Lisa M. is a blessing when it comes to special events and coordinating! I can write a review just explaining how courteous and customer-oriented she is & how she made all the difference. She was very good about getting back to us (which was important since we started to arrange the wedding from across the country as soon as we moved there). Aside from how amazing she is, the venue speaks for itself - it is absolutely phenomenal - if you like beautiful panoramic views of the ocean (our guests said they saw whales!), delicious food and a staff that makes you feel like no none else is as important as you and the groom today! Which should obviously be the case when you're getting married!! We had some bumps in the road, as do most things when you're planning them so far in advance, but Lisa was always available to suggest alternatives and to work things out for the better - because in the end, you can tell she works in a customer-service industry. The restaurant has been voted as one of the hottest places to get married; to be honest it's because there really isn't a downside to it unless you're allergic to beautiful views and amazing food ;)

We had the outside terrace and paid to start the wedding an extra hour earlier (to allow for more dancing of course!). Even though the DJ had to stop playing at 10pm because of city ordinance, we had the after-party on the rooftop at the Doubletree in Dana Point (which was surprisingly a blast!!).

Lisa always made sure we were cautious of the time, as most weddings have their delays, (I was only 15 min late walking down the isle!). She made all our guests felt like royalty, was politically correct when needed-to-be and made the whole thing so easy & fun, we were considering to do it all over again :)

*Everyone LOVED the filet mignon and the macadamia chicken; as for the apps=coconut shrimp and lamp chop lolipops were a HUGE hit!

We tied the knot at Cannon's a few weeks back, & I am so glad we did. Suzy Fairchild was amazing, she had everything dialed in from the beginning when we decided on Cannons, to the day of, and all was executed flawlessly.

The food: the guests raved about the food, all the different types of apps, salads, main entrees and sides...were AMAZING. People, believe me when I say, I've been to quite a few weddings, and I am not being biased when I say, the guests literally approached us during and after the wedding...even now, raving about the food. It was divine.

The service: Nothing to say, but Fabulous, they have this dialed in.

The venue: Magical...check out the patio and view, it's something I will always remember, and our guests too :)

Suzy: Hats off to you. There is a reason why your venue is #1 for so many years in a row. Being from NORCal and having our wedding at your venue, was the best decision we made, and this is partly because of the way you helped plan and execute our event, exactly how we wanted it. You even "touched up" my lip gloss, which I don't recall being in the contract ;) You are amazing, and a tremendous asset to the establishment. Thank you so much for your services....we may be down next year for our anniversary. Will thank you again in person.

We wish Cannons, Suzy, and Staff, nothing but the best...and to all brides & grooms who are interested in this venue, DO IT!

We had the pleasure of working with Suzy at Cannons Seafood Grill. She was very helpful and answered all of my tedious questions I had in the beginning. After visiting the location… and WOW the view really cannot be beat in Dana Point or most areas in Southern California… I knew this was the place I wanted to have my reception. The food tasting was one of my favorite parts in all of the “pre-wedding” activities! Cannons has you pick several salads and entrees to sample to choose your wedding menu from and it was certainly a difficult decision! After choosing the foods and linens and designing the reception layout along with our fabulous wedding coordinator, everything else was 100% stress free for me. We just showed up on our wedding night to the most beautiful setting and all of our guests raved about the appetizers, specialty drinks, and food!

This place has great food and a great view of Dana Harbor. I didn't have to worry about an arch, or linens and chairs. It was all there. I had a day wedding and a small number of guests so the top room was cost effective and the view was fantastic. Right next door is the Blue Lantern Inn which we stayed at which meant transportation was not an issue. Fantastic! If we renew our vows here it will be there once again.

My husband and I are so incredibly happy that we chose to get married and have our reception at Cannon's. Like everyone else says, the view is amazing and the food is wonderful. The staff is so attentive and Suzy definitely knows her stuff. We were so well taken care of from the contract signing onward all the way until the end. Every single guest that we heard of had a fabulous time, loved the venue and the food- which was buffet style with plenty for everyone. We especially love that we can now go back to Cannon's every year for our anniversary, which Suzy urged us to do as well so she could see us as we progressed in our marriage (ahem by having kids)!

p.s. If you sign the contract to have Cannon's be your wedding venue, go hungry to the food tasting! We got huge portions to taste our four different salads and entrees, complete with drinks from the bar- amazing service I tell you...

I am so happy that I chose Cannons for our reception venue. All of my guests commented on the great food and the amazing view. The onsite wedding coordinator, Suzy, helped to make everything run perfectly. I felt like I really got to truly enjoy myself at my wedding because Cannons did such a great job. Also, Cannons does not have any hidden costs that many other venues have (ie parking, cake cutting fee, etc).

It was an exceptionally beautiful location for a wedding reception. The views from the restaurant were simply gorgeous. It rained in the morning so by the time we had our reception it was just miles and miles of clear blue sky and beautiful water. Just like a postcard!

The staff waitering our reception was highly professional and courteous. They helped us decorate the rooms by placing centerpieces on the tables and setting up the room to our specifications. The coordinater, Suzy, was very accomodating.I did not have to worry about anything! They made our day that much more special.

Food was excellent! The price for a meal for children is a little steep because you pay half the price of an adult but they get only chicken fingers and fries, but in the end you get so much more in value.

I would love to return there every year for our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, we moved to Illinois. But our photos and video will always be there for us!

