New Moon is without a doubt the best food any of us in our large party have ever eaten! The atmosphere is very elegant, the wine was incredible, and the food was life changing. NO JOKE! Our waiter was from France and was one of the kindest, most pleasant people ever!

We ate here twice and both times we had extremely flavorful food. Our servers were very friendly and interested in providing us with an enjoyable dining experience. We will be returning to this gem of a restaurant.

What a wonderful find. We had a terrific, leisurely lunch with wine. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was casual yet sophisticated. Wish we lived in the area to try it for dinner.

We were looking for a place for lunch & this was at the top of the list. We looked at the menu and were intrigued but it looked a little more upscale than we were planning on.

We have eaten here before, for lunch, when driving through Nevada City. This time we had dinner and it was great. Both my wife and I liked the dinner selections we had and the setting makes for a memorable evening.

We had dinner there recently and it was just fantastic. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful evening. The food was absolutely delicious (we had the two fish specials) and our waiter was just terrific. We asked him about wine pairings with our food and he brought out three "tastes" that he thought we might like. We... More

New moon has always been a benchmark for very good cuisines, my son in law went there and said he had the best ravioli's he ever had, they use to have a great appetizer, a goat cheese I believe in philo baked with pistachio and a blackberry reduction, I hope they bring this back

This was our first time here and we were impressed. It's the best cooking with local ingredients that we've found in Nevada City. We sat outside on the porch after the days heat was gone. I had the tortilla soup which was pretty good but not the best I've had in Mexico. We also had the tarragon chicken, ravioli, and... More
