Food was delicious. It the service was lacking. Had to ask for menus, they didn’t have the wine we ordered. It was a long time til we could order our appetizers, waited a very long time for appetizers and dinner. Waitress disappeared and we didn’t quite know who was left to take care of us. Ordered coffee with dessert only to be told it had already been thrown out. Reservation was 8:30, we were one of the last people to be able to leave. Place was being cleaned up when we left. It was like our food wasn’t even started until the place cleared out. That being said, the salads, veal, black cod, duck and dessert was wonderful. It was a shame that service was poor because we brought our birthday guest here for the first time. Our guest probably wont want to come back. Maybe it was just an off night.

Great place to go during the week with friends as it’s in a nice neighborhood with a friendly vibe. It’s upscale casual in a warm dimly lit dining room which makes it great for a date night as well. Our server was super friendly and the food was delicious

Another very good meal at our favorite neighborhood Fine Dining establishment! Our new server Brittany did a very nice job with a good balance between checking on our meal progress and not interrupting our conversations unnecessarily. I would have rated the food 5 stars except for the very small portion of Halibut I received as their off-the-menu special that evening. For $56 it should have been on a par with their normal Halibut on the menu but it was 50% smaller. But the taste was very good and everyone else had pleasant things to say about their entrees. My wife noted that the Brussels sprouts were a bit undercooked as well, but they are usually spot on. We will return soon and see if these minor things improve!

First of all our service was impeccable. John did a fantastic job with anticipating our needs. But not only that, the entire staff was on top of everything. It was really a seamless service experience. The food was fantastic, we had the Wagyu beef as an appetizer and it was top grade fantastic. The wine selection was perfect, not to large making selections difficult. John was knowledgeable regarding which wines pair well with the food. We had the black cod and sole And it was very thoughtfully prepared. All in all we had a great service experience with delicious food. I highly recommend this restaurant to anybody

Our “go-to” special occasion restaurant. It was my birthday & everything seemed a little off. It was a Monday evening & I didn’t think it’d be packed, but it was a Spartan crowd. Most of the cooking staff must’ve been off because for the first & only time, there was nothing great about any of our food except the appetizer sliders my husband ordered. They were excellent. And the spicy aioli & pomme frites that accompanied them were excellent too.
Nothing else was more than mediocre. My lobster taco was pedestrian, veal Milanese was floating in a small pond of grease. My husband ordered the Nimam Ranch pork chop & said Perry’s chop is by far better. The waiter brought a complimentary birthday dessert. In this case “bread pudding” with cinnamon ice cream. I like bread pudding. Every chef has a different take & I usually like most of them. This one was dry, heavy & virtually tasteless. Our waiter asked if we wanted to take it “to go “. We declined! I’ll give everyone an “off night”. There are so many variables when dining out & this is usually a “sure thing. “. Of course we will go back••• but probably NOT on a Monday night.

The Mercury should be your go to place for major business deals in a quiet and intimate setting. Food is excellent with a nice variety and chef does a great service with shrimp/grits and amazing wild mushroom risotto (personal favorites).
Valet parking is a nice feature when weather is bad or for your important clients/guests.
Highly recommend.

The waiter recommended all of the most expensive items without giving details or other suggestions. I ordered a margarita, he chose one of the most expensive tequilas (I did not get to choose). I ordered a ribeye medium well, it was well done like crispy. The waiter recommended Mac and cheese or lobster Mac and cheese but failed to tell us that the lobster was something we paired for separately and overall it wasn’t good tasted like box Mac and cheese. The fries we terrible and the brussel sprouts were average. It was my fiancés birthday so she was choosing a dessert she wanted to order but our waiter said he already had something coming for her. She didn’t like the dessert she was given and didn’t even get to choose and we were still charged for it. The meals total bill was not at all a reflection of the service and meal quality. We really only went for sushi but apparently they are short staffed so they don’t serve it on mondays (something the website didn’t say) I’ll never go back.

Dinner was delicious as usual, but dessert was a total letdown. They no longer have the donuts on the menu and they were by far the best dessert. Instead, we had a piece of dry coconut cake, bread pudding that was dry as well, and cheesecake eggrolls that were so-so. Bring back the donuts!

Great food. The caviar egg is the BEST! We were seated in the back of the main dining room. It was pretty cramped and I was shoved up against a divider. Not comfortable. Not a good table. But the food was yummy as always. Rib eye done to perfection.

OK so this is my sixth or seventh time here at The Mercury… This restaurant is absolutely amazing! Every time I have gone to this restaurant the service has been amazing and the food has been outstanding! There’s only one time I’ve been here where the service was disappointing however the amazing food kind of overshadowed that our server was not that great. Anyway the overall service at The Mercury is amazing. If you have not been to The Mercury located at the corner of Preston and Forest Lane in Dallas you definitely need to go there. This is a definite recommendation. The lemon drop martini… Priceless. The surf and turf sushi with the wagyu beef on top… Outstanding!!!! The pictures that I have posted with this review… The lemon drop martini… The salmon… The shrimp cocktail… The pork chop… The strawberry shortcake birthday dessert because this was a birthday celebration. Oh and not to mention they do have a sushi bar on the other side of the restaurant. The atmosphere… Perfect!!

Food was outstanding, as always. Service was a bit spotty, which is unusual. Service started out fine, but after we received our drinks the waiter became inattentive. He got my salad order incorrect, because he didn't listen to what I had ordered. He did not come by to check on our salads, I had to flag down another waiter to get it corrected. My wife was half done with her salad before I received mine. After we had finished our salads, it was 20 minutes before we received our entrees. During this time our waiter never came by to check on us. (Our water glasses were empty by now) After dinner another waiter asked if we needed coffee and dessert menus. Our waiter then showed up with a dessert for our anniversary. When he brought us the bill, he had charged us for the dessert. He did remove it, but he should have gone over the bill before he gave it to us. He only had 3 other tables so he wasn't swamped. He just didn't give us the detailed attention we have grown use to at the Mercury.

Went here for an early Christmas lunch date. We were seated immediately but didn’t get menus for at least 10 mins. We received water right away but the server didn’t take our drink order for another 15 mins after we finally got the menu. Appetizer was delicious but the main course and side were bland. We’ve been here in the past and had a great experience. Unfortunately this was not worth the price and we will go elsewhere for our next special date.
