    I had the worst experience today. Ordered a dish and did not like it at all, had one bite only. Paid full amount. Poor hospitality. No one followed up with me as I sat with the family and had no dinner. The dish was not well prepared by chef. I did not expect this from a restaurant like this. Seriously when you are with family and experience something like this it's not good. Greatly disappointed !

    Ambiance and service was great, food wasn’t as good as downtown 4th street location. Pastas were so so and the olives were embarrassing, please take them off the menu or give them free. $7 for a 1/4 jar of olives is plain dumb.

    A couple we know, who owns a restaurant wanted to know our favorite place to eat, outside our home. Of course, we took them to Mercato's, because every time we've been, since it opened, I've enjoyed everything I've ordered, as has my husband and whoever else we've been with. What more is there to say! The best ribs, chicken and whatever else we've eaten. Since both my husband and I can't eat meat or fish, for health reasons, we don't go as often, but do take others when we have company from out of town. One thing I miss very much is the broccolini. that's been off the menu for too long! I will come oftener if it's available. Thank you for listening and accommodating. We go to both West and Mission.

    The food was amazing - as usual. The sharing option allows us to try so many things. The portions always feel like they are going to be insufficient and then I leave having overeaten every time. The service is top notch, your glass is never empty and the waiter just slips in and out of the table without interrupting or causing a scene. Checks on you once at a sufficient time after receiving each course and they are always charming. The waiters at this restaurant are the perfect example of when I don't mind tipping for fabulous service.

    Absolutely amazing evening. Service was amazing. Our server listened to us an then picked our wine, a delicious Shiraz and then ensured we would have the perfect compliment to our meal by suggesting we add mussels as an appetizer. We had a truly five star evening at Mercato West!

    We are frequent visitors for Mercato West. The only issue I had was I requested a quiet and bright table location as my parents are hard of hearing and my father needs light to see. Otherwise, all was great.

    Laura, our server, was amazing. Offered advice, was professional and engaging; I thought she she one of the best servers we have had in Calgary. Mercato is lucky to have her. Food was delicious, like usual. We love the octopus and the caprese salad. Our red wine was really good as well. My husband and I really enjoy an evening here.

    In true Italian style, the Mercato dinner menu is created with shared plates in mind. For example, dig into some bruschetta or a caprese salad made with buffalo mozzarella, then tear into the tiger prawn risotto. The restaurant’s two locations (Fourth Street Southwest as well as 85th Street Southwest) each feature a market stcoked with fine Italian foods.
