Away from the main downtown area, a house with its own history now serves amazing food. The lounge is the perfect setting for the jazz singers, although there isn't a great deal of space and the music can't be heard upstairs. Tables are small but food is a tapas style. High recommend you check it out, full bar list and food is served late as snacks.

When making dinner reservations last week, I saw the description for Mollie Fontaine Lounge and thought it looked interesting. Since there is limited information on their website, I just decided to go with the other recommendations on OpenTable and try it. What a great place! Great atmosphere, energy, and decor combined with pleasant, prompt, intelligent and interested service started our evening off. We barely opened the menu and just went with our server's food recommendations, which were all fantastic! It was a fun, interesting, diverse crowd and we were entertained by a very talented young performer singing and playing both the piano and squeezebox. My only disappointment...I did not find out about Mollie Fontaine sooner.

A hidden gem in my backyard
Mollie Fontaine is a hidden gem. The ambience, food, and service were excellent. What a great ideal, turning an old Victorian house in to a New York style restaurant. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Molly Fontaine drew us in from the start. It's in beautiful Victorian Village and the house is gorgeous with eclectic decor. We were lucky enough to sit in the front room with the piano, so we got a front row seat for the cool jazz. We had several small plates of food--tempura avacado, calamari and steak with truffle fries--and everything was delicious. The avacado was a real standout. Our server was very nice and attentive. She recommended a pinot noir that was v good. We enjoyed our entire experience at Molly F and will go again.

Weird in the best way!
We were visiting Memphis and looking for a unqiue experience, and Mollie Fontaine fit the bill. It is an old vicoritan mansion in a neighborhood of old mansions. The outside is beautiful and traditional and the inside is really cool and funky.The food is all small plates which is fun for sharing and trying new things. The avacado tempura was outstanding. They have a great and unique drink menu. My only complaint is that they allow smoking inside, but it seemed to be only on the second floor. We weren't asked if we had a preference and would have prefered the nonsmoking area, but didn't realize that existed until we had already ordered- be aware of this if smoke is an issue for anyone in your party!

We went to the Mollie Fontaine Lounge, while on a trip through Memphis. The restaurant is cool, hip and eclectic. The tables are very small. They are basically bedroom in tables. At first I hated this. But as we ate, I found that my date and I were sitting close and leaning in towards each other to share. In the end I grew to like the tiny tables and for no other reason they will make me remember this restaurant. The cocktails were excellent and the food was good.
Give it a try. You might like it.
