I had a cocktail, glass of wine, salad and an entree and it cost $70 (before tip). I got filet of sole, so nothing overboard. Nice view, but the too pricey for the quality of food.

Wonderful breakfast buffet with fresh crab, clams, shrimp and your choice of fresh fruit, a vat of dark chocolate for your fruit, great prime rib, a plethora of desserts. Awesome!

Two birthday-celebrating days spent in Pacifica and two meals enjoyed at the Moonraker. Looking for a quick and light lunch, we popped into the Moonraker because we had heard that their clam chowder was the best. And by golly, we totally agree!!! We added a...More

Our meal was absolutely worth the ticket. I had Dungeness crab (snow crab doesn't compare anymore to me!) and my husband had a scrumptious Pork meal. Desert was delicious...some sort of a mousse pie, chocolatey, bit of yummy ice cream, wow. A must go to...More
