This Moxies location is always disappointing. They no longer have enchiladas on the menu and also had run out of the turkey club. This was on a Wednesday at noon which I thought was poor. My fellow diner ordered the Salmon and Avocado Cobb salad which was basically an iceberg lettuce thrown on a plate with salmon on top. The lettuce was not cut nicely or even separated out. Very poor.

Visiting from the UK we arrived in time for their ‘early bird’ menu. We all had the steak, lovely flavour and presentation. Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable seating away for noisier bar area. Deserts were scrumptious, I had brownie, yum.
Only reason I gave 4 stars was my steak ordered rare was pretty much cold. They took it away to re heat but it still was cold. Maybe due to thickness of steak. Still tasty though and the accompaniments really lovely too.

Loving the newly renovated place. Took off some of my friend’s favourite menu items but we still had a great time and high quality food.

It was busy and very noisy -- almost impossible to carry on a conversation. The food was good, but the Beef Dip was very messy/sloppy and difficult to eat without feeling like you needed a bath afterward.

I had reserved for a group of 14 people that all had separate bills. They had reserved me in a great area where the whole group was together, and the server was very quick and organized. This helped our very large group leave within an hour and a half. Great service and everyone enjoyed their food!

Service was excellent; food arrived promptly and was very good

as the restaurant filled closer to lunch the noise level became a bit overwhelming -

I would go back but would target not the busy lunch hour

My boyfriend got hurt from a glass (ended up getting stitches) and the wait staff couldnt care less. Manager bandaged him up after having to ask. Nothing was comped, didnt even offer a replacement beer. Had to wait 20+ minites for the server to come around. Watched the manager talk to girls at the bar rather than help while i tried to get his attention. Never going back as I've never been treated like that.

The service from our server Jordan was exceptional. Friendly, professional, attentive.
The food was excellent and came out fast.
Ambiance was very nice. Liked being able to plug in my phone to charge it.
We arrived just before noon and when the lunch crowd came in it was a bit loud but not annoyingly so.
Open, modern, elegant ambiance.
Great menu selection with some interesting options.
Would highly recommend it and plan on going back myself!
Thank you Jordan for the absolutely fantastic service. You rock!

We ordered burger, pasta, pizza and curry! Pasta was the best and pizza was moderate. We didnt get the water until we ordered and service was just moderate to be honest. But other stuff was alright! We liked it :)

Never had a good meal here and the service is always very poor. They almost always get your order wrong or your food comes out freezing. Would not recommend

Thanks for the excellent service. One of our team members has severe allergies and was accommodated very graciously. Love, love, love the poke and seaweed chips. Please keep that on the menu.

The weather was great and we decided to eat on the patio which sits right next to the train tracks and platform. This made the atmosphere very noisy and difficult to hold a group conversation. The food was great and the service was very good. I recommend eating indoor.

Good food; nice staff always. Parking is expensive so if you can walk or take the train it’s better.

Excellent access (right next to the LRT Station). Very good food with selection. Quiet in the restaurant, ideal for business discussions, yet charismatic enough for a social meal. Great service with a smile and "care". Close to 2-3 parking lots. Would recommend it to anyone.Prices are very reasonable.

I was really disappointed with the service. The server never asked if we wanted more drinks and when we finally ordered them it took half an hour to get them, by this done we were long done our meals and were really just wanting to leave. We could never find the server when we needed her and our glasses were always empty. When we asked the server why it was taking so long she said they were really busy, but there were two other tables in the restaurant at the time, and multiple servers working. It was very confusing. I would not go back

Went by for lunch. They re did the entire main level dining and it looks great! They had their patio set up too and it felt like summer. Food and service was really good too. Had the Nashville Hot Chicken to start and was not disappointed. Looking forward to many more visits!

We had a great time and they were able to accommodate our large group. Our location in the “extra” room was quite smoky though.
