Food was great! This was my dates first time there and she was very impressed. I see why the restaurant has been around for so long. Always a safe bet when you want great food and a really good atmosphere.

The place is nice, food is great. Service was a bit slow simply because it got busy fast. Also need to work on the ventilation as a lot of the smoke smell from the kitchen was emanating into the dining area.

We have dined at Meddlesome Moth many times and we will definitely be back! Love the unique menu and atmosphere and were lucky enough to snag a booth under the stained glass windows. The staff are always very friendly and accommodating. The cherry cobbler was oh so good and a special treat to share as we were celebrating my son's birthday.

AMAZING!! Last night was my first time at Meddlesome Moth, we came with a group of 8 and although we had a reservation and had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated, the food was absolutely UNREAL!! Sonny was our waiter and he was great, super knowledgeable and friendly. As for the food, EVERYTHING was delicious. We did all shared plates and tried almost all of the shared plates options. I would say that is definitely the way to go!! We were able to taste so many different items & everything was SOOO good!! YOU HAVE TO TRY Meddlesome Moth!

Took our son here and it did not disappoint! We started with the mussels which were very good! Then we had the very spicy duck wings that were out of this world! We are shared the Fish and chips and the stew pie. We were very full after that so no desert. The prices for the bottles of wines was very reasonable. We share a cote du rhone and it was fantastic. Loved the energy in our waiters.

Great selection of beers, server was great, food was tasty with some creative pairings of flavors (pork belly w/ lime & toasted marshmallow was my favorite). Only knocking a couple of stars off because we were sat at the table right next to the server station and the gentleman responsible for rolling all the paper table toppers which was very loud and a little tough to ignore. I would recommend sitting a safe distance from all that cacophony, otherwise definitely worth a visit.

My Incredible Hip 30 something daughter recommended this place - I made reservations for 8:45 PM Friday night and then after notifying everyone looked at the menu. Almost frightened me off - I called my daughter and told her this place may be too cool for me and your mom even though we are pretty adventuresome ...………..long story short - we went anyway and this place was lights out incredible. From the reception at valet parking to the hostess everyone treated us like we were world famous stars.....the food was over the top the service was extraordinary and I have recommended the MM to all the folks on my team where I work. What a place - you will not be disappointed

Our waitress literally brought everything opposite of what we ordered.
1) asked her bring a non-hoppy beer. She brought the complete opposite
2) ordered steamed mussels and specifically said belgium, not the Thai. We got that
3) ordered bread pudding and she brought the chocolate mousse.
I’ve ne we experienced anything like it.

Love the small plate choices. Everything was executed very well with great flavor and we can’t wait to go back. Big fan of the Fig BBQ Ribs- they were “fall off the bone” tender with such a great flavor from the dry rub. Also, as simple as hummus is, theirs has a small “bite” tomorrow that took it up several levels. Also, try the Thai mussels- the broth was delicious and a meal in its own.

We came for a late lunch, and ended up getting the dinner menu. I have eaten here for brunch and lunch several times, and the dinner menu did not disappoint. Our favorites included the Black Magic Shrimp, Belgian style mussels, and Burrata, but I have honestly never had anything short of fantastic food at Meddlesome Moth. My husband and I always bring out of town guests, and have had large gatherings of friends for brunch at this establishment. Food and service is exceptional. I highly recommend for any occasion!

The food is always wonderful and the atmosphere is always energetic but this was our first time having service that was sub par. She was cute but took a long time to get drinks and orders and didn’t seem to really care.

We ordered the herders pie, there was very little meat, and mostly pearl onions. The cauliflower mash on top was very runny and tasteless. We ordered the Frito Misto as an appetizer and it was mostly vegetables and only a couple oysters.Pretty loud ambience.

New Year’s Day celebration! We all loved our food orders. The best breakfast potatoes I’ve had in a long time. The duckfat donut breakfast sandwich was so good with a blend of sweet and savory.
Christian was an really good waiter, friendly and fun and took care of us.
