Very Good, but pricey

Great food and very nice for a special occasion. It's in a great part of town everything in easy walking distance. It's a romantic restaurant and has a menu for all.

$5 for one ravioli, $17 for prawn appetizer..this is pricy folks! But I can't say anything bad about this place. The food is great! I had a salad and the prawn appetizer-it was perfect. Not too full-but not wanting anything else. Hubby and a friend had a smoked salmon ravioli (the dinner plate with some veggies), a friend had sea... More

Set in the magical town of Nevada City, which is full of life and gold rush history this cafe allows you to slow down and truly enjoy yourself. The menus are seasonal to ensure the freshest produce and the big plate selections provide a regional quality of best available meats, fish and poultry. My choose was Ahi, perfectly pan seared...

We love the food and quality of it. The service rocks. It can get a bit loud. Weekdays are better to avoid that.

This restaurant serves the best food and wine in the Grass Valley area. Pricey but well worth it if you're in the area.

I took my sister to New Moon for her birthday. The clams were delicious for the appetizer. I ordered the Sole and my sister the Lamb Shank and both so good. The lamb shanks were wonderfully braised with a rich sauce delicious. This is the best restaurant in the area. I think Peter is the best Chef in Nevada County.... More

This restaurant is very upscale for our neighborhood. The ambiance is great for a small town, but just so so for the big city. Food is excellent, prices are night, but let me say again, food is excellent. Would definately go back.

Small portions...high prices. Good service ....nice ambiance...nice variety on the menu. Felt like they put on an air of opulence to justify pricing.
