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.

Great restaurant and dining experience. Seeing your food prepared fresh in front of your eyes is something else..., hot stove and flames aloft. Service spot on, taking every minute to explain the menu was satisfying and reassuring to know what your order inside out.

Overall a positive experience but the kitchen was very slow preparing the dishes we had ordered resulting in a longer than expected wait. We have previously dined here and know they can do better.

This place is so over priced. It's also pretensious. If you like paying $19 for brussel sprouts and $23 for tomatoes salad - this is your place. The food wasn't better than anything you could get at the grocery store deli.

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!

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.
