The wife and I stopped in for lunch and found the menu limited and intended for the more "sophisticated" pallet. The wifes lunch consisted mainly of garnish and my burger was best described as some meat with green bushes. When the bill came we were...decided never to return and next time look for a more blue collar type establishment.More

Jeff was our waiter. He was taking care of the bar, tables, busing and running his own food. He helped us with the wine and food selection. All of his selections were perfect. It’s a very international menu and each item is uniquely wonderful. Jeff...representative the food and the establishment very well. This is a must visit establishmentMore

Ordered curbside pick up. Braised short rib dinner. Delicious. Full dinner with potatoes, vegetables, and salad. Menu labels it enough for 2-4. That was accurate. My wife and I ate heartily and had enough leftover for another dinner. I frequent many of Chelmsford's restaurants but...this was my first visit to Moonstones. Surely won't be my last. I'll be turning to Moonstones for curbside pick up for the remainder of this coronavirus mayhem, and look forward to paying a visit post pandemic.More

Intended to have dinner on a Friday night. Instead, had tapas. Eggplant campanata for three amounts to a teaspoon a piece. Falafel were the smallest I have EVER seen. Three scallops, one for each person and a salad for three. One drink a piece and...a burger split three ways with one bite a piece of squash for $140. We typically spend this for the three of us, or a bit more; however, we don't often feel like we need to stop for food after a meal! The most frustrating part is that the burger was $16 but increased by an additional $5 because parmesan cheese was sprinkled on the accompanying french fries. We will not be going back again!More

Dear 207TCEA We are very sorry to hear that you left hungry--a complaint we don't hear very often. May I ask, did your server try to guide the dining experience? In general, our excellent staff is very good about helping folks navigate tapas and corresponding...More

Went with my family of 6 for dinner! The decor is beautiful and the service was excellent. We ordered about 15 small plates to share and everyone was good! The Parmesan truffle fries are a must. The short ribs and pork belly were cooked to...perfection. Shrimp tempura, oysters...my oh my! So much fun trying different dishes and they were brought out in a nice paced manner. Needless to say we were full and happy to enjoy our family with this fine food. You must go...no disappointments here!More

I really can’t say what type of place this is... raw bar, Asian, burgers ... all was delicious. One thing to consider is that the menu offers “small plates” and “large plates”. We each ordered a small plate but it turned out the small plates...are really appetizers or like tapas. Not a big deal but just a warning to order several small or else go for the large. I met a friend that I hadn’t seen in years so we sat for 4hrs!! Yikes. I felt bad we were taking a table from the waitress but she was so nice about it and we never felt rushed.More

We came here at 11:30 for a business lunch and they seated us at a nice round table in the corner, giving us some privacy and the ability to talk and meet. Food here is very good and everyone was happy. Poke bowls were excellent,...tuna fresh and sushi quality. Lunch bowls with Vietnamese system shrimp was very good. Overall,an excellent meal, great service.More
