Fantastic tapas every time! Food is never a disappointment. Bar service can be quite slow compared to how quickly the kitchen will get your food out to you. May find yourself eating before you get your cocktails. Other than that, beautiful place to enjoy a great night with friends and loved ones.

After several trips to Spain I thought the food was authentic. It definitely reminded me of Spanish tapas. The restaurant was surprisingly slow on a Sunday night, but the experience was still great. Additionally, on Sunday they have 50% off bottles of wine which was much appreciated!

The overall experience was good but my chicken and churros was not cooked all the way through which I didn’t discover until I got to the center. When I told the waitress just to let her know because it was cooked chicken she just said “ok”, don’t offer to comp. the portions were small, my parents ordered biscuits after eating their meals to fill up.

Great happy hour drinks but the accompanying 'tidbit' was a pasta salad which didn't really 'fit'. Food was good but did not particularly remind me of the wonderful days I've spent in Spain sampling the tapas daily. The lobster paella was our best dish by far. Service was excellent and would recommend sitting outside if the weather permits.

The staff at Bar Mercado went above and beyond to ensure a great dining experience for our table of 6. 4 of our friends had never been there. Our server took note that I wasn’t enjoying a cocktail I chose (I didn’t complain, wasn’t acting disappointed, just wasn’t really drinking it as it was sweeter than I’d anticipated)..he approached me and offered to bring me something else...what he brought me was amazing and I was so impressed at that level of attention. The manager Stephanie is always so friendly and speaks kindly to me. Makes me truly feel like they appreciate our business which I appreciate immensely.

We decide to take a late lunch/ early dinner on Sunday and ended up here. We had never been here before but have loved all of the other Castellucci locations; this one did not disappoint at all either. Service was fantastic; food was fabulous and conversation with the bartender and Stephanie (owner) were even better. We will be back for sure!

I had some friends in from out of town for what would become our inaugural Bar Mercado experience. Despite having been to the Krog Market many times, I had never been to the restaurants just outside of the main market area.

Bar Mercado serves Spanish cuisine using a variety of regional styles. Being a tapas place, we sampled a variety of dishes during our time - standouts include the artichoke, empanadas, and the patatas bravas. The cocktail menu had a good selection of craft cocktails on offer. The biggest hit among our group was probably the "Rebel Rebel", although there was an interesting beer with a refreshing cucumber note available as well. Service was very attentive, and our waiter was good at offering recommendations of food/cocktails suited to the tastes of our group.

All in all, an excellent experience. Looking forward to our next visit.
