I tried this place for the first time this past week and while I was initially disappointed - they introduced a revised menu the day I visited and they had removed something I had been wanting to try (Lamb Chops), I decided to stay and give it a try ... good thing I did ... the staff were great -...

The atmosphere is nice and the wiat staff is very attentive. The truffle fries must be tried. Beyond that, the menu is somewhat electic and may not meet everyone's wishes. Their other location, Cobblestone's, has a much better overall menu selections. Good place to go but check out the menu online first.

Thank you so much TravelForLife! When the old Ground Round became available, the owners couldn't resist the great location. But being only 5 miles away from the original "Stones" restaurant (Cobblestones of Lowell), decided to go completely different from the existing American centered tavern environment. So... Global tapas was born in Chelmsford!! Hope you can visit again soon! More

Went with several friends and the food and atmosphere was great. We enjoyed the Sangria for starters and then had 10 or 12 different tapas. Good service as well as the quality of the food.

My husband and I went to Moonstones for dinner. Staff were prompt and attentive.However, too dark. Could not read the menu. We ordered a number of small plate dishes. The Caesar salad was very good, but please leave Indian food for Indians to cook. They do a great job. Desserts were great - the bread pudding and the Brazilian dessert... More

Very interesting restaurant. At first glance it seems very forgettable. The entrance is bland, the hostess took a while to get to us, and the building smelled funny. But the food!!!! Oh wow, the food was delicious!!!! Service once seated was very good too. Definitely recommend Moonstones.

Came here for business dinner midweek - service was very good and food very tasty with personal favourites being the scallops and the embutido sausages although there were no bad dishes among the 10 or so that we ate. Atmosphere in here is lively without being overbearing and service attentive without ever feeling like you were being rushed. A lot... More

Went to here with some co-workers as an easy way to spend some time talking, eating and drinking. Every dish we tried was delicious. Did an array of things from pork sliders to tuna to vegetarian dishes. They also had a nice selection of wine. Will definitely look to go back.
