Over The Moon Cafe
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.

Dinner Friday - Saturday: 4:30pm - 10:00pm
Delicious food in a cute environment
I'd been to Over the Moon many times for dinner but this was my first visit for lunch and I enjoyed it very much. This was a business lunch meeting and Over the Moon is a really good place for that: excellent food at a range of prices, attentive but unobtrusive service, busy but not at all too loud for conversation. I'll be back for wonderful dinners but now I have another reason to go!
Had a very nice dinner here the other night. My husband ordered the short ribs - which were excellent. I had the salmon - another great choice - cooked to perfection. My son ordered the pork bolognese - tasty, but not quite as good as the short ribs.... Didn't try his date's meal which was a vegetarian pasta dish that she said was very good. Cozy, nice spot to dine. Highly recommend.
Food and service were outstanding....as usual....one of our favorite restaurants in Tacoma.
Over the Moon Cafe is one of my favorite dining spots, barring none!
We were delighted to find this place! Very cozy, great food but quite reasonably priced. Love that it’s family owned and has weathered the ups and downs of the area for nearly 20 years. Wonderful people, very friendly and accommodating. We are already planning to go back even though it’s an hour away from our local area.
Wonderful afternoon lunch. The food was terrific, the service was spot-on (attentive and pleasant, but not intrusive). The atmosphere was quirky, fun and the focus of some of our conversation. The price was a little higher than I usually pay for Saturday lunch, but this was special and worth it!
The food was excellent, as always. The service was great, too--as always
We had a nice evening at Over the Moon and would recommend it. Our biggest regret were the desserts which were marginal at best. Our minor ambiance complaint would be that the table we sat at was seated adjacent to the hallway to the kitchen and restroom which was drafty and a bit noisy. Otherwise, the appetizers and all the meals at our table were delicious save mine. Sadly, I wouldn’t recommend the Ratatouille which was what I ordered and it was cold and not very flavorful. We had a nice bottle of wine and it was reasonably priced. Our server was prompt and polite. We all agreed we would make a return trip.
Love this restaurant and the owner, Deanna is a gem!
Good food and service. I just put noise level as "energetic" because of the table across from us was noisy. I've dined here other times, and the noise level was much less.
My sisters and I had dinner there for the first time after reading reviews, and agreed it was the perfect place. Very cozy and comfortable with wonderful aromas coming from the kitchen. The menu offered enough variety that we each wanted something different and everything tasted homemade. The short ribs were the star but so were the roasted vegetables that came with the sage chicken. Our waitress was very patient as we lingered over dinner and wrapped our meager leftovers with great care. We couldn’t leave anything behind. It’s a little tricky to find even with gps, but now we know and look forward to another opportunity to be in the area.
Fantastic decor - , small and cozy . Excellent food and service.Visitng from out of town , great find. Had lunch because waited too long for dinner reservations on a Saturday night. Loved it as did my teen and my elderly aunt. ! Lunch was delicious and creative. They had a nice quiet area which was nice for my Aunt who is hard of hearing. Thank you.
A little pricey..but good food..nice smbience...Love the decore!! Ladies room is an experience!!
Great restaurant, truly enjoyed our experience. Went there to celebrate wedding anniversary, great service and the food was delicious. Really enjoyed the atmosphere.
Very romantic date night restaurant
Absolutely great place! Food was just a little pricey but well worth it. Quiet and romantic
Yum but I was super sad they do not have the lasagna
Love the atmosphere and food was great! A lovely restaurant for a intimate dining.
The intent was to dine else where, then I realized the location we initially planned to dine at was closed during our time. Then we happened upon this amazing place. We live in Seattle and were in Tacoma for a show. Our experience with the waitress was super, the food was amazing and we really liked the background music as well! I will have no problem making the drive just to enjoy the atmosphere and food! I can not say enough good things about this place and the staff.
Love this place! Great atmosphere. I highly recommend the ragu!
Normally the food is excellent. This time my order was not done well or per my request.
What an outstanding find amongst very mediocre restaurants in Tacoma.
Our meal was outstanding from appetizers to dessert.
Our dinners were excellent. Over the Moon knows how to use herbs and spices! The wine was also excellent.
Delightful restaurant tucked away in downtown Tacoma. Highly recommend for any occasion - it won’t disappoint.
I love the atmosphere here. Generous portions of delicious food for a reasonable price!
Great food, excellent service, good value!
We love romantic dinners or just chance to catch up with old friends. Wonderful ambiance for either. Also like convenience to be able to make booking via Open Table app.
Took my wife here for a date night. I have lived in Tacoma for over 40 years and had never been here before. I was amazed to learn that OTM has been in business for 18 years at this location.
The food was amazing. We ate so much. We couldn't stop. We ended up taking our dessert home and eating it for breakfast the next morning.
We can't wait to again.
My fiance and I really enjoyed our meal at Over the Moon Cafe. We had the crab bisque to start, and it was delicious. He had the steak for dinner and I had the duck breasts. The steak had incredible flavor and was perfectly cooked. The cherry sauce that the duck was served with was insane! I love the cozy ambiance of this restaurant. It has a whimsical feel to it and is very intimate. We will definitely recommend it and come back again.
Perfect place for a date and the food is amazing. I would highly recommend this place.
This place is great for lunch and dinner. We love it!
Great service, rare charming Tacoma location, delightful ambience for casual or dressed dining. Then there’s the food to pull it all all together. Terrific downtown choice.
Very nice lunch. Food was fresh and local. Seasonal menu was great and offered great variety.
Great spot. Glad we found it! Very eclectic decor adds to the charm and ambiance Food was terrific and service superb. Can’t wait to go back.
We were a large group with reservations, but there appeared to be only one water for the entire restaurant. We waited 25 minutes to order, and 45 minutes more for our food. We love this restaurant and hope this was just a fluke.
More and more my wife and I judge a restaurant by how crowded and noisy it is, especially if it advertises itself as a high end experience and we are with friends. We were seated early when Over the Moon Cafe was relatively empty and quiet. By the end of the meal it was full and the noise level was at the upper end what we find comfortable for carrying on a conversation around the table. Would not want it any noisier, but overall it was a very positive dining experience with flavorful food and attentive, friendly service. We'll be back.
Had a great lunch as always. Dinner is more romantic but lunch with the Girls is so fun here. The two guests I brought to lunch loved their food and the atmosphere. Home Run!
Service was fantastic!! Thank you!! We’re coming back soon an telling friends!
The food was amazing, the service was impeccable and the ambiance was cozy and romantic. Took my boyfriend for the first time for his birthday and and we were both really impressed. I had the duck and it was prepared perfectly! The strawberry and cucumber salad was among the best I've ever had! Will definitely be returning!
This was our first time here. Everything was amazing. The ambiance, service and food were top notch. We will definitely be back and will recommend to everyone.
