Wonderful breakfast buffet with fresh crab, clams, shrimp and your choice of fresh fruit, a vat of dark chocolate for your fruit, great prime rib, a plethora of desserts. Awesome!

Could have been what I ordered, but my meal seemed over price for the small amount of food I ordered. As with many more sophisticated places, the food was elegantly arranged and pleasing to the eye. However, the taste was bland. My scallops were not well-seasoned, did not go well over sweet potatoes, and the portion was small for the... More

Steamers and oysters with a great view. I've been here in the past and love the location. The giant glass windows make it seam as if the waves will come crashing in.

Two birthday-celebrating days spent in Pacifica and two meals enjoyed at the Moonraker. Looking for a quick and light lunch, we popped into the Moonraker because we had heard that their clam chowder was the best. And by golly, we totally agree!!! We added a shared salad and a bowl of lobster bisque to the table and left with the... More

Our meal was absolutely worth the ticket. I had Dungeness crab (snow crab doesn't compare anymore to me!) and my husband had a scrumptious Pork meal. Desert was delicious...some sort of a mousse pie, chocolatey, bit of yummy ice cream, wow. A must go to restaurant for dinner. Service was professional while personable. 10 plus star experience!

This place has an amazing view with booths that are facing the ocean which is yards away. Its on the second floor, so the view is even better. We were staying at the hotel and had some vouchers for breakfast, so that was the only meals we had here, but the food was very good, and the portions were large.... More

Good quality food, great presentation, superb setting looking on the rocky landscape and sea as the sun set. Not the cheapest but still not expensive. Best meal so far on our trip day 5. We are back at the hotel on our last day so will be back again !

The food selection is very limited not friendly to a budget. The view is great, the staff were functional definitely not friendly. Seafood and assorted steaks, out food was expensive and cold. Not my greatest experience.

Good food and service, excellent tables throughout the restaurant, worth the trip. Very romantic, Live music was excellent and suited the mood and ambience, we saw whales with our dinner, exciting, best of all, I enjoy a romantic dinner with my boyfriend.

We drove down the coast in the fog o this wonderful little setting which looks over waves rolling in and crashing on the beach. The food was stunning, the service was fantastic and this made a civilised change from the hustle and bustle of the huge city activity.

Thank Gerry H
