  • "Went for a birthday celebration with a small group. Best place, surprised I haven't been here sooner. Ambience of sitting outside practically on water was awesome. Views breathtaking. Food and service outstanding. Can't wait to go back really soon!"

  • "Sat outdoors on a beautiful evening with friends. Service was inconsistent. Food was brought timely, but had to ask for water, knife, forgot to bring coffee, servers were young and a bit inexperienced, but likable. Food was good - but appetizers were expensive for the portion sizes."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner but were very disappointed the your fish is farm raised and not wild caught. This limited us to your meat selections which was a serious disappointment to our whole party."

  • "No need to drive to the shore when you can sit and watch this incredible view, eat varied apetizers in a non air conditioned space! Yes it is summer."

  • "Have dined here numerous times. This past visit was for brunch. Had the egg white frittata and my friend had the lobster roll. We both enjoyed our meal and the mimosas! Service was good- attentive and not rushed. View is to die for! Only negative is their brunch bread basket. It was awful especially knowing the bread at dinner is a winner."

  • "I was disappointed that we were not able to sit outside. I made my reservation a week in advance, and requested outside. They told me it was on a first come , first serve basis, and I should get there 15 minutes before my reservation. We got there 30 minutes before, and we were told it would be at least an hour and a half wait for outside. Very disappointing! The food was ok, and we could have gone anywhere and gotten a better meal, but the scenic aspect was why we went there. Sadly, we weren't able to enjoy the scenery. Don't think we will be going back there anytime soon."

  • "The night was perfect! We had an early reservation and sat at the outdoor bar for about an hour while we waited for an outdoor table. The food was very, very good. There were six of us and not everyone had fish. The views were amazing. The only drawback was our waitress was quite slow, but other staff pitched in when we mentioned we had been waiting a very long time for our wine. I will go again!"

  • "Food was decent. Can't beat the view. We arrived at 7:30 for an 8 reservation in order to request an outside table. I booked on open table and the restaurant notes say they will not reserve outside tables you have to request upon arrival. The hostess told us it was a 45 min wait. Turned out to be about an hour and a half. I wish they would take outside reservations"

  • "Loved our dinner. The Montauk Seafood Platter was delicious and the servings very generous. The service was great. We were not rushed and were able to enjoy a great dinner and spectacular sunset."

  • "A return visit to Half Moon did not disappoint. We split a burger and a lobster roll, as we both wanted both items. Delish and well prepared. Tasty french fries. A wonderful light breeze in the outdoor dining area made for a special treat. Almost TOO much checking in by waitstaff, then a bit of a challenge to flag them down AND get our check. But we enjoy returning regularly, esp in the summer."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We found the view great as was the service. The lobster was overcooked and the chowder heavy. The tuna was overwhelmed by the sauce. The meat eaters had a better time of it."

  • "Yet another delicious meal at Half Moon. Even though it was such a stormy night, my boyfriend and I had a nice night talking and enjoying the amazing food and what would have been a beautiful sight had it not been pouring. Always a lovely feel at Half Moon and the service is great!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "I thought the food and service were quite good and of the ambience is beautiful; however, the one complaint I have is with the dessert. They were only fair. I ordered the risotto pudding (rice pudding) and it was like rice soup. Also, my husband ordered the root bear float for dessert ($7.00) and it was a half glass of root beer with not even a full scoop of ice cream. For that money give a couple of scoops of ice cream and fill the glass. I don't care how wonderful saranac root beer is."

  • "Had dinner on this past Saturday night at half moon. We had reservations however, a table open up outside. This was the bar menu. We ordered drinks and apps which came out in a reasonable amount of time. Never came back to ask for Our salads came with our dinners. Which was very delayed There was over an hour appetizers and entrees. When the entrees came the steaks were overcooked and cold. Our waitress offered to warm up over cooked steaks. She acted as if she could not be bothered with us. We ate the cold steaks and left. Salads were good, sweet potato fries were cold. The restaurant is in a beautiful location... would not do dinner here again... maybe just drinks."

