The Fish tasted frozen and the chips tasted old. Not a good choice.
Everything else was okay.

My wife and I were having our Date Night for Valentines and we were looking for a place close to the Sammons Arts Center were we could have dinner. The Meddlesome Moth was perfect! The ambiance, service, and food were simply spot on! Our server, Chris, made outstanding food & wine suggestions. The view of the open kitchen showcases the teamwork taking place to prepare all of the delectable goodies. We tried the Moth Balls, Shrimp & Grits and Diver Scallops on Polenta Cakes, all outstanding, good portions and wonderful flavors. Looking forward to our next visit.

This is one of my favorite neighborhood spots, and I continually appreciate the fact that I can usually get a table at short notice — and a great one at that! This past weekend we came in for impromptu brunch and were sat at one of our favorite booths, which was being served by one of our favorite regular servers. Thanks again, MedMoth!

One of our Dallas favorites. Not one of our best visits, but still enjoyable. Couldn't find a beer we liked since no pilsners or lagers on tap. First chardonnay that we ordered was flat-waiter did a good job fixing. Seemed like they had changed the recipe on the collard greens (no taste of ham or bacon as have had in past). Cornbread overcooked and falling apart.

Get the Moth Balls! We stopped in for dinner but realized it’s not really a dinner place unless you want to share a bunch of small plates. So we got the Moth balls, a house speciality, and had a drink and left. I’d definitely come back for a business meeting or with a group of friends. But not a 2 person dinner joint. Great staff, and loved the architecture.

Interesting environment and great varied menu with lots of creative options. I enjoy it for business lunches. Only negative is that it can get loud which I assume is due to tile floor, but the tile floor is also what makes it special and distinctive.

Meddlesome Moth has an interesting and varied menu, and the dishes we tried were all good. MM has a huge selection of draft beers, and really good cocktails. It has a lively vibe, but is not too loud. The service we received was among the best I've had in Dallas (Thank you, Hailey!) Parking is limited, so be prepared to valet. I will be back.

Nice ambiance but very loud & tables are very close together...request a booth! Food was good, but not as tasty as usual. Cesar salad was a little bland & the Thai mussels needed more spice! Steak pot pie was very tasty but needed a little more steak.

We frequent MM and have always enjoyed it. I had a reservation for 4 people for a birthday. We arrived about 5 min early and were told the only tables available we outside or the one by the front door. It was a cold night. We chose the table by the door .. every time it opened we got a blast of cold air. Shortly after we were seated another table opened up and we asked to move. Poor job of coordinating by someone. I would think that as much as we have been there and had a reservation for a week, a decent table would have been set aside for us.

Loved everything about it except our waiter. We had to keep getting his attention to order or if we needed anything, when we needed the check or anything. He walked by a lot but didnt ask if we needed anything or how everything was. The restaurant was great but was not impressed with the staff or friendliness.
