It is a good idea to make reservations at this restaurant. Service is very good. Wait staff are friendly and courteous. Food is outstanding. We had the liver and onions and my husband never eats liver but he tried it and loved it.

Shame on the Moon is a good dining experience but it's dated. Big portions of average unimaginative old school dining.
