    Shrimp and grits were ok. Tasso gravy was a little thick and heavy and didn’t like to pick out the shrimp shells on the tails. I won’t order that again. Caesar salad was delicious and my friends loved the scallop app! Cosmos were great! Service was good. They were out of Tito’s vodka, fish special, crab cakes which was disappointing. We had fun but not the same experience I had when we go in the summer! They know how many reservations they have so why not have enough food to accommodate!

    First, I must say it was NYE. So, you expect things to be hectic. My son and I each ordered the file mignon, and I was as if they split one piece of meat or rather the entire order between us. For the price, it was not worth it, no matter how good it tastes.

    We both had the scallop appetizer which was excellent. Then one of us had the seafood fettuccine and the other the mussel dish. Again each was excellent. The cake dessert with ice cream was a little dry but very flavorful; the creme brûlée was very good. Our criticism would be that the service was rushed. There was little time given to us to digest one course before the next was served and it got quite noisy so the ambiance should just be rated as OK. All in all excellent food but if you want a more European type dining experience I would explicitly ask for some time between courses. We would certainly dine here again and make that request.

    We had a fabulous evening at Blue Moon. The ambience was just my style, cozy with low lighting, lit candles and great quiet jazz music. We had a table of 8, and everyone loved their choices. Several of us got the Beef Short Rib with creamy mashed potatoes & veggies---wonderful comfort food for a cold night. Several others ordered the fish special and it looked wonderful. Our server checked on us faithfully, and we enjoyed creme brûlée and French pastries. We will make Blue Moon a regular stop for us!

    Our guests enjoyed a romantic & fabulous 20th anniversary celebration thanks to the efforts of Bluemoon Bistro! They raved about the evening over breakfast service this morning noting they simply could not decide which beignet they loved more of the two offerings they sampled. :) We always recommend Bluemoon Bistro to our foodie crowd as the restaurant provides the atmosphere, the service and the cuisine that makes ANY occasion.... celebratory. Thanks Ashley, Chef J and staff for making memorable moments for guests of Inn on Turner <3
