Amazing! Food delicious. Tables set very far apart under the tent so super comfortable being out to dinner for first time. Service was exceptional. Such a positive experience.

Moonshine followed social distance guidelines and all other guidelines for reopening. This was our first time visiting a restaurant since covid and we are so glad we went with moonshine. We felt comfortable and the food was just as amazing as we remember.

The first night Moonshine was open since the lockdown. It was very comfortable dining al fresco and the service was excellent. The food was also well prepared as always and the whole experience was very pleasant. The servers wore face masks and gloves and the menus were scanned by our phones and we read them on our phones. Excellent meal!

The staff could not have been any friendlier or responsive. Food was delicious and portions were large. We could not finish our dinners and walked away feeling stuffed. Cocktails were delicious. Cannot wait to go back.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
