Moxie’s is Located in Toronto's Financial District, next to the St. Andrew Metro Station. Within walking distance from the Princess of Wales and Royal Alexandra Theatres and Roy Thomson Hall. A short distance to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and the famous Royal York Hotel.

No matter the occasion, whether it's a business luncheon, a dinner date, or late night drinks with friends, Moxie's offers something for everyone.
Moxie’s features daily drink specials - enjoy them while dining on our outdoor patio!
Expensive as heck (although typical for touristy downtown TO) and the food was just decent. Restaurant atmosphere itself is typical generic "casual dining".
Service from Ben was excellent, efficient and friendly!
Food was very tasty.
Cons: the glasses need to be cleaned more thoroughly. All of the glasses we received had lip marks on them on the rims.
Staff was great. The food is always great however the Ribs were a bit tough to my liking, they needed to be cooked a bit more as the were very chewy. My daughter had the Salmon and it was excellent!
Delicious food but way too loud.
Service was very friendly but also very slow. Otherwise a very good dinner for pre-theatre.
Fantastic location, great staff, amazing food! Highly recommended
Food is good quality. Service is very good. Prices are high related to quality of food. Drink prices are high. TOO NOISY!!!! Bring Bose noise cancelling headphones. This establishment is noisy on purpose so that you eat quickly and get out. A table turning restaurant. Nothing particularly special about this place. A dime a dozen in Toronto.
Great service by Emily and delicious food, but our soups and onion rings were cold. Our orders did come out correctly after making a few changes.
Birthday lunch - amazing staff, very accommodating and helpful. Surprised me with a fantastic dessert based on preferences. One thing - it took long to pay because it was very busy and the servers were stretched.
Had the mango chicken. Highly recommended.
Our server was very pleasant and helpful.
Server did his job. Upsold the wine and an extra for the meal. Trainee has a ways to go but was pleasant enough. Steak meal tasted delicious although wasn't hot. Had a show to get to so didn't say anything. Place was very loud making it hard to talk. Still, all in all was a good time and good meal. We would go back.
Our server was fantastic, food was tasty as usual. Overall great experience
Good food and service. Comfortable setting. But the noise can be deafening. Unfortunately we were seated at the booth closest to the bar area. For us four “old guys” that meant shouting at each other for most of the night.
The Salmon and Avocado Cobb was a disappointment.
You should describe it better, ie. it is not a salad but some conglomeration of ingredients by which the chef must think is trendy.
Our server was excellent, prompt, courteous & kind.
Convenient location, great service, lively atmosphere. Nice place to enjoy a meal with friends.
It was great
Good location prior to a Leafs game.......food and service was as expected.
We enjoyed our recent dining experience. The customer service was excellent and the atmosphere was welcoming and fun. My only criticism is the noise level. The music volume was quite loud.
Bit pricey but you are right downtown. Noise level was right up there but somehow we could still speak at the table
Birthday dinner. Our server was excellent and very attentive. Awesome atmosphere
The room was quite noisy - music could have been turned down a bit.
Service was excellent!
Food and selection very good, but we sat and waited over 30 minutes to get coffee and tea and were only served after we told the server that we had to leave soon.
This is the kind of place that you would go to if nothing else was open. Food was very poor and overpriced. Zero decor and even though our server was pleasant and did her best, overall inattentive service. Not recommended.
Soup of the day well done. Beef dip with pretzel bun, I would order again.
And of course our waiter, Sean provided really good service!
Everything was great food-wise and it was an amazing looking restaurant! The decor and ambience was top-notch. It was a little loud for our liking as we really had to speak up to hear each other, and the waiter did not check on us nearly enough. But overall a great stay and more importantly the food was 10/10. We would definitely come back.
Steak was amazing, Thomas our server was perfect!
Zack was our server and he was absolutely amazing! Polite, funny, and constantly went the extra mile for us while we were there. We would definitely go back just for him!
I have never been disappointed with either the food or the service in all of my visits to Moxie's.
I have brought my work team here a number of times for team building. We have always enjoyed the game od and service. With the team having vegetarians as well they enjoy the selection and for the od available as well.
Went with a reservation for lunch.. celebrating my birthday with my daughter and in town to see Ellen.. ordered two bellinis when we sat down ... then food to follow.. food came so did water.. after 80min of being told the drinks were coming out soon we cancelled the drink order.. and paid just for our food.. not really the lunch or celebration we had planned.. barely saw our waiter as well.. probably won’t go back. They were very understaffed and it showed.. should have gone elsewhwre
Great experience. Had 2 people from our party from the UK and they were very impressed. They mentioned particularly the presentation and the portion size of the food. Glad we chose your restaurant.
We ordered the 6oz filet mignon and the 16 oz rib eye. Neither were properly cooked. The ribeye looked and felt like it was placed on only a warm grill to cook. Certainly not prepared properly. The ‘seasonal vegetables’ were three pieces of broccoli. For $48 I expected more. Service was nice, but slow. Waited 20 minutes plus for our plates to be cleared. Understandable if it was busy but only 1/3 of the restaurant was full.
Half price bottles of wine was the only saviour.
If you’re looking for a steak dinner, avoid Moxies.
A clean and open environment with lots of room to move around. Loved the fact that we could hear each other...often a challenge with people competing with "background" music. The food was perfect, and the service really on top of our time constraints.
I regret not remembering our server’s name. He was amazing!! Very professional, helpful and knowledgeable! 5 stars for him!!!
The meat is amazing!!! French fries were a little too over cooked .
The food was good but it wasn't hot. The noise level was quite high. I had reservations and they seated me at a high table, fortunately they had a cancellation so my friend arranged for us to be moved to another table.
Best blackened chicken burger ever . Brought our a lava brownie for my gf birthday super sweet !
