I had one of the best mealsI had one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The Mahi-Mahi special with passion fruit sauce was fantastic. I can't wait to go back.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food,but...Always wonderful food/ scenery/service.
I do so wish, though, that that wait staff would wait until all parties at the table are finished with whatever course is served before they start removing plates! I think it is a common, but very rude , practice.
Very high noise level.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent!Always great food, service and beautiful view of the Hudson. Looking forward to going back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthdayI forgot how beautiful this place is! The floor to ceiling windows right on the Hudson river make for a wonderful atmosphere. The food was also absolutely awesome. We started with the lobster mac and cheese, baked clams, oysters, tuna tartar, duck tacos and calamari (we were a big group) and they were all wonderful starters. My husband and brother both ordered the seared ahi tuna which came with edamame dumplings and some veggies- it looked healthy and good! Then- my sister and I both ordered a 2 pound lobster- I had the biggest claw I had EVER seen in my life. and it was great! The peach and blueberry cobbler, chocolate volcano and rissoto pudding were the desserts which we all enjoyed. Can't wait to go back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatly AppreciatedThe evening started a little slow, we arrived early, so there was a small wait. A party was ending and the host seemed a little out of sync. However, she was very gracious and accommodating! Our original reservation was for ten, but I received a call that another couple would be joining us, our server (Sergio) explained that might be a problem, however he was very obliging, and made an adjustment that was worked for everyone. Serving a large group is always a challenge; the wait staff handled our many request very professionally and patiently. Additionally, our guests were very pleased with Half Moon, and we agreed that we would meet there whenever we return to New York. Great service and we are looking forward to visiting again!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood great, but....The food always wonderful. The servers attentive. I do wish, though, that the wait staff would wait until all the diners are finished with each of the courses before they star removing plates. I find it rude that they do not.
Also, the very stained cloth seats in the bar area are disgusting.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA great experiencefood-service-ambiance - wonderful
Highly recommend and would return for lunch or dinner or just a drink.
Can visualize this restaurant as a great location for a large party especially in nice weather. Very beautiful views.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMimpress on a first dateFrom the fresh seafood to the amazing wine selection. The fire place to the outdoor patio where you can enjoy your meal, and partner, while overlooking the Hudson valley and NYC skyline. This restaurant proves itself to be a romantic little hot-spot nestled into an unlikely locale. The wait staff leaves a little to be desired, but are more than capable. I would recommend Half Moon time and time again. Delicious food, great wine and spirits selection, modern and chic decorBlongo69@aol.com and a price to fit most budgets.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayAlways satisfied with our experiences at HMB.

This time our table was fantastic and the wait staff were friendly, knowledgeable and responsive.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular!This is a spectacular setting to dine by! The incredible view is matched by the excellent food and service. It is a place that one feels instantly comfortable and relaxed. I have already recommended it to friends!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDining on the HudsonSpectacular views of the Hudson and the New Jersey Palisades make this a destination restaurant. The food and service are above average but alas also is the noise level. Recommend the cone of french fries to share with the table when having drinks. The halibut served on a bed of crunchy sliced vegetables was excellent and accompanied by a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand made a tasty And satisfying entrée
We will be back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Views - good foodDefinately a mus for the views... food is very good but you go here for the views...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal restaurant!This restaurant is gorgeous and delicious!

Great choice of seafood. Very scenic view right on the Hudson River with distant view of two bridges and New York City. Has outdoor dining in warmer weather. Also an outdoor bar with finger food. Always a great place to go to.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe outdoor dining wasn'tThe outdoor dining wasn't open yet, but you could have drinks outside, inches from the Hudson, and you can see all the way down to manhattan and up north as well. Very relaxing. Its one of my favorite places!
They were nice enough to get us a table next to the window inside when we asked; our only complaint was that the window was a little fuzzy/hazy-could be cleaned more often (I'm sure its difficult right next to the waves and water); interfered with the view a little.
Great food and drinks and ambience, though. Love this place. Great duck tacos and ceviche, lots of great seafood.
I may try the steak next time; haven't tried it yet.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food delivered withGreat food delivered with great service, while enjoying a great view.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a nice meal withGreat for a nice meal with a great view.

(Seems to only be not in effect saturdays). Was excellent! So good now i want to go back to try some of the regular priced dishes not on there to see if they are even better. Never gone here assuming it would be overpriced and uninspired due to those typical on the warer locations that dont seem to try very hard. This was not one of them. Great beer selection and reasonable. A bottle of Chimey, that it $10 everywhere else was $8 here. Fantasic wait staff durring our visit.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is good.

