    Extremely loud neighboring guests ruined the possibility of our table having normal conversation! Braying, shrieking, screaming should not be countenanced in fine restaurant. Shame! I would hesitate recommending Mercato to a friend.

    This is one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. Food and wine is amazing. Servers are very attentive and knowledgeable. If it is just two of you, try to sit at the bar in the corner. Best way to converse while watching the chefs make their creations.

    The Linguine and Risotto plates were good. The flavour and texture of both were great. The Rosticianna however, was drenched in oil and the meat was tough. We had to request steak knives to cut the meat. Even then, it was challenging to separate the meat from the bone. Also, when eating the vegetables, you would get mouthfuls of oil that would coat the inside of your mouth and it was very unsettling. Several of us felt sick afterwards. Also, it was similar to the oil served with the bread, which tasted off and not like high quality Italian olive oil. The service was fair, the hostess was kind but seemed a bit distracted. For example, we requested pepper when our meal was served but it took the server over 10 minutes to bring it to the table. By then, we had to eat a significant portion of our meals since they were getting cold. Although most of the experience was good, the rosticianna made us question whether we’d return again.

    Always love Mercato. Quality is amazing and consistent every time we dine there. Our son loves the tagliatelle as the noodles and sauce are amazing. We love the steak as it’s cooked to perfection and served family style on a very appealing platter with arugula and lemon. Very delicious. Our waitress provided great service. She’s not rude but not overly warm. Our orders were taken perfectly and service was quick. Everything done to perfection. Mercato is a Calgary institute.

    Service was wonderful and overall the experience was great. Just for the price point you expect more perfection and there were some misses. Our Mussel dish had many shards of broken shell in the Sauce and we got some grit under our teeth with a couple bites. while the flavor was delicious, that was quite a turn off. Also it is super entertaining to watch the amazing chefs do their thing, it would be even better if they had better ventilation so it doesn't get so smoky and smelly in there. Overall the food was great and a few tweaks here and there and more attention to detail would make the experience near perfect.

    We had an excellent experience at Mercato - Mission celebrating our anniversary. We ordered 3 courses and our server (I wish I could remember her name because she was fantastic) suggested 2 beautiful bottles of red to go alongside our dishes. Everything tasted incredible! Highly recommend!

    Food was 'OK', the pasta was rather salty and a bit spicy thuogh the menu did not elude to any ingredients which would make it so. And a bit shocking for a 3 course dinner for two (3 items shared) and 3 drinks (1 cocktail and 2 beers) tallied to a massive amount. Again food was enjoyable for the most part but the costs were fairly exorbitant.

    Went for lunch this time and as always Mercato is just so great! Had some favourites and also tried new ones (you must try the chicken!) our server was 10 stars, Mike? I feel terrible for not committing his name to memory but the lunch crew was just awesome. Thanks for making such delicious food with great ambiance and amazing staff to round out the experience.

    Excellent food, as usual. My only criticism is that it's extremely loud and the room is an echo chamber ... hard to have a conversation when it's busy. Plus, they play music and to make it heard above the din, it has to be turned up fairly loud. We stayed until close and it was much more pleasant as it emptied out. But food and drinks were top notch.
