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.

Our group of nine had dinner here to celebrate a birthday and an anniversary. The decor was delightfully different. Service was great, delivered with a smile and we never had to wait for anything. The group included vegan, vegetarian, and a couple people with allergies...More

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!

Over the Moon Cafe is an out of the way place just north of downtown Tacoma. Parking is tough but the ambiance and food are well-worth it.

The atmosphere is cozy and intimate. The menu can accommodate vegan and gluten free customers. Food has always been delicious and the wine selection is top notch. Make reservations.

We went for lunch during the week. The place is very small, so generally speaking, reservations are a good idea. The service was excellent. We shared a bowl of crab bisque which was also excellent. For the meal I chose zucchini lasagna, my husband had...More

This is a great little dinner spot, tucked away on Opera Alley (Court C). It not far from the Tacoma light rail system, making it is easy to get to. It is decorated in an eclectic style, with comfy dining chairs and velvet wall hangings,...More

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
