Our annual Anniversary dinner, we were married there 4 years ago. Food and service was tremendous as usual. One of our favorite places to have dinner in the winter and hang out on the deck in the summer.

The swordfish with braised beef was outstanding, the waiter was friendly and very good. My only issue was the extremely loud and obnoxious table of young ladies doing more drinking than eating. Their behavior was more suited to a low class restaurant and interfered with my enjoyment of the evening.

Went there for my 10th wedding anniversary based on a recommendation from a friend.
Loved the atmosphere, service, oysters, wine list. I ordered the special which was gnocchi in a cream sauce with chunks of veal. Kinda weird dish, my husband had steak Oscar style and loved it,

I think it was my entree choice.
Clearly the food is delicious and nicely prepared and this is a popular place.

The waiter was overworked and even though we had 1 .5 hours until the fireworks started, the 3 course meal could not be done in that time. They charged my credit card $250.00 to hold the reservation and then charged us again when the bill came. They were unable to credit the card so each guest owed me money. Glad for the experience but would not go back again. The food was not good except for the small dessert.

Food was horrible. Seriously overpriced and the salad was almost entirely red cabbage. Never again. So sad to see it go so far downhill, used to be a favorite spot.

It was a nice place to be especially during this epidemic time. There’s hardly anybody where we were.

I rated the service as 5 because the waitress & staff were nice. However, service was a little bit slow. We just thought maybe because of the pandemic, there are only a few servers. That’s understandable.

We love the food. It was a first time to eat there for a couple of friends & they love it.

The ambiance was lovely. The food was terrible because my steak had more gristle than meat. My shrimp were not firm nor cooked. They were served to me in a clump and they were slimy and raw! That was supposed to be jumbo shrimp cocktail! The menu consisted of limited choices that were unappealing! For $200.00 a couple, there was no tablecloth, no complimentary appetizer, no baked bread. The fixed menu reminded me of the menu in the “MY COUSIN VINNY “, movie! My husband ordered a martini and it was not supposed to have vermouth in it, however it did. I will not return to the Moshulu!

We went out for dinner on Christmas Eve. They had set price menu which was a bit overpriced. My sea bass was cooked with the skin on which I do not find edible so I had to take it off and then scrape off a bunch of grey fatty matter that was underneath it and looked very unappetizing. All the seasoning was cooked into a skin so fish itself came out tasting very bland and also pretty tough. Service wise no complaints- our server was very pleasant and attentive.

Been going to Moshulu since 2014. Sadly this last time food was completely different from what I know. I order the sword fish surf and turf and the fish was dry and over cooked to the point of being hard around the edges, the meat wasn’t so tender as I remember, I known this place for their excellence in all aspects, having to pay $38 for a tasty and well prepared dish doesn’t hurt but for a dish like last night, it leaves a bitter taste. I’ll try it once again before I gave up on it.

Server was exceptional and the manager was very accommodating offering an alternative meal to the crab cakes which my wife did not like (too much filling). The ambiance was nice but the juice is just not worth the squeeze. Too may better options out there!

Great time! Next time I will call directly for reservation. This is the 2nd time we have used Open Table and they claim no available tables between 5 and 7. There were plenty of tables and we did not need to have dinner at 4pm!
