We loved the feel of the restaurant. We ordered a handful of items off then”shareable” side of the menu and all were good but nothing outstanding. Everything seemed to just barley miss the mark between amazing and just ok. The upstairs patio area is very cool with good views of Dallas. We would come back for drinks up on the patio!

Had lunch here. Great and interesting menu. Love the look of the venue. Had the fish and chips because it was the Friday lunch special. Wouldn’t pay $22 if it wasn’t on special.

The location and decor were both very nice. Our server was also very pleasant, but it was clear she was not familiar with the menu. The steak was good but it was about $10 higher than comparable steaks at other nice locations such as Toulouse and Hudson House. Additionally, the bar tender upstairs was not very attentive. This could have been the result of this being a relatively new restaurant, but given that there are so many restaurants in Dallas, I’m not sure we’ll return.

We left feeling like we had a very mediocre experience. Our server did not seem knowledgeable about the menu and everything we ordered was simply “ok”. We will probably not be coming back.

Picked an item off menu that is no longer offered, but still on menu. Picked a different dinner and it was blah, as in tasteless.
Best part of this evening was our waitress, Mai.
Asked my opinion of restaurant and told her we would not be back.
The menu is very confusing.
Always willing to try new restaurant and did , won’t return.

We went for Mother’s Day. We ordered off the menu and got a variety of items. I ordered the Tater Tot waffle. It was divine. I, also, asked for a green salad to round the meal out. It was of the menu, and the seever’s Mom (in the kitchen) whipped it up. It was wonderful. Everyone else at the table enjoyed their food, and our server was amazing. We will be back!

We were seated in a smaller room and didn’t feel like it was as intimate as we would have liked, being so close to other couples, but the atmosphere and food made up for it. We will probably try going upstairs next time and hopefully have a different experience.

Merchant House is a great spot for dinner or a quick drink and appetizer before an event. The drinks are fantastic and the food is incredible!!! I haven't tried any main dishes/plates from the Selfish side of the menu yet, because the shared plates are SO GOOD! This time we tried the Nashville Hot Chicken Sliders (5/5), Baked Goat Cheese (5/5), Macaroni and Cheese (4.5/5), Grilled Cheese Dumplings (3/5) and the Blueberry Empanadas (5/5). I will continue to visit! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooftop is great to hang out as well. Excellent price point and great quality.

This restaurant had outstanding food , drink and service.
Our party of 5 had a few craft cocktails that were unique and awesome. There are a lot of options to choose from from the shelfless options, our table had the Mezze platter, duck wings, Deviled eggs and hot chicken sliders. They were all really tasty. Fish and chips and the mushroom salad were very good as well.
Finished off with the Churros and blueberry pie. Just Delicious . Our server My (so) was very knowledgeable and attentive. We will be back soon.

Wow! A must! Great vibe, great service, great food, great value. Started off our evening, party of 6, upstairs outside on rooftop patio. Great craft drink menu and cool sitting areas. Back downstairs for dinner with our server names 'My'. She was absolutely incredible. Knew the menu front to back; the ingredients, the time to prepare, the order in which to bring, etc. We ordered the entire night down the left side or the 'share' side. Tried almost everything and it was all incredibly good. The lamb was to die for. Not far from downtown and Uptown; in fact, easy walk from uptown. Make it happen here. You will not be sorry.

Had brunch and arrived just a few minutes after opening, so there was only a few tables. Music was a little loud where we were sitting, but they were playing Run DMC and Beastie Boys so who am I to complain? The food and service was great, my wife and I spilt the French Toast bites, billionaire bacon, and burrito. All of it was amazing! Will be back with friends for brunch and dinner as well.

The biscuits with the Springfield Ham were cold and hard. The chutney the came with it was virtually hard boiled sugar. It burnt my finger it was so hot and then later cooled into hardened sugar. My hot chicken sliders were good. The Mac and cheese sliders were not special. I was unimpressed with the menu. The drinks were fine . I hope you get it figured out because the space is great.

This is the perfect place to go with a group! Cute, cozy feel and very relaxed. Tons of small plates for sharing and can add extra to an order to accommodate all people in your party. The duck wings were out of this world and the pim pim boa buns were to die for...but everything was amazing. Complimentary valet parking, just tip! Service was fast and attentive. The best part is that every table has a lazy susan to make sharing easy as can be! Will definitely return to try the rest of the items on the share side.

Merchant House is such a delight and location is perfect for lunch meetings. We originally had a reservation for three and a fourth person attended unexpectedly. The restaurant was incredibly accommodating and seated us at a booth large enough for four. The service was quick, the food was excellent, and the ambiance was perfect. Love the decor and definitely love menu. One of my associates stated his sandwich was the best turkey BLT he's ever eaten. Thanks for help knock this lunch out of the park!

The ambiance and drinks would be the only reason I recommend this place. Food was sub-par. The stuffed quail was cold in the center and the ceviche was room temperature with little flavor. The house is a cute dining area and the lounge upstairs is super cute!

Her Clarissa, thank you for dining with us. We apologize for your quail being cold in the center and your ceviche being too warm, and the chef has been made aware of this. We work very hard for consistency, and do hope you decide to join us again. We do have a happy hour from 4 to 7 pm upstairs!

This is a fairly new spot and has not gotten on the Dallas dining radar. We easily got in at 7:00 on a Saturday night. That won't last as word gets around about the great food and service being dished out here. My acid test is will we go back - the answer is yes and soon.

Merchant house was an awesome dining experience. Very mid century modern inside which we liked and not too crowded because of how they have it laid out so ambiance was very low key. Highly recommend.
