Diner Reviews
  • "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."

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

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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....."

  • "As always, the food and service at the Mercury were excellent. I had requested a quiet table, and that is what we had! Throughly enjoyed our lunch. "

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "My husband chose this restaurant from the reviews. We went there, the family, to help him celebrate his 50th birthday. He arrived early and sat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and made him his favorite cocktail. He also gave him 2 samples of a Cab! He loved one of them which he ordered for dinner. Our 15 and 17 year old daughters loved the restaurant as well. Our waiter, Jesse, was outstanding. All the wait staff were excellent. We can't wait to return."

  • "Chris Ward serves a special brunch on Easter, Mother's Day and thanksgiving. It really is one of the best in Dallas. The Mercury has been my favorite restaurant for several years. It has the neighborhood feel with the elegant ambiance of the classiest restaurants in Dallas. The food is always wonderful, while the service is impecable and friendly. If you have never been, I suggest a visit soon."

  • "While we've thoroughly enjoyed their brunch in past years, this year's was okay. Perhaps the 1pm seating was our downfall; food was not warm, and often in need of replenishing. While the grits, migas, and brisket were delightful, the omlet station was hidden, the eggs benedicts were room temp, and the desserts were mis-labelled (good thing my wife who is allergic to nuts didn't try the "nut free" cake - which actually had nuts throughout!) My table guests and I agreed, we miss the coffee and doughnut balls upon reception! , and the sophisticated waiters , who are understandable, and understanding. I hope this truly was the exception to my last several visits. "
