Delicious food, pleasant and knowledgeable service. Very attentive to the gluten free person in our party.
2nd floor noise level was minimal, the fact that a table conversation was easy to carry on was important for catching up with old friends.

The spot was dope....nice and quite upstairs.....very couple appropriate...food was good and prices was fair. The truth serum drink is strong AF so be aware...its not much but that's on purpose. But great time and great service. Will revisit.

We had an issue with an oyster.... it wasn’t a good oyster and it made my fiancé very ill for the next 24 hours. As soon as he tried it, he did spit it back out but had swallowed some of the water.
Other than that mishap, everything else was spectacular.

Went on Valentine's Day and maybe best not judge on a holiday. Was very pleased with the curry soup.
i look forward to going back. Management clearly cares about their guests and you don't see that so often anymore. Nicely designed restaurant with a lot of potential. Will review again.

Had a date night on Valentine’s Day. Their prix fixe menu offerings were good but the food lacked any quality. Was not worth the $60 pp. Their servers also had no idea what table ordered what and we were almost served food/ drinks that were not ours more than once.

Bartender Sam is talented and very nice. Our server Alisse (sp?) is attentive and extraordinarily skilled in appropriate etiquette and manners. Our bronzino and risotto dinners were outstanding. Moonshine is where I go when going to Paper Mill. I live in the Manasquan Shore/River area and never miss a Moonshine chance. Thank you!

Food was flavorless and the dessert (carrot cake) was inedible due to bad flavor.
Bathrooms were FILTHY
Staff was pleasant and dealt with our bad food kindly.

Great experience, will definitely return. It got very crowded and noisy when it transitioned from dinner to club though. Maybe dinner should stop at a certain time.

Absolutely thrilled with this establishment. Passed by it for years, and so glad we finally had dinner. We were seated on the 2nd floor, overlooking the balcony. Our server for the evening was very well-versed with the menu, and is the resident mixologist. Her suggestions from wine, to cocktails, to the cheese plater were spot on! Can't wait to go back.

Carlos manages to keep a smile throughout the entire evening dealing with a group of 12 ladies!! Kudos to his positive attitude we had a great time at Moonshine tonight.

Been to this place 1000 times and never had a problem before. Makes me feel bad to write a review that’s negative since I would like to give them a pass and just say that bad experience was a One time thing. For the first time ever, the food wasn’t good not just for me but for the three other people in my party. I have to say I can’t believe that it wasn’t at least in part because there was a large party upstairs and it feels like they were given preference with regard to service as well as food and the few people in the first floor dining room suffered because of it.

Service was great - our waiter was very friendly and gave guidance on selections- everything came on time
The Gnocchi and Octopus first courses were very good
The Salmon and Lentils entrée was also very good
The Risotto Entrée was okay - cooked well just not my thing in terms of flavors
The Rum Bread Pudding was amazing - definitely to share although you may not want to!
Would definitely go back

We had a lovely evening celebrating New Years Eve and my daughters birthday. The food was great. Service was decent for the holiday. It would have been nice not to have been charged for her birthday dessert or the kids meal since it was a Tuesday and children eat free.
Overall, nice place to have dinner.

We went for brunch with Santa and it was very cute! Santa read a story to the kids and then took pictures, he and Mrs clause were very personable and funny. They had an affordable brunch menu and as usual the food was fantastic! I will definitely be back next year for brunch with Santa.

We were disappointed on our last experience at MoonShine. The room was very dark - we had to use flashlights to read the menu. Specials were read to us without prices. I asked for the whole bronzino to be filleted, but I had trouble eating it with all the bones that remained. Not sure if we’ll go back.

Overall a good experience - not the first time we've been here. Excellent food/dishes - big plus! Minor issues - the table was in the middle of foot traffic. Initially requested cappuccino was completely cold - they did fix it right away.

The food was delicious. I had a burger and carrot cake for desert...both of which where yummy. We went for Brunch on a Sunday. There was 2 other large tables besides us that seemed to be celebrating a birthday or event. We were a party of 6. The service was my only complaint. We asked for more water and more ketchup b/c no one came over to our table to see if we needed anything. Once we did ask, they totally forgot. Coffee and Hot tea came in such a small cup. They had lattes but no skim milk to make them with...thought that was strange. Overall, the food was good but service needs improvement!

I have been coming for years and the food was always good. Saturday night was a bust. The food was not good. Everything was drenched in oil. Dessert cheesecake was inedible. While our waiter was so nice and sweet, we could barely hear him with the noise level. We sat in-between two speakers and the result was loud noise, not music.

We made reservations a week early . We were sat next to the bathroom which I hate, with plenty of open tables around us. The octopus was hard as a rock and the service was lacking. They never came back around to get another drink Order after the first one.

Overall this is a good restaurant - the service was probably the best part - several, very attentive people checking in and making sure everything was on point. When they were out of the drink we requested, they offered to substitute another, free of charge (that substitute accidentally wound up on our bill anyway, but when this was pointed out they very graciously removed it). Our actual server was very polite and attentive, but was new and was not yet familiar with the food (mispronounced about 5 of the menu items and it was clear probably had not tasted them - at first it was hard to know what she was talking about - this is not a big deal but makes the restaurant look less polished than it is - would be worth their making sure new staff can pronounce ingredients and dishes that may be unfamiliar to them). Food was creative and overall very tasty. Wish they had an additional vegan entree.

RE: atmosphere, it seems as though this place still has not decided quite what it wants to be. Outside there are purple lights and give a dance club vibe. Inside it's painted very dark throughout, and the downstairs read more like a 20-30 something bar or club. Upstairs it's still pretty dark and the decor gives a nod to the club feel but it's more of a restaurant atmosphere. We had booked the dinner here b/c of the great reviews, but had we just driven by we never would have thought to check it out as a restaurant.

Only other thing that is absolutely no big deal but may be worth the restaurant paying attention is the little details - not sure why a restaurant that aims to appear higher end would stock Bud Light, and when we walked in, noticed a bag of sugared mini donuts on the hostess desk - again, not a significant thing, but makes the place look less upscale. Staff are almost all very young and although super nice, would be worth training them that the little details contribute to the overall ambience. But again, service generally extremely good and very attentive.
