We have been here twice. Both times the dinner was excellent! It is an upscale, special night out, restaurant.

Top notch food, service and wine experience. I had the duck with cherries and my wife had rib eye steak. Plating was as good as any big city restaurant. Service was top notch. Tip: Eat on the patio and enjoy the quiet surroundings.

I wanted to like this place ~ it is in one of my favorite towns and there were five of us looking forward to time together and a wonderful meal. To begin with - we were in the middle of a very loud dining room - and could barely hear one another talk. Then - as the specials were read... More

I've had great meals and ok meals here. They sometimes get ahead of themselves with the menu and it doesn't work but in general the food is a notch above what you generally find I. This area with a good wine and beer list.

This restaurant would beat out many San Francisco restaurants when it comes to food, service and ambiance. I should know, having eaten at many of the city's top establishments. A friend and I recently had lunch at the New Moon, and I can't wait to go back for dinner. The dishes are creative, without being weird! These days some chefs... More

Every dish was so innovative......check out the menu because i could go on and on about the food but don't have the time. We were 4 and had assorted appetizers, entrees, salads, dessert and an excellent bottle of wine. I have... More

We ate here for the first time and will definitely go back. The beet salad is a signature dish and it was the best beat salad I've ever had: warm beets on a bed of arugula and dressed perfectly with a thin slice of exquisite cheese. We then had the fresh wild salmon on mashed potatos and again it was... More

New Moon is everyone's favorite restaurant. Attractive decor, well located in downtown, adventuresome menu, nice wine list, excellent service - what's not to love? Buzz, the owner, works the desk and knows everyone, so you feel well-cared-for when you come in. This is where you go when you have a special occasion to celebrate, or just want to treat yourself....

We are here just the once and although food and service were good there was a distinct lack of atmosphere. Strong focus on the organic but if you want a lively place this is not for you. Even some background music would help. Not the cheapest Nevada City restaurant.

Can't go wrong - whether for business or pleasure, New Moon offers excellent service and great food. Their menu changes regularly so always offers some new experiences. We will not tire of this great place. First Class service and friendly owners.
