We happened to be staying at the best western next to this restaurant so it was an easy choice for dinner. We were so pleasantly surprised! Great menu, good food, fun cocktails and nice service.

While traveling we stopped overnight at the Best Western and noticed Moonstones in front, so we went in for dinner. The décor is very nice and they had a large selection of tapas, as well as beers and wines. My wife had the taco and the beet tapas, which she enjoyed immensely. I settled for the Joe Burger and a...

The decor is quite different with hanging silver spheres and recessed lighting - so I will label it as eclectic. The restaurant is owned by Scott & Kathy Plath - the waitress informed me that it is their second regionally successful restaurant venture, the first being Cobblestones of Lowell. Their hope is to provide the local community a progressive, quality... More

We had a lovely meal of small plates, accompanied by a terrific selection of beer and wine. Be sure to ask the waiter for suggestions on what to eat and how much to order. We were served by Joseph R - a real pro!

Really good experience. Was solo and just wanted a nice dinner. They delivered. I was especially pleased with my server Jennifer. She was so nice and pleasant. The food was great, I had a red curry pasta with scallops and shrimp in it. It was suburb. If you are in this area I am sure you will love it.

Moonstones is beautifully decorated, especially the bar. The atmosphere feels high-end but is still relaxing. It's a great place for couples or small groups. I was there with my (adult) daughter. We sat in the lounge area which is very comfortable. The menu is full of interesting drinks and 'small plates', like tapas or appetizers, that are very enticing for... More

This place is perfect for date night, girls night or even a business dinner. We didn't want a huge meal so we ordered snacks and small plates from the tapas menu. While we looked over the menu, a naan-like bread appetizer arrived for the table next door. I inquired about the intriguing dish to the waitress and advised that it... More

First let me start with Joseph our waiter. AWESOME ! Going back I'd make sure I'd be asking for him! First time visit. This is a restaurant that can cost you little and be a reasonable night out or a small fortune . (ours was a small fortune but nothing out of the ordinary for a nice dinner out) the... More

First blush....am I pulling into the parking lot of a Howard Johnson's ? After speaking with the staff, I actually wAs. Many years ago. The outside is very deceiving, inside is swanky & modern. Nice bar area. Very nice dining areas. Some separate private dining areas noted as well. Nice wine & cocktail list which does not reflect on the... More
