This is the best restaurant in Redding bar none. Excellent food, good wine selection and quality cocktails. The freshest local produce and meat available.

Moonstone is located up the hill on Placer on the west side of Redding. It’s on the corner of a busy strip mall next to a Starbucks. It’s a small modern, restaurant with a bar and seating where you can watch the chef perform his magic while sipping your cocktail from a well-stocked bar. The drink menu is many pages... More

We arrived without a reservation. They worked to find a way to serve us. A few minutes later we were seated at the bsr and served immefiately. The Filet was amazing! The desserts...the tall one...are wonderful. Our waiter promised they removed the calories so we enjoyed our dessert without feeling the least bit guilty. Everyone was so friendly and food... More

We had the grilled mahi with coconut rice, peach salsa and grilled pattypan squash. So fresh, flavors really came through. Like a flavor dance in your mouth. The summer tomato salad wonderful also. Fresh squeezed lemonade just right tart. Dessert shared peach cobbler with oat crumbles, a LA mode. What a finish!

We had ordered Terriyaki Mushroom Burger with melted Swiss Cheese and Pommes Frites. I had ordered "medium" for my burger. It was very tough and dense meat, very dry. The "pommes frites" were from the bottom of the pan, I think. Little burned bits and pieces. Pommes frites have to be cooked in oil twice. I think these were cooked... More

We had a lovely dinner here. Everything was very fresh and tasty, with locally sourced quality ingredients. A true foodie fine dining experience in Redding! We had the fish tacos, they were delicious, and the bibb salad was an entire head of bibb lettuce. The locally grown strawberries and freshly made biscuit made a memorable strawberry shortcake. They also have... More

Great food and awesome service , really pet friendly no worries after traveling through with a new puppy on 100+ temperature day. Super friendly. Food was fantastic, we will make this a pit stop off I-5 as much a possible.
