Favorite Sunny Day spot in MalibuI love Moonshadows. I can sit all day in the outdoor booths drinking wine and eating their barbecued octopus. I did not like octopus until I ate it there. On a sunny day there can be a wait for an outdoor table but it is worth the wait. In the late afternoons on the summer weekends a DJ comes and livens up the scene. I love it!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMoonShadows - our favoriteMy Dad and I love going to the beach for dinner. It is our tradition as we both love the ocean. MoonShadows is in a great location to just enjoy the view and good food. The only thing that inhibits that is a server whois too full of himself. Yes, that is Randy or Randall. Didn't even let me finish what I was saying before he left the table. In fact after we ordered drinks he came back saying to me that he was't sure if I wanted olives or onions so brought both. If he had waited to hear the rest of what I said he would have known it was olives. UNACCEPTABLE!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMUnbelieveable ViewJust an exquisitel experience. The bouillaibaisse was delicious beyond belief. Driving down the coast and needed a spot to celebrate half-way home. Moohshadows couldn't have been more perfect and the food was everything you could hope it would be. Everyone at our table was impressed and eager to come back again. After a long day, we really needed something special to punctuate the end of our trip and this was it! I know because my normally reserved husband played Cat Steven's "Moonshadows" on his iPhone much of the way home and I didn't even mind.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingGreat Food and an excellent service. Will definitely come again in a very near future.

Is very attentive and informative. Cool place to go to.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!We've never had a bad experience here. Good food, fantastic view, friendly service.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat viewing the sea no matter wheThe ocean is list up at night so you wont miss out on the waves! I thought it would be too late to view the ocean, but to my surprise it was lit when we got there that night. Awesome place!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic NightOverall experience was awesome, but one minor detail has to be exposed.I had a reservation at 730p, we arrived right on time.You would think because you had a reservation you would'nt have to wait very long.We were asked to take a seat n hang out at the bar.We were offered drink's by a passing waitress but it was a bit dissapointing to have to wait for a table to free up.15 mins later we were called to be seated at a table.When making the reservation I requested a patio table but that was not the case We were seated inside in the middle not even next to the window my original plan was to be close as possible to the scenery.Minor technicalities I guess.Loved the waiter Randy i think was his name very nice and welcoming.Food was great.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite Ocean view restaurant.We don't live near Moonshadows but we go there at least once a year. I always get the Organic Green Farmers Market Risotto, it's amazing! You can hear the ocean waves and dolphin watch, it is so relaxing. The only reason we don't go for dinner is the Risotto is a lunch only item.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe View is the Icing on the CakeTook my octogenarian Mom and Aunt here for a long lunch. The service, food and my bloody mary were all fantastic, not to mention the view and sightings of dolphins and sea lions. My midwest family left so happy.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place!I try to frequent Moonshadows as often as I can. Just recently took my dad there for brunch and it was very pleasant and the food absolutely delicious.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMoonshadowsReally nice meal. Definitely worth going for either lunch or dinner. Service is good and who doesn't like dining with a view overlooking the ocean.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view is really beautifulThis restaurant is very pleasant, the service is very nice, waiters(waitresses) are very pleasant too.
I really recommend the black cod with the green tea rice, you won't be disappointed, this is really good
The portion is not big, you won't be overloaded.
The Creme brulee is very good too.
it is not cheap, expect around $60 per person but it is really good and pleasant with a view on the ocean.
The only small red flag, it is a little bit long to get the orders.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHad doubts following a 30Had doubts following a 30 wait for a pre booked reservation but once seated service and food were excellent.

View was amazing, great crowd, lots of young people who are looking to spend a lot of money and have a great time. wine was also great.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTotal PackageOne would figure after the 20th or so time eating at a restaurants at some point they would disappoint but not Moonshadows! We just brought our two friend and their five year old there and it was amazing. Sasha our waitress was completely accommodating not to mention sweet as can be. The food was impeccable definitely try the cod and then there is the view.
