    Reserved a table at Mercatto as part of an anniversary celebration. Noted the occasion in my reservation and asked if anything could have been included as an additive for the celebration. However, upon arrival, the restaurant may not have received the request or decided to ignore it. The reservation wasn't treated as a special occasion which was disappointing as my partner and I had previously celebrated at the restaurant years ago.

    Food was very nice and each person in our party of 6 enjoyed their dish. Very loud but expected as it was a Leafs game night and packed. Our server was terrible, appeared to be "on drugs" and walked away mid-order taking. Slow on drinks service....'when we told him we were on way to the game, he replied "yeah so is everyone else" Serving was a chore, but to your credit the food came out quickly. My partner was steamrolled by a very drunk male enroute to the restroom, so maybe you should not be serving overly intoxicated persons.....would come again if need good food in a hurry.... maybe looking for servers that might be happy to have a job.... if they expect 18. 20 or 25%....... which was not given by the way....

    Mercatto never ever disappoints! Food is phenomenal- so delicious- and the service - cannot say enough how fantastic our server was. Truly. The only thing that wasn’t great was when we checked in fir our reservation… the girl immediately told us we had to be out by 8:00 pm because they were double booked. I don’t care if they were double booked - I didn’t want to be rushed. She then offered my party a spot at the bar ….. what?! No thank you. We didn’t rush. We were there until 8:30 and there was lots of seating available.

    For the $ spent, I always feel rushed. I come back for the food and location to Scotiabank arena. I truly hope this rule only applies to situations where home games are played.

    We had a show to attend and not much time to dine. The server asked the kitchen to put in a rush order and we were in and out in less than 40 minutes. The food was still deliciously prepared and we were able to eat without feeling rushed in any way.

    I booked a reservation 3 weeks in advance. Got there right on time and was immediately (and rudely) told we had 1 hour for dinner then had to leave. There was no indication at the time I booked that it was 1 hr max. Glad we looked at the menu in advance so we ordered two glasses of wine and 2 pizzas. As we were eating they asked if we were going to want dessert. Several times thru the meal someone came by and either took something away from the table or checked to see if we were done. At one point the waitress took my wine glass and it was still partially full. Had to flag her down and ask for it back as it wasn't done. So rushed and rude. Totally not a good experience. Paid over 100 for two of us and felt like we were eating at a fast food restaurant. Shame on you. Never be back.

    A group of 4 of us.. Two of us had the Pasta - Linguine Di Mare, was a VERY small portion, was VERY disappointed... for $27 you get a VERY small pasta bowl. It tasted good... but should be a much larger portion for $27.

    My wife and I went to this restaurant for the first time, prior to attending a Toronto Maple Leafs game, as the restaurant is a 5 minute walk for the Scotia Bank Arena. We were received professionally, shown to our reserved table and despite the place being packed with Hockey fans the service was excellent. Well done.

    Good restaurant, but keyed to quicker, lunchtime service I think. We were looking for a slower meal for a special occasion. I'd go back for lunch or after work business or casual social but not for a night out. Ate here for a pre-Second City show, and the location was perfect.

    We ate here after a comedy show and didn’t arrive to the restaurant until after 9pm so the restaurant was fairly quiet. Our server was very prompt and friendly. Our food came out quickly and was so delicious. We’re not in Toronto often but would definitely eat there again if we had the chance!
