Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "The bar and the bartender are phenomenal. Food was very good and the service was great, no rush to turn the table and attention to detail was there but not overbearing great combination, great experience. Will definitely be back."

  • "I had heard that this place had a great beef reputation and I ordered a Thai salad with beef skewers and the beef came very rare so I asked to have it cooked more and it took a very long time to get back the few pieces of beef and when it came back it was just as rare. I asked the waitress to show it to the mgr. and she did. The mgr. was very apologetic and said there was no excuse for it and that he would make it right. He did pick up the entire tab and offered my husband a free birthday dessert but it was a disappointing birthday meal. The owner was the one we met who recommended this restaurant and I know he would be disappointed too with the chef or cook who tried to cook my beef."

  • "The atmosphere was wonderful and the staff was professional. One of the meals was overly salty, but the rest of our experience was very good."

  • "Moxie hit the Cleveland restaurant scene several years ago and got the foodies buzzing about the new cool place in town. Years later, the buzz continues. Great, interesting food, a well trained wait staff (one of my big turn ons or offs for dining out), and a vibrant scene always makes for a fun night."

  • "Moxie's is a great place to eat, great service and staff. They know you by name after a visit of two and always greet you as if you are family. The food is great, the soups to die for. Reasonable for what you get. They really make sure all is great and comfortable. I love being there and seeing lots of folks I know. You are not rushed and alway a great experience."

  • "I decided to pick a random restaurant off the OpenTable list of available reservations for Valentine's Day. Totally paid off! Of course I had to do a bit of research via Google images and reviews, none of which scared me off. It took a bit of time for the waiter to come over, greet us and bring drinks but he at least acknowledged the fact that he was a bit behind. The food was great! 22 oz medium-rare Ribeye cooked to perfection! The seafood plate my girlfriend ordered was also delicious. Rather pricey but for a special occasion, why not?!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I haven't been to Moxie's in years. We thought we'd try it again for Valentine's Day. We were not dissapointed. We both ordered steak. I had the Ribeye special and she ordered the filet mignon - all I can say is WOW! The steaks were outstanding. Way to go!"

  • "Our Ceasar salads did not have the real Cesar dressing on them....weird My husband ordered frites...never got them... Restaurant was packed and loud...hard to hear our waiter. Gulf Shrimp were overcooked and chewy. Salmon was perfect..food not real hot...Wine overpriced Our first and last visit"

  • "Took my family there for dinner the day after Valentine's Day. The place was busy. I felt like the waitress was a bit in attentive. On one hand I don't like feeling rushed but if you spend too much time looking for the waitress, that's a problem as well. The food finally came. One steak was ordered as medium had to be sent back because it was too rare. I had the bone in ribeye encrusted in blur cheese which turned out to be a steak with too much blue cheese dumped on top. The sides were soso. The chicken was good and the pork ramen was tasty. The desserts were mediocre and unimaginative. The lemon curd dessert was a bunch of lemon curd in a pastry crust. The other was a very dry apple crumble. I won't be going back soon."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The service was poor, after getting our salads we waited 45 min to get our food. The rarely checked on us but after the first 30 min he said did we want a free appetizer but I was already irritated at this point. Then when our steaks arrive they didn't give us steak knives and our waiter was nowhere to be found. We have had flag down another waitress to get it which took another 5min and our is getting cold while we wait. The only good thing was the manager did give us our entire meal free for the inconvenience but I would never go back. P.S. the food was good though."

  • "We enjoyed Moxie for its good food and nice service. Our waitress took good care of us and kept our experience fun. The open atmosphere of the main room was not intimate but still enjoyable. I would recommend it to a friend."

  • "I frequent Moxies and the food is great! Our service was not good though (which is odd for Moxies). Our waiter brought hot water for tea but never brought cups! My food came out 10 minutes prior to the person with which I was eating. Our waiters response was more of an "oops" but it didn't change the service for the rest of the meal."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I go to Moxie all the time and I have never had a meal there that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. The menu changes all the time so you don't get bored or end up ordering the same thing over and over, The wine list is extensive and if you are not familiar with a wine, they will make sure you get some advice on choosing one. It is one of my favorite restaurants. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "We had the filet and ribeye, as I'd heard they were the same served at Red, for a slightly cheaper price. Salad left much to be desired, and seemed like robbery at $9 a pop, and they could have used a few more beer options (but plenty of wines to choose from, if you're into that - maybe I'm just spoiled with all the craft beer availability nowadays), but the complimentary bread/butter and the steaks themselves were fantastic. For two people to eat heartily and have leftovers, with tip, it was ~$150."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "This was our first time visiting Moxie and we will not be going back. For the price, we would rather go somewhere else. Service was not good. Forget about getting drinks promptly. We also had our meals delivered and they forgot steak knives, so we had to wait a while before we could even get the attention of our waitress. By the time we got our knives, our food had already cooled considerably. The dessert was the highlight of the night. We got the apple tartlet and it was amazing!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Poor service. From the slow greeting and seating at hostess stand to literally having to beg the server to pour wine at the table. As usual this is more than an issue of performance, it stems from lack of training and management"

  • "Good location for business lunch. Can get in and out in a reasonable amount of time without being rushed. Service was very good - not rushed or too slow for a business lunch. Noise level is fairly high which makes conversation a little difficult but not totally unreasonable. Pricing acceptable. Quality and quality of food is good."

  • "We had a group of seven to celebrate a milestone birthday. The food was very good, the service friendly and the birthday dessert was beautiful. After we left the restaurant we realized we overtipped the waitress. I called Moxie the next morning and was told the general manager would call me back. I am disappointed that he never contacted me."

  • "My friend wanted to treat us to dinner at one of her favorite places - Moxie, so we went Fri night. She was very disappointed in the special- which was grouper. I had the scallops, which were very salty because of the pork accents. We had hoped for a nicer dinner. My friend apologized - we still had a pleasant time, but I wouldn't go back."

Sometimes, when the restaurant is full, the noise level can be somewhat loud. We were with a friend, who has the same feeling about Moxie as we do, and he and his wife enjoy eating at Moxie, the same as we."
