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.

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!

The food was amazing! This is the second time I have been to Mercato and I was just as impressed as I was the first time. The restaurant is beautiful and the service is excellent. The staff was friendly, helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend Mercato to anyone.

We had our babies with us and Mercato was above and beyond accommodating. Which is lovely. It's sometimes hard to make it out for fine dining with littles. Our server was attentive and professional. The only disappointment was the streak. It was SO FATTY. But the revamped Polpo, Salad and Gnocchi were excellent

It is a fabulous restaurant, tastes, portion and quality all top. Only thing we noticed each time is that it is so loud it takes away from the ability to have a good conversation and atmosphere.

Service was slow and somewhat dimissive, didn't feel welcomed or especially valued; food was plain and overdone; any real taste was masked by the overuse of salt; for the price, Id go elsewhere.

Had a great time, as always. Great atmosphere, food, and service. However, one thing that should have been made clear is whether your confirmed reservation included a seat at the table or as we found, only room at the bar. More difficult to talk to other's in your party, and not as comfortable as a table. Had a great time anyways, but certainly would expect to be made aware of this in advance.

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.
