Food was very good and so was the service. We thought the noise level in the restaurant was too loud. We were at a corner booth and you could barely hear the people talk across the table from you. Probably will not go back.

As always, the food was great, the service very good - and I really like the feel of the restaurant. We’ve been many times, typically weekend lunch. My only note would be the brunch menu is a bit limited, but the only thing I order is the chicken salad sandwich (excellent) so I guess if that was the only thing on the menu I’d be okay. Great place.

This is a cool spot for sure. This was my first visit, after being recommended by a friend. Great shareable plates, drinks, atmosphere, and service. Sunny was our waiter and he was great. Very friendly and prompt. Will definitely be back!

We discovered Meddlesome Moth a few years ago on a whim and have RAVED about their brunch ever since! However, they have shortened their menu and no longer have some of our favorites (I LOVED the pork cheek hash!). We took my mom there once and were underwhelmed by the quality of food (gritty greens) but still held out hope! On our most recent visit, the breakfast French toast sandwich was mostly soggy since only one side of the bread was actually toasted, the breading didn’t stick to the chicken, and the jalapeño gravy tasted mostly like flour. The quality of food has gone downhill recently, which makes us so sad because we love the ambiance of the venue and the service is always top notch! Their sticky buns, however, continue to be absolutely delightful in every way!

Every time our company travels to Dallas from the north east, we look forward to coming to Meddlesome Moth. Unfortunately, this visit, we shared 6 different appetizers hoping to have one good one and none of them met our expectations.

First time to the Oak Lawn area, and Meddlesome Moth, and I loved both! The restaurant and the area are super charming! The food was good and quick! The service made it even more of a nice experience! I'll be back!

Last night’s dinner at the Meddlesome Moth was a highlight of a busy day with my firm. We ordered just about everything on the Shareable portion of the menu and loved it all. Notable items were the potatoes, grilled avocado, the bread pudding, and the cocktails.

My friend and I went to Meddlesome Moth for brunch, and I highly recommend the French Toast sandwich. The potatoes on the side were also delicious. The valet service is nice, but there was a line that went out into the street and there are not really any other parking options. Our waitress did not come around too often, but the food came out very quickly.

Amazing service and the food was good, but the brunch menu definitely leaned more towards lunch. There were no sweet dishes on the menu (i.e. french toast was a savory sandwich; no pancakes/waffles; etc.), so the only option was to go for a very hearty breakfast, lunch, or avocado toast. The quality of our food was amazing though and service was outstanding.

Incredible experience. The new menu, by Executive Chef Josh Bonee, has so many unique items to select from. I love how there are shareable plates.
The mussels were hands down the best mussels I have ever eaten.

Energetic and lively atmosphere. We loved the stained glass and decor. Food was delicious, especially the chiopino, shrimp and polenta and ribs. Service could have been more attentive but it was very busy so it’s understandable. It was very loud and hard to hear one another but we all had a great time.

We had a part of 10, so the hostess put us in the in Mansfield Room. The table was offset from the rest of the dinning area, providing a more secluded experience. Our waitress was fantastic and plates barely took any time at all to come out after we ordered. The food was exceptional and the shared plates really allowed us to get a good idea of what the chefs had to offer.
