Chose the Moshulu for my birthday and was beyond my expectations to the setting and the incredible food
Our first time dining on the Moshulu - a birthday celebration. I can truly give the highest ratings on everything from the food, to the atmosphere, to the service - all were A++. Our waiter was extrememly eloquent and accomodating - two glasses of special birthday champagne were given to us at no cost, as well as a delicious appetizer (compliments of the chef). We had the legendary lobster bisque as well as a cheese plate to start - delicious. For our main entrees, we did the salmon and mahi mahi. Both were prepared to perfection and presented beautifully. Dessert fell right in line with the high quality of everything else. We were thoroughly charmed - everything was well worth the price... it was an unforgettable dining experience.
I frequent the Moshulu often but this was the first and last time I was there on Easter or any other holiday for that matter. "Madhouse" is the only way to describe it. The noise level was high. VERY high. The aisles to and from the buffet were impassable at times. I resented paying $3.50 for a glass of orange juice given the $45 per person flat fee which did not include even one complimentary mimosa or bloody mary. Skip the holiday experience and stick to their usual outstanding lunch or brunch.
Went for Easter brunch... Food was cold but the service was good.
Seriously the best thing on the menu is their mac and cheese. You must try it! Other than that, the food is okay. It's definitely worth trying the restaurant at least once. It's a very unique experience dining on a ship. Mother's Day brunch is pretty good, although very crowded.
We had a wonderful Easter Brunch with our family! Everything was wonderful.
have been coming here for years. special occassions as well as easter brunch. this year however the food was a bit off..not 5 star quality as in the past. they seem to have scaled back.
my wife and I had a fantastic time, the food and service we're both excellent. It was a bit noisy only because there was a wedding going on that night but overall we had a 5 star experience. The lobster bisque was the best I ever had and the steak was top notch.
Very very impressed! I was not expecting such a diverse and exciting menu, I also did not expect the hospitality that was given to us. I have driven by so many times without trying it out, I honestly thought it was just place for tourists. We will be back. The only downfall is the parking fee:(
Dinner was quite good and on a Monday night it wasn't busy so service was exceptional. Our waiter was wonderful and attentive. THe food seemed a bit over priced but the view was very nice.
The waiter was awesome. He was friendly and had a cute accent. He explained all of the specials and the entree I selected. The dessert was AMAZING. I ordered the cremé bruleé and it was the best I've ever tasted. I am planning on bringing my teenage son there just for dessert because he too loves cremé bruleé. He will also love the ambience.
One of my favorite spots to eat. The food and service are great and the waterside seating adds a nice touch for a romantic dinner.
Wonderful first experience. Brunch was very good. Service was outstanding. Jared was attentive, professional and courteous.
My wife and I planned a day in the city and concluded with a fabulous dinner on the Moshulu. Having dined there several times we expected an enjoyable evening and we were not disappointed. We arrived early and were seated at a table on the river side as requested. Our server, Karla, was attentive and engaging, explaining the specials. She had a great sense of humor and helped make the evening special. The food was excellent and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. We’ll return again and suggest dinners who have not tried it yet do so soon.
The food is simply phenomenal. Sample d’horderves brought in addition to meal was delicious. The waiter was very helpful, friendly, and attentive. The sunset view of center city Philadelphia during the meal… priceless.
Its been a while since we dined at the Moshulu and what a beautiful evening this turned out to be. The crab cake platter was absolutely delicious, excellent wine list and our server was very attentive to each detail. All topped off by a window table made it a night to remember.
For those who don't know, the Moshulu is an authentic sailing ship converted into a restaurant. "Scenic View" is a relative term when looking at the pier not far from the Moshulu ... but it is a unique dining atmosphere and everyone should try it at least once. As usual, the menu was creative, food was very good, and the service excellent! Ask for a table by the window (porthole). Although a bit pricey it's worth it; try getting a Groupon so you can save a few $$
Our party of six family members thoroughly enjoyed our luncheon Birthday celebration for Nana. Our server, Carla (9 Bob) was great. Very efficient, friendly and considerate. She made sure we had good memories of our party. The food was very good. The Moshulu has an amazing history and makes a great way to experience the age of sailing.
We will be recommending the Moshulu to our friends.
Overpriced food that was not exceptional. Prepare to pay easily $150 for two people for average food.
Excellent, love this place just wish the prices were a bit lower.
the lobster bisque was excellent and so were the warm rolls but the duck breast entree just ok. Th duck was sliced too thick and was a a little tough and dry. I asked for more sauce, which they brought and it was better. My frined had the prok chop which was huge but also a litlle tough and dry
Elegant and cozy at the same time, exquisite cuisine and attentive service all made for a truly memorable dining experience at this unique landmark restaurant on the waterfront. I certainly will be a regular patron of this wonderful getaway.
I thought the brunch was overpriced. I've had better food elsewhere in the city for less; I'm guessing I paid for the ambience. Also the online and printed menu boasts a chocolate fountain, but apparently they no longer have it. Given that we each paid $40 plus 20% gratuity(when they really only refilled drinks and brought me my main course- rest was buffet) I would think the least they could do is reprint the correct menu and update their website.
Went for Brunch. Food was excellent best Shrimp and Grits ever. Table had both breakfast and lunch entries. Unlimited champagne which kept on flowing. Waitress very good. Had great table next to windows looking out on water. (windows could have been a little cleaner). Desert table was huge lots of choices like creme brulee, cheese cake,fruit tarts, etc.
I found the food to be amazing and the ambiance very nice. The service was great and helpful. How ever I did have a server spill something on the back of my shirt which wasn't noticed till I was home.
Removing one table per seating area would make all the difference in the world in this lovely restaurant! It would make weaving to your seat easier, as well as make it truly a romantic dinner spot, as the noise level would be reduced.
The food and service were outstanding. Overall, it was a lovely special dinner for a belated birthday celebration.
The food was great! I would have preferred to dine on the other side and face the water instead of the parking lot. It would have been a nice gesture to not charge us for the one piece of cake that we ordered to celebrate my birthday. We spent a lot of money on dinner and drinks.
Great food and super service, with a great setting. Very enjoyable.
