I loved my meal at Over the Moon Cafe and I am looking for my next visit back next month. I had the soup to start (Crab bisque). It was very tasty and had quite a bit of crab. For my main course, I had the house butcher ling cod, which the server told us they only had for 17... More

Found this gem after landing at Sea Tac and looking for a local place to dine before heading toward Olympic National. Setting, service, and lunch options were excellent. Mac & Cheese dish was excellent and so was the chicken sandwich. Tomato bisque was a great way to start a pleasant experience. Go see them and enjoy.

SOOO comfortable. Who would have thought of adding deep cushions to already comfortable seating in a quaint Victorian setting!! Interior design is so inviting you suspect the food has to be as fine. No disappointments here!! This restaurant has a generous menu with it's specialties that the waitress is quick to point out. Great to have this kind of knowledgeable... More

Over the Moon continues to be one of my favorite places to eat in Tacoma. It is tucked down a little alley and can be hard to find, but it is worth it. The atmosphere is great- with lots of comfy vintage chairs, dim lighting, and cute little books to read on the tables. The salmon sandwich is a favorite... More

Our son was married midweek in downtown Tacoma. The bride had selected this restaurant for an early dinner for twelve people. Everyone ordered from the dinner menu. Although I thought the prices were high, all agreed that their meals were absolutely delicious. We also shared a few bottles of wine to toast the bride and groom. Our server, Danielle, was... More

I have been to Over the Moon twice for lunch. There is such a cute romantic feel about the restaurant. Loved reading some of the books on our table! The food is also very good. Will definitely be going back.

I ordered a veggie sandwich. I got a salad sandwich. Lettuce, tomato and avacado. Not the kind of veggie sandwiches I can make at home. It was supposed to come with walnuts which I found intriguing but there were NO walnuts on my sandwich. My husband had the tuna and that was bland. Service find. Place was dark.

I am so sorry that you did not find our sandwiches to your satisfaction in your recent visit. Only to clarify, the veggie sandwich on the menu states "Avocado and veggie sandwich with lettuce, tomato and red onion, and our sundried tomato pesto made with lemon, sundried tomato, evoo and walnuts, served on Dave’s whole grain bread." Thus, you would... More
