A bit too salty
All three of us enjoyed our dinners very much! I would recommend that the chef use less salt when preparing his dishes. Our entrees as well as side dished were all salted too heavily.

Amazing as usual
Daniel was our server. He was fabulous! Roasted olives a must. Ricotta and honey app so good! Wine list outstanding. Lamb meatballs...yum.

They have a great half price bottle of wine deal for bottles under $100. Pair it with a brick oven pizza and you have a great Monday night!
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
everything was perfect......the service was good, friendly, attentive. the only thing i think was unprofessional is that when the server and the food runners delivered the food to our table, they would auction off the drinks and food by announcing "who gets the......". kind of tacky!

Great duck confit. The salmon was quite good as well. The strawberry shortcake parfait was forgettable

Lunch with a friend
I always enjoy meeting a friend for lunch at Moxie. I like the feel of the place, plus the food and service is always very good.

Fun Spot for Variation
This place always changes up their menu which is GREAT! Fish, beef, wonderful unique soups - you never know what tasty meal you might find.
7/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
More vegetarian entrees, please!
The food was outstanding, and the service was exceptional, but I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Keep coming back
Never disappointed; consistent! Friday nights can be a little jammed but during the week, this place is great for a fast meal. Try the soups - they are always something new, different and delicious.

They ran out of the white
They ran out of the white fish special and substituted walleye. Excellent!!! but a bit pricey

As always Moxie didn't disappoint.
As always Moxie didn't disappoint. We all ordered something different and were very happy. I had the tuna and it was fabulous. The baked hot chocolate was a shared dessert. Our favorite.

Great service and wonderful
Great service and wonderful menu. We ate in the bar, which was really nice, and much more quiet than the restaurant.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We tried Moxie after reading the recent Plain Dealer review. Although the food was very good, what was truly outstanding was the service and care we received from our server Judith. It was as though we were welcome guests in her own home. Friendly and attentive, she gave us excellent recommendations for both food and wine. The mixed greens salad is exceptional and is served with a unique vinaigrette. The Asian-themed halibut special should be on the regular menu. Short ribs melt in your mouth. Dessert must-haves are the lemon tart and the Toblerone torte. On a low note, the restaurant decor is odd with large, distorted faces peering down from high up on the walls - creepy. We'll be back primarily because of Judith!

Moxie the Consistent
The test of a great chef and restaurant is consistency - consistently excellent - and that is Moxie's. It was my mum's 82nd birthday and she loves the calamari and it remains outstanding in taste, consistency and balance. Simple, yet warming. The special (the grouper with the ratatouille) was truly outstanding and balanced in every way (and we are fish snobs).
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always something new
The menu always presents something new and unique. Great neighborhood restaurant.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Moxie will not dissappoint.
Prices are high but so is the quality of food and service, You will not be dissappointed as long as you have enough slack availavle on your credit card.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My 3rd time in the last few weeks. Food is good, as was the service-finally. The two prior times , I could only described the service as "benign neglect."

We had a party of eight--celebratin
We had a party of eight--celebrating wedding anniversaries of our children and our own and -1 for our daughter and her fiance. Our waitress helped us with answers to all our questions about small plates, salads and appetizers, entrees and desserts. No one had any complaints about the many items we selected. We may make it the spot for tuture anniversary celebrations.

Terrific meal for group of 9
Had us at a round table per our request. Eli, our server, was delightful and attentive. Accommodated all our special requests and got us out as needed for another event. Food was fresh, attractive and tasty.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Monday night is half price wine night - fantastic! Excellent food, and really enjoyed eating outdoors.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Moxie is a wonderful restaurant. It is great for lunch or for dinner. The bar is wonderful. The food is great. The service is excellent. It is just a great restaurant.

So glad to revisit Moxie
It had been several years since we had last visited Moxie, and were looking for a local, special place to celebrate our anniversary. Dinner was wonderful and exactly what we had hoped for. In my Open Table reservation I indicated that it was an anniversary celebration. At the end of the meal the server brought a special dessert inscribed with Happy Anniversary, and I didn't even have to remind them. The best part was the atmosphere, the service and the great food. We are happy to have rediscovered Moxie and will be back again soon. With all the great restaurants in the Cleveland area (yes there are quite a few), Moxie is still up there with the best of them. Moxie is as good as any fine restaurant in the country, and parking is free.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been around for a while but always with creative dishes and consistently good food.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently the BEST! Good job - keep the great specials coming. Always enjoy the soups, chilled and hot, fresh salads, fresh seafood.
9/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
Lots of Moxie
GREAT food, changes often, only problem-tables too close together!
9/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Food great, service inconsistent
A few minutes early for our reservation we were seated in a booth and the dining room was busy with most tables full. As we sat and looked through the menu and wine list, we waited, and then we waited more. Finally my wife, who is the most patient person I know, started timing the wait. It ended up over 10 minutes before the waiter came over to ask if we wanted a drink. The pace, his demeanor was uneven at first slow, then rushed. It felt like we were on his time instead of ours.
The food was great, grilled salmon with some grilled asparagus and fingerling potatoes. The salmon was cooked perfectly with a slight crust. The portion size for the potatoes and asparagus was small, but the salmon fillet more than made up for what was lacking.

