I was a little bit early for my reservation time of 5:00 pm. I was seated promptly and served quickly. I was pretty impressed when my server (who was the same one as last week) remembered my whole order from last week! I had the rigatoni with a rose sangria and both were amazing. The rigatoni had plenty of sauce and a nice slice of cheese on top. The restaurant was very quiet as most people were out on the patio enjoying the weather. I was finished my meal in record time and out the door by 5:30.

I was late for my reservation and had to wait a bit when I got there. I was then seated in a section all by myself. Good for social distancing! I ordered the rigatoni, one of my favourites, as well as a Sangria. I was surprised to see how big the sangria was. I thoroughly enjoyed the rigatoni (and the sangria!) and was merrily on my way quite quickly.

The new menu has no taste. I have been visiting Moxie since 2018 and the food quality is going down hill. The staff is above average and very pleasant. The decor is dated and is the same since 2018 a refresh would be nice to see. We understand it is Covid time.
This restaurant could use a bit of a fresh up and menu revival

Update:
Moxies was proactive about reaching out to get more details and investigate what happened. They apologized and said it should have been handled differently. Refreshing that they took ownership and apologized so I have changed the overall review rating to reflect that.

Original review:
Had an 845pm reservation. Showed up on time. Table was not ready which happens. But there was another table for another reservation that had not showed up yet. They were 30min late at that point. Instead of giving us the table and having them wait when they showed they called the missing group to remind them. They then showed up 15 min later and gave them their table when they were 45min late. We were still waiting. After another 15min, 30min past reservation time, we left and went next door to Big Rig.

Everything was great! Only comment would be that the hostess wasn’t wearing her mask properly, it didn’t cover her nose and she kept touching her face. Other than that everything was fine.

We arrived for our date nite at 6.50 pm and were on our way out the door at 8pm. I felt that we were being rushed through our appetizers and meal to accommodate other clients. The restaurant was not overly busy at this time of night so I feel we should have been allowed more time to enjoy our evening out.

Service was excellent. We were quickly seated for our reservation showing up about 10 minutes early. Music is a bit loud but time of day on a Friday night it's expected I guess. But we were still able to have a good convo over our meal. Waitress was excellent. Quick to serve and super cheerful (not overly weird cheerful.... Just right cheerful) moxie's is becoming one of my go to spots in east end Ottawa.

If you like an over-attentive waiter this is the place to go. The first seat we were given was way too noisy, moved down to the lower level where it was a bit quieter. The waiter came over every few minutes, usually just after we had taken a bite of food....but it was a bit excessive for us.

Moxie's was quite a surprise. I thought it would be a carbon copy of other franchises. I was wrong. The interior is a combination of muted colours, excellent seating arrangements and options. Lighting and window blinds were very well selected.

Seating was immediate, servers were friendly, helpful and menu knowledgeable. Not overbearing. We were given all the time we needed to relax over pre meal drinks and appetizers.

The wine list was varied and competitively priced. The menu was also varied with reasonably priced apps and main courses. The steak frites and steak sandwich were
both exceptional.

All in all a fine dining experience.

Had a great lunch with my 2 boys, 2 and 4 yrs old!! The Southern chicken sandwich is out of this world. Always stellar service by Dan Joseph. My boys love Moxies, the attention they get from the whole team along with the 'smoking' ice cream. Looking forward to our next visit!!!
