We usually stop in Redding on visits to California as a convenient day's drive from home, but until now we had not found a restaurant we looked forward to visiting again. Our initial impression of the Moonstone Bistro was positive, with its modern vibe in gray and silver tones. A nice touch: water... read more

On the road for a month and hungry for lunch, we checked Trip Advisor just as we approached Redding. We quickly decided on Moonstone as it sounded like just our kind of place: locally owned, non-chain, lofty ideals, great reviews. Turned out to be one of our worst restaurant experiences ever. Here's what happened. I ordered a cheeseburger with Pt.... More

At first I was surprised to see Moonstone as #18 of Redding restaurants but then reading thru the lower reviews, I realized that they included the ratings of the former establishment at that site when they described the interior... Because Moonstone deserves to be Top5 if not no. 1. My new reason to happily come back to Redding (travelled for... More

Have lived in Redding for 31 years and I've always been embarrassed by the lack of quality dining in the area. No longer! I would highly recommend Moonstones to anyone. Great food and great service what more can you ask for? As for the price? If you want cheap, go to Subway and then compare the quality of your meal.

Always a good lunch or dinner at Moonstones. The wait-staff is courteous and responsive. Good interaction with the kitchen folks as well. My favorite is their Fish Tacos.....I always think I'll try something different but revert to my old favorite!!

The food is the best in Redding but the prices are ridiculous... It is very small so you always need to book.. The staff are not so friendly but the service is good... It's also noisy so if you want a quiet meal this isn't the place to go.. A booth is the best choice, ask when making your reservation...

I'm in Redding on business, and am in the midst of a whole30 reset for my body. It's very restrictive, and it's not always easy to get something that'll accommodate the restrictions in a restaurant. Moonstone Bistro is the first really good restaurant at which I've eaten in Redding, and I will be back. The ambience was very pleasant. Soft... More

First visit to this incredible bistro last night, December 8,2014. The wait staff was extremely attentive, always nearby to refill your drink order, as well as water glasses. The menu was very varied with a wonderful choice for all tastes. We had the calamari for an appetizer, followed by salad, filet mignon with potatoes and carrots. The dessert menu was... More

I loved everything about Moonstone. It was warm & cozy on a chilly night. The staff was great - really worked together & kept things going in the whole restaurant. We didn't make a reservation, so we sat at the bar, which was fun because we could watch the kitchen activity and all of the beautiful food coming out of... More

Even though it was across town from our hotel we ventured over to have a late dinner at the Moonstone Bistro. We were surprised that it was located in a strip mall, next to Starbucks, but that was the only detraction from what was a delicious meal. We got in only about 30-60 minutes before closing and there were some... More
