We'd eaten upstairs at the formal Mooncusser's before, which was fantastic-- great food and an elegant setting. But we had not eaten downstairs at the Moon Bar until now. The food downstairs was just as tasty as upstairs, but generally with smaller plates. The selections were very interesting too. We had the ceviche and the poke as appetizers and both were amazing. The fish tacos were also excellent. There is only beer and wine (no hard liquor), but a good selection of both. The Moon Bar is casual, and is mostly set up for couples rather than groups of four or more. Nicely for bar seating, one can make reservations on line. We are definitely going back. More

Food was good and quick! My friends had the combo (french toast was amazing) and the eggs Benedict. I had the avocado toast. My only complaint is that the avocado was very cold which brought down the temperature of the toast and the poached eggs. The best part of the dish were the heirloom tomatoes. Our table was very comfortable and the atmosphere was relaxed, although the lighting was too low especially for brunch. Overall the total was $54 which I think is very reasonable for 3 people at a nice brunch. More
