Celebrated our wedding anniversary at this delightful restaurant in Exeter NH. This was fine dining at its best. We were warmly greeted by the hostess who, though we had not been to the Blue Moon in over a year, recognized us and welcomed us back. The dining room has a warm, elegant feel to it - just right for a... More

We have dined here many times. The food is consistently excellent although expensive. The servers are professional (attentive and friendly). We were last there midweek and had a 6pm reservation. The noise level was reasonable even when the restaurant was almost filled. Unfortunately, the restaurant no longer serves lunch.

A truly wonderful experience! Met friends for dinner. While I don't drink cocktails often, everyone in my party raved about the creative choices. I enjoyed a pomegranate chicken dish, along with a beet salad. Amazing! I wasn't fond of my husbands skirt steak, as it was a little tough. Desserts were all fantastic. The ambiance is very warm and cozy,... More

Nicely appointed, with a menu with lots of interesting choices, though the food itself didn't live up to the ambitions: overcooked fish and tasteless crab - squash mound. Good vegan options, however; and great bread.

Went her with my hubby for dinner. The place was quite busy. We had reservations but they seemed to be able to accommodate guests who didn't have reservations without a horrific wait time. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Right from the beginning we noticed that there was a real team effort on keeping guests happy and delivering drinks and... More

I love going to this place: lunch or dinner. The food is fresh and exciting flavors meet your tastebuds. The lunch atmosphere is woodsy and intimate. The place is transformed for dinner. Lovely lighting and tablecloths serve to complete the transformation. One of the few places in southern NH where in can have great vegan food from appetizers to desserts... More

Blue Moon Evolution is as its name describes. Always evolving and amazingly so with such originality. You can count on great dishes, small foods, appetizers, soups and impressive artisanal cheeses and charcuterie here. Most;y these are from New Hampshire and some from Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut too. But for me it is the Entrees. There is always a new... More
