We had a wonderful dinner at Shame on the Moon. Jason, our server, was super. Two of the four of us have to have Gluten free foods. Jason was extremely helpful in making recommendations and in working with the kitchen to modify a recipe. We were at table 71 which is on the porch at the end of the hall.... More

Took the family out for a post Christmas meal. Everybody loved the place. It is noisy and busy and the clientele is very eclectic. Service was great. Salmon is excellent. The liver and onions are TO DIE FOR.

My sweetie and I came here for dinner a few nights ago. We are happy we made reservations as for without we would be out of luck. We were seated in the atrium or perimeter of the location and it was far better in my mind than being in the thick of it all. It is a popular and buzzy... More

We went there with friends who recommended it. Glad we did. Good food, great service by Peter and his team, good value as the entrees include a dinner salad (good size) or soup, bread, vegetables and a starch. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely go back!

First they crammed us in to a tiny table jammed against the wall when there were plenty of nicer ones. Than we had to ask the hostess to find a waiter after no o ne appeared for 10 minutes. Our waiter had been standing with his back to us talking to another server. Things didn't get much better even afterwards.... More

Started with friendly greeting at door, waiter willing to joke with the 6 of us. Fish special great, served hot, excellent spice. Tried fellow diners veal roast.... I'll be back it was amazing. Anther thought the liver was best ever. Huge light choc cake. Best I've been to in several holidays here.

So loud we could not hear each other. Sit on the patio, not in the main Restaraunt. The liver is sensational. The steak was flavorless. Pasta was good.
