    Service was top notch - timely & friendly - from the host, hostess, server, and food runner. Everything was delivered in a reasonable (short) amount of time. The server wasn't just "memorized my lines"- friendly, but genuine and helpful. Ditto for the food runner. The food was excellent and the ambience just what you would expect for a luxury dining experience. A+

    The upper patio is very nice for people and dog watching. The Clam Chowder was delicious, lot of clams. The Calamari Stripes were ok but I wouldn't get them again. The Mud Pie was Fantastic.

    As long time Dana Point locals, we always enjoy the Wind & Sea restaurant. It was my mother's 94th birthday yesterday and she loved her dinner party there. There were seven of us and we all loved our meals. We had seared ahi, veggie burgers, fried calamari steak, and wedge salad w/ bleu cheese and bacon. All an A+++ Our server was the best and even brought my mother a birthday ice cream pie wedge with a candle! Looking forward to our next visit for another enjoyable meal. Watching the sea lions from the window is an entertaining plus!
