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.

Love the spinach dish! A little cold when door was open to vent air. Perhaps a longer curtain to shelter that table. Awesome

We have been going here for a few years now and the food has always been fantastic. Its a nice quiet place with limited seating, tucked away from the noisy bars and street traffic.
Just go, you will love it!

I'm so glad that downtown Tacoma now has so many dining options, but I find myself returning to Over the Moon because it's so comfortable and homespun, but with creative, very well-prepared food and good service.

Asked for something special for mine and my wife’s 2 year anniversary. We got rose pedals and two small cut roses on the table for no extra charge. We came here on our first date and will make sure we come here for our next special occasion. The food and service were amazing too, a hidden gem in Tacoma.

Best night ever! For appetizer we did the clams in garlic wine sauce, divine! The roasted duck breast was the best I've ever had with incredible mashed potatoes and an assortment of roasted vegetables. Amazing earl gray chocolate mousse pudding for dessert, all perfectly paired with a bottle of the sauvignon blanc. Over the moon is an understatement, will definitely be darkening these doors again

The wine and service were good, but the food was pretty average for the price. We ordered the crab bisque which was the highlight. Also the goddess salad which tasted fresh but lacked flavor. Then came two pastas - a butternut squash one that had a very heavy cream sauce. Wasn't too flavorful and still very heavy. The bolognese also seemed to lack something - the pieces of meat remained a bit large for something that's supposed to be slow cooked for hours. Overall, felt like a meal that would have been fine to create at home, but I expected a lot more from an expensive restaurant that we went to for a special occasion.

Over the Moon has a romantic cozy vibe. The menu has great choices and each selection is very well prepared. The crab bisque is the best ever. Pasta bowls are a great option for comforting entrees. We have never been disappointed at this location.

I was looking for a quiet romantic restaurant -- and this place delivered. The ambience is amazing. Subdued lighting, dark reds and wood. The food was amazing -- the Ragu I had tasted exactly like it was described. The bread pudding tasted like it was described. I got major points with my girlfriend for taking her there. It was money very well spent. A hidden jewel of a restaurant. Try it!!!

Our first visit and very happy with our choices. Bolonaise was rich and flavorful. The shrimp pasta was creamy and delicious. The shrimp was not over cooked ( as it often is in other restaurants ). Salads were also delicious. There is a nice solection of wines. The seating was not that comfortable which is my only complaint.

Our "go to" spot for our pre-show meal before heading to the Rialto to see the annual Christmas Revels show (or any other show in the theater district!). Always great food and a wonderful small restaurant atmosphere. Make sure to get a reservation early and give yourself enough time to enjoy yourself.

My husband and I wanted someplace special to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. I found "Over the Moon" by going on line. We wanted someplace quiet and intimate to celebrate our special day. We were very pleased with the service and the menu. The food was very flavorful. I liked that the food is locally resourced when possible. The atmosphere was pleasant. We were able to have a conversation without having to talk over others. Our server was very attentive. At the end of our meal she presented us with 2 roses and wished us a happy anniversary. We felt very special !

We have been dining in Over the Moon Cafe since it opened several years ago. It is consistently wonderful in the service and food. The wine list is small but with extremely great choices. The owner, Deanna, is a gem and always there to see to your needs. I would give it a ten star if i could.
