Excellent!! Second time we’ve eaten at Moe’s. A lot of restaurants raised their prices during and after Covid, but they also drop the quality. I can tell you that quality is always premium at Moe’s. The food is excellent, with substantial portions, and there’s no skipping on the sides. This is a great place to eat

I’m honestly not sure if the recent reviews are fake or not, but this place is not good at all I’m sorry. First off when you can get any time reservation on a Sat night day of, you know there’s a problem. Prices are high even for a good place. The music is some guy playing songs on an electronic keyboard from the 50’s and 60’s. It’s like you’re stuck in a bad leisure suit Larry movie. Food was not good. All the fish tasty fishy. Other stuff was bland and just uninteresting. My friend who eats anything without complaining wouldn’t take a second bite of his raw tuna tartare. The service was good attentive and they cared it must be hard serving this overpriced bad food. Would love Moe to be successful but overpriced everything and bad food in a climate of inflation and tough times is a failed strategy. Maybe Gordon Ramsey can help.

Was there at 2:30 on a weekday, so the place was empty. But we had excellent service and the food was outstanding. Will definitely return.


Moe’s is a great place to dine. Great atmosphere, great food and entertainment! My husband and I ate here last weekend and decided to invite friends and come back again this past weekend!

We really had a wonderful meal with our friends! Everything was excellent from the food to the service to the ambiance. We can’t wait to go back again!

We made reservations for Saturday night. We were greeted warmly by a lovely hostess and were given a choice of tables.The atmosphere was cozy with a lively vibe. A very competent live piano player was a big contributor. Our server was patient and very helpful with drink recommendations. We were given hummus appetizer on the house which was delicious. I ordered the beet salad- which hit the spot with figs and cranberries. My main dish was the lamb special- very very tasty, with hints of coriander and curry and other exotic species, accompanied with rice and vegetables. The portion was surprisingly large- as if you were home! My water glass was never empty as they are very attentive to fill it. The bottom line: this was a very pleasant, satisfying experience. I'm kicking myself for not going there before as I pass Moes all the time. As we left Mr. Moe came over introduced himself to make sure all was good- that put the candles on the cake! GO there! You'll be pleasantly surprised!Parking: no problem parking


I cannot express how horrible the customer experience was at this establishment. Whoever Freddie is to this restaurant couldn’t have been more rude and disrespectful to a patron. This is not an inexpensive restaurant by any means, and Freddie thought it more important to open up a glass door that was on top of the bar table my friend and I were seated at to let someone out to smoke a cigarette, then to listen to me asking him not to let the below freezing air on to us as we were seated. He found it appropriate to scream at me in the middle of the bar. You would think not opening a non exit door in the coldest weather of the season (18 degrees at the time) would be a simple request that could be granted but not to Freddie. This was a sliding glass door across the back of the restaurant that opens completely when weather is nice and there is outdoor dining. Not a door that is used for entering or. exiting the restaurant. Clearly disrespecting customers seemed more appropriate. Not to mention there was a door 10 feet away not by my table, or God forbid someone could use the actual entrance/exit door. I hope the owners read this and know just what kind of staff they have. Needless to say, I could never recommend a place that so blatantly disrespects paying customers. The whole situation was absurd.

One thing that I definitely want to point out is the food was very well seasoned. Which is very unusual for a restaurant that draws a more mature crowd. Would definitely revisit even if I'm not a guest at the hotel.Vegetarian options: The chef was prepared to make me something off of the menu that would have met my vegetarian needs. But I went with a house salad and salmon


Lovely everything with wonderful food. The lighting was a bit dim.

Went for dinner and wasn't impressed with my overpriced meal. My beet salad was overdressed and the wine selection was not ideal for wines by the glass. The service was slow with only one waitress for the whole restaurant. I wouldn't recommend unless you're looking for something quick and staying at the hotel.


Met up with a friend for lunch. Food was good, service was great, enjoyed ourselves.


Cozy vibe with a nice bar and live piano. Nice menu with a lot of options and quality food. Service was very attentive.

Everything was absolutely delicious and presentation was top notch! Definitely will be back!


We saw the reviews on OpenTable and couldn’t wait to try this place. I had the tuna tartare. It tasted like it came out of a jar with no flavor. Some lump crab meat underneath. That also tasted like it came from can. For dinner I had the filet mignon tower. It turned out to be 3 1/2 inch steaks piled on top of each other. No flavor and dry as they were so thin. Just under $300 for the two of us. Which I don’t mind spending money if the foods good. Over priced diner, food. My wife had the beet salad and mediterranean kebab. Her views were the same no flavor and cheap cuts of meat. We were paying prime prices and getting less than choice.


It’s in a run down community hotel with an electric piano playing by a piano player. Like something out of a “B” movie. It’s old worn out& burger fries are awful. 2 small TV’s. It needs a gut out-
