Market Cuisine
Once the Metropolitan News Agency on Cypress, MERCURI 109 with Chef Joe Mercuri is a bar-à-manger seating 23 in Montreal’s financial district. Our mission is to provide an experience based on pleasure and satisfaction; a fine-dining intimate eatery where a sense of exclusivity is felt the minute you take your seat at the granite bar, or at one of our two hand-made wooden tables.

Behind the bar & in front of you to observe, a repertory of ingredients is prepared with French-technique, as creations give ode to Chef’s Italian roots and his appeal to local Asian flavors.

Passion and curiosity (traits synonymous to Mercuri’s magnetic personality), come to life through prance and charm in a kitchen reflecting the cultural mosaic our attractive Montréal is famous for.

Whether it’s the bread dunk in the spicy honeycomb & olive oil or the other refined ingredients, the MERCURI 109 food-bar promises to satisfy each client both mouth and experience-wise!

    It was a special night for my wife and I, I really wanted to like this restaurant, it’s small, beautiful, and i am sure the food is good. After sitting and being offered a glass of champagne before being presented the menu, we waited long enough to finish our glass and look at the personnel drink many shoots with other guests and doing many things except serving us. We decided to leave after 40 minutes on a Saturday night in Montreal without other dinner plans. We couldn’t taste the food sadly… it’s sad the cooks were not busy at all and it’s hard for a cook to be busy if no orders are coming in. I really wanted to like this place.

    This was an outstanding experience. Our table had the chef’s tasting menu, complete with recommended wine. Not only did all the dishes come out beautifully, they tasted even better. Try this place for a special evening with friends or loved ones, or with colleagues who love good food!

    We tried the tasting menu, fresh ingredients and good ambiance. The service was good, although not incredible for the price. There were 6 courses, 3 of them 5 stars, the other 3 ok. Overall would recommend the place.

    I had made reservations to sit at a table and we had sit at the bar. Not great when you’re expecting to sit and dine. The food was good and it was nice to see the chef cooking in front of us, but for the price we paid, you expect a better experience all together.
    Mercuri 109Responded on April 14, 2024
    We apologize if the bar seating made the experience so unpleasant for you. We always try to accommodate our guests' preferences and there was no note in the reservation specifying the type of seating. Also, because the restaurant is conceived as a 'food bar' it is quite hard to accommodate last minute seating requests especially during a full-house service. We are though looking forward to hosting you again, this time at a seating of your choice, and hopefully resulting in a better rating.

    Wonderful experience! We were truly lucky to have come on a slow night and sat at the chef’s bar area overlooking the kitchen. Joe, M and his chef Alex have made a phenomenal tasting menu that must be tried, but we had the privilege of also being served every dish by them. Incredible… If you are looking for that place that isn’t only good but makes you feel special, this is the one! Thanks Marwan for the drinks and the tour. We will see you all again soon.

    Finally. Spectacular food in downtown Montreal. Best salad and tuna that we can remember. So carefully thought out. Wonderful wine pairings. Laid back, cosy and everyone on staff ready and willing to please. Crazy dessert featuring sweet potatoes. Not expensive, as these things go.

    We arrived late on a Friday night to a warm welcome and were treated to one of the most original -- albeit simple -- meals we have had in a long time. The amuse bouche of braised lamb and ravioli was sublime, the salad full of crisp winter greens and the rigatoni just perfect: al dente and served with pancetta full of flavor. It's a fun and intimate setting. By the way, this meal was completely different from one we had a few weeks ago there. The chef is always inventing wonderful new things.
