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.

It was a very cozy , nice place for a romantic dinner. Decor was very nice and unique.
Service was top notch, but the food wasn’t amazing for the price, pretty good but not better than I could make at home.

The creamy Brussel sprouts were AMAZING

First time there and absolutely love it! Cozy feel and beautiful surroundings in a historic building. Delicious menu with something for everyone. It’s a hidden treasure and I can’t wait to go back.

This was our 4th time to Over the Moon and we were very disappointed. We've always loved the food but this time both my and my wife's food was way below par. My Jumbo shrimp and noodles had a sauce that was more like flavored water and my wife's entre' was flavorless as well.
Will go back one more time hoping this was a fluke but if the food is the same as our visit last Friday it will be our last visit.

Dining in a clearly converted space. Feels like being in a dear friend's home. This is a very intimate setting and ambiance. The boxes of notes on the tables are such a treat reliving moments that happened at the very table you are sitting. The service was great. Hostess and waitress were kind and quick. The food is very well prepared. Again it is like eating at a friend's home if your friend were a master chef. 100% recommend and I can't wait to go back.

This is an intimate, quiet date, cafe type restaurant. We celebrated our 10th anniversary and had a wonderful experience. I enjoyed a flavorful, tender steak. The shrimp and cheesy grits were perfect for my southern born husband. Everything about the ambiance was as we hoped with scattered red rose petals and a sweet Anniversary card ready at the table. We recommend this place and really enjoyed it.

Fantastic find in Tacoma! Nestled in the theater district, this intimate cafe provides superbly prepared food accented by their pinnacle class service. Decor takes you "backstage" with cozy and romantic tables. Over The Moon Cafe is my new favorite.

The person who ordered the zucchini lasagne loved it. I ordered the short ribs which were fine, not exceptional and paired with ordinary pasta & the sauce was nearly as rich as when I make it at home, watery, in fact. My husband sent the salmon back--he was born in Alaska and knows when fish is not too fresh. His replacement steak was good. The person who ordered the chicken said it had good flavor, but was dry. Not what we expected given other good reviews.

Love it. Food fabulous. Staff connects with patrons. Now serving limited cocktails. What’s not to love?
Side note- I complimented the staff on my Manhattan and the individual who made my cocktail was so sweet as to visit me at my table to tell me the history of the ingredients he had chosen. It was a very nice connection.
I send all my friends here.
BTW, as an owner operated business they ask for reservation confirmation with a credit card on the Saturday I booked thru the Open Table app. If you’re unhappy with this practice, I suggest you take your chances and wait in the line to get in.
Second, it says on the website there is no bar...drinks are served at the table

* I am in no way affiliated with this business. I just find them to be outstanding .

Over the Moon is a cozy, family-owned spot with amazing food that's perfect for a date. Re: ambiance --It feels like you're backstage in an vintage theater -- my husband said "I feel like I am going to see that the Muppets are running the kitchen, and I mean that in the best way possible." He ordered the salmon and I ordered a beet/goat cheese salad and the croutes de fromage, and we both ordered the crab bisque which is the best soup I think I've ever had. Bread comes straight from the oven.

This is one of our favorite places in the Greater Seattle-Tacoma area. It always delivers on all levels: friendly service, delicious food, very pleasant ambiance. We dined with another couple this time and everyone had high praise. I also highly recommend Over the Moon Café for romantic occasions or date nights.

Always wonderful. We travel to Tacoma from Portland just for the crab bisque, which did not disappoint. The shrimp in the pasta and light cream sauce did not disappoint. And once again the not-quite-cheesecake-not-quite pie was delicious.
