Excellent. Marcus was fantastic server and everything was just perfect. Food was delicious and while Tahoe is always a bit pricey, this restaurant is very reasonable! Delicious rib eye and prawns with potatoes and asparagus for $32.
Atmosphere (outside) was great. Comfortable chairs! Thankyou for not making us sit at another covid-induced picnic table!!

Food, cocktails and wine were very good, as was our server. Good value, as well. One of the best Caesar Salads I’ve enjoyed in a long time. Tahoe was a bit smoky from the forest fires, but we still enjoyed being there and will return to Bear Moon again.

Had a nice time and service was friendly and good. Yes, it was near the pool but not horrible as others have commented. Was happy a group of 8 could all sit together and they took reservations so we didn't have to wait 1.5 hrs + to eat.

I wish I had read more reviews - very limited menu and we were very very disappointed. It can be hard to get a reservation for 5 in Tahoe & I was excited to find this place. My husband was looking forward to the salmon, and I was expecting more vegetarian options. They only have pizza, burgers, and 2 specials available. They need to update their website and also open table menu.

Outside dining due to COVID. Our table was right next to the hotel pool. The gate to the pool was just beyond our table and slammed shut every time someone entered or exited. This happened more times than I chose to count. It would have been better if this table didn’t exist. Very distracting. The food was awesome. Ahi won ton tacos, wedge salad and margarita pizza. The beignets were yummy!

A lot of menu changes due to Covid. All of the precautions are in place. The reservation system showed an amazing menu however, due to different issues the menu is very limited. Mostly tacos, flatbread and sandwiches. Not what I expected from the open table listing.

Granted South Lake Tahoe is opening up so I should not be too critical. Booked on open table and then went to the restaurant's website to confirm menu etc. It was indicated that there was valet parking so we were pleased as it is a busy area and it was a Friday evening.
Also saw that there was a vegan menu available on request so we were pleased as one in our party had food restrictions.
On arrival, we were told that there was no valet parking (perhaps due to COVID19 but no explanation was given and we were directed to the public lot across the street or to park off site and take the shuttle back.
When we made it to the restaurant, there was no Vegan Menu, and a limited menu at that. There was not one option for a vegan meal sadly and they could not leave the "cheese" out of one of the vegetarian options as they were pre-prepared and "frozen." That in itself made all of us question the quality of the food.
The check-in desk looked very cluttered and disorganized w/ silverware, napkins and menus lying about.
Again, we realize this is a difficult time for everyone due to closures and shelter in place and then reopening, but this was disappointing and we probably will not visit again.

Great hidden gem! Outside patio dining area has views of the lake and makes for a beautiful sunset dinner. Noise level is high, if a lot of people are in the pool which is right next to you, but with that view, who cares! MUST get the peach cobbler...to die for!

We did not eat there as we asked for outside seating and was told nothing available. Offered to wait at bar but was told they had a seat in a corner in a room that was holding a special event. We were then told that there were other places that had outside seating and we can go there. At that point we left and found a more accommodating restaurant!

We made reservations there for 4th of July due to the location. They were having a buffet only that night. Fine. Got there and it was the most overpriced crappy bbq buffet I’ve ever seen. For $42/person, I would expect more than 9 items to choose from. The service was atrocious despite the serves only having to handle drink orders. Beautiful location, but I will not go back.

Another example of a very good restaurant we wouldnt have tried if they weren't on opentable. A lil tough to park, a lil tough to get into, but good food & service. Pig wings, ahi tacos, fish & chips, burger, chicken strips all worth going back for.

We were visiting from Texas and this restaurant was right down the road from where we were staying. We booked a reservation on Open Table, but got there earlier than unexpected and they were more than happy to already seat us. The server was very friendly and gave us all kinds of tips and recommendations about the area. The happy hour specials were great and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant! The patriots and chiefs game was on, so everybody was cheering and excited. All around fun experience!

Menu was much more limited than advertised on the OpenTable website. A member of our received his drink in a glass that was cracked. When he pointed it out to our server, the server said to just go ahead and drink his drink and then he’d get him a new glass. Another member ordered his steak Med-rare. Hmos meal arrived well after the rest of the table (there was 9 in our party) and his steak was well done. This was not a positive experience for our first and last visit

We ate at Bear Moon for a birthday dinner for my mother on a Friday night. The restaurant is very casual with a log cabin theme and it has some outdoor patio seating- however we sat inside due to the outside temp and air quality (smoke from fires). Our server Kevin was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. The food is terrific if you are looking for some comfort food. If you go save room for the peach cobbler; maybe the best I have ever had. Parking is a bit challenging but we went for the valet and it cost $5 (tip) which seemed not only convenient but reasonable considering parking in the marina is at a premium in the summer. If you are looking for elegant or romantic then this is probably not for you. We had a great experience though

Had a very nice pre-concert dinner with my daughter. The outdoor patio overlooking the lake is great, and the indoor seating and the bar area are nice as well. We were in a hurry, so we just had salads and Havana sandwiches with fries — both were excellent. Cannot say enough good things about the staff — waiter, bartender and hostess were all super friendly, attentive and helpful. Would definitely dine here again.
