Picked this venue to watch the Astros World Series game and have a business dinner with clients. It was an excellent choice because it was classier than the usual sports bar. We also found the food to be very good. I would definitely go back.

We were looking for a nice atmosphere with above average food where we could catch a World Series game and celebrate an occasion. Moxie’s delivered on all fronts in outstanding fashion, food, service, attitude and total experiences was top notch, please keep it up!

Adrian was fantastic. He was very respectful that we were in conversations and was efficient at clearing the table as courses moved along. A great experience overall as this was my first time to the Houston location!

Friendly service, average food for an above average price puts Moxie’s firmly in the non-distinctive space. Many competitive options in the area that are far better. If you want a beer or drink in, essentially, an almost upscale sports bar - go. But no need to go for the dining and food.

Good food. A bit pricey. Chips stale and asked for news ones and they came out in a jiffy. Salmon on ceasar salad was tiny.

Kimberly was our server and she was extremely friendly! Very pleasant and nice. This was our first time to the restaurant. Very cute atmosphere and decor. Started with the chicken lettuce wraps and they were delicious! Also had the calamari and loved the sauces. Salads, burger, and steak were terrific! My burger and husband's steak were cooked to perfection! We really enjoyed the meal!! Can't wait until they open the location in north Texas!

We went there to celebrate a birthday and we will not return because of the security guard that works there. He was very rude and disrespectful to me and a member of our party over his tennis shoes. It a horrible policy to restrict people with certain tennis shoes from coming in after 7pm when there are people inside with the same shoes on. To add insult to injury he comes upstairs to kick us out the restaurant as we are closing our tickets. We were already leaving but his abrasive attitude sealed it for me. As long as he is there I will never come back to Moxie’s.

Food was not impressive but I didn’t really care much about. However, the attitude from the hostess and bartenders made me not want to go back again.

The food was amazing! The layout was really chic and I liked that the sound level was low so we could actually have a conversation. Our waitress was energetic, knowledgeable and patient. I will definitely go back!

waitress was very slow, we felt like she didnt want our table. she didn't even mention restaurant week to us and the entree i ordered were on that menu , we over herd another waiter telling her table about it. then the food... i had the mango chicken , it was very over cooked.. it was so dry. my wife ordered the curry shrimp. the shrimp wasn't cooked, the manger took that off the check. we didnt have the heart to tell him about the chicken also . it was our anniversary and our first time there. very disappointing we came VERY far to come here

The ambiance was great, it wasn’t too loud upstairs. Our waitress seemed to be extremely busy even though she didn’t have many tables to service. She took a while to check in with us. Overall the birthday party went well.

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.

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.
