For a filet mignon, its was pretty tough and to much grizzle thought it.
Disappointed for the price of $40.00

As always, Sarah made our lunch easy and enjoyable. Sarah has a great report with clients and she is one of the reasons we can recommend Moxies to friends.
*we enjoy the atmosphere without distracting music....we can talk without yelling over the sound of music.

Thé food was not as fresh as usual. In one of the plate that was serve to us, we found an hair approximately 20 inches long. The manager on shift came to see us and gave us an honest answer. He also took care of us. This is unusual for this restaurant but nevertheless this is not what you expect.

Server Lulu was slow and not very welcoming, we waited 15 mins before she came to our table for the first time, left empty classes when getting refills and wasn’t very present during the evening. The 2 staff members who brought us our food were very cheery and delightful they were very accommodating and were fast and efficient.

The food was delicious but was disappointed that they changed the poke tuna:( have been going there for years and love the poke tuna but they removed the tomatoes from the recipe and switched to a mix of wonton chips, the wonton chips don’t go with the poke tuna:( only reason I gave four stars for food.

Other than that it was great, always love our experience at Moxies Orleans! Service always great:) and the birthday girl was thrilled!!

This restaurant is close by and really close to the movie theatre. Perfect for going for a drink after a movie.
The food is always dependable to be tasty. The portions are not too small nor too big, nor are the plates heaped with fillers such as fries. If I have company from out of town, I like taking them to Moxie's.

For people who have celiac disease, this is one of the best places to eat as they are really careful to avoid cross contamination. They food is always fabulous and service excellent.

We usually deal with Sarah C. during the day but we had a evening date and were served by Jay and he did an AWESOME Job! He had big shoes to fill with us being used to Sarah, but he pulled a great show!

We had a very nice, friendly and caring waitress. Share calamari and dry ribs were great. Steak in the steak salad was rare as requested. Miso Ramen bowl+shrimps was really good and the bowl was so large that it could probably serve two people, especially after shared plates. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was really well made and could be a meal of its own or great for sharing again. Overall, highly recommended based on our experience!

I’m officially tired of moxies. They need a new menu. Their prices are also too much for both the quality and quantity. We were there for mother’s day and sat close to the kitchen and it was so uncomfortable. Our eyes were burning from the fumes and we all smelled so bad afterwards. Overall we did not enjoy ourselves. Expensive night for nothing:(

But not for the steak. It is over priced for tough cuts. When compared to the keg the steaks are smaller, tougher and font come with complimentary bread which keg dues fit almost sand price. The Thai curry was lovely though.

Wonderful service!! Hostess sat us right away and she hung up our coats for us . Super friendly!We loved that we didnt feel rushed from apps to meal. Only thing was food could have been a bit warmer but portion sizes were excellent and flavor was spot on. Servers were friendly and informative. Will definitely be coming back! Thank you for a wonderful evening

Everything was wonderful except the calamari, it was very chewy and tough. I would not order it again but our meals were very good and the service was fantastic. The Orleans Moxie's is our usual location and we will continue to enjoy our date night there.
