LUNA Wine & Table is the culmination of John & Doreen, who moved to Northeastern PA over a decade ago from New Jersey leaving behind professional careers for the country life.  Both had a lifelong love affair with food and wine so opening a small winery and restaurant was inevitable. These days they love gardening, growing grapes, composting, caring for animals, food preservation, foraging, and off-grid-living. The entire Luna project is about building a sustainable lifestyle. Grow the food, make the wine, invite like-minded souls: earth happy. It's all connected.

Chef Doreen’s cooking dates back to days in her grandmother's kitchen in Hackensack, NJ who herself was a locally beloved chef. Doreen’s culinary skills shine on the plate. She loves the challenge of doing plant-based dishes of international cuisines and has had events for Korean, Nordic, Italian, Indian, Tibetan, mushroom, raw. She has had a deep connection with animals from a very young age, spending time in various capacities caring for them. She loves trees and LUNA is a full representation of it. People who sit outside enjoy the shade of the big tree canopy.

John spent much of his young adult life in libraries chasing college degrees. He loves used book shops and day trips. In the warmer months he spends a lot of time in his garden and vineyard and recently he planted 150 vines of Marechal Foch and Leon Millot. John's most memorable moments include going to Walden Pond where his favorite writer, Henry David Thoreau, once spent time writing. He is planning a second pilgrimage in fall, 2023!

John and Doreen are loving their adventure.

Our Story imageOur Story image

 Kozen A. Philadelphia, PA Why hasn't this place been written up in any national wine restaurant magazines? I happen to read them and there's zero mention. I had to find this restaurant by way of a Google search and discovered they were having a nine course dinner tasting. The place is a gorgeous rustic setting and the actual building is an unassuming house with a very bright, casually elegant interior. There's such a good mood inside it throws its arm around you when you walk in. What an incredible vibration. The food and wine are competitive to some of the best places in the country we've eaten at. On top of this, the place is quaint, which makes you not just another number in the room, not to mention the entire staff on this night were just four. Unbelievable. Incredible. Refreshing. First off, this place does not serve meat, any meat, and had they served meat it would become Anyplace Restaurant if you know what I mean. I imagine manly men being out of sorts in a place like this without the pork chop and ribeye. Not me. We absolutely loved every dish. The 9 courses was worth every cent and more. In NYC, Berkley, LA, Chicago, this same event would go for hundreds of dollars. I attended this event with my significant other. Let's just say this experience was a food and wine feast, spectacular in every way. The online photos of the food are beautiful, but still they don't do justice to the actual plate...the aroma and the flavors and what it tastes like with a glass of their wine. The owner who makes the wine later told me that it is "natural wine," which he described as being fermented grapes with no flavor enhancers or chemicals. I told him wine today tastes so blasé. Heavily oaked or tooty fruity. This has been an eye opener. That being, as consumers we've been hoodwinked by the vast majority of eateries out there that are serving all the same. The only thing different from one plate to the next is a splash of this or a blend of that, or maybe it's the illusion of high end food and wine. I'm sorry, I refuse to hold back. I demand more when i go out and sadly we've been going out less and less opting to cook home. Give me the love and the care put into this restaurant. We're renewed and believe again in good food. Thank you for what you folks do at LUNA. We will be back

 8/27/22 Following the map to get to Luna, you would think that someone is playing a joke or the location was plopped on the wrong spot and that you are being led to a random spot in the middle of the remote PA woods. Dirt roads, endless trees... nothing to suggest that you'd be heading towards a restaurant or any business at all. And when you see the sign and turn into the driveway, park, and walk down the path laden with random free range chickens, the last thing you'd expect is a house-turned-restaurant with an outdoor deck, just 4 or 5 tables, and small bar area. And then you'd never guess that the food and beverages (wine, mead(!)) being served are going to be local, home sourced, vegan, and super delicious. If you know this area of PA and the Southern Tier of NY you'd be all too aware that a place like this and food like this are options that you just don't find round these parts (but are constantly seeking). Oregon, for certain or possibly up at some finger lake eatery, but not in the land of 1000 clonal Italian American restaurants. It's like a restaurant you read about in a glossy magazine or from alternative universes So the food is pretty much all vegan. The menu changes all the time as it depends on what is growing at the moment (literally that day). So if you are looking for some kind of steak you should head elsewhere (and there are plenty of other places for that). But if you want stellar, innovative, epic delights that are plant based, *this* is the place to be. It's worth the drive... absolutely. Great hosts, spectacular setting, fantastic and inspiring food, tasty beverages -- what a delightful and novel experience for this area (or anywhere). Make your reservation now!

