“Just Fantastic!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Hands down, one of the best restaurants in the area! The fact that this eclectic little BYOB is owned, managed and staffed by 16 - maybe 22 year olds should put other established eateries to shame. Moose has an affordable price-fixed 2 or 3 course dinner menu with lots of choices. Also, a terrific brunch on the weekends. Skylar is an extraordinary young man who has travelled to France and NYC to develop his knowledge.
What a great place to bring your kids for a special family dinner! We made sure to point out to our teenager that while other kids are on the sofa playing video games, these kids are running a successful business! One note- it's disappointing to see other adult patrons getting drunk while dining and making fools of themselves, especially in front of an amazing group of high school and college age staff. This has happened to us twice. We were embarrassed for them.

“WOW says it all!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Wonderful BYOB in New Hope Pa. Food was flavorful and well prepared. We had the grilled salmon and ginger beer braised pork shank, both were very tasty and well portioned. The vegetable that came with both was pureed carrots, the only way to describe them was Yum! BYOB is always a plus, dinner is price fixed so three course dinner for four was $106.00 The deserts were fresh and homemade and the appetizers were great, I had the grilled shrimp and they were superb, my wife had the beet salad that she loved. Will definitely return the next time we are in New Hope. One thing to keep in mind cash or personal check only!

“A must in New Hope”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

While strolling New Hope and reading menus a couple was exiting Cafe Blue Moose telling us we have to try it and recommended menu items. So glad we took their advice. Cafe Blue Moose is staffed by 16 to 21 year olds, and it could put to shame any 5 star restaurant, anywhere! The waitstaff was pleasant and professional, it is Prix Fixe with enough of a variety to please any appetite. I would have been happy with the grilled shrimp salad alone, but then came our entrees, chicken marsala, beef bourginone, and grilled mahi, to top it off try the chocolate mousse or the brownie. Make Cafe Blue Moose is an incredible delight don't pass this by if you are in the New Hope area.

Reviewed November 7, 2012

The food was wonderful... innovative, delicious, plentiful, and truly the best bang for the buck. The place is charming and the service is delightful. I have been recommending Cafe Blue Moose to many friends and acquaintances. Go and enjoy and don't forget to BYOB.

“A Whimsical Place With Great Food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My husband and I were staying overnight (on a Thursday) in New Hope. We read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor. Once we arrived in New Hope, we quickly walked over to make a reservation.
I agree with all of the other reviewers about the excellent food and service. This is astounding considering that it is a totally youth run restaurant. I ordered a sauteed Salmon, and my husband, the skirt steak.Once seated, the waiter brought us some beautiful herbed bread in a popcorn box.
It was such a fun and playful presentation and that describes the overall tone of this restaurant.
We both ordered salads which were larger than expected, and very tasty. Our meals were perfectly prepared and we even had to take half of them home with us.
Even though the desserts looked fantastic, we simply could eat no more.
The Prix fix menu changes regularly and there is something sure to please just about everyone.
My husband even commented to the server that they should charge more than they do. And, he is right!
The restaurant will do private parties or catering for 10-30 persons.
