Funky, Extraordinary, Eclectic, Soulful, Artsy, Avant-garde atmosphere ; these are some of the words used to describe this extraordinary restaurant + lounge located in Victorian Village in Memphis, Tennessee. The Mollie Fontaine Lounge is housed in a gorgeous Victorian mansion stuffed with a combination of retro and vintage-y chic décor- over stuffed loungers, funky little chairs, and super cool lighting. There’s a full bar downstairs and upstairs serving specialty libations with sounds coming from the piano downstairs to the DJ’s upstairs- The small plate menu serves up scrumptious international dishes such as ~Avocado Tempura, Crispy Duck Spring Rolls, Hickory smoked Sliders w/ Benton’s Bacon +Gruyere, Shrimp a la Planchaand Steamed Mussels in a Red Curry Coconut Broth to name a few. The Mollie Fontaine Lounge is possibly the most unique bar in Memphis.

This is a bar with food, not a restaurant. Menu on website is not accurate. Food is mediocre.
Room is interesting, but I would not recommend for dinner.

Great food, drinks and ambiance! Historic old home decorated in an upscale, eclectic fashion gracefully transitioned into an excellent restaurant and piano bar.

So glad I picked this spot for my 30th birthday dinner. The food and drinks were so good, with a couple of exceptions. I drove from Oxford, MS and have every intention to do it again. Loved the vibe.

Our 2nd visit. Thankful they accommodate Vegetarians. Only a handful of fellow diners on both visits... Not sure why? It's fun, great music, good food, laid back vibe. We enjoyed both visits. I guess you get it or you don't... We do!

I haven't been for quite a few years. It looks the same, but I don't recall their being such an abbreviated menu. I suppose you could call it tapas, but not so exciting. My main complaint is that we were seated at a tiny tea table so that you had to balance your plate on your lap. I suppose I should have researched before going.

St. Patrick's day, there was no live music. No warning... we showed up and the musician decided to take a night off last-minute, so they hired a DJ, who wouldn't arrive until 11 p.m. Our reservations were at 6:30, and the place was absolutely dead. Really disappointed.

Drinks menu and was disappointing and overpriced.
The tapas plates we ordered were also bad: mac n cheese was undercooked, calamari was reheated and dried out and dumplings were also deep fried into oblivion.

In addition service was questionable - painted on smiles and generally uncomfortable atmosphere.

We dined at Molly Fontaine's for a date night. Our corner seats in the front room did not offer much for an intimate dining experience. It's a fun atmosphere that would be much better suited for late-night hangs. The cocktails were just okay, but I highly recommend the truffle fries.

Customer service was poor. Not good service and we did not enjoy our drinks or food.

I have heard great things about this place, but our server was new and didn't even know what a ginger ale was. He had to leave our group and 'go ask' about everything.

"Do you have ginger ale?" - "let me go ask"

"Can you make this drink without the alcohol because I'm pregnant?" - "let me go ask"

"Could you serve the non-alcoholic drink in a champagne glass (because it's my bachelorette party) and I want it to look pretty and feel like I'm still drinking something tasty?" - "sure" - but then he served it in a regular glass.

He ended up charging us the full price of an alcoholic drink even though we asked for them to be virgin because people in our group were pregnant. $12 for grapefruit juice and soda water isn't acceptable.

When we ordered desert, we asked what their special was. He said, "It's like a chocolate cookie in between bread" ... so, since that was the only option, we ordered it. It was a white bread sandwich, with chocolate spread in the middle, sprinkled with powdered sugar for $13.

It wasn't the experience we were hoping for.
