Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by freelyelee Beautiful faucet with a few shortcomings
Overall this is a quality faucet that could be 5 stars with a few changes/additions from Moen.
- This is a beautiful faucet. It's substantial in weight and has a very elegant look. Very classic and timeless. The hand sprayer is also metal with a good heft to it, which is rare.
- It looks expensive (as it should for the price). But it's a really nice, mirror-like chrome (not the weird have brushed/half chrome look you sometimes see on other less expensive faucets.
- Ships with all the tools you need to install successfully (but not the accessories, more on that later).
Installation: The only installation issues I had were with removing my previous faucet (A nightmare of epic proportions, but that's a story for another time). I actually found installation of this Moen faucet pretty straightforward, though I did run into the same issues as a previous reviewer re: lack of deck plate and need for extra trip for faucet plugs.
- I'm not a huge fan of the image only instructions, but they got the job done.
- This faucet ships with a Moen-specific tool to help screw the nut for the faucet. (Looks like a toilet roll holder) This is extremely helpful as the basin wrench I have would not fit in the limited space I have under the sink. Word to the wise: KEEP THIS TOOL. Do not lose it. Guard it with your life. I was missing this tool for the faucet I was trying to uninstall (different brand) and it was a nightmare.
Accessories: Given the cost of this faucet, I agree it should come with the deck plate. A bit of online research shows the deck plate for this faucet can be purchased for anywhere between $20 and $40. Seems a bit steep. Every other faucet I've purchased at various (lower price points) have shipped with this.
- That said, Faucet hole covers (purchased at any hardware store) are ~$3/4 bucks a piece and look just fine in my opinion. But this is personal preference.
- Hand sprayer: As a previous reviewer mentioned, the hand sprayer does not sit flush in the holder (see photo). It's not a huge deal and may be due to the stiff supply line, but it doesn't look clean. This may just be my OCD talking, but it's worth a note.
- A better solution would have been a magnetized sprayer/holder OR the inclusion of a weight. (I'm using a handful of heavy washers as a temporary solution, but may try and order a weight to use instead.)
Add a deck plate and a sprayer weight and this is a great faucet.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Looks great, beware of installation
I just finished installing this today. I wanted to write this while my memory is still fresh. Let me start off by saying the faucet itself looks good. Installation was one the most difficult I've ever done.
The first thing you need to know is this does not come with a cover plate. So if you have a 3 hole sink (most of us do) you will have to either buy the matching cover plate or buy the universal plugs they sell at most stores. This added about 40 mins to my installation time since I had to run and get those. A faucet that costs nearly $500 and doesn't come with this common piece makes no sense to me. I have no idea how much the actual cover plate is because it probably has to be ordered. Add to this the copper nut that holds it to the sink is not loose enough to thread by hand then just tighten so it takes 1 person to hold the faucet while the other tightens the nut. The instructions offer nothing more then pictures, there are literally no written instructions.
I also am not to happy with the way the sprayer sits in its holder. Doesn't seat completely so it is sitting at an angle. This may get better as the supply line gets less stiff, time will tell. There also was a chrome piece that covers the plastic housing under the faucet handle that was loose and wouldn't allow the handle to function properly until I seated it back into the housing. If this continues to come off it is going to become a problem.
So overall if this looks like it would fit in with your décor the faucet itself looks high quality, however be prepared for a rather difficult installation

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LCpalmbay luxurious
The chrome finish is high quality and easy to keep clean. I love the one handle to adjust the water, more convenient than a two handle in my opinion. The high arc is practical when washing large pots. The side sprayer is very useful. The traditional look would look good with many kitchen styles. I can't speak for installation, a plumber did the install. All in all a very nice faucet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JamesC Good quality. Adds a luxurious touch of class to my otherwise lackluster sink.
Installation of the Moen Weymouth single-handle faucet with its braided stainless steel flexible supply lines was easily accomplished with the included mounting tool and common hand tools. This replaced a faucet with two handles. I mounted the side sprayer in one of the holes and plugged the other with a faucet hold cover that I purchased at Home Depot for a few dollars. Installation was straight-forward and easy with the included instructions. Most of the time was spent dealing with removal of copper pipe water line connections that had corroded. My faucet holes are cut close to the backsplash, but I‘m still able to rotate the handle to achieve the full range of temperatures. The approx. 6-inch spout swivels side-to-side to reach both sides of my double-basin sink while the single handle is capable of providing hot or cold water. The faucet’s high arch goose-neck design combined with a deep sink provides ample space for washing large pans. Matching side spray works well, providing a strong and steady stream of water for rinsing. Chrome finish is easy to clean and resists fingerprints and water spots. I installed this faucet and side sprayer a few days ago and already have received many compliments from friends and family. Adds a luxurious touch of class to my otherwise lackluster sink. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PhantomJSH Old World Style with High Tech Functionality
Upon first glance, my option of this faucet was "Wow, this is fancy. It must be incredibly expensive". When in reality, this faucet (while definitely fancy) was set at a very reasonable price point. The classic look combined with modern functionality definitely filled the void I had in my old world styled kitchen.
The unit itself is solid construction and very sturdy. A little challenging to install at first (admittedly my first attempt at ever installing a faucet) I was soon relieved to see that the instructions presented everything I needed to install without much difficulty.
The single handle allows for an effortless flow between hot and cold water without the need for multiple knobs. Both the faucet and sprayer offer a high pressure flow of water that is definitely impressive especially compared to other faucets I've seen on the market.
In the short time I've had this faucet installed, I have already received multiple compliments and inquiries on where it can be purchased.
All in all, I am very pleased with this faucet. This combined with Moen's excellent customer support has been a very positive experience. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ccreviewer Weymouth Faucet is Fantastic!
I love everything about the Moen Weymouth kitchen faucet. The spot resist stainless finish is superb. This style looks great in our cottage/shabby chic home. The water pressure is perfect. The faucet is easy to maneuver and the height is nice for filling pots. I like the single-handle better than a 2-handle faucet. This is a quality faucet. If we had a marble countertop, we may have considered a different finish, but the stainless goes perfect in our kitchen. I've only used the side sprayer a handful of times and it works well.
