You Wil NOT be sorry you went to "Over the Moon Cafe!"
Another wonderful meal. A birthday dinner with friends and family and it did not disappoint it actually exceeded previous trips to this wonderful small restaurant. The food was fantastic beautifully prepared and varied . My definition of an excellent restaurant is that you could sit down, order and then get up and move to another seat and eat someone else dinner and be just as pleased. Winners the vegetable lasagna, the salmon, the beet stack the creamed spinach the shrimp everything
And the service perfectly timed and gracious. We will be back.
Always excellent. It is so nice to come to a small, intimate place where they remember you plus the food is excellent! Service is great and you’re never rushed!
If there was a better place to have our 10 year Anniversary it would surprise the hell out of me. Wonderful, warm service and delicious food in an extremely romantic surrounding. Exception experience! If you have not been here you owe it to yourself to come and have a wonderful experience. If you have been here I can't possibly understand why you have not been back.
The food at Over the Moon is always superb, and Friday's meal was no exception. The spinach dip appetizer could probably be a meal in itself. The salmon was cooked exactly as ordered, and the waitress made a point of checking in to make sure of that. The clams, mussel and sausage was phenomenal. I've come to expect excellent food here, never having had anything else, but this meal was even better than I expected. All in all, this place can't be beat.
Our waiter was friendly and entertaining- the food was delicious!
We had lunch on a Thursday. We really enjoyed our dinning experience. The food is wonderful. If you like Mac and Cheese, you will think you have died and gone to haven. Also highly recommended is the Cuban sandwich. Our Sever, Thor, deserves special recognition for his knowledge of the menu, his attention to us and his ability to make you feel welcome. Lunch is only served a couple of days a week, so if lunch is not available to you, eat there for dinner. It is now our favorite restrauant in downtown Tacoma.
Date night with hubby and everything was delicious! Would highly recommend.
We absolutely loved this restaurant! It’s unique & all of the menu is homemade & so delicious! We Highly recommend! It will be one of our favorites & we will go back often! Loved all the food & it’s such a good find!
The food here is consistently excellent. I crave the zucchini lasagna--gluten free and better than any other lasagna I've ever had. The crab bisque is fabulous--also gluten free and better than any other crab bisque I've ever had. Their salads are also so good. Due to business travel, I've had lovely meals in San Francisco, New York, etc., and I would stack Over the Moon's food with any of them--probably higher.
Wonderful service, great food!
Great place. Only thing lacking is cocktails. Parking is limited.
Over the moon has the best monte cristo sandwich. The service was excellent and we found it easy to find parking at lunch. We will definitely be back!
My husband and I tried Over the Moon for a date night! It was awesome! It was sort of like a little hole in the wall, cute find kind of restaurant! The atmosphere was romantic and cozy! We enjoyed drinks, a super tasty meal and ended it with a yummy dessert!! It was perfect for a sweet night out on here town!! Would definitely go again!!
My out of town guests were impressed by the eclectic nature of the dining room. We were seated right away at a cozy table. The ambience was perfect for quiet conversation.
The crab bisque was exceptional as was the wedge salad and crab cake small plate. The sour dough bread was noteable.
The duck breast entree held up to previous rave reviews.
The service was flawless.
We had the crab cakes and mussels. Both excellent and perfectly prepared. Service was terrific!
Friendly, unrushed service, and great food. The bread pudding cannot be missed!
Unique setting. Sophisticated but cozy.
Best of all I could recommend anything on the menu with a pause.
A favorite spot I bring friends to and they always love it!
My friends and I always include dinner at Over the Moon on our annual trip to Tacoma. Enjoy it every time!
Love this place. Excellent place for lunch with friends.
Thor is so special and was the best server ever. I love Over The Moon and brought my Husband for Valentines Day. Congradulation for being the most romantic restaurant in the South Sound.
This place was awesome. Best way I could describe ambiance is "Tacoma Chic" and had a personality all to itself. Food was amazing, hosting was great and overall experience was refreshing.
Delicious food and amazing service every time!
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.
You can tell each dish is home-made, amazing flavor in every bite
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!
The wine selection is great, the service was wonderful and the food was AMAZING!
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!
An absolute jewel! Just a delightful experience on every level. Great food, great wine- like GREAT; charming service...just superlative all around.
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.
Great ambiance! Food was wonderful and the mock-cheesecake was amazing!
This is our go to place for special dinners. Whether for just the two of us or our whole family , we always get a fantastic meal and outstanding service.
We always have a good experience here. The waitress was attentive, congenial and gave us her personal attention in plating the dessert and gifts we brought.
Wonderful place for lunch or dinner.
Only advice, get express coffee maker.
Lucky enough to find Over the Moon on an Internet quest to find a place to celebrate a special occasion with my wife. Without making any puns, the Over the Moon café far and away exceeded our expectations.
We do live two hours away, but we WILL find a reason to return for dinner on Saturday night so I can request that we be served/entertained by Jennifer. She is charming and I understand why she stay on he job for 10 years. Who would want to leave? :) We described what type of wine we enjoy, and Jennifer picked out a bottle that matched perfectly. She listens.
My gluten-free wife LOVED the lasagna made with zucchini so much that she refused to share more than two bites. I had the special for the evening, an amazing pork chop. But my favorite dish was the beet stack. Fabulous
From our appetizers to the homemade vanilla ice cream, this was one of the BEST restaurant dinners we have enjoyed in several years. Glad we arrived early (5pm reservation) because the place filled quickly.
BTW-- We also found the flagship store for the local coffee we were served on Sunday morning and bought three pounds to take home. Best souvenir from a wonderful evening.
We also enjoyed walking the neighborhood before we can in for dinner. The shops (and the shopkeepers)and the charm of this corner of Tacoma changed many years of poor reputation that had kept me away. My loss
