This is a great little BYOB restaurant! I had the stuffed shrimp appetizer, an amazing spinach salad, and basa filet w/ sautéed spinach and fingerling potatoes! Every bite delicious! They sometimes make a Creme Brûlée Cake that is excellent! I will return here again and again!

Eclectic, charming ambiance with mismatched tableware and decor. Food is delicious, plus it’s a BYOB. Who could ask for more. Make sure you leave room for dessert!

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.

Servers were friendly and food was delicious! We ordered a bunch of small plates to share as well as two desserts to go and it was extremely practical. The food was different and the flavors were excellent! Also love that it’s a BYOB! The Decour is adorable and eclectic. Will definitely return!

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.

Positively delicious. This is NOT fast food, it's fresh, quality food. Main dishes run from $15 to $30 per person, but including beverage. BYOB. Great service.

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.

Took mom out for her 80th birthday with family. We shared numerous tapas plates and loved most of them, liked the others. Another fun night out here in a quaint town.

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.
