The food was delicious and the service was superb in this little hideaway nestled downtown. Loved the dishes and attentiveness from the wait staff. I can't wait to go again with a date next time.

During a nearby weekend trade show two colleagues and I found Over the Moon Cafe to be far enough away for breathing room, yet highly rewarding in terms of food, service and setting. The restaurant is near the end of a short alley, with two...More

Super friendly creative fine dining. Small intimate space. Family run. Loved the croutes de fromage and the clams in white wine starters. The duck breast main was delicious. Also have a nice selection of wine including many from the region. Will return.

Expensive for what was received. Not a good option for vegetarians or vegans. Made do with an expensive grilled cheese.

...yes, that's the feeling of this "slightly mysterious & exotic" dining room. I enjoyed a generous cup of "tricky-to-make-well" crab laced crab bisque and a light/bright deep green salad giving shelter to ruby red strawberry slices...fork in one hand and hot crusty sourdough french bread...More

Perfect spot for a quiet and romantic dinner for 2 or 4. Great ambiance and great food. I only wish i would have more room in my stomach for their handmade delights! Great wine options and pours too. I'll be back!

There is generally ample street parking all within a few blocks of Over the Moon. If you get lucky, you'll end up less than a block away. Street parking is metered, but the charges are next to nothing compared to most... More
