Amazing dinner from the bread and oil, to the cocktail, to the delicious short rib and haddock! We come every year on my birthday for good reason!

Great food, cocktails and ambiance . It’s not a triple play, it’s a grand slam home run.

I am gluten free/allergic to eggs and they provided food that was extremely tasty and I didn't get sick! I am generally afraid to eat out but Blue Moon did a great job!

Another excellent experience. I’ll sum it up by saying that as we were driving away my wife noted that we’ve never had less than excellent food and service here. She’s right.

This building has been many types of restaurants over the years - this is by far the best one yet! Good food, friendly servers, and quiet enough that you can have a conversation over really good food!

My only complaint is with the seats. They are not very comfortable. They push you forwards. Food was great as was the staff. We will go back.

Two of the five entree's at our table were served luke warm. Very dissapointed with the flavor and quality of the vegetable ragu and the steak entree's.
We had very good xperiences at Blue Moon in the past which is why this is worth noting.

This place never disappoints. Always great locally sourced food and drinks, outstanding seasonal selections and caters well to the general omnivore to those with food allergies or seeking more vegetarian or vegan options. Service is top notch with a team approach that knows exactly when you are in need of attention. Very nice ambiance and easy to have great conversation.

I think our night was a fluke, but I’m pretty sure the chef was new and we smelled smoke from the kitchen twice. One time I think it was our dinner because it took forever to come out. Our meals were mediocre, but the first time we came it was the best meal we have had in any place in NH. I’d give it a try, for sure, and we will too. Just hoping our trip there for our 15 anniversary on Saturday night was a one-off bad meal.

This place is always amazing. The service is second to none and the food always has a depth of flavor that most places lack.

Yes, I would recommend this restaurant. All the food tasted very good. I had the strip steak and my husband had the haddock. My steak had a bit of gristle which I feel should have been trimmed off. The haddock was outstanding.

We had creme brulee and some port for dessert. The dessert was amazing I had never had port before and I chose a flight. The waitress was kind enough to tell me the different ones. In hindsight I should have asked her to leave the list as now I have forgotten what each was.

I understand that since it is farm to table, that the choices are limited. So having a single steak, pork, chicken etc makes sense. What was there was well cooked and with a lovely presentation.

The food & drink menu were very inventive.
The tables for 2 were small even though there was ample space for larger tables.
The decor was spartan, with hardwood floors & moderately low ceilings.
This lead to a very loud atmosphere.

First time at Blue moon Evolution. Loved everything. Food was delicious, atmosphere was very cozy, customer service was excellent, bathroom was clean,prices were reasonable for lunch. I loved the vegan options!
My only negative was that I wish they would have some of the dinner options available at lunch time because they really sound good but I never eat out at dinner time. Entree options at lunch instead of just soups, salads, and sandwiches would be appreciated.

Excellent food, and waitstaff was friendly and accommodating. The unfortunate part was waiting for the food to arrive. Although they provided bread and starters fairly quickly, we waited 35 minutes for our actual meal since ordering it. I understand everything is fresh here, but not the lack of staff in the kitchen to get that food prepped and cooked. Overall it was a good experience.

Blue Moon is simply wonderful. The food was great, the ambience was lovely and the service was perfect. We particularly enjoyed the owner treating us to herb-infused water at the end of the meal. It was so refreshing and was the perfect way to end the dinner. I will be back and will bring more friends.

BLUE MOON WAS A WONDERFUL LUNCHTIME DESTINATION. WE WERE WELCOMED ENTHUSIASTICALLY BY THE HOSTESS, SEATED RIGHT AWAY, AND ATTENDED TO BY OUR WAITRESS IMMEDIATELY. OUR COCKTAILS WERE FRESHLY MADE AND DELICIOUS. THE ONLY PROBLEM WE HAD WAS CHOOSING OUR MEALS FROM THE MENU, WHERE EVERYTHING SOUNDED SCRUMPTIOUS AND UNIQUE. WE HAD THE DEVILED EGGS, THE BOWL AND BOARD, THE CALIFORNIAN CHICKEN SANDWICH AND THE BURGER. ALL OUR CHOICES WERE PRESENTED BEAUTIFULLY AND WERE DELECTABLE. WE ENDED OUR MEAL WITH COFFEES AND THE CHOCOLATE TORTE AND A CREME BRULEE THAT WERE OUT OF THIS WORLD. WE WILL BE BACK FOR DINNER!
