This is a cool, trendy hip spot located in a historic area of Memphis. An at home feel in a old house turned into bar! Comfortable sitting, knowledgeable staff and great cocktails! Get the Mac n Cheese!

Interesting setting - cute Victorian house. Was oddly quiet - I guess we got dinner a little early. The mussels were yummy and more in quantity than expected. Wish the pianist started playing before we left.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on August 18, 2017

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.

Apparently we stumbled in on a quiet night and were treated to excellent service, fabulous food and drink and a wonderful serenade from the musical duo, all in the surrounds of a mysterious and charming mansion.

My fiance and I dined at Mollie Fontaine's last week while we were visiting Memphis. It certainly was... unique.

We went there expecting it to be a bit quirky (after reading reviews), and we also were looking forward to having a tapas-style meal. Once we walked in the old Victorian house, we were confused what to do as there was a live band playing but no hostess. Finally, after standing around a bit, we went to the bar and told them we had a reservation. We then climbed a flight of stairs and were seated in two armchairs that were facing each other, but only had a side table between them. In the same room was another couple, seated similarly. The bar upstairs was not set up, and ordering took forever. The menu was not extensive, nor was the food anything special. We also felt out of place, although the other customers fit our own demographics.

Before dining at Mollie Fontaine's, please know what to expect: very strange tables/seating, lackluster service, average food and drinks, hodgepodge decor.

I am always weary about going here, because it's not really a "tapas" restaurant. It's more like a Bar that has decided to sell "tapas" food. But even with that, the food is always delicious, but the service is always something to be desired. It always seems like you are bothering the staff instead of them not wanting to help you.

This restaurant was off by itself, but it's so unique, it's worth the small extra effort to get there. The fries were excellent. Everything else was good, but not better than anything else. Drinks are very old fashioned and classy. There are no actual tables. Lounge is definitely the right word. The live music was great as well!

Talking to locals helps one to find tthose diamonds in the rough. Entering into the house we were greeted by warm friendly people. We explored the house and found the blue room to chill in. We ate and had great food with perfectly manufactured drinks. This is a must when in memphis.

This lounge in the Victorian Village is unique because it allows you to hang out in historical style. Low lighting, cool decor, delicious food (calamari with smoked paprika). Courtyard too. I don't know how this place wasn't packed, as it's beautiful, but there were only several other small parties there.

I found the Mollie Fontaine lounge highly recommended on Google, booked my table with ease and had a wonderful time!!! I LOVE the low lighting and jazz/house music! The DJ was awesome and service is great! The menu is limited and a bit pricey, but for a once in a while get away home stay with friends...it's worth it! I will definitely be back sooner than later.

Had a good dinner as per usual. Big issue here...do not try to use an open table dining certificate here. They will not take it. The manager tried to claim that they weren't really a "true" open table restaurant and shouldn't have to take it. It's vexing because open table dining certificates are really just travelers checks so it is no skin of the receiving restaurant's nose to take one but this individual chose to make us feel that we must be counterfeiting crooks. Used to go here weekly, but will not return for a good while!

The menu is strictly small plates. The restaurant is a collection of rooms with coffee tables and chairs. We were shown to a couple of chairs and a small side table, which was very awkward to eat the two small plates we ordered. If you're just going for drinks and to chat, it would be ideal. If you want dinner, you might want to try someplace else. The service was great though; our food arrived quickly and our waiter was attentive.

I called ahead to let them know about my husband's gluten allergy and Douglas and I figure out what he could eat prior to our visit. He had the steak and replaced the fries for a twice baked potato. I had the steak with the Parmesan truffle fries. We loved it!
We really enjoyed the diverse and funky cocktail list too!
Our server, Summer, was super sweet and did a great job bringing everything to us in a timely manner with a smile!
Great bartender! Very cool atmosphere!
