Moxie’s Grill & Bar -Shawnessy - Test Kitchen
At Moxie’s we love to keep things fresh, that’s why we’re shaking things up at our Shawnessy location with the introduction of our first-ever Test Kitchen.
We’re embarking on an all-new culinary adventure and we want your input as we test all-new plates and re-imagined recipes to go alongside the untouchable favourites that made us famous.
In addition to the new menu, our Test Kitchen offers local craft brews batched exclusively for this location and integrated hospitality technology in to the service. The goal of our Test Kitchen is to test every aspect of our restaurant and ensure we provide each guest with a truly satisfying dining experience.

Music speakers were right above us and too loud.
Booked a table for 2 on the patio. Temperature was 30c - a hot one!!! And this patio was in full sun at the time. The host was offering us a table in the direct sun - with no umbrella. When asked if we could move an umbrella to accommodate us - he refused (umbrella was “secured” with bags of garden soil! Could have easily moved umbrella!) Then we asked if we could sit at a table that was in the shade. The host again refused. He said these tables were being held for groups of 4 - yet there were a number of these tables empty! These obvious “easy” solutions to our requests - were so blatantly NOT of any interest to the host, his utter lack of concern, and pure disinterest in helping the situation (read - Rude) - led us to simply walk out. Taking our business elsewhere.
Lunch special was good, lettuce wraps were excellent as always. The mini donuts amazing!
Best I had in a while last time I was there it was not as good so I was happy it was good
Very quiet! Food was great, looking forward to the patio next time!!
Great lunch! Food was delicious (lettuce wraps very good.
Took our young family (two boys aged 7 and 4) out for a freedom dinner and Moxies was fantastic. The service was excellent, atmosphere fantastic, and the food was pretty good and decently priced. Drinks a bit over priced but that’s most restaurants. We will go back!
Cob salad was so disappointing. Everything about it was 1/10. Left 80% of it
Experience was good; food was great, service was awesome. 2 Covid concerns while there:
•every table was filled; it felt as if it might have been over the new capacity. Not sure, it just felt like it.
•1 adult patron walked to and from bathroom without a mask and no staff addressed the patron which did make our table feel uncomfortable
We were in a high traffic area therefore we noticed every little thing. Staff made us feel totally comfortable.
Had a great time there with my kids. Moxie’s is always there first choice. My son loves the burger so much, he literally scarfs it down in 3 minutes. And my daughter loves the kids ice cream volcano. Service was great! I was having a blood sugar issue and my server took such good care of me right away. She was great with my kids and super attentive. The food was good as always and the space is always clean and quiet. We love coming for dinner.
Ribs a little dry. Salad and shrimp tacos were excellent!
Service was excellent and food was really good. Place was well set up for distancing and keeping patrons feeling safe and secure.
Food and service was great. We felt that the Covid-19 measures in place were adequate. Went during happy hour so it wasn't busy at that time. Best nachos in the City for sure.
The food was amazing, service was great, drinks on point. I think our only complaint was the restaurant lighting was dimmed everywhere but our table so it felt like a spotlight on us.
Great service and like the new Calamari
Fun pre valentines date night now that dine in service is open again. Our server Brit Lynn was really nice
A simple birthday celebration turned to something extravagant. Thanks to the good service and yummy food. We enjoyed every single moment while dining.
really enjoyed our meal and drinks! Second round of drinks took a little long, but we were happy overall.
It was a nice family dinner, good service and food. Look forward to coming back!
Fantastic, spaced out properly for our last Covid meal of 2020.
We both ordered steak which came out just the way we asked but on cold plates so our dinner got cold pretty quickly which was a shame.
We always have a meaningful and memorable experience at Moxie’s Shawnessy this time staff went above and beyond to help me surprise my wife with flowers and wine for our 13th wedding anniversary. Thank you Moxie’s team!
Great food every time
Our server was outstanding and contributed largely to a positive experience. The food was very good and the COVID seating planning was followed and controlled. Very good experience.
We made a reservation days in advance to sit at a standard table but unfortunately, when we arrived we had to sit in the bar at a table which is too tall for me as I have short legs and my feet fall asleep because I can’t reach the foot pedestal.
In the bar, a game was on which made it a bit loud to carry on a conversation with my dinner companion. This is why I like to sit in the restaurant.
Besides those 2 things, service was good, food was great and the safety around Covid practices was excellent. I felt safe and I would go back again for a dinner out.
Awesome presentation of food and delicious.
Great service to go with the great food.
Great fresh food, attentive service
Server not very attentive.
Excellent service from entry to departure.
Food was excellent as well. Hot dishes were hot.
We were celebrating my sons 10th birthday and he ordered a steak. It was nothing but fat and they cooked it rare when he asked for medium. Although the server took it off the bill he was very rude and never even asked us if we would like anything else after our dinner was served. The prices have really increased at Moxie’s but you don’t get what you pay for.
Food was very good.
Service was excellent.
Will come again.
Food was well presented. Knowledgeable wait staff. Rigatoni was perfectly al dente. Sauce was tasty but a bit much.
Enjoyable, quiet, excellent service and food.
The steak was a bad cut, ate half the rest had too much sinew & had to leave it.
One server working the bar section was not enough. In addition, we came to watch the Flames game but they didn’t offer any specials, nor the scratch tickets like advertised. What was upsetting is that they couldn’t figure out their TV to switch to the game. We would have stayed longer but were very disappointed by the service and left early.
Server good food very good like the new menu. Would recommend the test kitchen.