 An unexpected delight! We happened upon this experience on a last minute ride on our Side by side . And just like many experiences in Montrose Pa, you have to experience it to believe it. Come with an open mind and leave with a memory. Although we are not vegans, the food was vegan reinvented and was Delicious! The site and experience was more “authentic Big Sur” then Susquehanna County. The Wine was complete. After traveling Europe for 30+ days, John ‘s blend gave challenge to most wines tasted in Tuscany. Great Job! Looking forward to coming back. 

Kelly Odea

 When the chef stops by at your table to introduce the menu, but then has to briefly leave to round up the escaped goat, you know you're in a different world. Enjoyed the gregarious and welcoming service, the creative food and charming atmosphere. A thoroughly enjoyable all-around experience. We'll definitely be back! 

Kamal Nigam

 Previous reviews have probably said everything I have to say, but I'll still share my thoughts. The entrance is somewhat easy to miss if you're not paying attention, so take the dirt road slowly. Walking in is an experience unlike most you'll see in American dining - you're walking into a house through a dense "personal" farm. This is uniquely beautiful and sets the mood for the night. To my knowledge there are 3 employees, and they're all amazingly friendly and will have chats with you through the night if you'd like. They take great pride in what they produce - and they produce very unique and personal dishes and drinks! The menu seems to change weekly based on what they have produced from their farm and what the chef, Doreen, has concocted. She's very creative with her vegetarian and vegan dishes, and the presentation is amazing! John loves to share his latest wines and meads, and his boisterous and welcoming mood helps set the theme for your dinner. For folks who want an extremely unique and high class meal in a very casual atmosphere, I can't recommend Luna enough. If you don't appreciate this kind of atmosphere, you should learn to. You'll be a happier person if you can appreciate what Luna has to offer. 

Craig Feyerabend

 A magical experience from start to finish. The food was spectacular, the drinks were delightful (took home a bottle of Noir-Noir) and the experience was cozy, welcoming, and relaxing. We'll definitely be back. 

Stephanie Cosme

 The small staff is incredible at what they do! Delicious food and amazing drinks in a uniquely warm and inviting setting. The perfect spot for a meal or beverage after hiking in Salt Spring State Park. Couldn't recommend this spot more! 

Elias Miller

 The first place I wanted to go after not eating out for a year (pandemic)! My dad brought me here as my birthday treat. It was everything I had heard about and waited for. Best food, atmosphere, and hosts. Unique in every way. The mushrooms in my dish were grown on site and the kombucha was off the charts. 

Kelly Finan

 There is so much to say about this absolute gem. Perhaps the first point to make: Luna is original, unique, and has a deep vibe - I'd expect to find it... I don't even know where... Vancouver Island perhaps? Portland? Berkeley? I'm not at all sure, but certainly not what I expected in our corner of PA. And the second matter is *when* one might find this place. Listening to the jazz fusion on the stereo, the conversation in the kombucha bar as the topic shifted to life on Mars, looking around at the decor, I saw and heard nothing that put me later than 1974. I, for one, was delighted. And then there's John and Doreen themselves. Charming, gregarious; great hosts. John served us the kombucha flight - twelve kombuchas ranging from fruity to spicy, from wine-analog to lime-cocktail analog, from no-alcohol to rather strong (they also make a dark beer). Even if you're not a kombucha fan, there's something for you here. Doreen serves up really tasty, original food. We really enjoyed the eggplant on a bed of nut pesto, a totally unique dish; and a chickpea and cauliflower curry. Everything is served with house-baked breads. With only 4 tables, reservations are a good idea. We lucked out on our first visit. Reserve through the link on their Facebook page. The bar adjoining the dining room was lively and not unpleasantly noisy - it's not a quiet spot, but really shouldn't be - it has the heightened energy of something vibrant and out-of-the-ordinary discovered deep in the woods. 

