The place looked great from outside so we decided to try it. They were able to accommodate 3 of us immediately even though the place was fairly busy. I had the shrimp and scallop risotto which was absolutely delicious. I ate every bite. Mojitos were perfectly made. We will be back.

This is the second time I went to Moonstruck. Although it was a weekend I October, it was busy all night. We got there around 9:15 and was able to be seated immediately. The fish special was excellent. Service was outstanding and so were the bar drinks. Another excellent meal.

Moonstruck is my favorite place for a special meal in Asbury Park and definitely an excellent choice for a romantic meal or special occasion. Housed in a Victorian style building with several levels, charming wrap around porches, and views of Wesley Lake, the mood is set just as soon as you walk up to the door. In summertime, you can...

Had a very nice meal with friends. Happy hour drinks were delicious. Apps were different and unique. Entrees were big portions and very good. Extensive selection on the menu. Service was excellent. Upstairs away from bar is better for a quite dinner.

Had a wonderful meal here. Started off with the chowders. Very nice. I had the duck breast. Well prepared and full of flavor. The wife had the halibut special which she enjoyed immensely. The fish was cooked perfectly meaty and yet still flakey. We didn't have the dessert though they seemed tempting. The ambience is quiet and can be romantic... More

This is an elegant restaurant with views of water. The staff gave impeccable service; the meal was delicious (chicken marsala), corn & clam chowder.

When I moved to NJ 25 years ago, I would have never dreamed that Asbury Park would be a destination for a nice dinner out. Now it has transformed to just that. Among the many great restaurants in Asbury, Moonstruck stands out. First, it has a great overall "feel." A three story restaurant - with decks on all levels and... More

Service was good. We were able to sit outside. Everyone enjoyed the food you have to try the mac&cheese appetizer. Couldn't stop eating it.

All had excellent meals. I had Roast Duck and enjoyed it greatly. The bakes seafood combo was the second fav at our table. Drinks excellent. A touch pricey.
