The Valentine's day meal deal was amazing food was brought hot and fresh (each serving). The staff were amazingly friendly and to top it off there was free wine and chocolate due to the occasion. HIGHLY recommend Moxie's Grill & Bar - Shawnessy! They will definitley be seeing me more often!

The Seafood Linguini was spaghetti noodles and it was 90 percent chopped onions with little to no sauce. The menu should show pictures of what to expect. We were very disappointed in the food and the price. I would have bought a steak for that price.

We had a great time with our friends for dinner. We had a young man as our waiter and he made the difference. He was funny, informative and quick with the service. We sat at a table on the south facing windows and that waiter should get recognition. He made our evening something to remember.

We had an excellent experience at Moxie’s on Saturday evening. The food was delicious and the service was friendly, although at times a bit slow. However the staff apologized and made up for it with dessert and coupons.

The noise level was not an issue, and the glass between the kitchen and the tables really makes a difference. Overall excellent experience- will be back.

Got together with a group of 11, was a pretty tight space and rather noisy for a senior who was with us. Other than that, excellent waiter, service and food!

We were 3 'older' ladies catching up, talking lots!
Our server Matt was EXCELLENT!
Very personable and attentive, seemed genuinely interested as he interacted with us, while not 'rushing' us we chatted. Great sense of humor.
We all ordered the Salmon from the menu. It was deee-licious! Everything (Salmon, rice ,beets, and greens) were perfectly cooked, with a thoughtful, beautiful presentation. Good portions.
We've decided you'll be our 'go-to' for our next get together.
Thank-you !

Food was very good and our server was enthusiastic. Only thing I didn’t like was that I was offered a dip for the fries but only found out when I got the bill there was a charge. I think they should say it’s extra upfront

We went for dinner and had a lovely evening, which included 2 glasses Merlot, 2 entrees & 1 shared appetizer. The meal items were plated & presented beautifully, were delicious, very hot & full of flavor, and exceeded our expectations prior to ordering. Our server, Brittlyn, was wonderful - friendly, warm, professional, and always attentive to our table. We will certainly return in future for dinner, and also try the lunch menus. There was also a good selection of vegetarian/vegan options.

This Moxie’s location was amazing! The staff were all very friendly and they even accommodated a large change in our reservation time with no problem at all. The service was fast and friendly. The food was delicious and was served nice and warm. Everything tasted fresh. I won’t hesitate to go back or to recommend this location to a friend.

Fantastic service, very accommodating to those with special dietary needs, food was delicious. My choice was the sicilian and poached eggs and hollandaise sauce were tasty. The home fries i wish were shredded potatoes as they were originally in this dish. The sausage was minimal and over cooked. Moxies please go back to the original format for this dish with a slice of toast as it was delicious or add as new.

My original reservation was for 6pm, which was confirmed via email. When we arrived at the restaurant they claimed my reservation was for 7pm. Positive feedback for the one main hostess that night who honored the 6pm reservation by giving us the first available table, while others were suggesting we needed to wait until 7 to get our table.

Food is average - some ingredients are left off the menu (ex. All the onions in the herb Alfredo) so definitely ask your server what is in/on each item before ordering. Great service and great atmosphere.

My wife and I had a fabulous dinner there about eight months ago when it wasn't busy. This time, not so much. My $35 steak was on the grisly side and quite salty but cooked well; my wife commented on the saltiness but not gristle and she gave her steak no praise. Neither of us liked the quinoa rice thing although I suppose it was cooked properly; I was hungry and ate most of it. It was a very busy Friday evening and I thought the young waitress did very well. I had a pint of the Granville Island IPA and it was good but whatever happened to serving beers in nice glasses instead of the thick, heavy buckets that we get in all the pubs? At least it wasn't a mug. We were celebrating a bonus I got at work and frankly I wish we had gone somewhere else. Pretty forgettable and I doubt we'll be back unless it's the middle of the week on the spur of the moment when I feel like spending $100+, because our first dinner was super and it seems this is is the best in the neighborhood.

We were honestly a bit disappointed in Moxies this time. Our service was very slow & one of our guests didn’t get served her meal until we were all nearly finished ours & we went to find the server to remind him her food still hadn’t come out. The food was mediocre as well. It’s a good family restaurant but definitely more three star for food & service.

Absolutely great food but one meal was too cold. In no time, the manager was there apologizing and a new meal was prepared. Only problem is we didn't have room for dessert and their white chocolate brownie is to die for!

Overall great experience. Group of 10 for a family birthday. Christmas music was very loud at front reception and also at table. Asked to turn down slightly as restaurant was not busy yet and was accomodated.
Server was energetic and great to deal with.
Food all came out correctly and tasted great.
Small issue with splitting bill for 2 families was corrected with no issue.

Our previous visit to Moxie’s ended when I fainted due to a health condition. The management and staff were such a help at that time we were so appreciative. We have always enjoyed the food and service at Moxie’s over the years and they went above and beyond expectations. It was nice to enjoy an evening out with friends without heading to urgent care this time. We will be back.

Food tasted great ! Staff were friendly and attentive . The only issue I had was the fact that I put a reservation in and had requested something special for my wife as it was her birthday , and the hostess even said happy birthday , but I thought they could have had a little novelty slice of b-day cake or something , just to show how much they cared . Otherwise loved it !this

Our meals were just okay, tasty but nothing to bring us back. Cold steak, cold sauce, cold veggies but the potato was warm at least. Service was terrible, never came around asking if the meals were okay, never refilled our drinks or water. Never asked if we wanted dessert. Before he brought the bill, we gave him the gift card we had. He gave us a bill for the whole amount and said we had to come up to the front "if" we wanted to use the card. If? He said it was a pain for him, which was true but also a pain for us. Don't think we will be back any time soon.
Also - There was a three or four year old screaming in the restaurant for at least half of the time we were there. I love kids but for the love of God, leave the restaurant if you can't get your child to behave. We couldn't even have a conversation because of the screaming.

Moxie's is always an easy option - the food is usually quite good and the service is great. It is definitely one of our go-to restaurants with our kids as they love the volcano sundae!
