The food and service were impeccable. This is the second time we’ve dined here within the last two months. Mike, our server, was a perfect combination of attentive without interrupting our conversation. The sea bass with risotto is probably among the best I have eaten and my husband loved the pork chops. Also enjoyed the house cocktails along with a reasonably priced yet great wine list. Will definitely return again and again.

Every steak on our table of nine was undercooked. Cordon Blue had burned spots on breading and inside was cold. Place was empty and took 2 hours! Will NEVER be back!

Food poor and over cooked steaks. Smaller than advertised by waiter. Had ordered prime rib special which was not special at all - disappointing for the price. Piano player was awesome and only highlight

Absolutely amazing food and service. Also, a great place if you need a last minute table at an awesome place as they usually are not full. They should be but you can generally get e a great table. Live jazz piano music on the weekends. With so many great steak places in downtown don't overlook the Mercury Chophouse.

We had reservations for 7:45. The smug and unapologetic hostess told us it would be 20 minutes. We and many others sat waiting, so much that there were not enough seats to accommodate the couples. The piano players music was turned up so loud that I could not have a conversation with my wife sitting at the bar. While at the bar one of the male managers that was older seemed to be more interested in flirting with the blond ladies at the bar than making sure customers were happy or attempting to make them happy. We finally were seated 30+ minutes later at our table and then our waiter was in no hurry to take our orders or any showing any sense of urgency. We watched as another couple that was seated shortly after us get up and leave. We finished our bottle of wine and left, I was not going to wait until 9 o'clock at night. Prior to us leaving we saw the bartender and we told her we were leaving. She was the only one that cared. She stated that this restaurant always overbooks and it was not indicative of being the Saturday after Valentine's. If you want to eat within an hour of your reservation do not go to this place. Stick with places like Del Frisco's or Eddie V's that take care of their patrons.

We had a reservation for 7:30 at 8:30 there was no end in sight for dining. I have no issue waiting
but no one offered any update or any type of update on status. We moved on to another steak house that was equally busy but offered exceptional service. Rare moment for us that we experienced poor service.

First off made a reservation for tonight at 7:30, got to the restaurant at 7:15 and was told there was a bigger party that had to be seated so that was no problem. We waited 35 minutes before finally being seated. We were then asked kindly by the manager to move to a more private spot to accommodate a bigger party so we did so which wasn't a big deal. Then the horror began. Our waiter came over with no personality at all to get our drink order which took 15 minutes to arrive also but that's beside the point. We then order appetizers that never showed up to be followed by some rare steaks when we ordered medium WELL. I even pulled up a chart on google to compare the steaks and they looked nothing like we requested. I asked him to cook them a little more and he gave me attitude as he yanked the plates out of our hand. Did I mention we were told they RAN OUT OF BREAD? I get it's valentines weekend but how in the world do you run out of....bread? We were told they had to run to get more when I saw multiple tables served bread. At this point I'm just ready for the check.

Silver lining: at least the food was excellent once we got the correctly ordered steaks.

All in all terrible service 1 out of 10.

We waited an hour to get our table we had a "reservation" for, only to then be sat and ignored for another 10 minutes by everyone. No one came to offer us water, bring a menu, etc. So we finally left, after being there for 1 hr and 15 minutes. We will not go back, service was horrible and I felt ignored.

Our experience was rocky from the start. Getting our beverages was challenging. The server only took a drink order from 2 of the 4 people then darted away. After a while she finally came back and we were able to finish ordering. The food was good but the menu is not descriptive and we weren’t to sure what exactly we were ordering. Over all the service was lacking, definitely not what you would expect for a table spending $350.

Hands down the most pathetic excuse for a steakhouse ever. We were seated at 8pm. The waitress got our water and gave us a valentines menu. I asked about the appetizers because it was a seafood tower and I’m allergic to shrimp and her response was “ I don’t know, nobody has ordered it. Well... at that point I was questioning my choice in restaurants.. we ordered off the regular menu and got some calamari which had been fried, dried, Refried until the consistency of tire rubber, and served. We had Caesar salads which were every color of the rainbow ( rotted lettuce) except the color of lettuce. I was repulsed. Then dinner was served.. no wait.. not our food.. someone else’s.. we waited another 45 minutes and our waitress asked if we wanted dessert to which I replied” I’d like to have dinner first”. She walked off shocked that we hadn’t had our main course yet.. after another 30 minutes we asked for the manager who tried to compensate us with a gift card to return.. I refused, laughed, and left..

Not even close to the service or food quality since they moved. No bread at our table but everywhere else. Could not open a wine bottle. Ordered creamed spinach and never received. Watiress noticed that when I asked for check. Chicken went home to my dog. Steak so, so. This is why we are Ruth’s Chris fans. Could have saved a ton o money and eaten at the Outback in Burleson!!! Never again. Too bad cuz we really liked everything about the old place. Great bartenders in the new place though.

We went for Valentines Day dinner at 4:00pm and the staff was still setting up and speaking very loudly next to our table. It killed the atmosphere. The food was great. I had a filet cooked perfectly and my wife had salmon which was also perfect. Overall it was a good experience with great food and reasonable prices. I’d certainly recommend to others just work a little on atmosphere.

Our server, Michael was attentive at first, then he was hit or miss. He did not even take our order or deliver our food. I had also been promised a discount from Arthur approved by Zack. Michael said he would get him, but never did.

Getting THREE scallops in my dish was beyond disappointing. The salad was very nice, though. My boyfriend was very happy with his dinner, and it was his birthday, so that made me happy.

My first visit to Mercury Chophouse years ago in the Dallas area was much better.

If my boyfriend wants to go back, we will, but it would not be my first choice for fine dining.

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.
