Great dinner. Our waitress was wonderful, and even brought our 2 year old’s dinner out with our appetizers so he didn’t have to wait. This was our second dinner here, and it was just as good this time.

A dress casual restaurant with competently good food. Everything was very tasty, and worth the price, but nothing stuck out especially. Very good cocktails, nice cheese plate, and the bean dip was excellent. Service attentive and fast, but not rushed. A good place to go for a nice meal.

Over all we had a nice dinner. We haven’t been there for a while and it was nice to be back. We started with the calamari appetizer, and it was suppose to be breaded but since my husband is GF they offered to just sauté it. It was delicious.
Wish they offered some GF pasta, there’s so many good brands now that they could easily keep some in stock, but my husband had the cod which he loved. I had the vegetarian stew with lamb kabobs. Frankly I was underwhelmed by this dish. Too much fennel and just bla....
We ended with the best dessert in the city, their baked hot chocolate....that’s gf (minus the cookie which I gallantly ate myself) so the two of us shared....it’s a long time favorite and still just as deliciously I remembered it.
Will be back.

Excellent food and service. My husband got the mashed potatoes and filet and it was excellent. I got the fish special that night over risotto. Excellent dishes, would go back again. It's worth every penny. They also serve bread with their house bean dip with oil (hummus) and it was so good we had to take some home.

Lovely Birthday dinner with my husband and daughter. Tuesday evening on a winter night, the restaurant was quiet, which we had hoped for. The service was very attentive without being obtrusive. The menu included a selection of specialty cheeses as an appetizer. This was a good choice as all three of us could share the appetizer and we sampled some cheeses that we never had before. As a main course did I opt for the tuna, which was a generous portion and accompanied by a sticky rice side and spicy wasabi. Very delicious and nicely presented. My daughter had the burger which she loved, but was unable to finish due to its size, good value. The cocktails to start with were nice and the entire evening meal was flawless with really great service. We're looking forward to return soon.

Reservation was easy via Open Table. The restaurant was not very busy, but we had to wait for almost an hour for our orders. My wife's scallops were over done and the plating was unimaginative. My meal, walleye, was very good plated well.
We live about 5 - 10 minutes from the restaurant so it's quite convenient. However, the food and liquor are pricy.

Short rib and filet entrees did not disappoint but rapini and mushroom demi-glace too salty to eat!

Apple fritter had no evidence of apple in the dessert. Seemed like donut holes and ice-cream. Good though.

This was my wife's birthday and we have experienced Moxie's wonderful experience and environment a few times in the past. Ryan our server was very good. Unfortunately it was an off night for the food. Calamari was okay at best and our entrees were less than expected. Unfortunate but my duck dish was unexpectedly tough and was removed from the bill without request. Never experienced chewy duck breast before especially when it was confit. Have to think long and hard about returning since there are so many other options in the city. Considering that this was my wife's 50th birthday celebration dinner, we were less than impressed. Sorry.

Moxie used to be a "go to" - of 6 people, 2 hated their meals, and the rest thought theirs was "okay". For the prices, the food should be excellent all around. Really disappointing for a former favorite. I have heard this from several people lately, too.

I used to go to Moxie a couple times a month, for years. Got away from going for no particular reason. Friends recently came to town and I needed a central meeting place and chose this restaurant. Really glad I did. The service was excellent, the menu diverse enough to accommodate our table, and all selections excellent. We will be coming back...soon.

Not bad, but probably won't go back. Calamari appetizer was excellent, as was the bread and hummus served with the meal (though we had to ask for it a couple times before our server finally brought it). Our server was a little too absent for my liking - wish he had checked in with us a few more times. My wife and I both ordered lamb - I had the lamb shank and she had the lamb filet. They were so-so - they both tasted fine but didn't really stand out. The cocktails and wine were very good. Desert was excellent - went with the s'mores bomb and a chocolate cookie. Including one drink for each of us, it cost about $150 - not really worth going back for just an "okay" experience.
