Moshulu Ratings and Reviews
My friends and I were looking for a place in the city for Sunday noontime Brunch that's not overly formal. We wanted drinks but didn't want BYOB and not a corner bar or tavern. We wanted a view and potential outdoor garden but didn't want to sit on a busy sidewalk. We found all of that here and were pleasantly surprised to find other diners were nicely for the brunch, The service was good and friendly and lots of oversight by the hostess/manager. She was very attentive and helpful. We will return.
The server that I had took entirely too long to attend to us. We were there 3hrs for brunch in large part because there were large gaps in service. There was so much time in between our starter (smoked salmon) and getting served our entree, that she totally forgot my order. She did quickly remedied the situation but to be honest by this time we both had lost our appetite
Underwhelmed by the responsiveness of the service and wait staff. The food was good and high quality, but the service killed the appeal.
We were sat without a drink menu, like all of the tables around us and had to ask for it twice. The table next to us was greeted, and drinks served before we saw a waiter. From there it took a while to get our drink orders so drinks came out halfway through our meal.
For a place that’s highly touted, this was an underwhelming experience.
Dylan was our server and he was exceptional. Our smoked salmon BLT was delicious besides the over use of horseradish that was almost unbearably spicy. Mac and cheese was delicious. Lobster bisque was a pretty presentation, yet overall flavorless with a few pieces of over cooked lobster.
We decided to make a Sunday Funday and head to the Moshulu for Sunday Brunch. The day was magnificent, the food was delicious and the server, Nicole, was spot on! The endless mimosas were, indeed, endless, and there was no rush to get us on our way!
I recommend this spot for a guiltless indulgence, as the prices were a little high... but with the whole of the day, worth it!
My mom and I vacationed in Philly. Unique experience! Glad I found it online! Server was great and I loved the music. A gorgeous restaurant which I posted on Facebook. I wish we had something like this in Cleveland ... Great place to watch a ball game, for a date ... for a history buff!
Beautiful location and dining room. Table service was very good. Reception Staff is worthless. If you want to sit outside, they don’t take reservations, you have to talk to at least 3 people to find out if you can, and none of them seem to have any idea of what their job is - to seat people.
It’s not a good value, but that’s obvious given the spot. The wine list is amazingly well curated, if expensive (even by Philadelphia standards). Again, not surprising about the price, but we were very surprised at how good the list actually was. Food is fine. Location, ambiance, and table service are the reason to return.
The wife and I have never been to Moshulu, though we always drove by there whenever we take cruises or tool around in that part of the city. So for this date night I said what the heck, let's give this overpriced joint a try and see if it's worth it. The wait staff was nice, albeit not as responsive as I'd have liked for an upscale joint, the food was decent, portions weren't too giant, and our tummies were satisfied. The fries were especially yummy.
In all, our 4 appetizers and 2 drinks cost about $93 (before tip). Oh yes, I am not kidding. They charged us $5.50 for a glass of Sprite, for instance. That's FIVE DOLLARS above wholesale. I call it the "Upscale Dining Ambiance Tax"!
Being the practical person I am, no single meal-for-two is worth almost $100 unless it includes unicorn tears, fresh West African giant snail flown in same day, or a free massage session (with or without Happy Ending) from the big-busted waitress. However my wife LOVED the ambiance and the less-than-chaotic Sunday evening atmosphere. We were in and out within 2 hours. Took a walk by the pier, and drove back home. It was a lovely low-key night. Give Moshulu a shot... just make sure you can afford it, LOL!
Haven't had a bad meal here yet, and the ambiance is second to none in creative coziness! I often bring out-of-town guests here and they are always impressed by the ships elegance and rustic charm! I hope it sticks around for many years! A real gem in a city of great restaurants!
The service was awful. We waited forever, for drinks. We were rushed the entire time by staff. We weren't even done eating and someone would come by and try to take our plates. Not to mention the only good thing we had to eat was the crab mac n cheese. The steak I had was chewy and I was told it would cut like butter. My boyfriends fish didn't flake or cut without a knife and it was dry. I was highly disapointed in my experience and I will never go back.
I am glad that I ate at the Moshulu. How ever the steak I ordered was no worth the price I payed. I odered the steak medium rare, it came out medium well. When I pointed it out to the waiter he insisted that it was cooked correctly and that he could send it back but the steak would cold and raw in the middle. For a sixty dollar steak you don't argue with the costumer! The truffle oil fries and blueberry pie where awesome. It would not be high on my list to return.
We were celebrating my fiance's birthday and decided to come in for a nice brunch. I've dined at the Moshulu for brunch once before, but again, was beyond delighted with the food, view, and the above-and-beyond service from our server, Gary.
Thanks again for a wonderful Sunday Brunch!
