Food was delicious, service was excellent, just need to work on wait time. Had a 7:15 reservation and didn't sit until almost 7:45.

Branzino was fantastic, mussels were made spicy on request and were awesome, grilled octopus was delicious. Service was very good too

Love the bar area where we first had drinks. Apps were great. My dinner was great osso bucco. Other diner who had sea bass said good but salty. Other person had another fish which was tasty but a little dry. Service was great until end of meal. Waited long time for check but all in all a good time. Will return.

Their Tuna Tartare app is always excellent. Veal Osso Bucco special and Bronzino entrees were delish. Good cocktails and awesome pecan pie with gelato. Dessert was complementary since we were celebrating a birthday. It came out with fancy lit sparklers. Our server, Rich was very friendly. Nice crowd and very busy…Cafe Luna is a neighborhood gem.

BE PREPARED TO WAIT OVER AN HOUR JUST TO SIT!! Than another hour to get food. If you take a reservation, be able to honor it, especially when your reservation. Is for 9 PM!

Good food. Large portions. We had Halibut and Bronzini. Took some of both home. Very crowded and fairly noisy. They did have valet parking.

As always the food and service was wonderful. It was very overcrowded and the noise factor was overwhelming. We were six people and we had to yell to hear each other. On top of that they had music playing. Not an enjoyable environment.

excellent food, service, etc. The only issue we had was that our server never told us what the specials were. After ordering, we overheard her tell the table next to us what the evenings specials were. We may have ordered differently if we heard the specials.

Sat in the bar area which was VERY LOUD due to a band which in my opinion starts too early at around 7:30 - leaves no room for conversation over dinner. Service was ok . food was average our parmesan cheese had MOLD in it. The waiter gave us a free dessert to make up for that. I have had many great meals at Cafe Luna - i think the service gets spotty on nights when there is a band and the restaurant is very crowded.

The food is always good we have been going once a week. But the service is always lacking you sit and wait for a drink or someone to come to the table. Time to take a break

Took over 25 minutes for water
Server was clearly rushed
We had to flag down the hostess for help twice
Restaurant was out of Diet Coke due to supply shortages
Just wasn’t a great experience. Kind of a bummer

Cafe Luna had live entertainment and the singers were absolutely amazing. Although only 4 of us knew each other, the ambience felt like everyone were somehow acquainted and friendly. The food was excellent and the drinks were great. The owner even sent some after dinner drinks which was a real nice touch to end our meal. Definitely worth going back especially if you’re looking for entertainment with dinner.

One of the best Italian restaurants we’ve been to. The portion size is extraordinary and it’s delicious. The servers were good but noticed as it got more crowded we had a harder time getting waiter attention but that was minor considering staffing issues people have been having

We have dined here before and the experience was always excellent. Last night we had an 8 o’clock reservation and when we arrived the place was extremely crowded. There was a long line to the hostess stand and people were just waiting to be seated. This was uncomfortable obviously with the threat of the variant. People should have been advised to wait outside. After waiting 20 minutes the hostess stated that our table was open and just needed to be set up. After waiting another 10 minutes no one was setting up the table. They finally did seat us without any place settings which took a while. The server did arrive promptly and took our drink orders however we had to ask 3 different people for water. My wife did ask for oil for the bread which never came. The food was excellent and it was delivered in a timely fashion. The only disappointment regarding the service was that we weren’t told of the daily specials. Very upsetting when we heard the server at the next table relaying the list of specials. We have eaten here in the past and we always had an amazing experience. Last night was disappointing. We would definitely return but maybe not on a Saturday night.

Horrible! We went on a Saturday night. Big mistake. We arrived at 7:15 and didn’t get appetizers until 8:45. We were finally served dinner at 9:40pm only after I complained twice to the manager. Then the food came out wrong. No one checked on us to clean the table or refresh our drinks. I used to go to this restaurant years ago and it was better. Not sure what happened. BTW all the tables around us had a similar experience. They did take our drinks off the check but still the evening out was ruined. Should have comped the entire meal.

Brought friends because in the past food & service were excellent. Last nite the service was terrible. First they forgot my salad so I received it late & after everyone else had their appetizers. Then we waited for an hour or more for main entrees & the vegetable came cold. My husbands Parmesan has unmelted cheese. It was mostly an evening of waiting for food for extremely long time. May never go back again. So disappointed

I loved the back room … it was quieter and we were able to talk with the other couple we were dining with.
The wait staff was very good snd the food was very good.
It has an upscale feel and it runs smoothly
