    Service was exceptional for brunch hour! Our food was ... mediocre ... bland, lukewarm, not what I was anticipating. Hopeful our next visit - the experience will be better.

    SLow service, couldn't get a drink at the bar for 25 minutes. the Bar was busy and full and only two bartenders on duty. But should've at least been waited on. Sat down for dinner place was short on menu's, short on staff and slow on service. I usually have a great time at the Moth, I'll go again. But this time was pretty dissappointing.

    I like that the manger accommodated us after they had just sold the last of the pot crème dessert. He offered my parents and I carrot cake on the house as a nice gesture. I come here once a month for either brunch or dinner. I will back soon. Thank you for the experience.

    We loved our server. She was attentive and informative. The noise level was a little energetic on the inside so we chose the exterior dining and the experience was fantastic. Will certainly be returning. The basil-lime cooler was amazing!!

    The ambience and service was wonderful. However, the food was nothing short of phenomenal! For a starter we tried the Bone Marrow, the had the Roasted Chicken and the Texas Game plate. Each dish was so flavorful and delicious! But it was that Olive Oil Cake that tied everything together to a perfect meal and evening. We will definitely come back and try more of their delectable dishes.

    First time here and went for brunch. Wow!! The atmosphere was electric. The food…outstanding! Had the French toast sandwich and I’d come back once a week just for that! Yum. I paired it with a Flew The Coop cocktail. Delish! Definitely coming back for dinner.

    Had the cod and chips. Very good and fresh tasting. Had read another review about how big this entree was but that was not the case. 3 smallish cod filet strips and homemade chips. Still very good.

    Birthday dinner with five friends - it was amazing! We were promptly seated in the perfect circular booth in the back corner, making it more intimate even though the restaurant is loud. Choices are amazing, and we all ended up splitting 7 different appetizers. Service was impeccable and they brought plates 2 at a time and kept them coming at an excellent pace. Could not say better things. Food is incredible! Can’t wait to come back.

    If you want a fantastic cocktail- this is your place. If you want dinner, go somewhere else. The cocktails were delicious. The food was awful! Cold and undercooked. We ordered steak skewers- room temp at best. Moth Balls- cold. Ahi Tuna-previously frozen and not completely thawed. Broccolini was under cooked, unable to cut it with a knife. I had to take my hand and press the knife into the stems to cut it. It was cold as well. I’m confused as to how things were cold when it was brought out so quickly? The server seemed to be in a rush, always looking around her section when she was interacting with us. The ambiance was pleasant. The cocktails, again, were great. Would recommend for after work drink but nothing else.

    Nothing to write home about. The atmosphere was okay indoor. The patio although air conditioned is noisy with road noise. The Rissoto tots has the chance to be tasty and we’re largely bland and uninteresting. We ate a few and left the rest. The ribs were fall off the bone but stringy. And the Fish and chips while served hot wasn’t crispy and served on a mountain of soggy fries. Drinks were reasonable. Overall Meh.

    For my birthday, I ordered the ribeye steak ($52) in medium rare and the server said 12-14 oz, mine arrived more like 10 oz and medium. Was very disappointed for what I received. Server did not offer type of apology or anything to make up for the meal. Will not return.

    Highly disappointed in the quality of the food. The only thing we would recommend are the grilled oysters. - risotto tots were bland and had absolutely no flavor - pork belly was overcooked and dry - steak skewers were tasty but not fabulous

    This was our second visit. We discovered the restaurant by accident on a Dallas visit last year, and made a point to come again this year. Every plate we have tried is amazing. The pork belly on marshmallow fluff… may be one of the thing we ever ate. Service was outstanding, it’s a fun place, and the food is creative and delicious.

    It was very busy so it was good we had a reservation. Our waiter was less than attentive but that’s to be expected on a busy Sunday during brunch. The food was great and came out in a timely manner overall a good experience.
