too much for little food – My husband and myself ate in this place two weekends ago. the prices were outrageous for the little portions of food we had. we hang out on atlantic ave once in a while figure lets give them a chance 24 bucks for two people eating sorry one chance is enough.
too much $ for the portions they offer – My wife and myself happen to live near this place we figure we give them the benefit of the doubt it just so happens that for the portions we were given too little for the money we paid and the burger was too small didnt feel like a burger. It took too long to get served we didnt have all day. sorry we rather try other places in the future!
love the moxie spot – great for children and adults the moxie spot has a great ambiance and is cozy spot the food is relativly inexpensive,like the steak which is organic and the chile prawns shrimp is the best. the ideas for food are creative and tasty (sweet potatoes fries are highly recomended) the bagles are order fresh every morning and unless your ready to have red velvet cupcakes or any other desert dont go therethere (which is to die for dont go)
go to the moxie youll have fun
Great idea, shoddy toys, limited food availability – I've now been to Moxie Spot with my 18mo and husband on two occasions. I think it's a fantastic idea, and I love the music and story time events. However, on both visits, the restaurant has been out of key items on its menu. My most recent visit for breakfast found them without fruit salad and yogurt: staples in a toddler diet. I know there are going to be growing pains--and these things happen--but I mentioned it was the second time for us. The staff member's response was quite rude in return. In addition, it doesn't seem like the toys are ever cleaned. I know it's extremely difficult to keep them in pristine condition--especially since hundreds of kids are touching them every day--but there were a few in dangerous conditions for a toddler (i.e., loose pieces, chips, etc.). Again, I think the concept of Moxie Spot is a great one, but there are some kinks that still need to be worked out.
The Moxie' Spot – I found Moxie's Spot to be an adult oriented restaurant featuring a variety of grilled or steamed fish and a nice slection of organic chicken dishes. There was also an extensive salad bar that could be either a side salad or an entire dinner entree for devoted vegetarians.
The food appeared to be authentic , good tasting and mildly organic,
MY grilled Salmon with spinach and b
own rice was fresh, dellicious and healthy. Most of the entrees averaged betwwen$!3 to $17. Reasonale for New York,
One checks off your chosen items on a printed menue form and presents this to the the cashier, She rings up yur bill and places the orddr with the kitchen.
Within a few minutes your food is delivered to your table.
I was there about 8:00 PM on a Monday evening.The other diners appeared to fom the neighborhood and tended to be in their 20's and 30's with an aolder middle age coujple eating there,too.
I understand that during the day a more children's oriented menue can be offered to the chilren attending the day care nursey school located on the second floor of the restaurant.
The proprietor of the restaurant , Nat Rubin, has transformed the place into a delighful nautical themed eatery. The site used to be a large hardware store owned by my faher and his two brothers.
I felt extremely happy and peaceful eating at Moxie's Spot. I felt my fathers soul would be resting easy seeing how Nat has transformed his store into a lovely restaurant on the first floor and a delightful chldrens day car faciitiy on the seconf floor.
I hope the reataurant becomes a pillalr for the local community just a my Dad''s hardware stpre was in its days.
Reommended to the owner that the take out and home catering be expanded.
This Brooklyn Heights equivalent of Chuck E. Cheese will feed kids' imaginations--and their parents' bellies. – In Short
Though it won't teach children good table manners, the Moxie Spot's two sprawling dining rooms drip with distractions, from the child-sized front door to the playroom. At the counter, low-key moms and dads take a tray while sorting through an eclectic menu of basics in modest portions. Macaroni and cheese ($5) and pizza ($4.75) line up next to top sellers such as the spicy Thai wings and house-made donuts, though the $18 grass-fed steak and fries plate seems destined for a more mature palate.
