I was there with a group on Valentine’s Day. We were seated in the middle near the “live music” it was AWFUL. I am not sure why the restaurant manager thought VOLUME 999 was an option for a small sized restaurant. It completely ruined our conversation and was impossible to enjoy. Food was OK. Fish choices were sparse and they had no appetizers?!

We visited this restaurant for dinner on Xmas Eve. The seating was good and the service was great. However, the food was average. For the price, we expected a little more effort.

Enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving Brunch at The Vue restaurant. The food (Turkey, prime rib, pork loin) all tasted great. Lots of choices. Great desert selection too.

We chose patio seating which offered a spectacular view.

Will definitely go back.

Vue is a nice restaurant overlooking Dana Point Harbor. We were a party of 10 with kids. Went for Sunday brunch. We were seated right away, nice big table outside on the grass with ocean view. White linens cover the table with coffee, water and juice all ready. Also two umbrellas were already set up over the table. Server Jose was very attentive. We were fine with the brunch selection. Saturday evening, we ate at Overvue, above the Vue. The appetizers were a generous portion. There was a good band playing. They sang to my Dad for his Birthday. Server was also attentive.

Upscale dining with great view. Chicken Masala was phenomenal, generous pours on the glasses of wine, great service.

The service was excellent, & the view is great. It was nice to sit outside & watch kids playing on the spacious front lawn--even though they weren't our own! My husband & I got the Margarita pizza as an appetizer and the Italian meatloaf for dinner. The pizza was just ok, very skimpy on the cheese, but the meatloaf was fabulous. Recommended, especially if you are staying at the hotel.

Didn't expect much but wow we were amazed by the food and service! Not to mention the view.
We loved our food. The fried calamari, the Scottish salmon was full of flavor and the papardelle pasta was excellent. Will be back!!!

The occasion was the yearly Fourth of July Fireworks and Barbecue spectacular. And, as usual, it was a wonderful event. The food is very casual for this occasion and focuses on the traditional BBQ : barbecued chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled steaks, and baked beans. But there are enough interesting and delicious salads to keep the health conscious happy - as well as fresh watermelon for dessert. The custom mac and cheese station created a delicious bowl of everything - we shared more than one.
The live music is fun, the outdoor seating is lovely, and the family friendly atmosphere (and games for the kids) is great.
And, of course, the fireworks from Dana Point Harbor are thrilling!

Horrible experience. Our reservation was for 7pm. We were seated immediately, but our server did not greet us for half an hour. Ee finally ordered, but were still waiting for our meal at 8:30. We addressed the issue to the hostess, who apologized but we were unwilling to wait any longer. We went to the Vue Above Lounge upstairs, ordered, and received our meals within 20 minutes.
