The ambiance is indescribable, it’s really spectacular. The waiter was probably the best waiter I’ve ever had, he was able to predict our needs and was extremely welcoming and never pressured us to leave. We stayed for about three hours and never felt like we were rushed at any point. The bottomless mimosas are probably the best deal in the city. We had a blast!! I wish I could go every Sunday.

One of the best meals I've ever had and the staff did everything they could to make my wife and I feel special for our anniversary. Highly recommended for special occasions or a fancy date night.

Brunch at Moshulu could not have been better! We had the best time, the food was amazing, but the best part about the whole thing was our waiter Gary!! He was super attentive, very happy, and just made the whole experience amazing for us, if you manage to sit in his section you will be very very lucky! The appetizers were phenomenal (can't go wrong with the salmon on crispy rice) and the burgers and benedicts were just as great. If you want a great experience, you have to go here!!

There was not much to choose from. My husband ordered the surf and turf and the fish was extremely salty and there was absolutely NO turf.
Not happy with the food.
I did not like the Paella I ordered. There was only ONE shrimp in there. Was not worth my money.

Beautiful presentations, excellent service, and fantastic meals. My family tried Moshulu for my father's birthday and it was truly a wonderful experience. The staff and dinner were wonderful. I would highly recommend trying this restaurant for what feels like a Gatsby-style 'get away'. Very well done! We will be back!

We had such a wonderful brunch at the Moshulu. There were 9 of us celebrating a girls weekend and we had the best time. From our service (best waiter ever Gary!), the delicious food, and amazing drinks. Highly recommend the crab cakes egg Benedict and the cheese board! Also, highly recommend requesting Gary as your waiter, he was the absolute best.

Delicious Crab Cake Benedict! We were happy to see they had bottomless for brunch -- however, our server barely checked back to refill our mimosas after paying $18.00. Overall, the food was fantastic and love getting away from the city and enjoy being on the water.

First time here , thought the ambiance was great. Had reservations for 6pm but arrived early and they were able to seat us right away. Tried to order the duck wontons as an appetizer but they were sold out already , got the octopus instead , flavor was great but it was extremely chewy (even for octopus) couldn’t chew it and had to spit it out. While waiting for dinner to be served one couple window side were holding a mini photo shoot table side and one of them fully flashed her boobs, thought it was odd that it went unaddressed by the staff because they were all pretty attentive. Dinner was lack luster in my opinion , I ordered the swordfish and beef short rib surf and turf. Sauce was salty, and the swordfish was reminiscent of meow mix seafood delight (tasted like that smells). Cocktails were great. Bathroom was surprisingly unkept , the waste bin was overflowing with napkins and they were starting to pile on the floor. Overall I considered it to be mediocre , if I was to go again it would most likely be for cocktails on the deck outside (weather permitting)

It was my first time at Moshulu for brunch I took a friend for her birthday.The food and drinks were awesome. It was a great experience ! Our server name was Ryan he was awesome. He was very attentive and did not rush us one little bit which was great for me and my girlfriend to sit and talk have some cocktails and not be rushed. I will definitely come back again.

Food was adequate. Service friendly and efficient. Meal felt rushed since main course came to the table before we were finished with the appetizers. Chicken was dry. Desert was disappointing. Dessert described as chocolate cake was not chocolate at all but more a spice cake. Don’t plan on going back.

Our waitress keirra was extremely friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and respectful. The remodel they did since we were there last year was a nice surprise and made it even more welcoming. Food was amazing, I even asked for a drink that was not on the menu and they were able to do it. I will definitely be back next year, this has become a tradition for me and my husband. And we live 3 1/2 hours away it’s definitely worth the drive.

Waitress took forever to service when she finally did the main course came with the hair on the plate which was changed after that the desert took at least 30 minutes to get to our table and when I asked for a coffee she rolled her eyes

The ambiance was amazing, but the food wasn’t worth the money. Spent over $300 on a set menu because of Valentines, and the food was average to say the least.

I’ll start by saying I’ve been here before and it has always been a positive experience. This time was an 8:45pm reservation on Valentine’s Day! I’m sure the day had everything to do with this 1 negative experience. The menu seemed lacking for a nearly $100 per person price fix... and we found a few dishes bland, under seasoned, and even cold. That being said there were also some very impressive bites hidden in the overall “flat” meal. The wait staff seemed utterly overwhelmed and on the whole much to inexperienced to handle this night’s service. We waited about 15 minutes at the bar for our table to be ready but didn’t get a drink until we were being seated. There were 2 bartenders... a woman who seemed to be a new hire was in charge making drinks for the service bar but was also forced to serve patrons at the bar because the other bar tender was too busy flirting with a group of girls for the entire 15 minutes and blatantly could careless how many people he was ignoring. Again I’ve been before and never had a bad thing to say until tonight... so I’m giving this establishment the benefit of the doubt and saying it was probably a one night fluke of a disaster. Nonetheless it is unfortunate that so many may have shared the same chaotic, disjointed experience as us on Valentine’s Day.

Went for Valentines Day. The food quality and taste was great but poor service made it not worth the price. Wouldn’t recommend the Valentines Day special.
