After 26 hours on the planes I drove 13 miles from SFO airport and was astonished. Pacific Coast and great ocean view from Mooraker bar. Unfortunately only bottled beer, but also local brands. Good seafood offering. Fortunately a good stop for the first night on Hwy. 1

Great view from the restaurant to the ocean and if you are lucky you can spot the wales. Excellent food: fish @ meat and professionel staff that serves the drink very quickly. Nice wine list but sparkling wines are quite pricy.

I usually don't write reviews about restaurants, but our experience at Moonrakers was so good I can't help but write one. We had a party of 7 that was really pressed for time due to a flight that evening. We walked in without a reservation around dinner time and the person up-front said they weren't sure if they would be... More

We have been there on several occasions for happy hour -- great view of Pacifica and sunset, interest cocktails, and small plates.

What an unexpected delight! Moonraker has huge ocean-front windows to enjoy the magnificent view; we’ve been here before and this year it was even better! We couldn’t believe what we saw- humpback whales cruising the beach! The whales were easy to spot, just look offshore where the birds are. You’ll see the whales come up for air, as close as... More

Came down from Sacramento without the 3 kids for my birthday and ate at the Moonraker at the recommendation of a friend. Food was excellent. Service was above average. Ocean sunset view and good wine made for an excellent evening.

Awesome, it was foggy but still could see the waves, seals, pelicans and other sea birds, no whales this day but dolphins earlier in the day! Most all tables have a good ocean view. Cocktails good, our dinner very good. The menu had a good selection. Lots of sea food but if you aren't a fan of fish they have... More

Dropping a few bills first thing in the morning is protocol for this pricey dining establishment, but, if it's not an everyday practice, then most won't mind especially if you're a connoisseur of great food. My recommendation would be to try the crab benedict. It's a taste sensation like you've never experienced.
