Shame on the Moon Restaurant Review

: This warm, welcoming restaurant with its busy main room and quiet patio has been serving desert patrons classic continental cuisine since 1983. The menu features everything from wild mushroom ravioli to sautéed calf’s liver, plus homemade veal meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes, and grilled filet mignon with blue cheese glaze and Cabernet sauce. Start with the steamed-spinach napoleon and finish with one of the house-made desserts that include crème brûlée. During summer, there is a Sunday through Friday bargain prix-fixe menu.
