Due to COVID limitations on restaurants please understand that we have limited seating available. No table changes, or special requests can be made currently because of table limitations by Government Mandates. Table sitting times are 1&1/2 hours for parties 2 and 2 hours for parties of 3-4 people. We are not currently seating larger than parties of 4.
Crab Bisque with Tarragon
Chocolate cookie crust topped with thick caramel with pecans, finished with chocolate truffle layer. I call this a candy bar on a plate!
Jumbo Shrimp Pasta
Jumbo shrimp finished in our light creamy white wine sauce with shallots and basil. Tossed in linguine. (GF option available)
Limited menu options, that are creative, and delicious. Not flexible with GF options, we were actually scolded for requesting a substitute and finally accommodated. The desserts keep us coming back. They are a MUST❤️
The servers are oftentimes in trouble in the kitchen if they try to make any major changes to a dish. Because we only have 1 person cooking everyone's meals, changes to the menu items can make it difficult in our tiny little kitchen, so we do try to keep it to a minimum to avoid any disruptions to the flow! Our goal is always to ensure that everyone is taken care of to the best of our ability! Thank you for understanding and we hope to see you back soon
Great place, love the rib-eye, will definitely make this a place we will continually eat at in the future
Food was good and the service was polite and courteous with a casual environment. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
There selection of alcoholic beverages was limited to beer and wine.
Thank you so much! I am so sorry you must have missed our craft cocktail list! Next time you come in be sure to check it out.
I feel the staff made the difference from a 4 to a 5 star experience. All were warm and welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable. I loved the experience and will return for sure. Thank you all for doing such a great job.
Absolutely wonderful night! Beautiful ambiance and terrific food, the veggie lasagna was delicious! We WILL be back!
Visiting friends from out of state enjoyed a fabulous dinner.
I found Over the Moon on line when I was looking for a restaurant the that was
unique and quaint with food really good. We went to the restaurant for our
anniversary and found it to be better than advertised, it was fantastic. Ambiance,
quaint, unique, it was all there and the food and service was super great.
My compliments to the chef and to all of the crew at Over the Moon. The name really fits. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Fantastic! The service and food were incredible. Easily my favorite restaurant in Tacoma. Their options for people with dietary restrictions were well thought out.
We are here for our wedding anniversary. They had a rose and card waiting for us at our table. There was also a cute little box full of love notes written by past guests. Cute, eclectic ambiance. Food and drinks were great.
Great service/food, wonderful staff, sweet and thoughtful touches. Would definitely recommend.
The experience was great, the chairs were a squeeze to get into without bumping the table next to us.
great food and staff. Wonderful atmosphere and ambiance.
My good friends Clark B day was the reason we were there.
I live this place… best in Washington State in my opinion.
Jennifer was amazing as well!!!
Hallie was a great server. Love the small dark environment! Food was insanely good
We love Over The Moon! The staff is efficient, friendly & knowledgeable. The menu is exquisite and all of our meals were expertly prepared and quite delicious. OTM is a great date destination, as well as a wonderful atmosphere to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries.
Always a favorite place. Food is always sopt on, service attentive and kind, ambience relaxing and special. Dining at Over the moon is always a very enjoyable experience. A relaxing dinner w a good friend. I had the wedge salad, always a favorite. I tired the chicken breast and my friend had the duck breast, they ate every morsel, I had enough for leftovers. We shared a bottle of cab, which was delish. We ended the meal with the bread pudding, outstanding. OTM is the place to go for a lovely dining experience. Cheers!
Staff made special efforts to acknowledge our anniversary, and the entire dining experience truly went above and beyond our expectations (which were already high, based on past experiences). Food was as outstandingly delicious as ever. We could not recommend Over the Moon more highly!
Make a reservation for this place because my date told me it's the most romantic setting she'd ever been taken.
Always one of my favorite places! Great food and atmosphere and I love reading the little notes that people have left about their visits!

My Wife & I dined for our Anniversary on a Saturday Night, 8pm. We've been before and it's terrific. It's small, cozy, romantic. It has two levels, upper with about 9 tables, lower with 5 tables. These are mostly 2-seat tables, with maybe a few that can seat 4 or able to configure some together for 6.
