Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful Service, Dellicious specials, always so much fun!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We recently had a very nice business lunch at The Mercury. One of our guests is hard of hearing in noisy environs. The wait staff was very kind in seating us in their adjacent room, away from the lunch crowd. This led to an enjoyable dining experience for everyone."

  • "Wonderful evening & meal. Reliable for delicious dinner!"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "It's one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants for either lunch or dinner. Service is outstanding as staff are very attentive, and knowledgeable. Lunch has two menus. One is similar to the dinner menu with lunch portion servings and prices. The other is more like a deli menu which includes a really great hamburger list but includes Reubens sandwiches and Muffalettas, etc. and they do great French fries. It's great for business lunches unless you have to read contracts and stuff as it has an art deco look with low lighting and dark walls and tinted windows. It's really great for dinner as well. Significantly, it has been there for years and has a very loyal clientele... like us."

  • "Our dinner was first rate and delivered by excellent and knowledgeable servers. The tables were a bit too close together for a high end operation like Mercury, however. There were only two of us and we could overhear every bit of the conversation from a nearby (and well behaved) table of 4. I'll be back, but insist on a table with less proximity to others. Nonetheless, a very good experience and I recommend the compressed watermelon salad and the smoked pork chop."

  • "Food has been consistently very good and the waiter was excellent really new what he was talking about and made god recommendations"

  • "We have been going to The Mercury for 16 years...sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. The service is outstanding and the food is always delicious. Chris Ward, Chef/Partner, is always willing to fix anything you ask of him. We just love this place. Favorites are the filet dynamite, Dover sole, steak tartare, sashimi of yellowtail and the most wonderful pomme frites. The warm bread and chicken liver pate served as soon as you sit down are always a hit!"

  • "The food was well prepared, well presented and the dishes we had were outstanding. The blend of seasonings and components were most pleasing. Looking forward to returning for another experience."

  • "We reserved a table for four, promptly seating and waited upon by the entire staff. This was a Friday night and the restaurant was crowded. We did not experience any long waits for service. Food arrived with good timing, we ordered several appetizers, salads and main dishes followed by desserts. I would recommend The Mercury without hesitation."

  • "Great place for a power lunch. Fast, good food, and decent service."
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "A solid, even exemplary, power lunch spot. Consistently first-rate food, service, ambience and attention to detail."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We have been to Mercury many times but never sat in the back room before. It has such a different feel and can't compare in ambiance to the main dining room. While the food has always been outstanding in the past, it was just okay this night. It will be awhile before we return."

  • "The Mercury is one of our favorite restaurants in Dallas. Wednesday was our 22nd Wedding Anniversary and so we chose The Mercury to celebrate. We always request a specific table and for this very special occasion I called ahead and was specifically told it was available and would be reserved for our party of 4. We arrived on time at 7:00 PM and were shown to a different table adjacent to our requested one which had a party that had just been seated minutes earlier. When I asked the hostess why our table was not reserved as promised she just shrugged and walked away. Not wanting to make an issue with our daughter and her boyfriend present, I let it go. Food was great, service was just ok this evening, and the hostess has an attitude."

  • "Very enjoyable evening. Will certainly be going back. Could not fault anything. Well done"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Love The Mercury! Our server recognized we wanted to visit and catch up before ordering, he was absolutely "there", but "invisible", almost magical in the way he showed up when appropriate and catered to our cadence. The food is not only beautiful but outstanding flavor! I loved the Black Cod! Our table also enjoyed the duck and a steak... Wines for every taste and price point, and staff that obviously want you to have the best experience they can provide."

  • "We were very displeased with our evening at the Mercury. Although it was New Year's Eve, we did have reservations. We waited for over an hour before we were seated, and then we were seated in the back dining room. We were the only table there and the service was very slow. It was late and the dinner hour was winding down. We expect restaurants such as the Mercury to only accept reservations they can accommodate."

  • "We took a family friend out to dinner for his birthday and it was wonderful. Just four of us at the table, but we had a large one with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Our waiter had the perfect amount of assistance and attentiveness, never intrusive. We did not tell anyone it was a birthday but had left a card at our friend's place before he arrived. A lovely chocolate, flourless cake dessert with a candle came out later as a surprise. The food was superb, wine wonderful and we had a relaxed, lovely evening."

  • "I eat out often and what you can say about the Mercury that keeps bringing the well heeled back is that it is exceptional, consistent and moderately priced. The well to do, do not like to over pay. It is a perfect nice restaurant in a perfect neighborhood. I love it."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Love the variety of offerings on both regular & seasonal menu. Have tried most every dish on the menu. Never disappointed. Service is always perfect, attentive but never intrusive. Liked that our waiter decanted the bottle of wine we ordered while we enjoyed our cocktails & appetizers."

