We had an excellent experience at Moonstones for a retirement dinner. There was an amazing variety of small plates to sample; we enjoyed passing them around for all to enjoy. Am glad we saved just enough room for dessert, for these were outstanding as well. The waitress was knowledgeable and service prompt and courteous. It was a lot of money,... More

Have now visited twice with my family and we were amazed at the level of great and friendly service. Very good and unique selection of foods. Also very good selection of craft beers.

Been to Moonstones many times for Sunday brunch and it never disappoints! Also have had the tapas style dinner before and everything is always great.

We went to Moonstones on a Friday night at around 9pm. We found out that Moonstones is a popular place and you really need a reservation. However, Moonstones had a small empty lit up room to the right of the reception desk which they use for groups. Since the room was lighted and the tables set, we asked if we... More

After trying Moonstones for lunch and brunch I hoped that dinner would be the charm that would convince me it deserved an above average rating. No luck. The service was very good, attentive and timely. The presentation while very in style, isn't to my liking. Oversized plates with morsels of food waiting to be admired. Food should tantalize, but it... More

The bartenders are amazing and made some really great drinks - the Moscow Mule was a very special one - these guys are mixologists!

Since they opened the doors at Moonstones, my wife & I have randomly visited and sampled various offerings hoping that it could grow to be a decent place for a town that sorely lacks variety for consistent good, fun places to dine. Alas, despite what you may see in some reviews, we found once again that Moonstones still falls far... More

The choices for food is limited in Chelmsford. Moonstones is fairly expensive but the food was delicious. I eat here often for business and I've never been disappointed. Book a table in advance because it is very busy almost every night

Have had two amazing visits to Moonstones. Food is creative, delicious, artfully presented. Service with our waiter Sharif was excellent. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are in a big city restaurant or in LA. Going to be a regular go to. Raw bar, creative cocktails, hoisin duck sliders, grilled bread with shrimp scampi, scallops, pork belly and egg,... More
