I love Moxies! Literally my favorite restaurant! The food is so good and the drink are fantastic. The downstairs gives more of a sporty vibe fun vibe. Upstairs is more like a fine dining!

From the moment we walked in we were taken away by the super cheerful greeter who took us right to our table. The waitress was outstanding as was the manger!

Great food and excellent service. We went at the end of the winter storm when water was being restored. Server explained all choices for beverages and why. Manager came by to check on everything. This is my second visit to the restaurant. There will be more!

My husband and I ultimately had a nice dinner at Moxie. We initially were told we would not be able to stay due to a dress code. My husband had on athleisure attire and it was after 7pm on a Thursday. We were unaware of the dress code as we had just gotten off a flight from FL and were just wanting to have a nice dinner. Thankfully the hostess allowed us to keep our reservation and showed us upstairs to be seated.

The calamari was excellent. The shrimp tacos were terrible. The hostess was extremely friendly. Our waitress was not. Hence the 3 star rating.

On y va pour son service souriant et efficace, et l’impression de partager une soirée dans un lieu trendy.
Le resto s’est bien adapté au Covid avec un espacement des tables qui est plutôt rassurant.

Par contre la place est globalement trop bruyante : difficile de parler business, pas très adapté à une soirée romantique ... et les plats sont plutôt lourds et peu raffinés.

Allez-y pour profiter de la terrasse au printemps, sympa en mode apéritif avec un groupe d’amis.
Ou à la rigueur en mode famille à l’étage.

J’allais souvent au Moxie’s en arrivant à Houston, j’ai été déçu cette fois-ci : après avoir connu plein d’autres restos/bars en ville, il y a sur le même segment plein d’autres places plus trendy / calmes / raffinées.

First time in Moxies and probably the last time. Service was OK. Food was a 7 out of 10. Chicken was too chewy not from high quality chicken. It was a crowd of millennials under dressed, getting drunk, and screaming while laughing.

It was too noisy and it felt like we were in a club versus a restaurant. There is no dress code so we felt were over dressed. There were customers in jogging pants and sandals with socks (men). This is supposed to be Post Oak Galleria, not 45 south in Houston at some bar on the side of the freeway.

The crowd was a bit ghetto but it is to be expected when you allow that type of dress attire into your establishment and treat your work environment like a night club not a restaurant.
They tried to sit us down at our table with food scraps all underneath the booth and around the entrance of the booth. I looked at the hostess and told her we were not sitting in that mess.

She then said Ok and walked away. The waiter came to us afterwards and stated would you like to sit on the third booth which was the one by the kitchen.

I said yes if it is going to be cleaned. It was still left dirty on the seats which I had to wipe down myself. Food scraps still underneath my table. Disgusting. I mean HELLO COVID? Germs? And this was a Tuesday night. I hate to see a weekend evening.


The environment needs to be restructured. It is not kid friendly and hiking up the stairs in my stilettos was ridiculous especially coming down hoping I would not slip on two big hoop earrings that were left on the stair case floor walking downstairs that not one staff member cared to pick up. Scary.

Cons:

Loud Music

No dress code (not good for a restaurant that caters to the post oak area.)

Night club environment not restaurant at all

Chewy chicken (overcooked or not of high quality)

Dirty table areas (not sanitized)

Stair hazard (earrings left on staircase) someone could get hurt.

DONT know if waitress or shelf didn’t follow order notes but when I told manager,it wasn’t prepared the way I ordered,he immediately turned rude, and his attitude was terrible not professional at all! And on top of that they made us wait 15 mins to pay the check, after I asked twice for the check! Not a good first experience there at all!

Food is a good but a little pricey. Really like the scene though and the wait staff is very friendly. Recommend going on Wednesday when their wine bottles are half off.
