I was pleasantly surprised by my food choice. The sushi rolls were packed full of flavour and satisfying! Our server was friendly and attentive!

We were a party of 2 that were seating at a half booth table for 4. There was an open table of 2 beside us.
About 15-20 min into our meal a hostess came and asked to separate the table we assumed that they needed the table for 4 ppl however this was not the case. Another party of 2 came and sat down they were practically on top of us. Why weren’t these 2 ppl seated at the table for 2??? The rest of the meal just went downhill from tbere.

We wanted to get a quiet area (as we mentioned it in the reservation) but they gave us a table in the hallway that has lots of traffic. We asked to be seated in the corner or by the window as they were all empty. But we were told those are with reservations (??? We had reservations too...). So we complained and the manager came and switched for us.

After that it was a pleasant experience.

For a new bartender, I’d say he/she did an admirable job on our cocktails. The only thing wrong was the garnishes.

The steaks were a little overdone but still, not bad.

Service was pretty good. We had a hard time finding our server a time or two but she made up for it by being very pleasant and courteous.

Overall, a good experience.

My chicken was raw, sweet potato fries were cold, my glass was stained with lipstick and had not been cleaned properly and the veggies were not fresh either, the blue cheese tasted expired. It was just a total disappointment.

I go to many different locations so I can compare the quality and I would expect a minimum level of consistency. The seared ginger tuna salad was a sad salad today. Smallest tuna pieces I have ever seen, the salad looked and tasted old. I also had a gin and tonic which was completely flat. Could not have been more disappointed with the quality of food. Please improve.

my two friends and I have been lunching together for many years and we all work near the downtown core. None of us had tried Moxies before so we thought, why not? Service was great, the food amazing and it was relatively quick. When they found out we were celebrating a birthday, they gave us a complimentary dessert to share. We barely finished it! Moxies we will be back!

Moxie’s has always proven to be an amazing restaurant for me, especially due to the delicious desserts. I intend to go yet again next time given I find some excuse to go out and eat.

Moxies celebrated Mother’s Day with a special menu, a flowering plant for every Mom and some fun cards that Mom’s can lay down for family time and tech help.... lives it all and the food was great. Thanks for a very special Mother’s Day.

Great spot but the noise made conversation at the table difficult. Need some noise cancellation from roof down.

Otherwise, a great spot.

Great service. We were running late because of the TTC and they held our table for 45 minutes which was much appreciated since we were going to the Jays game after.

when arrived at the restaurant, i advised the waitress that i booked online and gave her my name, than she showed me a table that was for 2 people but advised that i book for 6 people . She advised me that they do not take reservation for the evening. Was a bit upset as i booked weeks in advance. we had to wait 15 minutes until table was ready.
The waiter who took care of us was great.

We went here for a business meeting and really apprecaited being able to hear one another. We were in a booth which helped, but in general the restaurant did not seem as noisy as some of the otehrs in the area. There was no loud and annoying background music that plagues some establishments.

I've been to Moxies quite a bit for thier half price wine nights. The food on our last visit was not good at all... We split a pizza and nachos and it all tasted cold and the cheese on the nachos was just one massive gross cold blob.

We found the ambience a bit too vibrant, aka noisy, although the table we had was not too badly situated for conversation. My friends (from Brampton) said the food we had was the best they had had at a Moxies, so thumbs up on the food front.
