Absolutely ranks as one of my worst dining experiences. Words fail me.
Seriously, I am not kidding when I refer to this experience as “a joke”.

Had dinner with 2 friends that I went to highschool with 50 years ago. Food was excellent as was the half price bottles of wine. Our waiter Gabrielle enhanced the experience even more. He was attentive, always checking to make sure we were okay. Fantastic personality and very sociable and had a beautiful smile and a wonderful sense of humour. Even asked us for our opinion on his choice of clothes for an upcoming wedding he was going to. Will definetly look for him again when we come back for dinner.

We had to wait extremely long periods of time to get things, such as water, food, drinks etc... The food was just horrible. We waited for approximately 30 mins to get our bill. We had to go to the front desk and ask to pay. At that time we ask to speak with a manager, one came and upon expressing how horrible the food and service was he gave us his card and told us he'll take care of us next time. There will be no next time because we don't plan to ever return. We believe that was the manager's way of saying he basically don't care.

Lovely, diverse menu and great wait staff. There’s always a queue for tables and yet there are always empty tables out the back? Overall, a good experience

Everyone was so friendly. Had a small problem with the waitress, but can tell she was still new and her mistakes can be overlooked. Overall the food and value was really good.

We were seated in a very dark corner of the restaurant. It was so dark we used cell phone lights to see the food.
We were seated for 15 minutes before my husband when to ask someone to bring us some water and asked if were going to have a waitress.
The services was so slow and disappointing.

The waiter seemed to be avoiding us for the most part. We had to flag him down to get drinks and the bill and he seemed not in the mood to serve us. We felt it could be because we were a same sex couple but we can’t say that for sure. He wasn’t very friendly or timely with our items. Our food was delivered by someone else. He only brought us the drinks and they took long. Not trying to get anyone in trouble here. Maybe he was just having a bad day or personal issues. Just wasn’t the experience I usually get at Moxies any of the many times I’ve been there.

Usually the experience is better than the last one. You ran out of everything. My husband ordered ribs with fries (no coleslaw left). Without even asking if perhaps he wanted a small salad instead of coleslaw, a clump of potatoes was on the side of the ribs. He already had fries with his meal. No sense!

We felt sorry for the servers - they tried their best. Not enough servers were working (on Father's Day).
The food was on back order. Our cheese nachos were in a cheesy clump. Very expensive night for this poor demonstration of hospitality.

Went for a birthday. The food was not worth its money. My sandwich bread was wet. My friends plate was 26$ and way smaller than mine. Was not pleased with our food. It was also really cold for some reason.

My friend mentioned that she is allergic to fish. They have an amazing allergy protocol. The manager checks to get details. Then they discuss it with the chef and report back to you to let you know if your order could have potential cross contamination. Such a great commitment to customer service. They also make a great hand-smashed guacamole. Thanks.

I have eaten at Moxie's before and had no issues. This time, I had requested a Gluten Free menu, as I have Celiac Disease. The server did not ask any further questions. Upon leaving the restaurant I had a reaction to the food.

I had ordered off the gluten free menu and was unsure if there was some kind of cross contamination of food. I ordered the fish tacos and the kale and quinoa salad.

Not too sure if I will attend again.

Food is ok but not matching the description
Cod with baby shrimp were swimming in a dark soup
Attendant did not fully know status of their food whether it is available or not although she is really friendly
Tea pot hot water was only half filled WHY?
Disappointed at the Yorkdale location.

Nice Ambience. Good food. Waitress was great. However we had a reservation, and they took a party that had a reservation after us, in before us. Giving away our booth.
We ended up in the very back corner of the lounge. It was dark and secluded. However we did ask to switch to another booth. And that worked out well. Overall good experience minus the back corner booth.

The food and atmosphere were fine. The bathrooms were SO dirty and the staff (at least our server) so so slow. Our drinks were forgotten and we waited forever for the bill. Would really think twice before going again.
