My girlfriends and I came here for a birthday brunch while visiting from Chicago. We actually didn't realize this restaurant was situated on a boat - we were drawn to it for the bottomless bellinis. Boy, are we glad we came in. We sat in a booth and looked out onto the water from the windows while we dined. The bottomless bellinis were delicious and we were told we could even switch between drinks that comprise the bottomless menu. The three of us shared the fried chicken tenders, belgian waffles, and veggie benedict. The food was good, not great, but we really enjoyed the ambiance, drinks, and our very energetic and friendly server. We will definitely be back the next time we're in Philly.

My husband and I went to the Moshulu for my birthday which was 1/13. This is not our first time there but it will be our last. We did arrive an hour early and they were able to accommodate us. But it went down hill from there, we ordered our appetizers cocktail shrimp and lobster bisque.The soup was just warm not hot and his shrimp cocktail on was only four shrimp that were not colossal shrimp compared to other restaurants who serve the same dish. The entrees were the jump-lump crab-cake and striped bass, our food was not hot . My lump cake cake has no flavor and my husband hated his entire dish the bass was slimy and the rice bed was hard and it was cold . i also order the crab ac and cheese that had no crab . That was the reason we came back to the Moshulu for dinner but was highly disappointed. They served use flat ginger ale,Im sure it was mixed with water.
Oh and lets not forget the sliding table that keep shifting out the entire night.We were told by the waiter to not lean on the table so it doesn’t move but we sat in a booth the last time and didn’t have this problem.It was kind uncomfortable eating cold bisque while holding onto the table at the same time.
It was also a couple there arguing the whole time loudly. No One on staff asked them to lower there voices.

This was the worst birthday dinner for $200 bucks (we still tipped the waiter 40 for under average service)Even though he visited out table a total of 3 time the entire night one to take out oder,two to bring our drinks and three to give us a bill.How ever they party sitting behind us he visited their table frequently to ask them if they were okay

This was just a night of bad food and bad service.

The food was amazing hands down. The only negative was we saw a mouse run across the floor. But honestly the food and service were so good it didn’t really matter. Pricey but worth it.

Great ambiance and a very unique atmosphere. Good service and great food. A bit pricey but well worth it.

We had the half mass appetizer, Sushi rolls, crabcake dinner, and even though we were too full for desert they gave us complimentary "Happy Birthday " sorbet. We had a beautiful view of the Ben Franklin Bridge all lit up and the river. Our food was impeccable. The freshness was a joy in every bite. Our waiter paired our wine for us, as well as answered our questions about the food. He even gave us a Champaign toast on him. Thanks again Cordell. We had the best first-time at Moshulu.

Forgot my husband's birthday sorbet after I called that morning and they confirmed when I came in and was waiting for him. Extremely disappointed. Just wanted to have something special for birthday dinner . Also there was almost no one in the restaurant so it's not like they were busy. Meal was about 135 with no drinks or dessert, so for that price and no other customers, expected the tiny sorbet with candle to be brought out with our coffee as promised. Overpriced and wouldn't return but would probably be nice for drinks in the summer if you worked in the area. Might appeal to retirees.

It was a nice meal, did not like the fact that 20 percent gratuity was automatically added to the check as it was a fixed menu. It made the overall evening the cost of a weekend in Manhattan… Won’t be returning.

Outstanding food and great for New Years Eve fireworks! Excellent service on an older ship, a bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion.
