Over The Moon Cafe
Excellent food, as always. This is my wife and I's go to spot for celebratory dinners.
Reservations needed for Covid. Increased spacing and masks. Beautiful cozy atmosphere with eclectic seating and decor. The butternut squash and sage sausage lasagna was fabulous. Well balanced and delicious.
Delicious! One note, ragu seemed a bit less and a bit wetter than the normal. Still, we love this restaurant for the quality, complex flavors in dishes that take time to make, and the intimate atmosphere.
I took my mother there for her birthday dinner. There was a hand written birthday card from the staff, they brought her a rose, and even spelled out Happy Birthday on her dessert plate. Five stars !
Very nice. Enjoyed the experience and will go again in the near future
Each dish was prepared perfectly. I loved it all.
The ambiance reminded me of a mix between a high-end restaurant and a corner cafe. Relaxed seating options for the tables for 2, such as lounging chairs, which made eating at the table a bit odd, but by no means in enjoyable.
You must have a reservation. Walk-ins were turned away, as with COVID-19 limiting them to half capacity in an already small setting, they can’t afford to risk reservations not being able to be seated.
The food was great. Had their chicken dish, Croute de Fromage (highly recommended), the shrimp dish and their crab bisque. All of it was delicious and flavorful, yet specific and not distracting In Any way.
Pricing is high, but the portions and food quality is worth it. Everything is organically sourced, and many options are vegetarian or vegan as-is.
Overall not a place I’d frequent often, but most definitely a prime location for a romantic night out or a first date.
Leave a note! Keep that cute tradition going.
Wonderful ambience and food for a date night! Our first time and we really enjoyed it.
We received a gift certificate to dinner for a wedding gift. We had a wonderful time, the food was fantastic as was the service. We love the cozy, intimate atmosphere. Will definitely be dining with you more frequently!
Thank you, Ron and Kris Williams
Will be coming back again! Love the ambiance, food and the friendly staff!
Wonderful little restaurant with fabulous food. Great place for anniversary or romantic birthday dinner. Can't wait to go back!
Amazing food, amazing service! Best spot to eat in Tacoma.
Over the Moon is our favorite place to celebrate special occasions. The food is fabulous, the service wonderful, and the ambiance magical.
Amazing food & cozy romantic atmosphere. They treated the birthday girl like a queen. We will absolutely be back!
Great place for a date night. Friendly staff and amazing food. We definitely plan on going again.
I took my wife for her birthday. I normally don’t like surprises, but Over The Moon was an incredible, delightful, surprise.
The food was just spectacular. We started with the jumbo shrimp appetizer, which was just delicious.
My wife ordered the scallops risotto, which, in her words, was “so creamy and delicious. I finished every bite.”
I ordered the ribeye. I have to say, I’ve eaten a ton of steak, some of it at some amazing restaurants, and I’ve made a lot of steak, so I know what a good steak tastes like. All that to say, I think you can trust my opinion on steak.
The ribeye was, without a doubt, the BEST steak I have ever had, by far.
The outside was seared perfectly while the inside was moist and juicy. And while many steak places make the mistake of not liberally seasoning their steak, Over The Moon’s ribeye was seasoned (you guessed it) perfectly.
I normally have trouble eating steak of that portion size, but that night, with the exception of a few bites for my wife, I ate it all, and happily.
But the surprise didn’t end there.
At our table was a small box stuffed with little pieces of paper. It turned out to be receipts, note cards, I’m guessing whatever people had on hand.
Past guests had written on those pieces of paper. They shared about the experience they had, who they were with, the occasion being celebrated.
Friends, colleagues, couples, birthdays.
One person even wrote about what a difficult year they’d been having, and that eating the meal there and reading the other notes was exactly the uplifting pick me up they needed.
I think that’s the kind of surprise that makes a restaurant more than just a place to sit down where you’re delicious food (which Over The Moon had in spades).
Instead, it leaves you feeling like you’re eating a home cooked meal, in the best way possible.
Food was incredible, service impeccable, COVID precautions excellent.
We had an amazing dinner. It was perfect. It was our 30th anniversary and they set up our table with a card and a rose and a complimentary dessert. The service was lovely and the food delicious. There was respect for covid guidelines and we felt comfortable and secure. Cant wait to go back.
