We are a small 38-seat, family, scratch kitchen boutique-style restaurant and it is our desire to bring you a warm and welcoming dining experience. I strive to keep our menus fresh and updated for every season, while rotating customer favorites. We source local products as much as possible. Our primary focus is fresh, robust menu items, with emphasis on both protein and pasta dishes.

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.

The amazing aromas upon entering Over The Moon is a promise of what's to come! The beet stack is amazing and we both loved the two pasta dishes we ordered. We love this sweet, romantic and delicious spot tucked away on Opera Alley. Ample free parking too!

We had a reservation for a late dinner and we were delayed attendance at our granddaughter's high school choir competition/performance which ran a bit long. Once it was obvious that we'd be late, I phoned on my way to the car. They were very accommodating and appreciative for the heads up. Everything about our experience met or exceeded the claims by and for the restaurant.

We celebrated our Anniversary at Over the Moon Cafe and we couldn't have picked a better place. The service was fabulous; they honored our special day in many ways from a card and rose petals on the table to a special anniversary message on our dessert! Thank you

Great small, intimate, quirky restaurant near theater district in Tacoma. They have small plates, which are filling, and elegant mains. We had the bread and cheese, which was excellent, as was the spinach dip. The prices are on the high end, but it's the kind of place you can spend time in intimate and relaxed dining with attentive and knowledgeable staff. We just had small plates this time, but have had their full dinners before and highly recommend a visit!! Note: it is a small restaurant so reservations on Open Table are a good idea-when plays are on at the Pantages they fill up quickly!

I’ve been here a few times...tonight was the best. The food was absolutely exquisite...I had the king salmon with aspersgus and mashed potatoes, all perfectly and deliciously prepared. My lady friend had a chicken dish she could not stop raving about. While we couldn’t fit desert, those are always amazing. The wine list is equally amazing. The entire evening was Over the Moon...never disappoints. Recommended most highly!

This was our first visit, and we found it a wonderful experience. The food was top quality, the service was perfect, and the atmosphere was the best for quiet conversation that you didn't have to shout over the background noise to make yourself heard. We will be back to enjoy another great evening of food and conversation.

OTMC always knocks it out of the park. My wife is gluten free, and we both get to enjoy full courses without feeling like we are settling to accommodate her dietary requirements. Great ambiance, attentive service, over the top wine list. No regrets!

Our anniversary experience at Over the Moon was fabulous! The food was perfect, our server Danielle was awesome. It's our go-to place for special occasions. Deanna had a vision for this place 18 years ago, and the talent to make it happen! Highly recommended.

Excellent little hideaway restaurant with a very home-style feel. Fresh ingredients, great wine list, the ribs were soft and juicy, and the salmon had great crust and wasn't dry as can happen with overcooking fish. Great place!!

Lovely and cozy restaurant. The staff was very attentive but not too attentive - even allowed us to finish our glass of wine even though they were officially closed - without even a sigh. We had the cioppino and the duck, which were both very good though the cioppino perhaps just one shade too spicy. Otherwise wine list is fun and we just really loved how intimate the place was. Great place to go if you want a relaxing meal without a lot of noise.

We have always had great experiences at Over the Moon, and this last was one of the best. We went on our anniversary, and when the wait staff found out they went out of their way to help us celebrate. We decided to share a dessert, and it came on a long platter with "happy anniversary" written on it in chocolate. That was just the final touch on a great evening. The food was outstanding, the room was quiet enough for us to actually have a conversation, and the service struck the perfect balance between being attentive to where we were in the meal and what we needed, on the one hand, and leaving us alone to talk on the other. We will be back, many times we hope.
