We went with 8 of us to celebrate my wife's Birthday and had an exceptional time. Our server Brendon was awesome and the food was great. Half of our group had not been there and it was a hit. We will be back in the near future.

I did not enjoy the food.
I had wanted something Keto Friendly but there were no really good options.
I wanted a burger on lettuce instead of a bun and it was in the lunch menu and I was not accommodated
The coffee was terrible

Great tasting food. Does not come out in order or together so be prepared (they do warn you about that). Expensive drinks are just OK

As always, we were very pleased to introduce another couple to the wonderful experience that is dining at Mdfchant Kitchen. We were greeted and welcomed and sat at our requested table. We ordered as a group and our food came quickly. The Nagoya wings were a hit. We were happy to have ordered two bowls of these delicious wings. The dips and chips were tasty. The tuna was delicious. The dessert rice pudding was amazing. We all wanted more! Thanks for an exceptional meal. As we are on the over 50 cross, we did find the noise level a little high. But that won't keep us from bringing another friend or two for their first Merchant experience!

Excellent food and drink service was also good. Unfortunately it was very crowded and that made it very noisy. On a quieter day I would probably give 5 stars.

Great food and service. The server recommended the superfood salad as a side, which was a good call. I split it with the kfc banh mi and it was delicious. Note the washrooms are coed so if that phases you it’s a good thing to be aware of.

We had a great meal here. We it is a sharing menu for the most part so we ordered throughout our meal sharing each plate. It was easy to talk to each other at first but was the restaurant fills it get quite loud. I like what they have done to the interior and would come back.

Reservation for 4 to have dinner before attending a concert. Our server was attentive and provided an overview of the menu and suggested quantities for sharing so everyone would be satisfied. Our drinks and food arrived quickly and all was VERY tasty! I will come back and recommend to others.

First time at this restaurant, recommended to me by a friend. Beautiful place, food was very good, our waitress was prompt, efficient and kind. Overall was a great dinner, except for 1.5 hours into several rounds of food and drinks between 4 people, we were asked by your HOSTESS to settle our bills as there was another reso for our table. We booked our table via OpenTable for 7pm, we were never advised that we would have a 1.5hour window to eat, drink and visit with our friends. The hostess was rude, attitudy and incredibly unprofessional. As someone who spent their 20’s as a server, I was appalled at how she handled the situation. She stormed off when I asked if we could finish our ‘just ordered’ drinks. Our kind waitress returned and couldn’t apologize enough on your hostess’ behalf. This waitress is the reason we would return to your restaurant after this fiasco. She asked us to please stay for as long as we’d like. We finished our drinks, paid the bill and tipped your waitress generously for her professionalism and excellent service.
Your hostess has got to go!
