Haven't been to Moonstruck in a long time and won't wait so long again. Dinner was awesome, server was excellent. It was a great way to avoid the Halloween goblins and enjoy a relaxing evening with friends while feasting on culinary delights.

Went for my dad's 60th birthday. Enjoyed a window seat with a nice view. Got to listen to a piano playing from downstairs. Service was excellent and very knowledgeable of the menu. Food was great. Will go back again.

ill keep this short and sweet. Moonstruck is one of the best restaurants I've been to. Every single item on their menu is so so so good. Theres a reason they have 178 other 5 star ratings. They are always packed and its a super romantic setting. But also good for families. love love love moonstruck!

This was our second trip to this wonderful restaurant and just as enjoyable. What a wonderful place to share food and drinks with friends. The waiter was extremely attentive and the food was fabulous! One of my favorite places. Cozy bar area to have a drink and wait for a table.

This restaurant is a sure thing. You will get delicious food and excellent service. Only issue is they don't take reservations, but you can always have a cocktail while you wait.

Located next to the lake that separates Asbury Park from Ocean Grove is one of the best restaurants in the neighborhood. Each time I have eaten here it has been a truly delectable event. My son who is a trained chef has come with me and given his accolades as well. From the appetizers to the dessert it is an... More

We had an early seating (6.30) for NYE, to see a band later. Food was amazing (duck, lamb, scallops - all super good). Antonio was our server and he was 'beat ever'. Not expensive and wine is really well priced (many great choices at $25-$30). Service was perfect - we were never rushed. They organized an NYE event better than... More

My favorite dinner restaurant no doubt! Try the vegi platter with homemade mozzarella. Sitting on the porch is just pure bliss too

My lady & I just had a great evening at Moonstruck. Excellent food and drinks, along with friendly & attentive service. You can't beat that. The downstairs level was comfortable for happy hour, and upstairs, beautiful for dinner. Summertime dining is really nice outside on the upper decks with the Wesley Lake views. Add it for a must do in... More

I live at the Jersey Shore, but IMO there aren't any really good restaurants close by, Asbury Park is about 1/2 hour away, which isn't too unreasonable. It's across the street from Wesley Lake, and it's really pleasant dining on one of the outdoor porches in the summer time. Not an option in the cold weather, but last evening the... More
