Moshulu Ratings and Reviews
My most recent experience was great as usual when it comes to food and atmosphere . My server was also great. Waiting more then 30 min after my reservation time for a two top was extreamly frustrating , that's why I call ahead and make reservations in the first place . I would not have paid for a ten dollar Uber if I had an extra 30 min to walk. Then they gave me a no show on open table which makes me look bad. I was there and have the debit transaction over 100$ to show for itt. Still. A great brunch
Loved the ambiance - felt like I was on the Titanic. Had a great time reading a book while enjoying brunch overlooking the harbour. Went up to have a snoop around the deck as they were setting up for a wedding, just a beautiful venue! Food was delicious. Dylan was an excellent waiter, very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend as a fun brunch to have in Philly :)
Go early though - it was getting very busy by 11.30am when I was leaving.
This was my third visit. As before, the restaurant was beautiful. Organized stations, clean and inviting. The food was excellent. Our table started with the roasted red beet salad and short rib dumplings. Entrees were the crab cake, French dip and the burger. Again all excellent. For desert we all had the Meyer Lemon Creme Brulee. Amazing. Wanted more.
We did arrive early before the dinner seating, so we had to wait a little. Hostess was very pleasent. Our server was very good. Attentive, but not annoying. Will definitely go back.
Really neat place to eat... we were sat on the inside so not really a view to die for.
Drinks were great.:. I would stay away from the spicy peach, it was not great, but the Maybellene smash was off the charts great. The wedge salad was big enough for 2 people to share, the blue cheese was amazing, and I don't really like blue cheese, so kudos! Tuna crab roll was good. The 10 oz burger OMG, might just be worth the price of it! Thai Steak and noodle salad was good, French dip was good, I wish I liked seafood bc the summer roll looked amazing. The desserts were good.. took a while to get those. The sundae for 2 in my world could be a Sundae for 1.
Service itself was okay. I think our servers name was George. He was very basic, did the proper things a server is suppose to do, I didn't like I had to drink everyone else's water at the table though bc my glass was empty. Getting the check was a bit difficult as well. I wouldn't come back for his service
However, I would absolutely come back.. I was impressed with the food and the drinks. I want to experience the deck outside and the views more next time, And walk around and check out the ship
Went there to enjoy the last meal if the summer before our kids head off to college. This place had everything - from an intriguing historical background to perfectly comfortable seating to suit any mood to outstanding food. The wait staff was exceptional and paid attention to detail - I waitered in college in a five star restaurant and knew a lot of subtleties of serving and was quite pleased to see them mastered here. Overall we couldn't have picked a more perfect or memorable spot to cap off our summer.
It was my boyfriends and I one year anniversary so we decided to go out some place nice for lunch.We we're overall disappointed with the food and service. We both ordered burgers which took over about an hour to get.My boyfriends bottom bun on the burger broke in half as he picked it up so everything like fell apart.Also our waiter only came to take our order and give us our check he didn't check up on us we actually saw him on his phone. Very overrated and overpriced.
Musty odor is overwhelming + noisy acoustics.
Called ahead to arrange for husband's birthday. Was assured a card and chocolate dessert would be available as a surprise. Checked with hostess upon arrival and was told it was arranged. Asked server twice and she said, "I will see what I can do"! This was after hostess told me the server was notified.
Server brought tiny scoop of mango sorbet and no card.
Hostess did nothing when I told her about the situation.
A tiny scoop of sorbet is pitiful and demonstrates their service.
Went to Mid-Town cafe and enjoyed a delicious slice of chocolate cakes served with a smile.
i took my family here our 20th anniversary. its the end of august so we decided to sit outside at the deck. appertizers was great but very small portion for $18 , my rib-eye steak was so dry. not worth it to pay $58 for it. im not sure why they donot serve bread with butter for dinner. maybe because we sit in the deck. not dining area. also i wasnot impress when they serve our alcohol in plastic cup.
