Diner Reviews
  • "Had a very excellent lunch with friends-no rush to eat and leave-staff very attentive-open face veal sandwich was excellent-restaurant very crowded for lunch on a weekday-reservations are strongly suggested for lunch and are a MUST for dinner."

  • "I have dined at Moxie many times and usually give it high marks, however, this past Friday the restaurant was OFF ITS GAME. I ordered the special -- red grouper--. It was undercooked (really raw in the thickest part of the filelt) and I sent it back. It disappeared for a long time and came back on a hot plate but the fish was still not cooked through -- it was not even hot to the touch. I sent it back again. Another longish wait and it was brought back after the rest of our party had finished eating. The manager did the right thing and without being asked, removed it from our bill, but for a restaurant of this caliber, this was amateur night. They seemed to be short staffed in the bussing dept. too."

  • "Returning to Moxie's is like returning to an old friends home for dinner. The staff is always friendly and the food is consistent. The fish special for the night we dined was the choice for the majority of the party and was cooked perfectly."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I find the food is very consistent here. Sometimes the portions are really small, but I generally love the selections and the bread and dip is amazing....try not to fill up on it."

  • "Fod was perfect, wins terrific and so was the service"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Monday night half price wine by the bottle was the draw here. Food was prepared as described and delivered in a timely manner."

  • "Had a relaxing lunch with an associate from out of town and we had a great time. Perfect."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "There were 4 of us for dinner. We had requested outdoor seating and it was immediately available on a Sat night (not always the case in other restaurants). The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food and gave very precise and comprehensive descriptions of the food. There were two specials the night that we were there and two of us had one and two of us had the other. They were both excellent. I had the fish and it was not only cooked well but the other items that it was plated with were perfectly suited to the dish. Service was just right, not too pushy and not too slow. Portions are fairly substantial but everyone ate their entire plate. All in all an excellent evening."

  • "Wonderful food - the herb crusted walleye melted in my mouth - savory! Lamb special was the best while everything else is the usual fare but always delicious."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We've been to Moxie's many times over the last 15+ years and always enjoy the food/ambiance. However, the last two times we've been there, our waitress (the same one both times) made our dining experience disappointing. After our appetizer orders, she never showed up to ask for our main course order. Quite some time passed when we finally had to resort to waving her over. Later, we discovered some fruit flies IN the bread bowl which had just been brought to us, so we asked her to take it back. Without even checking, her initial reaction was a defiant "No, there are no bugs!". We informed her we were certainly not hallucinating. Our food was great (as usual - kudos to the chefs), but the restaurant needs to improve training of the staff."

  • "Had a great meal here on a prior visit to Cleveland. Despite the cordial reception, lovely patio setting, and perfectly-cooked salmon that my husband was fortunate to have ordered, we won't be back. Inconsistent kitchen, and the server was inattentive, very slow, and generally MIA. My steak (ordered medium) was served up medium-well; green beans were so salty and otherwise over seasoned as to be inedible; the "frites" were completely unsalted, limp, and cold. Noticing uneaten veg, server commented; upon hearing politely-expressed explanation of why the veg was uneaten, he offered no apology, acted like I wasn't there and addressed only my husband. Big mistake. I make our reservations, pay our checks, and write our reviews. Get a clue."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "For the price, I was expecting something much better than what I can order at the Cheesecake Factory. The steak was over seasoned and with something that tasted like Lawry's seasoning to boot. Will not be back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • " After we ordered our entrees, she asked "green salad or caesar salad?" The way she presented the question we thought it was included and responded. We didn't even want it. When the check came, to my surprise, there was a $35 charge for salads. When I questioned it I was told everything is ala carte. I told her she should have asked us if we wanted salad and not made it sound as if it was included. She said ok, let me see what the manager will do. She came back and said the manager would take $20 off the bill. I was even more insulted. She seem to think this was ok. I had no intention of paying for this salad, so I deducted the extra $15 from the tip. This is quite a "con""

  • "Multiple daily specials. Great appetizers. Varied and fairly reasonable wine list. Servers were present but not in your face. All in all well worth the effort and money."

  • "Best date night I've had in a long time, great wine."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "My cousin was in town so my wife and I took her to dinner. The appetizers and meals were excellent. The drinks were very good. The service was very good. Except for the water. As in the last time, we had to ask, and finally got a refill when we were about to leave."

  • "Been to Moxie 10 times or so and am always extremely impressed with the food. Never had a meal less than outstanding."

