I had the Pecan-crusted Chicken with Blackberry sauce, mashed potatoes and steamed veggies.
I recommend highly!
The sauce has just a bit of a spice kick rather than an overpowering sweetness. Way to go Chef!

My business contact had the Ahi tuna salad. It had a sliced jalapeño with a touch of wasabi.
The presentation was beautiful & delicious.

Had reservations at 7:00 pm. We were the only people eating at that time and only one other couple came in while we were there till 9:00pm. We all ordered steaks, mine was well done when asked for MR, and it was over aged . My friends steak was raw when asked for MR. Sides were fine, service was great!! I've been here numerous times and it's always been great. I will go again in hopes it will be better, maybe it was just an off night

Although every item the 6 of us ordered was very good, the evening was made special by the remarkable attention and perfect service of our waiter, Mike. Hearing that two of us wanted lamb but needed mint jelly, he apologized that there was none in the restaurant; somehow, a short time later, it materialized! He was, on all counts, a perfect waiter and Mercury Chop House is lucky to have him. On the food front, great kudos for the lamb shank and night's special sea bass. Brandy Alexanders rounded out a great meal

This was the worst experience my wife and I have had in years. We had reservations @ 9 PM.

We were sat around until 9:30, after waiting for 20 minutes to be sat. Then another 20 minutes to get water, and no menus, seems a little foolish to pay $60 per person, eh?

We left and went to Eddie v’s and got superb service. Don’t go here, let them fail and go out of business. Only the strong survive.

We were never greeted, seated or served. Did not end up staying. It was NYE. Had 830 reservation. Arrived and heard many patrons stuffed inside the entry grumbling about already being overbooked and more than one hour behind on seating those with reservations.
We had rsvp for 4. We all waited 20 minutes to simply notify a host or manager of our arrival. No one showed. We called Ruth’s Chris and they were able to seat us immediately and went over there and enjoyed a usual wonderful meal and tasty cocktails and desserts with great friends and had great service at a prime table, so the night ended up well. I had not been to the chophouse in quite a number of years and had really been looking forward to revisiting.
I realize a busy night such as NYE is probably not the best night to judge a restaurant by, however, no host or managers to greet new patrons or explain the wait just makes the villagers more angry.
I still want to try Mercury Chophouse but I’m not anxious to revisit anytime soon.

Do not attempt this restaurant during a holiday season. Management did have a clue. Restaurant was under staffed with little support from management. Staff was getting berated by patrons for reasons they couldn't control. First and last time to make reservation at this location.

Ended up making another reservation at a different restaurant while waiting for basic service. Which was a much better experience.

Made a reservation through Open Table two days in advance. Reservation was for 8:00 PM. Arrived shortly before 8:00 and stood in line for 30 minutes before even seeing a hostess. There were people in line in front of us that had reservations for 7:30 that had not been able to check in either. The manager finally took our names and said there would be a long wait, even though we all had reservations. After waiting for 45 minutes, there were still people in front of us that had reservations for 7:00 PM still waiting to be seated. I can’t comment on the food here because we left without being seated and went to Silver Fox instead.

Used OpenTable to try to find a reservation at the last minute for New Year’s Eve with my wife. Was interested in trying out someplace new. Mercury Chophouse kept coming up. With all of the more recent reviews being very positive, I thought I would give it a try. We were not disappointed! We were an hour early for our reservation. No problem! They sat us immediately. The service was wonderful. Everyone kept checking on us to be sure we had water and bread. Our waitress gave us regular updates on status of our order (as if we were in a hurry...not). The food was excellent both in taste and temperature. And while not somewhere I can personally afford to eat often, it is now definitely on my recommended list for places for special occasions. Not sure when, but we will go back!

Unfortunately our whole experience was a miss. We were seated right away, greeted within a timely manor but thats about all the good we could say. Poor lighting at our table though I can't speak for the restaurant as a whole. The alcohol beverages that we ordered were not what we expected from a place at the price point that is charged. The waitress came back to take our order and from that point on was not around for a good 25-30 mins. She was completely "in the weeds" as its called in the industry meaning very overwhelmed. The food was dropped off then we never got a check back after receiving our food to make sure everything was good. In fact I had finished my meal and my husband had eaten all of the sides but needed his steak altered. (The mistake was my husbands because it was written on the menu but he situation could have been helped) The prime rib was soaked in brown gravy/Au Jus that made the meat super salty and overpowered the meat so my husband whipped it clean as well as possible to salvage but needed a new plate since the sauce covered the whole plate and some horseradish sauce for cutting the remaining salty flavor. We waited until the steak was cold and we were done with everything else before the "check back" from the waitress happened. at least 25 mins.. I tried multiple times to politely flag another employee but were we were seated was off the path (No mans land!) everything was super salty!!! The sides at $9 a piece were mediocre at best. We tried really hard to keep a positive vibe and find the good points but the bad greatly over weighed. I would like to disclaimer that we love and frequently go to nice or even fine dining places around 10-12 times a year so our complains are not only from having expectations but also from past experiences dining many other establishments over the years. We were at the restaurant over 2 and a half hours and it could have been done in an hour and a half. $182 later plus tip we finally left very disappointed.

