    Great meal and service. I asked for a quiet table and they seated us in the back where it was private and quiet. Perfect! Thanks so much for a lovely evening.

    Had not been to Mercury in many years and was mainly a lunch client previously. We had some friends from France and wanted to try something in the area. Four people had four different entrees and every meal was perfect in EVERY aspect. The food was outstanding. Will be back again soon!! Highly recommend and I am NOT a big review writer.

    Business meal with 6 of us and the experience was perfect. The wait staff really worked to allow me to be a proper host. My guests each had steaks and I went with the duck. Everything prepared to perfection. Great wine selections for dinner, and a tawny port afterwards. I recommend highly

    The Mercury was mediocre at best. We went for the lunch burger menu. While visually the interior (of the restaurant) and the plating (of the food) were both appealing, the actual taste was average at best. I've had far better burgers at Haystacks. One of the group had the fish sandwich and remarked he had far better at Hillstone. The restaurants gives an "old money" vibe, and the service - from valet to serve - was impeccable. But the food ... that was a miss. And the food was why we came.

    Still the best restaurant in Dallas – Daniel our server was very attentive, there at the right time and very personable. Oh and I forgot, it starts with the minute you pull up and I should remember his name car valet who is the most personable guy in Dallas – he should run for mayor! Are the food presentation, ingredients with the taste are all fantastic. My wife always orders the Cracklin chicken as it’s just done perfectly. Chris continues to oversee the kitchen and making sure everything gets out without delay.

    A party of four. 3 meals served together. 1 late and not as ordered. One of the 3 had clearly been sitting for some time prior to being served. This was not the Mercury service of the past.

    despite having made a reservation and received and responded to a text confirmation, my name was not in the system. this was embarrassing. the waiter Mohammed ruined the evening and birthday celebration. we ordered a small bottle of sake and specified which one we wanted BY NAME. mohammed served the sake so the bottle was obscured. when refilling a glass by ourselves at the end of the bottle, we were shocked to discover this was not the bottle ordered but another that was $20 more expensive and a type we specifically told himwe didn’t want. his excuse was that they ran out of the bottle ordered. i asked why he didn’t come offer me an alternative an he did not answer. i ordered Nigiri sushi and he brought sashimi. their menu inaccurately lists Sushi and Sashimi instead of Nigiri and Sashimi. I clearly said sushi and pointed to what i wanted on the menu. I pointed to the wording on the menu that said an order was 2 pieces. he seemed confused but confirmed 2 pieces. A bowl of sashimi with 3 pieces of each was delivered instead. it took several minutes before i could get anyones attention. the sashimi was taken away. a few minutes later Mohammed appeared with the same bowl and told me that’s what i ordered and set the bowl in front of me. he was rude and confrontational. i showed him the menu and refreshed his memory of my order and our interaction. he continued to protest and i told him i didn’t order it and i wasn’t going to eat it. he grabbed the bowl and left. a few minutes later a gentleman in a suit (presumably a manager) brought THE SAME BOWL back to me and I explained the situation. he understood and went away to place the correct order. in the meantime, the other food arrived and i was the only one without a plate. my wife had ordered a steak dish. Mohammed had asked her if she wanted it Medium Rare. She said “No, I want it Medium.” He acknowledged medium. The steak came out Medium Rare and closer to rare. AWFUL experience!!!

    Not one of my best experiences at the mercury. Service was ok but they have set the bar very high. Our waiter was just adequate. They just weren’t as attentive as we have grown to expect from the Mercury staff. The food was as good as always. Maybe I’m getting old, but it seemed quite noisy. I will be back to give them another chance, based on their outstanding record for over 20 years.
