Our dinner was perfect, warm and flavorful. I liked that the ravioli dish came with a generous side of fresh local vegetables. It's expensive, at around $30 for a main dish, although the portions are generous. The only downside was that the noise level in the dining room was a little high when the place was full. For a quieter... More

We are so lucky to have this restaurant in our little town. The food is always wonderful and the staff always knowledgeable and friendly. The seafood is fresh and well-prepared, the beef is grass fed, and the vegetarian options are amazing. We can rarely leave without having one of their house made desserts and the wine list is extensive.

New Moon has become my favorite restaurant in town, by far. Peach & Pork Belly, cherry sauce & duck breast. Friendly staff, good prices, generous portions. Perfection!

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
