Manager Nathan and our server worked as a team to provide everyone around us with excellent service despite the huge crowds there on Friday night. Great work and great food!

Service was excellent. We were quickly seated for our reservation showing up about 10 minutes early. Music is a bit loud but time of day on a Friday night it's expected I guess. But we were still able to have a good convo over our meal. Waitress was excellent. Quick to serve and super cheerful (not overly weird cheerful.... Just right cheerful) moxie's is becoming one of my go to spots in east end Ottawa.

If you like an over-attentive waiter this is the place to go. The first seat we were given was way too noisy, moved down to the lower level where it was a bit quieter. The waiter came over every few minutes, usually just after we had taken a bite of food....but it was a bit excessive for us.

Moxie's was quite a surprise. I thought it would be a carbon copy of other franchises. I was wrong. The interior is a combination of muted colours, excellent seating arrangements and options. Lighting and window blinds were very well selected.

Seating was immediate, servers were friendly, helpful and menu knowledgeable. Not overbearing. We were given all the time we needed to relax over pre meal drinks and appetizers.

The wine list was varied and competitively priced. The menu was also varied with reasonably priced apps and main courses. The steak frites and steak sandwich were
both exceptional.

All in all a fine dining experience.

Had a great lunch with my 2 boys, 2 and 4 yrs old!! The Southern chicken sandwich is out of this world. Always stellar service by Dan Joseph. My boys love Moxies, the attention they get from the whole team along with the 'smoking' ice cream. Looking forward to our next visit!!!

Enjoyed the food and service was very good. Little disappointed because we were under the impression it was a brunch menu but server advised you no longer have a brunch. Enjoyed none the less.

For the second time, after a reservation Moxie's on Ogilvie Road in Ottawa could not accommodate my husband in his wheel chair. When he went in to ask, they said they didn't call us back because there was already a party reserved in the wheelchair section. So once again a big disappoint for this restaurant. I will go in myself to ask what we have to do for our gift certificate to be honored.

Your new vegetarian salad (I added Tuna) was super. A friend who was with me also took it and loved it as well. The noise level was good. Suggestion to really turn down the music when you have many clients. The cacaphony of music and talking is not good. However, the table where we were seated was fine regarding noise level. Thanks.

The food, service, atmosphere were great. French service by the hostess and servers were greatly appreciated. However, the music was way too loud. We had a hard time talking at the table over the music level. Also, the choice of music (heavy rock) was not appropriate for a Sunday morning brunch. Quiet low key soft music would have been more appropriate. The restaurant has to account for older clientèle ... and there are more and more of us 😉. Thanks. Continue with the great food.
