Big City food in little town

Great service, wonderful staff, food is really good but seemed a bit expensive. Definitely the best place in Nevada City.

From the congeniality of the owner/host, Buzz, to the great service of it's staff and finally the delicious food, the New Moon Cafe is by far the best restaurant experience in the area. We go there frequently and especially when we have guests.

Farm to fork deliciousness. Great service. Rotating menu keeps the entrees exciting. It is moderately expensive ( with two drinks, two entrees and dessert you will hit $100 or more). Dress is casual and atmosphere is great for a date night or a lively dinner with friends.

We took our friends who are big time foodies, and they loved the place. The chef uses the freshest of what is in season, and during the growing season buys from local farmers ensuring that the food is super fresh.

$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.
