I DON'T DO MEXICAN... BUT I STILL LOVE THE PLACE – OK So Mexican Food is not my thing, must be that trip to Mexico City in the 80's. But the Blue Moon is still a terrific find. The bartenders are great and service is excellent, with a laugh or a sarcastic remark... just like home. My passion is hockey and this is the bar for hockey. The owner Carlos is a hospitible guy, but finds the time to talk with his guests and hang out on occasion with the regular crowd. Try the baked-barbequed Wings, they go nice with a Labatts and a Hockey game.

This Joint Rocks – Happened to be visiting the Big Apple Last Week and Popped in for a quick Bite, Little did I realize the Huge Portions the Combo Meal offers, the Beef Enchiladas were the best I might have ever had, and the staff was VERY Friendly and very cordial. I will go out of my way next time in im in the Big Apple. Thanks Blue Moon for a great dining experience. I WILL BE BACK

Great Local Hang!!!! – Blue Moon is the bomb! A locally owned restaurant where the owner truly cares about the quality of the food and service and the experience of the patrons! A great Upper East Side location! The Blue Moon has great food, marvelous margaritas but most importantly, AMAZING chips and salsa!

My Favorite Spot in NYC!!!! – A "must-try" restaurant! I have been dining at this Upper East Side staple for years. The food is authentic, fresh and delicious, and the margaritas are the best in the city. The ambiance (inside and at the outdoor café) is inviting, cozy and fun. The entire staff is welcoming and warm, and they immediately make you feel as if you have known them for years. The service is top-notch. Make sure to ask for Carlos, Dave and Harvey. They will take great care of you!

Neighborhood Star – While plenty of mediocre bars and restaurants have come and gone in this neighborhood, The Blue Moon has held down the corner for as long as I can remember. Maybe it's the enormous portions. Maybe it's the margaritas. Maybe it's the staff. It's probably all three. Whatever it is, they're doing something right. And, by the way, if you see a bald guy with a goatee sitting at the bar, tell him he owes me money.

Great place - where everyone knows your nombre !! – Great neighborhood Mexican place.....even a West Sider makes the trip cross town for this one. Relaxed atmosphere, cool decor (love the little blue lamps!) yummy food, and big portions that won't break the bank. I have been there with a group of friends for drinks and with family for dinner, including with young children, and it is VERY kid-friendly as well....also comfortable as a female sitting at the bar by myself to watch a game or unwind. I am adicted to the salsa and nachos ! Worth the trip.
