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

A big thank you to my friends Parrish and Joanna, for taking me here for dinner, up to this point I didn't know it existed (I'm not from Redding, but do visit quite often. First impressions, not what you expect when you pull up outside, I like that you can watch the kitchen at work from your table, my other... More

This bistro in an out of the way place in Redding has amazing food and changes the menu frequently. If you find a favorite, you should go more than once because it won't be on the menu long. The owner(s) are on premises to ensure quality in what is served. The prices may be higher than other places, but sadly... More

I love the fact that you can eat healthy and it doesnt have to taste bad! Moonstone Bistro is one of my favorite places to eat. The food and the service is top notch!!! I like local restaurants over big chain places.

2 visits--Same results. Buffalo meatloaf was bland and dry. Chicken was attractive but tough and dry. Appetizers were good. I was told a table we asked for was reserved but no one was seated there during our visit.

I've eaten here several times for lunch and dinner. It is quite expensive but the food presentation seems very high end for Redding. The head chef and owner Che Stedman has professional training and does a great job. The menus change often and include seasonal local vegetables. The French press coffee is so good. I normally have mine black but... More

Maria gave us wonderful service and we enjoyed the pate, house salad & the teriyaki swiss burger. The food is beautifully executed (tasty too). I would agree that it's a little tight & should have followed a previous reviewer's suggestion & reserved a booth. Very crowded Wednesday night, be sure & make reservations.

First timers, wife and I adventured out. Knew it was going to be a bit pricey compared to other restaurants in our area. Very nice atmosphere, if you sat at the bar area you could watch your food being prepared. We were seated immediately, place was packed and it was a Wed night. Allison was our waitress, sorry if i...

Set in a strip mall, the Moonstone Bistro may be Redding's greatest dining gem. If you're a fan of local restaurants with talented chefs, healthy fare and meat-eater + some vegetarian options, this is the place for you. We had a wonderful dinner here, with ample portions: my husband ordered the delectable filet mignon and I had the adobo pork,... More
