Moxie's Grill & Bar - University Ratings and Reviews
Our steaks were over cooked. The server and manager apologized and the manager offered a discount. The waitress was inattentive. We had to ask other people for coffee, water, etc. We sat for quite a while with empty coffee mugs and dessert plate waiting for her to bring us our bill.
The two hostesses provided friendly, immediate attention. Our server, ConnorP, was polite, friendly, observant from a distance, and attentive without being "in your face".
My Virgin Caesar was well constructed, imaginative, with balanced spiciness. We also shared the Big Life lager and ale. Both were true to form but a bit lighter on the scale for most craft beers; however, they would pair well with many menu items. We particularly enjoyed the Fresh Smashed Guacamole and the Cheddar - broccoli (still had a bit of crunch!) soup. Sauteed mushrooms in the steak sandwich and roast beef dip were flavourful with good texture.
We did request a quieter area and had a window booth which worked well. The main area is a bit loud. Very clean and well sized washrooms.
All in all, an excellent experience and good precursor to the theatre. Arrive early to enjoy.
This location is just a giant pub with a mostly pub favourites menu.
Lunch house din was "super loud." I was at a table with 3 people at the very back of the restaurant (as far from the front door / bar as you can get) and I could barely have a conversation with everyone at the table.
The pub food was so-so, however, our server was super fabulous, accommodating and on point. I cannot comment on value as I did not pay the check.
Moxie's offers good value and good food. Our server was very attentive and engaging during our recent visit. The menu changes from time to time, so there are often new and interesting choices. The only downside is that the place is incredibly noisy and even in the dining area the music and people noise was a bit of a challenge. Nevertheless, will go back in the future (as we have in the past).
Not your typical Moxie's experience. There are a couple of other Moxie's that we go to, but I can't bring my family back to the one on University Ave. I believe that a Blue Jays game had gone on earlier, so the restaurant was crowded with fans. Unfortunately our table was too loud to carry on conversations with my family. When we arrived, we ordered the bottle of wine that we order at the other 2 locations. We didn't realize that it wasn't available at this location and the server brought the wrong bottle. We ended up having it anyway, but its a very different wine and was much more expensive. I asked for water for the table and only received a glass of water for myself. Our server was nowhere to be found when we needed him and we ended up asking other servers for help. I would suspect that if we had a different server and a quieter table, we would have had a much better experience.
I asked for tuna but think i got something raw - salmon? (i could be wrong) and didn't frankly have time to go back - but just left the salmon and ate the salad
The soup was good but would have liked to see an offer of say fresh black pepper. Otherwise ok overall, but not not sure if id want to go here again or recommend it.
I ordered a salad that was supposed to have chicken in it and they forgot the chicken, so I had to wait for them to cook up some chicken to add to the salad. My friends were done their meals by the time I got the correct one. They also forgot to bring my daughter her ice cream. At least they didn't charge me for my meal. Otherwise it was ok, but the service could have been better.
The only problem I encountered is that I believe I sat on something that was left on the seat...unfortunately tomato sauce and I was wearing white pants. However, the server was wonderful and brought wet naps over to me which helped but white pants are white pants...other than this, the experience was quite good and I will continue to recommend Moxie's...
I went there for a quick lunch. I ordered a club sandwich that arrived within 10 minutes of ordering. Service was very friendly & efficient . There was a problem with the devices that process credit card transactions which caused a delay in leaving the restaurant. The food is good & I enjoy the House draft beer. I will be back.
Disappointed in the overall experience. The food was good but the service sucked. Our waitress Allison had to be reminded to bring us water, then had to be reminded to bring me the glass of wine I ordered and then I had to ask her to check on our food. I won't go here again. There are too many good restaurants in Toronto to have sub par service.
I thought it was a great experience. The menu was varied with lots of diverse choices. Due to traffic issues, we were 30 minutes late for our reservations yet they were very accommodating in finding us a table. The service was great and our server was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Very good value!
Went there for my parents 26th Anniversary. Food was great and staff was very kind. Sometimes did not know where our waitress was but she did her best to check in on us regulary. It was a bit darker than other Moxies' I've been too, and very loud in the bar section, which carried to the rest of the restaurant. But overall great venue, and they help you celebrate your special occasion with great dessert plating. (Pic was too large to upload)
When I entered the place, they did not even ask if we had made a reservation or not, I had to tell them that I had put in a reservation because I made a special request on it. Because it was my fiances birthday. And after we got seated it took nearly 10 minutes before some one approached and asked if we want something to drink when we did not even have the drinks menu. only had the food menu. had to tell her we need the drinks menu.
and after she gave that waited another 10 minutes or so for her to come back. she was serving other tables that came after us. got the food and thought putting in the special request as it was my fiance's birthday would bring a dessert or something after food, but clearly did not care about the reservation or the request I made.
VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED in this. specially for a downtown location.
