Diner Reviews
  • "The experience was better than I had remembered. Hadn't dined there in over ten years. Food was fresh, staff very attentive. A dining gem on the Hudson River"
    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"

  • "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!!!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I just love this restaurant! I brought the girls for an early dinner, and it was just a wonderful experience. Great good, good ambiance, and lovely views!! Would will back with a date!"

  • "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."

  • "Half Moon is contemporary and elegant. The setting is intimate and the views are spectacular!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "On a beautiful night, if you want to sit outside, there is no better place to be than this. The food is always very good and the servers pay so much attention to detail. I have gone here just for drinks and appetizers, causual meals and romantic dinners. It's all good!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "There is always something on the menu that would please everyone in a large group. Food was well prepared, but a bit expensive for comparable dishes at other fine restaurants."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Three long-time friends met for a reunion dinner which we annually plan to coincide with our mutual birthdays. The seating of our table was as I had requested indoors by the window. The servers were friendly and helpful. The food we selected was delicious. We were pleasantly surprised by the presentation of a dessert with candle in honor of our birthdays which indicates that the staff read my note in my OpenTable reservation."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We went on a stormy night for my husband's birthday, but the view of the Hudson was still lovely. If I had to complain I thought the service was a little quick ( not many people there) and we sat over air conditoning vents in the floor, that they had put cardboard over, but it was still cold on the feet."

  • "Went for a girls night out during the week. Setting is absolutely beautiful and relaxing on of the best outdoor dining spots in NY food was awesome had all small plates - duck tacos were the best! Only negatives - wines by the glass were limited, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio house wines were fair to poor, disappointed :( BUT the service was the worst as far as time- soo slow we ordered @ 8 pm and weren't served anything until @ 9:30 dinner lasted until 10:45. Great company so it didn't really matter except we were sooo hungry and it got later and later, seemed to be confusion on who our waiter was. Also, skip the rice pudding for dessert it was like soup, waiter was kind and took it off the menu. Overall, view outweighed slow service"

  • "This is not the first time I have been to Half Moon, however, somehow I had forgotten about it. The outdoor dining area is on the far side of the restaurant so you walk almost all the way around to get to your table - and if you need to use the rest room, well... The service is quick, too quick. They are in a rush to get you seated, fed and out the door. I had barely finished my last bite, when they were taking the plate. And, while the view is lovely, the food is not. Which considering that they are associated with Harvest on Hudson, which has superior food, this was a huge let down. Overall, I will try and remember, I've been there and done that. No more Half Moon for me."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Fabulous setting beside the Hudson River: great views of the Palisades, the Tappan Zee to the north and the city skyline to the south. But the food is "sketchy," in fact, the whole menu could use a revamp. Should be THE go-to destination, but -- for example -- even the pastrami sandwich was inedible."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Make sure you come on a nice day and wait for outdoor seating at one of the patios. You will have a perfect view of the Hudson."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "My family and I have had dinner at Half Moon twice - one in December and once in June. Clearly the crowds come for Summer Sunsets - and the kitchen staff is clearly overwhelmed by the onslaught. Dishes that were carefully prepared in December were overcooked, overdressed and not the best reflection on the menu in June. The decor is tired and the ceiling in particular (hard to miss) looks like it's ready for a facelift. The wait staff, while taxed, did a good job attending to our table."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "This was out first time to Half Moon, but it will not be our last. Our table was only feet from the water and we had a spectacular view of the sunset. The food was delicious and the staff was fantastic!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We celebrated 3 graduations and 3 birthdays at this scenic destination. It was all about the scenery but the food was quite good too!!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The polenta was NASTY! I told that to waiter who was not sure what it was."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Food is just average, service is severely lacking. If you're looking for great water views, this is the place to be. Almost makes up for the negatives."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The view was amazing and relaxing. The restaurant was also attractive. The food was good. The service was excellent. I will go again for special occasions."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Go for brunch or lunch or early dinner in the Summer, you are paying for and enjoying the view! Fish dishes are great. Excellent Lobster Roll."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Went with the girls and had a delicious Summer time lunch...service was great, food was fresh and delicious and the view of the Hudson was spectacular. There was plenty of parking right next to the outdoor space which made it easy for folks to walk right in. NO complaints, no problems. I LOVED IT! Sad to see the old Chart House gone, but this REALLY makes up for it. Besides, the Chart House was a stuffier atmosphere...this was more casual and laid-back while holding onto the sophistication that the CH had. The only reason I say the level of noise is energetic is because we were originally seated near speakers, but the hostess was very accommodating and let me pick a table that was farther away so my guests and I could chat."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The location of this restaurant is superb. The dining experience however, not great. No attention to presentation, cold fries, low quality food and very sporadic service."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Waiting for our table and enjoying the view was the best part of the experience. They seated us at a table above an air conditioner vent blowing full blast. They put a table cloth over it to try to make it more comfortable but never bothered to tell us before we were seated. So I was freezing and trying not to move as to avoid moving the tablecloth. The woman at the next table was dealing with the same issue. Ordered the halibut special. Was undercooked and slimy. My husband ordered a cocktail that was made wrong. When we told the waiter, his response was to tell us they we were unclear on how the drink was made. It's so unfortunate that this beautiful restaurant doesn't have the service or food to match up with the scenery."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Ambience was spot on for a casual sunset dinner. Mussels and fries were an unexpected treat. save a piece of bread to get every last ounce of sauce. Yum!!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The restaurant and it's view are beautiful. The menu and food were uninspiring, and a bit overpriced, even by westchester standards. Still, the food was fine, service was good and atmosphere festive. It was a good spot for a graduation celebration with my family."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Always great food, can't beat the view. Outdoors bar now that the weather is nice."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Service was very slow. Food kept being brought to a different table behind me."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "To begin with, the weather was optimum for outdoor dining and that accounts for half the pleasure. The food, ambiance and leisure atmosphere were excellent, if the service was a mite slow. All in all a great day."

  • "We went to celebrate our anniversary and they started us off with a glass of champagne; but we really went to be in the water and watch the sunset."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "It is great to eat at the water's edge facing the Hudson River and the Palisades and seeing the sunset. The serenity of water helps you enjoy the delicious meal."

  • "Half Moon has been our staple go-to restaurant for years. The food is delicious, prepared well and presented in an intriguing manner. The staff is engaging and if you have the occasion for dining outdoors, do not pass it up!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "we were seated within minutes of our arrival. the sun was about setting over the Palisades and it looked picture purfect. Our order came out within a reasonable time and the food was excellent! Looking to bring some other friends here again!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We were able to get a table outside. Started with the guacamole and chips, which was ok but had better. For dinner, we had the sesame crusted tuna and Strip Steak, and Red Sangria. Overall good but not the best we have had. For the price we paid, I had higher expectations."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We had been to Half Moon before, but since our last visit, I've found out that I have MANY food sensitivities. Wait staff was extremely attentive to my needs and the dish turned out exactly as I had requested. The chef had to scrimp on a lot of seasonings and ingredients, but it still tasted delicious!! Had a table right by the window...phenomenal view of the sunset!! Great ambiance, delicious food, good wine...thank you for making our anniversary so special!"
