This place definitely deserves the number 1 rating. Service was excellent. Arrived at 5. We got seated immediately. The food was fabulous. If you leave without a slice of chocolate bourbon pecan pie a la mode, you have truly missed out. To die for.

Based on the reviews, we went there at 5 pm on a Wednesday. Our group of 6 was seated immediately. Recommend the buffalo shrimp as a starter - very good and crispy! The soup of the day was a bit bland, but the 2 of...More

Hey Wolfpack81, I am glad you enjoyed your time at Blue Moon. If you wanted to give us a 4.5, I suggest your round up, instead of rounding down. I also don't think Northern Virginians have the market on expecting good food and service. We...More

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
