VUE Restaurant Review

: VUE overlooks Dana Point Harbor at its Laguna Cliffs Resort & Spa locale. This contemporary restaurant creates a comfortable vibe with down-to-earth brown tones, black-marble tables, mirrored booths and low lighting. At breakfast, guests may order American-style egg dishes, hearty traditional items, or opt for the buffet. Lunch is full of sandwiches and salads, but there are also burgers, pizza and a New York strip steak. Chef Anton Cossi shines best at dinner, as noted through tempting starters like his creamy lobster risotto with salty olive tapenade and pungent lemon oil. Entrées are just as flavorful and include a tender coffee-crusted rib-eye steak, wild salmon with curry quinoa, and Chilean sea bass with pineapple saffron and artichoke purée. The wine list is a well-chosen mix of the Old and New World. For dessert, don’t miss the chocolate pot de crème and the ginger cake topped with house-made vanilla ice cream. Service is professional, with an experienced maître d’ who also acts as a sommelier.
