Moshulu Ratings and Reviews
Great service with delicious food. The kitchen offered us two small appetizing treats on the house. Both were unexpected and quite good. The Vouvray was delicious and priced well. The whole experience was inviting and relaxing. I will definitely be back for more.
I have eaten at this restaurant years ago, but my husband has not. I thought since we were staying in the city that night it would be a nice place for him to experience. Although, my food was good....I was a little taken back by the price of my scallop dish and only received two scallops. My husband had the salmon dish. His fish was cold. We are not big complainers, so we dealt with it. It's not like we go there all the time. I just wish his first time would've been a better experience for him. There were only two other tables in the restaurant with us, so I don't think anything should've come out cold. I've been in the restaurant/hospitality business for thirty years. If the price is a little high, as long as the food is up to the standards of the price, we don't mind paying. Nice restaurant, just a disappointing experience.
The service was impeccable, and you just can't beat the view! I was surprised it wasn't much busier for a holiday weekend on a beautiful weather day, my guess is they OUTPRICE themselves. There brunch is really good, not a lot of food for the steep price though. At $40 for the 3 course brunch it's far more then anything in the area. It's was nice to get the $14 bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary's though.
Went here because a friend told me it was the best place to eat by Philly. Definitely was not disappointed! Went here with my boyfriend and we both were blown away by the atmosphere and romantic vibe. The food and drinks were incredible along with the service. Strongly recommend all of the appetizers and the drinks were delicious as well. Definitely will be going back!
I took my wife here for Valentine's day. It was the first time either of us had visited this restaurant and the service and view was excellent. It's a gorgeous walk along Spruce St Harbor Park from the Hilton, where we were staying, so that was a great bonus. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back.
Overall, I thought it was lovely. The food was great and the drinks were even better! I've been wanting to go there for so long and I finally have and it was just as I expected! Our service was very good and our food was even better! Plus, I thought it was going to be a lot more expensive than what our bill was! Would definitely come back again!
Wonderful setting aboard an historic sailing vessel in Penn's Landing near the City's historic district. Food was exceptionally well prepared and presented. I had the beet salad and duck. My wife had sushi and shrimp and scallops (off menu). Cocktails were perfectly prepared and the apple tort for dessert was the perfect thing to top off our dinner. Although we were there over a holiday weekend, we were seated on time and we never felt rushed. Our service was impeccable. This is one of the pricier restaurants in Philadelphia, but the food, service, and ambiance were well worth it. This was our first visit to this establishment and we will return.
My wife and I had a great time to celebrate my birthday and a late Valentine's Day. The meal was outstanding. The filets were so tender and cooked exactly how we liked them. We were not rushed at all and our waiter was very attentive. We had a great time and will definitely go back soon.
We had an intimate V Day celebration aboard the Moshulu that was perfect!!! I cant say enough about our entire experience, not only was the food fantastic but the entire "crew" went out of their way to show us an amazing time. Milan? was by far the best server we have ever had! He was charming, sincere and knowledgeable. The ladies that greeted us were full of smiles, even the young Man who delivered our food had a charming way about himself. Hats off to the management/owners for such a well trained staff.
Everything was absolutely fantastic. Our server Fernando was hands down one of the best we have ever had. He and the Assistant General Manager Chris made my girlfriend and I feel like we were the most important people in the room. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
Over priced, $370.00 for 2 people and the food wasn't completely cooked. Short menu for Valentine's day and the kitchen could not keep up. Better off going to Outback!! Turned out to be a huge disappointment. Would not recommend to anyone. Don't mind paying for 5 star dining when it's 5 star. This doesn't even deserve 1 star.
We had a great dinner, and waiter service was excellent. Food also exceptional. The pricing was way over the top and that will keep us away for next time. It was a special menu only so we knew it was going to be expensive, $125pp not including taxes/gratuity. Also parking was $17 and not reimbursed. For a Valentine's dinner for my sweetheart price was not a concern.
We enjoyed a wonderful brunch yesterday! 8 very close friends and family get together a few times a year and dine somewhere special. The Moshulu is truly a special place. They are in the middle of renovating their entire restaurant, but it did not affect our experience. The food was outstanding!! The kindness that we received from their staff made an enormous impression on all of us, so much that we all agreed to make the Moshulu our next get together. Parking was the only negative, it's $17. Next time we will car pool.
A spectacular evening, party of 6. Scenic view of the waterfront, a very unique setting aboard this ship. Attention to detail was wonderfully paid, as we never felt rushed, handcrafted cocktails to start, followed by complete decadence start to finish. Starters of fresh hummus and artisan cheeseboards with cured meat. The entrees were diverse as the table had melt in your mouth crab cakes, duck breast, scallops, and yellowtail tuna. Desserts were handcrafted from icecream to banana creme brulee, butterscothc, chocolate, coffee and more! It was truly a smorgasbord, a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. We cannot thank Steven and Jake enough for treating us all like old friends! The ship has some amazing history and can be seen as you are allowed and encouraged to explore parts of the ship and see many photos and historical documentation of this vessel. I can only imagine what it takes to make this happen! We are thankful and blessed to have had such a great dining experience with you, and hope to do it again! If you go...and you must...get reservations, ask for the scenic view of the waterfront, and make sure to explore the ship!
