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.

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.

Fantastic dining experience. They had no problem accommodating my allergies as everything was made to order in the open kitchen.

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.

Our group of 17 had a fantastic time. We had a pre set menu and requested it to be made with 1/2 the amount of salt. It was great. I highly recommended Mercato for your business or personal parties.

I wish I could remember our servers name! She was wonderful! Made selection recommendations and assisted us in choosing a delicious and enjoyable meal. We even had a friend join in at the end and she made more space without any fuss and made him feel welcome rather than an imposition. It made for a wonderful first impression and we will certainly be going back many many times.

Excellent meal as always. We asked for the Bistecca cooked to "the chef's temperature" which is quite rare. Although it was perfect for me, it was too rare for others in our group. Because the steak is served sliced, it is impossible to cook it any more without ruining it in my opinion. If you plan on sharing a steak, and they are are huge, check with your server to make sure it will be cooked to everyone's liking. The way our steak was served was exactly like you would get it in Tuscany. The pastas were delicious.

Incredible! Everything about our experience was incredible! We went to the hockey game after and couldn't stop talking about our meal and wanted to go back and eat more. As good as going to Italy to eat.

A favorite - come back on a semi regular basis and have had s cosistsnt experience. Best shared family style in courses - the Bisteca is a great red meat experience. Pasta is always nicely done.

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.
