Have always liked Moxies for a casual/easy dinner place. Have done take-out over the lockdown (mostly finger foods) and this was the first time going for a seating. Was disappointed because some of our favourite foods are no longer on the menu: sushi cones, chicken tacos (I tried the shrimp ones and they were good, but not always keen on shrimp), FILET MIGNON - how can such a staple disappear from a menu??, and those decadent double-cooked potatoes cannot be replaced by the ordinary french fry...
I will still eat here, but not with as much enthusiasm as before

It was our first time back to Moxies in a long time because of COVID. My husband and I were both disappointed in our meals as both of them had way too much salt. Hopefully a one time thing as we have never experienced this in the past.

We couldn’t decide on what to eat so we asked the waitress and she was very helpful. We ended up getting a few items and sharing them, very good and on time. Lots of seating options too.

We’ve had good experiences in the past but this time not so much. It wasn’t as busy of a night at the restaurant which confused us more about this experience. After we sat down we waited 15 minutes before our server acknowledged us (which we watched another server remind them about us) and it was 35 minutes before we even got water. When we got our food my partner steak was over cooked on one side and undercooked on the other which was just not what we were expecting for the price. After we had finished eating and were waiting for the bill to come we watched our server go to the table beside us 4 times without sparing us a second glance. After watching this and waiting another 15 minutes my partner ended up going to the front to ask if we could just pay… which then took awhile again before the bill actually showed up. We’ve had good experiences here in the past with good food but this just wasn’t one of them.

Great service. Good food but they need to get their front desk up to par. I was eating my meal inside when I was notified by OpenTable that my reservation was cancelled. They did not know I was inside even though I clearly checked in at the front desk. Not the first time either

Thé food was not as fresh as usual. In one of the plate that was serve to us, we found an hair approximately 20 inches long. The manager on shift came to see us and gave us an honest answer. He also took care of us. This is unusual for this restaurant but nevertheless this is not what you expect.

Server Lulu was slow and not very welcoming, we waited 15 mins before she came to our table for the first time, left empty classes when getting refills and wasn’t very present during the evening. The 2 staff members who brought us our food were very cheery and delightful they were very accommodating and were fast and efficient.

The food was delicious but was disappointed that they changed the poke tuna:( have been going there for years and love the poke tuna but they removed the tomatoes from the recipe and switched to a mix of wonton chips, the wonton chips don’t go with the poke tuna:( only reason I gave four stars for food.

Other than that it was great, always love our experience at Moxies Orleans! Service always great:) and the birthday girl was thrilled!!

This restaurant is close by and really close to the movie theatre. Perfect for going for a drink after a movie.
The food is always dependable to be tasty. The portions are not too small nor too big, nor are the plates heaped with fillers such as fries. If I have company from out of town, I like taking them to Moxie's.

We had a very nice, friendly and caring waitress. Share calamari and dry ribs were great. Steak in the steak salad was rare as requested. Miso Ramen bowl+shrimps was really good and the bowl was so large that it could probably serve two people, especially after shared plates. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was really well made and could be a meal of its own or great for sharing again. Overall, highly recommended based on our experience!
