Everything was terrific as usual! James our server made it extra special. We dined outside in the partially air conditioned patio, it was extremely comfortable.

This was my second visit to this restaurant and while the service was really good and the restaurant beautiful and eclectic, I really did not like the food. There was such odd choices and nothing on the menu, that a less adventurous diner could select. I would recommend adding some more "normal" menu items for those people that don't want to order bone marrow or goat cheese. I am not a picky eater - but found myself truly enjoying only the pita bread and drinks.

The only way to do this place is family style. Everything was fantastic, but the ribs had a proble.; I think they changed the way they are made, tasted boiled...mushy is NOT fall off the bone, it's just mushy.

I have been wanting to eat here for a while now, so me and my buddy went here to get some grub. It is really loud, but the food is worth it. The servers are spread really thin, and the bar is very busy so you will be waiting bit for drinks or any extras.

We ordered a few share plates and a few mains. The side plates came up very quickly but the mains took a little long, especially considering what we ordered. The food was delicious. I can't say enough about the "pig and fig." Amazing.. Melts in your mouth. The sweet potatoes were a bit strong on the nutmeg. Cocktails were great too!

This place does not live up to the hype, the food is average at best and wildly expensive. The ambience is good, and the drinks are great but the rest is just mediocre. The "shareable" plates are designed so that you order more than one per person which makes your bill expensive.

1st time Sunday Brunch and it was AMAZING! One of the BEST Bloody Marys! This time was a business lunch and I picked the restaurant. The others thanked me for picking it. Food was off the charts and our server was friendly and on top of it.
Food was awesome as always, everything came out fast but took a while for waiters to come back but nothing awful. Overall very good.
Beer Lovers Haven
Food was good but overpriced for what you got. Good beer list.
Nice dinner before big event
We've been before with groups and to visit the bar for a late drink. It's good for all of those things, but I was interested to see how it was for a night out with my wife before a fundraiser. Bottom line: Pretty great! They seated us at a two-person table by the window overlooking the outside courtyard (which I didn't know existed previously), but it's much lighter near the window. It's a good view of the whole restaurant without being so dark you fall asleep. Specialty beers on tap were great. We got several share plates, which were more than enough for a meal. Would have tried dessert, but we had to run. Will definitely be going back.

Our dining experience was good. We shared as a table an assortment of small plates. The only problem was with the "fishy-ness" of the mussels. The Thai broth was excellent, but the mussels were not good. We have found this to be the case throughout Dallas so it could be a supplier problem. I would not recommend this restaurant is someone is wanting to have conversation; it is far too loud, but all-in-all, we will go there again.
Loved this place

I was not impressed. The food was just okay. Service was not consistent and I don't know that I would ever go back. The menu is lacking. My husband had the rabbit pot pie and all you could taste was the herb in the sauce. Didn't know our waitress name until the check came.
I would visit again and again
They have a very eclectic menu. Tons of different choices that are intriguing and delicious at that! Extremely impressive selection of beers also!
Service very inattentive
Our server seem to forget about us a lot. No one seemed to notice that we didn't finish most of the dishes either -many stinkers. No one offered us refills on our drinks.
A good place for friends to gather, enjoy the beer selection along with some appetizers. Can socialize either in air-conditioning comfort or relax in the outdoor area enjoying the evening. A large selection of beers for enjoying the evening.

I've enjoyed brunch, lunch and dinner several times, but this was a date with a newbie to MM. The service, from greeting to departure, was outstanding. Everybody here has a smile on their face and a "what can I do to make this a memorable experience?" mentality on display. With reservations we were seated early at a prominent table with a view of the entire place. Drinks were offered promptly and were whisked over quickly. After discussing our options, our waitress offered suggestions and confirmed our selections. We chose three shared plates which were all yummy and one of the dessert specials. The newbie said he definitely wanted to add MM to his list of regular places. It will remain on my shortlist as well!

This spot was recommended by a friend. We had drinks in the bar. Service was a bit slow. Went back for dinner and the service was wonderful! The food was excellent as well. Great portions for sharing. Will definitely go back.
Food and atmosphere were very nice. Our server was terrific. Beer was a bit overpriced but everything else was great.
It's a cool, fun spot but our service was spotty at best. In all fairness, our waiter was juggling tables outside and in. There wasn't enough of him to go around. While I respect the originality of the menu I wasn't as crazy about the food as I thought I'd be - at least not for the price. But then I don't eat meat so my choice of entree was salad or shrimp and grits. The walnut salad was fab but the shrimp and grits seemed oily. If there's a next time, I'll order the crab salad for an entree. Sorry to say it, but the cherry cobbler tasted like Pop Tart ala mode. Boo hoo. I was really looking forward to that particular little splurge.
Unique food selections with explosion of flavor
Wonderful selection of food items to share that are unique and festival of flavor. The beer selection is always changing. When crowded the service falls quickly, but recovers when the crowed thin out.

Limited Menu Options
Restaurant is best for those interested in sharing plates. Our server was extremely friendly. The cocktails were good especially the Manhattan but the rest of the food was overpriced.
Energetic crowd for a Sunday morning, so would recommend reservations. Great food, but our server was a bit delinquent. Still would go back and try again.
Great for brunch!

Enjoyed the patio at Meddlesome Moth
Met up with friends of ours for dinner. It was a beautiful Spring evening, and we enjoyed the patio, food and atmosphere. My only complaint is that the service was extremely slow. We finally had to go back to the hostess and ask who are server was. Once we finally got a server, it took another 20 minutes just to get our 1st round of drinks.

First time here. Great beer list. Good selection of plates to try. We had mussels, very nice Caesar salad and fish and chips. Service were friendly and efficient - got us out in time for our show.
Must try for brunch in Dallas!
Loved this place! Decor, food, drinks and service were great! I highly recommend the Whiskey Donut Sandwich! Only thing is that it's a little pricey. Go try it!

For Craft Beer and Craft Food lovers
If you love great craft beers and craft food this is the place to go.
Greatest day of my life, made even better.
I brought my girlfriend here to propose, and the experience could not have been better. The food was delicious, and our server was amazing. He was apparently aware of the proposal even though he was away from the table when it happened, and then brought us a glass of champagne to celebrate. The scallops were cooked to perfection, and bigger than any I have ever seen before. The pork was both crisp and juicy, and the rabbit pot pie was neither thick nor runny. The atmosphere lends itself to both casual and formal dress, and the stained-glass panels add a bit of artistic flare. I will definitely return here often.
