Food was decent, albeit salty
Honestly, I forgot what I ordered.
But they did bring me the wrong meal
Only realized it when I was halfway done.
Hey the other meal was ok.

I was standing at the front desk in front of 5 hostesses with my IDs and Covid screening at hand and they all had their heads down and ignored. They very well knew I was there, many looked up and as soon as I made eye contact looked right back down and ignored. They then would whisper to each other asking if other had taken care of me, then shrug off their shoulders and continue to look down. It was like they only knew how to look down because looking up would mean they would have to address me. I was the only guest waiting there by the way.

No idea what happened or why it happened. I’ve been there many times before. All I did was walk through the door and wait.

I had to finally stare a hostess down for her to acknowledge me. To which she proceeded to ask “oh has anyone helped you” pretending like she didn’t know I was standing there. I promptly told all of them that they ignored me and left me standing there.

This experience was very belittling. Why is moxies paying 5 hostesses to stand at the entrance to do absolutely nothing?

The covered patio is such a nice place to dine. I enjoyed the Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps and a glass of wine for my lunch. A little pricey for an 'appetizer', but since it was my main meal, I was fine with that. Excellent service.

four people lunch
nachos appetizer = messy table;
lunch was served on messy table, not even attempt to clean, but cleaned when we asked;
after bringing the order to 3 people only, they told us the forth order is not available and kitchen didn't tell them;
Some lady came to apologize - not introduction, no tag;
just apology and question, what it can be replace with and promise we will have it within 10 minutes;
ladies refused to wait and split one portion (BTW no offer to bring extra plate)

Loved the ambiance of the enclosed (outdoor) patio area. Fire pits, plants, very cozy. Sat at a booth which I had requested and it was available! Server was very friendly and accommodating…wasn’t rushed out of there at all. Overall had a great experience and had never been to this location before.

Sorry to say but was disappointed with the meal and service. Chicke was cold on my salad and the dressing was terribly watery for Caesar salad.
The server was not attentive to us.
Not a good option for me for my next business meeting.

We had a nice girls day out, service had much to be desired… had several different servers as the one that we originally had was no where to be found. Food took a very very long time to come out for us, and guests seated after us received their food. I think we were forgotten.
A lady brought us the bill and she held onto it and didn’t give it too us, so tbh I don’t know if they applied the 25% off apps from 3-5pm, I found that a little weird. She hovered over me as I paid as well, I’m assuming I didn’t fit the “description” of equitable for her. Left with a sour taste in my mouth- probably will not return due to the lack of attention and the awkward vibe I got from the women taking my payment.

Went there for a dinner with a friend. Service was amazing and food was great. Even though it was raining outside, our sitting was perfect and comfortable. Loved the pit fire they set up outside and was cozy and beautiful.

Please bring back the brunch or make is clear on your website that it’s no longer available. That was very disappointing.

My friend and I hadn’t seen each over for over a year due to the pandemic. We finally could get together and chose Moxies, so glad we did. The food was delicious and our server was excellent. The young lady was professional and patient as we did take our time to make our selections and she offered advice on the menu which was a great help also with choosing our drinks. We will certainly recommend Moxies in Pickering to our friends and family. Well done!

Food
I have been a steady customer for several years. My ‘go to’ dish is the cashew/chicken lettuce wraps. Two of us ordered it. We each had one cashew and the mixture was thick and heavily sauced. The lettuce was big flat leaves with little substance so it was very difficult to make a decent roll. Up to now I’ve never had anything but small, crisp lettuce that could hold a scoop of the mixture. Good service.
Reception
I was with my teen grandkids and when we checked in, we had to complete our ‘identification’ on our cell phones. There was quite a bottleneck created and a long line up. I wasn’t prepared for this and it was awkward trying to complete and also caused way too much closeness, certainly not the required 2 meters! I’ve been to several restaurants in both Pickering and downtown Toronto. I haven’t experienced anything like this at anywhere else.
Thanks for the opportunity to share.
