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. 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.
Dinner was perfect. We had the best service and the food was excellent. Thanks for a great evening celebrating our anniversary!
Birthday dinner went well. It was cozy and quiet and food was great
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!
We two have repeatedly enjoyed Over the Moon Cafe. The drinks and entrees are imaginative and exquisite. The servers are human but efficient. I even enjoy the furnishings and coziness. We'll be back!
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 .
Everything was wonderful. Would definitely go back.
Amazing restaurant. Very good service and excellent food!
Excellent food pairings, with unique ingredients, really delicious!
Food was terrific, service was outstanding. Best fine meal I have had in Tacoma in years.
Delicious food and great service. Romantic setting...get dessert!!
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.
Delicious food and amazing service! Can’t wait to go back and try another dish soon!
Nice atmosphere and amazing food. Our server was prompt and friendly.
The flank steak and salmon were both excellent, as was the brussels sprout with cheese sauce small plate.
I had the best steak I've ever had. The ambience is super cool. We will definitely be back.
First time at this restaurant and we wish we lived closer because we would definitely go back. Food was excellent, as was the service.
The food was great and the service was fast and friendly
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.
Very nice restaurant. The service and the meal were both excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening out.
Noise level is low so a good location for a conversation, great service and reasonably priced food.
Amazing! We loved the food and top notch service. We will be back.
I love the ambiance at over the moon! My girlfriend and I went there for our first date and again a year later and it did not disappoint! There is wide variety of wine which are delicious! Their pasta and salmon dishes are exquisite! An overall great place to go!
Over The Moon Cafe is a wonderful restaurant. I went there with my girlfriend and we both were extremely satisfied with the excellent service and food. The owner made a point of saying hello which was a fantastic ending touch. We will be back!
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!
Lovely as always. 😊
Scrumptious, home made, fresh food. Great wine list, tasty cocktails!
Amazing experience again! Love this place. Took an friend from out of town to show you all off. She had a wonderful time too. In fact, she's planning to bring her girlfriends to check the place out next time she is in town. My number 1 place to go for guaranteed great food, service and atmosphere! Love u guys!
The atmosphere is perfect; the food is like a dream: I highly recommend this location!
As always the food was delicious the atmosphere perfect. Cozy little restaurant where you can have a great conversations with friends or just with the person you love. Wine was excellent, salmon was cooked to perfection and the service was awesome. Thank you Over the Moon cafe for a truly delightful evening.
Unique place with very different but good setup. Food was terrific, a little pricey but for the taste it was worth it. I would recommend this place, outstanding place for date night.
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.
Vintage and quaint, quiet ambiance, and a great menu that isn't overwhelming with choices. The food and staff are wonderful. It's a great place to enjoy a romantic dinner.
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!!
One of the Best food and service dining experiences I’ve experienced. Definitely will be coming 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.
We enjoyed a great dinner with friends. Would absolutely return again in the future!!
Fabulous food and service - one of my most favorite places!
