    We chose this restaurant due to the great photos online. We got there at 9 and our table was not ready yet we had a reservation. While waiting we decided to buy alcohol. I kid you not, for that one hour we tried but the bar tenders never bothered to look our way. Finally we got seated. The servers were great! Very great. The managers too would pop in and check on us. The bad experience we had at the check in from the rude staff and the bar tenders who were too busy, was made better by the servers. They made us feel better. Now, when it was time to leave, we wanted to use the bathroom. There was a private event upstairs and the line was so long. We attempted to use the bathroom downstairs but we were rudely told it’s for staff only. Only when I vividly became upset coz I almost peed on myself is when they let us use it. After the ladies changed and all, they had the audacity to say, this one too is free You can use it, yet before, we couldn’t use it. What kind of a policy is this? Get more bathrooms or accommodate people when you have more guests. Never going back there.

    Food was delicious from appetizers to entrees. Especially the sushi special. The vegetable lasagna was the best I have ever tasted. The sauce was delicious. My son and husband both had the swordfish which they both loved. The waitress Tia was excellent so attentive, informative and so friendly. The entire dinner was a wonderful experience We will definitely be back. Did not disappoint!

    Make yourself a favor and go somewhere else. They took 45 minutes to bring the food out. A sea bass dish was over cooked with a corner of the dish charred. An octopus appetizer had tons of veggies but barely any octopus. A burger was made up of frozen patties. All of these low quality food at the tune of $70 per person

    Our 6:00 Table was Not ready at the time we reserved it !!! Our table service took very long . The food was terrible. I had the Lobster Bisque once before here and this time the serving was NOT good I did not get a sizeable portion for the $14.00 cost and it it tasted flat. It was Just Lobster Bisque !!! We had a good time at the Moshulu once before BUT this time was terrible we will NOT return nor recommend. BAD

    I had brunch with my daughter and granddaughter. We had drinks that were delicious. For the appetizer we had the bread and whipped ricotta. It was very good. I got the crab bisque that was also very good. My daughter got the cheesesteak omelette which tasted good but was a little weird combination. Granddaughter had the French toast that seemed unnecessarily complicated. She didn’t seem to like it and we took most home. The worst thing was the very uncomfortable seating. We were on metal high bar stools at a small high table. This was complicated by the deck being slightly angled. It was hard to sit and enjoy the meal. Lastly it was pretty expensive. I realize it’s basically a tourist destination and we are locals but it was high. To add insult to injury we paid $20 to park. I usually just go here for drinks.

    We sat at 6:30, didn't get greeted until 7, just got our waters at 7:10, and finally received our entrees at 7:30. We had to get up to tell the manager that no one had come to our tables for us to finally get cups of water. Great atmosphere good views but certainly not the best first impression.

    The view outside was great, the service was very good, our server was friendly and courteous. The food was "all right" at best. It is very over-priced, so you are paying for the cool factor of having a meal on an old large-mast ship and the history of the ship.

    You go to Moshulu for the atmosphere and experience. The food is not good and is terribly overpriced. The service was very good. It's not the servers fault the food is mediocre. Unfortunately, they were preparing for a late night event and was not hesitating to get us out of the area do they can prep for the party. There was a lot of loud banging to prep. If I go back again, it will be just for a cocktail.

    Disappointed! Was looking forward to trying someplace new. Wait staff was every nice. Unfortunately, that’s the only good thing about our dinner. When you have upscale prices, you expect upscale food. My steak was over cooked, not inedible, but for the price I should have gotten it how I ordered it. No one came by to check to make sure it was cooked properly.( separate waiter and food runner). My husband had the swordfish. Very dry, also over cooked. He did not finish his meal. Coffee was fine but cool. Needless to say, we will not be back.

    Overall we had a great time, it was not our first visit. I ordered Swordfish, the vegetable that came with it was bitter, I was not able to eat it. It was my anniversary, last minute( Friday afternoon) they called and told me that we couldn’t sit outside. Our server was great and we sat on time.

    The food: good but unremarkable. The atmosphere: enjoyable, although I asked to be seated indoors when I made the reservation and they sat us on the deck. The service: atrocious! Perhaps the worst service I've ever encountered at a "so called" fine dining establishment. There was a server's error in every course. The prices: severely inflated considering the (lack of) sophistication in the dishes and a staff that seems to be more suited for TGI Friday than an "upscale" restaurant.

    My husband and I came here to eat before taking the ferry over to see a concert at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion. Parking was right in front of the ship. It was $20. Great parking no issues. Food was great. I highly recommend the spicy tuna rice cakes and Korean chicken appetizers. I had the flat iron dinner special which was very good. My husband had the crab cake which looked amazing. The service was great as well! This place is amazing! Bathrooms were clean and very cute. There was an event going on on to outside on the deck. There are so many different layers to this place. You can have a drink at the bar or you can have an intimate romantic dinner. There was also a beautiful long table for big parties too.

    I had the best Sea Bass, tender, moist and very flavorful. It was served tier braised bot chow and other vegetables. The only thing off about the serving was the kimchi rice. It was very spicy and I felt it overpowered the fish. My husband had the del Monaco steak, cooked perfectly and served with blue cheese. Our server was friendly and attentive.

    Great atmosphere, good service, however they have a house made veggie burger that I ordered. The waitress should have said that it’s a very large burger and it’s very, very mushy. There was no consistency to the burger, it was like taking black beans, smashing them then grilling. I was disappointed. But I will visit again, just not order the veggie burger.
