Great location (just off of M Street in Georgetown) and great ambiance (both inside the restaurant and out on the patio). We found the staff and servers very engaging, attentive, and friendly. The food was terrific, and the happy hour prices were great!

I decided to go here after ice skating with my girlfriend who was visiting from England last December. We still lament over going there, and it's bugged me until now that I haven't reviewed it. It was a pitiful excuse for even an Italian frozen dinner. She had the chicken parmesan and it was rubbery and soggy as if it was heated in a microwave. Even the pasta itself wasn't cooked well. It looks and sounds like a nice place, but it just isn't. You'd get something better for your money if you decided to go to ...... (I hate to say it) Olive Garden.

I ordered calamari and I'm pretty sure I'm eating pig anus... Remember that article? The marinara is canned. It's not stopping me from eating it. Also its after six on a Friday and this place, is dead and I mean dead! If you hate crowds and are ok eating meh food in Gtown you're in luck!

I've been coming to Paper Moon for years and am shocked at some of these reviews!! Every time I go I have a great experience and am treated wonderfully. The last time I went was this past Sunday night. I wanted to take my wife out for a nice dinner before catching a movie down the street. We walked in and were greeted right away by the familiar faces we've come to know so well. My wife asked that we sit by the window as she loves to people watch. We ordered one of our favorite bottles of wine, Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio and the mussels as our appetizer which always go well together. We then ordered our entrees, the Salmon Alla Roma for me and the filet for my wife. My salmon came with mashed potatoes with asparagus on top and was cooked to perfection. My wife ordered her steak medium and again it was cooked perfectly. As we were finishing up our meal we were able to talk more with the waitstaff as well as the managers who are all so polite and accommodating. We didn't save room for dessert that day, but if you go, they're limoncello cake is really good! Everything here is a delight, the food, the ambiance, the staff!! What's not to like?

Food was terrible. Tiny portions. Big prices. LONG wait. This restaurant is not equipped to handle both regular clientele and out of town groups. This place was all show. DO NOT GO HERE!

This was the absolute worst experience that I have had. I went to DC for my niece's birthday. She selected Paper Moon to eat. We ate outside. It began with maybe 10 minutes after being taken to our table there was an additional table SHOVED in next to ours. My niece was then pinned against the building and flowerbed. Was unable to get out. The people sitting next to us were practically sitting on top of us. Then our food was brought out and we were both famished. My niece found a piece of foil in her dish. She handed it to me and I brought it to the waiter's attention quietly and discreetly so no other patrons became aware of what just happened. The waiter stated that he would bring it to the manager's attention. They did absolutely nothing. I was hoping at the very least maybe a complimentary drink or something of that nature. We received nothing but the $80 bill for 2. I wrote directly to the restaurant's website and they never responded to me. WORST DC EXPERIENCE EVER. They are careless, inconsiderate and disrespectful.
