When we're not looking for a big meal but want to have a drink with interesting bites of food, this is the place to go. The place is small and very popular so it's sometimes difficult to get a table but the servers will do their best to find you space at the counter area and will move you to... More

Fantastic small plates and incredibly well-priced. But go for the Cocktails! I had a bourbon-based cocktail that was savoury and sweet at the same time and a perfect compliment to our food. The restaurant is small and intimate, and if you are lucky you can sit at the back with the windows open and overlook the garden where they grow... More

I order a Ceasars cocktail almost anywhere I go. Theirs have a very unique spin. Nothing like the original, with pickled cherry, in fact, but leaves a tantalizing taste that would make any one come back for another. Involtini plate leaves the same delicious memory. So simple but impressive!

My birthday dinner was at the Moonroom and it was terrific! Tapas and desserts were delish, but the craft cocktails were to die for. One of the best Mai tais I've ever had, plus I was introduced to the French 75, aka my new favourite cocktail. Can't believe I've lived nearby for ages and only *just* discovered it -- highly,...

The first time I went to The Moonroom was for a girls' night out. The drinks were great and not at all watered down. The presentation of drinks is fantastic with the appropriate garnishes and styles of cups for each drink. The food slants towards tapas-style with small share plates such as charcuterie. While these are very pleasing to the... More

Fantastic service, unique and strong cocktails, and great food. Their cheeses are always superb and the staff offer great descriptions of their rotating menu items. Don't miss out on their nuts... they're to die for and one of the main reasons I keep coming back.

I always love going to the moonroom! This place has an amazing atmosphere and great drinks and food. The chef does a great job of the food. When the waitress explained some of the parings of cheese or other dishes I will admit I was skeptical, but when I tried it, phenomenal!!! It is a little on the smaller side... More

I went we a group of six friends. We all had amazing drinks, but when we arrived there were already quite a few people in the bar. It's not a big bar, and we soon felt like we were "in the way" for other patrons and the staff to circulate. So I would recommend 1) go in small groups or... More
