    Just two girlfriends eating very little food and drinking very little but somehow the bill was $142 + tip. We both looked at each other and said ‘we should find a diff place to meet’. You guys are pricing us out. Good food of course but super pricey lately.

    They tried but there are certain issues in any buffet. You have people moving around going back and forth to the buffet and there is a certain amount noise and movement involved in that. For $85 I would have preferred a price fixe limited menu - shame on me for not noticing it was a buffet when I made the reservation. Plus, I always put the Mercury is a high ( if not elite) class of restaurants and seeing the big screen tvs lent an air of sports bar. No complaint about the people - host/hostess and servers. They were awesome.

    Thanksgiving was buffet only. This was a surprise as it wasn't noted anywhere when we reserved. Very, very crowded! Lots of people trying to move to/from the buffet without adequate room between tables. Kitchen had a hard time keeping the buffet stocked (several items had run out and we needed to wait for refills). Good selection, but mediocre quality food that was cold by the time we got to it to our table. Not worth half the price. The restaurant clearly anticipated the crowd and had a lot of extra staff on hand. All were well meaning but lacked direction. Many just added to the congestion in the dining room. The Mercury is a family favorite and normally excellent on a regular night. We will likely return, but never for a holiday meal.

    My husband and I came to the Mercury in Dallas, TX at the recommendation of a friend. We were super excited to try this place out but are definitely leaving very bummed out and less than enthusiastic. We were not handed menus until 5-10 minutes after being seated. I had to ask for a food menu. I can't emphasize enough that every course had something slightly wrong with it. We ordered dirty Tito's martinis and were given straight gin martinis. The salad with crab was extremely basic and did not have enough dressing. Our chicken fried steak was so over salted it was hard to swallow. I think the fries were less salty. This in my mind was a behind the scenes/kitchen issue, our server was alright. Over all we are leaving before the desert menus can be laid down. Do not recommend this restaurant.

    We’ve been here many times and this one was a little disappointing-a mixed experience. The vintage of the bottle of wine we ordered was not what they brought out and they acted offended when we pointed that out and sent it back We send back the warm goat cheese and beet salad since the goat cheese was clearly just pulled out of the fridge. When it came back it was a little warm, but the bigger issue was this time around the skimped on the beet slices and arugula. It wasn’t worth sending it back again. All the proportions on the plate were totally off. The black miso cod was a nice portion size and the internal temp was perfect The himachi appetizer was also very generous and very fresh

    We were seated immediately by very friendly staff. Our waiter, Tanner, was prompt, courteous, appeared in a timely manner, I.e., excellent service. The food was outstanding. I had the absolute best beef filet I have ever had. It was cooked exactly as I ordered,; the flavor was heavenly; and pit was so tender that it practically melted in my mouth.

    As always a wonderful dinner with excellent service by Michael and perfect ambience. Planned to stop by to make reservations for Thanksgiving but made last minute reservation for dinner. Had a sushi roll for appetizer, split a NY strip, fries, Brussels sprouts and in house made ice cream and cookies. Easy and delicious early Saturday night dinner. Such a lovely atmosphere and gracious and accommodating host at the front. Friendly and professional staff from baker to busboy. Highly recommend as always.

    As always the food was very good. Surprised at how busy it was for an 8 pm reservation! Very! (Usually eat much earlier.) Ambience, therefore, was a bit hectic. Waiters were a few at our one table. One young man kept us in “high cotton” by bringing us 3 servings of their scrumptious pâté! We had a few waiters waiting in us and so was a bit hectic. All wait staff are excellent and attentive. However, we did feel a bit rushed by our main waiter asking is for all of our choices from appetizers to dessert too soon/quickly. We like to take out time when we dine especially when the tab is always quite expensive here. Overall, a very nice evening. The valet Parker is such an awesome and friendly man. He always remembers is!

    The Mercury has been around forever, but it is definitely worth another visit. Our last dinner was there 25 yrs ago - and this trip did not disappoint. Good food, attentive service. Only negative would be the open dining rooms make it very noisy - especially if there are rowdy tables present
