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, and it is my belief that real food is the best food and I cook what I love to eat.

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.

Been here in the past and everything was great however, did not have a great experience on Valentine's Day, was given a table for 4 although it was just my husband and I, I asked to be reseated in the many available more personal seatings but was told would mess with other reservations whatever that meant, my entire stay most of the seatings remained empty. My braised beef pasta was watered down maybe new chef, maybe it was because of my complaint ? Idk but service was rushed and not great and my food wasn't great so won't be back anytime soon especially for a special occasion.

I just lost all my hair to chemo and have not been out since December. I am a foodie and my husband insisted he take me out for a romantic lunch on Valentine's Day. Was I happy he did! The energy is this place is amazing. Thor, our waiter, was amazing. Most of all the food was amazing. My husband scores big with me! Take a date, you'll be glad you did.

Great food and service although she was working alone, she did a great job. The food was very good and has that authentic taste. My husband and I enjoyed our pre-valentine dinner here. We will be happy to come back and try another dish in the menu.

Anniversary dinner with my wife and thought we’d try somewhere new. As it turned out, this was the perfect setting to celebrate. Great food, comfy big chairs, and excellent service! We will definitely be back!

I adore this hidden jewel! Great ambience and food! I hope it stays cozy because Tacoma needs places like this that the locals know are the spot to go to!

This was our first time at Over the Moon Cafe and it was phenomenal. We were celebrating an early Valentine's dinner and found it to be cozy, romantic and quaint. The food was fantastic. My fiancé said the Chicken Caccitore was possibly the best meal he's ever had. The crab cakes were also one of the best we've had. The waitress was very accommodating and attentive. We will certainly be back!

We were 30 mins late due to an accident on the freeway. The restaurant was super accommodating and even sped up over service so that we could get to a concert. The food was great. I would definitely go back.

We love it when an event brings us from our home in Sammamish to Tacoma so that we can include a dinner at the Over The Moon Cafe!
The passion that the restaurant has for what they do is apparent in every aspect of the dining experience .
As a small business owner myself I really appreciate the attention to detail that is delivered on every level
We can t wait to come back again!

It was my first time visiting your lovely Quaint restaurant, but not my last!! The crab bisque was delightful as well as my pear salad. We had the pleasure of being waited on by Thor who was amazing as well.
