Food and server were both excellent. I would have given a higher overall rating, but kitchen was so understaffed that we waited an hour for our entree. Not the server’s fault.
When it arrived, food was hot and delicious.
Wonderful outdoor ambience…great sharing plates (more would be even better)
Like every restaurant, they tried hard but were short staffed. I have no doubt that if fully staffed it would have rated higher.
Delicious lunch, fabulous service, incredible view.
Very fun and beautiful location! The food and service were excellent!
Have visited several times in the past, but this trip was very disappointing. The service was good but the onion soup was cold, which we sent back and after about 15 minutes it came back lukewarm. Had a steak dip sandwich which came out with the meat the temperature of coming straight from the refrigerator. Sent it back and after another 10 minutes it came back with a cold center. Talk with the manager and he comped the meal, which we did not eat and had us pay for our wine. Very disappointing with the food and that they felt they were being very kind to comp a meal that we didn't eat. Great location and the service was good, just very poor food quality. Will we go back? Not sure as food quality is important in a restaurant visit.
Great service, beautiful presentation, delicious food, gorgeous beach setting.
Beautiful location and great doors and service.
Delicious food, beautifully presented and exquisitely prepared. Each of our party had a different meal and all were wonderful and beyond our expectations.
Service was excellent also.
Lobster roll is one of the worst we’ve ever had.
All of the food was excellent, the ambience wonderful, and the service was professional and courteous. We had a great time!
Made a reservation but the restaurant is closed on Tuesdays. Why do you allow the creation of reservations on days you are not operating? Complete waste of time.
Service was super slow and waitress was clearly fed up with something. Food was good dispute soup being served cold.
The food was okay at best. Escargots not fresh and served cool. Had to reheat. Main menu took close to an hour. Duck was dry and little suace. Filet was good. Will not return.
This place was highly recommended to us by our friends and it did not disappoint! The food was great, but it was the service that went above and beyond! Will definitely recommend this to our friends and return next time we’re in Avila Beach! Highly recommended!
Incredible dining experience. Escargot were enjoyed by all as a starter. Fresh vegetables. Innovative daily specials. Wine guidance.
The hostess was rude and sarcastic, it’s not the first time.
We had three of the specials and they were all amazing. We loved the Humboldt Fog brûlée. I would definitely eat here again.
Loved everything about this sweet place! We will be back for both special occasions and everyday dining :)
Angee was fabulous at taking care of us.
Such a cute little restaurant in Avila Beach. They had live music which was so nice to hear! The food was delicious, especially the French onion soup. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. They have amazing desserts too.
Delicious lunch but all the food was brought at once so that the hot soup and sandwiches cooked off rapidly. Beautiful location and friendly servers. High tables & chairs on the patio are beautiful but the chairs are very uncomfortable.
We really enjoyed our evening at Blue Moon. We had a table outside and it was terrific. The staff were all very nice, attentive without being intrusive. The steak was cooked as ordered and very flavorful. The chicken was outstanding, juicy and well seasoned. Good wine list. We would go back here when in Avila and would recommend.
3out of 4 meals were excellent, the risotto was too plain
Great food and service as usual.
lovely brunch at Blue Moon, we will be back! thanks
We came here for our anniversary. We were sat a a wonderful outdoor table overlooking the ocean. The view and atmosphere is definitely delightful. Our server took our order quickly in fact so quickly I didn’t get a chance to read the whole menu. Despite taking our order quickly we waited over an hour for our dinner to arrive. People who ordered after us were served their dinner way before us. I don’t know if the server forgot to put in our order or what went wrong. She blamed in on a big party. It took so long to get our food that the other servers starting cleaning up to prepare to close the restaurant spraying down tables near us while we were eating. The food itself was well prepared and was delicious. We did feel rushed since they were already getting ready to close so we skipped ordering an anniversary dessert. I may try this restaurant again if we could have a different server as we liked the atmosphere, menu selections and quality of the food.
Amazing! Highly recommend.
Rosando was an exceptional server. One of the best meals all of us have ever had…and we all reside in Napa/Sonoma.
4 of us went to Blue Moon Over Avila for lunch and brought our dog. We had a very nice table with regular height chairs rather than the high ones. The lunch was very good as was the bottle of Tavel rose we washed it down with. All in all, a very nice experience.
This is the last meal that we had in SLO and it's a great one!!! We love the French cuisine here right by Avila Pier. Everything is good and tasty. It would be better if the clam chowder is not that salty. But, my friend said it is just perfect when you take it with the bread. Well...that's make everything perfect then! :)
Not sure what's going on with this place. The past few visits have resulted in food that is not consistent in quality. They are still dealing with making and keeping reservations (See Seinfeld on this point). Fact is, this place is not as good as it was pre - COVID.
Very nice for a romantic evening or just chill with a view. Good tasting food. Would come back!
Honestly, this place was just eh. They served us warm water, food wasn’t anything exceptional, all tables around us received their food before we did even though they were sat much later, food was fine but def not worth the prices. Lastly and most importantly the chairs are EXTREMELY uncomfortable. We would have ordered dessert but we literally couldn’t sit in those chairs any longer. Wouldn’t go back. Sorry.
The food and the atmosphere are wonderful. My wife and I have eaten there a few times and look forward to going back.
Attentive staff. Well prepared specials, lovely drinks. Even the house made lemonade was delicious!
Great location, excellent service, delicious food, vegan friendly
