I always enjoy a memorable evening when I celebrate at Moonstruck. It was my birthday and the dinner out at Moonstruck is how I prefer to celebrate.

We chose the restaurant over other places because we thought it offered enough options for my vegetarian girlfriend, so it was quite disappointing when we were handed a different menu than what we saw online. The overall experience was really brought down by the fact that we went out for Valentines Day and they had altered the menu for the occasion, but didn't advertise for it.

I went to the hostess to ask for accommodations, which they hesitatingly provided. However, they didn't really do a good job with explaining to her what she could have, and instead gave her a pen and paper and said write something. She wound up ordering spaghetti with marinara, which honestly was not really good at all. I tried it and totally agreed. She had a bite and had no taste for it afterwards, I dont really blame her. It really ruined the whole experience, I felt really bad that the whole hype of the holiday was ruined because she felt like it was her fault when it really was theirs.

She ordered a black raspberry sorbet after, which was very good. The worst part was they charged us $16 for some really mediocre spaghetti, even after knowing their unadvertised menu change caused a problem and also after noticing she did not enjoy it, eat it, and was really upset.

All of this could have been avoided if they advertised properly, like the other restaurants did when they said they'd have a special menu for the night. We chose them for their menu. We left feeling awkward and disappointed with the night. Unfortunate. Otherwise seemed like a nice place

We have been eating here for years, but the prices have increased dramatically. The food is OK, but there are so many other choices in our area, that we plan to go elsewhere for our next special occasion.

On Valentines Day, my wife and I had the striped bass and the lamb osso buco. The striped bass was good, but the osso buco she had was exquisite!

I do not like lamb. I ate most of her osso buco; it was the best lamb I've ever had in my life, I'd order it again for myself. I thoroughly enjoyed it. My wife also had the Valentines Special cocktail. It was good, too.

We go to Moonstruck once or twice a year and Valentines Day '18 was the best visit we've had in a long time.

Thank you.

We dine at Moonstruck several times per year. Our most recent outing was for Valentine's Dinner. We selected an early seating at 5pm to avoid the crowds. The restaurant was already humming with customers. The service was a bit slow...the food was delicious, per usual.

Ambiance you can’t find anywhere else, delicious food and gracious service in an unassuming neighborhood. We’ve come here for many years and it’s a favorite for its consistency and ability to roll with the times, yet retain everything that makes it a wonderful gem of a place.

There is nothing better on a rainy Saturday night than having an excellent dinner at Moonstruck. My wife and I had drinks at the bar, and then were escorted to our table by Toto, the restaurant owner. My scallop entree and her Tuna entree were both outstanding and cooked perfectly. Our server was very friendly and helpful, and even provided us with wine tastings when we had questions about some selections. Moonstruck continues to amaze us with its beautiful ambiance and high quality menu. We will be back soon!

I have been a customer of this restaurant for over 30 years. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is always excellent. I had the Noci which was very tender beef in a leek puree. My wife had pasta that was cooked perfectly. There is a good wine selection in a range of very fair prices. In an area not known for fine dining it is a very welcome oasis