I would highly reccomend Cannon's to other people searching for a spot to get married. The view, atmosphere, and the food were exelent. Suzy Fairchild, who is the wedding coordinater was exceptional. She was very responsive and even went out of her way to help with the ceremony rehearsal. She was wonderful. My husband and I couldn't have picked a more perfect spot that Cannon's.

This restaurant was our date night restaurant and to have our wedding here was a dream! Suzy the restaurant event coordinator was always responsive and super friendly! The packages they have here are fantastic and makes it easy. The hardest part was deciding what to have on the menu but Suzy offered great suggestions! My guests only had great things to say about the food. The location was amazing!! It sits on a cliff and you have the most incredible view of the harbor!!! Our wedding was in December with the ceremony outside on the patio with the dinner reception indoors. It was the best day of our lives and the venue was a big factor. What we paid did not reflect how amazing this place is! Everyone thought we went over budget...not the case here. It was very reasonable and Id use this venue over and over again!

My husband & I wanted a casual style, beachy wedding. We looked through our options down along the coast, mostly in Laguna Beach but the logistics or the venues were never quite right. Then we visited Cannons and it met all of our criteria.

My husband loves to surf so the interior space downstairs was the selling point for him with all of the old surfing photos and wooden surfboards. The view of the harbor was beautiful and also a major selling point even though it technically was not the beach. The fact that we would have the site to ourselves on the day of the wedding since we were having a day wedding and the restaurant is closed until dinner was also a plus. And then the ample parking lot right outside the restaurant was the clincher since most places we had considered in Laguna either did not offer parking or it was a offsite lot.

The staff here was great. Suzy was always responsive and very easy going. She even offered to move us outside to the patio with no extra charge as we got close to the date and the weather looked beautiful. We had chosen the interior space because we liked the space but also in case of inclement weather. She also gave me a tip about the local Dana Point Marriott where I had considered staying the night prior to the wedding and having my pictures taken prior to the wedding. She told me they had restrictions on bridal photography if I was not getting married there. After her heads up, I phoned the hotel and learned that they charged a sizable ($2,500 if I remember correctly) amount for a 'location fee' to be able to take photographs. I did not stay there.

On the day of the wedding everything went very smoothly. Suzy and the staff were very attentive to my husband & I, always coming by to make sure we had everything we needed. All the guests loved the venue and we received many repeated compliments.

A great place with a fantastic view. We had the upper private room and it was great for my entire family for our rehearsal dinner!! The food was excellent and it was a lot of food for your buck! Great service, friendly staff, great location. The whole place was packed with another wedding reception happening downstairs/outside but you would never know that because they provide enough staff and you could not hear the noise!

Great view, great service, down to earth fun place, great food. Perfect place to get married if you are looking for an amazing alternative to a cookie cutter hotel wedding in Orange County. Suzy (restaurant coordinator) and owners are friendly and extremely helpful. They really helped make our wedding warm, friendly, and very personalized.

My husband and I can not say enough great things about Cannons Restaurant! We had the most amazing time for our wedding which took place on June 12, 2010. The staff was incredible and very attentive - our glasses were never empty - the coordinator (Suzy Fairchild) was very attentive and on top of things during the whole wedding planning process as well. The food was AMAZING! We did buffet style and no one went hungry! All our guests are still raving about the food and of course the view! Cannons was the first place we looked at and the only place we looked at! The ceremony and reception ran very smoothly and we would not change one thing about the entire event - except maybe having added a few extra hours! ;-) The whole experience was memorable. From the view, to the staff, to delicious food - the venue was the perfect choice for us! We highly recommend Cannons to anyone! You will not be sorry if you choose this place for a wedding ... or even just a dinner date! ;-) Thank you Cannons!!

Best to all,
The newlyweds - Kristen & Chris

Cannon's Seafood Grill in Dana Point is the absolutely most gorgeous place to get married! It is up on a cliff overlooking the Dana Point Harbor and it could not have been more beautiful. We had our ceremony and reception in the same place (on the patio). All of our wedding guests were blown away at the view and how pretty my wedding was. And, it was so awesome dancing the night away under the stars. The food is amazing too! If you choose the buffet dinner, you get to pick FOUR types of main entrees/meats and everyone can have some of everything. And, everything is so delicious. We have gotten so much good feedback from our wedding! The only bummer is the space is a little tight on the patio. It's not wide, it's more long and so people are a little more spread out along the length of the patio, but the view made up for the space :)

Cannons has an amazing view and setting. It is a great experience and place for the price. I was impressed with how much we got for our money. The food is fantastic and the service is great and accomodating. The coordinator, Susie, is very supportive and friendly. I would recommend to this venue for any bride. I wish that I could do it all over again at this place.

The location first of all is absolutely gorgeous. All of my bridal party and parents had not seen it until the day before at the rehearsal and they all about fell over they were so shocked with how beautiful the view is. For southern California and the view the venue is actually very well priced. All of the waiters were extremely helpful and made us feel like royalty. They were very formal and knew exactly what to do. I had done a lot of the stuff myself but had family helping set up and the waiters all jumped in willing to help out. I would say everything the day of was perfect. The only tiny complaint I had was that before the wedding I felt a little...scared...of the venue coordinator. I think she is just really confident in her venue and doesn't nurture the worrisome bride like me that wants to know about everything and make everything perfect! haha And twice I didn't get an email/call back so it was a little hard to be so far away planning at the venue. But when we did come visit she was very accommodating in making sure the venue was open to plan at.
