Wonderful meal! Our server was attentive and even went the extra mile to accommodate someone in my party that saw a dessert on the menu that was no longer available. He surprised us with her request. I’ll definitely be back!

Good was excellent. Ambiance was every bit as good. We both felt rushed. We’re asked to order dinner at the same time as our appetizers. From there it was fast and furious. Not at all what we would expect

Our server was extremely slow! We waited 20 minutes for the first round of drinks. In addition he needs a course in cocktails didn’t know what rye whiskey was when somebody at the table asked which rye whiskeys they carried.

When we finally got to order, and received our food, it was amazing!

Food was exceptional and the restaurant is always lovely. It was a busy evening (especially since it was a Wednesday) and service was a bit slow, but our waiter was friendly and apologized for the delays. I’m assuming the restaurant is a bit understaffed right now, but the quality of the food is still amazing.

We split 4 courses. All the food was delicious. Some portion sizes when split are just too small even though the price paid is pretty high. Wedge salad with Roquefort dressing was delicious and a decent portion for splitting. Not so with the Halibut. Looked like the split portion was only about 3 oz. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Side of asparagus was 8 or 9 smallish spears. Definitely not worth the price. Bread pudding was very decent size for splitting even with 3 - 4 persons and priced fairly. Cappucino/espresso are very over-priced.

Service was much too prompt. It felt very rushed, and not a dining experience. The room had several larger sized groups making surrounding our table, making it difficult at times to hear.

It was our 30th wedding anniversary. We were greeted with “Happy anniversary and seated promptly. Medi was our server. He was polite, prompt, and attentive throughout the evening; then he treated us to an anniversary dessert. As always, the food was delicious.

We had a group of men At the table behind me that was clearly drunk and cursing very loudly with totally objectionable language. Was very inappropriate for women and others. Wish I had asked to be moved. Management knew of the issue but didn’t seem to want to deal with it.

Had had a large business dinner with 10 people at the same restaurant the week before with a total bill between $2500 and $3000. Clearly I love the restaurant but another experience like last night will make me rethink my options.

As always the food and drinks were delicious! The waiter forgot one of our desserts. We had to wait a while to get his attention to let him know. I was disappointed because it was a 30th birthday party and I told them hoping they would put a candle in one of the desserts but that didn’t happen either. I will return due to how great the food is. It’s always a winner!!

She started with a Lemon Drop. I settled for a glass of Cabernet. Just fabulous! We split the Wedge. Always delicious! We decided to dine on Sushi. We shared a Hawaiian Roll and an Alaskan Roll. Shushi at The Mercury is at the highest level, among the best in Dallas. We shared the Shortcake for dessert. There's no other way to describe the Shortcake than it is simply out of this world! We love The Mercury!

I’d like to be able to pass the service off as current staffing challenges in all businesses, it we saw other sections of tables with consistent service from their waiters. In our case the waiter may have come by once every 20 minutes. It took almost 2 hours from being seated to paying the bill. This is our 3rd time visiting and clearly the worst experience so far.

The food was good, but the service and noise level were not worth the cost.
