Came here for our 20th anniversary and the reviews and menu led us to think this place was perfect. The service was so so and the restaurant being full shouldn’t have made our service be so delayed (not enough check ins with us, empty water for a while, etc). The food overall was good, but didn’t knock our socks off. Overall a good experience but not the best we’ve ever had.

We didn’t know they were only serving their brunch buffet. The food was lack luster. They didn’t require people to wear masks. Everything was self service. Management gave the excuse that the governor wasn’t requiring persons to wear mask anymore but the restaurant is a private entity and can do what they want so that excuse didn’t make sense. I think it was irresponsible to have an open buffet in this climate and the food wasn’t even good.

Our family dined at The Mercury for Mother’s Day. The staff was overwhelmingly kind to add an extra seat at the last minute without batting an eyelash! The food was outstanding! It was by far the best holiday buffet I’ve ever had, and my family agreed. The gentleman introduced as our head/lead server was totally MIA, but the lovely lady who was new and introduced as the second-in-command server was hustling and very attentive. We greatly appreciated her hard work!! We will definitely return for another special occasion.

Love this place....but I never eat enough to make a buffet worth my meal. However, my family does! lol The quality and variety of food for the Mother's Day buffet is awesome...its displayed beautifully, kept fresh; the hot things are hot and the cold things are cold. And the service is always wonderful! The waiter even brought us a bowl of hot water to warm up a baby bottle!

We live in Uptown so we usually stay in the area. I’m so glad we gave this place a try! It is far superior to the well-known steakhouses around us. We will definitely be back.

One of our go to places. Food was very good and service was above average. Wine prices seem a little high for what you get. Great ambiance and the staff was attentive. They always try and accommodate us.

Outstanding food! Highly recommend the yellowtail app... beyond delicious! Also the lobster tacos! Black cod was amazing too and the coconut cake... soooo good! The main section of the restaurant is really nice but a bit noisier than the back room where we sat. The location seemed a bit far from us in Uptown and was in a strip mall. But these locations do seem to be a Dallas thing and we have never been disappointed by the ambiance and food once inside.

For the first time in over a year, we chose to return to indoor dining and selected The Mercury. Service was excellent--well-paced. Food was spectacular. Wines by the glass were perfect pairings to our meals. The compressed watermelon salad is one of my favorites (although the watermelon wasn't particular sweet this time of year). And the black cod is delicious--rivals some of the best sea bass I've enjoyed at other fine dining restaurants (e.g., Michael Mina's in Las Vegas). The placed was packed. Hoping everyone remains safe to keep the restaurants doing what they want to be doing--serving us wonderful meals.

The wait staff was very attentive and our waiter explained the specials in wonderful detail. He also made the perfect recommendations when asked for help deciding between items. All staff wore their masks properly and consistently. Patrons varied. The capacity wasn’t curtailed and if you’re uncomfortable dining indoors in close proximity, this is not the place for you. We ordered an appetizer, a salad, and two specials-one seafood and one meat: everything was phenomenal.

We have been dining here since the rest opened and always have a great experience. Tonight was special as when my wife jokingly asked for a recipe of her favorite caviar egg and Chef Chris personally came to the table to tell us how to prepare the appetizer, not that im capable. As if that was not enough he then came back to the table with a huge volume of his favorite recipes to make copies of only asking politely that we return the book, no worries.
See you again very soon
