Italian Restaurant/Market all in one..

Visited Mercato with family for a birthday lunch. The restaurant was very busy for a sunday afternoon! Overall, the food was delicious, although I thought it was a bit pricy. Wonderful service. After dinner, we shopped the grocery section and found lots of nice things. Overall, an 8 out of 10 for me. Definately will return.

Not a lot of ventilation especially with an open kitchen. Server said kitchen just opened but we saw other tables eating. He didn't take our drink order and we had to ask for bread.

Wonderful, as usual. We've been many times and are never disappointed. It got extremely loud and hot as our meal went on but we know that's just part of the atmosphere.

The food at Mercato was absolutely phenomenal. Our server was very kind and let us know how the menu worked as it was our first time there. We were a little disappointed that we were reserved a table up at the bar, but we did understand it was busy. Overall, mercato was amazing and we will definitely be back!

Always excellent food and service. The restaurant is bustling and energetic so is a bit noisy - don't expect a quiet romantic dinner.

Wonderful experience, definitely a little pricey! As a business meal I could justify the cost, a little hard to swallow if I am paying out of my own pocket.

Our server was friendly, helpful and attentive. Food portions were very large, so caution in over ordering. We all ended up taking home leftovers. Wine selection was excellent.

Unique concept in fine dining - totally open kitchen with chairs right up to the cooking area. The inventive Mediterranean-inspired menu items are meant to be shared. Generous portions (!) Terrific wine list. Prompt efficient service. My companion found the high-chair seating to be somewhat uncomfortable and the heat from the kitchen a bit warm. Highly recommended as a must-do dining experience.

We love Mercato! The food is always excellent, and the service is wonderful. It was our daughter's birthday, and they even gave her a dessert with a birthday candle. This is our favourite restaurant in the city!

Service was unbelievable, it's not that often I give a 25% tip! Food was sublime and we loved how it was served. The meat platters, which we will try next time, looked amazing. The only small criticism I have is that their bar chairs are not the most comfortable. Highly reccomend this restaurant.

Food was incredible (I had dreams about the pasta special made with blue cheese). Our server was very attentive. Very talented chefs, especially the chef plating the food. I noticed that the groups to our right and left at the kitchen bar were waiting for their pasta for quite some time. There was a chef in training who was asked to remake their dishes. The servers brought over plates of chocolate cookies as a means of service recovery. Great job!

It's use to be our favourite restaurant. We were disappointed that you don't get the olives on the table anymore, our service ok...it wasn't busy so expected better service. Not sure if we'll be back anytime soon.

The food was fabulous but even better our waiter was amazing! He was very knowledgeable & told us everything we wanted to know about the menu & more! He told us exactly what we were getting when we ordered a dish (how it was being prepared, the ingredients being used, etc) He was very attentive & he gave us exceptional service!

A cornerstone of the Fourth Street Southwest restaurant row, the atmosphere is always sociable at Mercato. Snag a table or seats at the eatery’s central open-kitchen counter where you can chat with your neighbours and super-knowledgeable servers. Order the dreamy gnocchi hand rolled with shaved Parmigiano Reggiano and Romano cheeses. After your meal, roll yourself on over to the attached market and pick up some homemade take-home items such as fresh sauces and bread.

Whether you visit the original Mercato in Mission or its sister establishment Mercato West on 85th Street Southwest, expect expertly crafted rustic Italian food in a sociable setting. It’s a great spot for sipping wine and sharing food. The restaurants’ open kitchens are part of the fun as you watch succulent steak (try the bistecca alla fiorentina) and whole fish grilled to perfection and house-made pastas prepared with flair.
