Everything about this restaurant was great and I would definitely return. The pros were the mostly enclosed, heated patio which made it possible to eat outdoors. Our server was good and recommended some good options we enjoyed.

The cons are the food is a bit pricey for what it is. 2 drinks were $20 when an appropriate price would be $12-14, and 2 meals were $60 when they’re worth about $45. Our food also came quick, but no cutlery was brought so we had to ask for it. They gave a free cake for a birthday which was nice!

I brought my elderly mother out for lunch. The staff was amazing by providing a table for a person with mobility issues without asking me. Also the sever was particularly helpful and attentive. She was one of the best servers I have had in quite a while.

We attended for 2 of our friends birthday. The booth was great and spacious. The food and drinks were good. However the service was quite poor. The server was nice but hardly came around to attend to us. We had to keep calling her over while she attended other tables. What was a turn off was that our plates and drinks were not cleared off the table while we were socializing.

Good food, excellent waitress. I’m not a fan of their new menu. I long for a Open Face Tuscan Chicken sandwich! What would they take that off the menu! Not sure if I’ll return to this restaurant.

We found the food a little salty which I don't use much of it so not used to it but still delicious. We both had the lemon salmon.

It wasn't loud so this was good too.

Overall, had a great time.

Had the soup & salad. Soup was terrible, the caesar salad had no leaf, just the ends, too much dressing and no cheese. The garlic bread was stone cold. Moxie's used to be one of my favourite places to go... since the pandemic? Not so much.

From the hostess (Ava), the manager the "bus boy"and our server, the service was 10/10! The patio is covered and warm and the fire pit outside is a beautiful addition. Nice to sit at on a fall night! Food was good...if you want a great Moxies experience...the pickering location is the one!!!

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)
