Moxie's Grill & Bar - St. John's
Lights could be dimmed a tiny bit lower for later evening meals. Would be perfrct
Each year we go to moxies for our Christmas dinner date. This year we decided to go a little earlier just in case the city has to shut down at any point due to Covid. We made a reservation early to make sure we were able to get in. On that day, I called to see if we could change our reservation to earlier and they said not a problem so we showed up at the new time. We were brought to our table and ordered our drinks. We were not advised until after we received our drinks that the restaurant had run out of steak, which is what we have there every year and what we went for. I feel the restaurant had ample opportunities to divulge this information prior to our reservation or even when we arrived before we were seated and served drinks.
We went with 2 kids and the sound was really quiet, what was great, because the little one was sleeping. The food was excellent!! The only issue was the service. We didn’t see the waitress quite often when we needed. Every time we needed something it took a while for it’s to get it. But since we were not on a hurry it wasn’t a big issue. The overall experience was great.
Everything felt like I was eating at a fast food restaurant, plus it’s was very salty. For $120 I was expecting a different experience.
Good food, good service, great evening out.
We sat on the glassed-in deck and with the overhead heaters on, it was perfect! The waitress was knowledgeable, pleasant, came around often (but not too often) to see how we were doing. She offered suggestions when we couldn't decide - we took her advice and we were not disappointed! All in all, it was a good evening and we would certainly go to Moxie's again.
Overall amazing experience with Moxies in St. John’s. Great food, ambiance and service. Would haughty recommend!
Horrible experience with the seating
Food was great
Emily our server was absolutely amazing. Also another server Courtney came by to see how things are were and ensure we had everything we needed and was very friendly and attentive.
Thanks ladies :)
What a great time! Excellent food, half priced wine wednesdays and my server was such a treat! Thanks again
Love Moxie’s but disappointed with both meals. Steak was fatty and chewy in both beef dishes tonight 😐
I specifically asked for a high top and did not select the patio, but that’s where we were sat. The heaters out there were way too warm, it felt like I was at an ice rink with a heater directly above me. The waiter was not very friendly. I asked for honey garlic sauce and was given something entirely different (not even sure what it was). For a relatively expensive restaurant, I expect better. We go to Moxie’s frequently and this was not their usual standard.
Disappointed in quality of food. Wings had no taste and over priced Had fettuccine for entree and found it to be Comparable to a microwave dinner
Have eaten at Moxie’s many times before and found food to be terrible this time. Service was great but will not recommend To others based on my experience
Great experience, great food, friendly staff. We had a great dinner!
We were not even close to finishing our appetizer when they brought out the meal. It was sent back to the kitchen and placed under heat lamps.
We still were not finished our appetizer when it was brought to us again. Felt very rushed
Great drinks, food & atmosphere! The server was amazing (Courtney)
Table not ready on arrival.
Small menu - many of our favourites are no longer available.
White wine was not chilled.
Food quality was great - the only positive.
The server was absolutely amazing, super attentive!
Our server (Kyle?) was amazing.
Openly welcomed our party of 7, friendly staff, excellent service. We had our own dining area, which was really nice, as we were there for a baby shower. Did not rush us. Free dessert for our guest of honour. Food was great, atmosphere wonderful.
Highly recommend for a group up to 10 people.
The chicken nachos were pricey but amazing. Nothing special about the main course, the fries were not good. Wasn't worth the price in my opinion.
Went for a birthday dinner, very good service
Great evening. Like the beer!
Great service. Food was exceptional as always.
Too many “were all out” “we changed the menu” “we don’t have that sauce” when it was one of the options given to us. Also cod would be nice to see back on the menu especially for Newfoundland, really came in for a fish taco as it was my favourite on the menu.
Your nachos suck! Won’t be back
Beautiful dinner on the patio. Food was good , service was excellent .
It was great food and the bar tender was quick to come for our drink orders and recommend an app for us. The service and food was good!
Our server was Nate and he was awesome! Very positive and upbeat, great service! And he gets bonus points for being great with my kids!
As always the food is delicious and the service was excellent. Will be back soon.
A nice place to gather with friends and family for a great meal
I visited Moxies twice while a guest at the Sandman Hotel this weekend. Unfortunately both experiences were horrible.
First visit was Friday evening for a drink at the bar. While waiting for my guest to arrive I ordered the signature G&T - which must mean God Awful & Terrible. It was served by the laziest barmaid on the planet who couldn’t be bothered to even muddle the lime as described on the cocktail menu. At no point did she even ask how my drink was despite it hardly being touched the entire time. My guest order the homemade hard lemonade - no muddle or sweetener to see here folks - too much work. I guess the barmaid was too preoccupied chatting with the 4 other customers in the entire bar. Let’s not forget the lights on bust or the MOUSE that skittered across the floor adding to the ambiance...cheque please!
Second visit was to the dining room with the kids before an evening of fun. If you are looking for a terrible value for mediocre food at best then you’ve come to the right place. You can get the smallest Poutine you have ever seen for $9.50 or a bland, overcooked two-piece Fish & Chips for $25 with limp fries, flavourless slaw and an absent tartar sauce. Let’s not forget the fountain pop that costs almost $4 per glass.
At least we didn’t get a visit from the Moxie MOUSE at dinner...
We (my girlfriend and me) had an amazing time at Moxie's last night the food was amazing I had the ramen and she had fish tacos l, the appetizer was delicious and the desert was something else we had the flourless chocolate cake and it was amazing by itself. Couldn't of asked for a better time or a better server. Thank you Moxie's for such a great night
Food was great! Service was awesome as well!
Birthday celebration Excellent all around service !
The Valentine’s Day dinner for 2 menu was perfect! Service was awesome, Aaron was our server and did a great job!Thank you!
I made reservations. When we arrived we were asked to wait in the lobby or at the bar and it shouldn’t take too long to be seated. We had a drink when we noticed a couple who was pet of our reservation were seated at a table but nobody came to inform us. We joined them and said yes the table was ready for us. I thought it was just an oversight. Things were busy that night. However we waited another 20 minutes before we finally tracked someone down to get our drink order and put in our food order. We received 4 plates, sets of silverware for 5 and 3 napkins. None of us ordered appetizers. When our food finally arrive there was no ketchup or salt and pepper. Felt awkward like we showed up on the wrong night. People were pleasant but not service oriented. I was disappointed as this isn’t a normal Moxie experience.
Food was good portion, server was great, food was overall good tasting but I ended up with a hair in my burger. The staff did give me a new one at new charge. Always have a good experience at Moxie’s.