John J.

 As someone who isn't a vegan or a vegetarian I fully went into this experience expecting to leave hungry. 3 hours, 8 dishes and 3 flights of kombucha, hard cider and mead later hunger was the farthest thing from my mind. Every dish I tried was truly enjoyable and you can tell the owners really put their heart and soul into their business. The menu is created on a rotation based on the freshest ingredients available at that time. My favorites included the shishito peppers and the duck eggs. I also had a wonderful mushroom tapas dish in a coconut cream sauce. I can't say enough good thing about this place. Between the quality of food, the kind and attentive owners, a truly unique menu and one of the most eclectic little venues I've ever seen it was a truly memorable experience and I can't wait to go back.

 Tucked behind some trees off of a dirt road, Luna is a magical place you wouldn't expect to find in rural PA. John and Doreen are an incredible husband/wife duo creating beautiful and delicious vegetarian dishes that pair amazingly with their signature wines and boozy kombucha. Luna hosts local artists and special events, such as their 9-course dinner we attended last weekend (check out their Facebook page for upcoming events and collaborations!). A guaranteed experience like no other. Make a reservation and see for yourself! 


 Joe C. Owego, NY 1212 8/14/2021 This place is tucked on a gravel road in the middle of nowhere, and the experience I had there is like no other dining experience I have ever had before. We drove up and there were chickens and a turkey waiting for us at the front entrance. As a person that is basically a carnivore, this vegetarian restaurant is brilliant, and I will happily be coming back. There are lots of really great ideas I've never thought about before (like pine syrup) and want more of. The drink selection was amazing and all homemade except for the Pennsylvania sourced liquor, which was mixed with a deft touch. The owners are fun and engaging. They are also a little non-normal which makes the atmosphere even better. As they talk to their very small number of tables, they find commonalities between us and people at other tables and are happy to make meetings happen when interesting themes among guests present themselves. Reservations are recommended as they only have like 4 or 5 tables.

I recommend it to anyone who is looking to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the countryside. If I could give the experience more than 5 stars, I would!

 2022 Well worth the drive up from Clark Summit. We were greeted like friends the minute we walked in. So authentic with winery vines outside, roosters, and bike decor. Dinner on a deck next to wetlands while hummingbird visit. Loved the wines and the food was outstanding. Don't miss this unique experience and taste exploration. Thank you to all who made tonight special at the restaurant 

Kim H

 2022 First and foremost, excellent vegetarian/vegan food. Low key environment. Had a 3 course menu, starting with a raw peach soup with cucumber and pistachio, and everything was delicious. 

C. Stoll

 Love this place. Appearances are deceiving - it doesn't have a fancy building or parking lot, I'd say it's pretty rustic, but it has great wine, mead and kambucha that is estate made in small batches along with husband-approved bourbon selections from the Poconos. We were there last night for a 9 course vegan/vegetarian feast with a wine pairing. This dinner left me saying "that was vegan?" because you didn't think that while eating, it was just damn good food. My favorites? The Gewurztraminer and the Bordeaux. The Aged Mead is very unique and was enjoyed as well. The owners exude personality and, unlike a lot of places, are truly happy to see you and give you an amazing experience. And....we met some really fun people and have new friends now. Try this place. You won't regret it. 

Tari T

 This is an experience one must not miss. The creativity in both the food and wine is outstanding. The beautiful plating that one only gets at a 5 star restaurant is picture perfect. And the flavors of both the food and wine are an experience which take your palate to another level. Outstanding!

