This is in the Costa Mesa mall and a typical Wahoos taco. I like the tacos and will come back. Nothing crazy but your typical Wahoo's fish taco.

We had a group of 11 and everyone found something to enjoy. Several of us had the bowls with rice and chicken, some had the tacos and one had the chicken soup. Not a lot of flavor in the bowls - definitely need to add hot sauce or other sauce, but it was fresh and a generous portion. Chips and... More

I have eaten at this restaurant weekly for the last four years and find the service extremely efficient and friendly. All the food is exceptional but I have the same meal every time I go. The strips of beef with crunchy noodles and the most amazing cilantro dressing. The atmosphere is always good and the decor is fabulous. They have... More

This is good choice if you are in the mood for fast food, but want something other than burgers and fries or pizza. Great variety of menu items and their fish tacos are pretty darn good.

Great menu and service. I enjoyed a salmon dish with rice and salad which was substantial. I have no idea where a mate put his humungous sized burrito which did take some time to devour however I suspect that this size would be OK with some.

Wahoo's has a couple of So Cal locations. Food is fresh and healthy. Wild caught fish is used - various types, and the salmon is a special treat. Atmosphere is surfer casual with stickers on the walls, etc. Consistently good fast casual restaurant.

Food is actually quite good; service attentive, staff seems to care if your order was correctly prepared and if you are enjoying the experience. Acoustics leave a lot to be desired - unless you love high decibels

Craving the real thing? Wahoo's consistently delivers fresh and seemingly healthy fish tacos and assorted plates. Best food in this price range. I'm a return customer. Go for the food, nothing more. Easy parking.