There’s no place better. The food was unbelievable, the service impeccable, the ambience was everything one could expect for a place called Over the Moon. Everybody needs to try this place!
We love this place! The food is always always incredible! Best girls night!
Over The Moon is always great, hesitate to recommend as it’s such a gem
Great parking, FANTASTIC meal, solid service! Quiet, too!
Amazing!!! The moment we walked in, we knew we chose the right place to dine for our 20-year anniversary. The table was adorned with rose petals and a signed anniversary card.
Our server was phenomenal—friendly, attentive, and super funny, while also giving us plenty of time and space to enjoy an intimate dinner. Her suggestions were perfect and her service was stellar.
Our food blew us away. I started with a lovely fall mixed greens salad and he started with the clams. He soaked up every last drop of broth with his fresh bread. I devoured the wild salmon that was beautifully cooked and served with their tasty mashers and perfectly prepared green beans. He really enjoyed the braised short rib ragu. We each sipped a delicious cocktail and finished our meal with worth-every-carb dessert. Peach cobbler with house-made bourbon vanilla ice cream for him, and gluten-free hummingbird cake for me, with a freshly brewed cup of decaf topped with silky whipped cream and, of course, a flower.
I am always grateful for Celiac-safe dining and I am elated to report that I felt great the next day. That’s always the test.
I don’t know why it took us so long to go here, but we are eager to return and make Over the Moon Cafe our go-to spot for celebratory meals and indulgent date nights.
Amazing food and service!! Highly recommend to anyone wanting a romantic dinner
We celebrated our 10 year anniversary and we were welcomed to a rose petal decorated table with a card congratulating us on our anniversary and the food was outstanding and amazing. I highly recommend the ribeye and the chef prepared it perfectly to my liking. The whole evening was such a memorable occasion and will be celebrating every anniversary here!
The food is absolutely delicious and worth every penny! The restaurant is very cozy and lends itself to relaxing and enjoying the company you are in! It was our anniversary, and there were rose petals on the table along with a lovely card from the restaurant! Love this little place and always recommend it to friends and family!!
Always a great time!! Thanks to an awesome staff!
Amazing overall, had a special request for an anniversary and they delivered perfectly. Food was great and waitress was super friendly. We will definitely be going back.
As always, the best. The food, the surroundings in gorgeous Opera Alley, the service, the experience. Everything was perfect.
Always good, service is great, food is great, always enjoy our visits here.
Overall all great but my dates cocktail was very weak. Asked for a shot of vodka to fix her cocktail. Call me crazy but $10 for a shot of vodka seems excessive to me🤔
It was our 10 year anniversary and the staff had decorated the table with rose petals and a card. It was a wonderful evening!
First time going to OTM. We had the grilled peaches as an appetizer and butternut squash lasagna for dinner...both were absolutely fantastic and we would highly recommend the lasagna! It’s not vegetarian, but still fantastic! We also loved the old school eclectic vibe of the place and the staff were very attentive! Fantastic experience overall and we’d absolutely go again!
Over The Moon was a completely wonderful dining experience! The dining room was quiet with an enjoyable ambiance throughout. Comfortable chairs and softly lit tables were relaxing. Our server was impeccable with their timing. We ordered yummy Moon Drop cocktails and garlic clam appetizers which were divine! The true highlight of the meal was that insanely flavorful butternut squash lasagna, it was soo tasty! I was blown away! Every course of the meal was AMAZING! I'm already making plans to return again! Bravo, Over The Moon, BRAVO!
Wonderful Birthday Dinner for two
Had dinner with my wife there for our anniversary. Great experience from the moment we stepped in the door. Danielle was fantastic, and helped make our night great. Food was worthy of all of the great reviews, and portions were perfect. Highly recommend.
Literally one of our favorite places! We always think to celebrate special occasions, date nights, or milestones here because we know the food and service will be amazing.
I love this place. The food, the service, the ambiance, everything. The chicken and salmon were fantastic, I especially enjoyed the potatoes with the chicken.
The standout was the crab bisque. The absolute best I’ve ever had.
I’m looking forward to going back.
The short rib ragu was a little salty but good our waitress Daniella was lovely. My husband's meal was.on point he had the rib eye. Overall we had a lovely experience. Will definitely go again.
