    Service and food were spot on. The Apps came quickly and were very yummy. We ordered the December special Burger, they came cooked perfectly as we requested and were quite tasty. Given all the deliciousness we went for the dessert and were not disappointed. Having a chef come out and bring your food and ask you how the meal showed a personal level of care that each dish gets from the kitchen

    Wow! What a restaurant! The innovative menu was delicious with lots of options, even for the vegetarians in the group. The service was exceptional and we really appreciated that the chef came by the table to check in with our experience. We left thrilled that we found another amazing restaurant. Thanks!

    Moonshine is one of those places that has it all - the perfect ambiance, incredibly delicious food and the friendliest staff imaginable. Chef Asia is a unicorn powerhouse of culinary mastery who offers dishes you didn’t know you needed and quickly realize you can’t live without. I definitely hit this spot every time I’m in Boston!

    Not only is the food out of this world, all the staff at Moonshine + Chef Asia Mei are absolutely wonderful. Whenever I have friends in town I always take them to Moonshine. It feels like coming home + a friendly, welcoming, inclusive environment with truly the best food in Boston. Chef Asia Mei hand delivered our food to our table and came over to chat with us throughout the meal. Do not sleep on the party tots / party sprouts + my personal fav are the stuffing bites!

    Asia never disappoints. Even when Moonshine is packed, Asia regularly greets guests and is the epitome of kindness. Her latest creation Autumn Arancini Risotto Fritters might be the best thing I’ve ever tasted. We got a large order to go and had them today for lunch. Honestly, everything on the menu is incredible. I just can’t say enough good things about Moonshine or Asia.

    We had heard great things about this restaurant, and Moonshine was that and more. From the great staff greeting us at the door to the awesome food and amazing cocktails, Moonshine is now one of our go-to spots! If the mushroom soup is on the menu, you have to order it - out of this world!!!!

    Moonshine never fails to impress. Last night we enjoyed a fully vegetarian meal highlighted by two grande orders of the cauliflower tacos; a couple of amazing salads; and the seasonal pumpkin baklava. Service was impeccable and as always, Chef Asia was serving the floor and showing off her numerous talents.

    The team at Moonshine 152 deserves the highest praise. The food (especially mushroom bisque and party sprouts) Service was excellent and highly accommodating. A special thank you to Chef Asia for checking in with us, as well as every other table, to make sure their dining experience was satisfactory. As someone who comes from a service industry background, this place hits all the marks!

    This place doesn't look like much but it was a huge-welcome surprise with delicious, innovative food. Everything we ordered was incredible. It looks like a pub, super informal, but menu is super tasty-we loved the arancini balls, the beet dip, chicken and waffles, and tacos. Everyone was very happy! Meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

    I have been meaning to try this place for long time. When I finally did last night, I thought "what took me so long!" It checked all the boxes...excellent food, great service, super friendly vibe with a diverse crowd, music not too loud, fabulous bar with plenty of seats (with backs!), awesome, knowledgeable bartender (Peter) and personalized service from Asia, the very humble and grateful owner, who delivered our food. Portions were unexpectedly big too! After a regular size wedge salad and a regular order of the fried chicken wing s(both outstanding!), we were full. Can't say enough good things. I've already recommended it to friends and will certainly be back again soon.

    One of my favorite restaurants in Boston. Chose it for a visiting guest from Washington DC and he was impressed with the cocktails, food, and ambiance. The menu is a perfect mix of reliable staples and new dishes which never fail to impress. Service is attentive and knowledgeable; our server checked many things with the bar such as liquor brands on offer, which was above and beyond standard service. A fusion restaurant in all the best senses of the term. Highly recommend.

    My third time returning to Moonshine 152 for brunch and it never disappoints. The portions are generous, the dishes are creative and the atmosphere is great for chatting over a brunch cocktail. A reliable neighborhood fave that never stops innovating but also keeps classic favorites available. The tater tot poutine, mushroom and swiss omelet, and scallion pancake quesadilla are all things I find myself ordering again and again.
