This was my first experience at Moxie Grill - our service was lacking. The food appeared to be ok - nothing special. I will try other items on the menu. Note: The restaurant is attractive and fits the market - my customers are always looking for a nice drink after work. I will try a happy hour there next week.

I enjoyed everything about my experience at Moxie. It was a quiet evening I am thinking because most Houstonians were enjoying the rodeo. Which means I hit the jackpot. The service as always was on point and the food was delicious.

each employee I encountered during my visit was exceptional. Smiling, happy and willing to help at every turn. the food was very good an I liked the idea that local farming was being utilized. It appeared to be clean. And, if there was a complaint, I thought the music was way too loud. Very good experience. Go, and try it out.

I am a regular customer of Moxies and this was my first HORRIBLE experience!! My sister in law came in from California and I thought taking her to one of my favorite places would be a great idea. Let me start off by our waiter/waitress kept switching to different people. We ordered a strawberry ghost margarita and ended up not liking it so we sent it back and the bartender told us we still had to pay for it even though we didn’t like it. We wanted to leave immediately after that, NOT OK. And our food/drinks just kept taking longer and longer to get to us and we were probably 2 out of 10 people out on the patio so it wasn’t very busy. Just not what I’m used to from Moxies customer service I was shocked.

The open concept was appealing, limited menu, very noisy and loud (not the kind of place for date night if you plan on talking or privacy), had to flag waiter down several times (didn't bring back credit card and had to flag several down to get it back before we left), and just wanted to try something new (not a place that I would want to go back to, even for drinks). Caters to millennials and some of the waitresses looked sleazy.

This restaurant could barely keep diners in the doors when it was Canyon Grill. Now it is the hot spot to see and be seen. The menu is a bit all over the place, maybe trying to entice all appetites, however it appears they are trying to figure themselves out. Parking is not easy on weekends. A weekday visit is much better. Entrees are a bit pricey. A salad with salmon was good, not exceptional. A burger platter was very good, and a French dip was also quite good. Their fries are hand cut and well seasoned. The bar area is vibrant downstairs, often too boisterous for the customers at the adjacent James Avery. Piped music tries to do its best in the jewelry store, however a shared glass wall does not work to keep restaurant dining noise out. Time will tell which retailer is left standing.

Our server Tim was really off with service! Very forgetful, and just all over the place.....maybe he was having a bad day but for my birthday, I shouldn’t have experienced that poor level of service! A couple of my guest didn’t even get their orders at all....wasn’t ever put in by Tim So, I’m just a little taken back.....never experienced that level of service from here before.

I would have given this restaurant higher stars but for the the noise level. Its a perfect place to go to watch sports or to have a lively conversation and drinks with friends, but not for couples wanting a nice dinner where you can hear the conversation at the table. Our res were for 8pm. The server was very attentive and overall service was excellent. The menu has a good variety of entrees from which to choose. One of us had the beef vindaloo with jasmine rice and naan bread on the side, which was really good and large enough entree to be able to take leftovers home, one had the chipotle chicken mango entree with fresh vegetables which was also very good, other two had beef dip sandwiches which were served on a pretzel bun--do I need to say more! The sandwich came with french fries. Overall the food was very good and we'll probably come back during a more quiet time of the day!

Moxie's is always a good evening. The food is well prepared and service is excellent. We picked an evening when the college football playoff was on, so the normally moderate high noise level was quite high (deafening on touchdowns).

The server was slow and less than attentive. She didn’t seem to know the menu. She checked back on us very late. The drinks took 15 minutes to receive. The drink appeared to be made completely wrong. When asked about the content of the drink she seemed unsure.

I’ve dined at Moxie’s a few times but this past weekend noticed that they have a “new policy” where they automatically add 18.5% gratuity to your check after 9 pm on the weekends. The waitress informed me that it was stated on the menu, but it wasn’t. I won’t be dining here again.
