Moonstruck is the best and classiest restaurant in Northeast Philly. The food is prepared perfectly, and the servers are friendly and professional. I especially enjoy the BYOB nights on Wednesday and Sunday when I can bring my own bottle of wine.

Another fabulous evening at one of our favorite restaurants. Alexis Lee was our server- she was so attentive, personable & had a great sense of humor. Her descriptions of the various menu items were right on point and she made some great recommendations as well. Thanks to the chef for modifying a couple of entree’s because of our allergies !

I used to live in close proximity to Moonstruck, yet last night was my first visit. Honestly, it was worth the shot, as the restaurant felt cozy with a bit of understated luxury. The low-capacity occupancy, considering Covid, was more than convenient, as the restaurant felt almost exclusive. Rightfully so, because we kept hearing bits of nearly-familial banter among the staff and customers, who were undoubtedly regulars. The food looked deceptively simple, while every bite felt simultaneously light and rich. The cocktails weren’t too shabby, either. Albeit pricey, Moonstruck is worth every penny; it is in the same league as Mercato BYOB, Morimoto, and even Monsieur Marcel. See the pattern here? Mmm... A delicious date night, indeed!

Love this restaurant, been there several times over the pandemic. This restaurant was ready made for the social distancing. It is set up in pods of 4 tables, now only using 2 tables per pod. The food is always very good, always have specials. Never disappointed.

Moonstruck is one of all around best restaurants in Philadelphia. The food and wine are always top quality and the presentation and the waiter's constant attention add to the overall superiority of the restaurant. The deserts are elegant. And Todo's present and mingling with his patrons adds to the prestige of the establishment. I take great pleasure in recommending Moonstruck to any of my friends and colleagues.

The angel hair pasta with Bolognese sauce was delicious as well as the liver, bacon and onion which is my favorite.
I had an Aperol Spritzer which was very good, not too sweet. I will order it again.
Love the ambience, very relaxing and romantic!