It was a busy Saturday night and I think one of our servers (we had two assigned to our table) was in training. The food was incredible, as always. The Mahi and Octopus Ceviche was outstanding, as were the duck tacos (appetizer). We had the Granny Smith Apple Crumble for dessert and it was delicious. Whole-heartedly recommend this restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit.This was my second visit. This is a fantastic place. Good food, good service, great views. Unusual for a place with these great views to also have good food. The first was for Sunday brunch. This is a different place for Sunday brunch. The staff tries mightily, but they are so busy that it is impossible to win. But weekday lunch is another story. Fantastic place.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!What a great experience! I took my family (including two kids) there for my husband's birthday brunch, and we had a wonderful time. The food was great - we had the fried calimari (light, crispy and flavorful), the St. Louis ribs (smoky and tender), the french toast with fruit compote and the incomparable eggs benedict. All delicious. We also had the chocolate volcano cake and dulce de leche creme caramel - very good and customized with a birthday message which we didn't even have to ask for. Stunning Hudson River and Palisades view, and the service couldn't have been better.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated promptly forWe were seated promptly for our reservation. Waitstaff was attentive and food delicious. Dessert was huge--glad we chose to share. Have been there for a bridal shower, dinner during the week with friends and dinner on weekend--consistently good.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here to celebrateWe went here to celebrate a friend's birthday and the waiter remembered this from our reservation. The service was awesome. The food was not as great as it could have been.
The pork chops that my friend ordered was dry - along with the mashed potatoes.
I ordered the seafood plancha - it was good, not excellent. My husband had the duck.
The flavor was good - but it was also slightly dry. The best dish was the whole red snapper cooked with tomatoes, red peppers, etc. The flavor was great, the fish was tender
and the veggies were tasteful. The view is INCREDIBLE! and the bonfire pits outside is definitely very unique.
I would go back for drink and appetizers - not dinner.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRight on the Hudson with beautifulRight on the Hudson with beautiful views particularly on Spring & Summer evenings. Nice fresh seafood to match. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. On a good night, it is a great combination for fun evening with friends.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed the prix fixeReally enjoyed the prix fixe priced dinner. The food was good and for $29 it was reasonable, however they only offer this from time to time. They should do it during the week continuously. Only negative comment was the desserts could be improved. We really don't like sweet desserts but the two desserts we ordered could use some sweetening i.e. cheesecake and the pineapple upside down cake.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great time thereAlways a great time there at Half Moon. Great views of Hudson River, food never disappoints and the staff is always willing to interact with us. One of the best restaurant in Westchester County, NY.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent . ServiceThe food was excellent . Service was great. Could not enjoy the scenery as it was dark. I saw one of the reviews which mentioned that the heat could be turned up, which we experienced ourselves. The side with the windows were cold. But it was a nice evening. I have already recommended the restaurant to a few. I would certainly go there again during the summer.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMwaiters were very helpfulwaiters were very helpful and knowledgeable of the menu.the only thing that we didn't like was that the gratuties were already placed on the bill. I feel that the customer should be alouded to determend the tip.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to goThis is a great place to go w/the whole family for special occasions and just to
meet up for dinner. Food is great and price is too3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVaried menu with daily specials.Varied menu with daily specials. Very good food and great service. Noise level was low, the setting was dimmed lighting with a beautiful view of the Hudson River before sunset and a good view of New York City (from afar) after dark.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBe careful with the menu asBe careful with the menu as they use a lot of phrases that are not common knowledge. The two servers that took care of us were very attentive and knowledgeable, and the place was very accomodating when I was unhappy with my appetizer. (I was unaware that the Caesar Salad dressing had cilantro, an herb I am simply not a fan of)3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI was so happy to find a newI was so happy to find a new place to eat out of Manhattan! Half Moon is a hop, skip,and jump away! Seven stops from Harlem 125th street on the Metro North to Dobbs Ferry, and when you arrive the restaurant is right there, like a five minute walk! The restaurant is large and very well designed. They sat us at a cozy corner table, over looking the Hudson.The service was good, My lunch was delicious and the wine was nicely priced by the glass. There is a great outside dining when weather permits, and seats to sit and sip cool drinks. By the way, the music was really great! No Hip Hop stuff. Music I love and remember. I'll definitely have my sister's birthday there this coming July and Half Moon will definitely see me and my friends agan3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, location, and serviceFood, location, and service were great. Fantastic menu for Restaurant Week. This was my first time there and would return again. There were only a few things needing some attention. It was freezing by the windows. There was no heat on in the entire area where we sat. Half of my table were wearing jackets. This was a missed opportunity of the wait staff to be more accommodating and attentive. Another missed opportunity was how long our entrees took to arrive. We had to ask when it would arrive.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was really, reallyThe food was really, really good and the restaurant itself was beautiful. I had a cosmo at the bar and it was amazing. Our main waiter was not that great and seemed distant and forgot a few things that we had ordered. Overall, I would definitely go back and hope that I would get a different waiter.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was terrific.Everything was terrific. The service was fantastic! We had 2 waiters along with their support crew of 2-3 who made sure we had what we wanted and that everything was good. Since we are not big meat eaters (they had a very good selection of steaks) we decided to share 4 appetizers and a salad as our dinner (there were 2 of us) as opposed to ordering entrees. All of the appetizers were excellent (though a bit pricey). This strategy left room for us to enjoy their special ice cream cake dessert which was fantastic (4 scoops of ice cream, fresh fruits and a nice wafer on top and bottom). Overall, we enjoyed our evening and can't wait for the summer so we can sit outside as we eat.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHalf Moon all good!We took advantage of the Hudson Valley Restaurant Week offering (and apparently so did many others!) to enjoy a nice meal at the Half Moon. Winter/late spring evenings is not the best time to go if you want to enjoy the beautiful views of the Hudson River, but anytime is great to savor a wonderful dining experience. The specials for this evening included well-prepared Caesar salads and a spicy tuna tartar; most of the party ordered the fresh salmon with a spinach/corn/beet vinaigrette base which was actually quite tasty. Desserts--included in the special--were classically small but powerfully flavorful. The crowded restaurant kept our server very busy and, understandably, made it difficult to get his attention. But we had a great time!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience-beautiful viewsThis was our first time at Half Moon and we were not disappointed. The service was great, so was the food and the restaurant week menu had plenty to choose from (they're extending it through April ($29.95 - three courses). We weren't chased out, we lingered over our food and dessert enjoying the atmosphere of the fellow diners and that beautiful view. We will be back during April for sure.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMView was perfect @ sunset;View was perfect @ sunset; food was excellent; window table right by the water; wait staff excellent3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMost amazing views.

They seated the five of us at a lovely table by the window. Trying to be considerate, I gave my colleagues the beautiful view of the Hudson. When the waiter lifted the shade, I had an incredible view of the Tappan Zee! I'll be back...looking for that view....with my husband!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
