The Blue Moon had always been a favorite for special occasion dining. Our last visit, however, was very disappointing. My steak had to be returned and the twice-baked potato was under-cooked. As I mentioned to the server, I've had better steak at Texas Roadhouse.

I have dined here several times and never been disappointed. The food and service are very good, love the ambiance in a brownstone with a garden room in back. Probaly best to make a reservation if you are going on a weekend. We dine here fairly often with friends, have a cocktail and really excellent food. Darryl, the owner, and... More

Shared a delicious meal with my husband and brother in law in this small rather unassuming little restaurant. The menu is quite varied with steaks, seafood, French dishes and pasta. We all selected beef in a petite filet. They arrived hot and sizzling, cooked to each ones specification. My brother in law's steak arrived with the message that the chef... More

If you are a single traveler, the service at the bar is very good. The bartender answered all my questions and made recommendations that suited my needs. The presentation of the food is nice. It is an expensive restaurant, but a nice place to splurge.

We selected Blue Moon based on the recommendation of our B&B host. The food was very good, although somewhat pricey. We knew that from reviewing the menu at the B&B. We wanted a romantic dinner. The cafe is a trendy tastefully decorated restored row house storefront. Beautiful tin ceiling. We dined early and were two of few patrons initially. While... More

I have eaten here multiple times and can't seem to order anything but steak. Just because there steak is always cooked perfectly (I get a medium rare when they are cooked properly, no blood pooled on the steak). I have ordered their aged New York strip and their filet. Both were excellent. The ambience of the restaurant is very mellow... More

Using local farm to table approach, the food is a delight visually and taste is fabulous. Presentation is consistently attractive, the menu is variable, and a bit of something for everyone. The pork chop with rhubarb chutney was seared and done perfectly. The scallops had a good sear and also were succulent and tasty. The sides were fresh an!d delicious.... More

Five Stars is not good enough for this restaurant. The ambiance is great. The food is the best in York county. In fact I have reviewed restaurants across the country and this is as good as it gets. The service is great (attentive but not overbearing). The Owner goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect. Specials... More
