There was an appetizer special of lamb served tapas style that was OUTSTANDING. I'm told that it's going to be added to the menu soon, and I would keep coming back just for that alone! They were soooo tender and flavorful, I could have eaten a bucket of them. We always enjoy ourselves at this restaurant and love the funky atmosphere and eclectic design.

Tapas and more
The new menu at Under The Moon is fantastic. The tapas are authentic and delicious; as always the service was fabulous. Our entrees were flavorful and my strip steak was perfectly cooked. The interior of the restaurant was just renovated and once again the creativity is amazing, our entire party was impressed. It is amazing how Under The Moon brings city quality and ambiance to Bordentown.

We really enjoyed our meal!
We really enjoyed our meal! I had the Pork Osso Bucco, which was fantastic! My husband was disappointed that they were out of the Beef Short Ribs. We love the ambiance and the warm bread with chimichurri sauce is a fantastic start to the meal! We will definitely be back again!

Our food was delightful, including all courses. The brie appetizer was just enough for two and a great beginning to a great meal. We split a salad which was enough for two before having crabcakes and a pork chop. The portions were more than adequate and everything was delicious. You can't leave without their wonderful desserts. I had the banana, chocolate chip bread pudding, it was to die for. The portion was so large I brought half home. My husband was so impressed with the meal that he thought it was the best meal we had had in years.

We went there last night for an Anniversary dinner. It was exactly what we were looking for in all aspects - food, people and ambience. It's an eclectic place that really makes you feel comfortable just walking in the door. People were friendly, portions were right on and the food was very good. My wife had the Ahi Tuna which was fantastic and perfectly done and I had the Chicken Napolitano which was huge and very well done. At the end of the meal we had the chance to meet the chef and the owner and you can see why the place operates the way it does - pride and customer concern. We will definitely be back!!

49th Wedding Anniversary Dinner
We have gone there before to dine and it was great to see a new menu. The restaurant offered unique food choices. We were not disappointed.
We selected a few appetizers which included the Brie, my favorite, It was followed by a colorful assortment of the meats and cheeses cutting board. They were very flavorful. Dinner was delicious. I personally love to eat seafood and my choice was the salmon. My husband, the tuna, my parents both had meatloaf and my in-laws both had the vodka rigatoni.
Desserts were fantastic. Try the peanut butter chocolate cheesecake. It's outstanding!!!
The owners of the restaurant visited our table to follow up and it was greatly appreciated. They care and have a passion for what they love to do.

Enjoyable from the start
We found Under the Moon at one of Bordentown's festivals several years ago. After trying the food at the festival we decided to come back for a full dining experience and were pleasantly surprised. The ambience of the new location is wonderful for both a relaxing dining experience and even a little more high end. The service is not to be matched in the local area and the food is some of the best that we've had. We have fallen in love with the introduction of Tapas items on the menu and are trying to bring more friends to this location. A great evening and great food.

We always have a lovely meal at Under the Moon and this was no exception.

Expensive but worth it
I am not a foodie, I usually do not linger over my food. I have been to Under the Moon three times now. The food at Under the Moon is the exception. Every main dish has been exceptional, most of the sides have been equally exceptional. Each meal has been worth savoring and letting the tastes linger to get the full experience. The seasonings added to the dishes enhanced the flavor but did not overwhelm the base flavor.

Been there several time. Very eclectic, well prepared food. Love it!

This is a great place to come
This is a great place to come for lunch. I enjoyed my 2 courses, especially the crab cakes. I would recomend them very highly.

Outstanding food and pleasant servers make this restaurant well worth going to. We very much enjoyed what we ate and definitely will return. The atmosphere with antiques, mismatched old china, is colorful and brings back pleasant memories of yesteryear, all artfully done. Do try this restaurant!

I was so taken with my lunch last month, that I returned to see if they really are that good. They are.
I enjoyed 3 tapas and they made a perfect lunch. As I was dining, I overheard the server tell a customer, "it's all delicious;" I am inclined to agree.

That's what it feels like walking in here. Nicely decorated, vibrant, colorful & interesting.
The appetizer we ordered (empanadas and the artichoke/cheese rice balls) were outstanding.
The NY strip steak was good, cooked to perfection & the mashed potatoes yummy! My salmon was ok, cooked well, but the sauce over it was a bit too overwhelming & the filet just didn't look like a fresh, more like a frozen filet but it could be my deceiving eyes. Not sure there, I've eaten salmon at many places & it didn't look like others. The rice although good, it was a bit oily for me. Overall very good food.
And the dessert, to die for. The tiramisu & chocolate cream pie were delicious!!!!
I recommend this place, definitely worth a shot :)

Two friends and I recent visited here for our birthdays. It's a BYOB and they were very helpful with keeping the wine chilled for us. The place has a lot of character and love the way it is furnished. Food was excellent and prepared exactly as ordered (my one friend got a steak and it was perfectly cooked). I would definitely go back here again.

Don't miss this one!
The food here is always great and the service friendly and accommodating. It's a BYO so the meal is reasonable.

Great Late Lunch
I made a very good meal on a Cesare salad (great homemade dressing) and a couple of tapas. Always a pleasure to dine, here.

Food was wonderful and the service was friendly and attentive. We were not rushed out.

Food was good but pricey for a BYOB
Food was good. Service was pleasant. The only less than stellar comment was the price which, for a BYOB, is 30-40% higher than other similar places in the next town over.

An eclectic surprise
First time at Under the Moon Cafe and it did not disappoint. It was an eclectic surprise. Enjoyed everything about it. The grilled chicken with roasted peppers and mozzarella was delicious with the potato wedge side (much better compliment than a french fry). Can't wait to go back with my hubby and try the meatloaf. Couldn't help but converse about the decor while lunching. This cafe is a must do when visiting the historic town of Bordentown!
