    The Burrata and Heirloom tomatoes are awesome, as is the Pumpkin tortellini with sage/butter sauce.

    Opened 1972. Pricey ocean front restaurant. Its exterior remains the same, but its interior was remodeled in 2012.

    Great food and drinks. The view is amazing. The Sea Bass was cooked perfectly. This will be a great place for a date night with my wife next time we're in town.

    Amazing views as right on the beach. Pear and Lime martinis are excellent. For starters get the calamari, octopus, scallops

    The Chilean Sea-Bass isn't always on the the menu, however if you ask your server they may just be able to make something happen! #sweetpotatosauce

    I've been here 4 times and each time, the view is wonderful, the service is great, but the food is absolutely horrendous. I come back hoping for a change, but sadly it hasn't.

    The deck is nice (and usually packed). Grab a seat on the rail behind the bar (outside)for a more intimate sea view.

    Mel Gibson partied at this Malibu landmark with fans just before he was arrested in 2006 and went on his infamous rant against the police that pulled him over for a DUI.

    had crab cakes, salmon, and apple pie. All were just average. Go for the ambiance. The outdoor deck overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Reserve a cabana or just chill on their beds. Very sexy!

    Sit outside if you can, tuna sashimi, oysters, miso black cod (amazing) and bouillabaisse all well worth trying....

    I've dined in booths or on daybeds in the patio lounge area several times and I've always amazing service. The night-time ambiance in the lounge is very sexy!

    The views are breathtaking and the fresh seafood a delight (especially when enjoyed al fresco). We dig the laidback vibes, too. For families, try lunch as it becomes a "grown up" spot in the evenings. Read more

    The view alone will get you hooked and the food is pretty good as well. And, as always, there is plenty of premium alcohol to choose from. Read more

    Where brit brit and mel gibson get into trouble, this is also a really cute and fun spot when you don't feel like going out to Hollywood on Friday or Saturday nights.

    There’s a DJ Thurs-Sat. Try the spicy Hawaiian ahi tuna tartare and the Dungeness crab ravioli. They don't serve blue fin tuna, Chilean sea bass and black grouper to help repopulate these fish Read more

    Was not too impressed with DJ on a saturday night. Music was way too mellow and way to soft...........felt like a sleepy lounge than anything else. Did not feel the vibrant mood I was expecting.

    Amazing food and views - tuna tartar is yum! As are the drinks. Perfect sunday evening spot. Sit outside, bring a sweater.

    We had lunch at the Moonshadow. The food was wonderful (go for the tuna tatar) and the staff, contrary to other comments, was very friendly and professional. We watched dolphins while eating!

    An off menu item that is amazing is the ribeye steak with a balsalmic reduction. Its a thick cut.

    Well sadly the service sucks, and our food was cold. It took 20 minutes to get a refill on coffee. Of course the view is spectacular.

    Arrange for seating outside, have a glass of wine and a Kobe burger! On weekends the dj spins the best chill music...

    when it's warm out, Moonshadows has a DJ on the outside deck on Saturdays and Sundays...take a date, go with friends, everyone shares the beds and the crowd is usually super friendly...if not, buy you
