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.

Always keep coming back for dress up and
going out for date night even though it is in a strip shopping mall. Love the ambience, the food is excellent and the staff professional!

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!

We had a lovely dinner! Our server was Mehdi and he was very knowledgeable about the menu. Our table had the Wedge salad, Tomato and Mozzarella salad, Shrimp and Grits, Crackling Chicken, Pork Chop, and the Bread pudding. Everything was delicious, and the service was excellent!

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.

Food, ambiance was excellent. Our waiter appeared to be new? He never introduced himself, asked us about our wine selections before we even saw dinner menu, we said we wanted to start with cocktails but he didn't give us cocktail menu so basically just got what he recommended which turned out okay. He never told us of any specials, again we had to ask him when we heard another waiter telling table next to us. We never were offered sushi menus either. Overall, we were not impressed with service level of waiter, I would rate a 1 or 2 at best. Hostess, manager/sommelier were great. We will definitely dine here again but for such a reputable and upscale restaurant we were shocked by server. We will be asking to be seated in a seasoned servers area next time we book reservations, etc.

Fantastic! The Copper Caynon Roll was wonderful. Husband had duck and he said it was fantastic. Beautifully presented, it was tender, moist and flavorful. The room was a little too dark, hard to read the menu, but still a five star overall. Our waiter was very nice and did a great job. It was a great first time visit. We will be back!
