The Moonstone Grill is in a fabulous location with an unbeatable ocean view. It's well placed bar is a superb place to meet people, enjoy a cocktail ( and maybe appetizers) and watch the sunset. It is truly beautiful and shouldn't be missed. Sadly, however, the food is nothing special and fairly pricey. So enjoy the beauty; indulge in a... More

Seafood was fresh and well-prepared and we had a great, very knowledgeable and helpful server. Location is right on the beach and is beautiful, but you are paying a lot for location.

Nothing bad happened and the overall experience was OK, but there wasn't any WOW! factor, at least not for us that particular night. But the location is terrific and the beach/ocean views are beautiful.

Pretty good upscale dining right on the beach. Sunset visit is great. Ahi tuna was very good, filet mignon also fine. If it's Moonstone or Larrupin in Trinidad, pick Larrupin.

Pleasantly surprised by a cozy local spot with fantastic beach views, good wine selection and a great menu! Crab cake, tuna, lamb and dessert were all very tasty. Only thing I would have liked to see to make it a 5? We were celebrating a birthday, and no one said anything (after checking ID's) until we asked for a candle... More

As a local, I would have to say this is the best restaurant view in Humboldt County. Come about an hour before sunset and you will not be disappointed as your dining experience carries over into the sunset. We enjoyed the halibut and big-eye tuna with the scallops as an appetizer. All of these were very good, borderline excellent. Pricey,... More

Best martini ever. Try their Happy Hour at the bar, with the sun setting over Moonstone Beach — always special.
