The Merchant Kitchen
Amazing as always!!!!
celebrated my birthday at merchant kitchen on the weekend, and the experience was amazing! Pam H. took such great care of us, recommended food items that did not disappoint, and really went above and beyond to make me feel special on my birthday! We will absolutely be back. ☺️
Great as always
Always enjoy the food here, very consistent!! This particular night though I did feel the service was a little rushed, and it didn’t look busy enough to warrant it. When you order a bottle of wine with dinner, you’re not there for a quick stop. Otherwise server was great!
The only negative was no flutes for Sparkling wine.
Food and service were great. Maybe a bit loud. It wasn't the most convenient place to get to for us but it was worth it. Great family concept for food items. Portions were a perfect size. Great gluten free options. Thanks
Great spot for a business dinner with a less stodgy feel. If you want to get away from the 529's of the world, try it out.
loved their family style menu, lots of great options for vegetarian and great wine recommendations by our server! Will be back
Overall great food, but too loud and not the best service
Tables are very close together and it is loud in the restaurant. Food was really good, drinks too.
Dinner was fantastic! The Dan dan noodles and corn off the cob were my favourite.
Cocktails were great and Pam (our server) was incredible at helping recommend dishes. She also helped with some suggestions of dishes and modifications as we had a vegan wanting to enjoy dinner as well.
We had a wonderful time. However I would indicate it is pricey .
Solid food, don’t think it was all worth how much we paid but I would definitely return! Server was nice not super attentive, found it to be very noisy overall
Really liked the chicken and the tacos and the corn!
Waiter was fun and engaging. Food was excellent. The noise level is quite high and the tables too wide. If the tables were a little narrower, you could converse more easily.
Great evening in a fun place with great food and service
The food was truly tasty! I think the portion size is rather small for communal eating. Love the gender equality washrooms and ambiance was super! Love the tile, artwork, and open kitchen!
Perfect as always!
One of the best restaurants we've been to. Food was amazing. So full of flavor. Everything was very unique, not your typical fare. Very refreshing.
Food is absolutely delicious, service was great! Can’t wait to go back!
It was okay. A little pricey but I do like the ambience a lot. I would recommend the Korean fried chicken and the fries.
Love, love, love the corn!!!! Hope to be back soon!
Great food, great service!
The Pork Carnitas were outstanding. Our server was just as great. Nice selection on tap. Will definitely be returning.
We had a delightful evening. Our food and service was great, staff was friendly. We had a lovely time there.
The chef was able to accommodate a celiac/dairy free diet without sacrificing flavour. S/he provided dishes for the entire party to share - cheese on the side. The food was well balanced with great umami. The portions were ideal for sharing. The service was attentive and personal without being overbearing. The food was delivered very quickly. It would have been nice to have a bit more time between dishes to fully enjoy the experience. Maybe we just needed to keep eating?!
Overall a great spot for some after concert eats. Service friendly and prompt. Food fast ( almost too fast) hot and great presentation. Noodles a little el denote for me but I adjusted. A fairly noisy joint but after a concert that could have been the crowd. Great little spot.
Awesome food and drinks before the concert. Thanks to Josh and his top notch staff.
Always fantastic, food is so simple and fresh, love the open concept. Also love the selection of the tequila and the way the cocktails are presented.
Wonderful and friendly service! (I hope her foot heals soon). The food was very tasty and original. The outdoor music counteracted the noise of the traffic which was refreshing. My jalapeño infused margarita was outstanding. Thank you for making our date night fun and enjoyable.
Great food, the chicken never disappoints. Also had wings and noodles, fresh guac and salsa, and the elotes corn. So good! Great birthday dinner for mom.
Too noisy. Our table mate across the table could not participate in the conversation.
Another excellent dinner. Delicious. Great service.
Excellent food, very tasty. Corn appetizer portion was a bit small for 4 people.
Great food . Can be a little too spicy
From start to finish an awesome experience! Delicious food and exceptional service!! We shared the street corn, roasted beets, Dan Dan Noodles and carnitas tacos!! My husband loved the hot sauces!!
Great food and fun, relaxing atmosphere, table was ready for us as soon as we walked in, always book ahead
Excellent drinks, delicious menu… this visit we were seated right in the middle of the restaurant and it was very very loud!
We went for a weekday business lunch and it was not busy. Service was excellent. It's hard to hear though because of open concept in the main dining area.
