We love Moonstruck, the food, the service and the ambiance. It’s our favorite place to meet friends for a delicious dinner. The Parpardelle with mushrooms was scrumptious as was the flounder fillet over sautéed vegetables.

A great place to eat but It has a limited menu- Ambiance is a great attribute of this place. It is becoming one of my go to places in the area.

Only observation worth mentioning were arms on chairs were loose and a challenge for some of the older ones in my group.

We really enjoy this restaurant! They use interior glass walls to create small areas that are quiet and you can have a conversation. The food is great and the service very good. We love Sokol.

Food, drinks, ambiance, and timely/courteous staff made it a Valentine's to remember for my wife and I. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in every aspect. Hat's off to Moonstruck.

Valentine's Day Dinner! We were over an hour early and they had a cancellation and seated us immediately! Appetizer, dinner, and desserts were great! Definitely will try here again!

Was very disappointed in the meal on Valentine's day. The server was not really nice and never introduced himself to us. The caesar salad was very vinegary.....the other salad was nice and crisp. We both had the veal dish and it was not described on the menu the way it came out. We shared the oysters first and truly they were the only dish that we truly enjoyed.
The restaurant did NOTHING SPECIAL for Valentine's day and it was our Anniversary also which was told to them when making the reservation through Open Table
It would have been nice to give the customers something like chocolate covered strawberries or something complimentary for the occasion.
I would recommend the restaurant as I'd try it again and hopefully see an improvement in the food and service

We found this place online. We were pleased with environment, service and delicious food but some dishes were overpriced. I like seafood so I ordered scallops. The presentation was beautiful, but it was only 4 scallops for $31. We will come back to this place, but probably not so often, as we wish

I would not order the Trout again. I could smell the oil on the breaded Trout. My wife's Veal Rollatini was very good. App's were also very good, Meat balls & Clams.

Clean, quiet, "smart casual", excellent meals (try the baked trout when they have it), exemplary service, genuinely nice staff: receptionist, waiter, bartender, table setter. Can't wait until we go again.

Food was excellent. We actually arrived early for our reservation and even though the restaurant was packed they were able to get us right in. Everything was delicious. Tried stripped bass for the first time and really enjoyed it. Whatever the broth was in the clam appetizer was was really really tasty. We will absolutely be back.

Restaurant Week happened while my spouse had his 76th birthday. Instead of going into center city, we were pleased to see that Moonstruck was having their own $35 pre fix menu. Each of the courses was outstanding. Since it was a Tuesday night and we were dining early (before 6PM), the restaurant was quiet. One other table, in our section, was also celebrating a birthday, so we had a lovely conversation with those two patrons.

I am partial because Moonstruck is my favorite restaurant. This time I brought my children and their spouses. Everyone enjoyed the dining experience. The restaurant week crowd was in full force, but it did not affect the quality of the service.

Another wonderful dinner. An exceptional value as we visited for restaurant week. $35 for 3 courses and great selections. One member of our party ventured off the restaurant week menu and selected the tuna entree. He raved about it.

Moonstruck is our go to place. The interior is lovely, the food consistent and very good. It is one of the few decent restaurants anywhere near by. The daily prix fixe for 35$ is great value, not to be missed.

Never a bad meal. Always friendly service and each course served perfectly with no lags between them. Desserts are fresh, tasty, and sweet, sometimes too sweet especially the limoncello.

My wife spilled her wine on the tablecloth and server made no effort to assist, clean up, or change tablecloth!
