Overrated, not impressed

I've always wanted to try this restaurant, have walked past the Bay St location many times. We tried to have dinner there once but waited at a table for 15 minutes and wasn't even looked at so we got up and left. We tried the Eaton Centre location this time. Although the service was better, the experience was okay. I saw that the table next to us had ordered a meatball appetizer. When I asked if I could have that with a side of pasta, our server suggested that i have the pappardelle and bolognese as it was the same thing. I went with her advice but I disagree that it was the same. The tomato sauce looked much more rich with the meatballs than in my dish. I found it odd that they promoted the fresh pasta used for their ravioli but they didn't use fresh pasta throughout. That said, the pappardelle itself was tender. The tiramisu was probably some of the best that I've had, I make a point of trying it everywhere I go. If I return, it would likely be for coffee and dessert because we happened to be walking by. I miss the City Grill that used to be in this location, the menu and service was great.

Overpriced and tasteless

A group of us went to the Mercatto in the Eaton Centre for lunch. I had the eggplant sandwich with salad. There was one 1mm thick slice of eggplant on my sandwich with 2 tbsp of sauce and nothing else. The salad was about a cup of spring mix with 3 slices of celery and 4 slices of green onion. Since we were a group of 11, they charged 18% grautuity. So, my meal that cost them about 50 cents to put together, cost me $19.00 with tax and tip. I really detest the Eaton Centre Mercatto. The food is way too salty and the value for your money is non-existent. I tried to go somewhere else but the guest of honour likes this place, for some reason. Take my advice, go anywhere besides the Eaton Centre Mercatto. One girl in our party had to send back her pizza as there was something rotten on it and the she didn't like the shrimp pasta she ordered. My colleague ordered the special of the day, orzo with scallops. There were 3 scallops on top of maybe 3/4 cup of orzo and it was $22.00! I don't understand why this place is so popular. There are much better choices in the vicinity for a lot less money and less sodium.

One person ordered the pork chop, it came with lentils, which proved to be to much, it would better if served with lightly steam vegetables, maybe rapini, etc., Our Caprese salads were wonderful, the salmon excellent and the linguine wonderful, maybe a few more shrimp. The wine and prosecco were wonderful.

What a wonderful experience! I brought 18 friends with me to enjoy a great meal, and Mercatto didn't disappoint. From Stefano (General Manager), to Alex (Operations Manager) and Antonio (Server), all the staff were exceptional at ensuring our group had a wonderful evening. The food was amazing, and I look forward to eating there again in the very near future.

Always been a fan of this restaurant. Great place to go, pre-concert, because they have a great selection of food that can be served quickly, and staff always accommodate. Also good for long patio dinners, where one can explore the incredible wine list.

In a city that is thankfully replete with restaurants, there are a few that I continue to frequent year after year. Mercatto is on that short list. It's a great joy to sit at your table with friends. Your usual excellent service is impacted only by your amazing ability to fill every seat every time we are there. But the waits are never long, and besides, there's never a rush to exit. We enjoy the chance to enjoy the ambiance, food and an excellent Primitivo. All wonderful. Thanks to the staff for another great evening at Mercatto. Cheers and bet wishes!

We will not be visiting this location again. When we arrived at the restaurant we were rushed to place the order as the waitress had mentioned she had another party coming in for lunch. As we began to order, my colleague was advised that the entrée she wanted was not available. The waitress then mentioned that there was actually a couple other options not available on the menu. So we decided on entrees that were available. We then requested a side of fries with our sandwich and were told that there was not fries available on that day and that we should get a salad or soup. I requested that she speak to the kitchen to make sure, turns out that there is fries. Although our meals were okay, my colleagues and I decided that we will not be recommending this location to our colleagues in the future.
