Patio didn’t have the best shade, but still alright for lunch. Try their white chocolate brownie though!

The service was top notch at this Moxie's location. In addition, Covid protocols were adhered to and it made for a comfortable dining experience.
Our meals were delicious and we will be going back to enjoy the covered patio again.

While I love the vibe at night and the music, I find that it gets super loud to the point where you can’t even have a conversation without yelling and your throat hurting. It’s even harder now because of COVID so you try not to get too close when talking. I’ve noticed this indoors in the past and now even outdoors. The music volume can be lowered down a bit.

The food was ok but the cocktails were disappointing. I was really looking forward to some margaritas because I had them at the Moxie’s in Thornhill (East Beaver Creek) and they were really good. The ones at this location were okay but not as good. We had a great waitress - she was awesome. Food was okay - but I was really looking forward to the cocktails.

One Corona, Main: Sirloin Steak with rice and a few slices of beets and zucchini.
One Caesar, Main: Sirloin Steak with sweet potato fries and a few slices of beets and zucchini.

100.00 tip included. 😳

And this was a lunch outside. Seemed expensive. If not for a 50.00 gift card. I would not have a lunch but there again. Can’t imagine a dinner menu.

We did enjoy the meal though.

Great experience for our first trip out to eat at a restaurant patio since Covid. Staff were exceptional and all Covid protocols were adhered to so felt very safe. Would like to see more variety on the menu and especially in the area of salads but the food we did order was very tasty and well presented!

Awesome service and a great patio. I would have given a higher rating but most of my favourite dishes are no longer on the menu and the appetizer options weren’t great. Other than that the place was awesome.

This experience was lacking on a few levels. 1. It took well over 10-15min just to get a waiter to take our drink order. 2. The quality of the food was hit and miss. My meal was good but a bit over seasoned. Another meal was good,but the last meal was terrible. The steak and prawns had no flavor and it was extra chewy which makes me think the meat wasn't good to begin with yet was served. We ordered the white chocolate brownie but it wasn't a brownie at all. More like a pound cake with white chocolate in it.
3. The prices don't fit with what was served and how the service experience was for us.
4. The patio wasn't covered, so we were roasting in the sun. As this was my first time coming to this establishment, I'm hesitant to come back.

Moxie's is open for patio dining only, it was nice to be out on a patio but I feel the staff need to step up their game to be a little friendlier.

It was about 35C and we were put in direct sunlight. When asked to be moved, we were moved to an umbrella shaded table. From then on, everything was terrific...loved my peach bellini and my husband loved his Euro beer (on happy hour menu). Steak dinners were perfectly seasoned and grilled...delicious! Will be back soon :)