Came here this past weekend for Valentines, it was wonderful! It had great food, the staff is friendly and attentive. The scenery was amazing eating by the water. The bridge lit up was beautiful. My date and I enjoyed this very much. We will be coming back for sure!
We really enjoyed this more than expected. We've lived in the area our whole lives but neither of us had been to Moshulu. I always viewed it as better for tourists in town or a place for a special event/occasion and assumed it would be slightly over priced for what you get food-wise due to the bonus of the scenic view. We had a coupon and we figured since it was valentines day weekend, why not check it out for a nice romantic evening. Reservations for 6:30 and the boat was nearly empty! (our dream! we don't like large, noisy crowds). We were seated in the back by the window facing the ocean which was lovely. Staff was very kind and professional. We were served on the house chef tastings. Drinks were great. Short rib dumpling appetizer was delicious! and both of our entrees were great! He got the bleu cheese swordfish and I got the scallops and pork belly. The spaghetti squash was a little meh, but I wouldn't have wanted anything heavier due to the pork belly. The tables filled in more as we ate so it definitely wasn't dead there - another good sign. All in all, a great time and better than we thought it would be. We both agreed that if we were going out for a higher $$ meal together, we would consider Moshulu again. Neither of us felt prices were outrageous for the food, service, and atmosphere that was provided (and we're both in our 20s!).
Moshulu is a historic restaurant located in and on a ship ported in Philly. It has outstanding staff, phenomenal food, and a cozy, professional/romantic atmosphere. Definitely worth the price, and a great spot for a business meeting, date, or special occasion. I have spent my last 3 anniversaries there, and plan to spend 50 more.
My girlfriend and I were here for our 1 year anniversary and we were completely taken back by the outstanding service, food and perfect ambiance of this restaurant. Our waiter was Miljan and we couldn't have asked for a better one. He was very polite and even surprised us with a few special dishes and a couple glasses of delicious champagne to cheers to our one year. It was easy to see how serious both him and the rest of the staff were about service to all their customers. This is the perfect spot for anyone looking for a romantic dinner. Kudos to you Moshulu!!! 🥂⚓
The food was excellent. The service was very prompt and attentive. The entire staff was welcoming and gracious. Highly recommend the duck. They even gave us a complimentary dessert being that it was our anniversary and it was delicious. Highly recommend and will very likely be dining there again.
My boyfriend Shaun and I were celebrating our 6 years together and we couldnt have been happier with Moshulu. Our waiter's name was John. He was extremely nice and personable. We had such a great experience and will definitely recommend the restaurant to others!
Thank you again for making our 6 years together so special.
This was my 3rd visit and my best! We visited for my wife's birthday. We arrived early and we were seated early. No wait! Table had a great view of the river and city. Our sever, Miljan, was very pleasant and engaging. Our meals were delectable! I had Fried Chicken and my wife had the crab cake. After our appetizer of calamari, which was the best I have had. I couldn't finish my entrée. Also, thanks to Miljan for the extra birthday touches of card, special appetizers, Champagne and dessert! A very classy birthday dinner out!
We were celebrating our anniversary and they made the experience one we won't forget. First off, the food was out of this world. And the waiter was very friendly and gave us space and time to eat and enjoy our meal. We received a hand written card congratulating us on our anniversary and wishes for many more, free champagne and the chef wrote "Happy Anniversary" on the desert plate in chocolate syrup. I had the prime rib burger that had this bacon onion jam on it and now any other burger just won't be the same. Seriously though, great date night place for your loved one or if you're looking to impress a new love.
We went to the Moshulu to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Our children gifted us an entire weekend in the city to do whatever we wanted. For years we have always wanted to dine at the Moshulu, and we finally did so. They could not have treated us better!! There was a hand written card waiting for us at the table, then the waiter brought us a glass of champagne to start. They also sent us some extra food from the Chef. Our food was fantastic! Our waiter was amazing! This was so special, we will never forget it!
We had a fantastic brunch!! The Moshulu is really quite unique with all its history. The young ladies that greeted us were genuine with their pleasant nature. Our server was courteous, knowledgeable, professional and personable(very hard to find no a days). The parking was $17, a nice lot with easy access but steep price for an afternoon brunch. I would like to return for dinner at some point.
Went for the 1st time this weekend. Food was great, not a huge selection but each dish had a lot of detail. I found the prices to be about average for this type of restaurant. The service was wonderful. Valet parking is a little steep at $17.00 but I do realize the restaurant does not own the lot. My one odd complaint would be that the tables seemed crooked, almost on a slant...actually the floor seemed that way. And there is some soft surface under the tablecloth which made our drinks sit uneven. They were actually tipping while full and I had to drink quickly you lower the level in the glass so it wouldn't spill. It wasn't a huge problem just a little odd. I would definitely return, probably in the summer so we can sit outside upstairs.
I had the pleasure of dining on the Moshulu last evening and truly enjoyed our evening. From being accommodated for special sitting arrangements to the excellent service provided by our waiter Miljan, the dinner (a first date) was special and memorable. Miljan recommended the Rib Eye and it was a good as he promised. I would not hesitate to send anyone to the Moshulu for a wonderful dining experience especially if they are fortunate enough to be served by Miljan. I look forward to returning especially when the weather is a little warmer to enjoy the outside experience.
