    We saw the reviews on OpenTable and couldn’t wait to try this place. I had the tuna tartare. It tasted like it came out of a jar with no flavor. Some lump crab meat underneath. That also tasted like it came from can. For dinner I had the filet mignon tower. It turned out to be 3 1/2 inch steaks piled on top of each other. No flavor and dry as they were so thin. Just under $300 for the two of us. Which I don’t mind spending money if the foods good. Over priced diner, food. My wife had the beet salad and mediterranean kebab. Her views were the same no flavor and cheap cuts of meat. We were paying prime prices and getting less than choice.

    Went on New Years Eve and the place was very busy which is probably why the service was not up to par. Atmosphere was sort of hectic, food was good, especially the Fennel Salad and Beet Salad as appetizers. Entree's as follows; Cowboy steak was cooked perfectly as ordered, Healthy Salmon dish was bland , veggies the highlight of that dish. Had the Cheesecake for dessert which was dense and smooth, very tasty!

    Moe's Bistro is truly an unexpected treasure in our community. The food and ambiance are excellent. The live music by George on the piano in the bar is truly exceptional. He is the "Piano Man" for sure!! I have been there for lunch with a friend on the patio, which is lovely. Went back a few days later for dinner with my husband at the bar on a Thursday night, which is when we discovered George. It seems he plays there every Friday and Saturday, so we will be going again with our friends tomorrow night (Friday). Really enjoy the casual and cozy ambiance of this restaurant.

    First I didn’t realize this was in a hotel, a best western. Second the pricing listed is fairly incorrect. Very few things on their menu are under $30. An app alone was like $24 (crab stuffed mushroom). The mixed kebab was pretty good, but very big. Could easily be split but think there was an addtl $6 charge on top of the $50+ already for the entree. Also they give you a drink menu that has “premium” wines in, which are over $20/glass. The normal wine menu is in the back of the menu. For the price I’d hesitate to go back as it seems pricier on par with nicer places in summit.

    Unusual night. We love this place and been there many times. Always excellent. last night they were short staffed. It was obvious. Took way to long for anything. We give them a pass due to labor shortages and our history of excellent service. When we paid the check with got a chip for free drinks the next time to say they were sorry. See, it is ok to underperform, we love this place. They never have underperformed before and odds are will never again

    Biggest disappointment was the credit card surcharge. It is posted on the menu, but did not notice it until the bill came back. The food was good, but a little pricey for what it is. The higher prices makes the credit card surcharge even more outrageous. There is nothing posted on their website regarding the credit card surcharge, so be forewarned and beware. There are plenty of great restaurants in the area that don't penalize you for using a credit card - patronize those restaurants. I will be.

    This restaurant is a hidden gem that has quickly become a favorite. From the intensely talented pianist/vocalist to the professional and kind stuff and the excellent food you can’t go wrong. I am newly diagnosed with celiac and they took extra care in preparing my meal to avoid cross contamination. This is our “go to” restaurant!

    First time at Moe's and, to quote an earlier review, this place is truly a hidden gem. Service, from the moment we walked in the door to Moe's greeting as we were leaving, was outstanding! My pasta was tasty and my wife's steak salad was delicious as were the salad and dessert. Our cocktails were fantastic - so fantastic that we had two! If the weather is cooperative, I recommend sitting on the deck. It is covered and adds so much to the dining experience. I would like to address some of the negative comments regarding prices/value, sharing plates and credit card usage charges. First of all, prices are published online as well as on the menu. If you don't think the pricing is fair, don't go or get up and leave after you view the menu. If you can post an online review, you are certainly savvy enough to read the menu before coming to the restaurant. Sharing and spliting plates are two different things. When you share, as my wife and I did with my salad, you receive one plate. When you request to "split" something, the kitchen splits the order on to two plates. It is not uncommon for restaurants to charge a nominal fee for this choice. With regard to the % credit card usage charge. Yeah, it stinks, but so many restaurants are doing this now. At Moe's there is a sentence in big red font on the menu notifying you that you will be charged an extra fee for using a credit card. No one should be surprised. Don't be turned off by silly reviews. Give Moe's a try.

    Beautiful outdoor patio dining. The wait staff was knowledgeable about the menu and very accommodating with our dietary restrictions. The meal was not rushed allowing time for conversation between courses, at the same time it wasn’t so slow that we were looking for staff. This was our first time at Moe’s but it definitely won’t be our last.
