Over The Moon Cafe
Dinner features various entrees , starters, salads and desserts. There is a heavy emphasis on both Italian and French fare, along with my love of comfort food. I do my best to provide wines that are of good quality, are affordable and approachable.
Turn in to the Alley and experience a truly unique fine dining experience in an atmosphere of understated elegance. "Cafe" -- An unpretentious restaurant.
I like the setting of the place-unique,different from where we ever experienced. But the waiting area was kinda ood it was by restroom.We stood by reception quite a long time til hostess came to greet us.And the food was so so salty...everything we ordered was salty.We took couple bits of spinach cream then we just gave it up.The rest of other dishes we tried make it because of how pricey it was.We are from the east we don't know if northwest food usually salty.We went there to celebrated out late Valentine's Day weekend and we had gift certificate.My husband said if we didnt have gift certificate he would be more unhappy since we both wasn't satisfied with the foods at all and and waiting area was odd like i mentioned earlier.It's not the kind of place we would go back or recommend to our friend for sure.
If you want a quante little place to have an intimate dinner. This is your spot. Food was exceptional a little pricey, but if you want a great dining experience, with food you just can't get any where. Well you pay for the experience of it all. My honey loved his duck. I loved my steak. If your a vegetarian there vegetables are to die for. Places always over cook they were delicious here. Definitely make a reservation. Full house.
Unbelievable food and service. One of the best restaurants in the Tacoma area. Top Shelf highly recommend.
Chef owner is amazing. Wonderful food, great menu!!
Romantic, accessible, and delicious! Went for our first visit at lunch and will return for dinner next time we're in Tacoma!
It was an amazing place to celebrate our anniversary. Food was great, atmosphere was very unique and relaxing. We would love to go there again
So delicious and comfy its my faveorite place the food is amazing the people are friendly and nice its my number one go to for lunch or diner
A staple of ours for date night, this place is always a wonderful experience! The space isn’t very big, it’s really best for 2 people but can host parties of 4 or more if you make special arrangements. The food here is always top notch. This time around I tried the duck, the meat was tender and juicy. I paired it with a nice full-bodied glass of Pinot Noir. My boyfriend tried the lobster Mac & Cheese, it had depths of flavor and was pretty rich. For dessert, we tried the turtle pie. It was a generous piece, best shared. The flavor again was wonderfully thought out with a combination of rich chocolate, chewy caramel and crunchy pecan. The ambiance is a combination of Ratatouille (the movie) and playing tea as a child in an upstairs attic. There are boxes at most tables that hold notes written by previous diners - most are love notes. A lot of them are really beautifully written. Our table had one and two books to peruse - these can make fun conversation starters. Altogether, it was another very lovely experience! 😊
We absolutely LOVE this restaurant! It is such great food & service every time we go!
The crab bisque is TO DIE FOR! Best we’ve ever had! And their food is fresh & homemade...even their desserts! If you have not gone, make a reservation now! Always 5+stars!!!
Had the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Was amazing. My wife had the Pork Bolognese and that was really good too. Great service.
This is the perfect place for a special evening. I’ve been here many times, and I’m never disappointed.
Not so great. We’ve had better experiences there in the past. We dined early, and there were many tables available when we arrived. We asked if we could sit at one of the empty two-tops with the upholstered wing-back chairs (our favorites), but were told that they weren’t available. Not five minutes after we were given a cramped table by the drafty front door, a solo diner walked in with no reservation (we could hear her conversation with the waiter) and was promptly seated at the table we had asked for. Go figure.
The salad, crab bisque and jumbo shrimp pasta were good, but my Cioppino had so much red pepper in it, that it overpowered the other flavors, and I generally love hot and spicy foods.
We really appreciate all the gluten free options.!!
This is the 4th or 5th time I have eaten there but, the first time for my husband. I took him for Valentines Day. We both enjoyed the Croutes de Fromage, always delicious with the side potato salad. I have recommended it to several people and will go again. Bon Appetite!
Great food and service! The server was very nice, attentive, and accomodating.
We were shown to a cozy table, ordered a fantastic Cabernet , had a wonderful three courses, everything prepared to perfection, and even had fun reading the notes left by other patrons in a little box on the table! Looking forward to another romantic night at Over The Moon!
Dinner was incredible as always. We just love eating here. Our number place for dinner and lunch.
I love this place! The food is always amazing and the cozy feeling just can't be beat. They braved the snow and so did we for a fun filled birthday night out. They made me feel so special and their deserts just can't be beat. Would recommend Over The Moon to everyone.
As usual, the service and food was outstanding. One of my favorite restaurants in Tacoma....no, it is my most favorite!
Awesome, quiet, unique place. Food and service was excellent. Will be back!!
My husband took me there for my birthday dinner. It was our first time there, and now I am looking forward to returning there again. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful.
Lovely dinner in Tacoma’s Opera Ally. Excellent food and great service.
It was our first time eating here, and we enjoyed it in every respect. The food and service were very good, and the pace of the meal was very nice. We will definitely be going back.
Charming spot, lovely people, a perfect spot for a special date or evening.
This place doesn't do anything for me. I think the food is ridiculously over priced and mediocre at best. My friend loves the "grilled cheese" (they use the French words to dress it up) small plate and it was tasty. But not an over the moon experience. The beets were boring with enormous undercooked red beets with hunks of ordinary goat cheese between them. And even though it was a birthday dinner they served us the delicious earl gray chocolate mouse and charged us for it! Really?! All of the other places where we dined earlier this month for my husbands birthday dinners, the dessert was on the various places. I won't bother going back there.
A place that actually read what I requested beforehand! Everything was beautiful and perfect. The staff was incredible and the food was outstanding! Also, the vegan ‘cheesecake’ was so delicious!! This will be a very special place for us...
The food was excellent and the service was great. Will definitely go back
Consistently a great experience with great service and great food and wine.
Over The Moon has it all - location (theater district), ambience (the upper level tables are especially romantic), friendly, fun service and a great variety of delicious menu options. Great wine, too! Intimate, delicious and fun!
I love this place. Fabulous food and staff.
Enjoyed our anniversary at this Café. Never visited it before and loved the quiet. You could carry on a conversation at normal levels with no trouble. Decor warm and vintage, food was delicious, the desserts wonderful, service fine. Would recommend and visit again!
Out of town friends joined us. They were happy. One thing that bothered me more than it bothered the guy who order it was the fact that there was cream added to the pork ragu. I just don’t get that.
Everything was excellent. It was a little too dark where we were seated. However. For the most part it was wonderful. Also, be sure to get a reservation..
The food here was incredible. Our group had the duck and loved it. I had the squash pasta and it was delicious. The only cons would be: restaurant felt a bit cold and the server seemed really rushed. She seemed stressed out and it showed. Otherwise, the food is well worth it.
Fun food and artsy ambiance! Loved it. I plan to return again.
Delicious food, the creamy sage chicken was amazing! We plan to go back for a date night again and try some other amazing foods!
Absolutely Loved the ambience! The food was excellent! Perfect place for pre or post events. Will definitely recommend & return!
Wonderful find. Food was outstanding (rib ragu and lobster pasta), portions were generous, service excellent, and the setting romantic and quiet. Perfect for date night. Wine list is very reasonably priced and nicely local WA/OR.
Great quaint restaurant. Perfect for a date . Quiet seats about 25. Reservations are a good idea.
