“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Went for lunch, sat in the restaurant section, not the bar. Food was great, service even better. Had the dumplings and my husband had the fish tacos. Delish but pricey!

“Pleasant time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Met my friends for brunch on Sunday, Dec 30. We only see each other a couple of times a year and we stayed to gab for almost 4 hours. After our meal plus many coffee refills, they didn't try to rush us out, they just let us be, so this was nice that we could enjoy the company without feeling like we had to leave. The brunch food was excellent. 2 of us had the crab cake benedict and one had the pancetta benedict, both great. Our waitress was very friendly and went out of her way to make sure we got exactly what we were looking for, with recommendations on how to order it for the best result.

“near T&T”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

In general I am not a fan of any Moxie's. This one is laid out like Kanata Moxie's. If you're a group of men, you can sit on the left side (more of a bar, dark inside). Otherwise you should sit on the right side (more family friendly). They try to make this place look swanky, and a lot of the waitresses are young and wear too short skirts, but still, no chef in there. Just a bunch of teenagers microwaving some M&M meat shop type frozen food, like at countless other restaurants (Kelsey's, Milestones, etc.)

Luckily we visited during brunch so it was a lot cheaper than supper. Only like $12.99 for each lunch. We all thought our meals were ok.

“Don't Bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This restaurant gives new definition to pretense. The staff believe that they are special people and that they are several notches above their clientele. The food quality is good but is anything but good value.
