    Our first time to mercury chophouse. Service was excellent but I didn't catch his name. He was very attentive and knowledgable of the menu. I had the flounder,much to my surprise the sauce on it definitely had an afterburn to it.(myfault for not asking what the sauce was). The hubby's strip steak was a little tough but still delicious. Let me tell you that peach cobbler for dessert was to die for. That could've been a 3course meal itself. We'll be back again I'm sure.

    Went for restaurant week and they offered a nice and varied menu for it from steak to seafood for $35 each. Also, offered an add-on wine pairing to go with the 3 courses for $50. All in all it was a nice night with delicious food at a reduced price to try the Mercury Chophouse. I gave it only 4 stars for service ONLY because they don't have a hostess to greet you, and takes way to long for anyone to recognize you as a guest, and he appears to be the manager or assistant manager. But while he's chatting up the seated guests, those who come through the door wait 10+ minutes to be recognized. Also, the restaurant was full, but service was still prompt and courteous. Be advised that the atmosphere is very nice, but loud inside when full.

    The service in the bar was chaotic. When we were seated at our table, the service was deplorable. It took forever to get even glasses of water. The food was cold when served, and we got our silverware after the food. One of the wine glasses had 2 chips in it. We were celebrating an anniversary and birthday, and it was such an unpleasant evening.

    It started out great, the owner came by and welcomed us! We were seated and waiter brought drinks and bread. Slowly came the salad. The salad was very good! After that we did not see the waiter for the next 2.5 hours. The only reason we waited this long was because our friends frequent this restaurant. They promised us that this must be due to restaurant week! I will not go back! This was our first time and it was obvious the waiter was a little out of sorts because we ordered the restaurant week menu. We tipped the waiter and walked down the street to the Bird! Service and food amazing!

    We dined here for the first time, and I was pleasantly surprised! The bar menu is unique (try the Texas Sipper!), and the food was great - especially dessert. My lamb chops were a touch salty, but everyone else's items were seasoned well, so it may have just been a one-off. Our server was very good, and I am glad that we tried something new during restaurant week. We will definitely be back!

    Our meal was beautifully presented and delicious. The restaurant was very quiet as it was a Tuesday evening. The atmosphere is dark and romantic with cozy booths and an old club feeling. I'm not sure how romantic it would be if it was crowded though,as the tables are all very, very close together. Service was friendly but slow which was puzzling as there were only 2 or 3 tables being served - as if the staff was a little too laid back since there was no crowd. Overall a very nice dining experience.

    There was NO wait. The wait staff was outstanding and very friendly and attentive. The salads we had (chop salad and wedge salad) were superb. We both got the 8oz. Filet. For the price of 34.00, I expected some sides but none came with the steak - a la carte - although they did throw in a mound of mashed potatoes and they were delicious. For desert we had the creme brûlée. It was the best we have ever had. The ambience was great.

    In Ft Worth to visit son and grand daughter. Got reservations early to minimize risk of 3 yr old granddaughter from interrupting any nearby tables (she did great for the record). Son got steak which had too much gristle, wife and I ordered special filet medallions with sauces. Steak Ok but only one of the three sauces did we care for. One so spicy couldn't even eat. Kids MAC and cheese was fine, they loved it. I was expecting much better for the price. Waitress was very attentive and atmosphere was great but couldn't make up for the over priced blahh food.

    This is our second time at Mercury to celebrate our parents birthdays. We came back because our service and food were amazing the first visit. Not so this time. When we sat down we waited a while for a server and were missing several items from our table like knives, bread plates, etc. Our salad order was mixed up, and there was at least ten minutes between when our first entree was served and the last side was set down on the table. Just very disorganized and disappointing. Our total check was $496.78. And at this price everything should be near perfection.

    We first chose mercury chop house because of its location - close for a director who works in the Wells Fargo tower. We continue our luncheons there because of the excellent service. ( Courtney is a public relations dream). Out of town guests remember the attentive staff . Prices are good and ambience is business conducive. We have closed many deals there!

