My March 24, 2021 birthday dinner at Moonstruck was one of the best I have ever had. The service, the food and the atmosphere were exceptional. Both my husband and I truly enjoyed the evening from our cocktails to dessert.

The angel hair pasta with Bolognese sauce was delicious as well as the liver, bacon and onion which is my favorite.
I had an Aperol Spritzer which was very good, not too sweet. I will order it again.
Love the ambience, very relaxing and romantic!

Always one of our favorite places to go. We are glad we can eat inside again and we feel very safe there because they have lots of room to spread customers out. Our meal was excellent, as usual.

We went for Valentine’s Day so there was a special menu. It’s beautiful and social distancing is enforced but the amount of food that you get for the price is so little

We love having Moonstruck as our go to place for our wedding anniversary and Valentines Day. Both service and food are always top shelf and you can't beat the ambience. From the greeter/host/hostess down to the wait staff and servers you will enjoy the experience. Let's not forget kudos to the kitchen staff and chefs. They know their culinary art.

We celebrated Valentines at Moonstruck. As always the people are very friendly and our waiter was great. The food is really very good. The baked oysters were quite tasty and cooked perfectly. The peppers stuffed with veal sausage are a treat! We had the baked salmon stuffed with crab and scallops and the fish was cooked just beautifully tender and delicious. We love this place and look forward to our next visit!

I really wanted to rate Monstruckat 4.5 stars, but not a choice. Food was great. Wine list very interesting without being miles long (and I examine the wine list first for any new restaurant). Service was impeccable. noise (besides us contributing) was mild, but it was at 25% or 50% occupancy rule.

We love this restaurant. The food is really good all made on site.it is perfectly cooked, fish is easy to overcook but they do it right. We love the nuance and layering of herbs and spices. The lemon tart was wonderful. They understand service, friendly and attentive is standard. Try them out, you will be pleased!

We love this restaurant. It is already set up for the social distancing with their decor, has been separations from the opening of the restaurant. The food is always delicious and
the coffee is outstanding.

There would have been higher marks for ambiance, however there was a customer
who was very loud and took away from our experience. Not the restaurants fault.

Hadn't been to Moonstruck in a number of years and was pleasantly surprised.
Food was very good and the service was excellent.
Tables were socially distanced and you felt like you had your own private table
which made for a night where conversation was at a normal tone.
The entire staff was very friendly and made you feel at home.
Will be going back soon.
