Diner Reviews
  • "We have always loved this restaurant and it was always out "go to" spot. But last Friday night the service was DEPLORABLE! Not only was the service slow and inattentive, they got our orders wrong: entrees not cooked correctly, wrong sides, and desert not cooked. We could forgive all of that, but no one acknowledged the mishaps. The RIGHT thing to do was offer us free deserts or coffee, but nothing. That kind of unapologetic service is inexcusable. Regretfully, we will not be back."

  • "I usually go to Moxie for business. When I tell my wife she is always jealous and says, "We should go there." I invited her to lunch and suggested Moxie. Although we had both been there before, every time we return it's a special experience. We were not disappointed this time and I scored some extra points with my wife (always a plus). Thanks so much."

  • "Moxie is a reliable experience though not the value it once was. At first glance the menu seemed a bit tired but on further investigation, there were some new interesting choices, among them a roasted cauliflower appetizer."

  • "Tremendous meal and the service was excellent. We met with a party for discussion and their was not rush to move us through the meal and on to the next guest. All food was excellently prepared."

  • "Food was terrific. Menu was fairly priced with most entres between $25-30. Wine menu was a little pricey. Staff was friendly and good service. Outdoor seating was pretty with nice accustic live music. I would definitely go back - One of our new favorites"

  • "I had a business guest for lunch. I made reservations for 11:30 AM. We arrived on time. It was well after 12:15 when our food arrived. The waitress did apologize that it was taking "longer than usual." There was no one in the restaurant when we were seated. It was packed by the time we finished our meal at 1:00."

  • "The Cobb salad is back yeah best salmon on the planet."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I'm usually a 20% at least tipper but I couldn't justify giving our server more than 10% and I didn't even want to do that. Was celebrating my best friends birthday and she put a damper on our whole evening by acting like she didn't want us there."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Service was slow waited over 45 minutes for entrees when mentioned to the manager we never saw the manager again. Waiter disappeared. I will never go back or ever recommend this restaurant to anyone. The lack of personal service was terrible. A $250 bill for four people is a nice check. Someone should have responded to us while we were there."

  • "We are never let down at Moxie. The food is fantastic, the outdoor space is great and the new late-night menu is scrumptious! And it's cheese month - fantastic selections of local cheese."

  • "It was such a great dining experience. The patio is a wonderful atmosphere. The food was amazing and they had live music playing on the patio and it really enhanced the entire experience. Salmon was perfectly cooked and the drinks were yum."

  • "Out of towners found Moxie via an Urban Spoon search. Host staff were over the top accommodating our late arrival. Wait staff were quick to get our drink orders in, realizing our post 7 hour drive need to kick back. We wanted to try several appetizers tapas style and they made that easy. All the choices were perfectly plated and delicious. Looking forward to a return visit when back in Cleveland!"

  • "We enjoyed a delicious meal at Moxie. We decided to sit inside although most diners picked the patio.Our meals included the crab cakes, filet, and a grilled sirloin special, and their frites. My fiance loved the creamed corn side that came with the filet but wasn't a fan of the smoked tomato jam that topped the filet. We have visited the adjacent Red's Steakhouse several times, but this was our first visit to Moxie and it will not be our last. We look forward to our next visit."

  • "We had a booth. The restauranr was not crowded and we were able to relax and take our time enjoying our company and the food. I enjoy the other ouple we were with and we could visit and hear one another. The food was excellent. My pork chop was well prepared and delicious. I especially enjoyed the accompaning polenta and roasted cauliflower. My husbands ribeye was equally well prepared. Our service was perfect."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "It took almost thirty minutes for our drinks to arrive. The server said that there was only one bartender on duty. Food was slow in coming, too, and waiters kept trying to take away my husbands salad before he was finished."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "A notably slow but very pleasant server, however not sure that was her doing or the kitchens; be that as it may, both the kale salad , chicken and tuna were absolutely delicious, perfect temperature, pleasing presentation."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This is the place to come for GOOD comfort food - whether an appetizer-calamari, a salad-beet salad (wonderful), a burger (delish!) or the lamb ratatouille, every dish is at it's best. The wine list is good, the wait staff is attentive (sometimes too attentive) but all in all, everyone enjoyed every last bite! The desserts are always TOPS-great key line cheesecake or the flourless chocolate bomb, sorbet-fresh."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "... 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!"
