    This was one of the best evenings out we have had in a very long time. Everything we ate and drank was amazing, the server was excellent and spent time explaining the menu and the history of the establishment and the family. The restaurant was full for the 8 p.m. seating and quite noisy which made visiting a bit difficult until some of the tables cleared and the restaurant quieted down. Overall, we would most definitely recommend Mercato.

    It has been a few years since we’ve been but everything we enjoyed before is still amazing. Sit at the bar and watch them cook. It’s fascinating to see how your meal comes together.

    For two of us it was $350 with tip. Outrageous!!! A side of mushrooms was over $20. The steak was kinda fatty. Not worth $79. The prices are ridiculous. The wine and beer was actually the most reasonable. Extreme pricing. Quite disappointed.

    Staff very good - accommodating.Ordered bruschetta and got three pieces of toast: one with tomatoes good, two with a spread - would have preferred the diced tomato on all three. $22.00 seems pricey for what o got

    It wasn’t a great place for date or special occasion. The whole restaurant was very noisy and no air conditioning. Plates were dirty, all wine glasses were not cleaned properly, they all had white cloth residue. I didn’t finish my wine because the white residue were sitting on top of my drink. Food portion was decent, and steak was delicious, but will not return.

    Absolutely lovely meal with great service and very nice cocktails and wine. We generally go to Mercato West but when I saw the menu for this location we had to Go. It is so much better and what we love….plus the vibe is much cooler. We cannot even get the pasta with ragu at the west location anymore never mind the parradelle. Sad

    Food was delicious but pricey for a lunch. Service was excellent. I found it a bit noisy. Went with a girlfriend and enjoyed a long lunch with wine. Bill was $160 so a lot more then I’d normally pay for lunch

    Thanks for asking! We are still “rattled”, disappointed and dismayed by our dining experience last night. We had a 7:00 reservation for 2. We arrived 45+ minutes early and were told that “because we were so early they couldn’t give us a table but would out us at the bar ( food prep area ). Then, IF a table came open we would be seated there. I should mention that I came in with a Walker as I have a broken hip. I also have grey hair which I would not normally mention but I’m afraid that his is applicable. So I try to get up on the high ( and very hard! ) bar stool. The hostesses watched this all. The kind server offered to assist as she could see I was in pain and asked if we wanted to be seated at the bar ( drinks area ) instead. We said no as the hostess was going to try to seat us at a table. In the meantime there was a nice, window table for two open THE ENTIRE TIME we were at the restaurant!!! Did the hostess or manger offer to give us this table?? NO!! Not even when our 7:00 reso time passed. Luckily our server ( dark long hair ) was wonderful. We have had her before and she’s a pro. The server managed to make it still a nice pasta break but I have to wonder if Mercato did not really want to “feature” an older woman ( who has a walker ) and her husband in their front window?? Hmm??? Makes me wonder and leaves my opinion of beautiful Mercato very shaken. Shame on the front-of-house staff. Let’s do better. This actually could be escalated to a discrimination issue but I won’t bother. It simply boils down to a lack of awareness and kindness.

    Appetizers and pasta were very good. We didn’t think our chicken was cooked thoroughly and was tough. The bream was ok. Tiramisu was excellent but carrot cake was dry. Great service and wine. Thanks We will return but will skip the mains.

    Found the background music too much for conversation. Seated at the bar underneath a speaker. Food was delicious, but perhaps a bit too salty. Our server, Fabio, was very professional and so charming.

    Food was great but a long wait in between courses which kind of became a drag. By the time our main got there we weren’t really hungry for it.
