Meddlesome Moth Ratings and Reviews

As always, the food and service at Meddlesome Moth was great for business lunch. The food was prepared well and served timely. We were seated promptly even though we came early than scheduled. The fish and chips were prepared well and were absolutely delicious. Would recommend Meddlesome Moth for lunch or dinner.

Food failed to live up to similar dining experiences in Chicago/NY. Price vs quality of food just wasn't there. Beer menu was solid & waiter was knowledgable. Good for drinks and a snack, looking for a solid dinner? Look elsewhere.

I'm not sure why this restaurant is rated so highly.
The food was ok, but not spectacular - and the service was downright patchy (we had to ask for things more than once) - and the servers seemed overloaded - which is a surprise for a Monday night.
Very friendly though - and as the menu is quite interesting we'd give the place another try if we were in the area.

I have always enjoyed Meddlesome Moth both for the food and for the decor. Fills the perfect niche between casual and fine dining that makes it perfect for business groups and to impress out-of-towners. Craft cocktails and craft beers please everyone. Service is spot on. Can be somewhat pricey and some more affordable options on the menu would be appreciated, but if you've got the coin, you can't go wrong. Truly stands out in the Dallas dining scene.

I dined here with a friend and we decided to just order the plates as opposed to individual entrees (we like to share).
We ordered the Crispy Duck Wings, Catalan Mussels, Collard Greens and the Brocollini.
I thought everything was really flavorful - not too spicy. We both agreed that the Catalan Mussels with the Spanish chorizo was excellent. The "Crispy Duck Wings" were also excellent but they were not wings so much as they were drumsticks - still delicious!
I loved both the Brocollini and the Collard Greens, although my friend felt the collard greens had a little of a "sweet" taste she wasn't wild about (she did finish them though).
Service was really excellent - very friendly and attentive staff - Kudos to them especially since the place was packed.
Highly recommend - although - a pretty lively spot - so if you're hoping to have a quiet dinner - wrong place for it (at least on the Wednesday night we went there).

Chicken on the Cobb salad was overcooked and tough. Egg was over-boiled and dry. Music was too loud to have a conversation (they did eventually turn it down). Second bad experience with MM lately. It used to be much better...not sure what's changed.

We went for weekend brunch based on the f I'll brunch menu posted on Opentable as well as the restaurant website. Imagine our surprise when we were given lunch menus because they no longer offer the full brunch menu on weekends. Why would Opentable and the restaurant website still show the full brunch menu as available? Very misleading. Also, restaurant not very busy but our food was cold and French fries were old.

I've reviewed the MM several times since we dine there about 4-5 times a year. Taking this opportunity to call about the fantastic tofu dish. It's got amazing flavors and its mixed with veggies that have great crunch. Take a risk!

fantastic & eclectic draft beer selection & a fun menu of "farm to table" style small plates.
get the tuna on a stick (like ahi lollipops) for an appetizer to share.
perfect location for pre-post games @ AAC (Mavs/Stars).

This restaurant has become one of my favorites for the atmosphere and the food. Beautiful stained glass panels highlight the ceiling and bring an eclectic feel. If you're a fan of mussels, the Thai-Curry are some of the best I've ever had. The "Flight of the Moth" craft brew sampler is a must have. If you want one of the best waiters then ask for Blake. You will be treated like royalty!

I have been here many times with both friends and clients. It never disappoints. However, on this visit my daughter and I were a party of two with many larger parties near us. We felt a bit ignored until I made a joke out of it with our waiter.

We dined here several times for brunch (which is just wonderful), but this was our first time for a dinner hour meal. Wonderful assortment of unique daily specials, a menu that offers several shareable items (small- and large-plate), and many regional / seasonal late-summer picks. The service was friendly and offered several helpful tips. The surroundings are comfortable and interesting. A minor complaint is the music volume — fine for later on Saturday night, but too loud for 5:00 pm diners to converse. We will definitely be back.

We arrived before the place opened, and were second in line. We were still asked if we had reservations. My thoughts were, "Why the joint is empty!" It stayed half full throughout our dining experience. The workers in the kitchen were the best, because they granted some requests. The greeter and server had forced smiles and lacked real people skills.

Do not recommend MM for brunch. Limited menu. We tried 4 of the 10 items. The really tasty item, the Cinnamon Rolls, are served in a small skillet and if they had been served even slightly warm - would have gone from tasty to incredible. The only great thing about our MM experience was the service - it was outstanding.

The service was terrific. We have been to the moth before. We took a friend there for lunch on a rainy Saturday. Our server was outstanding. The lunch was very good; soup, sandwiches and salad. The décor is quite attractive and unusual. We will return.

We had a server that was mildly inattentive that turned passive-aggressive/majorly-inattentive when we pointed out half way through the meal that she served a bourbon instead of the ordered scotch and had forgotten an ordered soft drink. Sadly, it took us at least 10 minutes to catch her eye to bring this to her attention. It got worse from there. When it was time, it took us nearly 20 minutes to get the check and bring the meal to an end.
That said, we won't hold that experience the restaurant. The food is very good and, on prior occasions, the service has been stellar. We won't hesitate to return and would definitely recommend the Moth.

My husband and I enjoyed a date night at Meddlesome Moth, and everything was wonderful as usual! I really liked the salmon special, and my husband loved his steak frites. We shared the bread pudding and it was absolutely divine. We only waited a few minutes to be seated, and our waiter was very friendly.

Group of 5. Server did not include scallops as requested--prob due to noise level, which is understandable, however, the missing entree took Forever to arrive at table. Not okay. Server stopped twice to say, "the Chef is rushing your scallops." Yeah, right.

awesome experience, food was great
service was excellent, love the shared menu
restaurant too noisy to visit with friends
an item that has bleu cheese on it should always state that on the menu!! one of the items did not and it was a dissappointment to those of us who dislike bleu cheese to find it as an ingredient

Our 34th anniversary! We had people yelling over our heads as bar seating was directly in back of us. Our cheese board was not described by the man who brought it, and not much more by our waitress when I asked her to tell us about the various charcuterie. Service was slow and I even received a desert I did not order ( the one she brought had nuts and my husband is allergic). My spouse asked me not to say anything so I didn't . I was very disappointed. We have been here 5 or 6 times and enjoyed ourselves, but food and service have deteriorated .
