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. We offer some amazing craft cocktails with top shelf liquors. No patron bar seating is available.
Turn in to the Alley and experience a truly unique fine dining experience in an atmosphere of understated elegance. "Cafe" -- An unpretentious restaurant.
This was our 4th time to Over the Moon and we were very disappointed. We've always loved the food but this time both my and my wife's food was way below par. My Jumbo shrimp and noodles had a sauce that was more like flavored water and my wife's entre' was flavorless as well.
Will go back one more time hoping this was a fluke but if the food is the same as our visit last Friday it will be our last visit.
Dining in a clearly converted space. Feels like being in a dear friend's home. This is a very intimate setting and ambiance. The boxes of notes on the tables are such a treat reliving moments that happened at the very table you are sitting. The service was great. Hostess and waitress were kind and quick. The food is very well prepared. Again it is like eating at a friend's home if your friend were a master chef. 100% recommend and I can't wait to go back.
Always a special treat!
First time trying this restaurant and food and service outstanding. Will definitely go back again.
This is an intimate, quiet date, cafe type restaurant. We celebrated our 10th anniversary and had a wonderful experience. I enjoyed a flavorful, tender steak. The shrimp and cheesy grits were perfect for my southern born husband. Everything about the ambiance was as we hoped with scattered red rose petals and a sweet Anniversary card ready at the table. We recommend this place and really enjoyed it.
excellent food, excellent service. can't wait to go back again
Fantastic find in Tacoma! Nestled in the theater district, this intimate cafe provides superbly prepared food accented by their pinnacle class service. Decor takes you "backstage" with cozy and romantic tables. Over The Moon Cafe is my new favorite.
A very intimate restaurant perfect for couples or small parties. The food is delicious and the service is superb.
The food was amazing. Huge portions. The ambience was quiet and perfect for celebrating our anniversary
We had a fabulous meal and enjoyed the spirit of the place very much.
Intimate dining experience, great service, great seating, unexpected and delicious menu choices. Worth getting the reservation for. Come early for downtown parking then walk around on a warm summer’s night! Looking forward to going again!
The person who ordered the zucchini lasagne loved it. I ordered the short ribs which were fine, not exceptional and paired with ordinary pasta & the sauce was nearly as rich as when I make it at home, watery, in fact. My husband sent the salmon back--he was born in Alaska and knows when fish is not too fresh. His replacement steak was good. The person who ordered the chicken said it had good flavor, but was dry. Not what we expected given other good reviews.
Food and service was great. The location is not exactly scenic but the interior is nice and unique.
It was a wonderful evening and dinner. zxzxzxzxzxzxzxzxz
The food was excellent, as always. The zucchini lasagna is back! And the GF crab bisque is amazing, as it always is. (OTM doesn't thicken theirs with flour......)
Very intimate dining experience! Food and service are amazing!
Dinner was perfect. We had the best service and the food was excellent. Thanks for a great evening celebrating our anniversary!
Delicious as always. Everything prepared so beautifully. The new craft cocktails are an awesome addition and the two I tried were amazing! Thank you Over the Moon Cafe for another amazing meal.
Birthday dinner went well. It was cozy and quiet and food was great
Fresh produce, delicious sauces and dressing, and shrimp cooked to perfection. The Turtle Pie was as decadent a dessert as they come! Outstanding experience at Over the Moon Cafe!
We two have repeatedly enjoyed Over the Moon Cafe. The drinks and entrees are imaginative and exquisite. The servers are human but efficient. I even enjoy the furnishings and coziness. We'll be back!
Love it. Food fabulous. Staff connects with patrons. Now serving limited cocktails. What’s not to love?
Side note- I complimented the staff on my Manhattan and the individual who made my cocktail was so sweet as to visit me at my table to tell me the history of the ingredients he had chosen. It was a very nice connection.
I send all my friends here.
BTW, as an owner operated business they ask for reservation confirmation with a credit card on the Saturday I booked thru the Open Table app. If you’re unhappy with this practice, I suggest you take your chances and wait in the line to get in.
Second, it says on the website there is no bar...drinks are served at the table
* I am in no way affiliated with this business. I just find them to be outstanding .
Everything was wonderful. Would definitely go back.
Amazing restaurant. Very good service and excellent food!
Excellent food pairings, with unique ingredients, really delicious!
Food was terrific, service was outstanding. Best fine meal I have had in Tacoma in years.
Delicious food and great service. Romantic setting...get dessert!!
Over the Moon is a cozy, family-owned spot with amazing food that's perfect for a date. Re: ambiance --It feels like you're backstage in an vintage theater -- my husband said "I feel like I am going to see that the Muppets are running the kitchen, and I mean that in the best way possible." He ordered the salmon and I ordered a beet/goat cheese salad and the croutes de fromage, and we both ordered the crab bisque which is the best soup I think I've ever had. Bread comes straight from the oven.
Delicious food and amazing service! Can’t wait to go back and try another dish soon!
Nice atmosphere and amazing food. Our server was prompt and friendly.
The flank steak and salmon were both excellent, as was the brussels sprout with cheese sauce small plate.
I had the best steak I've ever had. The ambience is super cool. We will definitely be back.
First time at this restaurant and we wish we lived closer because we would definitely go back. Food was excellent, as was the service.
The food was great and the service was fast and friendly
This is one of our favorite places in the Greater Seattle-Tacoma area. It always delivers on all levels: friendly service, delicious food, very pleasant ambiance. We dined with another couple this time and everyone had high praise. I also highly recommend Over the Moon Café for romantic occasions or date nights.
Always wonderful. We travel to Tacoma from Portland just for the crab bisque, which did not disappoint. The shrimp in the pasta and light cream sauce did not disappoint. And once again the not-quite-cheesecake-not-quite pie was delicious.
Very nice restaurant. The service and the meal were both excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening out.
Noise level is low so a good location for a conversation, great service and reasonably priced food.
Amazing! We loved the food and top notch service. We will be back.
I love the ambiance at over the moon! My girlfriend and I went there for our first date and again a year later and it did not disappoint! There is wide variety of wine which are delicious! Their pasta and salmon dishes are exquisite! An overall great place to go!
