Located in Spokane, Washington, Luna Restaurant offers American cuisine in a neighborhood restaurant. The farm-to-table establishment offers fine dining and fresh, locally acquired ingredients. Luna Restaurant has a full bar including an extensive selection of both local and imported wines by the glass.
Try the butternut squash bisque or the tuna tartare to start out your meal at Luna Restaurant. For a quick lunch, choose from a menu full of options like coconut prawns, the lamb burger or the daily quiche. The restaurant also offers an extensive dinner menu full of steak, seafood, pasta and more. For dessert, try the coconut cake or some of the house made gelato.
One of the great things about Luna is that you could always be assured of having consistently good food and a nice dining experience. I have been to the restaurant a few times since it changed hands, once for dinner and once for brunch and both were great experiences and what you would expect from Luna. My most recent experience was very disappointing. The pepper crusted filet was overwhelmingly pepper crusted and the duck was just mediocre. We had the apple crisp for dessert. I would say that the home baked desserts have historically been a strength for Luna. This apple crisp was just poor. So the meal - which was a celebration for my mother's birthday - was not memorable in a positive way and I will need to now consider that, if I go to Luna, I can't count on a memorable meal and evening.
As usual the food was excellent--delicious soup, great meat dishes, perfectly cooked fish, and inventive & delicious vegetable dishes. Of the latter, they are offering some great small plates which one of our party made her dinner (3 small plates ordered & actually too much to eat in one seating--so servings are pretty generous). We had some excellent red wine as well (think it was Barrister, local to Spokane). We live in Seattle but always head to Luna's whenever we're in Spokane. The new ownership (as of Jan. 2015) seems to have braved the transition really well, maintaining great service and an innovative menu.
Overall a pleasant experience with knowledgeable server but uneven food. The dishes we ordered sounded amazing on the menu and showed promise of creativity, but the execution was not always successful. The seabags entree was amazing, while the chicken was paired with overtart vinegar dressed greens that didn't complement the excellent flavor and tenderness of the meat. The apple beignets for dessert were again an ambitious treat, tasty, but would have benefited from a different presentation as they cooled quickly and that degraded the taste.
Great food and beautiful setting. Quite pricey so save if for a special occasion. I don't think our teenagers appreciated it as much as we did.
Luna has always been our favorite restaurant. When you expect excellence and get just OK, it's a little disappointing. Hope the new owners can bring it back up to par. The waitstaff was wonderful as always. We will give them another chance. There are always bumps in the road when a restaurant undergoes change.
The Menu always has new items on it and they run a special for the evenings. The wine list is great and they have nice wines at reasonable prices. The wait staff is always very nice to us. We ate outside because weather permitted and that is also very nice setting, a little street noise but not bad.
A lovely converted home is the perfect place for dining. Unique, beautiful decor and openness that I felt I could really enjoy and taste my food. My friend and I shared the kale salad, which I found delicious and I'm not a kale fan. My entree was the sauteed chickpeas, a delicious meal even without any sort of carbs. Nathan was friendly and patient with us since we had a 6 year old girl with us. All 3 of us shared the cookie plate, three huge cookies baked perfectly with a scoop of ice cream. We all devoured the snickerdoodle. Luna is located outside of Spokane in the well to do neighborhood of South Hill, but worth the drive.
We don't know why we don't dine at Luna more often when we visit Spokane. It is a quiet neighborhood restaurant on the South Hill, and the food and atmosphere are amazing; and classy! The pasta is the best we have eaten anywhere in the country and they are proud of their restaurant and food. It's about 10 minutes from downtown and way worth the short drive.
My wife and I recently visited Luna on the occasion of her birthday. The service, ambiance (we ate on the patio) and were wonderful! From the succulent scallops she ordered to the pizza with homemade sausage I chose, it was truly fantastic.
Reservations earned us a seat at larger table. Noticed crumbs on the seat, stains on upholstery, chipped paint and greasy feeling menus with torn covers-not an auspicious start.
Server was friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Had Beef Tartare-needed more spice and Clams in Broth-hearty and hot to bottom of the bowl-yum. Wine was forgotten-had to remind the server and I have to say, that drives me crazy. Don't bring my food if my beverage is not ready. Had dessert, Pavlova, and it came with strawberries-can't eat them. Server picked fresh raspberries from garden and I was happy.
Delicious food doesn't make up for less than sparkling clean surroundings and lapses in service. Looking forward to a second visit and hopefully, some changes.
