Food and service were phenomenal. They are continuously stopping and asking if you need anything, but not so often that it’s intrusive.
Love this place!

Superb food, as always. Cheesy Brussels sprouts appetizer was a hit. Braised short ribs, pork bolognese and butternut squash lasagne entrées were all top-notch. Oh, and man oh man, the house made bourbon vanilla ice cream with caramel and candied pecans was a perfect ending. Over the Moon took us all the way… over the moon!

Arrived on time and was seated in a cozy corner. Our server was fantastic and although the menu is small, everything was out standing. For an appetizer I had the Brussels sprouts which were out of this world. I also had the duck and my husband had the Beef Rage, again delicious. And they write Happy Birthday in chocolate on out Turtle pie dessert. 5 stars rating

Over the Moon is a favorite restaurant of mine. During Covid, I've picked up meals to go, and finally have started going back inside. I have purchased dinners for my adult children and they have loved it as well. The food is delicious! I will be back soon.

It was my daughters Birthday Eve before she turns the big 13. We enjoyed the food so much the ambiance was just so relaxing and about to get into that relaxing vacation mode. This was a great outing for our first dinner out with my daughter and nieces we had an amazing time and most of all love the food and great service. Thank you so much again!

Took my boyfriend out for his birthday and we had a great time. Food was delicious and we didn’t have to wait long for each dish. I got the Ribeye and my boyfriend got the duck, both were outstanding. We also got the Brussels which were the best Brussels I’ve ever had, and the bread pudding, also delicious. Our server was wonderful. Also they made my boyfriends birthday very special with a rose and a little happy birthday note. I was very happy with our experience there.

Great food, well prepared in a cozy environment. Probably the best food I’ve had in Tacoma. My friend said it was the best lobster bisque she’s ever had. The sauce on the salmon was sublime!

I noted our special occasion of our anniversary online. We arrived and our table had rose petals on it and a card congratulating us on our anniversary. It was a very romantic dinner. The food and service were outstanding as always.

I’ve been a “frequent diner” ever since this restaurant opened. It is by far my favorite restaurant… ever. It is so intimate and cozy. You can hear conversation and they never rush you. The food is always wonderful. You can close your eyes and just point anywhere on the menu. You can’t go wrong. As long as they are around, so will I. Love Over The Moon.

We were celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday and they went above and beyond to place a hand written card and red rose on our table. The food was amazing and the service was spectacular. 10 out of 10 will go again and would recommend Over the Moon for any special event.

Such an amazing little spot. Be sure to reserve an “upper table” or “top floor” table though - we were originally seated toward the back near the kitchen. I asked if we could please be seated at the tables nearest the street. Our waitress obliged and it significantly improved the ambience and the experience of our meal.

Thank you so much for your kind review Michael! Because 6 of our 13 tables are in the "downstairs" area, we simply can't put everyone upstairs, although we absolutely would love to!!! As such we just cannot guarantee preferred seating as we state in our policies. The building we are housed in has definite limitations that we do are best to work within. We hope to see you all again, and we appreciate your patience. Deanna

Beautiful location. Warm and inviting. Not moody, but on the moody/romantic scale. There were poetry books at our table. The steak, salmon, shrimp, and sourdough bread was amazing!

Delicious food. We were at a very uncomfortable table where the cushions did not connect so there was a 5 inch gap. I asked if there was some sort of a pillow, they gave me a huge pillow that would in no way fit in the gap. So we had to physically move the table so there was a place for me to sit. My water glass was never empty. Very on top of it. I did feel the other customers got a better dining experience as their waitress explained the boxes on the tables where as ours barely spoke to us beyond pleasantries. We loved this place over all but would definitely not recommend the table we sat at. As for a table along the wall or in the corner of possible! Food is delicious and I do mean delicious! My only critique would be the vegetables were soaked in some sort of maple syrup. It just wasn’t a flavor that agreed with my pallet. Otherwise we both really enjoyed our meals. Highly recommend this place, just not the table we were seated at. They were fairly close together and there was no comfortable way to sit with the huge gap between cushions and the waitstaff did not really make any effort to make us more comfortable besides handing me a huge useless pillow.
