I've celebrated many occasions here such as birthdays, girls nights, etc. I have never once been disappointed. Everything here is absolutely amazing from the food, drinks, and service! Always a must done when in the area.

We've been visiting Moxy for several years and they consistently manage to serve up really terrific food without fail. The menu changes over time, though some things (like the incredible white bean spread appetizer) remain available. Described as "ultra-locavore" the food indeed is for the...More

Really nice variety of small plates here. All were artfully plated and delicious. More about quality than quantity. Service was Spot On.

This smallish place is comfortable and no pretentious. The wait staff were excellent. The wine list intriguing. And the food was even better. The dishes featured unusual combinations, described by other reviewers, that worked well together. I loved the rabbit dishes especially.

Had my first visit to Moxy and I had high expectations based on what I've read. Unfortunately I was very disappointed.  Restaurant was comfortable, service was very good, prices were acceptable, food just lacked definition. Started with the Chili Pepper Cornbread.  This was the best...More

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
