Seems like the service at Under The Moon has become less consistant in the past 6 months.We usually go on a Saturday night,and although their volume of customers has increased,Under The Moon doesn't have the same level of service that it used to.For example,with 4 of us at the table,one of us didn't have any silverware.We needed to ask 3 times for someone to bring silverware to one of us,over about 10-15 minutes.We handed over a bottle of wine to be opened and waited also about 10-15 minutes for the opened bottle to arrive back at our table,and that's too long.So,certain annoying issues like that.The staff was harried,and it may be that with more customers,they need more staff.Otherwise,the food itself,and their desserts were fabulous,as always.

Going to Under The Moon is always a treat for us. We live in town and are never let down by the quality of their food, the fun decor and the lovely people who provide service. Pay attention to who you bring with you -- my mother, who has hearing aids, found it difficult to follow conversation with the noisy Sunday lunch crowd and was overwhelmed several times. Overall an excellent experience and we will eat there again soon, maybe even tonight!

Waited approx 15 minutes for anyone to come to the table after we were seated. I am fine with delayed service e but no explanation or apology offered. Soup and coffee(brought our after dessert) both served lukewarm. Dinner was very good and dessert was delicious but the service took away from the overall experience.

I love this place; one of my favorite restaurants. A friend of mine met me for brunch on a Sunday and the food was fabulous. Our waiter; however, was not very good. He didn't come to check to see if we needed anything and pretty much ignored us. This is not the usual for this place; we have always had great service, so I don't know what why the service was poor this time. Just one of those things. The ambience here is great, too. I love the interior design!

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.

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.

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.
