    I’ve been going to Mercatos for years! Everything was amazing but the service. Honestly where did all the veteran servers go? Waited 20 minutes to get a pre dinner cocktail that was sub par and then just not the service I’ve experienced before. Another example- a different server brought one of our dishes out dropped it and left. No plates or smiles or enjoy etc. they seemed mad that they had to help a team member. I will return but my expectations on service won’t be as high like in the past!p

    Excellent service, beautiful restaurant and the food… was incredible. Our waitress (didn’t catch a name unfortunately) was very helpful in guiding us through the menu and paired wines very well with our courses. The lamb is amazing and the cheesecake to finish off the meal was a real treat. This is the best restaurant I’ve been to in Calgary. Will be back soon!

    Linguine Pasta dish was good but sausage risotto dish was only ok and not what you’d expect. The salad dish was missing a major ingredient and no one seemed too bothered to correct it. Overall disappointing from previous experiences and expensive.

    We first went to Mercato about a year ago and this was our fifth or so time back, and given that we live 8 hours away that should be recommendation enough. The food is always very good, we love to sit and watch the kitchen at work, and their by-the-glass individual wine pairings (of almost everything on their wine list, no tiny selection of single serving wines by any means) made with the help of VERY knowledgable servers has led to some great pairings and discoveries.

    It was a casual “Business Brunch” for three and it was great! Had not been to Mercato on 4th for several years and was pleasantly surprised with the variety and quality of the menu items and the excellent service! Appetizers were Pulpo, Carpaccio and Buratta! All equally delicious and interesting blends of amazing flavours! We then had the tagliatelle, perfectly spiced, perfect doneness of the pasta, generous ribbons of fragrant cheese ! Simple and delicious! Add a little heat with Momma Cathy’s pepper relish. Exquisite! Finished with a traditional tiramisu and espresso. Very impressive. Great wine selection, superior service with a smile. Well done!

    Great restaurant and one of the best in Calgary! However, really prefer the traditional Caprese Salad with Pistachios vs. 'new tomato tapenade Caprese...The original one is much more interesting and flavorful with a variety of tastes! PLEASE bring the "Original" Caprese back (at least as an option...)! Thanks! Jim

    Mercato Mission is one of my favourite restaurants in North America. The menu selection is amazing, from crisp salads, fresh pastas and my all time go to, Bistecca. Great ambiance and sitting at the bar being looked after by Meghan is highly recommended! Well done as always… till we meet again! Bob
