Impress Your Clients with Dana Point Sedan Service

Entertaining clients can be a bit nerve-wracking, especially if you don’t know them very well. You already have enough on your mind without having to worry about how the restaurant you choose will fare with your clients. Fortunately, wining and dining is made easy thanks to Dana Point’s selection of great restaurants. Leave it to us to share some tried-and-true local favorites that are destined to wow.

Before you do anything, reserve your Dana Point sedan service. Your sedan service serves a very important purpose, aside from getting you and your clients home safely if you enjoy a few libations. It tells your clients that you're prepared and that you've spared no expense on them. Once you’ve got car service squared away, make a reservation at one of these great Dana Point restaurants.

Chart House

For absolutely breathtaking views of the Pacific, not to mention inventive, delicious dishes, nothing beats Chart House. On a clear day, the view from the dining room extends 50 miles down the coast all the way to La Jolla. While the menu is full of classic steakhouse staples, it also includes a variety of creative, American-style dishes and fresh seafood, including mahimahi, ahi tuna, and salmon. It’s generally recommended that you save room for dessert too: The chocolate lava cake is heavenly.


If your clients crave authentic Italian cuisine, Luciana’s Ristorante is the place to go. Their beautiful Del Prado Avenue location makes it easy to enjoy a meal al fresco, where you can revel on the cozy patio in near-perfect weather. The menu offers classic Italian dishes, including pasta, pork loin, steak, and fresh seafood. Leave room for a cup of coffee and dessert. The tiramisu and gelato won't disappoint.

Stonehill Tavern

As one of celebrity chef Michael Mina's famous restaurants, Stonehill Tavern attracts foodies from all over. When you make a reservation at this Monarch Beach Resort restaurant, you know you're about to have the meal of your life. If you really want to impress your clients, look no further than Stonehill Tavern. The menu is truly inspired with fresh, locally-sourced produce and seasonal seafood dishes.

Gemmell’s Restaurant

Some clients may feel there is nothing more impressive than French cuisine, and where better to be wowed than Gemmell’s? The restaurant is a Dana Point favorite among critics and locals alike. The menu features a vast selection of expertly-prepared dishes, including ratatouille, surf and turf, roasted duck, and rack of lamb.

Gen Kai Sushi

Sushi and sashimi is a brilliant choice for a client dinner. Gen Kai Sushi, well known in the OC for being the best sushi SoCal has to offer, has a menu full of sushi, sashimi, and entrees. Order several dishes for the table and try a taste of each. This gives everyone a chance to share and talk, which certainly helps build a good rapport.

Wherever you make your reservation, your dinner is sure to be a success. Beautiful views, open-air patios, flowing wine, and fantastic weather guarantees your clients will have a wonderful time. Knowing that your dinner is sure to impress also takes the pressure off of you. Now you can focus on putting together a top-notch presentation. And sending your clients home in a luxury Dana Point limousine is the icing on an already perfect cake.