    Eaten lunch here several times in the last 4 years. To start they have great warm rolls before the meal, but unlike most "nicer" places to eat in downtown Chophouse has failed to catch on to the idea that many people who are eating lunch do not want to spend 2 and a half hours eatting. Service always seems to be slow. The food is usually above average. It is better than Chili's but yet not really ever great. Finally there is always a lone fly that will inevitability find its way over to your table. Overall it is not the worst place to eat, but for the money there are much better places to go in downtown. This is usually always my last choice for a business lunch, but thats why they always can accomidate I guess.

    Not for sure what I was expecting. Perhaps my expectations were too high. The 6oz filets were fabulous. The mashed potatos were unimpressive...dry and pasty. The steamed mixed veggies were bland and totally lame. The grilled burgers were grilled burgers. Nothing special. The establishment itself was really nice. The place was not crowded even though it was Mother's Day. That was a pleasant surprise. We were seated right away. Took a few minutes to get served which was troubling. The valet guys were very quick and pleasant, however, bringing the car to us meant making a fast u-turn in the street and hitting the curb. Not too good on the tires! All in all, it was a nice place, but nothing special. Doubt that we will return.

    I took my family here for Mother's Day Lunch, even though it is more of a dinner restaurant. We loved it! It had a very cool ambiance with gorgeous samba music playing the background. It gave off a classy, elegant vibe, which my mother adored & made her feel special on her special day. The service was terrific, and the food was very good. I recommend it to anyone, but I would say go for dinner instead of lunch.

    I came here looking for a killer steak with the classic sides and that is just what I got. And then some! Started with a healthy belt of scotch and soda and Sinatra on the box. I was offered a half portion of a wedge and that was the right thing to do - was just enough salad. Bartender took this single lady diner in hand and made me feel like a queen. He could not have been more accommodating! Even found a smaller than T-Rex size rib-eye for me to enjoy with the 3 different sauce treatments they offer. Not cheap, mind you, but very tasty indeed. The beef comes with a tasty portion of mash so you don't need to order more veg but the string beans were nicely al dente. All in all, a classic joint in old Ft Worth that does not disappoint.

    This was a 1st time experience for me. I talked two additional friends into joining me for a Silver Oak Wine Dinner. The wine was very nice. The food was very disappointing. The lobster in the stuffed lobster dish was difficult to remove. The eggplant salad lacked flavor and had a slimy feel in the mouth. The "beef cooked three ways"...first piece of meat was tender but had a lot of fat. The second was wrapped in dough and had a lot of gristle. The third was very tough. Next was the dessert of a pear and ice cream. We all had to ask for knives to cut the pear. The butter knives didn't work. All of this was in such low lighting we had to use our phones to see our checks.

    Mercury Chop House was an excellent find. Although the restaurant is located downtown, it offered seclusion from the busy outside rustle, soft lighting, and the perfect atmosphere for our one year anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and I enjoyed it along with the best Long Island Iced Tea I've ever had. The wait staff was very professional and courteous, however the 40 minute delay between finishing our entrée and being served our desert was a little excessive; though not excessive enough to prevent another trip to Mercury Chop House.

    Great salad but my steak and vegetables were obviously set under a heat lamp while I finished my salad. In a restaurant of this caliber I would expect they would wait until you are finished with your salad before they put on a medium rare steak.The steak was medium well at best. The vegetables had broccoli and it had set under the lamp so long it was wilted and brown looking. My husbands was the same. We did not voice out concerns as we were guests at the table. We had the special with 3 sauces. Sauces were great.

    I had an 8:30 reservation, came in at 8:15, sat down in the VIP room (which felt more like a coat closet with sex dungeon decor) at 9:30, finally met our waitress at 9:50, and recieved my food at 10:25. So you do the math. I understand they were busy, but this was still unacceptable to me. Food was good, and they had a great wine selection, but do not believe I will ever return considering all the other great resturants in town.

    Overall the food was great, however, the service needs improvement. It was as though the restaurant booked to many people for the night (Valentines Day). The server was knowledgable about the food, but visited our table very rarely, and we had to wait for long periods of time between drinks, menus, the meal, and finally the check. We did however sit in the front "VIP" booth, which was blocked off from the rest of the restaurant by a curtain, and that may have accounted for the server often forgetting us.

    Some of the best food I've ever eaten and probably the worst service I've ever had. I waited over 10 minutes for a refill on water and over 15 minutes to get bread. I hated that the tables are so bunched together leaving no room between other couples.
