Very nice! The food is delicious, service was great. We sat by the window and it was a bit chilly otherwise, a very wonderful dining experience.

Meh ... over priced, very small portions (the shrimp tacos are not a meal ... an appetizer for one only). Guacamole is crappy ... not made from fresh avocados (travesty) and the cocktails while interesting and yummy are $18 (stupid). So give it a miss.

The food was delicious and served out fast. We prefer the front room over the back. It was quite loud. But wait staff was great.

There is no better way to describe my experience at Merchant Kitchen than "outstanding." I was there to celebrate my birthday, and I'm so happy I chose to celebrate there. Our server was amazing; she went above and beyond to make sure we were having a good time – probably some of the best service I've experienced in a long time. Our water glasses were never empty, food came out quick, and we always had a drink in hand. I have a friend with dietary restrictions, and the staff created a dish specifically for her so that she could eat with the rest of us. 10/10 experience! We will definitely be back soon!

Most is usually good at Merchant Kitchen: food is good, service is good, prices a little steep (although not outrageously so) but the real drag is how poor the acoustics are in the restaurant.....it is soooo noisy/loud in there it's hard to hear. And

We sat at the bar and Julia was excellent. She acknowledged me immediately and I had a glass of wine within minutes. Food was great. Only small complaint is the noise level.

Our experience at Merchant Kitchen was outstanding. We are 2 senior couples who will definitely return. The food was delicious and unique. Our server couldn’t have been more helpful and answered all our questions and offered suggestions. She was right on. Our food was delicious. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our server was Wendy and she helped make the experience so great. Even the GM Josh visited our table and added to our knowledge of the menu. Love this place.

The price of the food is too expensive. Portions are also too small, menu is very limited more entrees is better

The food was good. I really enjoyed the flank steak. The portions were a bit small but the idea is to share. There were four of us and we ordered 5 dishes and we were still hungry. So probably recommend ordering dishes 1.5 to 2x's the number of people in the group to ensure there is enough. It was loud but we could still hear each other and have a conversation which is unlike a lot of newer places so all good.

The food and the service were amazing! It was very loud, between the music and other customers I had trouble talking with and hearing the others in my group. This issue would not deter me from going back though.

The food was spectacular. Our server was very attentive and made great recommendations on food and drinks.
Food was quick to be served but we never felt rushed to eat and go.

Will be going back!

Great place for dinner. Loved the food and service was good. Very open atmosphere and was very busy before the concert so noise level pretty high. Great location right at the Alt Hotel and across the street from the MTS. Will definitely return.

The food was delicious and the service excellent. It's a little loud and the benches (at least the one I was on) need re-stuffing. I would recommend a chair.

It was just before a Jets game, so it was loud and crowded. But the food was excellent, the service was great and sitting at the counter in front of the kitchen was entertaining.

Everything was great until we asked the bartender for cream and sugar instead of our waitress who we couldn’t find....she came bank and smiled at us, being very rude and condescending

The food tasted great! I found the restaurant very loud. The cost of alcohol was extremely expensive and the portions for the price were on the small side. tacos which was a shared dish, had 3 for 2 people. Had to add a forth one for $5. Great food - not sure if $133 for 2 people is a good value. Not a lot of Gluten Free options.
