Great for special occasion

Moonstones has hands-down THE best French fries I have ever eaten in my life. They are super-thin, extra crispy, and you can even get them with different seasonings and toppings. French fries aside, the restaurant has lots of other excellent choices too, most of them much more upscale! Yes, it's... read more

Every time I go my friends and I share various food and drink items. Everything is always very yummy. Service is very friendly. There's a gluten-free menu. I've been with girlfriends for lunch, a night out and I took my niece to celebrate graduation. Probably not so good for children. I'm looking forward to trying the red velvet pancakes on... More

Five of us ate at Moonstones this evening. The atmosphere was elegant but very dark and difficult to read the prices on the menu. The food item was in dark readable type but the prices were in a dim gray light small font. The menu consisted of mostly tapas, a few bar food items and a few very expensive main... More

Wonderful place for a business lunch. Not too crowded and quiet enough for a discussion. Menu was fabulous and not too pricey. Service was great as well. Would definitely go back again.

On Sunday's enjoy the bloody mary bar - choose your fav vodka then add your personal choices of spices and goodies. Absolutely wonderful!

Oysters, Flatbread, Beets, chicken wings, fries- 2 flavors, pork belly sliders, buffalo calamari. Everything was delicious. My husband who doesn't like... More

This is one of my favorite places in the area for an extravagant night out. Beautiful lighting and aesthetics as you walk in the door, and on my way to the bar you can see the "raw bar" which is set up nicely for oysters on the half shall, shrimp cocktails, and tuna tartar. The bar itself is lovely, unique... More

I was surprised that I liked moonstones so much given that it shares a parking lot with a gas station and a best western. we had a Cesar, the beet ravioli, chicken spring rolls, ribeye steak, moonshine cocktail, Japanese scotch and a lovely French cab. everything was a standout except the spring rolls which were still pretty tasty. I'd definitely... More

The food was fantastic! I had the breakfast sandwich and my companion had the French toast. The sandwich was huge as was the serving of French toast. We had the brown sugared pineapple as an app and this was also amazing. Service was fine although a little weird as our waitress shared that she was just diagnosed with a thyroid... More
