    Saturday date night, seated in covered patio (has a/c, but still was a bit warm). We shared some of their To Share plates. 1) The Risotto Tots, which had 8 tots with a yuzu aioli - delicious! 2) Shrimp & Grits, with 5 shrimp, grits & a jalapeno gravy. Very good but the shrimp were a little too salty. 3) Dr. Pepper Ribs were very good also. Definitely sweeter than the norm with the Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce. This was more than enough food for dinner - we couldn't finish the ribs. Our server was very good, made sure the next plate arrived just as we were finishing the one before. For drinks, we had a 4-flight tasting & the Veuve du Vernay. Both refreshing for summertime. Great experience!

    Service was abysmal. Waiter only came over to our table to take our order, deliver the food, and deliver our checks. We were seated for an hour and a half and all ran out of water and drinks and he never came by to check on us.

    Beer selection is fabulous. Some very interesting appetizers. Although I would pass on the mothballs next time. Service was good, if a little slow. Entrees were excellent and piping hot. The Meddlesome Moth gets my recommendation.

    Great food, great drinks. Went there to celebrate the Dad of our family for Father's day - party of 3. It was 12:30 on a Sunday, I think our waitress was either overwhelmed (didn't seem too busy to us) or she had a late night out and was paying the price next day at work. Other than that we would definitely go back.

    The food was great, the service not so much. We were seated outside and it felt as though our server forgot about us. She was only at the table three times - for drink order, food order and drop off the check. Additionally, I understand that to each their own, but our server was not wearing a bra and her shirt material was WAY too thin. When she leaned over to drop off plates or refill water, it was very uncomfortable as her very visible nipple was right in our faces.

    An absolutely horrible dining experience, food was inedible, how dare they call them selves chefs and charge $20 a plate for garbage. With all of the options in the city, DO NOT GO HERE. My husband and I shared 5 different shared plate options 1 of the 5 were edible. The fried chicken skins were so soaked in grease it was like eating out of the bottom of a dirty fryer. The bone marrow good but sadly served with frozen stale bread that would take a chainsaw to cut through. Saving grace was the pork belly with marshmallow fluff but I mean cmon it’s pork belly it speaks for itself. Next was the “seared” tuna lol far from seared they barely put it on a hot plate it was grey and disgusting. Lastly was the shrimp and grits but by this point in the meal I was so disgusted that we didn’t even attempt to try it. Sorry Meddlesome moth but DO BETTER!

    Not many places serve bone marrow so just that one entry made this a “must try.” We we’re not disappointed! Everything on the menu was so delightfully described we wished there was a “one bite of each” selection. No such luck… We settled on some nice leggy wines by the glass and the marrow served with a roasted garlic flower to start. Next came pork loin with a delicious apple reduction and melt-in-your-mouth skin-on salmon dusted with panko on celeriac purée! Since we were celebrating, chocolate pot o crème (Mexican style with cinnamon) and chocolate raspberry torte! Fun craft cocktails Vibrant (and young) clientele. All in an expansive room with large bar and well landscaped outdoor space! Did I forget to mention three Massive stained glass pieces depicting Rock-n-Roll legends Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and … - rescued from an early Hard Rock location that had closed. A Dallas Must Visit conveniently located in the Design District. Complimentary valet parking so no worries there!

    We usually love the Moth for brunch. Yesterday was bad though. The Kimichee fries were cold, our entrees were just ok. And the service was AWFUL! Definitely a bad day for them. Not worth the time, money or drive to get there.

    After many great experiences, Meddlesome Moth appears to really fallen in terms of service and quality. Yesterday (5/22/22), the service was very poor--taking over 15 minutes for a server to greet us and take our drink order. Then it took another 10 minutes to get our drinks, which we promptly drank, and then the empty glasses sat on the table until we finally got some attention from another server when our food finally came. After the wait, our order came out incorrect, the biscuits were hard (stale?), and the eggs looked like they had been thrown on the plate along with the salad with the toppings on the bottom. The experience was embarrassing because I had chosen MM for a business brunch, and my guests were extremely underwhelmed.

    We go a couple of times a year and are never disappointed. Collin was a most knowledgeable waiter. Best part of the experience! Oysters were fresh. Caesar was great. Pimento cheese was just OK as were chicken lollipops, but food is usually an afterthought for us. It's the great tap selections we love and they never disappoint!

    Almost everything we ate needed seasoning. Salt primarily. The grits were completely flavorless and not cooked all the way. The jalapeño gravy was disappointing. The egg salad sandwich was quite good.The sticky buns were outstanding. The service was average. The ambience was very nice. We won’t be going back
