Food was just OK, too bland for our taste. Pizza crust was hard. But it was served fast. The service was friendly and everyone received the right order but the wrong food on their bills. I guess the waitress was overwhelmed because there were 11 of us at one table. I have been to other Moxie's in the Ottawa area... More

Maybe we were unlucky with extra salt in the food, but double veggies means double veggies, and there is no need to justify what is not by our server and supervisor.

Hi Newni, I am very sorry to hear that your experience was not up to our standards. I would like to talk to you about your visit and what we can do to make sure you are not disappointed again. Would you prefer to be contacted by email or by phone? Tim Carmichael More

I travel all across Canada for work and leisure. I visit all major cities on a regular basis and lucky to try all kind of restaurants. Moxie's is for me THE best place to eat while visiting any great cities in Canada. Price vs quality is absolutely stunning. But moreover, the consistency is always there. The must-try are the sushi... More

I've been Moxie's many times in many places. This location is my favorite. The staff always sets a good mood for a fun night out. Dinner choices are great an not to heavy. The bar offers great cocktails and they have regular drink specials. They never dissapoint and I keep coming back for a great night out.

Hadn't been there in a long time. Had a Virgin mojito which was suggested by the waitress and it tasted like nothing. My steak was tough. My vegetables were not cooked enough. Baked potato and mushroom skillet were tasty, but heavy or greasy. I don't think I will go back.

I always like to order multiple plates the first time I'm at a restaurant. We really enjoyed most of the items we ordered and I have to honestly say that we enjoyed the food. However, it upset me that we got all of our food at once, as if they just wanted to rush us out of the place. Not... More

Hi Mohammad, I am very sorry and disappointed to hear about your experience last night. This is not the standard of service that we strive for at Moxies. If you could, I would like more information about your evening so that I can talk to my serving team about this to ensure that we do not make this mistake again.... More

We started out on the patio but moved indoors as the sun set and the temperature dropped. Verry good and friendly service. Six different meals enjoyed by all from age 5 to 67.

Moxies is a great place to go wether you have company or not. Great service and great food. New server, hovering over me a little too much but overall a great dinner.

Thank Andree M
Management response:

Thank you Andree. Glad that you enjoyed your dinner. I'll talk to the servers to look for more cues to help determine when to back off a little. Look forward to having you choose to dine with us again. Tim Carmichael More

The pasta was beyond delicious! Very tasty Chicken Madeira Rigatoni. Been going to Moxie's for many years now and never left not pleased with either food or service. Lovely atmosphere, great ambience, loud and fun! If you're a seafood person, I recommend the Salmon dishes or Shrimp & Lobster Linguine. Have not tried their burgers yet, but a friend had... More

Went for late night dinner with my wife. Very disappointing. I had the dry ribs which I had hoped would be baked with some spices but instead it was deep fried and reminded me of Kentucky Fried. My wife had fish tacos which were equally disappointing. The shredded cabbage was very creamy, too creamy. Service was only okay. The server... More
