By far, the best characteristic is the top, cute staff....which is very hard to replicate in Houston!

Christian was our server and was very good. He explained the dishes, cocktails and attentive without hovering over you. The food was good (a little salty for me but hubby loved it). We had the poke, guacamole and power bowl. All delicious. We will be back as it had a nice fun vibe.

Went for Houston Restaurant Weeks 2019 and the food was amazing. It was a great deal for the amount of food we received. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere is great. Will definitely be coming to try the rest of their menu.

Service was amazing, Food was good and value was decent. The only complaint is that the music was up a few notches more than I’d like. Not to be a stick in the mud

My grandmother and great aunt flew into town to visit my family. I picked this on a whim and I’m glad I did. The server we had was amazing (short girl with dark blonde hair) always made sure our water glasses were full and that my family was happy! Will definitely be coming back.

Wonderful time on the patio with nice music. There was a group that crowed right around us since we were so close to the bar and were very loud to where we couldn’t even hear each other. The waitress moved us to a new table.

I had my birthday brunch at Moxie’s and I had a special request. Not only did they have the bottle of Champagne on the table with glasses ready, but they purchased a picture frame with a note that said Happy Birthday. The waitress checked on us often and the service was fast and friendly. I had the best evening, and at the end they brought me a special birthday cake which was a surprise. I loved my experience and I will definitely go back.

It was my first time going. The food selection was moderate, please add more to your selection. I had the "hot mess" for a drink and that it was......a "hot mess"!! It wasn't very good. I'd go back because the ambience was pleasing! Hopefully they'll be more added to the menu when I return. In all, I'd recommend this place!

The hostess tried to seat me at a table in the very back of the restaurant by the bathroom. I assume that is where most of the black guests are usually seated. I don’t know why because we have equal rights and can sit anywhere inside. I asked for another table. Then the waitress mixed up our credit cards and had to get help from the manager. I don’t like this establishment.

We visited because Moxie’s was one of the restaurants on the Uptown Dine Around in June. We sat outside because the noise level inside was very high. We ordered drinks to begin our meal; we asked for an unusual drink (a White Linen)and the bar made it perfectly. The special menu offered a prix fixe menu with several options. Appetizer guacamole & chips was fresh, Salmon with vegetables was good, but covered in butter. But then, who doesn’t like butter on everything? Dessert - white chocolate brownie a la mode was huge, but the flavor was average. I recommend Moxie’s, and we enjoyed our experience, but there are many restaurants in Houston that are equal in ambience, price and quality.

This was a cool restaurant with young, energetic, fun people as patrons. Our waitress was in a black cocktail dress, which was kind of cool and she took great care of us. The food was delicious. We had the salmon salad and it was very tasty and filling. We are in our 60's and because the music was pretty loud, we had a hard time hearing each other, but we didn't ask them to turn it down in fear of sounding like that old man who comes out of his front door and yells at the kids "GET OFF MY LAWN!". ☺

We are definitely going back!

It was an amazing experience! It took the server a min to come back to take our food order. Then our drinks came out with our food! But the food was outstanding and the grapefruit mojito was great!

We went to Moxie's for brunch. The French Toast was thick, but not overly heavy. The drinks were really good too. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive.

We're looking forward to trying the patio when it's not so hot.

Great ambiance but the drinks were HORRIBLE! I’m not even a regular drinker but couldn’t get a buzz. The sangria was horribly dry. It’s super loud so everyone just gets louder to even try to have a conversation. I will say, however, that the wings and potstickers were awesome. The server was nice.

Nice place to watch a game. The service was disappointing. Our waiter walked by several times without checking on us and we had to flag her multiple times just to order additional items, then the food was just ok. There’s a twist in the menu, but food did not reach the description. The tempura shrimp tasted like a less seasoned fried shrimp and didn’t even look like tempura. My chicken sandwich was over cooked.

This is probably a better place for drinks, but may have to expect spotty service on a game night.
