We tried the Chef's choice. The food was amazing! Very fresh, beautiful presentation! The menu said for 1-2 people. My husband and I split it and it was more than enough food, which our server, Jason packaged very nicely! We'll be back

I have been to The Blu Moon many times. It is my go to place for good drinks and great food. I live in town and have gone with family and friends. My personal favorites are the Lobster Nachos and their smoked wings.

Best salmon nigiri anywhere. The service is hit and miss, and is probably the one thing holding this place back. This was our second time here, and both times the service lacked. Many of the staff, including our waiter this time, seemed irritated.
