  • We recently celebrated our December wedding on The Moshulu and could not have asked for a more hospitable and beautiful venue. From start to finish, the experience was unbeatable. Jake and his team made the planning process so easy and guided us through many of the decisions we needed to make. We were able to drop our decorations off early and the crew set everything up for us! This was so helpful when we had other wedding activities going on in the hours leading up to the wedding. The food and cake was so delicious and beautifully presented. The unique venue with breathtaking views really wowed our guests. I heard again and again how much everyone was impressed with the awesome venue. With having the wedding near Christmas, we also were able to enjoy all the Christmas decorations that the Moshulu used throughout the ship. At the end of the wedding, we were able to just go home and come back the next day for our decorations including my bouquet and the top tier of our cake which they t... Read more

  • Our wedding guests loved brunch at Moshulu. The food was great, especially the salmon. Being on a boat was an experience within itself and adds so much character. The event coordinator Jake was phenomenal to work with. Jake made planning a breeze. We are glad we decided on Moshulu for our post-wedding brunch and felt it was the best value in the city.

  • I loved the Moshulu for our reception venue and working with Jake and Jesse was fantastic! They were so helpful, accommodating, and professional! I'm so sad that it drizzled on our wedding day so our guests weren't able to fully experience the beauty and the views from the Moshulu's top deck! The space was still so pretty and open despite being enclosed due to rain, and the tent/side flaps are nice enough that guests can see outside and still view the city, the water, and the Ben Franklin Bridge. The staff members were great and everything worked out perfectly! Our guests loved how unique of a reception venue it was and couldn't stop talking about the location! I love that so much is included in the cost of the venue and that they're willing to make changes to accommodate your wishes!

  • We just had our wedding at the Moshulu. It was better than I ever imagined. Everyone was so accomodating and responsive to our needs. Jake is excellent and very pleasant to work with. He always responded to our emails right away. Jesse is outstanding as well, he really tries hard to make sure everyone is happy and having a great time. Everyone said how amazing he was. He is very attentive to details and remembering what was important to us. I'm so glad we had our wedding at the Moshulu! It was a wonderful experience of a lifetime!

  • Everything about this place was fantastic and awesome. We couldn't give the Moshulu a better review. They were very accommodating, the setting and scenery are just beautiful. Jake and Jesse were on top of everything and took care of us the entire night. And on top of all of that, we found the value to be much better than any other place we visited.

  • Moshulu was an excellent choice for our wedding dinner! The staff are courteous, accommodating and friendly. The food was excellent and all our guests were pleased. we have eaten at the restaurant many times and will certainly return for anniversaries and special occasions! The location is a perfect setting for photographs as well!

  • I came to the Moshulu after my wedding was cancelled by the nearby City Tavern. I had already booked my hotel and other services in the Old City neighborhood, and had to quickly find another location for my reception. I'm so glad I picked the Moshulu, as the City Tavern did us a favor! A family member had their engagement party on the Moshulu several years ago, so we knew the food and service would be good. Also, the pricing was about average for other venues (we explored a number of options from hotels to inns to the typical "wedding mills"). There are reviews below that talk about a non-responsive person (Christina) and this was my experience (she wouldn't respond to emails for days if not weeks, then voila, she had left, not even telling her clients about who was taking over). Well, it was good riddance because Chris Baldwin took over as sales manager. His previous position was being in charge of the banquets at the events so he really knew his stuff. We loved working with Chris. He... Read more

  • Moshulu was a fantastic venue for our wedding day. Chris Baldwin, the wedding sales manager, was very helpful and accommodating. We had our ceremony outside on the deck and because it was January, Moshulu provided complementary heat lamps to keep everyone warm. The temperature was very pleasant even though it was in the 20s that day. We had a very small wedding (just 10 guests plus the 2 of us) so we were able to use the Captain's dining room for our meal. The server was very good at his job, attentive but not overbearing. The open bar and Moshulu's cake added a nice touch to our meal. It was definitely nice to have these things included in our package so we had less to worry about. (We chose not to have a reception because we don't dance but I'm sure they would have had a nice reception as well). Moshulu was great!