Go To Restaurant
When we are on the east side of Cleveland, this is the restaurant we love to frequent.
On Mondays, Moxie has been having gourmet pizza, and half price on bottles of wine under $100. This has been an additional draw for us to visit Moxies more often. I hope they continue with this offer.
If you decide that pizza isn't for you, the other gourmet entrees are wonderful - I speak from experience.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent, attentive service
Moxie's serving model is awesome, staff was informed, friendly, professional. Food fantastic. Took a colleague from Holland and he was incredibly impressed.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
food was excellent and better
food was excellent and better than we expected. However the service was poor to fair, although the waiter mentioned he was new
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful dinner celebrating my Mom's birthday. We had the grouper and filet -- both were excellent. Cooked perfectly, great flavors and great accompaniments. The atmosphere is chic but still homey & comfortable. The service was not rushed and enabled us to enjoy the meal fully. Our server was excellent! We had a person with a dietary restriction and Jody handled it very well. She was able to talk to the chefs and ensure our guest made an informed choice of menu options. If I go back, I would definitely ask for Jody as she made our experience the best it could be.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I met my friend for lunch. The food was good, not great. The service was excellent for a lunch rush. Our waitress was very attentive. The atmosphere was noisy but fun. I would return again for lunch or dinner.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is great. I eat there alot so a little tired of the menu options. More variety would be nice.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
the food at moxie is always good. it gets busy there on any night so service may not be as attentive as you would like! also, can get noisy because of the crowds. but food is always amazing!
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Moxie is my favorite restaurant
It's awesome all around...very high quality food, great service, wonderful ambiance. Love it!!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always LOTS of food options - which makes it hard to decide. We enjoyed every different item we ordered from the calamari, to the soups to great fish dishes.
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Four of us had lunch and becaise of a very full dinning room we were seated in the bar. That was our luck because the area was classy and the noise level was several decibles lower than in the main dinning area. The dishes were tomato basil soup, a hamburger,a cob salad and two grilled chicken salads.All ranged ftom good(cob salad )to delicious (The soup) This is about par for our experiences at Moxie
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food as always was good.Always
The food as always was good.Always get the burger ther and it may seem a bit pricey, it's well worth it. Their fries there make a great pick at bites. My wife had a fish that was on special there (forget the name) . It was meaty and not too heavy as opposed to the usual salmon. Service was ok;. hey, it's hard to hit a home run all the time. Biut it did suffice and they did not rush us when we were finished. One thing that irks me about Moxie's is the price of the drinks. They are oiut of line n their pricing as compared to others of that caliber. But, you want a drink...what can you do. If they lower it by a dollar I wouldn't think it would too much. If I were you..don't order a mixed drink but order your alcohol straight up

Great Food for the occasion
We went to Moxie on restaurant week to try it out. The food was really good and it accurately reflects the prices which are not cheap. That's why it is a good place for an occasion or the weekend. The service was good and friendly although a bit slow due to the business as I did see our server running around. She did get some help from others on the floor who kept checking on us and making recommendations which was great.
Overall, i would definitely go back but until my salary changes, I would go back for occasions.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall experience was nice. We got there right as dinner started at 5:30, seemed to take a little while for a server too approach us. Their Wine list (while extensive) is expensive. We went for the restaurant week and the meal was delicious. And their desserts are pretty big.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was spotty a little
Service was spotty a little unusual. Food still tasted great.

Great Restaurant for an evening out
I had a great time at this restaurant. Although I hadn't eaten here in a long time, the food was just as good as I had remembered. The service was great, and the food was excellent. The only downside was our portions for our appetizer and salad were so big, we weren't able to finish our dinners, but we were able to take them home :) .
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I'm glad I came during restaurant week because the menu is slightly pricey but the food was amazing. I was a little disappointed with the cookie... Too crispy and very plain.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was very good. Had the mushroom scallops which I highly recommend and mussels for appetizers. Fries were very good. Main course rob eye very good and short ribs. Dessert was toblerone. Over all very good meal. Half price wine night was a definite plus
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Moxie never disappoints ...
Food and service are always excellent. Service is speedy enough during the lunch hour making it a great spot for a lunch meeting.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We did the Cleveland Dine-Around
We did the Cleveland Dine-Around (restricted menu). Excellent presentation and quality. Team-served accurately. Noisy, tables too tight--booths O.K. Open kitchen fun to watch.

There was a little problem
There was a little problem with the food order, but the manager solved it to our satisfaction.

Great business dinner
Second time here in two weeks. Took a prospective client for dinner. Service was attentive. Food was great. Great drinks. The decor was tasteful. I recommend it.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Superb for business lunch
Have not been here for a while...but will be back routinely. Superb food...a bit much for lunch but ate it all none the less. Really a just excellent place. Keep up the great food and service.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took a date here the other evening and we both absolutely loved what Moxie had to offer. Our food was fantastic, including our appetizer, entrees and dessert. The wine menu is expansive and accommodating to all tastes; we enjoyed our choice. I would recommend for a special occasion as the restaurant is pricey but you can't beat it in terms of quality. Great food and great service!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was great - not outstanding - but great. Getting kind pricey while portion sizes are getting smaller.
