    We had a reservation for 5 people When we checked in they offered a It would have been very difficult to get in and out of this booth for the people in our party due to their mobility issues. So they offered us a table for 4 people and we were to pull up a chair in the walkway to make it for 5. We asked to seated at a table that accommodated 5 comfortably . We were told there was no other tables. There seemed to be about 4 unoccupied tables that would have been just fine for us but we were told that larger parties were coming g in to use those tables. So we said thank you and went to another nearby place to eat dinner. Then we were notified by open table that the Wind and Sea restaurant reported us as no showing our reservation. Which is very upsetting.I can’t believe hey lied,!! We were there!! They did not have a table for 5 for us. Very upsetting . It was the first day of our vacation. I remember very nice memories from Wind and Sea in the past. So I feel badly we had such a sad experience.

    I have been to this restaurant many times. Most of the time I am thrilled, but this most recent visit was a bit of a disappointment. While our server, Holly, was professional and personable, we did receive our food cool. It quickly became cold, which is never a good look for fish and chips. The parking was a nightmare with three of the four of us having to park in a distant lot. We're all over 60 so, while the walk was scenic, it was also quite far.

    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!

    The ambience is always a hit, never complain about our view. We had a very nice table for Mother’s Day overlooking the harbor. Probably the only complaint is they had changed the menu quite a bit so a lot of the staple dishes that I believe were quite popular back then they no longer have. I do understand that you have to keep the menu fresh, but with that, I didn’t find a lot of options on the menu as in before. The prices a bit steep, but I believe this has to do with the location and the ambience. Overall wind is still a definite, good choice.

    Great views in the restaurant. The food quality was good, but a little pricey. The service was good. We had a reservation but due to horrendous traffic, we were more than an hour late, but they were able to accomodate us. Parking is currently an issue due to the Harbor Renovation project, reducing the available parking space significantly.
