    This has been my 3rd visit to Blue Moon. I make it there once or twice a year and each time is a unique dining experience. Food is amazing and so is the service. This is a must if you are in the area during their season.

    We were received very graciously and our table was thoughtfully sprinkled with small, glistening hearts (wedding anniversary). The restaurant is tastefully appointed; customers are somewhat shoe-horned in, as tables are close together. Because of one noisy group close-by, we were a bit disturbed. Perhaps an earlier than 7PM reservation may mitigate the noise quotient. Overall. we had an enjoyable evening...including sharing the Bombe dessert.

    Food was absolutely delicious. Service was friendly. My only complaint was that we were seated right by the door that leads to the bar area, which was quite loud. Kind of took away from the romantic dinner I had wanted for my partner and myself. Other than that everything was top notch!

    Once again, What a WONDERFUL Experience at the Blue Moon... We celebrated Mom's 70th birthday and the staff-from the bar with the amazing cocktails to our server Charles-made their 1st experience there unbelievable! The apts were delightful and tasty-Octopus done perfectly. Dad loved the fresh baked breads. The 2 steaks perfectly done, as was the Rockfish-done PERFECTLY and with out the items as requested. The Lamb was also perfect. The BOMB for dessert was heavenly. Mom and Dad are still talking about how wonderful the Blue Moon was and totally enjoyed themselves.

    Went on a Wednesday night as we took a few days during the week to go to Rehoboth. We always enjoy the Blue Moon, and again this time, the food and service were really good. The problem was the group of eight who were seated behind us. And by eight, I mean four adults and four kids under four years. BAD AMBIANCE. Our reservation was for 7PM, and fortunately the group left at about 7.45 with only a moderate amount of kid noise during the 45 minutes. I know parents like to take their kids out with them, but still when we go out as a couple and drop a couple hundred on a meal and wine, we'd like to do it without the kids.

  • Appalling service, way overpriced
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    My partner made reservations to celebrate my birthday. We were sat at a table in a corner two steps above the main floor. It was cramped and we were forgotten. We watched as a waiter served all the others water often and ignored us. We ordered a bottle of wine which after being poured was placed in a cooler behind us. Other waiters were filling their diners' wine glasses as they got low. We finally gave up and poured the wine ourselves. The food was very good, but not good enough to command such high prices. Other people were celebrating birthdays and the staff brought them dessert with a candle in it. Mine had no candle and no utensils for dessert. Management was ungracious and made excuses. We had better service at Louie's a sub shop.

  • The Seating Is A Bit Akward...

    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We arrived and everything was fine until seated. There is a back area next to the kitchen entrance and bathrooms and service bar.. requested a move to which was initially rejected, then another couple walked out due to seating concerns near front door and we were lucky to nab those seats.. not fun, but better than the back room... but, but, but, but the chef turned out a great meal even for my request of low-fat vegan. Go if you have a special occasion to celebrate with a fine meal and equally so service. Remember to ask for a table in the front rooms unless the aforementioned area is not a problem for you.

    The food was a combination of fusion cooking and odd entree's. There were also steaks on the menu if you wanted to pay high 30's, low 40's. It is the first time I've had corn soup without corn. The soup was emulsified so that there were no solid kernels in the soup, with a lime flavored foam on top which I detested. A chicken dish was cook about four different way where dark meat was combined with white meat, then covered in skin and deep fried. It was laid out on a bed of unrecognizable vegetables and with teaspoon of mash potatoes. Prices were high with things like venison tar tar listed. Won't go back there again and spend almost $30 just for the chicken.

    We have eaten at the Blue Moon 15 times or more over the past few years and loved it. However this last visit Friday was a disaster. The crab cakes (special) were made with scallions which overpowered the crab meat. The soft shell crabs were drenched in cornmeal and were tasteless. There are too many other great restaurants in Rehoboth to waste you money on this one.
