    This is a great place. I like the restaurants close to the Hudson offering nice views on the water and the many boats. Half Moon has a nice terrace that offers a view on Manhattan. Unique about this place is that when it gets colder outside the indoor seating is almost as attractive. It offers spacious seating, wooden ceiling that is very high. This gives it a unique, open character. The location is oriented towards the West. So when it is clear sky you get to see the sunset. Food is good especially the salads.

    You do not go to this restaurant for the food. It is fine. It is good catering hall/banquet/upscale chain (like BoneFish Gril) food. They clearly can manage large groups here and also have lovely tables for two. Even on a grey autumn day, the views of the Hudson are so spectacular that you leave Half Moon feeling as if you had been on vacation. Service is excellent and view is superb and the food is adequate. Sometimes adequate is enough.

    Even though I was at Half Moon at night, sitting next to a window looking at the Hudson River was almost like being there during the daytime. Our waiter was attentive and the drinks and food came on time. I ordered off the Restaurant Week menu and had the Ceasar, Black Angus Strip Loin and the Tres Leches cake. The ceaser was ok. The steak was thin and had too much grizzle. The vegetables were ok. Also, the red wine selection by the glass was very limited and there was one Italian red on the bottle list. I happen to love Northern Italian reds. Maybe it was that it was the Restaurant week menu but I was not impressed with the food. I know it's a reduced price but if you want a new restaurant week customer to come back, the food should be a little better. All that said, I would come back and order off the regular menu. Best Food Is Luv

    My wife and I trekked from Rockland during Restaurant Week and we are glad we did. The restaurant is beautiful and situated right on the Hudson River. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing and the food was delicious. My wife had the Strip Loin, juicy and a perfect medium rare and I had the Fish Tacos, excellent with a tangy Salsa Verde. We have added Half Moon to our "go to" list. I can wait to try one of their two pound lobster "shore" dinners.

    My husband, daughter and I went for Hudson river Restaurant Week- so it was a good deal and we got a nice table by the river, which even though it was dark outside, we could see. Unfortunately, i can't say the same for indoors! It was SO dark inside we had to use our cell phones to see the menu. It was OK for the Salad and soup, but when my roast chicken came, it tasted seriously underdone- but i couldn't be sure, because I couldn't see it! I didn't say anything, because my husband and daughter were enjoying their meals- but i left about 80% of the chicken on the plate.

    This gem is a don't miss! Put it on your romantic dinner list; your scenic sunset list; your after work cocktails list. In fact don't wait for any of these list events to happen, go there now. Tonight. No point in waiting. The menu will satisfy most everyone, the bar drinks are hefty enough that you won't wonder where the scotch is - or look sideways at your glass to check the color! If you sit at the bar, you'll meet local and very interesting people. There are banquets at or near the fireplace and cozy enough you're most likely to strike up a conversation with the people next to you. In the warm weather, enjoy the outdoor bar, the water side chairs, listen to the jazz of the post work workers unwinding, watch the sunset!

    Half Moon must be taking customer reviews to heart and I thank them for it! The service was very good. The rolls, croissants and muffins at brunch in lieu of a bread basket were warm and soft. Unlimited Mimosas are the best idea in the history of ever. I'm very inclined to recommend this place to others and visit more often.

    We met couples we knew from our ski club days and each of us had met and married through the club. The restaurant, the food and the view were excellent but we asked for separate checks before we ordered because our orders were not going to be near the same price. The waiter was not cooperative and gave us one bill at the end of our meal. When he saw each couple trying to figure out their bill, he came back and did write separate checks for us. Other than that uncomfortable event, our visit was excellent.

    I chose the Half Moon because I was never at this restaurant. It was my friend's birthday. She is very picky about the food she eats. We both loved the place.....great food, fabulous service and beautifully designed so that the noise level was such that you could still carry on a conversation without screaming. The meals were pricy but if there is good food and service, it is worth it.

    We had a great table by the window, good wait staff (tho the waiter never heard of Chivas Regal) and very good food. We ate early, so there were quite a few families, and the noise level was so high we could hardly hear the servers. And the loud music just added to the chaos. If they could tone it down a bit, it would be more enjoyable. It's a trip for us, so I would return sooner if the noise level was less.

    We stopped at Half Moon on the way up to the Hudson Valley. The location is perfect even if a little tricky to find. We had a table by the window looking out at the Hudson. Perfect. The menu had great selections and everything we ordered was very good. We did think the Duck Taco had too much BBQ sauce but was otherwise good. My flounder was excellent. The service was very good. Perfect location and a great gem.

    We had reserved for 10 people for a birthday dinner starting at 4 pm Sunday. The views are magnificent, the location is great, the decor inside is elegant, and the menu is quite varied. The food itself was delicious, everyone was impressed with what they ordered. Wait staff was pleasant. Unfortunately, service was extremely slow from start to finish. It took a long time to take drink orders, to bring drinks, to bring entrees, to inquire about coffee & dessert, and very long to get dessert. (We only ordered 4 desserts for the whole table.) The check was presented about 10 minutes before the desserts arrived. There was a standard 20% gratuity, which is not surprising for a large group, but the service did not merit that amount.

    I have been to the Half Moon before for lunch and have always been pleased. The food is good and the outdoor seating is terrific because the views are so pretty. This was my first time for brunch and I took two guests who were also pleased. The food was very good, the wait staff is outstanding (very attentive) and they seated us by the window as I requested. The river views were, as always, great and all in all it was an all-around excellent experience
