I'm back here for dinner this time - my first dinner at Moonstones. I've been here several times for lunch and am happy to say dinner is just as good. My wife is lactose intolerant. The wait staff and kitchen were very helpful letting us know that something we ordered had some dairy. They also modified items to accommodate. The... More

I like their menu because it does have a good range with unusual dishes but also more traditional ones so everyone can be happy. Try the coconut pudding for dessert.

A few days ago I had the pleasure of dining at Moonstops with three other friends. Initially the oysters were a great treat to start and the gentlmen serving them were a pleasure to talk to. Our server Gwendol was such a sweetheart! She was very polite, had great recomendations and frequently checked on our well being. Such an excellent... More

Very nice place for a romantic or group dinner, depending on where you are sitting. The small side room is my favorite. My husband and I met there for the first time for a drink and married 2 years (to the date) later. Have been back 5-7 times since then. Good bar area, too.

Just went for brunch with friends. Ordered a dish that offered multiple selections: scrambled eggs, red velvet pancakes & homefries. Eggs & potatoes were swimming in Hollandaise but even worse, both items were barely room temp. Actually leaning towards cold. Really disappointed. Will never go back & would never recommend.

We went with a wide selection of tapas dishes; all were excellent although the grilled shrimp dish was too salty for some of us. Yet wait staff was friendly and attentive and, special recognition to the young ladies who ran our orders, kept our water glasses full and were, in a word, delightful. They will develop into terrific servers or... More

Hi OG Thanks so much for writing a review! We’re so please you noticed our attentive, hospitable service (full water glasses at all times one of our goals of excellent and attentive service), and we’re thrilled you made note of our "excellent" tapas and our "outstanding" truffle fries—which is definitely relative to both the costly truffle oil and parmesan cheese...

Recently returned to Moonstones getting together with a friend and what a surprise - it was a fantastic experience. Gave the Potato Pancakes another try and they were terrific. In addition enjoyed half a portion of their Tag pasta dish, which was tasty. The highlight tho was the house made Beet Ravioli's (yes I said Beet)! They arrived (four of... More

I have been there with some of my friends and found this place a good one. It has nice decor and low lighting, perfect for the evening. I tried shrimps and sea shells, they were good. Overall, a must visit the place which can offer a variety of tasty food. And yes, the staff is very very gracious.

While Moonstones has several large plates, they specialize in a wide variety of small dishes from around the world. That makes it easy to satisfy varying degrees of hunger in a group. There were three of us, and we just ordered a bunch of things. The waiter was especially helpful in suggesting that several be brought at the start, with... More

Hi Michele, Thanks so much for this stellar review. We are honored to offer such fab tapas selections to the Greater Lowell area ("Chelmsford, who knew?!") and we absolutely embrace our philosophy of "think global. eat local" while exceeding guest expectations. Glad you agree! Hope you can dine with us again soon! Sincerely, S.Plath More
