Eating dinner at Moonstruck was somewhat ironic. We had spent the day at Six Flags in Jackson and, after a day of eating park food, we were looking for a different dining experience. Since Moonstruck was listed as the number 1 restaurant in Asbury Park, we decided to eat at this establishment. They do not take reservations...and while we showed... More

Elegant atmosphere excellent service and food. Have a cocktail and appetizer in the lounge or on the front porch while you wait for your table. I recommend the baked seafood.

This is our go to place for a great meal every time. Wonderful food expertly prepared, and the best service anywhere. Never too loud, never rushed. Nobody does it better. Don't change a thing!!

I treated the family to dinner for a special occasion and was not disappointed. The menu was able to satisfy a variety of tastes. The food was lovely, arrived in a reasonable amount of time, and the service was attentive despite it being a full room on a Saturday night. My only complaint is that they do not take reservations,... More

We recently ate at Moonstruck on a Friday night. Since they don't take reservations, we were concerned about the wait, but we got there around 7:30pm and were seated immediately. (It was also a slightly chilly April night - definitely not "high beach season" - so I can imagine a Friday in July will be busier.) Some reviews have mentioned... More

Moonstruck has consistently been one of my favorite restaurants as far back as when they were in the small storefront in Ocean Grove, and my most recent visit was no exception. My fiance and I recently visited on a Saturday night. We enjoyed cocktails in the lounge while waiting for our table (the citrus blossom martini is amazing), and then... More

We checked out Moonstruck after several friends recommended it for a special date night out. I was really looking forward to being blown away by the experience with how much I read about Moonstruck just being that amazing. Quite frankly, my husband and I were a little underwhelmed. Now, don't get me wrong, our meal was not bad at all,... More

We visited Moonstruck for happy hour and loved it. Be sure to get there early though, as the bar area is small. The drink specials are delicious and reasonably priced. Many of their appetizers are 1/2 price, too. We left full and in good spirits!
