Under The Moon Cafe Ratings and Reviews
This was a cute little place with an eclectic decor of various antiques and knick-knacks. The menu had a variety of interesting items as well. Unfortunately, everything was rather mediocre. Nothing bad, just nothing I ever needed to eat again. Very disappointing.
Atmosphere and food made our biannual together that much better! Food came quickly even on a Saturday night. The only downside was parking. Allow 15 extra minutes to find a parking spot in Bordentown. Otherwise we had a very nice evening and experience at Under the Moon with a party of 8.
This was my first visit to Under the Moon, and it won't be the last. Since it was the weekend before Halloween the place was decorated to the fullest and the staff were all in costume. The food was amazing and the staff were all friendly and accommodating. We brought wine, even though it wasn't easy to determine that the restaurant was BYOB. We look forward to going back many times.
This was an unfortunate choice. Our waitress was very attentive for the first five minutes, and the last five minutes. In between, the service was about as poor as could be. We asked our waitress, another waitress, and two bus boys for water before we got any. Our appetizers took over a half hour because, we were told, they ran out of soup and a “new batch” had to be made. Interesting because there were only 4 other tables occupied when we arrived. We asked the waitress for 5 more minutes to look over the menu. We saw her 20 minutes later. My husbands chicken was not just undercooked, it was literally raw. They took it back to the kitchen and didn’t come back until the rest of us were completely finished our meals. When they brought it back out, it was only about a third the amount left on the plate. We did not have to pay for the chicken dinner and were told that the kitchen was just overwhelmed.
This place is consistently quality in every area. Food is well cooked and tasty. Service is wonderful and welcome. Desserts are big and a must have. It is a neighborhood gem in the heart of Bordentown City. We return again and again for the tapas, ever changing seasonal specials, well cooked courses, atmosphere and friendly feel.
We had a great dinner and an excellent waitress. Food was delicious and arrived in a timely manner. We chose 4 different entrees and they were all very tasty and well-prepared. Would definitely go back and recommend Under the Moon to our friends and family. Thank you Open Table for helping us find a neat place to enjoy......our Lisa was very helpful....
7/28 - Everything was excellent! We had great appetizers, food and desert (chocolate cream pie was a fluffy pillow of delight). Our server Tina was the best! Highly recommended if you want great, creative food in an eclectic atmosphere where the staff really cares.
Ecletic is the word that best sums up this place. The food, ambiance, decor - all eclectic. Have been numorous times and taken lots of friends, all of whom have loved it. Great food and atmosphere combine to make it always a really enjoyable evening. You have to try it to believe it !
Our fourth time eating there the ambiance is querky, art decko fun and the food is of high quality and the service is very good. The selection of appetizers and tapas is very good and the specials are interesting, but the menu the fourth time around is a little limiting. They serve a crostini with a delicious herb oil mix before the meal and even their iced deal is a flavor full brew. The selection of deserts is amazing!
We thoroughly enjoyed the total experience! Our server Kim was knowledgeable and asked the chef if there were any doubts. There was a person with severe fruit allergies and I myself have celiac. Everyone was so accommodating. We definitely plan on coming back!
I decided to book this restaurant for my hubby's birthday dinner due to the great reviews on here. We were not disappointed. We decided that we were going to try a number of the appetizers and tapas so that we could save room for dessert. Our waitress Tina was phenomenal. She noticed that a large party next to us was making it difficult to enjoy our meal to the full extent and offered for us to move without us saying a word. We sampled the artichoke rice balls, chorizo sliders, empanadas, short ribs and polenta fries. They were all delicious, with the empanadas and polenta fries being real stand outs. For desert we had the strawberry crepe cake and chocolate peanut butter cheesecake. My husband loved his crepe cake and if you are a peanut butter lover you need to try the cheesecake. The food combined with the eclectic decor were great and we will definitely be back!
The restaurant Under The Moon had an eclectic menu I enjoyed the different flavors The food was prepared with authentic seasoning and was well made . I like that they offer vegetarian dishes . The service was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxing and inviting
funky, understated. understand that NONE of the glassware, silverware, tables, chairs match each other, even on any given table- this is casual gathering space, with a great vibe. The involvement of the staff definitely adds to the charm.
The real story of course is the cuisine. The food is amazing in its variety and depth of flavor. We've been through the ShortRibs, Salmon, Ropa Vieja, Argentinian Meatloaf through our visits and have always been satisfied, and have many more items we need to try.
(can't forget to mention the Spinach and Pear salad).
Take a Friday evening walk through Bordentown, and stop in this little gem of a restaurant.
