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

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
