Went for my birthday and the food was delicious. My service not so much. Took over 20 min to get our drinks, over 30 min for appetizers and another 30 for entree (without silverware had to ask). Empty plates were left in front of us forever and we gave up on the dessert menu that we asked for 15min before. Even had to wait on the check and ask for a pen to sign. Last but not least, there were plants all in our face and table which brought on the spiders and spotted lantern flies. The jazz was awesome and the food was awesome. Folks were wearing shorts and a kid was running around. This wasn't the romantic dinner we were hoping for, but the food was great once we got it.

Food was amazing… service was impressive there was a private party on the Deck so the boat was pretty full. I would like to go back when it’s less busy. I drove from New Jersey and hit traffic when we called the front desk there was no answer 3x and when we finally reached someone to explain we were in traffic they advised they would need to give our table away if We were not there 15 min after my reservation which I understandable but was very frustrating .. who wants to drive an hour to be turned away ? .. luckily when we arrived they still seated us and gave us a great waiter who kept us very entertained. The NY strip was perfect… I like my steak medium well and it was perfectly burgundy

The waiter and ambience was amazing, the food was poorly made, and not worth the price at all. Crab cakes were good, but the can pasta sauce was not needed and it was cold.

Food came out barely warm which was unfortunate but everything did taste good. Caesar salad was great. Service was just a little slow eating for silverware. Usually a great experience.

Went to the restaurant and was told by the hostess no reservations were available for outdoors all day. When we were asking what the indoor seating was she walk away to ask someone why they were going upstairs. We left the restaurant. Checked Opened Table and made reservations for outdoor seating within minute. Thanks Open Table.

I took my husband there for his birthday & put that in the reservation notes as well. I also have a shellfish allergy and my husband does not. Also noted in the reservation. The server we had, Donna, was absolutely amazing. Was recommending everything and we got every single thing the recommended and when I told her the one thing I wanted she advised against it due to the shellfish allergy etc and I thanked her for that. She talked to us like we knew her for years which made us both feel at home. When dinner was over she brought out a complimentary “happy birthday” dessert and my husband appreciated it. We loved her personality so much we ended up friend requesting her on Facebook and will ABSOLUTELY be back solely because of her (and the food). All around amazing experience! Thank you!

Party of two, outdoor seating because carpets were being cleaned indoors. The view and comfort level of sitting outside was great. Highly recommend sitting outdoors if possible.
Started with half dozen oysters (best part of the meal! Fresh, perfectly shucked). Mains: New York strip (overcooked, no flavor), crispy skin verlasso salmon (NO crispy skin at all - not sure where that went wrong. Just OK seasoning, texture was a little squishy. Best part was the sides - curried quinoa, cucumbers, and feta).
Overall a lackluster meal.
The worst part was the service. We were seated at 6:30pm and NO ONE attended us until 7:07 when my husband went to find a server. They did apologize but service continued to be super slow and not on par with the number of patrons.
Definitely will NOT be returning here, unfortunately. Despite the lovely seating, the service and food wasn't up to standards.

I had a great anniversary. They were so sweet and nice. The place is beautiful, however the food was average. It wasn't as amazing as I expected, however it was not terrible. The dessert was divine, the views and service were incredible. Overall great night and drinks were fabulous, however they were out of 3 drinks in the beginning of the night.

Best truffle fries on earth, seriously. Both casual food and fancy entrees were delicious. Highly polished managers and greeters and downright charming staff. Ask for a waterside table but outside all views are great.

I had my children with me ages 8, 11, and 14. They very much loved the experience. They ordered appetizers for dinner and were very happy. The staff on the ship were very helpful and accommodating to the children. We went topside to enjoy the view after dinner.

The atmosphere was good but the food was average. For the price of the food it was not enough to full anyone up. Same goes with the appetizer. To be honest to get a better value for your money I would go next door to the Chart House. It’s fun to grab a drink and watch the scenery on the boat with friends and family but not eat there for a five star course meal for the price.

It’s been a while since I have eaten at Moshulu and I don’t think I will be back. The atmosphere is very nice, the drinks were good, along with the appetizers. The cons: our waiter didn’t introduce himself and we at first thought he was someone coming to fill our water. Having gone to many restaurants especially one of this caliber we are used to an introduction. Now that wouldn’t cause us to not come back, it was the entree’s. The entree’s were both sent back. This is the only time both my husband and I have had to send our entrees back anywhere. He got the salmon special and it wasn’t cooked all the way. I got the swordfish and shrimp which was overly saturated with sauce. On top of that I got maybe three small shrimp that were sliced in half. And the temperature of the swordfish was luke warm. The first time I had swordfish was here so I was extremely disappointed. The quality of the food has gone down and it’s sad to say I will not be back. I would like to note the manager was very nice and accommodating.

Overall this was another positive experience.

The appetizer was good (Peruvian scallops), and the truffle fries were phenomenal. I got the impression, by the perfectly round burgers, that they were frozen, which is why they didn’t get five stars.

The sound level got higher as the night went on, and as picky as it sounds, even my 14 year old daughter said she’d rather be listening to music that was more 1920’s, 30’s, 40’s - to go along with the feel of the ship - compared to the tops music of today that was playing.

Overall everything was fine and the food was good. Our waiter was amazing and I asked him to pick my dessert for me :)
