The most delicious Manhattans! ...And the service at the bar is very good. We have been there for dinner In the past, as well. It was very good, but a bit pricey.

Everything from the moment we entered to minute we left was wonderful. We were there on a Thursday so the place was only half-full.

We ate here on a Saturday evening and it was jammed-packed. The wait was 1 hour (they do not take reservations) so we opted to have appetizers and drinks in the bar area which worked out perfectly. A large appetizer and salad menu gave us many choices and we had quite enough to eat. The food is very good, not... More

Mediocre food and they don't take reservations. So, we arrived at 6pm on a Saturday. We were told that it would be a short wait. We had asked for a nice table, that... More

We celebrated two special occasions at Moonstruck last evening .....Easter and our friend's retirement. There were 6 of us. We enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail first in a cozy corner of the bar area that has chairs and love seats. After a very short time we were escorted to the second floor. I took the elevator since I have a leg... More
