Lighting and furnishings give the place a different ambiance, very much in the theater feel being on Opera Alley. The multi level space also provides scale and privacy. Though the food was good, it was not great. The portions were on the small size, so note this if you are hungry. For the prices I was expecting more. I will... More

I ate here based on Yelp reviews and was a bit disappointed. The many positive reviews on Yelp didn't translate to a positive experience for me. The food was average to above average, but the service was below average. Wouldn't visit again.

We found the restaurant on the Trip Advisor site, where it was ranked very high and didn't disappoint! Small, intimate, with an extremely friendly and knowledgeable waitress -- who managed to keep everyone happy even tho she was the only one on for a quiet week night. Creative and delicious food and they easily accommodated my husband's onion allergy. Will... More

The food and atmosphere here were very good. Service was slow, (which was OK by us) and the table next to us was VERY loud, which was off putting when we wanted a quiet, romantic dinner, but overall I'd recommend it. Food is fresh, with good flavors. Sauces tended to be a bit on the heavier side, but not overbearing.

We were in area, and sought recommendation from TA and Yelp, this restaurant came up as a good bet. It is a very cute, funky restaurant. The wait staff was good, the hostess very helpful and the food was quite goo. Make sure you you look around and hit the wash room for creative decorations.

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
