I've been coming to Moonshine for years, and it truly never disappoints. This particular occasion I needed a fine dining establishment to introduce my friends to a new person in my life... Somewhere that felt like home, but a wee bit fancier. Of course, Moonshine immediately sprung to mind. Two people in my party have a gluten allergy, and I made sure Moonshine still offered variety for those of us who have dining restrictions. And of course, in true style, the menu's abundant GF options didn't disappoint. My guests were actually happily overwhelmed with decisions, which is usually the opposite case. And affordability- I want whoever is reading this to know that you can go for broke and have a night on the town, but you have amazing affordable dinner options that still make you feel like dining royalty and happy hour deals that can't be beat. I've had many milestones happen here... Between the out-this-world food, playfully named tasty cocktails, and superior service, I will continue to be a patron for many years to come. Victor has made a great name for himself here in Millburn and Essex County, and I look forward to many more heartfelt extraordinarily delicious meals at Moonshine.
Brunch with family. Perfect as always. Food, drinks and service were great! Going back next week.
We ate here before attending a play at the Paper Mill Playhouse. The service was friendly and very accommodating (she even offered us coffee "to go" which made a cold and windy walk to the theater much nicer than it could have been). We are fish lovers so we both had fish which was cooked perfectly. Our sides were well chosen accompaniments to our fish but, in both cases, a little more spicy than we'd like.
I have a family member who has a wheat allergy so I always look for GF options when trying a new (to us) restaurant. I was impressed with the selection of GF options.
I would definitely give this restaurant a second try.
Pleasant Valentine's Day experience. Was a pre-fix menu but enough options to choose from. Only minor quibble was filet mignon could have been more on the rare side, but service was very friendly and food was great. Drinks were good, a lot of rye, bourbon style mixed drinks as the trend is towards that these days, creative without going crazy on the drinks. Would definitely recommend for a nice date or drinks at that the bar.
Ran out of items for the Valentine pre fixed was disappointed in the lobster risotto it was hard. Thev staff was very nice and the ambiance was on point
The food was great and the prix fixe was an outstanding and tasty value! Our server, Elyse, was excellent! She was friendly, informative, helpful, and a really nice person! This was a great pre-show dinner experience and we look forward to returning soon!
We had duck salad, avocado toast, seared salmon, duck and waffles, steak and eggs and some bloody Mary’s for Sunday brunch. I was skeptical from reading mixed reviews but thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal even the warm complimentary muffins. Unfortunately, I had to ask since the server didn’t bring it out for our table. The quality, flavor, and cooking skills were excellent: salmon and steak were medium and duck with crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Going to try dinner and hope it’s just as good.
We had a reservation for 8 pm, we got there and they said it would be a few minutes and to sit at the bar, after about 25 minutes at the bar, my husband asked the hostess if our table was ready and she said yes and took us to the dining room which was mostly empty.. so it felt like they were keeping us waiting just so we’d buy drinks at the bar then only sat us once we asked again. Food was mediocre at best. Then I got violently ill later that night from the food. Will never go back.
The place itself is nice, modern yet sleek looking. the service was top notch; however, the food was a big disappointment. hanger steak was dry, and tasteless, as well as the short ribs. the short ribs was lacking a sauce to moisten the dry meat.
would reccomend place for drinks only
Food and service was outstanding
Was there on a business dinner and everyone enjoyed there meal.
We will be going back.
We felt very decadent going to a Supper Club for brunch! It was fabulous! Great food and cocktails at a very reasonable price! We were lucky to have one of the best waiters I have ever met cover our table. He was very upbeat and personable without being overbearing. He seemed to genuinely like his job! We were going there before seeing a show at the Paper Mill Playhouse and the staff was very accommodating and made sure we had our meal in a timely way without feeling rushed.
It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it!
The food and service were very good. However, when we ordered a couple glasses of Pinot Noir, the server asked if we prefer Oregon or France. (We chose Oregon.) My date and I had a couple glasses each -- and were shocked to see an $80 bar tab! We also went for the T-bone special and, again, weren't told the price. (It was $58!)
Shame on us for not asking the prices, but when a glass of wine or entrée is that pricy, the server will typically give that information.
So, overall, our meal of one appetizer, one side, one entrée, and several glasses of wine came to $240. It was good, but not THAT good.
Nonetheless, I'd recommend Moonshine -- as long as you check or ask for the prices before you order.
Really lovely experience at Moonshine. Even brought a sparkler in dessert for our anniversary and got us to the theater on time.
Food was outstanding. Drinks were strong and delicious.
The service was horrible, but the food was ok. Would never go back, based on the service alone
Food and service was excellent. Seating was tight and the upstairs room was very noisy and tables close. Great bar with nice craft beers and special cocktails. We will be back.
This is my 4th time dining at Moonshine and I continue to be delighted with the ambiance, diversity and professionalism of wait and table staff and the fantastic menu.
There is something for everyone and the vibe is that all are welcomed .
Sunday brunch is more crowded then Saturday’s so make sure you have s reservation. Food is delicious. Everyone is super nice
Place never disappoints ! Fabulous !!!! Brunch menu changes with the seasons and the avocado toast was amazing! Had to bring my husband back the next day ..... oh an the ricotta donut holes with honey and pistachios are to die for PLUS one if the best burgers anywhere !!!!!
It was lovely! I recommend the steak and eggs. It was delicious!!!
Places looked great in terms of ambience. Food was so so. Service was not bad but not good either example: waiting for a drink and reminding a manager that we are waiting for 20 minutes and asked him for a drink. Manager is clueless. Beer is good and wine list is impressive. Food was ok not great so hence the 3/5 review
This was our second visit to MoonShin, this time we brought friends. We all enjoyed our dinner and dessert was fabulous.
Went for New Year's Eve dinner the food was very good steak was perfectly cooked. The waitress was outstanding, making suggestions for pairings and menu items. The only negative was that I could see how it could get a little loud at times. All and all a great choice and we will be back.
We were a group of 7 - 12, 16, 19, 20 And 3 adults - for an early dinner. Wonderful service and while a little pricey, food was very good and nice children’s menu! Nice find for us. Would definitely go again.
It was a our first time having brunch with Santa. Our daughter needed to be convinced to initially take a picture Santa. But after Santa and Mrs. Claus visited our table, our daughter was very happy. She enjoyed talking to Santa and listening to him read ‘Twas the Night before Christmas. The service and food as always was excellent!
Went prior to Paper Mill performance.
Food delicious, service great. Highly recommend
Short rib was awful...tasted like soap.
Crowd was weird - guy with T-shirt and hat next to us.
Cocktails are good.
Floor and other tables were dirty.
Would not return.
Food is subpar l; could be more flavorful, service was good, but can be much better.
I went here with girlfriends - we wanted a great meal, different cocktails and a fun scene. Moonshine had all of the above! Our apps and entrees were so delicious (as was the homemade focaccia with dip they brought for the table!) Our cocktails were served in these cool glasses and were so good! We didn’t need to go anywhere after Moonshine, we just moved over to the bar for a cool vibe. Definitely recommend!!
The food is really great. We had scallops to start, and then the “sticky venison” and a special of the day, the “pastrami with pickled red cabbage and mushrooms:” all excellent. For dessert we had the “deconstructed pecan pie:” it disappointed me. I found it too sweet, with a supermarket-pie type of flavor.
The wine list is fantastic, and the cocktails we tried were also very good.
And the server was enthusiastic, professional and very friendly.
I’d definitely come back, although I’ll probably skip dessert.
You can always count on incentive and high quality cuisine. They always find manhattan- type quality chefs and that’s what I️ love and need!!!!
