There were 6 of us. Apps were great as well as soups. Everyone's meal was very good. I choose to order two apps and a side of veggies. Not a good decision. Octopus and potatoes has a good sauce but not so tender with a strange overlying texture. Veggies looked like what was left in pan. Deserts on the other... More

Nice selection of tapas or entree's. Only drawback was wine is available only by the bottle - not by the glass (apparently a liquor license issue). Lemon Meringue pie for dessert was excellent, and perfect for sharing.

I called to ask specifically if they had today their crepe cake they have been posting on FB. The lady who answered sounded confused and first said no we don't have the chocolate crepe cake but yes we have strawberry and chocolate banana crepe cake. I went to pick up a slice and when I got there the note on... More

Under the Moon has amazing fish tacos, and when I go there for lunch, I almost always get them! I work for a company that is located nearby and my co-workers and I eat here quite often and have always had a positive experience. From the bread that is served with the delicious oil at the beginning, to the homemade... More

Last week I brought my friends from North Jersey to Under the Moon. They loved it! The food was phenomenal. They ran out of a skirt steak for $25, but offered us the $55 filet mignon for the same price; great business.

Our first time here, very enable. Warm and interesting interior with mid-century antiques and good lighting. The menu all looked good, but we went for pork chops stuffed with proscutto, cheese, cranberries and figs- outstanding and delicious and exactly as described. Local wine at $22/ bottle was a good match and service was friendly and very professional. It was a... More

Been there twice for brunch and food is excellent!! We've had the empanadas, eggs Benedict (2 ways) with pork roll or salmon, the grilled octopus and everything is made to order! Plenty of choices for all tastes! Well worth a visit, whether local or traveling!

We love Under the Moon Cafe! It has a variety of unique and delicious food choices. The atmosphere is quaint and eclectic. We had our engagement party here a couple of years ago; it was perfect! We are frequent visitors because their food is that good! The beef empanadas are my favorite! Their homemade desserts are generous and so good,... More

From the mismatched place settings, repurposed Singer sewing table two-tops, and punched copper ceiling tiles, this perfect BYOB is everything date night requires. As you walk in the door, you are immediately greeted by an vintage diner dessert display filled with Under the Moon's homemade pies and other delights. Whether seated at small sewing machine table or the long bench... More
