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 !

I held a Celebration of Life luncheon for 48 family and friends on August 10th. All my guests were blown away by the amazing food and service. From the pizza appetizers to the mushroom risotto and tagliatelle. Let’s not forget the incredible Florentine steak and grilled chicken. And finally the decadent dessert trays. Franca and her team made the day so special for me I’ll never forget it.

Mercato is so much like most dining places nowadays, no sound-absorbing materials in ceiling, floor, or walls, so it can be a little noisy. server was not very attentive. we got our meal/drinks but felt we had to "pry" it out of her. food usually tastes really good but penne had too much salt, this time. the restaurant is a bit pricey..

We had family in from out of town who always request to go to Mercato West when they’re here. As always, the supper was amazing. We shared mussels, 3 pastas (gnocchi, penne, & risotto), the lamb, veal, and cauliflower side. Every single dish was delicious. We love supporting local business and can’t wait to go back!

On my reservation you asked for any special request and I noted it was for my wife’s birthday. There was no acknowledgement of this so that was a fail. Why give the opportunity to ask for this kind of thing if you don’t use the information? Missed opportunity for making a good experience great.

We come to the restaurant quite often. Last night for the first time we had two concerns. The burrata was not great - very firm. Also we asked to have the veal chop carved as it was to be shared with many other dishes we were told that it could not be done. the rest of our experience was good.

Arrived at 5:23 for a 5:30 seating, we were asked to wait outside, as they were not open?? While a bunch of staff was roaming aimlessly around. We finally get in and we are offered seats at the bar??? We ask for a table, we get one, but are told next time when we book to request a table??? A special request for a table in a restaurant. Well... Order the veal chop med rare, we are “told” the chef cooks it well done.,, we get it nice and dry,,, Disappointing... will not return.

We had family come in from Saskatoon - they were very impressed with the food! They said Mercato should make a new location in Saskatoon. Thank you for being a place that I can always count on to prepare a lovely meal and a great atmosphere for my family.

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.
