The Manhattan Room, which seems to have Austin stone and pictures of Colorado, was very cold and is very different than the main dining room.

Food was superb! Great Dover Sole and Veal Milanaise. Appetizers and salads were excellent, particularly the couscous carbonara, which had an amazing flavor, and the pear and roquefort salad, which was delicious without being heavy. Desserts were beautifully presented and excellent. Our only complaint was the noise level. On a busy Saturday night it was very hard to have a conversation.

Great birthday dinner at Mercury Grill. They were welcoming and excited we were celebrating a birthday in the restaurant. Service was great. Delicious food. The gnocchi with mushrooms side was amazing, highly recommend. Quite a crowd for a Tuesday evening and tables are close. Mercury brought us a complimentary birthday dessert that was delicious.

My wife and I dine here often. Sometimes accompanied by our daughter and her husband but this Friday evening we were alone. We made a 7 pm reservation asking for our preferred table and upon arrival we were seated without delay. Our server this evening was Tanner and he showed up promptly and asked if we wanted to start with our usual cocktails and we confirmed that we would. At about the same time a young helper arrived with water and a very nice basket of bread along with butter and their house made Pate. My wife noted that the restaurant was nearly full and that the bar was also packed when we entered. It was a lively atmosphere which was what we were seeking. Tanner returned with our cocktails and informed us that the soup was their excellent shrimp and sausage gumbo (pointing out it was one of my favorites) and he also told us about several off-the-menu specials they were featuring. We each started with the gumbo and I selected a 9 ounce filet and my wife chose their featured twin tournedos of beef, each consisting of a 4 ounce filet with one topped with spicy Dynamite topper and the other with Oscar topper. We added creamed spinach and twice baked mashers as sides this evening. Upon receiving our entrees we were pleased to see the cook temperatures on the steaks matched our request and everything else was spot on as well. Tanner circled back often to check on us and promptly fulfilled our requests for a glass of wine to accompany our entrees. The helpers were around often to refill water glasses as well. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was dynamic and fun, Tanner provided outstanding service, and the entire staff made us feel welcome from the moment Aloy the valet greeted us upon arrival until until he retrieved our car and bade us goodnight at the end of our meal. Needless to say we will be back very soon and we highly recommend The Mercury!

First time dining here as a regular customer rather than for a private party. The reputation of the restaurant is what prompted us the make the reservation.

Service was friendly, and we didn’t feel rushed. In fact, it was probably a bit slow ( but that can be due to understaffing due to COVID).

LOUD! My wife was 2 feet away and I couldn’t hear her unless she yelled. Couldn’t hear the server either. The clientele was mixed, leaning to the 30/40-somethings, which I prefer to the senior set. Lighting was a bit too dark for my taste, but not necessarily a deal-breaker.

The food was good. My wife had Black Cod, based on server recommendation, which she enjoyed. I had chicken-fried fillet, was was a bit salty but good.
My issue is that the food was JUST good and for what we paid, I would have expected exceptional food.

Hard to say what my impression would have been pre-COVID, so if we ever get back to normal, I may consider going back.

Outstanding menu…the kind that makes it very difficult to decide, so everyone at the table orders strategically so you can all get a taste! Ambiance is great, it’s a sexy place. Service is very good, staff is upbeat and very good at what they do. This was an outstanding experience. Our server Allie was fantastic. The ladies at the bar were fun and engaging as well. We will be back!

Not as impressed with the lunch menu as with the dinner menu
We were a party of two seated in the long booth area right next to a table of four; our tables were only inches apart; so close we could have been one party of six; it was even hard to carry on separate conversations; it was not that busy or even close to full, I would think distancing would still be considered with the resurgence of CoVid….
The Mercury has been one of my favorite restaurants for years and still is 😋

Overall things went fairly well except for somewhat lengthy intervals between ordering our appetizers and receiving them (30 minutes or so) and then a similar interval between ordering our entrees and receiving them as well. This is very unusual for The Mercury and we just chalked it up to our server being overloaded and the Sushi kitchen running well behind the main kitchen on this particular Thursday evening. We dine here frequently and rarely experience anything other than excellent service so we were not overly concerned by this less than perfect evening. The food was excellent as usual but their was some frustration among our party which diminished the overall experience somewhat.

NE Clam Chowder - Excellent
Sliders - charred and not worth the price
Black Miso Cod - nicely cooked but missing flavor profile one would expect
Service - hurried and not very responsive to feedback

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at The Mercury. The service was fabulous - everyone from the parking valet to the waiter to the manager were very friendly and truly worked to make the experience enjoyable. The restaurant has a very nice wine list, and the food was good, with a touch of French training evident. We are looking forward to returning to this restaurant.

I ordered a medium rare steak that arrived medium well, when we sent it back the waitress said it would be a while, and it was a “while”. In the meantime my husbands food got cold. It’s steak, I don’t understand why it wasn’t faster coming back. When it did come back it was rare plus. They offered us a free dessert, we asked that they take the steak off which they did. This has been one of our favorite restaurants so it was a huge disappointment for us.

Food was wonderful! The mozzarella and tomato salad was not your average salad - it was delicious. We had a shrimp special and tuna mignon which were outstanding. It is a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of Dallas.
