We are a small 38-seat, family, scratch kitchen boutique-style restaurant and it is our desire to bring you a warm and welcoming dining experience. I strive to keep our menus fresh and updated for every season, while rotating customer favorites. We source local products as much as possible. Our primary focus is fresh, robust menu items, with emphasis on both protein and pasta dishes.

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. We offer some amazing craft cocktails with top shelf liquors. No patron bar seating is available.

Turn in to the Alley and experience a truly unique fine dining experience in an atmosphere of understated elegance. "Cafe" -- An unpretentious restaurant.

Fresh produce, delicious sauces and dressing, and shrimp cooked to perfection. The Turtle Pie was as decadent a dessert as they come! Outstanding experience at Over the Moon Cafe!

Love it. Food fabulous. Staff connects with patrons. Now serving limited cocktails. What’s not to love?
Side note- I complimented the staff on my Manhattan and the individual who made my cocktail was so sweet as to visit me at my table to tell me the history of the ingredients he had chosen. It was a very nice connection.
I send all my friends here.
BTW, as an owner operated business they ask for reservation confirmation with a credit card on the Saturday I booked thru the Open Table app. If you’re unhappy with this practice, I suggest you take your chances and wait in the line to get in.
Second, it says on the website there is no bar...drinks are served at the table

* I am in no way affiliated with this business. I just find them to be outstanding .

Over the Moon is a cozy, family-owned spot with amazing food that's perfect for a date. Re: ambiance --It feels like you're backstage in an vintage theater -- my husband said "I feel like I am going to see that the Muppets are running the kitchen, and I mean that in the best way possible." He ordered the salmon and I ordered a beet/goat cheese salad and the croutes de fromage, and we both ordered the crab bisque which is the best soup I think I've ever had. Bread comes straight from the oven.

This is one of our favorite places in the Greater Seattle-Tacoma area. It always delivers on all levels: friendly service, delicious food, very pleasant ambiance. We dined with another couple this time and everyone had high praise. I also highly recommend Over the Moon Café for romantic occasions or date nights.

Always wonderful. We travel to Tacoma from Portland just for the crab bisque, which did not disappoint. The shrimp in the pasta and light cream sauce did not disappoint. And once again the not-quite-cheesecake-not-quite pie was delicious.

We had an exceptional dinner on Saturday night. We split the toasted Fromage appetiser, each had a cup of crab bisque. I had the duck breasts - two huge ones and they were perfectly cooked, juicy and very flavourful. The smashed potatoes were perfect and so were the roasted vegetables. My friend had the salmon and it was a large portion cooked perfectly. We shared the strawberry shortcake and it too was great. It was the best meal I can remember having in ages! I wrote about it on a FB blog: Where to Dine in Pierce County, run by Sue Kidd. I got 52 comments agreeing! Keep up the good work!

Lunch with my wife at Over The Moon was good, good, good! We liked everything. Superb music played at just the right volume and personal notes left by prior dinners delighted us no end. Mostly romantic - mostly happy, those notes were the rich frosting to a delicious desert reminding us of good times in our own marriage. Sipping our wine while sorting through them was an added treat.
Every element came together nicely creating a great, intimate dinning experience making my wife and I new fans who definitely plan to revisit this charming little cafe.

The restaurant is good. The crowd of customers a little odd, but the parking is awful. This is a place you should plan on arriving early to find parking. We enjoyed ourselves, but won't do it again.

The decor here was so fun and unique. Staff was friendly and helpful and had great food suggestions when deciding what to choose. Everything on the menu sounded amazing. I decided on the rendered duck breasts with a wine cherry reduction of some kind along with red potato mashers, and seasonal vegetables. It was absolutely delicious. The ingredients tasted so fresh. And the ambiance here was just right. Not too noisy, and the lighting was nice.

First visit to Over the Moon and everything was amazing! Took my husband for a surprise birthday dinner. We started with a prawn appetizer and Greek goddess salad. Both were so full of flavor. Then we shared the Duck breast and Lobster Mac n Cheese. I highly recommend both. Jennifer, our server, gave us exceptional care. We have been boasting all week about our experience and will definitely be back!!

Very cozy and romantic spot. Small and casual with a high end feel. The service was the perfect blend of attentive and unrushed. Our table had a great book of poetry about love and relationships, and a box of handwritten notes left by previous diners, both nice touches for a date night.
