If you haven't tried it, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!

Must haves; Corn, Fried Rice, Super Food Salad and finish things off with the UNREAL Korean Fried Chicken!

It was a wonderful evening! The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, and the restaurant has a great vibe! The tacos and street corn are absolutely fantastic - lots of great flavour! We are already planning to return soon! Thank you for a great evening, Merchant Kitchen!

Great food and good service! Would be great if there was a digestifs menu though so staff won’t have to guess what you have available and how much.

Very busy night and it was super loud and hard to have a conversation until some of the guests left .
Have visited 3 times previous where it wasn’t as busy and noise level was tolerable

We had a Friday night dinner at Merchant Kitchen to celebrate my friend's retirement. We loved everything, the tempura squid, the seafood plate, and delicious dessert and the pisco capel cocktails. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Great ambiance and perfect for a friends get together! The food was well enjoyed and offered up some different options including tasty cocktails. Only complaint was that we had a reservation and still had to wait 15 minutes for our table which was disappointing.

We have been to the Merchant Kitchen 3 times now and each time it has been terrific. The Korean Fried Chicken and Thai Fried Rice were excellent. We've had other dishes which have all been really good - from salads to cocktails. Highly recommend for great food.

Staff was friendly and accommodated special dietary needs "off menu". A full sharing selection was recommended for the table. Everything that was recommended was amazing! This was our first time at The Merchant Kitchen but every member of our group will be coming back. You have to get one of every dessert and share. They are huge and big on flavour. Eat the dessert, walk home to burn the calories! Really worth it!

Great food - menu changed a little while ago and it's improved! The Dan Dan noodles were great as was the everything salad. The corn was awesome (they de-cobbed it at the table). No burger on the menu for dinner, but actually didn't miss it. Cocktails were really tasty as well. Nice evening meal out! Will go back!

Went prior to jets game - extremely busy but very professional service - came a little early and was able to stand at the bar while waiting - got out seats prior to our reservation. Great live performer. Considering how busy it was, the service was excellent

The service was pretty good, everyone was friendly enough.
Two of the dinners were brought at the same time as the appetizer even after stating we would start with the squid and share. That made for awkward timing and cool food for 2 people and 2 people eating later. Small portion sizes
Neat decor but no desire to go back.

Our server Pam was fabulous and helped make our evening fun. Loved this place. Easy to get to. Convenient parking too. Enjoyed every minute.

We have been here many times and love the restaurant. Unfortunately this time they decided to put an hour and a half limit on the dining experience which we were not told about when booking and beyond that not until we had already ordered our food. We were rushed and the service deteriorated after she notified us of the time limit. We were never approached by the manager or any supervisor of any sort. Definitely left a sour taste in my mouth.

Food and service excellent but ask for a table away from the door. We were there on a very busy, very cold evening and got a wee bit chilly, everytime the door opened.
