Conveniently nestled on the fringe of the Central Business District, Moosehead is a mediterranean restaurant and bar serving great foods with fast, fun and fresh ambiance for everyone to get lively and chilled.
Of course after reading reviews about the poor service I expected sub par treatment but surprisingly there was excellent Service ( must have improved with all the reviews of poor service). When we arrived, we were greeted promptly and seated 15 min earlier than our reservation. After deciding on what to order, a waitress waiting patiently near the kitchen took the order and within 15min the food was already arriving( Pork scratchings with beef tartare- highly recommend). An additional order of pita bread was ordered and it came out within 5 min to go with the beetroot and Burrata, which was good but nothing to write home about, I'd definitely skip that the next time I come. The Flat iron steak and potatoes came next and were also both excellent. and Finally the Greek Donuts and my gosh I could three more orders of this, light and cripy pockets of dough with honey, creme fraiche and chopped hazelnuts. wow.
All in all, I'd recommend Moosehead. My date and I had 5 plates to split between us and I have to say that was quite filling, definitely nicely portioned Tapas. The ambiance was cozy and intimate, perhaps a little packed for a Tuesday Night, but it definitely goes to show that the food is worth coming in for.
With much anticipation after reading all the online reviews we went to dine at the Moosehead kitchen (4 people).
Firstly, what we were surprised about was the place is setup as a corner diner, open front shop with bench seats along the wall. More like a burger and fries kind of place - in a good way - but that is not the picture portrayed clearly on their website. so if you haven't been there before and plan to go , it is a jeans, shorts, t shirt kind of place.
Secondly, food is creative and nice. we had almost everything on the menu (some stuff two of and was mostly good tasty food). However, they are very busy and when busy, they try to rush some dished to the table. We had to send the chicken back because it was not cooked in the centre (raw actually - gladly we looked before eating).
The down side of the evening was the service staff. They act like teenagers; inexperienced, dismissive and distracted. Somehow bringing down the overall experience to a level where you just want to go up to the counter to order your own food and not have to deal with the painful staff who just can't pull it together in attending to simplest requests and delivering on those.
Overall; a good concept, very rough around the edges and needs to be revised as cafeteria (Kitchen) versus a restaurant.
oh dear, was expecting a buzzy lively place. We got noises and as we sat near the front we got smoke wafting in from outside. The wine list was poor Starters appeared and were good. Then something turned up that we thought was an amuse Boucher.. It wasn't it was one of the mains, pork. It was absolutely tiny. After 5 minutes there was no sign of the other 3 mains, after 10 minutes we gave up waiting for the racks of lamb. After 15 minutes we left after paying for what we had had. As we were leaving the lamb turned up again tiny. So we went to another restaurant and even the person who had had a main course of pork had starter and main and desert and next place which was charging similar prices but actually served food rather than plates with a some crumbs on and had a decent wine list. Just poor!
