Awesome views.

Every dinner seat in the house is a spectacular view of the ocean. I had the wild mushroom ravioli and it was super great. Hubby had the seafood cioppino. Service was good.

The atmosphere and food is good...but you come for the view. I suggest making reservations by the window at sunset so you can see an incredible view of the ocean and sunset. This is a good date place since it is quiet and romantic

The dining experience at the Moonraker was extraordinary. In addition to an excellent meal, the live music provided by one talented musician pushed this moment over the top.

Most of my visits have been for cocktails and happy hour fare with the local ladies, and once for dinner with my husband. A little on the pricier side, especially for Pacifica. For Bar Bites, I highly recommend the Ahi Tuna Tartare, and the Duck fat french fries.

The food was okay, the view was nice but VERY sunny. The bill was very high for an average meal but convenient.

I had breakfast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. All tables seemed to face the sea. We sat at a booth that could accommodate 4 easily. Breakfast was a variety of choices. I had the continental breakfast. Price about $10

I looked for a brunch place but decided to come here for a dinner instead, primarily attracted by its large glass panes, through which that you can overlook the stunning ocean view. We had a strategic view point sitting at elevated bar table. If you like mixed drink strong, try Moonraker [$10]. We were having blistered skinned Padrón Peppers [$7.50]... More

This is one of the nicest places in the Bay Area to be able to dine and overlook the Pacific Ocean. Easy access from Interstate 280 over to HWY 1 (just a few miles south from Pacifica). It serves some of the most awesome clam chowder I have ever tasted (on either coast of this country). They reportedly use Manila... More

I wanted to have a special brunch on the coast with my BF and some friends. We came here to the Moonraker for the Sunday Brunch offered every Sunday. There are 2 seatings at 10:30am and 1:00pm. The price is $40 per person. The restaurant closes briefly between seatings. We had a 1:00 seating that gave us till 3:00pm to... More
