This was my third visit to this charming bistro and my third time ordering the chopped salad. But the salad this time was unappealing. The lettuce must have been the old white part of Iceberg lettuce. It was rather bitter, but otherwise tasteless. Very disappointing....More

We were greeted and promptly seated and the waitress was very nice. I had a salad and wasn't impressed my daughter on the other hand loved her sandwich. In my opinion it is overpriced. I would not go back.

We chose this restaurant based on previous reviews but we were disappointed. The setting is unusual and charmingly funky. The staff is friendly. The food was average. We had good crab cake appetizers but our main dishes were slightly above average.

Wonderful food, big portions, great music, lovely atmosphere, friendly service and, most importantly, earthquake proof ;)

I've been to this place a few times and it's a nice spot for a unique date. It feels cozy inside but not crowded. The tables and chairs are different from most places and the tables have different letters and interesting books to look over...More

The hidden gem of T town dining. Deanna,owner/chef, has an outstanding little dining venue. Eclectic, gourmet, intimate and always a great dining experience.

Mean staff that tell you how inconvenient your presence is. I walked out. I will never go to this café again and I never eat here. The parking in the area is very limited and angled. Don't bother going here unless you have excellent breaks...More

This place is on the "best Places to Kiss" list and is often a special occasion/anniversary dinner kind of place. Food is consistently good and fairly priced. It's a family place so it's a bit quirky but you want that more than corporate uniformity! Recommended!

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