  • "... and this place makes it fun coming back again and again. Purple potato and fennel soup was just good so we moved on to the Caesar's salad which was just ok, but the soft shell crab were delish as was the steak. They are always attentive but not 'in your face' which is GREAT. Always love the variety of bread with tapanade (sp?). Good Job!"

  • "Normally we have excellent service and everything is perfect. Unfortunately this. time they were issues but management was quite nice and picked up our lunches"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "service was well below normal for this restaurant and the special BE chicken salad was not good - and was overpriced. usually find the food and service to be very good. will try again, but disappointed."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Food is always good. Service was a bit stretched due to Memorial day and opening of the outside dining...we stayed in. However, the staff did a great job of covering for each other. Moxie's really is a team. Nice work."

  • "One of the top restaurant in the Cleveland area.. Great food and pleasant atmosphere. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "For a birthday celebration for a dear friend, Moxie treated us to a fabulous evening. We were seated at a comfortable booth. Our server was jovial, professional, and attentive. Our favorite wine was not listed on the wine list, but she took the time to go to the bin and found a bottle of it for us. Each and every course was perfectly presented and was delicious. The surprise birthday dessert for my friend was also presented well. It was also delicious, and was the perfect ending to a perfect evening!"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Our first visit was good. The food and seating was great but the service was fair. Our server disappeared for a long time. I had to flag down a busboy to find her. We got a free dessert but rather have better service"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The FOOD is amazing! Great steak, scallops and salads - especially the beet salad!"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Really disappointed. I wasn't at all impressed with the food offerings at the buffet, the service was subpar (I understand with a buffet we don't need much attention, but we sat with empty water glasses for a while), had to wait 15 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. Overall, very unhappy with what we paid and what we got. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Had Mother's Day brunch with husband, son & his girlfriend. We loved the assortment of veggie-based dishes and balance between breakfast and lunch dishes. My husband is a big-time breakfast person and loved the offerings too. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We dined at 7PM, which turned out to be very good. The place started to be very busy around 7:45PM. Our waitress was very friendly ( although we only had one drink and no dessert). The food is outstanding. Our table was covered with a paper sheet, which we did not like because the corners turned up as we eat. The waitress suggested that next time we should request a table with tablecloth cover only. We will be back at Moxie's."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Food and service is always good. We took friends for an anniversary and they comped the dessert for them. That was a smart move that many restaurants do not do. But we frequently dine here becuz it is near us and good...great hamburger!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • " Our waiter was fantastic, food was outstanding, great night"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "The tag team servers introduced themselves by saying the dinner rush was slowing down, yet were not attentive. To counteract their slow and shoddy service, both servers stated that they would give my wife and I time, and to not rush. When I stated we weren't looking to make it a long night, and that we were ready to order, the service was still slow. Both servers walked by my table at least 3 or 4 times without refilling either of our champagne glasses, and overcharged for the bottle. When I brought this to their attention, both servers were more focused on filling other patron's waters rather than fixing my check. The food was great and I will go back for it, however I will request another server if sat in either of their sections."

    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Moxie's makes you feel welcome and you are important! Service and food great they recognize you by name and sight! In spot!"
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "Not an extravagant Easter brunch, but was quick, and offered enough to please everyone. Nice part was that it was brunch in a restaurant and not a ballroom, so food line(s) didn't get overly crowded. Food was good. Omelet, prime rib, and ham station was good, with quality ingredients."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Food was good, waitress was pretty good BUT,Tables were too close together. Felt like they were just trying to get as many in as possible without regards to dining comfort. Daughter was pregnant and we had to ask if she could cut through the serving kitchen as she could not make it between the tables:(. Way too expensive for the ambience for this brunch ."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Moxie is just a rock solid place to go for lunch or dinner. As a place for business dinners or serious social efforts...there is none better. It is vibrant in a calm way. Quiet with background hum. Valet is top notch. Food is always superb and price is good...and you get what you pay for. In NEOhio...this is my go-to and benchmark."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "After hearing about Moxie over the years we were treated to a gift certificate for our anniversary. We invited another couple to join us. From the moment we walked in the dining experience started. We were immediately greeted and before we were seated asked if we preferred a table or booth. Our waiter made the experience. His descriptions of the menu items were informative and enjoyable to listen to making our selections even harder. Wine selection recommendations were spot on. Food presentation and quantities were outstanding. We all selected a different fish and the flavors were outstanding. The whole dining experience made for a very enjoyable evening."

  • "As good a dining experience as I can recall. The cheese board was incredible and the tuna was off the charts. All this in such a beautiful and lively atmosphere."
