A word from Meddlesome Moth
The Meddlesome Moth is Dallas’ most interesting full service restaurant, featuring an honest and flavorful chef driven menu, full service bar, and one of the finest selections of hand-crafted beers in the US. In addition to a changing selection of entrees, our small plates are robustly promoted to encourage sharing. We feature local seasonal menu items and offer fresh blackboard specials daily. Our patio area is spacious for dining al fresco, and reservations are encouraged. At 11pm The Moth transforms into one of Dallas' most comfortable bars and remains so until 2am, Thursday thru Saturday. Closing time is midnight otherwise.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "One of the most impressive beer selections in Dallas! Great tapas style food options. Perfect for happy hour or casual dinner. Nice folks behind the bar and waiting on the tables. Make reservations if you are planning to sit at a table during dinner time."

  • "I did not expect to find such a gem in Dallas, the land of barbecue and Tex-Mex. The Meddlesome Moth has fantastically creative, well-edited, selection of food and cocktails as well as interesting selection of wines. I loved the deviled eggs, meat on a stick (I had the lamb), and the brussel sprouts. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu offerings, there when we needed her to be and very pleasant. I am fortunate to dine out quite a bit during my business travels and I have to say that this was one of the best dining experiences I've had in quite some time. I will return to the area again in a month and I'm already thinking about my next visit."

  • "Had lnch and the food was delicious, loved the fresh local ingredients...especially the egg on the cobb salad. Ginger ice cream to die for! The music level was too loud. When we first came in we asked the hostess to turn it down. She complied, but then when more people started arriving the music was turned up again...to the point that my friend and I had difficulty hearing each other."

  • "Where do I start? Beer. There's no comparison. If you like deep, eclectic beer lists, this is your place. You can now build your own flights for $20 (including a selected casked beer!). You should always get two or four shared plates for your group. I suggest the chicken skin chips. Coupled with a flight, buckle up. We had the special, pork t-bone braised in apple cider, with a green apple chimichurri. It was incredible."

  • "This is one of my "go to" places in Dallas. Fantastic beer selection and the small plate menu allows for trying several different dishes. All great. Mussles, flank steak on a stick, Ahi Tuna on a stick were all great. I was pleasantly surprised by the fried tofu dish - possible the best dish we had. Recommended if you are in Dallas."

  • "Brunch for large group was awesome. We all had a good time, and food was wonderful. I initially made a reservation online in which the system would only allow me to book for 6 so i called and spoke to a human to increase the # to 9. However when we arrived their records still had 6, so we had to wait quite a while while they rearranged tables. They made us fit in the end and were very friendly."

  • "We were visiting Dallas and wanted to find a nice rest. This was it.... very interesting list of beers.... flavors never thought on a beer.... highly recomended."

  • "This is the third time in the last year we've gone to the Moth. We go for the food, and this last time the patio, even on June 28th, was pleasant at 6:30pm thanks to the misters. But the service must be the slowest in Dallas. Every time. We ordered food at the same time we ordered drinks to try to combat this, but it was still 90 minutes until we got our last "shared-dish". Additional drinks had to be ordered when the first round was delivered, and even then there were extended periods with empty glasses sitting in front of us. With all that said, the food is good, and the ambience endearing."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "When making the reservation I didn't realize this is a tapas resturant! Excellent selection of tapas including a selection of over 140 beers! Our server was very helpful with selecting items. I recommend starting with a couple of items and adding on as you go...we order 5 items for 3 people and were stuffed by time the last item arrived."

  • "This was a great find and walkable from the hilton Anatole. Knowledgable server who put together a beer flight for my husband. Portions were large so we were glad that we didn't order everything at once."

  • "A very large and diverse beer selection. Eclectic small plates of very good food."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "MM continues to get it right at lunch. You can't go wrong with nearly every entree, but be on the lookout for the excellent daily special board. The service it outstanding. To get to outstanding overall, they've got to find a way to tone down the noise level."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "This is a great place to just try lots of different things. Order a couple of things, try them, order a couple more, repeat. Was a fun evening!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The Meddlesome Mothis a place that I always look forward to - and as usual it did not disappoint. The menu has so many unique items that you rarely find in a gastropub. The Mothinator sandwich was very tasty"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "great beer list with lots of options, 32 beers on draft and a ton more in bottles. Felt some were a bit overpriced but overall not outrageous. Restaurant was crowded and a bit loud but not over the top. Would go back to focus on the drinks as the food was not overly inspiring."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Our server was waiting on too many tables. He tried hard, but we went at least 20 minutes without seeing him. Very attentive at beginning. Then when it took a while for us to decide, 20 minutes later for a food order. "Poor muscley dude""
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We look forward to the MM every time we visit Dallas. I would give it a 5 but we didn't get a seat until an hour after our reservation. Small plates, great beer selection and fantastic flavor."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We waited for over an hour on a reservation and left without dinner. The staff smiled and said they would check on the table and then did nothing."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Obviously they don't want guests to stay too long. I got there around 6:30 PM and the temperature had to be in the 60s. I asked about moving but they said it was the same throughout and that it would get warmer when more guests arrived. More guests arrived and I kept eating as fast as I could due to the extremely cold temperature (and I am not that sensitive to temps). This is the only reason I would never go back. Other wise food was fair/good, service good. Burrrrrrr!!"

  • "I am never disappointed with the quality of food and service at Meddlesome Moth. Small plates are always well prepared. The Catalan Mussels were perfect as was the pork belly. Loved the flat iron steak on skewers. Best beer on draft selection in town. I always take out-of-towners to Meddlesome Moth."

    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "It's a good spot to grab a drink with friends. I generally order the same couple of things to eat, since there isn't a large number of food items that I like. However, it is close enough to both the Medical District where I work and to Downtown where some of my non-medical friends work that it's a good distance compromise, and the beers are great. We all really like the zucchini ribbons but they tend to come out just kind of warm and they get cold and greasy quick. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Cool place, cool vibe. Coming from a bigger city, it was more on par with the look and feel of what I was used to. Most enjoyed the shared plates. Impressive beer selection. I was extremely underwhelmed with our server, but the other servers that brought us out different dishes and explained them thoroughly, with some personality, saved my service rating. Didn't fall in love with it - but I'll give it another try before turning my back."

  • "One of our favorite places to dine whenever we're in the area! The bar and the restaurant was packed but thankfully we didn't have to wait long. Our waitress was super friendly. Love the menu selections and drinks as usual. The lamb tandoori, burger, steak and stout pot pie, and the tofu were delicious for our late night snacking! We regretfully didn't save room for dessert so we'll definitely be back!"

  • "WE HAD A FRIEND HERE FROM FLORIDA. A FEW OF HER OLD DALLAS FRIENDS CAME TOGETHER FOR LUNCH IN MY FAVORITE CORNER OF THE "MOTH". PROBABLY OVERSTAYED OUR WELCOME, BUT HAD A WONDERFUL WAITER (HE FIT RIGHT IN). FOOD WONDERFUL, AS WE HAVE COME TO EXPECT. BEGINNING TO FEEL THAT THE SMALL DINING ROOM NEXT TO THE BAR IS OUR OWN PRIVATE ROOM. WE CAME FOR LUNCH BUT STAYED FOR THE COCKTAIL HOUR. "
