Great food, atmosphere and service. Loved the verandahs with the tables and ceiling fans. Wait staff was excellent, attentive but not overbearing.

Been to Moonstruck a few times and always had a fabulously delicious meal with good advise given on the wines to try. Always have to wait for a table but it is well worth it. Only had one occasion out of the many times of visiting where had an issue and that was with getting a table. Tried to book... More

The taste of the food reminded me so much of one of my very favorite Italian restaurants that I had not been to in many years, it made me so happy. I was here with a friend, and we immediately messaged my husband and told him that I wanted to come here for my birthday dinner!

We haven't been to Asbury Park in many years, so when friends of ours invited us to have dinner at Moonstruck, We were reluctant to go... but we were pleasantly surprised. This is a really good restaurant... We had to wait for table because they don't except reservations for a party of four, but once we sat down it was... More

This restaurant is amzing. A quaint yet romantic vibe, with impeccable food. They were very accommodating to my gluten free diet restrictions as well. I especially love their fish dishes. Simple, amazing, delicious food

We tend to stay in Ocean Grove and always have to walk over and have at least one or two meals at Moonstruck. The menu is diverse and well conceived. Their bowls of NJ tomatoes when in season are to die for (paired with fresh basil, green beans, onions...yum). The bartenders really know how to make a drink. Friday night... More

Visited for my birthday with my family. It was Saturday night. We showed up at 4:40 hoping not to wait too long for a table (dinner tables start at 5 pm). we figured we could start our appetizers out on the balcony, and then move to our table when ready, as in the past. The place was super busy. The... More

If you're willing to wait 1.5 hours for a table and then another hour for dinner, then this is your place. Ordered numerous amounts of cocktails while waiting for the table on a Saturday night. Got the Moonstruck martini. Very yummy. For dinner, ordered the chicken. And mushrooms with penne pasta. Definitely the best sauce I have ever had over... More

Moonstruck has always been a favorite restaurant of mine... My family and I went on Friday and as always, the food was out of this world!!! The service.. EVEN better (if that is possible). It is like eating at a 5 star restaurant, but with really kind and attentive staff that make you feel like you are welcome and like... More
