Whitestone Restaurant & Bar
I love this place!!!! The food and service is always so top notch! The owner makes it so personable by knowing our names and taking special care of the meals we love so much. I highly recommend it! The ambiance is clean and safe during these COVID times. The patio is heated and provides lots of fresh air.
My first time here and I will definitely return. I had the seed crusted salmon which was completely new to me and now my favorite way to eat salmon! My fabulous server, Seth, surprised me with a whiskey cocktail which was perfect for my palate. I'm grateful to this restaurant for having outdoor seating and I felt very safe.
They have an outdoor area with a beautiful fireplace and heaters at every table. We sat outside on a cold evening & it was perfect - amazing atmosphere, service and food. Highly recommend.
We all felt like royalty dining in this fabulous restaurant. The service was wonderful and servers spent the extra time taking pictures, serving cake, and catering to our every need. Very friendly, patient and helpful. Thank you!
My new favorite restaurant in Dana Point.
Impeccable service and amazing menu selection.
I will be back every week for dinner.
This place is freaking awesome. My wife and I went for a date night on New Years Eve. The food is incredible. We shared the Roasted Artichoke appetizer, my wife got the Filet Mignon and I got the Chilean Sea Bass, and we shared the Brown Butter Cake for dessert. The staff is incredibly friendly and the service is outstanding. We love this place, highly-recommend and will definitely be back.
Perfect! Food was just amazing! The staff couldn’t have given us a better experience on NYE!
Inside& Outside seating, THANK GOD.
Thank you for being OPEN on this evening. We had a table next to the window on PCH. I never felt unsafe, tables were far away. The food, the wine, the ambiance was great. I was with my 2 daughters...amazing dinner, memorable...
First time for us. Found online when looking for a restaurant open at the beach. Waiter bartender and owner and manager were all so attentive. Good was delicious! His mad said it was the best fish and chips he ever had and we’ve eaten it in England! All our party said it was one of the most memorable restaurant experiences they’ve had. If there were 10 stars we’d give them to Whitehouse!
Nice place. Very classy and elegant. The matter “D” was very accommodating and friendly. Nice place. Very pleasant experience!
A fabulous neighborhood gem! Cocktails are unique and fun, food is excellent. Very nice wine list.
Server was a bit pushy and clearly wanted us to hurry up.
Excellent service, great hospitality from management and wonderful food. Can’t wit to get back.
Whitestone has found a way to accommodate the dining mandates so guests are comfortable and safe. The patio is nicely heated. Food, as always, is still delicious.
The wild boar sausage was excellent and the table by the outdoor fireplace was great. The chicken tikka Masala was tasty, but for the price, some vegetables on the side or underneath would be nice. Wines were excellent choices.
Our anniversary meal at Whitestone was excellent. The chefs are creative and capable and the food, drinks and dessert were very enjoyable.
Delicious food! Everything was cooked perfectly. Kudos to the kitchen!! The server was a little scattered and we ended up not ordering dessert because he never came back to take the order. Overall is was a great experience and we would definitely go back.
We always enjoy this Resturant. Consistently delicious, always friendly!
What an amazing place. The food was incredible, service attentive, and the ambience was perfect. Everyone was social distanced and they had a beautiful outdoor area next to the fireplace.
Saw Whitestone in my feed and thought it looked interesting. The restaurant is in a nice space and we started the evening sitting well away from other tables. However they then proceeded to seat a party of eight in the middle of the empty space, putting them too close to both our table and others. In addition the hostess was wearing a completely useless device instead of a mask- sort of like a short, upside down face shield which would not protect her or anyone else.
The food was not bad. Our favorite dish may have been the burrata appetizer. The 86 burger was also tasty. The cocktails however were terrible. We tried three different ones and all were very light and watered down with no flavor. I would stick with wine.
Overall not an experience we will be repeating.
Unique dishes with a good variety. Food is delicious! The 2 times we've been here the service has been excellent. Very attentive and kind. Highly recommend!
Glad they expanded their menu with some staples. The food is excellent but a little heavy with sauce. Patio is really nice!
Always a Wonderful time! Great food and atmosphere.
Amazing food and very entertaining staff, loved our experience!
Food has been better in prior visits, so was somewhat disappointed this time around. Was also slightly disappointed with the lack of mask from our waiter when seating us and first few visits to the table, then just an ineffectual lip shield for subsequent visits. I didn't leave because of it but it does discourage me from coming back soon.
Good food, great atmosphere and always has cool menu.
Fantastic in every way! Looking forward to bringing more family and friends!
Such a wonderful dinner and the service was wonderful too! We loved all of the dishes we tried and the lamb with pomegranate sauce was amazing! We will definitely be back again!
We ordered the Chilean sea bass, scallops and grits as our main course, mushroom in foil as the side and octopus was our appetizer. Overall everything was very good, a bit of a different flair that was a little rich with the sauces they incorporated however we enjoyed our meal along with the nice ambiance and setting. Service was satisfactory.
The Good: The seating was great, overlooking the street, the weather was beautiful. I liked the transparent masks, although reminded me a little of what dentists wear. My steak was very good, cooked the way I ordered and not overly salted. Flavors of the rest was good.
The Not so Good: I was dining with my 18 year old daughter. The server nearly completely ignored her. He took my drink order (a glass of wine) and left. We ordered my daughter's drink from the bus boy. When the server realized his mistake he apologized to me, something like "oops, I forgot to take her order," but not to her. We explained she is vegan and he recommended the carrot tacos with no cheese - good suggestion but cheese came with it. She ate it anyway. He asked how things were - again, just to me and didn't look at her at all. Half way through my meal, I could have used another glass of wine, but he never asked. It took way too long to bring our check. He didn't seem overly busy - he was definitely spending time at other tables. It was weird.
Everything was really great and I recommend this restaurant to everyone!
Sat outside on the patio. Service was horrible, had to ask multiple times for the wait staff to take care of us. I wouldn't go back.
The restaurant was empty, that should have given us a clue. The waitress was pleasant and welcoming. When I asked her what her favorite thing on the menu was she informed us it was her second day on the job— second clue. The host then informed us we were going to have the best meal of our lives. Well, we ordered the Spanish octopus appetizer that was so tough and tasteless, it was almost funny after the host comment. My husband ordered the fish special which he believes the fish was frozen not fresh and really couldn’t determine what the other food was on his plate. I ordered the lamb ragu which has no flavor other than the salt that it was covered in. I’m sorry I know restaurants are struggling during COVID but this was so bad, I had to let other people know.
Staff super nice but service was slightly slow based on number of guest. Had the chicken and my husband the steak - was a bit dry. Cheese board and burrata were great!
Must have changed owners recently because it’s just not the same as it used to be.
Interesting menu. Delicious flavors, a very fun and relaxing dining experience. Will definitely return!
Great creative cuisine and good variety on the menu for all tastes and restrictions
I think this restaurant has potential but the food is poor at best. We ordered the bread and butter as an appetizer for $7.00 and it should have been included in the meal. We thought there was something special about the bread and butter, but it was just bread with butter.
The short ribs seemed like my home crock pot dinner, nothing special. We also had the 90 day burger. It was decent but would have expected more from a restaurant like this.
For desert we ordered the butter cake. The cake looked like someone smashed it together and put it on a plate. They also added a small portion of ice cream, very small portion.
Not sure where all the 4 star reviews came from but all in all not a restaurant we would return to.
Seems like they are trying to make as much money as they can by cutting as many corners as they can.
My husband and I love this restaurant, We can always count on finding something unique and delicious here. Their grilled peach burrata and carrot tacos were amazing!
