Our meal was well prepared, we had the New York Strip. The atmosphere was as good as the meal. The staff attended to us often. The location was a little hard to find but it is well worth the effort.

This is a sweet little restaurant not far from the Tacoma Thursday market. The waiter was attentive and charming. The sandwiches were creative and delicious (even a wee bit spicy). The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. I would highly recommend this experience.

We should have saved our appetites because the food was rich and delicious. We did manage to squeeze in a shared dessert in spite of how full we were, though. (The peanut butter pie --shared three ways-- was really good!) We'll visit this restaurant again.

Small private and cozy. Get reservations it's a small place and fills up fast. Great food and service. Good wine list.

We went here to celebrate our son's return home for the summer. All of us were blown away by the food. The bouillabaisse was superb. My husband's fish dish was incredible. My son ordered two appetizers and he loved them both. The only minor issue...More

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
