Critical Reception[]

Allmusic's Thom Jurek wrote that Simon "delivers these 12 songs with panache, savvy, and just a touch of sass."

Entertainment Weekly gave the album a "B-", writing: "Compared with the general loveliness of Torch, Carly Simon’s 1981 set of standards, this generic collection, Moonlight Serenade, a reunion with ”You’re So Vain” producer Richard Perry, disappoints. With the rubber-chicken supper-club stylings of the title track, a drowsily synthesized ”I Only Have Eyes for You,” and a clumsy speed-up of Harry James’ ”The More I See You,” it’s up to Simon’s voice — with its shadings of Rosemary Clooney — to rescue the proceedings from disaster. It comes close."
