“Good BUT NOT Best Restaurant in New Hope”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We went for dinner on a recent Saturday night with a group of 4 on a cold wintry night . The price fix choices were great and the food was good but not great . Salads were excellent , desserts very good but entrees disappointed with vegetables cold which accompanied the salmon . Service was very good and we had a good time but we have other favorites in new hope we prefer better . Check tripadvisor for other choices .

“Delightful Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The Cafe Blue Moose is a refreshing experience in culinary dining. I have to say I loved everything about this place -- the food was excellent and service was wondeful. They advertise themselves as the "youth run" restaurant and it truly is -- I was watching Skylar, the Chef/Owner and the rest of the staff hustle all evening long. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back very soon.

“If you like SMALL... This place is for you”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Ok I got a chance to visit this restaurant again and the food, was delicious as it was the first time. Unfortunately, my chair was again right up against the diner behind me...this place is small! Anyway, we heard crashing all night from falling utensils, one was the basket of utensils that they keep by the door, used when they seat you. Someone waiting for a table bumped it. Maybe the popcorn machine should go until there is more room...

I think I'll wait for them to move to another larger location before I return. I know the $28 three coarse meal is very appealing but this place is just not worth the aggregation.

Dear Ira S Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit!
It is true our restaurant is small, reminiscent to me at least of what you might find at many small cafés in Europe (hence why we chose to include cafe in our name). Regrettably, however, we do love our space as do many of our diners. I think that it is unlikely we will continue our business in any other location. With that being said, our restaurant has 14 tables all of which have their own unique spacial considerations. If you would like to visit us again (as we all sincerely hope you do) mention your needs to us, and we are happy to reserve a table in a different section of our restaurant. In my two years as owner of this restaurant, I have learned that all of our diners have very different opinions and preferences in regards to their experience. We try to accommodate them all to the best of our ability, and to take their feedback into consideration as we develop for the future!

Warm regards,
Skylar Bird (chef and owner)
