Hostess accommodated us with a more quiet section. Waitress was helpful with our selections, in fact we chose both that she recommended and they were excellent. Would definitely return.

Our server John was great! He was so funny, friendly, patient and kind. He was also very helpful as he helped us out with the menu when it came to our many questions. He was such a great person to be around and my friends and I were so happy we got him. He definitely made our visit to moxies on university so much more enjoyable. Thanks John!

The best salmon I’ve ever had. We had a fabulous all around experience, from the service to the food. My little girl was thrilled with the steaming ice cream! I am not easily impressed but this place seriously impressed me. Well done.

I was early to my booking and was accommodated by the hostess. My apologies but I forgot her name. She made me feel welcome as I was waiting for my guest. Upon arrival we switched seats to the outdoor patio and appreciated the flexibility for this request.

Staff is great.

Although service by the waitress was pretty good, the delivery of food was very slow. It took almost an hour for the appetizer and one and a half hours for the main courses to be delivered.

Unfortunately servers were all over the place and it was only 3 of us. 1 friend is pregnant and we literally had to remind the server(s) various times for our drinks and food order.. they'd take it, walk away and forget. Food order was wrong, it was a mess overall and not impressive at all. Highly doubt I'll be coming back which is unfortunate since me and my friends work in the financial distract and take clients out for dinners often.

Good covered patio, and not as loud as many in the area.
