We enjoyed our stay a lot. Fresh scallops, prepared carefully beyond the standard recipe with very friendly service. The atmosphere is a little dusty but authentic.

Great food but even better ocean views from stadium seating. Sunday brunch is exceptional although a bit pricey for Pacifica. A step above Nicks for atmosphere for special occasions.

If you are looking for a true California experience you could do worse than dinner at the Moonraker. Ask for a table overlooking the ocean. You will be treated to wonderful views. The food is average and pricey. You expect to pay higher prices in...More

My husband and I were visiting northern relatives and choose this restaurant for our "goodbye" breakfast. It is situated in a hotel, on the waterfront. There are lots of seats with great views available - but we had one of the best - a window...More

I am usually worried about surf and turf places, mostly because they neither do good surf nor turf. Moonraker proved me wrong. Everything on the table looked delicious or was perfectly cooked. My brussels sprout appetizer was delicious (perfectly charred). Unfortunately, the scallops, while perfect,...More

I only received this message on the 16th, so I'm afraid my response may be late. We only had the regular lunch so I ca't comment on the brunch but I would say based on our visit I don't think you will have a problem except... More
