A good menu-wine and food-and an offbeat location that makes this an unique dining experience. Some of the prices are a bit on the high side but you won’t be disappointed

The caeser salad dressing had a mustard flavor and the salad was topped with prosciutto and no anchovies were evident. The mashed potatoes that came with my mediocre steak were accompanied with a gravy containing more mustard. The pinot noir was good though.

There is generally ample street parking all within a few blocks of Over the Moon. If you get lucky, you'll end up less than a block away. Street parking is metered, but the charges are next to nothing compared to most... More
