As usual the food was outstanding. Enjoyed the grilled scallop salad and to-die-for lasagne.
Be sure to try the Meyer lemon dessert confection--heavenly!
Everything was great as always! However, I didn’t particularly care for the linguine special with fennel and crab. My husband tried it and loved it so he ended up sharing his lasagna.
Notice there's a number of new staff - probably need a little more training and/or be more attentive. Otherwise, foods good.
Food was great but server seemed hurried and uninterested.
Small portions, very expensive
Restaurant was a bit under staffed but waiter worked very hard and managed to be pretty responsive. Portion sizes small given the prices. Food quality was good but not great, Wish had more CA wine selection and wine by the glass pours was smaller than standard (perhaps 5 ounces),
We have been going to Pasta Moon for over 10 years and now our young children are asking for it regularly. Their special menu items are nice and worthwhile. Although their Fritto Misto have been shrinking in size and protein items over time (now we barely get a few calamari and mostly onion slices or fennel). Shared between the 5 of us (3 are young children), I never even tasted any of the calamaris - and they used to have small shrimps which now is not in the dish at all.
Otherwise, the children loved their butter pasta (pasta is home made) - and asked for a 2nd helping. Our dishes were good also (risotto and crab linguine).
We were in HMB for 5 days and Pasta Moon and Dad’s Luncheonette were definitely our favorites.
3 hosts at the door all trying to help you but it’s chaos. One of them is a rude, grumpy man double checking everything two young women is doing and talking over.
Service is by an overly energetic waiter. Asks questions, but doesn’t listen to answers. You end up with drinks you did not order and get charged for them. Your order of a salad and two pastas get verified three times, well because he wasn’t listening. Wonder what he was scribbling to that pad.
Food? Mediocre ravioli soaking in melted butter. Huge lasagna compensating for dull taste.
Loud. Tables are so close to each other you can hear conversation from both tables. Good luck having a relaxed chat with your company.
We were staying at the Ritz and ventured into downtown HMB. This restaurant was exactly what we were looking for! The specials were amazing and so was their lasagna! The owner was so nice and welcoming! Would definitely recommend if you are in the area!
Everything was wonderful. Always a pleasure to dine here!
It was Valentines Day lunch and, while many tables in unused rooms in the back did have a simple small vase with flower(s) on the tables, the tables with patrons had no special decoration at all. Overpriced.
The service was excellent. Greeter in the front was cordial and the busboy and waiter were extremely attentive, prompt and friendly. Food was, as we've come to expect here, well prepared and delicious. Good choice of wines and warm, hospitable ambiance. We'll be back again when visiting the Peninsula and the coast. In summary, very well worth it.
Good food, good service. Ordered a combination not on the menu and was graciously accommodated.
This is a favorite go to restaurant for everyday and special occasions.
Pasta moon was amazing from the ambiance, to the excellent waiter,and the well seasoned food. I have no complaints at all it was the perfect date setting.
Excellent, as always - food, cocktails and service.
Unfortunately, Pasta Moon didn’t live up to its reputation. Good things were sausage pizza, and Italian bread soup. Both were delish! Lasagna way too salty and cheesy. Clam appetizer had no flavor. Service was nonexistent, and when we arrived we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday. No dessert arrived after dinner. Not worth the money spent. Won’t be coming back.
We went with another couple and had a a delicious meal. The size of the salmon stuffed with crab and the cioippino were a little smaller than expected, but all the food we ordered was delicious: Fritto Misto (we 4 shared it); Pappardelle Pancetta; plus the two specials. The desserts were divine: butterscotch pudding and meyer lemon parfait. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. All round a lovely time. The restaurant is broken up into several different rooms -- making a large restaurant seem smaller and friendlier than it would be otherwise.
We had a reservation at 7:15, yet had a long wait for a table.
We had a lovely birthday dinner. There were 4 in our party. The reservation was seamless and the staff thoughtfully reserved a table in the quieter part of the restaurant The margarita I ordered was okay but nothing special. The pasta however was outstanding. I tasted 3 of the pasta dishes ordered. Both the parppardelle & tagliatelle were absolutely delicious. I also had the trout salad as my entree. The fish was tasty with free salad greens & a light dressing that did not overwhelm the fish. Our waiter was very attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely return to Pasta Moon
Ideal to meet or take out of town friends who are not Half Moon Bay residents.
Hand made Pasta. Local ingredients. Interesting menu. Don't miss this one
Fritti Misto - Calamari and shrimp way over cooked - chewy! Crab Linguine - bland. Lasagna -More like a spicy Chili with flat noodles; Pasta Moon was recommended ; we were very disappointed!
Love Pasta Moon. Have been going there for years & am never disappointed. Love their fish, their pasta, pizza & salads. My husband loves their chicken.
Great service & food.
Always have a.nice meal here.
Pasta Moon in HMB: So great pasta and great fish and seafood. They always provide fresh home baked breads, olive oil and balsamic. We love share family style. It's basically our only restaurant in HMB. Excellent value for quality dining. Warm, low-key ambiance.
Chill at PM and don't fight traffic driving back the SV.
Chicken entree was really good
A very nice experience . A little over priced for an everyday dinning, but would certainly return for a special occasion.
Food was great...lasagna and a ribeye. Our waitress was busy and our drink order wasn’t right but we survived. Small two top beside another 2 top and a 6 top offered little privacy in the way of conversation but again...we came through. All in all it was great food, good atmosphere, and reasonably priced. Would go back again
Just a consistently excellent restaurant over the years.
