    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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

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

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

    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.
