    I usually love this place. Every time I come to Dallas we have brunch here but this trip was my worst experience. Food was good but service was horrible. We wanted to order another drink but our waitress I guess wanted us out so just gave us the check. She didn’t check on us but maybe once. If this was my first experience I would have not been back

    This was our first visit here and would come back if ever I the area again. Two of us had salads which were delicious and another had the roasted chicken and everyone’s plates were cleared by the time we were done eating. The service was excellent and loved the decor.

    We were very impressed with the quality of the food and the generous portions. Ahi tuna skewers were prepared perfectly with just enough seasoning and sauce! Ceasar salad was one of the very best we have ever had! Ribeye was delicious! We will definitely be back!

    I've been to meddlesome moth many times with good experiences but this last time was terrible! My group went for Sunday brunch and everything was off. Our carafe of "sangria" tasted like water with food coloring and there was minimal alcohol in it. Didn't even feel a sight buzz after drinking the whole carafe. My friend's omelet came with no seasoning. Our over medium eggs had runny egg whites and did not look like it had been fried at all. Our fried chicken was dry and hard. Our waitress in particular was awful. Barely came back to check on us and took a good 30 minutes for us to pay our bill. Thankfully other staff members were nice and helped us track her down. Not sure what the problem was this time but they need to fix it ASAP. Probably won't be coming back a while

    We arrived early with hopes of checking in and sitting at the bar while we waited. Instead we were suprised to be seated right away. The service was great. I had the Flew the Coop cocktail and my date enjoyed an Old Fashioned to start. We enjoyed the guacamole and for brunch I got the biscuits with sausage gravy and while my date happily picked the chicken and waffles. Sitting at the table we felt like we were in our own little world amongst the incoming/outoing guests. It was a great way to start the day and we look forward to returning.

    Started with coffee and really loved it. Friend and I also split a carafe of mimosas and guacamole. Both were spot on and great for the value. My friend had the yogurt and a biscuit and said they both were yummy. I had the pork hash. The shredded pork had some flavor and both it and the breakfast potatoes it came with were cooked to perfection, but the meal as a whole just lacked some flavor/kick for my overall preference. Really enjoyed the ambience for the most part. The table next to us had a baby that kept squealing, which took a little away from the overall experience, but can’t really blame the restaurant for that…

    I had the farro risotto with shrimp along with the broccolini and it was simply a party of flavors in my mouth. We finished with an apricot olive oil cake that was lovely and not overly sweet. All staff were very pleasant. Our group loved all of it and I would definitely do this again.

    You have a great restaurant! Good is awesome! My only point of improvement is the service and the details - - asked for a lime…never got it. - asked for soy sauce and wasabi….half way done with meal before I got it and only because I asked the busboy to get my servers attention. Then she realized she forgot. And didn’t say a word when she dropped it off. It really isn’t that big of a deal, but again…it’s all in the details. We will be back! Good food and ambiance. Thanks! M

    Loved everything about this place with one exception. We saw bone marrow on the menu and since none of the six of us had ever had it, we thought we'd give it a go. Sadly, thumbs down from all six. You can take that one off the menu and move up to 5 stars. Server was awesome as well. Will be back the next time I'm in town.

    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.
