Order the Lamb Stick! I wish we had ended with it. I would have liked to explore more of the small plates. We ordered the beef marrow, the farrow veggie plate and the moth balls as well. The beef marrow was very fatty, as it's supposed to be. I would have have liked it accompanied by chimichurri instead of the salsa verde to give it a more earthy taste and I wish they hadn't cooked the capers. It made them a little too salty. The moth balls were good too but I think the cream sauce was overkill with the existing dairy. I would have liked to see it paired with a fruit reduction like cranberry or a more exotic berry to give it more complexity. The farrow veggie plate was good, not great. As for the lamb stick, the ground lamb and the seasonings were on point. I loved the hint of cinnamon. The yogurt sauce was excellent and mixing with the hummus was a good call. We should have ordered two!

Staff was very pleasant...guided us thru a wonderful dining experience. As it was our first time there, we made a wine selection, opted for the Belgian mussels & Moth Caesar salad to share as a starter. Our waiter was exceptional in his knowledge of the menu and pointed us to the shrimp & grits... outstanding dish! The service & timing was well paced...the place was packed but not too noisy...just an overall great dining experience! Would definitely go back again & explore some of the other tempting options on the menu!

Loud noise at first when we entered and the restaurant was full. Later in our time there the noise level dropped considerably and we were able to converse more easily. The food is good but not top drawer. The service and ambience are outstanding. We will definitely return.

My husband and I wanted to have a nice brunch and decided on the Meddlesome Moth. It was a busy Sunday, but we didn’t have to wait long for our reservations. We both took the waiters suggestion and had the Doughnut breakfast sandwich (homemade doughnut holding a sausage patty, bacon and fried egg). At first we were a little concerned the doughnut may be to sweet, but not to worry. Perfect blend of sweet and savory, excellent Mimosas and coffee. Wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon

Meddlesome Moth is one of my recent favorite restaurants. I discovered it several months ago and have been back several times since for brunch, lunch, and dinner. All three have excellent food options! For those of you who like a large beer list, there are tons of options! Definitely highly recommend.

Met some friends for brunch. Brunch was great...everyone enjoyed their meals. We recommend the morning buns and the waffle. Sadly, my take home salad can be best described as lackluster. I ordered a Cobb salad with prosciutto-there was one tiny strip of prosciutto and one egg in the take home box and no dressing. Disappointing for sure since it wasn’t worth the 20 dollars.

The food was great! Highly recommend the badass bacon waffle to anyone! The service was subpar. We had to keep stopping people to ask for simple items like silverware, napkins, refills on water, etc. Seemed like our waiter was extremely busy. He only came by our table 3x while we were there. Would still return because of the food and prices.

Nothing was really terrible, but nothing stood out enough to make us want to come back. The food was where everything fell short. The “moth balls” lacked a crunch that would have made them 10x better, but the truffle sauce that came with them was good. The beef tartare needed salt and flavor that the two tiny cornichons given couldn’t make up for alone. The burger and mussels were both good. The peach cobbler was underwhelming - basically canned peaches with a layer of pastry dough thrown on top. The lavender cocktail had WAY too much lavender, and it overpowered the whole drink to the point where we could smell it from the table. Our server, Patrick was great and very personable, but other than that it was just a very mediocre and disappointing dining experience.

Food is really good, but they missed the mark on some of the items we ordered while other items were spot on. I think the value is missing though on some of their items. Patatas Bravas, for example: $13 for 5 pieces of fried potato on a garlic aioli. It was good, not the best I've had, but good; still, at $13, you would expect more of it or the best of best. Not all menu items were over-priced though. Take the cod fish and chips: priced appropriately and Awesome! Overall, I would recommend and I will return.
