Terrible waiter who was kind of a jerk. So so food for a lot of money. Not really worth it, to be honest!

Very impressed with the intimate dining experience here. The filet was delicious, service was fast and delightful. If you haven't been here before it's a must for the romantics. Experiencing the waves rolling under you with a fine wine is quite lovely.

Wonderful location for a romantic meal with a rare sea view of the California coast.
Really recommend Moonshadows as a dining lunch place to visit for a casual or special meal.

The food and view were wonderful. Daniel and the entire staff
provided wonderful service. We had scallops and shrimp cocktail for appetizers, free range chicken and tiger shrimp for our entrees
and a banana dessert. (The hot rolls were superb).

We had a lovely time! Very mellow on a Wednesday night -- took some family from out of town so they loved the views, the food was great, attentive service. It's a nicer spot, but we went in jeans and didn't feel underdressed! Might be a little fancier on a weekend evening though!

Bad service. Rude server who was cursing + fighting w the bartender who was nice to us. After being seated, no one checked on us at all. Had to call over a different server. It was my first time there + was so excited but apart from the sunset view, the evening was happily forgettable. First place since being in southern ca where I truly realized hospitality can easily unpracticed.

Service was fabulous. Food was excellent. Price was premium for the surf & turf my husband ordered but overall we were really pleased with the experience. If you want to see the view, for sure book before scheduled sunset.

The waiter and hosts were wonderful - we celebrated her birthday with a table by the windows looking out on the waves and dolphins and a gorgeous sunset! And the birthday cake and candles were a wonderful touch by Moonshadows! Thank you!
