Great spot for a Party!
Paper Moon is classic and reliable. I think the food is good, but not great, and its a very good spot for a birthday dinner or group get together. I would definately go back!

The food was very good although not all meals were at the same temperature. The wine by the glass list was very poor, few choices, 4 total if I recall and very low end wines. Would have ordered a bottle as this list was good, but we couldn't cork and take the partial bottle home.

We arrived early for our reservatio
We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately, after ordering our entrees however, we waited a solid 40 min for our food but no complaints! It was a Friday night and restaurant was packed. The waiter was very attentive and offered us their house garlic bread while we were waiting, I had the squash ravioli and my friend had the veal piccata and both were very tasty. I will definitely come back, perhaps on a weekday when it's probably less crowded.

Everything was delicious,
Everything was delicious, from the bread served before the meal to the wine to our entrees. I had an Eggplant Parmesan dish, I prefer it when the eggplant isn't breaded but it was still yummy. All ingredients tasted fresh.

Good authentic Italian food
Good authentic Italian food and the service was outstanding. Great place to go for dinner in Georgetown.

WONDERFUL! FANTASTIC! I have read the reviews and passed by the restaurant and wanted to try this lovely place for a few years but never got there. For a birthday outing with a dear friend, I decided to finally check it out. The swordfish was cooked to perfection and the seafood platters were just wonderful. Our waiter was wonderful with guiding us through the menu and wine list and making suggestions that were outstanding and he took very good care of us - even brought me a wonderful slice of almond cake that I could have just dove into! My friends and I have a running list of great restaurants in Washington DC and PAPER MOON is now on it. Their brunch is their next for us to try and I have already preselected my order!

We were incredibly pleased
We were incredibly pleased with this restaurant. It had a great ambiance with a romantic touch. The wait staff was great and the food tasted amazing. Their wine list was, I thought, a little lacking; but they had great tasting house wine. Plus their prices were decent. Definitely going back to this place!

We had a group of 11 to dine. Everything was perfect until the end of the meal when the check was presented. The waiter, no fault of his own( no one told him to split the check), brought the check to an older member of our group. She was not expecting the full tab and questioned him. He got a little snippy with her after her comment that is was not responsible for the entire tab. He could have handled it better. She was a 76 year old lady. Another member of group got it all settled, but it put a bad taste on an other wise wonderful dining experence. He, as the host of the resturuant, should have handled the situaion in a pleasant manner becasue he had been a very good server all evening.

The food was incredible! Paper Moon is an absolute gem! Now one of my top 5 favorite local restaurants!

We have dined here five times in last 4 years & have never been disappointed. Our sons are students at GW & Paper Moon has become a go to favorite. Very good Italian food, good wine selection & outdoor dining option makes this a good choice! I almost forgot, it is affordable!!

Enjoyed the brunch :)
I went to Paper Moon because of a Living Social deal I had purchased for brunch. I had been previously for dinner while walking around Georgetown and randomly stumbled across Paper Moon. Dinner was fine but nothing to get too excited about.
But brunch made me really happy! The brunch was a buffet which generally makes me nervous (food that's supposed to be hot ends up being cold, bad service, etc.) but that didn't happen. The burners were working quite well and the food came out nice and hot :) There was a chef making omelets to order which was really nice too! If you go to the brunch and they are serving the same dishes as when I was there, definitely get some salmon, potatoes, and pasta. Delicious!!!

Excellent all around
We were introduced to Paper Moon back in the late 1980's by friends and it soon became mine and my husband's favorite, too. While the last few years we do not find ourselves in Georgetown much, we have made the trek for special occasions - Mother's Day, my daughter's Prom Group, etc. Just this week, we dined at Paper Moon following my daughter's graduation at DAR Constution Hall. A perfect end to a perfect day. Love the open air windows - I wish I'd had the forthought to request our table of 7 to be placed in front of the windows, certainly not something to complain about. I was also pleased to see that the family of one of my daughter's friends was also dining here post graduation. This was unusual since we live in Germantown MD

Great place with really great food!
Went there for my birthday dinner. We had a group of 8 and they were able to accommodate us perfectly. The food was delicious and the drinks were great. The only slight negative was that they were having a 1/2 off all drinks for happy hour and we had to sit at the bar and drink our drinks to get the deal...even though our table was 2 feet away that we were sitting at for dinner. I thought it was kind of silly, but I get that they want to get people to the bar and drink. The bartender was extremely nice. The wait staff was great and the food came out quick and hot! I highly recommend!

