My husband and I went to Moonstone for my birthday in December and had an absolutely delicious dinner. First of all, Moonstone has probably the best cocktails I've had anywhere, better than ones I've had in San Francisco and the wine country: imaginative, tasty, and generous. Our appetizer, which we shared, was the Mozzarella Dumplings, and we were a little... More

Moonstone Bistro was a great find that our friends discovered- without any help from Trip Advisor.... Shame on Redding for a first place for In and Out Burger on Trip Advisor- THIS is the best we have found in many years of travel to Redding for soccer and basketball tournaments. This is our last time staying in Redding for those... More

I'm torn between wanting to be certain this amazing restaurant remains successful and keeping it a secret so it's not so crowded. Fresh creative and beautifully served food and interesting wines, beers and even a holiday lager on tap when we visited. A mid afternoon "Linner" worked well for us. Friendly service and comfortable dining room.

My husband and I visited Redding, Ca. for our anniversary in October 2015. We didn't know much about the city and had no idea of good places to eat, but as we visited with the guide who took us fly-fishing, he mentioned Moonstone Bistro, so we gave it a try. It was wonderful! I ordered a salad with steelhead hammer... More

I go here quite often for business lunches. I love how all of the food is from local growers. I love their fish tacos. I also love their BLT (when in season). Staff is nice and the place has a good ambiance. Great fresh food!!!

They did not have the lamb which is why we went. We tried the "homemade" pasta. The creamed spinach was bland so they added a spicy hot sauce that didn't mix well. The soup was odd. The bowl was enough for 4 people. The service was terrible just as the others say and it was only 1/4th full. We wondered... More

All four guests at our table had different entrees and we were all very pleased with the food. Service was perfect and our server was knowledgeable about all menu items. If I could have, I would have given Moonstone Bistro 10 stars!

If your into fresh, seasonal, organic and local produce, free-range meats, cage-free eggs, and sustainably harvested fish, you will love this place. An establishment that buys from and supports local farmers, gardeners and suppliers, then this place is for you. All I can say is "FANTASTIC"!!

We were ignored, even after talking with the manager. At that point we left since their food is also hit or miss, lately a miss.