  • "I met a beautiful woman at a table with a river view. Even though she was the attraction service was attentive but not hovering. Wine list was varied and affordable-didn't expect that!!! Only downer was the AC vent chilling our feet. You have a special spot, great food and with an option of sitting for a drink ON the river bank you are right up there with the Hat place up river. BE"

  • "I feel that people with canes or handicap should not have to walk so much to be seated outside to dine.Please work on this for the future. otherwise your food and service was great.Thank You"

  • "You have to know what you're going there for -the view and atmosphere. It's pricey for what you get - but you're paying for the experience & that was lovely."

  • "I had a salad here before and it was huge. THIS time however the same salad (mango, goat cheese, arugala) was like 1/2 the size for the same amount. This alone would keep me from returning."

    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "My only complaint is that I had put in the Open Table reservation that it was a birthday celebration - no one acknowledged the birthday at the restaurant. In the past, when I have put a request in the Open Table comments section when making a reservation, the restaurant has done something to recognize the birthday - ie a candle in the dessert - we ordered dessert and there was still no recognition of the birthday - disappointing"

  • "My fiancé and I have frequented half moon before and enjoyed fabulous meals. We arrived for our 8:30 reservation on time and were seated promptly. We were notified that we would have 2 waiters when we sat. We sat with our menu closed waiting to place our order for a good 15-20 minutes when the second of the 2 waiters came over and rudely said "the kitchen closes in 10 minutes so can you order?" We ordered and he grabbed the menus from us and quickly walked away. No "hello", no "are you ready to order"(which we were). Rude, abrupt, and arrogant. Well, that set the tone for the rest of the evening. We had been ready to order and also had a reservation. Don't take reservations if you are going to be rude and rush your patrons out."

  • "I have always had a wonderful dining experience that is why I go back. The atmosphere is great and so is the food. So nice to celebrate special occasions there. My only problem was selecting a good dry Pinot Grigio while sitting at the bar. Not much of a choice for a reasonably priced glass of wine. One of the selections was almost bitter as if it wasn't good."

  • "We reserved a table for 12 a month in advance for a 70th bday party celebration. I reconfirmed a couple of times leading up to the date including two days before calling and ordering a chocolate bday cake from them. We requested a table outside. But were forced to sit inside on a beautiful day. Then some guy came by and lowered all the shades so that the windows we were seated next to were covered up! We told him we wanted the shades up so at least we had a view of where we would have been seated. Four people at our table sent back their food due to the taste, nontaste or suspicions that it was out of a can and microwaved. Wrong bottle of champagne was brought over and almost opened! Cake order was incorrect and we got vanilla instead!:("

  • "The last couple of visits weren't as good, but they seemed to go back to their amazing lobster rolls and ...Delish!!! Guac and salsa could easily be passed up since they weren't great."

  • "Great place to enjoy the sun and water views. Brunch on the patio is a nice way to enjoy outside. Brunch menu is a little of everything. Inside is spacious and the large windows let you enjoy the views from anywhere you sit. Food is tasty and so are the specialty cocktails."

  • "we were happy with everything about the restaurant. the view is beautiful and the restaurant has taken wonderful advantage of it. the servers, though not professional, were trying hard and were well trained. They were very personable as well. Our only complaint was that the chef used too much oil. This was true of our clam appetizer as well as the 2 fish dishes that we ordered. This made what would have been a near perfect dinner a bit less so."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I usually love this place and most of the waitstaff is excellent but reservations are not honored and the hostesses make promises they don't come close to keeping. It took 45 minutes to get to even speak to a manager. The food is very good but there are many really good restaurants in the area that treat their customers , like customer Do not go there!!!!"

  • "This was july 4th. We have eaten here before and loved it! The restaurant must have over-committed themselves. I have not known the service to be a problem. Once we sat, we were not approached by a single server for at least 15 minutes, and this was after getting up to ask. Service continued to be poor with drinks not arriving before the meal, water not being refilled, etc. The food was outstanding though. All specials were fresh and the presentation beautiful. I hope this service was unusual due to it being a holiday."

  • "I got married in this restaurant. The lady who assisted me with the event was very kind and attentive. My husband and I decided to come back every year for our anniversary. We did the first year, and a nice waitress helped and wrote "Happy Anniversary" on the dessert. It made it more especial. This past anniversary, the waitress was also kind. But, we did not get such a nice surprise because I think we should be more careful to let them know in my reservation. Half moon is a especial place for us. And, hope it keeps that way."