Portions were a bit small but the food was delectable! There was live entertainment when we went to eat. The staff were accommodating and kind. It was a beautiful restaurant and a great experience. I would definitely go back!

Great food, location, service.
Perfect experience. Great little find in Georgetown!

The place is great for brunch with a buffet style on sundays, but be warned, the options are great assuming they have some available to try. Would highly recommend this place on a nice sat/sun afternoon since the outdoor seating can be quite pleasant for a weekend brunch spot.

Don't go to this restaurant
Don't go to this restaurant in the summer. It is beastly hot!

Saturday Brunch Spot
Great Georgetown location with outdoor seating; inside seating was nicely spaced instead of on-top each other's tables; service attentive & gracious; food good; looking forward to returning for dinner sometime.

A fantastic Find.
We made reservations via Open Table for 8:00 pm.
We got seated right away even though they were a little busy. The waitress greeted us and we ordered a bottle of my favorite wine. Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio. The waitress was very nice and we liked her tie!! she suggested we start with the Cozze (mussels). It was delicious and that broth was out of this world.
For our entrees, My friend ordered the ravioli lobster and I had the Salmon a la roma. That salmon was cooked to perfection.
Since I am not a big fan of dessert and my friend is, our waitress suggested that we share The Almond cake....This hit the spot. It was the perfect amount and sweet for both of us! Thank you For the wonderful service and food. We will return soon. :)

Food was one of the best I've had in a long time. Everyone of the employees were exceptionally nice. I would highly recommend.

Still like I remembered
It was 20+ years since my last visit. The food, service and ambiance were wonderful. When my friends found out I dined at Paper Moon they said the same thing. Now everyone wants to go back!
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
brunch was good, service was great, & ambiance was classic. I was impressed enough of brunch that I asked to see the regular menu. yes I would try and come back for dinner.

Been here twice. Will certainly go back. Mussels were plentiful and delicious! Lobster ravioli was divine!

The food was delicious, the staff was friendly. The only reason the ambiance got 3 stars is because the restaurant was so dark. Otherwise the ambiance was relaxed and welcoming. Overall, a very pleasant experience, if not one that stood out for anything exceptionally good.

Lovely sidewalk dining ...
On a cool night. Tables too close together though that you end up hearing your neighbor's conversations. They try to stagger arrivals at different tables but it got busy around 7 pm. Nice atmosphere. Good hearty Italian

Paper Moon has a great menu and fantastic foods. It is one our favorite restaurants in DC.

Great pasta dishes
Pasta dishes were outstanding ! Decent wine list. Waited 45 minutes to be seated even though we had a 7:15 reservation. It was parents weekend for three colleges in town and the place was jumping. Once seated service was good and we enjoyed our visit with our college student. Would go back on a less busy weekend.

I took my friend back to paper moon because I had a wonderful experience the first time I was there.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal once again, and our waitress was sweet and attentive!
I would recommend the veal asparagus and some delicious Almond cake! hit the spot! :)
We will be back to try their excellent menu!
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
I read both good and bad reviews of this restaurant before we went there. Decided to give it a try and we all agreed, we had a good experience. The waiter was professional, food was very good, comfortable but elegant interior. We would go there again.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
A great meal with AMAZING service
My date and I had the lobster ravioli, and they did not skimp on the lobster at all. The portions were filing but not overwhelming. The most memorable part of the meal was the service. Our waiter treated us like royalty, and had a great sense of humor. Every single employee told us "thank you" or "have a good night" as we left. It's really hard to find this great of service anywhere else in Georgetown. I could not have been more satisfied with any aspect of the night.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Showed up on a Saturday for a Group-on that was only good Sunday. It was the beginning of husbands bday weekend, Sunday was already booked with golf. Server checked with management and without a roll of an eye or any effort to make me feel more foolish than I already did they graciously accommodated us. Very pleasant experience! Food is good, ok the fries aren't exactly hand cut, but my omelette and my husbands steak and eggs were very good. Nice side street in Gtown for a champagne brunch.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
What, no pancakes or waffles?!
A brunch buffet is not complete without waffles............! But still pretty good.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I to say, I have not been here in quite a while. I was pleasantly surprised that everything was as delicious as I remember it to be.
