    This was our second dinner while we have been here for two weeks. We always try to eat here when in town on vacation. A thoroughly enjoyable, unrushed dining experience. I highly recommend dinner at The Blue Moon.

    We had a fantastic meal! Our server Jess was great. Just the right amount of attentiveness. We celebrated my husband’s birthday & he loved everything about Blue Moon. He had the spicy Mexican Shrimp cocktail & I had the grilled octopus as appetizers. Excellent. My husband had the Lamb Rack & I had the Pork Chop. Both were superior. No dessert. Large portion size. Too much for me. Next time no appetizer so I can finish my whole meal. No complaints here!!!

    My wife and I were in the Rehoboth area for an overnight and were looking for a “nice” dinner spot. Blue Moon fit the bill! Be aware that parking is very difficult in the area during the day and evening: allow extra time and expect to walk a bit. The restaurant and staff were excellent. Cocktails and food were great (we both had seafood), service was prompt and friendly. Definitely $$$ pricing but a good value for a quality dinner experience. The only reason “Ambiance” got 4 stars was that seating, especially on the porch area, is rather cramped.

    We’ve been here several times before and always had great dinners but this was our first time back after pandemic Our appetizers and cocktail were fabulous. Had the l roasted oysters and the octopus. But Disappointed in our dinners and dessert. They were just ok and not the usual wonderful meals. Very disappointed

    Mother’s Day lunch. Ordered the eggs Benedict. Very nice. Server was very attentive. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time from the kitchen. Our table was on the front glass porch. It was lovely to look at passersby. I will return to this restaurant, for another meal, probably a dinner.

    Massively disappointing considering the reputation this place has of being a high end staple of Rehoboth. Food was not seasoned and was tasteless. This is a restaurant that Rehoboth residents either love or hate and I can see why. This place should be so much better for the price point.

    The servers and kitchen were a bit overwhelmed as the restaurant was full the evening we went. The servers did all they could and the host also helped to accommodate. The food although arriving quite late was delicious. The wine selection was great too. The restaurant may be easier to enjoy fully on a less busy night. The management needs extra help during the weekends in the kitchen and waitstaff. We will be back.

    Visited yesterday 4/19 for my wife’s birthday. First visit based on reviews. Moved in area 2 years ago and try new places when we can. From greeter at door, to hostess, to waitress…EXCELLENT. Friendly and personable. The food was OUTSTANDING…crab bisque appetizer and entrees (stuff shrimp and blackened Sea Bass). Tropical drinks and desert topped it off. Close seating wasn’t a negative…Will return soon…
