Visited this Moxie's today for the third time this year. The service was very good and so was the food. I had the salmon and avocado cobb salad and my friend had the seared ginger tuna salad. Both were very tasty. The only complaint: the salmon was not fresh, but rather frozen. It had little taste. The white chocolate brownie... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a friend but didn't live up to my expectations. Very trendy. Menu was decent but didn't ask for burger temp so they came out well-done, service was alright but we dealt with multiple servers. Food was good and prices reasonable. I think I would explore other options though the next time we're in Ottawa

Thank Upstatefamily
Management response:

I am sorry to hear that you experience did not live up to your expectations. That is not the standard that we strive for. I do apologize for the confusion with burger temperatures as by law we do have to cook burgers to well done. I hope you enjoy your time in Ottawa and on your next visit I hope... More

Came here for dinner. Food was very tasty. The sushi starter, and teriyaki steak was very good. The fish taco's were okay.

The steak, fish tacos and curried chicken are all very nice. The presentation was great. Service is fast, efficient and friendly. The atmosphere at the restaurant is great.

We brought a friend for dinner on a Wednesday evening. We had made reservations and when we arrived at 6:30 a table in the requested area was waiting. We had asked for the lower area by the windows to try to avoid some noise. The restaurant was busy and nearly all the tables were full. Shortly after being seated our... More

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.

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.
