My husband & I came to Dallas for a weekend get-a-way & loved this cozy little spot. It was great for a date night, but also casual enough to be a nice hang-out spot. We sat on the patio, which had lovely ambience. Our waiter was great, & because the plates are to share, we got to try a lot of different things. The duck wings & rabbit pot pie were the bomb, I’d eat them again right now.

The food was fair, the waiter spilled a glass of wine on me and gave me a half-hearted sorry. The restaurant did not offer to comp any of our dinners. I called to complain the next day and they said the manager would call me and I never received a call. Very disappointing

Love the place. And the food. $24 for shrimp & grits is a little steep. 4 shrimp and a reduced portion of grits. You can do better.

I have tried Meddlesome Moth a couple of times already and every time I try to believe the hype, it just falls kind of flat. The food was okay. The cocktails had so much going on that you're not really sure what you were supposed to taste. The same could be said of the food. I probably won't recommend Meddlesome Moth to a friend.

Your entrees and drinks are too expensive. $29 is too pricey for a shrimp entree and $9.00 is too pricey for well vodka. We would come more often if the prices were better.

The service was POOR...Alexis was our server. She didn’t check back on the table... the wait for drinks after ordering was long. Didn’t refill our sodas or water.
The wait for dessert was VERY long... when I was finally able to flag Alexis down, she said people weren’t “in the kitchen” that’s why there is such a delay.
“People” not in the kitchen? It’s a damn restaurant!!!!!!
The passion fruit mousse was terrible.
Overall the entrees were meh.
But to come in for lunch on a rainy Saturdayat 2:45pm and STILL be waiting for the check at 3:15pm is POOR.

Been here three times, and loved it! Word of warning though, don't get the Caesar salad. Probably the worst Caesar salad I've ever had. Which is such a disconnect from the rest of the menu because everything else is fantastic!~

Has been awhile since I have been to Meddlesome Moth. Appetizer Hummus and chicken skewers were delicious, but we should have stopped there. Dinner was forgettable, sadly. Caesar salad was tasteless, Cobb salad was nothing special. Outdoor patio was so nice, but riddled with mosquitos and foul sewer odor from the street. I like this place and will probably chalk this up to a fluke.

Food and service were great. Noise level was very high, even though place was only about one third full - perhaps due to everyone being seated around tables at edge of room and noise bouncing off of walls??? Hmmmm....

The food was great, the service was attentive, we enjoyed ordering share plates and sampling a lot of different dishes. We were so glad we got out of our usual restaurant rut and went to the Meddlesome Moth. Those from our party who had not been there before were enthused. Dinner was what it should be - delicious and fun!
