Went on a lunch date with my wife. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was delicious, although my sandwich was like 1000 degrees when I got it. It still tasted very good, just burnt my fingers when I went to pick it up the first time. I think this is probably a one-of situation. I would definitely recommend.

It was our first visit for
It was our first visit for the group of 6 of us. It had been a long time since we had seen each other and wanted a quiet comfortable place to catch up. Darren looked after us when we were there we left it up to him to choose our wines and food. He did a fabulous job, he gave us a taste of many items on the menu and some great wine selections to go with them.
I would highly recommend Moriarity's for a larger group or a nice night out for a couple. We look forward to revisiting and sitting on the patio when that season finally returns.

Although the food was delicious,
Although the food was delicious, the portion of my meal was very small, and I would have liked the option to order a regular size steak (6oz or 4oz would be a good portion size) rather than a few slices of steak on a lot of sauce. The idea of small portions is ok, but it seemed everything was an appetizer size. The decor of the restaurant is lively.

Moriarty's is a great pre-Citadel venue. The small-plate special was just right before the play. The wine list was outstanding. The waitstaff were attentive and made sure we made it to our show on time.

I would like to see a little more options on the lunch menu. The food and service was good but due to the limited selection would be difficult to bring friends, staff or other to this wonderful gem for lunch. I was suprised by the lack lustre lunch menu - great appetizer options but not a lot to select from for a lunch.

Moriarty's is always fantastic; service this time--for the first time--was really slow, inefficient and she added three things we didn't order to our bill... But it is still the place to go for good food, great wine list and exceptional ambience.

We loved the atmosphere, the food was amazing!!! Only down side was the service, our server was not very attentive and the only way to get another drink was to ask, and even then only got one of the two drinks we ordered.

All around fantastic find :)
The ambience was calming, decor nice and modern. The food was delicious ( especially the short rib poutine) and of course a great selection of wine makes for a wonderful evening out. Thanks for making our Wine Club night amazing.

Our experience was fanstic. The service was truly great and our server went above and beyond to accomodate my needs. The charcuterie selection was lovely and the crab cakes were much larger than I anticipated.
I was concerned about the service based on the reviews but this was not at all the case. Our server was attentive and offered great suggestions.

Excellent variety of food and we liked the small plates to share. I've dined here several times and have always had a great meal.

An excellent evening out -- our server was attentive and courteous, the food was really good (great selection of cheeses!), and the atmosphere was fabulous. Thank you for the wonderful evening.

I have to say that it's getting harder to find a restaurant that doesn't ponder to families. To go out and have some drinks and food in an adult atmosphere was great. Really appeals to the age 30-50 crowd. The restaurant offers modern decor with open booths for smaller groups and tables and chairs for larger groups. Extensive wine menu as well as some unique choices in beers. Really recommend the cheese and charcuterie platters. Service was a little slow, but I honestly feel that the vibe is meant to be relaxed and not rushed. A great place to take some close friends for a nice evening out.

Fantastic spot for a date night
The food was excellent - cheese & charcuterie plate (pick from a number of choices) was superb, mussels and wine were delicious, drinks and wine paired with the mussels were excellent. Service was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Two thumbs up. Would recommend this one highly.

Before the last ESO concert of the season.
My sister and I were impressed with the menu,creative happy hour choices and the drink list. Loved our booth from which to survey the restaurants comings and goings.
Best mussels I have had in a while.
Our server was lovely and very accommodating.
Hope the patio is open next time we are downtown.

The service, food and atmosphere were outstanding. I will not hesitate to return to Moriarty's.

I had a great meal at Moriarty's. It's not an extensive menu, but what they offer is very tasty. It's more of a lounge and appetizers location. Nice patio and great service (our server, Nikki, was awesome). I'll definitely go back!

Really nice decore that adds
Really nice decore that adds to the ambience. Lots of great drink options. Many of the menu items are fit to share which is nice when out for a romantic night out. The only let down was our server. She forgot items that we ordered and was a little slow to clear empty plates/ refresh drinks.

Great for a Night Out
A gal pal and I went here for a girls night out. We had wine and food and a great time! Our server was fantastic. She recomended wine and helped us pair up cheese and meats for our charcuterie board. We had a great time.

Been a few times now, great place for an afternoon snack and wine. Really love the atmosphere, and the service has always been top notch!

Great for lunch or a vibrant night out with friends.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server was extremely accommodating and an overall wonderful young woman. I loved the local options for beer and the extensive wine list. I enjoyed having a smaller menu for lunch, and still those options were hard to choose from. Lunch was delicious and I will be back!

Great tapas and wine tasting
Had a cheese and meat platter and the 4 of us each had a different selection of wine flights chosen by our waitress and the bartender. Great ambiance. Nice decor with good background music. Music was at perfect level which was great for conversation. Between the food, wine and company it made for a perfect evening.

The new menu was great. Service was also great. Will be going back for sure.

The Chef's leftover sandwich was scrumptious and something I can see myself craving in the near future. I love how they use local and very fresh ingredients; it shows in the quality of the food. I've never been disappointed by a meal at this bistro.
Their prices are very reasonable and I love the atmosphere. Unfortunately, the service was a little slow especially for the lunch hour. The server was very friendly but didn't really seem to recognize our need to leave in under and hour. From my previous experience, this was unusual. I've always had prompt and attentive service in the past.
I'll definitely be back, sooner than later.

We ended up here on the suggestion of Citadel Theater and had a great meal prior to the show.

Nice night out
I went there on Friday night with my boyfriend and we had a great time. The waitress was great - helpful with the menu and attentive to our needs. The selection on the menu was ok but what we got was very tasty and all homemade.

Great Pre or Post show restaurant
The location of this restaurant makes it a great before and after show dining experience. It has great ambience and the wine list is varied and affordable. There are interesting menu choices. We had two seafood entrees - the salmon, and the special which was red snapper. Both dishes were served with kale (one steamed, the other creamed) . The salmon was accompanied with mashed potatoes and the snapper with wild mushroom risotto. Both entrees were quite delicious although I found the risotto to be very garlicky.
I would recommend this restaurant to others and would also return myself

Great small Plates
Excellent resturant for drinks and Appies! The small plates are very good and nice for sharing. Great place to grab a drink afterwork.

Went for dinner before theatre
Went for dinner before theatre performance. Service was prompt, and server was very friendly and attentive., Obviously CFR was in full swing and server was dressed in cow girl gear. Food was delicious, especially the Salmon and the cheese plate that was served with pickled veggies made in house. Over all a great dining experience.

Good lunch spot downtown
Enjoyed lunch w/ 3 others. Interesting sandwich/soup/salad options; portions on the small side for the $$ but sufficient for a quick lunch. Great service, friendly and timely. Didn't have opportunity to sample wines, but list looks promising. Decor and ambiance are nice, generic "contemporary" look in a smallish space. Very small tables and booths make for uncomfortable dining for more than 2 ppl - lots of table crowding and knees colliding with 4 ppl at a booth. I suspect evenings/after-work it's less quiet and a bit livelier.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a great place for either a small meal and drink before a show or a larger meal for a nice evening. Highly recommend it!! Waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and the preparation / original of the dishes, wines and beers.
Will definitely be going again and suggest you do too.

Quiet downtown lunch
Want to get away from the crowds - try Moriarty's for lunch. Great ambiance close to the hustle and bustle of the stores and fast food. Excellent option to get away from it all. Menu not too large but offers good choices.
