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 !

This was our first visit to Mercato West, and we were celebrating my birthday. We were greeted promptly and shown to our table. Our server explained the 'family' menu and offered some recommendations. Throughout the night our server was never far away if we needed anything and they were always timely in removing dirty plates and minding our table. We had the deep fried rice and cheese balls and they were excellent, nice golden crust and filling with good proportions of ingredients. Our first course pasta dishes were more than enough for a group of four - the gnocchi were very soft and mixed with a delicious ricotta and swiss chard sauce, while the pasta was home made noodles in tomato sauce with delicious wild boar. We had the steak and lamb for main course. The steak was very tender and cooked to perfection, medium rare with a flame-seared crust. The lamb was a bit overdone, but was served with a wonderful couscous. Our sides, brussel sprouts and mushrooms were terrific. We had cheesecake and hazelnut torte for dessert, and they were OK. We will definitely visit Mercato again.

I have been to this restaurant many times (It's my favorite). This time however the food was a little below their usual standard. Our steak was under cooked and was full of gristle. I hope that next time I go it will be as good as it usually is, or I might have to find a new favorite restaurant.

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.
