We arrived at 4:30 only to be told that they don't serve dinner until 5. They then informed us we can wait on the first floor bar area or out on the balcony. It was our choice but we could have drinks and appetizers, but it was not required. It was a very nice day so we sat on the balcony overlooking Lake Ave, and the lake. I had a Guinness and my wife ordered a Mojito. They brought out 2 small cups. 1 had assorted nuts and the other had unpitted kalamata and green olives (a small paper cup was supplied for the pits). I found this interesting. We ordered the "Frito Misto" which was fried calamari, shrimp and sea scallops. The "appetizer" could have, and would have, been enough for at least 4 people. We did eat it all. It was excellent, especially the scallops (note: only 4 each shrimp and scallops). Approximately 4:50 or so, we were told our table was almost ready, and someone would be by to bring all of our items upstairs. The dining rooms are on the second and third floors, but they do have an elevator if you cannot take the stairs. We sat on the front balcony again. My wife ordered "Orecchiette Solstizio" ($21). It was a very small pasta and veggie mix with fresh mozzarella. Very Good! It came in a large bowl and was a very large portion. I ordered "Thai Salmon" ($26). It said spicy but it was very, very lightly spiced, which I preferred, and which the waitress assured me. It was served over rice with string beans, and a cilantro cucumber salsa. I was hesitant of the cucumber, but it was diced in small "cubes" and appeared to be only the outer part. However, the salsa was great. The salmon was also great, and a large portion for the price. We also ate all of this! Finally, we ordered a piece of Tiramisu. It was one of the best we have had. The restaurant is somewhat "upscale." Very clean, tablecloths, a lot of staff, etc. The dress code I would call "modified" business. Most were dressed well (no ties or anything that drastic). But a few men had flip flops, and beach type shirts. I wore sneakers, cargo type shorts, and a collared pullover shirt. No one said anything. All in all, it was a very good evening. The staff were friendly and accommodating. There was plenty of food, and it was very good. The total price with appetizer (not tip) was $95. For the amount of food, with the drinks I would not call this expensive. It was a little pricey, and a little more than we normally would spend. But we considered it a "vacation day" at a shore town, which usually is expensive. We will visit Moonstruck again.
