One of a kind`

We dine here often and love Johnny the bartender with his great presence as well as Ginger the hostess with the ... well you get my drift. Specials nightly, fantastic wait staff and 'liver and onions (if you so desire like me) is their house specialty.

I hadn't been here for some time....menu has not changed, at all...which may be OK for some, but I prefer today's more creative chefs, who introduce new, and adventuresome items to a menu. OK salad to start dinner, then I ordered the "Special" of the night....grilled sea bass, in some sort of "light" tomato sauce. I always ask if fish... More

We love Shame on the Moon and have been dining there for about 15 years. Now that we live in the Desert we can visit more frequently. A great restaurant for an elegant dining experience and most enjoyable food reasonably priced.

I have lived in Rancho for 15 years and gone repeatedly to SOTM. It's been great always. Once in a while they are so popular and busy it's a little difficult to get a reservation time I'd like, but that's a separate issue, and my fault for not calling earlier. Believe me you will never be disappointed in going and... More

What can I say? We traveled from Colorado just for the calf's liver. It has been consistently the best we've eaten. We have been to Shame on the Moon many times over the years and have never been disappointed by the food or service. The atmosphere is fantastic, service impeccable and the food the BEST.

A mix of old New York, 1970s Midcentury desert and wonderfulness! Ginger (hostess) was personable, genuine and Marty (server) was exceptional. He sensed what we needed and when. The food? Veal pork roast was to die for; my husband had the lamb (also out of this world), martinis were perfectly made….I can't say enough about this place. We'll go back... More

After 20 years in the Desert we finally went to Shame on the Moon. Three of us for dinner, we got reservations. No waiting. Food was very good. Liver was excellent as was the Soup (both kinds). Service was great. How refreshing that NO one had a CELL PHONE. You were asked on the menu to turn them off or... More

I used to love this restaurant so I was excited when I recently got a chance to go with some relatives. It was clearly mixed, as the veal meatloaf and veal short rib were excellent but two people said the lamb chops were the worst they ever had as they were over cooked and fatty. On top of that they...
