Not a bad place, valet parking, did not need reservations but on most nights it is probably recommended. Had dinner with a colleague that I had not seen in awhile. Portions are not bad, prices are a bit high for the meals, but overall the experience was not bad. The service, on the other hand, was very good, almost too... More

First visit to the Meddlesome Moth was a good one. The menu is very varied and each of the dishes delivered. We had the Duck Wings and Brats for an appetizer - both were very good. Also had the Ribs and Fried Tofu (excellent and very different). The beer selection was very good as was the service. Would like to... More

We went here before a Mavs game. The food was creative and delicious. It was difficult to pick our favorites but the shrimp and grits and Crisped Tofu really stood out. They have a huge selection of beers on tap as well. We ordered several share plates and my 11 year old nephew has the burger. He enjoyed it and... More

GF and her kids went with me to The Moth. Ambiance was great and everything was made from scratch and excellent. The waitress was kind, patient and wonderful (looked like Anne Hathaway). My dish was the least liked as the fish and chips was good but breeding on fish was bland and fries soft and greasy. However the steak and... More

My wife and I go out to eat so much, it takes a lot to earn a "Wow,' but Moth earned one last night. One of the more creative sets of dishes we have had in several years that included everything we tried-soup, salad, Thai mussels, sweetbreads, wine and several great/unusual draft beers. Coupled with great service, we will go... More

We visited this restaurant with our teen kids (13&15) it was a great experience. The restaurant has a great environment. The plates are small and meant to be share, so for 4 people we order 5 dishes and 2 desserts. The food is very interesting and unique with very delightful combinations on not common at all. They have tons of... More

We had reservations for Christmas night. Arrived a little ahead, but we were seated right away. Their menu is a little hard to understand so ask your server if you have questions. Example: Moth Balls? Ricotta cheese inside pasta covered in a white butter cream sauce. Why couldn't the menu just say this? We ordered share plates not knowing that... More

I had no idea about this restaurant until it was recommended by a friend. It has an amazing beer menu. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend their shared plates. Get several for your table and enjoy. The patio is large and partial enclosed for winter weather. It was a great evening.
