Overall, the experience was okay but not great. Our server was very helpful and attentive. But the restaurant was dark, dated and overpriced. This was my first time and I heard this place was good 20 years ago but now it just seems stuck in time. The menu was very broad but our food selection was pretty good thanks to the recommendations of our server. Now that I have been, I can check the box but probably won’t be going back as there are way too many other restaurant options at that price point that are far better.

The food was excellent. Beware of the pink butter if you area pescatarian or vegetarian--it's liver pate. Wish they would have explained it when it arrived. Everything else was fantastic. Excellent service and the miso cod is spectacular

Food was exceptional and fairly priced. Sole and veal chop were perfectly prepared and delicious. Drinks were way overpriced $17 for Basil Hayden on rocks). Service was fine after a bad start. We sat at our table for almost 10 minutes before our waiter came by.

We sat in the wine room for a lovely meal with friends. The room is small and the noise level is a lot lower than in the main dining room. The food and service were top notch, as usual at The Mercury!

This was our first visit and I was surprised at the noise volume. It's very loud. We did, however, have a very nice evening. Our cocktails were very good and pan seared shrimp appetizer was great. I had the lamb chops and they were really great. My husband had the filet and was not as impressed. My son in law had the pork chop and said it was fantastic. We will be back.

Tonight was an excellent evening dining at The Mercury at Preston and Forest in Dallas. From the cheerful greeting from Aloy the valet attendant through multiple interactions with the Managers, host and wait staff, we felt welcome for sure. Jeff was our server this Friday evening and the service was spot on at every turn. He explained the off-the-menu specials, promptly took our beverage orders and gave us ample time before taking our dinner order. The food was excellent, the atmosphere energetic, Jeff’s service was exemplary and everyone agreed it was a thoroughly enjoyable night out! We will return very soon for sure.

We went for a friends birthday celebration. It was just the four besties. Our waiter, John, was simply amazing and accommodating. If all of the waiters are like John, we will definitely be back because he set the bar really high. His suggestions for the food were dead on. He knew his stuff and we appreciated that and hope he knows how much we appreciated him. Thank you John

After we received our entrees, the server disappeared and was not seen until after we flagged down 2 others, and the maitre d, in 3 separate attempts to order coffee. Then we had to ask for our check which was pitched unceremoniously in the center of the table. Waiter seemed to have been chewed out perhaps and he took it out on us.

Our first experience dining at The Mercury was exceptional. Tanner took great care of us and did a phenomenal job. The food was exquisite, the filet mignon was the best I have had so far at any restaurant. The atmosphere was high-end, romantic and quiet. Thanks to Chef Ward for the amazing cuisine and thank you Tanner and Matt for making us feel comfortable and welcomed. DEFINITELY have to try this spot if you’re in Dallas and want to take your spouse out for a romantic evening or impress an important client.

I have been going to this restaurant for years and the food and service have only gotten better over time. The miso cod, the lamb shank, the tuna mignon--just to name of few of my favorites. The service, even in this late covid environment has been top notch.
