I picked restaurant for dinner because I was looking for a romantic place to propose to my girlfriend. I never ate there but I was told it was romantic by my boss. we stayed at the Hilton Hotel right up the street from you guys It was actually perfect we are able to walk right down to you guys It was the perfect atmosphere for me to propose our server Gary Goldstein was awesome he made it very comfortable for me I told him I was going to propose he took me And my girlfriend for a a little tour of the ship I found a nice romantic spot to propose to her. Gary even videoed it for me. Thank you Gary for all your help and thank you to the Moshulu

Great venue. . Our reservation was at 5:15. Although we enjoyed all 3 courses, we felt as though we were being rushed through our meal, being served our entrees while barely finishing our appetizers. The only other negative was paying $17 for parking.

I was extremely disappointed that it wasn’t made clear before I made the reservation that there would be a limited menu due to it being Valentines Day. I was not impressed with the food for the value. I won’t be back.

Special Valentine's day 4 course meal. Appetizers and soups were amazing but my main course was terrible. Overcooked tasteless chicken with chewy shrimp. So bad I didn't have an appetite for dessert. My wife's crabcake was ok though

Went for romantic date on Valentines Day. Our experience couldn’t have been any better! Our server, John I believe, was as professional, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and most of all attentive as we’ve ever had at any restaurant. Looking forward to our next visit!

Pre-Valentines day dinner since my SO and I both have to work the night of.

Waiter George was MORE than amazing attending to us and I only wish I could have expressed my gratitude more.

I’ve dined here more than once and NEVER EVER have been let down

This place was recommended by a coworker and did not disappoint! Gary, our server, was phenomenal. His food recommendations were on point, service was outstanding, and he made sure to show us around the whole venue after our meal when I mentioned we wanted to come back when the deck was open in the summer.

The restaurant is unique, the food was good, the service was good, but why oh why did they seat a party of about 8 to ten people who were celebrating an anniversary and seemed to believe that they were the only people on the face of the earth, whooping and hollering at regular intervals? The first 30 minutes of the dinner was so nice, with light guitar music serenading the many couples who were out celebrating an early Valentine's Day dinner. Then the rambling horde arrived and no one could hear anything but them, This was especially annoying since there was an attached and glass enclosed room adjacent to our dining room where large groups could be seated and whoop to their hearts' content without annoying the 90% of the rest of the restaurant who were also paying high prices for what they hoped would be a nice evening. I have seen this same complaint about the restaurant on this website. It is time they learned that they will lose customers if they keep up this insane seating policy.

Our server Emmy was wonderful. Absolutely the best. Very friendly and witty. Also, the food was amazing.

We were a little disappointed with seating. Placed at a 4 top. Overall though it was Emmy who made the night.

Thank you for sending me this Review/Survey! I wanted to note that we had an amazing time that evening! The only thing that threw us off a bit was the waiter's service toward us. In the beginning he was okay however, as the night progressed, we rarely saw him. I do not remember his name but( we were at the table that appeared to be leaning, we mentioned this to the Manager) at the end of the night when my husband's special request did not come out, I made mention of this to the waiter and he said he'd look into the matter. He came back with a scoop of sorbet, that I did not request, I explained the before to him and he sort of shrugged it off and walked away! I explained to my husband what was going on and that I did not request what the waiter brought out. My husband called over the Manager, explained our situation and the Manager came back very quickly with exactly what I special requested for my husband's bday.. Gratuity is included at this restaurant however, if it wasn't, he did not work for the tip that he received. Our waiter seemed a lil off-putting (that's how I AM going to describe him) so, we did not make a big thing of that situation, we were pleased with what the Manager did for us and enjoyed the rest of the evening. Again, thank you to the staff for the warm welcome and to the Manager for taking care of us~

The service was super slow took over 1hr and 3mins to be served our meal for our table of 5. The atmosphere was a little noisy due to someone having a 60th birthday party. The waiter was ok but rarely checked on us during our time there. I did like the fact they served my brother a nice sorbet for his 40th birthday dinner and gave a nice card.

We've been going to the Moshulu for over 10 years now, at least once a year on our Anniversary. Food is excellent, view and ambiance are what make it....service has always been top notch though. Little pricey but not unexpected for Philly waterfront fine dining on a clipper ship!

Good food but when you pay that much for a meal a salad should be included. Most fancy restaurants do that...

We were there to celebrate a birthday. It's an annual ritual. We love the ambiance of this place, with white linen fine dining, river view, and a reliably great seafood meal. Waiter was competent, though I had to be the one to ask his name. Best to introduce yourself to the guests :-) All in all, an enjoyable night out.

This was the second time we ate here, the first time (in April 2017) was wonderful- food, service, everything. This time we brought my parents from out of town and it was completely disappointing. The appetizers were good, but the drinks, the creme brûlée and two out of our four entrees (the two that were good ordered the same thing- the special) were just “ok”, which sucks when it is so expensive.
Our server was wonderful.
I wish I’d come the once and left it at that...
