    We needed a fun, upbeat place for dinner near the Hilton Anatole. Had heard good things but never been here. It was perfect for our gathering of young and older out of town visitors. I think we ordered one of everything on the menu. Our server was amazing, sorry I forgot her name but she’s from Cuba. Cocktails and mock tails flowed. We left happy for sure!!

    The food was amazing as always, but the service was very slow. Although our server was very nice, she did not come and check on us while we dined. It was a bit noisy, and there's need to be more light in the restaurant. This was not my first visit, and it won't be my last.

    Food was above average. The server didn’t know much though. The meat and cheese board was a little underwhelming, however the Thai muscles were the biggest and best muscles I’ve ever had.

    The top-notch service and interesting menu has kept this place in business for a long time, while many other restaurants/gastropubs have come and gone. This place is an essential Dallas Oak Lawn and Design District anchor, always worth a visit. Expert cocktail craftsmanship as well. Inviting atmosphere for groups, couples, and even single visitors.

    Seated upon opening at 10am. Waitstaff must’ve had a rough night and took a while to get their bearings. Initially ordered coffee and milk punch. Coffee arrived room temp, and milk punch never arrived at all. Followed up with French press, only slightly better. Food was good — egg white frittata, rustic skillet, and sticky buns. We’ll give it another shot and hope the service and drinks are better next time.

    Another fantastic experience at the Moth. Great set up for eclipse viewing in the beer garden. High quality lunch choices and an ever changing beer and wine menu. Our favorite place in town for dinner, brunch or just lunch at the bar. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

    A lovely night~ My wife and I came for the Orin Swift wine dinner, and could not be more pleased. The wine presentation was engaging, and the food itself was spectacular. I loved the chef's passionate descriptions of her dishes, and they were all SO GOOD. She's clearly a master of her craft. Meddlesome Moth knocked it out of the park with this one.

    Our group of 6 enjoyed brunch today. Everyone enjoyed the experience and the food. The Mother and child reunion was my pick. The chicken was seasoned well, with nice crunch. The grits were cooked perfectly. More gravy would have been perfect, but I love gravy. We shared sticky buns after our entree. They were a good selection, not overly sweet. We sat inside, while the ambiance is nice, the noise level was a bit high to be able to hear each other in our group. Our server was attentive and friendly.

    This was excellent choice for a Sunday brunch! We started with spicy bloody Mary’s, which were delicious along with a sticky bun appetizer. I thoroughly enjoyed the egg white frittata!! fresh and yummy, tasty, healthy! The only issue we had was that our food order was misplaced so getting our main meal was slow. That said we were celebrating a birthday and they offered a birthday dessert!