Been awhile since we've dined here. Pretty much what we remembered. We were first seated at this table by the river view. Would have been great except the slope of the boat made the seating funky. We were promptly moved to a huge booth which made us feel a bit guilty but since it was early, we dug in, stretched out and ordered our drinks. My wife judges her cocktail on how long it takes her to finish. More alcohol, lasts longer. Well she gulped down the 1st. I ordered a specialty drink which I didn't particularly care for. My wife's 2nd drink was better and I settled for a glass of white which I enjoyed. We ordered a beet salad which was good, a lamb slider was great and the seafood plateau, which consisted of fresh seafood and assorted sushi rolls. We saved room for dessert, ordered 2 and took one home. Not a bad meal but probably won't return for awhile. We'll leave it for the tourists.
Took friends out to try restaurant week for the first time and we all left still hungry. The portions were pretty small besides the cake. Our waiter was super nice but other than that the lighting sucked and felt like it was way too bright . I'm not in a hurry to go back here at all.
The service was absolutely horrendous. I'm super laid back but from the moment we got there to the moment we left we were confronted by the worst service I've ever experienced in all of my life. It is nothing more than a tourist trap used to scan people out of their money. This is not a good representation of Philadelphia food.
Heard the hype about Moshulu for years thought I would give it a try during restaurant week. Awlful service. The food was good and waterfront view was nice but can't get over how terrible the service was. Had one drink before dinner and as never asked if we wanted another. Had to get the hostess to find my server to get the check. Restaurant week is supposed to give you an experience that would make you return. Not so much.
My wife & I were there for our first year anniversary. The staff was aware and treated us with the utmost courtesy. The manager stopped at our table to greet us. Overall it was a great foodie experience. When we received our check they took off the price of our drinks. Thank you all for an unforgettable evening.
My date and I sat on the deck for brunch, it was such a beautiful day… And the server Tiffany was incredibly helpful and patient. We would absolutely come back again and again and again. There was a manager who was wearing a cream and light blue dress with short hair that stoped by a few times to check on us. She seemed so interested in how happy the guests were. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
The ambiance was great, our waiter was also fantastic. The food overall was just okay, and certainly not worth the prices. I ordered my steak medium, however it came out rare. I sent it back but was not overall satisfied, but since my date was half-way through her meal I pushed through and ate it. The waiter did give me a lobster bisque soup for my inconvenience.
The restaurant is on a 100 year-old ship. The dining room is beatiful. Two- and four-top tables line the windows, and the booths are configured so that every seat has a view. One row of tables face the river and the other faces the pier: I would recommend facing the river.
If the weather is nice, avoid days when there is a function, such as a wedding, because the restaurant closes the deck with only a few hours notice. This was disappointing. I probably would have change my reservation to a different night.
The food was very good, but not great. It is a restaurant that is more about the view and quiet setting than the cuisine.
The service was polite, but not polished. The busboys will remove plates before the last person at the table is finished with a course. This makes slower eaters fell awkward, and left me wondering if there was too much emphasis on turning the table instead of making my guests feel welcome.
I am torn on the question about recommending Moshulu. The restaurant is great for a romantic dinner for two. It would become less accommodating as the size of the party increases. If you are a foodie, you will leave disappointed, it is appropriate for those wanting an experience, albeit one that felt a bit rushed.
I came here for my birthday dinner with my family on a Saturday night, they drove 2 hours just for dinner so I was hoping it would be worth their drive, Moshulu did not disappoint! This was the first time any of us had been to Moshulu. I made a reservation for 3 and, unknown to me until the last minute, had an additional surprise guest joining us for dinner. When we called Moshulu on our way over they graciously accomodated the change in plans. We were seated exactly at the time of our reservation.
The crab cake was amazing. Barely any "filler", just crab meat, outstanding.
The best part was their exceptional service, particularly our waitor Dillon. He was professional, attentive (just the right amount), knowledgeable, and funny! A good waitor/waitress can really make or break your experience, Dillon made it spectacular!
The food was fine but the service was awful. We had a reservation for 7:30pm, we weren't seated until 8pm. It took forever for everything to come out, they brought out our dessert before our entrees and then we still had to wait about a half hour in between our apps and our entrees. It was bizarre.
I had to call over the waitress to take the remainder of the order. By the time she put in the order, the entrees for the first few ordered had come out along with the appetizers. I was Not happy with the service at all.
The calamari was soggy and lacked flavor. The salmon dish was too sweet. The pasta looked like somebody just threw things into the plate. There is lack of taste and presentation. Over priced and not worth it in terms of food and service. They even forgot to pack the third dessert.
Only great for going to the top deck for sips.
