We were impressed with the prompt response to our complaint that the music was so loud we could not hear each other- the manager spoke to us directly to rectify the situation and see if the sound level was better and it was! Definitely would recommend this restaurant!

We were surprised the restaurant wasn't busier on a Sunday because it is so perfect for brunch or lunch. The staff were terrific and the menu had a great selection for brunch and lunch. One of us had the French toast. It was huge with lots of berries and sauce and whipped cream. Two had the beef dip sandwich on pretzel bread- fantastic. Both took 1/2 home. This was our first Moxie’s but we will trying the one at home.

Good recommendations from the server. Main courses were quite tasty. However, I was sadly disappointed in the white chocolate brownie. It is one of my favourite items here. A few bites into it and something tasted off. I'm not sure if it was undercooked but it did not sit well with my stomach. It seemed more soft and chewy than usual. Thankfully the manager came by to ask which dessert my date and I would like instead.

We have been to this Moxie's location a couple of years ago thinking we liked it enough to go back to meet up with friends.

On this visit it started out well although a bit rushed by the server to order mains when we hadn't
even receivedd our drinks. He was very attentive and explained process when hearing that my wife had an allergy to mushrooms. The main course 3 plates were delivered by someone else and they missed my wife's plate entirely ( she thought we were sharing).. After waiting another 5 minutes our server brought out the fourth plate. In another 3 or 4 minutes he came back with a 5th plate saying he delivered the wrong one to my wife. This was ok however we wondered how much attention was really paid to the Allergy issue when you bring the wrong plate (similar pasta) to the customer with an allergy issue.
The over all food quality was average and better could be had at restaurants with lower prices.
This was a disappointment compared to our experience approx 2 years previous.

Since the Kingston ON Moxie closed we have not visited a Moxie's until recent visit. We chose this Moxie's because it was in close proximity to our hotel. When we visit TO next time we will be booking a hotel in proximity to Moxie's.
Everything about our experience was great but the service was Amazing. Our server was Oswald who we later learned was a new employee. Oswald was friendly, knowledgeable of the drinks and food menu, courteous and checked back on our table frequently.
The shift manager( sorry cannot recall his name) came by to check on how our visit was going. We gladly reported on the great service we were receiving. We noticed that the manager gave a report of our compliment to Oswald right away. My husband and I are retired managers and we know how important it is to compliment staff promptly.
Once again we had a great experience at Moxie's

We had a nice location for the meeting and the table was ready upon my arrival.
The reason for my reduced star rating was that the volume of the music on the heated patio was so loud we had to have it turned down to be able to hear each other.
Otherwise Moxie's was and remains a location I would highly recommend

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!

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.

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.

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!
