“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013

I've never had a bad lunch at Half Moon. I've been going to this restaurant for 10 years and the food is excellent. Even the pizza are wonderful.

“trendy, friendly, and room for improvements”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Met friends for a late morning get together, the cappuccino was so-so, the cinnamon muffin was very good, the regular coffee was boring, the turkey wrap was served HOT, and returned, normally wraps are served cold, unless stated. They quickly and cheerfully made another. However, the turkey was very salty, and the sun-dried tomatoes were gummy, not able to be chewed. The place itself is very cute, and comfortable. Wheelchair accessible, and clean ladies room. They have a good variety of coffee drinks, and hot teas, and breakfast items, as well as lunch. I will try again, and hopefully they will adjust the menu regarding if certain items are served hot or cold. The staff was wonderful. The prices are fair. There is limited outdoor seating. I rather order at the table, than stand in line, that too should be changed. The parking out front is limited, but there is parking in the rear.

“Delightful gem, Inspired food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

After two days of helping our son move, I craved something light, nourishing, and delicious. Our son sent us to The Half Moon. Incredible, just incredible! I had three juicy slices of honeydew melon, draped with excellent Prosciutto, and nestled between on a bed of fresh greens were perfectly cooked-perhaps grilled, ( no grill marks, but a bit of tasty char) calamari. It is so unusual to get squid that is not over-cooked, but this was perfect! In thinking about how to replicate this dish at home, all I can think of is fresh and small. That calamari was simply cooked, with just a film of oil, salt, and pepper, but it was exquisite. My husband's pastrami panini was also extraordinary. The restaurant is BYOB, so my husband walked down the street to a wine store, where he told the owner what we were eating and he matched my food with a chilled Riesling, which is my husband's favorite wine so he was happy to have it with his panini. A truly great experience all around! Made up for all that work moving...

“pretty good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

The atmosphere here is unique. You place your order at the counter, take a seat, and then from that point on, a waiter/waitress will take care of you. Not quite sure why they do it that way because it tends to become chaotic but they must have a method for their maddness. The standard menu has several choices.....sandwiches, wraps, salads, and entrees. They also have numerous specials on the special menu board every day. Their sandwiches, wraps, pizza, and salads are decently priced.....However, their entrees are a bit pricy considering you get no soup/salad with them. That aside, the food is tasty and the service friendly.

“really like this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I have been to this restaurant many times, but this was my first visit back since 2009. Half Moon is great for casual dining, really good food, and very reasonable prices. I've always gotten their panini, which are a good bet. I especially like the Classico panini, which is a simple ham and cheese sandwich. Also good is the California wrap with turkey, avocado, and peppercorn dressing. Desserts are really good, too. A very popular place, and with good reason.
