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 !

Delicious as always. The most fabulous way to head into lockdown. We’ve been away from Mercato and Calgary for nearly a year and we have missed it every day since!

As always - the service we received was exceptional. Very professional server who is extremely knowledgeable on wine selection and pairing. The food at Mercato, in our opinion is some of the best that the city has to offer.

Outstanding across the board as usual. Great service. Server had a recommendation for us on a salad that was out of this world and was different than what we were originally going to order and we were very appreciative for his efforts

been a regular customer over the last few years and last night was exceptional. Great wine, food was cooked to perfection and delicious. West coast mussels were amazing!!! Peter and Franca have done a great job providing table separation with barriers but not making it feel like isolation. Greg and Petar always take good care of us and last night was no exception. Congratulations to Ashley and thanks for the Amaretto.

Dinner at Mercato during Covid was a fabulous experience. They have glass partitions to separate tables without seeming unfriendly and closed off. Cutlery was wrapped for your protection and everything was spotless. Francois was our server and couldn’t have been more knowledgeable and charming. Food was amazing as always!

We had a wonderful dinner experience on a special occasion. Firstly, they had the best COVID measures in place we have seen since the pandemic began. We felt very comfortable and were appreciative. The menu choice were great, the food fantastic and service impeccable. We loved the new experience of order family size dishes served in bowls and then we took what we wanted to our plates. Very homey. Impeccably clean and while a modern style restaurant, it still had the ambiance of Olde Italy.

In true Italian style, the Mercato dinner menu is created with shared plates in mind.