Support Our Project! image
I’m reporting back over a dozen years working for ourselves: It’s not easy running a small business. We have goals driven by a heightened ambition. Shoot for the stars. Become who you are. We are devoted to building a sustainable business that will have a positive impact on the environment and to stand as an example of how a small business can be successful while breaking the guiding principles of profit and expansion.  To run our business we have had to scale down the number of tables we serve daily in order to serve the highest quality dishes. Everything is scratch made, whole ingredients, and organic as much as is available and growable. We have our own gardens and focus on heirloom vegetables and dude our hands and not machines, which keeps us closest to the earth. Our goal is to create a sustainable restaurant that employs solar. The other leg of this project is to hire two full-time people and to open a second location within two years. Please visit our Patreon page for a video that goes in further detail about our project and the levels you can participate in as a Patreon member. Become part of the Luna project by investing in us.   It’s about possibility. Thank you so much for considering Luna as your dining destination.  search Luna Wine & Table
Because Luna serves fresh whole foods and the dishes are made from scratch it is not possible to publish a "set menu." It depends what's available in our garden and from our local suppliers. You are always welcome to call to ask about the menu at 570-967-2185.

Please note that Luna does not serve carb-heavy or "family style" dinner nor does it serve meat. Our dishes are plant-based fine dining style with an emphasis on healthy, sustainably grown. Yes, we care about the food you put in your body. We eat the food we serve.

The LUNA project is about taking familiar ingredients and transforming them into something brand new. We suggest taking a look at customer photos on Yelp, Google and Facebook. Luna is food poetry and you will love all of it.

We’re a winery but we’re also a meadery! We love bees that are treated right and we make delicious mead with raw honey from the Finger Lakes. Small batch allows us to best lead the finished flavor profiles. And we age and occasionally ferment our mead on occasion in small oak barrels.  Blueberry, black currant, peach, pear, apple, chasers, melomels. We love to experiment and only put out the best of the best.  It’s funny when people try our mead and comment that it tastes so much better than they ever had. Answer. Most mead and especially commercial mead is bottled young. Aging is needed for the flavors to deepen and mature and eventually turn into something brand new. Our meads pair great with food and meant to be part of a special occasion. And yes, you may drink it all by yourself too!

We sell by the bottle only, $25-$100. Keep your eye out for our new website store where you can order ahead and arrange a curbside pickup! 
A sense of place and food. At Luna Wine & Table you taste both.  First the restaurant is not on the Main Street. And second, it a cloistered setting that has the immediate feel of underground dining, except in LUNA’S case it is actually licensed!  The owners recognize it's a different kind of place and location and best to let the Luna experience speak for itself.  Luna' is stuffed away in a small valley populated by pine trees, a running stream, and a small pond visible off Luna's back patio.  The habitat is home to native species, from birds to spring peepers, wood ducks to even a great Blue Heron who swoops in on a whim. Luna's small flock of chickens roost in trees and free range wherever they like---no fences hold them in. There's a small vineyard in the process of being expanded with a two-year goal of five total acres of vines.  The vegetable gardens are grown with organic practices and the owners are dedicated to making compost, which add to producing vegetables bursting with flavor.  Sustainable agriculture drives all. 
The Luna Experience imageThe Luna Experience image
  • LUNA Wine & Table is a licensed winery that makes red and white wine, aged mead, hard cider, perry, craft wine cocktail with PA distilled spirits (not made by Luna!) Grapes are grown on premises and procured locally---processed and fermented at Luna in small batches and stored in our wine cellar to age.  And with every day that passes Luna wines move closer toward their peak flavors.
Luna wines are a contrast to commercial wines. If commercial wineries were required to disclose on their bottle label the added ingredients and the intensive processing (micro-filtration, osmosis etc etc) their wine undergoes, a lot of people would very likely stop drinking it.  

Natural wines are in a separate category of winemaking simply because the finished product does not depend on chemicals, additives and industrial processes that allow it to taste exactly the same year after year. To keep this short and get to the point: our ancestors made natural wine.

