    The service was very very poor which is usually not the case. There was a huge party of women near us that took most of the wait staff's time. We had to wait nearly 30 minutes for our cocktails. I realize it isn't the wait staff's problem...they were just understaffed. In my opinion that large of a party should have been in a private room away from the normal restaurant parties. Hopefully, this is just a one time occurance. We usually have very good service.

    Don't get to The Mercury that often and had an appointment in the area. Took my wife to lunch and it was wonderful. The riggatoni with chicken was perfect. Pasta aldente, chicken perfectly tender, and the mushroom sauce was delicous.

    Food and service were excellent but I must share that my husband and I were surprised and disappointed to be seated in the sushi bar with all the families for Valentine’s Day. Not quite the atmosphere we would have chosen. I can understand why you choose to put all the kids away from your main dining area, but you also put 2 couples in that room. We made the best of it as we always do but not the evening we wanted or needed after a busy week.

    Second visit in month and decided we need to go more frequently, From the warm bread and pate, to the perfectly prepared tuna and veal - every appetizer and entrée exceeded our expectations. Service was the perfect blend of attentive and non intrusive, as well as patient and professional. Menu was reasonably priced, wine list extensive a few lower cost options would have been appreciated, and the selection of food thoughtfully created. Mercury deserves to be a Dallas classic.

    Food and ambience were amazing as always. Our server didn’t seem to be very attentive after we ordered drinks and appetizers. (We did not order entrees, which shouldn’t matter but may be why.) I would still go back though.

    We had a good time at The Mercury. The sushi was uninspired. Salads were generally good. One of the guests ordered Halibut. It showed up a few minutes after the other entrees. Sadly, it was cold. When the server came back about five minutes after delivering the fish he said “I wish you would have told me.” Would have had he been there. By that time everyone else was mostly done with entrees. The mushroom risotto was outstanding. Lamb shank was a hit. We will still come back but this was an unusual off night.

    All around fantastic! Food, service, atmosphere. Wait staff attentive when we need them, allowed us space when we didn’t. Noise level was such that we were able to visit with those at our table and not hear every other conversation at nearby tables. Well worth the price.

    We went to the Mercury for the first time Jan 19, '24 for my son's birthday. The cocktails and food and service and ambiance were all AMAZING--- we started with Tuna Tartare and Heirloom tomato salad... both were delicious and the presentation impressive. My son and I had the Mercury Old Fashioned made with Devil's River Rye whiskey--- I make OFs at home quite well myself, but that cocktail was superb. My wife and son both got the lamb shank--- literally fall off the bone tender with polenta and vegetables. I had the rib eye which was one of the most juicy, tender, delicious perfectly medium rare steaks I have had--- 5-star steakhouse quality IMHO--- and I love Pappas and Bob's Steakhouses. We shared sides of creamed spinach (delicious but small portion), onion rings (crunchy and tender), mac n cheese (creamy, tender) and brussel sprouts (charred to perfection, crunchy, tender). My wife and I had the Decoy Cab---perfect match with steak and lamb. We shared creme brulee and bread pudding for dessert both of which were delicious. My son said it was the best meal he has ever had in Dallas (he's 25)--- and I find it difficult to argue with that assessment. We had a 730p reservation on a Friday, and the place was busy, but despite arriving at 715p we were seated immediately and the maitre d' was friendly and courteous. I highly recommend the Mercury for a special occasion or a delicious dinner date!

    Superb as usual. There are so many choices that it is a great selection for a group with mixed preferences. Tried the crab dip appetizer which was so good. The compressed watermelon salad is so unique and always a winner. Nice mix of salty and sweet and very refreshing. I had the halibut for an entree and it was perfectly prepared. Very delicious.
