My husband and I met with friends for lunch in Bordentown, a town full of character and charm. The service at Under The Moon Cafe was excellent, attentive staff, but not at all intrusive. I ordered the gnocchi with gorgonzola cream sauce, and it was very good, with all fresh ingredients. I wish the lighting was brighter to accommodate customers with poor vision. Overall, a delightful lunch experience.

Love the eclectic atmosphere of this small quaint restaurant in Bordentown. Food was superb. Highly recommended the salmon entree. Had already eaten there a few times before. Excellent and very friendly staff. Wonderful experience!

My husband and I split the Kale salad special. It just wasn’t good. ThenI had the monk fish with olives.
Monk fish was tough! Then we had cappuccino - it was cold.
We have been to your restaurant Once before. It was greAt. This time - not a good food night. Our server Zach was great though.

I meet friends there every other month or so (and actually twice this week). Seems like the dishes are getting saltier but the soups are seasonal and delicious (we always pray the soup of the day will be the squash soup the day we go), dishes are quite tasty, and the desserts, difficult to choose from, and then I usually take home half.

We dined here on a cold Tuesday night. I enjoyed several tapas including the octopus , cazuela de queso, dates, tostones, and the short rib tapa. Everything was superb. We had the filet special and pork chop as our entree. Our server sierah was phenomenal from start to finish. Not over bearing but just right. The tiramisu and peanut butter chocolate cheesecake were great as well. I recommend this place to any and all. Top class service and food. Thank you for a great meal Utm

Probably the fourth time we've been here in 15 months; and we'll likely come again. We enjoy the eclectic menu and the innovative, throw-back decor. This time we went for Sunday brunch. The soup of the day was fantastic. Our entrees ranged from acceptable to very good. Nestled in a great part of Bordentown, we love the old-town charm! Save room for dessert.

Have been several times: generally bringing people for first experience. Selection this visit was excellent. Food came quickly - maybe too quickly, since not all dishes were piping hot. Kim was terrific waitress. Always an enjoyable event.

The bacon wrapped dates appetizer was amazing! My salmon dish was would have been better, had the description on the menu been more accurate and specified it was loaded with garlic. I could have so easily asked them to hold the garlic-so that was totally disappointing.
I would absolutely go back, and give it another try.

The food was delicious and we enjoyed how cozy the restaurant ambiance is too. The only issue was that the server, although very sweet, was slow. We were there longer than anticipated because it took so long to get water, our orders, and the check. Otherwise, it was a nice experience. I still recommend checking it out.

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.

We usually eat from the great Tapas menu but chose the special Halloween Table D'hote menu and none of our party of 4 were disappointed. The Pork Osso Bucco was outstanding.

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.
