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.

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

Very cozy and romantic spot. Small and casual with a high end feel. The service was the perfect blend of attentive and unrushed. Our table had a great book of poetry about love and relationships, and a box of handwritten notes left by previous diners, both nice touches for a date night.

Super cafe with great vibe. Had mothers day lunch here and everyone enjoyed themselves, great vibe and very cool classic Louise Armstrong and the like, background music. Food was very good, few options, but solid rustic selection for everyone.

We had a fantastic experience... the restaurant is cute and eclectic, located in an equally eclectic, artsy part of town called Opera Alley. The food was amazing, as were the staff. I'm not sure how we have never heard of this place before, but will definitely be back!

I had the jumbo shrimp with the garlic cream sauce. It was AMAZING. I finished my entire plate which never happens. Also had a lovely Chardonnay blend - Scaia that we enjoyed as well.

Very special cozy venue. Excellent service and consideration. Charming with unique bathroom decor. Good portion sizes and very high quality ingredients. The homemade bread is outstanding do not pass it up. Perfect with a glass of wine and plenty of butter. Everything on the menu was tempting. Celebrated a friend's birthday here and it was wonderful to have a quiet intimate spot with good food and wine plus no loud background noise or feeling rushed.

This place was perfect! I was looking for a memorable place to take someone for our first date. I saw the pictures and fell in love with the small and eclectic style of this place. I was not disappointed. From the comfy mismatched chairs, to the perfect level of lighting for ambience, to the absolutely delicious food. She had the Salmon as that is one of her favorite meals and she loved it! I tried the Posh Grilled Cheese sandwich and it was SOOO GOOD! A nice topper to the evening was the boxes that sit on the tables that are full of love notes written by the past patrons. It was fun and romantic to read them. I even came across one that was almost as if I was writing it about that very evening. Needless to say I was told that I knocked it out of the park with my choice of Over the Moon Cafe. It was an amazing place and an amazing evening that we hope to repeat in the future.

Food was tasty and the portions were generous. There could have been more choices for a side salad. Pairing potato soup with potato salad was a bit much. Still,I would definitely return.

We had a reservation for a late dinner and we were delayed attendance at our granddaughter's high school choir competition/performance which ran a bit long. Once it was obvious that we'd be late, I phoned on my way to the car. They were very accommodating and appreciative for the heads up. Everything about our experience met or exceeded the claims by and for the restaurant.

Great small, intimate, quirky restaurant near theater district in Tacoma. They have small plates, which are filling, and elegant mains. We had the bread and cheese, which was excellent, as was the spinach dip. The prices are on the high end, but it's the kind of place you can spend time in intimate and relaxed dining with attentive and knowledgeable staff. We just had small plates this time, but have had their full dinners before and highly recommend a visit!! Note: it is a small restaurant so reservations on Open Table are a good idea-when plays are on at the Pantages they fill up quickly!

I’ve been here a few times...tonight was the best. The food was absolutely exquisite...I had the king salmon with aspersgus and mashed potatoes, all perfectly and deliciously prepared. My lady friend had a chicken dish she could not stop raving about. While we couldn’t fit desert, those are always amazing. The wine list is equally amazing. The entire evening was Over the Moon...never disappoints. Recommended most highly!

This was our first visit, and we found it a wonderful experience. The food was top quality, the service was perfect, and the atmosphere was the best for quiet conversation that you didn't have to shout over the background noise to make yourself heard. We will be back to enjoy another great evening of food and conversation.