  • They were amazing and they made my day amazing!!! I planned my wedding from the other side of the world, with no option to visit my wedding city until 3 days before the day. From that precarious position, I chose the Moshulu for my venue & food. Over a year of emails and plan-changes and updates, they were incredibly responsive (nearly always answering my emails in detail within a day or so, sometimes within hours) and helpful - I haven't attended many weddings and really had no clue what I was doing and they were fantastic. They were welcoming and sweet for our rehearsal, where my group was boisterous and probably annoying but they were always so accommodating even though we didn't do the dinner there! They made the wedding day itself like a dream come true, better than I would ever have expected. Amazing service, beautiful premises, every stupid thing I asked was done with a smile (like when I asked for bread because my stomach was a little iffy to eat a real meal, our PERS... Read more

  • My wife and I got married at this beautiful venue last summer and came back a year later for our 1 year anniversary celebration. First of all, the unique setting on the boat creates a truly special, romantic atmosphere and we were lucky to enjoy all the flowers which the Moshulu staff set up for mother’s day! Second of all, the service was great and the food and drinks were phenomenal- we received endless compliments from our guests! Finally, Michelle the GM was incredible to work with, she made us feel welcome and valued, and took the time to listen to our feedback from the wedding, inviting us to host our 1 year anniversary at the venue with friends and family.

  • If you want a venue that's unique, gorgeous, has history, and is right on the best views of the city, look no further. My fiancé and I held a slightly larger sized engagement party here, with very much the same elements of a wedding, and the venue blew our minds. We cannot wait for the photos that came out of such a unique venue, our guests had a blast, the food was absolutely amazing (and several of our guests are chefs), the staff is top-notch, all the guests commented on how well they were treated throughout the night. Thank you so much for helping us host the very best event we'd ever been to!

  • We had our ceremony on the Moshulu and loved it. We dealt with Chris throughout the whole planning process and he was awesome. He was responsive and flexible, especially because we kept changing the time. The day of we had Nick as our coordinator. He seemed like he was new, but that only meant he was trying that much harder to do a good job and he really did a great job. We had a rowdy wedding party and he managed them just fine. He catered to me (the bride) and helped in every way he could. Everything ran so smoothly we could not have been happier. Even our guests were amazed at how beautiful and elegant everything was. I highly recommend the Moshulu for your ceremony. I wouldn't have changed a thing.

  • This is a BEAUTIFUL venue. The space photographs amazingly well and the food is spectacular. For us, a memorable, non-ballroom wedding with delicious food and wine and a good party were the most important parts of our wedding. This venue had all of that and then some. We also had our ceremony here, and it was lovely (we got married in front of the wheel!). The event staff were helpful and responsive, and were mostly very willing to work with us on our requests and needs. If we had it all to do over, we would most certainly host our wedding with these folks, but here are a few drawbacks to keep in mind: They do not do a tasting of their menu; you must pay to eat the food. We used a Groupon deal and brought some friends, so it was OK, but in a wedding planning environment where most venues will host you for dinner before you book, this was a little disappointing. Like I said, the food is fabulous, but we only knew that before we booked because we paid to find out. The venue has many leve... Read more

  • The Event Coordinator was not a good communicator - she kept calling & sending info to my business email/phone instead of my personal email/cell phone. She never answered all my questions at once - I always had to write several times or call to get complete answers. She got our guest menu inscription wrong even though I gave her specific written instructions, which she confirmed in writing. She told me my vegetarian guests would have several menu options and they were only given one. She told me my guests would not have to pay for parking, but when we arrived the parking lot did not know of our event. Worst of all, we pre-paid for 27 guests but lost 10 due to Hurricane Sandy and were not offered any consideration for the extraordinary event - not only did we not receive a refund, they still charged us for parking and premiums on the menu (+ tax & gratuities) even though we had already paid more than $600 extra.