First thing to note. This is half a block up from McMenamin's as well as a few other bars and/or places to eat. It's essentially in an alley, part of it's unique appeal, BUT parking, certainly on this Saturday is tremendously challenging! We circled the blocks a couple times before we parked three+ blocks away that required a walk back up the steep hill after dinner. (okay, I walked up and drove down to pick my wife up).
The Menu is modest but a nice variety and side options. My wife is a pescatarian and there are enough options for her. The have a custom cocktail list, a plentiful wine list too. We started with complimentary bread then with two starters to the point we were too full to order an entre. We both got a salad and shared a bowl of Crab Bisque and a bottle of wine. All the food and drink was excellent! I think the prices are a bit high, but it's such a relatively small place I'm thinking they need to bump the prices up to offset limited seats and turnover. A limited desert menu, but nice.
Staff was/is exceptionally nice, personable and efficient. We'll definitely be back!
This is our anniversary tradition that’s been going on 3 years. And we will always come back no matter where we are in life. The staff are courtesy and the food is excellent. The steak was cooked perfectly to my liking and a must get is the crab bisque!
I love Over the Moon. I always enjoy any meal I have there - excellent food and great service.
If you want the best godd***edmeal of your life this is where you go, babies! <3
We ate here last night before a comedy show - honestly, we chose it simply because it was open relatively late, was nearby, and had a reservation available. Will ABSOLUTELY be coming back. Like many reviews suggest, the dining area is a tad cramped and you can definitely smell the kitchen, but food and service are so stinking outstanding that I hardly noticed. Our server was kind, attentive, and offered great suggestions. Our group ordered the cheezy, wine sauce soaked sourdough with apricot jam and I literally bought my own ingredients the following morning because it is now (and likely forever) a comfort craving. The ribeyes looked phenomenal and my ragu was out of this world. Our server was happy to accommodate my noodle preference which was the cherry on top. I sincerely cannot wait to dine here again. 11/10 would recommend.
All was great the food was excellent. Thought it wasn’t too overpriced for anything. The portions were very generous!
First time. Cute place. Came here for our anniversary. They provided a card and a beautiful rose. The food was really good and the service was great. However I was not expecting it to be so small with that many people so close. It freaked me out a little. It was also to smoky from the kitchen and very little ventilation. We were seated close to the kitchen so we didn't stay long. My eyes began to get irritated. I know how hard it is for restaurants right now but this is a little to close for my comfort. Maybe I'll visit again on a day when it's less busy.
Service was excellent, dinner was delicious.
This is a great place to retreat to enjoy great food, atmosphere and service. I would highly recommend this establishment. I am eagerly awaiting my return here.
As always. Perfection
Professional chef opinion: great food. Great service. Great drinks selection. Hidden gem.
Great place for romantic dinner! Been several times and always great!
Fantastic ambiance. The server was super friendly and the card for our anniversary was an unexpected surprise. Food was delicious. We will definitely be back.
I took my love here to celebrate his 36th birthday. We’ve been to quite of few restaurants as we like to go new places and experiences new things. Over the Moon did not disappoint. First of all, I spent a good majority of the evening tearing up and crying reading the notes left at the table from previous guests. Reading them with my love contributed even more to our special night. Gave us even more of a reminder why we love each other. Our waitress was beautiful and amazing, I wish I remembered her name but she has blonde hair and had it pulled back in a low bun. She was amazing and every time we (I) asked for suggestions she was happy to give her opinion. The food/dessert was amazing! Literally AMAZING. I can’t wait to go back! We had the wedge salad shrimp and fromage to start, rib-eye and duck for entrees, and the cheesecake for dessert. Even the drinks! Love love love!
A quiet little cafe, with excellent food and service. We arrived a little early, but our table was ready. They knew we were celebrating an anniversary so they had a red rose, rose pedals and a card set out for us. Would highly recommend them.
Great date night place.
Tina was knowledgeable, prompt, and friendly. Definitely worth the experience. Love it. Hardly wait until next time. I know , I should try to keep this establishment a secret so it does not become too high in demand!!!
Wonderful food and service!
My husband and I ate here the year they opened (2001) for a special night out when our first child was a year old. We loved it and always meant to come back, but…… kids; ya know. We’re now empty nesters and just visiting again for my birthday - 20 yrs later! - and the food was just as delicious as we remembered it! We definitely won’t be waiting another 20 years to dine at Over the Moon Café again!!!
