As good as my last visit in November 2012

An excellent seafood brunch - excellent value and great seafood. Well worth the trip out of San Francisco and the restaurant overlooks the Pacific coast

Stopped in for breakfast, the food was amazing and very fresh. The view can't be beat! The chef knows what he is doing and the servers really were helpful in selecting the right meal.

The view of the Pacific is stunning. It's as if you could touch the waves. The food is fresh and prepared to perfection. A bit pricey but well worth the splurge for a special occasion.

Stopped in for lunch in this quiet section of Pacifica. The restaurant is attached to a Best Western, but the food and service was anything but mediocre. Most tables have spectacular views of the ocean. The quality of our entrées was top-notch. The fish tacos were some of the best we've tried and the Seafood Louie Salad salad could teach... More

Nothing special other than view. Stay in the bar and just do appetizers. Dinner was so so and expensive. Or Get a burger on the corner and eat on the wall. Same view, better food, save a lot!

Very nice place to have lunch! The views are amazing. Food is above average! Service is excellent. If you like to watch the surfers and the waves while you dine, this is a great place to do it!

Met up with my sister and her family. It was much easier than my niece and I driving out to Gilroy. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were hoping they'd give us a table with a view...and fate was with us. The friendly hostess sat us at a large table with the perfect view of the sunset! Our waiter... More

This restaurant is a bit pricey but the food is really delicious and you can't beat the view. Get there at sunset for drinks. If you can, there is a front row of seats in front of the window facing the ocean, The seats are arranged in horse shoe shape configuration so everyone gets to enjoy the view. Highly recommend....

We had a late flight into the Bay area and got Pacifica late, but Moonraker was open and what a pleasant surprise. We got a table facing the ocean, even tho it was dark, you could see the waves. Tony was our server and he was very pleasant. I ordered the cup of clam chowder & I loved the presentation!... More
