Diner Reviews
  • "Food was excellent...as always. Disappointed that restaurant did not pick up special note from online reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. Why submit a special request if the restaurant doesn't pay attention to it."

  • "My husband and I love The Mercury! The food is consistently "over the top" great and we really enjoy the complimentary pate that comes with the bread! It is our go-to place for special occasions and for a last-minute drop-in for a quick bite and/or drink."

  • "The food is always amazing! Love the pate to start. The shrimp and grits are my favorite."

  • "The food was fabulous! Unfortunately our waiter was extremely inattentive . It took 40 minutes from the time we received our salads to get our main courses. That was finally after we complained to the maître de because our server was nowhere to be found. Very disappointing as we loved the food and have had previous good luck. We think our waiter forgot to put in the order, bit then never checked to see how we were doing."

  • "Chef Chris Ward is a outstanding and talented. I had the blacken snapper and the ribs as an appetizer; what a fantastic meal. If you have a client or need a great place to take your wife I would recommend the Mercury. The wait staff was very attentive and made the meal a very relaxing and enjoyable time."

  • "This is my go-to for luncheons, but dinner is really fantastic. We had one of the seasonal specials, fried oysters which is nothing like you ever tasted. Talk about light and tender! Try the Veal Milanaise which comes with the best spaetzle in town. More standard dishes such as the Prime Ribeye were also excellent. Even if the entrees as you gaze at the menu might seem standard, the accompaniments are quite special, sometimes unique. Service is very friendly and attentive without hovering. It's a great neighborhood restaurant."

  • "Mercury is a terrific spot for a North Dallas business lunch and a nice alternative to the traffic burden of Preston Center. I like the light but flavorful salads but the entree selections are unique and always excellent."

  • "In town at the Cooper Clinic we found this amazing restaurant and bar just 0.3 miles away. We were graciously welcomed even though we were 40 minutes early due to extreme hunger. This is the only restaurant ever where we ordered drinks and were allowed to enjoy them for a bit BEFORE receiving our menus for the evening. Nice touch, wish they all did that. My husband ordered the pear and gorgonzola salad while I opted for the kalamata bread and artichoke salad. Both were a taste explosion that delighted. A perfectly cooked Filet for him and pan roasted Halibut for me, equally well prepared. We ordered a share side of Pommes Frites which unfortunately was addictive. A must try next time you are there! Our waiter, Diego, made our visit perfect."

  • "I was back in Dallas and had such a great experience at Mercury that I wanted to return. Even better this time. The steak with crab topping was fabulous. Ask to be in Eric's section - he is the best waiter in Texas! Will be back."

  • "The food was fantastic. Just wish I had left room for dessert. They have all of the classics."

  • "What Preston Hallow knows, but the rest of Dallas doesn't is that Mercury is one of the best restuarants in town. Chris Ward, delivers a diverse selection of simple but tasty plates. This resturant does not follow some of the latest trends of infusing flavors or topping everything with foam, it shines without a lot of fuss. It consistently delivers well-seasoned and well-prepared food with impeccable service. There is nothing dated about that!"

  • "I've eaten at The Mercury in the past and enjoyed the food but wasn't very impressed on this occasion. We were seated in the side room which was a plus because it was much quieter and I could actually hear my dining companion as we talked. Overall I was left feeling I wouldn't bother to come back--the food is too expensive not to have a great meal."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This was my go-to neighborhood restaurant for lunch because they cooked hamburgers to perfection and it's a great place to get together with friends. French fries are also great. They have now combined the two for $15 which means you can't just order the hamburger and who orders a hamburger for $15? Makes for an expensive lunch. Think the normal menu is great."

  • "Took the wife for her birthday and couldn't have been happier, food and wine was outstanding. The service was unbelievably great - our waiter was watchful and attentive. Took cues perfectly and knew exactly when to be around and when not to be. In hindsight the 35% tip may have been too low."

  • "food was surprisingly bland and "cronuts" awfully greasy--unusual for this typicall consistent restaurant. i asked for a soft drink between first and second course--never came, never mentioned even as dessert orders were taken. it's the little things....."

  • "Great place. Classy. Romantic. Great food and service. Extensive wine list plus good wines by the glass. A bit pricey so great for special occasions."

  • "Superb food. Best Black Cod dish I've ever had including many in Boston where Cod is a staple. Kalamata Bread salad a unique, flavorful and different salad. treatment. Pleasant atmosphere in the room, liked the lower light level and candles on the tables but a tad noisy in our area near the open kitchen. Would ask for another table away from kitchen next time. Service was very good over all but got a little slower as crowd increased.....our waiter knew the menu, was well versed on various entrees and quite helpful since this was our first visit. Well dressed and mannered clientele which was nice to be among yet not stuffy by any means. Odd location in strip center belies what you find inside which, I suppose, allows reasonable menu prices."

  • "Our table of 5 all ordered different items. I had the veal - it is an odd mixture of greens and sliced veal parmesan. The veal was very dry and the vegetables just didn't work, more like something you'd put together as the last of leftovers. Another had the filet w lobster, hard to mess that up. Overall, the menu is week and I'm not inclined to go back. "

  • "Would go back without hesitation. Manager and service persons really on their toes."

  • "We've been here before when garlic was the previlent seasoning but it was fine. Hard to have a private conversation but after 50 years we can read each other's lips. Pricing was acceptable and pace was appropriate"

  • "We live in Longview and come to Dallas several times each year. One of the highlights of our trip is dining at Mercury. We love their martinis, service, and Halibut finished with Lava Cake and a dip of vanilla ice cream and a great cup of black coffee. YUM! Sandra & Jimmy Johns"

  • "We wanted a quiet place to have dinner with friends. We booked on Open Table and requested the back room where we have eaten several times. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told that the back room was only for large parties. "

  • "I enjoy the food at this restaurant and it is nice to have a business meeting here. However, the waitstaff is extremely rude and I have experienced the same treatment from the waitstaff on several occasions. "

  • "Excellent dinning with great care to quality and preparation"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This place highlights its steaks, but we both chose Scottish salmon, one on a salad and one on excellent rissotto with peas and asparagus mixed in. The salmon was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Really, everything was expertly done. I'll probably try a steak the next time we're in town. The restaurant is lovely inside, the wine list is diverse but not overwhelming, and the bartender makes a great Manhattan. We'll be back."

  • "We dined for the first time at The Mercury. It was unbelievable! The food was simply perfection. Service was outstanding! Being from out of town, we can't wait to get back to Dallas to experience the divine cuisine at The Mercury! It is truly the perfect place for any individual with a highly refined discerning palate!"

  • "We had a college graduation celebration at the Mercury for 6. One of my best meals ever! The food selection was terrific. The quality was over the top. The service was awesome. Chef/owner Ward was all over the place running the kitchen, greeting guests, and making guests feel welcome. I had the short rib appetizer and braised lamb shanks, and soufflé for dessert. Wonderful! Can't wait to go back."

  • "We are regulars at this neighborhood restaurant for lunch and occasionally dinner. Service is excellent, especially at lunch and on weekdays although I can't speak for weekends. It can get really noisy on weekends. Food is great. I think it's great for business lunches. We also did a large party in the side room and I think that would be great for company events. "

  • "We had such an amazing dinner. The service was outstanding. Everything about the night was perfect. Unfortunately, the dessert was a bomb. Supposedly the ultimate completion of a meal at The Mercury is the souffle. Ours was inedible. It tasted like eggs. Such a shame to end an otherwise amazing night with a poor dessert."
