About
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 longstanding love affair with food and wine so opening a winery and restaurant was inevitable. They also love gardening, composting, food preservation and off-grid living.  Armed with a bounty of freshly grown heirloom vegetables, they took to the kitchen and experimented.  Chef Doreen comes with a long history of cooking that dates to days in her grandmother's kitchen in Hackensack, NJ who herself was a locally beloved chef.  Another seed John &  Doreen carried from the suburbs and planted in the country was the joy of making fermented foods. Live culture kombucha and sauerkraut, led to kimchi, yogurts, cheese, sour cream, water kefir, tempeh, tofu miso, and so on.

Luna resides in an old ranch farmhouse located on a woodsy ten-acre parcel with open land for gardens, grape vines, and happy free-ranging chickens who roost in trees. We desired to leave the house's original charm, which adds to the magic. The valley of Valley View Road has a spectacular view below of the creek with no name.

First intention is quality over quantity. Small batch. Native vegetables and fruits. You are going to love it.

Luna is casual fine dining. Price for entrees range from $18 to $36 and specialty grazing boards $25-45 that serves two. The food is sustainably grown, scratch made and plant-based. Delicious Luna-grown vegetables and mushrooms stand on their own prepared with love and creativity. And we do source veggies and mushrooms locally as needed. You are going to love the destination.

The Luna Experience
To have the experience that you don't feel like you're sitting at just another table at some anywhere restaurant.  The food plates are all original and mostly vegetable-based.  The vegetables, flowers, and grapes are grown on premises and the grapes for wine making were grown in the Finger Lakes and turned into wine at Luna. Luna has their own gardens and they locally source from surrounding farms.  The emphasis is in bringing together the finest ingredients onto the plate and into the glass. Everything is made fresh and in small batches.  This form of quality ensures that the Luna vision of providing a like-no-other dining experience is achieved. To get the full Luna Experience, we recommend 2-3 plates per person and a sampling of our wines. 
  • LUNA wine encompasses red and white wine, aged mead, hard cider, craft cocktails, spirit samplers using PA Distilled Spirits.. ALL grapes grown on premises and regionally, processed and fermented at Luna in small batches.  Come see through our viewing glass into our (pretty dark!)temperature-controlled small batch (cave) room where wines age. And with every day that passes the wine grows more and more complex, more  mysterious, and more desirous.  We do not use flavor extracts or blending and disguising agents (i.e. MegaPurple) that are routinely used with third rate grape juices, or clearing agents such as crustacean shell finings. Do you know what that translates to? Our wines are vegan friendly.  A good wine made with care and patience doesn't need seafood based chemicals; it just needs care and patience.  New Releases for 2022 include Cranberry Wine made with NJ organic cranberries; Sauvignon Blanc; Cabernet Franc Oaked; Beet Wine and possibly Port Wine (It's aging nicely). 

  • Craft cocktails are also available.  We use PA Distilled Spirits from two distilleries we think make the best of the best. . 

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. We have at least seven meads available and you will be able to taste most of them with our available tasting sampler. Our Amber Mead and Burnt Honey aged 4 years are top shelf. There are a couple new aged meads that will likely be ready for release Spring 2022.





Luna FoodLuna FoodLuna Food
Our food is scratch-made.  From the bread to the vinegar-wine reductions, the cheese, the yogurt, pasta, marinades, sauce, even the herbal salts. It's always a challenge but we love the end product. The kitchen offers simply complex dishes consisting of plant-based whole food. There is no reason why a vegetable dish can't be delicious AND hearty, the vegetable simple yet succulent. The menu is vegan & vegetarian. The thing is, our ancestors who ate all-vegetable dishes on a given day didn't call it vegan or vegetarian. It was dinner.  Here at Luna, the labels fade and real flavors emerge. Some of the food is grown on site using sustainable organic practices and the rest is sourced locally from farmers markets.  Our friends take great care in growing vegetables and are as fascinated as we are by the microbes in the soil and the practices taken to make those microbes happy. Composting is a way of life! Especially in the kitchen.

We highly encourage people who come to eat at Luna to share plates with the rest of the table. The staff on our best day consists of four people. Plates are made fresh and not held under heat lamps or warmers. When they're ready they come out, they come out 1-2 at a time, sometimes three, depending. Sharing plates will allow you to experience more of the menu. It is not uncommon for a table of 3-4 to order every dish on the menu. Today there were eight items to choose from. Sharing plates are provided. Sharing becomes a communal experience and by the time you've finished your food you will feel restored in every way and some. Of course, you are welcome to order your own plates and enjoy it all the same.


No Animals On Premises
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 ten acres. We grow vegetables and serve them in the restaurant. Peach trees, walnut and pear trees, currants, raspberries, asparagus, and rhubarb dot the land and the fruits are also integrated into the menu.. A starter vineyard of red grapes was planted 6 years ago and gift in abundance. More planting is in the works.

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 our OPEN sign near the road and sign in the backdrop. Here's the thing. The Luna sign is not visible when coming the other way on the Laurel Lake Road side. When driving on Laurel Lake Road, turn onto Valley View Road and go 2 miles and you will see the OPEN sign on the right. You will not see our Luna Sign as it only faces the other way. That's as good as it gets in a NEPA Valley! See you here!

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 cheese. 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. We also do not want to assume the risk with drinkers in essence serving themselves and as an establishment having no handle on the monitoring aspect.  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?

(THIS ANSWER DOES NOT APPLY UNTIL LATE SPRING 2022. Fall/Winter 2021/2022 we have moved to a Prie Fixe Menu. See our reservation schedule for details.)  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 made on location. Depending on how busy we are, there may be a chance of getting lightfare food if you like. It just depends.

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

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE DOING A PRIE FIXE MENU WITH SET SEATING TIMES AND ARE NOT OPEN OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED HOURS UNTIL LATE SPRING 2022.  ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL US.  ///  If you want to make a reservation for 6pm on Friday and call at 9am that Friday, you will not receive the full food menu. We need at least 24 hour advance for it to be a reservation. This helps us limit food waste and valuable time.  And it guarantees you the best possible food experience on the planet! Well, let's just say you won't be disappointed. 

WHAT A FABULOUS DAY! The sun was shining and that is always a fabulous day in the NEPA Valley! Our four-course delighted the senses. We are so fortunate to be attracting people with a true appreciation for wholesome vegan-vegetarian food and wine. There were enough vegans signed up for this event that we served a full 100% vegan four course! We served one of our Bordeaux-like Reds and for white we went with Gewurztraminer and Seyval Blanc. And we even uncorked a four-year aged mead! All wines come from grapes grown in the Finger Lakes and are delicious.  If you attended this event or you appreciate what we're doing at Luna Wine & Table, we assure you there is much more to come!

Any great poet will tell you that country life and sunshine go together. It's summer in Northeastern PA and it is a truly lovely time of year. Luna Wine & Table sits on ten acres of open and wooded land. Seating on the backside of the restaurant is sublime being literally surrounded by unadulterated green growth of nature. Maple, elderberry bushes, wild grape vines meandering along the wooded structures. We haven't had a single person opt to sit indoors once shown outside seating. Sublime I tell you.  There's a gazebo with the best view in the house, not to mention it sits in the pathway of resident hummingbirds. Of course, if you prefer indoor seating, we got you covered. Make your table reservation now, you will not be disappointed.

We are the lucky ones. The pandemic knocked out numerous restaurants large and small. Here we are in June and it's still taking a toll. But, there's a sense that things are getting better. Luna is back and we are grateful. We are open four days. We suggest making a table reservation but walk ins are always welcome. Time to celebrate. To a new beginning. Cheers!
