I made an 8:15 dinner reservation online for a table for 2. Unfortunately we were running 15 minutes late, so I called half an hour before our reservation to make sure that this was okay. The woman I spoke to assured me that arriving at 8:30 was fine. When we arrive at 8:32 the hostess informed us that their kitchen closes promptly at 8:15 and that they would not serve us. It told her that I called and that they said it was okay that we were a few minutes late, she then says, "Who is they?" and told us to go eat at the restaurant next door. We were attending the Great Gatsby party on the Musholu that evening so it would nice to have had dinner there but we were rudely turned away. We did attend the party after we ate at a different restaurant and had a nice time but other than that the service was disappointing.

My last visit to the Moshulu was over 20 years ago. The food is still as remarkable as it was then. Pleasant to the senses and ultimately delightful. However, this visit I can not say enough about the staff. From the hostess to the bus person, I felt my party and I mattered. The waiter knew exactly what to recommend when I was in doubt, and it was perfect. The Moshulu was again, another wonderful dining experience.

Besides the fact that the place is very pretty and unique, our waiter (Gary Goldstein) made the brunch 3000% better. I highly recommend it, and look for Gary when you go.

We went there for Sunday brunch to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The bottomless mimosas were fantastic. Our server, Marcelino, never let our glasses go empty. The food was delicious. We had so much fun we plan to make it a monthly thing.

Everything we ate tonight was absolutely delicious. We got the octopus as a starter, jumbo lump crab cake with truffle fries, filet mignon with Mac & cheese and for dessert the sundae for two! Even the butter that came with the bread was really good. Overall the service and food was great, i didn’t think it was too overpriced. Will be back again!

THIS IS THE BEST RESTAURANT I'VE EVER BEEN TO, AND IT'S ON A STEEL TALLSHIP! Went for Sunday brunch for my birthday. The staff was phenomenal, they even gave me a free dessert and a handwritten card! Bottomless bloodys and mimosas for a very reasonable price! The food is a bit pricey but DELICIOUS AND SO WORTH IT. Joey was our waiter and he was extremely attentive and charming! I cannot wait to go back, I have nothing but amazing things to say about Moshulu!

Very nice place had to wait for a table for a few minutes. Server was very good. Steak was a little over cooked for my liking but didn’t want to send back seeing how we had to wait almost an hour for our food after we ordered. Definitely would go back though

Parking is a bit steep but what do you expect for inner city dining. What an amazing venue! A classic tall ship turned into a fine dining restaurant. Beautiful interior. We were a bit early, so we headed to the bar which was crowded (as expected on Valentine's Weekend). The one thing I had to get used to was the slope of the floor, almost like a crown. There was this tree that made seating at the one bar stool difficult. Our table was ready and off we went. Beautiful table with a window. We were greeted quite quickly by our server, Joey. We were trying to take a selfie, but he assisted with the picture taking. We ordered some drinks and perused the menu. We decided on the calamari and the oysters. Both were outstanding. For entrees she got the crabcake (a bit steep in price but outstandingly good - all meat - no filler). It was served with some fingerling potatoes and, I believe asparagus. All was very good. I went with the filet, med rare. Very good! It was served also with the potatoes and carrots. Dessert was creme brulee that had a great presentation and a warm almond cake which she said was outstanding. Our server was informed and attentive without making us feel rushed. He even gave some suggestions to go afterwards for a nightcap. Overall an outstanding experience and one that I would highly recommend.

The food was delicious. Extremely creative with flavors abound. I had the Pan Seared Bronzino. A tender flakey fish very tantalizing to the pallet. I also had the cauliflower soup. Phenomenal dish. The Sorbet for dessert is not to be compared to any other. The service is excellent, friendly and attentive.
