haven't been here in about a year cause last two times mothinator was not as in the past. tried again today, still not good. somehow it just doesn't have the oomph of years past. missing something. should be Rueben meets Cuban....No longer! bread gets too soggy (even asked for TOASTY) and flavor is flat. hubby had BLT, said it was OK. he ordered chips and got French fries. expediter missed it and so did the server. but he did like them. will be a while before we try again but mothinator has been put to rest. too bad.

Everything was great except the handicap parking. There is one van accessible spot which was being used by the valet service. This spot should be reserved exclusively for wheelchair van access. They had also blocked the striped handicap loading area with a car. This is illegal. We were told valet was full and we could try to find another parking spot on the back side of the restaurant. Not really helpful for someone in a wheelchair that needs the loading zone to lower the ramp to get out of the van. We finally lowered the ramp right onto the sidewalk. NEVER block the handicap loading zone or turn away a handicap vehicle from valet service.

I’ve been there twice for brunch, and the food and service are very good. My only complaint is the temperature in the restaurant. Take a sweater because it’s about 65 degrees inside.

Great, low-key cool atmosphere. The cocktails and beer selection were very good. We had the campari tomato burrata shared plate as an appetizer, the rabbit pot pie and steak pot pie for entrees, the cherry cobbler for dessert and every bit of it was outstanding. I had the rabbit pot pie and so am partial to it, as it was the perfect blend of rabbit, fennel, swiss chard, and mushrooms and JUST GET IT AND EAT IT, OKAY...and my dining partner very much enjoyed his steak pot pie.

The waitstaff were very responsive without being intrusive. Highly recommended!

I love their selection of beers, something for everyone. I've never even tried their wine, the beer list is so extensive. Their mussels are just fantastic, as are the scallops and the bbq shrimp. Good but not outstanding - the rabbit pot pie and the burger. We always look forward to our meals at Meddlesome Moth....see you in a few weeks!

Being a Dallas native, I wanted to take my friends from out of town to an affordable, unique and delicious brunch place in an underrated part of town. Everything from the food to the service to the music was spectacular. It was my second time eating at Meddlesome Moth and it always leaves people impressed.

We had several items: steak pot pie, Wagyu carpaccio, moth balls, and the special spinach dip. the pot pie was the least remarkable of the four, with the spinach dip being the most intriguing and best dish we tried. The Moth balls are very good, and the signature cocktails were excellent. As to the ambiance, the stained glass and the art on the walls were unique and made for a great feel, but the noise level with all the hard surfaces and the open floor plan made it extremely difficult to hear the server or each other. We arrived at 8:45 PM so by the time we were halfway through we could hear each other because the venue was about half full, but I would not come for dinner during prime time due to the din.

The food at Meddlesome Moth is amazing. Most of the clientele are the hipster/Millennial type, but once you get past that, the restaurant is amazing. Coffee is served in a french press, and was quite possibly some of the best coffee I've ever had.

I’ve had decent experiences, but the restaurant wasn’t memorable. It’s good for all occasions (but notice that I didn’t say outstanding or my number one recommendation). Simple, large room, mostly beer, and I’ve been two maybe three times and I can’t remember what I ordered. Again, it was good but not noteworthy.
