Over The Moon Cafe
Dinner features various entrees , starters, salads and desserts. There is a heavy emphasis on both Italian and French fare, along with my love of comfort food. I do my best to provide wines that are of good quality, are affordable and approachable.
Turn in to the Alley and experience a truly unique fine dining experience in an atmosphere of understated elegance. "Cafe" -- An unpretentious restaurant.
Not so great. We’ve had better experiences there in the past. We dined early, and there were many tables available when we arrived. We asked if we could sit at one of the empty two-tops with the upholstered wing-back chairs (our favorites), but were told that they weren’t available. Not five minutes after we were given a cramped table by the drafty front door, a solo diner walked in with no reservation (we could hear her conversation with the waiter) and was promptly seated at the table we had asked for. Go figure.
The salad, crab bisque and jumbo shrimp pasta were good, but my Cioppino had so much red pepper in it, that it overpowered the other flavors, and I generally love hot and spicy foods.
This is the 4th or 5th time I have eaten there but, the first time for my husband. I took him for Valentines Day. We both enjoyed the Croutes de Fromage, always delicious with the side potato salad. I have recommended it to several people and will go again. Bon Appetite!
Great food and service! The server was very nice, attentive, and accomodating.
Dinner was incredible as always. We just love eating here. Our number place for dinner and lunch.
I love this place! The food is always amazing and the cozy feeling just can't be beat. They braved the snow and so did we for a fun filled birthday night out. They made me feel so special and their deserts just can't be beat. Would recommend Over The Moon to everyone.
As usual, the service and food was outstanding. One of my favorite restaurants in Tacoma....no, it is my most favorite!
Awesome, quiet, unique place. Food and service was excellent. Will be back!!
My husband took me there for my birthday dinner. It was our first time there, and now I am looking forward to returning there again. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful.
Lovely dinner in Tacoma’s Opera Ally. Excellent food and great service.
It was our first time eating here, and we enjoyed it in every respect. The food and service were very good, and the pace of the meal was very nice. We will definitely be going back.
Charming spot, lovely people, a perfect spot for a special date or evening.
This place doesn't do anything for me. I think the food is ridiculously over priced and mediocre at best. My friend loves the "grilled cheese" (they use the French words to dress it up) small plate and it was tasty. But not an over the moon experience. The beets were boring with enormous undercooked red beets with hunks of ordinary goat cheese between them. And even though it was a birthday dinner they served us the delicious earl gray chocolate mouse and charged us for it! Really?! All of the other places where we dined earlier this month for my husbands birthday dinners, the dessert was on the various places. I won't bother going back there.
A place that actually read what I requested beforehand! Everything was beautiful and perfect. The staff was incredible and the food was outstanding! Also, the vegan ‘cheesecake’ was so delicious!! This will be a very special place for us...
The food was excellent and the service was great. Will definitely go back
Consistently a great experience with great service and great food and wine.
Over The Moon has it all - location (theater district), ambience (the upper level tables are especially romantic), friendly, fun service and a great variety of delicious menu options. Great wine, too! Intimate, delicious and fun!
I love this place. Fabulous food and staff.
Enjoyed our anniversary at this Café. Never visited it before and loved the quiet. You could carry on a conversation at normal levels with no trouble. Decor warm and vintage, food was delicious, the desserts wonderful, service fine. Would recommend and visit again!
Out of town friends joined us. They were happy. One thing that bothered me more than it bothered the guy who order it was the fact that there was cream added to the pork ragu. I just don’t get that.
Everything was excellent. It was a little too dark where we were seated. However. For the most part it was wonderful. Also, be sure to get a reservation..
The food here was incredible. Our group had the duck and loved it. I had the squash pasta and it was delicious. The only cons would be: restaurant felt a bit cold and the server seemed really rushed. She seemed stressed out and it showed. Otherwise, the food is well worth it.
Fun food and artsy ambiance! Loved it. I plan to return again.
Delicious food, the creamy sage chicken was amazing! We plan to go back for a date night again and try some other amazing foods!
Absolutely Loved the ambience! The food was excellent! Perfect place for pre or post events. Will definitely recommend & return!
Wonderful find. Food was outstanding (rib ragu and lobster pasta), portions were generous, service excellent, and the setting romantic and quiet. Perfect for date night. Wine list is very reasonably priced and nicely local WA/OR.
Great quaint restaurant. Perfect for a date . Quiet seats about 25. Reservations are a good idea.
Love the spinach dish! A little cold when door was open to vent air. Perhaps a longer curtain to shelter that table. Awesome
Quality of the food was only exceeded by the quality of the service. An outstanding experience!
This place is absolutely amazing, I have been twice and have never been disappointed.
This place gets check marks on all accounts.
I went here on a 2nd date and the vibe was on point !
The Waitress .. can not remember her name the blonde.. was fantastic!!
Yes, go to this place ASAP.
Amazing place. Never disappointed in the service nor the food. The people who work and run this great establishment always make you feel welcome and cared for.
We have been going here for a few years now and the food has always been fantastic. Its a nice quiet place with limited seating, tucked away from the noisy bars and street traffic.
Just go, you will love it!
Loved EVERYTHING about this place! First time but won’t be the last!
I'm so glad that downtown Tacoma now has so many dining options, but I find myself returning to Over the Moon because it's so comfortable and homespun, but with creative, very well-prepared food and good service.
Over The Moon delivers consistently excellent food with always great service.
The best food. Try the grill cheese appetizer
Asked for something special for mine and my wife’s 2 year anniversary. We got rose pedals and two small cut roses on the table for no extra charge. We came here on our first date and will make sure we come here for our next special occasion. The food and service were amazing too, a hidden gem in Tacoma.
Good as always. One Of Our favs to bring out of town guests
Best night ever! For appetizer we did the clams in garlic wine sauce, divine! The roasted duck breast was the best I've ever had with incredible mashed potatoes and an assortment of roasted vegetables. Amazing earl gray chocolate mousse pudding for dessert, all perfectly paired with a bottle of the sauvignon blanc. Over the moon is an understatement, will definitely be darkening these doors again
A great find! If you like good food, great service and a calm relaxing space this is it.
