Not impressed 3/19/2008

Recently took colleague for lunch having looked at the menu on-line. Thought it would be a decent restaurant based on the menu. However it is very down beat. We ate on the patio which is furnished with plastic furniture. Food mediocre. Clientele seemed to consist of families out for the day having a quick snack. Not impressed Pros: Lovely setting Cons: Scruffy looking place more

Wonderful; relaxed; great location; good food 3/10/2008

On 3/10/08, my sister and I had dinner here and really loved it. We started with margaritas on the rocks; they were excellent. My sister had salmon, potatoes and zucchini. It was a very generous portion of salmon and she raved about it. The zucchini were cooked perfectly to her taste and she finished off her plate. I had the scallops and pasta. It was supposed to be a bit spicy but I didn't notice that it was hot but I really liked it anyway. I probably wouldn't order that exact dish again but I wasn't disappointed and ate my entire dinner as well. We split a piece of cheesecake which was good as well. \r \r My recommendation is to ask to be seated outside. You have a lovely view of the boats and the temperature was perfect. There are only a few seats out there so you have to go early. Also, there was a pianist that played soft, wonderful, classical piano. It was such a lovely dinner; we were very pleased. more

Delicious Seafood, Casual Elegance 5/1/2007

We very much enjoyed our experience at the Harbor Grill. The service was prompt and pleasant, our waitress made recommendations and answered our questions. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was very nice with the live piano music. Overall, two thumbs up, and five stars. more

Great food, great service, great restaurant. 12/30/2006

Was looking for a great place to have lunch in Dana Point, and was told about Harbor Grill at Dana Point from the locals that lived in the area. They have been going to Harbor Grill for a long time, and loved the place. After their recommendation, I looked up the restaurant here on MSN City Guides. Was surprised to hear what was said here, but went with the suggestion. \r \r We were greeted by a very friendly person, who seated us right away. We had to wait for the rest of our party to arrive, and the waiters were very attentive during the wait. While we were waiting, we also watched the excellent attention the rest of the patrons got on the patio. Food that came out also looked great, and people were pleased. \r \r We tend to ask waiters for recommendation, and he was great at telling us the favorites of customers and his. We ordered a selection of seafood from salmon, scallops (which were HUGE!), shrimp and clam chowder, and all was done perfectly. The meals were served quickly, and the waiter did an excellent job of making sure our meals were satisfactory as well. \r \r I completely disagree with the previous reviews here, and highly recommend this restaurant. \r Pros: Food, service, selection of seafood, etc. Cons: Nothing more

Just Terrible! 2/13/2006

I've lived in the South County area like the previous poster for over 20 years but, I had never eaten at Harbor Grill until last month. I must say, that the experience was less than desirable. The food was merely average for what they charged, the service was very slow, not to mention rude. Waiter walked away when we were having trouble deciding instead of assisting. The mesquite seafood was cold in places. Waiter seemed uninterested (when we did see him) in trying to fix it. And refused to get management. We ended up paying, but left feeling cheated out of a good meal that we probably gotten elsewhere. Will not be returning or reccomending in the future. Cons: Rude Serivce, Below Average Food more

Best Seafood in the Harbor 11/2/2005

We have been going to HG for Twenty Years and the Food and Service have always been good to Very good. Fresh Fish and even a good Hamburger. Everything is Mesquite Grilled and cooked to perfection. Quality costs $ but they keep there prices fair. Enjoy! more

Overrated 4/20/2004

I heard about this restaraunt on local cable comercials. And was looking foward to a romantic dinner for two. The ""service"" was non-existant. The food was below average (not to mention undercooked) And no apology was given, Over-all, it was an over priced, over-rated experience that left me wishing I has gone elsewhere. Do yourself a favor when in Dana Point Harbor and are in search of excellent seafood. Go to Jon's Fish Market instead. It may not be posh, but the service is a damn sight better and the food is affordable and some of the best seafood in Orange County! Pros: Good piano player Cons: , bad service, bad food more
