Half Moon Bay recommendations?

Spending weekend in Half Moon Bay. Found July posts. Any changes/additions/comments? Will have to eat a meal or two with my company so remaining meals have to make up for rubber chicken dinners. Thanks.

The other "musts" at Duarte's (pronounced Do-arts with the accent on the first syllable) are the artichoke and green chile soups (you can get half and half if you ask) and the pies. Reservations are strongly recommended.

If you are in the mood for a casual seafood meal, Ketch Joanne's in Princeton by the Sea, has very good seafood and yummy homemade pies. I would stick to the simpler preparations, however. We ordered a pasta dish and it was a bit heavy on the cream but the fish and chips I had were very well done. The fish very fresh & the scallops sweet. Large slices of pie, finished off the meal. They have hearty breakfasts & lunches also.
Mezza Luna, just north of HMB in Princeton, has great pasta. It's housed in the old Princeton Inn.
Sushi Main Street has excellent sushi -- some of the best in the Bay Area, I think. It's located in downtown HMB on Mill Street, off of Main.
Just in general, though, service at restaurants in Half Moon Bay isn't very good -- even at higher end places like Cetrella and Pasta Moon. I think it's difficult for these restaurants to get good, consistent help.
