We arrived at 4:30 pm and the wine we ordered was sold out. At 5:00 pm we ordered a Calamari appetizer, but that was also sold out. The restaurant did not appear to be overly busy, yet the service was extremely slow. The food we did receive was very good, and the half price wine special is fabulous. I have recommended other Moxie's to friends, but this location did not meet up to our expectations.

Awesome food: I will never tire of the chicken Madeira rigatoni or the mosaic dip! Awesome drinks: that jalapeño drink is amazing!!! My only complaint is that the dessert menu is lacking. We never get dessert there. It would be nice to have dessert at Moxie’s that is as delicious as the food is.

Beyond my expectations!
I’ve met two managers during my visit just because of the food restrictions I’ve had. Managers served themselves just to make sure everything was done in compliance with their protocols and it was amazing to witness the level they go for exceptional customer service. Moxie’s will always be on my to-go list in the future. I couldn’t have been happier with my service provided. The food was very tasty and I appreciated that.
Good job to them and hope they keep it that way for a long time.

Our server Greg was amazing; very funny, very attentive. Moxies has a great gluten free menu for anyone who needs this - I do. My only complaint was that the music is very loud which did make it kind of difficult to talk, other than that it was great.

the amount of perfume and cologne used by servers makes it very uncomfortable for people with allergies. It was difficult not to heave. Way too much. We should be smelling the food and nothing else. Got the wrong order, with items I'm allergic to, that I specifically asked the server to tell the kitchen to leave out (they weren't left out and I only found out when I bit into them). Asked for an espresso afterwards and got dishwater or whatever it was... but it wasn't espresso. Asked for a table because of my mobility issues and was put into the section I specifically asked not to be put into because it's difficult to be in a booth. No one seemed to care about anything - especially not on this visit.

The food was good for the majority of the table. My friend ordered the chicken tenders, which were so dry, they were inedible. The waitress brought us a replacement ( I suggested the chicken burger because mine was really good). It was so salty it burnt our tongues. When the manager came over he reeked so bad of cigarettes that the option of more food was sickening

Good service with the waiters and managers trying to help me with gluten free options due to my celiac disease, but the food is just horrible. Out of 4 dinners only one of my children liked their food. It took over an hour and I was even charged for extra broccoli which came out cold with no seasoning and was a substitute for the potato’s I couldn’t eat. Good place for drinks at bar but if you are going for good food don’t do it.

Absolutely ranks as one of my worst dining experiences. Words fail me.
Seriously, I am not kidding when I refer to this experience as “a joke”.

Had dinner with 2 friends that I went to highschool with 50 years ago. Food was excellent as was the half price bottles of wine. Our waiter Gabrielle enhanced the experience even more. He was attentive, always checking to make sure we were okay. Fantastic personality and very sociable and had a beautiful smile and a wonderful sense of humour. Even asked us for our opinion on his choice of clothes for an upcoming wedding he was going to. Will definetly look for him again when we come back for dinner.

We had to wait extremely long periods of time to get things, such as water, food, drinks etc... The food was just horrible. We waited for approximately 30 mins to get our bill. We had to go to the front desk and ask to pay. At that time we ask to speak with a manager, one came and upon expressing how horrible the food and service was he gave us his card and told us he'll take care of us next time. There will be no next time because we don't plan to ever return. We believe that was the manager's way of saying he basically don't care.

We were seated in a very dark corner of the restaurant. It was so dark we used cell phone lights to see the food.
We were seated for 15 minutes before my husband when to ask someone to bring us some water and asked if were going to have a waitress.
The services was so slow and disappointing.

The waiter seemed to be avoiding us for the most part. We had to flag him down to get drinks and the bill and he seemed not in the mood to serve us. We felt it could be because we were a same sex couple but we can’t say that for sure. He wasn’t very friendly or timely with our items. Our food was delivered by someone else. He only brought us the drinks and they took long. Not trying to get anyone in trouble here. Maybe he was just having a bad day or personal issues. Just wasn’t the experience I usually get at Moxies any of the many times I’ve been there.

Usually the experience is better than the last one. You ran out of everything. My husband ordered ribs with fries (no coleslaw left). Without even asking if perhaps he wanted a small salad instead of coleslaw, a clump of potatoes was on the side of the ribs. He already had fries with his meal. No sense!

We felt sorry for the servers - they tried their best. Not enough servers were working (on Father's Day).
The food was on back order. Our cheese nachos were in a cheesy clump. Very expensive night for this poor demonstration of hospitality.
