The wait staff was lovely, the food was great. Sadly the place is really loud. I couldn’t hear the person sitting across from me.

Can probably add a few halal options as the demographic of the area is vastly multicultural and from all beliefs.

Enjoyed sitting on the patio which was busy but comfortable. Received great service from Sophia. Food was tasty and brought to the table promptly. Half-priced bottle of wine was a bonus!

Gus is great, amazing service. Sunlight from the front foyer was brutal - close the hole behind your reception area, very impractical.

Overall good experience!

Lovely service, friendly staff and great food. Moxie’s Square One has our table ready early and the dishes were served quickly (even though we each ordered completely different meals) made for a memorable early Mother’s Day lunch. Our server was patient and knowledgeable about each dish which were all delicious.

A great lunch. I love a tasty spin on everyday items - the chicken tacos were perfect for my Sunday of “grazing”, but others might have been left hungry for a full lunch.
We pre-booked, requesting a quiet table (so mom could be a part of the family get together)... but it seemed that all 4 tables in use at the sitting were immediately adjacent. A little too much excitement and screaming at next table.

Always enjoy meals at Moxie's. Great menu selection that offers choice to anyone who follows any special dietary requirements. Service was amazing and the atmosphere is welcoming and cozy. Wherever I sit, I always feel like we are the only ones in the restaurant.

Yes but only to those of my friends that don't mind paying higher prices for restaurant food. There is not much value for the amount of food you get versus the prices charged. We ordered 1 appetizer 2 mains for myself and my wife and i main for my twin 4 year olds to share. That cost $98! Tip not even included yet!

Hello RealFoodie, We are disappointed to hear that we could not meet your expectations regarding price vs value. We do take great pride in offering premium ingredients that are locally sourced. However your feedback is much appreciated, without it we would be unable to improve for our future guest. Nick Campanaro

Good food and good atmosphere. Service has been much better in the past. Our waitress didn't seem to be interested in customer service. She wasn't very friendly and didn't check in on us at all to see if we needed anything during the meal and we had to wait a long time for her to come back to the table when we were ready for the bill. Still like the restaurant and would definitely go back, but would hope for a different server.

Although it was Valentine’s Day and the endless amounts of reservations was overwhelming, the speed of service was not up to par. Destiny, our server, was great! She was attentive and kind. However our food took about an hour or so to come. A couple had been seated beside us 20 mins after we were sat and had their food before us and even left before we ate. Because of this, we missed our bus and had to wait another hour. Slightly disappointing that knowing it’s a busy day, the restaurant seemed to be understaffed.

I came here for my birthday and have been here before but found that the food was better last time. We ordered the nachos (meant for 4, but eaten by 3) and there was so much leftover! Great portions! I also ordered the fried chicken sandwich but was surprised when I received it unlike now I asked. The manager came and fixed it immediately for me while also offering me soup. My mother ordered a burger and it was burnt and they also attended to her needs efficiently. Overall great customer service. The food is quite pricy for mediocre food to be honest. I mentioned I was here for a birthday in the reservations but they didn’t notice until we told them again. The waitress then came and offered me a free dessert which was delicious. We received the burger for free which was very kind of the crew! Thank you once again to all the staff for all your help!

We enjoyed out meal very much. Ithe was the first time we have dined at your establishmentime but I believe it will probably not be the last.
The quality of the meat (we had the ribs and also the steak) was first-rate. We did not have desssert because the main course and the starters were plenty.

Considering how busy it was the service was very fast and efficient it’s always so nice to see managers step up and aren’t afraid to do the waitressing aspect as well.

Really like they had the half sandwich option especially after all that Xmas eating.

Very impressed with service, my husband had to send his steal sandwich back as it was a bit tough,
The manager came over and went out of his way to make sure all was well, the steak sadly could not be improved upon, but this isnt the manager's fault it lies with the cut that management choose to serve with this menu item. Our waiter was very attentive and unlike many restaurants really listened, we are seniors
And seldom complain, but if telling the truth about the meal helps the restaurant improve the cut, why not. They listened many just see seniors as a pain the you know where.

Some of the food was very good. The only thing that was just ok were the steaks. Maybe it is just not a steak place. And they charge prices the same as a steakhouse. Otherwise, service was great.

I had booked a time to have lunch @ Moxie's Bar & Grill at Your Square One location. Having had lunch there last year on December the 6th and earlier this year, I was really looking forward to it. They did not disappoint me. The Service from the time I got to the Restaurant, to the time I got my Meal was to notch.
The service I received was very timely, friendly and the overall atmosphere was great.

Thank you for a great experience. I will be doing this at the same location next year.

I enjoyed the lettuce-bun burger which was tasty and cooked perfectly. Hubby ordered the Spanish cod/shrimp main which was delicious but he was disappointed that the menu did not stipulate that it contained potatoes, of which there were many. Jordan was a great server, very friendly and engaging. Dessert menu was brought while I was still eating my dinner--would have preferred it to come after finishing my meal (a very small issue in what was an enjoyable experience).
