We went to Moonshadows for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant felt a little crowded and loud but the service was excellent and attentive and the food was fabulous. The views are amazing - not a bad table in the house. The best New England style...More

We stopped here from LAX on the way to Ojai. It was a beautiful setting with great food. Loved the Ahi tuna and tuna burgers. Wait staff was friendly and nice but our food was a little slow coming out.

The food, drinks and atmosphere were absolutely fantastic . Our server was a little off putting but other than that we will certainly be back next time we visit California and drive up the coast!

We were seated promptly with our open table reservation. Menu and portions were adequate and the service was great. Entrees were good but nothing outstanding.

We walked to Moonshadows from our rental condo to the south. The place always seemed full, so we thought it would be good. My sister tried the burger and said it was the best she ever had.

Enjoyed an al fresco lunch here with some friends on a Monday afternoon. Valet parking right at the restaurant ($4) but we parked about 100 yards west on the PCH and walked. Seated immediately in a comfortable booth overlooking the water. The ambiance and view...More

The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some
areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern
Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football
field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted

Oceanside restaurant with breathtaking panoramic views for romantic dining. Our chic nightspot. Serenades by live DJs spinning hot tracks nightly in the Blue Lounge, brims with a vogue, Hollywood-meets-Malibu crowd, indulging in a tranquil, yet hip vibe.
