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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!
