Moe's Cantina Wrigleyville Ratings and Reviews
I made this 10/22 back in August. I called several times to confirm my reservation but no one answered and the voicemail was not set up. I showed up early and was informed that Moe's is no longer on Open Table. I showed the manager the reservation and he repeated that Moe's is not on Open Table. I told him I understood Moe's is not now on Open Table but that I made the reservation 2 months ago and never received a cancellation email or phone call. In fact, I received a confirmation email from Open Table on 10/21. The manager said there's nothing he can do for me.
We arrived late due to traffic! they did manage to find us a booth. The waitstaff was really running and we placed our order for drinks and food as soon as someone stopped at out booth. It was super noisy - a lot of TVs with SPORTs showing. We almost had to body slam a waitstaff to get our check. We were in and out in 40 minutes though. enjoyed the shrimp skewers!
I was very pleased with Moe's in that they were very accommodating to my party of four. Driving here from Joliet to watch the Hawks, traffic was horrendous, it took us 2 hours to get to Chicago. It was game two of the Stanley Cup so they were very busy...I called to let them know we would be late, about 30 minutes) and they help my reservation. While there we had a great time. The food was excellent as were the drinks. We tried almost every skewer, it would be difficult to pick my favorite as they were all delicious.
The service was great(Katie), very friendly and not easy that night. This was my second visit here, both times were great.
The restaurant was understaffed and our waitress was hardly visible. The food is served tapas style, but after 10 minutes of everyone at our table having food except one person, we were finally able to flag down someone to ask about the last order. It took at least another 15 minutes to get the final plate. I understand that it is tapas style, but waiting 25 minutes (after everyone else has their food) for the final plate to be served is not acceptable. And, the food was sub-par...who serves tortilla chips without salsa? The restaurant did comp the overlooked meal, which was appreciated.
first, the menu on their website is completely different than what they have. the guacamole was great, the salsa was the worst I ever had, the quesadillas with "steak" was like little hard to chew turds, and the chicken in the flautas was stringy and inedible. don't waste yourtime and/or money on this place!
We met at Moe's as a group of friends looking to have dinner ad drinks before heading to a show later that night. The music was so loud we couldn't hear our waitress or better yet the person sitting across from you. I would not suggest going here if you are wanting to actually talk to the people you are with.
