“Excellent!”

Good Choice Sushi by the Sea
Ranked #61 of 147 Restaurants in Dana Point
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 January 2018

My wife and I were on our way to Ensenada and decided to stopover in Dana Point to break up the long drive. Due to traffic on Interstate 5, we arrived after 8:00. Sushi by the Sea was within walking distance to our hotel so we took the opportunity to stop in. We ordered the Poki Tacos and they were wonderful. We also ordered the jumbo scallop special and were transported to a little bit of Sushi heaven. I ordered the Salmon Teriyaki and it also was delicious. We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we stopped in again on our return to Northern California. My wife said that her only regret was that we didn't live closer to the restaurant. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves fresh seafood.

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel without reservation. They sat us at the bar, which faces ocean! We ordered few appetizers, sushi, two beers and a drink, which were all yummy. The cost for the dinner was extremely reasonable. We'd go back there if we are in Dana Point again!

We are locals and this has become our go-to sushi restaurant. The food and service have been consistently good. The location is great. On Pacific Coast Highway just across from the beach, you can see the ocean from virtually every table in the place. There's outdoor seating as well. People often come to watch the sunsets over dinner. The restaurant is small (so it may be difficult for larger parties), but so far we have not had difficulty getting a table for 2-4 people. There is parking in the back, but if it's full, there's parking on the street as well. Be sure to ask for any daily specials. You can also order food to go, and walk to the beach for lunch or dinner.

Good Choice sushi by the Sea is located in a small strip of bars and restaurants on PCH in Dana Point. Good Choice has two chefs from Japan who are true artists. The sashimi was so fresh and delicious. We also tried the Sumo roll (husband's favorite), Samurai Roll, and Poke salad- which I could probably eat on a daily basis. Inside, there is seating at the sushi bar, a few cafe tables, or a high top bar with an ocean view. There is also outdoor patio seating, which seemed quite popular. The prices were quite reasonable. For about $100. we had 2 orders of sashimi, poke salad, sumo sushi rito, umibe roll, samurai roll, a custom roll, and 3 Kirins. Many locals popped in for to go orders. They also had rice bowls (donburi), teriyaki, soups, and tempura on the menu. We will absolutely eat here again!

This was a last minute, "we're hungry where should we go," stop. It was well worth it! Poke was delicious and everything was so fresh and tasty!
