    Our server was excellent, very attentive and helpful. Food was tasty and though there was a mishap with one of the orders causinga delay, both manager and server made up for it, offering an appetizer, bringing the food as originally ordered and compensating on the bill. Awesome!

    The food was mediocre, service was very slow had to chase down the server to take our order and to bring the bill. The music was so loud we had to shout to have a conversation, apparently the nightclub vibe is the vibe for this restaurant. I won’t be returning.

    The food was alright, the apps were good. However, for a Thursday night the waiter took an exceptionally long time to serve us drinks , including our water in the beginning. Sat at the table for 20 min just waiting for water. We asked for more coke near the middle of our meal. Waiter brought it when we’re nearly finished our food lol.

    lol this is the worst moxies location EVER !!! I go to moxies ALL the time for happy hour all over the gta and this location was the most beautiful for presentation but the worst service ever. The place was empty no wonder why and although it was empty our service was horrible. Do not go here unless your willing to wait 20 minutes for appetizers and drinks. They said that staff was new but why even hire people that are inexperienced in such a busy location ! A round of our drinks were covered and we were offered free dessert but it was just not a good experience the server rushed us she stopped to have conversation with people in the restaurant while holding our drinks

    Had lunch with my mother-in-law. The server couldn’t answer questions about the food so a manager had to come to our table. He did, I must say, accommodate my allergies. We were never asked if we wanted anything to drink other than water. The noise level was terrible. We struggled to hear each other and I had to ask her to repeat many if the things she said because she speaks with a softer voice. My Cobb salad was served in a way that looked interesting but that made it harder to eat than the normal presentation. My mother-in-law doesn’t like flour and when she asked about the tortillas, was told that they were a mix of corn and flour but mostly corn. She took a chance but ended up only eating one of them and just ate the filling. I was giving the restaurant a “second chance” because it was unbearably noisy the last time I had been there but there was a large party going on. I will not return. I have eaten in other Moxie’s restaurants and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    I think they were very under staffed. It took a while to get an order for drinks. About 35’ after the food was finally ordered, the burger and fries were lukewarm at best as was the pasta. The tuna appetizer was the only bright spot.

    A brief overview of our experience is that the food took a lot longer than expected to arrive and once the food arrived, the Steak Frites I ordered was over cooked and dry, in addition the streak portion was smaller than prior experiences of ordering this at this location. We had to wait awhile to get the attention of our waitress (the shift look very understaffed) to tell her about the food that we were served. The biggest disappointment we felt was that the food was delivered by the shift/general manager and that he should’ve rejected it based on quality of the Steak Frites and ask the kitchen to remake it instead of serving to us and then we would have to request our waitress to send it back. Overall, our experience for that dining wasn’t great and it isn’t to the level of standard we expect from our previous dining experiences at the Moxie’s Downtown location. We hope if we dine at Moxie’s downtown Toronto again, that our experience will be better!

    Good food. Server forgot some of the food and she wasn't to be found to ask for it until we were almost finished eating. Sat with empty glasses for long periods each time. No compensation for forgotten food, just offered to take it it off the bill- how nice considering we never got it.

    Very poor service. Virtually every part of our order was wrong, they forgot our appetizers and then presented a bill at the end that did not reflect the adjustments the waiter said they would make. Simply cannot recommend this place.
