I've been here several times and usually have the fish tacos as I can't imagine anything else but have tried their soups. Menu is limited but everything on the menu is fresh and imaginative. They have wonderful choices of wine and always my favorite Sauvignon Blanc by the glass. Service is excellent. My favorite eating place in Redding. Restaurant is... More

The menu is not static,constantly changing. The food is farm fresh and cooked perfectly. The service is excellent,but not overbearing. Always take out of town guests there.

We've been here before, but it's been a year or so. We had a reservation, but still had to wait a bit. We were seated outside (as requested) and the wether was perfect for a evening at Moonstone. I had the Steal Head and discovered later that the fish was actually line caught salmon from Alaska. A past employee became... More

Only had one meal here, but it sure was a good one. Loved their fish taco and then had a virgin drink for dessert. The ambiance and decor isn't my cup - but the service is friendly and professional and I like seeing the chefs at work. Also love that there are gluten free options.

This was the best find on a recent motorcycle trip. I had wanted a coffee at Starbucks next door and since it was lunchtime why not try this place. Beautiful decor, excellent menu with a very respectable wine offering. I walked in and saw several crates of heirloom tomatoes all in a row ready to be used and since it... More

Organic chicken breast cooked extremely well...very tender. Touch of bleu cheese was perfect. Service not as attentive as it could be but the wait staff was nevertheless delightful.

I have had lunch three times at Moonstone and have love it each time. The first time was St Patrick's day, so I had their special corn beef and cabbage and it was delicious! The second two times I have had the fish tacos and loved it! Everything is very high quality, creative and paired beautifully. One of the best... More
