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 backKozen A.
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!Carl L.
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.Bill K.
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!Randi
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.

Santa Cruz, CA 211138 9/12/2022 4 photos This is the most impeccable and unique dining experience that I've ever had the pleasure to be a part of. Everyone around you is feeling the amazing vibes mixed with the incredible boutique food and wine. It makes for an all around happy place! 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!Bryon R.
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 restaurantKim 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!Vicki H.
