Our recent wedding at The Chart House Dana Point was everything we had hoped for and more. The restaurant has everything you need for a daytime wedding. A private setting with an outdoor area for the ceremony and a beautiful restaurant for the reception, with Dana Point Harbor and the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop. Marissa McQuillan, their sales manager, provided exceptional service both before the wedding and as the day-of-wedding coordinator. She was very accommodating, promptly responding to our questions and meeting with us to go over details so that our wedding day went smoothly. The Chart House staff was friendly, professional and provided excellent service. The food was superb with many of our guests complimenting us on how delicious it was. Thank you, Marissa and the staff at The Chart House, for a beautiful and memorable wedding.

My husband and I travelled from Australia to be married at the Chart House in Dana Point. We booked the venue and organised all of the arrangement via email/skype.
The venue was a perfect choice for us and we could not fault a single thing on the day. The view from the venue was stunning and provided a magnificent back drop for our special day. Marisa and her team were amazing in coordinating the whole event. They truly went above and beyond and nothing was too much trouble for them. From answering my 1000 emails to laying out the place cards, help was always on hand. The food was some of the best we have ever eaten and was very much enjoyed after the hectic day.
The Chart House is the perfect wedding venue. From the view, to the food, and the staff. All of our guests are still commenting about how fabulous the venue is, how delicious the food was and how friendly and helpful the staff were.
I have no doubt that organising a wedding from Australia would have been a dreadful task if we didn't have Marisa and the wonderful staff from the Chart house in our corner to take care of everything.

The Chart House in Dana Point was an absolutely amazing location for the Rehearsal Dinner. We had the outside location and was able to watch the sunset over the Dana Point harbor. The food was amazing, everyone raved about the filet mignon and I heard the salmon was tasty as well (and I am picky about how my salmon is cooked). The only thing I wished we had was some extra light when the sun was gone (they did bring out some candle light, but it was still dim). Also the evenings can get chilly on the cliff by the ocean, so even on a September evening some heating lamps would have been nice as well.

I also recommend using their valet parking. The fee was small and the street parking is minimal and quite a walk up a hill to some points.

Everything about the Chart House is amazing. First, the view. The pictures speak for themselves. You can't beat it. Second, the price. Surprisingly affordable especially considering the view and the quality of the food. If you have a day wedding, you get the entire restaurant for your wedding. Third, the food. I have eaten here a few times and we just had our tasting. The quality of the food (esp. the filet) was superb. And last but not least, Marisa. She has been so responsive and organized throughout this whole process. We really appreciate how communicative she has been and just how pleasant she is to work with. We can't wait to have our wedding here.

Ceremony & lunch reception on a gorgeous, warm, clear, summer day overlooking the Dana Point marina. The kids got to run around outside, the younger crowd danced inside, and adults talked in the bar and dining areas. So much going on after accepting a proposal, the last thing I wanted to worry about were the wedding vendors, especially, far away in a separate state/time-zone.

Marisa, staff and the regular vendors did a great job. Ran smoothly with their advise/feedback.

Appreciated Items:
- Flexible: most major decisions were made in advanced, but the final details I struggled to figure out until a couple weeks before they were great about--not that I recommend stressful last minute requests. Apologized for last minute drop-in on the way to my sister's wedding in April.
- Kept in touch: Glad they all seemed comfortable with email (my preference)
- Professional: everything from tables, chairs, cake, flowers, AV, photo booth, and photographer were ready to go before the ceremony started
- Attention to details: some horderves pulled aside for us, a piece of food prepared with the sauce separate because I'm allergic, couple first to eat, told the food came out warm and tasty (nerves prevented me from really eating much of anything), accessible water, water for my bouquet, mentioned not enough music picked out for the time allotted for lunch, etc.
- Experienced: This helped moved things along. It seemed like the day went by in a blink of an eye. Thankful to the serving staff for moving the buffet line along.
- Quality: Within budget. No last minute surprises like taxes forgotten or changes in delivered services after the contracts had been signed and money put down. An external vendor I got on my own was extremely stressful, since, I purchased the cheapest option and I was not apparently worth his company's time. Made Marisa and her recommended vendors shine in comparison.

Someone trying to be practical, I am very happy with this purchase.

Our wedding at the Dana Point Chart House was everything we hoped for and more! Marisa was absolutely amazing; words cannot describe how wonderful and accommodating she was. We decided on the Chart House because the views of the Dana Point harbor were stunning but Marisa really went the extra mile to make our day so special. Marisa made the wedding planning so easy; all I had to do was ask and she took care of everything. The Dana Point Chart House has amazing views, delicious food (I'm still getting compliments on how wonderful the food was), and Marisa made the event successful without adding extra stress!

Omg!!! If you are planning a wedding out doors. Check out the Chart House in Dana Point (I promise you will not be disappointed and it was very price reasonable). Not only is the place beautiful, but Marisa McQuillan the Catering Sales Manager is awesome! Not only did she make us feel comfortable but also she did what very few people know how to do, she listened.

Her staff is very professional they made our day better than we could have ever imagined! Marisa is on it. Anything you need she will know where to get or how to find it. Our wedding was so amazing. I can't say enough about the venue, Marisa, and her team. You go girl!!!!

An Absolutely Drop Dead Gorgeous Wedding Venue & Restaurant ....

This must be one of the best kept secrets in Orange County as it was FABULOUS and an incredible Price/Performer.

The first thing is that you can book the entire restaurant ALL for yourself between 11AM and 4PM. It's architecture (I understand it was designed by a student of the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright) is beautiful. The views are stunning. I would defy any location in Orange County, let alone Dana Point, to have a more incredibly beautiful setting. Among other things, what this meant for us were visual backdrops for wedding pictures that were beyond comparison: beautiful blue skies, a few puffy clouds, and a backdrop of the Dana Point Harbor, Pacific Ocean and sailboats.

It is situated on a point high above the crowds below, it is like you are in a cloud-like setting. While there is all sorts of scenery and potential activity around you, you are above it all ... really in a very private setting. The food is both exceptional and reasonably priced.

Marisa McQuillan was wonderful, essentially serving as both the Event Coordinator AND Wedding Planner. You can't buy service like she provided ... but she GIVES it to you!

This site does not allow enough room for me to properly review all of the Chart House's pluses. I put a full review on TripAdvisor. Link to it for more information as well as my pictures that, unfortunately, do not do it justice. If you can be flexible on the time of day (11AAM to 4PM) for your Wedding, you will be incredibly pleased with the Dana Point Chart House.

This is a great place for your Wedding as well as many other large, fun gatherings.
