Great cocktails. Even better shared plates. This place is always a hit with the new people we bring.

It's a great place to meet for a business lunch. The room is quiet enough to have a conversation. The wait staff is attentive and the food is great.

My husband ordered the chicken and it came out raw. He sent it back and when it came back out 20 minutes laster it was raw again. So he had to order a different dish all together. Thankfully we arrived at the restaurant ahead of schedule and weren’t in a hurry.

Quick birthday lunch. Had the pastrami sandwich (amazing!!!), the burger (a little dry), and the steak (great taste, seared a bit too long). Fries were great! Services was too. Will be back.

The Mimosas was not good and we told the waiter she showed no concern I got the French toast sandwich and the bottom piece of bread was so soggy I couldn't eat it I was disappointed

Need to specify the steak is not a traditional cut, it’s two very small pieces for $50

Overpriced for unexciting food with smaller portions since the new executive chef arrived. Ribeye was overly charred. Shrimp & grits was eh - miss the jalapano gravy version that is now only available at brunch. Miss what Meddlesome used to be. Won't be back.

We celebrated my friends Birthday and had the perfect table out on the patio on a beautiful day!

The service was great.. we had the sweetest waitress who was so helpful with recommendations! We tried the Curry Chicken Salad and a few sides to share! All delicious!

Food is very bland and the service was not great either. Ribeye on the breakfast
sandwich was extremely dry. The chicken was also very dry and nothing was seasoned. We did not really eat out plates and left hungry. The best part of the experience was the complimentary valet. The space is nice but our experience was just not what we expected it to be. I would not recommend this place.

Let me just say the staff was amazing. The hostess and waiter were super friendly and helpful.

The food was “almost good”. It lacked flavor. Nothing was properly seasoned. At all. The risotto tots had delicious breading with zero flavor on the inside. Tasted like flavorless paste. The shrimp and grits had all the right ingredients but similarly lacked seasoning. They seem to rely heavily on the ingredients & didn’t add much to bring out the flavors. Super disappointed. This place has been on my list for years. :(

Food used to be better. We spent $15 on half cooked carrots. Bone marrow barley had anything in them. The quality doesn't match the price. The wine and mussels were great! As well as the service.

There must be a change of chef or direction in which the restaurant is going from our last visit. Ordered the ribeye at MKT price, was expecting an actual steak and received two pieces that maybe amounted to a 6oz portion for the price of a full steak by the same meat company at another establishment in downtown Dallas. Not only was it on the small side but also contained inedible chewy sinewy pieces as well. Menu could use a little transparency there. Had their “carrot cake” as well and wasn’t fond of how dry and unappetizing it was, there were dry carrots sprinkled on top that tasted like stale veggie chips. Drinks and their service were good, but food was definitely not up there.

The menu sounded good, but the food just didn't deliver. I hate to say it, but it was bland and not nearly as flavorful as the menu description. Certainly not worth the price.
