Great dinner. Only caveat was that I mentioned when I booked via OpenTable that it was for my anniversary and the restaurant didn’t acknowledge that during our visit.

We were traveling and we like to try “local” places rather than chain restaurants. We visited on Sunday night. Service was very good with good suggestions. The short rib and grits was very good. The take on chicken waffles was original. The waffles were done like bread pudding. Delicious with the maple cream! The only bad thing I would say was the desserts had too much of a “coconut” theme too then. But, I don’t like coconut. We had an enjoyable meal and time.

Quiet night, great atmosphere, cool design of restaurant. We (2 couples) got four different dishes; chicken and waffles, moly short rib, meatloaf, seared scallops. Pototes not seasoned but food tastes well. Nothing over the top about the food though

So I have to say the evening started out rough. We sat outside and it was a bit chiller than expected which moxie has no control over so I don’t blame them for my chilliness. What was rough was our waiter came brought us water and then promptly forgot about us. We sat for a while and I even had time to go get a jacket out of the car! Eventually he came back and jokingly I suggested I thought he lost his way to our table and he came clean about forgetting us. I have to stay he and the manager redeemed themselves. We got two appetizers and a percentage off our bill. (None of which we asked for). He was very attentive the rest of the evening and everything was fabulous. Mmm. Pbr cheese curds... ahhh. I even forgot I was chilly.

My husband's brother was visiting from New York, we picked him up at JAX, and before heading home to Amelia Island, we wanted to provide him with a World-class dining experience. Moxie filled the bill beautifully! Chef Tom Grey knows better than anyone, how to do it!!! The ambiance was energetic, yet comfortable and relaxed; the service was impeccable. We started by sharing two appetizers among the three of us; with choices of the exotic and the familiar--the Seared Octopus with brussels sprout, kale slaw with ginger-peanut sauce, garlic rice crisps, and the Burrata with golden beets, toasted hazelnuts, pomegranate glaze, upland cress were both outstanding! I'm gluten-free, and the staff and kitchen were superb in substituting gluten-free bread (by the way, that was the best gluten-free bread I've tasted anywhere!) Our delicious, cooked-to-perfection entrees Dayboat scallops and Salmon arrived perfectly timed. The wine list was vast and reasonable. I have given up Chocolate for Lent, so after both said; we don't do dessert. They shared the Chocolate Buttermilk Pie and left nary a crumb.
New York has nothing on Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails. All in all, we had a five-star, world-class experience, without the new york prices, and we can't wait to go back again! The chef was such a good sport, although super busy, he agreed to let my husband take a picture of the two of us. Thank you, Chef.

My husband and I had an early dinner at Moxie and sat outside; the water view and heater made the the setting pleasant. We ordered the Brussels sprouts and smoked fish dip from the Happy Hour (till 7 PM) appetizer menu, along with a craft beer and glass of Chardonnay. We both had the small portion of Jambalaya and corn bread for our entree. All food and drinks were delicious and host, Mike and server, Bruce were outstanding. We consider Moxie to be one of the best restaurants in Jacksonville and like the fact that it’s locally owned. We will be back!

For the price of the food it tasted horrible. My husband and I paid over 100 dollars and the highlight of the our whole meal was our appetizer. The seared octopus was great and the French fries. Kinda on the soggy side but it was okay. The server was pretty but the service we received from her was horrid.

Overall average experience. We waited about 7 minutes for our table with our OpenTable reservation. Our waitress was nice but slow. When our food arrived we could tell it had been in the window for a while. My wife's shrimp and grits were luke warm at best. She ordered blackened but was served grilled. The sloppy joe I ordered as, again, average. Their bread choice made it very hard to cut and the cheese topping had hardened to a difficult to cut through layer. Our first experience at Moxie, about 6 months ago was fantastic. But our last two visits have been average to poor. Hoping they get their game back on.

When I pay a premium for a restaurant, where the food is a little better than par, I expect an extremely high level of service. Moxie failed to provide excellent service, and did not provide good service. 2 hours for 2 people is unreasonable.

The food is always great (especially the chicken and waffles) but the only complaint on the food was the portion sizes - specially the salmon and short ribs. Everything tasted great!

The service was lacking - servers not coming to our table, not getting drinks and refills, but everyone was okay in joking that the staff simply forgot about us.

The food was good quality, but it hadn't changed in 2 years. Went for a late dinner, the our server was also working a large group outside (still did a great job after we waited 15 min for our cocktails) it seemed like they were understaffed (again). The menu for the main course needs a serious update, and more protien options. The apps are old and tired for the most part. I was disappointed that the burrata was paired with beets - way to strong of a veggie to put with such a mild cheese. I don't plan on returning, and will stick to their sister restaurant- Town Hall

I met some friends for lunch and three of us had the Power Bowl which was delicious and filling. Tender Kale, avocado, quinoa, pickled onions, chickpeas with a citrus vinaigrette and while we did not choose to add a protein you certainly can. The fourth ordered the Teriyaki Bowl with brown rice, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions and Brussels sprouts to which she added shrimp. Peach tea and coffee rounded out our trip planning meal so it was quite a success!

Love to stop at this restaurant when in Jax. Brought some friends for their first visit. Enjoyed the salmon dip and the delicious deviled eggs. Then onto chicken and waffles. It never disappoints. Not thrilled about the collard greens though. Our friend had trout which he said was very good. And the short ribs were very tasty. Our waitress was very attentive. Great service.

I have been to Moxie several times and it has always been a nice experience. I have never had any complaints at all about the food. The food is creative, appropriately priced and always delicious. However, we went for a special occasion and were very disappointed with the service. Our server took an extremely long time to take our order and when it finally did come things weren't correct. My friend's meal was supposed to have an egg on the top and the egg was completely missing. They had to bring her an egg so she could put it on the food and she had to watch the rest of us eat while she waited. This is just one of the examples. Unfortunately there are more. I was so disheartened by our experience as this is usually one of our favorite places to go at the Town Center.

Service was horrible. Our waiter Crystal seemed to be having a bad day from the first time she came to the table. We didn’t let it bother us the first couple of times, but after awhile, she was just down right rude. She spilled my drink, then half clean off the table. I got up to grab a napkin from another table to finish drying off our table. Crystal seldomly visit our table. When we needed things, we received helped from a couple of other waiters and I believe she was a manager that came to assist. Our food was not well prepared, my chicken was over cooked and dry, my friend meal with extremely greasy. Overall, just a bad experience. We have been coming to Moxie for quite sometime and NEVER had I had such a bad experience.
