We were on business matters. Everything was very good. The only thing it could be improved is our table wobbled a little bit.

Mothers Day, 2019:
We were shown right to our table, and our waitress showed up right after.

Coffee order taken, delivered a few minutes later, food order taken and delivered well under 10 minutes.

The food was very flavourful, and the amount was satisfying.

We were told that the mother’s in our group could take a potted plant with them. With the plant was a 1/2 off wine coupon valid for the next 30 days.

All and all a very pleasent experience!

We booked a table on open table for 7, then got a phone call to confirm but they had no room so we agreed to go into the lounge. When we got there they brought us in to the lounge and we had to put our own table together, no assistance from staff. The music was extremely loud so it was difficult to talk to each other. The food was pretty good, server was polite.

Usually I like Moxies and go there a lot. So I hope this case is an exception. We made reservations specifically to be there during their Brunch hours. When seated we asked for their Brunch Menu. "Oh, we cut off Brunch early". We got up and left, trying to get to another restaurant which was still serving Brunch. I it will be a while before I go back again.

We went here on Valentine’s day for dinner. Out server and the other staff were not sure about their special which is odd. My wife ordered the NY steak medium, it was served medium well almost well done. I ordered baby back ribs (they’re more like chewy ribs) not tender at all. Not a bad place though, not the best either.

We came to your restaurant to have a nice family outing with our kids and their friends. Food quality wasn’t the best, the salmon was very dry, the salads had very little if any dressing on them, and the ginger teriyaki bowl had mushrooms when we specified we do not like them. The service wasn’t good at all, we had to ask the sever several times to clear some of the glasses and dishes from the table due to the fact we didn’t have any space on the table. The server neglected to take any dishes away and when we asked she took “a glass” leaving the other four glasses on the table that were empty. Overall your location wasn’t the best choice for us apparently. We always dine at the south common location and thought we would try your location as a change. Very disappointed to be honest. We get such great service at south common and the food is always so fresh and tasty, we assumed we would get the same at another location. Very disappointed!

We were a large group so keep that in mind - almost 30 of us. Some issues from some in our group with portion size and value and a couple with comments on saltiness so ask first about salt content if that’s an issue for you. The staff were great and friendly and the service delivery was excellent for a large group. I’d recommended it - the ribs were top notch

We came here for family date-night. Our server was brilliant - there when we needed him, good with our 7 year old as well as the adults. The food was top-notch and the recommendations by our server were spot on. My daughter was talking about her cheese pizza two nights later!Highly recommend and we will be back for sure.

Had to reorder as they ran out of Ribs. Ordered a New York steak Medium rare. Sent me a sirloin not new York and cook medium well. Other person in the party had a Steak salad. little to no dressing at all on the salad as well only 1 tomato and that's it. just lettuce. Service was very slow as well.

This was our first time at Moxies. We were having a family supper, there were 9 of us. We booked through OpenTable and the evening was fabulous! Our server was very friendly and the food was excellent for the price point. We will definitely be going to Moxies again soon!

Although we made a reservation for 7:00, we were seated until 7:20. The manager was kind enough to offer dessert due to our wait; however, we had to wait another 15 to 20 minutes for the dessert to arrive which made for an extremely late evening.

The reservation I made on line wasn’t recognized by the greeter when we arrived. She asked how long before I made the booking and I told her over a week ago. I received confirmation of the booking by email and again the day before.., therefore appears the online system and the one at the restaurant aren’t in sink... fortunately for us there wasn’t a problem getting in....

Restaurant is good but when I arrived they did not have my reservation made through Open Table. They managed to fit us in but very dissapointed that the reservation system is so unreliable!!
