Not Overly Impressed

I have to say, this restaurant was hyped quite a bit to me. The commercials, reviews on other sites, and even comments from friends and family.

I went for lunch and I left completely unimpressed.

First, I think the restaurant takes itself way to seriously. It's in the middle of a business park - some of its neighbours include Costco, Swiss Chalet, and Selloffvacations.com. It's hard to be upscale in that environment.

The servers were dressed to the nines, mostly in short skirts, low-cut tops, and pumps. I'm sure the eye candy helps sales a bit, but it's too bad they focus on looks rather than ability. Our server was inattentive and actually fairly rude near the end of the meal. It wasn't busy at all, and we barely asked for anything - definitely nothing out of the ordinary.

The atmosphere is upscale. The bathrooms are insanely gorgeous. The decor is quite nice. I just couldn't shake the feeling that it was all a bit too much though. If this place was tucked into a nice location downtown, and the building had actual character, I think it would be a lot better... This location is just too new and "created." Fake, I guess.

This would all be moot if the food blew me away, but it really didn't. I couldn't believe the prices we were paying for the food that was in front of us. Absolutely ridiculous. Maybe some of the fancier dinner entrees are worth the crazy cash, but believe me most of the menu is not.

I'll give Moxie's three stars, only because it is trying to change the chain restaurant landscape a bit. I just feel people are flocking to this place because they feel fancy eating there and can brag that they blew a bunch of money at Moxie's rather than Jack Astor's. To me, they're all the same. They're mostly c@!p.

Moxie's always delivers
August 04, 2014

We first experienced Moxie's almost 15 years ago in BC, and we were so pleased when one opened in Dartmouth Crossing. We are always welcomed and treated as valued guests. The food is fantastic! And the drinks are professionally made!
We dined for our anniversary this week and truly enjoyed the mohitos and margaritas with an appetizer of Potstickers. That... more

good place for a business lunch
July 10, 2014

Nicely located restaurant for business purposes. I'm never disappointed in the food choices, and they generally have a decent daily special - as opposed to the tired old soup and sandwich.
The quality, overall is good, and well presented. The wait-staff are attentive; and, at lunchtime at least, although always busy; noise levels, are low enough that conversation is possible... more
