good family outing
Moxie's on Calgary Traill (I haven't tried other locations)is by no means the most original place, but they do provide families with a decent dining experience with a variety of interesting, fresh, well-executed dishes, while still providing the necessary children's meals and crayons. The staff is friendly and the place is clean and nicely decorated. The seating is far apart so you doesn't feel crowded or conspicuous if your kids are occasionally a little loud. The dry ice volcano ice cream sundaes are a nice touch for the kids. You can linger or be in a rush, and nobody minds either way. Each visit the manager came by to inquire about our meals. I would gladly pay a little more to eat here than Boston Pizza.

Impressive Room
An evening with friends in this new South Edmonton Common location was less than expected. The modern surroundings indicate that much thought and expertise has gone into creating this contemporary eatery.

The menu provided a good choice of meals, accompanied by a satisfactory wine list. The Vodka martinis with a twist was created to perfection.

The service must be questioned at this location as the server shift changed during the dinner which commenced at 8:00 p.m.. One server delivered the initial course and drinks, with a second waiter taking the order for the remainder of the meal. The wine order was attended to by a third person. Curiously, the wait staff continued to bring the appetizer, meal and drink orders to the table, but neglected to remove the dishes and glasses which were no longer in use. The inexperience of the service staff was confirmed when the young waiter picked up 3 empty glasses at one reach when requested. Another demonstration of inexperience occurred when empty plates were stacked one atop the others - on the table - before being carried away.

A clue to a perceived shortcoming in this operation was that reservations are not necessary on weekends and Saturdays are said to very quiet nights. The "little barrel" restaurant, a few steps away requires a half-hour wait for a table.

Yes, I would give this location another chance as the west-end location offers excellent service.

A Nice Time
Inside decor is gorgeous, very modern and stylish. Friendly, efficient waiter. Ahi tuna crisp appetizer a bit of a disapointment as it was not seasoned well and portion was very small. Ate it with some added lemon from our drink and lots of salt and pepper. Tandoori salmon salad was great, salmon in particular was excellent. Salad dressing was a bit uninspiring, but overall it was a great salad. Steak salad was also good but needed a little more to it...a bit bland.
Great appetizer menu. Will go again. Lively but not too noisy.

expect little, avoid disappointment
We RARELY eat at feeding stations such as this and my last visit to this Moxie's was a reminder why- the automoton who shoves stuff on plates in the kitchen clearly takes no pride in what comes out. the calamari was essentially all the crap that was left in the deep fryer, the steak on my salad was cold and reminded me a bit of a cadaver, the noodles my dad ordered where overcooked and tasteless and the halibut was dry and overcooked. The only thing good was the service. Won't be back-suggest you don't bother.

Just above average experience
The food was fine, but our server was just average. We were seated inside in the dining room, but the bar was close by and fairly noisy.

We arrived at the restaurant at around 8pm. We had two appetizers, an entree salad, a soda, and a glass of wine. The bill came to around $38.

All in all, it was an average meal.