Natural wine reflects the best of the soil and the climate the grapes were grown in, the yeast used to make it into wine, and the care of the grapes by the winemaker from start to finish. LUNA Wine & Table embraces experimentation, creativity, and sustainable practices.

A natural wine made with care and patience does not need seafood-based chemicals to make filter it.  A wine can clear just as nicely with some aging. And that's how we do it at Luna.

We are proud to offer mead made with regional real honey (NY & PA) There is nothing that comes close to the flavor of a good aged mead. Our Amber Mead and Burnt Honey aged 5 years are top shelf.

Ultimately LUNA is a Garden Restaurant.  Everything that grows in a garden are the building blocks of our menu. Please read on.

How do you take an every day vegetable and make it taste completely brand new to the point that it's something being tasted for the first time? That is the chef's project at Luna Wine & Table. In this sense Luna is vegan and post-vegan.
We've created an additional category of culinary to add dimension to what we are. The way a botanist studies plants, a culinary botanist looks at plants to better understand them and their world, which is our world. From the health of the soil they grow in to the location (terroir) of the gardens in which they grow, to how the gardener herself aids the plants to maturity with the intended benefit to their ecosystems. This approach to culinary precedes the role of the chef in the kitchen and is a wonderful ancillary to being a responsible Garden Restaurant. And for us, we love it. It's part of our sustainable lifestyle.

Our food is scratch-made, which completes this botany restaurant's circle ensuring the healthiest return from what we eat. From the bread to the wine reductions to the plant based cheeses, pastas, marinades, kimchi, and so on. Culinary botany simply does it better.

No Animals On Premises image
We love dogs. We love all animals and living things. Unfortunately, Luna is a winery but it' is also a small farm with free range chickens.  To avoid issues, dogs and other animals are not permitted on the premises.

The Farm @ LUNA

The winery resides on 10 acres that is woodsy. There are small veggie gardens that contribute to the restaurant menu and a growing small vineyard. The goal is to produce all of our wine in house from vine to glass. Recently we put in an acre of vines to add to the starter vineyard of red grapes planted over a decade ago that gift in abundance today. More planting is in the works. Sustainable is the only way here.

What should I look out for when I turn onto Valley View Road, the street Luna is on?

Luna is only .6 mile from Silver Creek Road and will be on your left.You will see THE LUNA sign near the road. Driving on Laurel Lake Road, turn onto Valley View Road and go 2 miles and look for the sign.

What makes your place different from the next vegan-vegetarian eatery?

Well, there are many restaurants with heart and soul doing vegan and vegetarian. Here, everything is scratch-made. From marinades to bread, from cheese to tempeh to pasta, we do it all. We mill grains manually, churn butter, produce dairy and vegan cheese and more. And we think the finished product makes all the difference.

Are you BYOB?

No.  We are a fully licensed winery serving a variety of red/white wines, aged mead, sparkling fruit wines, hard cider and perry.  It is our insurance and people's lives. Better safe than sorry. There is plenty to delight the senses here. Please support the best in local. 

Can I walk in at Luna without a reservation?

 Yes of course. There is plenty of room if you'd like to sit and taste our wine, mead or hard kombucha samplers or have a pour of one of our many wines. Depending on how busy we are, there may be a chance of getting food or minimum light fare. You may have to wait. It just depends.

What if I call to make a reservation on the same day I want to come to eat?

Yes. But if you make your reservation at least a day in advance you guarantee a table for yourself.  You are welcome to call the day you want to come in and we'll try our best to get you a table. It just depends on our schedule for that day.  If we have no reservations on any given day we are scheduled to be open, we will stay closed. We open and close according to our reservation schedule. We suggest calling ahead if you're a walk in, 570-967-2185 to make sure.
Children...Well Behaved image
Well behaved children are always welcome.  Luna does not offer a children's menu. Many children who have visited have enjoyed the food on the main menu.
