A dinner at Moxy is an experience. Don't plan on rushing through and running off to the theater if you want to savor the full event. Meals are truly tapas style. Ordering is done in stages. Our fantastic server Nick said we would want three...More

Our food was oily and unappetizing. The flavors were bland and our server seemed resentful when we didn't order more food. Please drop the "you should order xx number of dishes per person" speech, it's just so outdated.

We sat upstairs and loved the creative layout; we were able to look downstairs and felt the energy of the place. The tapas were fun and delicious, with many interesting choices. The four of us had the rarebit, potatoes, ravioli, burgers, chicken thighs, mushrooms, croquettes...More

The food was great- they are up front and honest that when you order what is ready first comes first! Love honesty! Some great craft beers! A place to go and have small plates to share or not and enjoy some great food!

Moxy is a restaurant. The Sheraton is one of the many lovely hotels in Portsmouth. Please re-read the various reviews. I am a visitor to Portsmouth, not a business owner there