  • "Food is superb! Service at the top of the list! # 1 choice when in North Dallas."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I've dined here a few times over the last several times with my wife and our meals have been very good each time. Most notably the Yellow tail appetizer, Pear and Gorgonzola salad, lamb shank, and Miso Cod. Service is always good. Dont let the fact its in a strip center fool you, it is very good. Cherry Bread Pudding is a great dessert option."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "We visited on a Wednesday evening and I was surprised at how busy the Mercury was for a mid-week dinner! Lots of business dinners but many couples just enjoying excellent food as well. As always the food was excellent, the service was attentive without being overbearing and the atmosphere was spot on. One of our favorite restaurants to dine at."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Food is always very good at Mercury and the service was friendly and accommodating. Friend and I sat and talked for over 2 hours and we were not rushed. Noise level high at first but got better as it cleared out."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Mercury always is consistent with excellent food and service. There is not very much variation in the menu selections and expensive."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Whether you are out on a date or celebrating your grandmother's birthday, the Mercury is a sure bet. Good food in a comfortable (if dark) setting."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We had not been to the Mercury in a few years. We were seated in the back room which was a nice surprise--did not know it was there. We could actually hear each other. Our waiter, Tony was the best and we will ask for him the next time we dine there. The menu was enticing and the food excellent."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "This one of my favorite restaurants. Food and service are excellent. They also helped by reserving a table I selected in advance, adn set flowers (which I supplied ahead of time) beautifully on the table for our special occasion. You can't do better than The Mercury."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We left after waiting more than an hour after our reservation time. There were other people still waiting with reservation times at least 30 minutes earlier than ours, we did not feel the restaurant was worth that kind of wait."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Restaurant overbooked....wait for a table was over an hour.....my 7:30 reservation at 8:00 was #12 on the waiting list.... we left and will not return anytime soon."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Made reservations late for Valentines Day evening. Usual moderate delay because of the crowd, but seating was processed fairly quickly. We finally chose to sit at the bar to watch the Olympics. Food was excellent as usual."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a reservation & still had to wait 1 hour for table & the food was not near as good as it has been in the past. I was very disappointed."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We made a reservation for 7:30. At 8:30 we gave up waiting and grabbed a seat at the bar; not what we had in mind the day after Valentine's. I assume Valentine's weekend is much busier than usual, but why even bother accepting reservations if they're so utterly meaningless? The food was excellent; the bar staff very pleasant and helpful; but management? Fail."

  • "A great restaurant. The food was exceptional and the service was great."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We've enjoyed it over the years. But they seem to overbook for the holidays (New Year's Eve, Valentine's, etc) We had reservations for 7:30pm, when we checked in, the hostess told us that they were running 20-30 minutes late. After waiting the 30 minutes, I approached them and was told they had no idea when a table would be available. I understand that it was Saturday, February 15 (Valentine's weekend) and they would be busy but it is not the first time it has happened. We enjoy the food there but I don't think I will return since the last few times we have had issues with actually being seating in a timely manner. Why take reservations if you can't honor them? It just ruins the night. We left."

  • "Valentines Dinner, so the restuarant was very, very crowded. Service was still exceptional and the food as well. We especially liked that they had their ordinary menu, not a limited one, for the occasion. All of the entrees that we had at our table were great - fish, lamb, beef, and duck. The best part for me is the souflee for dessert."

  • "We were a party of four celebrating our Anniversaries on Valentine's Day. We loved everthing, our wine, our food and this sevice was impeccable!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food and service was excellent but waiting 45 minutes for a reservation is deplorable . There excuse was they had a large party in a separate room . I am wondering how is that my problem. When you overbook and under deliver , your Patrons may never come back. I go out every weekend and can afford to spend 200 on dinner and this is very telling they don't care. They should of knocked one entree or appetizer off the bill!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The Mercury is our favorite restaurant. While we certainly enjoy trying new and notable eateries all around town, we always find ourselves gravitating back to The Mercury whenever a special occasion warrants a special meal, our whenever we simply want an outstanding experience with great food and great service in a vibrant yet inviting atmosphere. The Mercury has never disappointed us. We will be back soon."

  • "We had a fabulous evening for a birthday celebration on Valentine's Day with a party of 8. We were in a lovely alcove and enjoyed the 3 hour feast, never feeling rushed even on that busy night out for restaurants. Everything, wine, cocktails, sakads, entrees, desserts and coffee was wonderful!"

  • "I would recommend for business lunches and lunch get togethers in general, although it's a bit dark in there. For lunch it has two menus. One is more hamburger/deli sandwiches, and one is similar to the dinner menu. The food and the service is great. Dinner, especially on weekends, can be noisy, the service less reliable. I would go there again."
