Meddlesome Moth Ratings and Reviews
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.

Fantastic cocktails and phenemonal food. Loved the stained glass panels of music legends. A great experience all the way around. So good returned two days later
Decent food slow service
Food was decent. nothing awesome. great beer list. Would be better if the wait staff was faster in getting the great beer too you. Seems like you shouldnt have 1 server for multiple tables of 5 or more. Bad management choices.

Let me start by saying our waiter, Tyler was awesome! The ambiance was perfect. And the food was amazing! We had no complaints.
Good but not great
We have been to "The Moth" many times. The number of beers on tap is amazing. This was our youngest son's 21st birthday. Gotta get a "flight" Our waitress was new so she knew very little about anything. Very attentive and very nice, she had to go and ask someone for info when asked. The Moth Balls were as good as ever, but the rest of the food was below par, including the mussels which were dry, with no broth to dip your bread in. It's a fun place to go with friends and beer drinkers to try new finds. Our previous visits have all been better than this one. Will certainly go there again. Always give a second chance.
We were very pleased with not only the service, but the food was oh so scrumptious!!!!!
Great service but meal was disappointing
My husband and I came here for a special occasion dinner and have eaten here many times. While our server was excellent and did great a job explaining specials and giving suggestions on different items, we were disappointed with our main courses. We both ordered a steak medium rare. The veggies (including mushrooms flown in that day and baby carrots) were great, but the steaks were unevenly cooked. Parts were completely well done. Overall, the flavors were good but we know we have had much better meals here. Maybe we had high expectations, but I think next time we will stick with tried-and-true menu items.

Great food and service. Tends to be a bit loud but that's the price to pay for an establishment that brims with patrons constantly. I dine here regularly because the food and service are always on point.

We got a reservation for Easter brunch. However, was not told that Easter brunch ended at 3pm and our res was for 3:30. They say us outside and at times we thought they forgot we were even there. Empty drinks and etc. food just ok. Server was polite but not really paying much attention.
Great food but service this time around was SLOW.
I've been to Meddlesome Moth at least half a dozen times or more. Usually service is good to excellent. This time we had reservations at 6 pm so this was before the night time crowd appeared. It took us 3 hours to finish dining! Granted, we were talking and could have wrapped up in 2 hours with less chatter. But we sat there for a long time for our drinks to even come and we finally had to flag down our waitress after waiting for 30 min simply to take our orders. We all placed our individual orders and she brought out 1-2 at a time without much attention to who ordered what. My friend who is a vegetarian got all of her orders out before any of my dishes came. I ordered a salmon dish as my main course and it was the last item to arrive and everyone had finished eating their plates. I understand that many of the dishes are for sharing but that does not mean everyone will be sharing their food. So I would suggest that the wait staff ask about this before making the assumption. Food is really good so I have no complaints about this. Also this time around, the bacon lollipops (which are my favorite), were HALF the size of what they usually are. I hope that this is not going to be the norm. That was very disappointing.

Dinner is served on shared plates, but you can also order traditional individual plates. Every dish we ordered was delicious. Love the stained glass at the end of the dining room, especially "The King!" Great tap beer selection!
Healthy and straightforward
As the title says, the food is simple, straightforward and delicious. The service was acceptable and the prices for lunch are extraordinarily reasonable for the area. Add the free valet parking, this was a great lunch value.
Lively, great beer selection and food
This was my second visit to this great spot in Dallas. Excellent food quality with extraordinary service. Highly recommend sitting at the bar as the professionals know every detail of the many beers on tap and make good food recommendations.

Great brunch spot
Friendly but sometimes delayed service. Our party was able to converse but not without talking at top volume. Of course, food was excellent. Every dish was beautiful and quickly devoured.
My wife treated me to an awesome meal experience with great atmosphere. Wine selection was good and the meal was exceptional. Plan on coming back when my sister comes to town next week.
Always a great time.
Always a great time.
