MoonShine - Modern Supper Club
Fine dining comes to New JerseyYou can stop at the bar for a very special drink, or go right to your table to enjoy it with some really great appetizers. Try whole fish or scallops as a main course or listen to specials from a really superb chef from Austria. The atmosphere is relaxed yet perfect for fine dining as elegant as you want it to be, Staff knowlegeble and friendly. Chef is a real find outside of New York City. Lucked out last visit with a goat and fresh salad plate with fruit slices and puffs of creamy wonder. Salmon and orange a real original and black cherry cake unbelievable! worth the trip and great for locals.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AManniversary dinnerMy husband and I went for our annivesary dinner and we had a great time. I thought the food was great but my husband thought it was only OK. But we both thought the service was outstanding.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter for Beer than FoodiesGreat evening out to a place with a nice beer draught list and an amazing menu. The short ribs were excellent however the risotto was undercooked and hard. I'd recommend a 3 Philosphers pour and the duck. I was also hoping for some love music - call ahead as it wasn't clear on their website that there was a private event that night and no live music.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMquiet night turned into partyWe sat upstairs in a quiet corner and enjoyed a nice dinner until we were just about finished and the entire upstairs was being used for a private party. We were surrounded by partygoers, switching up of furnishings and loud music as thing got rolling. Fortunately we were not staying for dessert and gave up our table to the party asap. It was weirdest because there were empty tables downstairs...why didn't they seat us there to begin with?? all in all a good spot for a decent casual meal at a place with a bar.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic (gnocchiFood was fantastic (gnocchi appetizer, short rib & hanger steak entrees).5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for Mother'sWe were there for Mother's Day brunch. The food was very good and very reasonably priced for a special event price fixed menu. The crab salad appetizer was particularly delicious and the presentation was impeccable. The service was excellent and what you would expect from a restaurant three times the price. The staff were very attentive to routine service but went above and beyond. We had a 1 year old with us and were brought child's silverware when we sat down, child cups for drinks and one of the staff made a shaker toy out of a plastic cup and cover.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTrendy but not inaccessibleWe went here for a Mother's Day brunch. The $20 prix-fixe was a great value--you get an appetizer and an entree. They have a varied drink list with some craft beers. We sprung a last-minute addition on them by bringing my 14-month old daughter and they had no problem accommodating her with a chair (probably helped that we ate early). We sat right by the sidewalk doors which were open and the atmosphere was lively without being too noisy and obnoxious. Had to wait a little while for the check, but the experience as a whole was enjoyable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and ambienceThis place is great for any occasion the food is to die for, the service is amazing and the the drinks menu really good. The deep fried squids was the best I have eaten anywhere. The pork chop was good but a bit big and dry. If you want a good night out in down town Millburn go to Moonshine you won't be disappointed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMthe Service was marvelousGreat waiter who proficiently described the dishes, refilled drinks without asking and made it a more enjoyable dining experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food in MillburnWe had a terrific meal.

The cocktails were excellent and the bartender paid attention to my friend special request as she is very particular about how her favorite drink is prepared. I would definitely dine here again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Experience, Worth the PriceWhat a treat this restaurant is! Pricey, sure, but never have I experienced such wonderful service partnered with fantastic food. Our party partook of the 5-Course menu, a bargain, as you get to enjoy portions of whatever specials are available. From the app to the soup to the salad to the entrees, I cannot say enough good things about the food. We raved over it. Our waiter was kind, patient, friendly and knowledgeable, and everyone fell all over us making sure we had a wonderful evening. I'd return here in a heartbeat. Absolutely worth the expense. (Oh, and park around the corner in the lot, it's infinitely easier).4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steaks, and an awesomeExcellent steaks, and an awesome mushroom risotto. The spinach side was forgettable.
In the starters, the crab cake certainly stood out.
This is a really nice restaurant. We will be back.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend this restaurant.Highly recommend this restaurant. From the moment we stepped in to the moment we left, we had such a nice a positive experience. Everyone's friendly & the food is very good. We had tuna tartar to start, shorts ribs w/mushroom risotto & the duck as our dinners, and a cheeseplate for dessert. Everything was great, def will be back.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough the food and serviceAlthough the food and service was good, not great but better than ok, we found the music to much. If you like the thumping club sound, this is the place for you, however if you're looking for a peacefull romantic night out, this is not.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMoonshine was great, foodMoonshine was great, food and service were excellent, certainly worth more visits.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNot romantic enoughThe food was great and service excellent. The place was empty on a sunday evening. The atmosphere disappointing.
Not unique nor romantic. Probably good for a business meal,brunch or married people.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid Millburn betRecently dined at Moonshine for a second time, and everyone in our group of foodies thought the food/menu had improved (not that it was bad before - just a bit over-ambitious). All four in my party were very impresed with everything ordered. Delicious start to finish. Great service both times.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMContinued Regulars at Moonshine!I have been to Moonshine many times now- for brunch, lunch, dinner and also to the bar for apps/drinks. They never miss the mark! Food has been consistently outstanding and from what I understand they have a new chef who took the food to another level. Superb! Service is impeccable and the staff is very knowledgable on the menu. My social circle loves this place and we are continued regulars. Great atmosphere to boot!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed celebratingWe really enjoyed celebrating Easter with a Brunch at Moonshine. Very creative Brunch variations!
