The Mercury Ratings and Reviews
As usual, the food was excellent, as was the service and attention by David. We were not rushed and specific attention was given to our order. As per your "list", it may be a great place as a "Late-night Find" or "Afternoon Coffee" but I would venture to say that not too many people know of the restaurant's availability for those two instances. And, btw, the Beignets are great!
Never dissatisfied with The Mercury wether we are dining on a special occasion or just every day dining. Tonight our daughter and her fiancé joined us and it was a magical evening. We shared the fois grad appetizer and the steak tartare and both were delicious! For entrees three of us selected the filet mignonette and my wife selected the Halibut and everyone was pleased. We added Mac-n-cheese and Brussels Sprouts as shared sides and all all were very happy with their meals. We finished the evening with my daughter ordering butterscotch lava cake which was excellent, her fiancé ordered regular chocolate lava cake which was also very good, and my wife and I sharing Cream Brûlée which was wonderful. We we’re accommodated with our requested favorite table to cement a great evening. We highly recommend The Mercury for a special event or just every day dining.
This is the third time we've been to The Mercury. It's great. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. The wine menu is extensive and there are some reasonable prices by the glass for reds and whites. The service is attentive and friendly and efficient; it is not overdone as is the case in some of the better restaurants one goes to. The yellow tail appetizer was outstanding--Nobu quality for sure. The Black Cod was a wonderful fish but quite rich. Erick, our server, said it would be rich and he put the extra sauce they normally add on the side. I didn't use the extra sauce. My wife's duck was fabulous.
We done fairly often at the Mercury because it is always consistently good Food, the service is usually spot on, and the atmosphere is lively without being overly loud. On this occasion I had the 9 ounce filet and it was cooked perfectly. My wife had the halibut and loved it. We started by splitting a wedge salad which they are happy to do. We added a side of macaroni and cheese to round out the meal and will completely full and satisfied after all that.
Mercury has been around for decades. It is our "go to" restaurant for birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & entertaining friends. It is a Preston Hollow staple. Always consistent & with well-prepared cuisine--the menu changes enough to stay fresh, but keeps a lot of clientele favorites to keep regular patrons returning. It's not the flashiest restaurant on the Dallas scene, but oh how wonderful to go to a well designed, comfortable restaurant & know you're going to have an excellent meal w/ experienced bar & waitstaff, leave satisfied & feeling well-cared for by employees -many ( bar & dining room) have been there for years. And... you can have conversations without shouting or straining to hearwhat your tablemates are discussing. What else can one ask of a familiar favorite fine dining room?
I had a salmon and it was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and nice. Offer to change when things did not match ( i ask for a regular coffee and it came and americano, probably my fault). The lady at the entrance could be more friendly. It was a kind of stif. My friends others were good too.
My husband and I had another delicious meal! We split the pear and gorgonzola salad, which was very fresh and delicious! I had the halibut which was perfectly cooked, and came with great veggies. My husband the rib eye, which he really enjoyed, along with a side of mashed potatoes. We split the bread pudding with cherry sauce, yum! Our server was very efficient and friendly. She did not rush us at all. A great night!
Usually I like this restaurant but on this trip I was very disappointed. The food lacked flavor and felt dated. The server was not attentive, her had zero help from a buser. The experience made me uncomfortable. Additionally there was an incredibly rude family next to us that brought their 2 kids and as they were at the table the kids pulled out their iPads and the mother pulled out food out of her bag for the kids to eat instead of ordering from the menu. Bananas, cheetoes, etc ...Rude...Rude...Rude! Leave the kids alone!
We've been coming here since they opened but now the restaurant needs a major face lift. Many new restaurants have opened that are new and state of the art. This night the restaurant was quiet yet the service was inattentive. Will be back but hoping for a new menus and new decor
Chris Ward is one of the power chefs in Dallas. His menu at The Mercury is ever changing, yet has some staples that will be there every time you dine. I have to have the cracklin' chicken ever other time I visit---it's an unbelievably good dish. We started our meal yesterday with a spicy ahi tuna appetizer that was tremendous! Great job Chef and your entire crew was spot on, as usual!
