Moxie's Grill & Bar - Dixon Road
Moxie’s Dixon Road is located in the Sandman Signature Hotel – minutes away from Toronto Pearson Airport and just up the road from Royal Woodbine Golf Club. Our Executive Chef Brandon Thordarson has created a menu offering a wide-array of steaks, burgers, pastas and seafood! No matter the occasion, whether it's a business luncheon, a dinner date, or late night drinks with friends, Moxie's offers something for everyone.
Moxie’s features daily drink specials and a relaxing patio. We offer a delectable blend of unique cocktails, flavourful wines and a variety of beers to choose from. Next time you’re in the neighbourhood, be sure to pop in!
Everything was wonderful and our server was fantastic. I hate to complain because our server was very very nice (and I doubt what happened was her fault), but on the booking for this lunch on OpenTable, I had specifically written that it was my friend’s birthday and I would like a flourless chocolate cake and gelato for dessert with a candle to surprise her. I was really disappointed when these items were never even brought out or mentioned at the end of our meal and we just got our checks. It was too late for me to surprise her at that point and so it kind of ruined my birthday lunch plan in that way. Other than that, the patio is really nice for summer time and they even have an enclosed patio that makes it feel like summer and protects you from the sun!
Typical moxie quality and service. The patio was open so that was a bonus.
Slow service, forgot to put in an order, returned the drinks they made
The service was amazing and our server (John I think is his name) was very attentive throughout our meal. He was also very knowledgeable about the menu. My biggest problem was the food itself. My fish tacos tasted terrible... The fish was watery tasting and bland and the cabbage/veggie slaw tasted old. It tasted so blah that I had it sent back. The calamari was good as an appetizer but it was a very small portion. They make it sound so plentiful on the menu but it comes out pretty small. The better appetizer is the chips and dip. The pasta was decent too. All in all, the food didn't live up to what it was promising. Joey's has a similar menu and price point and tastes ten times better. I would much rather recommend that restaurant over Moxie's.
Got seated down at the table and had to wait 30 mins for someone to come to me! That’s with me asking the hostess to get someone to come
To my table
great menu options; new inside/outside dinning area
First time at this Moxie's location. My brother and I took our dad here for Father's Day. We enjoyed every bite of the food.
If you have been to Moxie's you know what to expect decent food and value for your money.
Jackie was amazing! Great food and wonderful evening, thanks!
Im a fan of the Moxies chain but theis is a location I won't be returning to. I'm sure the fact that it was a busy Friday evening had something to do with it, but still, it didnt even come close to what i expect or have received in the past at other locations. My steak was over cooked, the vegetables were undercooked, the waiter offered us fresh ground pepper 3/4 of the way through the meal, and they walked by us several times with empty glasses and never once asked if we wanted refills. Staff was very nice and pleasant, but the lack of attentiveness paired with the food is enough to ensure I will travel farther to one of the other Moxies locations.
This place was truly amazing. The ambiance was great and the location was amazing. We sat in the lounge and I loved it. I felt so catered to and I appreciated where we sat. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was tasty as well. Would definitely go back to this location again.
Our server was wonderful! Very attentive and a great representation of your brand. We would come back for him, for sure.
One of the guests had the lettuce wraps as their meal. Was shocked at the small amount of chicken included considering they paid an additional $6 to have it included.
Business luncheon was absolutely perfect and the deal was closed, so happy!
great place, excellent food but being super busy the waitress forgot a lot - leafs first playoff game so very loud in the bar area - the lounge was a little less loud
A decent place to have lunch and bring guests in the airport area
Our waiter was great! Sorry I’ve forgotten his name.
No mention of our special occasion, food was horrible, we ordered the fish tacos, they had the tiniest bit of fish the size of a dime in the fish taco, with one super tiny sliver of avocado, I guess it was a garnish...literally the taco was stuffed completely with coleslaw... really, if I wanted a salad I would of ordered one! So not worth the money, guess the kitchen staff is to lazy to make it right!
Mixed reviews should be taken seriously. Although we were seated promptly with our reservation, we waited an hour and a half for our food. The server and manager were both apologetic and offered free drinks and soup or salad appetizers to compensate for the wait. When our mains finally arrived, they were mediocre at best. We appreciated the effort of the server and manager to make amends, but we would not recommend this location. Perhaps on a weeknight their service and food quality might be better, but we wouldn’t take that risk.
I waited almost 15 minutes for a server to even approach the table and say hello. Almost ready to walk out.
As I had ample time to read the menu and make a choice, I didn’t have to wait an unreasonably lengthy time for my food, which was tasty enough but not outstanding. I had barely taken a bite when the server miraculously reappeared to ask me how everything was.
Portions were not large, which was OK, perhaps the cost could be less.
Overall, poor experience. Little to no chance of returning.
Great Service. Food was also good. Background music was at a satisfactory level.
Reserving our table through Open Table was super easy. We met by very friendly and helpful people at the main desk, seated promptly and our waitress arrived quickly. She was most helpful and pleasant. Did not have to wait long for the food and it was delicious. A most enjoyable experience.
Great food, nice atmosphere, decor and layout.
I wish our server would have been more attentive, than just taking my date's and I order and bringing out our meals.
I ordered pasta, dish was great, but our server did not ask us if we wanted cheese or ground pepper. I had to ask for it. Typically at other Moxie's locations and similar restaurants, the server would ask or bring out cheese/ground pepper.
Limited service. Took for ever to receive basics like salt and pepper and anything incremental like wine
Can accommodate a peanut allergy. Service outstanding. Food delicious but some portions are small if you have a big appetite.
The food was great, I just wish the servers are a little more welcoming.
Great night. Staff where excellent. Food allergies were taken seriously And I was well advised. Overall a very good experience
We always have a fantastic experience at this location. Can't wait to go again!
Had a great date night before an early morning flight. Table was and food were great. Service from Taylor was fantastic. She made sure the timing of drinks and food was perfect and was super nice and attentive along the way.
It Was very good service. Had the fish tacos all the food was excellent.
Book through the open table app , received text that reservation had been confirmed. Walked 20 minutes from our hotel to the restaurant only to find out that it was closed for renovations. Not very happy!!!
We called the restaurant to make a reservation- no answer. We made a reservation online through Open Table, received a confirmation and arrived at Moxie’s only to find it CLOSED! Nothing posted, no details for customers and certainly no message on their voicemail! Serious lack of customer service!! We took our business elsewhere and will not go back to Moxie’s.
Great experience every time we eat here !!!! Its a great neighborhood gem !!
It was just ok

While the team were pleasant and friendly, and the food relatively good there was a real knowledge gap on: menu details and how to address dietary restrictions, how to ensure speed of service as well as dealing with a food safety and handling issue. So as a result not looking to return to this location or in fact other locations in the chain’s group.
Thank you BBNY for taking the time to review us. We didn’t deliver the experience you expected and we would like the opportunity to discuss your visit with us. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com. Thank you again, Moxie's management Team
Our server, Jon I believe, was so accommodating and extremely attentive -- best server we've had there!

Always consistent and that’s why we go there.
Been there many times over the years, Our latest visit for lunch with a friend. Very busy and noisy but the service was good and the steaks very good.
It was great with staff who knows!!
Great place to meet friends to catch up. Our server Julee was friendly and helpful, she was there when we needed her, she was attentive without hovering. Food was good, we had a great night out with friends.
