    Once again "Moonstruck" did not disappoint. We decided to go out to dinner last minute somewhere close and settled on Moonstruck. The menu is always adding new options to old favorites and we were not disappointed in our choices. The Arancini (rice ball) appetizer was different from anywhere else I have ever had it. Basically it was the Best and Creamiest rice ball ever. My husband had a meatball appetizer and it was so light and delicious, that he almost ordered another. The service is old school and I love that the staff seem to love what they do and treat each diner as if they are very special. A real treat for a last minute choice

    I took my wife to Moonstruck for our first anniversary and we've been coming back for special moments for years. The menu never fails to impress and I haven't had the same thing twice. Not content to rest on its laurels, Moonstruck continues to update and upgrade its offerings and the quality is always fantastic. It is a lovely little gem hidden in the Northeast and I plan to keep coming back.

    Moonstruck is a local gem. We have gone to this restaurant more times than I can remember. We have never had a just okay meal. From the moment you enter it is a wonderful experience. We've had family dinners, birthdays and anniversaries there. It is quiet, you can have a nice conversation and the food is over the top. The veal special was tender and juicy and the rainbow trout light and seasoned well. Moonstruck is always our go to restaurant Service is always wonderful, caring and helpful servers.

    Fox Chase is some distance for us, but only about 5 miles from the Keswick, and the menu looked interesting. The white tablecloths and divided dining rooms keep the sound level under control so that conversation is easy. The service was prompt and attentive, but without hovering. But the food was the star! From the calamaretti and insalatas to the crespelle, agnello, and tender bronzino, to the peaches and cream gelato, all was perfectly prepared and presented. The wine list is reasonably priced, and covers a broad range, from Italian whites and reds to select wines from other regions. Highly recommended!

    I had known of this fine restaurant for several years. But, not being an avid dining out person, I never visited. Until, looking for that "Special Restaurant " to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, I decided to make a reservation. We were totally pleased! From our greeting by the hostess to the outstanding service and menu selection. It was a wonderful dining experience.

    This is our go-to special occasion dinner place close to home. Service, staff and food are always excellent. The dining rooms were the most crowded I've ever experienced. So, our seating was more cramped than usual. But, our server, Michael, was no less attentive. Our courses were served timely and beautifully. I did get polenta with my entree instead of the vegetable risoto as was on the menu. No biggie.

    We have been to Moonstruck now for several family events and they are always consistent with good food and service. Portions may be on the small side, but that suits us fine as I would prefer a well made small meal to a large portioned poor meal. They have some solid stand-by's (the eggplant appetizer is very good )and usually offer some nice special options. The fish meals are usually fresh. There does seem to be more of a senior patron clientele, but it is a nice quiet spot for a relaxing dinner for 2 of any age

    To be honest I was quite disappointed with this restaurant. I had gone there a few times before and this was not like my past visits. The food was not great and their wasn't much of it. The prices are extremely high for what you get. The only thing I enjoyed was the salad. I felt I had to apologize to my son and his wife for bringing them to such a poor place. We were still hungry when we left so we ordered a pizza. Moonstruck is definitely coming off my favorite restaurant places to go.
