We have been here a few times when visiting family in Pacifica. The restaurant is beautiful then food is excellent, We enjoyed the piano playing while we dine. we love the view and a nice walk around the area after we eat. It is a lovely place.

we have been going to the miramar for about 20 years and watched them go from local spot to larger tourist attraction...the food is good and the location is great...2 days ago we went in and i made the mistake of telling the hostess we just wanted dessert...she told us we could not sit in the dining room even though there was 10 empty tables...we sat at the bar and the bartender ignored us so we left...so,get in spend lots of money and get out...or...there are many other restaurants in the area.

A beach water front Pacific view to go with your dinner w/ the company of loved ones. That's what we did on Mon (9/7/09 Labor Day actually) at Miramar Beach Restaurant in Half Moon Bay, CA. Honestly I rate 3.5 stars =)
LOCATION: Off of Magellan Ave fr Hwy 1. Magellan Ave ends @ Mirada Rd, where Miramar Beach Restaurant is...u won't miss it.
CUST SVC: Excellent! We RSVP for 6pm, but was ready to be seated immediately although we arrived just after 5pm. Warmly greeted by Hostess, & continuous excellent service w/ our waiter-Peter. Peter was thorough, polite, patient, helpful, & did a great job covering our table & others. Keep up the good work team!
RESTAURANT: I'll be upfront, it doesn't do a whole lot for visual stimulation on the outside appearance, but ok. Spacious & clean interior w/ plenty of 2-seater & 4-seater tables w/ armless chairs, bar area, window views, & well ventilated. Outdoor patio is practically other half of the restaurant located in the back with plenty of various seating options w/ arm chairs, bar area, firepits, & heating lamps. We chose to dine outside closest to the water front. RSVP only for indoor dinning; outside dinning u pick ur seat if anything avail.
COCKTAILS: BF-J had Adios Long Island (which he rated 3/5 starts) & I had my ""alcohol-light-weight-special"" Chambord Sour. My Chambord Sour did its job...a simple light cocktail for dinner.
APPS: We shared the Popcorn Shrimp which really pretty good. Nice, light, yet crunchy batter on flavorful shrimp accented w/ ur choice of tartar sauce or cocktail sauce. Seafood Chowderwas good, but nothing over the top. The Seafood Margarita was tasty, chunky, fresh, & plentiful...actually, we had to ask for more chips *tee-hee*.
ENTREES: I had the Coconut Prawns, which for some reason appears as ""Red Curry Prawns"" online. This dish definitely has the spiciness & not recommended for those who can't handle too many spices. I enjoyed it tho; fresh seafood & thick curry sauce...I could've used more rice (then again I always can do more rice). BF had Seafood Paella which was plentiful w/ fresh seafood & definitely good. BF & I quite satisfied =) Dad settled for the NY Steak since prime rib wasn't on the menu; it was ok, nothing special here. Mom had the Dungeness Crab Cakes, which she really enjoyed. Btw parental units, mom came out more satisfied w/ entree selection.
DESSERTS: BF & mom shared the Apple Pie a'la mode which they cleaned up pretty good, so guessing it was ok; they didn't talk much while eatting. Now me, I flippin' LOOOVED my Tiramisu. They did it complete justice...soft, sweet, creamy, & enhanced w/ raspberry sauce on plate. OMG, this gets my SCRUM-DIDLY-UMPTOUS stamp!
FINAL SUNSET: Our final dinner tab came to $219.50 that covered 3 cocktails, 2 apps, 1cup & 1bowl chowder, 4 entrees, & 2 desserts. Overall Half Moon Bay offers a great restaurant with Miramar Beach Restaurant. The meals are a bit overpriced, but the extra ""price tags"" are for the views...great cust svc, great food, ok cocktails, & excellent sunset views.

I have dined here a number of times and the meals were very good. It's right on the water so you have a great view and the ambiance is great. The building used to be a brothel so the place is filled with historical pictures and info. It's a bit pricey but it is a very nice restaurant and I would recommend it to anyone.

Great location. Neat dining room and the food was good. It was expensive. Our waiter was very slow and it was hard to get his attention. The people next to us sent all of their food back and ordered something different. Maybe... we'll give it a second try.
