We are a small 38-seat, family, scratch kitchen boutique-style restaurant and it is our desire to bring you a warm and welcoming dining experience. I strive to keep our menus fresh and updated for every season, while rotating customer favorites. We source local products as much as possible. Our primary focus is fresh, robust menu items, with emphasis on both protein and pasta dishes.

Dinner features various entrees , starters, salads and desserts. There is a heavy emphasis on both Italian and French fare, along with my love of comfort food. I do my best to provide wines that are of good quality, are affordable and approachable. We offer some amazing craft cocktails with top shelf liquors. No patron bar seating is available.

Turn in to the Alley and experience a truly unique fine dining experience in an atmosphere of understated elegance. "Cafe" -- An unpretentious restaurant.

I’d been wanting to try this restaurant for months and months. We loved it! Great food, attentive but discreet service, and that wonderful little box on the table!

We will be back!

Fantastic restaurant for a date night. We arrived early in the evening and where enjoying the wine, food ambiance and great service so much that we lost track of time. 4 1/2 hours later and it was time to close. We were the last ones there and still they did not rush us to leave. It made for the perfect evening.
The duck breast and Fidélitas Malbec where a winning combination. The desserts fantastic!

The creamy roasted Brussels sprouts were amazing! Had the Pork Bolognese which was spicy and delicious, husband had the braised short ribs, which he said was delicious as well. Shared bread pudding for dessert - fantastic! Only critique is they have a $25 corkage fee.

Kitchy decor with old used chairs & tables. Food was extremely average for the price. Wine list was great! Boxes on table containing hand written notes from other customers were worthless - who cares what someone that you don’t even know is expressing & you have no idea as to when or why?

One of the best dining experiences that we have experienced together! Such a small cute place with a romantic atmosphere and the service was outstanding. Our server was kind and friendly and very knowledgeable of the menu. We both have strict dietary needs and she was understanding and knew exactly what we could have. One of the best date nights we have had!

We had not been to Over The Moon for quite awhile, then thought that would be a great Christmas gift for our son and wife. First time for them and it was great. So.... I picked it for our Valentine Dinner that we always spend with another couple (a week after Valentine this year because of our scheduling problems!!). It was exceptional. The food was wonderful, we love the eclectic décor and our waitress was fun and professional. I have no idea why we waited so long to get back to Over The Moon - that won't happen again!

Everything was wonderful! We were welcomed right in, very cozy in the plush wingback chairs, the food came out steaming hot, and was delicious. I recommend this spot to anyone looking for a romantic setting.

One of the most romantic spots in the PNW. They nail the ambience - mellow music, dim mood lighting and intimate dining spaces. The menu is generally consistent (I think it may change some seasonally) and the food quality and presentation is outstanding. Food flavors are complex and there is a reasonably priced array of wines for which to pair.

Over the Moon was true to its name: it left us over the moon with happiness. The food was simply outstanding. We tried the clam and Italian sausage in garlic butter sauce, the crab bisque, the lobster Mac and cheese, the short rib ragu and the house made vanilla ice cream with berry compote. Not a bad bite in the meal. Service was unobtrusive and professional. The venue is dark, romantic, comfy and intimate. This is a perfect place for a third date, an anniversary or any other special moment. We'll be back. Soon!

I parked on Opera Alley and it looked like a back lot at a movie studio. The street was clean, the buildings are colorful, and no one else was around. Over the Moon Cafe is a boutique restaurant. The ambiance is peaceful and romantic. Reading the love notes to my wife from the note box was unique and interesting and lead to a fun conversation. Service is great and the food was really good. I had the duck and it was very savory. Lastly, the pricing was reasonable for a boutique restaurant. Will certainly come here again and recommend to friends.

The Ribeye is one of the best steaks I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Cocktails are good, too.