My extended family enjoyed a wonderful dinner together on Christmas Day. I’m so glad that the Mercury Chophouse is open on Christmas. It has become a family tradition for us that we all look forward to. The food and service is consistently good. I love their menu and the Special Christmas menu is a delicious option as well.

There were five of us celebrating Christmas lunch at Mercury Chophouse.
The service was outstanding.
Three of us order off of the holiday menu, three courses for $40. The Chicken Cordon Blue was outstanding. The salad was the the best salad I’ve had in a long time. Love it!! The Apple pie dessert was a nice, warm treat.
Thank you for opening Christmas Day!

Managers were very accommodating, as we were celebrating our fancy little ladies evening out (three girls 7-12yrs old). There was no kids menu, so they allowed the girls to order, then split their appetizer & dinner servings....even bringing it out on seperate plates. The girls were able to practice their table etiquette, and social skills. It's definitely an adult friendly restaurant, but they made our girls feel special just the same!!!

Ate here for Thanksgiving. Food was prompt, fresh, hot, and fabulous. There were 5 of us and we all were very impressed overall. The food was geared towards the traditional foods and was delightful. There was soft music in the background, not loud, and perfect for table conversation. Service was excellent! Highly recommend, but it’s hard because we kind of want to keep it a secret. :). Thank you, Mercury Chophouse! It was left up to me to pick for my family and my father can be picky. He was very complimentary!! Mission accomplished.

I took my wife here for an anniversary dinner, and was so glad I did. The ambiance was exactly what we were looking for, that staff ( especially Travis) was fantastic, and the food was delicious. We have paid substantially more for other dinners that were nowhere near this level of an experience. We will definitely be back.

Food was good, I had a reservation through open table, sat us right next to piano, once they started the music I couldn’t hear our tables conversations. I went there for parents weekend TCU. Good place if you don’t want to communicate with your kids. Service was good, just too loud, I wanted to enjoy a quiet evening with my wife and son.

First visit. I had a "tri fillet" that was three small fillet mignons with three different sauces. They were cooked a perfect medium rare, and the sauces were great. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. This is one of the few restaurants I've been to in a while that served really good fresh green beans -- not overcooked and mushy, but not so fashionably under cooked that they tasted like grass and took forever to chew.

I have been here before, and unfortunately, this experience confirmed that despite a finer dining, higher price point, there are many other better options in Fort Worth than this one. From layout of the space, to quality of food and service, Mercury Chophouse does not measure up.

The food was good but not outstanding. I did expect a little better but it was restaurant week and a limited menu and I know they were busy. I will try again though as the ambiance was very good and the wait staff were wonderful. They have a very cute bar so would be a great place to watch a sporting event.

I wanted to give MC a great review, but unfortunately I cannot. There was nothing terrible but there was nothing special either. Our server was partly attentive and partly inattentive. When he finally returned to the table, he smelled like cigarette smoke. The mac & cheese was my favorite thing that was ordered. My steak was, plainly put, not good. There were others at the table that enjoyed their food, so I want to mention that to be fair to MC's kitchen. I want so badly for MC to be successful downtown. The architecture is great, the live entertainment was nice, I just won't return unless there is a really great incentive.

Pleasantly surprised, since I head read multiple reviews with comments about poor service and poor value. Found service to be more than adequate if not quite polished, and food to be worth the price ( although was restaurant week). Steaks were properly cooked, sides delicious, and dessert great. Extensive wine list. Only real negative was the pianist/ singer. Poor guy was trying, but should just stick to playing and not attempting to sing.

We had never been here before, and a Groupon enticed us to try it out. I got the shrimp and grits, while my date got the bone in ribeye and a baked potato. We both had a wedge salad. My shrimp and grits were tasty, but for $30, I would have expected more or larger shrimp. The portion was pitiful. My date enjoyed his steak, but it was also more expensive than other high end steak places downtown, and not more spectacular. It was 7 PM on a Saturday night, and not many people were there. We had a reservation, but didn't need it. We were sat right away without being able to tell the host we even had a reservation.
