Wonderful opportunity to celebrate our son’s 32nd birthday. Food was delicious and served perfectly. 4 of us tried the vegetarian bowl and it was absolutely perfect. The server (sorry don’t know his name but has a lovely accent and tattoos) was extremely attentive and checked in on us frequently. He did an amazing job handling a large family like ours(10adults and 2 small children). Whomever you are…. Keep up the great work!!! Atmosphere was perfect and low noise level which is how we like it. Great job Moxies!! 🙌🏼

Great food, service was good. i asked for a Standard Height table and was seated at a high top.. Hightop tables can cause issues for some people who have circulation problems and need feet on the floor to prevent swelling. Hightop table was not appreciated.

Our server was great - food and everything else was very underwhelming! The nacho appetizer was small for the price, the steak in the steak and frites entree was covered in this thick salt and pepper goo and was very tough and the white chocolate brownie tasted raw and very flourey…the whole table ate similar things and all had the same outcome! It looks like a nice restaurant but I think they need to focus down their menu and do less items really well instead of offering tons of mediocre fare!

This was my Birthday dinner. We got there and were seated right away but was about 15-20 minutes before anyone came to greet us and get our drink orders.
When we ordered our entrees, I order the salmon and my husband the full rack of ribs. My salmon was very over cooked to the point it was rubbery. My husband asked for fries with his order but when it came out he had mashed potatoes. Our entrees were laid in front of us by our server with the same passion as you’d feel your dog. Just laid them there and walked away.
When she was walking by we had to flag her down to get her attention. I told her that my husband ordered fries and she said no he didn’t. I told her my salmon was over cooked and she just gave me a look of distain and said she’d get the manager. He came out, we told him about our meals and he was nice enough to offer me a better cooked piece of salmon and to get my husband the fries he ordered. She came back and just sort of slid the piece of salmon towards me and placed my husbands fries down, then under her arm she pulled out the menu and proceeded to show my husband that the ribs came with mashed potatoes not fries. My husband just looked at her and said yes I was aware of that but reminded her that it was customary to let the customer choose the side. She was not very nice.
I tasted my salmon and it was exactly the same way as the first piece. Very disappointing. My birthday dinner consisted of ancient grains and raw broccoli.
Even though we had enough of the “atmosphere” so to speak, my husband insisted we order desert being my birthday. We ordered the salted caramel cheesecake for $9.50 each.
It was ok. Every restaurant had cheesecake right?
When we got the bill we were over charged fir the deserts. $10 each as opposed to $9.50. I have no space left to finish but overall a horrible birthday dinner. No more Moxies for us.
Over $120 is a lot to pay for what we experienced. I wish a refund so we can go somewhere else for by birthday meal.

The best experience in 14 years in Canada
The food presentation and taste is un-beatable.
The service from the waitress from Pasadena, ( don't know her name ) was the BEST POSSIBLE ever. Athough she served at least 30 people,it felt like we were her only clients.
Can not wait to go back - Moxie's has NEVER let us down !!!!
