The view of the ocean was great. Plan to dine during sunset for a spectacular time if the weather is right. The food was quite good- not spectacular and nicely presented. The service, attentive and not overdone. A reasonable value.

Reasonably priced given the impeccable surroundings and quality of food and service. Book a window overlooking the Pacific Ocean. An easy 20 minute drive south of San Francisco central. Thoroughly recommended.

Excellent mixed drinks are half price and oysters are just a dollar each. Breathtaking views right on the water. The Moonraker is fast becoming a local favorite!

I actually feel like almost all peninsula folks turn their noses up at the thoughts of Pacifica in general and as a person who passes through on a regular basis, your are missing some very interesting opportunities. More reviews on them in other posts. Views are killer no matter when you are there; this place is never crowded, parking is... More

We started with a glass of wine and the freshest oysters. Our cocktail waitress was fantastic. The view of the sunset, perfect. We moved on to dinner. We ordered different entrees and we both agreed that we chose winners. Fast and friendly service.

This place has the biggest and bet Sunday brunch I've ever seen. You can have anything from omletts to seafood to roast beef. It's amazing.

We stayed at the Best Western next door and had a dinner and a breakfast here. Each meal was better than expected with great service. The view is awesome as the tables point out towards the ocean. We will be back next time we visit Pacifica.

Yes, I had some of the same thoughts as Joseph and almost did not climb the stairs to the dining room. What a mistake that would have been. This was truly a fine dining experience in every sense of the word. Obviously the view as you sit facing the Pacific waves against the sea wall would be enough for many... More

I was skeptical of this restaurant when it was selected for dinner after a nearby swim meet. After all, restaurants with spectacular views sometime have good food and service, but usually not--since they can sit back and get customers with the view. So, strike one. It's in a hotel; strike two. The hotel is a Best Western (in the US)--not... More
