Came here May 2017 with three others. Our server Eric was pretty attentive. We all started with a cup of the seafood stew, which was very good. Would order again. I had the softshell blt sandwich, which did sound a lot better in the description. It was okay but not something I would order there again. Was tired and ordered... More

The kitchen brings local and organic offerings that change daily! We had the mussels, mixed greens salad, cheeseburger, and vegan cauliflower "steak". Bread at the beginning was fresh and came with two dips, and there was even an "a mouse bouche" from the chef which was delicious! Friendly and fast service from our server Raye! Highly recommended if you're looking... More

I was looking for a unique restaurant with a chef who is on the cutting edge, and The Shark is that place. My wife, sometimes slow to embrace the unusual, was delighted with her meal. Eccentric entrées, unforeseen combinations, all cooked to perfection. A well-stocked bar, attentive staff, and very pleasant atmosphere all added to the dining experience. We would... More

Crab cakes were fresh but lacked fresh crab taste maybe because the small amount of filler had an unusual herb flavor. The restaurant has mostly locally caught fish except for their fresh shrimp. The menu tells you where the ingredients are obtained when locally grown. French fries were crispy the way I like them. Wait staff was great. View of... More

We were looking for seafood other than the usual OC fare. Reviews brought us to Shark on the Harbor. The server was well versed in the menu selections and had a nice view of the inlet. This restaurant is a farm to table place where the farm is also the ocean and local waters. More than enough selection for almost... More

Took a group of 8 here during restaurant week. Everyone loved their meal and there were several who seriously considered licking their dishes clean if we weren't in public! We had to wait because we didn't have reservations, but even the waiting was fun with unique cocktails and an extensive wine list. Love the local sourcing. This was my third... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal of mahi tuna. Hubby ordered sea bass. Both were delicious. Presentation was beautiful! We also had the "wine flight" which comes with a dramatic presentation! Very nice!
