Waiter Drew was very attentive and polite.
Always love the food and view of the Harbor from this restaurant.
Enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner. The food and view was wonderful.
Thanksgiving dinner at Harpoon Henry’s has always been a great experience. Highly recommend for a day of no dishes to clean.
The turkey meals at our table were excellent, breast meat not dried out, dressing & mashed potatoes very tasty. I was the only one with prime rib it was dried out and too tough to cut through. Having Au jus with it would have helped also. Pumpkin pin was to die for.
We had a delightful server, And the food was very good ( tuna stack , calamari and I Opinio).
Only disappointment was that in spite of me telling open table that we were celebrating a birthday and also notifying the server, nothing was done. After ordering wine and food for $200, I would think something, like a little cupcake with a candle, to say “ Happy Birthday” would be in order
1 Hour and 45 minutes to have salads and appetizers served. They were busy and they apologized but it was bad.
Excellent service, kind hostesses. Great food. Wonderful ambiance on patio with Christmas lights
Server offered us bread. Surprised to see a charge for it on bill. The special was overpriced, but that was our fault for not asking price beforehand. Food was delicious.
Alivia was a great server last night. We had a great dinner again. Always LOVE the calimari!
Very good food, excellent attentive service, nice evening view.
Great food and great service
The food was perfectly fine. It seems like a lot of the ocean-view restaurants have very similar menus these days.
The ambience was great - pretty view, not noisy and spacious seating. The service was attentive and friendly. We had a lovely evening.
Great lunch. All had great food and the staff was excellent.
We go to Harpoon Henry's often, always a good experience: ambience, food, and service. Excellent fish and chips. The Hawaiian Chicken is another favorite. We also take guests on occasion.
We had a great time
Visiting with our group of 4. Beautiful view. Great service. Was a perfect afternoon.
Restaurant views are amazing. Bar area is cool too. Meal was fantastic and our server (Abbey) was great. Nice casual environment with a wonderful atmosphere.
We are never disappointed in the calamari dinner and have eaten at HH for years!
Our waiter was super nice and efficient and served us well.
See you next time.
Family birthday dinner
We love to come here anytime we are in the area. We reserved a table on line and we’re shown right in when we arrived. Ordered a nice bottle of wine and had a delicious mahi-mahi dinner. The food was excellent and the service was good. The view over the marina was very nice and relaxing. The main restaurant was quiet and easy to carry on a conversation. We will be back for sure!!
Our server seemed a bit rushed and nervous - not sure if he is new, but probably needs to calm down a bit. Otherwise, the evening was nice, food tasty and nice view.
First time visiting, and we’ll be back. The restaurant was only a loud 50% filled, making for a quiet dinner watching a spectacular So Cal sunset. Why it was only 50% filled baffles me. The food was excellent, including the crab cakes, mahi mahi, fish and chips, tuns stack, and seafood combo were all quite tasty and ample. We started with huge coconut shrimp appetizers that were almost a meal in itself. Service was very friendly and competent. Definitely reasonably priced. We are looking forward to going to the Happy Hours which are offered Mon-Fri from 3-7 PM. HAPPY hours have a different theme each day and some food items are also discounted . Yum. Can’t wait!
We were seated promptly. The waiter took our drink order and brought our drinks. He asked if we wanted to enjoy our drinks for a bit before ordering which was great! Exactly what we wanted to do. We were never rushed and he waited for the nod to come take our food order. We both ordered the lobster and it was perfect! Plates we cleaned promptly. Everything was great! Would definitely recommend.
Food portions were generous; I had the halibut which was huge and only minor complaint was that the food could have been a little warmer and the mashed potato was lumpy. Had a lovely table upstairs by the window and watched the sunset. Good service and overall good experience. Nice place for a casual dinner.
It seemed as though our waiter was brand new. We had to ask him several times for the same item, and the hostess was helping him as well. We had to ask her for things at least twice. It appeared they were Under New Management, and were doing their best to keep things moving. The food was excellent, but they just seemed scattered.
